GTAV Official Site Update: Security, Fitness & Entertainment

Posted on September 6 2013, 11:34am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

The Los Santos & Blaine County Visitors Travelogue has just been updated with special new sections highlighting why this west coast destination is a fitness buff's paradise, along with an overview on law enforcement and security for your peace of mind, and previews of the exciting music and television entertainment in store this fall...
 
The Los Santos Police Department is famous for tackling crime in the most aggressive and unhinged way possible, while private security firms like Gruppe 6 and Merryweather Security have a financial interest in saving your assets. Sponsored by Ammu-Nation – Protecting Your Rights.
 
Vanity is at an all-time high and we're an athlete and fitness buff's paradise. Fancy a bit of tennis? We've got world class courts and stiff competition. Into cycling? Grab a bike for a lovely ride along the Los Santos beachfront or a punishing path through the mountains and hillsides of Blaine County. Or take part in a challenging triathlon of swimming, running and biking designed to pit egomaniacs against each other in a test of who exercises professionally the best. Sponsored by EGO CHASER Energy Bars - an energy bar that's all about you. Watch the commercial!

For those stuck in traffic, tune in to the Los Santos radio dial for a wide range of music styles to choose from - check out radio station previews of Radio Los Santos and Channel X plus Rebel Radio, East Los FM, West Coast Classics, Fly Lo FM and Vinewood Boulevard Radio. Stay tuned for more radio station previews to come.
In the Home Entertainment section, you can watch a special preview of CNT's Fall TV Line Up, with clips from The Underbelly of Paradise, Impotent Rage and Moorehead Rides Again as well as a sneak preview of Kung Fu Rainbow Lazer Force, the upper-middle class super hero team coming to Weazel TV’s family values entertainment programming this fall.
 
 
This week's update also includes brand new artwork of Lester (who you might have noticed a few times in the latest Official Trailer and in an awkward moment during the GTA Online Gameplay Video) added to the Art & Downloads page - plus 8 new screenshots of surf, skies, racing, riding and gunning all added to the Screens page.

    Rockstar, please take time to read and understand because this isn't funny at all.
    1) we earn hardly any cash from missions compared to how much stuff cost in Los Santos. It's a joke.
    2) When we manage to save our hard earned cash some tool comes along, blows up our car and they haven't got money to pay for it, that comes out of our cash, which is actually pathetic! - do something about it please.
    3) Why can't we interact with the hot dog stands anymore? To replenish our health? - Burger shot or something needed.
    4) We can play tennis and golf, why not basket ball and other sports? Would be great if you could.
    I'm not just speaking for myself on this, I know many other gamers are getting annoyed at this fact aswell, especially 1 and 2! Please do something about this,
    Thanks.

            This is one of the biggest disappointments in gaming history for how big this game is and how very much it lacks in content and how many problems it has. The "masterpiece" we were promised turned out to be anything but. If you want to read more about just

                Please add working out, (push ups, chin ups, lifting weights etc.) shooting hoops (We want to use those nice basketball courts!), eating, it sucks always running around with 50% health and having to go home to get it to 100. Miss those hot dog stands from GTA IV. The ones on V we can't interact with!

                We need to be ale to take off shoes ( to RP on beach, and go swimming. Who goes swimming in shoes? Not great for role play and realism!). The characters can do all of the fun crap, but when you click on them they stop. I found Franklin working out doing push ups, chin ups etc, eating chips at home, ironing, leaving buildings that I can't go into etc.

                Michael is always staring off into the sky, or out being really boring whenever I switch to him. Trevor is usually passed out drunk, or out fighting someone, he's hilarious. I beat the story mode twice in about 4 days. Had to restart because mission reply screewed me on the last mission!

                Need to have the option to save the outfits you create. Take off the ability for them to change their own clothes (so annoying, they always take off their accessories, and most of the time their choices suck) Add jewelry, I want to wear nice watches and maybe a wood necklace or nice herringbone. Once I got Frank dress and took him to the mission, in the cut scene he suddenly had on a watch and bracelet. After the mission they were gone.

                Need more hairstyles ( better fades high and low, short curls full and option fade, dreads, preppy styles for mike, and more fun stuff for trev. Need more facial hair, thinner goatees, mustache with chin hair and thin sideburns that connect to the chin hair or thick sideburns, and more tattoos. Let us go into more of those awesome buildings. ( the mall, jewelry store, restaurants etc.) Put the convenient stores on the map, it took forever to find one! Have the option to add food/snacks to your weapons wheel. It will be easier to get your health back up after getting into sticky situations. Add these things and this game will be 10/10!!!

                  @King_O_187
                  Yes we are on the same page,I absolutely hate how we cannot visit a burger shot and replenish our health,and the stores you can enter are so scarce it pisses me off,I love gta V I think it is the best one yet,but I don't understand their 2 steps forward and 1 step back method. Food was already part of the game since San Andreas,Maybe Vice City I don't remember. Why take out burger shot? And why show Franklin leaving a club or bar we can't even enter?It's almost a insult. I don't know much about developing,I do develop websites so I do know it is hard work. However the 'Eating out feature' is already designed so it isn't to much work to simply put it in the game. Since it is already designed they could essentially name it whatever they want. I expected us to be at least able to walk into a business we OWN at the very least.

                  They finally brought back a mass of clothing to choose from,yet their is no Dedier Sachs or Pro Laps....-____- SIGH
                  Also,the cars I store in my home garage seem to be disappearing and this really pisses me off. After I spend a million dollars on a car and 50,000 in customization I think I had enough. Speaking of garage space,why can't we just park our CAR in the DRIVEWAY IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE. WHYYYYY???WHYYYYYY??? I mean what is the big idea what is the issue Rockstar? I mean with all due respect my heart goes out to you and all but I am just saying,do your developers even PLAY GRAND THEFT AUTO?

                  I was surprised to see you couldn't call for 'backup' or 'goons' since it was a feature that goes back to Grand theft auto 3...(If I remember correctly,maybe it was a cheat.)

                  To close this argument,all I am saying is that. You added tennis,golf,yoga,car customization(which isn't knew),real estate,Animals,pets,yet we are still not happy simply because you have shown to slack in a few areas and they do look as if they were deliberate. It just looks like your team got close to finishing and they threw their hands in the air like "WOO,FINISHED" Brad calls up his friends like "JUST FINISHED DEVELOPING GTA V WOW ITS AMAZING BUT WE TOTALLY CUT SOME CORNER,BUT WE ARE STILL GOING TO SELL MILLIONS THE FIRST WEEK."

                  And why in the hell can't we walk in stores with a gun?How am I suppose to rob the store? I have to open the door pull my gun out while I am outside and point it at the cashier. And than shoot the register open...SIGH

                  You see I am not only upset you're took a few basic elements out of the game,but that these are all just what I said. BASIC,BASIC,BASIC,BASIC!!! These are little packages with big things inside of them,they have impacted the game greatly. Words couldn't even explain the feeling I got when I went to get a hair cut and their was only 4 different styles. Wait,I digress,my words were exactly. "What the f**k...Unbelievable" Truly breathtaking.

                  Does anyone else hate that you can buy chest tattoos, but there is no way possible to take your shirt off? Overall GTA V is a great game, but this is a huge letdown. Hopefully, R* will patch this up soon.

                          Hat's off to Rockstar for creating this MASTERPIECE. I'm not even 30% into the storyline and TREVOR PHILLIPS is sincerely the BEST* character to ever star in a Grand Theft Auto series, and he rivals some of the greats who are out there now and have been for years. His lines are SO hilarious that even my dad laughs whenever he happens by and leans in to see what I'm doing. (MY DAD HATES VIDEOGAMES) He'll be like, "Gabby, what are you doing now?" And I'll tell'em and he'll just lean in the doorway (of my small berth) and tune in. And we both just LAUGH! .....

                          Game of The Year!!! No questions asked.
