Regarding the multiplayer part of the game where a player can jump into your game and start hacking you: is any random person allowed to do this at any time or is it just friends? Do you have to set your game to a public setting for this to happen?

I have a feeling you'll be able to choose between public or locked down to friends list. You can also turn online interactions completely off, and the game won't let you be invaded while doing main missions.

Loved GTA IV driving, GTA V not so much.

Yes, they made the driving in V too easy and arcade style. Took some time to learn the driving in IV, but once mastered it was amazing. I am still playing IV from time to time just to drive around and do crazy jumps. Realistic driving mod on PC makes it even better.

There were a lot of complaints about GTA IV's driving mechanics and that it felt too realistic.

I don't understand Ubisoft's obsession with making everything interact-able glow and pulse. Shit is annoying, I hope we can turn it off.

The driving was far from bad but felt like a downgrade after GTA4 to me. On top of that they botched the destruction and damage model. Probably hardware limitations as they improved the engine so much in other areas.

Proxy would probably work, but make sure the key is region free. Otherwise, you'll need to use a VPN to run the game every time, which is a hassle.

GetGamesGo
is offering it for 44.99 if you'd prefer a less shady site, however I've gotten keys from those kinda sites before without a hassle.

Do you get a product key when buying from that site?

WHAT

The destruction was great. It took more for the cars to get fucked up but they deformed way more than they did in GTA IV. And it actually affected the driving physics

Yea, emailed closer to launch

What about if you buy it from GameFly?

When I go to checkout it has the Estimated Download as 5/27/14 at 10:00 AM PDT. Is this normal of GameFly? Has anyone bought from GameFly before? Will they give you a product key once you make the purchase or do you have to wait until the specified time?

That's a really great stream, I actually enjoyed watching it and I could see he was trying to please his viewers by altering the camera angles to give us a better view. I also saw him take a number screenshots during the rain at night where the game looks its best.

I just don't understand why they couldn't manage 1080p. Could it be the wind system that's eating up resources?

I found it to be decent. I love the random script npc has. Like a few minutes into the video the player walks to a patch of Gras and you see a kid npc humming and the dad npc plays the guitar and the mom npc encouraging the kid

edit...actually I don't think that's a kid lmao she's drinking a beer haha


Hack me if I'm late.

Can't agree with this. Here is an in-depth comparison. Damage in IV can also affect the handling and speed by the way.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQQu_aiEU0w

It was way more satisfying to crumple cars until they stalled in GTAIV. GTAV still had a good damage model, but it took a lot more to get it to show and felt much more stiff as a result. Plus I hated that cars would randomly explode if you landed wrong coming off a jump.

Watch_Dogs vehicle damage is poor, but ultimately that won't make or break the game. Sleeping Dogs also had meh damage modeling and I enjoyed that more than any other open world title last gen.

Looks like it, it's redeemed through uPlay though which isn't ideal.

Yeah, I just noticed that as well, and it's made my decision harder. I understand that Steam will just launch uPlay and start the game, but I like having all my games in the Steam library.

if you want to get WD on steam, the only place you will get it is on steam itself or via traders (has risk of getting scammed)

i also bought it on steam despite knowing that i could probably save $20 or more from other sites just because i wanted it on steam

Dumping uncompressed screens captured from a modded ps3 with a plugin. Both night and day screens.

Few things. Driving is boring other then the bike. Extremely forgiving and lame even more so then gta5. Look how much give they give you for brushing up against a car so you don't run into the back of it.


Damage modeling is just parts coming off mostly like gta3. You can view the screens below to see it.

I think it looks awful... but i thought gta 5 did as well so that's just my opinion.

It only appears when you take out your phone I think.

Nah, it does it to bridges and gates even when the profiler isn't out.

On another note, those ps3 shots look cool. The game looked like butt on last-gen in those streams, but those show you can't judge graphics from compressed videos. Still won't stop some people though

That's because handling and how much damage you car get is based on the character skill. But like many other I still prefer the handling in IV

Good to see some love for GTA4 in this thread. The campaign was kind of shitty but the city and physics are still amazing today. Especially with the insane LOD and draw distance of the PC version.

Looking at this, cockpit view is probably the way to go for this game. Looks way better than 3rd person view in terms of handling.

Ps3 version doesn't have a cockpit view lol.

That sucks. And the first image you posted is pretty bad. They shouldn't cheat on the hitbox of the car just to make it easy for bad drivers. IGN guy still couldn't drive though. "I don't care about driving in open world games"....

While the collision detection seems quite forgiving the overall game looks alright for a ps3 game. How does it feel in motion?

Is there no PC streams/copies in the wild yet so we can get a good comparison? Seems lot's of people have the console game and are streaming but nothing regarding the PC version!

Edit: I'm not actually getting it on PC as my mates on ps4 want to have a blast with me on it but I'm just curious to how it holds up

There's definitely a difference but it would be nice to compare when the sun is setting in the same position.

no point, it's clear the volumetric lighting is gone, subsurface scatter on the ears gone, volumetric smoke/steam effects gone, wind toned down, overall world proportions are changed (more game like/less realistic)

Yeah differences are obvious but, its not quite WD looks like a PS2 game lol (360&PS3)
