Niko can now escape the LCPD by entering brownstone tenements.

 

-i cant figure this out.Brownstore tenements?????

 

Basically brownstone tenements seem to be a block of apartments or houses.

 

I think it mentions in the Official XBOX 360 Magazine UK Grand Theft Auto IV Preview that Niko is seen running through some peoples house.

ok looking at opm italy and 360 magazine previews i came to some interesting quotes.

 

 

Liberty City (not based on Manhattan only, but also on other boroughs, take a look at the boxes for more information) will be enormous, more or less the size of the entire state of San Andreas and moving from one end of the city to the other will take a lot of time

 

-so maybe Lc will be bigger than San Andreas after all

 

 

Not only, during the demo I saw the protagonist walk on the sidewalk and approach a bus stop: then on the screen an icon appeared that showed timetables for buses.

 

-interesting,lots of interesting speculation coming on about this

 

 

in the alleys it will be easy to see the homeless chatting around a fire to warm up

 

-this is seen in driver Paralell Lines

 

 

girls come out of various boutiques loaded with bags and packages.

 

-there could be tons of enterable buildings and people wont just walk in shops like they do in San Andreas they will shop as well have a life too...

 

 

it’s not that different from San Andreas

 

-meaning we will have a lot of similar side tass as in GTA SA?

 

 

For example, in order to steal a car it will no longer be sufficient simply opening the car door and driving off as if that has been your car for years. Now you will see Niko approach the car sneakily, break the glass with his elbow, use the injection cables to start the car and only after all this will you be able to drive away

 

-this is so realistic butt the problem is what will you do if you are chased by someone and in a need of a quick getaway car?

 

 

Shaking the police will be far from easy: changing the color of the car won’t be enough

 

i think this confirms Pay n spray will return but wont have effect on your wanted level

 

from 360 mag those were from OPM italy

 

 

When Niko pulls out a weapon, the camera will place at his shoulder and it appears a crosshair at the center of the screen. It's possible to lock a target and move laterally to avoid shots

 

-they said they will improve aiming,thats what they did

 

 

Niko can now escape the LCPD by entering brownstone tenements.

 

-i cant figure this out.Brownstore tenements?????

edit:now i know!!

 

 

Our in-game demo, running on an Xbox 360 in front of us so we can see they're not cheating or anything, starts off with Niko at Roman's Broker taxi depot

 

- you will start the game in Broker(Brooklyn)

 

 

Vehicles we have seen or know about so far include ships, boats, cars, elevated subway trains, helicopters and a cable car. Oh, and a rollercoaster

 

-this is funny. you will be able to drive a rollercoaster or just enter it for fun??Ships??? Big ones???

 

 

couch potato occupants screaming as he tears through the back yard and over a chain-link fence, helicopters whupping above him

 

-ouch you will be able to see people inside their houses.Cool yet more proof of a living city R has made

 

 

]will take place high in skyscrapers, which you will be able to throw people off.

 

-die hard ....bitch...

 

 

Rockstar says that hand-to-hand combat is undergoing a thorough overhaul and will feel much more natural in GTA IV

 

-I think we all liked the way fighting was in GTA sa and GTA VCS so why change it?Oh i forgot its new generation...right

 

 

But Niko's tired of walking and as this is, after all, Grand Theft Auto, he decides to boost a parked car

 

-infinite stamina cheat anyone?

 

 

 

Niko flips the car radio to another Eastern European-sounding dance station
-SRBIJA!!!!

 

 

You are not a russian,but there will be russian gangs

 

- a SRb maybe

 

 

]And loads of the ones we liked are dead. we want to get some new fans for the game ideally and a new audience, not just keep the old ones happy

 

-maybe you'll lose some,but at least this confirms there wont be any old caracters returning.

 

 

and certain people to go see just to hang out with.

 

-hang with me and i'll buy you a lollypop.No really this is going to be interesting

 

 

And we did ask Rockstar about GTA IV Achievements and the planned Xbox 360 expansion episodes for 2008,

but we didn't know how to write that much laughter.

 

- i cant figure this out what does this mean.Please explane!!

 

 

sorry had to repost so people would figure it out!!

There was quite a fair bit of new information in that article. I'm impressed. Rockstar really are good at getting fans excited for games because I can't wait much longer for GTA IV before raiding the Rockstar Headquarters.

Because this has been a literal translation from an Italian magazine, it just means that the tennements are made of brown-stone, it's not a particular style of building it's just a loose description of the buildings.

 

In Glasgow they are usually desribed as Sandstone Tennements... or dumps tounge.gif

They asked the question about the 'episodic content' and Dan Houser probably laughed loud and a lot, they probably could have written it and it would have looked like

 

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

 

Whatever that might be in Italian, might need translation.
