yeah, was time about it. I cant wait to buy the disc to play it on my ps3.
was already giving up my hope =/
finally... I was waiting for this a long time
Yawn!!! I hope this series is done, If you recycle crap, you will still come out with crap.
Jeez its about time (well still got 2 months to go really) maybe now i'll finally replay for the trophies they added after i already beat the game argh.
i was pretty pissed off to when they added trophies after i beat it, still an amazing game though story was the best by far!
Soon as this is out on PS3 I'll snap it up
Game play was terrible, especially the physics engine your character can trip over just about anything and fall to the ground, not to mention who's idea was it to implement a mobile phone and have other characters call you to ask if you'd like to do something with them.
The GTA series is far from dead, I just think the implementation of GTA IV was terrible, GTA IV showed promise but didn't deliver graphics, story line, side missions, "Realism" (FAIL), all sucked. The whole point of GTA is to do stuff in a city that you wouldn't / shouldn't do in real life, all of the GTA's up until now have been arcadey and that's what made them fun Rockstar went overboard trying to make IV "Realistic".
