    Thank you Nathan. Watching the other two go back and forth about whatever the fuck they were going on about was painful.

    Can you quick save while driving? I selected the app on my phone but got no confirmation. I would normally just fire up the ps3 again but it keeps freezing. Might need a new fan.

    EDIT* The answer appears to be "no." Or maybe they just won't let you quick save during missions.

    After doing a bit of browsing it appears that a TON of people are having the same problem as me (the game randomly freezes). The responses from Rockstar have been a joke thus far. I'm going to be pissed if they don't develop a patch for this.

    what platform are you playing on? and if xbox... did you install the play disc? Cause I've read a lot about the game freezing on people who installed the play disc as well as the installation disc...

    Ya spiggums is right. If you are playing on xbox you should not install the second disc. I had the same problem with the game freezing. If it continues to freeze uninstall the first disc and re install it. That fixed it for me

    What.The.Fuck? You install the install disc, and play the play disc. Are you guys fucking kidding? I installed the install disc on xbox. I've been playing the play disc. Over %50 complete with the game, and no freezing yet. Does this help?

    I'm pretty sure you can quick save while driving, but only after your current mission has been completed, and the "Mission Passed/ Failed" message pops up. Jesus you guys...

    That's good to hear. I figured it was something like that. The way the achievements are set up in GTA V, I expect the online portion of the game to be huge.

    GTA Online will be online October first, as previously mentioned. I'm hoping that GTA Online is the other half/ three-quarters of the game that's missing in GTA V, because this game is pretty short/ small.

    If you're interested in GTA online pre-launch:

    Everyone making a custom character sounds pretty special, but I could be fooling myself.

    I got up to around 5 million cookies per second at work and left it running overnight...I just want to see how much more I can go in the morning and then I'm quitting (famous last words)

    If the gaming hasn't already been awesome enough this year...we're about to start into what could be the best month yet....Rain (PS3 exclusive) hits Oct 1, Beyond: Two Souls (PS3 exclusive, and the one game I'm so fucking excited about) hits Oct. 8, then Arkham Origins hits at the end of Oct. Can't wait.

    Small/ short? Seriously? I feel like I have been playing this game forever and I am at 30%.

    Also, at this point in the game, I feel like you are supposed to like Michael and not be a fan of Trevor... but I can't help but feel like Michael is a total dick that deserves everything coming to him and I feel really bad for Trevor and hope things work out in his favour.

    I mean, I suppose it could be relatively short if you just plowed through the main missions... but it's so easy to get distracted in this game, that I feel one has to really be determined to follow through on that sort of plan.

    I'm glad the Federal Depository robbery is a lot longer of a mission than the other heists. I figured I would finish up the main storyline yesterday... glad that wasn't the case.

    I pretty much didn't play the game alone, handing the controller off to my friend every other mission, and we took the game down in four or five days. That gave me a lot of time since to uncover how small the map is, how few fun side-missions there are, and that GTA Online really has to be the other half, or more, or what we were sold. I put this much time into GTA4, and still never beat it. That this game is more compelling is no question, but I'm hoping that they really utilize the GTA Online mode, and the DLC with this game, because the potential is definitely there.

    There's also supposed to be some crazy end game content after you've hit 100% completion. I've not read too much about it because I don't want to be spoiled... but that's apparently a big part of the game you may be missing out on.

    I'm at just above 80%. I heard that zombie mode is unlocked after you hit 100%. Upon googling, I realized it wasn't real. Someone had 100% in the first 48 hours of the game being released. No footage of zombies (outside of the one guy dressed in a zombie costume in the Vinewood area) yet, so I think this craziness is total bullshit. Besides that, who the hell gets 100% on a GTA game? I'm surprised I've wasted this much time in getting up to 80%.

    With Supre gone, and canexplain on the ropes, the internet predators begin to sniff out their next target. It's always fun to have a certified pedo removed from a network, but someone might get their ass kicked over the message board feeding frenzies one of these days. When that day dawns, I hope I'm in line waiting for a spicy pie (which are just the worst now, m i rite, my hipster brethren?), camera in hand, so I can capture the bullshit to repost here. Good times.

    Also, I've been replaying missions, helping people on the side of the road, and delivering people to the altruist cult, all without gaining any additional percentage on the completion of the game. It's like I hit a wall at 80%, or the game isn't loading progress when saved anymore. In fact, taking a stripper to her house for a fuck and an add to my cell phone seems like the only thing that's gained any percentage in the past two days. Shite.

    I found the idea of Bioshock Infinite to be a lot cooler than the actual game, though it got a hell of a lot of praise for being a great game. It seems like games want to be fun, and have some great story line, without actually allowing you to break from the story line to go have fun, as you can in GTA V. While that fun is limited to how many times you can enjoy mass murdering people and running from cops, it's still there. Bioshock Infinite had me feeling trapped within the game, trying to learn and buy moves I didn't even care to use, and basically growing bored with the story very quickly. I'm that guy.

    I just finished the story and will never, ever 100% this thing. It's too much of a pain in the ass to get where you're going without driving all over the fucking place, and I'm just over it, even though it's nice to see L.A. again (especially without traffic). I just wanted to jam myself through it all before the online mode went live.

    GTAV was a million times more interesting from a story perspective than GTAIV, in my opinion. I stopped GTAIV because I just couldn't have cared less about the boring characters.... since then I've completed Max Payne 3, Red Dead Redemption and L.A. Noire... so Rock Star has won me over. I may go back and try to stomach GTA IV again, but I doubt it with PS4 coming in a month.
