I really like the concept of this series. One to watch I reckon.

I love how you still snuck in the Navy and toast.  Very subliminal.

Jackie Brown, yes! I very well know I'm in the minority on this one, but Jackie Brown is my all time favorite Quentin Tarantino movie.

I just got done watching Jackie Brown, had seen bits but never the whole thing, so a bit was spoiled, but still a great movie.

the melee in gta5 looks a lot better than previous games, its a little more complex too, but mostly the animations have just greatly improved

I hope the game won't let us down. From what I have seen, it will consume my entire winter season. :-D

WHY HAS GAMESPOT BECOME A BRITISH SITE?

it's so much bullshit that take2 is taking down leaked footage of GTA V 

also, if you live in IL there is a store that sells this game in the 15/9 for 330ILS (90$) 

i don't think it's worth the extra price though...

Yeah yeah classic gamespot, having at least 100000 vids about an incoming gta game and/or a blockbuster shooter game, while we totally ignore every but EVERY freakin other release (for instance not even a video review for Rome II, KH 1.5 remix, anything that has to do with nintendo etc).

Keep up the good marketing!!

No offense dude, but are you intentionally going for the "I am the definitive stereotype of a hipster"?

Are you being ironic? Not that there is anything wrong with that.

zzzzzzzzz sorry not a very interesting or funny show. Let's stick to laughing at people's illiterate and brain dead comments on topics nobody really cares about.

If you want to get an idea of what GTA5 will be like to play, I suggest grabbing Midnight Club: Los Angeles and Max Payne 3.

lol at wallace and gromit being in there, wouldn't say it relates too much to GTA, but still awesome!

I would definetely suggest to watch some of Michael Mann's movie, in particular Thief and Heat, but also Collateral and Miami VIce.

Hey Johnny, why won't you do an episode on the waiting for Shenmue 3! I know you love the game and you wait (and hope) for a third as much as any other fan of that series! :D

How can you NOT reccoment Saints Row or Velvet Assasin or Red Dead Redemption or Far Cry 3?

I've been playing Killer is Dead and Resident Evil Revelations during my wait. Both great games.

here's an idea how to get ready - ignore the release and keep playing what you play now...it's what I do, always helps with over-marketed (and possibly overrated) crap like this

I hate how the gamespot player doesn't let you skip forward unless it's loaded.  Sometimes I forget to make it 720p right away and need to switch!  Then I have to watch the whole fucking video again.

@klompa1992 Well, GTA5 sells way more than Rome 2, KH 1.5, or anything that has to do with Nintendo. But hey, maybe we'll have a waiting game for Pokemon X & Y!

@dadkwashere 

That sounds more interesting then watching the waiting game show.

@thorn3000 No need to be a negative Nancy - these are all excellent suggestions. Overmarketed or not, lots of people haven't dipped into any of these, especially Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

@Tremblay343 if you hate it that much and your an evil persons who believes advertisements (which is the reason these sites exist as they fund them) should not be forced upon you i suggest get google chrome and download adblocker then ull never see an ad again. (as long as you can take the ethical complications that come with this choice as it can cause a slowing dying trends of online websites that rely on said advertising)

@Tremblay343 gamespot have a youtube channel, all their vids are mirrored there. I find that youtube also seems to buffer faster.

@billlabowski @assais 

Why has Gamespot always got complete retards in the comment section? Do you have a problem with British people or what?

There is plenty of other shows out there that are made by other Gamespot offices, it is not our fault if you feel that there aren't any!?

I hate comments like this!

@Kh3pra @ziproy You're not joking.  Half the people I know love Tarantino's work. The other half can't stand it. There's no middle ground at all.
