Grand Theft Auto V is a lot of fun, but if you’re getting tired of fighting cops and gangs on the city streets, this new mod may be just what you’re looking for to liven up the action!
GTA V’s UFO Hunters is complete carnage, you simply pick how many alien ships you want to attack the city, hit go, the suffer the consequences. The goal is to blast as many of the flying saucers as possible out of the sky, without being killed yourself. Easier said than done, though, as the ships fire powerful blue plasma weapons, as well as suck cars and people up off the ground before firing them back down, so hazards are literally everywhere.
The mod certainly looks like a lot of fun, although I can’t think of many gaming situations where heavy weapons and alien shooting wasn’t fun! To get the mod up and running, you’ll need to download the mod, Script Hook 5 and the Community Scripthook 5 net, which you can find on the links below.
We’re all used to stunt montages from GTA, but not bird stunt montages. It was with the ‘enhanced’ version of GTA V on the PS4 and Xbox One that Rockstar included the ability to play as a bird and it seems that one YouTuber has really taken that under his wing.
In this video, 8-bit Bastardon YouTube shows us through a number of hair-raising (for birds) stunts. Plus, there’s some of the more everyday bird activities, such as riding the roof of a train.
A lot of things get pushed off as art these days. Splattered paint, piles of rubbish, famous paintings in raw data, just to name a few. But what about GTA V without any textures? Is that really ‘art’?
Maybe more so than the others in that list. These images consist of screenshots of Los Santos from GTA V without any textures. Artist Kim Laughton had the idea and her shots are now part of the Monadigital exhibition Flanetrie in China.
The images offer a unique view of the city formed of abstract shapes.
There’s a lot of these videos nowadays. Kids, teens and old people get sat in front of a game, piece of old or new technology, an outrageous YouTube video, or pretty much anything else that’ll get an interesting reaction, and they’re just asked to say what they think about it.
Well this time, the latest ‘REACT’ video features a bunch of elderly people attempting to get Michael De Santa to walk. There’s more to it obviously, but a lot of it is just about getting him to walk.
See it and their hilarious reactions for yourself in the video bellow.
We’ve recently reported on Apple Pay coming to your mobile phone through their technology advancements, now news has come to light that a credit card processing service for small firms called Square is looking to bring it to the wider audience. The original list of participating Apple Pay stores was completely dominated by big names, leaving the small fish in some hot water.
In basic terms, Square is described as a mobile credit-card reader that allows a small business to process payments without needing a terminal. Originally seen as a competitor to Apple Pay, Square’s founder Jack Dorsey has publicly stated that his companies service is designed to function as “a [cash] register, and this register accepts all these forms of payments”, not a competitor to Apple’s newly announced technology. Adding to this, he is planning to integrate Apple Pay compatibility into his existing model with development said to commence in 2015.
CNN reported that this change will require a hardware update into Square’s existing technology, which currently serves as a module that plugs into smartphones. However, we’ve come to learn that most smartphones with NFC capabilities will quite possibly allow Square’s Apple Pay integration to work flawlessly without touching any hardware upgrades. If you’re a small business and are planning to use Apple pay, it’s about time you grabbed yourself a Nexus 5 or later model phone.
This is some good news for small business owners for sure, once again opening up another portal for their customers to pay with ease. We’re waiting with baited breath to see if, when and how Apple Pay takes off in the mainstream market.
Android 5.0 has been released to a massive reception in Western nations, promising and delivering a handy new user interface amongst other spectacular features.
Unfortunately for the Chinese population, almost all of this will go unused. Due to some reported issues ‘left over by history’, most domestic acquired Android users will be using non-native Android operating systems. Most Chinese-domestic phones are running a customized third-party ROM, including offerings such as HTC’s Sense, the Millet Miui and Meizu’s Flyme amongst many other handhelds.
You can’t help but feel sorry for them, given the positive reports that have been coming out of Android 5.0 thus far. Since the birth of Android, it is according to some that the Android 5.0 update is the first time that they finally ‘get it’, offering an innovative, stylish and simple interface design that’s obviously meant to compete with and crush iOS’ offering. Alongside this, these limitations aren’t just set to their mobile phones – Lollipop extends over Android OS run tablets, TV’s and wearable technology. Meaning that some of their products will be running the fancy updated OS, alongside their ‘basic’ looking third-party phone interface.
Grand Theft Auto IV hasn’t even been out for a month yet, and it has already broken seven Guinness World records.

GTA 5 was perhaps one of, if not the most anticipated games for 2013, and it hasn’t even been released for PC yet. Though rumors are speculating that PC gamers wont be waiting long to get in on the chaos of Los Santos and Blaine County. Rumors state that the game will be released as early as November 22.
Rumors of a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V have been rife. Last month, reports stated that the game will indeed be available for PCs, and it will be released November 22, 2013 though games don’t usually release on a Friday, I would assume it would be on either the 19th, or the 26th of November. I wont hold my breath though, as I have been anticipating a release date of around Mid- to Late March.
