    there's a whole whack of GTA related news/videos etc trickling out over the next few days lets try to contain it to one thread (doesnt have to be this one, I dont care)

    We're going to need a GTA IV sub-forum soon enough. This will suffice until then.

    Wasn't pimpjuice an actual and hopefully failed drink brought out by a rapper like 10 years ago?

    I would very much enjoy a GTA IV sub forum. This game is going to be big and lots of questions are going to be asked.

    It'd be a nice thing to not have all that muddled in a single thread that not everybody will notice the small questions.

    Personally, I would get rid of that stagnant, pointless Biocock sub forum which has been about as lively as Stephen Hawking at a disco for the last 78 thousand years and replace it with GTA IV. Although I don't have a console and won't be playing this game until the PC release, it is at least a game that is sure to provide a lot more interest than some overhyped mongoloid dinosaur in a brass helmet.

    lol. I have bioshock, but I only posted one time in the bioshock 'forum'. I said, " i just got this game today this is pretty sweet'.

    And I never returned.

    I am going to see how well NYC is mapped and then plot my escape routes accordingly. This will be immediately followed by insane amounts of wanton violence. Should be a good night. :thumbs:

    I read every bit of the first link, something I normally wouldn't do. I'm not really a multi-player ... player, but it sounds insanely good.

    I think that I will spend my first day with the game just running around killing everything, experimenting with cars, etc. I may even take the day off for "sick" leave.

    Bah! If only the NUT strikes would happen on the 29th, instead of the 24th. I'd be a very happy man.

    Oh shit, my final Product Design coursework deadline is the 29th, which means I'll be free from coursework FOREVER come the 29th.

    ****ING YAS.

    Gonna pop in to school, hand it over (relunctently, I might add) then bee line straight to town for GTA and a Subway for breakfast.

    Nice.

    TheAntipop, you're still just in secondary edu right? Not university education, or?

    Uni scares me.

    I'm out of High School, just finishing Sixth Form which is like a college substitute on the High school grounds, then I'm doing a year of college art then on to Uni. Hopefully anyway.

    My study leave is so, so long - I'm so glad I'm going to have GTA to play.

    you people need to quit your crying ..I'd love to have 8 hours uninterupted game time like some of you seem to have on an almost daily basis ..if I'm lucky I get that once a year and I have to go to my friends cottage to do it (incidentily this weekned)

    gta4 will literally take me months to complete ..which probably wont happen because something will probably come out that takes me away from it ..hey look! Age of conan is out in may

    I'm not moaning, I'm happy I've got so much exam leave as I need to study A LOT. :p I'm just happy that I'll have something else to do because I'm not going to be doing constant 24 hour revision.

    All in all, though, in a day, I spend about 2 hours playing a game and that's not until 10pm. The rest of the day I'm at college, doing work or out on my bike.

    Not to derail the thread, but if you do what you really love, you won't have that problem.

    College (or Uni, whatever you want to call it) is a whole different beast in my eyes. I absolutely love what I'm doing, so I have no trouble doing all of the homework for it since I know it will help me.

    But then again, I am a games programmer :smoking: Sweetest job on the planet in my eyes.

    Most likely there will be and it will probably come out 6-8 months after. I am willing to gamble on this because I am probably going to sell my 360 before this game comes out. My hate for consoles is much stronger than any anticipation for this game. I am disgusted with consoles and am so ashamed I even bought the farkin thing. :hmph:

    I agree. I have ADD, and really, the best way to keep your attention is to be doing something you love because you become absorbed in it.

    I can't read something boring to save my life, but if I'm reading something interesting I don't have any problems paying attention.


    Sweet. 5000 posts. I am no longer a Metrocop. I have been promoted. Bitches.
