Can those who have it give us an update (perhaps when the Mrs is watching eastenders or zzzfactor)

Didn't someone get stabbed for their copy yesterday - pretty ironic....

People get stabbed every day but that's not a story that panders to wail readers is it. :rolleyes:

That’s the headline, would not surprise me if it was just a standard robbery (they took a phone & watch too) but “yet another robbery” is not as much of a grabbing headline

They really should teach some basic debating / reasoning skills as part of the national curriculum. I genuinely believe teaching kids how to think is both possible and sensible.

I completely agree with what you say.

Though I have no idea what point you are trying to make.

That "people killed each other 5000 years ago, ergo nothing invented in the last 5000 years can be responsible for people killing each other" is a spectacular piece of faulty logic of the type such education might counter.

Don't worry, just follow it up with "I play violent games and haven't killed anyone (yet)" for complete logical superiority...

I played pacman in the 80s and it's not like I ever went on to munch pills and listen to repetitive bleepy music. Oh, hang on... :o

re: stabbing, he was probably a gang member and that happened at 1:20AM.
Nice people get GTA on preorder and at 1:20 they play at home ;)
The game is awesome - they made all the stupid 'social' tasks that I hated in GTAIV optional.
Driving is a pleasure, the storyline, dialogues are just awesome and heists are really cool.
So yeah today will be a short day at the client's ;)

So is it just much grander and nicer looking or are any of the game mechanics different? The driving and shooting elements were always a bit meh in IMO.

Yeah the driving is vastly improved (i.e. easier), shooting is also easy enough with auto aim etc so that both don't get in the way of enjoying the game.
Other than that it's still GTA - huge, open world and very cool story missions and lost of inside jokes, tongue-in-cheek and just good dark humour.
Without spoiling too much, there was one mission which was I think too brutal even for the type of game it is

Phones and watches clearly cause violence and should be banned!!!
