Rockstar Lincoln, a UK-based studio that has been handling a lot of the quality assurance testing for Red Dead Redemption 2, is swearing off an approach that many employees say they had interpreted as mandatory overtime.
I played Red Dead Redemption 2 for the first time this week, and I swiftly caused glorious chaos.
There are countless turns and intersections in GTA Online, most of them unremarkable in every way. One specific sharp turn north of Los Santos, however, literally throws every single NPC driver for a loop. For some reason, the citizens of GTA Online seem to always crash or lose control while taking on this turn.
A number of gaming companies in the UK employ women in roles which, on average, pay less than the ones their male colleagues are in according to a new UK government database. At Grand Theft Auto makers Rockstar North, the gap is particularly large.
Karma Ingram wanted to transform Los Santos into something totally new and alien. So, he spent hours abusing a glitch to merge in-game props and lights. The process made his PS4 sound like a jet engine, as if it was struggling to keep up with this interstellar travel. Luckily, the PS4 didn’t overheat even as he…
With on-screen hands used for everything from drawing weapons to flipping the siren on a patrol car, L.A. Noire: VR Case Files nails one of the main features I look for in a virtual reality port. But it also has this hat.
The Doomsday Heist is the latest free update for GTA Online and one of the biggest the game has ever received. The update adds new toys, including missile launching trucks, stealth helicopters, orbital lasers and the long awaited jetpack. .The Doomsday Heist update also includes three new heists about saving the…
Jet packs, flying cars, underwater cars and a trip inside the mysterious Mount Chilliad—all that and more look like they’ll be part of The Doomsday Heist, a surprise “epic new online adventure” Rockstar announced today for Grand Theft Auto Online. It’ll be out on December 12.
I don’t think people say that Mass Effect “feels like sci-fi,” or The Witcher “feels like fantasy.” But people do say that Red Dead Redemption “feels like a Western,” and I’m compelled to agree. Why? Listen to the game.
Here’s the new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, which stars a new character named Arthur Morgan and is set before the events of the first game, as has been rumored.
I’ve been playing through L.A. Noire for the last month and a half on Kotaku’s Twitch channel. This weekend we finished the game. The conclusion is bittersweet but there was no other way for a tale of crime and corruption to end. Controversial in its day, L.A Noire’s ending is perfect when viewed in retrospect.
Red Dead Redemption released seven years ago today and remains a triumph. The tale of John Marston’s failure might be Rockstar’s finest story.
Despite being three years old, GTA Online is updated with new cars and weapons every month. Maybe you want to jump in for the first time, or are coming back from a break. Whatever the reason, here are some pointers for getting up and running in GTA Online.
For brief period over the weekend, Grand Theft Auto Online players were robbed of one of the game’s basic joys—they couldn’t steal police cars. Fortunately for them, the police couldn’t access them either.
This week, Rockstar Games released a big Grand Theft Auto Online update focused on stealing cars. Committing acts of grand theft auto, if you will. This new expansion is titled “Import/Export.” It adds new ways to make money and some wacky vehicles to spend that money on. The problem is that, unless you already have a…
Combining all of the extra content for Rockstar’s classic school days adventure that came in the Scholarship Edition with all-new asynchronous multiplayer arcade challenges, Bully: Anniversary Edition is available today for iOS and Android devices.
Red Dead Redemption and its Undead Nightmare expansion arrive on PlayStation Now on December 6. Subscribers to Sony’s streaming game service can get their Marston on via PS4 or PC. I could have headlined this “Play Red Dead Redemption on PC Next Week,” but I’m not a monster.
Today’s Deadline update for Grant Theft Auto’s ever-expanding multiplayer component transforms GTA Online into GTA Tronline, with futuristic light-trailing motorcycles and a new adversary mode in which to crash them.
PlayStation and Rockstar Games announced a partnership today that will give Ps4 players first dibs on “select online content” in Red Dead Redemption 2. The Fall 2017 game is, in PlayStation’s words, “hand crafted to take full advantage of PS4.” More details on PlayStation’s partnership with Rockstar Games are on their…
