Campaign: [open world] x1 player - "How long to beat?" [howlongtobeat.com]
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

I just assumed GTAV was releasing in October like other GTA's (so September was a nice surprise, personally), I guess I missed the release date in the other trailers before?

the original RD was early 2013 or some financial terminology like Q2 2013 or something like such.

You got a question about Kohl's? Ask me or stop by the Official Kohl's & More thread! :: my first true FP deal

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?

The last 4 GTA games have come out in the Spring, which was when they were saying GTA 5 would be released

What? I guess I don't know which versions you're talking about or if you're counting expansions/spinoffs (The Lost and Damned, Vice City Stories on PS2) but no matter how you count them, the last 4 certainly did not debut in the spring.

GTA4 did (April).
Chinatown Wars did (March).
The Lost and Damned did not (February).
Ballad of Gay Tony did not (October).
Vice City Stories did not (October).
Liberty City Stories did not (October).
San Andreas did not (October).
Vice City did not (October).
GTA3 did not (October).

Ports of these games may have been release later on different systems and they may have been in spring, but for the last decade, original releases have mostly been in October for GTA games. They are getting back closer to their originally traditional release window with this one.

Ya, I was counting Red Dead (GTA on horses as far as im concerned) as well plus googling the release dates of the older ones gave me the complete wrong dates so I was a little off

I'm LMFAO @ most of the comments on the R* news page. That definitely explains all the squeaky voices I heard over my headset in the GTA IV and Episodes multiplayer modes. I really wish the ESRB was actually enforced strictly at times. Of course, if it were then the COD/BF3 and other M rated game servers would be largely empty.laugh out loud

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.

New previews after the press finally saw gameplay. I was mainly looking forward to the multiplayer, but now I may complete the storyline of a 'GTA' for the first time; no horrible shooting controls and the ability to swap in a second between 3 characters.

Quote :
Summary From GTAV.net
● You can buy property; houses, garages and businesses can all be purchased for extra revenue sources.
● You can customize yourself with haircuts, new clothes, and tattoos
● Each character is rated in a series of skill categories: Stamina, Shooting, Strength, Stealth, Flying, Driving, Mechanic, Lung Capacity.
● Each character has a 'Special': Franklin is an adrenalin junkie and can slow down time while driving; Trevor has a frenzy mode, where he does double damage, takes half damage, and has a unique melee attack; Michael has his own version of bullet time
● Specials are governed by a meter, it drains after use and recharges slowly
● Other skill categories are shared and can be improved by completing missions, side missions, activities and more
● Trevor will always be the best pilot, Franklin will always be the best driver but each can improve their proficiency a little
● One of the skill categories is stealth, suggesting players will be able to take different approaches to missions
● Pay N Sprays can also mod cars with paint jobs, new wheels, window tints, grilles, spoilers. Upgrades to suspension, engine and brakes can also be made.
● Weapons can also be customized with laser sights, scopes, silencers, and high capacity magazines
● You can pick up hitchikers, do stunt jumps and flying challenges, take part in yoga, golf, tennis or bike races.
● Some boats will include gear such as wetsuit, flippers and tanks for diving
● An underwater ecosystem exits, "the sea is teaming with fish and sharks"
● Treasures can be found underwater, but NPCs will be looking for them too
● GTAV rewards exploration, there's no signposting underwater, so you'll have to find the treasure the hard way
● Dives won't offer massive payoffs, but will "help grease the wheels"
● The character selection wheel is split into four triangles: Franklin, Trevor, Michael, and your multiplayer character
● It seems there's a closer relationship between single and multiplayer. Simply pressing "Down" on the d-pad will drop the play in and out of MP.
Rockstar has said it will reveal more on multiplayer in the future
● There are subtle differences in the way each character moves to reflect their personalities; Michael is slower and deliberate.
● Rockstar says there will be five times as many pedestrians in GTA V as there were in Grand Theft Auto IV
● There's a "crazy level of detail": Tourist buses can be boarded for a tour of celebrity homes, film posters are plastered on the walls, men in comedy costumes try to corner you outside the Cathay Theatre, including the Superman-like Impotent Rage and Master Chief riff, Space Ranger.
● iFruit, the game's new phone, can be used to snap pictures and upload them to Rockstar's Social Club
● The phone also has apps. In addition to the camera there is internet, contacts, social media, a calendar, and a replay missions app. There are three more Rockstar hasn't yet revealed.
● Michael's obsession with classic films translates into in-game set pieces based on real world movies. In the demo the three characters mount a heist very similar to the one from Heat.
● 'Mini heists' are used to teach the player about preparation. Players must secure vehicles, outfits, masks, the getaway vehicle.
● These build up to a bigger heist where the execution must be flawless. They'll require the right crew and players will have to decide on the cheap option, which results in less skilled people, or paying more for skilled crew members that will take a larger cut.
● You can switch between Franklin, Trevor and Michael during a cutscene, manually, or automatically when the AI takes control for you
● Each character has a job to do, how much you switch yourself in or let the computer do, is entirely up to you
● If you die the game reloads to the last checkpoint, even if two other characters are alive
● Although it's up to the player when they switch, dialogue will suggest ideal moments. For example, when Michael and Franklin are being overwhelmed by snipers, Michael might ask for Trevor's help.
● A combat roll has been introduced for moving between cover
● There is a wider field of vision, and players can run-and-gun
● A deer and a wildcat was spotted in the mountains.

WinkI used to play GTA IV and/or Episodes with some people from another deal site on a Sunday before. Some of the modes are still fun to play in those games. For example, doing a Cannonball Run is pretty fun still, but can quickly turn into deathmatch on wheels if you get enough people who are good shots.

I also still play Turf Wars from GTA IV with a buddy or two who I used to play solely TDM/DM with before.

But for the most part I play around with glitches and trying to see if I can learn to fly a chopper decently under the map like my one buddy I still play with. Although some nights the same friend I play Turf Wars with has a friend sit at a set location and we collect vehicles so he can snap a screenshot of it all sitting there.

It'll be great. I don't think GTA is suitable name for this series now. It's just more than GTA.

As long as the attack jet they've shown in the trailers is available in multiplayer and/or the multiplayer doesn't have random disconnects and what I've been calling the 'kicked glitch' for years now, then I don't care what else I can really do.

The 'kicked glitch', for the record, is when you get a disconnect and go to rejoin the game and get the message that 'the other players have chosen to kick you from the game' even when no one was voting to kick anyone.
