This brings up the qeustion; how would you get your victim up there in the first place? There's only two plausible reasons as to how this could be done as far as i can tell;

•You'll be able to take hostages and move with them still in your possession.

•The feature will only occur during a specific mission in which you are on top of a building.

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.

What do you mean "only two"? How about a bunch of tourists on an observation deck? A high-rise hotel's rooftop cafe? A rich guy enjoying the sun on his penthouse's huge balcony?

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


If you don't feel like downloading the whole program you could just download this game. I'm pretty confident it is based on endorphin and though the game itself is as primitive as it gets, it's still pretty impressive. Just watch the stupid, "drunk" characters stumble and fall. I've spent som time just laughing my self to death biggrin.gif

oh.... the link: http://www.download....4-10669339.html

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

Yeah i think those odd windows are either the name of the company, but if it were like an apartment complex, it could be clothes hanging out of the window.

I think it will be in use, the GI informer described how natural were niko's movements, this could also be work of RAGE, either way with or without euphoria the graphics will inmensely be improved

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

Realistically, there would be no splat. It's all a misconception that bodies will turn into liquid, falling from high distances. The body would look nearly the same falling from any height. Anyway, I hope Rockstar would consider this, seeing as they are going for more realism in this game.

It's not that their bodies turn into liquid, it's that their body liquids spray out of them.

I am actually quite excited by this feature. I can imagine throwing a pedestrian off a sky scraper and the body landing in the middle of Times Square on top of a taxi. inlove.gif

I also noticed how Dan Houser stated that it will look a lot more realistic when pedestrians/you fall from heights and he tended to repeat it quite a bit so it sounds cool. I remember from SA when CJ fell and he just standed in mid hair moving his arms. Maybe this time you will see the player doing flips and turns in mid air and all that cool stuff.

I wonder if you fall a certain way the possibility of bone breakage is there?... Hmm...

They wouldn't. Fall from a large height and you'd get massive internal haemorrhage and die instantly. You won't SPLAT! though. For you to go splat your skin would have to burst open and your your organs somehow turn to mush. Which I don't think happens that often. You'd fall down, hit the pavement with a sickening thump and remain motionless as a pool of blood forms around you.

Check out famous websites like Rotten.

You'll see enough splattered people for it to change your mind.

You ever seen somebody jump from a 30 story window?
I have, neither pretty or clean.
It's like sombody just heated up and slammed a burrito to the ground.

We should ask MythBusters to throw someone from a skyscraper and film the results. Who volunteers?

I was just thinking, if you push someone out a window in a skyscraper you wouldn't really see the fall. You would lose him from sight pretty soon. I hope they include a feature so that when the person falls the camera would let go of the main character and follow the poor victim until hi hits the ground. Perhaps a couple of seconds more so you can se the pedestrians reaction. The camera would return to Niko if you push a button or are under attack.

I think the way CJ hit the ground in SA looked fake. Hope there will be a big splatter, loads of gore and broken bones...

I hated in SA if I made someone fall of the scyscraper (they walked off by themselves lol) they would dissapear out of sight while they still wasn't really far away. Always disappointed when I wanted to watch them hit the ground..

As for those who say there isn't a "splat", you're wrong. I hate to bring this up, but apparently you've never seen the results of many of the people who jumped off the World Trade Center building 1 and 2. Let's just say the bodies were unrecognizable, and no longer intact.

i think it would be really tight if we could throw a penny off a huge skyscraper like the empire state building in new york. People always get scared of the myth of killing someone by throwing a penny down the empire. I'd like to see tht happening in a mission of just stroling around.

Those who say that people are still recognizeable after hitting the ground in 200 km/h are wrong...

My friends father (who obviously is very cold blooded) had to help pick up his friend's bodyparts after he died in a parachute accident. Fell from the sky, parachute didn't work or something, hit the ground in 200+ km/h... result was a lump of jelly, bones crushed to dust, blood & gore, bodyparts lying around...
