So many of us are now extremely accustomed to the world, or rather, worlds, that the massive success which is the Grand Theft Auto brings to our screens. Burglary, murder, reckless driving, mass shootings and other mischief is all but common to those that play any of the GTA titles. Let us also not forget the latest installment, GTA V’s immense $1bn earnings in three days from its launch back in 2013, making it the fastest-selling entertainment title ever.

While there will always be those who will blindly accuse violent video games to be the root cause of real-life violence and the trigger of homicide in the real world, we, as gamers, know better and can stand against such accusations with our honor unspoiled. There are even those that claim pertaining in violence in a virtual environment soothes the mind and will actually help quell someone’s urge to do such atrocities outside the virtual environment – which is a good thing.

Now, the fine gents over at BBC TWO wish to present us a “factual drama” of how GTA’s mastermind, Sam Houser, came up with the idea and how he had to stand behind his game and company as others would seek to its fall.

On September 15, “The Gamechangers” will try to showcase the struggle that Sam Houser (portrayed by Daniel Radcliffe, which you may know from his famous role as Harry Potter) faces when Jack Thompson (played by Bill Paxton), a Christian lawyer, gives his best to bring down those that came up with the GTA franchise.

BBC claims that this movie was “not authorized” by the game producers and it will be based on “court documents and interviews” of the people involved in the numerous scandals and law suits.

As previously said, we may know the cities in the GTA titles as we know the palm of our hands, as well as the stories of those characters, but some of us may not be familiar with the struggles of those that sought to bring them to our small screens.

Let us see if this one and a half hour drama will teach us more, all the while enjoying Dan-the-Rad’s artistic wand waiving.

Daniel John Coste has a passion for many great things like movies, fiction writing, video games and travel. He also gets easily excited by anything regarding tech innovation and space exploration. He aspires to become a world renown fiction writer - coming soon.

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!

After a long wait, it appears that the search for a capable Hollywood actor to bring the brooding Shadow the Hedgehog to life has come to an end.

Speculation has been running wild lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the casting, citing reliable sources in the know. News of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being showcased at Cinemacon has quickly spread. Reeves is sure to bring his own special touch to the role, but it’s uncertain how well he will mesh with the mustachioed Dr. Robotnik, as Jim Carrey is set to reprise the character.
