    GTA: San Andreas comes to Xbox

    Anyone else bought it? a friend had the PS2 version and he was talking it up, I didnt believe him. Came out on Xbox/PC yesterday, and it is BRILLIANT. I wont be on D2 for a while, let me tell you. And, if you live in Australia, go to K-Mart or Big W, its only 80 bucks! not sure about EB/Games Wizards etc.

    I played it to death on the PS2. And yes the game is absolutly awesome. Not sure if this version will be different in any ways...

    Taken them ages to get it out on the X-Box though. Anyone know why so long?

    I only Played it on PS2, when i still had my PS2... Awsome Game even though i usually only went along the beaches and killed innocent bystanders with my double sawed-off shotguns. And over 400 officers with a M16/M4. Oh yeah and skydived into the ground without opening my parachute.

    Good times...

    It probably took so long to put out on Xbox because of some sort of disagreement? I thought it would be a PS2 only game, Obviously I was wrong.

    Its quite intresting. But its always usually Consoles first then us Pc gamers get left behind for a year or so untill it hits our shelves =.=

    Anyway, kind of lost intrest in GTA after it went 3d... Played 3 + VC and didnt like either of them much.

    Last I heard Sony tried to get GTASA for only Playsation. THen Rockstar found a loophole in the contract and started developing the game for its Xbox and PC customers.

    Plan on buying it for PC soon.

    it is a fun game but the biggest problem i could find with are the controls and the custom music control. but the game script and characters more than make up for it and it has some very decent replay value

    well the big improvement are the huge landscapes the ability to fly something other than a dodo or helicopter. new content includes the ability to ride a bike :eek: and a harrier jet.

    "Well, here's a suggestion for the Democrats as to how they can help defend family values: don't accept oral sexual favours from White House interns while you're supposed to be running the country - and keep your cigars firmly to yourself.

    Indeed, we suspect that Clinton's indignation may have something to do with the fact that an as-yet-unconfirmed mod called "Lewinski" allows GTA gamers to blast their way into the Oval Office using semi-automatic rifles and then receive the kind attentions of a plump and shameless hussy called Monika who groans: "Oh yeah, you the man! Yeah, give it to me Bill!" while chewing on a big, fat... cigar"

    Holy ****, I can't believe they are still going on about this :lol:

    And they are now using it to insult the man's wife!

    Keep in mind that the site normally rails about the EEVILLS of the Shrub administration... I think they were just going for a cheesy, nasty joke.

    GTA: San Andreas has started to get my goat

    The game doesnt have the atmosphere that VC had, but otherwise its greatly improved, the first thing you notice is how huge the game is, tha land mass is around 3-5 times larger than VC.

    I've played it for around 150 hours, and I still play it almost daily. I really enjoy getting a nice car, tuning to a good radio station, and just cruising the highways of SA. The missions were mostly good, execpt some horrible RC car and helicopter things. One line of missions that was really fun was a Oceans 11 styled casino robbery. Good times.

    9/10, in my book.

    do I smell a hot coffee bump?

    as far as limited or temporary availability, I still see the Guy Game everywhere and I was under the impression they pulled that one back

    No bump; a hijack perhaps. I'm one of those Christian Terrorist types that don't want someone trying to tell me what is moral and what isn't. Particularly a militant lesbian.

    Usually this sort of rank idiocy is reserved for the Moral Majority types. Perhaps Hill thinks they'll fall for her?

    you can call it what you want, I didn't mean it as a negative

    and we all knew it would be a GTA game to trigger this kind of political opportunism, damn you GTA for making the rest of us look bad and giving them ammunition yet again :mad:

    They will always find a game to piss and moan over, GTA just happened to be a bit more obvious than others.
