It's called Purgatory because Packie's stories are so boring, you'd rather be in Purgatory than listen to them..
Did you not pay ANY attention to the story?!

Either way, weird fine. I'll have a look when I get a chance.

Trust me, I've played plenty of attention to the story. It's brilliant.

I'd just like someone else to check this out, just in case I'm having some sort of breakdown or something.

I can't really remember - I guess it could have been.

There were no cars in it, whatever it was.

EDIT: Sorry, I'm being pretty vague - unfortunately I can't check this out myself at the moment as my girlfriend is watching TV sad.gif

Well, I found a 3 story parking garage, and the very top had about 6 people standing in 2 different groups. So it if it was the garage, and you were on the second floor, then it could've been the people on the roof section.

That's a reasonable explanation I suppose, thanks for checking it out.

If you could get a picture of the building, I could confirm if it's the same one.

There wouldn't be a whole lot of screaming in Purgatory, really. That's not what the place is about. People do their penance there, but they do it because they want to. It's not like Hell, where everyone is just suffering and tortured for all eternity (give or take a second coming). While you have to suffer a lot in Purgatory, rolling boulders up hill or what-have you, there is an end to your labor, and it isn't forever. Since you can only get there by choice, I doubt it would be full of screaming.

I can get the map location, but no picture because I do not have a camera.

The bright red dot is where I was at.

That's about where I remember being. For some reason, my mind is saying that the interior of the building was either blue or green - and the interior is a massive wide open space with quite narrow struts dotted around it.

I've just been to the location on the map. Its a 2 story carpark, the top floor is open air, the interior is grey.

There is a cool pimped out voodoo on the ground floor, check that sh*t out. But no screaming for me.

That would be a pretty sick "easter egg" if it was in there. Something a bit spooky is always cool, even if it can be logically explained (like the ghost cars)



Did anyone see the article on the liberty tree website taking the piss out of all the "urban myths?" f*cking funny. "meanwhile a whale has been sighted in middle park"

On a side note, right near the location you cited there is a pay and spray called: auto limbo.

Also the area you cited is right next to an area called: Purgatory

Did you by any chance fire a gun at that spot? because I didn't hear screaming UNTIL I fired a weapon at that spot indicated on the map. wink.gif Also, purgatory according to the BIBLE is FALSE -- that's not what it teaches. OK -- back to the subject. tounge.gif

BTW, it's possible to find out where the screaming is coming from if you follow the noise. If you think there's a secret "easter" egg, then follow the screaming and see where it leads. I usually can find the people who are yelling or talking by following the noises on the game. It gets louder or fainter.....

When you watch the television, you might bump into the "Republican Space Rangers!"
Their spaceship really looks like a penis and when they go on a adventure, it has some sort of condom around it.
I haven't noticed it in the list yet.

Yeah, Rockstar is known for the sexual innuendos in their GTA series, such as "eating out" when you look for restaurants. *sigh* give me a break! rolleyes.gif

I think I found a couple references to popular TV shows.

First of all, when I was in an area populated with alot of cabs I heard Niko say, "Hey, you're that guy from TV."
Pretty sure it was a reference to the Cash Cab.

There might have been a Seinfeld reference aswell. I pushed a guy because I was bored, and he fought me suprisingly well and I was almost dead so I started running, but I was apparently too fast for him so he said, "Kicking your ass is making me hungry!" and just stopped punching me. It could be a coincidence, but I think it's a reference to the episode where someone (I haven't watched it in a while so I forget what it was about) says, "These peanuts are making me thirsty!" He kind of in the way that George said it, too, so yeah.

That is the GTA 3 Outfit that you receive for killing Playboy X and getting his Loft.

Not to be a party pooper, but I think some of the origins of game elements proposed here are a little thin. I mean people here are making the loosest possible associations. I'll refrain from pointing out examples of this, but they're along the lines of "This character has dark hair and a mustache, just like [popular culture icon] also has dark hair and a mustache!" or "There's a bus in this game-- the movie Speed had a bus!"

Could we exercise a little more discretion before crying out "Easter Egg!"?

SPRUNK FACTROY KILLER

There is an abaondoned sprunk factory just up from hooters, enter it either by the lower ramp or the side door and let off a round, youll then see subtitles at the bottom of your screen: "oh your going down" and you will be attacked by a man with a gun.
I havent gone on to see if anything else happens, or the relevance of this, but just becuase of the subtitles coming up it makes it special from just a random ped experience.
Worth investigating?

I tried this twice, and both times the subtitles came up and the killer came from nowhere, guns blazing.

Did you ever defeat the killer?

This is one of the more intriguing easter eggs I've heard about! I hope to replicate it tonight.

Still no word on the Seinfeld cast in a diner in Algonquin? Something like 4 blocks away from Cluckin Bell? I still haven't verified that one yet...
