          I wish I could buy this, unfortunately, I lost my job this month. Maybe if I get my first salary from my new job... Looking forward to this.

          This is much better than bullet time on any CoD series. CoD started copying bullet time on Modern Warfare 2.

                          Will we have to use Games for Windows Live, even if we buy the game through Steam?

                            @Badgett6021133 Thanks

                            @djvicboya Yep, some environments will destruct, while others like concrete pillars will crumble a bit but still provide solid cover, check out this video at the 2:02 mark:

                                i know there will be destructible environments but will there be bullet penetration like if i want to shoot a guy behind say a wooden object or will it just break ?

                                      This is the most realistic video game I have seen in my life! Congrats R* on your new created Masterpiece.

                                        Hey Rockstar,
                                        I'm trading in my Call of Duky game to get this one, I love third person game's way more than first person.
                                        You get a better view, a better feel for your surrounding's, and a better glance at your character..

                                        I hope multiplayer character's are customizable.

                                          @VinnieGognitti0 There are a lot of weapons in single player and multiplayer, and we certainly won't be revealing all of them before the game comes out, you'll be able to discover them for yourself next month!
