    Anyone try out the IFruit app yet? Rockstar has really gone the extra mile to do game relevant things outside the actual game itself. I am impressed.

    So far about 95% of my deaths have been me driving too fast, hitting something and launching myself through the windscreen to my death.

    PS, my best at golf is -2 at the mo ;)

    Yea I don't like how you die sometimes being launched through the windshield. I've only flown out the front glass once though, and I was going really fast. I suppose if you did hit the windshield at crazy speeds it would kill you. I wish the cars didn't blow up quite as easily. The frames should bend instead of blowing up when you ramp it onto the ground.

    I love everything so far.

    Graphics are GORGEOUS.
    Vehicles are really fun to control, and they still have some nice realism to them. It just seems to be a different kind of realism. It feels like to me they lightened the vehicles increased the grip, and gave more steering lock. I honestly wish they had a bit more weight to them, but I only got to play 3 hours last night. Posting this at work waiting to go home.

    Also about the vehicle physics the one thing I do wish really was back like GTA 4 is when you go over curbs in 5 they dont phase you. In 4 you avoid curbs pretty regularly. Especially on motorcycles.


    It's pretty freaking awesome though. Standing there at Franklins house looking at L.A. really makes me feel like I'm in L.A. and makes me want to move there. I have to stop, and slow down to enjoy the sites, because it's all sooooooooooo pretty.

    Also the first mission was pretty badass. I'm liking the story
    even though im not far into it.

    Being in the sea is incredible, and it actually gives me that minor scary feeling of being stranded at sea when you're far out from shore (anyone else get that?). The scale of the waves etc, it's very realistic.

    Which brings me to my next point....the map is FUCKING HUGE! Not quite Fuel level, but I drove North for a pretty long ass time.

    So far, I'm absolutely loving the characters. Like, as people, they're horrible fucking psychopaths and criminals. But as characters, they're fucking wonderful. Like, Michael reminds me a lot of Michael Corleone in the Godfather 2, except in a more modern type way.

    I was a little disappointed by the fact that the map only has one big city in it, but that's a pretty minor thing so far.

    And I hate that the iFruit app is iOS only. I wanna play with Chops, dammit!

    I agree about the characters...I haven't met the third guy yet, but Franklin is awesome

    And the West Coast Classics radio station feels perfect for this game.

    I would love to try out the iFruit app, only problem is rockstar saw how Android has outsold iOS roughly 4-5x every year for the past 3 years and went 'fuck those guys'.
    Despite 2 of the 3 in game characters clearly not using iPhones.

    Bunch of prats.

    Also, the fucking stock market in-game. Means in order to get good money, the game MUST be connected to the internet at all times.
    Fucking awesome, when my PS3 drops PSN every 30 minutes like clockwork.


    Starting to get over my love with the game. The cops are a bloody pain in the ass to get away from unless you want to sit in an alley for 5 minutes, so i end up using the lower wanted level cheat all the damn time. They've traded good car damage effects for 'lol you went over a bump? Enjoy your 1/3rd top speed because of the wheel.
    The controls are typical modern rockstar, otherwise known as 'shit' even with all the attempts to make it better with forced character turning.
    The cars collision boxes are about 2 inches outside of the actual bodies themselves, meaning i hit things all the time i shouldn't have. The shotguns don't have enough spread (realistic and also useless - makes rifles pointless) and some of the 'missions' are complete shit.
    Purchasing properties is utterly useless, too. $1k/wk sounds great until you realize a single Taxi job can get you $300.

    The AI still pulls some retarded moves. You just got crashed into by a big black armored SUV with limo tint and when you go to see what the fuck, a big ass black dude in a suit with sunglasses gets out of the car.
    Do you:
    A.) Punch the dude in the face, then run away screaming when he -gasp- has a 9mm
    or
    B.) Wonder who the fuck's in the back

    It was my first round. But it's almost exactly like Tiger Woods PGA Tour and I play that almost religiously!

    Bring on Friday for Online! Why do I feel as if towns are going to be completely empty this weekend?

    Also,
    Oh, you fell off your bike?

    Oh well, you can just go buy another $2,500 of armor, right?

    I thought online was being released October 1st. Also ten viewers saw me messaging Icepick for words of inspiration. He replied back in a voice message "Mother f*cker, I'm busy beating up strippers."

    I read the iFruit app will soon be available for Android, Windows Phone, and PS Vita.

    Gee I wonder why.

    Speaking of females, I tried to go out with Amanda as Michael, but on my way to pick her up I got a bullshit wanted level, and somehow she got hit by a cop car and injured even though I wasn't too close to her.

    I will agree that wanted levels take WAAAAAAAAY too long to go away, though. No one can see me, I switch cars, and then I have to either hide for five minutes or drive around slowly for five minutes waiting for a one star to go away and praying they don't spawn a cop right on top of me.

    Well I tried to go to the strip club in the hood as Michael then three black dudes started a fight with me for no reason. Beat them up without a gun in hopes of not raising a wanted level then the bouncer joined in, beat him up but got a WAAAAAAY too long wanted level as mentioned above by Longo (aka the coolest black kid I know). Was able to come back after losing the wanted level to hook up with Infernus but they are probably going to have to patch the game to address how long it takes to lose the wanted level...

    They say you can switch cars when out of sight but I got caught once breaking into a car when the cops spawned in the vacinity and then I also had an issue where I swapped cars got back on the road thinking everything was okay...entered the cone of a cop car and had to start the process all over...other than that the game has been a blast though

    I was just driving with a one star wanted level and a cop literally spawned 20 feet in front of me. What the fuck, Rockstar?

    The Ifruit app worked for me the first time I tried it but now seems to have completely shit the bed. Get it together Rockstar.

    I haven't come across too many annoyances yet, just the wanted level issue that everyone else seems to be having.

    I haven't had a problem avoiding cops except for one incident.... possible first heist spoilers?

    When I stole the truck with the knock-out gas in it, it took for fucking ever to lose the cops. I think you're able to wait and steal those vehicles at opportune moments but I was impatient so I stole the gas truck right in front of a cop.

    You guys just suck (or have shit luck) with cops... or it gets easier to lose them as you play.
