Just got back from picking this up at the Walmart midnight launch.  I hope it lives up to the hype.

i just came here hoping to get some feedback on it.

i have the 360 version and it is amazing.
so much detail and such a big playing map.
intense story

in one sitting (about 30 minutes) I:
-got drunk
-drove drunk
-got the cops on me
-attempted to walk around drunk

its rowdy, i get my xbox live membership today/tommorow but i heard the multiplayer is worth buying just for that

Short Rundown:

-the city feels like a real city, much more than any other open world game thus far.
-there's a much bigger emphasis on the story, which happens to be pretty good for a videogame
-the aiming and controls are lightyears ahead of the previous gta games
-the driving takes a little getting used to, but i've learned to like it

I've yet to take it online, but thats what has me most excited.  I've played for probably about 5 hours now, and I've still yet to open more than the queens/brooklyn area of the city, so not even half.  So far I really like it, and it seems like its going to keep my interest much longer than the previous games.

...back to playing.

Motorbike yes, I haven't had a time to play that much so idk if theres a bicycle.

Such a fun game so far though. Well beyond my expectations. I find myself stopping at times just to look at the scenery.

Still all the sweet cars and motorcycles, not sure on the bike, but I know they took out the wackier vehicles that were in San Andreas.  Things like the jet pack and the jet fighter.  The only airborne vehicle is a copter.  And like I said everything drives significantly different due to a new physics engine.

I got it this afternoon, but still haven't played it since I'd have to rewire my entertainment system (I haven't been playing my 360 for about 4 months now).  I chose instead to watch some crazy Korean horror movies in between playing the new Taiko drum game on DS.

I was just watching the TV in GTA4 and I saw Ricky Gervais come on and do some stand up.

Fucking nuts.

got the game. it took forever to install, had to update my system first. then it took forever for the intro credits and the only thing i've done so far is getting shot dead in the middle of the street by the cops when i was out on a bowling date. it was actually pretty sick getting gunned down.


they talked about it on the daily show last night: http://play.tm/wire/click/1873362

it's looks pretty out of hand, i'm going to have to try it

i like the idea of winning being based on getting other peoples money = have to walk over the persons body to get money = no point in snipping

I wish I knew anybody with a PS3 to play online with.  Also, the one nag I have for the game is that the controls are a little sucky in online since they're not setup up dualstick fps style.  You can't turn fast at setup to shoot at all, but this really only matters in small deathmatch areas which isnt the point of the game.  Rolling in a car for a driveby with 3 real friends must be so much fun.

Is that thing finally picking up steam? How's the online compared to the 360? I'm holding off on all "serious" console gaming until Fall, so I keep skating.



And if anyone cares, EB Games in Canada will sell you Mario Kart with the wheel thingy for $10 if you bring in one good game. I think it's like Galaxy, Smash Bros, Zelda and something else.

I've had both, and the only thing I miss from the 360 is the online.  PS3's is still pretty jacked with no in-game XMB or real sense of community.  I'm kinda stoked for HOME, but they keep delaying that shit more and more.  I like the PS3 exclusives more and thats why I'm going with that now.  360 kinda already busted its nut last fall, and there schedule for this year aint got shit on playstation.  Between Metal Gear Solid 4, Little Big Planet, Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Socom Confrontation, and whatever else they pull out at E3 I'm pretty stoked.  Hell I'd of bought it JUST for Metal Gear, I love me some Solid Snake.

Edit:  And I'm not sure with the retail products, but as of today Sony finally price matched their online content for Canadians to reflect their strengthining dollar.

I was gonna get a PS3 but none of those games have interested me so far. So I got a wii and a fuckton of games for the same price.

Ninja Gaiden 2, Fable 2 and Banjo Kazooie are the only games I'm gonna waste my money on this year I'm thinking.

Maybe Fallout 3 if Bethesda don't fuck it up.

anyone else come upon the skatepark in gtaIV yet? I'm only about 15% into the story, so I'm not sure if it plays any real effect, but that thing has an awesome mini.

When it comes to Xbox 360 or PS3 you just gotta look at the games. Most of them these days are on both systems. Last year, xbox had more of the heavy hits, but this year it's mostly PS3. PS3 overall is a more powerful system, but I like the online aspects of Xbox a lot better, which is why I got one. For PS3, check out Haze and Metal Gear, those two look really sick.

Eh I still think they're a little busted, the fact that when your turning the camera with the right stick and let go and it snaps back is wack.  They shoulda just copied every other 3rd person shooter out there.  They're still not even as good as Saint's Row's controls.
