The 2016 Red Hook Criterium Championship Cycling Series

Posted on March 10 2016, 1:01pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

Rockstar Games is proud to announce the return of the Red Hook Criterium Championship Series in 2016, continuing our ongoing support as title sponsor of the international track bike racing series for the 4th straight year.

With four spectacular events scheduled in Brooklyn, London, Barcelona and Milan, competitors will race laps around an approximately 1km circuit filled with turns, chicanes, and hairpins – on brakeless, fixed gear track bikes hitting speeds up to 35 mph. Taking cues from international motorsport, athletes first compete in timed qualification rounds to establish grid positions for the finals. These finals, traditionally raced at night, are held in front of thousands of cheering spectators who bring the crit’s signature festival atmosphere to life at every destination.

2016 SCHEDULE:
•    April 30: Brooklyn, NY, USA
•    July 9: London, UK
•    August 27: Barcelona, Spain
•    October 1: Milan, Italy

Athletes accumulate points for finishing each race, traveling from one city to the next, vying for a position on the championship podium. With the continued, four-race schedule, riders will need to perform consistently if they are to contend for the series trophy with each race undoubtedly bringing its own dynamism throughout the season. 2015 Series Champions Ivan Ravaioli (Team Cinelli Chrome, Italy) and Ainara Elbusto (Conor WRC, Spain) will return in 2016 to defend their titles against fierce rivals and ambitious newcomers alike.
 
For those who don’t always net points but race with tenacity and determination, there’s the coveted Rockstar Games Top Antagonist Trophy to be awarded in both the men’s and women’s feature races to the athlete who without consideration for their final position, most affects the outcome of the race through a combination of tactics, determination, and sheer strength.

GTA Online Updates Today: Drop Zone Adversary Mode plus New Sultan and Banshee Customizable Wide Body Race Cars

Posted on January 28 2016, 10:54am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Freefall your way into Drop Zone, the latest addition to GTA Online on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In this new Adversary Mode, teams of paratroopers jump from Cargobobs hovering high above, then race to the ground to seize and maintain control of a small, exposed patch of terra firma. No man is an island here - you and your squad mates will need to attack and defend as a unit. 

With four teams and up to 16 players zeroed in on the target area, this mode is fast, chaotic and prone to huge swings in fortune. First team to hold the drop zone for a total of two non-continuous minutes wins. There are five Drop Zone maps, each requiring a unique approach to deal with changes in terrain and cover. These can be found at Pillbox Hill, Richman College, Elysian Island, the Mirror Park cul-de-sac and the Sisyphus Theater. 

Now at Benny's: New Vehicles and Upgrades

Benny is branching out with new upgrade types for two new cars. Pick up the Karin Sultan and Bravado Banshee at a low entry price in the updated Stock section of bennysoriginalmotorworks.com.

Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and even his own mother stand in the way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone family control.

Originally designed with mobile gameplay in mind, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories returns with enhancements including real time lighting and shadows, upgraded textures and art, greater draw distance, performance enhancements for touch-based gaming including updated analog steering and rebalanced targeting, cross-platform cloud saves via Social Club, support for Apple’s 3D touch and more.
