News Comments > Grand Theft Auto V Steam Details
3. Re: Grand Theft Auto V Steam Details Jun 12, 2014, 10:03 nin
 
(edit: Just off the top of my head:)

I thought it was a fantastic game (I originally considered 4 to be the best of the series, and now consider 5 to be better than 4), but you could tell they were doing every trick in the book to get it running reasonably on 512 meg of ram.

  • Traffic on the highways was light. This was actually beneficial to get away from the cops.


  • Sometimes, if I really really got to going fast down a city street, the game would pause for a second or so as it struggled to load stuff around me.


  • Pop in was evident, especially on a certain mission where you had to fly a plane low to the ground near the lake, and this one giant tree would pop in half a second in front of you, causing the plane to blow up (holy shit that one was frustrating).


  • Flying in the city would also produce pop in/changing of textures, as you got closer. Most of the time you didn't notice this, as it was on the edges of the screen while you concentrated on the plane/chopper in the center.


  • The frame rate, while not horrible (*my opinion), was low, I'm guessing in the 20s.


  • All Most of these issues (maybe not the second to last one) can be fixed with a better video card and 16 times the memory.

    That, and after spending 111+ hours the first time through (granted, chasing achievements/surprises/100% completion), I'm dying for a replay, and can't wait to see how it'll look.

    Sadly registration ended last night at 11:59

    Ouch, sorry. I actually reregistered, as I've still not gotten a code yet (perhaps they've not gone out).

    If they're migrating some games to steam, while leaving others (say DR2: OTR that I own) with GFMFWL, I'm not sure why I should give them more money.

    Even I'm having problems defending this, at this point...

    I'd be curious to their comment last year or so, where they talked about how they wanted everyone to have their own storefront. Are they just going to let everything in? It's not like it's not crowded already, and this stuff isn't helping.

    Only way this could have been better was him sticking his hand in there as well.

    Wow, I didn't realize that spat would be in violation.

    Nor did I. I was fairly restrained (perhaps in more ways than one, now ).

    PoE's Beta is included at $110 tiers and up. Originally Divinity: Original Sin's Alpha access was going to be limited to the $135+ tiers, and they too sell early access on Steam. So what is your point?

    What do you mean? He's not being positive?

    Cracks me up when they finally get a console running at 1080p they have to brag about it, when most of us have been running at that resolution for years.

    The new consoles are already dated, Hook a PC up that has a decent graphics card and attach it to one of the new 4k TV's and you will instantly see why.

    Wow! No one here has ever said that before - even Blue, in the post above! How do you come up with this stuff?????

    Remember to join the CREW!

    http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/bluesnews

    JOINING!!!!!

    Or you could find a crew to actually play with

    I've not seen a single BN crew member in GTA online in 5 months.

    To be honest, that's kind of how it goes with every Blues guild/crew in every game.

    I'll play online again once it hits the PC, I just got bored with the ever-increasing hax and bullshit I had to deal with when playing online, to the point where I finally only just played in a private session. At which point I was basically playing SP without the story, so what's the point?

    Yeah, I played crew only and never saw anyone...

    Even though the video notes it at the end (all footage being from the PS4), I'm still a little skeptical of the shots. But then again, I was skeptical of the original trailers, too, and they were accurate.

    Amazing what those guys do...

    They've been talking about a new Star Trek series for years, so I'm not holding my breath, but it would be pretty cool if this did happen.

    Would be awesome. Of course, that would mean CBS would have to stop being assholes about it...


    Netflix doing it would also have the added benefit of the whole season being available on day one for binge watching!! Must. Not. Hold. Breath! Arghhhh

    People would watch it all in 12 hours and then spoil the fuck out of it, too!

    "OMG, the end of episode 8 was totally unbelievable, and ruins THE ENTIRE SERIES FOR ME!!!!!!"

    Kind of reminds me of before and after diet photographs. Im not claiming they are fake or anything, but they could have at least used the same camera angle and vantage point for fucks sake...

    The before and afters are pretty obvious, you don't need the same angle to see there is no foliage in one and a lot of it in another for example. It's not meant to be scientific anyway, its just showing people that there is a difference.

    Yeah I get that. Its still jarring though. If I was the boss at Rockstar someone would be getting the axe. (Or at least a harsh warning )

    The fact that they could get the game running at all on 512 of ram (for the 360 and ps3) means someone should be getting a raise!

    Obviously enough people complained, if they are taking the time/resources to fix it.

    I'd be surprised if anything new pops up now...

    Overall, not a bad year, but not a great one, either.
