You don’t want to know how much it costs to play GTA 5 in 4K on your PC

Surprising no one, Grand Theft Auto 5 has had a smashing debut on PC, quickly becoming the most played third-party game on Steam just days after its release. With its detailed customization options, exclusive video editor and additional radio station, gamers who already owned the game are finding plenty of reasons to jump back into Los Santos.

But we all know that the real reason to get GTA 5 on PC is to see Rockstar’s game in stunning 4K. Unfortunately, most of us are never going to have that chance. More →

The best reason to buy GTA 5 on PC, even if you already own it on console

Starting tomorrow, many gamers are going to be faced with a difficult choice. Is it worth paying for Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, even if you already own it on console? Some of us who upgraded to the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game already own two copies, so why would we buy it a third time this week?

If the stunning visuals and the custom radio station aren’t enough to convince you, maybe the Rockstar Editor will be. More →

Watch the incredible 20-minute short film created inside of Team Fortress 2

Machinima is the art of manipulating a computer graphics engine in order to create a cinematic production. This art form was popularized in the mainstream by Red vs. Blue, a Halo machinima series that has been running since 2003. Not long ago, Valve decided to give its community the ability to make their own home movies with the Source Filmmaker software.

There have been plenty of impressive productions since then, but this past weekend, we were treated to one of the best yet.

Video: GTA 5 looks way better on PC than it does on PS4 or PS3

One of the most anticipated PC games of 2015 already came out on PS3 and Xbox 360 two years ago. That’s right, I’m talking about Grand Theft Auto V, the perpetually delayed bestseller that’s finally coming to PC later this month. For some people, an upgrade to the PC version will be the second or third time they’ve bought the game, so why spend another $60?

You have to beat this game in one go, because you can never play it again after you die

Until recently, gaming had never been much of a spectator sport. You played video games alone in your living room or online with a group of friends and strangers, but once you were done playing, you moved on to another, less-interactive medium.

But now, with the advent of Twitch and rising popularity of streaming, a few game designers are finally beginning to gear their projects towards the audience that watches people play games. More →

Get five Grand Theft Auto games for $17 on Amazon

With Online Heists launching this week in GTA Online and a PC release of Grand Theft Auto V right around the corner, the hysteria for Rockstar Games’ most popular franchise is back in a big way. Unfortunately, all those returning players have put a strain on the online servers, which means accessing the heists is difficult, if not impossible, at certain times of day.

So while Rockstar attempts to get GTA V back up and running smoothly, why not play a few GTA games that actually work? More →

Predicting failure: 5 highly anticipated video games that could flop in 2015

I think it’s fair to assume that most gamers are glad to see 2014 in the rear-view mirror. There were a few incredible successes in the video game industry, but 2014 will be remembered for its disappointments. We certainly hope that 2015 can pick up the slack, but, inevitably, there will be a few stinkers deposited on to store shelves.

Longtime Mac user tries to buy a PC for the first time, walks away totally confused

We’ve written a lot about what happens when an iPhone user switches to Android (and vice-versa) but it’s been a while since we’ve written about a longtime Mac user who has switched to using a Windows-based PC.
