Re: GTA V Announced

Everything looks great... except the driving. GTA IV's driving needed some work, but I liked that cars in that game had weight and momentum and required some skill to master. The driving in the trailer looked much more arcadey, I fear that instead of tightening up and improving on GTA IV's handling they've abandoned it in favour of something simpler.

Re: GTA V Announced

players can now go to watch concerts & gigs, with special guest appearances.
Here's hoping for more Phil Collins concerts!

I replayed GTA4 a few months ago and tried to simulate GTA5's multiple protagonists by cutting between the main game and the two episodes in the correct mission order. Telling three concurrent stories was a cool experiment, and it mostly works, but it does mess with the pacing of the three stories. I was forced to rush certain parts of Niko's story, and there's long gaps in Johnny and Luis' stories. Since GTA5 is being created as a single experience, hopefully they perfect the formula.

Re: GTA V Announced

I'm guessing that there will be missions among them all that won't be unlocked until you do a specific mission from someone else, which would feel more dynamic and personal compared to simply selecting a mission marker from the map.

Re: GTA V Announced

The GTA5 map has leaked online after the game's strategy guide began arriving in stores. If you don't want to be spoiled, don't click the link.

That map somehow manages to look smaller than the San Andreas map, when that's not the case at all.

Late to this party but... don't see Las Venturas in that map. So no gambling?

Re: GTA V Announced

Someone in the GTAV forums posted an image of a building that has a sign that appears to say casino on it near the racetrack, so gambling may still be in. No Las Venturas or San Fierro in this GTA, though.

Re: GTA V Announced

There might be gambling, as there are casinos pretty much anywhere these days, but they're focusing on Los Santos and the Countryside. Might be possible to see Las Venturas and San Fierro in the distance though.

The scale of that map is dubious, just look at the size of the airports. This map appears to be much more accurate:



Gameplay footage is starting to leak out, but Rockstar is quashing it pretty quick. Some observations from what I've seen:

1) If you clip your plane's wing off a building, your wing will fall off and you'll spiral out of control. Awesome.
2) The Busted and Wasted screens are back when you're arrested or killed.
3) The strippers now take their tops off in the strip clubs. Truly, we have entered video games' golden age.
