Rockstar aim to fix GTA Online’s current security problems in upcoming Title update

A fix is on the way for the security vulnerabilities discovered earlier this week in Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar have said today. Players began efforts to alert Rockstar to the issues en masse over the weekend, after some nefarious types took advantage of the issues to disrupt the game for other people. Rockstar Support have tweeted that a security-related update is coming, but didn’t give a specific timeframe for it yet. Read more

Grand Theft Auto Trilogy finally returns to Steam, with 50% off

The trilogy will remain on sale on Steam until February 2. Being a fan of Grand Theft Auto is not the most fruitful endeavour right now, unless you’re massively into GTA Online. It’s been nearly a decade since the last title in the series, Grand Theft Auto 5, and we’ve heard next to nothing about the illusive Grand Theft Auto 6. The only release we’ve been privy to since 2013 was quite the mess at launch. You can take a look at the trailer for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition here. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy –…

GTA Online’s Drug Wars update sets you up with an acid lab truck

GTA Online has kicked off the Los Santos Drug Wars, launching six new story missions where you help some hippies chase down the equipment they need to set up a mobile acid lab in their truck. I say hippies, I mean bloodthirsty thugs who happen to like psychedelics. The update has also increased security for the popular Cayo Perico heist, which was one of the main ways people earned their money, so folks are understandably grumpy. Maybe they can sell some acid instead? Read more

GTA 5’s Nervous Ron returns in GTA Online’s trippy next update

Rockstar have teased a new story update coming to GTA Online next week, which pits players against a ramshackle bunch of rival drug dealers. The Los Santos Drug Wars kick off on December 13th with the first part of the update. The short post on Rockstar’s Newswire blog isn’t exactly awash with details at the moment, but it does give an idea about the kind of dodgy characters and shenanigans you’ll get to encounter, including an angry looking luchador and the return of GTA 5’s Nervous Ron.

Take-Two scrambles to strike leaked GTA 6 videos and screenshots

Take-Two has been issuing copyright strikes to take down much of the leaked GTA 6 content over the weekend. The weekend has brought Rockstar and its parent company, Take-Two, a lot of headaches. A massive amount of GTA 6 development videos and screenshots were published online by an anonymous leaker. GTA never suffered a leak at this scale, and the material understandably got published everywhere. The footage and screenshots showed various bits of gameplay, a Red Dead Redemption 2-like conversation system, some vehicle action, and a bit of the open world. More importantly, it featured the rumoured protagonist, and seemingly…

A lot of Grand Theft Auto 6 screenshots and footage appears to leak online

The leaks seem to lineup with earlier reports on the game. What appears to be an incredibly massive Grand Theft Auto 6 leak has appeared online, so be wary if you’re trying to avoid spoilers. Earlier today, a large number of videos and screenshots of what looks to be an early build of what is presumably an early build of GTA 6 have cropped up online. If these leaks are real, what has been shown lines up with what Bloomberg reported earlier this year on the upcoming sequel from Rockstar. GTA 6, or whatever the next game in the series…

The GTA 6 leaks benefit precisely no one

A huge number of videos purporting to show in-game development footage for GTA 6 have been plastered across various internet forums this morning, because apparently no one can wait until a video game is actually anywhere near finished before they feel compelled to spoil it for all and sundry. The 80-some clips seemingly show everything from full, in-game scenarios to clearly unfinished bits of grey boxing, but you won’t find a link to them here, because the truth is, they’re simply not worth looking at. What possible benefit could they provide anyone right here, right now? The leaker gets their…

An extremely thorough grading of the best rain in video games

In the giant jumbled word cloud of all my qualities and traits, I’m willing to bet that “pluviophile” would be one of the biggest words. I adore rain. Whenever it starts, I tend to drop whatever I’m doing – work, dishes, significant other – and I’ll be out frolicking in the downpour before they’ve hit the floor. Because I love rain so much, I hold games to an almost unfair standard when it comes to the simulation of precipitation. How in the world can a videogame come close to emulating that wonderful, transcendental feeling of being outside in the middle…
