GTAist.com is back up

In GTAist by dave

Welcome back to GTAist.com. First off, thank you Rockstar for the mention in your newswire about our real life Grand Theft Auto photo series. As great as it felt seeing GTAist on there, it felt equally horrible seeing an error message and email from our hosting provider (who shall not be named) about how I jammed up their servers.  We’re currently in the process of finding premium hosting so GTAist never goes down again. Second, thank you to the GTAist community for your support, comments, criticisms and likes. It’s all of  you guys that encourage me to make this the …

Grand Theft Auto is ready for a returning character

In GTA VI, GTA VI Ideas by dave0 Comments

If there’s one thing that the constant barrage of BuzzFeed articles about nostalgia, current remakes of 80s movies, or the forum comments across various Grand Theft Auto websites tell me, it’s that fans want to revisit the lives of previous GTA protagonists. Last we saw, Tommy overtook the Vice City crime world in the 80s, CJ finally cleared his name in the 90s, and Claude killed his former girlfriend in the early 2000s. Niko and the other GTA IV characters are still fresh in people’s memories, and the GTA V trio are still in their glory with more storyline content …

Community Spotlight: LS Confidential

In Community Spotlight, GTAist by dave0 Comments

In light of GTAist’s recent post comparing Los Santos to real life, a number of comments have criticized both the real life photos taken (yeah, my fault) and the in-game Grand Theft Auto V screenshots. While I can’t vouch for my photography, I can vouch for just how amazing Grand Theft Auto V looks when you’re actually experiencing it. I was fortunate enough to get in contact with an aspiring GTA photographer Jeremy Leon, who knows both photography and composition, and looking at his work… well, see for yourself. Be sure to visit his website to see more of his work …

In GTA V, GTA V Fan Art by dave0 Comments

If you’ve completed Grand Theft Auto V to 100%, chances are you’re also the type of person who saw the hilarious in-game movies and TV shows that Rockstar managed to fit in (if you haven’t, shame on you… Check them out in the videos below). These little details only reinforce how much effort has been put in to truly making San Andreas come to life. Not shy on picking on Rockstar’s ideas and building on them, GTAist has created a series of realistic takes on movies within the Grand Theft Auto realm. Below are posters based on these ideas. (Be …
