Rockstar Fansites Roundup: NightFall Video, Sticker Bombing, GTAIV Machinima, Red Dead in Liberty City Mod & GTA Fan Art

Posted on September 19 2012, 3:29pm | Author: R* A | Filed Under: Rockstar, Games

Here's a quick look across the landscape of dedicated fansites covering Rockstar and our game titles. These guys have been riding with us for quite a while now so big thanks to them for the longtime support - we recommend stopping by their sites to have a look at lots of additional content and analysis from the fan perspective. Here's some cool stuff out there we've seen recently...

  • The team at RockstarBase are getting into the Los Santos spirit with an article entitled "Pre GTAV: LA Time Lapse", featuring a really spectacular video of the real City of Angels at NightFall. We recommend to go HD and fullscreen to see it in full splendor.

  • GTAGaming recently highlighted The Adventador Redemption, an incredible new bit of narrative machinima created by Beat with Grand Theft Auto IV PC. Telling a dark and stylized crime story of a Russian assassin - it's definitely worth a watch above.

    They also let their readers know about Red Dead Desert '12, a new mod for GTAIV PC that gives you a wide open desert to explore, including cliffs, big rocks, a cave mine, an airfield, oil refinery, dirt trails, new vehicles and a whole lot more.

A pair of fan created artwork pieces depicting Niko and CJ respectively from MikeMeth.

We always keep a close eye at what's going on in throughout our fan community, so stay tuned for more updates on articles and pieces of interest.

If you own or belong to a fansite that's running a particularly fun poll, have posted a great article, or anything else noteworthy, feel free to drop us a line at letting us know and we'll have a look for consideration to feature in an upcoming edition of the Fansite Roundup.

      Yep the Nightfall video is f**king amazing! One of the best things ever posted on youtube and they forced it down. Idiots. Such an inspiring video. If anything it would have helped them sell more of M83s music by increasing their audience. And the irony is that it made me buy M83s cd because it created a positive association. I think back to that video every time I listen to the song. I'm a sucker for cityscapes at dusk/night and have a few that I usually use as my desktop background. I think the one i'm using now is of Singapore. And it's a very fitting video with respect to their official video for Midnight City and the way it opens in regard to the lyrics.

      To me the beginning is like the heartbeat of the city where you can see the traffic moving through the arteries and then it comes alive at night. Reminded me of the GTAIV trailer too. Definitely bring back a trailer tied to catchy music for GTA V similar to what you did for 3, VC and SA. Money Maker by Black Keys! I love driving to that song and hell it comes off a cd named El Camino. (They named it after the car and didn't find out about the translation until afterwards.) Closeup of a sports car with tires squeeling against the road in the 2 seconds before those opening chords start blasting would rock. Faster cuts/action with the guitar and longer ones with the city or some dialogue inbetween. And prostitutes because controversy sells. That'd be awesome.

        @ghostx1984 I hate city life, too barbaric and full of cowards.

        But the thing I love about landscape city pictures at night, is that when we aren't kissing arse or back stabbing, or f**king someone over for a penny in our pocket. A city lit up at night shows that when we stop all the f**king about, we can stand back and see that we made something work.

                      @R* point one

                      i created a video useing gtaiv's video editer a yyear or so ago called hop which basicily tells niko's story in a more cinematic form and would really apreciate it if you would consider having a look.


                      final point what is you overall opinion of mods as in vechles being changed to real life ones or charactors and so on
