Roleplay that... in bed Hehe

As long as it doesn't end up being self service.

Dangggg, that's a good one! It's different now than the old days though when you had service boys to come do all this for you and even maybe wash it for you at the same time.

Maybe since it's a sport car we could get some performance out of it. Sacrifice top speed for mad torque and acceleration.

I hope it looks like Eddie's car from that show "Grounded For Life". He bought an electric car, and the episode started with him walking through his brother's house to plug his car into the kitchen outlet. Then when he was driving away, his brother could walk faster than this thing went, and only had to grab on to it to stop it. Haha. Would be so funny in GTA

my assumption for electric cars is just to keep the game realistic with the times. hybrids and electric cars are becoming more and more popular, and R* wants to illistrate this. this doesnt confirm there will be fuel in the game, in fact i HIGHLY doubt it will be. i just think R* wants to keep the game as up-to-date with the times as possible.

ROFL. I rember that.

Why not? I would be down for it being in the game, maybe call it the Eddie no reason we can't have a fast Sexy EV and a slow one like that lol.

It might be a parady of a new sports car that is electric. If I recall correctly, it is made by Lamborghini or Ferrari.

There is one made by Tesla, I think that is the one you are on about. biggrin.gif

i guess its similar to NFS most wanted. NFS most wanted also had an electric car (tesla roadster) but no fuel system. its just faster acceleration and different engine noise

In GTA 5oclock they brought up the subject of the electric car and it being available in multiplayer.

Didn't think much of it. Then I had a brain storm. alien.gif

What's the most frustrating thing that happens in GTA IV races. You're in the lead and you've
got one lap to go. Then some cheating b**** camps near the finishing line and shoots out your
gas tank causing your car to explode and you loosing the race.

Now what if you had a car where there's no gas tank to shoot? Now mod that car and add
run flat tyres...

Now try and shoot me b****es devil.gif

GTA IV cars didn't have gas tanks like in SA which would instantly blow up if shot at...

I hope it has a lot of torque like real electric cars do. Good thing it's gonna be in the standard game, I would hate exclusive vehicles bored.gif

High end electric car? Sounds like a Tesla Model S knock off to me.

No gas amigo. Just a different feel and engine noise. Variety of vehicles.

A Fisker seems much more likely as it is an electric sports car. I personally think this does hint at gas.

I don't really want gas. It would make those night time road trips through the desert amazing, but there is nothing stopping you from parking up your car next to the pump and going into the store to get a sprunk or whatever.

But they still blew up if you repeatedly shot the rear end of the vehicle - just above the wheel arch.
That can't happen with an electric car.

So owning an electric car may not be as dumb as some people think.

That's a huge leap in logic to assume this hints at fuel stations being included in the game. Everything in the GTA games have been caricatures/parodies of real things in pop culture, so it's no big step that electric cars will be in the fleet of vehicles included in the game - especially in Rockstar's California wasteland.

Well I could not imagine them using a double sided dildo to kill someone either, but we had that in San Andreas lol

Micheals wife and daughter are probably liberal yuppies. So they want an electric car.

I'm gonna drive it to the desert and blow holes into with Trevor's unregistered guns.

Do you really want to sit through this?



No, don't skip it, watch it. Then when you're done, watch it again and again and again. Why? Because that is what that'll add to the game. It could take six years to run out and that wouldn't matter to me, because you still have to sit through that or lose your favorite car to the desert that everyone apparently loves running out of gas in.

Seriously, keep watching this video. Ask yourself if you really want this.

"But health and armor and ammo and stuff!"

And yet you want yet another annoying thing to keep track of on top of that and you want everyone else to deal with that extra annoying thing. I just don't get it. Sure, uninhibited fantasy can be boring, as dick valor told me, but fantasy that's too inhibited can be boring as well.

It sells me and you are always involved in these arguments involving fuel xD

They should have an electric police car variant so that they can creep up on you. That's about the only use other than getting driven into without any warning.

Yes I am. Because that video is what getting gas is like. And there's nothing stopping these people from doing desert survival challenges anyways. Just stop or wreck the car. That's it.

It's just sitting there and waiting for the tank to fill up. There's nothing fun about it. Yet people want me to have to do it. I've seen people argue against it even being optional. Because apparently I should be forced to role play because others wanted to role play. Sure, I could just play saints row, but it would have to be 2. I found 3 to be fun but not nearly as deep as 2.

I want another san andreas. On RAGE. And I can't just mod IV because I don't have IV PC because this is not a gaming PC. I want to enjoy planes and beaches and mansions and sports cars. But no, with some of these people it's either get virtual gas or kill aliens with mech suits. No middle ground. I don't want to give up on GTA just because someone else wanted virtual gas. I don't. That's why I fight. Because I don't want to play SR2 for the rest of my life.
