Christmas gifts in GTA Online include being robbed by The Gooch

Hearing that? Christmas bells are ringing, carolers are singing, and a Grinch parody with an awful name is attacking GTA Online users. He is one of several holiday goodies that are currently available on the streets of Los Santos, which also feature snowmen that must be destroyed, rooftop shootouts, and, strangely enough, superpowered animals being pursued by serial killers.

Christmas does seem like a wonderful time of year to drop in, and Alice O lists the seasonal events in GTA Online as some of her favorites. There are several ways to make additional money while everything is coated in snow and decorated with decorations.

While you’re walking the streets, the Gooch might attack you. If you can repel him, you’ll get some money and a mask to wear. By focusing on sleighbell noises, you can track down snowmen, whom you can kill all 25 of to get $125,000 and a Snowman Outfit. You can participate in a gunfight on the Weazel Plaza rooftop that is modeled by the movie Die Hard to receive a new gun, a Christmas skin for a different gun, and $25,000 by doing so.

The (returning) Monsters vs. Slashers event has me the most confused since three-person teams of invisibly strong beasts have to jump through checkpoints before being eliminated by three-person teams of Slashers with rocket launchers and thermal vision. Somehow, it has a holiday vibe.

The holiday fun comes to an end on December 28. More information is available on Rockstar’s event page.

GTA 5 is on sale for £13/$22/€22 on Steam and the Epic Games Store, which includes access to GTA Online.

Alice B believed she had the final word on RPS before Christmas, but she was mistaken since I was still hiding in the treehouse’s shadowy “American news hours” area. Right now, Gooch has the final say on RPS. Sorry.

PAYDAY 3 Developer Announces D&D Live Service Multiplayer

The Starbreeze cooperative multiplayer game Project Baxter is expected to follow PAYDAY. The official Dungeons & Dragons logo is on Starbreeze. However, we do not expect the studio to revere RPG settings like Larian did with Baldur’s Gate 3.

Starbreeze will develop and publish Project Baxter in 2026 for all major platforms. The company says it “will carry the signature Starbreeze game cornerstones of cooperative multiplayer, lifetime commitment through a Games as a Service model, community engagement, and a larger than life experience.”

Forgive the skepticism, but PAYDAY 3, Starbreeze’s latest release, lagged behind due to server issues that the CEO had to apologize for, taking two months to release the heist shooter’s first patch. It’s a disappointing story that may have gone unnoticed in a year with The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, Kong: Rise of Skull Island, and The Walking Dead: Destinies.

Would you like a Starbreeze multiplayer live service D&D game? Is this to capitalize on the setting’s moment between Baldur’s Gate and the surprising good Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves?

Free Soccer Simulator Finally More Single Player on eFootball, But Not Like League

Konami promised that free-to-play soccer sim eFootball would add PES’ massively popular Master League mode, but while this month’s v3.20 update will add more solo content, you’ll have to wait. My League lets you play full seasons as a single player with changing weather and exclusive rewards to reduce the wait.

You’ll replace a real team from your league, like England or Italy. The gacha system unlocks players that you’ll use to fight the AI and win the table. Play through the mode as many times as you want, with custom cutscenes and other features to track your progress. It all seems like a way to make dream team gameplay appealing to offline players.

Online play is also getting better. A new tier system will match you with players of similar skill levels, and co-op will soon let you join strangers instead of friends. You can use emojis to discuss your matches’ successes and failures or strategize with new allies.

We assume new cards with perks will allow Konami to create “rarer” versions of players when they perform certain real-life feats. A new login feature will include a penalty-taking minigame where you must score a goal to climb a ladder and unlock in-game rewards like virtual currency. For now, that’s it.

The critically panned game improves, but not as fast as former PES fans would like. The gameplay is good, and there are more things to do, but without that meaty single-player mode, old-school franchise fans will always rank it lower. Konami should revive one of the best solo sports game modes soon.

We expected it to be big, but this big? Only ten hours after Rockstar unceremoniously released GTA 6’s trailer after an unexpected leak, it has over 50 million views. This video is the top trending video on YouTube worldwide, ignoring mirrors from IGN and Gamespot.

Instead of waiting until later today, the developer released the first footage of the latest Grand Theft Auto after a watermarked version leaked on Twitter. The team is understandably upset, but the video’s overwhelming response will reassure it. It has 50 million views and 6.5 million likes.

This could reach 100 million by the end of the day as it’s shared worldwide and fans search for Easter eggs and secrets. How many times have you seen the new trailer?
