Yes, a2, it's that awesome.

I haven't played very much so far, but I really like how different it is. Switching main characters is a pretty awesome feature, and it's weird to see my hometown portrayed pretty accurately. Like, scary accurate.

It's doing quite good business:
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/grand-the ... 00714.html



I played a bit more tonight, mostly drove around and explored (the map is huge), and did some of the challenges at the shooting range. Shooting is a lot better than IV. It feels like they borrowed some of the mechanics from Red Dead Redemption which is a good thing. Can't wait for the multiplayer release.

It's been a good year for consoles... Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us and now this.

Did you play the first San Andreas? Just wondering how the map accuracy compares.

Woo bare boobies! This must be why the sales clerk at Game Stop asked to see my id even though she could have been my daughter.

The mission with the weed legislation guy in the park was really weird.

This is the review on IMBD:

Quote:
Those who know me, know that I like nothing more than putting a game on and stroking my bell-end whilst I play it. Over the years, games such as Tomb Raider, Dead or Alive and Leisure Suit Larry have given my loins the workout they deserve.

So imagine my excitement when my wife spent our welfare money on this game for my birthday. I kissed her and told her I loved her, then I have her a slap for paying for it, and not allowing me to indulge in a bit of irony by stealing a copy from ASDA. She apologised. I accepted.

From the first moment the game was in my PS3, I was reaching for the tissues. I genuinely feared I was going to ejaculate before the first mission had even finished. I could feel my member starting to rise, like a weeping willow filling with air. As I played on, there were so many weapons and vehicles available, not-to-mention the three main characters, that I kept having to put the controller down so that I could double-stroke. I maintained my composure, though, and held back from an early climax. Tantra and the like.

I got out of my car at one point and followed a man down the street. He was just a normal guy, wearing a baseball cap, going about his business. I stabbed him again and again. Ever after his body went limp, I spent the next three minutes stabbing his inanimate corpse. And this was when I sprayed my shorts.

So, all in all, this game is vast, exciting, fun, entertaining, racist and promotes violence. But I ain't never juiced in my shorts before, and that was off the hook!

My wife can't even get the stains out. She'd better.

That's... quite a review.

Yeah, I think it was a parody of Saints Row, who ripped off GTA in the first place.

Anyways, I just completed my first heist and it was the most fun I've ever had with a video game.

The jewelry store? What did you chose?

Spoiler
I chose to go in sneaky. I picked the most expensive crew members except for gun. I chose the cheap gun guy and he crashed his bike during the escape.

I went with sneaky too: and had Packie on my crew. He kept talking about Niko, which I thought was cool.

I also went sneaky but went for the cheapest crew possible, i lost some cash though when trying to evade the cops. One of the bikers crashed and we lost his money. Did that happen to anyone else?

I went with the most expensive of everything. We cleaned the place out and got away clean but Michael bitched about giving up so much of a cut.

Spoiler
Yeah, my cheap gun man crashed his bike and lost 1/3 of the loot


I stopped at one of those random opportunities. It was a drug store robbery and they needed a getaway driver. One of the robbers was Packie Mcreary.

I can't decide if I love Trevor or hate him.

Him killing Johnny from GTA IV rubbed me the wrong way.

Me, too, but I sort of enjoyed the way he showed off his boot later

I don't remember posting anything about Trevor! I was a little drunk last night so you never know but I think the lad is just miss understood.

Franklin's first mission with Lester is really pissing me off.

Spoiler
90 seconds is not long enough to plan an assassination. I'm trying sticky bomb and sniper techniques and keep getting wasted either trying to escape or not even killing the guy at all.


On the plus side, I discovered if you max out a strippers "like" meter you can get 2-girl dances and you can go home with the stripper. I don't see a stat for vd but I'm pretty sure I caught one, based on the looks of that girl.

do you mean the mission where you assassinate the guy as he leaves the hotel? I just waited in the parking lot across the street until he emerged then gunned him and his guards down with the assault rifle and bailed.

Yeah, the guards lit me up every time I sniped him or I had a hard time figuring out which floor was best to snipe from (couldn't see well from first floor and the ledge on the top floor was too tall to see over. I thought it would be fun to sticky bomb his car as it drove by but that was a colossal failure every time.

Which endings did you guys pick?
Spoiler
I went with the death wish ending, because I liked Michael and Trevor too much to kill them.
