Sounds like fun, but personally I wouldn't buy the expansions because of the sheer price and size. I'm further deterred because when I loaded up GTA IV the other day I found a whole three people on multiplayer, so whatever.

@4 You suck at life

Anyway, this doesn't excite me too much, I will be downloading TBoGT tomorrow morning but I hate these multiplayer events because us Gold members get no bonuses whatsoever, but Silver get a free weekend. Don't we pay for priveleges?

Darth what defines him as sucking at life just cause he is making a statement that the mutiplayer is broken and I agree, it isn't in the best shape of one, Saints Row 2 has a better multiplayer than GTA, but anyways, luckly I know some of the missions from playing it early on, so this should be fun to be playing the multiplayer with people now

#5 You suck at determining who sucks at life

Hopefully this multiplayer will be an upgrade to the one now that is somewhat broken.

Who on earth are Aventura? I may not follow music charts as much as some since they contain so little metal but I normally hear about "chart-topping megabands"

Also, does anyone else feel like they're Cartman waiting for the release of the Wii? "Come on... Come Oooonnnn"
