It’s October 27th people, which means that the trophy patch for Grand Theft Auto IV is out. Trophies are not retroactive, but I don’t think anyone expected them to be really. As I said last night i’ll be playing the game again for the retrospective piece on GTA and Saints Row 2.

It’s got a good range of trophies in here so you should easily pick up some easy ones.

GTA IV has been announced to be getting trophies and although we have had the list for a few weeks a date has aluded us thus far. Rockstar have today announced that come October 27th ardent GTA fans will be able to start the game all over again and get those trophies.

I might start it again at some point, but there’s too much coming out to really focus on a game like GTA for the second time. I’m still yet to finish it, maybe I should just give up.

What Games Do You Game? by Anthony Barlow

Yeah it’s late but it’s here ‘WGDYG?’ has arrived for this week!

  • Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – Not played this for about 6 months but it’s still amazing! It’s gotta be the best FPS in the market and should be for quite a while. Sniping is great and with the new map pack it just gets even better.
  • Grand Theft Auto IV – This has got to be the PS3’s best game right now. I’m probably creeping up on 60 hours and have still not finished this game. It’s not because i’m crap or I don’t want to (I want to finish before MGS4) it’s just because it’s so big a game that I don’t wanna rush it. I probably will have it finished before MGS4 (If I try and burn through it) if not I’ll finish it during the summer drought.
  • Rock Band – It seems that I can’t not play this game it’s so damn good! It has made it’s way across the pond now but only on the 360. How anyone can’t like this game is beyond me. The content keeps comin’ and adds to a truly amazing game.

Well that’s it for this week. Please leave your comments at the bottom.

It’s Alive! It’s Alive! by Anthony Barlow

Yeah I got my supposedly ‘refurbished’ PS3 from Sony yesterday and not only that my two copies of GTA IV turned up too. Double Whoot! It’s been a bore without a PS3 for a few days but now it’s back normal service is resumed.

Got home early yesterday only to be met with Sony’s last firmware update (2.30) waiting for me. Not good. Anyway, after the good hour long wait I set up my PSN accounts again and started the downloads of all my games and add-on’s again. I thought about waiting, for about three seconds, and then jumped on GTA IV and Skype.

The game is absolutely sweet definitely in my top two games list (number one being Metal Gear Solid on the PSone). Only had a few hours on it but it’s definitely living up to the hype. If I can actually stop playing it I might post some impressions, but I wouldn’t expect a review any time soon. What I will tell you is that the Special Edition of GTA is well worth it.

Got more stuff to download tonight (All my U.S. PS Store content). But i’ll get that done in the background whilst i’m playing GTA.

GTA Preparation by Anthony Barlow

I saw this on Kotaku before and thought it would be fun to post here. I know it’s almost stealing their subject but I thought that asking my 1’s of readers how they will be preparing for Grand Theft Auto IV. I’m gonna give you the plan I use for almost every big game release, especially online focused ones but GTA should almost achieve the same thing if not more.

It’s like this:

  • Buy a ton of energy drinks – Yeah i’ve got the mini fridge going and it’s usually stocked with cans of whatever I can pick up cheap. Kick is my drink of choice at the minute as it’s 24p a can which is great and better than spending £1+ on a can of Red Bull.
  • Stock up on snacks – Not leaving the experience for as long as possible is key when getting truly engrossed in a game so quick snacks are a must. I’d usually go with something light like crisps as they’re nice, quick to eat and don’t take up to much space.
  • Cancel All Commitments – Even the blog will have to take a hike for a few days after GTA comes out. Why do you think i’m revising now for my exams at the end of May? So i’ve got more GTA time!

What are your plans for the impending release of GTA. Of course reading the blog has to be one of them!
