Muse: Grand Theft Auto 5 Game Launch

Can’t wait to take the new Grand Theft Auto 5 game for a spin this weekend. Even though it was 5 years in the making, I’m still surprised that Future Shop opened at midnight Tuesday morning just to release it. Probably just their way of ensuring they got an unfair share of the launch distribution quantities to sell. Who says crime doesn’t pay.

Muse: Grand Theft Auto 5 a.m. Heist

I was looking forward to the release of the new Grand Theft Auto 5 video game this Spring … until the real-life bad guys showed up at 5 a.m. last Saturday and stole the car right off our driveway, while we slept. Wow! If you’ve got that kind of commitment and can handle that kind of pressure, why not just get a real job?

I hope the new Grand Theft Auto game comes out with different role-playing options: this time around, I’d rather play as a righteous undercover cop, living by his own rules of justice.

On Feb. 7, one week after we settled with our insurance company, the police found our Rav 4 – half-way across the country in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It was on a container ship bound for some overseas destination. Feels good to know that at least this time, crime didn’t pay.

On a related note, Rockstar Games unexpectedly announced a 6-month delay in the launch of Grand Theft Auto 5 … adding undercover cop role-playing functionality, no doubt …
