Weird video game things from around the Internet….net…net!

We are back with the second installment of Things from around the internet(man that needs a better name) in which I point out some weird or awesome video game things I stumbled across while surfing the world wide web!

First off, what if Pulp Fiction were an 8 bit video game? Wonder no more! Watch out for Zed and the gimp….. be sure to check out CineFix’s other movies turned 8 bit game.

Next up the world moves closer to being like the movie Idioracy  and the planet becoming dumber every day. Apparently under the radar Gatorade had a game that has since been removed in which you avoid water because Brawndo Gatorade is better…. Drink plenty of water kids. Water is important.

gatorade

And last but not least. Grand Theft Auto for kids. Nacho Punch cleaned up the language and made the game ….. friendly….

if I had a gaggle of kids I’d completely let them play this game. All its missing is a gangster monkey named Uggs or Timberlands or Nike or something…..

Grand Theft Auto Online: An Online Sandbox World to commit GTA Together.

NOTE: This is the first post brought to us by Matt Sorg, new writer for Insert Coin to Begin.

It seems Rockstar isn’t only expanding heavily on the Single Player portion of their new GTA by adding 3 characters to switch from, but also taking a huge leap for their online portion of the game as well.

 

Announced yesterday over on Gamespot, Grand Theft Auto V’s online portion will be called Grand Theft Auto Online. By the looks of the trailer, GTAO is looking to be very ambitions.

In GTAV you will have a character wheel to switch between the three main protagonist, but there will be a fourth character to choose from. This fourth character will be your very own custom Multiplayer character and will give you access to the GTA Online portion of the game. When you arrive in Los Santos with your character, you will be open to do many activities, from doing jobs for npc’s to make some cash, spending that cash to customize your character, buy a home or garage and buying and upgrading vehicles and weapons, to partaking in many different activities such as golfing, skydiving, and robbing a bank with some buddies. You can pretty much do whatever you want, just like a normal GTA game. But it adds the ability to travel the world inhabited with up to 15 friends or enemies controlled by other players. You can join together and complete missions, have a war between two teams in the streets, or wander the city solo, sometimes spectating the havoc other’s are creating thou the TV or looking down at the streets from an apartment as cops chase a group of friends that just robbed a bank.

Not only can you free roam like a normal GTA game, you can also join in classic game modes such as Deathmatch or some other objective based game-types like Cops n’ Crooks similar from GTAIV’s Multiplayer. Even more interesting, you can customize and make your own races, setup a Deathmatch arena or put together your own missions, similar to the map editing in games like the Halo series.

Another part that seems interesting to me is that there will constantly be new content being added for you to discover, even hinting at raising the boundaries of Los Santos and allowing you to travel further, possible to allow travel to San Fierro or Las Venturas, hopefully even hopping on plan to fly to Vice City or Liberty City(a man can dream).

This actually reminds me of when GTA: San Andreas came out. Some modders released a multiplayer mod for the game to allow you to join a server and play with other people(amazingly, it’s still being updated). It was interesting but San Andreas always felt quite empty with the only life being the other players. In GTA IV they added a free roam mode which I think is very similar to the mod, except not quite as empty with pedestrians wandering the world like normal. There no real objective tho but some people tend to make up their own objectives, like the fine Lets Players over at Rooster Teeth here.

 

It’s important to note that GTA Online will not be available at the Sept. 17th launch of GTAV. They are currently planning on releasing Online on Oct. 1st with some other features such as the mission creator being released sometime later.

Are you excited to play a true GTA open world multiplayer experience with GTA Online? Have any stories about previous GTA Multiplayer experience? Let us know in the comments.

Game 33: GTA

Before we get into today’s game, starting next week i’ll be hiding posts periodically on the blog! That’s right, HIDING blog posts.

These shall be called Bonus Levels. These are games that i’ve played and enjoyed, or games that are being suggested to me through out the journey. Yes, i know it makes the journey longer. As a gamer, i dont care.

Game 33: Grand Theft Auto

*Get to the phone in West Park*

*What the Hell took you so long! Johnny NoNose needs a driver, go get the car in the south port.*

This series came from extremely humble beginnings.  Low graphics, simplistic game play. That would later change but in October of 97 a groundbreaking corruptive game that would later be blamed for video games being bad or influential.

Simplistic graphics

Clear cut missions.

Still, hours of entertainment.

One of the few series that is able to continue in the same location or set of locations such as this. Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas. Yeah, they have been used since the beginning.

This game also took the freedom aspect of a game and changed the genre.  The free roaming ability allows you to explore a bit but some areas were still locked until later in the game as per usual but still reachable after a while.

Chachi Says: IM not a huge fan of this game in the series. i like 2- the rest. They are great games. This game while i respect it for what it is i still think that it just leaves something to be desired.
