Vice City recreated in GTA5
It’s been nearly 13 years since Grand Theft Auto: Vice City came out, and still we have pastel-drenched flashbacks of its amazing ’80s world. But if you have Grand Theft Auto V on PC, you’ll be able to take a spin around an updated version of the titular terrain thanks to a player created mod.
You can catch a first glimpse at the work-in-progress above, which lacks essential elements like other people, vehicles, and that fabulous era-appropriate soundtrack – but the heavy sunset and familiar locales are already bringing back all those old feelings.

Spotify CEO’s Apple Music response
If yesterday’s Apple Music reveal left you a little underwhelmed, know that you’re not alone.

Mega Man Legacy Collection revealed
Capcom has turned more of its attention towards re-releases of classic games of late – case in point, three of its four games being shown at E3 next week are remastered editions.

The Martian trailer
Here’s the first trailer for The Martian, a surely harrowing film about an astronaut presumed dead and left behind during an aborted mission to Mars – who must then survive upon the harsh terrain.
It’s from Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, which gives it a serious amount of automatic cred, plus it has a rather impressive cast beyond Matt Damon as the titular spaceman. The Martian is expected to hit cinemas this November.
