Yeah sounds pretty bad ass. I will be trying it out for sure on the PS3. Half the time I like to do all the crazy non-storyline stuff. Run up on the street, knock down an old lady and beat her with a club. Watch the medics come, beat them down, steal their ride and then ditch it into the nearby ocean or something while still on fire.

I got cheat codes for vice city to give me all kinds of weapons once and started taking on the FBI and stuff. Blowing choppers out of the sky and everything. Fought off the military and stuff. It was fantastic.

Oh and btw, if I go to jail in the future, it will be because of this game. :D

i thought vice city was advertised with like 105 hours of game story.

maybe thats including all the side missions.

i always get to like 80% get frustrated
and just start blowing shit up with cheats.

cod4 is the only game i've ever beaten without cheating.
it made me feel like a man so maybe i'll try again.

I couldn't tell for sure but from some of the screens it looks like you can callobrate with other gamers to hold up banks and stuff. That would be awesome. DIC gang becoming GTA bank robbing crew. Now only if we can do stuff like kidnappings and calling for ransom of other players and stuff. Talk over the phone in a garbled voice asking for cash to be delivered to drop off points and everything.

We will just have to be cautious to make sure we don't capture kim basinger and have her rat us out over a broken telephone like in the movie "cellular"

:D

This is horse sh!T my favorite franchise and I don't think I will have the game in time cause I still won't budge on buying a 360 or PS3. I absolutely need to play GTA IV. I need to own it, and become a terror to the little Liberty City civilians. I wan't to reak havoc on the innocents. I want the National Guard to show up with Tanks and steal it and then see them try and stop me. I wan't to pick up a prostitute, have my way with her and then drop her off in an alley and beat her to death and steal her money.
I heard you can go bowling and hang out at the bar. I also seen the Burger Shot is back in the game, I liked going to get a bite to eat and watching dude get fat in San Andreas. Then go to the gym and get all buff.

I might have to, but unfortunately it will have to wait till after my pilgrimage to NYC in June. :(

Unless of course I have some nice change of fate. I just spent $250 on a 80GB IPod.

The only thing I didn't like in Vice city is how they had cops on just about every street corner. In a real city, even in the US, you don't have that many cops walking around. The problem with this was as soon as you did the smallest offense they were all over you. I wanted to have a little fun, beat a few people down and if a cop just so happens to be in the area and sees me, fine then I will go ahead and run from the cops.

But at one point it was getting rediculous when I see like 10 cops in a two block radius. If only cities had that much coverage how could anyone get away with anything?

:)

True, with the exception of NYC. In Manhattan wherever you look you see a cop.

But for any other city I agree.

I'm getting it for the 360 the second it arrives in India.
Unfortunately, PAL versions of any 360 game always take a month longer to release here, which means I can only buy it in May-June. *aargh*
