Gamers have been looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2 for a long time now. So far, we have seen trailers, but it has been mostly cut scenes instead of actual gameplay elements. We now have a new trailer that shows us a bunch of cutscenes and mixes that in with actual gameplay footage, and the game looks epic. The slightly longer than six-minute video gives us a glimpse at most aspects of the game from the poker mini-game to schlepping your way around the open world, fighting hand-to-hand, catching fugitives, and shooting. You can easily tell what is cutscenes and what is gameplay by looking... Read more...
PC gamers who felt left out by Rockstar because of no mention of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to the PC should be thrilled to hear that's not the case. One of the developers on the game accidentally let the existence of the PC version slip by posting it to a LinkedIn profile. The profile lists that the dev worked on Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This is good news for PC gamers as it is the first direct confirmation that the game will land on platform. Pity was taken on the hapless developer by VG247 and his name was blocked out of the screenshot, so maybe he won’t get... Read more...
Red Dead Redemption 2 has nearly passed into lore and has been accused of being vaporware by more than a few gamers over the years. The game was originally talked up with the first trailer back in October of 2016 with the promise of a 2017 launch. That 2017 launch never happened, but we did get the second trailer for the game in September of 2017. Rockstar also issued an apology in 2017 for delaying the game again, saying at the time, "We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready. We are really excited to bring... Read more...
PC gamers are very angry at Rockstar right now after what they claim are unfair bannings that the publisher is handing out left and right. The wide-spanning bans began on March 23 and complaints from a myriad of PC gamers were posted on Reddit, Twitter, Rockstar support forums, and other GTA communities. The gamers are saying that their accounts had been falsely banned for 30 days with no opportunity for an appeal. Rockstar has been very quiet on the subject so far with speculation suggesting that the bans are an issue with the latest tunables update or some sort of issue when participating in... Read more...
GTA fans will be sad to read this latest rumor about the future of the franchise. According to sources claiming to know the plans at Rockstar, the next game in the franchise, widely expected to be called Grand Theft Auto 6, won't launch for years to come. Specifically, the launch is tipped for 2022, four years into the future. Along with the tip on when the game might launch also comes rumor about where the game will be set. The game is said to be set again in the Rockstar version of south Florida called Vice City. The original Grand Theft Auto Vice City has been a favorite with gamers for the... Read more...

Gamers are used to having plenty of storage on most game consoles. Even if you buy the basic versions of the Xbox One or PS4, you have 500GB of storage at your disposal. One of the caveats with a small console like the Nintendo Switch is that you can't fit a normal hard drive inside something so thin, so you end up with a small amount of internal flash storage. The Switch has 32GB of internal storage to be exact. All the system software eats up about 6GB of that total leaving gamers with just 26GB of internal storage to store downloadable games and system updates. With Nintendo using cartridges...

The Grand Theft Auto series is known for encouraging in-game theft and murder, but could extortion also be added to the list of crimes? Many gamers are complaining that the Grand Theft Auto Online’s latest DLC “Import/Export” is just way too expensive. What is the the new DLC? The Import/Export DLC is free and adds new ways for players who have achieved CEO status to spend their well-earned (or well-stolen) money. CEO’s can purchase storage facilities to store stolen cars. The CEO’s must first steal the cars and drive them back to their warehouse with minimal damage to the vehicle. The vehicles... Read more...
After publishing two teasers over the weekend that had obvious nods to a sequel in the Red Dead franchise, Rockstar Games today confirmed the development of Red Dead Redemption 2. According to the developer, Red Dead Redemption 2 is on target for a Fall 2017 release, but given its past track record, we should probably tack on at least a few months onto the launch window just to be on the safe side. And if the game’s official announcement isn’t enough for you, you’ll be happy to know that a trailer for the Western-themed game will bow this Thursday, October 20th at 11AM EST. Rockstar describers... Read more...
While the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V was fashionably late to the release party, PC gamers have been blasted with the powerful and quite fun full video recording and editing capabilities. Console gamers have sat on the sidelines with their hands in their pockets (Rockstar Games initially said that this the editor would be a PC exclusive, before later backing down from those claims), but it looks as though the wait will soon be over. Rockstar Games this week announced that the Rockstar Editor will make its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles next month. In addition to making the editor... Read more...
There's no such thing as an official Grand Theft Auto game until there's been a bit of controversy leading to its removal from at least one set of store shelves. It's a right of passage for the GTA series, if you will, and GTA V -- an excellent game, we might add -- just earned its place among the franchise's previous titles by ruffling feathers in Australia, leading to its ousting from Target stores. At issue this time around is the "game's depictions of violence against women." Jim Cooper, general manager of corporate affairs for Target, explained to The Guardian that customers have voiced a...

Grand Theft Auto V is a huge hit, and while it’s lighting up many a console, to date there is no version for the PC, despite a petition. This isn’t totally unexpected, as releasing the game on consoles and then rolling out a PC version months later is what Rockstar Games has done with previous GTA editions, but it’s galling for PC gamers that the company hasn’t said anything affirmative about whether the game will be available on the PC at all. However, industry scuttlebutt is that a PC version of GTA V is coming in early 2014. Eurogamer says it has multiple sources that... Read more...
Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V has been an unmitigated success, generating $800 million in sales on its first day and clearing a cool billion in three, but it’s apparently not without its problems. Well, “problem”, singular. Multiple users have complained that after upgrading a vehicle or completing a mission and parking car in a garage in GTA V, the car will disappear entirely, or the upgrades will vanish. “We have received some reports about problems with cars and garages, particularly after upgrading and then completing a mission, and are looking into this now....
