It bugs me how Rockstar tries to make it look like Victor Vance is very calm in all of his screenshots.

In the top one, he is just walking down a street, and probably won't turn at all. He'll run into that wall that separates the sand of the beach from the grass, finally get past that, and eventually slowly walk into the ocean and die.

In the second screenshot, Rockstar tries to make it look like Victor is out for a leisurely drive in a golf cart rather than driving fast trying to cause mayhem.

Silly, silly Rockstar...and their rules of screenshot capturing...

What bugs me more is how crappy sites like 1UP/EuroGaymer/GamesRadar and SpyGN all get exclusive screenshots, whereas the fansites (the people that actually care about the games and provide excellent feedback and ideas for their next titles etc.) get jack. monocle.gif

Yes it does. I'd rather not talk much about the situation.

That bugs me to adamcs, it's very silly not to include the people actually supporting your work and making it even more well-known. Plus you look at other gaming companies that even put up for download. Fansite Kits, with trailers, screenshots, information and what not for Fansites to use. Rockstar doesn't do that either confused.gif . I just hope they see what there doing wrong one day.

Very well said adamcs icon14.gif .

Does it really matter what site we get the info from? Info is info whether we get it on ign or gamespot.

Yeah they do say the 17th. Don't get your hopes up though, it'll still come out on the 30th.

Very well said adamcs icon14.gif .

Not only that, the worst part is when these guys watch or play a demo for a review. It should be in the hands of someone who lives GTA! And I am not even talking about me either, there has to be thousands out there more dedicated than me even though I have purchased 2 PCs, 2 PS2s and 1 Xbox just for GTA and I am definately getting a PSP for VCS (admittedly didn't get one for LCS but I wish I had!) How many times will we hear 'ragdoll physics' in these reviews? I don't even care about RDP, but what it means, that the physics in general are improved, but that is a matter for GTA4. All of these reviewers talk about draw distance and PED/Vehicle clumping or lack of, and all I can think about is "can we bunny hop on motorcycles?" "Are there parachutes?" "can we recruit gang members?" I know those questions are all out there, but that is me, I am sure all of you have more pressing questions. Like one article mentioned a grab and throw move during hand to hand combat, and another said something like "combat seems largely unchanged." I know they are probably watching the R* guy play a demo, but what I am trying to say is that a true-blue GTA fan would be able to discern much more important info about the game than some of these reviewers who probably play a GTA title straight through, and then go back to playing their strategy games or WoW.

What is with you guys?
It look ber cool walking calmly with your back towards an explotion, you're responsible for...
If he was running away from the explotion, he would make himself look like somebody who hasn't got everything under control, and he would look more suspecting to the police, also...

I really, really like how calm and cool he is on all the screens cool.gif
