When Space Stations disappear for 1,000 years you don’t expect the animals inside to have merged with the machinery to create stuff from nightmares! Michael enjoyed this week’s subject for Retro Game Friday back in the day. It’s time to enter Space Station Silicon Valley!
The three main characters in Rockstar’s new Grand Theft Auto V game do everything they can to break open the banks around Los Santos. But even they could probably not even imagine an $800 million dollar score. That’s how much GTAV made in sales in the first 24-hours it was available. That is a record not only for Rockstar and the GTA series, but also for parent company Take-Two Interactive. In fact, once the numbers are confirmed, it will likely be a game industry record.

If you thought Rockstar was all about street racing, drugs and thugs, you should see Red Dead Redemption’s Old West. A truly open world, it has more in common with Oblivion than GTA.

Civilization IV is one of the best strategy games ever created and is a worthy successor to the Civ crown. Just make sure you have the horsepower to play it.
