Grand Theft Auto Online Plays Thanksgiving Handegg

The Yankees win the pennant!

29! 42! 38! 87! 69! Hut! Hut! Hike! And that's how the Pilgrims came in 1492 to the land we now know as the United States of A. One genocidal colonisation later, Thanksgiving in November is now a happy time for families to come together to eat pumpkins carved into the shape of turkeys, bicker, argue, threaten to call the police for real this year, and shout "29! 42! 38! 87! 69! Hut! Hut! Hike!" while shoving each other, just as the Pilgrims did all those years ago. This I have learned from watching American sitcoms.

This year, you can even hop into Grand Theft Auto Online [official site] to do pushing in a new American Foosbalt-inspired mode. Numbers not included.

'Running Back' is a permanent addition to the Adversary Modes lineup, with two teams of cars shoving each other on hemmed-in roadways. You'll be able to play round Raton Canyon Bridge, La Mesa Bridge, and Zancudo Tunnel.

"Two teams (a total of 4-8 players) square off from opposing sides of a roadway," Rockstar explain. "The elusive Runner, behind the wheel of a Benefactor Panto, must go the distance and get across the end zone line at the far end of the highway with the help of their offensive teammates in BF Biftas. Meanwhile, their defensive-minded opponents (also in Biftas) must ruthlessly block, crash and pummel their way to try to stop them."

Can you stop the car-egg from hitting a splashdown?
