GTA Online gets Lowriders DLC

gta5 lowriders 1

The latest Grand Theft Auto 5 update is hiding something exciting, it’s the return of the legendary custom shop, Benny’s Original Motor works.

Pay him a visit in Strawberry just south of the Olympic Freeway and he will be able to customize your cars as well as work on the new Lowriders, offering custom paint jobs colours and designs. He also has interiors with a variety of patterns and types, engine mods and air filters, rims & wheels, new steering wheels and custom shift levers. Pimp out with massive sound systems with subs in the back, and of course no Lowrider would be complete in its own state of Los Santos without hydraulics.

The Lowriders free DLC is out today and offers more than just cars. New clothing, hair and tattoos are available along with a personal vehicle remote, freemode weapon pickups, extra weapons on the creator, quick ammo restocks and more besides.

Do not forget to take a look at Lamar’s grand plans to take on the gangs of Los Santos and conquer the city’s thriving Lowrider scene.

Stories in open world games

Exploring in Open World Games is usually the reason for picking it up in the first place, however the genre really seems to be struggling when it comes to creating an involving and meaningful story, regardless of writing talent.

In this video, I’m going to try and analyse why that is and suggest possible room for improvement.

Grand Theft Auto 5: The Last Stand Update Now Available

actual_1412244603

Rockstar has released yet another batch of free, downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto 5 titled “The Last Stand” and it’s unfortunately not as impressive as it sounds.

This new expansion pack is now available to download and contains two new weapons, two new motorbikes and one fancy new sports car, as well as expanding the map creation tool. The in-game editor now lets players create Last Team Standing game modes, create custom maps and share them with the community.

The 1.17 update has also added several new Rockstar Verified Jobs which are listed below, more details can be found on the official site.

  • Alta (Rank 16, 2-8 Players)
    Less violent than the average apartment building residents’ committee meeting, this cramped LTS pits two wings of a building against each other. Try to stay on the rooftops, and look for long-ranged attacks across the courtyard and close-quarters clashes on the footbridge.

    Del Perro Freeway (Rank 23, 2-16 Players)
    Draw a line in the sand with this Del Perro Beach LTS. Teams start at either end of the beachfront houses. They can go at each other directly or take the pedestrian bridges across the WH to pick up weapons. Dr. Friedlander isn’t running his conflict resolution seminar this week.

    Grand Banks (Rank 9, 3-12 Players)
    As good a place as any to make a stand, three groups take the third way at the Grand Banks Steel foundry. Fight on the rooftops, in the tunnels, and along the gangways to be the only team that doesn’t get to fulfil their death wish.

    Hawick (Rank 16, 2-16 Players)
    Two teams snipe each other from rooftops or get down and dirty in the alleys with shotguns until there’s only one of them left. Hawick hasn’t seen this many unfortunate accidents since speedballs were cool in the 80s.

    Mount Josiah (Rank 29, 2-16 players)
    When the dust settles, and the rivers stop running with blood, who’ll be left on top of the second highest mountain in Southern San Andreas? Two teams fight to be king of the hill on the open, almost coverless slopes of Mount Josiah.

    N.O.O.S.E. (Rank 9, 2-8 Players)
    Something’s happening behind the mysterious chain link fences, and non-descript ‘government facility’ signs off the Palomino Freeway. Two teams have taken time off from spying on personal communications to fight for supremacy on the rooftops, walkways, and parking lots of the N.O.O.S.E. facility. Look up for the best weapons.

    Paleto Bay – Tanks (Rank 29, 2-16 Players)
    Some places get all the luck. Two teams face off with tanks and explosives and don’t mind if they turn the whole town to rubble. Who’ll be left standing in what’s left of Paleto Bay?

    Skyscraper (Rank 36, 2-16 Players)
    There’s no escape from Los Santos. One team tries to hold out at the top of a skyscraper construction site armed only with sniper rifles and heavy weapons. The other team launches a four pronged assault in Buzzard attack helicopters.

    Storm Drain (Rank 23, 2-16 Players)
    Gang warfare’s gotten really out of hand as two teams come at each other with tanks, motorbikes, and explosives in the concrete channel of the LS River. Try to stay in the storm drain, and don’t worry about flash flooding, there’s a drought in San Andreas after all.

    Tataviam Truckstop (Rank 16, 2-8 Players)
    Lonely truckers and enterprising hitchhikers are in for a scare as this pit stop on the Palomino sees its share of the action. Small scale LTS that’ll make good use of the Heavy Shotgun.

We’ll get Heists one day guys… maybe.

Grand Theft Auto – The Must See Youtube Comedy Hits

gta-v-logo-transback

Grand Theft Auto V, was always destined to be a huge success and with it deservingly selling more copies than the latest Call of Duty on the Xbox 360 it was one of the best games of 2013! With some gamer’s having to sell their Xbox 360’s to fund an all important Xbox One purchase, it left those fellow gamers (and myself) distraught and inconsolable that we never got round to finishing the game. This is why We need Grand Theft Auto V to release on Xbox One alongside PC; to be able to sleep at night knowing that all characters stories have ended well…it is the only hope we have left if Rockstar Games can just make this happen!

…but for now, in our plight as we wait for the possible rumoured GTA V on Xbox One announcement – check out some funny Grand Theft Auto related Youtube videos you might never have seen if not for us posting today! Thank me later…

Grand Theft Cornwall – this comes in top of the must-see list, anyone for a Mr Whippy?

What Does The Cop Say? – yes it’s that annoying song only without the Fox – Pew Pew Pew!

Grand Theft Auto V – Funny moments and ultimate fails!

Bitch It’s Grand Theft Auto – this will easily get stuck in your head

Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One, PS4 and PC are all likely to resemble each other very closely and feature more explicitly intricate detailing visually than what you see on Xbox 360 and PS3. It would be a great move to release such a massive title as this on our next-gen systems, so should anything get confirmed from Rockstar Games in the coming weeks, we’ll keep you posted.
