It's times like these... 32 years old, standing in a two block long line at 11:57 at night, waiting for a video game... that you begin to question your place on this earth.

I get the feeling that the people behind me in line don't have to decide between taking a sick day or vacation day tomorrow...

I'm pretty fucking tempted to buy a PS3 or Xbox, and GTA V, just so I can cruise around listening to Flying Lotus' station.

GTA is probably the only video game since N64 that I've actively enjoyed playing.

Hopefully it's still available at Gamestop today. I have a rare day off.

I really like how they improved the location that you start over at if you fail a mission. That's been my biggest gripe with the series.

There's a PS3 GTA bundle in the US, not sure about koala land. Then again, if you get it for 360, you could play with NSW, Imps, and myself.

Rented PS3 GTA5 for 5 nights. Too broke right now to straight up buy it and part of me is still holding out for a next gen release. When I buy it, I'll roll with 360, assuming there isn't a better option available.

I haven't played a GTA game really since Vice City, so this looks ridiculously amazing.

I was the guy buying Pikmin 3 while everyone else got GTA today.

I'll eventually pick it up when the price drops. I still need to finish IV and the DLC. I got really close, but my PS3 data got lost and I haven't come back to it. My backlog is also huge. I'm playing through Darksiders, Fire Emblem Awakening, New Super Mario Bros U, and come back periodically to Skyrim. Tomb Raider when the wife is around because the narrative is more compelling for her as a viewer. At least a dozen more waiting.

And that damn dissertation thing.

Really, I'm mostly biding my time gaming-wise until WWE 2k14 drops, then it will suck hours from my very limited time. Arkham Origins, Last of Us, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Beyond: Two Souls and a few others are relegated to Christmas ideas, then. I'll probably pick up Wind Waker HD, though.

I might look into that

But I suspect I would just prove kill fodder for you three.

Spent about 6 hours with GTA 5.

I've never played a GTA game for more than a few minutes, so...

Mind = blown. An absolute joy. The graphics are *just* good (I don't think it's up to God of War levels, for instance, though it still looks good), but the gameplay, soundtrack, script, voice acting, etc. etc. are all phenomenal. I'm going to have a hard time returning this one on Sunday.

That scene where Michael and Franklin are chasing after his yacht is epic!
