One of the interesting things about Michael is that he is protected by the FIB. I am wondering how they will factor into the story.

They never said he was protected by the FIB. They said he made a deal with them in the past.

He is in witness protection. So yeah, he's getting protection.

Wonder if we can play a round of golf with some agents.

This song reminds me of Michael for some reason. I guess it's because he is watched, and protected, by the FIB.

No, seriously, full length movies? That's amazing but how is it possible? Even on my phone a ten minute (porn) video takes up 150mb...

Agreed. So does Tracy. inlove.gif

Anyway, Michael's trailer was def. my favorite. Gave me a great Vice City vibe! Loving how he is Addicted To Chaos, but yet he still cares for his family. My favorite part has to be when Michael yanked the remote away from Tracy. Michael kind of felt bad after he did it (that's what I got from his facial expression), but after a second he seemed to just shrug it off and enjoy his drink. Speaking of which, this guy seems like a heavy drinker. I wonder if that will contribute to his short temper, as Dan Houser said he would have...

The therapist seems pretty cool too. Therapy cut-scenes are going to be great.


Addicted to chaos?

Well, I wouldn't say that, doc.

do you guys think Michael is Italian?....

To me, he seems like a typical white guy-a mix of many european nationalities, but of course a born and raised american. He could be italian though, his surname will reveal a lot.

I like how Michael is seen smashing Jimmy's tv in this scene, and with his shirt off in another shot (which I think is also Jimmy's room)

Can't wait to see how that plays out.

I am interested in learning Michael's back story. He does not seem the type to betray anyone, yet he is in witness protection. He also took a possible shot gun blast to the chest (scarring noted in his trailer when he lays & the bed). Does it mean that he was betrayed by his former crew & left for dead. He managed to survive & decided to get out, thinking that he'll be okay as long as he has his family with him. Unfortunately his family is very dysfunctional. Does his former crew feature at all (perhaps looking for revenge)

If he's in witness protection then he's probably snitched on other people, which means that other people could well be after him later on in the story.

No doubt. Franklin or Trevor may find out more about him as the story progresses. I just see Michael as a castaway in the end. I mean he has a son (Jimmy) so the story could pass on in future iterations. It's almost a certain...almost bored.gif

Looks like Michael doesn't f*ck around. Good to see that he isn't a push-over kind of father, considering he's still a killer.

Maybe he is a pushover prior to the events of V though. Considering his family is rich & spoiled because of his money, that could be the main reason he is so miserable. His family loves his money more than they do him. That could be why he decides to return to crime.

To feel alive again.

Also, maybe once he does return to crime, it will change his personality. Perhaps then he will be more assertive over his family... in turn, actually fight for their love.

They borrowed elements from Scarface for Vice City... so who's to say they won't borrow elements from Breaking Bad for V?

Dan Houser claims he's never seen Breaking Bad. He says he's gone out of his way to *not* watch a lot of current stuff like that because he didn't want to be influenced by it.

He's the main writer, but there are others of course... so who knows.
