We Shine The Spotlight On GTA V Fan Videos

Once again Rockstar has taken to it’s Newswire to increase the popularity of select GTA V fan videos which go above and beyond all expectations. These videos are particularly well shot, particularly entertaining, particularly crazy or particularly professional. The one thing that is common among them all is the immense amount of effort that went into perfecting them, into making them the best of the best.

Occasionally Rockstar has been known to use it’s own blog as a platform to spread the word on select fan creations, be it jobs, videos, challenges or art.

This week, they’ve brought us the cream of the crop when it comes to Rockstar Editor creations. We here at GTA 5 Cheats decided to complement Rockstar’s list with the unsung stars of GTA V fan videos.

First up we have “Breackneck”, an 8 minute short film made using the Rockstar Editor, 150 GB of footage, and a custom soundtrack mixed one-effect-at-a-time, containing over 1100 individual sounds. If you think that’s impressive, wait till you see the video. It is inspired by some of the greatest car chase scenes in all of cinematography, and features Trevor as he attempts a high speed escape. Every scene is made with care, and the whole thing oozes professionalism.

Next up we have a rather valiant effort of creating a GTA V video on a console instead of PC. While the Rockstar Editor will be releasing on consoles soon, it hasn’t quite happened yet, and creating machinima in consoles is significantly more difficult. This video is a GTA V adaptation of Friday the 13th. Jason uses a rubber baton instead of a machete, and the scream near the beginning of the film is still better voice acting that the source material. Check it out!

Rockstar collected some truly great videos in their list. Which videos would you guys add?

The Newest Best GTA V Fan Art

Rockstar likes to keep the GTA V community engaged even when they’re not running one of GTA Online’s challenging heists. They often post on their proprietary news platform, the Rockstar Newswire, about community creations such as custom jobs, impressive Rockstar Editor videos or particularly creative fan art. We’ve brought to you reports of previous batches of GTA V fan art publicized on the Newswire before, and Rockstar has just posted another batch.

First up we have a criminally stylish desktop wallpaper inspired by the neon-laden setting of GTA: Vice City. A night drive along the beach boulevard with the colorful glow of the city illuminating the evening seems like the perfect way to relax after a hard day, based on this sweet image.

Next up we have, instead of a particular art submission (though that cover is impressive), another collection of GTA fan art. meta. “What Happens In The Dark” is a community created GTA fan art online magazine, aimed at all you discerning criminals out there. Check it out here!

The next, rather active image comes from Chank, who specializes in sticker-style art. Here, he gives us a disturbingly accurate idea of what kind of a person Trevor Phillips really is.

gta_art_trevor

In a sharp turn following the previous piece, this submission depicts what Trevor would be like after his “conversion” to the mentality of peace, joy, happiness, tolerance and… well, drugs. Some things never change, right?

gta_art_hippie

Next up is a callback to the days of GTA: San Andreas, depicting the Grove Street family big-head style. The well known and loved characters of the legendary game, Sweet, Big Smoke, CJ and Ryder appear in their signature green garb and toting a fierce arsenal.

We ask this every time, but have you guys ever made any GTA V fan art? Feel free to share in the comments!

GTA V’s Trevor Is A Better Joker Than Jared Leto

With the recent buzz around the upcoming Suicide Squad film, following the leak and subsequent reveal of the movie’s first trailer, the debate regarding Jared Leto’s depiction of the Joker has set the web on fire. Many fans are disappointed at how far removed this particular Joker seems to be from the character that appears in the comics. Those defending the new approach to the character often say that before the movie was released, everyone was skeptical of Heath ledger.

And this is where GTA V comes into the picture. With the whole Joker debate going full steam, GTA V’s resident mass-murdering psychopath, Trevor, put a smile on his face. Using a host of mods, a player has transformed “his” Trevor into what seems to be a mix of Jack Nicholson’s and Heath Ledger’s Joker. Though Trevor/Joker does not seem to be having too much fun in his insanity induced rampages, which pretty much defeats the whole idea of being the Joker, the costume, if you will, is pretty damn authentic. The mix of the two quintessential psychopaths doesn’t bode well for the citizens of Los Santos and Blaine County!

Trevor, much like the Joker but in a significantly more obvious way, is social commentary (something that comes up often in GTA V) molded into the shape of a human being, so their combination seems like an illogical but fitting evolution for both characters. This seems like perfect cross-over territory. Michael, a rich but dissatisfied and bored former-athlete witnesses the atrocities committed by Trevor/Joker, so he blows a fortune to body-mod a car into a poor Batmobile replica, and he starts chasing the psycho with an arsenal of heavy weapons, thus thoroughly disrespecting the source material because he doesn’t actually know anything about Batman. Fan-fic writers, you’re welcome! How good a Joker does Trevor make in your opinion?

GTA V Singleplayer DLC Coming After All

Oh, the AAA industry. When a big name company says they won’t do something and then do the thing anyway. Most recently we had Microsoft announcing backwards compatibility on the Xbox One, and now, after the CEO of Rockstar’s parent company said not to expect any singleplayer content, one of the voice actors teases some upcoming DLC.


Shhhh…..YALL KNOW WHY I GOT THIS SUIT ON

A photo posted by I AM WHO I AM (@solo118) on

Shawn Fonteno, voice actor of Franklin, one of the three playable protagonists of GTA V, posted a picture on Instagram of himself wearing a motion capture suit in front of a GTA Vice City poster. The image description reads “Shhhh…..YALL KNOW WHY I GOT THIS SUIT ON”.

Its pretty obvious he’s doing some mocap work for is role in GTA V, which means we’ll definitely be getting some more single player DLC.

Some eager players began mining the game’s code for information, and some interesting things popped up. A pointer to a model called “ig_agent14”, which is different from the “ig_mp_agent14” which appears in GTA Online suggest we’ll be meeting Agent 14 in the upcoming DLC. Other sources say that, while Trevor will be off infiltrating the IAA in the Agent DLC, Michael will be battling the risen dead in the Zombie DLC. How Franklin factors into this all, we do not yet know, but he is most likely involved in the Casino Heist.

The info mining on the unconfirmed DLC has turned up possible mission trigger locations, such as the IAA headquarters.

In regards to the Zombie DLC, there is much less concrete info. The DLC has been hinted at in the past, and it’s not unlike Rockstar to release undead content for their games, see RDR. It is most likely that the DLC will be in connection with Michael’s strong ties to the movie industry, and the missions will be centered around the production of a zombie flick.

What do you guys think of these rumors? Are you happy that there is singleplayer DLC on the way?

Two newish pieces of GTA 5 artwork

Is it just us or is September 17 taking its sweet time in getting here? On the one hand we’ve broken through the 90 day/three month barrier (check out the countdown timer on the left), but on the other hand we still have 84 days to go. To add to the suspense, we’ve had no real news or fresh screenshots/video for quite some time – until today.

First, Gamestop has some recent posters, including one showing new artwork (update – see below). In it, you can see Franklin and Michael in the midst of planning a heist and sorting out the arsenal of weapons they’re gonna need. Pretty cool.

heist-poster

Update: the artwork above is not new, but (like the image below) the quality and format is.

Secondly, you might remember the “Easy Rider” Trevor image that we posted a while back. The problem is the pic was pretty low quality. Well a Hungarian gaming site – GTAGames.hu – has found a much better version, which we’ve embedded below for you. The watermark is a shame, but what ya gonna do?

Trevor as Easy Rider & Fresh Tidbits

A recent GTA V article from Polish magazine PSX Extreme has been scanned and posted on the web, and aside from the new image (great to see Rockstar paying homage to Easy Rider) there’s also quite a bit of new information. It’s true meaning may have been (somewhat) lost in translation, but nevertheless, read on…

trevor-easy-rider

  • When one of your other characters (ie one you are not controlling) is on the verge of death, you will hear warning signals (possibly vocal cues or music) alerting you to the fact they are in trouble (and presumably you need to switch to them to help out).
  • The military base will contain a massive selection of different military vehicles. You can reach it un-noticed and access the equipment if you are good enough.
  • There are three ways to transition between your characters: (1) automatic; (2) while viewing a movie; and (3) player initiated (clicking the appropriate HUD button).
  • After Chop (Franklin’s dog) plays his main role he can get lost and end up in the pound if Franklin neglects him (think horses in Red Dead Redemption).
  • Transitions between characters will not take more than 10 seconds maximum.
  • When you die the screen goes blurry.
  • The quality of in-game graphics is just as good as has been shown in the trailers (hooray!).
  • The Vinewood sign is visible from any corner of the city and if you climb the sign, you’ll get a one-star wanted level. Doing anything illegal like this will be enforced (like walking over a car bridge, climbing onto the roof of a train, etc).
  • Just about every big house in the map has a tennis court and they can all be played on.
  • You can get hit by lightning.
  • You need to obey road rules or else you will get a one-star wanted level.
  • There will be drunk drivers that you’ll need to look out for on the road.
  • There’s lots of car wrecks and other vehicle under the sea for you to explore – planes, boats, bodies, etc.
  • Driving a golf cart anywhere but on a golf course will earn you a fine.
  • As your wanted-level increases, the rhythm and intensity of the in-game music increases.

Cops on Bikes Revealed in New Screenshots

Four new GTA 5 screenshots have sneaked their way into the wild and we’ve now added them to our image gallery below for you to check out.  The underwater scuba and submarine shot is pretty cool (and makes you wonder just how far will this undersea exploration thing will go..), but probably the biggest, newest piece of information to come out of the new pics is cops on motorbikes.

In the image with Trevor driving the yellow muscle car, you can clearly see he is being chased by not only a SWAT team and normal police cruiser, but a couple of cops of motorbikes. This is a first for the GTA series.

What do you think of the new screens?

All New Character Trailers for GTA 5

The three character trailers for GTA 5 have been released and let me say this game is gonna be AWESOME. Check out all three clips within the single video below – first Michael, then Franklin, and finally Trevor (in our opinion, saving the best for last).

Direct video link:  http://g5c.co/6

Within the game you’ll be able to actually switch between all three characters as you progress, and as you can see, each has a very different background and motivations for what they do.

Here at GTA 5 Cheats we were pumped for the release on September 17, but now it’s safe to say that we really, seriously can’t wait! Grand Theft Auto V does not look like it is going to disappoint.

GTA 5 has been announced for PS3 and Xbox 360 only at this stage.

Update:  if you want to view the individual trailers for each character, they are available now on our videos page.
