Grand Theft Auto V viral video introduces new character


2:30 PM on 04.22.2013



Rockstar posted a video (which doubles as a downloadable screensaver) that lists The Epsilon Program's -- the Scientology parody first introduced in San Andreas' radio ads -- values. Hidden behind the text are scenic day-night cycles of Grand Theft Auto V locations along with a man (possibly the religion's founder?) that looks more dressed for an Assassin's Creed than a GTA game.

Some people are reading into the significance of the word "KIFFLOM" which flashes across the screen (also the title of Rockstar's post). Others are wondering if this character will be prominently featured in the story. Some even think the high detailed character model confirms next-gen release. I, however, think this video confirms only one thing: Grand Theft Auto is back to its dumb, goofy self and thank goodness for that!

This animation captures GTA Online perfectly

You don't need to have played GTA Online to enjoy this animation by Jameserton, but it'll hit much closer to home if you have done so. It's funny, and I say that as someone who goes into these game parodies with a sometimes unreasonable amount of skepticism. That dramatic music during the bomb sequence? The best.more

Mod completely sinks Los Santos into the ocean in GTA V

Oh this is just fantastic. A modder by the name of Bushigan has submerged Los Santos into the ocean. The mod was accomplished through a modded PlayStation 3, and as you can see life sort of goes on while Grand Theft Auto V's main city is ravaged by waves. You can make this happen yourself, so long as you have a modded PS3 that is. (Via Kotaku)more

Boy, The Hong Kong Massacre sure looks like Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason. I guess it can't exactly be Hotli...more
