Nothing is better than the punching in this game. The full-sprint-sucker-punch is so satisfying.

Yesterday I turned the game on and began as Trevor. It zoomed in to him in his underwear, talking to a girl who was sitting in the outside seating area of a food establishment.

"So you don't eat meat but you suck ****? IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE TO ME!"

I laughed so incredibly hard.

Yesterday I went on a punch fest as Trevor. Went around sucker punching everyone I saw, pulled a dude out of his car and slugged him, everyone that stopped to look I beat the hell out of, and then I punched a cop.

Was a satisfying 20 minutes of playtime.

I spent an hour trying to get to the military base with the jet fighter. I kept crossing random events and then I had to do them. 1 was a guy tied to a poll in his underwear that needed a ride to his wedding, the other was the get away driver in the middle of the road. Finally made it to the military base, tried to steal the fighter jet twice died both times, was actually in the process of getting into the jet the first time, the second time tanks where every where and destroyed me. Shooting/Hunting with Cletus was fun. I find flying to be pretty enjoyable. In the mission you get the planes with trevor, my first flight was 10 seconds long. I took off tried to circle around lost my orientation and drove the sucker right into the ground. I still have not gotten very good at landing yet.

The official rap...
Initially, you’ll be able to create races and deathmatches, which are probably the simplest. And then, over time, when we feel comfortable that people are ready to get the new creators, they will be released. So it’ll be a trickle, but it’ll be a constant release of new creators and new content. We don’t want to overdo it. It’s a complex system. That’s another reason for the two week delay between single-player and Online. We want to give people an opportunity to actually get their heads around what’s happened, because even single-player is a big advancement from the old games. There’s a lot of new things to learn.

---

We want it to be known as a different entity, a separate thing, and it’ll grow on its own. It’ll be GTA Online; it’s not part of GTA V. Obviously it’s set in the GTA V engine, but it’s going to grow and evolve into its own thing.

It's actually pretty common to ship games that aren't totally 100% complete. Last publisher I worked at shipped a huge casino game that was supposed to have an online community. Developer couldn't get it to work, but we had orders to fill so we fulfilled those and spent the five weeks between ship and street dates hoping the dev could finish the patch. They did, so when consumers bought the title and installed the game they were faced with a 500mb download (for a game that only had a 1.5Gb footprint) to make the online part work.

Frustrating, but very commonplace.

I agree with that Tifosi. I heard someone say that the two week delay gave the developers and extra 6-8 weeks to continue working. Hard to imaging 1.5-2 months making that much of a difference when they had 5 years to work on the game, but I guess every second counts when you are making something as big as GTA. I have 0 complaints because the single player has been more than enough for me and probably will be for another 2 weeks. Having said that I will defiantly be checking out the online stuff as soon as I can.

@10:00 I sat down to play an hour before bed last night, 3 hours later ugh I better get some sleep!!!! at least half of that time had to be just messing around exploring and shooting random people as trevor. I have not found a convenient store to rob yet. That is like #1 on things I want to do. Stealing the fighter jet is a close #2.

So is the GTA V online going to be cross platform? Has anyone created a LGP crew on the rockstar social network?

Cross platform as in PC-console, or PS3-Xbox?

Not sure if Trevor does it, but Franklin has that long, drawn out, hauling that punch from as far back as possible swing.

That would be amazing, but I'm not sure how they'll figure out how to do that.

Not sure how I feel about that steam controller. I'd have to give it a test drive.

While in flight school, I flew through the course with 30 seconds left to spare to achieve gold, and I ended up finishing the mission with 3 seconds before failing.

The nice thing about the Steam Machine is that one won't be limited to using that controller. If you want to use a regular keyboard and mouse, you can. I would also imagine you could use other controllers—even those from Sony or Microsoft. Since SteamOS is open-source software, it’s just a matter of someone writing a driver.

What Steam is planning could be a woeful failure, or this could be the future of gaming. I’m excited to see how it turns out. For one thing, if SteamOS takes off and becomes an accepted platform for game publishing, that means I could flush Microsoft from my life because the only reason I own a Windows computer is to play games. I’d love to install SteamOS on that hardware and kiss Windows goodbye.

So, I completed the first heist, blah blah blah and was given control of Trevor. For the first couple missions/screwing around with Trevor, it said I couldn't switch characters because they were laying low after the heist. That message has disappeared, but I still can't change characters yet. This normal?

So far in GTA V I only did the first repo mission with franklin, but I've logged over 100 miles driving around.
I'm looking forward to the online component, add my ps id: Viva_la_Ben65
