Rockstar_Editor.jpgNow that the Rockstar Editor is out for GTA V/ Grand Theft Auto Online had to give it a go.  When I first seen it videos people did on the PC it looks pretty awesome.  Being on a computer it would be easy to do things.  So wasn’t sure how it would work on the game consoles.

Have to say the editor is pretty robust.  There are two main mode you can use the Directory Mode.  This is were you can pick any character model.  Then change all kinds of options to set the scene.  So then you can start capturing your gameplay.  Then in turn edit it.  Didn’t try this mode yet.

The second is you can capture your story mode or online play.  Decided to play some online to try out the editor.  It is pretty easy to start capturing video.  You just press down on the digital pad.  There are two option, one to just to start recoding  The one is to turn on action recoding.  This captures about 30 seconds or so and keeps doing that to get all the action.

The actual editing is pretty easy. There are some limitations compared to working on a computer.  However they make up for that with all kinds of options with filters and audio.  The coolest thing I like so far is free form camera placement.  You can move the camera to just about any angle.

The only thing I don’t like is when playing back your full project it stops then loads the next clip.  So it doesn’t play start to finish like it would on a computer.

To get the video on to YouTube you must have be a member Rockstar Games Social Club (which is free) and link your YouTube/Google account.

Over all think this is an awesome bonus to GTA V fans.  Gives everyone the ability to make videos with GTA would out having to buy any kind of capturing device.

Played around with the editor for an hour or so.  Just to see what it is all about.  I think with practices and planning some amazing videos can be made.  Below or > here is what is came up with trying it out.

Grand Theft Auto Online: Freemode Events Update

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2015 by getbent57

GTAOnline.jpgThere is a new and very interesting new update coming to Grand Theft Auto Online called Freemode Events Update.  What makes this standout is there will be no loading screens, menu or lobby for this events to take place.  The will happen in the open world and you can choose to take part are not.  You might be asking what are these “events”?  So far they have announced two.

  • King of the Castle An every man for himself turf war where you’ll need to ascend and claim the designated ‘castle’ as your territory, and then fend off everyone else as they go all out to dethrone you.
  • Hunt the Beast — Where one volunteer is temporarily transformed into a faster, stronger, beastly character who must escape relentless pursuers.

Am sure there will be more.  All so there will be two new Adversary Modes.  However I think the biggest news is the update brings the Rockstar Editor to the PS4 and XBox one.  This has been on the PC for a few months now.  Looking forward the most to trying it out.  All this stuff in for this gen consoles.  Non of it will be on PS3 or Xbox 360.  All this good news is even better because it comes out September 15, 2015.  You can read all about it > here.  There is a trailer for it on there as well or > here.

Rockstar_EditorHave some great news for players of GTA V and or Grand Theft Auto Online on the PS4 or Xbox One.  The Rockstar Editor is coming to the game with the next update.  The editor has been on the PC version since April 2015.  It has been rumoured it would come to the game consoles.  Turned out to be true.  With the editor you can do all kind of cool things.  It gives you control of the camera so you can pretty much place it any were. Chance the film speed and filters.  Of course there is a lot more to it.  There is a video explaining it.  Which you can see > here.  Not sure how well it will work on the consoles.  But we will find out soon enough.  Will be giving it a try when it does come out.

Grand Theft Auto Online

GTA_Online_Heists.jpgOver the past few months have been playing Grand Theft Auto Online off and on.  Picked up a copy of the game for my PlayStation 4 back in February.  About every two weeks or so my bother and I will play together.  It is a blast playing the game with someone you know.  Doing the missions is much easier.  Being able to plan things out over the voice chat is nice.  Not a fan of the voice chat in game.  Because if you are to far way you can’t hear each other.  All so if the game crashes you can’t hear each other as well and the quality is not all that good.  We use the PS4’s party chat.  It is a lot better.  Sounds like you are talking on a regular phone.

When I first transfer my PS3 character over was level 86 with all most 140 hours played.  Just a little while ago made it to level 103 with 202 and a half hours played.  Have never played any game for that many hours ever.  Have reached 100 hours or so in some games.  In all those hours was never bored once and still want to go back for more.  While playing with my brother I started to take some pictures with the in game camera.  Which you can then upload to RockStar Games Social Club.   Here are a few.  The first two are my brother taken out some helicopters.  The next one is  us going for a bus ride (which ended badly).  The last one is my car after a sticky bomb fight.
