Grand Theft Auto V: Breaking Bad

Albuquerque: a sprawling sun-soaked desert full of soccer moms and meth heads, once the envy of Mexico City, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap fried chicken.

Amidst the turmoil, three very different family members plot their own chances of survival and success: Walter, a science teacher turned drug lord; Skyler, the drug lord’s wife who dreams of getting him out of the game and into her car wash empire; and Hank, the beer-loving DEA agent intent on bringing them both down. Running out of options, these three characters risk everything in a series of daring and dangerous events that could end their lives.

The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V: Breaking Bad blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story. In addition, players will be afforded the occasional opportunity to take control of beloved side characters from the hit TV series, like meth cook protege Jesse Pinkman, scumbag lawyer Saul Goodman, actor DJ Qualls, teenage douchebag Walt Jr., that guy who got his throat slit, bald hitman Mike Ehrmantraut, fried chicken impresario Gustavo Fring, Saul’s fat security guard, purple person Marie Schrader, Jesse’s Dead Girlfriend*, all-around creepy guy Todd, Doug from Flight of the Conchords, Hank’s partner Steve Gomez and Bill Burr. That prostitute who had her own blowjob montage will be available as downloadable content on January 1.

All the classic hallmarks of the groundbreaking series return, including incredible attention to detail and Grand Theft Auto and Breaking Bad’s darkly humorous take on the drug trade, alongside a brand new and ambitious approach to open world multiplayer. In Grand Theft Auto V: Breaking Bad, players will be able to involve themselves in the game world more than ever before:

  • Attend Walt’s chemotherapy treatments.
  • Help Skyler manage the car wash business.
  • Replace the White household’s water heater.
  • Embark on 24-hour methamphetamine cooks in real time.
  • Breastfeed Skyler’s baby.
  • Re-enact Marie and Hank’s handjob competition.
  • Gas up Walt and Jesse’s RV.
  • Keep the books for Ted Beneke before taking over your own car wash.
  • Have sex with Ted Beneke before taking over your own car wash.
  • Poison children.
  • Use Walt’s beige Aztek to mow down competing drug dealers.
  • Teach Hank to walk again in dozens of physical therapy sessions.
  • Launder your own drug money (includes opportunity to buy other famous Breaking Bad locations, like the nail salon or laser tag arcade).
  • Manage Hank’s mineral collection.
  • Attend open houses as Marie and steal items without being detected.
  • See if you too have what it takes to shoot Gale Boetticher in the head.
  • Attend Jesse’s group rehab sessions and talk about your feelings.
  • Get high with non-playable characters like Badger and Skinny Pete.

Developed by series creators Rockstar North, in cooperation with AMC, Grand Theft Auto V: Breaking Bad will be available worldwide on December 6 for Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3.

If POB’s bringing the methamphetamine, I’ll bring the bug bomb tent 😉

Steve Bowes <sbow137@aol.com>
You guys are too funny. Richard and Pat, you two should be a comedy duo 😀

Patrick O’Brien <purepob@gmail.com>
Why do you guys think I’m kidding?

Tara Mahoney <tmahoney@philadelphia.gov>
LOL Pat you’re such a card. Sorry I’m late to the email party. I’ll bring Doritos.

Dan Plazchek <da_donk@yahoo.com>
Since Pat wants to get a buzz on, I’ll scrap the soda and bring some Miller Lite. Or should I call it Schraderbraü? 😛

Patrick O’Brien <purepob@gmail.com>
Listen, I don’t know how I can make this any plainer: I met a guy who sells meth under the Market-Frankford. I can buy a teenth for Sunday. I can think of no finer way to kick off the last season.

Steve Bowes <sbow137@aol.com>
ROFLMAO

Ellen Burgess <ellen.burgess@temple.edu>
You take the Market-Frankford too??? Why don’t we ride together?????

Tara Mahoney <tmahoney@philadelphia.gov>
Okay, Pat, joke’s getting old. We don’t have any greens yet. Can you bring a veggie tray?

Lucy Zayon <cupcake8301@hotmail.com>
I was going to surprise you guys, but to calm Pat down: I’m making my own meth!  A.K.A. Blue Rock Candy!!!

Patrick O’Brien <purepob@gmail.com>
You mean to tell me that none of you guys ever watch this show and wonder what it would be like to try the crystal?

Dan Plazchek <da_donk@yahoo.com>
I just called Pat to see if he’d been hacked. He sounds serious, you guys.

Lucy Zayon <cupcake8301@hotmail.com>
Patrick!!!!! My dad’s a security guard. You can’t seriously want to bring meth into my home.

Richard Larason <richandtinalarason@verizon.com>
You guys, they’re messing with us. Just ignore them. Hey Dom: where are you? What’s the status of those fish tacos?

Dan Plazchek <da_donk@yahoo.com>
Seriously, Pat REALLY wants to try it. He just texted me a photo of his new pipe.

Patrick O’Brien <purepob@gmail.com>
I’ve already tried it, so it’s a used pipe. I want you guys to join me on peanut butter jelly time. :~~~~P

Ellen Burgess <ellen.burgess@temple.edu>
You know what? Fuck it, I’m in. Let’s do this.

Lucy Zayon <cupcake8301@hotmail.com>
ELLEN: NO. NO. NO. Anyone doing meth is uninvited.

Dan Plazchek <da_donk@yahoo.com>
So, wait, is this really happening then? Pat?

Patrick O’Brien <purepob@gmail.com>
Hey guys, I’d like to invite everyone over to my place on Sunday night for a Meth Potluck. I’ll supply the meth. You guys supply your noses.

Ellen Burgess <ellen.burgess@temple.edu>
Wait, are we snorting? I think I want to smoke it my first time.

Steve Bowes <sbow137@aol.com>
Sorry, guys. I’m sticking with Lucy’s party. I’m already addicted to something … Richard’s guacamole!

Lucy Zayon <cupcake8301@hotmail.com>
GOOD. I’m glad Pat and Ellen are having their own potluck. Feel free to come over when you COME TO YOUR SENSES!!!

Tara Mahoney <tmahoney@philadelphia.gov>
I wanted to see everyone 😦 Is there any way Pat and Ellen can come over before they do meth, then leave when they need to get high???

Dan Plazchek <da_donk@yahoo.com>
I just googled how to smoke meth. Pat, do you have a needle and a syringe? I think I’d like to try “slamming” it, as they say.

Ellen Burgess <ellen.burgess@temple.edu>
Where’d you read about that? I probably need to do some research too.

Richard Larason <richandtinalarason@verizon.com>
We’re going to Pat’s party! I know it’s crazy but I think I need to see this for myself.

Dan Plazchek <da_donk@yahoo.com>
Ellen: just go to http://www.tweaker.org. Super helpful.

Steve Bowes <sbow137@aol.com>
RICHARD!!! Are you bringing guac to Pat’s?

Lucy Zayon <cupcake8301@hotmail.com>
OMG YOU GUYS! WHAT THE HELL!?!!!?

Richard Larason <richandtinalarason@verizon.com>
Steve: If it’s OK with Pat, then yes.

Patrick O’Brien <purepob@gmail.com>
I bet guac tastes even better when you’re flailing on shards.

Steve Bowes <sbow137@aol.com>
OK, I’ll go to where the guac is. Sorry, Lucy.

Tara Mahoney <tmahoney@philadelphia.gov>
I think that’s everyone? OK, I’ll go to Pat’s. You could come too, Lucy.

Lucy Zayon <cupcake8301@hotmail.com>
GUYS THIS IS PEER PRESSURE THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY TOLD US NOT TO DO IN SCHOOL

Patrick O’Brien <purepob@gmail.com>
Lucy, you’re not invited. You’ll be too much of a drag, yo.

Lucy Zayon <cupcake8301@hotmail.com>
AM I SUPPOSED TO WATCH BREAKING BAD ALONE?

Dom Johnson <fatdom@aol.com>
Hey guys, sorry I’m late to the party. Do I still need to bring fish tacos to Pat’s, or are we good?
