GTA Trilogy PC Pulled After Dev Notes and Missing Music Found

The GTA Trilogy has been a total disaster so far. It also has been pulled from the Rockstar store and cannot be bought on PC.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition should be a slam dunk. Why wouldn't it be? All you have to do is make three timeless games prettier, throw in some upgrades here and there, and watch the money trucks roll in. Easy, right? Well, if you're Rockstar, no. For instance, the Rockstar game launcher also went down yesterday on launch, making a single-player unplayable for some. That's just to start, and it's fair to say that right now this game is worse than Warcraft 3: Reforged

What has been found with GTA Trilogy PC?

Well, the uncompiled main.scm with the original developer's comments has been found, which means we now know that Prawn Island was originally called Porn Island. Nice. The in-game music-some of which was cut due to licensing issues-was left virtually untouched and only disabled by a script, which is a big no-no. The only track left out of Vice City, for instance, is Track 03, Billie Jean from Flash FM.

So yeah, that's two for the price of one for Rockstar. No wonder GTA Trilogy PC has been pulled, and it makes me wonder how this could've been missed before its launch. Who knows, and there's still a lot more that's wrong with the GTA Trilogy.

What else is wrong with GTA Trilogy?

Where to begin? Well, all you have to do is cut content, make the graphics somehow worse, and have terrible framerates if you're unfortunate enough to buy the full-priced Switch version. Apparently the brightness and contrast settings also do absolutely nothing as well, which is pretty dark. 

Don't forget about the spelling mistakes that are somehow everywhere now. It's almost like Rockstar wanted to ruin this remaster on purpose. It's not even based on the original games-it's based on the mobile port. Who approved this?
