GTA IV tester fedback

Recommended Posts

Hey,

This might end up as a locked thread, or a pointless post, but seeing as we're so desperate for details, I thought I'd post my story.

 

I live in Lincoln, UK, location of a small Rockstar office pretty much dedicated to testing of Rockstar games. It's out on the industrial estate, opposite one of my friends accountancy offices, always people going in and out acording to him, blinds always shut tight, all the stuff you'd expect. Except... I was at a clubnight last night, and got talking to this guy, who's friend from back in college now works as a beta tester at the Rockstar office. As you'd guess, he gets asked loads about it, but can't give any information out for obvious reasons. The only feedback from him is basically confirming what most of us already think, and bear in mind this is coming from a guy who plays a lot of games, and has been playing GTA IV for probably quite a while. And it goes along the lines of saying that the game is incredible, it does the franchise absolute justice, no one who has liked a GTA game before will find it easy to be disapointed. Strong words.

 

Oh, and tomorrow is his last day of work before Rockstar give him a break before his next project. Which mean's that beta testing is over, which means the game is pretty much gold, and ready for retail...

 

Hope some of that was good,

L

I always take stuff like this with a pinch of salt, but if you're not just making this up then it's good news about testing being finished... roll on release day!

dosnt really look fake, but by your member start date, i wouldnt beleive it.

Why do so many people feel that someone's join date always has to effect the poster in what he says, just because they're "new"?

 

Whether or not anyone believes this, we all know the game is knowing to put everyone in awe. I don't care either way, but it kinda seems like you'd put more effort into making something up.

I can't remember why I registered back in '06, but I've been checking here every now and again for news and stuff. Looking forward to the new previews.

 

Agreed, it's only a tiny nugget of stuff, but it's nice to know what someone who's played the game extensivly honestly thinks, without any magazine pressure or anything.

Lincoln's like a more friendly Nottingham.

 

Yeah, if I was going to make something up I'd make it more interesting than this! This is just really good to know, and pretty much means the game isn't likely to be delayed again at all. I guess now it's just a matter of fixing a release date to avoid other games and let the promo get working. The friend-of-a-friend won't be involved in that side of things though. Still, lucky bastard, playing GTA IV for the last however many months! And he gets free stickers!

 

And I don't see what's wrong with me only registering two years ago...

It doesn't matter if he's lying or not we all can assume that the game will be released soon anyways due to the fact Q2 starts next month which is the release window.

Pretty useless info, even if it has the slightest bit of credibility.

You just re-worded exactly what I wanted to say in the first place!

 

Fine job. biggrin.gif

Call me gullible but I believe him. I find most who intend on lying in their posts go too over the top with the details which catches them out.

 

So anyway if the game is done in the testing stages then I can see the game going gold next month and hopefully finally release sometime in March.

It's interesting to see so many people out side of the US posting in these forums. I thought I might be a rare occurrence!

 

Good news though, it sounds legitimate, I mean, not many people would go this far, and not too far, to say a bit of false news. Beta testing would be over soon to keep the game on schedule anyway. They might have been testing the online functions too, since it is being tested in different continents, hope the lag isn't as bad as Saints Row, or Conker.
