Recap & Screens: Grand Theft Auto IV & Episodes from Liberty City PC Social Club Multiplayer Event on Games for Windows Live (January 20)

Posted on January 31 2011, 12:02pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

On Thursday January 20th, we held another in our series of official live streaming multiplayer events. The games: Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City, the platform: PC playing on Games for Windows LIVE, the matches: glorious hi-def epicness. As always, thanks to all those who came through in-game, in the chat, watched the stream and entered to win prizes - always a good time.

Here are some memorable moments from the afternoon: 


The event started with Grand Theft Auto IV - a few rounds of Cops n' Crooks in Broker set the tone for the rest of the event. Alvaro Saa, Caleb141, Gwidon21 took the side of the law and waged war on the Crooks: PizzaPasta2000, kariwarez, ISI Thuga and N1 HardCore. Someoneelse 83 was tasked as the boss, but, with great power comes a target on your back as he was one of the first to get retired from a life of crime.


Next up in The Lost and Damned, we equipped grenade launchers and entered Liberty City for some Deathmatch. Here GwRockstar1 demonstrates the subtlety and precision of a grenade launcher as he blows away XaurozxZ and Michuya. Grats to PihtoDed on coming in 1st.


After a few minutes of Witness Protection, we switched over to The Ballad of Gay Tony where we collided...


...and wrecked...


...and raced. Tmk35 came out on top of the vehicular mayhem as he beat 30 other players around the airport in GTA Races in The Ballad of Gay Tony. Above, check out the calm before the storm as the insane lineup of players take their marks right before beginning what was to be an epic race. Tmk35 finished with a total time of 06:29:40. In 2nd, IvanGTAIV was able to end with 06:36:10. And GUSSI111 took 3rd place with a time of 06:51:60.


After some Deathmatch in Funland, we ended things messing about in Party Mode and Free Roam — as you can see, we kept it extra classy with the suits. Looks like Shortcot and MoDDyTR in the helicopter were aiming to toss GwRockstar1Akan22 and others into the next hemisphere. Mission successful. #FreeFlightToBohan


And finally, a bit later in Free Roam, we got wild in the streets with vehicles and weaponry, went basejumping, racing, and more... all in all, another grand event...

Again, thanks to everyone who joined in. Below is a list of everyone who got in on the action (if we missed you, just let us know in the comments...):

        Thanks for arranging these events for PC gamers as well!

        Please release RDR and L. A. Noire for the PC too!

        You guys rock!

          how do you download grand theftauto iv for pc
          • buzzwormon February 12 2011, 1:24pmReplyFlag
            The reason there is no PC version yet is because of console exclusivity. Rockstar is yearning to release Red Dead for the PC but they can't until after May. That would make it about a year since RDR was released. I'm TOTALLY GUESSING this info and only time will tell. It's sad though... I finally got around to building a custom gaming machine so I could be first on the block with games and now I have to wait. Oh karma. You're a bitch.

              Nice screens!

              It's definitely fun to play with Rockstars!

              On the other hand, I am truly excited with the announcements and releases of both Red Dead Redemption PC and L.A. Noire PC.

              I hope you take this into consideration and announce Red Dead Redemption PC very soon.

                      Yesterday, I was like watching La Femme Nikita, and I was thinking how awesomely cool and rockstar-ish it was, the french one not the american one.

                      Then I was like, [in creepy saw voice] "Hello Rockstar... I want to play a game..."

                      Also, can you guys make a Lobo game plz.

                        LOL, i appear like Alvaro Saa and Asaaj6.... Alvaro Saa is my GFWL nickname, and asaaj6 RGSC nickname.
                        But nice pictures, one of the best events ever... cops and crooks 16 vs 16... awesome... greetings R*

                        pd: @ivan.n ... am with you... WE WANT RED DEAD REDEMPTION to PC NOW!... Egypt join us... that is the real reason about that revolution. hahaha...

                                I think the same as ivan.n Well, i have PS3, but also PC gamers deserve to reside in one of the best games... And I think the company would get more money... "The games: Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City, the platform: PC playing on Games for Windows LIVE, the matches: glorious hi-def epicness".
                                It is a truly GLORIOUS HIGH DEFINITION EPICNESS and we're all grateful to Rockstar Games for such an amazing game for PC.

                                But... Where's Red Dead Redemption?
                                Why are PC players unable to taste the Rockstar's western world in the same way?
                                Just like XBOX 360 & PS3 communities, we're one too... A big one, though.
                                It's been almost 10 months, the game has won all GOTY awards and PC players are still unable to play it.
                                Why is it so impossible to bring Red Dead Redemption to the 3rd biggest gaming platform today?

                                Since I probably won't get an answer, please consider this question for the next Q&A post.
                                Thanks." Reggards from Spain...

                                        Err... was i really the 1st in gren launcher DM? I thought that match ended without GwRockstar1 because he left in the middle of the match, and i left too. Also, actually another people were blown away on 2nd screenshot, check this vid, 13:14
                                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM5nc4XjtnY&feature=player_embedded
                                        Not that it really matters, but nevertheless.
                                        Anyway, the event was great and only poor thing is that usually there are few ppl playing and all these 30-players races and other big matches happen not often.
