This just in from ..

wheazlnewsToday’s breaking news involves two players from the Rockstar Games fan community. The Site owners of Rockstarnetwork and Rockstarbase had a round of  discussions earlier today about high value Bawsaq stocks. That conversation led to a discussions of a site merger.  After a few bottles of Pißwasser, The two CEO’s hammered out a deal, along with the controlling share of the sites. The two finally agreed to a challenge match of QUB3D Online for a final deal decision.. 

When Wheazel News asked the head of Rockstarnetwork about the deal, he responded with this puzzling statement…

“The idea came to me when I was munching down some ego chasers and checking out the Bawsaq stocks for Sprunk. It just so happened that my friend from RockstarBase reached out to me on my life invader chatterbox.. We got a conversation going about stocks that led to a merger idea, and  It didn’t take long for us to figure out that was a great idea.  So we thought it out , and came up with this  as our shared statement.“ 

We can unite our sites and bring Rockstar fans more content that we feel is important to the community  from one site. Plus I totally kicked his ass at QUB3D online.”

 Greetings to all from Rockstarnetwork and RockstarBase.  Over a series of discussion as a team\group, we have come to a conclusion that will merge RockstarBase.com to become part of the Rockstar Network family. This will happen though a series of changes. Rockstar Base will become one with rockstarnetwork.net, and rockstarbase.com will become an archive site for past content to remain available to everyone.  RockstarBase staff will start functioning from Rockstarnetwork.net here forward.  Our logos will be combined to form a new logo that represents the interest of both sites, and other changes that will blend us together over time. We all have unique skills, talents and ideas. But we share a common goals and the same ideals about  involvement with the Rockstar Games community members. We expect an exciting year ahead for anything to do with Rockstar Games news, and our connections with the Fan’s and friends in the community.

About RockstarBase.com

When did Rockstarbase.com get it’s start? Way back in 2008, a little ol’ game title by the name of Grand Theft Auto IV was due out soon. Thomas got an idea, and he liked that idea.. So I put a bookmark up on a domain registrars  page, and dabbled with name ideas. He found one.. Then like a gun man at a convenience store in San Andreas, he pulled the trigger and bought a domain called Rockstarbase.com. He already had a serious passion for Rockstar Games and it’s already many popular titles.  Especially that good old classic, Grand Theft Auto – Vice City.  From that point forward, an amazing journey was built from that humble beginning. A journey that is still full of adventure, romance and .. wait no.. not romance.. Passion, yes a passion for gaming and reporting on it.. Plus it’s fun playing Rockstar’s games… The future for Rockstar Base is a story still being told. But let’s take a look back.. way back to the beginning of the year 2008. Which seems like a long time ago in internet time. It’s like we just walked out of the caves of hand coded HTML on the walls. Here’s a small snippet from one of his very first postings. A substitute logo has been used, due to the original one having vanished in the sea of lost bytes…

The insane amount of detail in Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V Screenshots

Check out our Grand Theft Auto V Page!

YouTube user GermanScientistTV (a.k.a me, Vic) made three videos showing the insane amount of detail Rockstar Games put into Grand Theft Auto V.

From the main characters sweaty clothes to crash cushions on the Los Santos and Blaine County Freeways, the attention to detail in the game is astonishing!

Check the videos out below and leave a comment with your favorite detail in the game!

We’ve played Grand Theft Auto Online at Rockstar Games

Playing Grand Theft Auto Online with the New York City skyline all around me was nothing short of amazing, but even more amazing was the Grand Theft Auto Online experience.

“I’m gonna pick you up when you’ve robbed that store! So, get out of there, jump in my car and I’ll escape from police.”
“All right, let’s do this!”

Above was just one of the conversations I had with another fansite webmaster when playing Grand Theft Auto Online at Rockstar Games in New York City.

Instead of writing a “review” or “report” I’ll be writing about the experiences I’ve had in the game and hopefully add to the anticipation of this amazing game!

The RV.
“I’m coming to pick you up with my RV, where are you?”
“I’m fighting off the military police after I’ve tried to enter the military base!”
“Well, hold on, stay alive!”

I found him on the beach with what seemed like the whole state of San Andreas chasing him.
He jumped in my RV and we drove of.

“Now I’m wanted as well, great! Let’s try to shake them of!”

Seconds later, the RV was torn to pieces and we died.

Welcome to Grand Theft Auto Online.

Synchronized.

The game  is very solid and everything is synchronized up perfectly.
After modifying my amazing executive car I picked up Casey from GtaGaming.com and we started cruising around the map.
When we looked at each other’s screen we noticed that everything was moving exactly the same.

Pistol on the roof!

I stole the first supercar in sight and went immediately after the person who just killed me; a Rockstar employee.

After driving across the map I finally found the Rockstar, but like a real Rockstar I got shot in the face with a shotgun and was murdered in cold blood once again.

THIS IS IT, I’M GOING TO KILL.

Jumped in the nearest car and found the Rockstar standing in front of a wall. “Perfect!” I thought. I floored the gaspedal and launched him into the wall he was standing in front of. But he wasn’t dead yet, so I shot him in the head with a pistol.

Revenge.. finally.

When I went after the Rockstar again I had all the confidence in the world but that quickly faded when I got killed from a rooftop with a pistol.

The game accurately registered all the bullets, even the pistol bullets coming from a rooftop, this isn’t child play.

I was mad but impressed at the same time, well done Rockstar.
HUGE.

I could write for days about the 7 hours I’ve spent in the Grand Theft Auto Online world and not even scratch the surface.
Grand Theft Auto Online is going to be everything you want it to be and more!

I want to thank Rockstar Games for giving me the opportunity to play Grand Theft Auto Online in  New York City.

They took care of everything and we all had a very good and memorable time.

Grand Theft Auto V Reviews Are Live!

After waiting for 5 years the release of Grand Theft Auto V is just around the corner.
Below are the first Grand Theft Auto V reviews from across the web:

 Source: Rockstar Games Newswire

“Grand Theft Auto V is not only a preposterously enjoyable video game, but also an intelligent and sharp-tongued satire of contemporary America. It represents a refinement of everything that GTAIV brought to the table five years ago. It’s technically more accomplished in every conceivable way, but it’s also tremendously ambitious in its own right. No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem. It tells a compelling, unpredictable, and provocative story without ever letting it get in the way of your own self-directed adventures through San Andreas. It is one of the very best video games ever made.”
“Set mostly within the glitzily superficial city of Los Santos, a warped mirror of Los Angeles, GTAV is a sprawling tale of criminal maniacs self-destructing on a blood-splattered career trajectory to hell… The genius of GTAV is in the sheer seductive force of its vision. The visuals are astonishing – just astonishing. Surely pushing this ageing hardware to the limits, we get the dense downtown with its soaring skyscrapers and murky, rubbish-strewn back alleys. But then out into the country, we have rolling grasslands and desert stretches, coyotes roaming, the shadows of eagles swooping overhead. The world drags you in. It begs you to explore – and then it rewards you. You feel every millimetre of the landscape has been thoughtfully handcrafted with the curious gamer in mind.”
“Everything works. It has mechanics good enough to anchor games of their own, and a story that is not only what GTA has always wanted to tell but also fits the way people have always played it. It’s a remarkable achievement, a peerless marriage of world design, storytelling and mechanics that pushes these ageing consoles to the limit and makes it all look easy. As we stand on the brink of a new generation, GTAV sends an intimidating message to the rest of the industry. Beat that.”
“The scale is dizzying. It’s insanely detailed too. Gangs loitering on street corners, cracked roads, foreclosure notices, and police searchlights cutting through the night sky give the poor areas of the city a tangible layer of grime. In Vinewood, sports cars glint in the sun, tourists snap pictures with their phones, and obnoxious starlets bray into their phones about movie auditions. Wander through the countryside and you’ll see backpackers, cyclists, and people walking their dogs. Extras in rubber alien costumes take smoke breaks on studio lots, and bikers cruise the desert highways… The world is breathtaking, the script is funny, the music is superb… and, most of all, it’s really, really fun.”
“Throughout GTAV you’ll swap between the trio, seeing San Andreas through the eyes of three wildly different personalities, each of whom brings their own breed of psychosis to one of the most exciting games of this generation… They’re all exceptionally written, and play off of each other well. Instead of forcing one character to climb his way up his own slice of the criminal underworld, GTAV does a remarkable job of providing each with their own motivations, their own missions, and their own personas you’ll come to love as you swap between them.”
“The driving is a lot looser and more exciting than it was in GTAIV, and the lock-on targeting and cover system means that you’re never fighting the controls in the middle of combat. It also looks great on current consoles, with a solid draw distance and a frame rate that takes few major hits along the way. Furthermore, the characters themselves emote well in cutscenes, which really helps make the story feel more meaningful. The city itself is nicely evocative of Los Angeles, as well, giving you GTA-ified equivalents of studio lots, the TCL Chinese Theatre, the Santa Monica Pier, and more. Little touches like lighting as the sun rises and sets go a long way, too. That all meets well with the game’s on-foot and on-mission soundtrack, which delivers tense backing tracks that heighten the heists whether you’re opening fire on the obstacles in your way or watching Michael slyly convince a guard that he is, in fact, supposed to be there. And all of it comes together to bring you a fantastic approximation of LA’s sleazy-yet-sunny West Coast vibe.”
“Grand Theft Auto V is the pinnacle of open-world video game design and a colossal feat of technical engineering… It dares the rest of the blockbuster industry to try and match its scope and, even with new consoles on the horizon, it may be some time before anything steps up.”
“…Rockstar Games has produced the most playable, well-plotted, character-driven, fictionally coherent entry in this 16-year-old series. The game is set in an immense, parodic vision of Southern California, a West Coast counterpoint to the caricature of New York City in Grand Theft Auto IV (2008). While Los Santos — the game’s version of Los Angeles — and its surroundings exist in an alternate reality, it is also a contemporary one that evokes and satirizes the anxieties of 21st-century life… Video games tell their own lies to their players: you’re powerful, you’re smart, you’re important, your problems can be solved if you just keep trying. And Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most beautiful, seductive lies yet uttered by our youngest creative medium.”
