Grand Theft Auto is as synonymous with gaming as Mario or Halo.
The series has spanned many years, consoles, and times, and we’re here to showcase that.
Grand Theft Auto V looks absolutely gorgeous, and more so if we take a step back in time and catch a brief glimpse of how the series has evolved.
Below, you’ll find a short screenshot comparison between the most recent major games, with future comparisons arriving in the coming months as we get closer to release.
The leftmost column is Grand Theft Auto III, the center being Grand Theft Auto IV, and the rightmost being Grand Theft Auto V.
Catch a glimpse of how the series has progressed!

OXCGN’s Second Look FUSE Preview
by Arthur Kotsopoulos

Back in December we got the chance to test out FUSE in both a single player and co-operative player capacity in the form of ‘Echelon‘.
Whilst the game retains the same high octane gameplay we first witnessed, this time around we were treated to a proper hands on with the games first 3 missions.
FUSE has been specifically developed with co-op in mind so it was only appropriate to start the game with 4 player co-op where each player chose their respective character.
Difficulty is treated like any other game played in co-op i.e; Borderlands 2 is scaled accordingly.
If you were to play the game on your own and leap between the other 3 characters, you won’t find the same challenge as you would with 3 other human players.
It was clear from the get go that the enemy AI adapt to your playing style and will enlist an array of tactics on the battlefield to complete their mission, eliminating you.

Earlier last week EA Games Australia invited OXCGN down to their Sydney office to check out the latest build of the Insomniac developed title, FUSE.
With a crazy 4-5 hour hands on preview either in solo or co-op we also got the chance to interview Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games.
With two sessions of FUSE under my belt I had a general knowledge of the game and how it implements co-op as well as what it does differently to other co-op shooters available on the market.
Sit back and enjoy the read of my interview with Ted Price which whilst short was sweet and quite informative.

OXCGN’s Star Trek: The Video Game Review
Dammit Jim, I’m a movie tie-in, not an innovative game!

Hollywood seems to be stuffing us full of sequels, prequels and re-boots these days. Most of them are terrible, but once in a while a good one sneaks through. Star Trek was one such successful re-boot, and now we have the sequel rapidly approaching.
Simply titled Star Trek: The Video Game, the game was released as a tie in to the new movie, Star Trek: Into Darkness. It is set sometime between the two movies and promised a whole lot for Star Trek fans. It promised, but did it deliver?
Well the uninspired title gives you a hint, unfortunately.
