Hey Nerds, lots of exciting things to tell you about this week, so let's get into it! This week in Nerd News:
-It has been nearly a year since we've seen the original Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer, but Rockstar has been steadily releasing info this week, including a brand new trailer. I, for one, am so stoked! According to Rockstar, you'll play as three main characters: Michael, Trevor, and Franklin. This is the first time ever that you'll play more than one character in a GTA game, but for good reason. Ever finish a mission and then have to drive all the way across the map to get to the next mission? No more. Now you'll be able to jump between characters and take control of them as they are going about their daily life. You'll even be able to switch between them during missions as long as they are present. Don't want to be so close to the action? Switch to a character who is across the street and provide cover by sniping people off.
-For a long time video games have been extremely hard to make and even harder to get your hands on the tools to make them, thus the lack of creativity. L.A. Game Space looks to bring video games back into the hands of the gamers. The goal of the L.A. Game Space is to experiment and create art out of video games. There are for main components of the L.A. Game Space: Residential, Galleries, Research Labs, and the Speaker Series. It's all very interesting and complex, so be sure to go to their Kickstarter page and read more about it. However, if you do decide to donate, you'll get an awesome package of 30 games from people like Pendleton Ward, the maker of Adventure Time!
I could go on and on about more that happened this week, but I'll spare you guys. Be sure to watch Kristina's Answerly video later today for more Nerdy goodness!
