This is looking very atmospheric, just what I wanted for the new GTA.

I've been quite behind on information on this one, so is a coop announced? I mean it'll get a MP and the last GTA:SA got somewhat of an attempt on a coop.

No coop, only PVP. Reason given by Rockstar is, it wouldn't fit to have coop in GTA because of the story and characters. IMO that's just a way to say we can't handle it and are focusing on the SP aspect, which is fine to me.

graphically, still very iffy, but im hoping maybe for once it has a solid(ish) framerate and actually adds something new to the mix

Why do they take screenshots, and then have them look like .gifs ????
Im sure its gonna look awesome "in real life" when you actually play it in front of your own tv, but why do soooo many games have ultracrappy screenshot qualities?

Test Drive Unlimited, looks like shit in some screenshots, looks amazing when actually playing it..
Same with Kingdom Under Fire. Same with Halo 3, Forza 2, Saints Row, PGR3&4..
Et cetera.. Even Mass Effect looks alot better than the screenshots, even tough it looks amazing in the screenshots..

And some of them are even .png.. And still look like shit. When a .jpg can look just as good, why save as a .png with all the grainyness and odd sharp edges when various shades of color collide?
I'm not talking about photo manipulation, im talking about simply preserving the quality of the image.
I mean... Who the heck is responsible? I could do their job for free lol.

Impressive. No jaggiez, less ugly texures. Call me crazy but I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that these new shots are from the 360 version. The only real problem I see is the minor shading errors on the white sides of those doors in pic 5 (you can see the diagonal Tri edge inside the quad face where they improperly cut the door holes, instead of looping fully around...) Not a big deal, I guess. If that's the worst of it, then I suppose not a problem. Cuz the shading errors in Crackdown were SO bad. Dark and everywhere.

But anyway, nice screens.

There's a new trailer out as well, looks very cool and atmospheric. They really seem to have created a living, breathing city from what I can tell. The attention to detail is amazing and it just has character...tons of it!

Ok, technically it's not among the best out there; Low res textures, low poly's etc. But overal, it's looking fantastic for the type of game it is and what it promises to (hopefully) deliver. Performance and draw/pop-in is my main concern at this point. Hopefully the game will be smooth as silk when released.

I meant sales wise, and either way is the same size as San Andreas..... just where SA had countryside, it will all be interactive cities in GTA IV

looks good, the graphics look fine, this game for me at least will be all about the fun

This is a bigger leap than 2D GTA from GTA III, said Rockstar. And I do start to agree with them.

Doublethink FTW. I love the satirical nature of that trailer. Reminds me of why I Stopped watching TV so many years ago. Ha. I've seen commercials almost just like that! =]

    rayy Cosmetic lootboxes on overwatch doesnt affect the gameplay at all, and if you play the game enough you get those stuff for free anyways. You really dont have to grind that much tbh. (5 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy Say welcome to seasson passes, split comunity, having to pay more than $60 for the game to get all the maps or heroes I want, so yeah I will take lootboxes on Overwatch over having to buy a season pas (5 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy If you remove lootboxes for cosmetic stuff that doesn't affect gameplay at all on Overwatch, them forget about getting free maps, free new heroes, free content in general. (5 Hours ago)
