Rockstar sequel rumored to put players in control of a handful of characters, return to the sunny part of the West Coast.
GTA5 to put multiple Hamster participants in their underground secret city of Furminsk and follow a tale of crime and corruption. It will possibly have mini hamster hovercrafts and will be full of popping dialogue. What amuses me is I have the same amount of evidence to support my theory as Gamespot does. Nothing.
This game sounds more interesting than GTA V will likely be.
6 days, guys. You only have to wait 6 days and we'll know everything. Stop making stuff up and saying it's news.
oh god thanks lightofdarkness,,now i know when the info is coming, im kind of lazy when its comes to google search
What concerns me is that this is a recurring story, so it may very well be accurate. Kotaku ran with it a few days back. Now, I'm not concerned that its set in what may possibly be Los Santos, but that there are multiple playable characters. Thats too big a departure from the series for me...
I hate the idea of multiple characters. I love that GTA has focused on one character. It makes for a better story.
Rockstargames are doing multiple characters probably because they cant use just 1 and u can customize them throughly.. since saints row franchise already using that.
Would love to see multiple characters played in a interweaving almost pulp fiction esque way
funny how Rockstar are only releasing this news with the fact that Saints Row 3 is on the way, has been getting awesome positive previews from game site writers & reviewers who have played it. Really scummy timing from Rockstar I think, considering there game won't hit for a long while, & might not even be part of this gen...Also couple that with the fact that many, many GTA fans really were unimpressed with GTA4 & it's more serious approach. Rockstars blatent attempt to undermine another great open world sandbox game & there only real competition is not lost on me, & I think it is scummy of them in a big way, as it is plain simple fact that all Rockstar need to do is announce a new game & thats it......media hype is ON, set to 11 outta 10, whereas poor ol' Volition, after Red Faction's major floppage (which resulted in the series cancellation, which irks me, especially considering I was more a fan when they were fps's), anyway, Volition have never garnered 1/1000th the media attention & hype, the GTA online fanboy accolades, or the watercooler, schoolyard & online forum banter that GTA gets & will continue to get with the GTA series. Anyway, I WILL be buying Saints Row 3 without question, or a 2nd thought, whereas, after GTA4's less fun gameplay & mission variety, I will be wary & not commit to GTA5 as easily. Truth is, I have played a fair few hours of GTA4 & I do like the game, but it does become monotonous moreso than Saints Row 2, & even though GTA4 has the overall better all round production in terms of graphics, sound, story & such, Saints Row 2 smashes it hard in one crucial area......THE FUN FACTOR. The funny part is that I didn't realize how great Saint Row 2 was at first, as I'd play it & be thrown off by it's different layout to GTA in the menus, map layout & such, I'd played it for a few hours the 1st time & liked it, but wasn't completely captivated, & this continued where I'd play it for 1hr, 40mins, etc, etc, here & there but it wasn't doing it for me....then the other week I put it on, thinking I'll give it another try with intent to trade it in for something else....But I fired it up & I was at about 16% completion, then I got to about 17-18% & played a mission in a helicopter blowing crap outta a dudes drugs.....I was then hooked & the game started taking on another level...Total carnage & fun. Saints Row 3 is the refined version, that is gonna take down GTA (maybe except in story, but who cares).
