Fan Vids: Other Places - São Paulo Edition, Iconic Film Remakes, Musical Horn Fun & More

Posted 1 week, 1 day ago | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

The latest batch of auspicious and audacious fan created videos includes a journey back to the sun soaked urban horizon of São Paulo in Max Payne 3, awesomely inspired movie and television videos making the rounds, the use of Los Santos Customs as an impromptu music studio of sorts and more.

Other Places: Sao Paulo (Max Payne 3) by ultrabrilliant

We've been dazzled before by ultrabrilliant's "Other Places" video series (check out Grand Theft Auto V's San Andreas here). In this video, he takes a stroll down through the bullet-ridden back alleys and winding thoroughfares of Max Payne's 3's rendition of São Paulo, Brazil. From the stark poverty of the favelas in Nova Esperança, to the seedy aftermath of a gunfight in the O Paliaca Strip Club, enjoy a quiet moment alone with the scenery and see the vast economic contrast therein on the neon soaked dance floors and opulent modern interiors of places like Club Moderno, the Branco residence and the glaring floodlights of the Galatians Stadium.

GTA 5: Terminator 2: Judgment Day Remake (Truck Chase Scene) by John Chapman

Few cinematic chase scenes are as memorable and iconic as John Connor's desperate dirt bike flight from the menacing and seemingly indestructible T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. From his narrow parking garage escape to the harrowing semi-truck chase through the storm drain, a large portion of the film's original shots and camera angles are recaptured faithfully in this heart-pumping presentation. We hope film editor and director John Chapman and the Legendary Gaming family will "be back" with something clever like this again sometime in the near future.

GTA Online "Kill Thrill" vol.1 montage | GTA 5 free aim multiplayer HD PS3 by El Serpe

In an ode to Quentin Tarantino's two-volume epic, Aegis Legion's accomplished film editor and director takes on the persona of The Bride to unleash a reign of death and dismemberment. Subbing in the Heavy Sniper rifle for the Hattori Hanzō katana and a powerful Combat MG that would surely give the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique a run for its money, we see all of El_Serpe's enemies get crossed off the "Death List Five".

The addition of the Do Re Mi Car Horn Scale to Los Santos Customs in the High Life Update has generated some fantastic musical creations, including this inspired rendition of one of AC/DC's classic rock anthems. Creator LUKENBACKER lays out a great arrangement here and funnels in a few audio tweaks to really bring it home.

GTA Online Creator Jobs On Film: Creative and Challenging Custom Jobs as Demoed by NerdCubed, Olli43 and More

Posted 3 weeks, 1 day ago | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

For many GTA Online players, the Creator tools have not only been a great way to experience the best Races, Deathmatches and Capture Jobs created by fans, they've also proven to provide a platform for endless creative fun meta-games and other forms of impromptu GTA-style challenge mayhem.

If you're looking for some of these fun and original GTA Online creations to play with your friends and Crewmates, check out just a few of these custom Jobs that have been recently featured in videos from some of the GTA YouTube community's finest broadcasters such as NerdCubed, the GTA-Series gang and others.

Video: Little and Cubed: MotoJousting! - GTA Online by OfficialNerdCubed
Job: Lac15 by TheNerdCubed

Dan NerdCubed and YOGSCAST Martyn put on a regular collaborative series on YouTube called “Little and Cubed” where the two gentlemen get into all manner of over-the-top challenges made with the Creator tool. “Motojousting” above is certainly one of our favorites. It’s simple yet brilliant fun: two ramps strategically placed opposite one another on the Del Perro pier with a cache of motorbikes and shotguns available off to the side. The object of the game is - each player grabs a shotgun and backs up their trusty motorbike steeds to opposite ends of the pier. From there: JOUST! Both opponents must charge the center, launch off the ramps and attempt to dismount the opposing player in mid-air with a blast from their sawn-off. Watch the video above to see it in all its hilarity and glory.

Job: Vespucci Gymkhana Drift by Antechs

When it comes to drifting around the tight corners and alleyways of Los Santos, the Karin Futo is a very popular choice. Here, AyDeeJayProductions shows off a friends' specially designed drift Race around Vespucci in a stylish video presentation that runs from sun up to sun down, beginning and ending at the Smoke On the Water cannabis dispensary.

Video: GTA 5 Online: Ultimate Bike Challenge! (GTA 5 Custom Job Showcase) by Olli43 
Job: Moto SKILL TEST (bridge) by IxI-eZuLa-IxI

If you think you're among the best when it comes to two wheel racing in GTA Online, have a go at this grueling test of expert motorcycling skills from prolific stunt and skill Race Creator IxI-eZuLa-IxI. This trek leads you over the rooftops of southwest Los Santos down to the lowest recesses of the subway and back up to street level for an even crazier time maneuvering through narrow crevices and semi-ambiguous checkpoint locations. The final devastating stretch requires you to drive southeast along the narrow bridge supports of the La Puerta Freeway Bridge and make a leap of faith down to the final marker resting on a cargo ship below. Not for the timid or easily frustrated, and borderline masochistic at times - check out Olli43's attempt to see just how much patience and persistence is required to reach the finish line. Once you’ve mastered that one, have a go at IxI-eZuLa-IxI’s other fine ‘skill test’ trials series Jobs.

Video: GTA V - We Go Both Ways: Sandking XL Chaos! by swiftor 
Job: We Go Both Ways by MTL_RELLIK

Equal parts Race and demolition derby, this hectic Job from MTL_RELLIK will have you dodging head-on collisions as you travel back and forth on an enclosed stretch of the Highway 1 Bridge. In the video description, swiftor lists the three reasons that make this Custom Race amazing as: "1) Flexible for a wide variety of vehicles 2) There's a lot of opportunity for interaction between racers 3) Seeing others get totally effed up when they collide!" While this is certainly a great recipe for disaster, try this Job as a GTA Race to really multiply the mayhem.

Video: GTA Online: Race Review, Activity #01 by GTASeriesOnline
Job: Pure Insane Madness by AlphyX

AlphyX, a member of the GTASeries Crew and their spin off YouTube channel GTA Series Online, got together with fellow Creators from The Content Creator Club to review his four-way collision-fest Pure Insane Madness. The discussion itself is spoken in Italian but you’ll probably agree that the language of the action shown in this exquisitely made demo video is international. Give this Land Race through the dusty backroads of Sandy Shores a go – AlphyX recommends at least 5 or 6 players for optimal fun..

 

For much more, make sure you’re following us on Twitter where we share fun and creative GTA Online videos that feature gameplay of custom Creator Jobs on the regular.

GTA Fan Vids: Latest from the Stunting Scene with Freefall, BMX and Jet Daredevils, Plus 8-Bit GTAV & More

Posted on June 2 2014, 1:54pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

Check out some of the latest and greatest videos to come out of the esteemed GTAV stunting scene – with an array of daredevils who challenge gravity with death defying tricks on BMX bikes, bulky monolithic jets and even some heart-dropping freefalling feats. This week’s roundup of standout GTA fan videos also features the return of the 80s obsessed MajamiHiroz with an 8-bit rendition of the original GTAV trailer, a campy homage to the old school TV staple The Fall Guy and lots of other fun clips rounded up down bottom. Enjoy!

REDKEYMON'S FREEFALLING FEATS

GTA 5 - SUPERMAN STUNTS by RedKeyMon

True believers, bear witness to amazing stuntman RKM as he trades in his agile wall-crawling Pegassi sports bike for a parachute to don the red and blue of another super iconic hero. Plummeting his way through the narrowest gaps and spaces of the LS skyline, he doesn't pull the ripcord until after threading some unbelievable needles, making "falling with style" look second nature.

LIFTED & GIFTED BMX STUNTS

"Get High" GTA V BMX Stunts Montage by TheGalleTasHD & DutchHDgamer

This stylish collaboration between GTAV Stunter DutchHDgamer and video editor TheGalleTasHD is the perfect blend of technique, graceful landings and savvy camera placement. With the vibe of an extreme sportsman's day well spent, getting elevated over the rooftops of Los Santos, pulling off some seriously sick tricks on the LSI tarmac - and perhaps most notably, a meticulously timed circus act employing a Truffade Adder, a Titan and a HVY Dump truck (at 1:40, graciously slow-motioned for your enjoyment).

MAJAMIHIROZ' UNEARTHED 1990 VERSION OF GTAV

Grand Theft Auto V (Commodore 64) by MajamiHiroz
You may recall the 80s obsessed Majami Hiroz (aka Hungarian animator Balazs Kalocsai) for previous efforts featured here at the Newswire such as Vice City and even L.A. Noire re-imagined as 'lost' games originally released for the Commodore 64. This week, Hiroz returned with an awesome shot-for-shot remake of the original Grand Theft Auto V trailer in 8-bit midi scored glory purportedly from the game's 1990 C64 origins.

LEGENDS OF THE FALL GUY

The Fall Guy ( Ein Colt für alle Fälle ) GTA 5 Intro by ODog HBDogs

"It's a death-defying life I lead... I take my chances..." Speaking of the 80s, those of a certain age may fondly remember the network TV series The Fall Guy for its campy humor, over-the-top stunts and glamorous celebrity cameos. German YouTuber ODog HBDogs, working in collaboration with members of the GTA V Fall Guys and PainKillaZz Crews, has put together a delightfully nostalgic homage filmed on location in Los Santos and Blaine County that matches up well against the original with big explosions and set-piece spills to match.

THE ALL-PURPOSE TITAN

GTA 5 TITAN STUNT MONTAGE! #2  by DALLMYD

We've seen a wide array of videos boasting impressively staged and improvised vehicle stunts, and this one from DALLMYD features the surprisingly versatile Titan in the starring role. Beyond putting on a fine air show, the beast of a military plane also proves to double nicely as a motorbike launching pad, a perfect BASE jump plank that can accommodate your whole Crew, and a makeshift Speedophile ramp.

JET-SETTING

FrannciiSs (BRAKEC_) | Jet Domination | GTA5 by xFrannciiSs

FrannciiSs's Jet Domination montage featuring the P-996 Lazer starts off as a serenely chill showcase of an adrenaline-junkies pleasures traversing high and low over the rooftops and bridges of Los Santos. Then at about the 1:30 mark it really kicks into high gear with an impressive reverse takeoff that transitions into slick aerial maneuvering, with a particularly stunning one-winged spiral through the La Mesa storm drain canals.

GTA Online Creator: Fan-Made Rockstar Throwback Jobs

Posted on May 21 2014, 10:53am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

We recently took a look at a fan-made GTA Online playlist of created Jobs inspired by scenes from The Warriors and asked fans to share any Jobs they may have made in homage to favorite films or even our own games of yesteryear. For Rockstar fans feeling nostalgic, here’s a roundup of a few player-made Creator Jobs that came to our attention that have either been made in direct tribute to or are otherwise certainly reminiscent of classic Rockstar titles like Manhunt, Midnight Club, Smuggler’s Run and more. Check ‘em out and feel free to bookmark them for a play.

ALL EYES ON YOU

Carcer City by Zayvorne (Team Deathmatch)

By day, Textile City appears to be a colorful tapestry of fabrics and commerce. As darkness descends and the rain starts to fall, the lawless streets of this trader's square suddenly run red with bloodshed. Small arms weapons are gathered near the center of this map, but venturing further out to the eastern fringe you'll discover a few hidden surprises to aid you in putting on quite the show for viewers at home.

MANHUNT by staggeredguitar (Deathmatch)

Staggeredguitar invites players to "stab, bat and brutalize in this close quarters Manhunt style map". The narrow alleys and tight corners in downtown Rancho cement an unnerving atmosphere where you find yourself having to make careful choices about when and where to climb in pursuit of your prey. Touching down in someone's backyard, you may find yourself overrun by an enemy lying in wait or encounter a Molotov cocktail crashing down upon you, leaving no place to avoid the flames. If you enjoy this one, be sure to also check out Staggered's other Manhunt nods, MANHUNT (URBAN BEATDOWN) and MANHUNT (PIER PRESSURE).

DOWN & DIRTY

Smuggler's Run by Ackidapacki  (Land Race)

Drug smugglers are moving a larger shipment of product that has arrived in Paleto Bay. The thing is: the buyer is in Los Santos. First car there gets the payday of their lives.” There are four vehicle classes available for this endurance testing jaunt - Muscle, Off-Road, SUVs and Vans. While the Race begins on the smoothly paved west Highway 1 near Paleto Bay, things suddenly take a rural turn via a sharp left angle leading back into the Paleto Forest. Shooting straight up to the zigzags of the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, you'll find many opportunities to send an opponent spiraling off a hillside into an unforgiving ravine below. As you return to the civilization of Elysian Island and Banning you will literally smash through the gates towards the finish line but be mindful of the last few turns along the off-road trail in Rancho. You may be far from the northwest wilderness but you're just a sharp cut-off away from eating dirt.

Smuggler's Run by giftedhanz19  (Capture)

This dry and barren stretch of desert wedged between the West Vinewood Hills and the Zancudo River pits "two teams to fight over an already occupied bag of goods", per creator giftedhanz19. By "already occupied" he means you will be interrupting a transaction in progress and the local yokels will not take too kindly to two groups of interlopers invading from the northern and southern parts of the map. Use all manner of off-road vehicle to make your escape but avoid the open roads as that will make it far easier for greedy pursuers to close the distance and snatch back the goods you've stolen.

BRING THE PAYNE

 

Max Payne 3 by GroveSTHome (Team Deathmatch)

If you spent countless hours battling it out within the posh corporate hallways and spacious lobbies of Branco Headquarters or exchanging gunfire along the rooftops of Club Moderno in Max Payne 3, this Created Job located in the attractively modern and remote confines of the Kortz Center offers up some of the best elements from your favorite Bullet Time shooter. Whether you're posted up in one of the many exterior stairwells, doing strategic sweeps with the Buzzard Attack Chopper or creeping through the hedge maze you'll have more than enough ample opportunities to keep the blood flowing and the bullets flying.

Hold: Gang Wars by Hiroshio  (Capture)

Also channeling the spirit of Max Payne 3 Multiplayer is a clever Capture by Creator Hiroshio, who seems to have a clear vision for this intense West Vinewood to Chamberlain Hills battle. Hiroshio states, "Your initiation into the gang consists of stealing. We've gotten word that multiple shipments of weapons and cash have been delivered. Steal these shipments and drop them off at our HQ. These shipments will be heavily guarded. Our gang members don't know you yet so they will shoot you on sight. Also beware of rival gang members. We're not the only ones who know about this." Los Santos may be quite a bit northwest of São Paulo but the challenging bag placement and vicious NPC Gang factions will make you start fiending for pain killers in no time.

ROCKSTAR SoCAL CLUB

Midnight Club by Geordieboy89 (Land Race)

This large circuit around the city, appropriately set in the dead of night, contains many strategic jumps and potential explosions. Starting out in centrally located La Mesa, you make your way east from Murietta Heights past several landmark locations and end up going as far south as Elysian Island, rounding the trek back to the finish line near Los Santos International Airport. The course itself is littered with wreckage and has a few ramps that are mandatory for clearance to the next checkpoint. For two decidedly different Race experiences, switch to motorbikes on your second playthrough and watch out for those unforgiving highway road signs.

Midnight Club by Licky106  (Land Race)

This pedal to the metal, tire tread destroyer starts out in Rockford Hills, cutting a seismic fault line through West Vinewood, Burton, Richman, GWC and will even turn a few snooty heads near the Golfing Society if you opt to run this course during the daylight hours. Along this circuit, you'll encounter no less than four deceptively placed, razor sharp right turns that are specifically designed to promote car-on-car collision. If you are approaching one of those said turns amongst an armada of fellow racers, it may behoove you to let them race ahead directly into the turn and then nimbly skate by the twisted pileup unscathed.

SCHOOL DAZE

Bullworth by festivecave (Team Deathmatch)

It should come as no surprise that a Social Club member who is enrolled in the Bullworth Alumni Rockstar Crew would endeavor to recreate the campus hijinks of Bully in GTA Online. With the campus at the University of San Andreas Los Santos serving as the backdrop, you can duke it out with your most contentious classmates to prove who's the BMOC.

Bully by AVERIX72 (Deathmatch)

With plenty of melee weapons in plain view and only a few firearms scattered sparsely around this one, it'll be a recess-style mad dash to gain the upper hand in this chaotic DM. Lure opponents out to the center of the ULSA track-and-field stadium to show them the grass isn't the only thing getting mowed down today (you may also notice a cameo appearance from the Mower - a little nod to Jimmy Hopkins' many labored hours of detention).

 

If you’ve made or have come across any other fun homage Jobs whether based on a nostalgic Rockstar title, a favorite GTA mission or a classic film or TV show, share them with the community in the comments below – or send them our way directly to check out via mouthoff. GTA Online Creators can also feel free to tag #Throwback to your creation and we'll be looking at those in the future too to easily find and play them.

New Rockstar Verified Jobs: GTA Online #CaptureWeekend Selections

Posted on April 29 2014, 2:56pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

Congratulations to the #CaptureWeekend Award selections, the first four GTA Online Capture Jobs to be recognized as Rockstar Verified. Chosen from among the scores of creations submitted by fans following the release of the GTA Online Capture Creator Update, these Creators each receive a cool GTA$1,000,000 plus an exclusive in-game CAPTURE license plate and the opportunity to join us on a future Rockstar Games live stream broadcast to play through and talk about their creation. Here are all the details on these new additions, which are now playable across both platforms and easily accessible from any GTA Online session:

Contend: Corrupt Cops - Created by JuzSlayin
Competing Police divisions race across the banks of Procopio Beach in Paleto Bay to take on a large gang of knife-wielding Ballas and confiscate their goods as "evidence". The fun you'll have launching vehicles off ramps to crash down on to the unsuspecting heads of these purple-clad gangbangers cannot be understated, but make sure you don't stop to take in the scenery when you're collecting the bags - the Ballas numbers are high and they certainly know how to close the distance between the end of their blades and the center of a corrupt officer's ribcage. 

GTA: That’s My Rhino - Created by RikkiVercetti
Here, two groups of pilots in a flock of P-996 Lazers square off over The Alamo Sea in hot pursuit of a single Rhino Tank. Whether you are flying in from Grapeseed in the north or the Grand Senora Desert in the south, you'll want to be mindful of the armed ground level mercs guarding the tank that won't take too kindly to your incursion. The Creator of this Capture, RikkiVercetti is a member of the Creator’s Core Club Crew and has created a total of 37 Jobs so far.

GTA: Payback Time - Created by MaximilianR18
"Just grab a bike and pedal! Even you ain't forgotten that." - BMXs will take you into the Vespucci Canals, but hopefully one of the prized vehicles will take you back out. With each squad aiming for different vehicles, the central head-to-head bloodbath that often occurs in GTA Captures will be minimized, but tough AI characters guarding the waterways will still give you ample opportunity for some trigger time, along with any confrontations with the opposition as you come back across the bridges with your bounty.

Contend: Adventure Team - Created by Organlegger
This epic relay to the top of Mt. Chiliad gives you a large variety of vehicle options to choose from, and once you get there, you're given a parachute to make your way back down to the Capture point. Savvy players might want to pair up in the Maverick heli to make those return trips a bit easier, but in the end a freefall leap of faith from the cliff side is still likely to be the fastest way down.

 

Please note that in addition to occasionally changing Job names due to taste, copyright or other reasons - we also from time to time will make other small edits to players' Jobs before making them Rockstar Verified. This includes, but is not limited to modifying spawn points, improving checkpoints or increasing/decreasing the amount of weapon picks ups for a particular Job. Once Jobs are Rockstar Verified, they become available for play across both platforms, so whether you're on Xbox 360 or PS3, you'll have all these newly Verified creations available in your next Freemode session (you can also bookmark them at the Social Club for easy access in your next session).
 
Go ahead and post your Job below in the comments (only once, please don't spam) with a punchy explanation of why it's worth checking out. We're always looking for new player-created Jobs to add to the Rockstar Verified program and the best way to get noticed is to have a solid Race, Deathmatch or Capture that's been thoroughly tested by the community and refined into the most fun and fair experience it can be.

GTA Fan Vids: GTAV "Hyper Timelapse", NO "There's a Glow" Music Vid, "The BMX Flow" Stunts & More

Posted on April 15 2014, 3:46pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under:

In this week's round of fantastic GTAV-based video creations, we see a talented multimedia artist from Quebec and a Los Angeles-based rock band using the virtual landscape of Los Santos to go on location and create some inspired creative works. We also have a video tour of an amazing recreation of the De Santa residence, constructed block by block in Minecraft – and a tried and true group of world class stunters combining their powers to create quite a public spectacle over the aerial landmarks of LS...

 

A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE

HYPER TIMELAPSE GTAV ( CROSSROAD OF REALITIES ) from Benoit Paillé

Canadian artist Benoit Paillé has been making some noise for his stunning digital installation juxtaposing in-game GTAV scenery with still-life photographic elements entitled “Crossroad of Realities”.

The video above, “Hyper Timelapse GTAV”, is part of that collection and is a really unique and artful take on the in-game time-lapse concept set to a frenetic jazzy score perfectly capturing the hustle and bustle of Los Santos as well as Blaine County.

ORIGINAL MUSIC VIDEO SHOT (ALMOST) ENTIRELY IN GTA ONLINE

NO | There's A Glow by Machinima

The L.A. band NO has shot their latest official music video for the track “There’s a Glow” ‘on location’ on the streets of Los Santos using a taste of the limitless action of GTA Online to melodramatic effect. Reminiscent of both the GTAIV Xbox 360 trailer of Niko Bellic's walk through Liberty City, and classic live-action music videos like Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony" and Xzibit's "What You See Is What You Get", a GTA Online version of lead singer Bradley Hanan Carter makes his way through the city streets seemingly disaffected by aggressive fellow pedestricans, chaotic explosions, gunfire, near misses with curb-checking emergency vehicles and helicopters crashing down all around him. The video concept itself was put together by director/editor Johnny Agnew, produced by Leighton Dyer and has a humorous twist of an ending, so definitely stick around for the final bit.

STATE OF THE UNION

GTA 5 Stunt Montage | Nomad Union - V by RedKeyMon

Recently featured on Kotaku, the gtastunting.net boys of Nomad Union are back with their Vth installment, starring some familiar faces from the stunting scene like BenBuja, DarkStar, Daffy, KillaMarci, MxZz, Rainbow, Slayer, TaZ and Turtle Dick, who kicks things off near the start with a seriously vert backflip onto a power-line that's later followed up by an awe-inspiring launch to a lighthouse roof. The always flashy Daffy obliges a 1-2-3 triple flip that has to be seen to be believed and Slayer sticks a perfect pinpoint landing near the Del Perro Pier Ferris Wheel. Daredevil action aficionados, dig in.

OFF THE RAILS

GTA 5 - "The BMX Flow" [Insane BMX Stunts!] by ErasableNinja

BMX bad boy ErasableNinja had caught our eye in the past for a slick and stylish stunt montage. Now, Ninja is flexing some serious shadow skills, seemingly with the corporate backing of several extreme in-game sponsors like Heat, ProLaps, Eris and Rearwall. Ninja effortlessly pulls off a number of tricky maneuvers from wall rides to 360 side flips and even introduces a rarely seen backflip into a front handlebar grind other bike trick enthusiasts may find themselves envious of.

Minecraft - Michael's House - Grand Theft Auto 5 by Keralis

Keralis and his block buddy Shiftmaster offer up a grand tour of a 'cubist' rendition of the De Santa household created by the talented digital artisan Tanriverdi in the latest iteration of their Minecraft Inspiration Series. A real treat to see - Tanriverdi's got the exterior AND interior nailed including the bedrooms, the tennis court, pool and even the garage stocked an appropriately blocky version of Michael’s Obey Tailgater.
