It appears that the respect system was removed. Guess the higher ups felt it was stupid and unnecessary.

Trying to converse with my mother is extremely annoying. Whenever I try to talk to her she always says that I only see her when I need something. I then try to go visit her and hold a conversation with her, but then she just turns up her music or puts her ear-buds in and ignores me. I then ask her why she wants me to talk to her if she ignores me every time. Well a few loudly spoken words later and our would-be conversation is now an argument. When I try to find out what her interests are the same crap happens each time. I honestly don't understand what she expects me to do. Each time she talks to me about something it's the same repetitive crap about how she loves Maria Kerry or some other crap about music singers. Whenever I try to talk to her about real world events,science, or technology she always either gets angry at me for no apparent reason or turns her music up and ignores me even more. I really don't know what she expects me to do.

Find a common interest or get interested in (or at least learned enough to discuss) what she's interested in. People mostly aren't going to change their interests to accommodate for you so you have to do it yourself.

 

Sometimes it's best to talk about whatever's going on currently. Is your mother baking? Ask her what she's baking. Comment on how good it smells. Is your mom listening to music? Ask her what she's listening to. Make small talk if you can't do anything else.

Am I the only one who thinks there are too many pinned topics in the V section? I finally realised when this got pinned, I mean seriously... a thread about some guy who thinks backseat mods are pathetic, then the rest of the f*cking post is him being a backseat mod, not to mention this. No one reads it and whether they do or not people still post leaks, finally this topic is also really unnecessary apart from the fact we have a countdown in the V section already, the topic is RARELY updated, the thread is advertised as "counting down the days with the V timeline" there have only been 8 timeline points in the OP and the thread was updated 2 days ago. I remember being told loads of topics were being unpinned to "sort out the V section before launch" but now it's a distorted cesspool of bumped topics, troll topics and pinned topics.

If I catch any of you using a cell phone while operating a car I will punch you in the throat. And I'm not just talking about using the phone like a phone, or even text messaging...even just checking in on notifications=punch to the throat.

Sometimes I get myself worked up about how messy and problematic the V section can be but then I just think In one week everything will be different. I'm pissed I couldn't get my SE copy of V to arrive day one but oh well, hopefully it'll come that Friday. Til' then I'll have to avoid these forums :( because I don't want to spoil myself. Unfortunately I looked at the leaked map of V and I feel bad because it won't be a surprise anymore.

Can't Miley Cyrus go worse on her new music video? Don't know but it's far crass from before apart from the twerking in her previous music video.

The amount of sh*t GTA IV gets on this site is unprecedented. You can't go very far without someone taking a jab at it, even when the topic at hand has nothing to do with it. There's a difference between criticism and ragging on a game because it's the "hip" thing to do. It's almost as bad as how people bash COD at every turn because it makes them look cool. 

 

Meh. Opinions really are like assholes.

The only reason I went there was because I have a sudden insane urge to play GTA V. And I watched the gameplay trailer again and saw the leaked map and got really hyped. I can't believe that in 5 days we are going to actually play GTA V. Well at least not me, since I'm a PC gamer. Guess, I just have to content myself with watching gameplay videos on youtube (free-roam) until V releases for PC.

The map looks kinda just like Panau on Just Cause 2. But anyways I can't wait to play it myself as well.

I don't know if I should express this here as it is about GTA V but I am really pissed off at the gameplay of it. Here goes nothing:

 

So I'm pretty sure that many of you are aware of GTA V leaking right now. This is not a spoiler post so don't worry. People complained about IV's driving physics so much and it seems that Rockstar listened to them and then made a pretty bad mistake. They implemented physics that looks worse than Midnight Club: Los Angeles' driving. :sui:

 

I mean it feels like Rockstar and the reviewers hyped everything up higher than the game itself. I'm one to analyze every piece of info and well got my hype up but I wasn't expecting too much, or so I thought. I watched the leaked gameplay videos and then many of the driving videos. I literally felt my hype drop while watching these cars turn, speed, and crash. I mean the trailers looked so good. The game... not so good. The driving looks like Saints Row, San Andreas, and MC:LA physics mixed together. :barf: I don't even know if I should continue my pre order. This Friday the 13th has literally been a bad day for me. I know it sounds pathetic but I feel like I've wasted 2 years of my life following this game just to be disappointed. I drive like 90% of the time in GTA so driving is big. I don't know if I should get the game anymore, I'm thinking about cancelling my pre order. :(

 

Just putting that out here because I wanted to express my feelings without getting chewed out by some V section members. /rant

Cancelling your pre-order just because the driving looks like sh*t? How do you know that it is bad anyway, dude, remember you haven't even played the game yet even then cancelling your pre-order just because the driving is bad is like the stupidest thing ever, there are so many other features to make up for it.

 

Sorry if I sound rude, but what you are doing is very stupid mate.

@StingrayX - It doesn't look that bad. It'll just have to be something new we all have to get used to, like the weird cover system or default walking speed in IV. It can't be bad enough to take away from the rest of the game enough to make it a bad game, just a quirky feature that'll probably be tuned with future patches if absolutely needed.

Fair call, honestly I used to do it too much, I stopped lately, still fiddle at the lights though. It's just habit to use your phone at every occasion these days.

Anyway, I'm Grumpy because I agreed last night to go out again tonight. and I am not feeling it at all haha. I got home at 7:30am which is usually when I get to work, and I showered, went to bed and chucked on the night cap and ear plugs and slept until 3pm. Man I am regretting a few things from last night, and it's 3pm so there is like no time to really hang with anyone till I go out again. I am happy I got a solid sleep, but grumpy I slept the day away.

@StingrayX:  Keep in mind that the majority of people I've seen driving must have 10 unopposable thumbs, so I would not judge the handling physics on those horrible drivers alone.

I'm f*cking sick of dweeb pre-teenager hormonal boys posting spoilers in the thread titles. That includes features in the game.

For example

Thread Title: ZOMG: There's [list all wildlife here] in da gaem!!!!

It should be: List of wildlife in GTA V.

Make a forum called "Leaks & Spoilers Here" but make it so only the thread starter can see their threads :p they think they've posted a "lol hur hur I got the game early" thread for their digital penis length increase, and we don't have to put up with it :p

The console gamers who claim that piracy is the biggest issue on PC and yet go out of their way and pirate V for 360 and PS3 it's just pathetic.

:^: You can't say anything even slightly negative over there or you'll be called a spoiled brat. :lol: @zoo, I looked at some footage, my last footage too (not going to look at anymore footage nor go into the V section until Tuesday) and I got my hopes up again. Some guy was driving an Oracle 1 and it looks very similar to IV's physics. I hope most of the sedans drive like that as sedans will be my main cars. Yeah I overreacted my first post :blush: but I love driving in GTA and it just haves to be suitable for me to enjoy it. I guess I can get used to the supercar handling a bit. :)

GTA has always had arcady driving except for IV. I think it's better that way as it keeps the action more fluid. Spending ages taking corners has no extra value in GTA and only slows the game down.

 

GTA IV had it's very own vibe in this respect. IV tried to compensate it's lack of features with a serious tone and 'realism', and that was fine back then, but I won't miss it. So yeah, I enjoy GTA going back to it's roots in this respect. And calling it 'like in Saints Row' is completely misplaced. Saints Row is a GTA rip off in every way, so acting like some feature is stolen from Saints Row is just nonsense.

 

I saw some driving in leaked footage, and thought it looked fine. It's more arcady than IV and I like that. Though the guys driving I've seen thusfar drive absolutely terrible, so I'll have to judge it for myself when the game is in my console and the controller is in my hands in a few days.

 

And the complaining about the damage in the V section is the biggest bullsh*t I've ever seen. Damage seems to look exactly the same as it did.
