GTA 5 With Alternate Protagonists?

One of the main features that set GTA 5 apart from the previous installments of the series was the chance to switch between three distinct protagonists during the Story. While the main story quests were locked in terms of which character you had to control most of the time, whenever you were out and about, you could simply switch between Michael, Trevor and Franklin.

characters

Each had their set of special events and side-quests which were unique to them. Trevor had his rampages and hunting, for instance. The trio have been praised universally, by critics and fans alike as a varied and engaging group of anti-heroes – though it has been often said that not one of them is likable. Trevor especially is something of a psychopathic loon with particularly revolting behavioral patterns.

These three have become synonymous with GTA 5. They’re pretty much the first thing people think of when the name of the game is mentioned. But is a GTA 5 without them really that hard to imagine? What if they were present, but took the back seat? Who would have the heroes of this story been in their stead?

chars

This question is often discussed by fans in wishful “what if” scenarios. Some wish that they could have taken the helm of another character introduced by the latest game. Others would have gladly seen the return of a beloved classic hero from another GTA game, or a well known character who wasn’t playable back when.

Lamar Davis

Lamar is the best friend of Franklin Clinton, one of the actual protagonists of the game. While Franklin is serious, grounded, skilled and thoughtful, Lamar is his comic-relief opposite. Lamar is a silly, short-sighted brash character who somehow always manages to get himself – and others – into tight situations.

lamar

He needs rescuing more than once throughout the story, usually due to his most recent “get rich quick” schemes. He often contradicts himself, such as when he outspokenly opposes the on-going war between the Families and the Ballas. Soon after, he kidnaps a member of the Ballas, causing the relative calm between the gangs to escalate once more.

Lamar returns as a main character in GTA Online, being the one to greet the player character at LSIA. He later becomes a prominent contact added in the Lowriders update. Many fans have expressed a desire to have story DLC focusing on him, allowing players to control his actions.

Dave Norton

If Lamar acts as Franklin’s stand-in, Dave would be Michael’s. In the story, Dave is a corrupt “but in a good way” FIB agent who makes a deal with Michael at the beginning of the story. He ends up being a valuable ally during the story.

The prospect of playing a corrupt cop who is ever bit the criminal as any other GTA protagonist has excited players for quite some time. While for straight-faced police gameplay, PC players have LSPDFR, no opportunity to play as a corrupt cop in a GTA game has ever arisen.

Wade Hebert

Granted, Wade never kills anyone on-screen during the entire course of GTA 5, his association with Trevor as well as his criminal enterprise suggests that he would be readily capable. While considered to have a child-like mind and to be generally dim-witted, Wade is extremely resourceful. Something of an urban tracker, he has become adept at finding people in Los Santos and the surrounding areas with ease.

Players haven’t yet been put into the boots of characters considered to be “simple”, however as this doesn’t affect gameplay, it would be interesting to view a world rife with violence and crime.

GTA Online Cars Come To Single Player Without Mod

You better get on to this GTA Online glitch before it’s patched right up.

GTA Online has been getting an endless stream of free content updates over the years, expanding the list of available vehicles extensively. The single player mode, however, was stuck with the same number of rides as it had on launch, which stuck out as odd for quite a few players.

On PC, the modding community swiftly began porting Online only DLC vehicles over to story mode with some success, however the console players were still out of luck.

Until now. The GTA V community is on a never-ending search for glitches which may be exploited to the player’s advantage. These aren’t mods, cheats or hacks, these are bugs or mechanical loopholes which players can use to circumvent the game’s own rules.

A particular glitch which allows players to warp Online vehicles into single player has recently been found and it works on consoles as well. You’ll need to have unlocked Trevor in single player and have access to his garage in Sandy Shores, preferably empty.

This is as easy as glitches get. Load into a private or invite-only lobby in GTA Online, drive your vehicle of choice into the Sandy Shores garage, switch to single player picking Trevor and voila, the ride is there.

trevorgarage2

Initially, it will be locked. Just cause some minor damage to the car, leave the are and go back. Not only will the car be repaired, it will also be unlocked.

This glitch has been confirmed on PC, Xbox One and PS4 by various users. Players on Xbox 360 have yet to succeed and there is no word on testing result from the PS3, meaning that is might not work on last-gen.

GTA V Meets Captain America: Civil War

It seems that the new direction Merfish has taken his humorous GTA V fan videos is working well for him. Until now Merfish, eldritch abomination and lord of darkness, has specialized in using the Rockstar Editor and various mods to recreate the opening sequences for popular children’s shows – and defiling them in the process. The trademarks of Merfish are violence, turds and dildos, so you can more or less imagine the kinds of mind-numbing horrors he has brought upon this world. Most recently he’s taken a liking to the trailers of AAA superhero blockbusters.

While not an actual Avengers title, the next installment in Captain America’s personal series is bringing the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe on board, not to mention adding some never before seen characters too. Iron Man’s fight with Cap might be the biggest focus but the large scale hoe-down between the best known faces of Marvel is plenty to be excited about.

With the SuperBowl, that marketing fair masquerading as some sort of sport event, not far behind us the new trailers are still fresh in everyone’s minds. Merfish took his chance and remade the first Civil War trailer in GTA V.

All the typical Merfish-isms are present here. Captain America’s shield is made up of turds, Falcon’s wings are made of dildos and everyone is constantly wanking. Considering the original trailer is full of punching, shooting, exploding and more punching, citing violence doesn’t do much here – which is why Merfish focused on his other assets.

GTA V’s Michael makes a surprisingly good Tony Stark but that’s where the genuine similarities end. All the rest of the characters are complete misfits. Cap is Trevor, a Canadian, Black Widow is an elderly lady and Franklin really doesn’t fit Falcon’s strong facial features. Granted, this is Merfish so these are entirely on purpose.

No, Ned Luke Didn’t Just Confirm GTA V Story DLC

We think it’s about time for GTA V players to accept that the game probably won’t be seeing any single player DLC. Ever.

Despite all the alleged leaks, despite Shawn Fonteno’s relentless attempts to troll the community, despite all the hope fans can muster, the only new content the game is getting seems to be GTA Online updates. Despite everyone knowing this deep down, every little sign that story mode DLC might be in the works is followed by a flood of tweets and shoddy YouTube videos claiming that “Story DLC has been confirmed”.

va2

The most recent cause for this craze was a tweet by Ned Luke – who incidentally denied all knowledge of GTA V Story content – featuring the three voice actors. The tweet was accompanied by hashtags such as “#BackTogether” and “#Happening #Soon” (why those two are separate is beyond me, but then I never did understand hashtags).

Of course the knee-jerk reaction of the GTA V community was mouth-foaming about how Story DLC has now been officially confirmed. In reality all this is about are those convention appearances that were planned for the three voice actors (see previous link for details). For quite a while Rockstar had been looking to get the guys out to events again and Luke recently confirmed that this is indeed happening.

Take-Two Interactive recently released their financial records which showed that Online is their biggest cash cow. While GTA V sold over 60 million copies, it was Shark Card sales for Online which generated the most revenue.

dlc2

Based on this you’d think it would be pretty obvious to steer any resources it would have spent on single player content to creating more GTA Online DLC updates.

Of course it must also be taken into account that two of the three endings of V would exclude both Trevor and Michael from future content.

Which convention do you think GTA V’s voice actors will be attending?

GTA V Meets Hey Arnold (Trevor)!

Legendary Rockstar Editor junkie and defiler of childhood memories Merfish has claimed yet another victim. After he has butchered a number of good old shows like Captain Planet, Pokemon, Arthur and The Powerpuff Girls, Merfish moved on to big Hollywood releases like Batman Vs Superman.

He’s returned to dishonoring well liked children’s shows in GTA V again with this most recent video.

Hey Arnold! was a show from before the turn of the century, beginning in 1996 and having an 8 year run with 5 seasons, 100 episodes and a feature film. The series mainly focused on the everyday lives of a small cast of characters and their mundane problems.

Merfish’s signature quips are present in full force. The characters in GTA V are a tad more realistic than the weird morphology adopted by the designers of the original show. After a few well placed dildos (this is Merfish after all) and edited outfits Arnold and crew are instantly recognizable.

screenshot_272

Trevor jumps in as the titular Arnold with Franklin being Gerald. Lester, Michael and others fill in supporting roles. Lester, obviously, is once again the punch line of many lewd jokes. The whole recreation features significantly more phallic imagery and violence than the original did.

Despite the typical Merfish type crude humor the recreation is surprisingly authentic. Unlike in previous recreation, this time Merfish didn’t go to great lengths for modding in things that could not be done with the props at hand. The inhuman hairstyles which were a staple of the series are nowhere to be seen. All Trevor gets is a lousy cap and some side burn recoloring and Franklin just uses his default hair to represent Gerald’s glorious mane.

In some aspects, this is the best work of Merfish – in others, the quality dipped a tad. The dildos are here to save it though.

Which retro cartoon do you want Merfish to GTA V-ify next?

GTA V Voice Actor To Appear On The Walking Dead

The voice of GTA V’s craziest protagonist might be making an appearance in AMC’s zombie post-apocalypse series.

Trevor Phillips, the resident psychopath of GTA V, is possibly the most popular and certainly the most controversial of the three protagonists players may control in the game. Played by Steven Ogg, Trevor is a hyper-violent Canadian socio- and psychopath, who is the least morally grey of the deadly trio – with both Franklin and Michael having some, albeit few, redeeming qualities. On the other hand, Trevor is the one character who has access to the rampage missions. That should tell you enough.

ogg3

Steven Ogg has had some roles in gaming prior to GTA V, as well as occasional one-episode character in some well known television series. However he primarily appeared in films until his popularity exploded following the release of GTA V. Now, it seems his primary role in Rockstar’s blockbuster and the critical acclaim he has gained for it has put him on the radar of big-name networks and developers.

The Walking Dead, originally a graphic novel, was adapted into a massively popular television series a few years back, which has diverged from the story told by the comics greatly since. A recent Tweet by GTA V star Steven Ogg suggests that he will be appearing on the show in upcoming episodes.


It is unknown what his role in the series may be, but if his GTA V character is anything to go on, chances are the main cast are going to encounter a particularly cruel foe. Do we have any The Walking Dead fans among us?

Petition For Next GTA City To Be Vancouver

Lets see how many GTA fans want to see the series move to Canada.

Various games in the GTA franchise have shown us a wide variety of cities in the fictionalized version of the USA depicted in the franchise. We have been introduced to the not-New-York Liberty City, the Not-Los-Angeles Los Santos, the Not-Las-Vegas Las Venturas, and many more. Most GTA games provided the player with one large city map with countless things to do and kill, with all sorts of in game events and activities which hammer home the whole satirical, social commentary message of the game.

canada

However, the GTA community has begun to theorize what other countries in this fictional universe may be like. GTA fans may have gotten a feel of this with the two expansions in the 2D era which were set in England. While dropping players off in a city in a country on the other side of the largest body of water may seem too risky for big-budget AAA development, Canada seems to be the perfect destination  – but is it?

The GTA franchise has come into contact with Canada before on multiple occasions with the fact that Trevor himself is from up north. Setting the game in a non-US city would be a first for the current universe. The GTA franchise is deeply mired in satire and political commentary, and having the game set in a nation where the people are notoriously well-mannered is peculiar at best.

Currently, the petition to move GTA VI to Vancouver, Canada is sitting at 1,909 signatories. Now, Petition.org does not mark the minimum amount of signatures needed for something to actually happen. Rather, it just marks whatever new milestone is up next. If a considerable number of positive votes were registered, then it might hold some sway with Rockstar (although to be honest they are probably already working on GTA VI and this petition is too late…).

GTA V Meets Star Wars In Epic Video

Star Wars Episode VII hype has found its way into GTA V.

This isn’t a recreation, or an adaptation, however it is clearly inspired by the space opera epic which is getting revived next month. Star Wars is a staple of all forms of entertainment, not only film. However it is on the silver screen where it excels above all. The much awaited seventh episode, The Force Awakens, arrives next month after a decade has passed since the release of the previous installment, which happened to be the third of six. Yeah, its weird. Whatever. Star Wars.

screenshot_237

This extremely well made animation features the epic showdown between Darth Maple-leaf Trevor Phillips, and Jedi Knight Michael De Santa. The whole thing is laced with typical GTA-style profanity and humor, plus the ever present violence.

Yeah, we’re talking about *additional* violence added to a duel between two space-magicians using laser swords. The force makes an appearance as well in the form of an awesome move by Trevor in the shape of the “force-flip-off” which launched a volley of lightning at Michael straight from the angry Canadian’s middle finger.

screenshot_238

The ending is certainly scores more violent than anything that is shown in any Star Wars media (a large portion of its audience is children, after all), and we’re talking about a movie series which features frequent dismemberment and third-degree burns on the whole body. However, a lightsaber to the face just seems so much more effective.

That one aspect also happens to be the only issue with the video. The work put into making the animation fluid and realistic is impressive, and it is clear that a lot of attention was put into it. Too bad the fact that the heat of the lightsaber would instantly cauterize any wound, so the massive splash of blood would never occur.

How excited are you guys for the upcoming Star Wars film?

GTA V Meets The Teletubbies

It has been quite a long while since we’ve had one of these. The one and only Merfish has awoken from his deep slumber to bring terror upon us mere mortals once more. The man, the legend, the master of the Rockstar Editor has arisen again.

For some incomprehensible reason, ever since the 1.29 update (which contained the massive Freemode Events update) brought the versatile Rockstar Editor to the current generation of consoles, we’ve gotten far less interesting GTA V videos. The only thing that really comes to mind is that one short film about the chicken and the psycho.

tele

However, Merfish has arrived to save us all from damnation. He has blessed us once again with an heirloom of his masterwork. He has taken an old children’s television show and elevated it to a whole new plane of artistry. Merfish has transplanted a piece of many childhoods into the world of GTA V.

wtf

This time on the chopping block is the Teletubbies, the odd gang of four color coded mutant somethings with functional television sets cybernetically implanted into their abdomens. They live in what looks like techno-Hobbiton, and have forced a strange biomechanical creature into their servitude who works as a living vacuum cleaner. They also offer tribute to the sun god, whose terrifying visage observes the creatures every single day.

Merfish has perfectly captured the atmosphere and feel of the teletubbies television series, adding the required dose of good old extra violence in order to make it all feel that much more like GTA V. Merfish had to resort to the use of mods to turn Michael, Trevor, Franklin and Lamar into the four demonic creatures, and his infinite wisdom becomes apparent through his choice of antennae.

Do we have any GTA V fans here who used to watch this series?

Trevor Phillips Is In Fallout 4?

You may have noticed that there is quite a bit of buzz around Fallout 4 on GTA 5 Cheats, despite this being a site dedicated to GTA V, as the name suggests.

The reason for this is that multiple times in the past it became clear that the fanbase of the two franchises overlaps greatly. This is proven by how much Fallout themed fan content has been made for GTA V, and, to our defense, we only ever write about something that is related to GTA V.

Now, with the release of Fallout 4, which supports mods on both PC and Xbox One (take notes, Rockstar), it’s time to report on some GTA V fan content made for the post-apocalyptic RPG.

foPA

With the amount of content in Fallout 4’s release version, people are still chomping through the official content, so modding hasn’t really taken off yet. Despite this, players have found a way of bringing a bit of other franchises, namely GTA V, into the wasteland. Fallout 4 features the most advanced character creation system the video game industry has ever seen, giving the player a seemingly insurmountable amount of customization options. Obviously the first thing people did with it was try and remake existing characters or celebrities.

One player, wselander, has remade GTA V’s own Trevor Phillips, the psychopathic Canadian who appears as a protagonist in Rockstar’s blockbuster. The recreation is so authentic, that you’d think it really is just Trevor from GTA V, and if you weren’t told that the screenshot was made in Fallout 4, you’d probably never figure it out.

trev

Players have also recreated other popular game characters, such as Geralt of Rivia, the protagonist of the Witcher franchise, the third installment of which also took some creative pointers from GTA V. Others include Walter White, Vladimir Putin and the duo from Beavis and Butthead.

Have you guys stayed true to GTA V, or are you off exploring the wasteland?
