I am waiting patiently for my brother to come home from work to start the game (he did pay for it ;)  So I did the right thing by installing it ... downloaded his blimp and then turned off the PS3.  I am such a nice brother :D
 
2013-09-17 10:15:24 AM  
i played the first mission.  I'm so out of practice.  took me forever to get away from the cops...

oh, spoiler alert, you have to get away from the cops in this game :-p

Dammit, I hate when they introduce new mechanics without warning!
 
2013-09-17 10:28:51 AM  
My buddy wants me to come over and see it tonight.

I have a long damn day ahead of me, so I may feel like going to bed as soon as it's over.
 
2013-09-17 10:40:37 AM  
I'm packing back and forth for the UPS guys like a kid waiting for Christmas.
 
2013-09-17 10:42:11 AM  
Can someone explain this blimp thing to me? I pre-ordered it on amazon and just got an e-mail about it.
 
2013-09-17 10:42:52 AM  
And I'm too lazy to Google it, obvs.

I pre-ordered on amazon and I haven't heard anything about it.

Pre-ordering grants you instant access to the giant blimp that they've shown in advertisements. Where it is and how you control it are another thing, but you do have immediate access to it. I'm guessing others will have to complete some missions to get to it.

/Didn't pre-order
//Not picking up til weekend
///Trying to avoid spoilers, but probably won't happen

I ordered it as a bundle with a new PS3 (mine sh*t the bed recently), maybe that's why?

As soon as I leave the office I'll be getting this. Plan to spend quite some time racking up 6-star ratings and hijacking a tank and causing as much mayhem as possible!

My roommate lost his a month ago and he is in agony over whether to buy a new one or just wait for the 4.
 
2013-09-17 11:17:32 AM  
Well he finally got home and we are both very impressed.  The detail in the city is phenominal - its like the ole San Andreas but with so much more. Moths flying around lights :D You can replay missions in an attempt to get perfection. We know we have bearly scratched the surface.

Best bit is - I have the next three days off, my brother hasn't *muahahaha*

Is GTA V going to be a release day game for the next gen? Personally, I'd tell him to wait, pick up the PS3 bundle, and enjoy it for 2-3 years as both systems build a library and you can make a more informed decision then.

Agree.  My bro is moving out soon and I will be PS3'less -> planning to wait for the bargains.

That's my plan. I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger on a new console when it's first released. I'm not a huge gamer anyway, so I guess it doesn't really matter.
 
2013-09-17 11:59:24 AM  
Woot!  Just got dropped off in my cube.
 
2013-09-17 12:49:42 PM  
Didn't preorder, but I'm monitoring because I'm interested
 
2013-09-17 12:56:25 PM  
Picking it up after work. Along with a six-pack and a pizza. My wife is just going to have to deal with it.

Is it anything like GTAIV?
 
2013-09-17 01:24:17 PM  
Meh.  GTA jumped the shark a while ago. Saints Row is the new hotness.
 
2013-09-17 01:27:13 PM  
FYI:
Anyone buying GTA V for the 360, do NOT Install the "play" disc. You have to do the mandatory 8GB install disc, but Rockstar specifically said to just play the game from the disc as installing it can cause graphics errors.
 
2013-09-17 01:27:33 PM  
As long as I can jetpack up to the roof of a tall building and shoot down helicopters for hours and hours, I'll be happy.
 
2013-09-17 01:27:35 PM  
Predicting Media shiatstorm about the playable torture scene within 7 days.

Also, wtf rockstar. dipping down to 14 fps?I hope the PC and next gen version fix that problem.
 
2013-09-17 01:34:35 PM  
The best part was that mission where you have to kill a guy and outrun the police.
 
2013-09-17 01:35:06 PM  
When does the MP portion go live? I want to know if it lives up to the hype. That's pretty much what would get me to buy it, and it not being available at start is kinda a turn off. Guess I'll continue smashing aliens with my Dr Manhattan dildo bat in SR for a while longer.
 
2013-09-17 01:35:12 PM  
Remember, the only honorable way to inaugurate a new GTA game is by beating up hookers and taking their money.

October 1. Read the IGN hands-on reviews to get a sense of all the cool stuff available in MP.

Review roundup. The Escapist gave it a 3.5/5... because the characters were big meanies :(  (Seriously, they took 30% off because the main characters were too mean for them)

Wait, what?  Christ, I am going to have to uninstall pretty much everything I have. Fark me.

I've never understood the allure of these games. It's a mediocre driving game paired with an unwieldy shooter, set to an admittedly awesome radio soundtrack. It's fun to run around causing havoc for a while, yeah, but the gameplay is so clunky as to make it not worth the trouble.

LOL, gaming on a 360.  Multiple discs?  What is this, 2004?  I've got a PS3, but there's no way I'd get it on that instead of waiting for the PC release.  A 30fps cap at 720p?  Probably 30 second load times too.  Sad.

Was that Yahtzee's review, or one of the other authors? I'd find it kinda funny/hypocritical if Yahtzee was offended by big meanies
 
2013-09-17 01:55:05 PM  
I get my copy on Friday. In the meantime I've been watching youtube clips of the game. Swimming with the sharks is looking mighty farking fantastic and terrifying.
 
2013-09-17 01:55:16 PM  
Does this one include a save feature? The lack of such in the prior game was kind of annoying.

Then don't play it.

They said they've fixed the checkpoint system so there won't be any times where you die and have to spend 30-60 minutes redoing everything you did before death

scottydoesntknow: Is GTA V going to be a release day game for the next gen?


Nope.  And that was probably with both Sony and MS offering piles and piles of money to make it happen.

There's something going around about finding something in the source code that indicates it will eventually make it to PS4, PC, etc, but god knows when with Rockstar.
 
2013-09-17 01:57:55 PM  
I can't wait for Fox News to get a hold of this scene. I predict they instantly become anti-torture crusaders.

Not planning on it. Was more hoping that someone could offer up the reasons why GTA games are great, other than skydiving and mini golf.

Keep laughing at me if it makes you feel better, I'll be too busy having fun today. I'm such a loser, eh? LOL

I'll be selling the 360 version when my PS4 gets here, and will be upgrading.

No, I mean... a way to actually save the game. At all. Ever.

I've literally never been able to save GTA IV because every time I ever tried to create a goddamn GFWL account to make an offline profile the stupid "service" was down. So I finally gave up and stopped playing :\

Cool, dude.  Have fun playing on your Halo 720 DoritoBox.  I'm sure you'll be real impressed with that PS4.  I was amped when I first got that kind of gaming power around 4 years ago.
