Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Expands Into The Play Store, Finally Wants To Call Android Home

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, perhaps surprisingly, began its life on a Nintendo platform: the original DS. Over half a year later, a version made its way over to the PlayStation Portable, and an iOS version appeared only a couple of months after that. Since then, nearly five years have passed, and Rockstar is finally sharing the game with the millions of Android users roaming the globe. The title can now be found in the Play Store.

Given the limitations of Chinatown Wars' original platform, the game hearkens back to the top-down view of the first two entries in the series.

[New Game] Go West, Young Man: Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Hits The Play Store For $6.99

We've already cruised through Liberty City and significantly lowered property values in Vice City, now it's time for a west coast vacation in San Andreas. The third Grand Theft Auto game of the PlayStation 2 era just landed on the Play Store in its blocky, polygonal, sandbox glory, and you can pick it up for a cool $6.99. No in-app purchases, no time-outs, just good old-fashioned Rockstar madness.

San Andreas takes the GTA action to California with a huge, fictional city amalgamating Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, and some rural backcountry that hadn't been seen in the series up to that point.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Coming To Android In December

Do you have an affinity for the early 90s? Rockstar Games is preparing to take you back in time with GTA: San Andreas, which is coming to Android in December. This isn't just a straight port, though. Rockstar is doing some work to make the experience of playing San Andreas (which is a massive game) better on a mobile device.

GTA: San Andreas was by far the biggest GTA game of the PS2 era, so the developers have reworked the checkpoints to make it easier to advance. The graphics have also gotten a boost with improved textures, draw distances, and shadows.

Rockstar Games Releases Grand Theft Auto V: The Manual, iFruit Nowhere To Be Found

Rockstar Games has gifted the Play Store with "the official manual app for Grand Theft Auto V." The whopping 181MB app (which debuts at version 0.0.1) has over a hundred pages of literature on the expansive new entry in the infamous franchise, containing information on the game's dynamics, local neighborhoods, activities, game features, and an interactive map to explore when taking a break from the real game (or while exploring in-game if you're a multitasker).

Rockstar reminds us that Grand Theft Auto V is "set in the biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created," making the manual that much more appealing to those wanting to enhance their experience with informational and dynamic content.

[New Game] Gameloft Releases Gangstar Vegas, Their Most GTA-Like GTA Clone Yet, For $6.99

If you haven't played Gangstar Rio, it's basically Gameloft's attempt to recreate a popular existing franchise. That describes about 95% of Gameloft's app library (I'll stop teasing them when they start having ideas of their own), but in this case, it's a riff on Grand Theft Auto, Saints Row, and the rest of the open-world crime genre. The sequel, Gangstar Vegas, was just published in the Play Store. Seven bucks gets you a bigger, better crime simulator, assuming your device is compatible and you've got a whopping 2.5GB of free space.

As the title implies, the new game moves the crime-driven story to Las Vegas, or at least simulacrum of the entertainment capital of the world.

Grand Theft Auto III Updated To Version 1.3 With Expanded Compatibility, Improved Xperia Play Controls, And More

Grand Theft Auto III, the car-stealing, open world game that came to Android in celebration of the series beginning ten long years ago, got a nice update today, bumping it to version 1.3. Besides the usual bug fixes, the GTA update expands the game's compatibility to ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer Prime and the Medion Lifetab, while also adding support for Gamestop's wireless game controller, and enhanced controls for other gamepads and Sony's Xperia Play.

If that's not enough, users can now install the game to an SD card, enable haptic feedback, and adjust video display settings for better performance. Here's a full look at the version 1.3 change log.

Rockstar Games And War Drum Studios Launch Grand Theft Auto: Vice City For Android [Updated x2]

Update: It turns out someone jumped the gun on this one, and the game isn't actually available just yet - which is why so many users are getting the "validation error." Rockstar is aware of the issue and posted a statement on their official blog:

We’re aware that some users have attempted to download Vice City: 10th Anniversary Edition from the Google Play Store and have experienced validation errors. Just to be clear: the game is not available for Android devices just yet, and if you’re seeing it listed on the Store then this is an error, and you shouldn’t attempt to download it.

[New Game] Gameloft Releases Gangstar Rio: City Of Saints, Scratch Your Sandbox Violence Itch For $7

No, it's not a gangster game starring the birds from that one CGI movie. Gangster Rio: City Of Saints is Gameloft's latest addition to its collection of "games that are sort of similar to bigger game franchises you know, but aren't terrible ripoffs either." Gangstar's latest sandbox takes place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and offers the player all manner of weaponry and missions to satisfy their id.

For a mobile game, Gangstar Rio looks very fully-featured. From Gameloft, and after over four months of being teased, we'd expect nothing less. The game includes over 60 missions, a variety of weapons, vehicles, and something called "the Explosive Football." Side note, Gameloft: "Explosive Football" needs to be its own game.  Make this happen.
