Grand Theft Auto V mod adds Just Cause 2’s ridiculous grappling hook

WARNING: This is a Grand Theft Auto V video, meaning it might be NSFW.

It’s video game science at its absolute best. Add a grappling hook to a video game, the game becomes exponentially more fun! Avalanche Studio got the grand idea a few years ago to not only add a grappling hook to a sandbox style video game but to build an entire game around one. Toss in an infinite supply of disposable parachutes, and Just Cause 2 was born.

That fun will live on this fall when Just Cause 3 is released, but in the meantime, those who own Grand Theft Auto V can experience it a little earlier with a brand new mod. The latest in a masterpiece string of mods for the game’s PC release, this one by JulioNIB, perfectly mimics each of Just Cause 2’s grappling hook functions.

Attach civilians to a car? No problem! Propel yourself to any attachable surface? Sure thing! Surf along the roof of cars? Absolutely! In fact, I’d say this mod actually improves on the mechanic because more than one line can exist at a time. Watch as Franklin attaches an entire army of police cars to a helicopter!

The mod even combines the grappling hook with the parachute, but Grand Theft Auto V’s physics are sadly not quite able to replicate the infinite gliding technique from Just Cause 2.

Like most mods that rip off other games’ ideas, the animation is rough, and the physics don’t make the mechanic look natural. However, there is more than enough trade-off here to explore the full potential of this mod. You can download it at JulioNIB’s blog.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
