Total Converts: How To Go Walking In Grand Theft Auto IV

Total Converts is a new weekly column about mods, maps, models, and anything player-created which you can use to amend or append your games. I stopped playing Grand Theft Auto IV's missions at the moment where they became too objectionable and turgid to continue. I started to enjoy playing Grand Theft Auto IV almost immediately afterwards, when I began to experiment with the mods available…

GTA V In Cars, Guns, Strippers & Posturing Shocker

There will be a new GTA game soon. Maybe it'll be on PC. It has three characters, all of which are violent, sweary men. It has some improvements to the graphics. It's spent a lot on music and voice-acting. It has the same sort of gags as the last dozen GTA games/expansions, but with different words. It really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really,…

Vaguely Does It: PC GTA V “Up For Consideration”

The recent torrent of marketing and marketing masquerading as news surrounding the latest GTA V trailer came with one unsettling ommission - any mention of a PC version of Rockstar's newest open world misanthropy odyssey. There's still no definite news of a release for the One True Format, but Rockstar have at least not ruled it out when the question was put them.

Racing On Phat Ice: iCEnhancer 2.0 Released

The only bad thing about the newly released ICEnhancer 2.0 for GTA IV is the sense of sadness that a setting as beautiful as its recreation of New York will never be used again. Imagine the stories these streets could still have to tell, if not for our constant thirst for new worlds to conquer. Sigh. Anyway. As much as GTA IV was a system…

Smashier And Grabbier: Every GTA For £4.99

Edit: Gamersgate pack now reduced to £4.99, matching Steam. Gamers Gate came unto the people and did say, "dost thou desire a grand dose of vehicular theft at a price pleasing to these times of economic hardship?" And the people didst sayeth 'yea' and 'that sounds like quite a good idea, I am broke'. But now, for this weekend only, Steam has pronounced that it…

Smash & Grab: Every GTA Game For £8.74

Cripes - how would you like the complete Grand Theft Auto series for under £9? There are two ways to do this. You can get yourself a balaclava and steal them from a shop, but it's high-risk, and some would argue morally questionable. Or you could hand over that much money to Gamers Gate, where they're selling GTA 1, GTA 2, GTA III, GTA: Vice…

Toxic Avenger: The 90 Min GTA IV Movie

Two years for a little less than two hours: those are the numbers behind The Trashmaster, a feature-length machinima flick made entirely using GTA IV PC and its video tools. Owing a hard-to-miss debt to Scorsese and likely to be pulled from the internet by the Rolling Stones' copyright lawyers any day now, this veritable labour of love is the flashy, violent tale of a…

GTA IV: The Lost And Damned review

At either end of 2009, two “episode packs” were released for the 360 version of GTA IV: The Lost And Damned, and The Ballad Of Gay Tony. As of a week or two back, the two have been released together for the PC, not requiring the original game to run. It’s an awful lot of game. I’ve finished the both, and so it’s about time…

GTAgate: How Was It For You?

That Spore kerfuffle earlier in the year sure seems like spilt milk compared to Rockstar's GTA IV balls-up. The multiple DRM systems have proven to be the least of the troubled port's problems - seems Kieron was lucky to even get into the thing, never mind that half his graphics were AWOL. Everyone's having their own miseries with it, it seems. So, below the cut:…

Grand Theft Autorun

So - GTA's out and its multi-step installation program is causing gnashing of teeth. Take this proper-AIM growl-piece, for example. As is only right, as it's incredibly annoying. However, the main reason to justify the post was to stress... well, you only have to do the Rockstar online club thing if you want to play online games or upload stuff. After installing, you can skip…

The Many Doormen Of GTA IV

IGN's got a remarkably long Q&A up with some anonymous mouthpiece of the Rockstar hivemind, specifically detailing all the various copy protections and mandatory login guff next week's murder simulator will require to install and run. There will, it seems, be quite a few barriers between you and your hooker-killing; the internet will not be happy.

The Zombie Invasion

How many zombies does it take to make a meme? How many zombies is too many zombies? And why is every game suddenly obsessed with them? Well, even more so than usual. It certainly seems like the en vogue way to drum up renewed interest in a game right now - no less than three usually non-zombie-centric titles have made the headlines in the last…

GTA IV PC: Exciting Specs Talk

Via VG247, the official recommended system specs for the upcoming PC port of of Big Steal Car 4. Oddly, since their discovery yesterday, they've been pulled off the official Games For Windows site and replaced with a 'Coming Soon'. Theories? Either they were wrong, it's the notorious Rockstar info-chokehold at play again, or they've been taken down because the entire internet misinterpreted 'recommended' as 'minimum'.…

Pretending To Be In Germany: GC Round-up #1

Annoyingly we're not at this year's Leipzig Games Convention, because we're a) stupid b) poor c) lazy and d) unfit for public consumption. We did intend to be, but things fall apart, the centre of PC game blogging cannot hold. But let's pretend. Imagine we are actually there, and the list of links below is actually stuff we've seen and written ourselves. It'll be fun!

GTA IV PC Release Confirmed (By Me, And I’m Lying)

As GTA IV enters its extensive beta-testing period on 360 and PS3, the question remains exactly when it will be released on PC. Okay, sure, they've yet to announce it for PC, but tradition dictates that it should be with us within the next year. And if that tradition continues, it will be a superior version designed for considerably more handsome people. Well, we've been…
