I like my games as brutish and misogynistic as humanly possible.

Well made trash is still trash.

Vice City didn't have TV, but it did have many hours of original radio programming, including political talk radio.

Yeah, I was like "What the fuck?" with the driving, then I jacked a sports car and it drove like a dream. Quit stealing hoopties!

The comedy shows on the TV are impressive, in fact everything is impressive about the game. The fighting system is kind of weird, it is no longer a 'mash all buttons to knock em out' thing, more like an actual fight.

Detail is incredible and I find it hard to actual do the missions.

I'm only about six hours in (work and kids). That said, it's brilliant. Though I do miss the soundtrack from San Andreas.

I don't think they'll ever top OG Loc.

I'm having a tough time understanding what the characters are saying with the accents (esp. when wifey tries talking to me. Huh? What?), and I agree with Mike that I miss the SA soundtrack. I'm not that into Russian techno, I've now learned. Bleh: well made trash is art.

The six-legged sock worm with a white-and-red tumor haunts my every waking thought.

I'm glad to hear they got the feedback loops working for things like driving, but hope this doesn't mean messing up on attacking the Fremont Rocket to

The Bas Rutten TV show was hilarious. He's sort of mocking his own video he did a few years back--do a search on Youtube for Bas Rutten, and watch the Street Defense video he did. The guy is hilarious. "Gonna bounce his head on the table...ten times or something..."
