Did Rockstar say anything about lying to us regarding being able to climb poles?

Seems like the large amount of climbable stuff does not exist. I thought we'd be able to climb telephone poles, lamp posts, etc. Bull crap. I decided to get the PS3 version at last, but I think now I'm regretting it as I have to constantly adjust the TV display settings and the PS3 ones to avoid playing as if I was blind.

Poseidon417 is an unknown quantity at this point
A lot of stuff they promised never made it to the game. It's unfortunate.

Not everything can make it into a game, especially a highly anticipated game with a deadline.

tbh I don't see the point in climbing a pole... So to me it isn't a very big loss. I'm just happy by the fact that climbing ladders are included in the game. Unlike a ladder, telegraph poles lead you no where.

If there are poles on the sides of some buildings, that does kinda equal a bit of a loss. If you mean just climb a phone pole, that would be a little... odd. Where did they confirm you could climb poles?

In my post I was talking about Poles as in telegraph poles.

Magazines said that climbing telegraph poles were included in the game. What I am saying, is it is kind of pointless to climb a telegraph pole on the sidewalk.

Poles as in drainpipes that are on the side of buildings, which what you mean Zidane, then that is a loss not being able to climb it. When I first played GTA IV I tried it and was surprised I couldn't.

Seriously, you try and assemble a team who can fix up GTAIV in 4 years.
I dare you to.
You wouldn't even get around finishing Broker and Bohan.

Before you even complain about 4 years of making the game, have you discovered every aspect of the game?
Every random character? Have you shot all 200 flying rats? Done all races? Helitours? Found the easter eggs?

4 years is only 1460 days from idea to product to please a shitload of gamers.
Now if you completed the game 100% (which, in my opinion, still isn't the 100% you'll be going for) you'll find out where four years of game development went.

Oh yeah, and then there's the multiplayer.

Drain pipes etc in real life don't hold human weight very well, the clips used to secure them buckle under very little pressure

I couldn't agree more, I'm amazed at the size and scope. I'm only 22% through the game so far but I really enjoy taking my time and trying to soak it all in.

I've also done a couple of good marathon MP sessions with friends, it's just awesome.

I was quite disappointed with the lack of enterable interiors as promised but here's hoping a patch will allow these to be open.

*fingers crossed*

Since they made it so you need to press the "enter\exit vehicle" button to climb something, having too many things to climb would probably be too confusing and make you steal a car when you wanted to climb a telephone pole. It's weird they removed it since the previews though (unless there are still a select few poles you can climb somewhere).
