As always,wait for several reliable reviews before you purchase anything. I can only hope that Rockstar doesn't deliver us a sloppy PC version like so many developers do these days. I only wish more PC gaming developers had the integrity and dedication like companies such as Valve.
We'll find out very soon.

I'm really hating the fact I HAVE to create a live account to play the game. I don't hardly play games online, I have no interest in it yet there going to grab me by the balls anyway. I don't want to support Microsoft's Live system, in the PC gaming world there is no need for such a closed dictated to system. I don't believe them when they say that Live is "free" to use, this is only till they brainwash enough lemmings to use it. I bet Microsoft threw a bunch of money at Rockstar and others to get this "exclusive approval" for Windows live - they'll be looking to recoop that cash at one point.

As for the reviewer's problems a whole bunch of games have issues running in 64-bit mode (just take heed all those that are running it). I'm really worried about all these game ending bugs though in such a short period of game time. I think my hype excitement level is slowly draining, by the sound of it I guess it's for the best.

Oh and to those that hope Rockstar will release a patch on the PC if there is bugs? lol.gif lol.gif lol.gif

Just create an offline profile if you want to play the game. Windows Live is free, regardless what your paranoid mind may think.

Windows Live scares me, it was a total failure for Kane and Lynch. Even to this date it doesnt work. And how the hell are we supposed to build communities and clans around this system ? What about clan servers ?
They better give us dedicated servers.

"with dualcore and 8800 card" what a ingenious description.
hope it's got better quadcore support than stylkerCS. and also my 8800GT oc shouldn't have trouble with it(the author could have slower 8800gts).
@duffman12: 4 sure. move the uploading.

It seems like R* are pulling out all the stops and more to stop the pirates, good play !

Surely logging in to 2 different things isn't that hard for paying customers, I'm sure it will be as easy as pie lol


Personally I can't rate these reviews untill it's the finished release they have tested.
