Red Dead Redemption coming to PS Now on PC

Red Dead Redemption [official site] is coming ot PC! Sort of. Rockstar’s cowboy adventure is considered by many to be their finest work, but it’s also their only game not to mosey into our town after its console release. Now that’s changing thanks to the game’s arrival on the PlayStation Now game streaming service on December 6th.

Red Dead Redemption Remastered Rumoured For PC

I should warn you: Ian Video Games is wearing a cowboy hat. Worse: he’s saying things like “ah fair reckon”. Someone’s filled his head with dreams of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption [official site] and ah fair reckon it’s you, The Internet. As ever with our Ian, some of what he’s spouting is tripe. No, Ian, no one has found a poster revealing a new Red Dead sequel. However, when Ian says “I tell you whut, them Rockstar varmints are cookin’ up a PC remaster of Red Dead Redemption hoo-eee doggie!” then spits a brown mouthful of ‘chaw’ (it’s toffee), well, that hasn’t been immediately disproven at least.

Peace Out: Lindsay Lohan’s GTA V Lawsuit Dismissed

Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive (the parent company of Rockstar Games) has been dismissed. The case was over images on official Grand Theft Auto V [official site] marketing material and a character in the game called Lacey Jonas, both of which Lohan claimed were based on herself.

As per the original filing (which I’ve embedded below), Lohan claimed that Rockstar “misappropriated Plaintiff’s image, likeness, voice and persona without consent from the Plaintiff purely for commercial trade purposes and financial gain.”

Grand Theft Auto Online Going A Bit TrackMania

I’ve been hoping Rockstar will add more singleplayer stuff to Grand Theft Auto V [official site] rather than focusing on its multiplayer, but I can hardly be upset by them turning Los Santos into some sort of Hot Wheels-y, TrackMania-ish raceground. Grand Theft Auto Online’s Cunning Stunts update (ooh those scamps!) will bring aerial raceways with loops, pipes, and rings of fire, not to mention new vehicles to race round them. It’ll launch next week. For now, look at this wackiness:

Top Loader: GTA Online’s Next Expansion Out Next Week

I remember when Rockstar released the second trailer for Grand Theft Auto V [official site] towards the end of 2012. I got a text from my mum after it’d been on the telly saying something along the lines of: “Wow, I don’t agree with what that computer game is about, but the advert looks like something from a movie.” She was right, it did, and to this day few games have matched the standard.

It seems the sandbox crime sim hasn’t lost its knack for stylish cinematics either, having just launched the trailer for GTA Online‘s latest expansion Further Adventures in Finance and Felony. It’s out on June 7, and here’s what it’s all about:

GTA Online Updates To Add Stunts And Contraband

Of course it’s called Cunning Stunts. Grand Theft Auto 5 wouldn’t be a Grand Theft Auto game without the po-faced plot and crass punnery, but I’m pleased that GTA Online is bit-by-bit acknowledging the other side of itself: mainly, that its silliness and not crimes that its players most want to perpetrate within its spaces. So it is that a future GTA Online update will bring with it a new set of stunt-track making props, which will let you create things like that pictured above, among much else.
