Grand Theft Auto Downloads Now At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Macgamestore.com has added Grand Theft Auto 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas to its list of digital download titles available for purchase. The three titles feature the signature sandbox gameplay fans of the series have come to expect, giving players the chance to make their own choices in the crime ridden streets.

Grand Theft Auto 3:
Crime does pay.

The hugely successful, highly controversial Grand Theft Auto franchise moves into three dimensions in the dark and seedy underworld of Liberty City.

With the freedom to go anywhere and jack anyone, Grand Theft Auto III puts the dark, intriguing and ruthless world of crime at your fingertips, if you have enough guts to take it.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City:
Welcome to the 1980s.

From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile as Grand Theft Auto returns.

Vice City is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied, complete and alive digital city ever created. Combining non-linear gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and are given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas:
Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas... a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where film stars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.

Now, it's the early 90's. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.

Marble Arena 2 Coming This December
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Brightside Entertainment has announced Marble Arena 2, a free physics based 3D marble game. Featuring HD graphics and a built-in editor for creating custom levels, the game will challenge players' skill at rolling marbles across a variety of surfaces and through a collection of physics contraptions.

The game will feature 50 mayhem filled levels, and being a physics based game, it will test the player's rolling skills on several types of surfaces and make use of a multitude of physics contraptions in fun and sometimes headache inducing ways.

Updated graphics engine will provide vibrant, 2011 looking, HD graphics, while still maintaining compatibility with lower spec'd computers or laptops.

Players will be pitted against sneaky A.I. controlled marbles in single player games, and against each other in multiplayer games of up to 32 participants.

The built-in editor will allow easy creation of custom levels, or customization of already existing ones.
Marble Arena 2 is scheduled to be available on December 13, 2011 for Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs.

Check out the game's trailer at the link below.

Portal 2: Peer Review Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

eTeknix has poasted a new review of Valve's free Peer Review DLC update for its action puzzler Portal 2. The game features a new co-op test track with both single player and co-op challenge modes. eTeknix gave the game a silver award.

From the review:

Now, as I mentioned previously the main element of the DLC is the new Art Therapy section of co-op. Entering the zone will see you through 9 different levels. Each level has a mixture of everything you will have encountered previously, lasers, cubes/spheres, light platforms, excursion funnels and of course the gels. Oh… let’s not forget those pesky little turrets either. While we did see 9 levels introduced, it didn’t add as much gameplay as you may think. If you’re still thinking with portals from the previous play through, or just keep up the practice, you’ll be whizzing through the 9 levels in no time.

Steam has me clocked at 2 hours of gameplay, however there was a good period of AFKs from my partner in crime (he knows who he is..). So all in all you’re probably looking at 60-90 minutes dependant on your skill level, and your partners for that matter.

There is a storyline to the Art Therapy course. P-Body and Atlas are pretty much on a mission to save GLaDOS who is currently being attacked by an unknown source. It’s your job to reach her and vanquish this enemy as an elite killing squad….. equipped with portal guns…
