Happy Birthday San Andreas!

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 04:36 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
Four years ago today, October 26, 2004, the gaming community finally settled their anticipation and had gotten their hands onto one of the biggest games of all time: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Check out some of San Andreas' trailers to honor its release:
Like with GTA III & GTA2 the other day, honor its release by squeezing in a few hours of gameplay today! (although I'm a bit late posting this, I apologize)

Happy Birthday Vice City!

GTA: Vice City - General News | @ 09:00 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
The game that revived the 80's celebrated its 6th birthday today-- its first release in North America on October 27, 2002. Below you can check out the game's trailers and a link to the official Vice City website to spark some memories of the epic sequel. Although the day is nearly over (EST), I hope if you had not remembered you'll take some time to cruise around on a PCJ-600 or maybe nab a Hunter from the Fort Baxter Air Base to celebrate Vice City's release.
In other news... the PS3 version of GTA IV received the v1.3 update today to support the trophy system, similar to Xbox 360's achievement system. As the in-game message displays on a load of a previously saved game, the trophies will not be retroactive, in other words, you have to start a new game to earn trophies, but hey, it shouldn't be something to complain about! ;)

Amazon and GameStop push back GTAIV's PC release

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 09:51 PM MDT | By zombienm
According to major retailers Amazon and GameStop, the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV could be delayed to December 2nd, a whole two weeks later than the originally scheduled release on November 18th. The reason for this change is unknown, and whether or not it is true is still questionable.

Rockstar Games has made no official announcement regarding a delay, so this could simply be an error. Amazon UK still lists the game as releasing on it's originally scheduled European release date of the 21st of November.

Again, this is not official. We will keep you updated once more information becomes available.

Update: While it doesn't say much on the issue, a new hands-on article from IGN does say the game is being released on December 2nd. While it's still not an official Rockstar announcement, this could mean it's more than just an error. Catch the article here.

GTA IV PC to boast in-game video editor

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 05:00 PM MDT | By rappo

Scenes like this can be made with the GTA IV PC in-game video editor
GameSpot recently published a preview of GTA IV PC that gives us a look at some brand new features. First, GameSpot reports that the game will be highly optimizable to fit your PC's specifications - not only can you change the resolution and lighting, but you'll also have the ability to increase or decrease vehicular traffic rates.

According to GameSpot, the most impressive addition to the PC version, however, is the in-game video editor. The game automatically saves between 30 seconds and three minutes of previous game data (similar to the replay function of past GTA games), which can be saved for later editing by pressing F2.

You can then access the editor, which exits your current game, through Niko's cell phone. From there, the editor contains many features to create the perfect video:
The most important selection initially is the camera: You have the option of the default game view, which is exactly the view you saw as you played through the segment, the view from any of various nearby targets, several fixed angles--to Niko's right, say, or head-on--as well as a free camera. The free camera has some limitations, though. If you're within about 10 metres of Niko then it really is free, with views possible from any angle from any position inside the area. If you go out of that 10m-or-so circle, you're limited to being pointed at Niko, but you can pan and zoom out quite some distance nonetheless.

Other controls include muting voices, adding soundtrack songs or sound effects on top of the video, and pulling together multiple clips.

GameSpot has some more interesting anecdotes about the videos they created during their 30-minute game demo, so be sure to read the full article.
