I made some bullet points for some things that sound interesting and new.
.Blaine County has many rustic towns

. Flights to 5 locations starting at $499

.Traffic laws were mentioned to being enforced.

.Watch out for dog leavings not to step in it.

.Erratic driving or police chases could pop over the curb and kill you on the beach.

.Don't stare at half naked Women, they get irritated and shout or shoot at you.

.Hotdog Carts on the Beach will help with health

.The mountain area is so big you could get lost very easily.

.The base is near Grape seed and has lots of advanced Military Machinery. It's not easy to get on base and steal.

.You can't drive Golf carts on the streets of Los Santos(possible wanted level?)

.The Observatory is functioning and a secret meeting spot

.Climbing the Vinewood sign gives you an incredible view and a wanted level if you are caught.

.Watch out for Crop Dusters, they are inconsiderate and will spray you if you are in the way.

.If you get caught touching other peoples expensive cars and such in Los Santos, they get angry.(think of Repo's oooo)

.Richman Hotel functions and you can stay there.

Calm the f*ck down people, the whole "traffic laws must be obeyed" thing is an obvious joke. Who abides by the traffic laws in a GTA game? That's what they were playing at.

This preview has really annoyed me because:
A. They claimed to have the others "beat" which implies that they have significantly more info/screens than the rest. No.
B. With the minuscule amount of possible new info they have, they f*cked up. They've tried to be humorous to such an extent that you can't tell whether what they say is just a joke or real info (like dogs taking sh*ts) or whether they're just pulling crap outta their ass (like with the Richman hotel thing).

This is what has me annoyed as well.

Not everyone is perceptive enough to tell what's real and what's bullsh*t.

On page 050 they say this about scuba diving:

"you can do it anywhere in the game world (both water and boat permitting)."

You better not need a boat to get scuba gear. That would be as ridiculous as if the only way to get a parachute was to access a plane.

What i wonder is if we can even go underwater without scuba gear. I hope we can, we shouldn't be limited to scuba gear. No doubt these guys won't last long underwater without scuba gear, but it should be possible.

And that summary that someone here posted....as if Rockstar would actually 'forbid' players to use a golf cart in the streets of LS, and thus give a wanted level? Come on now. Sure we couldn't enter the airport in GTA IV and i guess that kinda made sense, but we COULD drive a golf cart on the streets, no reason to change that. Clearly all meant in a jokingly way.

I don't believe there would be a Breath meter that you can "skill up" if we couldn't dive without SCUBA gear.

Is this for real? That's f*cking great! I love these bits of information much more than visuals!
The interaction with half naked girls, the dirty dog sh*t that ruins your fresh bought shoes and getting people mad if you touch their expensive ride.
Also getting wanted levels while doing something illegal without killing the whole town!

This game is gonna be so f*cking awesome Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif

Well R*has a great history with only one magazine and that is Gameinformer. As you can tell GI was the first mag to get a preview before anyone else and that is only because they treated R* with respect when they were starting out.

Any other magazine will just get the same info thats been out.

There's a lot of good info in the article. It's presented in a "what to expect from LS if you visit there" touristy kind of way and i enjoyed the read. If you can't read through the article and figure out what it's hinting at then you're probably
a) a kid who shouldn't be playing an "M" rated game to begin with
or
b) an idiot.

It's obvious what they're hinting at, the reliability of their information, however, is questionable.

They haven't stated anything as a fact, I still suspect that the Richman Hotel bit was just them committing to their tourist guy theme, rather than it actually being new information confirming that you can stay in a hotel.

I don't read a video game preview for a good read, I want facts and information that is in no way sketchy or ambiguous. If i wanted a good read I would pick up a book.
You don't watch porn for the plot now do you?

I'll also give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that your post wasn't aimed at me and that you just happened to structure it in the same way.

The article spoke about buying all kinds of things at the market. I think we all remember the screenshot that showed the mime, right? And plenty of market stands and things, i hope all these are interactive. It would be cool if there's stands solely for sunglasses and others that have caps/hats and so on. Sure it would be handy to just have all that in one store, but we need more interactivity.

There is nothing major that is new. I did see a few things which I personally had not seen before but may very well have been in other previews.

(Note: I left out things I thought were clearly a joke such as all traffic laws having to be obeyed at all times etc.)

TAKE THE FOLLOWING WITH A HUGE GRAIN OF SALT AS THE ARTICLE IS WRITTEN IN A HUMOURS WAY SO THIS INFO MAY NOT BE 100% ACCURATE:

Submersible Tours

Criminal Peds & Erratic Drivers: "Criminals and erratic drivers who will mount the curb and/or drive onto the beach; these people will literally kill you"

Criminal Peds In The Wilderness

Crop Dusters Actively Fly About While You Explore The Farms Etc And Are "...inconsiderate to anyone working on the ground."

Train Goes From Los Santos To Mount Chilliad

Climbing The Vinewood Sign MAY Result In A Wanted Level As It's Illegal

Lifeguards On The Beach (I know we saw their towers in the trailer but had not seen anything about actual ped lifeguards)

MAY Be Able To Be Struck By Lightning

Breaking Into The Military Base Results In Immediate Highest Wanted Level

Eating Hotdogs To Restore Health: Could not tell if they were being serious as we know there will be regen health so maybe the hotdogs fill up the special meter/smth else or they were just making a reference to IV.

Crashed Planes With Drugs And Guns On The Seafloor: "There's no telling what kind of treasure you might find on the ocean floor, but we must stress if you find any planes filled with guns and drugs please report them to the authorities."

"Probably" Able To Skydive In Scuba Gear

Hitchhiking On The Train (landing on top while it's on the move) MAY Result In You Getting Shot/A Wanted Level

If we can find Planes in the ocean filled with drugs that should pretty much confirm drug dealing. If this is the case the first time I get to play as Franklin Im going to steal a boat and find a drug plane and head to the Vinewood Hills where the money is then the hood to get the rest of the drugs off.

Drugs and maybe weapons hidden in those wrecks. Nice way to make some money and buy a weapon or so. Nice touch!

Actually, you only Regenerate 50% of your health, the est you have to deal with yourself, via Medkits, & probably food, like in Past GTA's.
