Mateorocks: Some notable events in the first few hours I played (not really spoilers I promise):

1. Michael sounds exactly like me when I play golf.
2. There sure are a lot of tennis courts.
3. I requested a blimp but have no idea where to go to ride it.

I must need a larger television. I can't read any of the e-mails/text messages from characters without squinting.


The blimp should show up on your map, but head to the airport, that's where I found mine.

Egoy3k: Having to load the map in a game that's this big is a major pain in the ass, maybe other versions (and hopefully the future PC release) won't have this issue but it annoys me.


I would like the map as the default "start button" position, and be able to back out of it to get to the other start menu options.  Right now it is, but you still have to click "A" to browse it.  I am not that lazy, but this little thing annoys me for some reason.

its an icon on the map after you call it in.  kinda to the east of the city but it is hard to say.  im kinda pissed the map is hidden until discovered type shiat.

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)


Well in the first hour of play it is the most times I've ever heard the N word used in a video game.
 
2013-09-18 10:07:36 AM  
I think the most fun I've had with this game is wondering around the city playing the knock out game.

Wifey bought this for me on pre-order and it arrived yesterday, but I'm not allowed to have it until christmas boo-hoo sucks.

Anyhow, are there checkpoints during missions? I've gone back to IV to try and finish it but just had an extremely frustrating week trying to get through Packies third mission, the bank robbery one, I kept getting killed in the subway and it took half an hour to set up every time. Managed it on about the 9th attempt but jeez I want to avoid this kind of grief.

Yes there are checkpoints and even an option to skip difficult sections if you so choose.

Lots of checkpoints, basically every segment of a mission is a checkpoint (at least on the ones I've done so far.)

Loved every second I played last night, looking forward to playing some more tonight. Franklin and Michael are great characters already, haven't "unlocked" Trevor yet.

/Of course it's GTA but there are supposed to some likable characters.
/Woozie, Roman, Gay Tony, Cortez for example.

I played my XBox 360 version of GTA V yesterday for twelve hours and had more fun in a game than I have had in a long time, while other people moped in their basements, muttering about PCs, superiority, and console game losers. Unlocked Trevor, bought the air strip. Tonight I am going to find out how the stock market works. Best $60 I have spent in a long time.

I have about 500 megs left on my (20GB) 360 hard drive. You guys think I am screwed when GTA Online comes out?

I kinda like Lamar. He's clearly an asshole, but he's alright. Like a little brother that can't help but talk shiat because he knows his big brother will be there to back him up. And while Jimmy is a little shiathead, he reminds me of way too many people I know IRL.

I was dying laughing at the start of that mini-mission. His reaction was too perfect.

Honestly one of the best features of the missions isn't just the checkpoints, though they are pretty nice.  Missions can be replayed after beating them, anytime, and that includes the heists themselves.  And to add to the replay value, they have challenges in every mission that you can strive for during the replay, stuff like finishing within a time limit or minimal damage to your ride or a certain amount of headshots.  This is something that's been sorely missing in the Saints Row games since 2, and missing in the GTA series since... well... ever.  I want to play that awesome mission over and over again, and GTA V lets you do that.

Ballad of Gay Tony let you replay missions and had a similar "goal" structure. It works a lot better in V, though.

The stock market is pretty cool.  Things you do in game will have an effect on the market.  There is a mission to take out the CEO of a drug company before you do it buy shares of their competitor.  The game is very obvious about when to do it in that case because it's the introduction to the stock market.

I only got to play about 4 hours after work yesterday, but it is very very enjoyable.  The interaction with everyone in the city is very well done.  I was running down the street and saw this super hot chick struttin along.  I went over to her to check her out and see what she would say, and she said "fark off scumbag" or something of the like.  I then cold clocked her with a haymaker from behind, and she went down like a ton of bricks in front of some black homeless guy with a 40 who shouted "Ohhhhh shiat!" and then went back to stumbling along shiatfaced.

I stared down a homeless guy that asked me for some change. After a few moments, he said "Fine, forget it!" And got out of his shiatty lawn chair to walk off. Naturally, I beat him to death.

That's OK. I just ordered a new XBox. A 120GB HDD for my existing (old) one would be like $160. I decided to get a brand new 250GB Xbox with Skyrim, Forza 2, and a headset for $199, and sell my existing one for $50, which turned out to be even cheaper than buying a new 120GB HDD.

jfivealive:320 gb one for old style xbox for $47 on amazon.

$72.55 after taxes and shipping, but that is certainly a lot lower than I thought, thanks for the info. I'll stick with my new one, it's only a matter of time until my old XBox red-rings anyway.

I'd like to think I am an older and wiser game than I was in my youth. I don't beat up the hookers after my characters are done with them anymore.

Latest hobby is driving into the airport and stealing jets, tend to be able do it before the cops catch up. Trying the same in military base doesn't work out so well. Parachuting off of the chairlift at the top of the big mountain last for ages.  My fav car so far is the FIB unmarked one, they drive perfectly and super fast (stole it by just running over a heap of scientists and FIB's in suits you are out inspecting the big radio telescopes.)

I thought Xbox harddrives were just the same as normal PC internal ones and so you can just put in a TB for next to nothing?

After a bit of reading this turns out not to be as easy as I assumed it would be and also MS will notice and probably ban you from online.
