I normally wouldn’t post…

…with anything related to Grand Theft Auto. I’m just not a cheerleader for the genre.

Seriously.

But the new trailer?

It’s a blatant nod to this.

Respect, lads. Curious to see if the artsy/filmic cred carries over into the game itself…

Then you’ll have my attention, most assuredly

    GTA Vice City had elements from Scarface and Vice City. It wouldn’t surprise me if they did carry something over like they’ve done with their past games (drawing inspiration from pop culture). But it wouldn’t surprise me either if they didn’t.

    Gameplay wise, I’m sure I won’t be all that impressed. But after dealing with a computer graphics course this semester, wow. Visually, that is a damn impressive game. Knowing how that is all done really makes me appreciate it.

    God do I hope that nothing from that movie carries over to the game. Seeesh it was just hours of time lapse and slow motion photography with phillip glass music in the background. Also

    Actually gameplay is the best thing about GTA series, with the graphics coming in a distant second. So I don’t know if they’re trying something different here. Kinda hope not.

    Koyaanisqatsi is probably one of my favourite movies ever. I really wanted to see the two sequels, but I’ve never been able to find them.

    Hey at least I can understand basic pseudocode.

    Okay there’s something up with the software here. God this is why I hate HTML.

    I guess I should have said I don’t care much for the gameplay. I do think it’s unique and it’s diversity is definitely what carries it. Also, they probably are trying to make the game look fantastic considering this will be the engine for GTA until the next round of systems.

    But video games are all about the gameplay….. That’s why they’re video games…

    Netflix, as always, is an excellent resource for hard-to-find movies/TV shows.

    Yeah Sag’…and if you’re ever in Van, Videomatica and lots of the little cult shops have ‘em. Hell, you can even buy them as a set on Amazon if you dig!
