Getting GTA:SA tonight?
Who knows maybe some have it already even but probably not by "ethical" means.

My Gamestop is supposed to be going to get it directly from the airport at around 5pm tonight and should have it in the store by 7pm. Plan on buying it then otherwise I'll be camping out at Walmart tonight at midnight :)

the_dudefather Oct 25th, 2004 01:21 PM

im going down with my flatmate to game and getting it on midnight, thurday.

i cant wait until black lawers attack this game for being racist

DamnthatDavid Oct 25th, 2004 01:52 PM

Yeah, Gamestop always does that.

Anonymous Oct 25th, 2004 01:52 PM

Meh. I'll probably play it and enjoy it, but it doesn't look like they've changed/improved enough things to warrant a midnight purchase.

Sam Oct 25th, 2004 01:53 PM

Are they going to make an Xbox version?

HickMan Oct 25th, 2004 01:56 PM

I hear-talk they will, but it won't come out till way later like they did with Vice City and the other one :rolleyes

timrpgland Oct 25th, 2004 02:20 PM

Boogie, there are plenty of changes in this one. The massive size alone is worth it but there are quite a few more gameplay additions. More than from GTA3-VC.

Anonymous Oct 25th, 2004 02:26 PM

Damn you, Tim, you were supposed to name a bunch of 'em here so that I wouldn't have to go a'lookin' for them meself!

Ant10708 Oct 25th, 2004 02:29 PM

It is coming to PC soon after the Playstation release. And on the poster I saw of the game in EB it had the Xbox symbol next to playstations, so maybe

adeptninja Oct 25th, 2004 02:55 PM

I preordered it but im not waiting outside till midnight to get it. I'll wait till tuesday if they dont have it when I go there :/

timrpgland Oct 25th, 2004 03:07 PM

Yeah I was lazy earlier. To name some:

Size (5 times larger than Vice City)
Swimming (woohoo)
Hair Cuts
More transportation
More fighting styles
More customization on cars
New skills like stealth (yeahooo)
Food system (get fat)
Bike tricks
Gym workouts (get buff)
Robbery (rob people's houses)
New audio technology (more specifically, realistic contextual audio distortions, like when you are listening to a conversation through a wall or driving through a tunnel)
More music (all from the 90's)
Cops can now climb onto your car
35-50% more polygons than from previous GTA games
New lightning system (sets different moods and makes the visuals more impressive)

Drev Oct 25th, 2004 03:09 PM

Does this game have place people in it? :)

Drev Oct 25th, 2004 03:09 PM

How the hell did I mess up the word black with place? >:

adeptninja Oct 25th, 2004 03:22 PM

update: nope i am getting it tonight you can get it at 7pm, woOt.
(call the place you pre ordered they might have it in today)

MetalMilitia Oct 25th, 2004 03:41 PM

I heard that SA had ragdoll physics, is that true?
But that might just be on the PC version.

timrpgland Oct 25th, 2004 03:45 PM

some more info after some early reviews

Co-Op Mode - 2 player rampages: either in a car or on foot. The screen is not split. There are also many other two player features, presumably gambling games and the minigames basketball and pool.

You must spray over a possible 100 other opposing gang tags around the cities with your own gang sign and a spraypaint can, for a part of the 100%
Oysters are the equivalent of the underwater hidden package, find them all for a reward
Horseshoes also need to be found, (speculation: maybe the new hidden package)?
Full radio listings, to be posted shortly
The addition of girlfriends in the game, who'll you'll have to please to get something in return
There is dancing in the game, DDR style, which is used to impress dates
You learn to parachute (either from a plane or base-jumping) from a flight school
There are hovercrafts, and even a forklift
Play poker, craps, blackjack, wheel of fortune, or slots

Co-Op Mode - 2 player rampages
:O :love

timrpgland Oct 25th, 2004 04:03 PM

Zero - David Cross

Mad Melvin Oct 25th, 2004 04:05 PM

Samuel L. Jackson? Peter Fonda? Chris Penn? James Woods? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! :eek

I lost bladder control, when reading about the features and the voice actors. I want this game so badly. :domo

timrpgland Oct 25th, 2004 04:39 PM

Yeah the voice list is pretty impressive but they usually have some good voice talents. Getting Ray Liotta for VC was awesome. Carl Johnson is supposed to be the main character so hopefully this Young Maylay is good.

GADZOOKS Oct 25th, 2004 04:44 PM

And andy dick is doing a gardening show on the talk radio thing.

I'm getting mine tomarrow.

As for ragdoll physics I heard they are using somethign called impact animation, which is what they used in Manhunt, some people say its the same thing I don't really know.

Another fact: you can steal any aircraft now (including commerical airliners) And you can parachute out of them (after taking a flying school thing). You can also hijack trains I believe.

Matt Harty Oct 25th, 2004 04:45 PM

So is this Playstation exclusive?

GADZOOKS Oct 25th, 2004 04:56 PM

The PC version comes out next year, sony has it as an exclusive until then, so if there was an Xbox, it wont be until the PC one comes out.

the_dudefather Oct 25th, 2004 05:07 PM

cant wait for pc, nicer graphics and custom mp3 station :)

ArrowX Oct 25th, 2004 05:49 PM

In one of my Xbox magazines it sait that an Xbox version would be comming out sometime before Chrismas.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 09:14 PM.
