Hey guys. VaultBoy here deciding to bring to you some weekly polls. On other wikis I have seen weekly polls being set up (most notably the Fallout Wiki) so I thought that they could be a good feature to have on this wiki. Polls will appear every Monday so just look on the News section on the Main Page and soon on the news blogs that will start to come around. Thank you and enjoy the first polls!

Well, today has been an irritating day for many gamers as although the longly anticipated game GTA Online has finally been released, it seems it can't hold all of us. Players get messages such as Rockstar Cloud Storage cannot load, the blue icon on the race doesn't load and more. A commentor on IGN believes that it will be fixed by 12:00 Eastern Time but who knows.Read more >

Hey guys. I'd just like to say, well done to everyone at the wiki, as we've finally reached 1000 active users! Of course, the staff here have done an amazing job, but other non-staff users have also helped make this wiki what it is. I think we should have some sort of celebration but unfortunatly we can't get everyone in a place at the same time. Here is a list of users that I think lately have done a great job.
- The guy with many names
- Mr. T
- The Smasher
- The Ghost
I'll probably add more soon.Read more >
September 17 has passed and Take Two finally reveals the results of Grand Theft Auto V's launch, and Rockstar can be very proud.
According to IGN, Grand Theft Auto V made $8oo million in day one, thus becoming the biggest entertainment launch of all time, almost twice the amount of money made by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
It should be noted that GTAV is yet to launch in Japan or Brazil, so expect this number to grow even bigger. On another note, one analyst said he thinks V will make $1 billion by the end of September - I guess he was right.
GTA V grossed $1 billion in three days, breaking the record set by Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (the same amount of money in 15 days).Read more >
So, guys, after a couple of days,all reviewers voiced their opnion on, and gave scores to, GTA V (well, at least the reviewers I give a fuck to).
GTA V currently holds a score of 97-98 on MetaCritic (previously 99, thanks again, Escapist), and 96+ on GameRankings.

Just wanted to give you a heads up that we here at Wikia Gaming will be livestreaming GTA V on our Ustream page tomorrow (September 18th) at 11AM PST.
Note that this livestream will be as spoiler free as possible. We won't be doing any plot or side missions, and will instead be cruising around Los Santos, seeing the sights and probably running over a pedestrian or ten. We're also taking requests from the viewers in the chat, so join us on the stream and let us know what you want to see.
See you tomorrow!Read more >
The day has come and first reviews are arrving to tell one thing: GTA V is probably the greatest game in history.
- IGN's Keza gave the game a 10, saying "No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem."
- Edge is very pleased with another 10, saying "No one makes worlds like Rockstar, but at last it has produced one without compromise. Everything works. It has mechanics good enough to anchor games of their own, and a story that is not only what GTA has always wanted to tell but also fits the way people have always played it. It’s a remarkable achievement, a peerless marriage of world design, storytelling and mechanics that pushes these ageing consoles to the limit and makes it all look easy."
- PS official magazine also gave 10, and so does the Xbox magazine.
- PlayStation LifeStyle, another 10.
- VideoGamer also gave 10, saying "Unless you play it for yourself, it's near impossible to grasp how big GT…

It's less than a week to the D-day, the day when we'll finally be able to play the "next big thing" in gaming, GTA V. The fansite Rockstar Nexus has added some leak photos, with the premission of the Brady games strategy guide of the game map.
It's estimated this map has around 22 safehouses around the map. And if you think this map is tiny in any way, here is another pic
This is a calculation by a person by the username of Yosik on Reddit. He estimated that map will be bigger than the map of GTA San Andreas, GTA IV, and Red Dead Redemption together, with still room to spare. And last, but not least, the Xbox cover (or at least that's Rockstar Nexus thinks it is) of the new game.
Rockstar Nexus says that this looks like the back cover of the box for Xbox games, but since this photo was taken/made before the actual release of the game, the legitimacy can't be confirmed.

It seems the Rockstar Games has hired real Gangsters and criminals to do voice acting for the upcoming GTA V.This information is reaveled when GTA's DJ,Lazlow Jones spoke on Chicago's WGN Radio Station,saying
"We get these guys in to record gang characters because we don't want a goofy LA actor who went to fancy school trying hard to be a gang member.There's nothing worse than that,so just go find the real terrifying people and say can you come in here please?"
"El Salvadorian gang dudes with amazing tattoos,one which has literally had gotten out of prison the day before"
"I wouldn't say that,so we say, OK,say what you will say.Authemticity you know?
Rockstar sent someone to find a few gang members.One thing about normal voice actors in the prevoius GTA games(San Andreas is a good example where it has alot of gangsters)is they use normal voice actors to do the gangster styled voice.Most of the times,it is scripted and does not sound really realistic.With gang members doing voice acting …Read more >
We all knew that GTA V will be the next big game, but who knew it would cost so much?
According to the Scottish media outlet, The Scotsmen, some of the creative heads of GTA V stated that Rockstar had spent roughly 170 million pounds ($265 million USD) to develop, produce and market Grand Theft Auto V with a staff of over 300 designers, artists, programmers, mappers and modelers. "That's about equivalent to a moderately budgeted Hollywood blockbuster", claims Gaming Blend author, William Usher.
Despite having the most bloated budget in video game history, Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games are confident that it will sell like crazy. GTA V has been poised by analysts that it will surpass sales of Call of Duty: Ghosts, and according to the Scotsman article, Rockstar isn't too worried about costs since the newest game in the GTA series is poised to make $1 billion before the year is out, with an estimate of more than 25 million SKUs to be shipped to retailers around the world.

This is not a secret that Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most hyped and anticipated games of this generation. A game which is set to break records and define the meaning of "gaming". (Yeah, suck it, Call of Duty!) *No offence intended, well maybe just a little...*
Hideo Kojima is the legendary game developer who introduced the world to his epic stealth-action Metal Gear games (who defined the "stealth", as well as making one of the most interesting plots in the history of gaming. To get a compliment from this person is a one-of-kind achievement that any developer in would like to get, and apparently our beloved Rockstar Games received that kind of award.
However, Kojima seems to be "depressed" (in his word) due to this. If you guys don't know, Kojima is currently working on the next chapter of Metal Gear: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which is set to show a "new breed of stealth" gameplay.

Hey Wikiers, I want to tell you something that may predict the GTA V gameplay. My dreams.
Most of you are saying, "Who cares, we all have dreams about it." But this is something that has boggled my mind when the last GTAV dream was a month ago.
Between the months of Februray and May, I had a total of five dreams about the gameplay. Some seemed very legit, to the point that I thought I had the game; it seemed so realistc.
Here are my five dreams that I will be describing:
- The first dream occured in February. Michael and Franklin were stealing a few cars and selling them to a car dealer to get Franklin a few extra money to buy advanced weaponry. The dream advanced to a gun fight down at a beachside resort.
- The second dream occured in March. This one was quite peculiar and there is not much to tell. The loading screen for GTA V included some artwork previously released and some which I did not see before. One of them was the "Pest Control' artwork and the unseen one showed GSF members shooting…
I don't have time to overview this, so I'll leave you to read this article: http://www.gtav.net/news/4535/epsilon-prepare-to-be-amazed

Hi guys. I got an idea from the Red Dead Wiki a while back, so I asked Dan if we could go forward with it and we can! So, you know how the Red Dead Wiki has a posse feature, we could have a crew feature for when GTA V comes out, where users can design a page about their crew. It will take a while to set up, so, I'm gonna need all the help I can get, especially from you Ilan; I know you're some sort of Admin on that Wiki so you should hopefully know about the posse feature.Read more >

Hey, Wikiers! I am proud to announce that a Crew for GTA Wiki has been set up on Rockstar Games Social Club
The crew name will be called GTA Wikia Crew. When GTA V comes out, we can use the crew to battle other crews and be recognized. Not only that, with GTA Wikia being the name of the crew, we are actually promoting the crew and if any social club member would like to join, they will go on GTA Wiki and edit here or do something here. In a way, we are trying to get more activity for this wiki since one or two edits are made every hour.
Despite creating this crew for GTA Wiki, I will not be using it until the release of GTA V. There is no usage of it anyhow for now, but if any of you Wikiers have Social Club accounts and want to join right away, please state your Wikia name when I accept your Application Request. Later on until GTA V, any SC user that wants to join my clan, they shall.
I had set up a Ranking System for GTA Wikia Crew. They are based on Wikia's Staff Ranks. Although, I'm …

Hello! Hello! Have a seat. Want some tea? No? Well good! This is IMPORTANT!
According to Auto-oMobile, they have scooped up a rumour (thank god it's not true...yet) about Microsoft wanting to have a delay on Grand Theft Auto V for some unknown reasons. Microsoft's report states this by Auto-oMobile:
"What is interesting though is that Microsoft states the deal is only in limited supply so you should order quick. However in the terms and conditions, they put the GTA 5 pre-order window as ending on December 31st 2013...
So the obvious question is how does the offer end on Dec. 31, 2013 if GTA 5 is due out on September 17, and you're supposed to pre-order? Is there the possibility that the GTA 5 release date is being pushed back to the Christmas holidays? And if so does this apply to the Xbox 360 version only?
...Of course all these are just rumors at the moment and forum goers are still trying to figure out what it means."
Also, if Xbox owners pre-order GTA V during the alleged "delay period…Read more >
