Ever since the release of Rockstar’s sandbox, open-world game Grand Theft Auto V we’ve kept a close eye on the rise of actor Steven Ogg.
Ogg, who provided the voice and was motion captured for the game’s deranged and depraved protagonist Trevor, has since popped up filling out roles in Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead and more recently Westworld and his latest appearance in a viral fan film for GTA:V is garnering a load of attention.
Ogg once again reprises his gaming role of Trevor but this time in the flesh as he guides a player around the virtual reality version of the hit game.
I doubt there’s anything in this world funnier than an angry Scotsman losing his shit playing a video game. The video above uploaded by YouTuber Byze features a caddy race across a bridge infested with giant windmills.
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.
By now if you’re a gamer like me you’ll have been clocking in the hours playing Rockstar’s enormously entertaining Grand Theft Auto V.
The latest installment to their highly successful and profitable franchise has a multitude of new features, missions, tasks, side missions, playable characters, vehicles and weapons for you to enjoy as you explore their unique sandbox environment.
But have game developers Rockstar thought of everything this time around? Thanks to YouTube channel Defend The House all your enquiries about the game have been finally answered in their GTA V Mythbusters videos:
After months of fan-boy speculation Rockstar Games finally officially announced what every Grand Theft Auto fan was waiting for, the release date…well, the rough release date…for GTA V:
Today, we’re proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto V is expected to launch worldwide spring 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V takes place in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California in the largest and most thriving game-world we have ever created set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and for miles beyond – from the tops of the mountains to the depths of the ocean.
Starting next week November 5, 2012, Grand Theft Auto V will become available for pre-order everywhere and fans can expect a host of new information to become available in November.
Look for downloadable desktop versions of the brand new artwork above coming very soon.
There you have it, sounds like they’ve pulled out all the stops and to claim that it will be the largest game-world they’ve created is quite an exciting prospect when you consider the sheer scope of the original San Andreas. Also, are we in for a special treat with GTA V in the form of scuba gear or submersibles with their ‘…to the depths of the ocean‘, line? I sincerely hope so.
As the Internet debate rumbles on over Rockstar’s much anticipated official release date for Grand Theft Auto V, gamers have been getting themselves into a foaming tizzy over pretty much every rumour and suggestion of what the new game might contain.
Now it seems we have a video with very rough footage of early beta gameplay. Is this a fake? Maybe, maybe not. The movement of the vehicles in this clip are very similar to those in GTA IV but if this is an example of actual gameplay then I’m pretty sure Rockstar would have had the video removed from YouTube, which hasn’t happened yet.
Or how about this, Rockstar are indeed behind this video which they’ve dressed up to look like a fake to keep the buzz and hype going about they’re forthcoming title.
