By Jonathan Cullen.

It’s that time of year, folks.

The time where we sort the men from the boys, the wheat from the chaff and find out which is better: Coke or Pepsi? Daddy or Chips? But in our case, Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2.

These are just two of the game that are in the running for Game of the Year 2009, alongside Batman: Arkham Asylum and Street Fighter IV.

We do have other awards too though, you know. So, let’s not waste any other time, and let’s get cracking. All of the awards are below.

Just one thing though: all of the staff involved in the process, both full-time and freelance, had a clean slate. They were free to pick any game that was on the consoles as their nomination. Basically, you picked Left 4 Dead 2 as a nomination in GOTY, it would also go down as your vote for GOTY. Same for all the other categories.

This could mean you may only see one game completely run away with it in one category, while it becoming very close in others.

Grand Theft Auto V Hinted At, Heading to London?

GTA V

Next Gamer has made an interesting find. On the back of  the Episodes From Liberty City manual, they’ve found this picture:

Well? Our eyes are bloodied and far-sighted; you tell us what you be in the ‘rip’! We should know come March 2010…

After staring at the poster for the best part of an hour though, we’re pretty sure that underneith the ‘rip’ in the corner it says ‘Theatre Seagull’. There’s a Seagull Theatre in London.

One other point of note, noticed the guy down in the bottom left of the pic? Looks a bit like the dude from Monopoly wouldn’t you say?

What We Want From…Grand Theft Auto V

Posted in PlayStation 3, Rockstar Games, Take Two, Xbox 360 with tags , , , , on September 8, 2009 by Chris Hawke

GTA V

Grand Theft Auto V: London, to be specific. The fans want it, and Rockstar know it, so why not England’s capital? Going back to Vice City or San Andreas would be billed as ‘lazy’ after going back to Liberty City, and if they were to make a new playground, R* would have to search for an English-speaking, neon-lit metropolis filled with seedy underground crime and many, many cars. Tokyo isn’t English, Canada is hardly a metropolis with underground crime – in fact, unless you were to head back to America, no other place on Earth would fit in with the series’ cynical capitalism-bashing.

We first set shore in 1999, with two London-based expansions to the original GTA – London: 1969, of which you will have fond memories, and London: 1961, which…is best left forgotten. The graphical prowess of those days was…limited, and the London expansions were basically GTA 1 with some new textures, buses, and voices. But imagine what could happen today…

Strauss: We’re Not Announcing When We’re Announcing GTA V

We have a list here at GOONL!NE of people who we dont want to leave the games industry ever. Peter Moore, Phil Harrison, Peter Molyneux.

We can add Strauss Zenick to that list now.

The Take Two president was asked last night in the company’s Q3 financial call as to when we’d expect an formal announcement of Grand Theft Auto V. The answer?

“We’re not going to announce it. We’re not going to announce when we’re going to announce it. And we’re not going to announce the strategy about announcing it or about when we’re going to announce it either, or about the announcement strategy surrounding the announcement of the strategy.”

We love you Strauss. Don’t leave.
