Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Grand Theft Auto V's Trevor Had Trouble Playing His Own Game

Posted on Friday, September 27 @ 22:00:00 Eastern by

In an interview with GQ, the voice actors behind Michael, Trevor, and Franklin reflected on the epic scale and worldwide impact Grand Theft Auto V has had, but not without revealing a little difficulty in getting the game to work.

When asked about playing Grand Theft Auto V as themselves, Shawn Fonteno (who plays Franklin in the game) admitted that he's lived on both sides of the law and remarked that he feels "like changing [his] name to Franklin", but it was Steven Ogg, voice and visage of Trevor that revealed he got a little frustrated even starting GTA V up.

Like many gamers out there, the man behind Trevor Phillips got a little frustrated by the lengthy installation Grand Theft Auto V requires before play can begin on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. GQ interviewer Scott Neumyer even notes that Ogg "slips into full on Trevor mode" at this point in the interview:

Okay, we’ve got 2.7 gigabytes, gigabang, gigawhatever. What the fuck is this?! Okay there’s two discs. Put this one in first. Okay. What the fuck? Where to load it? I don’t know. Load it onto here. Manage storage. Fuck! I just want to see the opening. I’m going to cover his face and ears if it starts with Trevor jumping on a skull screaming, “Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!”—he’s not going to hear that…but he’s so excited, he just wants to see the opening (or anything).

So I pick up the Bat phone and I call Rod [Edge - the director]. We FaceTime so he can help me figure this out. It was such a great scene. I’m in the country house with my son and we’re FaceTime-ing with the director of the game and his son, who’s an actual gamer, and we’re getting instruction on how to start the game. I’d show him the screen and he’d walk me through it. It was such a beautiful moment.

In the rest of the interview, Luke, Fonteno, and Ogg (Michael, Franklin, and Trevor respectively) relate how the game has changed their lives and what work they hope to do following the massive, record-breaking release of Grand Theft Auto V.
