Any news for Gta V pc version guys? Is there any chance to apear this year?

Apparently coming this month as far as I'm aware.

Also, finally found a thread I can get into. I've pretty much ditched consoles for PC now, so much better in general. Just picked up Shadow of Mordor for a £11, thanks CDkeys, and I must say that game is immensely fun.

Just wondering if anyone picked up The Forest at all. I've been enjoying building little camps and trying to survive the mutant... zombie... whatever they are. And DayZ, lots and lots of DayZ.

GTAV is April 14th but "PRE-PURCHASE BY MARCH 31 AND GET $1,200,000 IN-GAME PLUS A BONUS $300,000." Looks like an absolute joke.

Masters of Orion doesn't like to play on my computer...and the interface is different than I remember. It seems to have gotten an update since last year...which might explain why it's not working now. :(

I'm enjoying Guild Wars 2 with its combat a bit more now. I've gotten the hang of combat and dodging a bit more, but I've still got room for improvement. And while I am enjoying more, I do still wish it was more like a normal action game. I have no idea how a game like this ever got away with a subscription fee with combat like this, especially when it was probably more basic.

@Jaz007 - Guild Wars 2 never had a subscription Fee. Sure you're not talking about Tera?

Also, I need to get Guild Wars 2 someday. It always looked fun, and I keep hearing good things. If it was on Steam, I'd grab it, but as it stands, I have to go through Amazon or the official site, and the price doesn't drop that often. No way am I spending more than $20 on a PC game. (I already regret it with Wasteland 2. I'm sure it's good, but by the time I get around to it, it'll have been half off on Steam 3 times...)

@Caniswolfred My bad, I meant MMOs in general. I didn't make very clear (at all) looking back at what I said though.

Thank goodness Fallout 3 is so moddable. Ended up downloading a fix that made it playable on my Windows 8 computer. No messing with files (other than what the instructions told me to do, and then it was simple drag-and-drop and setting up compatibility mode for two programs). I'd jump right in, but I have to make a new file, and the beginning's a tad sloggish, in retrospect. Good for establishing atmosphere, but bad for repeat playthroughs...

Yea. games like Fallout and moreso the Elder Scrolls series are infinitely better on PC due to the modding you can do. The ES series is so horribly bland otherwise.

As far as GTA 5 goes, I assume the delay from March to April was due to Heists finally coming out in online mode. So one would assume the PC version will launch with heists included.

I personally can't wait for it. I always get the GTA games on consoles first, then on PC to get the superior (and mod-able) experience. Plus I look forward to trying out GTA online, since I could not get it to work on my PS3 (kept freezing up in the intro, and Rockstar Tech Support were of no help and were pretty stupid overall)

I actually don't use any gameplay mods and still greatly enjoy their games. I mean I'm glad Bethesda readily enables people who are far better programmers than they are to be able to fix their crap.

Well it isn't just the gameplay mods, but GFX mods that make the game look way better than it would have otherwise. Weather effects, lighting effects, water effects, sound effects, the list is endless really, and that's just about cosmetic stuff and not things that actually effect the gameplay.

I don't use those either...I think I tried a Nude pack for Oblivion though...which broke the game...

In fact, I break PC games a lot when I try to mess with anything involving the code. This is the first time in a while I actually succeeded in unbreaking a game...

Yea I seem to remember some company that released a broken game, and came out with a statement that it would take months for them to fix it. Then some random guy fixed it in a day and posted an unofficial patch. Made them look like complete morons.

I want to say it was Ubisoft, but I can't recall for sure.

Reminds me of how Dark Souls for PC was fixed by a modder (Durante) 1 hour before the game came out.
EDIT: Apparently if was actually around 3 days before.

You have to remember though, modders don't have to worry as much about something going wrong.

Yet when they make something it tends to work. Including their unofficial patches to broken games.

That used to apply to Nintendo but now they are as bad as the rest of the competition when it comes to shipping broken games that have to be patched.

??? What game from Nintendo has been so bad that it needed a patch at launch? especially as bad as others when they need a GB or more for the patch?

I'm not sure how this relates to what I said. I meant that it's reasonable that official patch can take a bit longer than a mod patch. I'm not defending the release of broken games though.
