For those that have watched the streams, everything points to meeting expectations

I'm currently watching a guy on a stream try to get a dog thats playing fetch hit by a passing car.
I think just the possibility of that will make me pick this game up.

EDIT: HE DID IT! and now im sad. Chops a tough little dog though.

So, I preordered GTA along with two other games from FS. I go on their to check my order status last night, and my order doesn't exist ANYWHERE. That is wonderful news.... :

I know the order went through back in June as I got the "Thank you for your order" blah blah. So now, who the hell knows IF I have a PO from FS, and it's probably sold out everywhere here. I'm gonna go this morning and PO in store at Best Buy, if that fails, does Walmart do preorders in Canada, guys?

Anyone ever pre-order off of EBGames.ca?

I did my CE way back as my local store ran out, I'm just wondering roughly when I should be recieving it so I can plan my days off of work!

Is it possible to join more than one crew?
Wouldn't mind joining up with HF boards, but would also like to have one with friends.

Waiting for Amazon to ship me the game tomorrow. Love Amazon's release day shipping. Since I work, it will be just sent to me at home and play it when I get back. If I didn't have a job, I might go back for Gamestop or other places. Not sure though.

Unless you live near their warehouse, you probably won't get it Day 1. They're shipping it out today, using Purolator (Basically Canada Post), so don't expect it tomorrow. You also may have to pick it up at Purolator yourself if you're not at home.

I've pre-ordered over 50 games from EB Games online and I always receive them on release day.

Its worth your time to watch Adam Sesslers review of GTA V on Rev3. Really well done.

Im happy to see such high scores. (Such ridiculously high scores lol). I knew there was no way it could flop, but there was still a part of me that was slightly worried a game of this magnitude wouldnt live up to the hype. Glad to hear that it has.

"Don't Install Grand Theft Auto V's Xbox 360 "Play" Disc"

Quote:
Rockstar has advised Xbox 360 owners not to install Grand Theft Auto V's play disc, as it'll negatively impact performance.

The Rockstar Support twitter explains, "For optimal performance, we recommend not installing that disc. We will have more info on our Support Site at launch."

And here come the PC police.

From gamespot

http://uk.gamespot.com/grand-theft-a...eview-6414475/

-Or perhaps you dive right into the game’s story problems, or its serious issues with women.
-GTA V is a complicated and fascinating game, one that fumbles here and there and has an unnecessary strain of misogynistic nastiness running through it.
-[...] casts his reservations aside to help him take degrading photos of a female celebrity.
-These moments of hypocrisy and inconsistency diminish the otherwise strong characters;
-Thankfully, the missions are frequently incredible, which makes it a bit easier to overlook [...] the mixed political messages
On a less positive note, it’s deeply frustrating that [...] GTA V has little room for women except to portray them as strippers, prostitutes, long-suffering wives, humorless girlfriends and goofy, new-age feminists we’re meant to laugh at.
-Characters constantly spout lines that glorify male sexuality while demeaning women, and the billboards and radio stations of the world reinforce this misogyny, with ads that equate manhood with sleek sports cars while encouraging women to purchase a fragrance that will make them “smell like a *****.”
With nothing in the narrative to underscore how insane and wrong this is, all the game does is reinforce and celebrate sexism.
Yes, these are exaggerations of misogynistic undercurrents in our own society, but not satirical ones.
-GTA V is an imperfect game [...] inconsistent character behavior, muddled political messages and rampant misogyny.
-Your time in Los Santos may leave you with a few psychological scars

Jesus christ. These characters are bad people and treat women badly. These are fictional characters who act out that way. It is a satricial look on our culture and society.

Yeah I saw that too...

These people are supposed to act like actual people, not a ****ing moral compass. Also, this is a GTA game, where you kill, maim and so on for pleasure, but demeaning women goes too far... what?
