It looks awesome. I still play GTA IV for fun, i would play SA but the controls are awkward with a 360 controller.


Really? I thought the GTA IV controls were awful. I want to piss about and go 100mph and then do a sharp right turn. GTA IV you go 100mph, try to turn/brake and go straight into a wall and launch 500 feet away.

so far the world and graphics are looking ****ing awesome, assuming they will fine tune the controls some more this game is going to be great.


i hope they will bring back stuff to mess around with. like monster trucks and shit like that.. and IMO the car handling in gta IV is one of the best in gaming so far once you perfect your controller skills a bit, but hope they will improve the feel and graphics when going off-road.. (not that there was much offroading in IV's boring map..)

i always thought a combination of SA environment and GTA IV graphics/handling would be the perfect GTA but it looks like they might be doing even better than that.. lets hope it doesn't turn out to be a disappointment... but i have faith in Rockstar it will be uber awesome

No, i meant that the button layout just didn't translate too well, maybe i just need to configure it, but the first and only time i tried SA on 360, i tried to do a drive by and ended up crashing into the sea because i had to concentrate on about three different buttons, two joysticks, and a shoulder button at the same time.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

So keen for this game dammit!
Almost a year since the game was announced and no release date. The next Game Informer shall make everything okay!

Rockstar a looking to the public for multiplayer/Social Club idea. If you have any good ideas you should give them a shout.

RELEASE DATE lS 12/31/2012. PRE-ORDERING THIS NOW.

Man I'm so fucking excited. Just googled it to see if there was any news, and saw I could pre-order it.

It's been a year (Already?) since the first trailer was released. I'm ready for GTA V bitches.

Pre-ordered it for in-store pickup too. I'm going to get so drunk on new-years and play this.

So glad it's San Andreas this time and not boring Liberty City. It's looking seriously awesome, and I hate to bitch, but I wish that you could actually customize your character's appearance (height, face, hair, skin, etc.) and not just clothing. They have yet to make a character look vaguely like me, and I donno, I think it's cool seeing a little me running around doing crazy shit that I'd never do in real life.

Rockstar always make awesome games but they never allow the player to do that. I mean, it'd bump the game up a point or two for me, even if there were certain parameters to prevent the character from looking completely ridiculous.

All that aside, I'm sure the shooting controls will be greatly improved, as that always seems to be an issue with the previous games.

I disagree

They make the story around the character. Take Red Dead Redemption for example. That game wouldn't have been the same if you could make John some 400 pound Asian guy with a mohawk. Or a girl for that matter.

Yeah, I agree with that statement. I understand gender plays a pretty big role in how a story plays out (and race to a lesser degree), because being able to choose the gender and having a catch-all kind of story with maybe a few modified responses to accomodate your character's gender can make a story more impersonal, but I still think if certain parameters exist within character creation, that should prevent you having a ridiculous looking character whose appearance doesn't fit the story.

Los Santos seems a lot more interesting than Liberty City and the extra little things sound awesome so far (diving, planes, etc.). 3 protagonists also seems really cool and a new thing to add into the series, and i'm liking the sound of the driving being "like a racing game". definitely looking forward to this one, hopefully it goes back to what made GTA fun in the first place. also we need some fun CHEATS, that's something GTA 4 failed with.

WOW that's gay. Faking dates in order to get pre-orders? Oh well it didn't cost me anything so I'm just going to keep it and pick it up in store when it comes out.

I see where you're coming from. Some facial features, hair color, ect would probably be fine.

It really depends on the game I guess. GTA would be better suited for that than say, RDR

I'm just so glad that there will actually be some COUNTRYSIDE to explore. Not just boring skyscrapers everywhere. And man, look at those graphics. *checks pants for stains*
#98
oh it's also cool how the 2 other protagonists do their own thing while you aren't playing as them and you can just switch over right to them and be in the area they're in. good if you get lost in the woods or something

Wait till the PS4 or whatever comes out in a couple years then upgrade, the difference will blow yer mind.

I used to be in your predicament. Then I got an 360. Haven't looked back since.

Also, not sure if I want to pre-order this or not. GTA IV is meh to me, can't stand the driving in that game.

Yes.

PC is not an option for pre-order. So, I'm guessing it's not going to be released at least not right away. However, IF it does get announced for the same release date I may cancel my order for Xbox.

PC + PS2 is the correct gaming setup

anything else is just ridiculous

No PC version at release They will probably end up releasing a crappy port after six months.

GTA IV was horribly optimised on PC.

I think I'll probably buy a 360 when I can afford it, games look so good now, haha.

I would do it just because you can get a ton of games for dirt cheap since they've been out for years now.

I'm in the same situation.

My only contact with modern games occurs when I go hang out at some friend's place where there is a modern console/gaming pc.

The main thing stopping me getting one was that my TV was awfull, so I think I might get one soon. I just wish there was a Star Wars Battlefront 3.

I can't wait, but first I will have to get a new computer, it barely handled GTA4 on lowest graphic settings.
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.
#114
This is gonna be awesome.
Just.
I don't like the protagonists.
3 protagonists and they're all old, bald, or black.
No one I can relate to.
METAL!

GTA is so much more than drive-bys and killing hookers. The stories are always genuinely interesting, with good characters. I've neverr played a game in the series I didn't like, even the top-down ones have their appeal.

I don't think they "faked" a release date to get pre-orders. They just don't know the exact date so they used a placeholder. You should be happy, it's coming out before December!

Although when my friend went to pre-order his copy, the Gamestop dude was CONVINCED it was coming out December 31st because it's what was printed on the receipt. Even though all the posters (and Rockstar themselves) say Spring.

Oh god I envy you. If you were to get a 360 now, you'd have a virtually endless supply of amazing games to experience. By the time you've played everything worth playing, the next gen consoles will be out.

I'm so desperately waiting for this game, this and elder scrolls are the only games I really anticipate for...and mgs. Anyone know when vice city is suppose to be released on android?
#119
I don't know but I can wait a few months for a game like GTA 5, since I'll probably play it nonstop for a week then keep playing it a lot for a year after that.

I am SO waiting for this too. Though I don't know if my phone will be able to handle it, it had some framerate issues running GTA III.
