    Lawl, even if I put it in & lock it, you'll be able to open it with your finger. At least, I was.

    Are the mobsters in the game Russian or Yugoslavian? Just curious, the name sounds kind of Serbian or Croatian (although written as 'Belić' would make more sense).

    picked up my copy during lunch. A buddy of mine forked over 80 some odd bucks for the collectors edition.

    Best Buy had plenty of copies of the normal, and special editions for people without pre orders.

    Been playing a few.

    I like the addition of the cellphone. Spending time with a girlfriend to miss out on saving a cousin from thugs is something new in the GTAIV series. And Gametrailer's is right about there being no real line between the main plot and side missions. This is starting to feel overwhelming....

    Just picked up the special edition and strategy guide at Best Buy. Can you say $110 of tax deductible awesomeness? \o/

    For the record: I just played for pretty much 9 hours straight. I didn't get any freezes, glitches or any other issues whatsoever. The game ran flawlessly. :p

    That's good to hear was kind of scared about them crashes in the intro cut scenes. I guess I should leave work early and start playing.

    Crashing, nope, haven't seen any. Apart from car crashes, managed to fly out the front windshield a couple times. Had a couple cars blow up, had one car engine die on me(okay the front of the car looked pretty beat up, I lolzed as the car wouldn't start anymore).

    It is bad to have a four star wanted level.

    I still want to see manual transmission cars and fuel consumption in a GTA title. In real life, if I had the ability to hijack any car I pleased, I'm sure that Lambo that I just hitched wouldn't be automatic.

    On another note, I want a more realistic manual transmission model in racing/driving games. In Gran Turismo you simply hit L2 and R2 to to downshift and upshift respectfully. Where's the clutch? Surely not every car has paddle shifters? I propose to simulate a clutch using one of the analog sticks on the controller. You need to hold it down to disengage it, and then slowly release it while balancing it out with the throttle button in order to prevent stalling. And yes, I want the car to stall if I release the clutch too quick or don't give it enough throttle. If it's more fun to do this in real life, then why can't we implement it in game? It would be hilarious in online mode to see the n00bs stalling, bucking, and lurching. :D

    Then they'd give up and you'd have no-one left to play with. ;)

    ^ Microsoft Car Simulator X

    Seriously though, what's up with the handling in this game, any tips? And not just, "use the breaks," cause that crap doesn't work. :p
