Found on YouTube: GTAIV Gangnam Style

Posted on September 20 2012, 2:38pm | Author: R* A | Filed Under: Games

Whether you consider the current Gangnam Style dance video meme to be harmless fun or really, really horrible, we had to share this great use of the video editor we came across – a brand new machinima music vid that casts Niko at the helm, whooping it up all over Liberty City, in a car park, in a hospital between a cowboys legs, and more. Enjoy... or don’t...

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.

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.
