The First GTA:V Details Are On The Way

I’m sure Game Informer editor in chief Andy McNamara is a good guy. Hard working, clean nosed, beloved by friends and small animals, etc.

But today he’s also a real bastard.

According to McNamara’s Twitter account, he is in New York today ready to sit down with a playable version of GTA:V at the invitation of Rockstar. Also according to the feed, this is in preparation for Game Informer’s upcoming December issue where they will most likely blow the lid off of the game with the first real details including, fingers crossed, a possible release date.

GTA is one of those series that has the rare “Beatles” effect where it enjoys the luxury of being both one of the most artistically impressive entrants in its field, as well as one of the most popular. It’s not hard to make the case that it is the definitive game of this generation, and every morsel we’ve gotten about the newest entrant into the series (including those incredible screenshots) has been more tantalizing than the ones that came before it.  To think that we will soon know hard information on the game is really giving me that kid at Christmas feeling.


Portal 2 will release on Mac

Portal screenshot.As if the news of Steam coming to Macs weren’t enough, fanboys can rejoice today for more great news from Valve. As the latest issue of Game Informer confirms, Portal 2 is coming and it’s coming to Macs.

The PAL Game Network has scans of the cover story from Game Informer, which shows the basic info about the game – developer, release window, platforms, etc. There isn’t much more information, other than the fact that the game will be incredible. If you haven’t played the original Portal just go buy the Orange Box. It’s easily one of the most enjoyable games I’ve ever played, no lie (the cake on the other hand…). And it all started as a trial.

Luckily for us, Portal 2 will be a full-length game, set to release this fall.
