Starting Forest Gump

I wish they put this kind of effort into releasing mission and mod tools for the game.

Grin...I was scratching my head trying to figure out WTF the first sentence of your post was eluding to until I watched the vid.

It's The Final Countdown!

LOL! That song echoed it my head right when I read your post, and didn't even have to click on the link.

Thanks Cutter, now that song is going to be repeating over and over in my mind throughout the day.

Ugh fine. Fine! We all know I'm going to buy this so I might as well get it preloaded.

Goddamnit I'm weak.

(edit: thanks Dacron!)

Don't be so hard on yourself Quboid, as you did restrain yourself until the day before release, which you should feel a tad good about.

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.


  • Thanks for tips, I'll need them being a total newb at GTA; therefore I have no tips to offer in return.

    The PC exclusive video editor looks pretty awesome too

    Yeah, was watching these guys talking about it last night...

    Wow, that looks awesome! Great addition to the game, and smart too, as it will make for perpetual\free marketing for RockStar.

    I may return to PC gaming eventually but for now, I'm enjoying the console scene.

    Well you're definitely not alone, at least. Blue's and a few other previously PC centric sites that I visit have been shifting over to console gaming for a while now.

    Developers that neglect the PC as a platform are starting to get free passes everywhere but PC hardware sites at this point.

    The old timers all seem to be giving up on the PC and going to consoles. But PC gaming is getting a lot of new blood as well. The main place you can find a lot of enthusiasm for the PC is on reddit. Lots of long time console gamers posting pics of their first gaming rigs, etc. So even if the userbase of Blue's and other sites abandon the PC, I think it has a bright future.

    Hey, who are you calling an 'Old Timer'? Wink

    Well, hopefully it will be a little shorter than the four years from announcement to release of HR.

    Yeah, I hope it is not that long. Hopefully it has already been in development for a while. Release for the 2015 Holidays would be nice.

    1. Re: I Quit - What Really Goes on at Apple Apr 10, 2015, 11:03 MajorD
     

    This is typically what happens when a company is a cash cow; time wasted by overinflated management assigning meaningless and demeaning tasks to peons. None of this is surprising.

    ...Sickness, family emergencies, and even weddings are given no respect at Apple. When I started my role I missed one business trip as my wife was pregnant, fell down the stairs and had to be hospitalised – this was listed as a ‘performance issue’ on my record and brought up during a one on one with management as a major ‘miss’ on my behalf.

    Awful! I've 'worked' for a company like that before. Sad situation...

    That is not a very good article. It's pretty old, and the guy apparently is under the belief that putting two cards in SLI/crossfire doubles the memory, which it doesn't.

    Uhoh Thanks. Here is a newer article.

    Nope. I only got 1, still MVP in insurgency quite often even with a glitchy mouse Even played GTA 5 on PS3 with bluesnews crew and did alright although nearly useless in deathmatch with a controller.

    Impressive.

    Sorry SpectralMeat, it doesn't sound like I'll be selling you my 780ti for a $100 bucks now.

    I'll offer 160!

    Having to look which kidney I no longer love the most, as the 560ti has done a remarkable job over the years, but this may be the game that finally does it in.

    So I totally missed this one; has anyone played Penumbra: Necrologue? It is a TC Mod for Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which continues the Penumbra story line, and is a free download on Steam. Also available from moddb if you don't have a Steam copy of Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

    I just happen to come across it searching for a status update on SOMA.
