This is a cool alternative to packages and is in some ways a nice easter egg to the song 99 Luftballons by Nena.

 

Speaking of which in response to norniron1992, I doubt it will be on the VCS radio as it was on Wave 103 in Vice City. Funnily enough the song was released in 1983 so it may have been better suited to VCS.

I think there will be normal hidden packages as well. These 'red balloons' will be naother collectable like the oysters etc in SA. If tey were hidden packages it would say '1 of 100 hidden packages found'. This is just another collectable added on by Rockstar to lengthen the game playing time. It doesn't take up much space to map coordinates of an item.

That's exactly what I think too.

 

as you said, In every other 3d GTA game theres been a message saying x of 100 hidden packages found. I'm sure they havn't removed that now.

You're just wrong. dozingoff.gif SA did not have "hidden packages". It had tags, snapshots, horseshoes, and oysters. GTA3, VC, and LCS had hidden packages.

 

I think the balloons will be the main collectable in VCS. (Whether they can contain drugs is another question tounge.gif because GTA3 and VC hidden package looked like some kind of drug container...)

 

Perhaps we'll see oysters as well. Since, Vic can swim, they could include like 50 oysters. But I think Vic will get better swimming skills from the Lifesaving Submission. So maybe the oysters won't be included confused.gif I dunno...

 

I wonder what the reward for the balloons are... Just weapons I hope...

I agree fully, ybakker. If balloons aren't the onlt hidden package, there probably should be 50 oysters also.

i like this idea! whats great about it is that if you infact, have to pop them, who says they have to be in reachable range? they could be in unreachable places like just-visible in a window of a building, so you'd have to get a good vantage point and snipe it =p. ok, maybe a little farfetched but you get the idea, there isnt that neccessity of having to be able to physically reach it.

No, that's a great idea. Or right at the top of a building. Or right out at sea. The window idea is great. Like you have to get on a building opposite the window and snipe it.

This is sounding sooo good!!!!!!!1111oneonetwo rah.gif

im thinking that there might be more things to find other than the red balloons also. Besides it not being 100 it will make people look for them in different altitudes in the game. Like ther very top of a building or floating in the sky. I think they might put in 200 domestobots or t.v's. Domo ari gotto mr. roboto. biggrin.gif

Probably a connection to the song ie. its sung by Nena and Ninity nine is similar in sound kinda ph34r.gif

Thats what I was going to say. Suppose they float upwards. Whenever you go somewhere you are always looking upwards for a balloon. Cool!

I know this is kinda sick but, I wonder what Jack Thompson would do if it was Pop 99 Cherries. bored.gif (For the people that know that joke.)

 

*Back on topic*

It would be kinda cool if they played a part of the song when you pop one.

I've never heard the song sung by 'Nena'

 

The German version is on GTA Vice City, on Wave 103

 

 

Has du etwas Zeit fur mich

Dann singe ich ein lied fur dich

Von 99 lufballons

 

it is an interesting choice of packages, are we sure these are not ON TOP of Secret packages, SA had Graffing, Horse Shoes and Photo Ops, Vice had a coke vases, GTA3 had white packages, LCS had the rocker symbol.

 

it just seems strange to go from a pickup (horseshoes, Vases, Rocker symbol and packages) to an actual task, like having 2 aim for a Balloon

there are 99 red balloons because of the song duhh

Now was that really neccesary? You just bumped a topic that was dead for 5 months. And did you provide any new info we all don't know, NO. So next time think about what your going to say, and use proper grammar bud. wink.gif
