So extreme sports are extreme in this game.
Also, hipster conversation made me laugh like a maniac sitting alone at home in the middle of the night.

This game really kills my social life.

People complaining about graphics, lol. I'd take a shitty looking game over a pretty one any day if it's more fun to play.

I figured out my “fps” problem. Switched from the 50” Sammy dlp to the 42” Panasonic plasma. Besides the substantial ~100ms reduction in input lag, the plasma renders fast camera panning and motion much smoother than the dlp. Same resolution, same connection, and no annoying dejudder processing. I am a confounded by the differences, as I’ve never noticed such a disparity between these two displays over the years I’ve used them. I can’t logically explain the reason for the difference either. Wobulation or color wheel speed? Maybe. To make up for the size difference, I just moved the couch closer, much closer.

Lol at the random situations Trevor is in when you switch to him sometimes.

I didn't preorder, and still got a blimp. Woo.

They can help, but 50/50 I need to fix the damage they can do.
Might try that some day. Fresh copy should be here tomorrow. If I fix it I'll give the spare to a friend.

I'm on the fence with this game, Ive been playing it like crazy, but I remember having way more fun in vice city. It just seems to me like they stuck so much crap in this game that it affects the quality of everything. I mean it does almost everything okay but not anything great, outside of the main story.

I do think the main missions are hilarious, and thats the main reason I continue to play, stats show Im almost done with the game, and I dont think once I beat all the missions Ill continue to play, until they launch multiplayer.

After more time playing, I've lowered my initial rating from awesome to pretty good. There are a lot of things that make me wonder if they actually did testing on this game with people who weren't involved in the making of the game. So many things that could make the game more fun, than would have been easy to do, but they didn't. They also did away with some things that I loved in the older games. Car damage is worse (too hard to damage), you take body damage too easily, which is more realistic, but it takes away from the fun factor. Cops are too aggressive and will start a chase for virtually no reason, and will shoot you to death for crossing the street or looking at them wrong. Helicopters and motorcycles are awkward to control, cars are too fast. While being chased by the cops, even if the don't see you, they will turn around in the middle of the road for no reason to come right to you. So they do see you, but they don't, if you get what I'm saying. Police helicopters spawn in convenient locations to make your escape irritating. Cars are too heavy, and almost impossible to push, even with a big truck. A big truck in real life, or previous games would not be able to be blocked in by 2 cop cars. Now they get in front and behind and I'm stuck and I get shot to death. Almost none of the missions pay ****, and making money for me so far is slow and boring. Stories for the missions are kind of boring and flat.

I have more complaints to put into a bad, run on paragraph, but I can't think of them at the moment.

Gun fights are more cover based than in the past, which I'm OK with. And it seems way easier to lose the cops, also not a bad thing if you like to go on random rampages.

get out of the direct line of sight and hit an alley, or ditch the car for a roof/trash can/etc.

If it wan't so far I'd just say mail it to me for a weekend and I'd do it for a cup of coffee.

I also find it infuriating that the cops just shoot first. No arrest. Just kill. Oh, you bumps that lady. Death. They also somehow always know where I am. I can get out of "view" and hide in an ally, between walls, lights off, and all the cops on the map magically move my direction?

Also I started a Miata Turbo gang on the Rockstar Social club. I'm Xbox and not sure if other platforms can mix on the club, but F-it. Shoot me names to invite and if someone wants to be leader I will battle tummy sticks for command.

Also random find. Apparently I'm told this will give real discounts in game if linked to social club. Haven't tried yet.

Weird, I'm finding it much easier to evade the cops in V vs the previous versions of the game.

A few quick turns, bail out of the car, hide behind a trash can, etc.

Not sure how you manage that. If I bail out and hide behind a trash can, even when they aren't watching, they know exactly where to go to find me. It's like an adult playing hide and seek with a little kid. "Oh, where ever could you be, I don't see you hiding anywhere. THERE YOU ARE!"

I think losing the cops at 1 and 2 stars is about the same as IV, but 3 stars and up, the cops spawn in front of you, and know exactly where to find you. The only place I have found to escape them is in subway tunnels where they can't drive up to the entrance. You can watch them on the map all on top of your location, they are just too many levels up to reach you or see you.

Ive lost them at 5 stars by driving around in a field. they dont spawn in fields, so as long as its a big enough field, you are good to go.

In one mission you need to steal a garbage truck. I go jump in the truck and get a star. I drive around trying to lose the cops, but they're so much faster and it's impossible to wreck them, so they just keep ramming me. As they ram me, I go to 2 stars, then 3 stars. I keep driving. Finally try to jump out to get in another car and I'm instantly killed.

It basically comes down to, if you get a star when stealing a slow vehicle, then you might as well just kill yourself because there is no other alternative.

Best way I found to lose the cops is go off roading in the mountains. They will rarely keep up with you when you're up there.
