    ImageLodge... (Did I miss something?)

    I may do somewhere, but it was written in PHP back in 2005, with some updates done a year or two after. I wasn't that great a programmer back then. Basically, it was all really old (and bad) PHP code, it would need a complete rewrite really if it were to be used again these days, no point working with the old code. As for the domain name it expired recently, it's too late for me to renew now, just checked the WHOIS and it's pending reactivation so I'm not really sure what's going on with it, I don't recall seeing that status before especially when I wasn't the one renewing. If you're serious about an image hosting website I'd probably just say start fresh, with a short .com name (I also had imgvault.com but never got round to relaunching with that). Imagelodge domain wouldn't have brought you any useful traffic, you'd just have a ton of 404 errors from all the hotlinked and now broken links.

    LifeInvader.com Launches

    Back in 2011, we reported on some domains Rockstar had registered that we thought might be for GTA V. More recently, you may have noticed lifeinvader.com appearing on the official GTAV website, confirming our suspicions that it may be used for a teaser site. Today, Rockstar have launched an actual website for Lifeinvader, an obvious parody of Facebook. Clicking the logo or visiting the homepage will take you to a random profile on the site. You can login to the site using your Social Club details and "stalk" people there and comment, exactly as you do on Facebook. Many of the profiles contain screenshots, so spend some time browsing around and see what you can find. Interesting to see that you can stalk businesses for deals, we're hoping this actually applies in-game as it's an excellent point of integration.
  5. As everyone is aware, the launch of GTA Online did not go as smoothly as we all hoped, thankfully though, Rockstar have been working around the clock to get all the issues straightened out. After three patches, things seem to be looking much, much better now, but by no means flawless. Today, Rockstar have announced that they will be giving everyone who has played GTA Online this month a free GTA$ 500,000 bonus to their account, as an apology for not being able to handle the sheer popularity of the game. To maintain some sort of balance in the game with this huge injection of cash to everyone, Rockstar will be making two deposits of GTA$ 250,000 spread over a couple of weeks. There will also be a fourth patch released to facilitate the receipt of these additional funds, as well as to fix a few remaining connectivity issues. Full details on the Newswire.

      They just keep rebooting every familiar franchise, just saw the trailer for Robocop, I dunno about such change ups, other then the technology for film making give them a new look, but the acting?!? That can't be improved upon much! haha

    ImageLodge... (Did I miss something?)

    I chose to close it down, for a variety of reasons. For a period of about 6 weeks or so I did have a big message up on the site urging people to download a backup of their images as after this they would be gone forever. Sorry you didn't see that. The majority of good users of it were infrequent at best. Much of the frequent usage became hosting for random pornographic images. Basically I didn't want to be associated with it any more. It was never a very good image hosting site anyway, it was simpler than the likes of Imageshack, but it could never compete with today's giants like Imgur, which offers far superior image hosting to anywhere else. In addition to this, because of the type of content it had and the traffic coming from mostly third world countries, it was not economically viable for me to run. I was not able to earn any income from it which meant it was literally wasting my money away on the storage/bandwidth just so random people in third world countries could host some porn. So yeah I'm afraid it's gone for good. I did keep a full backup of the site for about a month or two after I shut it down, in case something like this happened, but I've since deleted that as no one ever brought it up. You are too late I'm afraid.

  11. The Beach Bum update for GTA Online is now available with the latest title update (1.06) available to both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 users. The title update also fixes a whole bunch of exploits and bugs in the game, and also offers some welcome improvements. Racers who regularly race 'Down The Drain' will be pleased to know that the cardboard boxes that would sometimes wreck your car causing you to lose the race have now been removed. Other welcome improvements include the fact that idiots driving their cars into your stationary tank will no longer be committing "insurance fraud" causing you to have to pay out money to them for destroying their car. Below are the full details of the update straight from Rockstar: Let us know in the comments if the changes have improved GTA Online for you.

      Reported this on GTAChronicles as well, with important details from several news TV sources. I was in shock when I first heard

  13. Wow, bet some of you never expected this! Many thought that the sheer size and scale of 2004's GTA: San Andreas (in comparison to GTA III and Vice City) would mean that it would be unlikely that we ever saw a release to follow its predecessors on iOS and Android. But today, Rockstar have announced that the game that some describe as the best of that decade, will indeed be coming to select iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices in December. Great to see iOS controller support being added too, that is sure to raise the profile of this new capability in iOS 7. We absolutely cannot wait to get our hands on this!

      Can't be, just an optical illusion, after the slimming down of both previous generations? Well, admittedly, the Slim 360 is not that much leaner of a machine. I still want it in white though
