Living in Liberty City
Grand Theft Auto is just plain ridiculous. Liberty City itself is a monumental achievement, immersing the player inside the most believable "living, breathing" city to date. The hours and hours of radio station programming are back, and now they're accompanied by watchable television. Our dire buddy, Paul Yim, admits to watching over two hours of the stuff, to make sure he didn't miss anything.
It's the layers of the mundane that mess with my head. Your virtual friends in the game will call you up and ask if you'd like to get grab a bite to eat or go bowling. I've racked over an hour just playing pool in GTA IV. I had an odd Matrix kind of sensation when I had to turn Niko's girlfriend down for a date, because I was already on my way to go chill with Niko's cousin. Then I got a game invite to play some Call of Duty 4, which I had to turn down because I was really into the game. Then my wife asks me, "Hey, so, we hanging out tonight?"
When Grand Theft Auto goes MMO, civilization might find itself replaced by Liberty City, Vice City, and Los Santos...

I've had my 360 for a week now. I've clocked in about 3 hours of total play time since I got it back. I really liked what little I managed to play of GTA4, but man do I feel like I've been run ragged.
Mike of Squishy Comics pointed out to me and some of the other Squishy people that Wedge's expression looks a lot like the expression I've had for the past few days. My honest response was that it's probably due to the fact that I was looking at myself in a mirror when I drew the strip. I'm fairly certain that I wouldn't turn down sex though; I'm not quite that tired.
Enjoy the strip.
