What is there to say about Grand Theft Auto 5, by Rockstar Games, which has not been said already? Its release was a record-breaking one, making so much money so extremely quickly that the comparison to the Avengers movie seems particularly apt, making well over $1 billion which is an insane figure no matter which way you slice it. According to Wikipedia the game’s sales figures are only topped by the truly ridiculous giants of games like Minecraft and Tetris. It’s a game which received wide-spread acclaim and approval, pretty much all of it entirely deserving. As such, writing a review for it feels more than a little tricky considering that I’m just going to be adding more praise on top of an already too-big mountain of praise. It feels like the exact opposite situation of the “pissing-into-a-sea-of-piss” metaphor. Continue reading
This is a post which usually comes around the first week of January, however I personally decided to postpone it for a little longer because there was one game which I had yet to play but knew I would be playing relatively soon. It took a bit longer than expected to finally get around to playing said game, but it was worth it because it does factor rather massively into the running of this year’s MMGaming Game Awards. As always, people are now raising eyes and faces to the sky, hearts in mouths and stomachs where the heart used to be, ready to hear what are surely the most prestigious and most awaited awards every year. Despite the late arrival of the MMGaming Game Awards, everyone from the smallest to the biggest of devs knows that it is big and important and they were all willing to wait as long as necessary with the hopes of winning one of the awards. Anyway, it is now time to get down to business and (defeat the hun) give our opinions on some of the best and brightest of the good year 2013. Let’s get to it!
I am going to go ahead and assume you guys have already heard about this, and probably have seen it as well. But hey, we wouldn’t be a gaming website if we didn’t make a post about the brand new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V.
Which looks pretty similar to the last GTA anyway… Ah well, Rockstar are sticking with what they do best here. Could be a laugh, and I’m willing to bet all the fans are already drooling! Anyway, link to the trailer after the jump! Continue reading
Ah well, I suppose it was almost bound to happen. If people still buy them, then companies still make them. The above photo is pretty much all that is known right now (as far as I understand) and was taken directly from here.
So a new Grand Theft Auto you say? Well I wouldn’t mind one thanks. But forgive me if I don’t go into overdrive excited mode. GTA has entertained and diverted me in the past, but it’s never been something where I’ve thought “I cannot live without that game!”.
