Stunning Snapmatics Captured on PlayStation 4 & Xbox One

Posted 6 days, 5 hours ago | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Games

With the launch of GTAV on Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the vast Snapmatic Community of enthusiastic shutterbugs have wasted no time capturing marvelous and prodigious fresh perspectives throughout Los Santos and Blaine County. Here are a few featured shots that caught our eye these last couple days.

 

The glow of headlights captured in Burton by oAgro_ of the well-known GTAPhotographers Crew.

After a hot day in the Grand Senora Desert, NSE_109 bellies up to the bar for a couple of cold Pißwassers.

This spruced up Bravado Rat-Loader looks like it was inexplicably put off to pasture. Captured by 1HARV3Y

The Los Santos skyline positively glows in this evening shot from ProVelvet

A stunning Vapid Hotknife captured in East Vinewood by Top_Noch_Bazzil.

This scenic shot in the Tataviam Mountains was taken by -kXh87- of the up and coming Snapmatic Art Crew.

An up-close look at wildflowers from skyline_ger.

Resting near Mirror Park, this gangsta green Declasse Tornado looks a long way off from The Grove. Taken by colognemitch

From dusk till dawn, this untamed part of the Pacific Bluffs beach along Highway 1 looks quite serene. Taken by Silver Heathen

Taken by colognemitch who seems to have an on-going love affair with the Declasse Tornado.

This one taken by ProVelvet on the Great Ocean Highway has a particularly understated, eerie quality that we enjoy.

aleexzyta captured this adorable striped tomcat in blissful repose.

Prolific Snapmatic photographer HairyHole makes this Declasse Vigero look clean and mean.

Is she posing a question or dimissing one? Hard to say but a great shot by Daisy_Dukes_USA, regardless.

ProVelvet left their Benefactor Glendale out to play in the rain.

Looks like Chop may be out for a bit. Taken by BLRock

Some people keep their vicious dogs locked up behind a chain-lnk fence. In our second featured shot by HairyHole, the same applies to this suped-up Albany Buccaneer.

Insert obligatory "deer crossing" joke for this one from Arioza.

Post-Apocalypse now! This fierce looking Imponte Duke O'Death captured by Debra_Morgan137 will make the sturdiest of road warriors shudder.  

We get the feeling that running into this nasty character during the daily LS commute would be no laughing matter. Taken by Sophronia

We'll certainly be keeping an eye out for the best and the brightest.

Rockstar Game Tips: Playing with Perspective in GTAV

Posted 1 week ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

On top of the pulse-pounding thrills that the new First Person Mode offers at the touch of a button, there's also a wealth of control options to fine tune your overall Grand Theft Auto V playing experience, no matter what your preferred perspective. Here is a look at some of the available options and some tips to help customize and optimize your personal control setup.

If you like the First Person controls while on foot, but prefer the Third Person view when in vehicles, you can set up the control scheme to automatically switch between these two perspectives - you just need to make sure the option to Allow Independent Camera Modes in the Settings > Display menu is set to On. This also works for the inverse, if you fancy the behind-the-wheel perspective when driving but enjoy Third Person more for running and gunning, you can set it up that way as well.

Along with fully customizable Aiming and Look Sensitivity in both First and Third Person, you can also adjust many individual elements to really refine the experience. Turning off First Person Ragdoll will decrease the amount of camera motion experienced when you are hit. Toggling off First Person Combat Rolls and/or Head Bobbing will also minimize some of the more intense First Person motion effects. And to take full advantage of GTAV's Third Person cover system while in First Person Mode, just switch the First Person Third Person Cover option found in Settings > Controls to On.


You can adjust a wealth of different First Person Mode aspects in the Settings menu.

If you're playing a Race or a Parachute Jump with the First Person perspective in GTA Online, try pressing Circle (PS4) / B (Xbox One) to get a Third Person peek - very handy when dealing with a multi-car pile up or when attempting to locate a Checkpoint that may be off screen. Don't rely on this when driving in Freemode though, as it will switch you to Cinematic Camera.

Whichever perspective you choose, there are now four targeting options available in each one:

  • Assisted Aim – Full: Lock-on targeting with a wide lock angle that allows for target switching (Sticky Aim in First Person only).
  • Assisted Aim – Partial: Lock-on targeting with a medium lock angle. The reticule slows down whenever it passes over a target (Sticky Aim in First Person only).
  • Free Aim – Assisted: Snap-lock targeting with a narrower lock-on angle (Sticky Aim in First Person only).
  • Free Aim: For the hardcore, no lock-on whatsoever.

Do you have a great tip to share or a topic you'd like to see us cover in a future tips post? Drop us a line to let us know, and we may feature it in the next installment of Rockstar Game Tips.

Posted 2 weeks, 1 day ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

As we gear up to usher an entire new population into Los Santos and Blaine County with the release of Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4 and Xbox One next week – we just wanted to say thank you to the awesome and dedicated players that have made GTA Online such a nonstop thrill over the past year on PS3 and Xbox 360 so far. We may have provided the world and the tools, but it’s really you players who have made the Online world as amazing as it has become.

We’ll have some details on that very soon as well.
