Though Rockstar continues to iron out the kinks with GTA Online by sending out fixes and giving players access to the Stimulus Package, the developers are still keen on releasing actual content updates to the game. For the next title update releasing next week, the 1.06 patch, Rockstar plans on giving players a lot more than just fixes to existing glitches and quirks with the game. Dress light, GTA Online vets -- we're going to the beach.

In the Beach Bum content pack, players will find new jobs, weapons, and vehicles as they pit their characters in a variety of challenges around the sunny coasts of Los Santos. Many of the challenges include new maps for team deathmatch, races, parachuting, and survival. In addition to this, the update also comes with new clothing and character customization options to match up with the beach-themed jobs.

It's good to see some new content coming to GTA Online. I know a lot of people who have exhausted much of what the base game had to offer, and while this isn't a mega content pack, it will certainly go a long way to get players excited about playing again.

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
