New safehouses: Since Johnny lived in Liberty City for his whole life (I'm just guessing) it might just be that he has his own house-- since Niko, being new to America, couldn't afford a house. But doesn't matter.

Kinda like CJ then. All the other GTA characters seem to live in crappy hole-in-the-wall safehouses or apartments/mansions that they acquire during the course of the game. I hope that's the case.

I've been playing through GTA again, and I noticed that in Hossan's Email, he mentions that a load of heroin was stolen from some Chinese guys. Since Johnny seems to be sitting on a big pile of it when you first meet Elizabeta, I guess it's safe to say who stole it.

I love how everybody whines! MEH MIAH BLEAH, not going to buy it, why isn't niko here, not going to buy a 360, not this, not that and when the DLC will be released everybody is going to buy it!
Just wait and see because R* only threw us a BONE, wait for the others to come!
I for one don't care what they add or not even if i'd want some new stuff but of course R* won't listen to me. So ill buy the DLC with whatever it has new as long as it wears GTA on it wink.gif

it doesn't matter how many people will get it, either way R* will get their 50 million.
but im sure at least 1/2 xbox users that have GTA IV and have heard of dlc will get it.

wow...
The DLC was alot more than what I was expecting. When I first read the propaganda email I was heaps excited about how much that it will offer. I'm so glad I bought my 360 now. To all the PS3 owners sorry too say but you won't be getting this DLC. I reckon that this will be like a whole new game. Oww new multiplayer, weapons, characters, music, cars. Making me a little man wet sarcasm.gif

Despite the fact that i am against DLC, if this turns out to be as long as the original game in terms of story, then i think it will be worth it, since it can't be 60 dollars again, i think the name "episodic" comes with merit, but we still have a lot to see.

Oh I gotta check that out. I don't remember the email saying that but I know he was talking about going to Vice City or something. Yeah I'll check it out. I hope what you're saying is true because that sounds very interesting.

I think that maybe, just maybe, that the money given to them is going to be used to produce the DLC. No?

I'm wondering a few things
one what will the timeline be, will it happen before after or parralell to the original story.
with the pack downloaded can you still play the original story mode? could you play Nikos story then pause and load Johnnys?
Will there be different clothes (AS WELL as the originals) and weapons. Will johnny have a different walking/fighting style?
Once theres more info out on it maybe these will be answered. Sounds like a half assed attempt to me, UNLESS they change it enough to make it work... but then will that affect the base game?

Oh and johnnys a biker right? Will that mean he'll have fingerless gloves tounge.gif lol had to be said

Edit:
Seems R*s site says the story intersects the original story, and has answered some of my questions:P
sounds like new radio too? tounge.gif

now hows it going to work, is it going to overwrite GTAIV or can both "games" co-habit on the 360.
im thinking "new game" leads to a charecter selection, but i strongly suspect that the DLC will overwrite the original game, thus rendering the original game unplayable........ guess that remainds to be seen

I seriously doubt the DLC will "overwrite" the original game and make it "unplayable"
You will probably get to choose wheter you wanna play the DLC or the regular game (how it will work, i don't know though), so i wouldn't worry about that

Well they said it would be as big if not bigger than Shivering Isles for Obilivion, and that was f%$# massive. So I'm expecting a boat load of cool toys.

Yeah, they will need to be patient while saving up money for an Xbox 360 since Microsoft has $50 million that says PS3 owners will never see this content.

Oh, yeah, I forgot, the PS3 owners have their wishful thinking.  I guess that sorta evens out.

Why would i buy a 360 just for this? Are you off your trolley, sir?

PS3 will get something.

It was already posted that the PS3 Version will get DLC too, Which will consist of more Rubbish on the streets, a prezel vendor, red clown shoes,plastic bat and a new mentally challenged person named Ray.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol.gif

I don't remember anything like that also, source please.

But if it was true, it would rock, this would probably be the best expansion ever if it was as long as the main game, like i said before, when they said this pack was "episodic", they weren't f*cking around.

I just want more things to do in the city. Maybe a couple "movies" at a cineplex in a mall. I hope they have more cool interiors to blow stuff up in. Id really like a grocery store or a walmart or something. More activities like new arcade games and basketball or golf or something. I'm really excited about the new weapons and music. New vehicles will be cool.

The thing I want most out of this is new cheats though.

Some interiors I'd really like to open up are the stores and restaurants that were brought back from San Andreas but don't have have interiors in IV, such as the 24/7 stores and the clothing chains. It was let down to see them brought back but unusable.

Considering they've already been given 50 million to make it exclusive, and they're probably still wiping their ass with the stack of hundreds they made from GTAIV.. I don't think they'll have a problem covering expenses. Pull the trigger next time you point that at yourself.

Whoever first said the DLC would overwrite GTA4 and make it unplayable is an idiot and anybody who repeated the same fears are also idiots. When, in the history of downloadable content released on a console game, has downloadable content EVER overwritten the main game? sh*t, you might as well be afraid of Saudi terrorists creeping into your bedroom at night and raping you while you sleep. I don't know if you realize this, but there are these things called "menus," and not every menu is there to help you order food. Some of them are there to ask you if you want to play GTA4, or The Lost and Damned.

I wonder if I can use the new weapons in regular Niko Bellic GTA4.

Also, I would just like to remind everybody that, since GTA4 is being released on Games for Windows (which is also owned by Microsoft,) that PC users have a chance at getting the DLC! PS3 users can eat sh*t and die for all I care!

Playing GTA on the PS3 isn't nostalgic. I played the old GTA's on the Playstation 2 all the time and I was perfectly fine moving onto the XBox platform. The only difference is that the left stick is switched with the D-pad, which I actually prefer now. Anyone who thinks GTA on Playstation is nostalgic needs serious therapy!

Wait, did I just start a flame war? Oh my rolleyes.gif

Just think of all the people who will be nostalgic about playing "The Lost and Damned".

They'll all be Xbox 360 owners.
