There were some good folk at 2k Australia, and now there are no AAA studios left in the country. This really sucks.

Yeah, that sucks. Hopefully the people that lost their jobs can create their own Indie studio and be successful.

They can just about add Battlefield Hardline to the list.

It's like a game that was released two years ago not last month.

Almost everyone's playing GTA V.

I went to rob a grocery store with a cement mixer last night. Didn't go so well.

Dude! I literally laughed out loud on that one. Too funny!
It was pretty hilarious.

I was running around doing stupid shit in the city when I got a phone call that I have to go to this grocery store.
I didn't pay much attention to the details so not sure if there were any. The game was telling me to get a car.
A cement mixer was driving down the road, I went in front of it the driver stops I yank the guy out and I remember he was saying something along the lines of "you gotta be fucking kidding me"
I drove to the store and the game tells me to point the gun at the clerk, he starts to fill the bag with cash but the cops are already on their way.
When he finally finish filling the bag I run out of the door and of course no other cars on the road except my lovely cement mixer. I hop in try to drive away from the cops, I think I ended up jumping out of the moving vehicle and swim across this river, managed to somehow get away but I was laughing my ass off.
Dumb criminals reality tv show stuff.

Now I'm literally crying from laughter, and almost choked eating some bread. Oh man, too funny. Thanks for sharing.

There's a camera mode you can set to high, but it's for 3rd person driving.

First person driving is very claustrophobic, and I don't use it much.
Oh my mistake, thought you said there was a camera option for in-car.

Yeah, it's pretty tight in there. I feel like like the FPS camera in general is a bit low, almost like you're 5 foot 5


People have also claimed that when you drive in first person, the car goes slower, to allow you time to react, but I never tested it.


Yeah, I tried driving in FP mode for a while, but it is hard to judge the perimeter of the vehicles; I was beating the crap out of the them backing into things, and especially side swiping other cars and objects. I switch back and for between 3P and FP in driving, but I think 3P is the way to go until I can acclimate to the FP view.

So much to do in the game, I just don't know what I am supposed to do next. What a newb I am.

Well, Amazon pulled through on their guaranteed delivery on release day, as my retail copy just showed up on my door step. I have to say I got my monies ($59.96) worth as it is a nice bundle: 7 DVD Booklet, Manual, and Los Santos fold-out map.

Loading up now. Hope to see you on the streets of Los Santos soon.

First GTA/RockStar game I've played, so I'm sure I'm in for a big/fun learning curve.

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.

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
