Westside! The brand new video game 'Grand Theft Auto III San Andreas' was launched today. The character of 'Maccer' is voiced by Shaun William Ryder himself as proved by the stellar castlist. By some bizarre coincidence (or genial marketing skill?) there happens to be a website purporting to be a famous Salfordian / Mancunian called, wait for it, Maccer. And there's a link to it at computerandvideogames.com. None of the other characters in the game, voiced by luminaries such as Ice-T and Samuel L. Jackson, appear to have a similar website. Go figure. Thanks to Moist.
