So far we know Take-Two Interactive (the parent company of Rockstar Games) registered several domain names which sound like parody products to coincide with Grand Theft Auto 5. DeviceMag found some more information I’ll try to summarize here. In a very long, roundabout way, @supererogatory discovered that “Rush” is probably the code name for GTA V. The game is also rumored to be set in or around Hollywood.
DeviceMag also found a possible character list for “Rush” posted by randrews. That character list is after the jump and includes three FBI agents, a stereotypical hillbilly, a cult leader, a soccer mom, a swinger, a pothead, a publicist, a car dealer/loanshark, a paranoid guy, an IT guy, some hippies, a “Beverly Hills party boy”, a mobster, a Chinese translator, and somebody named Simon who is referred to but not described. I hope Simon shoots everyone else on the list except the Chinese translator and the IT guy. I might need them.
38 – Annoying, wise cracking, highly successful FBI agent. In great shape. Does triathlons, drinks low cal beer, but still has a sense of humor.
25 Young Mexican American FBI agent, caught between a few mob bosses. Very clean cut
23 – Moronic, almost inbred and creepy white trash hillbilly. Very naive but in a creepy ‘it’s only incest sort of way’
Welsh monk / cult leader / yoga teacher – 50, very lithe, very into exploring your personal tension through gripping massage. Needs Welsh accent.
Neurotic soccer mom, home maker, 48, anxious and addled on pain killers. Very angry at neighbor MRS Bell.

56 – publicist for an actress known as America’s newest sweetheart who just so happens to love animals, orphans, drugs and sex. He’s always trying to hide her latest indiscretion.
Kevin De Silva:
