I have a core i5 750 (2.66GHz), a 660OC and 12GB RAM. If I overclock my CPU to 4GHz and am able to run this on max settings then I don't need to build a new system.

I have an old i7 960 (3.2g) this is supposed to run it. I'm a little skeptical, but I'll give it a shot. Going from a 560 to a 960 on the video should help as well.

I am waiting for post launch where bonus is removed.

If you get all that in-game cash upfront you can go straight from BB gun to mini-gun (I imagine) or Beetle to Porsche, where is the fun in that.

Guns only unlock at certain levels/progression. When you walk into the gun store starting out, most of the items are unavailable. And you can steal cars from anywhere...

OK, almost hit the roof over that one before mousing over and seeing where it was from.

ccording to Rockstar, the recommended specifications are based on hardware that can run the game at 1080p, at 60 frames-per-second. For that, Rockstar suggest a Nvidia GTX 660 2GB or AMD HD7870 2GB.

Fucking awesome. Don't care about 4K right now.

Driving and shooting was easy with a M&K in GTA4, why would it be any more difficult in 5?

One of the cool things they added/changed going from last gen to current gen consoles (and I'd be shocked if the pc didn't have it as well) is, instead of a single button press to aim/shoot (IE the gun begins firing the moment the button is pressed, even if you're not on target yet), now you can have one button press to aim, and then another to shoot. Or, you can also change it back to the traditional method it was before.

There's lot of cool options like that, also how you can specify what you want the default camera to be in car, or on foot. They seem to have embraced the idea that people play the game differently, and try to support as many options as they can.

The aim and shoot in GRA IV PC are different buttons, did they change it to one button for GTA V in the old gen consoles?

I was referring to the car portion that HElf mentioned. Could have sworn in was a single button in 4 as well? Granted, I used a gamepad. But in 5 on the ps3/360, it was a single button, in car. But now it's an optional two.

I don't own the original game and considering getting this bundle from Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/62587/
Pretty sweet price for the 2

I paid full price for the main game last year, and had zero regrets. Finished my replay earlier this year and still didn't find all the secrets (dammit).

I suspect it's a lot of folks trying out the system. It'll normalize, eventually.

There was a screenshot a few months ago of that double helix'ish light structure reported here on Blue's. Pretty sure that was them showing off that it was their in-house engine.

Looks fantastic. I need to go play through HR again before this hits. Haven't played the Director's Cut version yet. Didn't they add some ways to avoid the boss fights?

Yeah, they've basically redesigned the maps to include a method to include a hacking system to have security features do the work for you. The second boss is still annoying though. Also, the Director's Cut has problems of its own in regards to crashing and such. I ran in to BSODs with the DC version until I turned VSync on but there are others in the Steam forums who have other problems which seem to be untouched.

Never understood why they didn't patch the DC. I stick with the originals, even with having to jump back and forth to Missing Link.

Not for me. Look at the second screen shot I posted, it's in the Important section.

OK, I can't explain that shit at all. Same size, same date.

What do your update settings look like?

Screenshots look good. The only complaint I had about the original is that you could max out the skill tree (get all of the desirable talents) before completing the game, I hate when games do that.

Better that than have you max out your skills, customize your favourite weapons, gather all your favourite potions and gewgaws, only to walk into a cut scene and find yourself without anything, facing a boss fight. (*I'm looking at you Dying Light, you sniveling wretch*).

*cough*JaronNamirfight*cough*... I mean, if you didn't think anything funny going on at the LIMB clinic

Interesting that console is day and date with the pc this time. Think it's the first time that's happened, as usually there's a delay.

This did come up for me as an 'Optional' update, which I have forgone FTB.

It showed up as a recommended update for me. I have Windows update set to only notify me of updates. I remember getting the updates that Saturday. First it was just one update that required a restart. Then after restarting, two more showed up, but didn't require a restart.

After uninstalling it, a little while later I got a notice of an important update. The description is a lie too. It says "Install this update to resolve issues in Windows."

It's odd that the update was installed Saturday, but this morning was the first time the GWXConfigManager.exe set off the firewall.

It's Recommended, but it's under the Optional banner.
