I think because they were in the BETA screen shots and the artwork based on it, people felt they were missing out on a previously unavailable clothing accessory.

**POSSIBLE SPOILERS**





The only safehouse I have at the moment is the apartment that you're in after your first apartment and the taxi joint is burnt down... How do I go about buying different safehouses? I could really use one in a different location because I've moved on to a different city.... I havent found any info in walk throughs or anything like that..

Thanks

Are you asking if you get a reward for killing all 200 flying rats/pigeons? If so the answer is yes (of sorts). An Annihilator helicopter will spawn (most of the time) on top of the MeTV building in Algonquin.

Whilst locked on (L2) use the left analogue stick to move up and down on the target, when you find the area you want to shoot press fire (R2).


@saintdave: I think you made a mistake bec. you use the RIGHT analogue stick to move up or down the target.

Is there a definitive list of the "best" story choices that leave you the MOST people with special abilities on your cellphone? It would be nice to have it pinned. Don't need a whole walkthrough, just reminders for the irrevocable decisions!

Hi, PC version is out now. So it would be nice to see a FAQ update for PC GTA4

Also nice to know/post here is what the icon chances mean. A enemy icon can blink and it means you most make a decision (kill him or spare him). Also there is something growing on with your crosshair if you can perform a execution. And there are more little things thy explane ingame but I already forgot.

There's only one Garage in the game and that's Stevie's. You might be thinking of the Car Washes? If so, they're for exactly that, washing cars. Stevie's garage is used for making deliveries, and when they're done can be used for making a bit of extra cash by entering it with a a car of your choice. Stevie will give you cash for doing so.
Whoops, didn't notice the post date. He probably has an answer now, my bad.

If I get an achievement and later enter the cheat that potentially blocks it, is the achievement considered null and void ?

No, nothing happens to the achievements if you cheat after you unlock them.

Go to the online free mode or steal a Maverick helicopter from that east coast Alderney port.

I also saw a video where a guy on PS3 activated the Sixaxis demo or something similar in GTA IV and it brought him to the airport. Instead of following the tutorial directions, he just took a car and ran around inside, hahah.

Glad you like it icon14.gif

Updated with 4 extra questions -

• How do I dial numbers freely on the mobile phone?

• What do ATM’s do?

• Can you swim?

• How do you aim at other body parts whilst locked onto a target?

First of all I dont know what the ATM if for.. but I know the other one's

On the phone--- press up twice on the dpad and it should pop up

Swimming--- yes you can swim you just cant go underwater like in SA

To aim freely---hold down the Xbox or PS3 left trigger only about halfway to get free aim...or you can push the left trigger down all the way and then it should aim at their chest area...but if you use the left anolog stick you can move it up to the character's head...hope this helped....
