Vice City for PC

Ah yes, I just found my summertime game to play while I wait for KOTOR.

It's GTA: Vice City - "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Coming to the PC

Today, Rockstar Games announced that the PC version of the global blockbuster, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, is set to hit retail shelves in North America on May 13th and in Europe on May 16th. The PC version will have enhanced features including improved graphics and sound, additional PC controls, as well as several options for players to customize the game. Stay tuned for more details and for the launch of the PC-version dedicated area of the official Vice City website."

Only a month to go! It should be fun!

Yep, I'm definately getting this game. I was pissed it was only on PS2.

Cool, you enjoy those and I'll certainly enjoy terrorizing a city with my chainsaw!

I want to terrorize a city with my chainsaw.....



If my parents saw me playing a GTA game they would terrorize me.

Hope you all enjoy your game.

I on the other hand have a way of hiding the game and besides.. My parents don't really care what games I play anyway. I can even fool them abit as they don't really care.

My parents don't allow me to get any games rated M.

But does that stop me from ordering them? Just tell them the title of the game is GT3: Vice City...it's a racing game

Gotta think...^__^

That's exactly how I found out it was coming out soon! I'd post linkage to it...but they want you to buy the mag so they aren't giving any stories online!

Haha, well, my parents have let me buy Halo and Ghost Recon which are rated M, but they watch the news and have seen the info on GTA.

So it looks like I need to go apartment shopping.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how you can customize the game! I think that will be very interesting!.

Parents....bah, mine never cared as long as they didn't have to see it or deal with it!

Excuse me? Back in them days? Not a wise thing to say 220. To be honest yes......they didn't have the M for mature back in those days.

I knew about this for some time now. Just go to BestBuy.com and up coming games and I knew about it

I also don't have to worry about getting games now that I am 18 but it never was a problem for me anyway. The first gaming system that my parents got me was the N64 so I got the others from my sister and she never gave a damn.

As for terrorizing a city I prefer shooting at Skinnes in Somalia. I just got Delta Force: Black Hawk Down so I've been playing since I got in on Friday. It's a pretty cool game. ^__^

You go ahead and shoot at the skinnies and I'll go with terrorism and terrorize the army! Whatever game that maybe other than CS, I cn't think of one right now...

The graphics look a hell of a lot better than that of the PS2. I'm really looking forward to playing this game.

So you're not getting KOTOR then? o.O

I don't think you understand how fun this game will be.......you don't need a mp for this kind of game. All you do is run around killing people anyways....

KOTOR is an RPG LT, so I'll be sure to buy it. Any shooters that I play must have MP instead of playing the AI all the time.

Can't do anything about work though.

eet's is here too...wow...I thought he ran away after the Mcpee thing. J/k.... whats the topic again....Oh yeah GTA Vice City. I'm stuck on PS2 ...the part where you are in the hellicopter shooting down these drug guys. Its hard to shoot them and control the aim with the controller. I hope they fix this glitch on the computer version for everyone's sake.
