When you call up Roman's taxi and theres that jackass driving who continually roasts you about not paying for the ride, how annoying is he?!?!?
I wish you could complain to Roman about him and get him fired for someone else! What happens if you kill him? Does he come back alive?
Also at the start of the game when Roman has the crappy taxi I notice that peds sometimes get in it and drive off. Are they people that work for him or are they just nabbing his taxi?

I have killed that guy every single time he has taken me somewhere and I wasn't involved in a mission or something important where I didn't care about a potential wanted level (also on my gamesave that I have used cheats)

as for the second part of ur ? - if you actually go into the cab depot and take one of those black cars it is not a "Roman's Taxi" - it simply reads "Esperanto" when you get in and it is not his taxi...just the reg car painted black. doesn't have the red seats or the stickers on the rear or red dot in the grille. it's still a pretty decent find though b/c i don't think you can pay-n-spray the reg esperanto black...i personally don't like that car but if your a fan and wanted a black one there ya go...restart the game and save one at ur safehouse.

Edit: he will come back to life...well...he will be ur driver again next time if that makes sense

I'm not as extreme as the gentleman who wrote before me, I prefer a more sophisticated route of action which includes my wingtip and his ass... tounge.gif

Really? I enjoy his witty banter; it is a lovely comedy banquet bestowed upon Niko as he enjoys his cousin's public transport offering.

I enjoy his little rants as well! I love it when Niko just replies with a "you're a charming guy, you know that?"

I have yet try an steal his SUV (once he begins driving it). I think that's the only car (and the regular taxis) that you get a First-Person inside view of the car.

I take it just because it doesn't cost anything. I usually skip the ride if I'm going on a mission.

I know what you mean. The drivers always slag off Roman that makes Niko angry and sometimes the drivers slag off Niko because the drivers know Niko and Roman are cousins.

I tried to get revenge one time by jacking the c*nt to kill him but their driving side door is always locked. I got the grenade launcher out to blow one of them up and the grenade did a strange corkscrew spin and blew-up a couple of cops instead as they were trying to get past a car while they were in their police car. Getting the cops was just as fantastic.

I wish you can get in any taxi and shoot the driver in the back of the head no matter if they work for Roman or not. I wish we can see that taxi number in the yellow cabs at the back of the front passenger seat. I was hoping it was a number to become a taxi driver to make more cash but it looks like a loads of fives and I tried in and nothing worked. There's a massive poster in the second island with a phone number advertising a suite and I tried that and hoped to get another safe house and that failed. I wondered if that was an Easter Egg.

Never mind. It could have been worse. You could have been hitchhiking and got a ride from Miss Daisy where she was rambling on about her aches and pains through-out the journey and because she drives so slow you would hear more sh*t from her.

I always call Packie, get a bomb, then call Roman for the car service and plant the bomb on the taxi. I take some distance and boom.

You kidding? The taxi driver was the best. I got a little disappointed after a while when Niko stopped replying back to him and holding a conversation. Still, the guy was hysterical x]

Everytime I use one of his drivers, I always kill him once I get out of the car, for sitting there talking sh*t to me the whole time.

The first time I played GTA IV was basically a long slow process of me going from "Man this game sucks" to "OMG BEST GTA EVAR!" Riding in this asshole's cab and listening to him rant was definitely one of the many things that moved it up a peg in my esteem.
