With the red dot on the M60, it's hard to put 2-3 rounds on the exact same small target at max range.  Your first round will probably hit since you have the red dot for aim, but then it drifts up.

With the grip on the RPD, the first 3 rounds pretty much hit within the same tiny target even at max range on the largest maps.  Since the RPD does 40 damage per round, even without a head shot it's a kill at max range with 3 out of your available 100 rounds in the mag.

Keep in mind that apparently I'm tougher on games than the average person.  Little things tend to bother me a lot and sometimes what I see as a big thing is minor or overlooked by others.

brought my 360 to work but FORGOT A CONTROLLER.  ARGGGHH!!!!!!!!! 

ill be back...

Where the frack do you work?? I want a job there!

Thanks to Caine for making a new impressions thread, the other was a major turnoff to read.

I'm disheartened by all the letdown - but I guess it's fairly typical for any game that receives this much hype and buildup. I've now fallen into the group of 'wait 'n see' people, to decide if I want to get this now, or buy a different game instead.

If you enjoy multiplayer at all I'd suggest getting it because there will be plenty of us playing for quite awhile.

If you enjoyed the other GTA's, I suggest getting it because it's more of the same only better.

If you didn't like the previous ones, not sure if you like it, or sorta liked it but won't do mp, I'd suggest passing until it's cheaper.

I have a fairly in-depth how-to on driving typed up at work that I hit submit before I left but I guess it didn't go through due to new posts while I was typing.  

Anyway, the driving, while very different to the other GTA's is still very much an arcade racer with the major difference of having to maintain speed and not brake during turns.  Brake, stop braking, then turn and you'll be fine.  You have to prepare for your turns and you can't just twitch the controller left and right and whiz around corners.

BTW, other than the announcement of the 100% club (where you have 1 week to get 100% in the game, and I don't know if that's 100% achievements, 100% completion in-game or both) is there anything available on the Social Club yet?

I know I won't be in the 100% club, I don't have 100% on any games yet.

Ruh roh!  Is there no option to turn off the graphics filter like there was in Vice City?

I looked and didn't see it.  Hopefully I was just too tired, but I don't think it's there.  The filter is extreme and I do not like it at all.

Weirdest part to me is that when on foot the controls are too twitchy AND too sluggish at the same time.  Hard to explain and even harder for me to grasp how you can make something that suffers on both ends of the spectrum.

I think I was spoiled by the responsiveness of Saint's Row while on foot.

Not impressed so far.

Graphics are butt ugly, the fuzzy filter on almost everything ruins it for me.  That 'oil painting' look from some of the screenshots is ever-present and detracts from nearly every moment.  Depth of field as mentioned by someone else is completely fubar and things are so blurry past 10 ft that it's like I'm near-sighted and misplaced my glasses.  (I know because I'm near-sighted and wearing my glasses slywink )

Controls are a bit touchy, especially when trying to knife a foe up close.  Cover system, while a neat idea is pretty lame over all.  I hit cover and my dude won't turn the way I need to, half the time he won't fire over cover when I hit the button, etc.

Helicopters are awesome fun, except it seems more effective to run people through with the rotors than to use the gun.

Game still has potential, especially for multi, but I think it's going to take some time to learn.

I know a lot of people were complaining about the driving last night, but I thought it was one of the high points and had no problems with it at all.

Boobs without nipples are just plain creepy and detracts from realism.  I'd rather not have boobs if they are not allowed to show nipples for some reason.

YK, ever tried just taking the clothes off yourself rather than glimpsing a peek during character load?  Tongue  Still can't take off the thong though.  Decapitations are a-ok but full frontal is a sin.  Also during character loading you get the scary moment when only the dentures and eyeballs are showing.

I'm still constantly amazed at how full gore is fine for most on the continent, but moderate sex/nudity isn't.

That's one heck of an experience penalty. Unless he kept his levels all really close to one another.

I continue to struggle.  But using some or your tips, I finally managed to have a match where I got more kills than deaths.  Barely (7 kills, 2 assists, 6 deaths).  I was using the AK47 with the red-dot scope.

Any tips for the Creek map?  I can only scrape out a kill or two on that map (with double-digit deaths every time  retard). 

Anyway, I'm having fun.  And I appreciate the insights.   

At the start of the map, run to the cave and kill them.  Then stay in the cave killing them.  If they are in the cave, don't go there.   If they are not in the cave, go there and kill them when they try to go in the cave.  Once you've mastered the cave, think about killing people outside of the cave. smile

Wanderers are usually on a RP PvP server right? Least thats the way I recall WoW and possibly EQ2..been a while. I loved that RPPvP WoW server. Its the only place I max capped a character. Lots of fun battles and got my own fair share of ganked done to me. Loved it all the time.

Hmmm you may have got us mixed up with someone else.  We generally play on a standard server (largest remaining contingent continues on a standard WoW server), though have been known to splinter off onto other server types.  I don't think a group of us has ever done RP PvP.  The guild was formed in DAOC during the Gone Gold days (close to 7 years ago I think) so for some years was kind of known as the unofficial official GG guild.




We have always had a splinter group that do PvP servers, but it's generally been under 5-10 people depending on the game.

Anyway.. carry on smile



Yeah there was a desire by some to do that - but if I remember our original argument the issue was if the government itself attempted to initiate war which I don't think is reasonable to assume.

They just needed to get the Japanese into the Peach Orchard

What is puzzling is that I called up to check if it was too late to do it, and the ebgames guy sounded like he worked for Microsoft.   He told me that the PS3 version frame rates are far worse than the 360 version.     It's almost like ebgames pushes 360 over PS3 nowadays because this isn't the first time I've run into this.     Wierd.

Yet another thing that shows how different opinions can be.  I find the M16 one of the top 5-6 iron sights.

My worst 3 are:

M14 hands down
M60
G36

Best:

AK47/ak74
RPD
MP5
G3
M16/M4


Even though the M16 has an enclosed iron sights, it's not nearly as obstrusive as the G36


On a completely unrelated rant, I was taking the written test for my motorcycle permit today and am very irritated with the test creators.  Half the questions are completely ambiguous and it's really hard to see what they are asking.  I doubt I could pass with the manual in front of me since the lady administering the test couldn't find the correct answers afterwards when I asked her what they were. 

Many times there were 2 or 3 of the 4 answers that were in the manual, ALL were correct but apparently there is one magical answer that I'm supposed to know the dipshit that put the questions in thought was the right one.  Thankfully taking it is free and can be done daily, but they will be sick of seeing me soon.  First time I've ever failed a written test in my life and really pissed me off.

Well, I agree actually, RP servers have less idiots, although that makes them more obvious, but, I've always thouroughly enjoyed RP servers, since people seem to genuinly care about the world, the guild and the people in it... the PVP option is just to make the world more deadly and interesting to be in - although., depends entirely on the system I guess..

but, I'm definitely going to try out an RP-PVP server...will probably be making a guild called "Gank Harkonis" as well ;-)

I checked and that name was already taken.
