"we've toned down its sprawling nature in los Santos we compressed the city somewhat so it never felt dull, but everything is there, including those mental characters and moments you wouldn't find anywhere else"

No, I quoted what Houser said.

You quoted the art director.

They are both somewhat contradicting each other but I think you cannot take everything they say word-by-word. However, in this case, I would rather trust the art director for obvious reasons.

So, neither the observatory nor the Vinewood sign are shown on the blueprint map, correct?

What about GTA IV: EFLC? So far, we've seen a promo card in Red Dead Redemption (Game of The Year Edition) and now in L.A Noire. Is there another?

Was just about to ask the same thing. Problem is, I guess everybody here already has GTA IV & EFLC.

I wish they would release a screenshot of character switching in action. Like right at the top of the switch in the sky.

They'll complain well beyond September, trust me.

The point is that why the hell do people keep taking sh*tty pictures? This is 2013 where every god damn thing has a pretty decent camera on it. It's not hard to take a high quality photo.

I agree. Most phone cameras are better quality than this sh*t.

I think it looks enormous. Some people are just ungrateful and will complain no matter what. I mean, what would they prefer? A ridiculously big map that feels lifeless and empty? Nah, they'd still whine.

And to think that the city is only a small part of the map, and there will be huge areas of wilderness, mountains, lakes and small towns...man I can't wait to explore every inch of it. Only a little over three months to go! It's been a hell of a long journey.

im one of the few people thats in the middle. I dont think LS looks as huge as the impression i was given earlier in the year, but i dont think its tiny by any means. Im pretty satisfied with the map from what ive seen, not impressed or disappointed.

The Observatory isn't that close to the Vinewood sign

They're not too far away from each other.

Wait... I am super disorientated with the location of the Observatory now.

The Vinewood sign is what you've highlighted on the right, right?

..as per this shot:

http://www.rockstarg...ot/221/1280.jpg

But then how is that the observatory that you've highlighted on the left, given this shot:

http://www.rockstarg...ot/481/1280.jpg

Shouldn't the Vinewood sign be to the right?:

Here's another:

http://www.rockstarg...ot/561/1280.jpg

Sorry dude but I don't really get your confusion. The observatory is directly west of the Vinewood sign. In your first posted image, the observatory is to the left/west out of shot. On your second image, we are at the observatory and the Vinewood sign is to the left/east, out of shot, because we are facing in the opposite direction. In your third image, we are almost above the sign, looking west towards the observatory.

I speak for myself when I say I'm not bitching when stating my opinion that LS is too small and should have been bigger if its the only city. I'm still buying the game and im sure it will still be great.

If your not open to different opinions then it just makes you look like a mindless fanboy. People's opinions will differ and unless they are being as absurd as Zee, there's no need to call them whiners or ungrateful.

I respect your opinion, but I bet it will change when you actually play the game. Looking at heli shots over the city will inevitably make it look smaller. Imagine looking across the Alamo Sea at that huge mountain as a character in the game:

You would be a speck from this distance, and the mountain still looks huge. I'm sure at ground level, the sea will look much bigger as well.

I agree to a certain extent. Some people are merely stating their opinion, which is fine. But the vast majority unfortunately can't state their opinion without calling people out for not sharing their opinion. Which 9/10 times results in arguments, name calling and so forth. Which is very disruptive, but I think that goes without saying.

I understand that. But I wanted to set myself aside from the "winers"

@Suicide: All the images we have seen, coupled with the blueprint map really take away some of the ambiguity of the city size. I think it will be almost exactly as big as I expect it to be. Which is smaller than I hoped. But once again. If there are alot more interiors it will be much better.

There must only be 2 promos or R* is only putting these in 1 out of 1000 games. If they were putting them in every one of their prior releases, we'd have more by now.

GTA IV map wasn't really big after all. I don't think that this size is really "enough" for reproducing of Los Angeles. Besides, it's no wonder that people expected to see a larger city after specific presentation of Los Santos from Rockstar's side.

No offense or hard feelings intended.

It just bugs me. It bugs me that people are turning such a critical eye to this game before playing it. I think of lurking around here during the Great Drought and everyone clamoring for the tiniest shred of information. Now that we have it, I'm seeing a lot of complaints. I don't know, maybe that's a good thing. People wouldn't be critical if they weren't diehard GTA fans and just want the best possible experience.

I'll just go ahead and say it...my bad. I'm a mellow guy. Sometimes I say things and it comes out the wrong way.

I have to agree with Deffpony. I am not whining just stating my distaste for a city that is based off L.A even being close to the size of LC which is Based off of New York. LS should be the largest City R* ever made as dan said it is the largest city in the world Land area wise. I know some will say but we have the Country Side. L.S should not be punished with a smaller size do to the Country side. To take away from the mere size of L.A is taking away from its magic. Just my opinion, I hope I am wrong. I will be the first to apologize

Damnit, September hurry up so we can end this sh*t once and for all. I'm not gonna judge the size of the city until the game is in my system and I can get a feel for how big the city is. Rockstar don't owe me nothing and I don't owe them nothing, but the least I could do is take their word on this issue, if we can call it that.

I don't know I would actually rather take some countryside, as long as it's fun/unique as opposed to endless sprawls of bland, repetitive suburbia just for the sake off adding size to the city.

Some people have been complaining ever since GTA V was announced. Remember the complaints about how the Cheetah looked in the first bunch of screenshots?

Stop whining before you've played the game, man! You can't have an opinium about the size because you didn't play it yet. You just got a hunch

Man, people judge for no reason icon13.gif
