New GTA: San Andreas Trailer Released

Zonk posted more than 9 years ago | from the i-still-want-lazlow dept.

PlayStation (Games) 44

Thanks to Gamespot for the heads up on the newly released San Andreas trailer. It features, among other things, landmarks, dialogue, combat, and a new game feature: parachuting. The trailer is set to a song with explicit lyrics, so viewer discretion is yadda yadda...

THE CHILDREN! (5, Funny)

opposume (600667) | more than 9 years ago | (#10575887)

OH SWEET JESUS! WON'T SOMONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN? Yet another game for people to boycott and claim is deconstructing the fabric of society. *shakes head*

Why do people seem to lose their sense of sarcasm when they get /. mod points?? I wish we could metamod individual posts, scoring parent -1:flamebait is asinine.

WormholeFiend (674934) | more than 9 years ago | (#10575989)

I hope there are going to be bonus points/cash/statistics attached to parachuting...

And not just from aircraft... BASE JUMPING YEA!

Well, if it doesn't have it, I'm pretty sure GTA: The Next One will have it, since it seems many people really noticed that part of the trailer.

I just want to drive the combine harvester. And the bulldozer sounds interesting as well. And thank god the boats won't be such deathtraps as before. You got in the boat but you never got out. Either the boat exploded with you inside or you missed the shore when jumping out.

More than just the trailer released (3, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#10575995)

This comes on the heels of the game being released on the 'net as well.

GTA and the Sims (5, Interesting)

Acidic_Diarrhea (641390) | more than 9 years ago | (#10575997)

I'm really excited about this game. I think one of the nice additions is the weight change that your character can go through in the game. Apparently, if you eat junk food all day and never work out [just drive from place to place in other people's cars] you'll gain weight and become a fat mess. Pretty funny.

It seems like more and more, GTA and The Sims is set to converge into a game where you buy a house, decorate it, and kill people in the streets. Time to build a new garage!

I'm surprised you can enjoy a game made by a bunch of liberals.

Re:GTA and the Sims (3, Funny)

Jimmy The Leper (734441) | more than 9 years ago | (#10577018)

Are you crazy? Liberals make awsome computer games. Conservatives should stick to what they are good at: action movies!

Re:GTA and the Sims (4, Funny)

Txiasaeia (581598) | more than 9 years ago | (#10577303)

Lol... the feature you're most interested in is your character gaining weight. Perhaps you'd be more interested in something that skips the violence and gets straight into what you're interested in? [amazon.com]

Re:GTA and the Sims (-1, Troll)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#10580391)

Where did I say it was the feature I was most interested in you fucking moron? I noted that it was an added feature over previous versions of GTA and that it was an interesting addition. Why don't you go fucking kill yourself?

How am I a troll? Is it because I am smarter than you? If so, everyone on Slashdot is a troll by your definition except you. Congrats on "saving" your virginity for so long, dick-licker.

You call that a song? (-1, Flamebait)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#10576256)

It's just some guy talking fast. If I talk fast, is that singing? NO! You have to modulate the pitch, otherwise it's just a rant. God rap sucks

Swimming? (2, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#10576265)

Forget parachuting, will they be adding the ability to swim this time? Or will they continue to treat water as some ultra-toxic substance that paralyzes and kills you the second you fall into it?

Re:Swimming? (5, Informative)

Acidic_Diarrhea (641390) | more than 9 years ago | (#10576340)

Yes, there is swimming in the new GTA. It also counts as exercise and makes your character stronger.

No more toxic water!

It's already been announded [ign.com] that yes, you can swim in GTA:SA.

Re:Swimming? (1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#10578865)

Good. I haven't been following this game much at all; I just remember my frustration in GTA3 and VC whenever I'd accidentally fall off a dock or boat or something and immediately drown.

Hmmmm (4, Interesting)

Lord Kano (13027) | more than 9 years ago | (#10576279)

Makes me want to fire up Vice City just to stay in practice.

I like the idea of having a parachute. It'll make running from the cops more interesting.

> I like the idea of having a parachute. It'll make running from the cops more interesting.

Yeah, I can see it now...

"Suspect is on the roof of the Heinz building, running fast."

"He jumped! Wait.. there's a parachute! He's headed down into the mall on 5th street."

Anybody have a link to the trailer... (1)

Parachuting... Maybe? (1)

OriginalSpaceMan (695146) | more than 9 years ago | (#10580375)

Based on that trailer. It seems that the ability to parachute is tied to that mission. As in: Get on play, Do thing, Jump out back. Cut scene: You, jumping and parachuting. Personally, I hope that's not true. I want to grab a parachute and use it as a way to escape something or whatever. I'm just saying what it looks like.

Longer trailer (0)

cbx_cbx (787665) | more than 9 years ago | (#10580799)

Theres a longer and interactive trailer in

www.suprnova.org / Games / PS2

And it requires a PS2 to run. ;)

Where is the physics (1)

JPyObjC Dude (772176) | more than 9 years ago | (#10581243)

I really did enjoy GTA. Actually all my brothers love it and are sickened by the fact that we liked it.

I hope these guys spend more time on the physics engine though. If they could get to 70% of Driver3's physics I'd be happy.

I really just love getting a fast car and driving (running over people is secondary).

How can this even make sense?

"What's that? Looks like a game where you go around killing people, and which focuses on the glorification of the criminal, gangster lifestyle? Cool. Turn up the volume so I can hear!"

How much free advertising does ./ want to give these companies?

HINT HINT HINT

A *TRAILER* being released is NOT NEWS. A *game* ACTUALLY being released (not 'possibly being released soon according to some guy on a bulletin board' or 'being pre-loaded on Steam') is BARELY news.

I mean, how dumb are we? The news may as well say:

ARockStarEmployee writes: The Internet is abuzz with news of the forthcoming release of Rockstar Entertainment's latest blockbuster game, GTA: San Andreas (tm)! Although it's unclear at present whether the game will break the all time sales record set by The Sims (tm), what is clear is that players will have a blast in the totally new, 3D ultra realistic simulated mayhem of GTA: San Andreas (tm)! Early reviews have already given an unprecedented 101 out of 100 to GTA: San Andreas (tm)! So don't delay, read the article and become a witless pawn of the game marketing machine today!!!

A trailer eh? (3, Funny)

gozu (541069) | more than 9 years ago | (#10584006)

And to celebrate this joyous occasion, a torrent for the full game has appeared on suprnova :p
