A new installment of the Grand Theft Auto series always seems to get the industry buzzing, and many of us here at Shacknews couldn’t be more excited for the series fifth numbered installment. If you’re like us, you’ve already watched Grand Theft Auto 5‘s second trailer until it’s seared into your brain, but don’t let that stop you from taking one more gander. This time out, Shacknews Daily’s Ryan Calavano and I sit down to dissect some of the trailer’s finer points, similar to the breakdown of the first trailer when it was released. As residents of Los Angeles, we’re both ridiculously excited to wreak havoc in a satirical version of our native city when the game comes out this spring.
In the breakdown, we point out the Los Santos versions of some real world locations, discuss some of the game’s revealed details like the touted “character-switching” mechanic, and touch on how some of Los Angeles culture is represented. Enjoy!
