A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.

While the little kids state that the free updates being made aren't worth the trouble, I think they forgot that at any time Rockstar could charge money for it. Like other companies.. The fury I bet would be amazing.

Can anyone for the love of god create a mammoth tank mod?

The model for the X66 version from Renegade are everywhere to find.

Its depressing that there isnt a double barreled tank or a Halo scorpion tank mod for this game.

Wow... how long where they working on GTA V Online? It looks like they didn't even bother to test it all out. Terrible design decisions for keeping a match going (abrupt restarts when one of the members of the "teams" are killed, and no way to change teams). why even bloody have teams then! why why have unskippable cutscenes in multiplayer? Do they not know what a veto is? When atleast half the players veto a cutscene then it should end.

They should have designed teams in a way where other groups of matchmaking people can join 'maps in progress' as the other teams, and finish a different objective of that server. If one team dies, it won't end the map instead they will just respawn at the beginning with their main car/truck/motocycle spawned just outside with all the mission related NPC's back to where they where before. If one team finishes their objective (they get credited for it) and they can choose to rejoin the server and play as one of the other teams (if they are still available), then servers only end or do a clean restart when all objectives are completed. A dynamic world and no frustration of abrupt restarts.

PC Master Race Release Update It functions well, the few heists I've played are damn good, and I can only assume singleplayer is not much less interesting. After all this time... at least the game is what it ought to be for once. ------------------------------------------------- I detonate this ratings bomb in the name of the PC Master Race, HD Textures, and SSAO! Down with the dumbass at Rockstar who denies PC such greatness! LET NONE SURVIVE OUR GLORIOUS WRATH! DOWN WITH THE HERETICS! DETONATE…
