I think it's $40 and they've changed a lot of things that's supposed to make it more enjoyable/difficult.

Yeah, this is going to be a blast. I know there are a lot of LGPers that have GTAV for the Xbox already, I can't wait to get some action going.

Probably just to get everyone's head wrapped around how the game works and see all the changes. If you worked forever on a campaign that's solid, you'd want others to see it all too. But who knows. Dollar goes in, candy comes out, you can't explain that.

I hated that game, but I thought it had the same engine as GTA3? Driving was more smooth in that than in 4 certainly. Haven't played 5.

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.

dat gif...lol. trying to do one of the devin missions where you have to get to the helipad without being noticed was just like that. michael WOULD NOT put his damn arms up to grab ledges when i jumped, he would just dolphin jump with his hands at his sides, and ram his face into the wall then roll off the roof.

Landing planes seems easy to me, landing helicopters sucks.

It usually takes me 2 or 3 passes to land the plane right.

The ticket to landing planes is to drop to a very low altitude and slow your engine til the front propeller is barely spinning. do it early in the landing and coast. you can always give it a little oomph if you need to to get to the checkpoint, if you are doing the flying school. ...parachuting to a moving target is the same principle.

i have problems with the helicopter wobble/sway...its annoying as can be. lego undercover does a much better job with the heli handling :lol:

Yeah depending on how these Pirate games go I'll be playing late. My kids love video games too so I won't be ably to play V until after bedtime.
I was thinking about hooking up my original xbox and taking down the wii in my basement...the kids are bored of the wii.
