Can't wait! Have the day off tomorrow :DDDDDD
BigShotSmoov007  +   734d ago
Same here, going to be on it all day. What system you playing on?
Saints94  +   733d ago
Xbox 360

I'm really sorry to burst your bubble guys, but my guess is that the servers are going to struggle staying up tomorrow. I'm praying that it all goes smooth, but if you remember how Diablo III's servers were when that first went live, it wasn't pretty.

Lets just hope that Rockstar is more prepared than Blizzard was.
AllroundGamer  +   733d ago
like metalgod88 said, they will probably be problems with the servers in the first days, just like with the social club when i couldn't make a damn photo in the game cause the club feature didn't work for about two days.
Spinal  +   733d ago
Yep I took two days off for this. If the servers are down good thing I'll have BF4 beta as backup to play.

Add me on Xbox live: Spinalc0rd.

Lol at getting 27 disagrees for saying you play it on the Xbox 360. What's wrong with you guys??
insomnium2  +   733d ago

Perhaps people dislike (and disagree) the x360 because it's from MS and MS is a s*itty company?

I didn't disagree with Saints but I do recognize that MS as sure as hell is a s*itty company for gaming. The cancer of gaming if you will. There's plenty of data to back that up too.

Now luckily since MS went full retard and showed people their true color with all their DRM BS even the people who have been oblivious to their BS so far got their eyes peeled for that one and the trainwreck of a console business (from a gamers and consumers pov ofc) is hitting a wall.

Wow! All Saints94 said was that he got the game for 360 and he got 50 disagrees.

You people (the majority of the n4g community) are such scumbags. Grow up.

@insomnium: you're the exact kind of scumbag i'm talking about. the hypocrisy is amazing. Sony has tons of documented misdealings. They are both corporations that only care about money. You remind me of a liberal that just automatically hates Fox News without realizing MSNBC is just as much trash.

Sony fanboys literally ruin the gaming the community.

I like PS3, but i always get multiplayer games for 360 because the ps3 community is loaded with people like you. you should be embarrassed.

@common sense

Sony has been eating unjustified s*it ever since 2005 up until only a few years ago. No matter what documents you have before that everything is erased after the BS they went through.

After MS goes through even some UNjustified BS we'll talk when they will be forgiven. It'll take years and it has to be UNJUSTIFIED too so all the heat regarding RROD and DRM stuff doesn't count. That is JUSTIFIED. There is a big difference.
CommonSense  +   732d ago

This is the lie Sony Fanboys love to spew.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   733d ago
Why would people disagree with you for playing it on 360?

@Phinch either that or the PS3 is N4G preferred console.

@you guys

As I said above:

"Perhaps people dislike (and disagree) the x360 because it's from MS and MS is a s*itty company?"
BigShotSmoov007  +   733d ago
The sad truth about this website is that the majority of people on here are pro sony/playstation. If you mention microsoft or xbox then you have to deal with automatic 10 disagrees right off the bat. Just using the word, "mirco" gets you 5 disagrees. The website has really become more and more of a sony fanboy playground and just getting all those disagrees for just saying your going to play a game on your 360 just proved it. Too many fanboys and not enough real gamers to have decent debates on this website.

It's been this way for 6 or 7 years. It's pathetic. It's why i spend most of my game news search time on reddit. THe information is the same (though it's usually on reddit first), but the community isn't comprised of retards.

Basically, these people are perpetual children who got a PS1 or 2 when mommy and daddy felt like buying it, and that's the console they swore allegiance to.

I was able to own both a PS2 and an Xbox, so I realized both had their pros and cons...and I had no automatic, unwarranted hatred for one or the other.

The only thing I hate about Sony is their fanbase. They are so unpleasant to be around that I refuse to buy 3rd party games on their console if I have any intention of playing online. They are truly despicable people.
insomnium2  +   733d ago
@common sense

If you hate the PS3 fanbase then where were you in 2006-2009 when all we ever heard was propaganda and BS against the PS3?

You say it's been like this for 6-7 years? Really? On what planet? I could swear "teh PS3 haz no games" and "anything below 90 in MC is not AAA" among others was the norm 5-6 years ago. After that was "teh zales".

You lie son.
BallsEye  +   733d ago
Exchanging positive comments about sony and negative ones about ms is what keeps these people alive. They wake up everyday just to do it. Let's not destroy their little world, that's all they got.

You have to have TWO people with you to start a mission....oh that's bullcrap. I want to play through it by myself and my own pace.
Rainstorm81  +   733d ago
Well it is GTA Online......Isnt that meant to be Multiplayer?
-Foxtrot  +   733d ago
Not really because it's free roam and has a passive mode. They said the whole point of passive mode so people can get on with missions and stuff.

Hey I paid for this game whether I like online or not I still want the option to at least play the missions by my self.
Bathyj  +   733d ago
Im with you. I dont see why extra missions should be denied to me because I want to play them by myself.
beepbopadoobop  +   733d ago
Maybe the missions require at least 3 people most of the time? Probably instead of wanting to use more power controlling two AI companions they just left them as player only companions to save a bit of power to use elsewear while running online?

Just thinking out loud.
nunley33  +   733d ago
at least gamebolt didn't break the info down into 3 or 4 pages.
3-4-5  +   733d ago
Was reading more about it in my GameInformer today and I can't recall what exactly it was, but a few new things got me re-excited again.

Online is going to be awesome.
TrevorPhillips  +   733d ago
So excited! Can't wait to play this :D
Bathyj  +   733d ago
?!? I thought you were In it.
DarkBlood  +   733d ago
oh well i thought it wasnt going to happen october 1st lol
hankmoody  +   733d ago
Easy on the expectations, ladies and gents. As excited as I am for this thing myself, it's probably going to be one buggy launch that's gonna take some time to smooth over.
H3ADWOUND81  +   733d ago
It's one of the rare occasions where I can say it's times like this I'm glad I'm unemployed.. Playing GTA Online now till Christmas.. Woohoo....

insomnium2  +   733d ago
Even if I was unemployed I would have my family to take care of. The two older kids (8 and 10yo) are much easier but our new 1yo is a handfull.

In addition I have not only one job but 2 jobs (one on weekends) so I have only 5-6 hours of gamingtime per week tops atm. A little vacation from life would be nice once in a while.
andibandit  +   733d ago
What platform are you playing it on?
GadgetGooch  +   733d ago
Good on ya lad....
PsylentKiller  +   733d ago
I'm almost in the same boat. I'm on workers compensation. I had a 250 lbs. box crush my hand causing a severe nerve disease called CRPS. Thank God I still have almost full dexterity albeit with extreme pain most of the time. As a gamer, I don't know what I'd do if I lost the use of my hand. Anyway, I can't work so I have plenty of time to play games. Cool part is using a controller is a great therapy exercise, doctor approved. Lol.
So, early tomorrow morning I'm downloading the BF4 beta and playing that until GTA Online releases and then I'm spending the rest of the day in Los Santos. I just don't know what I want my character to look like. I usually spend forever creating my characters. I don't want to do that this time. I want to jump right in so I need to start thinking about it now.
T2  +   733d ago
You can play vids but not work ? Can u crush my hand ? Lol
tcozzens  +   733d ago
Any idea of what time it'll launch at?
maximus1985  +   733d ago
im hoping midnight tonight!!
tcozzens  +   733d ago
it's actually around 7 am EST
beepbopadoobop  +   733d ago
7EST sounds like midnight GMT just in case anyone is interested
CommonSense  +   733d ago

This is completely wrong.
NarooN  +   733d ago
Rockstar themselves warned that the launch most likely won't be a smooth ride. It was the same when GTA IV first launched, I could barely ever even connect to the servers, they were getting slammed so hard.
BALLARD32  +   733d ago
If it's too difficult to get in a game, I guess I'll play the BF4 beta instead.
Slysi  +   733d ago
Sorry m8 was meant to be an agree
Detoxx  +   733d ago
I love GTA 5 but it's just that I love BF4 abit more.. So I'll be playing the BF4 Beta
xActionBasturdx  +   733d ago
Im not touching bf4 until next gen on ps4. I dont want to play the watered down version of the game after what i've been seeing
PsylentKiller  +   733d ago
I'll be playing BF4 on PC until GTA Online hits. BF4 will not be watered down for me. My rig can handle it. Although, I've been playing BF3 at 720p and low settings to check out what BF4 might look like on the new consoles. It still looks great. I can't wait. Six more weeks! I traded in my 360's already and was about to trade in my PS3 but GTA and Beyond: Two souls changed my mind.
Slysi  +   733d ago
I'm not expecting too much tommorow as I know how laggy it's going to be,but I shall be there once I finish work.

CommonSense  +   733d ago
You think that's bad? I'm going to be out of town 5 days after PS4 comes out, and several days into the Xbox One launch. I'm looking forward to the trip, but the timing couldn't be worse.
isa_scout  +   733d ago
I just want to know what time tomorrow it will launch....It's going to be amazing, and I'm running out of things to do in the singleplayer. Except for finding the nuclear waste(which is super boring in that slow ass submersible) I've done everything else.Can't wait to tear through Los Santos with all my friends!!!

Ahhhh... So the fourth "mystery" character in the character wheel was your multiplayer character? I thought there was an unlockable fourth way into the game, but MP guy is cool too.
ALARM-clock  +   733d ago
First I'll try GTA online, if that fails I will try the BF4 beta, if both fail I can fall back on Kingdoms of Amalur, which goes up free with PS+ tomorrow. :)
PsylentKiller  +   733d ago
PS+ is the best thing to happen to gaming since online play.

avangerironman  +   733d ago
i love gta 5 rockstar but why microtransactions for GTA Online why :'(
Zancruz  +   733d ago
The Microtransactions are optional and will most likely not break the game... All players will have to Level Up before buying really good weapons and stuff, The most likely thing that will happen is players that choose to pay will have the best properties, which I can't see effecting anyone.
avangerironman  +   733d ago
well that's good then :) thanks to let me know
oof46  +   733d ago
I'm gonna play the Bf4 beta until it's over and then hop over to GTA Online. By that time, any bugs or online issues should be resolved.
LoTuZ  +   733d ago
Not surprised.
Sadist3  +   733d ago
Forget GTA. Battlefield 4 beta is released tomorrow

I reckon cross-platform would be the way to go.
Looking forward to the online either way.
Dannycr  +   733d ago
Well, it is not working (PS3) Cannot host online game error. Plus I HATED! the character creation mode. Why in the heavens do I have to create myself based on what my grandparents look like? That's completely unnecessary. The selection of looks is really limited and I never look remotely close as to how I look.
PR_FROM_OHIO  +   733d ago
I'm glad im not the only person who thinks thats stupid AF! Lol Grandparents really??
