There's nothing we enjoy more at GTANet than talking about GTA V, so it's a treat when long-time fans and GTAForums members meta187 and Pusher get together for a chinwag and let us hear their thoughts and reviews of any recent headlines regarding the upcoming game.

For the second episode of the series so far, fellow forumer Voodoo joins the guys for a brief recap of the latest news as well as some interesting fan insight and discussion about the GTA series and more.

Listen, watch and enjoy!

CVG Preview Series and A Few Good Finds
Posted by Kirsty at 22:19. Category: General

With so much information to digest over the last month or so, a video round up is always handy and often a good reminder of tidbits of information you may have forgotten. The guys over at CVG have been doing exactly that with their weekly GTA 5 o'clock series, and have this week treated us to a lengthy discussion mixed with ample speculation about some key aspects revealed in the previews, including a well-rounded interpretation of just how the graphics might turn out.

It's important to note that these guys have actually seen the press demo, manned by Rockstar, so it's always interesting to hear their take on the up-close and personal details about the game and their impressions of what may be to come.

Though likely seen before and not an exclusive list, some interesting tidbits include:

Confirmed mini games include yoga, skydiving, scubadiving, golf, tennis, triathlons, bike racing, picking up hitchhikers, basejumping and ATM robberies
You won't drop/lose your gun your character is wielding if you run out of bullets
The money earned from heists will be millions of dollars
Shipwrecks won't only contain hidden money, but also useful items
Every vehicle is customisable; performance and aesthetics on the level of Midnight Club. Overtuning your car can make it useless and you can customise licence plates
Buying into property gives you perks, for example investing in a taxi firm will mean never having to spend money on a cab again
Infinitely the most ambitious game seen on current generation consoles
Certain purchases need other purchases to unlock; you need to buy a helipad before you can buy a helicopter, and the same can go for marinas

Something interesting also noted is that, after receiving a tip from a viewer, one of the images in the Los Santos photoviewers released in November last year as a pre-order perk is "exactly" if not identical to how the demo shown to the press started out, with Franklin skydiving over the mountains.

On the topic of fun finds, GTAForums member LackedMushroom0 has found this little gem all the way back from the very first trailer. You may have looked at this screen 100s of times, but he appears to be the first to have spotted Michael and Franklin together in the background of this security-guard-pushing-drunk-over scene outside the Tequi La La nightclub. Good eye!

Special and Collector's Edition announced!
Posted by Azazel at 14:07. Category: General

Rockstar have just updated the official GTA V website with specifics about the Special and Collector's Edition, along with a special Pre-Order bonus!

Pre-ordering either of the editions, including the standard one, will grant you access to the fabled Blimp, which has been the subject of many a discussion, especially concerning whether or not it was actually driveable.

The cheaper of the two extra content laden editions contains the following:

Collectible steelbook with exclusive artwork
Blueprint map
Stunt Plane Trials
Special Ability Boost
Bonus outfits, tattoos and more
Additional weapons

Click here for all the details!

This is the full package, containing everything a die hard GTA fan could want:

Collectible steelbook with exclusive artwork
Blueprint map
Grand Theft Auto V New Era 9FIFTY Snapback Cap
Grand Theft Auto V Security Deposit Bag with Logo Key
Stunt Plane Trials
Bonus outfits, tattoos and more
Custom characters for Grand Theft Auto Online
Special Ability Boost
Unique vehicles and garage property
Additional weapons

Click here for all the details!

Along with all this, the aforementioned Blueprint Map is depicted both in rolled-up form and as a partial cut out, leaving a good portion of the map visible. This prompted forum member gorgeprofondegta4 to reconstruct the map from the few snippets shown:


This really gives us a good look at a vast portion of the city, and parts of Blaine County. He also scaled it to the listed proportions of the map, showing that it's quite a bit larger than the visible areas, leaving lots of space for a few smaller towns, and much more countryside. Check out his post at the forums - splendid work!
Hotknife The Hotknife returns!
New Vehicles and Weapons!

In addition to the Atomic Blimp, the return of the Stunt Plane was also confirmed, this time in the shape of an Extra EA-200, which is quite a popular model. Ordering the full Collector's Edition will also grant you a Hotknife, which looks bloody gorgeous, and the CarbonRS sports bike seen earlier in a screenshot on May 7th. Online, players will get access to a high-end electric car called the Khamelion.

Owning the Collector's Edition will further hook you up with three free exclusive weapons: The Bullpup Shotgun, Pistol .50 and a hammer. What else could you ever need?

GTA 5 o'clock: Virtual Tour of Los Santos
Posted by Kirsty at 22:07. Category: General

Feast your eyes on CVG's latest GTA 5 o'clock show installment, with this week featuring the first version of their own community map project.

Tracing back through all the screenshots and trailers released, the team have worked together with the community to pin together locations to the blueprint map preview released on the Special/Collectors edition poster.

Most notably, they've heavily sourced a lot of work from our very own Mapping Los Santos project on GTAForums.
In particular, they appear to have relied on member xrCore to create the surrounding Blaine County. Thanks to the guys at CVG for acknowledging their hard work.

And remember, we're almost certainly not looking at a final version of the map or even the correct shape, but it's still interesting all the same!

It emerged earlier this morning that the Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year edition is being shipped with a GTA V promo card alongside the manual.

It features a new screenshot of three characters about to break into the Vangilico jewellery store, much like the scene from the very first trailer, as well as a short blurb about the game.

Thanks toTheSmutPeddler for updating the community on GTAForums, as well as UprightEddy from Reddit for a clearer version!
