To cut a long, boring and convoluted story short the launch of Rockstar’s online branch of their current Grand Theft Auto game has been a tad problematic for some gamers, proving for many a difficult game to access and save progress on.

As millions of lonely, socially awkward and sun depraved individuals threw a collective hissy fit over the problems with the online game it became increasingly apparent that developers Rockstar needed to put together some sort of compensation reward for the legions of whiney faced gurners.

Following an update which will further sort out remaining problems with the online game, players will now receive a special ‘stimulus package‘, ( in an effort to silence their petulant howls of passive rage) as Rockstar’s official website explains:

  • You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.

  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.

  • We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.

  • Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.

Super Tory Boy: The Game

With the country in pretty poor shape right now, (current UK deficit stands at £1.2 trillion), most of the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the present Government, in particular the Conservative party.

Trust the Internet to throw up a light hearted approach to apportioning blame, through the medium of a nifty little platform game called Super Tory Boy, an homage to Super Mario. Players can chose between three characters; Dave, Gideon and Boris.

Is This The Rumoured Feature Which Could Sink The New Xbox?

There’s been a lot of chatter on forums and through Twitter recently of a rumoured feature for the next-gen Xbox which could seriously damage it’s competitive edge against Sony and the PS4.

Up till now there’s been nothing more than conjecture but the overall feeling was that this feature could be a make-or-break deal for consumers. Now it seems there’s a little more light on the subject thanks to an article over at Games Radar, which contains details that the next Xbox may have to remain online at all times when in use, a claim which has been deemed as ‘entirely legitimate’.

This revelation coupled with recent leaks about the new console being unable to play previously owned or rented titles due to activation codes does not bode well for Xbox owners and fans. If you’d like to know more about this story then chart a course for HERE.

Bioshock Infinite’s Trailer Is An 80s Themed Treat.

This new trailer for the forthcoming game Bioshock: Infinite is a retrotastic tribute to the late 70s. It plays like one of those terrible educational films once screened in schools. Only with this one we learn more about the mysteries of the floating city of Columbia and the self proclaimed prophet Zachary Comstock.

Is Fallout The Game To Become Fallout The TV Series?

For anyone who’s played Bethesda’s grim, apocalyptic RPG Fallout this news will certainly spike your interest.

Internet rumour suggests that there may be plans in the pipeline for a Fallout TV series after someone discovered that the gaming giant Bethesda had filled for a trademark which covered the rights to the Fallout name in regards to ‘an on-going television programme set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world.’

Adding even more fuel to the rumour fire was the announcement earlier this month on Twitter by voice actor Eric Todd who informed his followers to expect to hear more from his character ThreeDog in the future, many fans initially thought he had inadvertently leaked news of a Fallout 4 game, but following the discovery of the trademark filing many now believe that ThreeDog will feature in a TV series based on the game.
