Wait...I'm confused. Is this just a reissue of the old game but on the 360 platform?

Nope it's a brand new game for 360 and PS3. GTA III, Vice City, San Andreas Vice City Stories and Liberty City stories are all use the same game engine. This is a brand new game with a new game engine and all new characters

Marc Lombardi
06-27-2007, 04:55 AM
GTAIII was the one that was insanely popular
GTA: Vice City (I thought this would have been 4)
GTA: San Andreas (and then this would have been 5)

Are Vice City and San Andreas considered GTA-IIIA and GTA-IIIB?

Yeah, They considered all of the follow ups as just sub-sects of GTA III's universe

Q4 is shaping up to be anal rape. $90 for GTA IV, $200 for Rock Band, $60 for Halo 3, and that's just the stuff I know I'm going to buy.

Marc Lombardi

$200 for Rock Band?

Is that for EVERYTHING?

JoeE

$200 for Rock Band?

That gets you a drumset, a guitar, a microphone, and the game. I think you have to buy another guitar if you want a bassist.

Also, I'm calling it now - Rock Band, assuming everything goes smoothly and it makes its Q4 release date, WILL replace the Wii as the cool new gimmick this holiday season.

Akira
06-27-2007, 04:59 AM
$60 for Halo 3
If you do't want the special or legendary edition:

Standard ($59.99 US)
Collector's ($69.99 US)
Legendary ($129.99 US)

Bioshock and Assassin's Creed both have special editions too.

Indeed. It's a party game, and unlike wii party games, it can also be played online.

This is what will eventually bite Nintendo in the ass I think. There's no reason, in this day and age, I shouldn't be able to play Mario Pary 8, Warioware, and the mass amount of multiplayer VC games online against others.

Actually, the Guitar Hero games are very normal-people friendly. EVERYONE loves to play Guitar Hero. I assume Rock Band would be, too.

Considering I already have GH3, the guitar that comes with Rock Band can serve as the bass for me. That means I'm 100% positive I'm getting this. I cannot WAIT to play the drums on this thing. (Just read all about it on Wikipedia)

As for GTA4 -- yeah, I'll get that too but after the price drop.

There is also a good article about Rock Band in this month's Game Informer and a good discussion about the game on the latest EGM podcast. They say unlike the guitar, you WILL learn to play drums with RB.

Wait, you already have GH3? ;) wonder if the GH guitar will work with RB.

Sorry. Maybe it'll be out for PC, but unless your system is pretty high-end already you're gonna have to sinc some serious money into it to meet even the minimum requirements

Garth

yeah, it is a cool guitar, i just hope the buttons are easy to push, they look kind of thin and small, yet that is one of the things that makes the guitar look cool. As a side not, even though this thread is somewhat derailed, on IGN there is a new section discussing the GH III wireless guitar for the 360. However it is available for Insiders only. So if you have Insider accesss, help us out ;-)

oi. yeah, i don't think my laptop or home desktop would handle it.

i'll probably mooch off my friend's 360 for a while, and if the game hits me as hard as the last two (which is very likely)... maybe... maybe i'd be crazy enough to get a 360. it seems like a good system (though i fear what would happen to me if i had xbox live).

yeahh, it does seem really fun. i played halo 2 with my friend, and i couldn't get over that people were talking (mostly trash) through the game.

i'm just worried i'd play too much and lose my girlfriend and social life. hopefully, there'll just be an adjustment period.

Look at it this way...because of the Network adapter, the the mod/game pirateing community were able to hack the console and play pirated games.

Though the process to get a game running was insanely tedius and not worth the effort.
