Daily Gaming News – 29/10/2012

October 29, 2012

At Rocket Chainsaw we’re always looking for ways to improve our distribution of content. We strive to make it easier for you, readers both old and new, to catch up on events and news with minimal fuss and effort. The modern world moves fast, and we know that between conference calls, filling spreadsheets, picking up the kids, and mowing the lawn, you probably don’t have the time to scroll through pages of news.

So we’re happy to introduce our newest feature: a daily compendium of recent news. Instead of news trickling across the Rocket Chainsaw front page, you can all look forward to all the daily buzz (announcements, trailers, gossip, etc) organised into a singular, end-of-day post for you to read once you knock off from work, get home from school, when your partner in life/crime hits the sack. Whatever suits.

We’ll kick things off with some of the more interesting news to come out of Monday 29th October, as well as some we’ve missed over the last couple of days. If you have any thoughts or suggestions on this new feature, please do not hesitate to let us know.


  • NEWS: Two interesting listings have popped up on the official ESRB website, rating both Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for PlayStation 3. Could we be seeing a new HD remake compilation?
  • NEWS: Could we be seeing Grand Theft Auto V early next year? Yep, if these in-store promotional images on All Games Beta are to be believed. They indicate GTAV would appear in the US during Spring, so sometime between March and May.
