It’s official: Grand Theft Auto V is now officially on shelves after what feels like the longest wait out there for gamers looking to get their hands on Rockstar North’s latest opus, which has had a fantastic response in the wake of the reviews embargo lifting yesterday afternoon. Nines and tens (or the equivalents thereof if rating it using a five-point scale).
My thoughts went live yesterday morning, just a couple of hours before the embargo lifted (Amazon is a lot higher in my good books this week), and needless to say I love what I’ve played so far of the game. And considering tonight’s stream has been bloody great and went without a hitch, lets have another one tomorrow! Of course, most of you will be playing at the game at this point, but why the hell not!
So let’s do it! Shall we meet back here tomorrow (or rather, as it’s now morning, tonight) at 9pm BST? Good. This won’t be a massive stream like what’s just gone down, instead a much shorter 90 minute stream. Here’s the link to follow to.
OH MY GOD, GRAND THEFT AUTO V IS FINALLY OUT NOW, SO WHY NOT WATCH ME PLAY GRAND THEFT AUTO V LIKE AN ABSOLUTE TWAT – DESPITE THE FACT EVERY MAN AND HIS CAT WILL ALREADY HAVE THE GAME NOW AT THIS POINT – TOMORROW AT 9PM BST DIRECTLY ON TWITCH BECAUSE IT WON’T LET ME EMBED THE PLAYER ON WORDPRESS, THE HAIRY FUCK.
In the meantime, you can watch a replay of last night’s extraordinary stream in its entirety right here. All sorts of stuff is covered, from story to side-stuff, including golf, tennis and private viewings in strib clubs from around six hours in. So in the case of the former, beware of spoilers. In the case of the latter, beware of NFSW content.
Otherwise, see you at 9pm for one more stream!
Disclosure: [DO I EVEN NEED TO MAKE THIS DISCLOSURE NOW ANYMORE – I ONLY DID IT TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE FROM ROCKSTAR LEGAL MONKEYS! FINE THEN, ONE MORE TIME…]
This is based on a final PlayStation 3 retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V, *NOT PROVIDED* by Rockstar Games (rather an early dispatched package from Amazon (there is a God) I bought by myself). Grand Theft Auto V releases worldwide tonight on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Hit this to get thoughts on the final game on Xbox 360.
