GameStop (my specific one, at least) is also offering the guide for preorder, though I don't know if it's the regular or limited edition (or both). I'll have to inquire next time I decide to drop to and aggravate the manager (a buddy of mine I've known for years) for a little bit.
I started out with Brady Guides as very helpful tools for GTA 3 in particular, offline without constant internet access it was very helpful, but these days, I let experience guide me more then not. What is most interesting for this outing is that GTA V has a million and two possibilities for completion, it seems!
