Grand Theft Auto V PC Delayed AGAIN, Heists Coming March 10th

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 09:25 AM CST | By Ash_735
In what's becoming a running joke amongst the community, Grand Theft Auto V has been delayed yet again on PC, with a new release date now being April 14th (anyone want to take bets when the next delay comes?), as a weak apology to PC gamers Rockstar will be offering anyone who's pre-ordered the game an additional worthless $200,000 in Grand Theft Auto Online.

On the flip side, HEISTS finally have a release date, set as March 10th, hopefully they meet the target on this one as the long awaited other running joke might finally come to an end!

Classic HQ Palm Mod by Jestic

GTA: San Andreas - Modifications | @ 04:30 PM CST | By Ash_735
It has been a while since we've posted any mods on the frontpage but this one caught my eye and really does add something to the classic Grand Theft Auto games. Here we have a mod for both Vice City and San Andreas which replaces the generic palm tree model and texture with a higher poly 3D model and higher resolution texture of the original image. What makes this stand out compared to other palm tree mods is how this one has been made to stay as close as possible to the original design so it fits in well with the games art style, it's worth checking out. You can grab the mod from GTAGarage or from the Jestic's original thread over on GTAForums. Here are a couple of screenshots from the San Andreas version:

You can now pre-order the Digital Download version Grand Theft Auto V for the PC via various stores. Here is a brief round up of where you can get the game from and what benefits they include.

First up is the Rockstar Warehouse, getting the game directly from Rockstar themselves means you'll be supporting Rockstar fully and will only have to deal with one set of DRM (Rockstar's Social Club), plus if you pre-order by February 1st you will get $1,000,000 in-game ($500,000 for Grand Theft Auto V and $500,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online) and an additional $300,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online. To sweeten the deal even more you will also get a FREE Digital PC game of your choice from their store.

Second place you can find a pre-order would be Green Man Gaming, where if you pre-order by February 1st you will get $1,000,000 in-game ($500,000 for Grand Theft Auto V and $500,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online) and an additional $300,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online, and a bonus digital download of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PC. This game will be delivered as a Rockstar Games Social Club redemption code. Customers will require a free Rockstar Games Social Club account to play. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas will be provided as a Steam key.

Third place you will be able to find the game digitally is the well known Amazon.com, which includes the same pre-order bonuses as Green Man Gaming. (Please check Amazon in your own region for more details.)

Grand Theft Auto V for PC will be available for pre-load prior to release.

(Most of you will probably just buy it on Steam anyway.)
