Trailer release on 2nd November? That's little over a week before the Skyrim release! Surely this must be a blatant attempt at sabotage on Skyrim's sales. Look at that, too, it's the fifth game in the series. Don't Bethesda have a trademark on the number five?

If I were Bethesda, I'd sue the shit out of Rockstar for this. It's only right.

mental to think this game is being developed just 5 minutes up the road from me.

I've heard a few of the employees like to consume alcohol in a pub called the conan doyle, which is situated near the studio. Might pop in and threaten them with a Molotov cocktail, see if i can loosen some tongues. I'm sure they'll appreciate the irony.

Rockstar has a cycle that begun from GTA IV to current. They go from good game to bad game to good game.

GTA IV = bad
Red Dead Redemption = good
LA Noire = bad

If GTA V is there next game it'll be good but that means if Agent finally comes out after then it'll be bad.

I felt GTA IV was more of a dramatic title. The expansions feel so much more GTA-y it's unbelievable. None of this I AM UNHEPPY AFTER WAR IN HOME COUNTRY.

I'd give GTA IV maybe a 7/10 as it was enjoyable despite the soberness of most of it. If we were rating it as a new IP it'd get a 9/10.

High hopes for V.

It's not the same San Andreas as GTA:SA. Los Santos will be a proper city like Liberty in GTA IV instead of a tiny town. Remember San Andreas was originally a city rather than a state too, they just changed that so they could show off how big they can make their games. Doesn't mean this one will be smaller.

The trailer looks rather nice, I wonder if GTA IV was more of a test then anything.

Either way I shall definitely be buying it, I'm due a game since I've decided not to buy BF3 or MW3. I just hope there is none of the mobile phone bullshit in it.

Normal cheats would be nice too, I haven't done more then 10 missions on any GTA since 2, I'd rather have a pigs off cheat once and just fuck about for hours instead of having to drag up a phone if you run a red light, let alone cross a bloody island.

The one thing that annoyed me about SA was, IMO, it was a missed opportunity.

In the original GTA, LC was New York, VC was Miami, and SA was Dan Francisco.

They kept LC as based on New York, they kept VC as Miami AND set it in tge 80s which was the best decade they could have done it....but then with SA they made it a mix of a few well known West coast cities. When ideally it should have been just San Francisco and set in the 70s, which would have allowed for references to Bullit, Dirty Harry etc.

Don't get me wrong, SA was phenomenal but I wish they had done it as San Francisco in the 70s. Maybe if they ever do one with the 'Always Mentioned Never Seen' Carcer City, that can be the theme?

So, what was the best one of the PS2 generation?
San Andreas for me, with the lowest on the scale being Vice City. I dont get the love for it really. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the music etc, but the city itself if mostly big empty nothing. Useless airport, huge useless beach, all flat, and only one road where you can get up any speed at all n the 2nd island.

Definitely San Andreas for me, I spent a ridiculous amount of time playing it, to the point where I could tell you the entire soundtrack off the top of my head. The obvious Boyz n the Hood theme was the best thing ever as a teenager. Driving full speed around the countryside in an oil tanker or the monster truck listening to K-Rose amused me for way longer than it should have. Also, a lot of people moan about the leveling up, but as a massive RPG fan I loved it, I didn't even mind how limited it was. I was gutted when I played IV and they'd got rid of it.

I liked Vice City more than III, but I think it was just the soundtrack and because I liked Scarface.

IV is my least favorite, admittedly I haven't played the DLC and I've heard they FEEL more like GTA, but I got incredibly bored by the base game.

Can't wait for this, I really, really hope we get the whole of San Andreas, if not I hope they Include more countryside than city. The problem with setting it in San Andreas again is that us who played the original game want all the cites, no matter how big they make that one city it will still feel limited.

Ahh the neverending "I want X back" or "I hope you can do Y". This touches on a larger issue though.

I feel the GTA series has become far too limited in it's scope recently. The reason it was such a success to begin with is because it offered unprecedented freedom- With the technology of the time, the simple ability to drive cars and shoot guns wherever and whenever you please felt like the world was your oyster.

By now it should be like a kind of uber-game, one genre to contain them all. Player agency should be the one and only focus of it's development; if I can think of something I should be able to do it, by virtue of the fact that all the elements are present, I just need to influence them in the right manner.

Instead, GTAIV was just a HD re-make of GTAII, and it felt badly behind the times for it. San Andreas was already making so much progress towards this sort of thing, way back in 2004, it really makes me wonder why they scrapped it all.

Little known fact: Herbert Moon was the true catalyst of WWII.

OT though, I bloody well hope there's something to look forward to over those mountains. As much of an achievement as it'd seem conquering one of the peaks of the ranges shown in the trailer / screenshots, I think it'd only be a disappointment if, when you finally reached the summit after destroying four SUVs and a dirt-bike, that there's something more substantial than endless ocean on the other side.

>In the past, players would have controlled a lone character all the way through the game. Here, you have three, switching between them at will. Alongside Michael, there's Franklin, a young kid working in vehicle repo for a bunch of Armenian gangsters, and the fascinating Trevor, a psychotic career criminal with a shady military background. These guys all have their own skills and specialities and will often attempt missions together, the player sticking with one character throughout the task, or swapping back and forth, relying on the computer to control the others.

Discussion might be nice. I actually have quite a mixed relationship with the GTA franchise. The first games were charming in a puerile, comic book kind of way, but then from III onward it seemed as though the technical exercise of building a living city outgrew the concept of playing a criminal. This shows in all of the things you can actually do, and how bizarre it was to catch my brother playing San Andreas and spending time working out his virtual avatar at a run down gym.

At the moment GTA is kind of occupying an awkward middle-ground between crime-action and a sandbox game, and what strikes me is the massive potential for expansion. A change in the format of the series where you play not just different characters, but different roles within a city. Corrupt cop, gang leader, young startup, vigilante, etc. In a sense the game has always been a sort of aggregate of film concepts, and I imagine that playing quite well to its strengths.

Very good point, that pretty much clarifies how I felt about San Andreas and IV. I'd also add that Rockstar seem to be desperately trying to have characters who are sympathetic and complex, but the contrast is too high with the ruthless rampages you have to go on to progress the story.

Might aswell post this rant here.

I finally got round to completing GTA 4 and I don't know what to feel. After getting rather invested into the story and characters, I couldn't believe how abruptly the whole thing ended. There were so many loose ends and anti-climaxes that the entire thing just felt like a complete waste of time.

Why mention "the five families" with such importance when you only ever met 2 of them and they turned out to be non-sequetors to the main story?

Why did Bulgarin set himself up to be one of the main villains and then never make another appearance?

Why do you have the option to kill the only other worthwhile villian, Dimitri in a generic shootout, leaving a 3rd rate mob boss you've just met to fill the role in the final mission?


It feels like Rockstar spunked everything they had on the fancy details and the first half of the story (which was the only thing making the generic "drive + shoot" mission at all compelling) , then had interesting to keep it going on later.

I hope the ambition of GTA 5 won't leave it a similarly unbalanced game.

I think the game looks great, perhaps a little disappointed with the characters so far, they seem a lot less interesting than Niko and I can't help but think 3 protagonists may dilute their identities - it's a risky move anyway. But I'm still looking forward to it on the basis on the feel of the world (and hopefully good gameplay to match). Could be wrong about the protagonists, they've only just been introduced after all, that's just my initial impression.

There was a mod for Vice City to make it look stereotypically British, kept the same street layout but changed the streets to be cobbled, had British police cars etc. That sort of thing would (most likely I'm no expert) be easy to do on IV if it hasn't already. Redesigning the entire map to actually represent London would be a collossal undertaking, unlikely unless it was an entirely new game - GTA VI: London anyone?

I actually really liked The Getaway for what it was. A really well done story-based game in a well-made setting.

The gameplay itself was admittedly shite, but it was more about plot. More of an interactive film that you can jump in and explore.

I was going to order off Amazon as they were cheaper and they're my main delivery site but I felt like after getting games as early as 4 days before the street date and I had initially thought I was going to be busy all day tomorrow I'd use shopto.

I had a reliable source tell me they'd dispatch on Friday but they weren't that reliable it seems as it dispatched on Saturday afternoon.

I've never been one for going to midnight releases as I'd probably wait far too long and end up going to bed as soon as I got home. It's easier to just order online and have it delivered in the morning.

BUT, MAM THEY STARTED IT

Really it's down to a number of things which makes these people angry from corruption within the industry, the lack of journalistic professionalism and integrity and a hobby designed to entertain people being made into a serious business. Perhaps this is one of the things that was the last straw for some people.

I must say I was quite outraged when Gone Home whoch was a pathetic excuse for a game that relied far too much on a story only a secondary school student could come up for creative writing which could be completed in less than an hour for 18 quid was given universal praise. Then there was several reviews for Killer is Dead and Dragon's Crown which were give harsh reviews for simply featuring sexy women when both games also feature half naked men.

There is the argument that women are almost 50% (if not more) of the market for games but these surveys are often biased and the women who play games in those surveys only play smartphone or facebook games. They can have that market by all means but they're trying to appeal to women by offering them games which cost more to develop and more to purchase than those phone games.

As for GTA. It has been a boy's game for about 15 years now. To complain about so called misogyny in that game is just plain silly. People are really concerned that games they love are being changed to accommodate a demographic that has no interest in these games. MGS2 was a big example of that. Kojima had made it after doing a focus group and the teenage girl audience couldn't stand playing as a middle aged man so he created a character that ended up being hated for a good 10 years.

Reign in your misogyny there, lad. I think most women without radical feminist views and who enjoy playing the victim or use to it peddle their political agenda are more than capable of shrugging off the same types of online harassment men are expected to. That's not to excuse this handful of marauding children who lack any sense of perspective, but the gender of the reviewer has little to do with it I think.

The gender of the reviewer is...questionable.

She is a male to female transsexual so I'm not entirely sure what her deal is. There are a lot of unhealed wounds over that other transsexual reviewer scamming people into supporting a kickstarter that was supposed to pay for surgery to save her life but was for a sex change instead (that she needed or else she would kill herself which is completely different from a life threatening illness or injury) that ended up in the person who outed her being sacked.

I simply don't want this hobby to become someone's little soapbox to spread that kind of agenda. Just give me fun little video games to play.

The point is they tried to pass it off as if it was a terminal illness. When they said she was going to kill herself it sounded like a very desperate excuse thought up at the last minute.

I am well aware of what depression and mental illness can do to a person but she tried to deceive people. No where near as bad as that wealthy woman who used kickstarter for many scams (the most notable being her 9 year old daughter needed to get into RPG maker camp) but still a lie.

Plus trying to get a sex change operation when you're mentally ill can't be right. I'd imagine you'd need a clear mind before going through with that kind of procedure.

Reviews seem to all be praising the writing and gameplay, but the element I've seen criticised (albeit mildly) in most reviews is the character of Trevor. A torture scene in particular is discussed in many of the reviews, all of which have labelled it deeply unpleasant and unenjoyable. One review said the torture scene was still satire, but it was too subtle to be funny. I'm curious as to how disturbing this scene is now. I imagine it'll be like No Russian and be underwhelming.

Just back from a midnight launch. It was super busy. The branch is in a pretty small town, and I've never seen the high street so busy. Got there at ten to midnight, ended up queuing 40 minutes or so to get the game. About 60 people ahead of me, and when I left the shop there were at least 60 more. Managed to save £9 because everyone in the queue was telling the person next to them that Tesco did the game cheaper so the store did a price match. At one point a fellow in the queue managed to get the store's Xbox controller and type on the screen "TESCO ARE CHEAPA", much to the chagrin of one of the employees who turned off the TV and snatched the controller from the man.

I hope the game is good, I never want to be around people ever again.

With regard to revors introductory mission. Big Spoilers.

Fuck, I liked the guys from Lost & Damned and all of a sudden I've caved Johnnys head in under my boot, fucked Ashley up the shitter and chased down and killed off Clay & Terry. And I figured after he end of TLAD, things might have got better for Johnny at least.

I hadn't played TLAD (or gay tony) even though I got them in a steam sale ages ago but it's an effort to get the damn game running so I never bothered. I feel bad for not playing it now as I don't know what Johnny's story was and how he turned to meth. Don't know who Ashley is either.

I've done 26 main missions so far.

Got to the first point in the story where one can freely switch between the three protagonists.

Really unsure as to whether or not I like Trevor as a character. His interactions with Michael and his family are interesting, and I'm looking forward to seeing how he develops along with Franklin and Michael; but I think his own individual missions are a bit one dimensional, his psychotic rage can be a bit tiresome. Really like Franklin and his assassination missions for Lester, and Michael is a very well developed character who I think could carry a game on his own. I also like how Michael reminds me of Tony Soprano. The first heist was excellent too.

The switching mechanic has made me play this game very differently to previous installments. I play each character differently - I don't feel like Michael or Franklin would start shooting up pedestrians for fun, so I avoid it when playing as them. That says a lot about how well written the characters are. Though the switching is interesting, it doesn't seem all that necessary and has felt a little forced on a couple of missions. I suspect the game was developed around Michael as the sole protagonist for a while, which I think would have worked just as well.

Much better. Cars in GTAIV were very sluggish and attempting even a relatively sharp turn at some speed would cause the car to spin out or flip or worse. GTAV cars are far more enjoyable to drive, especially as Franklin when doing the time slowing thing and weaving in between tiny gaps in oncoming traffic.

I'm quite amazed at how small the map is yet how you don't notice due to the illusion of being part of a much bigger, living, breathing world. It's absolutely fantastic.

I've been playing for about 45+ hours now and I'm prepping for what I think is the last heist. I still haven't done a lot of the side missions and I'm still finding little things to do even in the middle of nowhere, and even little settlements teeming with life up in the mountain ranges and through the lesser-explored areas of the desert.

Bit disappointed at the lack of three dimensional characters though. I miss working for all these different ganglords and such as per the last few games but this has certainly been a pleasant experiment.

I too miss all the different gangsters. I liked GTAIII and Vice City for having all sorts of gangs you end up doing stuff for, the Triads, the Yakuza, the Mafia, the Yardies, the Cartel, the Cubans, the Haitians, all sorts.

I can see why they don't have that in this game though. The main theme of this game seems to be corruption in the government and financial sectors, what with all the references to bank bailouts and torture. Doing a bunch of gang shit and taking out people who get into Grove territory would detract from that.

It's about 10 times bigger. The city of Los Santos itself is probably bigger than the whole of Vice City's map, then there's a massive countryside, smaller settlements out in the sticks, and even the bodies of water can be explored by scuba diving or submarine so they're full of stuff too.

Preferred IV to be honest. Preferred the driving in IV, the soundtrack in IV, the characters in IV, the narrative in IV...

I was worried Rockstar would do this: cram a lot of unnecessary shit into the game at the expense of the core experience. IV was great because it felt like a GTA game, it felt like a return to what had made III such a fantastic game. No unnecessary baggage but just enough to make the world feel whole. But with San Andreas as with V, people complained there weren't planes and stats and all that shit that, for me, ultimately detracts from the overall experience.

Where I'm at we had two choices. Queue outside Game Station for a few hours, fight for a copy of GTA V when we finally got in then queue for a few hours more while waiting to pay for it; or go to Tesco and bypass the queues.
Guess which I chose? Neither because I'm not an idiot. I prefer to be an asshole online

I realised that queueing for a game (at least in this instance) was more about being seen queueing than it was about securing a copy.

>>17082

The Tetraktys:
It is an equilateral triangle composed of dots in four rows, a visual representation of the equation: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10. The Tetraktys contains a hexagon and a three-dimensional cube, as shown in the picture. It is a truly extraordinary figure. It also symbolises key musical intervals: 4:3 (the fourth), 3:2 (the fifth) and 2:1 (the octave). If the Tetraktys is extended by adding new rows, up to a total of 36, the 36th "triangular" number is 666: the Number of the Beast in the Christian Book of Revelation. The number 36 has a crucial significance for the Illuminati, as does the Tetraktys extended to order 36. As for the 666th triangular number, this is equal to 222111. When two successive "triangular" numbers are added, the result is a square number e.g. 1 + 3 = 4; 3 + 6 = 9; 6 + 10 = 16; 10 +15 = 25.

That would be quite amusing. Can't say I've noticed it though.

The police are hopeless in general in GTAV, I don't think I've been arrested once yet. One time I went on a civilian-splatting rampage, trying to get as many cops on me as possible, but after driving over fifty or so people (and working up a moderate amount of police attention) I eventually wound up in an area with no civilians, and before I could find any more to run over, the police just... forgot about me. I get that that's a consequence of the line-of-sight police awareness mechanism, and chance, but it was still a pretty fucking odd moment.

I just bought it yesterday and played for about three hours or so. I was trying to get to a cable car or something, but my car just couldn't go up, so I started to walk up there. I killed what appeared to be a deer, and while I was marvelling at the addition of animals in the game, I got killed by a mountain lion. That was funny and unexpected.

In other news; I hope I get to kill Simion or whatever his name is. He pisses me off.

Sorry, but I hadn't known long myself. My mate mentioned that sharks apparently exist, so naturally the first thing I did was jump in a boat and declare "We're off shark hunting!"

No sooner had we spied a red dot on the radar, and seen a fin popping out of the surf in true Jaws style, he dared me to do the very same thing as you and jump in to try knife it to death. Suffice it to say, I died horribly.

Not without a great deal of panicked button mashing and some screaming beforehand, mind you; is it just me or are things like sharks inherently scarier than any other kind of video game baddy?

I have a private fear of sharks and it does translate into video games. The ones in Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb used to scare me rotton. I'd spend minutes before risking an encounter and would try to kill them with grenades instead of taking a chance (shooting them from dry land was ineffective and speargun ammo rare). Sharks are scary because in games our movement and vision are much more limited, as well as conventional fighting back means.

I think a lot of it also has to do with the fact that game characters are designed to be less maneuverable and more vulnerable in water environments.

That, and large underwater creatures are inherently alien and prone to making us imagine instant death.

GTA IV was better in every respect other than detail and vehicles. The plot is far too samey with little to no real high points in terms of heists (á la 'Three Leaf Clover' from IV or 'Breaking the Bank at Caligula's' from San Andreas) which is disappointing given how much inspiration they apparently drew from the former. The characters aren't nearly developed enough and there simply isn't enough variety in terms of who you work for or why you do what you do (e.g. corrupt feds, immoral business moguls, 'secret wars,' and so on) for it anything to feel truly fleshed out. If anything I felt like I was playing an open-world shooter where you play the bitches of a series of progressively unlikable yet simultaneously two-dimensional suits. It left me wanting a lot more than the base game could offer but I've got high hopes for GTA Online. Let's hope that's not in vain.

That's okay mate.. Although I have to admit it wasn't my money that acquired the Jaggie.

I went on a hillwalking weekend with my older brother in Wales that went tits up for various reasons and we came home early. He financed the entire expedition and the money which was left over from this fiasco was spent on the Atari Jaguar.

I have tremendous respect for Minter (I watched Merak again the other night and it is amazing), he's always seemed like a just a really nice bloke, but I've got to be honest and say that neither Tempest 2k nor Space Giraffe do much for me.

He's had a peculiar knack for picking the losing platform in the past, too. I've long wanted to give the Nuon a shot, just to see, but again, Tempest really isn't my thing.

You'll have trouble playing it without a graffics card.

For comparison my main PC is an i5 of some sort (one the lads here told me was the best bang for buck), 8gb DDR3 and a GTX760. I can max the settings out with that comparatively modest rig, but the framerate is noticeable smoother and more stable moving things down to high and medium.

You probably won't have any trouble getting it to run. Just don't expect much of the eye candy, and prepare for a fair bit of stuttering as it loads new areas in etc.

I'm no graphics card expert but I would assume it's strongly influenced by what screen resolution you are looking to play it at. You don't need a titan to play a well-optimised game at 1366x768 but I would think most laptop GPUs would chug at resolutions above 1080p.

I think with a game like GTA V it's a bit more complex than that, really. Back in the days of arena shooters where everything was just loaded into ram and your performance was a sheer matter of pixel-crunching horsepower, yeah, resolution was probably the biggest factor. But a modern game like this has a whole host of other issues that make it more dependent on the subtle ways your components interact. I'd suspect memory/VRAM and disk speed is the biggest factor in this particular title, with the constant need to stream new stuff as you hurtle down the freeway in a sports car. But there's also pedestrian/traffic AI and physics for the CPU to worry about, weather, day night cycle and such. The actual graphics output isn't going to be the bottleneck for this game on a low-end rig.

But then I could be wrong. Just pirate it and find out, lad, don't feel guilty. The online mode is rife with hackers anyway.

Right, 1366×768.
The problem is that I haven't played many games on it — I cannot refer how good/bad it is at games. HL2 went absolutely nice, but it's 10 years old, if not more. Deus Ex: Human Revolution was comparatively playable, albeit the FPS being somewhere around 25-35. I don't remember the graphics settings for the latter; probably between medium and high, but not low.

I'd probably do that if it wasn't the sheer size of the download. 50 GB, right?

It started on High nearly everywhere except the Texture Quality setting. I have also lowered the quality of shadows setting because, well, the exhaust was too damn hot. It's still quite hot. The game is rather playable. The FPS is somewhere between 30 and 45.

I think I won't be playing V on this machine lest I fry something.

Do you have a tool like Speccy to measure the actual temperature? On my laptop the motherboard can get above 70C when gaming, think you've got to worry if it starts going north of 90C though.

Laptop components are (or should be) designed to withstand higher temperatures than their desktop counterparts to account for the poorer airflow.

Be aware that Speccy won't guarantee accurate motherboard temperatures. On my machines, the motherboard temperature alternates between 60 and 120 (not fluctuates, alternates). The numbers you want to look at are CPU and HD temperatures. You don't really want those going far above 70 and 55 respectively. (On my desktop, full-on Prime95 gets the CPU no higher than 59C.)

Nay, I don't. The metal above the exhaust tends to be between warm and rather hot.
Good that you've reminded me about this kind of thing though. Cheers.
> or should be
They probably should, but there's no guarantee they actually are. I need this machine, so I'd be careful with it.

70C is about right for CPUs, that's Intel's recommended max temp for their modern CPUs, anyway - the chips won't start falling over until >100C, but they'll still function fine at 80-90, you're just running the risk of shortening their lifespan. It's worth pointing out that some models of GPU have, by design, been running at 95C as their intended standard temperature for years now:

With respect, I'm not sure why you'd prioritise monitoring HDD temp as they never get particularly hot; unlike CPU/GPU, they don't get much hotter from working harder. Monitoring CPU/GPU temps is significantly more important as they fluctuate to a much greater degree, and both are dependent on heatsinks and fans to keep them cool. Heatsinks get clogged with dust, fans can break. HDDs just sit there.

The renderer on the PC port of GTA IV is fucking useless and not a good indicator of anything much, incidentally. But yeah, get speccy or hwmonitor and check what temperatures you're seeing with various games and go from there.

In a laptop it's a good proxy for internal temperature, and unlike the motherboard you'll almost always get a reliable reading. High CPU temp? It's working hard. High CPU and HDD temps? You probably have a ventilation problem.

Interesting idea, but laptop HDDs aren't ever actively ventilated. In any case, it's usually obvious enough if you've got a ventilation problem - the CPU will be idling at a high temperature, and the fan will be constantly going at full blast. The HDD temp is irrelevant for diagnosing air flow issues.

I suppose that if you had high CPU at idle and low temps everywhere else that could be an indicator of poor heatsink seating/shitty thermal paste application, but that's kind of an edge case.

They are, however, made out of materials that conduct heat, and come with working heat sensors. The temperature fluctuates a lot less than the CPU so to borrow an analogy from statistics you know you're looking at the man and not the dog.

It's pretty obvious what you're looking at if you're seeing high CPU temperatures and ~0% CPU utilisation. I'm trying to imagine a situation in which the HDD temp reading would be useful; if you can't get a laptop's CPU to idle then you've got other problems.
