See Grand Theft Auto 4's Liberty City in brilliant black and white

The image above isn't a black-and-white photo of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan — it's an image from Liberty City in 2008's Grand Theft Auto 4, as captured by Dead End Thrills. Dead End Thrills shows off the beauty of video game worlds by taking pictures of them with special techniques, such as running games at very high resolutions, using mods and implementing unique visual filters. The site hosts an older set of Grand Theft Auto 4 screenshots in color, but this time around, Dead End Thrills posted the "Walkabout Series" in monochrome. For this particular group, the game was rendered at a resolution of 6K. Liberty City is resplendent in grayscale in dozens of images, from Algonquin (Manhattan) to Broker (Brooklyn) to Dukes (Queens) to Bohan (the Bronx) to Alderney (New...

Watch this silly and horrifying Flappy Bird GTA 4 mod

Flappy Bird has found its way to Liberty City with this slightly disturbing mod for Grand Theft Auto 4. The mod shown above by modders "julionib" and "quechus13" recreates the Flappy Bird experience with the addition of GTA's unavoidable pedestrian casualties. Players control The Ballad of Gay Tony protagonist Luis, whose head has been transformed into the titular yellow bug-eyed bird, as he flies through the city. Luis flaps his arms to gain height, and while he doesn't crash and burn for hitting scenery, one toe on the ground is lights out, with a smear of blood on the pavement for added measure. The mod even has a point counter. One point is given for every unsuspecting pedestrian Luis descends on, trouncing them into the ground, victims of world out of their control. No vehicle...

Google Glass app dev creates Grand Theft Auto 3 GPS map

Emerging Technology Lead and Google Glass app developer Mike DiGiovanni created a real-time GPS app Grand Theft Auto 3 players can use to navigate. The app recreates the in-game map, which typically sits in a bottom corner, using the Google Glass screen. Speaking with Examiner, DiGiovanni said he created the app due to annoyance about "how far out of your normal line of sight" the map typically is in Grand Theft Auto. "On a 47-inch TV it's merely inconvenient, but on a projector you feel like you are playing the mini map as opposed to the game," DiGiovanni told the publication. "GTA 4 benefited from having the high end cars give you voice based turn by turn directions. GTA 5 lost that and GTA 3 never had it. This puts the GPS in a much better location, but I think I'd probably be just...

Rockstar's Dan Houser would still love to make another Bully game

On one side you had lawmakers and anti-video game rabble rousers decrying the game's examination of and ability to bully. On the other you had freedom of speech defenders likening the game to such works as Judy Blume's Blubber. Caught in the middle: A video game consuming public that was coming into its own as a mainstream force and as a group expecting more serious, more adult topics in their entertainment. While the game was banned in Brazil and pulled from some stores in the U.K (and had to undergo a pre-release examination by a judge in Florida), the sensationalism that surrounded the game's release quickly subsided to be replaced by high praise. Earlier this month I had a chance to speak with Rockstar's Dan Houser bout the impending release of Grand Theft Auto 5 and, as things...

Take-Two quarterly revenue drops 37%, still 'better than expected'

Publisher Take-Two Interactive reported "better-than-expected" results for the first quarter of its 2014 fiscal year today, and although the company lost money in the quarter, it expects very positive results for the second quarter and full year. Take-Two's revenues for the quarter ending June 30, 2013, totaled $142.7 million, a 36.9 percent year-over-year decline that was expected because last year, the first quarter of the company's 2013 fiscal year contained two major releases in Max Payne 3 and Spec Ops: The Line. The company recorded a first-quarter 2014 net loss of $61.9 million, an improvement on the $110.8 million loss it reported one year ago. That net loss included a $29.6 million "impairment of capitalized software development cost" related to an in-development 2K title. T...

Grand Theft Auto 4 mod enables character swapping inspired by GTA 5

A Windows PC mod for Grand Theft Auto 4 allows players to swap between Niko and downloadable content characters Johnny and Luis.

One-man band covers Grand Theft Auto theme songs

Grand Theft Auto games are remembered for their eclectic soundtracks, but they also have some original compositions for main themes, and a YouTube musician has done spot-on covers of the songs. Going by the moniker of Squid Physics, the one-man band is a talented multi-instrumentalist, playing everything from mainstays such as guitar, bass and drums to string instruments like violin and cello to more exotic fare such as bongos and castanets. He's posted covers of the themes — the songs that play over the games' opening cutscenes — to Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto 4. You can watch the first one above, and the rest below. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Grand Theft Auto 4
