Awesomesauce | Grand Theft Arthur (VIDEO)

If you’re looking for the perfect blend of #throwbackthursday nostalgia and modern video game pop culture, then look no further than “Grand Theft Arthur.”

Us gamers aren’t stranger to the crazy mods that PC players have created for Grand Theft Auto 5. I’ve seen some mind-blowing PC mods that make me wish I had skills to create hacks like that, but at least I can enjoy the genius of YouTube user Merfish (known for his GTA mods).

Merfish has recreated the opening for the classic kids show Arthur with in-game footage of Franklin and his squad in GTA5. The result? A hilarious reminder of how easy it is to take our innocent childhood shows and fuck them up in a heavy dosage of #awesomesauce…which you can’t help but to love every devilish moment.

Grand Theft Auto: V official gameplay video. Need I say more?

AWESOME! 

No, but seriously, Grand Theft Auto:V is a game that I’ve been waiting for ever since the end of Grand Theft Auto: IV. Once I finished that game, I was curious what on earth Rockstar Games would do next. Would we return to Los Santos? Or would simply be introduced to yet another character in Liberty City; so many questions, so little answers.

But, of course, if you’ve been following anything in the world of gaming, you are well-aware that Rockstar Games has re-envisioned Los Santos and the way gamers experience the GTA universe.

We’ve seen the trailers and have read some of the specs, but now we’ve got official gameplay footage to give us the 411 on what to expect.

Check it out below and share your thoughts. Gamers first fell in love with Los Santos in GTA:San Andreas, but this isn’t CJ’s Los Santos. Do you think is going to be a good game?

WATCH The Awesome New Trailers for Grand Theft Auto V [Michael.Franklin.Trevor]

I’ve got a huge list of games I can’t wait to get my hands on, but as of late I’ve been going in on GTA:San Andreas. I haven’t had the chance to play my PS3 since I’ve been on the move (life of a nomad right now,) so whenever I have the chance I play San Andreas using my PS3 controller and my Macbook Pro. It’s one of the best games in the franchise, but after watching the new trailers for Grand Theft Auto V, I think this new title might be the best one to date.

In the new trailers, Rockstar gives us a glimpse at the three different worlds of the characters Michael, Franklin, and Trevor. Each one has their own vibe that makes each character seem like they come from their own game, but there is a sense of cohesion in the story line that will make switching characters and missions a blast!

Enjoy the 80s music of Michael’s trailer, get gangsta with Franklin’s hustle, and go redneck with the country bumpkin antics of Trevor.

GTA: V WILL BE OFFICIALLY RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 17, 2013! 

Awesomesauce | GTA: Rise – Live Action Short Film

GTARiseVideo_Full

Usually most movies based off games end up being horrible, but if Mass Effect 3 and Gears of War could be movies, they would be pretty good. There is already talks of a ME3 movie in the works, but could you imagine what it would be like if an open-world game like Grand Theft Auto became a film?

Well, director Gevorg Karensky decided to give us a taste of what a live-action Grand Theft Auto style film could look like. Of course, you’d need fast cars, a criminal in a rugged leather jacket, and some epic party scene, followed by a shoot-out or chase scene. Yeah, that sounds like a scene from a GTA game. Well, in the Karensky directed short “GTA:Rise” you’ve got all of the ingredients of a pretty good GTA-style action scene.

If this was a feature length film, would you watch it? Heck, I would. What can I say? I like chase scene, flashy cars, leather jackets, and all things reminiscent of GTA.

Yeah, It’s Here | GTA V Trailer # 2

Grand Theft Auto has always been one of those franchises from Rockstar Games you either love or hate. Some folks (which I’ve met) dislike the open world atmosphere and the misions, while others (like myself) love it! I been a huge GTA fan from day one, so when I heard about GTA V a few months ago, I was stoked!

Well, now I’m even more stoked. The second trailer for GTA V is officially here. Do I like it? Yes, I really really do.

Max Payne 3 | The Art of Bullet Time

As of late, I’ve been playing MW3 and Mass Effect 3 multiplayer a lot. There wasn’t’ really a lot of games that came out this month that have caught my interest, but perhaps that’s because the only game I’ve been following is Max Payne 3.

The game doesn’t come out until next month, but it’s already caught my attention mainly because 1.) amazing graphics 2.) great storyline and 3.) bullet time. This isn’t the first time a game has relied heavily on bullet time (think back to the riveting experience of John Woo’s Strangehold.) That game was pretty cool mainly because of the tactic of slowing time down and letting the player seemingly direct which way the bullets go, especially when surrounded by numerous enemies.

I liked the usage of bullet time, and I’m glad that it’s going to be used in Rockstar Games Max Payne 3. But oh, don’t think bullet time will only be used in the story mode. Yeah, it’s also incorporated into the online multiplayer. Pretty cool, right?
