Grand Theft Auto is usually too chaotic for me to enjoy, but am I a horrible person if I get some catharsis from watching Anna and Elsa wreak destruction across Liberty City in this wicked mod? This is what happens when we as a society truly let go, guys: chaos reigns. Repression is a social construct that saves lives.
Whether you're a fan of the series or not, Rockstar Games' second trailer for Grand Theft Auto Vlooks really slick. It's well composed, and shows that, if nothing else, the game is going to look beautiful. If you're interested, one industrious GTA fan has removed some of the trailer's smooth veneer by recreating it in Grand Theft Auto IV.
There's always buzz about when the next PlayStation or Xbox is going to come out, or who's going to win the next presidential election, but have you ever thought about how many more PlayStations, Xboxes or presidential elections you're going to see before you bite the dust? Well, whether or not you have, this original Geekosystem infographic will tell you. By doing a little research, a couple of maths and ignoring a massive number of potential variables like premature death, bankruptcy, game-changing inventions, and the end of the world, I came up with 12 things that you will see before you die. Get ready to get pumped for the PlayStation 11.
I recently wrote a little essay about what video game trailers should aspire to. Admittedly, The Sims 3 is not the sort of game I was talking about and so it couldn't really conform to my demands even if it wanted to. But still, couldn't it have done, you know, anything but this?
Not to spoil the whole trailer for you, but basically it's just a bunch of annoying brats ranting about all the crazy shit they did in the game. A nun recounts stealing cars and stereos, a Sarah Silverman wannabe talks about all the bling she buys with all her cash. An incredibly creepy British man about whom I will have nightmares tonight talks about burning down his sister's house, insults her in the most crass way possible, then later expresses a desire to be electrocuted. You just have to watch.
