Actually interested in seeing some walkthroughs, and I'm usually not that guy.  It's just that this all looks so madcap brilliant.

BTW, while I did see that one of the girls is modeled after Kate Upton, I can't help but see a resemblance between Michael and DeNiro.

I wonder, actually, are you thinking of Miami Vice as you're playing this.  Obviously I kept thinking "Heat" when the heists come up, but since MV is still fresh in your memory, is it scratching that itch the movie didn't?

Well, the game really doesn't scream Miami Vice. It's basically a HD version of GTA San Andreas as it's in the same city. With that said, the radio stations I have been listening to in-game have been giving me mad flashback to GTA Vice City, which of course was modeled after Miami Vice, even though the songs themselves are not entirely 80's tracks.

FYI, if you intend to do walk through's, you should definitely check out game reviews of both Vice City and San Andreas to put GTA V into context. While you're at it, check out the reviews for GTA IV as well.

So, the character of Jimmy is getting his spot in the story now (Bike race on boardwalk) and the voice is unmistakably Jonah Hill. The character model looks like him as well, but I don't know 100% if it is indeed him. It sure sounds like him though., Funny character. Others are saying that it's Danny Tamberelli who is doing the voice. I find it odd that iMDB has both Jonah and Danny as the voice. Make up you mind!

I just got chills listening to Def Leppard's Photograph driving through "Hollywood" which is something that I use to do back in the day. Deja Vu. Other great songs hitting the radio by Bob Segar, Robert Plant and Hall & Oates. There are a total of 15 stations I think, each with a different genre and each station has tons of different songs and artist. Gonna take time to get through them all. A couple of stations are also "Talk Radio", which I find to be funny and a nice change of pace from music 24/7.

Just completed my first heist (The Jewelry Store). It was fun, especially escaping the cops through the underground Pipe/Tunnel system leading out to the LA River (aka 'Thunder Road as seen in the movie Grease). Very cool. Also cool was the song that I heard on the radio just prior to this was Queen's Radio Gaga. I LOVE this station!!

Trevor just popped up now. Finally! Now I get to see just how NUTS this guy really is. It was kinda cool seeing Johnny from the Lost and the Damned from GTA IV also pop up in a cut scene.

Trevor IS CRAZY!!! The 'Trevor Rampage' mission took me a few times to nail. All the baddies were coming at me from every single direction. After that moment, when he hops into the car, The Doobie Brothers start playing on the radio and Trevor lets out a disgusted 'aaarrrggh', complaining about this being the wrong music and then promptly changing the channel himself. I couldn't help but laugh thinking of how Mac reacts every time he hears Michael McDonald. Hahahahahahaha. Awesome!

Kate Upton GTA V Comparison



I forgot to post the artwork for GTA V. Ack! Anyway, Neumatic did mention the Kate Upton Image. Speculation is that its actually Shelby Welinder that was the inspiration, while others believe it to be Alexis Texas, but there has been no confirmation one way or the other. You tell me what you guys thing. Anyway, they have the Art Poster for sale as well as a Display Box which is what I'm actually pursuing on eBay for a decent price. I love the image and most likely will get the One-Sheet for it as well.

Haha. Trevor just met up with the guy collecting signatures to pass a bill on legalization. Sure enough, he gives Trevor a hit of the "good stuff" which brings on a hallucination of killer clowns. What's kind of ironic is that the Saints Row series has been labeled a GTA clone, but ramp it up with over the top visuals. Now it looks like GTA is swiping from Saints Row. Who would have ever guessed that would happen.

Prior to this mission, I had Franklin meet up with he same guy and he took a hit but nothing happened. I drove off thinking that the hallucination would come delayed. Nothing happened. Hmmm.... The torture scene where Trevor inflicts the pain on some hostage was a bit unsettling.

Trevor's Rampage Mission against the Army was INSANE and very hard. Took me 5-6 times to finally complete it. Hands are sore from clenching the controller so hard. Ouch!! There's nothing quite like blowing up Army Tanks left and right with just a rocket launcher and exposed with no protection whatsoever.

Now I've seen EVERYTHING! This isn't your typical GTA game. Never thought I see the day that there would be Chimpanzees circling Michael, only to be abducted by Aliens onto their UFO. Insanely funny. Love it!. There have been a ton of great dialogue scenes as well as the story that is unfolding. Gotta get back to the game now.........
