DSOG. I always hated their lame ass clickbait.

Magog936d ago

Looks like a PG-13 "The Sims" mod.

Flawlessmic936d ago

Are they really not going to show us any further gameplay videos before release...

Magog936d ago

Don't buy it day one. By day 2 there will be thousands of hours of footage on YouTube.

wwinterj936d ago

I'll be waiting for the physical version anyway so by the time that's out plenty of footage will be available.

G3ng4r936d ago

Wait and see just how much is stripped away from these games. The soundtracks are the biggest deciding factor for me but it would also be cool if censorship isn't too prevalent for the sake of emotionally fragile people who aren't going to play this anyway.

You'll get disagrees for this, but you're right. This is one of the things that concerns me about GTA going forward. People say that the success of V is the reason why GTA VI hasn't been announced yet, and they'd be correct. But I also think red tape over "sensitive" issues is another reason why R* are being a bit hesitant. The toxic political climate of the previous few years, and the rise of so called "cancel culture" in media. GTA has always been pure satire, and listening to the radio talk shows in V proves that to be at its most hilariously brilliant truth. Even the NPC's in certain areas are political stereotypes, as well as the police. If you have to tip-toe around these things, it literally kills what makes GTA GTA.

The developers have said there will be no cut content so let's see

Pocahontas936d ago

They don’t have to tip toe but calling it now you’ll play as a girl.

@Pocahontas

Wouldn't have a problem with that at all. In fact, that sounds good if she would be a part of a selection of characters like in V. Rockstar are generally very good with how they handle characters.

You guys must be super young if you think R* is now stooping to being "censored". GTA 3 entire cover art was changed along with the game being delayed by months. Why? Because the elements of what happened on 9/11 could be seen on the original cover and the game had "planes" in it, which was removed. Plus the police cars being changed from blue and white (NYPD) to black. Them removing the ability to fly planes is far worse then the most recent example of "censorship" which is them removing the confederate flag from Phil Cassidy in Vice City, which has no affect on the game what so ever. Minimal changes like this are just far better to do than deal with all the BS sensitive people from both the early 2000's and now. And being 100% honest, anyone who actually has a serious issue with this type of "censorship" might as well be thrown in with the crowd of sensitive pansies of this generation. Mostly because that type of change is so miniscule.

For anyone who wasn't aware. Here's an article about GTA 3: https://today.in-24.com/tec...

^ You miss the point but it's probably better you aren't given pointy things anyway. It's principle. Sure, some elements of GTA3 were removed before release but we were still happy with what we got. If we purchase this game again and some missions are missing, some voice acting is removed, any number of of things more noticeable than a confederate flag on a t-shirt, we bought a lesser game and really for no better reason than the feelings of a fraction of earth's population. The more appropriate response to this competitively woke crowd would be to say that fire is hot so don't play with it, it'll burn you and you'll be offended.

-T9X-69-935d ago

Do you know what principle means? You can't say it's the principle and "happy with what we got" in the same sentence. The only confirmed "censorship" is the T-shirt in Vice City. You're over here speculating about removing mission and features, which nothing they've shown even eludes to that. The soundtrack is more understandable due to licenses. But let's wait for it to release instead of making wild accusations with 0% evidence of what your mentioning.

G3ng4r935d ago

"It's principle" was actually the entire sentence. You okay? I stated that we were happy as if to insinuate there's a point where we may not continue to be happy but then I'm not here to help you read my posts. I don't think any concerns of censorship are so unfounded when one considers the case of Umberto Robina. Check the start of the mission "trojan voodoo" in vice city. Examples of censorship like I've mentioned have happened before, I'm merely hoping as much of the trilogy as possible stays intact. My apologies if that hurts.

-T9X-69-935d ago (Edited 935d ago )

Lmfao ironically the one who seems hurt is you. The only thing removed was a few lines of dialog that specifically mentioned Haitians. Do you need to hear "I'm gonna kill me a Haitian" to still have the same experience? Nope. Does it need to read "Kill all the Haitians" to have the same experience? Nope. So who's feelings are really hurt here if your the one worried about such "drastic censorship"? But it's okay right, cuz you'll be happy with what you get 😅

Point proven. Rockstar isn't just now bowing down to censorship. They've always had a small amount of it since the birth of GTA 3, your example in Vice City, plus Hot Coffee in SA. None of these changes structure the missions differently or change the gameplay (outside of Hot Coffee, which was only changed to remove the AO rating to bring it back to shelves).

So you really have no reason to worry or be upset. Unless the potential removal of useless, derogatory terms bothers you. In which case, that's a weird sense of empowerment you seek.

Mr_Writer85935d ago

@G3ng4r

T9 has a point. You're speculating that missions etc could be cut from the game based on what? A t-shirt being changed?

That's more a cosmetic change, which we're getting anyway with the updated graphics.

But I don't know where your getting the idea missions would be changed/cut from, what's led you to believe this?

Amplitude935d ago (Edited 935d ago )

I don't think G3ng4r is saying that he thinks they're going to cut content - just that, if they do, it's a lesser product

Cutting whole levels would be extreme, but with cutting a shirt out, the possibility of certain jokes and lines being cut is worth thinking about.

If* they do cut dialogue, im really surprised a bunch of y'all are just cool with it after they even pulled the original games from digital stores. Defending that is pretty weird ngl

-T9X-69-935d ago (Edited 935d ago )

@Amplitude Personally, I wouldn't say I'm "cool" with it either. I'm indifferent on the matter. As long as it doesn't change the gameplay, flat out remove characters or missions, then it really changes nothing. Do I "need" to see Phil in a confederate flag t-shirt to feel nostalgic? Absolutely not. If he did have it, would I care? Absolutely not. Not hearing a couple extra lines of dialog from Umberto isn't going to change the way I play and enjoy the missions that follow. Truth be told, if half of these "censorship" changes weren't pointed out to people, they wouldn't even notice because they would be too busy enjoying the game.

Which circles back to my original point. Rockstar has always had some form of censorship, from 2001 to 2021 and even before that. And even with those "censorship" changes, it doesn't negate the fact they're considered some of the greatest open world games of all time. No one has ever said San Andreas is a much better open world video game when they had Hot Coffee in it. Which also happen to be their biggest censorship considering "gameplay and features" were completely removed. Huffing over a few lines of dialog or a t-shirt is just childish nitpicking.

The comparison 40 second video Rockstar released was underwhelming.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is Still Not up to Standard Two Years Later

Worse still though, it appears as though The Trilogy has been abandoned by Rockstar and Take Two Interactive.

By today's standards, I'd argue that being half assed, having a couple patches, and being abandoned and ultimately left still half assed is infact up to standards.

VenomUK163d ago (Edited 163d ago )

Yesterday I watched a YouTube video that said the new Netflix iOS/Android versions have a series of visual improvements that significantly improve it and bring it much closer to the vision and mood of the original games.

That's just a f****** insult. They need to release that patch for console/PC asap.
