How do you feel about If we create a GWJ gang, do we end up roleplaying being 'Gangsta'. I dont think i have acquired the right vocabulary. maybe I could just come up with 5 key phrases or so that cover every situation... Kinda like that old MMORPG 'bot' joke.?

Thugs With Jobs?

Thanks to you bastards, I'll be picking this one up after work.

Any mini-games in this one? That's one of the things I loved about San Andreas. You could play Pool, Arcade Games, you could train, dance and whatnot. Variety is fun!

Awesome!
I haven't found any mini-games that aren't task-based yet.
But to be fair so far I've just been running around causing as much havoc as I can. It's harder than you might think! I've only managed to get up to 3 stars, mostly because my damage potential is limited by only wielding a pistol, baseball bat, and my anemic pythons. My SEXY anemic pythons. I'll have to figure out how to take screencaps of my character, it's truly frightening how much he looks like a PE teacher I once had. *shudder*
On that note, if the next GTA doesn't feature Table Tennis I will be VERY disappointed!

EDIT and shouldn't it be "Gangstas With Jobs?"

Geez, i finally get Chromehounds from gamefly, and now everyone on the site is gang bangin. Cant keep up with you guys!

We'd need to come up with a gang name.

My vote: Icy Hot Goodjaz

We should stick with the GWJ theme and go wtih Gangstas With Jobs...

I think SwampYankee would appreciate Crispy Sh*t Gangstas.

Awesome Feature: Parking a car in your garage adds it to a list. I can 'recall' any car in my list from the front of a one car garage! That means the Ambulance, Five-O, Quota, and 12 other cars are parked in my 'Garage of Holding.'

I also saw a video where a guy trashed his customized car, went to a repair shop, paid $500, and got a brand new copy of it.

This sounds freaking awesome. I loved collecting cars in GTA but I never actually used them because I was afraid of them exploding or vanishing and being gone forever.

Yeah, Gangstas With Jobs respects the accronym, sold. And that's Mista Green to yo bitches!

Let's just hope there isn't a lottery system to win Bling or something.

How about Lobsta's Mobstas?

*punches Green*

*shudder*

..I guess I'll pick it up on the way home.

We're canonizing already? Awesome!

Hmmm...Lobsta's Mobstas has a nice ring to it. Instead of "Gangsters With Jobs" we could go more gangsta with names like GWJ posse, Gangstaz Wit Jobz, G.W.J 4 L1F3, etc.

Someone should start a name poll...

I like Gangstas With Jobs. But, that's just me. I tried going to the Gangs section last night, and it never would connect. Anyone else try actually creating a gang? So, who wants to set it up?

Also, 93_confirmed, I tried adding your gamer tag from your profile, and Xbox.com says it doesn't exist.

Picking it up on the way home, count me in for some "Gangstaz wit Jobz" action!

Rented this last night as another effort to get me out of my 5-month long "I don't care much about video games phase." I'm somewhat intrigued but also found that the "Gangs" section would not load and I couldn't create/join parties. Could have been a NAT setting issue, or perhaps the servers weren't up to snuff.

Damn you Gamefly for not having more copies of the game. I have two games out right now and Saints Row has a 'short wait'. I'm really drooling to get my hands on this game but would rather buy it with my Gamefly discount then pay the $60.

You can order it from Outpost.com for $50 with free shipping. :D

I hate you.

I wouldn't've bought it if Certis hadn't mentioned this deal. Only fair I pass on the "favor."

Whee! I look just like my New Thug. I'm glad they put white hair in there as I went prematurely gray at 13.

willpower... slipping...

Just wanted to throw a torch on Souldaddy's gasoline soaked wood pile...

Mine should be in the mailbox waiting for me when I get home.

...and my copy is shipping today!

You're all evil.

So where do I hide this game on the way into the house tonight? Those damn "glowing green" Xbox game boxes just attract too much spousal attention! She's already looking at me strange with the recent Chromehounds and BFMEII purchases...

Crackdown...

Crackdown is coming...

Crackdown will bring the salvation from the pimps and ho's...

Crackdown shall set us free! Faith and willpower alone will guide you on the right path. Just hang in there my brothers... stay strong, don't give in to the callings of evil...

Crackdown is coming!

Crackdown should... like... advertise. Souldaddy telling me about it the other night was the first I'd ever heard of it and it comes out in 2 months. I knew about Saints Row nearly a year ago.

I forsee a quality game that underperforms due to lack of knowledge/interest about it unless they release a demo or start the PR machine soon. You'd think these companies would be taking notes about what successful games are doing pre-launch to make themselves successful.

The over-the-top nature of what I've seen from Crackdown has me interested.

Of course, I'm quite close to trading in two games at EB for the right to purchase Saints Row for $9.95. Maybe I'm an easy sell.

I blame all of you.

We're the Pusherz with Jobz

I think it's not being advertised because it is going to quietly slip back to a winter or spring 2007 release (no, there hasn't been an official delay, that's just my guess).

Crackdown looks good, but what has me concerned is they're bragging about how it's being designed by the creator of Grand Theft Auto... Except this is the guy that did GTA before it really came into its own.

Crackdown has slipped to March of 2007. Someone described the game as a cross between Mercenaries (do missions the way you want to) and the Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction (superpowers) as this video suggests. Someone was telling me you can co-op with a friend, he gets in a car and you throw the car into the enemy's fortress with him in it. I'm soooo there.
