If you're hanging out with a friend (let's say Jacob), and you call him while you're hanging out with him, Niko will have a unique response by apologising saying he's messing around with the phone and he doesn't know how to use it.

I did that while hanging out with Roman and Niko said:"I'm just messing around".

He has multiple responses.

There is always a Jamaican with a helmet on in front of Homebrew Cafè. He seems to be friendly tho, even if you punch him.

Only after the mission "Shadow". Before, he will fight you, even with shotguns/uzi's.

'Stupid phone'

'This is me being stupid'

 

:lol: I've always wondered what those voice files were used for, now I know :lol:

It's interesting to find out that something was in fact used when you've been thinking they've been unused all the time. :pp

A small strip of land was cut from North Alderney. Only two references to this land strip remain in the game:

Well, I meant look to the right of the casino in the picture. You can see the strip of land there.

Niko can be dragged when stealing a car, just like the cops. Today i tried to steal a Sentinel and the woman driving was scared and drove off the second Niko has his hands on the door handle. He was dragged away for a few meters, and when she stopped, he let it go.
Maybe this is nothing new for some of you, but was the first time it happened to me, six years playing.

I noticed not long time ago that you can find electricians fixing the power suply thingies with a wrench in the top of some poles around the city (the one i saw was in north holland, pretty close to the tower where you can find the sniper rifle, near the sea).

To this day, I've never seen this, but I've always looked kept my eyes peeled since I heard of this weeks after getting IV.

You can use the computer in the entrance of

Spoiler
where the obese guard is often chilling. I think he gets upset when you use the computer and starts yelling at you and pointing his pistol at you, like he doesn't want you coming across his porn or something.

Not true, you can freely use this computer in the same way as in Roman's Apartment. Guard may attack you if use O/B button to close the web browser. Since it's attack/push button he may feel attacked.

Yeah, I've seen that like twice in the 6 years I've had the game.

If a car stalls and it can't be turned back on, you can usually get out and kick the front of the car and it'll start up on your next attempt. This is useful for online, where the dial a number trick is not available. Sometimes, the car will start on fire after kicking it, though.

It's possible for Niko to grab onto objects while in ragdoll mode. It's very rare, but it happens.

 

I jumped off of a building in an attempt to land on a fire escape on the opposite side of an alleyway. I smacked into the side of it and fell down one level, and Niko grabbed the rail with one arm and hung on in ragdoll mode for a second. Next, Niko switched to animation mode, and was hanging on the side of the fire escape with both hands ready to climb.

 

There is an example of it on one of BenBuja's Blooper videos, if you want to scout it out. I can't remember which one.

Was killing cops after Johnny got a wanted level during a gang shootout. Terry kills the cop shooting me, and the cop beside him said he'd take care of his teenage daughter. I evaded the cops after hearing that. Kinda hit me hard for some reason. Never heard that line before.) usually hear them say call my mom and wife.

During Bleed Out If you abandon Roman's Taxi it will trigger a cutscene of Niko and Roman getting off a Bus, which cannot be used as public transportation during gameplay.

 

Copied straight from the wiki, I tested it and it worked. The only time in the whole HD era where you can be a passenger in the bus

I just noticed on the Ruiner it has a number plate frame with "Ruining imports since 67".

Muscle for life.

Once you complete all the U.L.P.C. missions the guy calls Niko and asks him to lay low whilst he looks for the guy Niko is looking for. After that if you go on a killing spree, get a wanted level and die/get busted, you will get a call from the U.L.P.C. guy who says that he warned Niko to lie low. Niko simply replies "I can't help myself sometimes" and the call ends.

 

Just another awesome detail I noticed today.

Yeah, and for some reason when Little Jacob smokes his ganja in the car, he constantly throws out cans and boxes. I don't know why. lol

You can also skip rockets off of solid objects if you shoot them at the correct angle. I've managed to skip a rocket off of a car's windshield a few times.
