EDIT by Deffpony: This thread will be for myself and Omnifarious to answer your questions or take your suggestions in order to clarify some things for you regarding GTA V. Omni has the game already, I get it in the morning. There will be no spoilers, videos, or images.

For the straight forward answers we will post them next to the correlating question or request. Omni will post his findings in Green and I will post my in Orange.

For the elaborate questions we will give longer replies that will be linked to in the OP
 
Current Suggestions/Questions

  • Can police sirens be toggled? Yes, the sirens can be toggled by holding the "horn" button.
  • Is the map as big as R* said it was? I have yet to explore most of the map, and have only left the city once, I headed into the area above Vinewood as Trevor. The map feels huge so far, and it took a good long while to get out by Trevor via car from South LS.
  • How is the framerate? The framerate is stellar. It hasn't dropped once on me, much better than IV.
  • How are the texture? any pop ins? The textures look great, I haven't seen any pop ins yet. They're crisp and clear, especially during a clear sunny day. The game looks next gen for sure, yet shows some signs of age, like some of the ground textures can be a bit blurry depending on their scale. (Tiny rocks on the ground, little arrows on the road)
  • How's the draw distance? Massive, you can see the mountains from across the map, you can the the harbor in south LS from the Vinewood sign very clearly. There's no sh*tty blurry effect on the screen like there was in GTA IV.
  • How much depth is there to car modding? http://gtaforums.com...s/?p=1063296653
  • Is the Airport Enterable? Yes. (Note: You will receive a 3 star wanted level if you go onto the tarmac. It is unknown at this time if the wanted level can be subverted, I.e. getting a pilot's license, and being allowed onto the tarmac.)
  • Can and how do the characters flick people off?
  • Can you shoot rival gang members to start a gang war? I shot some Ballas, but it didn't start a turfwar/gang notoriety type of thing. That may be something for later in the story, like in San Andreas.
  • Is Union Station in the game?
  • Are there multiple types of firetrucks?
  • Vigilante/Paramedic Missions?
  • How does driving feel? http://gtaforums.com...s/?p=1063288423
  • Do cars instantly explode if their gas tank is shot? No, they will begin leaking fuel, and like in Hollywood, you can shoot the gas trail, which will ignite, meander its way back to its source, (the car) and then the car will blow up. Gives you some time to avoid the other wise insta-death of past GTA games.
  • How do the aiming mechanics feel?
  • Can you go prone?
  • Can we gamble at casinos/dogtracks?
  • Check the bumping into pedestrians issue?
  • Driving time across Los Santos?
  • Driving Time Around Map Perimeter?
  • Apache Helicopter? I have yet to encounter one, BUT I have seen the annihilator make a return, as well as the buzzard. There's advertisements in-game of military grade hardware, specifically, one appears to be a Russian Mi-something hind. Oh, and one in-game T.V. commercial shows off Apaches flying together. (Sorry about that slight leak Deff, I saw it while testing out the T.V. just now. Good chance they're in.) http://www.lifeinvad...k_cache_n_carry
  • How soon can you access aircraft?
  • Custom soundtracks for PS3?
  • What are the control schemes?
  • How is the melee combat? http://gtaforums.com...s/?p=1063288243
  • How bad is the gore. Descriptions? Dismemberment, blood stains. Huge splatters can appear on the wall behind a shotgun victim. Also, shotgun to the face = OH GOD WHERE'D HIS FACE GO?! I have yet to try this with sniper rifles.
  • Can you drift? Yes.
  • How is the vehicle damage? Varied. You can receive anything from a small paint scratch, to full body deformation, and tire removal. (Bump into another car, get a dent and a scrap, let a train hit you, or hitting a semi head on at a 100mph, will result in major body deformation, remember the swing set of death from GTA IV?)
  • What kinds of animals? So far, I've seen various species of dogs, cats, deer, cattle, birds, and goats. (I am still exploring, have yet to explore the water properly)
  • Can you have custom control schemes?
  • Do police shoot at 1 star? No, they will attempt to arrest you while on foot, and will chase you in vehicles if you get in one yourself. If you resist arrest long enough, you gain a two start wanted level. (Resisting arrest, I.e. being within police sight, without losing your wanted level for a certain amount of time, will spark them to use lethal force)
  • How diverse are the hairstyles?
  • How is motorcycle physics?
  • Can the music score be turned off?
  • Can you enter the prison?
  • Can you go diving from the start? You can certainly head to the beach, and dive in, but I've yet to encounter a scuba suit, so my adventures were short lived, the waters were murky,  I suspect it was because I didn't have a scuba mask. Lung capacity is also a trainable skill.
  • Is it easy to identify enterable buildings?
  • Time to cross the map via flight?
  • Are rv's enterable?
  • Can characters get stains and debri on them? Yes, both dirt and blood, as well as the "wet clothes" look from being in the water.
  • Does Michaels Family roam the house?
  • Can you put ped's in the trunk?
  • Can you hold peds hostage?
  • How's the ped A.I.? Surprisingly responsive. Run through a boardwalk full of people, and watch as they flinch, jump out of the way, curse you, brace for impact, realistically slid up and over your hood and land on their feet on the other side with a scared look on their face. You'd think you were really running over a board walk full of real people. So many types of reactions. Not just the usual, "AHHHHH" *Barrel roll out of way*
  • Animal A.I.? Ahh, this is a good one, I experimented with deer in the hills north of Vinewood, deer will sniff the air, and flick and turn their ears and tails like real life deer. They will rear their heads up if they hear something, they'll get spooked and run away if they spot you, and they even grunt and huff like real deer.
  • How are the animations? Do they look stiff? The animations will actually surprise you. I don't want to say much, but they look VERY life like. I can't believe the amount of detail the R* team have put into them. They're so natural and fluid looking, that I keep forgetting this is running on 7 year old hardware.
  • Are there hydraulics?
  • Can commercial planes be flown? I'm not sure yet, private jets for sure, and there's advertisements for bigger planes in-game. Also, Warstock shows a big cargo plane known as the "Titan" as part of their inventory. http://www.lifeinvad...k_cache_n_carry
  • Can you drive a train? Yes, you can also climb aboard it for a free ride around LS and the country side! (I climbed onto one of its empty carts, and walked around on it RDR style.)
  • If you crash a plane wing into a building does it break off? Yes, I can confirm, crashing into objects will result in lost plane parts. Like clipping a building with your left wing, will tear the wing off.
  • Is there basketball?
  • Can cop cars be modded?
  • Can police lights be toggled without sirens?
  • Silencer for Pistols? Yes.
  • Are there stealth attacks? Yes, (One example: I equipped a knife, and crouch walked up to the back side of a hooker, I was given a prompt for a stealth attack. Trevor stood up, and stabbed her in the neck.)
  • Can you toggle your seatbelt?
  • Can you park vehicles in the garage any way you like?
  • Is there snow in the mountains?
  • Can you smoke pot outside of the house?
  • Can you do BMX tricks?
  • Are tow trucks operational?
  • How is the concentration of peds? Varied, the country is sparse, as it would be, and the inner city is bustling with activity, the city really does feel "alive." If you don't have a wanted level, (Wanted levels cause there to be less NPCS around.) head to Vespuci beach, you'll see hundreds of NPCs on the beach. (Okay, maybe not hundreds but it's certainly congested)
  • Are cops strict on laws of the road?
  • Have you seen police arresting random NPCs? Yes, I had a gang member punch me in front of a cop to test this, he jumped out and arrested the gang member, and put him into the back of his squad, he then drove off with him in the back.
  • Is the camera centered for driving?
  • archiebunker, Dnero, KLLRDG and 11 others like this

Hey guys... couple weather related questions 
How does the weather affect vehicle handling? 
 
Also to AI cars loose control in the rain?  It is based on SoCal after all even a little drizzle turns the roads into a high speed bumper car disaster since nobody there knows how to drive in anything but sunny nice weather.
 
When stormy does the sea state get all choppy and difficult to handle boats or is it just the till shiny water gentle type rolling swell from IV?

I'd pretty much like to know about stealth in general. Is it a viable option for the entirety of certain missions, or is it that old "stealth in, loud out" trend that games force on you?

 

Thanks

The ESRB rating board said that there was the "rare occasion of dismemberment" in the game - have you seen anyone lose limbs / have their head cut/blown off? Or is that probably just in some cinematic?
