New GTA 5 details coming 2nd May, 5pm BST - what do you want

Postby Muppetman51 » 26 Apr 2013, 16:05

Is there anything as annoying as the phone from GTA4? I've just got another copy of 4 to try and finish it and the phone is killing me. It never shuts up, it takes you well out of the way at all the wrong times and it's the reason I got rid of 4 in the first place. Is there anything like this in 5?
Excuse me sir, but the pigs have refused to find any more truffles until you leave!

Do bullet wounds appear realistically like in Red Dead Redemption? And on a slightly less morbid note, do the three characters each have different animations for running, holding guns etc?

Rumours that the buildings are destructible. Like id you got into a plane and flew it into a building the building would become destroyed with a gaping hole where you parked your plane, is this true. I don't see how it could fit into the game, it would be awesome though. Also, what the combat system is like, has it improved form GTA IV. And more about what you can do outside of missions.

EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING aaaaand ...

EVERYTHING!!!!

But seriously, vehicle handling (4 seemed terrible due to Romans taxi being terrible, but was extremely fun to handle after a while I thought.) gun play, hand to hand combat, things to do on the side (games, collectables, properties), is money actually used. Plenty of other things but you can file those under "everything else".

I'd like the review to focus on the comparasin bewteen SA and IV. SA was great in what you could do, and IV not as much as there was far less content. Compearing it to SA would be interesting.
Also, focusing on the world and the detail within it, such as chracters and enviroment.

Get as many screenshots as you can. Climb Chiliad. Try and get the protagonist-switching screen. See what R* has been hiding from us on the map, speaking of which look at this and see how close it is to the real map. Just get as much as you can. Thanks.

I don't want hits, in this day and age we can stream our own stuff if we want stuff we know and like, I want it like IV where it gives you pretty obscure music and gets you interested in it rather than being all #1s or whatever. I know people didn't like that. but I loved the radio, especially Lazlow and that Judge guy. Can't wait.

A custom radio station which plays from yor iPod or phone would be great!
Before you tell me I can already do this through the dashboard, I am aware. However it ruins cutscenes and general dialogue, and it would be nice for console versions much like the PC version of GTA 4.

I thought the mobile was a very good feature in GTA 4, where silent mode was a welcome break from needy friends and girlfriends. Maybe making them less needy would be nice though...

A greater variety of weapons would be good, and access to air vehicles would be a welcome addition, as it was incredibly difficult to source a helicopter without cheats in GTA 4.

And finally, more indoor spaces such as supermarkets, shopping centres and clubs would also give GTA 5 a greater level of depth than the other games which were mostly restriced to the outdoors, excluding the odd burger shot and clothes shop.

I doubt this would happen unfortunately, due to the whole 911 thing...
As much Rockstar would appreciate the publicity, I doubt they would want every right leaning newspaper to accuse the game of allowing players the opportunity to recreate terrorist attacks.
GTA 4 lacked planes for this reason.

The observant gamer would have noticed the "Z!T" radio advert in GTA 4 (the mobile number for IDing the music on the radio) described having "washed up" celebrities answering the phones.

The person answering calls you made through the ingame phone was infact Lazlow!

On a side note, I would agree with not having just hits like in GTA 4.
I bought the Black Crowes Greatest Hits album on the back of 'Remedy' from Liberty Rock Radio.
