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.
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.

Holy mother of awesome. Red Dead Redemption is so good! I voted it as one of my Games of the Year (2010).
I think I need to apologise to my family members who were the unfortunate witnesses to my dancing around the house like a female Louis Spence because I read a pretty amazing interview in the Official PlayStation Magazine UK (OPM_UK on Twitter) that reignited my hope of there being a sequel to RDR.

Today in the glorious world of download has some real gems amongst the sea of absolutely terrible DLC.
First up, there’s the demo for the new, Criterion developed Need For Speed : Hot Pursuit (full game out on the 19th of November). In the demo, you get to test-drive the new Autolog feature and compete for bragging rights against one friend or an AI opponent.
Also on the Xbox 360 and PS3 online stores today is the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare DLC – commonly known as the reason for ‘ZOMBIE COUGARS’ being a trending topic on Twitter. The added bit of content lets gunslinger John Marston take on extra story mode and side mission to battle against the hordes of the undead.
If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, you can get 20% off the full price of this DLC!
Lastly, is a PS3 double exclusive (only available to PS3 users in the UK) in the form of the weekly interactive show, First Play. This week, for just 99p, they’ve got previews of F.3.A.R (FEAR 3), Shadows of the Damned as well as a round-up of the 3 scariest Little Big Planet levels and reviews of Fallout New Vegas and WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011. For 99p, that’s a bargain!

I am seriously looking forward to the massively anticipated sequel of the Assassin’s Creed games, the series with the most suave protagonists ever, after Uncharted, of course. The game will be amazing, most definitely, not even the snobbiest of critics can deny that, but I still have some loose ends and squabbles that need to be resolved in the upcoming game. Here are my 3 biggest annoyances that I really don’t want to see end up in Assassin’s Creed : Brotherhood.
