Urgent Fury welcomes Patrick "Commander Fury" Gross back as Media Director and Co-Owner.

Patrick's first tenure with the popular tournament community began in 2006, and lasted until 2012, when he left to create Battle Chatter Online with his colleague and friend Bill Lavoy (now of Prima Games).
In September of 2013, he joined the development team at SOF Studios where he served as UI & Audio Designer for the "H-Hour: World's Elite" proof of concept demo. Upon completion of the demo, he was approached by Urgent Fury with an offer to return and decided it was time for a homecoming.
Once again, he will oversee all branches of media including audio, visual, & social media. And says he has a desire to expand Urgent Fury's current model. "I think that it's no secret that Urgent Fury has struggled with its identity over the last few years…mainly because the industry has changed & evolved so rapidly. But I'm confident that we know what we need to do to adapt, and what we need to do to be sure that Urgent Fury is in step with the industry".
He also says he plans on resuming production of the community favorite podcast Urgent Frequency. "UFreq was such a huge part of what I did here at Urgent Fury, and I have every intention of making sure that's still the case moving forward. In fact, the plan is to expand the amount of media content overall".
Urgent Fury CIO Shane Bell says he's excited about Patrick's return. "He was the very first staff member at Urgent Fury, Patrick is Urgent Fury. He understands how the community was built from the ground up and what direction we need to be heading. As our newest Director and Co-Owner, he will have full creative control with where we are taking “UF�. Not only with regard to our tournament events, but Urgent Fury as a whole. We cannot begin to express our excitement with what the future holds".

No GTA V until next year???

RockStar have made a habit of creating hugely successful games series which make a big impact in the industry and further increases their profile within the gaming community. While LA Noire transformed the entire complexion of animation and cinematography in console games, the Grand Theft Auto series continues to generate huge interest across the world. The latest instalment illustrates just how far technology and graphics have progressed over the years, with GTA V containing all the hallmarks and gameplay traits that made the game one of the most sought after titles in 2013.
 
While gamers can still run riot throughout the streets of Los Santos creating havoc or completing missions whilst trying to keep their head above water, GTA V integrates a number of fascinating decisions which not only affects the storyline, but also each of the three characters – Michael, Trevor and Franklin. Perhaps more prominent in the world of online gaming on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is the ability to play in online worlds where gamers can establish their own property portfolio and garage full of luxurious sports cars, whilst also completing missions, races and other modes with other gamers. It provides a wonderful dimension to a hugely successful game which has sold 32.5 million copies, with the number set to increase as GTA V is set to be re-mastered for next generation console owners.
 
Next gen gamers forced to wait
 
The significant advancement in graphics, processing speeds and technological capabilities between the current and next gen consoles creates greater potential for GTA V to include many more features, game modes and graphical detail that will provide an unbeatable gaming experience. Unfortunately, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will have to wait a little bit longer for a taste of GTA V in its revamped format; the release date was originally set for x, but there are strong rumours that the game is still in the development process which may take until 2015 to be completed. It could be due RockStar trying to avoid the considerable number of glitches and technical problems which significantly transformed the huge excitement and anticipation of a blockbuster game on release day into widespread disappointment and frustration. They made up for the numerous errors made by offering every player $500,000 to spend with their created online character; the gesture was generally well received by avid GTA gamers, but avoiding a repeat and taking more care with the game should ensure that next gen console gamers will have a glitch-free title to enjoy when it becomes available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC
 
What should we expect?
 
Once it was announced that GTA V was to be re-mastered for next generation consoles, the rumour mill has continued to produce potential possibilities that we could see on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. There can be no question that every aspect of the current generation title will remain intact, although the considerable step up in graphics and processing speeds allows for greater volume of game modes, activities and missions. The strongest rumour is that GTA enthusiasts will be able to enter the one and only casino on the game that is only included on the original title as part of the environment. Allowing gamers to enter the casino carries the potential to not only replicate the same enjoyment and gameplay experience that can be enjoyed on the River Belle casino online, but also provide an additional activity away from completing missions and earning more money that can be put towards properties, guns, cars or new clothes to look the part.
 
A growing number of the gaming community are calling for RockStar to include a zombie mode onto GTA V to provide Michael, Trevor and Franklin with a new form of enemy to overcome in their bid for fame and fortune. RockStar certainly have the ability to incorporate zombies into a hugely successful games series, as proved with the Undead Nightmare instalment for Red Dead Redemption; doing the same with GTA V would appease consumer demand and create a more enhanced gameplay experience to blow gamers away.
