I'll have to wait..apparently it's not yet available for PC.

Apparently seat belts don't work in the cars.

Kinda cool physics with the vehicles. That's a huge difference and a more fun one. I smashed my head against a wall when I wiped out on my motorcycle. Crashed a car a little too often and a little too hard and I finally got flung through the windshield.

When hitting pedestrians, they leave blood smears on the car.

I've only played a couple of hours, but so far I'm enjoying it. We'll see how the rest of the week goes.

This is from my 11 year old nephew.

GGGrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr (two hours)....sputter...sputter... die.
Not sure what happened but it (literally) crashed after a couple hours.

Played single player for several hours last night. Starts slow, but its setting up characters and going through game mechanics, which is good because it feels a lot different than any previous GTA. I happen to like the changes though and I'm enjoying single player so far.

Then played multiplayer until 2AM. Too much fun. Work hurts this morning.

If the ethernet cord is plugged into the system, try unplugging it as restarting the game.

My only complaint is the lack of flamboyant clothes ealier on.

I haven't tried multiplayer yet.

Had a bunch of fun last night playing it. Though I'm really excited for when the PC version hits the market. My buddy was expressing that he thinks he's going to be a little jealous when I do finally get the PC version. This game is going to look awesome at 1600x1200 with all the graphical options turned up to 11! ;)

Anyone else find it dark? I had trouble seeing, and that's on a 42" LCD flat screen. I jacked up the brightness but still had trouble seeing what's going on.

Anyone else? Or am I just old.

Played for about 2 hours last night, then went back and finished my 2nd Mass Effect playthrough.

I'll pick GTA back up again this weekend and try to really dive into it. Seems like another one of those games (like Mass Effect) where it takes a while to get going, but hopefully the payoff is a deep immersive game. Certainly, just driving around, I was impressed with the environment. Haven't really gotten into the characters yet though.

Same here. Had to jack the brightness and contrast up. The phone is still not exactly easy to read though. Can't imagine trying to read it or the radar on a standard TV.

I hear it's impossible to see at night in the game when your headlights get busted. That's pretty cool.

/should be at my door when I come home from work

Just get a new car everytime you break your headlights

HulkHands: If the ethernet cord is plugged into the system, try unplugging it as restarting the game.

Again, for the liters coming in - I hear this is one of the many fixes. Try it. The game is constantly feeding stats to the online community, which is under a crush of users right now.

Played for a few hours last night, anyone know how long you have to play before a) you get a second safehouse, b) decent clothes are available, and c) you get gym access? My character's living in a slum, dressed like a slob, and getting pudgy, and it annoys me=P

Oh so they kept the body stuff, like getting fat or buff? That's cool. I loved playing around with that in San Andreas.
 
2008-04-30 01:15:28 PM  
The character development is interesting. I'm curious to know whether they intended it to be so obvious that Michelle is a cop.

I can't believe that bit with Britney Spears. How did the developers get away with that?
 
2008-04-30 01:42:03 PM  
Enough with the GTA4 threads!

/nope, not a jealous non-PS3, non-360 owner waiting for the PC release.
 
2008-04-30 01:42:55 PM  
I ran out and bought it after hearing all you farkers talking about the damn game (still no time to play it).
 
2008-04-30 01:43:10 PM  
omg, I cannot believe there were spoilers in the thread with the headline containing "LIKELY SPOILERS"
 
2008-04-30 01:43:30 PM  
I'm currently about 20% in, little side quest stuff yet. Its super fantastic. Probably won't get to multi-player until tomorrow.

Gamer Tag: Nrust

And apparently, no one on the website wants to date me. That makes me a sad Nikko

There is no body stuff. Niko is just pudgy. It's about time we had a pudgy protagonist!

I love the game, its great! My only issue... how the hell do I catch that guy on the first bike chase mission? The guy just goes mach 5 and boom I fail! That stuff is annoying, but the game is still utter greatness.

Son of a biatch. My wife and I KNEW there was something wrong with that chick!

/won't tell her, let her find out while I play.

I bought it last night with a 360 pro system, 2 5 dollar xbox games & a product protection plan. $507 on the credit card.

It's okay.

So far, I've found nobody to play the multiplayer games with. I thought it would be packed with users already.

Dude, if you didn't figure that out from the "Everything in your apartment is new" and the "What do you do?" questions every five seconds with her, then you're 'tard.

/to be fair, I don't know that she actually IS a cop yet
//and I love the blood smears on the car after you hit people

You don't catch him, just stay behind him and he'll get some friends, they then go in the park where you can shoot them at your leisure. He won't take any damage until the cut-scene where his friends show up, trust me, I know.
 
2008-04-30 01:47:04 PM  
Played the single player all night, and enjoyed the hell out of it ^_^ I still dont know how to access the multiplayer or how to get back to title screen after loading a game. I looked in the manual but nothing there... I guess I'll figure it out along the way.

F*CK. I know they're was a spoiler warning but I didn't anyone could be very much further than me already. Oh well.

The aside, I'm really enjoying it thus far. I guess the Michelle = cop thing makes sense because the biatch sure asks a lot of questions.

I suppose it's a good change from getting blinded by the sun in Vice City.
 
2008-04-30 01:48:00 PM  
Is the game really worth getting? I mean I played GTA3 when it came out, and then I never played Vice City or San Andreas because they were pretty much the same game with different objectives.

So is GTA4 different enough that it is worth picking up?

/For 360
 
2008-04-30 01:48:44 PM

Multi-player is accessible from your Cellular phone, it's right above Options. Wont even let you do anything there unless you have a gold account though.

No title screen, it auto-loads. I think you have to quit manually inside the game(don't know, never considered it an issue).

Exactly... I only played a short bit last night and only took that 1 date mission with her, and they really really really layer her copishness on thick.

I agree the game is dark. Upped the brightness and contrast as well. The phone right now is my biggest complaint. I have a 52" DLP and it is really hard to read. The words should be on a white background. This would help alot.

Other wise I LOVE IT!!

Try a head on collision with a taxi. Not only the driver will shoot in your face, but the sign on the roof of the car as well.
