Personally, the throwing people off sounds pretty amazing. I wonder if this is gonna be mostly just part of a mission or what. How do you feel about it? bbq.gif


EDIT: Wonder if it'll look like when CJ would hit the ground real hard.

Two words: FRICKING AWESOME. That is going to be so fun doing it the first time. Wonder how good the splat will be.

Lets hope you are able to get a motorbike up to the top of one of those building with a hooker riding on the back. At the last moment, abandon bike!

I think it would be pretty cool, in a My-Name-Is-Jack-Thompson-And-I-Hate-GTA way

As for the building in question someone pointed this out in another thread, I can't remember who so apple-oggies for lack of credit.

But could it be this set of odd looking windows here

well i'm not thinkin too much about throwin gpeople off buildings.....but more about throwing people in general. This means there will probably be a grapple system, so u can toss people, or do other things once u grab hold of them. biggrin.gif

It was okay, but you had to toss 'em quickly before they let go and ran away/kicked your ass. I hope they bring it back, but that you can toss people farther over time and that they don't get out of your grip.

This sounds awesome. From the way they announced it, it sounds more like you'll be able to do this anytime when meeting with gangs, sort of like a side mission.

I'm curious to see how cool it'll look when you throw them off and they land cool.gif

Also, they said LC will be the size of SA. What the hell? I thought we were told explicitly it wouldn't be so big.

It's not really going to be as big as SA. It's actually going to "feel" as big as SA. Cause I mean, this game is going have 5 different sections, so it must be really big. But they mentioned its not exactly as big as SA in terms of square miles. But the reason why it's going to "feel" as big, is because no space is being wasted on countryside/deserts as it was in SA as said by R*

To me it doesn't look like windows. It looks more like letters, probably the company name.

i'm guessing it'll be about the same size as Los Santos, Las Venturas, and San Fierro combined

Yes, but that's just your guess. Houser only said LC will be larger than any city so far and smaller than SA. So a city that is just one city block larger than Los Santos would theoretically fit what the guys at Rockstar are saying. I'm not expecting anything monumentally large.

And regards the whole "throwing people off skyscrapers" stuff I think it's just something you get to do once in a mission cut-scene. Maybe the game engine will allow grapples and grabbing things, but the throwing people down bit would be a once-only animation similar to many such features in San Andreas. Don't forget it's in R*'s interest to inflate any game feature (even if very very weak and peripheral) as much as possible.

I think alot of you need to download endorphin to really understand how cool this will be, no predetermined animations.

Yep, true. Endorphin will show you what it's all about. I find people's lack of faith in this physics system disturbing admiral.

that isn't the problem, the problem is, will they actually do it in a way where you'll grapple, or maybe a context sensitive button for when the guy is next to a railing.

On page 4 of the article it states that liberty city is roughly the size of san andreas. mercie_blink.gif

f*ck the article!!!

Read the interview with Dan Houser instead. Anything else is the magazine's opinion. Let me give you an example:
QUOTE (Ridiculous and Crass Example to Illustrate how Magazines inflate features beyond recognition)

Magazine: So, fargo, how big is your cock?
Fargo: <Laughs knowingly> Well let's put it this way, it's not as large as a telegraph pole but it feels as large as one.

Magazine: Fargo, in an EXCLUSIVE interview with this magazine, confirmed that his cock is slightly smaller than a telegraph pole.
