Well everyone that has been waiting for GTA IV since it was first announced will know about the big hype about climbing telephone poles.
Im doing the Algonquin missions, and im still wondering when or how I will be able to climb the poles?

I hope to god it wasn't just scrapped like the gloves for no reason...

I think it was probably cut, but the poles do have the hand/foot holds but they're too far up to reach. Maybe if you got a Van/Bus/Trashmaster and climbed on top you might be able to climb them but I doubt it.

i wouldent say i was "hyped" about the pole thing but i am kinda disapointed about not climbing them. im also disapointed about the cell phone radio being cut, and the trunk thing "AGAIN" oh well... its still pretty fun though.

It's not just the polls for f*cks sake.

It's about all of the features combining into a rich experience.

Poles, gloves, car modding, properties, more in depth friends system, car handling, mp3 players, phone upgrades, etc, etc.

One small feature isn't worth sh*t. Hundreds of tiny features amount to a lot.

Exactly, it's not about having to climb a pole...that would be a dumb game, but it's GTA + Climbing a pole = Rampage from a pole.

You all know what I mean, but some of you have to be an ass.

lol, agreed dozingoff.gif

sorry, just found that funny, yeah the big scheme of things eh? kinda like the variety SA had which so many people suddenly bitch about, with the whole IV 'realistic' thing, which is SO much better? IV does need some more fun things in it.

Being able to climb up a pole would make the game? Why? What would you do up there? Nothing, which is probably why they took it out.

Cell phone radio? I wanted that one myself. But what would I do with it? There's enough noise to be overwhelmed by, which is probably why they took it out.

Gloves? You got to be kidding me.

Car modding? You want to change the color of yo ride? Put some spinners on it? C'mon. Were you pissed that Tupac wasn't featured on the Half-Life soundtrack? That there will probably be no rayguns in LA Noir? Car handling was fine. A vast improvement.

Property? Why? Why do you need to buy twenty safehouses on three islands? For more missions? Fine, complain that the game was too sort. This Sim crap is becoming a gaming cliche and R* jumped ship just in time.

Phone upgrades? Upgrade what? It's the same interface just like in real life. What did you want? A grappling hook attachment?

Face it, GTAIV is growing up. Those of us who were able to legally buy GTAIII don't want any more cartoon ghetto crap. And those fans that do are a minority not worth pandering to.

Couldn't agree more.

Out of all the things people complain about, I seriously cannot f***ing believe they care about gloves so much.

What is so great about fingerless gloves?

"Oh look he has fingerless gloves WOW!!!! awesome".

It's a good thing GTA IV has given a shift kick to the nuts of the GTA series, and has grown up.

Haha, even in real life what is the point of cutting off the tips of gloves? Especially the little black ones that kids wear, there is not enough material for it to make a difference anyways. And, with his finger tips exposed, he leaves his finger print anyways, just a stupid stupid thing.

One group says OHHH MYYYY GAWD they took out this and that then next group comes along and says good it was gay and for little kids anyway GTA is growing up. @ 1st group who cares play they game it is great @ 2nd group I can bet any amount of money next GTA will have emo gloves (fingerless) be able to climb buildings and pole and paramedic missions and whatever else you bitches are complaining about. They're next gen consoles they didn't even know how to use ps3 and if it was exclusive to EITHER console (Don't start any fanboyism) it might have been better because 360 they know what their dealing with and PS3 would take them time to work with all the sub mission and extras. Also PS3 had to keep up with 360 so they couldn't add anything on 360 that they didn't know how to do on ps3.

(BTW I own a PS3)

I believe the second group is not complaining about anything from the game, except about those complaining. And if they add all the little things, I'm sure there will still be people complaining about what it doesn't have. Just life, people have the ability to complain so they do, good thing we don't live somewhere where complaints make you disappear.

AMEN, Snake .... it's like DAMN people the game just came out we have no idea what content or items may be added later , look at the treand of DLC for games .... some game devs even said yes we will not be hving DLC, example Oblivion for PS3 usuers, yet they made the expansion available, and older games are still ading content for free or for a small price..... it would be nieve to think R* ain't gonna milk that cow till she's dry...we also have to look at the fact they made this game for 2 systems and that has to attribute some too, it's not easy for developers to make identical games covering different hardware ...... but then again they could have and we be hearing all about how the xbox users got left out compared to the PS3 users -not me being a fanboy,R* already acknowledge they had to make the xbox version first because they couldn't convert a PS3 version over without lots of cuts due to its ability to handle more

the only reason for fingertip gloves is if you want to keep your hands warm, but do fiddly things aswell. Like sailing.

Another thing that was shown but left out was the interior for the Grand Easton Terminal (Grand Central Terminal in RL)

I'm sure there's a decent sized list of things we saw that got left out

Just exploring through Liberty City I've found some buildings that have an interior but have no way to get inside them
