Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most talked about games at the moment and the title, set to be one of the biggest releases next year, with new information on the blockbuster franchise has been wanted for some time.
Consider me excited.
These screen shots are so damn impressive I don't even know where to start. The draw distance is insane. I can't wait to perch up on a building and blast mofo's away!!
I hope you and everyone realizes these are PC screens.
Azmatik... u are wrong this is for the Gameboy
@Azmatik Supposedly all the demos and screen thus far have been from the PS3 version. I remember reading that on some website, but I'll wait for actual gameplay footage running on consoles first.
2013's gonna be a very interesting year.
I just woke up just to see this :D
Not too excited about having multiple main characters
Yeah me too. I hope you can play through the campaign of each without having to switch.
Why?, I'm going to wait and reserve my judgement.
Because to me it always seems to make the game feel less personable. When you spend the game playing multiple people it makes it feel like your being fircefully shifted around from character to character and it makes games less enjoyable.
Not always, but I really think we should give R* a chance. It seems like you'll be playing as a crew of 3 people, kind of like an rpg or a fps that has a squad of people (like Bad company for example, only all the people in your squad/crew will be playable) I think that this could be great if they do it right, and I have faith in R*. thats my speculation any way. btw I didn't disagree with you lol
Lol I believe you. In still going to get the game and I hope they do a good job too.
"What about Los Santos though? Including the interior and exterior spaces it’s bigger than the worlds of Red Dead Redemption, San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV combined, with room to spare." No way. This is f***ng crazy! As for the 3 main protagonists, I'm sceptical, but not disapointed as lots of people seem to be. It's like GTA IV complete edition in one game. Rockstar have yet to disappoint me & I don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon.
Jesus christ, how on earth is this going to run well on my Ps3... The three protagonists thing sounds exciting if you ask me, especially if they've implemented it as well as it seems like they have. What I don't understand though, is that if you can switch characters at any time in the world, what do the other two characters do while you're playing as the third one? Do they just stand there? Still, it could lead to some really interesting set pieces and a really interesting narrative.
I've read on an other site that the rest of the protagonists will return to their daily occupations while you're controlling one of them. So you could find yourself in a "funny situation" if you get back in one of them.
Ha! That's awesome! Thanks for the info.
So what happens if you waste 1 of them? That would cause a really interesting situation. But I am pretty sure that you won't be able to kill them. Motorola RAZR i
Let's see how intuitive character swapping is before we get disappointed, yeah people? *It'll run fine on PS3 ...oh you of little faith!
It will, the textures aren't high res and the only resource intesive thing I see on those screen shots are the draw distance and the Ambient Oclussion
Although the character switching doesn't sound amazing at first read, I think if they utilize them well and get some deep backgrounds into them and what they do, it could be possible if later in the story mode they some how meet each other and possibly team up in the final mission to take down whoever is the main bad guy. they could use their specific skills to work together and YOU have the option to think about how your going to use their particular skill sets to beat the story mode. On a side note, those Jet and skyscraper pictures look absolutely MIND BLOWING xD Making them by Desktop backgrounds :)
If I read the gameinformer article correctly, they work together throughout the entire story. I think peoples main concern with the multiple characters issue, is that people have this fear that they won't get properly fleshed out as a character, but from what I read in the gameinformer article, the guys at rockstar have put crazy detail into the city of los santos, so I don't see why they don't do that with the protagonists. If it's about the fear of CONSTANTLY switching, I think houser just worded that wrong, im confident that you will be able to spend as long as you want with the character of your choice.
ahh interesting. you have a point there actually, its going to be great to see what particular thing each protagonist does throughout their respectful story modes. Thanks for clarifying that for me walks.
This looks incredible. Hope it lives up to expectations. I thought GTA 4 was pretty good but felt like they could do better.
OMG Can't wait for this game.....lost for words.
I wish we werent in midern time. 80s or 90s
Wow......i'm officially excited about this game!
I think the 3 character idea could be good. I read that on one of the missions, you can control one guy who has a hostage and a pistol which you can use to take out enemies with or you can choose to swap character during the moment and switch to another who is using a sniper from a far and take them out that way. so if its shit like this, it will add replay-ability big style as there will be multiple ways to go about doing a mission..which is awesome
you guys do realise what this could mean? 3 main characters means maybe online story co-op play!
Detailed Landscape design, authentic lighting and more seamless physics should add to a more action impressionable feel. I'm sure Rockstar will have ramped up character action physics away from GTA IV's cumbersome combat so i'm psyched for the new choiced emphasis to be had.
Must get this on pc even if I must steal a pc. http://gamingeverything.com...
2 to 3 disk on 360 is pretty much confirmed from all the info about how big the game is...guess its time to dust off the ps3 for this one.
