Nice one. Thanks for the preview, and I hope you guys had a lot of fun while you were there. Will read it now and will probably ask you something in a minute.

Edit: Alright, some questions that I feel would be really appreciated if you can clear up. Can Johnny change clothes? Are there any new places to shop and eat and otherwise visit? Any new actual cars? Is there new loading music?

Also, does it indeed feel like a whole new take on the same game? Same familiar location, yet completely different at the same time?

To add to Leo's question; are all the old places to eat, hang out, activities and stuff from IV, still in the game? I assume, as there is a QUBED machine in the Lost HQ, that the activities are?

Also, can you drink at the bar round the corner? If so, can you get drunk on your own?

Just read it, seems like an awesome experience.

Is the increase in peds around Alderney a huge increase?

Also, can you "recruit" fellow lost members?

Not sure if there are new clothes or shops. I did notice another club's safehouse marked on the map while riding around though. Presumable, one could visit and arm wrestle/play cards/etc.., but the one I found was populated by Angels of Death who weren't exactly happy to see me. To say the least. tounge.gif Didn't see any new cars, and the game was already loaded up when we got there, so I don't know if there's new loading music. Was kinda hard to hear anything there anyway with everybody else blowing sh*t up on the other TVs.

And, yes, it does feel like a whole new take. At least to me. Fighting along side your club gives it a much different feeling. Not only are the fights more intense and more central to the story line (at least they were in the bits we saw), you feel more like part of a team than in any other GTA.

Didn't really notice a huge increase. But then I'm kinda spoiled by the traffic density slider on GTA4PC...

Didn't see any option to personally recruit members, but new people (they all have names) were automatically recruited to replace anyone who dies during a mission. Maybe you can later though? I don't know.

Nice read; I also checked the other ones that have been put up by the other fansites (GTA4.TV and GTAWH so far), and I recommended you guys read them as well. And like mentioned before, those L&D Elites are sooo juicy!

I am actually curious about the new additions to the radio. Did you listen to a new station or notice any new songs or commentary on the previously existing stations?

I'd really like to get an answer to this also, I'm curios to see if Johnny is stronger or slower etc. colgate.gif

I can answer if Johnny is slower.

Apparently, he is slower to maneuver. This is according to IGN or some gaming site. wink.gif

I heard that too, I was wondering if they upgraded his strength to compensate? That would be cool seeing as how in the trailer you see him socking people in the face and knocking them out one shot (they were cut scenes but whatever) tounge.gif .
