This week, Rockstar Games released a big Grand Theft Auto Online update focused on stealing cars. Committing acts of grand theft auto, if you will. This new expansion is titled “Import/Export.” It adds new ways to make money and some wacky vehicles to spend that money on. The problem is that, unless you already have a…
I was sitting in a police car in a video game. Next to me was a Grand Theft Auto Online fan who didn’t want to play the game the way most people do. Actually, he was doing something the game was never really built for.
I’m finally into Grand Theft Auto Online. It took me a while. The game launched in late 2013, though I’m not sure I could have been excited for it sooner. What’d it take? Two nights of chaos and a revelation about what Rockstar’s multiplayer game actually is.
Some of the multiplayer additions to Grand Theft Auto Online may not interest devotees of the single-player part of Rockstar’s ever-evolving rendition of California crime. The stunt races introduced to the game throughout the past month should.
If you’ve ever wanted to virtually track a racing truck, Forza 6 is now giving you the opportunity. As part of the Turn 10 Select Car Pack you’ll have access to the 1080-horsepower 2015 Mercedes-Benz #24 Tankpool24 Racing Truck.
This isn’t an actual controller, it’s just a marketing stunt by Ford and Microsoft. But, uh, Ford....I would maybe buy this.
A little more than 10 years ago, not long after I quit my job to become a freelance writer, a colleague warned me that sometimes the work could be grueling and unrewarding. “I want to talk to you when you’re writing a story only for money,” he said. It took a decade, but I finally found that assignment: reviewing Mad…
If you’re a fan of British Touring Car Championship driver and Jalopnik contributor Robb Holland (I am too, it’s why I hired him!) then we have GREAT NEWS. Robb has reached a level of digital glory few humans ever experience: he’s going to be in a video game!
Xbox boss Phil Spencer just announced that the Xbox One is getting backwards compatibility with 360 games later this year, which is pretty damn cool.
One week in early February, three top employees from the independent game studio Darkside Games flew to Redmond, Washington for a secret meeting with Microsoft.
With Forza 5's Drivatar tech and player-controlled clubs with up to 1000 members, along with dedicated servers for smooth multiplayer connectivity, Forza Horizon 2 is arriving to Xbox One and Xbox 360 on September 30.
At this point, I'm convinced that Project CARS isn't actually a racing game. It's a playable art installation that lets you take pretty pictures of cars. And things other than cars.
The following words appear at the end of an incredible new video filled with four minutes of amazing Grand Theft Auto V bike, car and plane: "No cheats or mods were used to perform the stunts". Wow.
Go to freeplay and Select Indy Oval setup. Setup a 20 lap race, have there be 15 drivatars and put them on max difficultly, Turn off all assists because you won't need them. The Lotus is so fast on this course you won't even really need to do work. This method is kind of boring, but very calming. I'm probably going to…
Everyone in this year's Need For Speed—racers and cops both—is an asshole. Neither side is likable. Thank God. It's incredibly freeing to be a total, speed-obsessed jerk, especially when it's accompanied by amazing visuals and intense velocity. Way to welcome us to next-gen, Need For Speed Rivals.
Two weeks back, I picked up a Japanese copy of Grand Theft Auto V and began leisurely working my way through the game. After a few hours of playing it, I started to notice that some things were curiously missing in the sex and violence department.
For one moment, the gap between playing a game on PC and on console seemed razor-thin. I played Need for Speed Rivals on both PC and PS4 and the two versions of EA’s upcoming racing game were virtually indistinguishable. What I saw was impressive no matter what machine it was running on.
Like many of the millions of Americans who got Grand Theft Auto V on or soon after its Sept. 17 release, I spent much of that first weekend in Los Santos, the game's fictional mega-metropolis. Having bought, binged on, and beaten the game, I can mouth my own oohs and ahs.
The surprisingly-grand Grand Theft Auto Online, which launches on October 1, will let you pick your parents as you sculpt the character you play. Would you like to be playing as the son of GTA IV's protagonist? You can.
