    How will you be spending tomorrow? (The release of GTA IV)

    As most of you probably know, tomorrow is the day of the release of GTA IV.

    I expect many will be missing work or school to be playing it.

    Share your plans, thoughts, expectations and whatnot.

    Personally, I'm skipping school tomorrow and the day after (Yeah I know. I have no life.)
    I'm going to the store two hours before it opens just to make sure I'll get my hands on a copy.
    Then I plan on buying four large bottles of coke, tons of chips and then barricade myself in my basement for the next six days (That's how long until I have to be back at school, although I work two of those days.)

    Man, I'm such a nerd.

    Can't wait.

    I reserved my copy and I'll pick it up and crack it open during my lunch hour. Then I'll cry 'cause I have to go back to work... then I'll play it after work for like and hour and then I'll cry 'cause I got deadlines on some freelance work...

    which one of us will be having more fun is debatable.

    Got it yesterday and I'm finally going to actually play it this afternoon. Wasn't going to play it yesterday because I was watching Goodfellas (which, by the way, is a f*cking amazing movie).

    As to the OPs question, it didn't really change my day all that much (in a way that was expected) save I had to go and shell out for a PS3...thanks to the roommate. Didn't play it till well into the evening and was kind enough (before the addiction set in) to let the GF have a whirl for a bit.

    Spent all day today playing it.

    Seems its gonna be as good as i expect it to be, hope it will anyway...
    I try to be picky about games (last was DMC4,disapointed by it) i just cant afford to buy many even for testing sake.
    And btw what more is there in the collector version?

    Yup, I’m spending my nights in liberty city. Is true what they say, this game is pretty awesome!!! Even just leaving the game’s radio station on while I sketch is lots of fun. Great stuff

    my brother bought this game one tuesday and called me at work. When I got home I was so excited I ran down the stairs (our xbox is set up in the basement). Unfortunatly I slipped and fell on my ass on the way down the stairs, now my tailbone is F*cked up so I can't even sit down when I play it, I spent four hours playing while lying on the couch.

    totally worth it

    There are some flaws in the gameplay, but overall it's a very good game. The main character looks like a exact copy of a guy I'm working with. Even the accent does match, since he's talking English with a Polish accent. What are the odds

    The best parts of the game are, in my opinion, the inside jokes. From the hilarious radio shows to the funny internet sites, It's all well done.

    I laughed my ass of when I saw this 'parody' on the Wacom tablets. Great to know that even Liberty City knows its digital artists...
