    What is this? Is it a Timer counting down until the trailer comes out?

    That's what it'd appear to be. Very interesting to see what the hell they're doing because I can't stand the same GTA3 engine and crap. I hear they're doing the top-down 2D or 3D perspective interface option. (This comming from a GTA 1 & 2 fan)

    yeah, I'm expecting something big. But I really don't like this franchise. Once I got tired of doing the missions, I found the game to be a half assed driving game, half assed shooter, half assed action game with half assed controls and a half assed camera.

    Well it should look nice at least since they're using the graphics engine from the Table Tennis game.

    And supposedly, it will not take place in the current GTA "universe".

    I was one of the people initially impressed by GTA III but, like you said, once you did *some* of the missions and realized the controls were spotty when you needed them accurate, along with the camera actin' funky and other things like that, usually players just ran around and killed pedestrians and picked up hookers. And lordy, that didn't get old fast, did it?

    I still put San Andreas in and screw around for a while once or twice a week. The bike jump glitch in particular is a ton of fun once you get it down.

    Hell, half the fun of these games stems from how poorly-made they really are.

    Here's hoping for one of the following in the upcoming game:
    a. Character customization -- you get to pick the race, sex, physical appearance etc of your character ala your average MMO.
    b. Return of the silent protagonist. Probably goes hand-in-hand with the first one...
    c. Takes place in the prohibition era with missions like rum running and radio stations that play campy getaway music.

    My bet's on none of these!

    Urgh, god no. Part of the appeal of the GTAs for me was that you were actually playing as a character, rather than a faceless, personality-less goon like Claude from 3.

    Playing Crackdown recently has reinvigorated my interest in the "sandbox" genre. I'm really looking forward to what Rockstar has in mind for this release.

    My only wish is that they abandon the "gangsta" shit. Gunning down cops and killing civilians is just plain pathetic and most of all...not fun.

    Couldn't agree more. You sound like someone who wasn't hugely enamoured with Saints Row, perhaps?

    If they don't want to abandon the gangland mentality, they could at least recontextualise it. There's a rumour GTA IV could be GTA London, only in hi-def... GTA+Ronnie+Reggie? Tell me that's not a winner.

    That was just making me think, what if it were a MMORPG. Toss it onto an online server and have everyone interacting and joining online gangs. I can see the media backlash on that.

    That's an interesting thought. And if there is one thing we know about Take Two and GTA specifically, it's that they love the media hate. It's free advertising. Even their board and corporate issues are getting publicity nowadays. They just can't seem to get any good PR. I wonder why?

    Whatever this winds up being, I fully expect it to be huge. Here's hoping it is not GTA London.

    I really hope they dont do this. I just don't like the whole self- cusotmization character. Not like in San Andreas mind you, but like Saints Row. I always liked playing a specific character who has a universal name and identity, no matter who owns the game. What I DO hope they fix is the horrible flying controls from San Andreas. Those were just ridiculous. Almost made me stop playing the game for good....

    On Friday or Saturday night, I wasn't sleeping very well, and was flipping through the channels at 2 in the morning. On cable tv (channel 36, FX) they had that same exact GTA IV counter on. I have no idea why it was on there, or how long it stayed on, but whatever. I haven't bothered with GTA since III/Vice City. We'll see what this one has to offer.

    Personally I hope that they make the city half or a quarter the size of Saint's Row but make it fully interactive. I'm sick of seeing buildings with doors that you can't open, I mean they might as well be blank boxes. If I want to go into someone's apartment and rob them I should be able to. Also how about being able to shoot out some windows on these buildings.
