In any case, this shouldn't be a problem any more with the upcoming console generation. Several GB of available RAM makes a HUGE difference to this kind of thing. Streaming becomes less of a strain since the memory itself can deal with most of the time-critical things.

make every want to double dip, eh?

I think the only benefit mentioned is less noise.

The metacritic for this game is impressive... I'm torn between playing the game now or holding out for the PC version. I feel like I won't care about the game by the time it reaches PC, though.

just to balance things a little bit
The Escapist
Spoiler for Hiden:
3.5/5

"excellently crafted open world is marred by a script that presents despicable characters as the protagonists."

Give me a fucking break.  It's GTA.

Yeah. Loathe as I am to say "he doesn't get it" about a reviewer, he just doesn't get it.
I think that is a valid criticism.  In my mind there is a difference between being a criminal and being a horrible human being.  It’s fun to be the bad guy but I want to be the bad guy with a moral code that I can still respect.  I have the same problem with the Payday series.  It can be fun but I hate the characters and takes away my enjoyment from the games.

That is fair in most cases, but not when it comes to GTA. You always play a selfish, criminal prick in these games. The closest we got to morals was Nico, and he's a homicidal maniac who would get counted as a terrorist by even the most forgiving of nations. Anyone who, after 4 main games and a multitude of great spinoffs, doesn't understand that these games aren't about playing someone who gives you warm, fuzzy feelings, isn't qualified to review these games since he clearly hasn't done his research. It's like picking up a puzzle game and listing "it's a puzzle game" under cons.


I agree. I think that anybody by now should be able to figure out that those kind of characters come with the territory. Anybody expecting anything less has clearly not been paying attention all these years. Perhaps if that's what they want, they should go play Nintendo games.

Apparently all the old comments made today on The Escapist GTAV review page have been deleted,it seems by new comments made the old comments weren't really that offensive or anything,just people complaining and basically saying "it's a GTA game,what do you expect?" (i am sure one or two probably went bonkers at them like you usually get)


example from the new comments:

Most of the comments I read were arguing his points and did not insult him as a person at all. I'm not saying everyone had an intelligent comment but it was far from warranting a mass wipe.

So is it wrong for there to be a review written for people who are NOT already fans of the series?  I’ve never been able to get into a GTA title but every time a new one comes out I wonder if they have made changes to the formula that will make me change my mind.  A review is an opinion, nothing more.  The reviewers’ opinion is that the characters are despicable and that, for him, it takes away from the experience.  I would agree.  His review has informed me that I probably would not enjoy the game and so it was helpful.

Definitely not. I'm just saying that if one is making a review, one should know what to expect from this kind of game. There have been many GTA games now, so why is it so much a surprise that the characters aren't likeable? The author sounds surprised when he really shouldn't be. I could understand it if it was a first game in a series, but there have been lots of controversy surrounding the games over the years that it's something that's become part of the package.

in other words the game will show up bright and early for a change, totally screwing my plans up biggrin

I think I have a 16 gig USB flash drive somewhere around here.  an 8 gig probably wouldn't work (I think it is 7.8 gig for the second disc plus half a gig for 360 formatting stuff).

Crap, the largest I have at home is an 8GB. I have an old X360 and the DVD drive sounds like a 747 spinning up.

Please, find me a better solution...  Roll Eyes

I think I have a 16 gig USB flash drive somewhere around here.  an 8 gig probably wouldn't work (I think it is 7.8 gig for the second disc plus half a gig for 360 formatting stuff).

Crap, the largest I have at home is an 8GB. I have an old X360 and the DVD drive sounds like a 747 spinning up.

Please, find me a better solution...  Roll Eyes

I got one of these on the way. turns out the biggest I have that I can find is a 2 gig, so it will come in handy long past my time with GTA 5.

So if you're a casual gamer who doesn't follow release dates and stumble upon a game you'd like but which hasn't been released yet, which you're not aware of, Microsoft will ban you. That's just great. Punish the consumers who haven't actually broken any rules instead of punishing the retail chain that did.

alternatively, if you pirate the game to play it early MS will ban you.  sounds like they're using the nuclear option on the pirates and the honest consumers don't have refrigerators to hide in.  in any case, if you get to play the game before I do you deserve to be banned.


unless you are our Glorious Leader of course.  ALL HAIL KNIGHTSHADE!

LOL!   Nice.    Yea, I had to sign an NDA and submit my gamertag to make sure I didn't get banned for being online with the game early.  That's pretty common actually with Microsoft, so don't think this is a new policy.

Sod doing that again,there must have been 1000 people there and i was right at the back

Got served about 2am,when i did get there the guy asked me what version i had pre-ordered,i answered "I dunno,I've forgotten what i was queuing up for in the first place"....his dead pan face and 'I ain't got time for this shit' look,made me answer "standard" icon_neutral

The manual is a disappointing 4 page bullshitorama of controls and warranties(sp?),but thankfully they still do the fold out maps,and it looks nice but its double sided with one half of the map on one side and the other half on the other side,so not exactly a good map to replace the skyrim one next to where i play.

I got my Blimp as well,yay
It says 'Fly or Parachute to the top of the blimp to gain access to the cockpit' saywhat..really,i can't just take off from somewhere in it??

But anyway,I think i'll just go to bed,i am knackered and i have to go out tomorrow morning,but should be back by midday,then its GTA time
and yeah Midnight Openings for video games get a Danny Glover picture from me
