GTA Online players won't let this guy perform HamletJun 17, 2021 - PCGamesNGTA Online isn't the most hospitable of places. The public servers tend to be unruly, with every step you take from your apartment inching you closer to a rocket from someone else, which is why plenty flock to GTA RP to live out their performance fantasies. However, one player decided to go against the trend by bringing some live art to the public servers, and it cost the poor lad dearly. Content creator Rustic Mascara had several goes at performing Hamlet in GTA Online's public servers (thanks, Kotaku). Why? To reappropriate "the world of GTA as a space for meditative existentialism through performance and poetry". It mostly doesn't go well, and he dies a bunch. He starts by performing Hamlet's To Be Or Not To Be while standing in a lake sporting an undercut and a tank top. It goes pretty well, and he carries out the monologue in the lake free from passers' eyes. Once he takes to the beach, though - the issues begin. He tries to perform another of Hamlet's monologues but is interrupted by several rockets from other players. He does get there eventually, though not to a great deal of fanfare.

In an attempt to bring some culture to this world, one YouTuber tried to stage a one-man performance of Hamlet—but quickly found Los Santos to be a city hostile to a bit of Shakespearian flair...

You're not alone. Learning what to pick in the vehicle selection screen of a GTA Online race is difficult enough, especially if custom vehicles are enabled. But it doesn't have to be hard. We all know that one wrong selection can lead to a pretty rough race, so if you're clever enough to do your research to find out what the fastest bikes in GTA 5 actually are, you're more likely to have more successful races. There's a lot to think about, though. While you might be tempted to opt for a bike based on its in-game stats or how quickly you think it can do 0-60mph, it's worth considering other factors, like handling and traction too. So with all of that in mind, here are the fastest bikes in GTA 5, based on their top speed, lap times, and price. Read the rest of the story...

Rockstar will post an official rundown on its newswire later on in the day, but the update is already live, so why wait? If you're looking to fetch some more dosh this week, you'll want to spend some time doing land races as they're paying out triple the usual reward. Land races are a reasonably straightforward affair as they involve doing laps until you hit the finish line, but they also capture the simple joy of racing in Los Santos. If you're looking for something else, you can get double the rewards on special cargo missions and business battles. The former is all about delivering stock when you've filled your warehouse to a certain amount, whereas the latter is a free mode event that pits you against other players who are trying to nab cargo. If you need a warehouse - or fancy a new one - you can pick one up at a 50% discount. You're also getting 40% off high-end apartments and the Diamond Casino master penthouse alongside 60% off all offices. Read the rest of the story...

Well, if you've looked at the calendar, you'll know that's this very day - and those races have now indeed hit Rockstar's online action-adventure game. While the official rundown hasn't yet been posted to the studio's Newswire just yet, players have been taking a peep at what's new with today's weekly update. As Tez2 reports on Twitter, the eight new Stunt Races are available to play right now. These are a kind of fact-paced race that involve - yep, you guessed it - performing stunts and tricks around a bunch of different obstacles, like ramps, loop-the-loops, rings of fire, and that kind of thing. There were already more than 40 in the game, and now there are even more to try out. Elsewhere in the weekly update, the panther statue from the Cayo Perico heist which was at last made lootable last week has now been disabled. But, the good news is there's a new GTA Online podium car as ever, which this week is the flashy Nero Custom hypercar. Read the rest of the story...

No, it isn't Grand Theft Auto V on another platform. It's also not another nightclub inside of GTA Online, but that is warmer. Rockstar have actually partnered with club music event hosts CircoLoco to launch CircoLoco Records. Yes, in real life, not in GTA. The label's first compliation record, Monday Dreamin’, releases on July 9th but they've already debuted the first track off the album.

Join Eurogamer reporter Emma Kent, news editor Tom Phillips and me in the video below for an action-packed show of thrills, spills and the odd mug check. We start with our usual catch-up on what we've been playing, and there's plenty of Mass Effect Legendary Edition talk (sorry, Emma). After that, we move on to the week's big talking point: Nintendo. Do we give Nintendo's bad business practices a free pass? It's a topic we discuss, sparked by the revelation the Zelda and Loftwing amiibo figurine for Skyward Sword HD remaster lets you zip between the game's airborne overworld and Hyrule's surface, wherever you are - a handy feature not available in the original game. The amiibo costs $25.

The feat was achieved by UnNameD, who uploaded a three-part video of the run to YouTube on Sunday. According to the description this was UnNameD's 48th attempt at completing the run, in which he had "1HP, no Trevor ability, no armours, 0 deaths". UnNameD used the One Hit KO mod to complete the run, which kills the player immediately if they take any form of damage. That includes rogue cars, stray bullets, or even falling a little too hard on the floor. As for the nine-hour time posted by UnNameD, it takes the average player about 31.5 hours to beat GTA 5's main story, while top-tier speedrunners can do it in about 3.3 hours with mission skips. They don't have to worry so much about taking damage, however.

Players have been dipping into Los Santos to see what's new in the GTA Online weekly update and lo and behold! There it is, alongside the usual offering of discounts and boosted rewards. Rockstar Games tipster Tez2 explains that the statue is available as Cayo Perico loot with a one-time guaranteed chance this week. Players have been waiting for this one as it's the most lucrative thing you can get from the heist, fetching a price of GTA $1.73 million on normal and GTA $1.9 million on the hard difficulty. Now that's available, nabbing it should be a breeze. Simply select the panther statue as your heist target, decide on your approach for the Cayo Perico heist, and then jump in and swipe it. The way this all works is similar to what Rockstar has done with the Diamond Casino heist. The most lucrative thing you can capture from the casino's vault is diamonds, though it's only offered when special events roll around. Read the rest of the story...

The GTA 5 speedrunning community has been competing against each other to nail this one for a few months now, with everyone bringing new ideas to the table. Players govern this particular run by using a mod that gives them one health point and disables Trevor's special ability, which allows him to take minor damage and inflict more pain on other people. As you can imagine, the ability ruins the integrity of the speedrun a tad as it practically makes Trevor invincible, making it very gameable for the game's more difficult sections. GTA 5 player UnNameD explains on Reddit that it took them 48 attempts to complete the challenge, though the speedrunner did finish the game eight times. UnNameD's winning run clocked up nine hours in total, so you can only imagine how much time this took overall. Read the rest of the story...

In fiscal year 2022, which ends on March 31, 2021, Take-Two will launch four new "immersive core" games, and half of them will be from new franchises. "In fiscal 2022, we plan to deliver an exciting array of offerings, including four immersive core releases, of which two will be from new franchises," CEO Strauss Zelnick says in a press release. Take-Two typically includes sports titles in its 'immersive core' label, so it's likely the two existing franchises are WWE 2K and NBA 2K. That leaves us wondering what the new franchises launched this year will be, and there's not much of a clue just yet. While "new franchise" suggests new IP, it's possible that these will be licensed games, which would still be a new franchise to 2K. The one thing we know for sure is that none of these four 'immersive core' games will be free-to-play. Read the rest of the story...

The developer teased what's coming over the summer months on its newswire for both games, but gave more specific updates on what GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2 are getting this month. GTA Online is getting eight new stunt races on May 27 and seven new arenas for the Deadline mode shortly after that. Survival mode is also getting new locations throughout Los Santos and Blaine County. Rockstar didn't give away too much on the game's summer update, but it looks like it'll be themed around underground racing. "Expect high stakes and high action as crews hit the streets to get hold of the latest vehicles on the hot list, challenge each other in new race types, or take part in a series of multi-part robbery missions, where a precisely modified getaway vehicle will be your best weapon," Rockstar says. "All later this summer." Read the rest of the story...

The service lasted for one hour on one of Los Santos' beaches and consisted of various players coming forward to pay their respects and share memories. A variety streamer, DovahPug is described as someone who "got her hands dirty, made friends, enemies, frenemies, and would always find a moment to ask how you were doing". She roleplayed Misty Mocha, who was "tough, determined, mellow, and brave". Fellow roleplayer RevRoach confirmed news of her passing earlier this month, sharing the following message from DovahPug: " just want to let you know I really enjoyed the time we have spent together and all the memories we made.

Rather than wait, though, heaps of players are dipping into Los Santos to see what's new for themselves. This week we're getting triple rewards on Target Assault races. If you haven't tried them out before, they offer a cooperative style of racing that tasks one player with driving the car and the other with hitting, you guessed it, targets. If you fancy something in free mode, you can get double the usual rewards on Business Battles. These missions task you with stealing different types of cargo to use at a nightclub warehouse. These events are triggered every 15 minutes, though GTA Online sessions need at least three players in them for them to start. You're also getting 50% off all offices and renovations, so it may be a good time to buy in if you haven't already. Some other bonuses are carrying over, too. We've got the Motor Wars adversary mode from last week that's still paying out triple the usual rewards. That one is a last man standing-type mode where up to four teams duke it out in armoured vehicles. Read the rest of the story...

A group of researchers at Intel Labs used the classic PC game as part of their paper discussing enhancing photorealism. There's a lot of jargon to get to grips with, but the short story is that what they've done with the game looks incredible. The team explains that the project's point is to enhance photorealism enhancement, which essentially means they're making something even more realistic than before - in this case, GTA 5. Intel Labs explains that its method modifies images from the game to look more natural. Each image is enhanced "by a convolutional network that leverages intermediate representations produced by conventional rendering pipelines". Intel Labs further explains that the model it used for the presentation was trained to translate GTA 5's images to the Cityscapes data set, which mainly comprises recordings of German cities captured through an automotive camera.

The event is being held on GTA RP's No Pixel server, though we don't have many details past that (thanks, Wowhead). One of the roleplayers responsible for setting this up is Burn. The content creator has brought a few familiar faces to Los Santos, though this is the first time I've seen him try to reconstruct an event from another game. Burn has previously roleplayed as Gordon Ramsey and more recently caught our attention with his take on Johnny Silverhand. Not only does he impersonate the cyberpunk rocker, but he also jitters and glitches out while talking to people. He'll even strike a t-pose when chatting to others - as you would. If you're new to the world of No Pixel, it's a server run on a third-party multiplayer system called FiveM. It's not technically GTA Online, so players can tweak it to add new modes and features.
