Open letter to the Knights

Dear everyone,

I picked up GTA IV last night at the midnight launch. Pretty good time, but I didn't get a chance to play it last night. I fooled around with the safety deposit box, duffel bag and art book, but the game remains shrink wrapped. I have class tonight so I won't be able to try it out until around 9pm tonight. It's meta review is around 99/100 so it's gotta be pretty good. If anyone wants to purchase it today and play the new multiplayer modes let me know.

In the meantime:

SB, Pablito, Josey: Post about the new house, the moving process (did Josey carry everything single handedly?) Pablito, you better have taken pics. SB, are we finalized on the party date?

SB, Josey, Dammer, Eternal, Playboy: Post about trout fry. (did Josey drink everything single handedly?)

Hugs and Kisses,
The Daymonster

Hey Daymonster, I got GTA IV too, I haven't had a chance to look at it much either, besides playing with Dajuicee for about an hour today, but it seems cool. Lots of story boards for this game. Where has everyone been lately? I see Unky Eternal on CoD4 some lately, but not really anyone else. I convinced Dajuicee to get it finally so he's been playing it a lot with me. Y'all should get on and play sometime. Anyways take it easy.

I hear the multiplayer is awesome, can't decide what I will do first.

I'll pick it up tonight when I go grocery shopping if target has it.

yes, the boot has seams on the side. GTA IV is soooo f-ing awesome. Unky Yeager and I picked it up last night at midnight and played until about 4 in the morning. I dont know anything about the multiplayer, but i suggest everyone buys this game so we can play online.

Daymonster- did you buy it for 360? I hope you did. There is supposed to be way more downloadable content compared to PS3, and the critics are recommending the 360 version for that reason.

SB's name was saved on my comp for some reason. I actually posted the last comment.

Here is what I think after playing for about an hour.

meh, obviously nothing special. Frame rate isn't very good either. From a technological standpoint they aren't good, kind of bad actually. Artistically it is alright though. It has a nice style to it. The graphics aren't so bad that they ruin the experience or anything, but they could be vastly improved.

They're okay.
Walking around isn't too great. The camera turns really slow, even though I have my sensitivity on high (but I think that only effects aiming guns). It would have been a lot nicer if they let you set the sensitivity for the camera. The camera can be annoying at times.
Fighting is okay, it can be a bit clumsy.
Driving is pretty good for the type of game it is. Each car drives differently and the physics system is good enough to make it a fun experience. The camera can be a hassle though.
I haven't used any weapons, I'm not that far along in the game yet.
I like using the cell phone so far.

Pretty good so far. I've only done like 3 or 4 missions and a little bit of random stuff.
Most of the missions so far have just been learning the game. Learning how to drive, fight, dating, using the phone, etc. They seem like they'll become more fun when I get into the meat of the game.
Since I haven't gotten any weapons I haven't got to do much goofing off yet. I look forward to it. The highlight so far was stealing a cop car then turning on the sirens and seeing the cars pull over and clear a path for me as I sped down the highway.
The mini games are all well done so far. They have a lot of skill to them and are fairly fun. There also seems to be a lot of them, all I've done so far is pool and bowling though.
There were also a lot of funny things in the game such as the radio stations, the tv stations and other random stuff you see on the street.

Haven't played it yet, I'm looking forward to this and I probably wouldn't have bought the game if it didn't have it. I just want to learn the controls and everything before I jump in.

Obviously I haven't played enough of the game to get a total impression of the game yet. I wouldn't give it a 10/10 like everyone seems to be. There are so many things that could be better in the game such as the graphics and controls. The gameplay seems pretty good though. So far it looks like it will be an 8 or 9. I'll be playing it some more.
