The Rapid Rise and Fall of What Could Have Been the Greatest Grand Theft Auto Ever

GrandTheftAuto5Banner

 

One of the biggest anticipations of the previous year was the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto Five (GTA5), sequel to GTA4, one of Rockstar’s bigger snafus. With a barely-interesting plotline, characters so annoying you silently wish a mission was coming that involved their death, and vehicle physics so laughable that stealing a nice sports car wasn’t really much better than any random muscle car and helicopters seemed to have a mind of their own, a suicidal mind. But despite those failures, there was still a strong anticipation for GTA5. Even I let my hopes rise a little for this game, and it did deliver, but only partially. Part of this game is legitimately polished and fun to play, the other half is, in my opinion, one of the biggest wastes in potential for a game this year.

Finger VS Axes, Free Game Now on Android!

Brutal Studio just today, has officially released a hilarious action game featuring YOUR FINGER VS Axes, now available for your android phone or tablet. FREE!

The game is simple; keep your finger pressed at all times, avoid enemy attacks, and strike em’ down! Repeat the process and try to clear all levels. The game features stunning art, a varied game play and a humorous storyline. Not only that, they even added some major badass/awesome weapons and stylish outfits that you can optionally buy using in-game coins, which can either be accumulated by various game actions or purchased instantly with a credit card, but you aren’t afraid of a challenge….right?

The game also features a daily gift, for those returning players and several achievements to make it more challenging! And if you’ve completed the game and want more, try completing the game at Hard Mode or even Extreme Mode. Enough challenges and game playing time for all players.
