"Like in Red Dead, triggering the mission is achieved by walking to a question mark on the mini-map, and this particular stranger is an A-list celeb called Lacy Jonas, hiding behind a trailer, nervously eyeing up paparazzi on the corner where the alleyway meets Vinewood Boulevard. Her request is simple: grab yourself a car, pick her up and zoom her past the waiting photographers before they can get her snapped."

sounds fun... i'll probably end up running her over.

Nothing much here that I already don't know. Sounds good though.

Most of the info here is repeated, but there are some new tidbits here from what I can see. Summary of new info below (bolded parts, as far as I know, are new) for those who don't want to read the whole thing):
  • Character-switching is handled by a weapon wheel that sits on the lower right corner of the screen. You hit up on the right stick to control Franklin, right to switch to Trevor, and left to control Michael.
  • Character special abilities can be activated by clicking L3.
  • Franklin starts at the bottom of the criminal ladder; repossessing cars for a dodgy Armenian named Simeon Yetaria.
  • Cash machines can be used to check the bank balances of the protagonists.
  • You can pick up hitchhikers to motor around the countryside with, before dropping them off at their ideal destination.
  • Playing as Michael - ATM's can be robbed via a mini-game, if we please.
  • Internet cafes are out. You instead can browse the web (including in-game social media) and watch video on your character’s mobile phone.

Watching video on the phone is cool. As for checking your balance, isn't the money listed on the HUD anyway?

Kind of glad to see internet Cafes out.

Seems silly to drive to one when I am sure our character has a smartphone. That way I can look at property listings on the fly!

Not according to the gameplay trailer - among other hints there is a mouse cursor. Unless of course this was on a personal laptop/PC.

This was very much the case in IV, where ATMs were completely useless, but I think they have had some added usefulness with the whole stock trading thing and whatnot.

"Character-switching is handled by a weapon wheel that sits on the lower right corner of the screen. You hit up on the right stick to control Franklin, right to switch to Trevor, and left to control Michael."

Do you press another button to bring up the character wheel though? In the gameplay video it looked seamless, but just pressing a direction on the right stick is weird because isn't the camera controlled with right stick? Weapon wheel left bumper/L1 and character wheel right bumper/R1 maybe?

I guess we would be able to. It is just that part of the preview/Q&A was specifically talking about Michael. That is unless, of course, robbing ATM's is one of the things that only Michael can do.

Houser says dating is unlikely to make a return, and internet cafes are out, too. Now, just like in real life, you can browse the web (including in-game social media) and watch video on your character’s mobile – accessed, as ever, by tapping up. Email and contacts also return as navigation options, and photos can be uploaded to the Social Club in this way, too.

But yeah, you could possibly be right about the protagonists being able to use personal computers/laptops at their own homes/safehouses in addition to being able to browse the internet on their mobile phones.

You can probably still use PCs. I think they're trying to say that you don't have to go to internet cafes to use them.

I like the idea of picking up hitch-hikers. It also mentiosn the size of the map is three times that of rdr so the countryside must be massive.

Even though I do think there will be internet cafe's/computers in the game, the place doesn't seem to have an interior.

Look at the textures. It's clearly blurred out, meaning you can't go in it.

Internet cafes are out but you still can use Michael's PC, he probably will have one in his house.

I don't get how L3 is the button for special powers. Does that mean L3 replaces the crouch button when playing michael/trevor and replaces the horn when driving with Franklin? That seems... silly. Imagine trying to crouch behind cover with michael, only to realise you've activated the slomo effect, then end up dying...

Then how will we be able to duck/crouch? That's always been the duck/crouch button.

Some tidbits I didn't know before:
  • L3 is used for special powers
  • Taxi instant travel feature is back
  • The tour bus ride around vinewood costs just $2
  • ATM machines can be robbed via a minigame
  • You can even pick up hitchhikers to motor around the countryside with, before dropping them off at their ideal destination (like taxi missions in previous GTAs)
