I'm trying to remember if there were any bunga bunga parties in GTA IV that I missed!

 

I'm going to guess "Dropping in" on the basis that before Luis shoots him, Ashvilli protests "it was the little latin girl, wasn't it? I thought she was of age!" and Silvio Burlusconi has been accused of getting jiggy with girls far too young for him.

Hmmm, the only Tommy Vercetti connection in GTA IV I can think of is the RIP graffiti. There's some on the wall in the stairs to the first safe house I think, so I'll guess "The Cousins Bellic", on the basis that Roman is a bit of a pain to begin with. I can't make any connection with the other two clues though...

It's probably about that usual, memorial grafitti but that doesn't ring any bells. Anyways, is it Wrong Is Right? United Liberty Paper guy sounds quitely like a dick at first, but gives Niko a great hand.

There's a Vic in "Boulevard Baby", but it's not Vance.

Cool - but I hadn't really thought of a good one myself in the event I got it right! This will probably be an anti-climax after the "Ladies Night" one. Here goes:
 
Edit: I'm going to add a second as on reflection, 1 is not a good clue, you'll either know it straight away or it will be no help at all.

Clue #1: Something to hang on your wall.
Clue #2: Russians

Nope. OK, since I think these are clues which reference stuff that I think is not widely known, I will give another two clues. (Plus an easier one tomorrow if no one gets it by then):

 

Clue #1: Something to hang on your wall.
Clue #2: Russians

Clue #3: If you take an unorthodox approach, you will find your opponents are armed with rocket launchers

Clue #4: Although this mission may well be completed earlier, this should and can be played after Niko unlocks Alderney to be chronologically consistent with other story missions in the trilogy.

Nope. I should point out that Clue #4 has no bearing to Niko's completely erroneous appearance in Alderney during the opening cut scene of TLAD.

 

I've edited the above to be more specific.

Yes you would be completely correct! Clue explanations:

 

Clue #1: Something to hang on your wall.

At the start of the mission, Dimitri will send Niko a picture of Roman held hostage. You have the option to call him. If you do so, It's probably the most angry you will hear Niko (outside of "That Special Someone" or the Wedding cut scene perhaps), threatening to cut Dimitri's face off and hang it on his wall.

 

Clue #2: Russians

The main antagonists in this mission are the Russians.

 

Clue #3: If you take an unorthodox approach, you will find your opponents are armed with rocket launchers

If you arrive by helicopter. the Russians have posted men on the roof armed with rpgs. You'll never meet them if you arrive by car. I believe it is the only story mission outside of "A Revengers Tragedy" or "Out of Comission" where one is used in game against Niko. If you haven't tried it and don't believe me, check this out:

Personally, I thought that was a fabulous detail by R*

 

Clue #4: Although this mission may well be completed earlier, this should and can be played after Niko unlocks Alderney to be chronologically consistent with other story missions in the trilogy.

Here's the logic:

Niko unlocks Alderney after completing "Three Leaf Clover".

Three Leaf Clover is part of TBOGT's opening cutscene.

Luis' early mission "Chinese Takeout" is therefore set after "Three Leaf Clover"

"Chinese Takeout" features Billy Grey in a cut scene, setting up Johnny Klebbitz prior to "This Sh*t's Cursed".

"This Sh*ts Cursed" is a prerequisite in TLAD for "Roman's Holiday"

"Roman's Holiday" is where Johnny kidnaps Roman just before "Hostile Negotiations".

Ergo, "Hostile Negotiations" should occur after Niko has unlocked Alderney!

This can be achieved by in practice putting off "Photo Shoot" for Playboy X, since this is an independent prerequisite for "Hostile Negotiations" (I always presumed this is because Niko needs the new phone to receive the picture message from Dimitri, although you can receive the one from Ray in "A Long Way to Fall" still if you do that mission before "Photo Shoot").

 

Well done TheUnholy, your turn.

I can say "Clue #4" sorted it out the most. Thanks.

I'll go for "...I'll Take Her" with the "Gracefully Taken" achievement. Always sticks in my mind as there was very little that was graceful about it.
