We got a copy delivered at work today...has this leaked to the net yet? I don't have a scanner, just a digital camera, and yes I know we can't post scans here. There's not much point anyway, I think all the screenshots are the same as the ones that leaked yesterday. Too tired to type up the whole article, but here's what they had to say about the new weapons:

QUOTE
Gay Tony has a plethora of new weapons - here are some of our favourites.

STICKY BOMBS
For some premeditated destruction try sticking these to moving vehicles.

AA-12 This is the weapon we used to blast helicopters out of the sky.

P-90
This will remind long time gamers of the infamous RCP from Goldeneye.

M249
Put it this way - a single bullet strafe will cause vehicles to explode.


They only got to demo two missions, the train one and one that sounds a lot like the one my friend played way back when. It's a lot of typing, so I'll only post the in depth playthroughs of those missions if someone asks.

QUOTE
The new gun [P-90] fires an unprecedented amount of bullets, most of which are lodged into the flesh of the aforementioned goons as we head towards our target. Firing point blank at one of the corpses we noticed that the sheer force of the fire actually sends cadavers skidding across the floor. The power is absolutely mindblowing.


They didn't get to play with the tank, but say that "this turret is not for show."

They conclude

QUOTE
This is the Grand Theft Auto you asked for - the all-singing, all-dancing, all-exploding GTA that takes the solid foundations of LIberty City and reinvents it as a playground for the new toys Rockstar has given us.


If someone's posted this already then just delete this, I don't a lot of time for internet tonight so I haven't done a thorough check.

Sounds brilliant. The P90 sounds like it packs some real firepower, and I'm very glad to see the Satchel Charges return.

Also, sounds very interesting that they used the AA12 to take out a chopper. Great to finally see the M249 too.

I hope they aren't exaggerating too much.

The M249? Sweet freaking YES!!

I assume that the turret remark means that it won't just be a water cannon? Any other interesting info on the other stuff?

The reception of the game seems to be pretty good so far. This will probably be the definitive game out of the three.

Yeah, they said it took three or four direct hits to bring one down.

Dude, it's all just one game. I think of it more as the complete GTA IV being the definitive GTA experience up to this point, both gameplay wise and storywise.

nice, does it say anything about the storyline? does it mention anything about the gomez brothers or wily valerio?

oh, and does it say if bahama mamas is the only new club? it's not clear if bahama mamas = maisonette 9.

They're different clubs, and they both seem to be open. We can see inside Bahama Mamas in the trailer, and we can see rooms with posters for Maisonette 9 in the trailer too.

None of the above, I'm afraid. They were pretty light on the storyline, because they were too busy gaying out over the weapons. The most detailed they got was this:

QUOTE
Our Gay Tony demo starts on a chopper. You are LL and you're straddling the open door of the helicopter, waiting to start your mission: a raid on the corporate offices of Liberty City's ice hockey team the Rampage. [lol] You'll have to fight through a platoon of goons, armed to the teeth, before eventually busting into the offices. But first you're going to have to sneak into the building quietly - which won't be easy. The only safe way in is via the roof, and access is strictly prohibited. Ultimately there's only one option open to you. You're going to have to parachute your way in.


The mission ends with you sending your target through the top floor window of the skyscraper, and then rather than fight the hordes of security, you simply jump out after him with your parachute.

i wonder if by "go after him" they mean you just let the bastard fall to his death, then float away.

Oh, crap, some f*cker's hacked into my photobucket account and uploaded some pictures that could get me into some trouble. I tried to take them down but they changed the password!

Can someone try to hack in and take them down? It would be a big help, thank you.

how would they hack in and put the pictures up on your account? unless both of you have the magazine with the pictures.
you won't get into trouble.
the only thing you'll get into trouble on here is posting a link to the scans.
i wonder what the name of that helo is with the rockets and the machine guns.
i can't tell what it says.

Oh dear. The hackers mumbled something to suggest the parachute being able to be used at any time, and the APC acting pretty much like the Rhino. They also posted a hard to make out image of the new helicopter's (that fires missles) name, but I couldn't tell what it was other than that it starts with an "R."

According to the hacked picture from what i can read...

"Tanks for the memories. The tank is back and causing more destruction than ever in keeping with Gay Tonys committment to making this the biggest GTA yet. Rockstar has thrown in an old ....."

It goes on to mention shooting down a helicopter from the sky in the second paragraph.

This pretty much confirms that this is the Rhino.

Cheers.

It also has a sub-title saying rags to riches. I can't read the smaller print, but do you think this time round we'l be better off?
