    Grand Theft Auto V, probably the most anticipated title of the year (Gahars' Note: Not counting Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F, of course) will be released officially released next week. So, naturally, the marketing campaign has reached full swing. TV spots, billboard ads, and... an entire social network.

    Rockstar: Because why the hell not?

    Really, I think "Personal Space Invader" would be a better title, but that's neither here nor there.

    You can sign up the service right here, if you so desire. It's also connected to their Social Club service, so you'll have to connect the two accounts. Just an FYI.

    I appreciate Rockstar trying to make their games as "lifelike" as possible, but it's getting a tad bit ridiculous here. At this rate, GTA VI will just be a handgun and a note that reads, "Go wild, have fun, and fuck the American Dream." (It'll still receive 10/10s and win every GOTY award, of course.)

    It'd be cool if the PC version could connect to this website via Steam's browswer :P (supposing it all works out that way with a port)
