Rustler’s “medieval GTA 2” formula could have been a real dark horse

Rustler has such a great, great concept behind it. It’s Medieval Grand Theft Auto 2. That’s it. That’s the game. I wish I could finish this post there. I wish there was no more for you to read than that. Because the theoretical Rustler which exists inside your head, after reading the phrase “medieval GTA 2”, is probably a complete riot of delight. Alas, however. After six months in early access, Rustler is getting its full release on August 31st. And unless it is entirely transformed from the iteration of the game currently available on Steam, you are probably better…

GTA Online player claims to have figured out why the game loads so slow, offers fix

A GTA Online modder has apparently been able to reduce loading times by up to 70% and has offered the fix to players wanting to cut down their own loading times, too.Modder T0ST has published an article digging into the infamously appalling loading times in GTA Online. After doing some research and writing a unique program to interact with the game files, T0ST managed to reduce loading times by as much as 70%.Turns out that the game doesn’t necessarily struggle to load thanks to its open-world nature, but because there’s a CPU bottleneck that will be most felt on low-…

GTA 6 could feature smarter NPCs thanks to newly uncovered Rockstar patent

A new Take-Two patent has been discovered that appears based on improving the intelligence and navigation capabilities of AI.The patent, which registers a “system and method for virtual navigation in a gaming environment” has been posted on Reddit in the last few days, though the actual document was originally filed by Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two, back in October 2020.In the simplest terms possible, the patent is geared at making non-player characters’ (that’s NPCs, for short) artificial intelligence a little smarter and more organic, in an attempt to move away from current AI solutions that are starting to feel a little out-dated.The…
