GTA-Online

Take in the view from any of the five new apartments in The High Life Update.
Coming next week on Tuesday May 13th, it’s time to expand your foothold in Los Santos with The High Life Update for Grand Theft Auto Online, which features new high-end apartments, multi-property ownership, four new vehicles, the powerful Bullpup Rifle and more. This automatic update to GTA Online adds five new options to the Los Santos real estate market at prime locations like Eclipse Towers, Richards Majestic and others, all featuring the latest new interior design. With multi-property ownership, you’ll also now be able to own two distinct properties simultaneously.

Customized Zentorno, Massacro, and Huntley S hit the streets.

For those looking to take advantage of the expanded garage space that comes with owning an extra property, there’s a trio of exquisite new cars plus a hot new motorcycle to add to your collection. The Enus Huntley S (SUV), Dewbauchee Massacro (Sports), Pegassi Zentorno (Super) and Dinka Thrust (Motorcycle) will all be available to purchase in GTA Online from Legendary Motorsport – and accessible from any garage property in Story Mode. The High Life Update also adds ‘Non Contact’ to the bevy of available Race options, which will allow you to play standard Races with collisions disabled between player’s vehicles (other players appear as semi-transparent and you’ll still be able to collide with non-player traffic, structures and other scenery).

Outfit the new Bullpup Rifle with a scope, suppressor, tints and more.

You can also protect your investments with Ammu-Nation’s latest arrival, the powerful Bullpup Rifle. And the new Mental State player stat shows you just how passive or psychotically unhinged fellow players in your session really are – so you’ll know if you need to have it at the ready when they approach. The High Life Update also includes new wardrobe options, vehicle horns and player toasts/celebrations as well as 15 new Jobs – including 5 new Contact Missions.

GTA V for Xbox One Rumors Again

gta v xbox one

An Xbox One release of Grand Theft Auto V has already been rumoured for some time already having been reported on thisisxbox early February. What was an originally outed for Xbox One by a Czech Republic retailer has now evolved into Romania, as their retailer’s are also taking pre-orders for the hotly tipped title.

A well known Romanian retailer called Altex are also accepting pre-orders for the game on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 with an estimated June 15th 2014 release date. As we’ve said before – 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.

More information may come to light at E3 2014 this June!

Today Xbox support have confirmed that they are looking into reports that some Xbox users are experiencing issues using their Cloud saves with GTA Online, as seen on the Xbox LIVE Service Status Page

Rockstar Games Spill The Beans On GTA Online

1380133864-gta-online

Rockstar Games have released more information about GTA Online ahead of the launch on October 1st 2013.  First, they give some details of the roll out of GTA Online, and how they hope gaming communities will be involved in making the game everything it can be. All is explained in more depth below.

Grand Theft Auto Online is going to be something brand new: a fully realized and living world for multiple players that will continue to grow and take shape over time. The ultimate shape of GTA Online will be determined as much by you, the player – what you like and don’t like, what you play and what you want will determine how the game develops and what it turns into. There is a planned constant stream of new content, tweaks and updates in the weeks and months ahead. Initial focus will be on the tuning experience as it goes from internal testing to the reality of being played by tons of people in the real world so that all the usual teething problems for an online game are overcome. The opportunity to create your own content will follow in due course.

The Launch of Grand Theft Auto Online

From launch, up to 16 players can enter the world together to partake in everything from:

Open-World Crime and Chaos – Go on your own or round up your friends to explore the open world together – catch a movie, go mountain biking, hit the shooting range and much more. Want to test the law? Knock over a convenience store, take down a gang or rob an armored truck for easy cash and Reputation.

Jobs – Los Santos and Blaine County are ripe with opportunity for the ambitious and criminal minded. Take on Missions and an array of other Jobs as a lone wolf, team up with your Crew or join fellow mercenaries and degenerates to pull off a wide range of robberies and illicit activities together.

Races – Everything from classic street competition and off-road tracks to boat racing on the open ocean, or take to the skies in aerial events. Jump into the madness of a GTA Race, or try out a brand new race type, Rally, where driver and co-pilot work together to navigate treacherous courses at high speeds.

Sports – Join your friends / any random stranger for a game of tennis, a round of golf or go base jumping and more, all for cash and Reputation.

Customization – Create your character using the Character Creator – then earn some cash and spend it getting dressed for success. You can also collect and customize cars for your garage and personalize your full weapons cache.

Reputation and Cash Flow – Reputation is earned from all your online exploits in everything you do in GTA Online – and will help you rank up, providing access to new features, weapons and criminal contacts. Spend cash you’ve gained on cars, clothes, guns, properties and much more. You can either quickly accumulate cash through profitable activities like knocking over armored cars, winning street races, doing stick-ups or a host of other cash-making endeavors – or if you’re the completely instant gratification type, you can choose to buy denominations of GTA$. You will have the option to purchase GTA$ through the in-game Store. The game and its economy have been designed and balanced for the vast majority of players who will not buy extra cash. There is no in-game paywall and nothing that should disrupt the balance of the game. You don’t have to spend real money to attain the cars, guns, clothes, flash and style of a high-roller in Los Santos, but can if you wish to get them a little quicker. The economy is balanced differently from the single player economy, and cash earned in one cannot be taken over to the other. Most players will earn cash much faster Online than in Story Mode.

Growing Pains – There will be the typical growing pains for an online game, including but not limited to crashes, glitches, crazy bugs, gameplay modes and mechanics that need re-balancing and other surprises! Even in GTAV Story Mode, some of you may have seen a few odd and even amusing little glitches out there last week. This sort of thing is inevitable in a massive open-world game and there’ll surely be lots more unexpected oddities like this in the Online world next week – rest assured we’ll be monitoring and actively doing all we can to smooth such things out as they happen, but we need your help to find them, as well as your feedback to help fine tune all of the game’s systems so everything is perfectly balanced.

Currently Planned GTA Online Content Updates

The Content Creator – The Content Creator will launch with tools to tailor and publish your own Deathmatches & Races.

The Beach Bum Pack – Featuring 4 new amazing beach fun vehicles, over 300 new items of incredible down tempo leisure wear and 2 new but not remotely relaxing weapons.

Capture the Flag – GTA Online’s take on the classic CTF mode including the ability to make your own using The Content Creator.

Heists – This update will introduce full-on cooperative Heist missions that will require careful planning, teamwork and sharp execution – along with the Heist Planning Board for your apartment.

Just to clarify, all of these updates will be free. Please stay tuned for further info and updates in the coming weeks after launch on October 1st.

Shag a Gamer Goes After GTA V Product Placement

logo-shag-a-gamer

Roughly this time last year we reported on the launch of Shag a Gamer, the online dating website encouraging others to just fuck each other silly probably with or without the control pad. Now, randy gamers who want to indulge their desires without taking their hands off their joysticks could have their prayers answered after the creators want to strike a six-figure deal with Rockstar Games for a placement in GTA V!

With the fifth edition of the multi-million dollar GTA franchise about to hit the shelves, www.shagagamer.com is hoping to begin talks that will see Rockstar introduce an in-game version of their saucy site so horny GTA characters can get as much action as their human members.

Founder of Shag Gamer Tom Thurlow quotes: “We could see characters using an in-game version of the Shag a Gamer site to read profiles and even hook up with any horny ‘members’ that take their fancy…

“Shag a Gamer could be integrated into the plotline of GTA V too. We’ve been considering how it could be used as part of a blackmail storyline, where the main character poses as a female online, in order to trick a married drug boss into a raunchy liaison. ”

Grand Theft Auto V is due for launch on September 17th and is reputed to be Rockstar’s biggest and most ambitious game yet, focusing on three main protagonists; Trevor, Michael and Franklin, whose stories interconnect as they complete missions together.

Shag a Gamer is the flagship product offered by UK sister site Date a Gamer and offers geeks that are gagging for it, the chance to meet like-minded people so they can hang out, hook up and much more. So far, Shag a Gamer has attracted more than 200, 000 users worldwide.

Is this just the biggest load of shit you’ve read ever!!!
