Reiner GTA IV Q&A

Recommended Posts

ybakker

NOOOOOOO. No airplanes!!!!

 

UGH, I was so looking forward to flying a Hydra upsidedown on Broadway.

 

Hopefully, there will be a higher fly limit. Not like VC. And hopefully, helicopter physics will be better so that you can do flips and stuff.

Just to point out to all the newbs joining in time for this game's release, when you quote, try not to repeat anything and everything you can easily access, like the previous post for example, or a heading that starts a TOPIC, Getting back to the one question I saw brought up, that refers to communicating to people/peds in the game.

As most know, this more or less involved getting a reaction by using the D-pad for pos/neg responses, and was pretty entertaining. To not have this is to also do away with alotta excellent humor in the game and chance combat with a ped as well! I read in the GI article humor will NOT be lacking and that is a very positive sign to me, it makes me laugh everytime I play with something new I haven't seen or heard!!

The second question is such pointless spam.  Those sites must be awful if that's a sample of editorial quality.  I'm thinking of turning on parental controls on my computer just to block me from accidentally going to those sites.

 

You better do that. I can recommend it, almost everything you said about their editorial quality is true :X

Well first of all, theres no proof in his words..Have you ever heard of this guy? If you have then fair enough. But if you were a struggling games journalist what would you do? Claim you had seen the biggest game of 2007!.

 

I mean theres no evidence whatsoever. Infact theres more against him then anything. I like Midnight club, its a good racing game, and thats what it is exactly. GTA is an all round arcade fun brawl of a ride. GTA had by FAR the best handling of any game of its type. Midnight club handling in GTA just wouldnt seem right.

 

The plane thing. Yea he has a point. Ive never been to NYC, but isnt there like 2-3 huge Airports. 2-3 Airports with no Air travel bar Heli's would be such a downfall to the gameplay.

 

I have to say it though if it is true. Its a damn shame and im gonna be SOOO disappointed with this game if its missing core elements that were in SA. Yes I know its a new engine. Yes I know its Next-Gen. But I cant give them sympathy for that if the series takes a step back. It wont help competition for a start as it sounds to me like its gonna be Saints row with Helicopters. What im looking for..and I should hope you all are is a NEXT GEN GTA!

 

Would R* let a random dood unveil SUCH a large lack of gameplay? I dont think they would. Im waiting until it comes from a genuine R* Employee myself.

Looking at the guy who quoted all the answers and gave his opinion, when you talked about the exclusive content (thinking it would be on the ps3 disc from the beginning) well that wouldn't be very "Xbox 360 exclusive" now would it. As it has been said that it is only exclusive to the 360 in the beginning, obviously it won't be on the ps3 disc.

Lets hope they save the guys with brains for the official questions. I think my question would be something stupid though...But something I dearly missed from SA

 

well...presuming we can swim.

Assuming this guy is right about everything, my only remaining question is can we swim. I'd settle for VCS type swimming ability. I really hate avoiding water accidents.

Now if we won't have swimming or buyable properties (at least one little house?), those would be steps back, but then, this isn't final and isn't sure.

You can't make a GTA without an option to buy clothes and cut your hair, i even think that you can work out, even though the mysterious guy did not.

If the features of GTA in San An were cut by the half, I rather keep my PS2, and still play San An. I mean, why the hell am I gonna spend money buying a PS3 for a game that has less features than it's predecessor. You know what I mean? It's just something not worth doing, and something actually quite disappointing. Like I mentioned before, Gym and working out was a basis for me into buying San An.

 

You guys may buy GTA4 for graphics improvements (if only). I dont think that's a main basis.

Swimming I would agree with, unless they stick to only Black dudes can swim thing. But I wouldn't see things as a step backwards, keep in mind that GTAIV is based on an entirely new system/engine than previous incarnations.

 

If you consider what was in GTAIII compared to San Andreas which was some time afterwards and is based on the same engine the improvments were markedly different. Even more so if you use the comparison between GTA2 and GTAIII now that was mind-blowing.

 

I personally think that the Engine in GTAIV is quite new and they still don't know quite what they've created yet so I'm quite looking forward to any follow-ups to see how far the series has come.

Brenny Asks: Is it still the same three cars over and over again like previous games we've seen?

Reiner: I’m not sure which GTA you’ve played, but I have always had more than three cars to choose from. There’s a good chance you’ll see more taxi cabs than usual, but if anything, there should be plenty of rides to choose from.

 

Why is that a hard question to understand? I know what he meant, why such a stupid answer.

 

Of all the people to play GTAIV for the first time, they pick this Jackass. confused.gif - Dome Piece

Then again, there are about a million better ways to phrase the question. I don't think he's a jackass because he couldn't spend his limited time deciphering someone else's broken english.

 

And man, you guys in general, asked some really dumbass questions. The Quebec one was hilarious, he should have just left his answer at "No". tounge2.gif

i was really disappointed with these 15 questions. The guy was a bit of a dick too. A lot of the questions were so close ended. Just simple questions that an be answered yes and no. There was no question that made me think oh cool nice extra info

1. Reiner is not just some random dude, he has been one of the head guys at gameinformer(arguably the best gaming mag) for a LONG time

 

2. The said the camera angle on the driving was similar to midnight club, not that the cars handled or behaved like in that game

 

3. Its not going to be missing the CORE elements of san andreas, because the CORE elements have been in all the last gen gta games (extra fluff that might not be in this one are not CORE elements). Im 100% sure there will be fluff things in 4 that werent in any others.

 

4. He didnt unveil a large lack of gameplay, he just elaborated on the very little he saw

 

 

PHEW!

I think it was a cutscene.

 

He couldn't see very well from the street, so he wanted a better look?

This was an awesome article. Thanks Reiner. The weird part is that I read this entire Q&A article at www.cheatcc.com in their news section. They mention GI, but still, that doesn't give them the right to run this on their site.

There's NO WAY GI would have given them permission to run this, would they? If not, shut them down. They've stolen their last piece of content I hope. Scammers.

I'm surprised alot of you haven't added all the pieces of info together and consider work is still well at hand on most of the elements, if not all. It seems to me the weather and lighting, along with textures are the farthest along. GI mentioned the targetting is under development, nothing to mention there for now. I can't imagine not swimming, but anything like VCS would really suck, I can't get anywhere with that limitation! Climbing is something lacking from all the 3D versions, not a useless feature at all.

 

Also consider Andrew was playing a 15 minute demo with preset elements, as he said only the one car that he saw, more over, the truck swerving to the sidewalk isn't too new, there are elements of that in San An, drivers who prefer not wait for a traffic light or car parked. I REALLY want the responses to peds on the street, and more info on whether their dailogue is even more impressive with new AI.

The mention of smoking and sitting on benches is nothing new from San An, at least. Did I mention any of that already?!

I'd love a follow up Q&A with my question, but I doubt he saw elements of the freeway in the given demo. As far as 360 content, with PS3 online as well, it may eventually come to PS3 but the BluRay will have some soft of advantage over the Xbox. The larger HDD may also have added benefit. Future installments on the PS3 system should really improve as it is a new console
