GTA IV vs. Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the best game ever title

50°
333w ago - Since it's launch in 1998, Miyamoto's masterpiece "The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time" has filled the number one spot of many "Best Game Ever" lists. But is it about to give up it's crown?

Currently ranked at number one on popular video game ratings system GameRankings.com, Ocarina Of Time has a rating average of 97.68%. The rating, which is calculated as an average from a collection of popular website sources, has had Link's classic quest sit atop of the charts for the past 10 years, but, with the spectacle of Rockstar's new Grand Theft Auto game, it might finally be time for Nintendo's (in my opinion) best game ever to step to the side.

With a rating calculated from 12 reviews (OOT has 32) the XBOX 360 version of GTA4 is currently sitting with an average score of 99.25%. Given the sheer hype of the game as the reviews fall in we can't see the game dropping by too much either (although GameSpot.com don't like reviewing games higher than 9.6).

Many reviews already consider GTA4 to be the best game of this decade if not the best game ever.

Either way - it's a feat that has to be acknowledged. Few games have come close to Ocarina Of Time in the past 10 years - with only The Orange Box and Super Mario Galaxy posing a threat.

It's a testament to both how good Miyamoto's...
 

New X-Rated Mod discovered in GTA IV?!

300°
333w ago - Those clever hackers have done it again! Hacker group VladsBoys' analysis of the pirated copy of GTA IV for the 360 (leaked days before retail release) has reeled in a big one. The cyber-sleuths knew they were on the trail of something big and yes, you guessed it, they found another never-intended-for-retail-consumption chunk of code in a GTA game.

What the hackers found seems to be an abandoned mission that Rockstar at some point intended on including in the game. We have no idea how far into the process this mission got before it was pulled, but we're pretty sure they knew what they were doing by the mission name... that name was Hot Coughing.

Hacker R*Fan4Lyfe noted in a forum post that while the audio files for the mission were not included in the disc image (and presumably are not on the retail disc either,) the subtitles for the mission dialogue were still present. The mission involves Niko going to the hospital after pulling a groin muscle in one of the game's side missions; a mission that is actually present in the retail game.

While in the hospital, Niko is hounded by an ambulance chasing attorney humorously named Jerk Thompson. The attorney pesters Niko about his accident, trying to convince him that violent cartoons such as Tom & Jerry or Looney Tunes were to blame....
 

30 Ways to Tell if you are a GTA IV Addict!

50°
333w ago - Grand Theft Auto IV has been out for a whopping four days and we here at The Exploding Barrel are already officially addicted to Niko and Liberty City. Borrowing a page from the redneck comedian Jeff Foxworthy, we've compiled a list of 30 ways to tell if you are addicted to GTA IV.

Ready? "You might be a GTA IV addict if..."

- You adopted an awkward Eastern European accent because it makes you feel like a badass.

- You've pretended to carjack your own car that was sitting in your driveway.

- You made your girlfriend stand on the corner just so you could drive up and honk your horn.

- You drive around town aimlessly with nothing but the GTA IV soundtrack blaring from
your car.

- You blow through every single red light you encounter, but still take it easy around the fuzz.

- You've taken a sudden interest in local Russian vaudeville shows.

- You spend more time planning Niko's outfits than your own.

- You've seriously contemplated getting a tattoo of Niko on your forearm.

- You've started to wear gold jewelry and keep the first three buttons of your shirt open.

- You refuse to watch any television other than the in-game TV at your safehouse.

- You run when...
 

UK Retail Hails Record-Breaking GTA IV

50°
333w ago - Gian Luzio, Play.com's head of games, says Grand Theft Auto IV has become the online store's fastest selling game ever, while specialist UK retailer Game has labeled the title's launch "phenomenal".

"GTA IV is the fastest selling game ever on Play.com and has broken the record previously held by GTA San Andreas," Luzio told Next-Gen on Thursday.

He said that sales had been "neck and neck" between the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game building up to release, but that in the last couple of days the 360 version had been "creeping ahead in daily sales". He did add that "the PS3 GTA IV hardware bundle sold out within 24 hours."

Both versions of the title are temporarily out of stock, but Luzio said that customers shouldn't have too long to wait before they can pick up a copy.

"We are receiving regular shipments from Take-Two and they have handled the biggest game release admirably. Congratulations to all of them for doing such a great job in difficult circumstances (enough groveling, give me more stock!)."

While business has been booming in recent weeks for UK videogame retailers, with the likes of Mario Kart Wii, Wii Fit and now GTA IV bringing in the pounds, Luzio said that the latter half of the year may yet prove to be even...
