This has been floating round for quite a while now and should be out early 2010. Looks far better than GTA multiplayer.

This is that completely online GTA-ish game right? It sound pretty awesome to me, but I know a lot of people who seem to think it will suck ass.

MMO's are gay, but this might be really gay.

Looks like Fallout 3 meets SR2 meets FFXIV or whatever that shitty MMO is for the 360.

Haven't looked too much into the detail yet so I may be wrong but I was told you can alter the appearance of your character to the point where you could recognise yourself if you wanted.
Ex-PS Fanboy
I really don't see why everbody hates MMO games apart from the fact that the people who usually hate it usually suck at it. Some games yes, but a completely online GTA? That sounds fucking amazing. We could have the entire iGTA community in that game!

I've been told that while your not playing people can steal your stuff so when you get back on you could find yourself minus your hard earned loot. If this is the case you'd have to be on it almost 24/7 to get anywhere.
Ex-PS Fanboy
But then you could just go and steal from someone else, or steal your stuff back. That would be a kinda shitty feature though...

To my knowledge, this game is going to be a group MMO. Right? Isn't it like you join a gang that watches each others backs, like a clan sort-of thing?

Sounds about right from what I've been told, I'll have a good browse through the links I posted when I've got time. This is the only game since GTA4 that's actually made me sit up and take notice of.

I remember the old thread between my Skribble, Blaze and a few others. Got to a really high post count then the mods got pissed off and we all got warned. That seemed ages ago now. But obviously it's still going to be ages till it's out as look at the vacancies list.

Doubt it will be out in 2010.
Ex-PS Fanboy
Exactly one of the reasons it hasn't grabbed my attention, it's to far off. The only game that succeeded in doing that was GTAIV.

Accepting Beta applications, not giving it out. And a Beta in an MMO will take a lot longer than in a normal game. I say it's out at earliest autumn 2011.

Hopefully. Then we'll have a year to play it before the world ends

WoW definatly. But no MMOs.

Just reading this (features) fills me with anticipation but I can't help thinking slow down and disconnection will be a common problem.
Don't like to sound negative, it's just that it seems too good to be true.

As a top player, your name will be at the top of league tables held online. San Paro will be your world: your character’s name and face as well known as a Hollywood movie star, a standard that other players aim for. But how long can you stay at the top?


yeah cuz everyone knows/cares about the top GTA players too. rolleyes.gif

I think we can safely assume whoever stays at the top spot for a while will be a loner with a bank balance large enough to feed a much needed cocaine addiction.

i remember the first trailer said it was gonna be out in 2007...

It's just the sudden excitement followed by release date delays that's made people feel let down. I don't see how anyone can claim a game is shit when it doesn't exist yet.

I don't hate it, but unless there's a ton of people I know playing it, I don't want to waste my internet on it.

Waste your internet? I don't understand...

I live in the middle of buttfuck nowhere, the only broadband available to me is mobile broadband from Verizon, and they limit me to five gigs of data usage per month.

Basically, it's them same kind of internet your cell phone has, except it's limited. I'd be better off setting up an internet plan for my phone and just tethering.

Yeah, my phone has limited browsing as well, (1GB if I'm not mistaken) but I never knew that you could still have limited browsing on your computer... Seems like something from 15 years ago...
Massacre
But anyway, if I could get unlimited internet, I'd probably be bored enough to play an MMO.

If he has what I think he has, it's a shitty substitute for internet that uses cell phone towers (wherever you have cell phone reception, you have internet like on your phone). It's a little USB thing that plugs into your computer.

Why, yes it is.

A dongle?

My second computer has that, except we have a router.

The open beta is now working, you need to get a code but its easy to get them...

7 gigs? Fuck that shit. Let us know how it goes.

So it did actually launch? Great job promoting it, wasn't exactly in your face was it?
