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

Rockstar offering printable maps from original GTA trilogy

Grand Theft Auto players in need of a map from the original trilogy can download high-resolution printable copies directly from Rockstar Games' website. Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas are all available in their original forms; each copy is the same poster design that accompanied the games at release. According to Rockstar, the maps are a "friendly service for everyone downloading the Vice City Anniversary Edition release for mobile devices and navigating their way around the beaches, mansions, nighclubs, glitz and ghettos of Vice City." Posters for San Andreas are a nod to the game's PlayStation Network release just last week, while Grand Theft Auto 3 is available now for Android and PSN.
