More Console Games Going Mobile! Hooray?

First, let’s start with the awesome news that next month Rockstar will continue publishing their older games on Android and iOS software, as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be released to the public.

I have not played any of the games (including Chinatown Wars) on my phone because, well, it’s on my phone and I would like to play games like Grand Theft Auto on my television screen and use my phone in other ways (you know, call people, text people and play scrupulous amounts of mobile video games). However, if there was a full game that I would like to have to play on my phone that I already played on a console, it would be something from Rockstar, starting with GTA:SA and ending with Red Dead (I know EXACTLY what the first comment will be).

However, there is other mobile news featuring games that you’ve played on a console!

Assassin’s Creed Black Flag is coming out with a mobile add-on to their game called Assassin’s Creed: Pirates! Now before you go to another article, it’s not like any other movile add-on. Just by looking at the screenshots, it actually looks like you’re going to be more in a RPG ship battle, which is quite different than what you get while playing Black Flag.

Instead of a real “add-on” this looks like a brand new game where all you do is look for boats to blow up, which is the only reason you’re on a boat in Black Flag anyways (if that wasn’t the case, you’d be hitting the Fast Travel button every time you are in the water. I may pick this up for $5, even though that is quite a steep price but, like I said, it’s not your normal add-on to a game. You customize your crew and earn perks via who you choose, which is pretty cool.

What games would you like to play on your mobile device that you have already played on a console version? Leave it in the comments below.

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.

Zombeer

Zombie games are becoming more and more frequent these days and they all seem to use the same premises: you (and occasionally a few others) are the remaining human in a land that has been overrun by zombies that can only be destroyed by a conveniently obtained sawed off shotgun you happen to have hanging over your shoulder. There is nothing wrong with this premises and not all games follow the mold exactly but sometimes players just need a game that takes a completely different approach to things.

Being chased by zombies? Scared for your life? Keep Drinking!

Zombeer is a new zombie fighting game where you must maintain a .2 BAC to resist turning into a zombie. While in this survival based drunken stupor, zombies will continually attack you, often using adult oriented diversion techniques, while you must defend yourself, occasionally using an updated model of a certain famous pink weapon from GTA: San Andreas. It’s definitely an adult themed game but looks like tremendous fun and a ton of laughs.

Unfortunately, it won’t be out until later this year. It’s definitely something to look forward too though!

Videos and press release below. The videos below are not kid friendly and are definitely NSFW.

Moonbite, a European studio of games and animation based in Spain, is delighted to introduce its crazy new game Zombeer, Zombies & Beers®. Developed on a multiplatform engine in partnership with Padaone Games, Zombeer ® is a first-person-survival-horror-comedy-shooter (FPSHCS) aimed at being released on PC, Mac and even such top-end platforms as the Playstation3® by the end of the year.

In a dark and near future, a mysterious plague is once again turning the world’s population into zombies. The main character named “K” awakens alone in a Mexican bar, after a night of “overindulging”. All alone, dizzy and disoriented, he realizes that this hangover doesn’t quite feel like ones he is used to. Indeed, he has been bitten by one of those nasty monsters and the virus inside him is gaining power. “K” will unintentionally discover that drinking beer is the only way to prevent it from taking over! But drink in moderation or you’ll totally lose control and be in trouble!

“Thanks to our creative team and our background in animation, we’ve designed Zombeer as a horror comedy full of action and beer, which is perfectly true to our tastes.” declared Carlos Fernandez, CEO of Moonbite. “Our team is very passionate about pop culture so the game proudly features many references to movies, comic books and games that we like. We have said that if Zombeer had a fragrance, it would be a mix between Las Vegas and a Tijuana dive bar. We can’t wait to unveil it and feed our fans with more videos and images of crazy and naughty zombies until the game releases!”

Full of action, humor and zombiness, Zombeer® will rock the world of survival-horror (mature) enthusiasts at the end of the year on PC, Mac and HD consoles!

The Hot Coffee Mod Taken to A Totally Awesome Level

Remember that mod in San Andreas? You know know the mod. C’mon. Don’t lie. EVERYONE knows “that mod”. You know what I’m talking about.

 

Even if you didn’t have that mod and went inside for some “Hot Coffee” your imagination was a wonderful thing and you sat there, listened to what was going on inside that house and wonder “What were they doing there?!” Well…there just so happens to be a free new flash game from Dr. Pippin Barr named “Hot Coffee”. FINALLY we, the people who played the console version, gets to see what happened inside that house…

 

…Ooooh yeah! Here we go! Starting it up!

 

Hot Coffee Making Action!

 

…SOMEBODY OWES ME SOME MONEY! I told you that they were probably just having some AWESOME COFFEE! Hells yeah!

 

Honestly, this is quite awesome. It takes a G-Rated approach to an Adults Only subject and takes the “Hot Coffee” mod seriously to make a cool little time-wasting game. I never knew making coffee was so damn hard!

 

As you can probably tell, I just like these weird time wasters that parody other video games. How about you? Do you like seeing smaller games come from one part of a bigger game? What other games/moments would you like to see “Flash parodied”? Would you like to come in for some hot coffee? Leave it in the comments below.
