  1. what does the scale say in the bottom left of the map? and also, if someone could make that out and do some measuring, we can finally end the "How big is the map really (in sq miles)" debate.
  2. this article (the budgeting one) http://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/technology/new-gta-v-release-tipped-to-rake-in-1bn-in-sales-1-3081943 says that the world is 49 square miles (assuming that doesn't consider water, which i realize will be cool but just in terms of land mass i'm interested in right now). how much bigger is that than iv? san andreas? vc?
  3. this. a. this game's gonna get phenomenal reviews, so all this talk about "who cares if it gets negative reviews" is kinda a moot point. b. like i said earlier, i'm just curious to see how good a score V is gonna get. i really wanna see if anyone gives it a post-perfect score, cuz it's one thing for a fan to say "20/10, greatest game everrrrr," but it's kinda cool seeing a legitimate publication being so taken aback by a game that it breaks its own scoring standards. c. i don't base my like/dislike of games or really anything on critics' judgment. personally, i'd rank the main gta games: s.a., v.c., iv, iii, even though i'm sure that order doesn't reflect their hierarchy in terms of critical scores (ex: iv got perfect scores from a lot of sites and i liked it less than even vice city stories).
  4. i hear what everyone's saying about the possible negative reviews deterring people from playing this game (not that i think there will be any anyway). i realize that wouldn't happen. the reviews are gonna be great and you'd have to be an idiot to be influenced by anyone (reviewer or otherwise) to not play this game. but, i just kinda like seeing things i'm a fan of get officially deemed godly by "authorities" on the matter (pitchfork for music, rotten tomatoes for movies, tv.com for tv shows, etc.). and, yes, it has been 5 years and they're expecting 5 years of progress but for shit's sake this game is gonna be off the charts good and i'd like to see some score literally reflect that (>10.0). fingers crossed that'll happen...
  5. soooo i was just wondering when to expect reviews for gta v to surface? i saw that the most recent saints row got reviews by a lot of the main publications from 8-14-8/16 and the game was released on the 20th. so do you guys think gta v will follow this trend and we'll get reviews around the 12th? also, i'm interested to see how these publications are gonna possibly score this game. i feel like the unbelievable improvements it's made over iv have to warrant v getting a better score than that. but, as that game got perfect-near perfect scores from basically everyone, do you think some places will pull an french uncharted 2 review and go above 10?
  6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANRS5ohPW0E anyone else notice during this video at :23, there's a shot of los santos elementary!? there's no way this game has kids, right? right!? also, in light of sandy hook, i'm kinda shocked they still included an elementary school at all, even if there are no kids (which i'm almost certain will be the case).
  7. hmm, i just saw this (comparison done at 1:50ish) after my post and it shows 5 IV maps fitting in the V one. either way it's gonna be huge.
  8. so... one of you map-savvy people should come up w/ an IV comparison to the V map. kinda like how dupzor posted V's CITY framework over the whole thing, i'm curious as to see how many complete IV maps you could fit onto the whole V one (roughly, i know it's still a non-precise rough outline of the map's framework).
  9. wow, i thought north west was losing some steam thanks to the royal baby, but good to see she's getting some attention on the gta forums.
  10. i'm gonna hail a cab, have him drive me into the wilderness and then jack his car and just taunt him and see if he can somehow make it back to civilization.
  11. omg has anyone else noticed this? during the michael trailer (at about :52 of this video: )there's a wacky waving arm flailing inflatable tube man in the background?!?! i am unbelievably excited about this.
  12. soo i'm thinking this might just be shrubbery, but it's worth a look. remember during IV when this pic revealed a map in a police vehicle? well, i noticed in this screenshot, if you look into the front winsheild and next to the cop hangning out of the suv, there appears to be either a bush in the background... or a map? doubtful it's a map, but, again, the IV map was revealed via police vehicle, so you never know. thoughts? http://www.igta5.com...d-a-red-car.jpg
  13. shit, they must've forgot to mention the new terrorist-recruitment feature in the previews.
  14. i'm gonna fly a plane into the wind turbines and see if it gets spun around post-blowup. and then i'll respawn and crash my plane onto the yacht and the beachgoers. fuck it, i'll crash a plane into the muscle beach gym section. oh my god the possibilities with planes back.
  15. top 2 plus the exploding boat one are my favorite. it seems that explosions in general are just gonna be wholly badass in this game.
  16. sooo where would this be on the blueprint map? http://www.igta5.com/images/official-screenshot-relaxing-by-the-lake.jpg it's hard to tell, cuz the whole thing's blue so the fact that it's water doesn't really help me out.
  17. i think the above map is a bit optimistic in terms of extra countryside space. plus, it doesn't really show many (if any) little towns. i can't believe the map would be THAT forest/mountain heavy.
