"Things will be different"

How about instead of wreaking havoc on the world, you do ONLY good deeds - like a Mother Theresa type figure. Take the firefighting and ambulance sub missions and expand upon it. You could deliver babies, be a lifeguard, hunt down moneygrubbing CEOs, be a priest, work at a homeless shelter, be a part of emergency services (like restoring power due to down power lines), be a medic who flies helicopters, give money away instead of stealing it. volunteer as a big brother, help mentally challenged kids, work telethons, etc.

The only thing that comes to my mind when I think of gta being "different" is simply a huge amount of online play, and more support from r* with bugs etc..

 

ps. EEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! To the post above, who would want to deliver a baby in a game? Although I do like the sound of lifeguard missions and stuff.

wouldnt be much like gta

Seems to be the idea.

yes, but that is one thing i wouldnt want to be different. The clothes and stuff is cool and all, but i dont know about the character. Like everyone has liked all the past characters, but if they had been able to customize them completely, would people really just like a "voice"?

How about instead of being a console/pc game, it becomes a board game. That would be REALLY different.

Just a theory... What if GTA IV will be set in Eastern Europe, just after the fall of communism? Certainly a time of change for everyone 'Things will be different' especially for would be mob bosses. The industrial hammering sound (during the countdown clock) could be a reference to stereotypical East European industry. The old hammer & sickle imagery. Again, just a theory.

I was thinking the same thing, but in the opposite direction of building a Soviet style takeover.

 

"Things will be different" sounds like a motto for a revolution. Instead of the usual fighting for democracy against an oppressive regime, it would be really new to be on the inside of a revolution helping to build a brutal new oppressive regime. The story could have battles against the old state, working up from insurgency to becoming the main force in the city, internal power struggles, choosing of loyalties, crushing of rebellions, hunting down the malcontents.

but you have to admit, incorporating playing cards would be cool. Like that one game, where you scan the cards. Like go and buy an atomic bomb, scan it, and then KABOOM. Possibly even cars.

 

not

Yeah Like we get to play osama or a member of al'quaida fighting the fascist regime that is America. that would be awesome. Hmm but then it would have to be set in america again and that would suck.

 

Either way, I hope one of the "things" to change will be the location, no, no, not america AGAIN pleaseeeee noooooooo. Ha there are plenty more places in the "world" that have more appeal than America. How about Russia, South Africa, IraQ???, Ireland. Haha

This give me a question mark. A lot of games screwed up at sequels, and all the new games suck because they are concentrated on graphics, not gamplay and fun and a lot of things to do (like in San Andreas). This 'different' scares me, what if GTA IV will be a dissapointment?

 

 

Still we have to be optimistic biggrin.gif , also different means the webpage will change on Thursday, revealing the long awaited trailer and other info.

"Things could be different" could just mean you press L1 to target instead of R1 on PS3, and that you press A instead of Trigger on XboX to accelerate.

It said "Things WILL be different." I seriously doubt that. Rockstar are professionals, not 8 year olds.

I didn't read all 14 pages so sorry if this has been said, but we really shouldn't be surprised that things will be different. This isn't GTA: "INSERT RANDOM CITY HERE". This is a numbered iteration. The jump from GTA 2 to GTA III was revolutionary to the series and to gaming in general. The games following GTA III up until the present, while adding new features (swimming, flight, motorcylces, etc.) haven't truly added that much onto what GTA III was at its core. So yes "Things will be different".

 

I'm not sure why some of you expected Rock* to sit on their hands with this one. GTA:SA was great, I had months, years even, worth of fun with that game. But if we're all honest with ourselves, if Rock* released what was essentially the same game with new features it would get old fast. We, the diehards, would play it and enjoy it, but even we would realize we were playing the same damn game over again. A game that wasn't worthy of the IV at the end of the title. GTA isn't the only series that saves revolutionary changes for its numbered iterations. It's a tradition of the whole gaming industry.

 

Honestly, I don't see them matching the jump they made from GTA 2 to GTA III only because a change like that comes only so often. Super Mario 64 comes to mind. Someone jokingly brought up time earlier. While they're obviously not making this game in the 4th dimension, there could be something to the concept of time playing a role. I could definitely see a story revolving around multiple characters in different timelines that somehow are inter-connected. The quote could also (and most likely) be referencing a move to a setting outside the US. That would certainly be different. GTA has always been a caricature of American culture so it'd be interesting to see Rock* take on London or Japan. The only other change I could imagine warranting the "IV" is GTA IV being a MMO. Done the right way, a MMO GTA would be truly revolutionary. And the right way doesn't entail it being a giant deathmatch.

Hmmmmmmmmm

 

''Guys, I just got an email by our Take2 PR. It linked to the countdown page, and the mail only contained this text:

 

"A DIFFERENT FUTURE"

 

O__o maybe... just maybe... we're asking the wrong question? Not "where is it" but "WHEN IS IT?"

 

 

Interesting...

Okay, I have two new ideas on how it could be different:

 

1) You play as more than one main character. After a few missions as one character, you switch over to another character and see things from his or her point of view, and you even interact with that first character that you were controlling before. And then after a few missions, you switch to another character after that and so forth, so you see things in the eyes of more than one person. Maybe in one of the missions, your current character gets killed and then you switch to another character. You may or may not get to choose how you switch characters. Either way is awesome.

 

2) Or maybe... you don't have missions the way we have been having them in GTA games in the past. There's no conceivable "start" or "end" to the missions. So no going to some glowing circle to start the mission, and no "Mission Passed!" text coming up after you do something. You just do what you gotta do, and save the game when it's convenient.

 

You get calls from multiple bosses, each wanting something different from you. You just get the call, and you don't have to do it if you don't want to. But your choices affect the plot. Since you are getting multiple calls from multiple bosses, your choices on who to help affects politics between any two bosses who are part of the same mafia family. But you have to be careful how you choose, because some bosses have the personality to come after you if you ignore their calls, or don't want to help them. Since there is no start or end time to missions, the bosses who don't like you might send goons after you at ANY time.

 

Also, you might just run into a boss by pure chance, and he might talk to you then and give you a mission (which you might not do). You can say no to his face, which you would get away with if you and he have good rapport, or if it's a shaky relationship then he might get offended. He might just think you're too scared and that would affect his respect for you. Or maybe you offer him a better idea (like some other character with better sniper skills should do it) and he thinks even more highly of you because you were thinking in the best interests of the family, not for yourself, and that's why you gave up a high paying mission.

Undercover cop, New York City, Future...could be anything. We will know soon.

I think when they say "things will be different" it will be in line with the storyline. I bet you that the trailer will be of some criminal in a city run by cops or rival gang members (or something along that line) and at the end of the trailer (maybe talking to the cops or fellow gang members) he says "things are going to be different".

 

Got to love R* to start people arguing in such early days! biggrin.gif

I won't say i told you so........... But I think I was closest!

RaQnaR0ck-an undercover cop is out of possibilities as they would never copy a sh*tty game like True Crime NYC.
