The GTA V update turned my character black

Okay, I admit: sometimes I do wish I were black. However, that desire never translated into the virtual gaming space because, I don't know, I guess I felt it didn't really represent me? Well, thanks to the recent Grand Theft ...

Grand Theft Auto V graphics are worse in recent update

Looks like the most recent update of Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One and PS4 has included some graphical downgrades as seen in the video above. A post on reddit seems to indicate Rockstar didn't plan for this and its su...

Weekend Deals: Up to 22% off on GTA V & Battlefield Hardline
by Dealzon

Totally, definitely, and for realz this time -- Grand Theft Auto V will finally grace PC gamers on April 14. Given the frequent delays and push back (now coming up two years after the game was released on the 360 and PS3) -- it's no wonder hype has died down a bit for the game.

For those with strong resolve to play the damn game in 4K glory details, GMG has included GTA V along with next week's Battlefield: Hardline in its VIP sale. Discount is for 22% and 17% off, respectively.

Cities: Skylines continues to sell well on all digital retailers we track (surprise, well-reviewed and well-developed game makes money?). The city builder game is also available in the same GMG VIP section.

Last on the worthwhile checkout list includes two franchise pack deals, with everything Deus Ex and Legacy of Kain on sale for only $6.43 and $3.90. If you don't see any interesting deals below, circle back in a day or two as we usually revisit sales through the weekend.

Holy hindsight! Five series that should have been on Wii photo
Holy hindsight! Five series that should have been on Wii
by Tony Ponce

By the end of 2014, Xbox 360 had slid past Wii to become the best-selling seventh generation console in the US. While a fantastic achievement for Microsoft, this event also punctuates the drastic shift in Nintendo's market dominance. Where once Wii was on track to become the best-selling dedicated gaming console of all time, it's now all but forgotten.

There are various reasons why history played out the way it did, but at the end of the day, it's all about the games, and Wii's library had some pretty glaring holes. To be fair, there were a lot of fantastic games on Wii -- Nintendo itself published some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful titles in company history, while several third parties were able to ride the wave to good fortune.

Sadly, the industry at large didn't support Wii in a manner befitting of a market leader, resulting in a legacy of wasted potential. Had these publishers done a better job in leveraging their biggest brands on the little white box, the current gaming landscape could have been much different.

GTA Online finally gets its long delayed Heist update today for all platforms

At long last, heists are coming to GTA Online. All you have to do is log on any of the four platforms, start the game up, and download the update -- it's weighing in at roughly 4.5GB on current-gen systems, and 1.5GB on...

New radio station coming to GTA V

Rockstar remains busy improving and tweaking Grand Theft Auto V. With the impending arrival of heists, they also have plans to add another radio station -- except only on PC at first. I guess us console peasants are going to ...

One last look at GTA Online heists ahead of next week's launch photo
One last look at GTA Online heists ahead of next week's launch

For as long of a wait as it's been, I'm still enthusiastic about heists in Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rockstar previously said that coming up with missions in which every player in the crew feels important at all times "turned out to be a lot more difficult than we originally thought [and] took several passes from scratch." Console players will find out if the studio succeeded come Tuesday.

Until then, here's a bunch of new screenshots, some of which show the heist planning stage.

Chop looks nice and furry in GTA V for PC

April 14, 2015. Barring any extra delays, that's when Grand Theft Auto V will release for PC. Rockstar released 15 screenshots today that aren't making our wait any easier. Good job, people responsible for capturing these scenes -- you correctly assumed I'd want to see how Chop the rottweiler looks in the PC version. My mind goes straight to the animals, always.

Grand Theft Auto V won't make it to PC until April 14

It's the news we've been waiting to hear for months: four-player online heist missions will debut in Grand Theft Auto V on March 10, and the game's PC version will arrive April 14. There. Finally. "Our apologies to PC gamers...

Failed GTA attack sums up my experience piloting jets in videogames

You might think that a helicopter peacefully drifting along in Grand Theft Auto Online would be an easy target for a fighter jet, but some of us aren't so skilled at flying these things. Poor MrSmileyHat69. I know your pain. [Via reddit]

Weekend Deals: GTA V, Majora's Mask, Resident Evil, Oh My photo
Weekend Deals: GTA V, Majora's Mask, Resident Evil, Oh My

Next month's The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, March's Grand Theft Auto V for the PC, and next Tuesday's Resident Evil HD Remaster all receive some cash discount this weekend. There's a common theme between these three games - take a wild guess.

If re-releases with prettier graphics aren't your thing, there are also deals on other titles such as Shin Megami Tensei IV for $16, or the Saints Row Ultimate Franchise Pack for $11.

Further down the list, you'll find some hardware deals, including PS4 and Wii U consoles at decent discounts ($30 and $20, respectively). They're nothing wild, but are still good deals when you factor in the additional bonuses.

Game deals brought to you by Dealzon. FYI: Sales from certain retailers help support Destructoid.

Grand Theft Auto V PC pushed to March, system specs revealed
by Jordan Devore

I should have known something was up, but here it is: Grand Theft Auto V won't be available on PC this month as previously announced. Rockstar has delayed the game to March 24, 2015.

The good news, at least for console owners, is that online heists are almost here at long last. That's the plan, anyway. You'll be able to find and play those through GTA Online "in the coming weeks ahead of the PC launch." Heists will be playable on PC at launch on March 24.

Rockstar also sent out new screenshots and system requirements, viewable below.
