Im sure I speak for everyone when I say that September cant come soon enough. To make matters worse it looks like we are in for another information blackout.

So in order to help the time pass and prevent this place from turning into a GTA wasteland I think we should revisit the screens we already have. I also think some people will be surprised by the screens they might have missed.

Here is the plan . I will post two screenshots in the OP and change them every day. Each day we will have an opportunity to revisit those screens we already have. Lets look at it with a fresh set of eyes. Discuss what you find interesting about the screens. You can even talk about where you were when you first saw it, or your first thoughts on the screenshots initially. I will start going in sequence of screen release but then eventually I will just make it random. I will continue updating this thread until we get some new info. And even after that, when things die down again, I will try to pick things back up.

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4
Day 5 Day 6 Day 7 Day 8
Day 9 Day 10 Day 11 Day 12
Day 13 Day 14 Day 15 Day 16
Day 17 Day 18 Day 19 Day 20
Day 21 Day 22 Day 23 Day 24
Day 25
Day 26
Let day 26's discussion begin. It starts on page 31.

Good idea for a topic but it's also sad this what we have to do.

Anyway, the second screen has added vignetting or more accurately the effect and ND filter (used for photography) would give.

Look at this example. Look at the sky. It looks like they added it to the screen shot rather than how it really looks in the game.

EDIT: My point is the darkness goes over things other than the sky so that to me is just an example of how Rockstar modify screenshots.

Yeah man, you see the way it darkens over the tress on the top right and it darkens over the pillar thingy on the left. It means the darkness is coming over the image rather than the sky having that look in-game.

I still don't know why they had to add a floating man in white.

Especially in civilian clothes in a Grand Theft Auto game! You possibly might be on to something..

If you look carefully, there's that black steel bar where the police would rappel down from. This feature wasn't in IV, but it's something it seems they are bringing back from the older GTAs.

I'm not. I see that this is not a call for more news. BUT, it's all just striking me as being  desperate for something to do.

How about we do this when there's something new to look at?

So your rebuttal is that we just sit on our hands until we have actual info, which im sure we can both agree could not be for another couple of months.

I figured this is a decent way of keep people excited while we wait. Keep the forums talking

Aren't all the other threads people talking? Isn't this just the Screenshot Fun thread, but very slightly different?

Whatever, I'll duck out and let you get on with it.

I know the first screen gives us a decent view of some of the city but I find it one of the most boring. Also, the second screen looks a bit rubbish compared to the rest.

I look forward to seeing what's in store for us tomorrow. Are you just going to put them up in random order, or roughly when they were released to the public?

I understand what your saying, its a shame that this is the kind of thing we are resorting to. But no, its not a screen shot thread. Its a second look thread essentially.

@jamie: After today they will be random. I agree about the first screen. The fact that we were starved ade the screen exciting, but it really is a lackluster screenshot

I think one of the first things I noticed was how wide and open the streets felt. Compared to the tight routes in IV

Maybe that means that while Trevor pilots the chopper, we'll be able to repell down it?

Yea, it seems like they are going to be bringing the rappeling back. The GI issue mission had Mike rappel on top of the building at the beginning

As much as I'd like rapelling to be available anytime, I think there'll be certain anchor points throughout the city. I do think you're right about being able to do it from helicopters (not just police helicopters either), especially due to the three protagonist switching mechanic.

I remember being the first one to find the jogger in the second screenshot. It's not much, but it's least it's something.

Yeah, but the game in that stage is 14 months before completion.

My point is the darkness goes over things other than the sky so that to me is just an example of how Rockstar modify screenshots.

The dark effect of the screenshot does not have to mean that it's edited. It probably looks like this because of the timecycle that Rockstar used at that time. I have used an ingame Timecyc Editor for GTA San Andreas to edit everything timecycle related and it was possible for me to let appear the game in the fairly same style as that GTA V screenshot. If the settings (lightning colours for static and dynamic objects, colour of sky top and sky bottom, colour correction, sun core and corona colour, et cetera) are done right then it's possible to let appear the game as 'dark' as it's in this case.

Cool topic man icon14.gif I remember I tried and tried to figure out who that was flying that damn helicopter! I finally decided it was Michael or Balcony guy as he was known as at the time. colgate.gif

Off topic
Did we ever decide that Red car guy was in fact, Franklin?
