Grand Theft Auto: Wanted Level Challenge

Grand Theft Auto: Wanted Level Challenge

While we're usually shining paragons of law-abiding virtue here on Outside Xbox, very occasionally we do enjoy the thrill of a police chase. Naturally we opt for the most disproportionately punished crime in GTA - backing up to the gates of Fort Zancudo for three wanted stars - to initiate the Grand Theft Sporto Wanted Level Challenge. Longest survivor wins and direct interference with other competitors is strictly forbidden. Not that it's ever stopped us before.

Show of the Week: GTA 5 on Xbox One?

You know a place we haven't visited in a while? Los Santos. It's high time we returned to the state of San Andreas to have a poke around in GTA Online. After all, if rumours are to be believed, there could be a delicious next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5 waiting patiently in the wings, which would render our Xbox 360 copies completely obsolete. GTA 5 on Xbox One? Watch on while we weigh up the odds.

Grand Theft Sporto: Car Conkers

Grand Theft Sporto: Car Conkers

For the second round of our Grand Theft Sporto competition, we looked back into the mists of time and took inspiration from our school days. There's a certain purity of competition to playground games, mainly because kids are completely incapable of fair adjudication. These are games with very clear winners and losers - no room for disputes. With that in mind, we came up with the patently ludicrous GTA Car Conkers.

GTA Online: $10,000 Bounty Challenge

GTA Online: $10,000 Bounty Challenge

Join us for another Grand Theft Auto Online challenge! This time, Mike and I set $10,000 bounties on each other's heads, then see who can survive the longest. It's a set-up much like that of Batman: Arkham Origins, only instead of being highly equipped geniuses trained to the peak of human perfection, we're us, and instead of being hunted by elite assassins, we're running from a server full of psychopathic GTA Online players. Will we survive the night? Where did that guy get an attack helicopter? Is the grotto of the Playboy mansion a defensible position? Hit the jump to find out.

GTA Online and How We Play It: Our Favourite GTA Online Moments

GTA Online and How We Play It: Our Favourite GTA Online Moments

It's Grand Theft Auto Online launch week and after some teething problems (many teething problems) it seems to be settling down and players are getting stuck in. Much like the main game, Grand Theft Auto Online is a gloriously madcap sandbox where all structure and planning goes out of the window the second you drive past a ramp, or a robbable shop, or something shiny. Now we're all finally playing it, Mike, Jane and I gather around nothing (Outside Xbox continues to have no watercooler) to discuss our favourite GTA Online moments so far.

GTA 5: What Does Trevor Do When We're Not Around?

GTA 5: What Does Trevor Do When We're Not Around?

Character switching is my favourite of Grand Theft Auto 5's new features. Being able to jump between protagonists at a moment's notice lets you fast travel around the map and keeps the game interesting. By interrupting a protagonist in the middle of his everyday activity you also get an insight into what his life is like when you're not hurling him out of helicopters. Michael tends to sit around looking depressed. Franklin spends a lot of time driving. And Trevor? Well. See for yourself in this compilation of the best Trevor vignettes from Grand Theft Auto 5's character switching. Warning: contains more than one instance of Trevor in his pants.

Show of the Week: GTA Online and 5 Things We Still Don't Know About It

Grand Theft Auto Online is the multiplayer segment of GTA 5. It launches on October 1st, which is coincidentally when you expect this site to fall into complete inactivity as we spend every waking hour robbing convenience stores to pay for a new haircut. We had a good run. In the meantime, please enjoy this Show of the Week that takes in GTA Online and the five crucial things we still don't know about it, plus Mike's triumphant return from that American football team and Jane's addiction to spider venom.

GTA 5 and How We Play It: Our Favourite GTA 5 Moments

Grand Theft Auto 5 is watercooler gaming at its best: a huge, anecdote-generating sandbox brimming with diversions, side missions and random encounters in which no two playthroughs are going to be the same. To share our experiences, Jane and I gather around the proverbial watercooler (Outside Xbox has no watercooler) to discuss our favourite GTA 5 moments so far.

Grand Theft Auto Online Trailer is More Than You Dared to Dream

Grand Theft Auto Online is where Grand Theft Auto 5 meets multiplayer, but it's less a mode and more an online game in its own right.

Is Grand Theft Auto 5 Coming To Next-Gen Consoles?

We're not saying GTA 5 isn't a good looking game. Far from it. But with new consoles arriving a few weeks after the launch of what's likely to be the biggest game on the planet, you might be wondering if Rockstar have a slightly more crisp next-generation version of the game hidden up their sleeves. Let's look at the evidence, shall we?

GTA 5 Multiplayer: 6 Ways to Make it Perfect

The closer we get to the launch in September, the more details we find out about Grand Theft Auto V, such as the kind of underpants Trevor wears, or how we'll all be playing tennis in between murder sprees. But one thing we're still in the dark about is the multiplayer mode, known as Grand Theft Auto online. But that's not going to keep us from dreaming about GTA V's multiplayer mode.
