I absolutely love the voiceovers found in trailers for Rockstar's last few major releases. The documentary-like analytic style seems to draw me in better than any regular explosion-showcase type fare.

Yeah, some of that environment destruction looks superb, the windows shattering, the tables crumbling. I'm becoming more and more interested in this.

I wasn't really keen about what R* had done to Max at first, but it is starting to look really good, definitely piqued my interest.

Hopefully they keep the same style of story telling as the first two, that will be key for me I think. Game looks great so far :)

Eeeehh the last game I played that had amazing new technology from Rockstar was L.A Noire, and that was really really underwhelming. Coupled with the fact that they story is just Max falling for a girl and getting betrayed again, I'm keeping this on wait and see.

I saw no "modernized" magically regenerating health, and the popping of pills to heal at 2:54.
So far so good :)

Please let those Fallout3 bullet-cam things just be trailer nonsense...I hate that stuff! or at least let me switch it off.

and thanks for pointing out the pills...thats a good sign :)
