I hope to execute more sick hacks in the future and bring you more such dispatches.  END TRANSMISSION.   read

When the AI plays possum

Rag doll physics remain the best thing about Grand Theft Auto, even in fake-death. There have been a lot of GTAV gifs in my life of late and it's making me really want to boot up some GTA Online -- on PS3, of course.   read
