If you are a subscriber to GameTap, you’ve likely watched a few of the reviews and other videos they’ve put out. Well, those days are over. The editorial team has been cut completely from the company which puts out reviews, previews, news, and videos.

The company has decided that they will put their entire focus on distributing games. So what does this mean for GameTap? Who knows, but it’s never good when a company has to cut employees because it likely means enough money isn’t coming into the bank.

New Radio Station for GTAIV

The game hasn’t even come out yet and there’s already a user generated radio station for Grand Theft Auto IV. Even Merz has been collecting songs from unsigned indie rock bands on the internet for the past month and has even added his own DJ dialogue to keep the station interesting. The set lasts about an hour so this should be enough to keep you entertained while your simulating cop murder, so would say Jack Thompson.

You probably won’t be able to have custom soundtracks in the PS3 version, but you will be able to stream the music on the PC and in the XMB on the Xbox 360. Anyway, download the MP3 from Evan’s blog at This is Not a Label, then pick up GTAIV at midnight tonight at Best Buy. Put the two together and have a wonderful day off from work tomorrow.
