The Movies (PC) - Video Review

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



FYI, I would be getting the PC version of the game just for the editor. I wouldn't "play" it in the same sense as I would on Xbox. It would be my own little studio. Hey, did you ever get into The Movies PC game where you could run a studio and film whatever you wanted and edit it later? I was so into that game. I miss working with that. The Movies community was fun to be a part of as we would get other people to do voice acting and I'd do the same for whoever needed a role filled.

I didn't have that (always had Macs) but I remember toying with those so-called "cartoon creators" and never really being impressed with them.  I get tied up in little details that those games really don't allow you to get into.  Having said that, I DID try to make a whole animated movie using Kid Pix Studio to make the individual cels.  With NO stylus or scanner, all with the mouse.  I miss having that insane level of determination.

So, a few days ago, GTA released another holiday themed DLC pack which included new weapons to go along with new Clothes, Mask, Scarves, Shoes, etc...all related to Christmas. Santa and Elf costumes, Santa masks, elf shows. You get the idea. Well, along with that, it was also stated that it would snow in the game environment but issued a warning that snowfall is very, very rare and was random. Anyway, after a few days of playing and waiting for the snow to come, I just ended up forgetting about it all together thinking that it would most likely happen on Xmas day.

A few hours ago I was in the middle of doing one of my contract missions at night time and half way through it.......it started to snow and is was frickin' awesome. I was driving to my next location when it hit, the snow blanketing everything in pure white and it gave me chills. It was surreal to witness it happening in real time. One of the other bonus perks of the DLC pack was that my condo has a Xmas tree with presents now as well as huge Christmas tree in the downtown plaza. Went there during the day as well as at night to see it with the lights. But the best perk of it all is that with snow comes.....snowball fights. Yup, you can now have snowball fights with your friends or anyone you want which was very fun to do as silly as this all sounds. They had the snow option last Christmas, so I hear. I didn't get to experience it because they were having server issues, so I chose to sit it all out until the online play was 100% fixed.

So, I have kinda been burned out playing GTA V, waiting for the Bank Heist DLC to come out (2 years after they said it would come out). Sigh. You can imagine how much you can play the same missions over and over before you just get bored. With no new stuff to do within the game, I decided to bust out GTA IV. It has been at least 5-6 years since I last fired this up on the console, so you can imagine my shock at how starteling it was to see on my 50 Inch Vizio TV. It looks totally different from what I was accustomed to on my other TV. But that wasn't the most shocking thing to discover. No, it was playing the game that showed just how clunky it is compared to GTA V. Sh*t, we are talking Black and White here. The driving mechanics are awful and the button controls are all over the place. It just made me appreciate GTA V all the more. You gotta remember, even though I hadn't played GTA IV in years, I still considered it to be one of the greatest technical marvels in video gaming history. After today.....not so much. No, that honor goes to GTA V for sure as it sent me running back to the game immediately afterwards. I didn't play more than 10 minutes of GTA IV before bailing on it.

So, today is THE DAY. After a year and a half of promises from Rockstar Games, the Heist Pack was finally released this morning and guess what....YA CAN'T PLAY!!! I'm guessing that it's a server issue. With the entire world (not an overstatement), their servers are being overloaded and people just can't get in. I managed to play the 'Set up' portion of the Fleece Job. Beyond that, I can't get past this, even after 'passing' the job. Sigh.

I finished the Prison Break Heist last night and it was hella awesome. Very fun. Currently in the middle of the The Humane Labs Raid Heist, which is even better than the last one. Well, I haven't gotten the the Heist itself for this one. Still working on the setup portion of the job. Trying to steal a Harrier Jet from an aircraft carrier. It's proving to be problematic as I'm being paired up with the dumbest players online. They have no clue about clearing a section before moving on. They have it in their heads that they can just run and gun their way through it. Ya can't!!

Gawd, this game becomes an "event" for me even when it's not called upon. So, last night my disc was suddenly stopping mid-game and kicking me back to the Xbox Dashboard. Every time I would try to load the game, I would get an error message saying the disc was 'unreadable'. After cleaning it a few times to no avail, I noticed that there was a crack on the inner ring. The crack was the tiniest hair into the edge of where the information is stored. It was enough that it f*cked it all up and made it unplayable. F*CK! So, I had to hit eBay and search in vain for another copy. Only problem is that I wasn't going to pay anything more than $20 for it. I didn't need the bonus DLC disc which I have, as well as the case and the map. Just needed to find someone that was willing to sell the 'Play Disc'. After 30 minutes I locked in on a seller and convinced them to sell it to me as a Buy It Now option from their 7 day auction. I just do not have the patience to wait that long to get back into the Heist DLC I waited 1.5 years for. So, got the disc for 10 bucks and they shipped it out this morning. Probably won't see it arrive here before Wednesday. It's certainly better than waiting 2 whole weeks, that's for sure. I usually work and give myself little breaks to play some GTA throughout the day. Today was f*cking boring being without it!!! Some people smoke on their breaks, I play GTA. Ack!!  ;D

I'm still trying to figure out how the crack even came into existence. I handle all my stuff with kid gloves on the off chance I sell on eBay.

UPDATE:

When I got my replacement disc back a few weeks ago, I made up for lost time that I wasn't playing by trying to cram in all the Heists at once. Yeah, I finished them all a while back but the thing is, I'm still replaying as many as I can because each Heist has different jobs. So, you get to see and play it from a different point of view which keeps things interesting. I love it. Rumor has it there are suppose to be 3 new Heist in the future. I would love to see those, but I'm not holding my breath. I think it's just more fan-talk of wanting more then something that is actually coming to us.

GTA V - Introducing The Rockstar Editor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxqZFp50YmA

THIS is why I'm getting the PC version of the game!!! This thing looks to have all the bells and whistles I wanted and more. I didn't think they would have a bunch of other stuff that gets mentioned here and now that it's a fact, I can't see myself without them. One thing though, I definitely need to upgrade my System Specs as my current PC won't be able to accommodate the requirements. I heard that the PC version is coming with something like 17 disc. What the f*ck!!!!!

GTA 5 PC Editor First Look - IGN Plays

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


I was not expecting to get any kind of walk-through or tutorial for the Editor this fast. This is a nice surprise. The editor itself looks great. Can't wait to get my hands on this. What's really great about this is that the game-play, animation within the game itself offers so much, especially gun-play, explosions and fast cars. This will allow me to expand my writing to incorporate all that and more. Usually when I'm writing for stuff I do with my friends, it has to be "budget" friendly. By that I mean I can't write elaborate stuff that I can't film live. So, I can now write in a broader sense knowing full well that I can tell my story within the GTA world. I'm very stoked about this.

I saw this yesterday and yes, I agree with this list 100%. With that said, rumor has it that GTA 6 will return to Miami. Not etched in stone, but I would like to see this happen because I want to see that city with the current-gen game engine and by the time it comes out, it will be next-gen which would be mind blowing.

GTA 5 NaturalVision Graphics Mod

This is slick. Mind. Blown. The mods that people have been creating for GTA V still amazes me. One step closer to "photo-realistic" game play.
