Hells yeah, more wacky San Andreas stuff please!

#3 Posted by The_LMFAO_Guy (192 posts) -

A black guy as the main character? Then who was that old white guy in the trailer? Could the whole multiple protagonist rumor be true? 
 
Also, I want Big Foot in the game.

That sounds really good. Hopefully it's true.

I actually wouldn't want GTA to delve back into its sillier, broader roots. Sure I was pretty peeved to learn a lot of the zany fun was removed for the GTAIV installment, but then I played Saints Row 2, and that made me appreciate GTA more for its grounded aesthetics and gameplay mechanics and served as a brilliant contrast. And with Saints Row The Third greatly building upon SR2's mountain of feces and dildos, I want the GTA series to also retain and improve upon their self-seriousness. I still want to have more variety in GTAV over GTAIV, but the kind of variety that is still relatively realistic; not flying around on a jet-pack for example, setting the world on fire with a flamethrower.

Tommy Vercetti

@Abyssfull: Couldn't agree more. The wacky stuff would just feel completely out of place with the tone of the games now, and it'll never come close to offering the crazyness of Saints Row now. Keep GTA serious, please.

@Abyssfull: I hope they'll find a good balance between the San Andreas and GTA IV.

Multiple protag could be fucking awesome.  Get to see both sides of the story, The Wire styley.

Really hoping this is true. I always got the feeling GTA IV was more of a test of what they could do on the new consoles. Hopefully this one will try some more interesting ideas.

That all sounds like a bit too much to be even remotely possible. I call bullshit.

Wasn't that in the 4chan post?

While I agree, there is only room for so much seriousness - I ain't playing games for the work and GTA IV felt a lot like working without any breakes to do more playfull things.

Really doubting the black protagonist call here. The guy in the trailer was white, sounded white, and from the way he talked, he was old and had a family. Maybe two playable characters? But that would go against all the elements of an open world game.

#15 Posted by Simplexity (1382 posts) -

I hope CJ is the protagonist.

If the cops will use dogs against you, then that must mean that you can kill the dogs, right?

Here's a copypasta 
 

A poster from GTA Forums is claiming that to be a journalist for PSM UK and has had the chance to view 30 minute footage of Grand Theft Auto V at the developer’s Scotland office.

**Take this information strictly as GTA V rumors.**

1: The game world is absolutely massive and will push both xbox and PS3 to the very limit in terms of what it has accomplished. Yes, the main city is simply Los Santos however is it AT LEAST 4 times bigger than Liberty City in GTA 4 and that is just Los Santos. The surrounding country side, beaches, etc are massive. For instance, we saw the main character ( an African/American, early 30′s) travel by car from the center of Los Santos into the wildnerness and it took over 15 minutes. The views were incredible from farmhouses with cattle, huge wind farms, an oil refinery which appeared to be living and breathing with nearly 100 NPCs working on machinery, operating vehicles, lifting and loaded, etc, unlike the gas works in GTA 4 which seemed to only house a few NPC at a time. The forests are more beautiful than those in RDR and featured people camping, young NPC drinking and dancing around campfires, people riding dirt bikes and jumping over logs, streams, etc. The water effects, forna, plants, trees all looked beautiful.

2: The shooting mechanics have been greatly improved with animations for diving, climbing, rolling and crawling all added for better realism. The re-loading animations for new ammo also look cooler, less static.

3: There is much more climbable elements in the world such as ladders, overhand climbing, etc.

4: There are animals in the game from dogs to cattle but at this time it is not confirmed if you will be able to harm the animals. Rockstar were able to get away with it in RDR as it was a true depiction of the world in which the game was set. Allowing dogs/cattle to die in a game sent in current times may cause headaches with PETA. Its unclear if Rockstar were joking here.

5: There are planes to pilot and they can be crashed into buildings if you choose to do so….

6: Rockstar have included many, many more interior locations such as a shopping mall, college campus, police station, a huge hospital and there is also a vast underground sewer network which one mission later in the game involves a jet ski chase that culminates in a Fugitive-esque waterfall jump ( there are nods to the ridiculous but awesome Ballad Of Gay Tony missions)

7: The city is full of NPCs jogging, weight-lifting, hitting on women, being chased on foot by cops, shopping, washing cars, fixing fences, moving home, filling up their cars, etc.

REAL JUICY INFO:

1: Cars can be upgraded/repaired and it has been considered to have a car have fuel forcing the player to fill her up.

2: The dating aspect of the game is gone. You still have a cell-phone but only people you will meet in the game will call you to ask you to do a mission or to ask you to do something else before the mission.

3: Weapons include the usual arsenal you’d aspect but the flamethrowers, remote mines, laxer trip mines and claymores are included. It is possible now to pick up random objects in a street/buidling to use as a weapon. There is also a museam where it is possible to steal old age swords, axes, etc.

4: it is possible to rupture a fuel line and if you shot at the trail of gasoline it will lead straight back to the car blowing it up.

5: mini games such as bowling, darts, etc have all gone. You can play basketball, weight train, arm wrestle, gamble and cage fight, enter triatholons, water races, cannoing, ab-saling, rock climbing, base jumping, ski diving. More to be confirmed.

6: Character customisation is back but only in terms of clothing, body weight, etc. The player you start off which, much like CJ, can’t be altered by race, age, height, etc.

7: Rockstar said burglary missions may return but only as part of missions and not on neigbourhood houses.

8: No children NPC at all. Ever.

9: There is now an ability to grab people and use as sheilds or in “hostage” situations.

10: The cops are much, much, much more realistic. If you kill somebody when you know there are no cops around you will not run the risk of a one star as often as you would in GTA4. The cops will use smoke and tear gas, dogs, riot gear and rams to knock down the doors of buildings you are hiding in.

11: You can enter some buildings and lock doors, push objects in the way to barricade.

12: You become better at things as the game progresses. If you only ride motorbikes then you will increase your skills, same as individual weapons.

13: Certain weapons can be customisable and some even home-made.

14: One mission involves breaking out a very familiar GTA icon from a previous game…

15: Torrential rain fall and sunshine and even tremors will appear in the game.

Fuck, I hope this is true, because it has raised my expectations a lot! It sounds incredible, but also plausible.

Maybe the guy in the trailer isn't the protagonist

I love how none of the features listed are "you can knock trees over with your car".

Sounds like they're aping Saints Row.

...Wow. Now there's a switch.

You can't mess with tradition! Trees are Gods!

But seriously, a "poster" that claims to be a reporter for PlayStation Magazine post it without anything to back-up on forum that isn't even related to PSM? Sounds like those kids that dress-up like Batman, Spider-Man and what not saying "I'm Super-Man Look at me", or in another word - FISHY!

Tommy Vercetti

Give me some proof to where it confirms that it's Tommy Vercetti, because I have my doubts due to the fact that Ray Liotta doesn't reprise the role.

....Are you saying that I should capture PSM, beat the shit out of it, and then demand the real Batman?

#26 Posted by Hameyadea (347 posts) -

@Video_Game_King: No, what I'm saying is that even Batman can't knock down GTA's trees.
