Never a full animal but a sheep's lungs and a pig's heart. I found both to be very interesting even if I never used that knowledge out in "the real world".

I currently drive 25 minutes each way to get to my retail job, but its a pretty good job and the area I live in has very few jobs available, I was only able to get the one I got because I am older than most retail workers here and had a fair few years experience in retail. The drive is easy tho seeing as its all highway and rarely is there a ton of traffic.
If I move back in with my parents next year (no rent, free food, etc etc) I will have to commute and hour and a half each way to get into the state capital for University in the CBD. But the way I see it is that I will be saving so much money that it will be worth it. Can always do readings/assignments on the train at least. Unlike driving.
I don't have a problem with it being historically bullshit because you know, video games, except that they keep going on about how accurate parts of it are. Like how they have brought in experts in Roman warfare etc. None of what I have seen has been anything close to what actual Roman combat was.
Actual Roman combat was in reality quite boring and methodical, basically hide behind your shield until you see an opening and then slice or stab at the enemy's throat or calf, then move forward to the next enemy. Now considering that, I totally get why that would not make a good game but if that is the case then shut up about your game being accurate! And all those fake uniforms and armour with the triangles, god.
That being said, I think it looks really nice, I haven't seen enough gameplay demos for me to know if the gameplay would be as nice as the graphics. Yet to make my mind up on this one.
I like that they went out of their way to show him as "bad" on a whole other level. GTA characters have always had some sort of honour or integrity on some level despite being criminals. Trevor is psychotic. He has none of that. It also added gravity for later on when Michael and his FIB guy are talking about how he must be dead, as though they are trying to convince themselves he must be gone.
All of that being said it annoyed me that Johnny went from what he was to meth addict with no explanation or anything.
I have no doubt the next one is going to be Vice City. After that I think they need to change it up, either go outside America to say fake London, Paris, Rome etc or go to the future or something. A GTA game that is inspired by Bladerunner would be insane but at the same time would take a ton of work to make the world believable.
Hey I just came back from London earlier this week! Seeing as you'll be studying there no doubt youll make friends with lots of locals who will help you out.
My advice, British pubs are awesome. As is the underground (the subway, if you didn't get that). I would get yourself a decent travel guide (Lonely Planet or Rough Guides are good) and go from there. Have an awesome time Duder!
