Bit of a twist /spoiler on the Terminator one, BTW. Didn't watch it until after I sent it in.

Ant Man looks awesome, way better than I would have guessed.

Soo..

I've never played any of these games, believe it or not.

Is the gist of it that it's a driving sim in a sandbox world where your goal is to steal cars and shoot other thugs?

It's basically a sandbox where you commit various crimes. In this case, the story of 3 criminals who's paths join (or rejoin) ultimately leading to some "Heat" style robberies and heists. Originally played in the 3rd person, this is the first GTA game to offer first person as well, both on foot and in vehicle (which you can switch back and forth at any time).

Being a R* game, there's also a lot of social commentary (peoples want of money, status, attention, etc), in a very satirical nature.

HBO To Netflix: Bring It On.

I find myself more often than not watching the shows that Netflix produces over the ones they acquire. They're that good. Next on the to-watch list: Daredevil and Bloodline.

Shows made for cable are often just annoying: it's obvious that they're made with specific commercial breakpoints, and they're often made for the lowest common denominator and lack a lot of intellectually or emotionally stimulating content. The original Netflix shows are just usually better in that regard.

I've heard Marco Polo is good as well, but I've not seen it yet.

I fucking loved them, back in the day. Glide was so fucking awesome, and made Unreal and the first UT look slick as hell.
I bought a SECOND Voodoo2, just to play Unreal in whooping 1024x768!!!

I was on a voodoo rush (the combo 2d/3d board) and while Unreal ran, it wasn't great. So I immediately ran out and bought a voodoo2. That was such a great time...

I thought they'd patched that one out?

Unless it was the last couple of patches, it was there on both the ps3 and ps4, as of a month ago? It is SP, be surprised if it's there in multi.

I'm so excited. The launch will probably be a mess but I'm prepared for it.

You're going to have such a blast. The first night I played on the ps3, I ignored the story and just drove around the huge loop of the highway, counter clockwise. This is the first GTA I can recall where the map is totally open from the get go, with no gates or restrictions.

In the words of the failed X-Wing Pilot
"Almost.. there...."

So (knowing this day was coming for awhile) I've compiled a few GTA tips/features to look out for. Hopefully others will chime in as well.

  • There's a camera setting for the car, which can be set to high. It provides a lot move visibility, and you're not having to constantly tilt one of the sticks to see, like in GTA4.


  • Don't miss Chakra Attack on the talk radio station (about 3:00 on the dial). It's a fucking riot.


  • Your camera/first person view can be set by default, and it can be different between out of the car and in the car. So if you want first person while on foot, and 3rd person in car, you can set it up as such. Of course, you can still cycle cameras at any time. (For me, personally, I hated the lack of visibility in car. It was a lot harder to judge where you could fit through. But it's still cool it's an option.) Also, each model of vehicle has it's own unique dash/interior.


  • Don't miss the electric cars in game, especially the Voltic. It hauls ass while being almost totally quiet.


  • Don't miss the Epsilon missions, when they popup. They're a wonderful rip on Scientology.


  • Don't forget to take a motorcycle or even a bicycle out in first person. It's amazing, and the motorcycles provide an insane point of view and you zig zag through traffic at high speed.

    Wow, that sucks. I would have signed up for $15/mo HBO GO if it wasn't Apple exclusive. I don't own anything with an i prefix and never plan to.

    I would love to sign up also, but (even though I use their store a little) I didn't want to be chained to Apple. I'd much rather just sign up with HBO directly in 3 months, if that's an option.

    If anyone's using it currently, I'd love to hear your experience. Hows the catalog?
