So, the download was the Sims instead of GTA?
 
2013-10-22 09:57:32 AM  
Hah.  Suckers.  Now let me open up this PC port of Red Dead Redemption I found and***CARRIER LOST***

LOL can you imagine being the tech that is called to try and remove 18Gb of malware and virus?  Better hope they have backups because it's formatting time.

No thanks, I'm still too busy uploading viruses into Saints Row IV.
 
2013-10-22 10:02:13 AM  
when does someone blame Rockstar for this? Surely if there was a legitimate port to PC for GTAV, then that would have been available to download illegally something that was virus infected right?

Rockstar is just ensuring everyone will pay for the PC version.
 
2013-10-22 10:21:55 AM  
I'm trying to be patient, but the game isn't much fun so far. On one of the main missions, I was actually tasked with beating a kid in a bicycle race. I thought GTA stood for grand theft auto. I'm about to go back to Borderlands 2.

styckx: Good thing I'm behind 7 Mcafees


What Maccabees 7 might look like:

1
It also happened that seven brothers with their mother were arrested and tortured with whips and scourges by the king to force them to eat pork in violation of God's law.a
2
One of the brothers, speaking for the others, said: "What do you expect to learn by questioning us? We are ready to die rather than transgress the laws of our ancestors."
3
At that the king, in a fury, gave orders to have pans and caldrons heated.
4
These were quickly heated, and he gave the order to cut out the tongue of the one who had spoken for the others, to scalp him and cut off his hands and feet, while the rest of his brothers and his mother looked on.
5
When he was completely maimed but still breathing, the king ordered them to carry him to the fire and fry him. As a cloud of smoke spread from the pan, the brothers and their mother encouraged one another to die nobly, with these words:
6
"The Lord God is looking on and truly has compassion on us, as Moses declared in his song, when he openly bore witness, saying, 'And God will have compassion on his servants.'"b
7
After the first brother had died in this manner, they brought the second to be made sport of. After tearing off the skin and hair of his head, they asked him, "Will you eat the pork rather than have your body tortured limb by limb?"
8
Answering in the language of his ancestors, he said, "Never!" So he in turn suffered the same tortures as the first.
9
With his last breath he said: "You accursed fiend, you are depriving us of this present life, but the King of the universe will raise us up* to live again forever, because we are dying for his laws."c
10
After him the third suffered their cruel sport. He put forth his tongue at once when told to do so, and bravely stretched out his hands,
11
as he spoke these noble words: "It was from Heaven that I received these; for the sake of his laws I disregard them; from him I hope to receive them again."
12
Even the king and his attendants marveled at the young man's spirit, because he regarded his sufferings as nothing.
13
After he had died, they tortured and maltreated the fourth brother in the same way.
14
When he was near death, he said, "It is my choice to die at the hands of mortals with the hope that God will restore me to life; but for you, there will be no resurrection to life."
15
They next brought forward the fifth brother and maltreated him.
16
Looking at the king, he said:d "Mortal though you are, you have power over human beings, so you do what you please. But do not think that our nation is forsaken by God.
17
Only wait, and you will see how his great power will torment you and your descendants."
18
After him they brought the sixth brother. When he was about to die, he said: "Have no vain illusions. We suffer these things on our own account, because we have sinned against our God; that is why such shocking things have happened.
19
Do not think, then, that you will go unpunished for having dared to fight against God."
20
Most admirable and worthy of everlasting remembrance was the mother who, seeing her seven sons perish in a single day, bore it courageously because of her hope in the Lord.
21
Filled with a noble spirit that stirred her womanly reason with manly emotion, she exhorted each of them in the language of their ancestors with these words:
22
e "I do not know how you came to be in my womb; it was not I who gave you breath and life, nor was it I who arranged the elements you are made of.
23
Therefore, since it is the Creator of the universe who shaped the beginning of humankind and brought about the origin of everything, he, in his mercy, will give you back both breath and life, because you now disregard yourselves for the sake of his law."
24
Antiochus, suspecting insult in her words, thought he was being ridiculed. As the youngest brother was still alive, the king appealed to him, not with mere words, but with promises on oath, to make him rich and happy if he would abandon his ancestral customs: he would make him his Friend and entrust him with high office.
25
When the youth paid no attention to him at all, the king appealed to the mother, urging her to advise her boy to save his life.
26
After he had urged her for a long time, she agreed to persuade her son.
27
She leaned over close to him and, in derision of the cruel tyrant, said in their native language: "Son, have pity on me, who carried you in my womb for nine months, nursed you for three years, brought you up, educated and supported you to your present age.
28
I beg you, child, to look at the heavens and the earth and see all that is in them; then you will know that God did not make them out of existing things.* In the same way humankind came into existence.
29
Do not be afraid of this executioner, but be worthy of your brothers and accept death, so that in the time of mercy I may receive you again with your brothers."
30
She had scarcely finished speaking when the youth said: "What is the delay? I will not obey the king's command. I obey the command of the law given to our ancestors through Moses.
31
But you, who have contrived every kind of evil for the Hebrews, will not escape the hands of God.
32
We, indeed, are suffering because of our sins.f
33
Though for a little while our living Lord has been angry, correcting and chastising us, he will again be reconciled with his servants.
34
But you, wretch, most vile of mortals, do not, in your insolence, buoy yourself up with unfounded hopes, as you raise your hand against the children of heaven.
35
You have not yet escaped the judgment of the almighty and all-seeing God.
36
Our brothers, after enduring brief pain, have drunk of never-failing life, under God's covenant. But you, by the judgment of God, shall receive just punishments for your arrogance.
37
Like my brothers, I offer up my body and my life for our ancestral laws, imploring God to show mercy soon to our nation, and by afflictions and blows to make you confess that he alone is God.
38
Through me and my brothers, may there be an end to the wrath of the Almighty that has justly fallen on our whole nation."
39
At that, the king became enraged and treated him even worse than the others, since he bitterly resented the boy's contempt.
40
Thus he too died undefiled, putting all his trust in the Lord.
41
Last of all, after her sons, the mother was put to death.
42
Enough has been said about the sacrificial meals and the excessive cruelties.

Fear monger much?
How much did the industry pay you to slander downloading?

Off the top of my head, I'm going to guess that barely anyone downloaded the infected torrent.  Because only idiots download "too good to be true" files from unreputable uploaders.

Because that's how you get viruses.

This might be why Rockstar is in no real rush to port to PC. Also, they just made like a billion dollars with the console release. PC sales won't impress and can wait.

All the real gamers use consoles anyway so why would they port to PC?  They made a billion in console sales.  If they can get 1 million PC people that's at most $50 million in sales, not that $50 million isn't a lot but that's a drop in the bucket compared to the console sales.

I am one of those people who buys the console version while waiting for the PC version to come out because the graphics, draw distances and lack of mods on the console is so very disappointing.

For me I had a fantastic time in GTA V and have so far skipped the online experience and spent a good 70 hrs getting 88% completion and look forward to buying it on PC and getting online to get griefed by people who are much better than me before retiring of a private server of friends.

Yeah I gave up this weekend and went back to GW2.  Halloween stuff going on there and its pretty fun, whereas in GTA online all I can do is the same missions over and over and over and over.  And that wasn't so bad before, but now they screwed up making money on repeating them which angers me for some reason even though there is really nothing else left to buy except car upgrades after I win like 90 more races or some crap.  They better drop some cool shiat soon or I'm trading that thing in.

It gets better. The missions where you have to switch between characters to accomplish different tasks on a heist or a job are especially well done. I just did one last night where the three guys had to extract a dude being questioned on the 28th floor of a high rise. I had to fly a chopper up next to the building as Trevor, switch to Mike, rappel down to the floor the target's on and break the glass, then switch to Franklin, who was set up on a rooftop with a sniper rifle and help clear the floor of baddies, switch back to Mike to take out the stragglers Franklin couldn't get a bead on, switch back to Franklin to take out one of the choppers now swarming us, switch again....you get the idea. It was awesome.

......and....and then I did yoga.

It is a shame GFWL is shutting down, GTA5 players will miss out on the engaging social infrastructure it provided to GTA4.

Well they are dropping $500K into everyone's account as a "stimulus".

And yea, farking with the paydays was messed up. Especially since they did it completely unannounced (didn't even list it on the patch page). They finally issued an apology for doing that, but said they'll probably be keeping it that way to encourage doing other missions.

Anyway, I'm still having some fun with it, but I'm losing interest. I'm picking up Diablo III so my fiance and I can play that together. The co-op on it is supposed to be fantastic.

That one and the psuedo North Holywood Shootout mission both had me going "HELL YES THIS ROCKS THIS IS THE BEST GTA EVER!"

The torture scene made me uncomfortable. Like legit. And I'm basically a sociopath in videogames. Reminded me of having to pull the last trigger on the Boss in MGS3.

That's a good thing. The people you need to watch out for are the ones who enjoyed that scene and wanted to replay it for a gold rating!

It was also a great commentary on torture and Trevor basically hits the nail on the head.

**SPOILERS** (delete if quoting)
It also made shooting that asshole with Trevor at the end of the game really satsifying

I think they nerfed the military base with the last patch, it's super easy to steal a jet now. So I've taken to the skies to harass and annoy people for a while. But I'm a swell guy, so I tell the room I'm landing the jet at the airport if anyone wants to take it. Then I listen to the madness ensue on mic as they all start murdering each other on the way to the airport.

I could really care less about the stimulus.  All I can do with it is buy more car upgrades or ammo - I already bought a 220k house, since that one looks exactly the same as the 400k one.  Lame.

I do hear that Diablo is fun on the console, haven't played it but some friends online have and they really like it.

You're missing out on the:

Start game with just a 9mm and 30 rounds.  Get into a cheap family sedan.

Get chased around the map by three N-bomb screaming pre-pubescents from England, with suppressed machineguns (so the cops completely ignore them) in armored and bullet-proofed turbocharged sports cars, who have been playing the online version non-stop.

Said children are surprisingly terrible, and despite being out-gunned and out-numbered, this chase drags on for at least 30 minutes, because their fundamentals are farking terrible.

Eventually get killed, or get away from them, and join a gang-war deathmatch.

Observe said children rush into an open area and line up and shoot at each other, hoping their health lasts longer.

Next round, climb up to the roof, and take out four guys with customized M4s and body armor with a stock 9mm pistol.

Get called every homophobic and racial slur possible, because finding higher ground is "cheating."

Get vote-kicked from the game entirely.

Haven't hit that one yet. I have a hard time with stuff like that. The "No Russian" mission in MW2, myriad things in Fallout 3, but the worst was at the end of the evil playthrough of InFamous 2 where they...

[SPOILERS EVEN THOUGH YOU SHOULD HAVE PLAYED THIS AWESOME GAME BY NOW! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?]


...force you to zap your best friend, repeatedly, until he's dead, to progress. He saw what a monster you were becoming and tries to stop you with a gun, knowing full well it won't work. He's essentially appealing to that last shred of humanity he hopes is left in you, trying to force you to take a step back from the brink. And the game forces you to kill him. If you hesitate he even says something like "Well? What are you waiting for?" God I felt like shiat after that.

I'm going to funny mark your post because of the 'works fine' part.  The consoles cannot run the game fine, they run it at a sub HD resolution, with no anti-aliasing and shiatty tiny draw distance and everything else hobbled to nothing.  There is no way around that, the current consoles aren't strong enough to run the engine as it can be run.  A PC can do that, a PC can also run the game in triple screen and you can patch in wheel support.  That's how I played GTA4 and that's what I'm going to wait for to play GTA5.

I bought GTA4 for a console and I thought it was okay...until I got to buy it for my PC and try that out, I won't make that mistake again.  Modding wise about the only things I tend to throw in there is even more beautiful textures and rendering engines then by default, because good PCs can handle it.

xalres: A_bomb37: The torture scene made me uncomfortable. Like legit. And I'm basically a sociopath in videogames. Reminded me of having to pull the last trigger on the Boss in MGS3.

Haven't hit that one yet. I have a hard time with stuff like that. The "No Russian" mission in MW2, myriad things in Fallout 3, but the worst was at the end of the evil playthrough of InFamous 2 where they...

[SPOILERS EVEN THOUGH YOU SHOULD HAVE PLAYED THIS AWESOME GAME BY NOW! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?]


...force you to zap your best friend, repeatedly, until he's dead, to progress. He saw what a monster you were becoming and tries to stop you with a gun, knowing full well it won't work. He's essentially appealing to that last shred of humanity he hopes is left in you, trying to force you to take a step back from the brink. And the game forces you to kill him. If you hesitate he even says something like "Well? What are you waiting for?" God I felt like shiat after that.


You want a game that can make you feel like shiat? Play Spec Ops: The Line. It's a 3rd-person shooter that takes aim at pretty much every trope found in your modern brown shooters. Turns you into a complete bastard without even realizing it.

Lol I was about to post about that.  Poor Zeke.  When it went into first person mode with his arm outstretched I was like "ah damnit..."

Hated both female leads in that game, would have preferred to wipe both of them out.  Wouldn't have even hesitated to blast them to death.

Just thermite the damn thing at that point.

^ This.. And cancel your bank account, get a new SSN and change your name. 18GB of virus probably steals your entire lives privacy in two seconds..


18GB just takes time, most of the serious crap would interfere with each other.  You can only hijack so many times.

You'll eventually end up with the tech peeling back layers of the onion, removing things gradually.

Well having just finished Saints Row 4... I'm kinda good for open world sandbox games for the moment.   So whilst I'm not 'OMGNAOW' about it I'm pretty sure if GTA5 had released for PC it'd be sat there on Steam... nope not there.

Which is kinda of a big telltale that whatever you were going to download wasn't real. OTOH if I do find any parents of 13yr olds who've infested their computers with this shiat, I will be sure to charge triple time and make sure they are quite aware of where, how and who caused the problem.

I am hoping that Cole comes back in Second Sons. Loved InFOMOUS series. The second one really made me sad when finishing the evil ending. And agreed with the two female leads. They were not that interesting. Not like Trish was in the first game.

scottydoesntknow: It was also a great commentary on torture and Trevor basically hits the nail on the head.


I found Trevor's argument especially poignant: torture should never be used for information gathering, because a person under torture will say whatever will stop the pain. Instead, torture should be performed for its own sake, for the enjoyment of the torture itself.

Based on all the conspiracies online in regard to the Mt Chilliad mural, I'm beginning to think that the delay in a PC port has more to do with all of the surprises Rockstar put in the game than anything else.  With all the detail they put into the game I can't imagine they'd want to make it any easier to have someone digging through the game files and cheating to find what they'd carefully hidden.

Trevor is a sociopath, not stupid. He knows torture is not effective, he simply enjoys it, and admits to it freely.
Hell, his intro alone sers the mood brilliantly. Especially since I had played through TLatD right before.

SPOILER: Was really not happy about Johnny turning into a methhead.

It gets better. The missions where you have to switch between characters to accomplish different tasks on a heist or a job are especially well done. I just did one last night where the three guys had to extract a dude being questioned on the 28th floor of a high rise. I had to fly a chopper up next to the building as Trevor, switch to Mike, rappel down to the floor the target's on and break the glass, then switch to Franklin, who was set up on a rooftop with a sniper rifle and help clear the floor of baddies, switch back to Mike to take out the stragglers Franklin couldn't get a bead on, switch back to Franklin to take out one of the choppers now swarming us, switch again....you get the idea. It was awesome.

......and....and then I did yoga.

yay


Also, you get beat up by the yoga guy and then your wife calls you names. So, yeah.

Sgt Otter: farbekrieg: I am one of those people who buys the console version while waiting for the PC version to come out because the graphics, draw distances and lack of mods on the console is so very disappointing.

For me I had a fantastic time in GTA V and have so far skipped the online experience and spent a good 70 hrs getting 88% completion and look forward to buying it on PC and getting online to get griefed by people who are much better than me before retiring of a private server of friends.

You're missing out on the:

Start game with just a 9mm and 30 rounds.  Get into a cheap family sedan.

Get chased around the map by three N-bomb screaming pre-pubescents from England, with suppressed machineguns (so the cops completely ignore them) in armored and bullet-proofed turbocharged sports cars, who have been playing the online version non-stop.

Said children are surprisingly terrible, and despite being out-gunned and out-numbered, this chase drags on for at least 30 minutes, because their fundamentals are farking terrible.

Eventually get killed, or get away from them, and join a gang-war deathmatch.

Observe said children rush into an open area and line up and shoot at each other, hoping their health lasts longer.

Next round, climb up to the roof, and take out four guys with customized M4s and body armor with a stock 9mm pistol.

Get called every homophobic and racial slur possible, because finding higher ground is "cheating."

Get vote-kicked from the game entirely.


Past level ten when that happens you can just put a bounty on one of the guys and laugh as you watch them tear each other apart.  Counter griefing is a game unto itself.

Rockstar loves to do this now. Remember those homestead missions in RDR that were meant to be the calm before the storm that was the ending, but in practice were just boring and mundane? There, the mundanity was a desired thing for Marston where he could finally connect with his son and enjoy his life outside of outlawing, which is why what happened afterward was more effective than it would have been if we had no missions and it just passed over all of this in a cutscene.

In this case, these missions are to explore the mundanity of trying to connect with your spouse or kids who you are walled off from emotionally. This is great for helping to understand Michael's issues, but terrible for actual gameplay.

The worst mission is a semi-hidden one. All I'll say about that is that you have to wander the desert. That's it. And it sucks.

Anyway, if you pass up on this game because early on, it establishes Michael's boring home life to show, quite hands-on in fact, why he gets back into the heist game, you are really missing out.

Smelly McUgly: The worst mission is a semi-hidden one. All I'll say about that is that you have to wander the desert. That's it. And it sucks.


Lol, dude, everyone knows you just use a rubber band to hold the thumbstick in one direction (usually NW or NE so he runs in a circle) and just do something else for about 30 minutes.

I make him feel better by getting a string of prostitutes and strippers.

Which is what got him into trouble in the first place! ;)

I actually play this game so that Franklin is the one nailing the strippers that you can take home as a way for him to get over Tanisha, who is just terrible anyway (as is Lamar, really, and he should pretty much say fark 'em both and enjoy his station in life).

Eh, that sounds like too much work to get it to sit just right. I ended up seeing how many mountain lions I could shoot.

Very easy, just wrap it over one of the triggers.

Not mine (I've got a 360), but it'll give you the idea

Yes please try harder, that wasn't even close to being up to snuff.

xalres: stewbert: I'm trying to be patient, but the game isn't much fun so far. On one of the main missions, I was actually tasked with beating a kid in a bicycle race. I thought GTA stood for grand theft auto. I'm about to go back to Borderlands 2.

It gets better. The missions where you have to switch between characters to accomplish different tasks on a heist or a job are especially well done. I just did one last night where the three guys had to extract a dude being questioned on the 28th floor of a high rise. I had to fly a chopper up next to the building as Trevor, switch to Mike, rappel down to the floor the target's on and break the glass, then switch to Franklin, who was set up on a rooftop with a sniper rifle and help clear the floor of baddies, switch back to Mike to take out the stragglers Franklin couldn't get a bead on, switch back to Franklin to take out one of the choppers now swarming us, switch again....you get the idea. It was awesome.

......and....and then I did yoga.

yay


You forgot about the torture part.The guy you extract get tortured. Worst part of the game, ever.

A very good one. Yes.

As there was in IV, SA, VC, and III.

The cool thing about V is that the story is a bit more alterable depending on what you do with the characters, who you choose to control, and what you opt to do in the end.

I disagree. The methhead psycho actually ends up saving the guys life. I thought Trevors intro was much more brutal, especially if you played the lost and the damned.
Kibitz was the most moral member of the lost, reduced to a spineless meth head and summarily curb stomped in front of the woman he loves.

That's the size of the leaked console version that was real and actually worked.  I bet most of it was filler data.  Like 98% of it.

Yeah. That Trevor intro was a bit brutal. The guest appearance (and the side mention of Nico in another cutscene) made me wonder when they were going to bump into any of the other characters from past games. I would have loved to see what CJ is up to in 2013... And hear the subsequent confusion when Trevor says he sounds JUST LIKE Franklin.  Hmm... I'm wondering if Franklin is CJ's illegitimate kid.

How cool would it have been if we bumped into Tommy Vercetti?

You know, I was all prepared for some horrible shiat, but it really wasn't as bad as all that. Yes, it was torture, but I didn't see it as any worse than curb-stomping bikers and mowing down pedestrians. What made me feel bad was that after the torture the guy was supposed to be killed. Trevor's response to that was a great twist on his character.

Trevor really is the video game poster boy for "Chaotic Neutral".

And I love that the entire argument in the petition for releasing GTA V on PC is so they can completely change GTA V from what the developers wanted.


because small groups of modders have unlimited resources to make their own stuff right?

There were some GTA IV characters who appeared aside from Johnny, but aside from Lazlo, El Burro and Love Fist Rockstar said that they consider the first GTA games (GTA, London Expansion, and GTA2), the last generation GTA games (III, Vice City and San Andreas) and the current generation (IV and V) to be existing in different universes separate from each other.  So CJ couldn't be related to Franklin.

Not sure why they decided to think about it along those lines, because it would've been cool to run into old characters like that.

It's bound to be. Viruses and malware generally aren't large files. I'd be curious to see what else is packed in there, if it's just gigs of dummy data or any actual files used to pad the archive.

I'm not sure what your point is.

My point was that the petition to get GTA V on PC did not say anything about actually wanting to play and enjoy the game, all it said was "Please release the game to us so we can change it."

A stealth mission done right in a shooter can be a very welcome change in pace as long as breaking stealth an auto fail of the mission. Heck there have been times where I did a self imposed stealth rule in levels for the fun of it, in which there was the ability to do so.

Rockstar loves to do this now. Remember those homestead missions in RDR that were meant to be the calm before the storm that was the ending, but in practice were just boring and mundane? There, the mundanity was a desired thing for Marston where he could finally connect with his son and enjoy his life outside of outlawing, which is why what happened afterward was more effective than it would have been if we had no missions and it just passed over all of this in a cutscene.

In this case, these missions are to explore the mundanity of trying to connect with your spouse or kids who you are walled off from emotionally. This is great for helping to understand Michael's issues, but terrible for actual gameplay.

The worst mission is a semi-hidden one. All I'll say about that is that you have to wander the desert. That's it. And it sucks.

Anyway, if you pass up on this game because early on, it establishes Michael's boring home life to show, quite hands-on in fact, why he gets back into the heist game, you are really missing out.


I'm hanging in there for now. But, I actually don't recall that from RDR, as I got too bored with it before I was able to complete it. I've got higher hopes for GTAV. I enjoy driving in the game much more than I enjoyed riding a horse.

I'm really annoyed that there's time limits to get a Gold Medal on many of the missions.  Sometimes I like to cruise around and listen to the characters' banter, enjoy a song on the radio, or I swing by a gun shop to top off my ammo and armor.

More than likely a PC version will be out early next year.  I think the guess is sometime around February/March.  Using the dates for GTA 4 it was something like 200 days between the console and the PC version.  So following that trend it'll be out in time for a Steam Summer Sale.

Also forget the Borderlands 2 DLC, play the damn loot hunt!  Although the "prize" weapons are sorta crap I'm going to collect them and give them to friends who are just starting to play and just hit level 12.  I'm playing for the slim hopes of cash winnings.
