VC Stunt Video & More Mods

By Chris | 29th May 2005 at 00:22 GMT in Vice City | 11 Comments
Tonight I have added a new stunt video and a load more mods to the database - according to the previous poll it's what you wanted to see more of. First of all the stunt video named 'One Step Beyond'. It's the latest stunt video by ZeroX, the newest member of the ATS stunting crew. Only a solo video this time but still worth the watch!
The reason ZeroX made a solo video is because he wanted to improve his editing skills and didn't have the time to do a whole vid worth of new stunts, which is why you may notice a couple of older stunts mixed in with the new ones. The editing turned out pretty good.

And the new mods with both manual and .vcm versions for you, in no particular order:
1984 Porsche 911 Carrera - Manual :: VCM
1986 Jeep Cherokee - Manual :: VCM
Dodge Ram SRT-10 '04 - Manual :: VCM
Chrysler 300C '05 - Manual :: VCM
Toyota Supra '95 FnF - Manual :: VCM
Rancher FP-150 - Manual :: VCM
Peterbilt 379 - Manual :: VCM
Porsche 911 Twin Turbo '97 - Manual :: VCM
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI - Manual :: VCM
Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 - Manual :: VCM

Enjoy! This recent addition brings to over 500 mods in the database!

Inspired by talk of a new GTA game for PS3, avid fake screen constructor MVI has made a new screen with his take on what the gallery feature will look like, and in my opinion it's a pretty good representation.

Playstation 3 Details

By Chris | 17th May 2005 at 15:24 GMT in GTA IV | 10 Comments
The Playstation 3, or PS3 as it is rather known, has finally been revealed at the Electronics Entertainment Exposition (E3). It's alleged to be twice as powerful as Microsoft's recently disclosed Xbox 360. So we should see some fierce competition between the two, with Sony already seemingly striking the first blow against Microsoft with the more powerful console.

In related news, IGN have confirmed Rockstar will be supporting the PS3, unfortunately no new GTA game has as of yet been confirmed. Although one has to assume GTA4 will be made. Where will we all go if it isn't? We'll have to get proper lives!

If a new GTA game is confirmed we'll have all the latest news both here and over at GTAFour with out new linked news system which is all nicely categorized as you may well have noticed by now. Each section of the website now displays news from the appropriate category if you haven't.

Thanks to Neil for the heads up.

GTA Liberty City Stories

By Chris | 15th May 2005 at 11:38 GMT in Liberty City Stories | 10 Comments
Just one day before the start of E3 and gaming site Joystiq have essentially confirmed the name of the Grand Theft Auto PSP game.
Liberty City Stories will be its name.

I was able to check out a few of the booths being built at E3 this afternoon, one of which was that of Rockstar Games. It was pretty simple—basically just a bunch of buses parked inside a chainlink fence—but the important part was what was painted on the buses. You see, each one was dedicated to a different Rockstar project, and, nestled between a Midnight Club bus and a Bully bus (delightful alliteration, might I add), was a bus that was painted totally black but for a bit of text that read, “Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories” directly beneath the PSP logo. Could this be the official title of GTA PSP?
- Clutch

To further the claim, Rockstar Games are the registrant of the domain name which makes this a very viable name for the game.
We'll bring you more news as we get it. Our Liberty City Stories section of the website will from now on be reachable via, a rather apt domain for the game don't you think?

Thanks to Codename:GTA for the news.

New Community Stunt Video

By Chris | 1st May 2005 at 14:39 GMT in Vice City | 4 Comments
The guys over at GTAStunting have just released an excellent stunt video. Various community videos have been released over the years, but this one has to be the best. I can safely say it's the best stunt video I have ever seen.

Dedicated, released by it's editor NightKnight, is 5 minutes long and is over 80MB. Don't let the size put you off though, it's great quality, full off amazing stunts.

Download it Here.

On this note I'd like to say we are planning our own community stunt video, however I need to know that enough people are interested, and that you will have the PC version of the game, which judging by the previous poll a lot of you will.
Please be sure to vote in the newest poll and reply to this topic if you have any questions.
