GTA V Future Holiday DLC Ideas

I love the holiday dlc’s except for the temporary nature of the items. That being said I have some ideas for a few holidays:

4TH OF JULY: Fireworks shows during from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm on the Fourth of July. This would be like the snow day on Christmas last year. I know that many GTA players live in other countries but GTA V does take place in America.

CLOTHING (Patriotic attire):

  • Uncle Sam hats
  • Uncle Sam’s red, white and blue tale coat and pant.
  • Military uniforms (maybe Revolutionary War era)
  • Lincoln’s stove pipe hat
  • Tri-corner hat


  • Uncle Sam mask
  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Abe Lincoln
  • George Washington
  • Richard Nixon (it is GTA)


  • Parade float (self-propelled of course)


  • Musket (does shotgun level damage or more but has long reload time)

LABOR DAY: Maybe another day of fireworks?

CLOTHING (Work clothes):

  • Overalls
  • Pest Control overalls
  • Hazmat suit (over the top but it is GTA)
  • Hard hats
  • Fire fighters uniform
  • Police uniform


  • Pest control gas masks from single player


  • The ability to BUY AND STORE utility vehicles
  • Police cars
  • Ambulance/Paramedics vehicle
  • Cherry picker truck
  • Etc.


  • Sledgehammer
  • Fire axe

HALLOWEEN/DIA DE LOS MUERTOS: Spooky atmospherics. Maybe ghosts floating around town.

CLOTHING (Halloween costumes):

  • Ghost
  • Witch
  • Monster
  • Frankenstein’s monster
  • Dracula
  • DIA DE LOS MUERTOS skeleton


  • Ghost
  • Monster (additional to what’s already available)
  • Witch
  • Dracula
  • Frankenstein’s monster
  • DIA DE LOS MUERTOS motif skull


  • The ability to BUY AND STORE the Romero Hearse
  • A monster mobile ala the Munsters’ hot rod


  • Scythe
  • Chainsaw

EA and Microsoft In Bed Together With Another Game

In an update to my earlier post about Titanfall not being released on the PS4 I have also found out that the first DLC for Battlefield 4 will be a timed exclusive to the XBone. Of course EA gave the same BS reasons as before and it’s all the more reason to boycott these pricks.

Titanfall: Boycott EA and Respawn

If you own a Playstation 4 or haven’t been living in a cave for the last few years, you probably know already that Respawn Entertainment and EA Games will not be releasing their new game Titanfall on the PS4. The stated reason for this is that since Respawn is a new company they want to put all of their efforts into making a quality game for their first outing. They added that trying to write a game for two different consoles would take away their focus on creating such a game. So they refuse to create a PS4 version for this release.

I say BS!

First of all, they are already releasing the title on two different platforms: PC and XBone. Second, the new generation of consoles are the closest together in terms of hardware and software that they have ever been . We are not dealing with the allegedly hard to program for PS3 OS. Both the PS4 and Xbone now use the same x86 architecture that PC’s use. This former disparity was probably the biggest hurdle in the past to porting games from one system to the next. EA also said that it is about “marketing and loyalty”. I’m not sure why they feel such loyalty to Microsoft but read the next paragraph for the real story.

The real reason is that Microsoft paid EA to keep the game exclusive to the XBone.

So what can PS4 gamers do short of buying an Xbox One? Well I’m glad you asked. My plan will actually save you money and stick it to the man. Regardless of how “loyal” EA is to Microsoft they are still a corporation who value profits above all else. My proposal is that PS4 gamers boycott ALL EA games for the foreseeable future. No Madden, NCAA, Mass Effect, Battlefield (let’s face it, BF4 is broken now anyway), Dead Space, etc. Also if you have a blog,Twitter account, Facebook page, whatever, raise your voice about the huge F.U. that EA and Respawn have sent to us.

If we as a buying block refuse to buy EA and Respawn games we can force them to revisit their decision to screw us and maybe we can change their minds. If they signed an exclusivity contract with MS, then tough for them. Maybe next time they won’t be so “loyal” to Microsoft.

Dr. Who turns 50

Well I watched the “Day of the Doctor” last night and I was thrilled. Tom Baker Rules!
The whole status quo of the history of the Doctor seems to have been turned on its head. The fact that Tom Baker shows up as the curator at the end makes me wonder about what actually happens to a Time Lord when he regenerates. Do they go to the Time Lord retirement home? And of course we now know the events of the Last Day of the Time War.

I really wish that BBC America had seen fit to air “The Night of the Doctor” minisode so that I could have seen the events that led to Paul McGann’s Doctor’s regeneration into John Hurt’s War Doctor. I was able to watch it on YouTube, however.

I am glad that Galifrey is finally back on the map, so to speak. I hope that this means more cosmic stories. I like the historical stories, but I’ve always preferred the stories that existed on a universal scale. Superscience is just too cool.

Finally I was so glad to see David Tennant back in his “sand shoes” (as John Hurt’s Doctor calls them). Of the “new” doctors he has always been my favorite.

The episode ends on a suitably epic note. The 13 Doctors all fighting to save Galifrey was spectacular. We even get a glimpse of the new Doctor (or at least his eyes). And something Tom Baker’s character alluded to is that we might get see more previous “Doctors” in the future.

So in the immortal words of the Doctor “Galifrey Stands”. Allons-y !
