Ok, so I just played GTA IV for about half an hour and then went back to GTA V. Wow, 5 looks and runs a lot better compared to 4. I haven't played an open world game on console in so long that I guess I just was expecting too much.

I really want an Undead Nightmare esque DLC. Not just something weird but something with a Halloween or horror theme. Though that probably won't happen.

I can see where you're coming from, but I think the way they off'd Johnny was great. I really like when major characters just die a sudden uncalled for death.

Playing off the disc helped a little and maybe I am just looking for frame rate drops. Either way I just wish it ran better.

@bigjeffrey: I installed the install disc to the hard drive and the play disc to a USB stick.

While roaming the open world and especially while driving I'm experiencing frame rate drops. Nothing unplayable but, it is annoyingly noticeable. Like when I turn the camera 360 degrees around my character the background doesn't move fluidly. I've tried messing with my tv's settings and cleaning some dust out of the Xbox but I've had no luck yet. Anyone else experiencing this? Also, my Xbox is hooked up with the HD component cables, would getting an Hdmi adapter help?

On my PC the issue was conflicting drivers. Beyond installing additional drivers what I ended up having to do was disable another driver that automatically loads up when you connect your controller.

First I installed the official Xbox 360 Controller Drivers via http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/d/xbox-360-controller-for-windows. After I got it installed (maybe with a reset, too, I forget since this is something I did way back in the day for another game that had similar problems) I went to the Windows' Device Manager and saw that there were two separate entries for HID Compliant Devices (Microsoft Common Controller should be its own category so that's the one thing in the device manager you don't touch). I basically disabled one and since haven't had issues at all with my controller.

So if installing the drivers themselves doesn't work you might have to play around with the Device Manager like I did. You can't really mess anything up since you can reenable anything you disable; just be careful to not uninstall drivers or something.

This worked! Thanks duder!

The controller works fine in any other game but in Saints Row 4 it's like it doesn't even recognize it. I've tried unplugging everything that's connected to my PC other than the controller but no luck. Has anyone else had this problem? Know any solutions?

I'd go, I'm in Chicago.
