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.

    60 Gig. Heh. Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and say that I'm never gonna download that...

    I'd ponder getting the disc version, except it says DVD rom, which would mean it'd be on, what, 10 discs? So I think that's more a box where inside all they have is a download code...

    7 Discs according to this

    Thanks for info. I'm a collector of boxed PC games, so I guess I'll get my moneys worth.

    I ordered it from Amazon and they guarantee delivery on 'release day', which is cool. That seems like a recent thing....

    Oh you'll be fine. 780Ti is still a really fast card. The rest of the specs are top notch too so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to max out most settings.
    I mean the 780Ti is faster than the 970 around the same speed as the 980 in certain games.
