Los Santos (Los Angeles parody): a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
Multiplayer & Co-Operative ("GTA Online"): [open world] x16 players - Launches Oct/1/2013
Gametypes: Free Mode ; Deathmatch ; Race ; Heists ; Rally ; Capture ; Survival ; Hold ; Contend ; Raid ; Parachuting

Seeing as how there's been a ton of info coming out lately about the game, I figured it would be best to start a thread.

Trailer 1 [youtube.com]

Trailer 2 [youtube.com]

Game Informer recently did an 18-20 page article on GTAV. I'm not posting magazine scans but you can easily find them online. The biggest news being that Los Santos is 5-10x bigger than RDR's map and that you'll be playing as three characters instead of one this time around (with the ability to switch between them during missions and while roaming).

Hopefully it's much better than GTAIV, not just bigger.

Iagree

First thing they need to fix is the shitty soundtrack. Ahh I miss Vice City and San Andreas!

Kyle: Dude! I almost thought those Afghani kids talked you into not liking America.
Stan: No, dude. America may have some problems, but it's our home. Our team. And if you don't wanna root for your team, then you should get the hell out of the stadium.
Kyle: Yeah.
Stan: <salutes the American flag> Go America.
Kyle: <salutes> Go America...
Stan: Go Broncos
Kyle: Yeah go Broncos.
Cartman: Yeah...

I actually enjoyed GTAIV (and loved the purposely empty feeling the game gave you when you "won").

But I'm definitely stoked for V. I asked for this game as an xmas present but it comes out after Christmas though right?

I largely enjoyed GTAIV as well. It certainly wasn't a 10 but it was a good game nevertheless..

I just want true randomized start/end points in multiplayer's Cops N' Crooks. Wasn't really impressed by the 2nd trailer at all. Never could finish a GTA campaign.

Interesting. I don't think I've watched the second trailer yet. I know I saw all of the screen shots they released including the shots of the golf course and the others. I'll have to check out that other trailer. I already put down $5 at BB for the PS3 version of the game, but only after they got those viewfinders and posters in.

EDIT: That really does sound like an older Tommy Vercetti in both trailers to me. It'll be interesting to see who is playing that character when the cast list is revealed.

Quote from SelfRighteousDbag(Romeo from CAG) :
From my own experiences, he uses and abuses the sites he is a member of. He cares about no one but himself. If there's a deal ANYWHERE, he is the person to buy 100x of whatever it is to resell for profit, and usually get the deal pulled or canceled.

He lives near me. A couple years ago, he bought five copies of a game on clearance at target closest to me. Bragged about it here then soon found out the trade value wasn't worth a 'flip'. When I called him on it for being a scumbag for buying out the stock, he PM'ed me and told me he would now purposely return them to a target far away from me so I can't get a copy for myself.
Whine more, please.

I thought it was a solid 9.

I had more fun with the Episodes From Liberty City than I did with the main GTA IV game. The ending was meh and the whole dating thing they tried carrying over from San Andreas was crap to me.

Actually most of the side missions or activities were crap to me. Just give me a longer main game with a decent storyline and stop adding extraneous garbage to the game.

The Cannonball Run race in GTA IV and I think Episodes was pretty fun if you had a decent group to play the game with. Mind you, sometimes it could turn into an untimed Deathmatch game by the end of it if you had enough people with enough weapons blasting one another.

But you could set it up so there were cops, tons of traffic AND set it up so you were racing from one end of the city to the other. Those were fun, since you had to dodge police, other players and NPC's all at the same time sometimes.

Not to mention Hangman's Noose was a good challenge most times, especially if you had auto aim turned off for your weapons. Sometimes you'd be swamped by 10-12 SWAT guys at once and be trying to fend off 2-3 while at the same time getting popped by that one you didn't see sneaking up behind you.

I actually changed my pre-order deposit yesterday at BB when I went to go trade some stuff in. I paid off the full amount there now, since apparently BB's system allows it now.

But unfortunately their system still can't allow you to just keep adding money/credit to the pre-order while not having to cancel it. So they had to go in and cancel the original pre-order and then re-do it to add the full amount.

I still had almost enough for another copy left between the two gift cards I had with credit on them, but I ended up buying Max Payne 3 today for $20 from the DOTD for in-store pickup. Since I'm gonna be in the area tomorrow anyway to check on a few job applications I put in I can just swing by and grab that on my way home.

Good idea. We should start an SD club and compete for the best rated poo.

Roland - can you please start a Doodle and get people's availability?
