Now I see. So some Random store leaked the game. No wonder I see pirated versions of several games on a lot of stores here before the original release date. I thought these pirated versions were always fake (you know what I mean) but it seems this isn't the case.

To prove this matter, not that anyone was disputing it, here is some photos i took at the time. These are for MW3, i couldn't find the Black Ops ones.

 

But interestingly, i took these photos on the 3rd November and the game wasn't released until the 17th November. So you can imagine how many copies we had in by release day. And if you know your job well, making it seem like you had a few copies come in short because you took them, wouldn't be hard.

Yeah, it's a shame because I love going into the V section and talk sense to all the idiots in there, but since yesterday it's a no-go area.

The GTAV section is filled with 10 year old kids.... I hope after they get the game they disappear

It won't be possible if that happens, they'l soon be back with their experiences on V and they're moments.

I had TWO major plotlines spoiled for me by that repeat offender 'Zidane'. Ever since, I try to avoid the V section like the clap. But sometimes I just can't help myself from venturing in there in the hope of seeing some actual positive contributions in the midst of all the negativity being thrown around by skillful trolls, or 5 year old Skyrim fanatics attacking the map size.

 

But yeah, as much as I appreciate the mods work in dealing with all that sh*te, they knew what the responsibilities would entail when signing up for the promotion.

 

Positive contributions and the V section don't go hand in hand. Steer well clear of it, and keep that up until you've completed the game for yourself.

 

 

I guess you're right. Shame really, as it used to be a pleasure engaging with others in speculating and analysing screens/videos/etc. Now it's just populated with minors who make thread upon thread about why this is not as good as that, map too small, driving looks sh*t, and on and on. It's actually kind of depressing.

I like to try and remain optimistic that that will be the case, but unfortunately, I only see it getting worse in the following weeks of post release. Nothing but whining about why Trevor's hair doesn't blow in the wind.

Why not just temp ban anyone who posts leaks until after release? Wouldn't that solve it?

This isn't the only website where people are spazzing out with leaked Vines and gifs. You can't browse 4chan's /v/ without seeing at least 5 GTA V topics on the front page, all with hundreds of replies and links to leaked info, people spamming pictures of the official guide, etc. I'm just glad there's a separate Video Game Generals board so I can discuss some games that are already out without cheapening my gameplay when I get V on PC.

The bright side is that we'll all be playing V in a couple of days.

 

I feel bad for mods who'll have to keep cleaning sh*t up after release during time they could've spent playing V though.

I'll be pretty glad when Monday comes, just so we don't have to bin 100 topics an hour about these leaks. Even the members themselves have given up listening to the rules, I know it was a mess previously, but most knew what was against the rules in the pinned 'no leaks' topic. Now they don't even care.

Speaking of which, I had my PM bombarded with leaked pics. I'm slowly starting to hate GTA V now.

GTA V doesn't post leaks. Douchebags post leaks.

I know but it doesn't help that they spam your inbox with them.

This is actually my first post since the forum 'upgrade' and I knew things would be a little chaotic in the V section what with V just a few days away but the level of disorder over there is enormous, just a minute ago I found myself watching a video a few minutes long which showed how you could set fire to fuel trails. It was beautiful by the way.

 

I then thought to myself... What the hell am I still doing here, its only a few hours until the real major spoilers start coming in so this will probably be my last pre-v post. I find it annoying how people watch these spoiler videos then complain about how Rockstar should f*ck themselves because they chose to click on a video knowing full well what it could contain. 

 

I'll see you all on the other side...

It seems to have calmed down a lot, at least the hundreds of "livestream here, yo" topics. I salute you mods. You people deserve medals for having to deal with this giant sh*tstorm.

EDIT: I just went back expecting the worst to be over... now I need to burn my eyes with one of those butane torch lighters. Still impressed with the mods, though. That's dedication, binning the 250 topics.

Sometimes I wish we could have a separate forum for GTA V, those little pricks start posting in Gen Chat when they have nothing to do.

The V-forum is destroyed. I can't find any of the "good, ol' members" and every thread is either a bitch-thread, a leak-thread or a bitching about the bitch-threads thread. Mods delete leak-threads after 20 minutes, and it seems like there no longer is rules in that section (everyone does what they want).

This is what I see when I think about how the mods have eventually lost the control over the V section.

I guess the V section belongs to the spoilering and leaking idiots now. Right now we can not fight them. They are just too many. Some day we'll win it back though.

I remember back in the day when the V-Forum was populated with topics like "Will it be GTA V or GTA [Insert City Here]".

 

Good times. Too bad it'll never be like that again.

Well the V section is a mess and so far I'm avoiding it. I'm going to eat my words and say I miss the days where we were having fun and speculating. Now every topic is: I have the game ask me questions, the game looks like sh*t, the driving is great, the driving is sh*t, stop complaining, what is going on, et cetera. Geez. :(

Somehow even while moseying through the five section I have still not seen any leaks. Although that's probably because instead of stalking these forums I have been playing Red Dead Redemption. Maybe it was more of a blessing when my Xbox died a few months ago and took all my save-games with it. Especially since I am now able to concentrate on the story instead of being wowed by the incredible detail. Anyway i'm looking forward to V I just hope it ships in time so that I get it on or before the 17th.Don't worry I will be too busy playing the game to leak anything and I respect my fellow forumers rights to not be spoiled by some jerk who gets his laughs by making someone waste their hard earned money on something that they have waited years for.
