^ It's not near the gfx of Crysis 3 on my pc rig but I think I have the gfx of GTA V about as good as one can get it on my new native 720 Samsung 32" led lcd TV playing on the Xbox 360 S. Or maybe someone with a native 720 monitor would be better.

That's assuming a native 720 screen will give better graphics for this game than a 1080 or 1440. GTA V was made at 720 and I've read many who say to get a 720 native for 360 games. But correct me if I'm wrong on any of this. Anyway it looks ok enough for me probably because I want so very very much to enjoy its huge open world that's similar to where I live in San Diego.

OK, I guess I can understand your point there. It can get tedious when for example I am watching a movie with swearing in EVERY bit of dialogue, in a way other than just making me feel uncomfortable. Though in certain movies its just acceptable as part of the culture they are trying to portray.

So as in a GTA, its just the over the top brutal culture of the setting. Is it ridiculous? Absolutely, but that ridiculousness is what they are trying to create. I don't know, I guess that's the best way I can justify it.

And the gameplay mechanics are none too fresh either. I swear it could also be GTA 3 if I squint hard enough. The next one better be a full refresh.

They captured the essence of the characters perfectly with their language. Ive only played the first 2 missions and seen maybe the first 3 cut scenes(with franklin and his friend going to get the cars) and their banter was hilarious and on point. I know people who talk like that on a daily basis no joke. It had me rolling and wanting to pl[ay the game more but Im waiting for that master race version.

Franklin is from the hood. I know people who talk like Lamar does, it's retarded but they did an awesome job of fitting the personality to the character.

Yup yup, I suspect a lot of people in these forums havent been around any hood so they think Rockstar are overblowing the culture and using curse words just to use them... but Rockstar perfectly captured the culture thats just the way it is.

I seen Jay Rock (the artist of that song) live, and he performed that with Kendrick Lamar (the guy who collaborated with him on it).

I went to a Kendrick Lamar concert earlier this month.

Check out this hilarious video of GTA V Franks Sh!tty Vacation. Narrated by Morgan Freeman.
There is some language NSFW, so get out those earphones.

I decided to revisit GTA Online. Been playing about a month or so to get my level, money, and businesses up especially after the Casino addon got released.

Boy, talk about cheaters galore.

Almost impossible to find a lobby without a cheater (modders they like to call themselves). Sometimes they are cool and drop money for everyone. But other times, make themselves invincible or give themselves super powerful weapons and just grief on everyone, or someone they decided to target for no reason.

I didn't even know what the term "griefer" meant until I played this game. Regular griefers I don't mind, but modders griefing? Teleport to you almost instantly and can't kill them because they're invincible? Also make themselves impossible to target or impervious to the orbital cannon (yes I wasted money trying).




The problem is REALLY bad where finding a lobby without any modders is actually rare. Rockstar won't do anything about it.



At this point, you know the old saying. If you can't beat em.....

That is why I despise MP in most games especially sandbox games like GTA. I played the unofficial GTA SA multiplayer (SAMP) before its the same story there. At least I could bug those cheater by using silent knife attack back then, but they get crafty and use helicopter blade, teleport to them to kill people. Unless you have a good online community with private lobby you can be sure to meet these buggers.

Rockstar enjoying money they get from Shark Cards and whatnot. To make matter worse those cheater give tons of money to legit player, reported them and get banned. Heck, my local fb gaming page even provide level up and money support for GTA online for some cash. From there I know how easy to use cheat in this game.
