i am pretty much done with online reviews,they are good to read when you wanna know whats in the game,but when it comes to actually reading their opinion on the game...they may as well just put 'baaaa'...and R* are the shepherd
i thought shoving that guy through the third floor window in one of the missions was what you were supposed to do,because i did the same..oh well,LOL
for anyone interested,Kotaku have put up a PS3/360 split screen down the middle video,that at the moment,..doesnt work,BUT,someone in the comments page,has posted a link to a vid that does work there is pretty much,.nothing between the two,the ps3 version colour looks more ..well,more colour,as the 360 version the faces look pale,wheras the ps3 look like they have a tan...but everything else,looks absolutly the same
i love the game....but,it does have its problems(the driving like i said,and someone else mentioned as well takes a lot of getting used to)and sometimes being too dark
but there are a lot of things i appreciate..the GPS works wonders,so you never really get lost,the size of Liberty City is not evident at first...but then when you realise there is another 2 and a half islands (not too mention a fully laid out subway system underneath)as well as the one you start on,it starts to dawn on you,especially when every building and every person has a lot ..A LOT of detail
i am hoping the funfair will open up...i have played bowling,pool and darts and i want a go of that minature golf course
oh,and the sunsets/sunrises are great looking also
the only thing thats making me frustrated is the driving and handling of cars,they asre very touchy when turning corners and lean to one side..something i have to get used to
right,that fuzzy picture thing Ridah....on the PS3 uk forums a lot of people are getting this,while others PS3 or 360 aren't
the people who ARE getting it,funnilty enough are all using a SONY Bravia TV,wondered if that may of been the case for you,and the other people on here who has mentioned fuzzy(on the ps3 forums they also mention jaggies,again i havent noticed any on the 360).
so,those with jaggies or fuzzyness,what TV are you using?...i am sure one of you WONT be using the Bravia,so then we can rule that out
just played for a few more hours,opened up some more missions strands...played pool,played darts(got 180 and achievement..wasnt hard)...got my girl in the sack(got an achievement)...playing pool wasnt as good as i was hoping,it was a bit of a pain,but for a mini game its fine,darts is really easy,you have to position a cross hair where you want the dart to go,it shakes a little but not much
enjoying the missions,had a bit of the cover system,taught to me,pressing Rb i think when next to a wall or something
i know why i got kicked out of the lap dancing club....it costs a lot of money and at the time i only had a dollar,took a taxi home,watched the cinematic while he took me home...got out of the cab and got another achievement for taking a taxi from one island to another without skipping
hope you get it sorted Ridah...if CK is having the same trouble on the 360,then i am not sure what it could be
i just found out about the Taxis..press LB to whistle a cab,and then HOLD Y button to get in....if you just press the Y button,you end up stealing the cab
as anyone seen one of the collectables yet(flying rats)?,i havent seen any,so they must be quite well hidden,and unlike real pigeons who just wonder onto the road and try and pick up that cigerette butt thinking its food
i have been through the toll bridge as well,to get to the smaller island at top of map(where the lap dancing place is)..it costs $5..which left me with $1...so i had to break through the toll barrier on the way back!!
no they seem fine,like i say there was a time near the beginning of the game when the colours looked watered down,but it was due to it being an overcast day i have the 360 version and i am playing it on SONY 32"triniton/vega SDTV widescreen if that helps
how far are you into the game?,and did you notice this from the start?
not sure if this will apply,but i was playing a game on the PS3 last week and i had to mess about with the screen settings(from the XMB),as the cut scenes were messed up..but then if all your other games are fine...
i went out with Roman your cousin(in game that is,incase you have a cousin called Roman and you thought i meant you),and had a few drinks,and got totally shitfaced,it was pretty damn funny seeing the two falling over each other..the i had to drive home which was a test as the screen was going in and out and left and right making it very hard
i think the hardest thing will be getting used to the streets,where places are....it will take time but will be very handy when i remember
sorry for the double post,ps3 browser only lets you post so much
hmm,i had no problems with the graphics,after i first do a few missions the day was very overcast,and then later i saw some mist/fog..and i was thinking that it was very pale colours,but then it cleared up
the driving i really need to get used to,as i am having a hard time remembering that the LT is not a break(more just reverse)but thats the button i press when i need it,which means i miss my turning
i like the phone options,changing ringtones and i went on multiplayer,which was fun,i am hoping there is a character customise screen somewhere because when i leaped on i was a young black woman..now i am not racist,and i am not sexist but i would prefer a choice,it was good though playing about on free roam(i ran two players over who were having a fistfight)
back to the single player,i have been bowling on a date..she won...bitch,and i have been to the triangle bar,which is on the small island,lap dancing,and got a private dance,after the second dance,another girl joins in....then i got kicked out!!
is that the one where you send them all to sleep so you can concentrate on one at a time?..cant remember what they are called,but i will give you the title of a game that it toatlly reminded me off..final fantasy 7,when weapon is heading for midgar!!
yeah i agree with you,disc 3 was very empty of dreams,i have them all now,and the bonus one of the hong kong marketplace(or pre-order)..they are worth going after...nice little stories..and you get the achievement if you like that kinda thing...oh and that spoiler is for you Andy..i hope its the part you are going on about..arthurasaurus or something like that

Well, if the rest of the dialogue in the game is as piss poor as the hooker scene dialogue... I will probably not play the game.
LOL,c'mon,thats bullshit and you know it!!
No seriously. The game is supposed to have an excellent story, dialogue, and voice acting. Everything I've seen outside of that video supports that case. That video? Not so much.
i dont think you should be too worried(if indeed you really are)...remember san andreas where CJ would bump into people,and a line was spoken.....this kind of shit is just filler dialogue,and will prolly be repeated a few times...depending on how kinky you make your character
and i agree with you about the story and voice acting in everything i have seen as well.
you can swim,but this time you cant dive under the water,you just swim on the surface...with the phone,the phone numbers on billboards and now just swimming on the surface....it IS gta4 i am getting right?,and not saints row 1?
for those who are getting the 360 version,some people have been reporting that if you clear your cache,then there will be no problems with pop up as much...whether it works or not..i dont know,but i have done it anyway,(i remember Oblivion)
to clear cache on xbox 360:incase you dont know...from xbox.com forums
go to the system blade and press select memory..press Y on the HDD symbol and then press X,X,left bumper,right bumper,X,X
once you do this,a message will appear asking:do you want to perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage devices?performing this function will also clear any software updates
you will have to re-download any game updates that are needed but no system updates-its useful if you have tonnes of games on your HDD
interesting parts from the Kotaku..i had to write them down to copy them as i dont have copy and paste on this PS3 browser
'Xbox360 version seemed capable of achieving smoother framerate peaking higher in certain circumstances,such as in confined spaces or during light traffic,but both versions seemed to regularly run at a similar clip'
'the 360 can suffer from some very noticable texture loading as things like trees,vehicles and building signs will regularly pop in as one tools around town,...and the PS3 version isnt entirely immune from it,but it isnt a game killing problem'
i think the simple matter is,that both versions will be the nuts
yeah unfortunately none near me,i heard south wales,yorkshire and cambridge are a few places...while i am in Manchester and my local GAME shop are sick of me phoning them LOL
as for those achievements,i dont like the one ....complete all story missions under 30 hrs...i like to take my time when doing thses games,so thats one i wont be getting
i heard Ricky Gervais is one of the stand up comedians you can go see (the Boss from the UK version of The office)..i have a few stand up DVDs of his,and he is quite funny on stage,so looking forward to going see that show...anyone want to come see the show with me over LIVE?,LOL
the dreams were great,and although i wouldnt of thought it,it was a nice change to sit back and have a little read for 5 minutes and so,while having a rest from the main game
if they did make a sequel to this,it baffles me how they will do it-i cant see it being the same characters because it would have to have the same premise about 1000years old etc,so what?,new characters with the same problems?,i cant see that working really,unless they named it something totally different from 'Lost Odyssey'
well,just over 30 hrs for me(UK midnight release)..and then i have 7 days off work..but this tuesday i have to wait in(downstairs,away from my other 360) for the DLH dude to come and pick up my first 3 red ringer 360 which i had since launch...but hell,it lasted longer than my PS3(which i bought last July),which went tits up after the last update (i currently have my sisters 360,which is really mine that i borrowed her until i get my old one back)
i also have to contact my PC company to get a man out to fix the two day old PC which crapped out on me as well-then there is the second leg of the champions league match between Manchester United and Barcelona football match(soccer for you guys)
so,although i will be playing on the game tuesday,it will really be wednesday that i can really sink my teeth into it
sure the ps3 version will have slightly better graphics(which i still dont see can be such a major difference)and no pop ups<<i heard this only can only be seen on the 360 on a helicoptor mission
but playing games on the sixaxix just doesnt feel right anymore for me,instead of being comfortable holding the pad and it being natural for my thumbs on the sticks,with the ps3 controller it feels as though i have to be more alert and precise with those sticks
achievements will be fun to have as well,and i am hoping that the incar radios can have your own music again from your HDD like the xbox 1 versions of the GTA games
wow,just over 72 hrs until i buy the game...for once in my life,i actually want a weekend to hurry up and be over....another thought,i am actually looking forward to a monday<<<<that just dont seem right
i actually just got onto a server and have been playing for the last 30 or so minutes...hated it,very much so
its so slow and Turtle you are right about the controls,especially switching to grenade etc
for some reason after i die for the first time in a game i respawn and then die again straight away,not sure whats going on there,also i had to aim and then fire on the enemy for a looong time until he actually died as well,i am talking 4-5 seconds of constant shooting and hitting him...maybe i have missed something i dunno,but that was me hitting him in the head as well
i liked the character custom screen...but that was about it for the whole experience,and maybe the part where you have to waggle the left stick if you get stunned to be awake again(you waggle the infamous 'MGS above head stars' away)..but i can see that becomeing very tiresome
graphics were nice,not wow though
if this is a seperate purchase like rumoured,i definetly wont be buying it
jesus christ on a moped,this has been nothing but a pain
downloaded the 'beta' from psn....that took 3 hrs,the patch took another 3-4 hrs,then the second patch took another hour,then going to the konami site to create a 'konami ID' and 'Game ID'...took another 20-30 minutes,because all my ideas for names were taken..then when i got that sorted out and confirmed the email thing,the servers were full because of traffick(no shit sherlock)
i have been in a few beta's and this has been worse than siging up for final fantasy 11!!,seriously konami need to pony up with decent servers for one thing to let the people play and let them download the patches faster......and why cant we just use our damn PSN account????
and i am still not sure if this bluetooth headset(which is really an earpiece,who the fuck named it a headset?)works!!
sorry,as you can see...i am pissed!!!!
the gameplay trailer looked a bit shit anyway,looked stupid and jerky,LOL

i liked coopasonics city bus race idea
That was actually wonderpug, I just highlighted it.
Oh, and TDU had motorcycle too!
ahh,then sorry wonderpug
and yeah coopasonic,i forgot about the motorcycles in TDU
i suppose you could hold your own olympics running and swimming races,archery(or shooting targets),cycling,throwing(javelin)...or you could set a guy on fire for the olympic torch and everyone else could be Tibet protesters and try and put him out!!...no offense to ..er ,everyone
i liked coopasonics city bus race idea,then kinda got thinking about other stuff that free roam would be good for...speedboat racing as well,or bikes....or maybe with all 16 players,find a deserted place and have our very own fight club!!!,two players in,no weapons,last man standing wins the round possibilities are pretty much endless,reminds me of test drive unlimited,but because you could only be in a car,it kinda became...limited
you may of seen some of these pictures in the trailers,but here you can look at all the city details in the background
Spoiler for Hiden:
even has dirt on the windscreen
'The good people of Liberty City go about their business with a sense of purpose you won't have seen before in the series. They don't just shuffle aimlessly, but all seem to be doing something, whether it's pausing for a smoke, sweeping the street, chatting on the phone, or loitering with intent in a shady alleyway. The city feels like a living, breathing place rather than being populated by zombie passers-by.'
Vinegar Strokes poster,LOL
re-enact 'Falling Down',LOL
snipers...damn,thats Team Deathmatch ruined then,
wonder if this is in the boat that we saw in the first GTA4 trailer
