GTA Censorship Is A Wake Up Call To Video Games Industry

GTA V RealGamerNewz

Everyday there is a new issue in the community, whether it be the in the gaming community, Youtube community, or even national community issues, they all tend to have a common set, Censorship. We all hate being censored, it’s true, but yet there is always someone or something that will shut out your censorship freedom. It’s been going on for awhile but gamers and video game developers everywhere are just now starting to take notice, why? Well if you read my resent post,  Targets in Australia removed GTA 5 from their shelves. But why? Who would vote to do this?

Well ironically it is the sites that publishers have been supporting, and the funny part is these sites are not supporting the games like they should be, in fact some of the sites like Gawker, Vox Media, and UBM TechWeb are some of the few in question, because they too in fact are pushing for stores to remove certain games from store shelves. And while Publishers do nothing they lose millions to these sites who push to remove the consumer ability to purchase these games in stores, “YOUR right” may I add to retain the ability to purchase these games. WAKE UP, because before you know it the rights we fought for will be gone in a heartbeat and video games won’t be as censorship free as they are now.

3 Women Start Petition for Targets in Australia to Remove GTA:5 From Their Shelves

grand-theft-auto-v-15691-1680x1050

Yes the title is correct as it is. 3 women in Australia have started a petition to remove GTA: 5 from Target’s shelves. The reason being {Quote} “It’s a game that encourages players to murder women for entertainment. The incentive is to commit sexual violence against women, then abuse or kill them to proceed or get ‘health’ points – and now Target are stocking it and promoting it for your Xmas stocking” The women who started the petition follows on to say  {Quote} “This is Grand Theft Auto 5. This game means that after various sex acts, players are given options to kill women by punching her unconscious, killing with a machete, bat or guns to get their money returned. Please Target – we appeal to you as women survivors of violence, including women who experienced violence in the sex industry, to immediately withdraw Grand Theft Auto V from sale. Now as rediculous as this may sound, it is true.

Grand-Theft-Auto-V-25

At the moment over 40,000 people have signed the petition. The sad part is that almost under half of the 40,000 people who signed it actually signed it in order to comment on it with reasons why the petition and the women who started it were misinformed and that this petition is wrong. One of the people who signed it but were against it stated this {Quote} “It is impossible to commit acts of sexual violence on anyone in this game. The only sexual acts which can be carried out are consentual, either in the form of a lap dance or paid sex from a prostitute. The fact that the game allows these sorts of things to be done does not mean they are actively encouraged. Having sex with a prostitute is not needed to complete the game in any way and it certainly does not increase health.” So does the fact that the petition is being signed not just by supporters, but by those who oppose it mean that Target will follow through with it or will they just turn a blind eye to it? You can check out the petition at this link here –> https://www.change.org/ or click on the Quote links which will take you there as well. Also, don’t forget to leave a comment on what you think about this petition opposing the sale of GTA:5 at local Targets in Australia.

Petition for GTA V on PC Reaches Over 575K Signatures; But Don’t Hold Your Breath

GTA V RealGamerNewz

Despite the somewhat mixed response to past releases from Rockstar Games on Windows PC from the computer gaming community, the petition for Grand Theft Auto V (our RGN Review here) to hit the platform has continued to garner a massive interest worldwide. At the moment of this posting over 575,000 people have signed the petition for GTA V to come to the PC. One of the most likely reasons Rockstar Games has remained silent about this and has yet to reveal plans for a PC release is the fact that piracy is extremely high on the platform. Although every platform suffers from it in today’s gaming environment, we see ridiculously huge ratios on Windows PC.

It’s likely that if a PC version of the game does exist, it will not be shown or mentioned anytime soon in order for Take-Two Interactive to prevent Rockstar Games from shooting themselves in the foot in terms of jeopardizing Holiday 2013 sales of Grand Theft Auto V by encouraging pirates and bootleggers who would just prefer to sit it out and wait for a free copy to hit the illegal content sharing websites out there.

Some of the reasons petition signers have listed in terms of why they would like to see GTA V hit the PC include the ability to mod the game (which may also interfere with plans for DLC, as some of the modding community takes up the task of attempting to recreate officially paid DLC as free mods in worst case scenarios), and enhanced graphics (which may not exist at this point in time since the game was created as a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 exclusive with a large focus on gameplay).

If given enough time to satisfy investors and upgrade systems, Rockstar Games will probably address these issues and release a PC version that computer gamers can be proud of; complete with great modding ability and enhanced graphics. However, if it isn’t going to be perfect players might  be better off just biting the bullet and buying it for PS3 / 360 consoles this Holiday 2013 season to avoid the agony of not playing the world’s fastest selling video game in history.

Grand Theft Auto V Review

gta-v-logo-blanc-HD

Grand Theft Auto V has finally hit the shelves, and it’s already become the fastest selling game of all time. Leading up to release GTA V was arguably considered the most anticipated game of the year, if not of all time. It’s all about a group of very different criminals teaming up to pull off a heist in which they’ll all either fall once and for all, or finally make it big. Along with many other story sensitive things along the side, this review will save you from spoilers but give you a great intel if you’re one of those who still haven’t got the game yet. The freedom, the variety, the stories, and of course the ability to do whatever you want all over a big open world map have all come back as the fifth installment of Rockstar Games’ flagship series arrives exclusively on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Soundtrack, Audio, Voice: In terms of original score in this game I felt that music fit very very well into the HD GTA universe and followed up the tone for previous installments. As for the radio music some of the best yet in a GTA title are in this one with songs such as “I Don’t Care Anymore”, “Hood Gone Love it”, “The Setup”, “Sleepwalking”, “Ali Bomaye”, and “Illuminate”. Voice acting in GTA V is amazing as always with the authentic tone of the west coast hood, Hollywood (which is Vinewood in the game), and the country areas as well. Audio effects from weapon firing to cars and engines humming sound real and wonderful.

Graphics, Physics, Glitches, Engine Performance: GTA V is by far the best looking game to come to this generation of consoles with realistic faces and lighting affects so good you could get lost in them. Physics are the best possible for current gen hardware and will surprise you including the parachute coming out as a good example in this title. The only thing limiting this game is the fact next-gen couldn’t come soon enough. The use of the engine in various games after GTA IV has really helped them perfect it in this as it looks almost next gen with only minor pop-in textures here and there but besides that virtually flawless performance.

Controls / Gameplay: In terms of gameplay this is one those games were you can truly call a sequel in which everything is upgraded and better than before along with plenty of new features. The mechanics are just totally redesigned and improved. Driving is more like a racing game but with that GTA spin on it of feeling reckless at certain points in time but still comparable to high end racing games. Shooting is very different but still fits in a GTA game, I know people can compare it to Red Dead, L.A. Norie, and Max Payne but it feels more like GTA than anything to me. The same goes for the driving being compared to Midnight Club, for me it all feels like GTA evolved. The addition of three main characters adds an even deeper level of gameplay than any game before it. Each of them has a specific special power with Michael having “Bullet Effect” which slows down time to allow better aiming and making quick moves into cover.

Trevor’s power gives him a power boost which he can cause more damage but take less damage. Franklin can slow down time while driving to make fast octane turns between cars, corners, and various other objects and also allows him to shoot good in the car similar to Michael’s power. They also have a stat set which certain characters are better at things right away and they will also level up by performing those tasks more often.

Trevor is a good pilot and better in combat, Franklin is a better driver, Michael is a better shooter and better at silent movements. Switching between them in mission allows for better vantage points or for being able to do a different task, off mission will go into their daily life that could be waking up, spending time with family friends, driving, getting chased by cops or gangs, or being drunk in the desert. Playing Tennis, Golf, or Darts among many other things to do in the world of San Andreas allow for more variety of experience but are no longer necessary chores as in GTA IV. The world has so much to do yet again from street racing to racing in dune buggies, every last bit of gameplay is awesome. Even just watching TV or listening to the radio while maybe getting drunk or high is an experience worth having in GTA V. Now that it’s not a chore you’ll sometimes even enjoy going on hang outs (at your request only) with friends or picking up street hookers for some “fun” and STDs.

Story: You either Live or Die in Los Santos. Former bank robber Michael De Santa is living the “dream”, his “happy ending” sitting by his pool every day, all day, getting drunk and listening to his family hate him while Franklin is living in the hood as a 2 bit gangster and thinks everyone around him is a moron who lack larger goals in life (specifically more money and smarter ways of getting it). Trevor is living out in the desert countryside selling drugs, “making friends”, fighting people, and being Trevor. Throughout the game these men have to plan high-end heists and if they succeed to make it big they could become set for life.

There is a lot of context and side-content to the storylines in these character’s lives which they become faced with and make the game feel even more real such as Franklin living in the hood and Trevor pizzing people off, or Michael’s emotional and family problems. The game’s story is pitched near the top for me in crime drama. I would go further but this game is so spoiler-tense that to show compassion for you I will let you enjoy it yourself as it is truly an emotional experience. While being funny at times the story of GTA V takes itself very seriously and is similar to some of our own lives.

Grand Theft Auto V is not just a game about killing people, it is authentic and based on stuff that really does happen in America every day. Whether you’re engrossed in what’s going on with the story or not though, you’ll always be having fun during every moment of gameplay. Stop for gas some time and rob an armored car with a single grenade or help a desperate store owner from a couple of punk thieves via random encounters, or just buy stocks and items online while stalking people on lifeinvader,  the choice is in your hands.

Replay Ability: The Highest of the High

Final Verdict: Grand Theft Auto V is by far in my top of top games ever of all time. It brings new elements and remains highly successful at delivering a unique and powerful punch. The very amazing storytelling in this game is top notch, Rockstar Games has done it again. GTA V gains a perfect RealGamerNewz Diamond 10 out 10 rating, you can not miss this one.

Rockstar Doesn’t Want You to Install GTA V ‘Play Disc’ on Xbox 360; Here’s Why

Xbox 360 GTA V Install

As the title states, Rockstar has said that those who purchase Grand Theft Auto 5 for Xbox 360 should not install the play disc. For those of you who don’t know, the 360 version of Rockstar’s latest will come package with two discs. One requires a mandatory install to the HDD and the second is what allows you to play the game, hence  the name ‘Play Disc’. With the play disc you have the option to install or not, as with any other 360 disc.

The developers on the other hand recommend that you do not install it and instead just play the game straight off the disc. The folks over at DigitalFoundry have put together a video that explains why you shouldn’t. It involves textures, performance speed and such. Peep the video below and decide for yourself if you want to install or not.
