Lindsay Lohan Suing ‘Grand Theft Auto V’?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues,

Linsday LohanLindsay Lohan is allegedly planning to sue the makers of Grand Theft Auto V.

The 27-year-old actress has reportedly instructed her lawyers to start drawing up a lawsuit against video game producers, Rockstar Games, as she claims they created a character that looks and acts like her without her permission. The video game cover features a blonde woman holding a phone, who is later chased by paparazzi, and Lindsay claims she was the inspiration. Another sequence sees the character in a building that is believed to represent the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles, where Lindsay once lived and often partied at in the past.

Lindsay's legal representatives reportedly believe she could be awarded a large amount of compensation from the manufacturer, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

It was previously reported that the character was based on model Shelby Welinder, who previously told Nowgamer that she was hired by the video game producer through her agency to model for the advertisement last year. The character has also been compared to models Kate Upton and Candice Swanepoel in the past.

Petition for Grand Theft Auto 5 PC nears 50,000 signatures

Grand Theft Auto V PC

Mike Juliard's petition to get Rockstar to confirm the PC port of Grand Theft Auto 5 has surpassed 47,500 signatures, just 52,500 shy of his 100,000 goal.

From the petition: "GTA games have been a large part of so many peoples lives, and it’s a big shame not seeing the newest iteration of the game being released on the most powerful platform.”

One of the more pronounced reasons for a PC port is the mod community, as we've been privy to some amazing mods from GTA4 before it: “things like modifications have always been a HUGE part of PC gaming and modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have.”

According to Dan Houser of Rockstar, a PC port is "up for consideration," and this petition should do a lot to make Rockstar realize the PC audience's dedication to the franchise. Grand Theft Auto V is set for a Spring 2013 release.

Grand Theft Auto V trailer [Video]

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Action, PlayStation 3, Trailers, Xbox 360,

After months of speculation, Rockstar Games on Wednesday released a trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. In a little over a minute and 20 seconds, Rockstar sets the scene for the highly anticipated game and introduces what is presumably the main character.

The trailer answers a few questions. First of all, the game seems to be returning to the fictional state of San Andreas, specifically to Los Santos, a city based on Los Angeles. The narrator of the trailer also seems to be the main character. His voiceover suggests that he is a reformed criminal who has moved back to Los Santos to pursue a life on the straight and narrow.

He said he wanted to "retire ... from that line of work. Be a good guy for once. A family man." Gamers can assume that’s probably not going to be the case, as the trailer progresses into clips of car chases and holdups.

But this is all purely speculation at this point.
