After the prologue we flow into the first mission. We join the protagonists in the same basement from the prologue except 15 years have passed and the young boys are now young men. The weak child who was punching the sack of potatoes is now a buffed man pounding away at an actual punching bag. "Alright enough of that sh*t. You're gonna rip the damn ceiling down"
Says the oldest brother Vinny as he and Mikey walk up the stairs. Tommy soon follows and joins his brothers in the living room upstairs. They take seats around coffee table and Mikey flips on the TV
"Good morning and welcome to Weazel News' morning broadcast. The date is December 8th 1983, President Carey gave a speech yesterday on the state of the Econ..."
The news anchor on screen fades out when the phone on the end table rings and Vinny answers it
"Yeah, Really? what happened? alright see ya there"
Vinny tells his brothers that he just got a call from Frankie that something went down last night and there is "Something" out back behind Carbonettis for the brothers to pick up. The brothers grab their coats and head out the front door. Once outside we can see that the ground is covered in a blanket of snow and Vinny's Albany is parked on the street. The brothers climb into the car and Vinny takes the wheel. The player takes control of Vinny with a route to Carbonettis marked on the radar. Follow the route across the snowy and slippery streets of South Benny to the restaurant only a few blocks away. When you arrive you are instructed to pull around to the loading dock behind the restaurant. Frankie meets you around back and pulls back a white sheet to reveal a mangled bloodied body. He says that the poor sap thought it would be a good idea to fraternize with the Mazetta's and the boss had him brought here for a "Talking to" and things got a little out of hand. The boys wrap the body in the sheet and load him into Vinny's trunk.
"Uhh what the f*ck are we gonna do with this guy?"
"Take him somewhere they wont find his poor ass"
Says Vinny as the route to an abandoned packing plant on the western edge of south Benny is revealed. Follow the route as it leads you across the district and when you arrive pull through the gate into the snowy lot. Vinny's Albany can barely trudge its way through the snow pack but will eventually make it to the old loading bay. When you make it back there Mikey gets out and opens up one of the dumpsters near the loading dock. The brothers lift the cadaver out of the trunk and lift it into the dumpster. The brothers get back into the car and head out. Follow the route to Vaughns bar which is located back on the brother's part of town only a couple blocks from their house. When you arrive pull into the marker arrow in the parking lot. The brothers head inside and start shooting the sh*t with the female bar tender Christy and order a round of beers. The camera then fades out and rejoins the brothers about a couple hours later when they have worked up a pretty decent buzz.The boy's uncle Salvatore is shown walking in the front door of the bar.
"What the hell guys getting drunk this early?"
Says Sal. And after he says that another drunken fool pushes sal out of the way and he falls to the floor. The brothers get angered at this and you are seamlessly put in control of Tommy as the drunken brawl begins. It is Tommy and his brothers against three other drunken idiots. Fist fighting is more difficult when you are drunk. You are actions are slower and moving about is harder. Basically what the objective at this point is to just deal as much damage as possible. After you have dealt enough damage to the opponents the back out of the fight and leave. The boys then stumble out the back door of the bar and start walking down the street where they are spotted by a cop. The cop takes them in for public drunkenness and takes them to the police station in South Benny. We next see the brothers sitting in a holding cell a few hours later when a guard come sup and allows them to go. They meet the Cavaletti families lawyer Oscar. He says he has arranged for all fines relating to the ordeal to be paid and has gotten Vinny's car out of impound. You spawn as Vinny out back of the police station next to your car. Climb in and the two other brothers hop in as well. Night has fallen and the day is winding to an end. Head back to the Tomasetto family home and pull into the marker arrow out front. You respawn as Mikey as he climbs out of bed the next morning with the phone ringing down stairs and his mother yelling at him to answer it. You can either answer the phone or get dressed and explore the city as Mikey. The other two brothers are not available at this time.
