Has GTA IV influenced you to commit crimes?

Nope, it's just a game.
Only petty crimes.
Stealing has become a hobby.
Yes, can't say more, cops are coming.

Social Club: Friends and Message Wall Now Available

Posted by adamcs at 21:37. Category: General
Friends and Message Wall

Two new features are available on the Rockstar Games Social Club - Friends List and Message Wall.

The Friend System allows each Social Club member to create a custom Friends list based on either:

  • Friends lists taken directly from platforms you have linked to the Social Club.
  • Your specific Social Club nicknames and/or console identifiers (like a Gamertag).

Once you have created a Friends List you can begin using the Message Wall. The Message Wall is a unique verbal and visual means of mouthing off to your Friends – including a direct message system and customizable personal graffiti wall. Communicate, talk trash with your Friends, and decorate and/or desecrate each other’s Walls at will. More additions will be made to the Friends System and Message Wall in future.

TLAD PC Trailer Rumours

Posted by uNi at 16:45. Category: General

Rumours have been posted on our forums about the USK (German) ratings for The Lost and Damned, leading to speculation over possible new platform (PC) support for the game. We went ahead and contacted Rockstar regarding the matter, and it all turns out to be a big misunderstanding.

In a nutshell: All trailers submitted to USK are listed as "PC", regardless of what platform the product is actually released on. If the trailer itself is set for playback on PC, it's marked as PC. Simple as that.

Nevertheless, feel free to discuss the rumours on our forums.

(Editor's Note from Andy: This post was tweaked to clarify a few details. We offer our apologies to the rabid PC gaming masses for any confusion that we've caused.)
