Watch R2-D2 tear up Liberty City in Grand Theft Droid

We know how it goes: You're replaying GTA IV for the 87th time, a little ho-hum about blowing up yet another limo full of gangsters, and you wonder "How can I spice this up?" Might we suggest playing as Luke Skywalker's handy Astromech droid?

With a little help from his/her friends, Swedish YouTube user Taltigolt has created a software patch that'll allow you to roll through the streets of Liberty City as R2-D2, mowing down pedestrians and vaporizing traffic to your heart's content.

You can download the "mod" here ... but we take no responsibility for anything that happens to your hardware. If you want to trust wacky Swedish geeks, that's your business.
