GTA V has been out for a year now! In that time you’ve likely lost count of all the slow-moving pedestrians you’ve mowed down, the bullets you’ve sprayed the scenery with and the great heights you’ve tumbled off of as playable characters Michael, Trevor and Franklin. If you haven’t got the game then you’ve probably spent a similar amount of time grumbling about GTA V’s new gen release, it’s delayed PC release date and general wishes and complaints for the game to launch on our shiny new consoles and systems just a little bit sooner. No matter your feelings on the game’s past year, Rockstar are looking to commemorate the one year anniversary with you, having now uploaded a boatload of previously unreleased GTA V artwork. It beats the usual paper anniversary gift anyway. Images after the break.
Continuing to well and truly push the boat out with their games, Rockstar’s tongue in cheek, rags-to-riches series, Grand Theft Auto is back with GTA 5 trailer #2, giving us a preview of Los Santos’ (the fictional California-like world of GTA 5) craziest and wealthiest characters as we meet the three characters that will be playable at the GTA 5 release date.
Back in the series are planes, helicopters, cars (some fast, some rust-bucket-y) as well as high-speed chases, less than legal dealings and those that anyone old enough for a Winter heating benefit would call “hoodlums.”, as well as some extremely pretty cutscene footage showing that GTA 5 is completely obliterating the graphical and lighting standards set by GTA IV all the way back in 2008.

When it comes to appealing to their fanbase, Rockstar really are the experts, after we brayed like injured wolves on their doorsteps for morsels, scraps, just anything GTA 5 related, they’ve released two new GTA 5 screenshots to shut us up and make us go away (until we come back again begging for GTA V gameplay footage).
Living up to its translated name of “The Saints”, the fictional GTA 5 setting of Los Santos is proving to be just as we expected – it looks a lot like real life city, “The Angels”/Los Angeles. And while the screenshots don’t do much, other than confirming our thoughts that GTA 5 is really, really pretty, like, put these screenshots in Vendi couture and send them down a runway sort of gorgeous, what the new GTA 5 screenshots do is sate our appetites, tiding us over as we wait for GTA 5 gameplay footage, which developer and publisher of the franchise, Rockstar Games, say that they will not be revealing “for a while yet”.
In any case, you can see GTA 5’s visual awesomeness after the break.

It’s a little known fact that November is actually the best month on a gamer’s calendar. Sure, December is wonderful with Christmas being an excuse to stuff your face and get chocolate wasted, but does the final calendar month have the release of Uncharted 3? No. Does it have the release of Modern Warfare 3? Again, that’s a no. And the most important reason that November trumps the month of Yule? Well, November is “Movember”.
For those of you out of the loop, Movember is the annual event that takes place worldwide throughout the entirety of November. Men (Mo Bros), cheered on my the women in their lives (Mo Sistas), shave their faces on the 1st of the month and spend the remaining 29 days growing, grooming and perfecting the almightiest example of facial hairiness that they can come up with. It’s not just for lulz though, the occasion is actually to raise money and awareness for men’s health (specifically prostate cancer).
To kick off the month of ‘tache appreciation, I’ve put together a list of the best razor-dodgers in gaming, enjoy! (Info on how to donate to the Movember cause is at the bottom of the post).

For anyone who doesn’t know, my ‘party’ series is where I list a bunch of fantastic gaming goodies that I’ve found on the Internet – inducing videos, pictures and links to great gaming articles.
The first thing on the agenda today, before I deliver you a whole stack of the incredibly awesome, super-cool gaming delights, is that these round-up posts of sorts really need a new name instead of ‘MEDIA PARTY’
Leave your suggestions in the comments, please!
I’ve been scouring the web just for you and have been asking fellow gamers for submissions and I can tell you that I’ve put together a list of corkers!
My personal favourite thing in today’s post is a Little Big Plant 2 mini-movie, put together using tools available in the game’s beta. There’s also some geeky items for your house and Grand Theft Auto, Mario style.
