Toy Soldiers: War Chest Hall of Fame Edition Review

TSWC_HFE_Key_Art_1438115108

Even a big dollop of nostalgia can’t elevate this uninspired sequel.

I have said it before and I will say it again; the hardest games to write about are the ones that scream mediocrity, the games that sit in the middle of the road and seem content to be there. The games that feel like little more than existing to satisfy a balance sheet more than any creative impetus. The games that trade on solid tried (or tired) and tested mechanics and do little to excite the player or innovate the genre. While I wasn’t expecting much from Toy Soldiers: War Chest Hall of Fame Edition (henceforth Toy Soldiers) what I got was incredibly predictable. A game that feels as dated as the oddly placed 2013 Microsoft trademark (this is a Ubisoft published game) on it’s title screen, Toy Soldiers limps along suffering from a myriad of technical issues coupled with game play that would best be suited to the previous generation or a tablet.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta preview

rsz_bo3-reveal

Call of Duty is the biggest franchise going today but Treyarch is in charge of the biggest series within the franchise, “Black Ops”. Since Black Ops 2, the franchise is considered to be on the decline but Advanced Warfare proved that the biggest dog still has fight in it. With almost 100 million copies sold, Black Ops 3 has a lot to live up to.

Having the biggest fanbase opens you up to the biggest amount of criticism. Millions come to Call of Duty to play the same tight controls, burst of XP goodness and flamboyant presentation. Millions of people also throw shade at the annualisation and “sameness” to each passing game. So how do you keep things familiar but fresh at the same time? Look to your publisher’s other games it seems.

Whoa there Pug, I was referring to MGS, not COD. :? It hasn't been confirmed what res COD is running at on XB1 yet.
Yeah, I understood, I was adding MG as it is imminent and after my XB COD beta res disappointment I decided to PS4 with that too.
Born2beSlicker
For reference: Advanced Warfare multiplayer was 1360x1080 on Xbox One while PS4 was 1920x1080. It wouldn't surprise me if it stays the same, as it's the same engine this time.

Whoa there Pug, I was referring to MGS, not COD. :? It hasn't been confirmed what res COD is running at on XB1 yet.
Pug
The difference was VERY apparent. Went ahead and changed my MG preorder to PS4 too as the res on that is 900p compared to 1080p on the PS4, plus I gather there is some sort of tie-in with that mini prologue that uses the save....or summat.
NighteyesUK
Pug
Making me think about swapping my Metal Gear preorder to PS4 now....will have to research that to see.
It's 900p on Xbone, 1080p on PS4. Whether you'll notice the difference depends on how big your telly is.
Born2beSlicker
It's quite common that betas on Xbox seem to be at lower resolution for performance reasons. I'm waiting for Digital Foundry to set their sites on things to explain what's going on.
Pug
I'm surprised how inferior the graphics are on the Xbox compared to the PS4! Call me Shallow Pug if you like, but after playing the beta on the PS4 where the visuals are super crisp, I thought my eyes were on the blink when I put it on the Xbox One. Almost has a slight blur to it. If this is the case for release I will have to go with the PS4 version. Would have preferred it on Xbox as it runs silent, but can't get past how shit it looks. Making me think about swapping my Metal Gear preorder to PS4 now....will have to research that to see.

Here's some gameplay from me, if you're curious and not got a code yet. https://account.xbox.com/en-gb/gameclip ... c739b703e2
Born2beSlicker
Having a short go on this before needing to go out. Damn, this is bloody hard! I thought the movement was TitanFall but it's not, it's much slower and less fluid than that, it's still CoD. But the game moves faster than any CoD game, so I'm being ripped. :(
hallben
If you wanna send me a code that would be cool.
Lostcauz
Codes aren't redeeming on most regions at the moment, change your region to Brazil on Xbox.com, redeem your code on there and it'll start downloading to your Xbox. I'm sure it'll get fixed soon.
Lostcauz
I have two codes going spare, anyone want one?
Lostcauz
You normally get 3 codes for the beta so if any are going spare, I'd appreciate one.
Born2beSlicker
I got an Xbox code. If you get into the beta, let's team up.
Mr C
The Black Ops games do tend to try something new plus the campaigns have been longer than the standard 4-6 hrs for other cod games. I do get the get the point about people dropping 40 quid (or 54.99 if you buy digitally) every year
Born2beSlicker
They did the branching campaign in BlOps2 but I didn't dig it.
Floyd
I think it f there was a meaty 12 hour campaign with an interesting branching story with local co-op, then I would be more inclined.
Born2beSlicker
They're still highly polished games with lots of content to keep people going for a long time. They also all play differently while remaining familiar. Their popularity doesn't surprise me, though I wish the franchise was braver.
Floyd
Woohoo! Another year of ignoring this franchise is upon me. Honestly though, how people drop £40+ every year for this is crazy.
Born2beSlicker
Got a PS4? The beta U.S. open to everybody.
They've just went full on TitanFall but without Titans. Looks fun but Black Ops 2 bugged the hell out of me. Hopefully the beta helps for me.

Normally they only put them up when the game is gold so that you can pre-download it. Thats kinda crazy, especially considering the marketing deal has swung over to Sony.

I guess it's gone up early because of the MP beta code offer for pre-orders... but it's still *really* fucking early :? EDIT: Yeah, just looked at the store listing on Xbox.com: https://store.xbox.com/en-GB/Xbox-One/G ... ilsSection

Britxbox - Call of Duty: Black Ops III revealed – details, release date, and trailer
Mr C
The Black Ops games are set in different timelines which is why I think I like them more as there is variety. It's unlikely this one will be based solely in one timeline either. I do agree the obsession with modern tech is boring now and I think historical settings are much more interesting. Would love to see a proper nam game
Harry
They just blew their load and have nowhere else to go with it. The modern day warfare stuff is done just the same way WWII stuff is utterly done. I'm not sure anyone can go back to that era of FPS. It's a shame really but the same thing happens in music all the time.
MartyMcFly88
I do wish CODs devs would drop the stupid future nonsense and go back to a historical or modern era. Why not make a COD set in Vietnam, that could be great! This might actualy be the first COD I actually don't bother with. It looks silly, nano tech and what looks like super powers and transforming arms/weapons. Official reveal trailer.
Harry
I REALLY hope that neither Microsoft or Sony let them do another 10 minutes gameplay video of people falling of ledges and crashing helicopters in there press conferences this year.

Damn, you're way into the minority with the AW comments. A lot of people like BlOos though.
Mr C
I really enjoyed the campaign in both Black ops games. They are the only COD games I have enjoyed in recent years. Both games tried to do something a little different with the COD formula. Advanced warfare I found to be blander than bland
Born2beSlicker
Black Ops 2 campaign was so bad but the multiplayer was so good. Hope this is more like the first game than the second with its campaign structure.

Whispering Willows review

rsz_willows

Making your first game is the only way to make future projects better, you learn from your mistakes and hone your craft. Whispering Willows from Night Light Interactive brings the same feelings of optimism in its creation that revisiting my early reviews have. Just like my first handful of reviews, the reality is, this first attempt just isn’t very good.

Whispering WIllows is a 2D puzzle-adventure game that first debuted on the Ouya. Playing as Elena, you explore a haunted mansion trying to find your Dad who has went missing. Elena is equipped with an amulet that allows her to astral-project her spirit self to talk to ghosts, explore rooms she can’t physically access and possess objects that need manipulated.

Steamworld Dig is fantastic. I think very highly of that game and finished it twice. I bought it but it was also on Plus a while back. Rogue Legacy is also fantastic. I also bought it and it was also on Plus a while back. Didn't finish it tough but got to level 110.

Some really good games have been released lately. It's pointless me getting them right now though as obsessed with the Witcher at the moment (amazing game)

Lifeless Planet: Premier Edition Review
Born2beSlicker
The Swapper review. Very good game. Kind of ran out of steam by the end.
Born2beSlicker
Weirdly, this old game has an embargo so I can't talk about it other than it exists. Don't ask me why because *shrug*.
Harry
The Swapper is cool. I Ised a guide to get 100% trophies on it but figured the puzzles out myself. I wasn't in the mood for hunting around for which way to go at the time. It can be finished in an hour with a guide.
Born2beSlicker
I'll have a review of The Swapper up tomorrow. Just a heads up though. You get zero achievements for completion or progression. Like Limbo, they're all tied to hidden collectables. So prepare to hunt or cheat I guess, as it's an old game.
Born2beSlicker
Hey, I reviewed Shovel Knight. You should buy it!
Born2beSlicker
Oh it's a horrible policy that only hurts Xbox out of some weird pride. But there's a lot of reports that they're backing away from it and have been doing so for the last 1-2 months, which is good.
Harry
It's still kinda there. There has been recent examples that escape my mind right now but I remember being really annoyed at having to wait for The Pinball Arcade to release on Xbox One before they were allowed to release seasons 2-3-4 tables on PS4. It was a pathetic way of doing things and if I remember correctly the Retro city Rampage developer said that type of bullshit had been in place since way back in the 360 days.
Born2beSlicker
Microsoft lost 2-3 years of building relationships with indies and now they're paying for it. The launch parity thing is pretty much gone though, thankfully.
Harry
Well that game came out this week on PS4 also. I am a little confused as to what Microsoft can't do. I was talking to the developer of Retro City Rampage a few months back and it's clear Microsoft make it less easy for developers but there just seems to this strong connection between Sony and the indies. The launch parity thing is so silly. They are shooting themselves in the foot with that. Have you seen what's happened to Steam lately though? That's what happens when you let your guard down too far. Below looks awesome though...

For me the promise of this program is rapidly being squandered while Sony rules the indie scene. :? :cry:

hancocaj
How the Meaning of ‘Hot Mess’ Has Changed Through History The slogan for Amy Schumer's new Comedy Central show, "hot mess," has been around since Schumer was but a twinkle in her great-grandmother's ovaries. For instance, in the 1800s it would have merely meant "food for soldiers"... not a soldier with food all over himself Ads for the second season of comedienne Amy Schumer’s sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer, promised viewers one thing in bold capital letters in advance of the premiere Tuesday night: “HOT. MESS.” For hip kids familiar with that slang term, it’s easy to see why promoters chose it to sum up the program—one in which the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Schumer spills sandwiches on herself and considers participating in “low budge” pornography. In Schumer’s case, the operable definition of hot mess would be something like “(n.), someone in obvious disarray or disorganization, esp. while remaining attractive in spite of this.” But the history of hot mess goes back to a time when Schumer’s dark brand of feminist comedy would have sent the Suffragettes reeling to their fainting couches...

I've heard it elsewhere. Same as words like "jank", somebody coins new words all the time to add more nuance to expressions. Sometimes crap or awkward or shit doesn't fit as accurately as you want it to. I'm sure somebody said it before me but I'm the first person I'm aware of to use the term Wii condom for that old rubber cover Nintendo game out when people were smashing Wii remotes into their TVs. Tycho from PA started Wiimote. Gavin Free from Achievement Hunter coined Dinklebot for Destiny. Language is great as it constantly evolves. When people wince at new expressions because it's bullshit, they can piss off.

Britxbox - Physical release of Dying Light delayed in Europe and elsewhere Hmm. Interesting. If the physical release was delayed *everywhere*, I'd probably assume it was because of some last minute major fixing being needed, that would be too late for the discs to still get released on time... but it's not everywhere, just "everywhere but America".
Harry
ahhhhh so thats how their going to get people to go digital now. Genius! and fucking sad. I expect this to become very common. There's something about the american market that no one will touch. Their games are $60 just like all the 360 titles ever were. We get a price hike from £39.99 normal street price to £50. It's bullshit. .....but conspiracy theories aside, the printing of disks excuse is a lame one but probable I guess.

It does seem lame excuse. It's being published by WB Games, surely they can manage to produce sufficient discs for distribution outside North America at launch?

Yeah looks just like Dead Island (which I actually enjoyed). The graphics looks very nice though. Think I may wait for the physical release though before purchasing unless reviews say it's the most amazing game ever (unlikely)
Tezcatlipoca
No reviews at/by release, as it seems WB sent review copies out quite late. GameSpot said it only recently got it, so its review is still in progress. IGN's is also still in progress, as it only got a copy on Monday. With this and the delay of the physical version by an entire month outside America, I'm a little concerned.

OK I have put about 3 or 4 hours into this today and I am really enjoying this. I think it's loads better than Dead Island and the mix of visceral melee combat and parkour movement reminiscent of Mirrors Edge is loads of fun.

The Destiny: The Taken King – Strike the Dreadnaught livestream will start at 11am Pacific Time (7pm BST) this Wednesday 26 August on Bungie’s Twitch channel. One more livestream – Court of Oryx – will follow at the same time on Wednesday 2 September, again focussing on The Taken King itself.

Hi, At the minute I am just interested in learning the ropes through playing some of the story missions, but also trying to find a group of friends to raids and things with. I am not in a rush to level up, but prefer playing things in groups as it is always more fun and easier to learn. I am currently level 7 so have a long long way to go. I presently have none of the expansion packs, as if I liked the game I was going to sell it and buy the lastest version with all the current DLC when it comes out. I will add you to my FL Thanks

Hello! There is quite a lot to pick up in Destiny, and what the game starts out as is quite different to how it ends :D There is a very large update coming out in 2/3 weeks which changes how the story works, and to a reasonable extent re-writes the story/single player campaign. It also has a boost item in it that will take you instantly to a reasonably high level, so you could skip that story entirely if you wanted to. So you may or may not want to get started now, depending on how keen you are. What version of the game do you have (base game and what DLC packs?) and what kind of game do you want to play? Particularly how keen are you to get to maximum level and do all of the "end game" co-op activities like 6 player raids and 3 player Nightfalls? versus playing through a single player campaign to get a story, level up and get some loot?

Hi I am new to xbox and currently have an empty friends list. I am a mature gamer (35) and trying to find some people to play destiny with as I am just starting out and not really sure what I am doing. If you feel like teaming up please message me.

Ah ok I see. Well I'll see who's online tonight and *might* be able to get a third? Sometimes I have 10+ on and other times 0! I got thunderlord as a draop back in like month 2 and I still haven't fully levellled it yet! I got a Vex to drop so I have all the weapons (except no land beyond comically! ...and 2 of the how ones) . Also finally got Word of Crota to drop so nice to get another hand cannon.
NighteyesUK
It's amazing for Arc Nightfalls.
Born2beSlicker
Thunderlord was one of my first ever Exotics and I have never used it. It's been in my vault for months. :lol:
NighteyesUK
Would you believe I only got Hawkmoon a month ago? As a Hand Cannon "enthusiast" it's the gun I've lusted after since the game was released. After countless times running the nightfall, Vault of Glass, and Crota, and getting almost all the other weapons (I've had three No Land Beyonds, THREE!) it finally dropped when I opened the big Prison of Elders chest for the first time. It was an emotional moment. Have to say though, an ascended Fatebringer is a more versatile weapon. Especially when fighting fallen Captains with their arc shields. I bought Thunderlord yesterday, it's another that never dropped for me, and it's getting a Year 2 makeover, so if you have the coins, grab it. It's bloody good. Hawkmoon is also getting the year 2 treatment. I doubt it'll get nerfed, it feels well balanced to me.
Born2beSlicker
Can you send us Hawkmoon before its nerfed and unlocked on Xbox? Dem sweet hax.

I can point and laugh at your avatars if you like. Had a good go at Skolas last night, but got really unlucky when we were near the second mine stage. All later attempts were nowhere near. :(

Worth it because they're rejigging the story mode to be more coherent, with Nolanbot being more helpful than dinkletwat. ;)
They're not adding an actual story to the base game though, are they, just "questifying" the missions? Better, but still probably not something I could bring myself to replay.
hancocaj
Tez - Keep your character assuming you want to stay a Hunter and are happy with the face/features. You get a one-use only consumable to boost you to level 25. They haven't said yet if that includes unlocking most of your subclass abilities and they also havent said if that unlocks all the missions and content below level 25. It is designed to be high enough to get you into the first story mission of TTK and essentially your game starts from there (levelling up, dropping loot etc etc).
Yeah, I think I'll keep it.
hancocaj
Born2beslicker - I'll try to get on tonight if at all possible. Dangermouse - Yep! Check out "slayerage" on Youtube - he got a lot of the first solo runs and solo boss kills. Watch the video where he jumps onto all sorts of small ledges to climb up a very large tower in VoG - when he gets to the top, if he jumps, the game thinks he is outside of the map and doesn't teleport him during the oracles phase. So he has to stand there and snipe for literally 20 minutes whilst getting perfectly timed jumps every 60 seconds or so.... The other approach is to use a self res warlock and die just before the teleport and then self res just after. You can't completely solo the vault because the Gorgon part won't work unless 3 players are in the fire team...but you can get them to login, make the door open, and log out again. Solo'ing Crota is easier I think.

The raids can be played without 6 people? :?

Just got the Flawless Raider trophy/achievement. :D
Well done - how did you do it? As a team of 6 or less? Did you do the lamps "properly"? or have a lone hunter stealth through it?
Team of six. Hunter stealthed the lamps. Twice back to orbit. The first time was my fault. I was the last due to go over the bridge. But the bridge started to deconstruct, so I dithered a bit and got ganked by the sword bearer and two knights. :lolno: The second time we were all too conservative when going for the Deathsinger, and got killed by her liturgy. We nailed it after that.
Ah cool - in our run we had a guy who could stealth the lamps. We failed at the bridge twice I think...comically someone Ghorned a rock in front of their face...and someone else poked out of a bubble just as the shrieker death blasts were coming. We also could have done it on our very first run but Crota glitched and nailed the sword bearer (genuine glitch not bad play). So I think we got it on attempt 5....I never died in any of them! (Normally I die the most!). Our sword bearer just solo'd Crota last night because he was bored :facepalm: :D If someone can reliably stealth the lamps, and the swordbearer is pretty solid, then the rest is pretty straightforward to do. It also adds a nice degree of tension to the whole exercise :D Anyway there's probably a 70%/80% chance i can get on tonight at 8.30-9ish. I'm happy to join in on a Skolas run (done it successfully twice) but I'm not a pro player. The top priority is to kill all the adds, all of the time...actually damaging Skolas during the fight is kind of a hobby that you dabble in occasionally.
Born2beSlicker
I've got Skolas and about 13 public events to do to become Legend. I'm not the collector kind of person. I have no interest in grinding VoG/Crota/Nightfall/PoE every week like some lunatics do. But I do want to play everything at least once before it gets completely retooled and my maxed out Gjallarhorn will make Skolas a bit easier. In other news. Destiny might be finally coming to PC.

Skolas and a few chests are all I need to "Become Legend". Skolas is a cunt. :lolno:

An awful lot of material out about TTK now. Not that happy that only some exotics are being brought forward and we have to re-buy them but hey ho....the Bungie weekly update also lists fairly limited ways to get legendary marks so it may be quite hard to buy legendaries for a little while. The collections stuff is quite good and also quite clever to try and make people go Pokemon. EDIT - Craigimt are you on xbox or the other one? VoG shouldn't normally glitch too much, was it all uk players? I've found Crota to be much more glitchy.

I've still not done VoG despite doing Crota several times. Everytime we tried VoG the final boss would be a bit glitchy.
Born2beSlicker
I'm happy with the fact they did something new and that they have done a great job in addressing feedback. But I still stand by how bad the game was at launch. It was way too abusive and some of the stuff the beta brought (engrams changing colours) should have never be a thing in the full game. The game today and the game coming is almost a sequel to the original, it's that much better.
NighteyesUK
In Bungie's defence, they'd never branched into this kind of RPG game before. In fact, this is definitely the first of its kind. We also know that it went through several massive changes throughout its development. The fact that what they put out at launch was still highly polished, and incredibly addictive, is remarkable. The Vault of Glass is still one of my best ever gaming experiences, and the reason for me putting Destiny as my GOTY for 2014 (just ahead of Alien). Now, it looks like they've finally learned some harsh lessons (especially with the previous dlc attempts). I can't wait for The Taken King. I'm going to start an Exo Titan in addition to continuing with my beloved Awoken Warlock. Roll on September.
Born2beSlicker
BXB: Big changes coming to Destiny TTK I wrote about the major (not all) changes announced for those who can't find time for the stream. The changes look awesome. They're making it way less abusive and making the grind far more rewarding, whilst letting you just play what you want rather than being forced to do shit you don't enjoy. Very happy with these changes. Highlights just how bad the launch of this game was.
NighteyesUK
They're giving you the option of having the focussed fire perk, rather than forcing it on you. I just watched a nice recap of the vid from last night. It all looks fucking amazing. I can't wait.

The only DLC has been GTA Online stuff which is all free. Those packs do add guns and cars to the single player but nothing of any true value.

Has there been any game DLC released yet? I am thinking about starting this again on the Xbox One, I had a blast completing the campaign on the Xbox 360.

I HIGHLY recommend turning the dead zone on the sticks to zero. Then change the control scheme to FPS standard (I think it was) for both first person and 3rd person. This will make your RB button do the sprinting while the rest of the actions actually control like a proper game. A would be jump, X would be to get in cover , B would be reload, Y would be to get in voices. It allows you to look around with the right stick run running too. A neat trick is when your in first person mode and you use this control scheme RB will give you maximum sprint. So on a bike or running all you have to do is hold the Rb button down and you got full speed. You can then even let go of the sticks and it'll just auto run.
Craigimt
Did you change the controls for first person? It makes it so much easier if you do.
MartyMcFly88
Finally got this for X1. Had it completed on 360 but didn't do any of the collectibles. Might so them now. So far am amazed by the new grpahics and extras. 1st person is mental.
Tezcatlipoca
Ah, right. No, I got the Achievement for completing the final mission without problem.
Harry
Well my chosen ending was the trio pushing an arsehole off a cliff in a car. thats what everyone picks but I looked at my trophies weeks later and found I didn't have one for finishing the game, so I loaded the last mission again. I ended up with a show down between Michael and Franklin.
Tezcatlipoca
What happened to you?
Harry
You should try loading up the very last mission again and see if the same happens to you as it did for me. It doesn't disrupt your previous choice (all characters will still be available in post game story mode)
Tezcatlipoca
Same as with 360.
Franklin
My bad, homie. I picked C. Ain't that a bitch?
Harry
I did the boat parts one I think it was, then realised after everything there wasn't even a trophy for it. DOH!. The nuke waste was the worst one by far. I found the best way to do that was to simply get a cargo bob and air lift the sub at trevor's airfield. I never enjoyed how slow the sub was, intact its the only bad thing in the game. Knife fights are when you fly a plane on its side between two buildings. It was hard to do but there was about 7 of them I think. I think i'm a bit of a wizard in a chapter so I found all the collecting stuff mildly enjoyable. It's just fun being in that world full stop. Oh by the way, what ending did you get?
Tezcatlipoca
Collectables just bore me... And I never find using a helicopter enjoyable :lol: I may not need all of the stuff I listed, but I still need a fair amount of it (parachute jumps, letters, spaceship parts, stunt jumps, knife flights, under the bridge, races...) most of which would just be too fucking tedious and/or annoying to me. http://gta.wikia.com/100%25_Completion_in_GTA_V
Danger Moss
You don't need to do half the stuff you mentioned for the 100%. You need all the space ship parts and letters but with a good you tube guide and a helicopter it's pretty easy and surprisingly enjoyable.
Tezcatlipoca
Finished the realtor thing for Trevor, went to the ? for Michael... 30 submarine pieces?! Fuck that. Tried a parachute jump. Failed a few times at landing on the small moving target. And there are 13 of these? Fuck that. Street races, sea races, stunt jumps, knife flights, under the bridge, parachute jumps, submarine parts, letter fragments, nuclear waste, golf, etc... Bollocks to all of that! I really can't be arsed :lol: I got a couple more Achievements (Sightseer, Three Man Army), had some fun with the tank and the attack chopper, and that's it. I'm done. On to the next thing in my backlog... Oh, and that tank is pretty fucking weak... Doesn't last long :?
Harry
There is a shockingly low number of races. They are available at night with Franklin mainly. I'd say there was under ten? The hobbies and past times are a breeze, you only have to do them once really. I take it you've checked out the rockstar social club page. It's pretty great at telling you what you've done and what's left to do.
Tezcatlipoca
I've actually just had a look at the IGN guide :lol: Not sure... There's also a chunk of Hobbies & Pastimes I've not done, and I'm not sure I can be arsed with the races etc. in addition to the collectibles and jumps.
Harry
It sounds like you've done a bulk of what you need to do to get the 100% so I say go for it. Getting the 100% will unlock one final mission. The jumps and collectable can be done perhaps 30-60 mins each using a guide. If you do, make sure you use a YouTube video guide. Then you have video proof it's correct. Try not to use the IGN one :)
Tezcatlipoca
Finished the Story on Friday night, then did a fair bit on Saturday night: Mrs Phillips, Kifflom, Assassinations (and stock market trading), and then went around buying all available property for each character. Also came across something last night that I later found out is a reward for returning players from last gen: The Imponte Duke O'Death, a badass armoured muscle car. Jumping in triggered a random event called "Duel" where I got chased by rednecks in trailer trucks :lol: Had some fun with the Railgun, too. Awesome gun, just a pity that it doesn't have a scope. Doubtful that I will bother aiming for 100%, as I find getting collectibles boring, but I'll still try and see what else I can finish off. Michael has some ? by the sub dock, Trevor still has the realtor side missions, and Franklin still has to do the parachute jumps to get the final Dominator side mission.
Floyd
personal vehicles always turn up, switching characters for awhile then switching back it'll be parked in the normal place.
Tezcatlipoca
Trevor's truck magically appeared at Wade's cousin's place, only to have vanished again when I went back a few minutes later after having run over loads of people while they were sunbathing. Guess I just have to wait. Googling suggests that you shouldn't lose the "personal vehicles", and that they do come back if they vanish.
Harry
"My chain hits the chest when i'm banging on the dashboard...." "high one, n*gga high one" "You an't gonna love it cause da hood don' love it" GTA has a great soundtrack. I'm more of a 80s pop person though. As for trevor losing his truck. It might be impounded by the police? it will turn up again. My rank 50 trophy popped once i hit rank 51 so i'm back in for the platinum....
Tezcatlipoca
I don't like that many songs on the soundtrack, and what I do like is spread over more than one station. I'd rather just have dialogue and sound effects than listen to stuff I don't like. Chat stations... funny at first, but soon get repetitive. A pity you can't have a custom radio station.
DogEyedBoy
I can't imagine driving around a GTA game to silence, at the very least make some mix tapes!
Born2beSlicker
We got that much. But, why not? There's a lot of good stuff on there, a lot I didn't know if before hearing it in the game. What about the chat stations?

Because I don't want to listen to any of the music.
Born2beSlicker

Tezcatlipoca
I finally started this on Xbox One on Saturday. It's good to be back in LS :) I wish that there was a way to have the radio off by default, though. It's annoying having to turn it off every time I get in a vehicle. Also, it fucking lost Trevor's truck! It was right there at his trailer, in the garage. I approached the trailer to trigger a mission, and the truck vanished and never came back. It's not at either safe house.
Harry
I levelled my online character to 50 last night but didn't get the trophy so my platinum dream is over. It's left me feeling a bit sour, I almost don't want to play it because of it.
Harry
I'm still craving more content. So rare you get those cravings after 100 hours. Some games are a struggle at 10 hours. Even after so long I still pause and just look at the beautiful scenery. I'll have to say that this is the 2nd best game of all time I reckon. 2nd place after the Mass Effect trilogy. It didn't come together for me until I changed the controls to standard FPS which actually let it control like a modern game. Still have a long way to go for the platinum. I need to reach level 100 (currently 47) and do everything there is to do online. I can focus on that now the single player is done but I do still have trophies for getting 70 gold medals on missions and that damn Altruist cult one. I'm on the last heist online. We gave up last night after a bunch of failures. One bad thing about this game is how much lobby time there is when your trying to do a very specific mission. 2 hours yesterday it took to complete 1 single set up mission.
Danger Moss
Congratulations. Easily one of the most enjoyable achievments I've done on 360. Was considering doing it on Xbox One as well, but I've come across a seemingly game breaking bug. None of the missions trigger and I'm stuck being Franklin. Apparently it's a known bug that's never been fixed. :(
Harry
Just unlocked the 100% game completion trophy and killed the Bigfoot. Only took me 111 hours 40 mins and 10 seconds apparently.
Harry
Yeah that looks fantastic. Clean sharp and smooth. If I put the motion control on my tv it looks like it's 60fps and yeah it looks amazing. It's a shame these new consoles arnt more capable. I could easily play this on my Mac but I just wish the console version ran like that. I'm still playing this game most days , on and offline.
Born2beSlicker
GTAV PC 1080p 60FPS trailer. I doubt I'll ever see this game running at 4K/60FPS but the PC version looks stunning.

...because there was 3 of us in party chat and the level 2 guy no one knew managed to drive the bus. It was chaos. I thought it was hilarious but my friends friend got rather angry. Jeez it's just a game.

That part is a piece of piss. Why were you screaming at each other?
Harry
Just did the first 2 player heist with a mate. It was a bit short and I didn't know how to use the drill :lol: $146,000 was nice when you come from nothing. Just did the prison bus setup mission, everyone was screaming at each other. I don't think we're freinds now :lol:

Some roles will be a lot harder though. I would of sucked at being in the prison I think. The people I did it with made it sound hard. Flying the plane is the easiest part. If we do that heist tonight then I'll go in the prison.

I was the prison guard. It's fucking intense. The beauty of the heists is that everybody's role is equally important.

Sorry, got called in to work so I couldn't do them tonight!

OMG, I'm so ready to heist tomorrow. I really, really, really mean it. :x Girlfriend is away home, my 360 friend is away for the weekend. All I have is Revelations 2.3 to do during the day and then I will absolutely 100% heist and GTA all evening for anybody who's on. You have no idea how much I want to main on the XBO version but with my main real life friend only on 360, I'm stuck making progress that won't even carry over on XBO which is frustrating.
Atleast you'll know what to do on the heists though.
