October Gamepro Info

Recommended Posts

ryuclan

Well I was walking home when I saw an issue of Gamepro, with a rather ugly picture of Niko on it. I dont have a scanner but if anyone can scan this issue thanks a billion.

 

Summary: Well in the table of contents there is a section titled "Grand Theft Auto Does Not Pass Go" and there is this little story about how GTA is delayed and they conveniently misspelled Niko's name (Spelling it Niko Belletin confused.gif ).

 

In the actual article it describes the demo we've heard about so many times before, but there are a few things I don't recall seeing before.

 

-There is a billboard for such things as "Shark Credit Cards," "Pirate Music," and for "The Whiz," which is the type of phone Niko uses.

 

-In a caption the HUD is described as "minimalist to its core" they say there is a mini-map, a "low-key" cash counter, and that it is more clean making GTA IV more immersive.

 

-It says that Ammu-nation does not exist. (Think we knew that, but decided to write it anyway)

 

-It is confirmed that the rocket launcher will return

 

-On his way to meet lil Jacob it says that Niko "passes by shivering bums, and chain-smoking punks who group in nearby doorways."

 

-A random woman yells "This s*** is bananas" from her car.

 

-A real-time fare meter pops up when Niko enters the cab.

 

-As the cab drives the camera pans around it.

 

-Booming radio music (courtesy of a well-known classic act we cant yet name) pumps from the taxi.

 

-The little green guy on crosswalks is crisp and clear (wow inlove.gif )

 

-GTA has received a "massive combat overhaul."

 

-Every location in GTA has an address.

 

-Pedestrians are described as "A woman holding a grocery bag, street urchins smoking cigarettes, and a power-exec barking impatiently into a cell phone."

 

-Gamepro confirms that the Sanchez, and the PCJ are returning.

 

-In the new wanted mode, the dots with swirls around them are cops in cars.

 

-Clothing in GTAIV is described as "customizable, and also realistic."

 

-Shooting: The cover system borrows elements of Gears of War, and Rainbow Six: Las Vegas. It also says that the aiming is a Resident Evil 4, over the shoulder style.

 

 

 

Also with this article a few speculations are made about the delay of GTA IV. Here they are:

 

1.PS3 Problems: Developing for the PS3 was harder then thought.

 

2.Online Tuning: R* wants to get this just right. It is their first time.

 

3.The Halo 3 effect: It could be more effective to launch a game early next year.

 

4. ESRB Crackdown: R* needs time to make sure that the content is not too much.

 

5.It Simply Wasn't Ready: They just weren't ready to release the game.

 

 

Just to say this again, the above reasons for delay are PURE SPECULATION.

Cool. I just hope this is real, and not some bullsh*t. The taxi thing is nice, and I am psyched about the Sanchez!

-A random woman yells "This s*** is bananas" from her car.

Could this be an indication to 2 things -

 

1) The intelligence of the AI used in pedestrians now lets them use more speech and in this case sing?

 

2) Revealing a licensed song on one of the radio stations, in this case Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani?

 

Of course it could all be coincidence but I'll stick by my guess and wait eagerly to see the songs that will be in the game.

Thanks for the info. I am starved for any new information.

 

They said the Sanchez is returning. Wonder what use a dirt bike would be in NYC? Maybe central park or some motocross events at Madison Square?

AWESOME. This small little bit of info is what i have been craving for weeks now. Now i can sit in my office and daydream about the new features. I think the first thing im gunna do, after the game loads up is, turn up the volume, close my eyes and just listen to the hustle and bustle of a living city dangling at the tips of my fingers. This will help my friday pass. Thanks to the OP. You just made my day. lol.gif

in america there's a white man for walk. well it varies, some places have "walk" and others have the white man. walk is always white. the words "don't walk" are always orangish red and, again, that varies because lots of times it's an orangish red hand instead.

Rashon.

If the Sanchez and PCJ-600 are back, then that's a hint that vehicles with the same name in the past GTAs should be back.
