i will try that Zit,but i have only heard the song while in the club,not on the radio,hopefully it will still work...i have used Zit before,because i wanted to know who sang that 'cry' song.....i cant remember now though,LOL

missions are definetly getting harder and the story is getting deeper and deeper.

i was looking in the guide,and apparently random people should show up after various missions and they give you odd jobs to do...but i only found one of them right near the beginning of the game(the guy who gives you $100 for doing nothing)

can anyone tell me who sings that 'turn me on' song that you hear in the strip club,its driving me batshit crazy

and ,er not that i am in there that much paranoid

hiya myto,hows it going?
i havent even heard of Professor Layton..what is it another of those brain training games for the DS?

PS..once my PC gets fixed Myto(this weekend hopefully),can you send me an email to the usual address,as all my contacts have been wiped due to me not being on hotmail for so long..which is wierd

and i think Kathode is a girl,at least i was under the impression she was..sorry if not

sorry for the double post

just saw on Kotaku that GTA4,here in the uk has broken first day sales(no suprise really)....it sold 609,000 units in a day,beating the previous record of 501,000 held by San Andreas

the 360 version sold 335,000
the PS3 version sold 274,000

just to compare,here in the UK again Halo 3 sold 266,000 in its first day,so the 360 version has that beat as well

well,its on its way to make back its 100million that it reportedly cost to make,whether that includes marketing/advertising i dont know

EDIT:take into account that GTA:san andreas was only available on the PS2 at the time of release

i have made it to the middle island now,where the city blocks are at least prettier(times square for one)

I tried rushing through the story a bit to unlock that island but I still haven't gotten to it.  How far after unlocking
Spoiler for Hiden:
the safehouse up in the Bronx
do you get to Manhattan?

i was doing as mission called 'blow your cover' from Elizabeta,and at the end i had a pretty bad wanted level and just dived down a road to get away from the cops,it turned out to be the bridge 'northwood heights bridge at the top of the map leading to the second island,you have to take a guy called playboy x back home at the end,he lives at the top of the island....i didnt hear anything else telling me the island was now open...i did however read about it on the internet afterwards at TW@ internet cafe

although i love the city,and i am loving the game,i feel as though i really need a change of scenery in the game,again this may come from me liking san andreas so much...but its just seems to be city block,city block,city block all the time

i have made it to the middle island now,where the city blocks are at least prettier(times square for one)

i think i miss the long motorcycle(easy rider type)rides across country crybaby

peterock-dont forget though it turned out that some of his gang betrayed CJ,and were responsible for his 'moms' death,that was quite interesting

i can definetly see where you are coming from though with the stereotypical boyz in the hood thing ...but i dont think i have really had a problem with any of the lead characters in the series,maybe number 3 because he didnt speak,which i dont like(like in bioshock especially)....and CJ called him a mute f*ck when he raced him in GTA:SA

I think the character of Niko helps me to better play the role (which may be why I struggled with San Andreas, but had no problem living up the lavish, well-dressed decadent lifestyle in Vice City).   

face it....  you don't like black people!!!111

(I'm joking, although I really do know some people in real life who refused to play San Andreas because the main char was black)

wow,really..i loved CJ,he made me laugh,i loved the whole grove street gang thing...i wonder what these people will do if masterchief took off his helmet and revealed that he is black

rickfc-TW@ internet cafe comes into the story about 5-6hrs in,and i think there are two on the first island,at least one anyway...oh,and i didnt mean to make that an actual link in my above post
13810  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 30, 2008, 08:51:38 PM
do you remember when i said there were pencil marks on my map

well,if you goto TW@ internet cafe and go on the internet there and type in the address bar:
www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com

you will get locations for weapons,health,armour,vehicle,pigeons,ramp/stunts and entertainment...not bad really

and the pencil marks on my map,well they are actually underground weapon shops

i was watching TV last night(in game)..and i saw 2 referances to Rockstar games

first of was a show about rich people,it said that they have tiny little dogs hidden up their vagina,and they went to a rich boarding school,as it said that it showed a picture of Bullworth boarding school from Bully

2nd was a commercial for Vinewood C*nts....and it showed the hollywood type sign of Vinewood thats from GTA:san andreas

I've done everything from clearing the system cache to outputting in SD to unplugging the ethernet cord.

It still randomly hard locks during the game. I just played assassin's creed and bioshock for six hours with no issues.

My inlaws just got their 360 back after it RRoD'd and it happens on that one too.

I'm supposed to have the next four days off work. Maybe I'll just go back in. It's not like I can return this now...

maybe a faulty copy/disc?...was the disc you used in your in-laws 360 the same copy?
13813  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 30, 2008, 12:26:04 AM
Eduardo-there has been some complaints on the PS3 forums that they cant get into the multiplayer,not sure whats wrong though

EDIT:check front page of Kotaku,they have a report on it


i just did a mission where i had to shoot from my car,i was attracting a lot of attention,and got two star cops all over me,i did the mission so started to run away from the cops...then all of a sudden,HE STARTS WALKING AND MAKES A PHONE CALL..while the cops are still firing at me,i couldnt overide it,and i couldnt run as he was telling the mission giver that the mission was done....very stupid

the story has really opened up now,and Niko is really becoming interesting as well
13814  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's the NEXT Big Game? on: April 29, 2008, 09:47:39 PM
to tell you the truth there isnt that much on my radar
fable 2-is a must
MGS4-is a must
Too human is a maybe,not decided yet
lego indiana jones -is a prolly,i love indy,i loved lego star wars so why not?

i would still like to know whats happening about Alan Wake...and has final fantasy 13 been confirmed for 2009,as i havent heard much about that for a few months either
13815  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 09:37:03 PM
pencil marks on the fold out map

i was on teh ps3 forums and someone mentioned that there were pencil marks on their maps..everyone checked,as well as me and sure enough,they are there,small grey filled in circles,one on each island

on the furthest right there is one at the corner of Dillon street/Montauk ave

the middle island its at the corner of emerald st/Bismarck ave

and on the furthest left island,there is one on the corner of Odhner Ave/Traeger rd

can one of you guys check if the small pencil marks are on your map as well,looks like it has been done with pencil after the map was printed...i am gonna go there in the game and see if anything is there

EDIT:well,they havent been added afterwards anyway,i have an eraser,and i tried gently to rub the mark off,and was having none of it

so,i am guessing the marks have been addec to add to the feel that its meant to be a real map,but why only those three very small circles?
13816  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 09:00:20 PM
wow,really Ridah?..thats wierd,that the PS3 looks that different..guess its what was said about the 630p thing being upscaled..still,i would be pretty pissed off if i was a ps3 player and i had some beef with the visuals


anyway-i have the LIVE month card as well,if someone didnt get it in their GTA,and want it,i will be happy to give them the code(as i have alredy paid for the year).....just one thing though,i am in the UK,and i have no idea if that effect any codes for say,North America

not sure how we can do it,if there is more than one person who wants the code,so fight it out between yerselves
13817  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: General Grand Theft Auto IV Thread .... IT'S OUT! but no impressions here! on: April 29, 2008, 04:20:53 PM
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

13818  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 02:18:35 PM
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
13819  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 01:51:47 PM
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

13821  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 12:54:53 PM
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
13822  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 12:15:43 PM
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
13823  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 09:37:39 AM
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!!
13824  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 09:24:19 AM
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...
13825  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Do you get pissed off sometimes when gaming? on: April 29, 2008, 09:08:46 AM
i get very easily pissed off in games,GTA san andreas helicoptor training pretty much made me scream the neighbourhood down

COD4 when some bastard wont die after i have been shooting him for ages pretty much makes mne scream as well

but being on the internet using the PS3,makes them two feel like a holiday....if you have an option to use the browser on the ps3...run away
13826  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 08:48:03 AM
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
13827  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official GTA4 impressions thread on: April 29, 2008, 08:43:51 AM
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!!

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

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.

gellar

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.

Hmm, unless Rockstar built it into the code to automatically disable achievements if these are used, wouldn't such things risk getting a gamerscore reset to zero? 

I read in another thread that when you use a cheat then you get some popup or something saying achievements are disabled for that session.  Something along those lines.

oh great...more pop up on the 360(!)...LOL

That .5 is everything! EVERYTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINGGGG!



That's right. Single forum crost posting. Eat it and smile.

here in the UK,the PS3 games are still more expensive then the 360 versions...360=39.99...PS3=44.99....so maybe that .5 really is justified,LOL
