Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas turns 10 Years today




Can you believe it? GRAND THEFT AUTO: SAN ANDREAS TURNED 10 YEARS OLD TODAY.

As one of the three main GTA games released during the sixth generation of console gaming, this game literally helped Rockstar Games signature sandbox open-world game evolve, and was heavily influenced by early 90's lifestyle, popculture, and music.

Set in the fictional state of San Andreas, the story centers around Carl "CJ" Johnson - an African-American gang member from Los Santos who returns home following the murder of his mother. Reuniting with his family and friends, CJ finds he has to take matters into his own hands to clean things up and remake his destiny to escape all the dirt and corrupt elements hounding everything around his life. As such, the player guide the character through numerous story-based missions and objectives, and eventually explores the vast state of San Andreas, which is divided into three main parts - Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas.

Someone even made this tribute trailer just in time for the anniversary... Which is just COOL.

GTA San Andreas 10th Anniversary Tribute Trailer

Released originally for the Playstation 2, GTA San Andreas eventually got ported to other consoles and PC, and is also getting an HD re-release now just in time for its 10th Anniversary for current generation consoles.

Truly, this game is a classic that definitely is worth revisiting for those who enjoy mission based games and sandbox anything goes gameplay.

Honoring Batman co-creator Bob Kane on his 99th Birthday


Today is a very special day for Batfans to honor and remember worldwide, as October 24th marks the birthdate of the Caped Crusader's late and great co-creator - comic book artist extraordinaire Robert Kahn... Better known by his legally changed name of Bob Kane!


Best known for conceptualizing the character who would become The Dark Knight based on influences from Zorro and Leonardo Da Vinci's work on the  ornithopter, Bob would be paired together with writer Bill Finger, the latter of which would suggest giving his brainchild the iconic cape and cowl that would become the character's trademark look. 


Working together, the pair finally debuted their efforts with the origin of "The Bat-Man" in Detective Comics #27, which was released in May of 1939 and became a critical and commercial success. Since then Batman has become a cultural phenomenon, and his influence and constant evolution through the years has transformed the DC Comics character into a legend, which is honored this year as well with the celebration of the hero's 75th Anniversary.


While Kane passed away on November 3, 1998, his legacy lives on in the character he helped bring to life, which continues to popularize and entertain millions worldwide.

As such, this writer, blogger, multimedia artist, and cosplayer shall remember the man with this collage in honor of his nameday.


Happy 99th Birthday, Bob Kane!
