It was nice hearing Phil Collins back in a GTA game, but overall I think the music and radio stations were a bit flat compared to previous games, especially 4.

Working 1 holiday season at Gamestop showed me that roughly 1 in 10 parents actually gave a damn about the ESRB Rating, the rest didn't give a damn as long as it shut up the child they were with.

Then again, Steam originally was designed to be a high speed internet pipeline that couldn't get enough backing and became the piece of software we know now.

That being said, with as much gaming as I do on my PC, until everything in my library (or at least AAA titles) run on Linux, I have no interest in it (and granted I've not used it as well).

hahahha Some funny stuff in this video on YouTube - Mythbusters GTA style....

Defend the House has done quite a few Myth gaming video's over the years

And while I could have that vehicle, I follow Trevor's lead and destroy anything related to The Lost, including going back to their trailer park over and over to eradicate them.
Now to steal the C130...

Also finding there is no efficient way to make money after the story ends, except for the stock market and it takes ALOT of manipulation.

I don't see how anyone is buying the golf club without using the money exploits.

Both Beamer.

I have to agree Rigs, that all the commercials for GTA5 have it running silky smooth...

And after clicking on the link it does appear GTA Online will have RL money options. Sad...

The thing is the New Vegas DLC has a overarching story that ends with the last DLC (which I have not played).

I can get to the vehicles nin, I can get in them and take off, but the problem is most of them have take some sort of damage that I can't get them to the airfield to store them, or 400 cops all over the airfield.

Well, if you buy a Shark Card (as mentioned in the radio ad), your money is secure (in the same way you will be able to buy car insurance in game). This way if your killed, your not dropping all the money you have on you (which was mentioned by a dev and several media outlets playing the Online version of the game).

You won't be able to pull off a wheelie with the Green bike that Frank gets. But other bikes is just like the previous games, just pull back on the left stick. If you are doing them to get driving skill up, then don't worry about it as you'll get all 3 characters to max driving and stamina before the end of the game.

Creston there are 69 story missions, if you check your stats (you'll see what's left). As for FIB missions, there are quite a few so need to be a bit more specific.

As for the game, only major issue I had was with the story of Frank and Mike. I would have let Lamar hang himself, and beaten the shit out of Mike's family. Trevor was the only one who actually didn't let himself get walked all over, and has a soft side with telling stories to Wade.

Stealth is VERY useful, but takes awhile to build up, and wish I would have spent more time getting the skill up in the story, especially for Frank and Trevor.

Also some Freaks and Strangers only show up at certain times of the day (day or night), and some I didn't even know about (Mike's Cult) until googling.

Also make sure you stop for strangers as you'll meet someone from GTA4 , who will join your crew. And you can get some nice cars as well.

Honestly the cops are freaking CAKE, especially if your downtown near parking garages. It's all about line of sight. Get up to 4-5 stars and that's where the fun is.

Example: 4 Star, at this point ya probably have 1-3 heli's in on the chase as well. Get to a parking garage or offroad to seperate the heli's. Hop out and take down the gunmen or pilot with a assault rifle fairly easy.

Remember it's all about line of sight.

But I was pissed I spent a assload of money to mod Trevor's truck and poof it all disappeared.

Story Complete, now working on 100%

Why does every job have to have a split of women to men that reflects the population? Should we fire women in female dominated fields to make room for men? The concept of the best person for the job is antiquated thinking it seems.

Hey if you want the pink Mary Kay vehicle that's all on you buddy!

Again with my last upgrade my 560ti 1GB handles anything you can throw at it. With exception of Star Citizen, is there anything else coming out in the next 3 years that might even require SLI?

ARMA 3.

The entire ARMA series wouldn't run better if ya threw a dozen Cray super computers at it.

(Half Elf quote fail)

No, but unnecessary. I would play that same game again uprezzed with better textures. Technology wise that engine has everything it needs.

Well I think it's an upgraded version of the RDR engine, but damn it's a sexy engine.
Texture wise, go to Basket's and you can practically read all the posters, and if ya go to McKinley field, just inside the doors you can read the paper headlines with the mentions of Lost and the Damn leader. It wouldn't really need that much of a bump texture wise, but how much more horsepower would ya need to pull it off?

Nice. What graphics card is with that?

I went with 16GB on my recent upgrade but I'm not sure there's much benefit over 8GB. I have a Geforce 660 2GB, tempted to go SLI - probably better bang:buck than a single 780 or suchlike.

Again with my last upgrade my 560ti 1GB handles anything you can throw at it. With exception of Star Citizen, is there anything else coming out in the next 3 years that might even require SLI?

Even though i don't have it, I know my original Xbox is still running.

Then again it's been properly taken care of, cleaned, dusted, and vented.
