Grand Theft Auto V Gameplay Trailer: It’s Like I’m IN Los Santos!

Color me impressed.  Just don’t color me badd.

This game is the reason I won’t be rushing out to get a PS4 on launch day, not Amazon or Gamestop selling out of their pre-orders.

All Right, Who’s Ready To $pend An Untold Amount of Money on the GTA V Collector’s Edition? (Besides Me)

Video game companies must think we’re all suckers. Truth be told, they are spot-on with that assessment. They keep cranking out these massive special editions full of geegaws and whatnots, and we, the video game playing public, keep snapping them up. To what end? I’ve never used the GTA IV lockbox I got with that particular special edition, yet I’ve dragged it to four different apartments (NYC: We Move A Lot). I have so many art books I use them as coasters when all the friends I’ve abandoned to play video games come over to drink heavily.  Now it’s just de facto for any AAA-title to come out with the most overstuffed special edition (usually in tiers, as well, which leaves me in tears haha j/k) to try and pawn off on their particular niche.  The Call of Duty franchise is probably the worst offender. But don’t think I’ve forgotten about you, Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2 or Uncharted 3.

Still though….Atomic Blimp. That’s mighty tempting.blimp

Keep your eyes peeled (or your browsers pointed here) for further announcements from Rockstar on the whens and (more importantly) the how muchs of pre-ordering your very own copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

DI: Riptide

Having missed out on Dead Island the first time around, I am definitely excited for Dead Island: Riptide a.k.a  Fallout with zombies. Sounds just about perfect; too bad the awesome concept came with a heaping pile of bugs and issues. By the time all of the issues were solved and the game was actually playable, I was consumed (ed. note: ha ha) by a number of other games .  Come April, DI: Riptide and GTA V will most certainly be battling it to see to whom my PS3 gives the most lovn’.  As an avid opponent of most Collectors Editions, the  DI: Riptide Rigor Mortis Edition does not actually seem all that bad.  The fact that it was voted by the fans means we can weed out the usual garbage in most Collectors Editions. (see Borderlands 2) Even better, it’s actually reasonably priced at $79.99, which is a nice change from the usual $100 or so that most CE’s run. Will I get it? Probably no, as I still live with parents and there’s enough tchotchkes around the house.  I don’t think a zombie hand bottle opener will fit in with the decor of the Colonial Williamsburg look around my house.  But will I get the game? Most certainly.

Dancing Around the Issue: More GTA V Screens

Outside of the trailer (below) from about nine months ago, the only info regarding Grand Theft Auto V has been the odd still here or there. This is the second batch of three released this week, this time under the heading, “Leisure”. Hopefully there’ll be another set on Friday, entitled “Chaos”.

Grand Theft Auto 5 – Two New Screenshots

Could you image if Rockstar was able to ship two of their flagship titles this year?

GTA V will take precedent over just about every other release this year, with possibly the exception of Borderlands 2. It will DEFINITELY take precedent over my job. And most likely the gym. And sleep.

Damn.
