Check Out This Impressive Remake Of Terminator 2 Using GTA V

In a truly impressive feat of machinima, someone has recreated each of the major scenes from Terminator 2: Judgment Day in Grand Theft Auto V and edited them into an hour-long movie.

YouTube user Kramer's Media dubbed the actual movie audio over choreographed gameplay from GTA V. A few scenes are cut, given the original film is 2 hours and 17 minutes, but the most memorable scenes, like the highway shootout, the Cyberdyne standoff, and the finale in the steel mill, are all there.

Developer IllFonic Responds To Friday The 13th's Rocky Launch, Addresses Issues

The asymmetric, multiplayer survival horror game Friday The 13th launched just a couple days ago, but it's been rife with problems. Players struggled to get online and faced problems with the party system.

"Few of us have slept since Thursday, but I wanted to take a moment to inform all of you as to what's going on with everything," writes IllFonic. "We're having global issues, on all platforms (PC/XB1/PS4)."

What do you have planned for the holiday weekend? Let us know in the comments below!
