Due To Expired Music Rights, Rockstar Pulls David Bowie And More From ‘Grand Theft Auto IV’

 

Rockstar Games is removing a number of songs in Grand Theft Auto IV due to music licensing issues, as a pretty-large patch for the game started to go live this past weekend, resulting in eliminating A LOT of songs across all the radio stations. For example, the Vladivostok FM station was predicted to be particularly hard hit, and that turns out to be very true.  In the place of some of the missing tracks, Rockstar will add a few more newer, lesser-known Russian songs, mostly by Seryoga.

Here’s a ‘Grand Theft Auto’ Fan Film Made with LEGO!

Man, it SURE has been a while since The PractitioNERD posted any sort of a LEGO-related story, but I’m glad we could get back on that 1000-piece LEGO train (toot-TOOOOT). With the success of the theatrical LEGO films (The LEGO Movie & The LEGO Batman Movie) and the unlikelyhood of a movie based on the Grand Theft Auto video game series (likely due to the rights to the movie title; THANKS Ron Howard), it’s very evident that these two brands will never officially mesh together.

So, Can ‘Grand Theft Auto: Taiwan’ Be a Thing?

I know, I know, I know what you’re probably saying. But Montez, we already have Sleeping Dogs! Yeah, well Sleeping Dogs IS an awesome game, but that takes place in Hong Kong, not Taiwan. As of now, there is no such video game as Grand Theft Auto Taiwan, but as this live action clip showcases, there probably should be. C’mon Rockstar… Continue reading So, Can ‘Grand Theft Auto: Taiwan’ Be a Thing?
