    I can wait for this one to come out. I used to spend tons of quarters playing in the arcade. Orchid was my character, she ripped.

    I've been looking for KI on PC forever. Looks cool, though I wish they left the graphics as is.

    I agree, I am not a big fan of the new graphics. I am hoping it will look a lot better in person than it does coming from a recording on a youtube video.

    Anybody else playing GTA Online and having trouble joining Jobs or getting people to join Jobs that you host? Seems like I have a hard time getting more than one person to join my jobs, which can make some of them pretty damn hard.

    Oh man.....am looking forward to this one. I played all the PC based WC games back in the day. I'm still multiboxing WOW and will switch to this as soon as it goes live. Already considering a Rear Admiral package....this was the last thing I needed to see :lol3

    Played it a bit.

    Very destructible environment. I had a hard time finding anyone to shoot at before getting blown up by APCs, though.

    Rockstar games usually have great music. GTA:San Andreas had a pretty memorable soundtrack. Red Dead Redemption had more of an original score I suppose, and the music in there really helped set the tone of the game.

    Also, Lumines was pretty good (not sure anybody else played that one though :lol3).

    Fallout 3 had a really good score, nailed the atmosphere perfectly.

    FYI to all you GTA 5 players who are doing the GTA Online multiplayer, there is a crew called Adventure Riders (ADVR). I don't know if the person that started it is on this forum or any of the other players but there's only 5 at this time. If any of you want to join up I'm sure you'd be accepted.

    Also, Rockstar will be giving all players in GTA Online $500,000 in game dollars if you play in the month of October. I guess some players lost rank and in-game money due to bugs and this is their way of saying sorry. Bugs are supposed to be fixed also. I have not actually played GTA Online but I made my character and will try it out this weekend.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll look into it.

    As far as $500,000 in that game, that's huge but I suppose they are assuming that some 12 year old stayed home sick and played 24/7 for a week. They might have been able to come up with that much money that way, otherwise I think I made like $70k in a week :lol3

    Also, if there's an ADVR crew, then they need to be a biker gang. I've got my guy all set up with a bobber, leather jacket and half helmet and a garage out in the sticks :D Unfortunately, a motorcycle is kinda a bad choice because if you are in a game with a jackass they can just run you over :cry :lol3

    In Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare there were a few surf instrumentals by a band called Kreeps and one by Misterio. All are really good and you can find them on YouTube.

    Kreeps - Bad Voodoo
    Kreeps - Dead Sled
    Kreeps - Dead Man Walkin
    Misterio - Stinkin' Zombies
