A clever hacker has found a way to let R2-D2 rampage through the streets of Liberty City by modding Grand Theft Auto IV.

The video comes from YouTube user taltigolt, and he has made R2-D2 a terrifying force of destruction. He makes Nico look like your average gangster. You can download the mod here.

Wow, what a bunch of crazy tangents we go off on in this podcast. I’m warning you guys, we talk a little bit about some late night Cinemax stuff this time around. We don’t get graphic or anything, but it’s surely a show for the books! Of course, there’s way more talk about Nintendo, as usual. Rumors and facts, interviews and more!

ImageIt seems that GameStop plans on offering AT&T data plans for mobile devices under a service called GameStop Mobile, according to information posted on their website. The information has since been pulled, but not before our friends at Engadget reported on it.

So, as long as GameStop Mobile continues to not be a reality, we will continue reporting the information we’ve yet to learn about the service. Hypothetically-speaking, GameStop Mobile would require AT&T-compatible or unlocked devices. The service would probably include pay-as-you-go five dollar plans and $55 monthly plans, which would include unlimited voice and text and 500MB of data, or 1GB of data for data-only device users.

The someday-news of GameStop Mobile would make more sense out of the company’s recent addition of Android devices to their trade-in lists.

JoystiqGameStop offers, then removes AT&T mobile data plans originally appeared on Joystiq on Sat, 19 May 2012 22:30:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

A fluffy new item theme has launched in the FarmVille marketplace, taking us up into the clouds and sky with items in a “Cloud City” theme. These items come in plenty of different colors, ranging from plain white to rainbow and everything in between. If you’re looking to add some truly unique items to your many FarmVille Farms, why not have a look at the items that are now available?


Dawn Tree – 6 Farm Cash
Dusk Tree – 12 Farm Cash
Sunset Tree – 8 Farm Cash
Sunrise Tree – 14 Farm Cash


Jackal – 2.5 million coins
Cloud Horse – 26 Farm Cash
Pilot Duck – 16 Farm Cash
Cloud Sheep – 16 Farm Cash

The Cloud Sheep here is especially neat, as it appears to float.


Floating Cottage – 15 Farm Cash


Lightning Cloud – 3 Farm Cash
Lightning Bird – 14 Farm Cash
Cloud Topiary – 20,000 coins
Kite Goat – 12 Farm Cash

To be clear, the Kite Goat is just a decorative animal – it can’t be harvested or mastered. In addition, the Cloud Topiary will float and animate when placed on your farm.

Avatar Clothing

Cloud Costume – 4 Farm Cash

These items may have only just arrived, but they’re already on their way out. If you’re interested in owning any of these items, you’ll need to go shopping within the next 11 days (as of this writing), before these items disappear, forcing you out of the clouds and back down to Earth. We’ll make sure to let you know if additional items launch in this Cloud City theme, so keep checking back!

What do you think of these set of Cloud City items? Will you buy any of them for your farms? Sound off in the comments.

With this week’s launch of the Taxi Stand system in CityVille, that allows you to send taxis to businesses to collect their profits without using energy, we’ve also seen the release of a new goal series in the game that will introduce you to the feature and reward you with some fun prizes along the way. There are only three goals to complete in all, but some might take you quite a while to actually complete. Here’s a guide to finishing them all!

Take the Wheel

  • Place and Complete Taxi Stand
  • Get 12 Taxi Receipts
  • Use Taxis to instant collect from a business

Again, you can check out our full guide to building the Taxi Stand for a refresher on how all of this works. When you complete this goal, you’ll receive a “Hailing Taxi” decoration.

Upgrade the Dispatch

  • Upgrade Taxi Stand to Level 2
  • Instantly Collect from 12 Businesses
  • Get 40 Taxi Receipts

As you are limited to the number of businesses you can collect from (with a taxi) per day, this goal will likely take you a few days to complete. Along the way, you’ll be able to earn the Taxi Receipts by either asking your friends to send them to you or by receiving them at random when collecting from the Gas Station(s) in your town. You’ll receive a Taxi Stand decoration (not to be confused with the functional, upgradeable Taxi Stand) when you complete this goal. It comes with a 5% payout bonus.

Let’s Shift Gears

  • Upgrade Taxi Stand to Level 3
  • Instant Collect from 24 Businesses
  • Harvest 18 Corn

For completing this final goal, you’ll earn 100 XP, which is decidedly less exciting than limited edition decorations. Still, these goals are more time consuming than difficult, so why not give them your best to complete them? Good luck in doing just that!

What do you think of these Taxi Stand goals? Will you complete all three, or just the first two to receive their limited edition rewards? Sound off in the comments.

With CastleVille‘s recent obsession with dragons, it only makes sense for the game’s official forums to get in on the act by offering Crowns to those players willing to show off their dragons in their Kingdoms. In the game’s new “Dragon Invasions Image Contest,” you’ll need to simply snap a screenshot of your Kingdom that contains at least one of the game’s dragons: a Gloom Dragon, Ember or a Baby Dragon, and then upload it to the contest thread on the game’s forums.

After May 27, Zynga will choose the top 10 entries, which will then be voted upon by players to determine the grand prize winner. The top place prize is 200 Crowns and the knowledge that the game’s Facebook Fan page will sport your image for all of the game’s fans to see. Two other random entrants will receive 40 Crowns each.

All told, this is another one of those contests that require very little work from you, but could pay off big in the end. We wish you the best of luck if you enter this contest yourself!

What would you do if you won 200 free Crowns in CastleVille? Would you go on a shopping spree, or would you save them for future use? Sound off in the comments.
