We’re less than two weeks away from the long awaited release of Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, but you won’t have to wait that long to see just how incredible the port is going to look. On Thursday, Rockstar Games released a trailer for the PC version of the game running at an eye-popping 60 frames-per-second. More →
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.
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?
I’ll show you. More →
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.
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 →
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.
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. Macworld’s John Moltz recently tried to buy a PC for his gamer son and he came away completely confused by all of the different options offered by Lenovo and other PC OEMs. More →
After a series of frustrating delays, Rockstar Games has finally landed on a release date for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. The game will hit PC on March 24th, 2015, four months after launching on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Rockstar admits that delaying the game wasn’t an easy decision, but the PC version needs a few extra weeks of polish and testing. More →
2014 had so much potential.
Watch Dogs was going to change the face of gaming as we knew it. Destiny was going to bring MMO conventions to the console in the most incredible mash-up of the generation. Assassin’s Creed Unity was going to revitalize one of the most popular franchises of the past decade.
But none of that happened.
There’s no way that Rockstar Games expects everyone who picked up Grand Theft Auto V on last-gen consoles to return for the remaster on PS4, Xbox One and PC, but the developer is throwing in so many bells and whistles that even the staunchest of skeptics are going to have a hard time avoiding a second visit a Los Santos. On Tuesday, IGN revealed that the current-gen version of GTA V will feature a first-person mode, a mode which has been rumored for weeks. More →
