Two Rockstars have Become One.
Rockstar Games recently announced their decision to merge two of their successful divisions in video game entertainment. The Canadian government supported this decision, so Rockstar will open a new office in Oakville, Ontario that is custom-built. All members of the Vancouver facility will be given the opportunity to join forces with Rockstar Toronto.
ESRB listings point to a PS2 Classics release.
Two ESRB listings have leaked what appear to be upcoming PlayStation 3 rereleases of Grand Theft Auto 3 and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Neither Rockstar nor listed publisher Sony have announced anything, though this is the second time in 2012 the two games have been listed by the ESRB, following a similar leak back in January.
Remember when the shoot-dodge was your best bet for success?
Max Payne 2 was a game that did two things amazingly well: it provided a dark, deep, and gritty story that was accentuated by its film noir approach, and it offered unique third person shooting that was unlike anything else thanks to the bullet time system. Max Payne 3 brings both back, but neither is executed to the degree of excellence seen in the past iteration of the series.
Just don't expect it to work on a new computer.
If you like free games, there’s a pretty easy way to score Midnight Club II on your Steam account through the weekend. Simply join the Rockstar Steam community before 10 AM PDT on May 15 and a free, non-giftable copy of the game will arrive in your account sometime before May 29. Just be aware that this version of the game won’t run on Windows 7 or Vista. This probably limits the audience for the game considerably, but for those still rocking Windows XP on an aging rig might finally have a new game to boot up on their systems.
The saga continues this May.
Today, Rockstar Games officially announced the release date for the third game in the Max Payne series. Releasing first in America on consoles, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners will be able to pick up Max Payne 3 on May 15; May 18 it will release internationally. On May 29 the game will release for PC in America, followed by a June 1 international release.
An ex-Rockstar employee is claiming to know all about the new game.
Someone going by the Twitter handle TorontoJack233 claims to be an ex-employee of Rockstar and posted this picture of what he claims to be the overview map for Grand Theft Auto V. The game takes place in the fictionalized version of Los Angeles called Los Santos and the map shows as such.
