Re: GTA V - releases September 17

After the tutorial I took my blimp for a ride and saw another blimp so I decided to ram it. After a fight my blimp lost engine power and I went down in a fiery crash. So I got my blimp again and landed on a heli pad on the tall building downtown. Well my blimp slipped and was hanging off the side of the roof Tried for 10 mins to save it.

Then I just jumped. Amazing fun

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

I don't know if it's possible to see everything in this game, so much stuff to do. I'll never get tired of walking up to some random fat girl and KOing her with one punch. Need to find a Smokey soundboard to play everytime it happens.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

How long would it take to download the game via the Playstation store? Can't decide if I should download or buy the disc.

i started at about 12:30 am and it was finished when I woke up at about 9:00am


defiantly >4 hours i believe + about a half hour install

it sucked but i heard some people were having freezing problems with the disc version so maybe it was worth the wait for the download

but it takes long as fk and don't expect to play until the next day

on the flip side if you buy the disc version you can probably play within a half hour of popping the disc in and maybe you won't get the freeze issue or it will obv be patched prolly soon if it hasn't been already

i've read the opposite so it's probably a coin toss

if i could do it over again i would choose the disc version because waiting for the 18GB install was brutal

plus i was worried it would finish and i would get a corrupted data or something, which thankfully i didn't

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Only complaint is the amazing police response time in literally the middle of no where. My god Ive been driving through the countryside for like 2 hours and just continuously find cool spots. The map never ends!

Simply put, having both discs installed to the 360's HDD appears to create a bottleneck for the engine as it attempts to draw these assets from the same source, but playing straight from disc gives us comparable results to PS3. This hampers the experience much more than the launch issues Skyrim had, where that game suffered from similar texture-streaming when installed. In this case, the engine is apparently optimised to utilise bandwidth from both the disc drive and HDD at once.

wouldn't surprise me

i'm taking the approach of doing missions first, and expecting to be brought to these type of locations through the missions, if not then after i complete all the missions i'll have plenty of time to explore and find these things

Yup, campers, hikers, I was even on a boat and found a remote beach where a couple parked their jet skis and set up a camp

there is a cheap converter that you can pick up at bestbuy/maybe walmart that plugs an hdmi cable into the monitors pin connection that works for me, if ur monitor has HDMI than you obv don't need the converter though
