there's a vice squad tag very easy to find . it refers obviously to Miami vice TV series actors . i'm a bit surprised it hasn't been listed yet . i also just found that i'm not sure we can call that an easter egg but i wouldn't be surprised if that pussy isn't a foreigner to some of the development team

Yes I've seen that. If I'm correct the first advertisement with the Hotring driving around the airport is for a National race.

don't know if it has already been said but there are strange streets names that looks like Miami vice series protagonists names . one it could be a coincidence but i found at least 3 or 4 . here

- Crockett avenue in Hove beach near Roman apartment
- castle drive : Vice squad lieutenant's name is Castillo
- Ivy drive : a very funny guy in Miami vice is called Izzy
- Jack Hammer street : refers probably to author/composer Ian Hammer that made some of the most famous Miami vice songs (Miami vice theme , Crockett's theme ...)

and i'm not totally sure but i think i saw Gina somewhere too . Gina is a police officer in MV . she falls in love with Sonny Crockett

Has anyone else ever seen, while flying a helicpoter around the city, I'm not sure which part exactly, at the top of one of the buildings, it reads 'GetALife'?
It was rather amusing to me. tounge2.gif

This may possibly be a reference to Greasy Joes Diner.

A few sexual references:

Annis, the car manufacturer that makes the Pinnacle, and Enus, the car manufacturer that makes the Cognoscenti and Super Diamond, their names are both plays on "anus". Also, the Auto Eroticar dealership in Alderney is a play on "autoerotica", which means masturbation. Their logo also looks like a penis.

On the hot dogs stalls' umbrellas you can see the slogan of the vendors which is "Try to beat our meat" or something which is a reference to hand-job.

That picture of Claude Speed looks like Niko in his outfit to me. You can't see the big pockets and the stance looks exactly like Niko.

I am investigating the statue of a man climbing a ladder near  the intersection of Columbus Ave and Uranium street. You can read DR JEREMIAH JAMES on the base of it. Somehow its fascinates me...

user posted image

I am convinced the name means something and is some sort of secrets, but I don't know how.

I'm not sure why I only decided to investigate this nearly four years after the game was released but here you are:

Jeremiah James is a musician/actor from NY & member of a band called 'Teatro', who are/were signed with Sony BMG. Dan& Sam Houser used to work for Sony BMG, I'm guessing that's the common link. They are probably friends with this 'Jeremiah James' fella & added a little Easter egg for him. The statue of the man on top of the ladder must be in reference to the stage musical 'Carousel', in which this Jeremiah James played the role of Billy Bigelow. I've never seen the musical but a famous quote from it is, "Put Him up on a ladder, for all I care, only get Him out of that parlor!".

Funny coincidence, because in-game, it is the name of the person who founded LC according to the TV, and that is a statue of him. Maybe they are inspired by that.

Section: Real Life

Easter Egg Name: GTA:SA and GTA:VC theme park

Notes: in the theme park, go to the giant boat, then, as the background on the wall behind the giant boat, there will be a reference to GTA:VC, and if you travel up towards the cups and sauces like ride near the gate, look on the wall behind that, and you will see a clear reference to GTA:SA

I don't know either if has been mentioned yet nor if it's a "common" expression for english speakers, but I think there could be a reference to Guns N Roses; the Tw@t guy often yells at you "Back off, Bitch!" when you try to hit him. Back off bitch was a song by G N' R released in their 1991 album Use Your Illusion I (originally was going to be included in their debut and succesful album Appetite for Destruction of 1987).

1. Manhunt Hippo Statues
In the amusement Park in Broker there are blue/purple Hippo Statues, just like the ones from Manhunt.

They also exist in GTA San Andreas.

1. Hidden Artwork
On a wall in LC, you can see artwork from previous GTA's, these include: 8-Ball from GTA3, CJ from San Andreas, Misty From GTA3, The Helicopter[/URL] from San Andreas, The Twins from Vice City.

El Burro and Kenji, and a Yardie gang member (GTA III), and Mercedes Cortez from GTA Vice City are there too.
Ray Machowski and a Triad member are on the backdrop too, albeit much smaller than the foreground characters.

I'm not sure if this has been already commented, I'm sure it is, but anyway, I think there's a reference in Lazlow's show to Rick Allen, the Deff Lepard drummer who lost his arm in a car accident and even so continued playing drums.

Lazlow begins to talk about the 80's and says something like "back when 16 year olds could drink and listen to metal music, you got in a high speed accident and you were like "dude I've lost my right arm" and your friends said "dude who cares, you can drum".

I love that "Funk In time" made an appearance as a ringtone.
