GTA V will introduce a musical score for missions

Postby Gambini » 12 Nov 2012, 13:48

"Exactly how we're going to balance between the two we're not entirely sure yet". :?

Only last week, there was a report that melee combat would depend on "the number of resources we have available"

Shouldn't these things be pinned down already?

I hope they put some Eiffel 65 and Pendulumn on the Radio. If not give us the option to use Custom soundtracks like we could on the original Xbox and PC Versions of GTA 3, VC and SA.

I remember San Andreas, blasting out drum and bass while jumping off mount chillad with a tank. Nothing can beat it :D (Play "Watercolour" by Pendulum when doing this.) I might install GTA SA on my PC and do it again :D f**king BAD----ASSSS!

I'm 50/50 on this. On one hand it makes sense, as you sometimes jump in a car whilst on a hectic mission and the Jazz station is on, so having an appropriate score can enhance the experience. On the other hand, the radio does get it right sometimes. I remember doing one mission in GTAIV: LaTD and eventually being chased by the feds with Run to the hills by Iron Maiden playing. Epic!

I think it will work really well but I'm sure there'll be an option to turn it off anyway

Perhaps appropriately timed missions where certain music is playing on the radio stations would work, im with you on this as I have forgotten how many times I have thought 'how cool is this'. But then you get some funny mixes like stealing a tractor while hill billy's are trying to kill you and you got 'Hey Good Lookin' from Hank Williams playing in the background!! Sometimes the most random music makes the scene, does not always have to match the situation perfectly. 'Slow Ride' on a motor cycle or 'Free Bird' when flying a bi-plane in SA come to mind but the score in RDR and the dramatics of Max Payne 3 makes me think the missions that affect the story will be made more dramatic by a score accompaniment. But what can I say about Vice City's music, this was almost perfect.

Both RDR and Max Payne 3 had superb soundtracks, I went ahead and DLed the Max Payne OST because it's brilliant, the RDR OST was great but not the sort of thing I'd listen to. Going along the lines of the score for GTA IV, the opening song, it could be another great soundtrack for GTA V :D

The airport section in Max Payne 3 where the song Tears starts playing worked brilliant.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

Probably the best individual moment in a game this year for me.
It's just a ride.

Brilliant example! Just had to watch that scene in the airport on youtube, that track couldn't have been any more perfect for that section of the game.

That was just R* showing off, wasn't it?

I remember texting Grolsch and another mate asking them I'd they'd got there yet. I couldn't wait for people to play through that section.
