MTV Previews GTA IV

Recommended Posts

Check out a brand new preview from MTV's Stephen Totilo here:

 

http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1583276/20080312/id_0.jhtml

 

- Totilo spent two hours playing the game.

- An in-game text message was replied to by the editor.

- Totilo said that he thought the Statue of Happiness looked a lot like Hillary Clinton.

- "Extra guns and health packs don't float a few inches above the ground, waiting to be walked through. They lie on flat surfaces, waiting to be picked up. A Rockstar rep told MTV News that the developers didn't even want those found items to glow, as they do now, because that's not realistic. But a concession was made so players could more easily identify what they could and should try to grab in this world."

- "GTA IV felt less like a video game because there is no "Mission Complete" graphical flourish as there had been in old games, just a brief instrumental riff to indicate a job's successful finish. Icons in the upper-right corner of the screen still display the player's equipped weapon and money, but they are reduced in size, subdued to blacks, grays and whites, doing as little as possible to distract the player's eyes."

- "We took a helicopter for a joyride, in this case, in the PS3 build, traversing the city with haste, thrusting with the R2 button, rudder-turning with L1 and R1. The scenery was viewable from an optional in-cockpit, first-person view, the densely detailed Liberty City rolling by so quickly underneath that it's little wonder that the private jets parked at the game's airport are not usable. They'd be too fast for this game's amount of real estate. Mostly we used the helicopter to land on skyscrapers and in busy intersections, the rotor blades magically hurting no one — not the least of whom Niko, despite what would probably be classified as hard landings."

 

Also, new screenshots:

I like the phone usage

 

'This last mission, named "Call and Collect," featured Niko helping a dirty cop by shaking down a blackmailer. We did this — almost — without firing a shot, relying instead on the power of cell phone technology. The blackmailer was hanging out near a fountain in a small park, though the game didn't indicate exactly which person milling about in that area was him. Instead, Niko received a text message on his ever-available cell phone. With a few presses of the controller, we could call the texted number, causing the blackmailer's phone to ring. Once the call commenced, the goal was to walk Niko through a crowd of people, looking and listening for someone talking on their cell phone. We heard him first and eventually stood face to face, with Niko's and the blackmailer's phones to their ears, their voices echoing through the phones and the virtual thin air. The blackmailer almost ran. Niko's gun stopped him. And then Niko ran from the cops. Mission just about complete.'

Thanks Jordan! Those are my favorite screens so far. So beautiful, especially for real-time.

I simply cannot get over the explosion pic. Absolutely amazing. It's cinematic quality,

like they promised "next gen" would be, like rockstar promised they'd be the first to

bring us <3 (pause any movie explosion/screen grab it and note how much more realistic

it looked when it was moving renders in a strip of film. Now imagine controlling that sh*t <3)

 

Smooth edit Jordy, keep them home-bound baby <3

 

 

Music Entertainment TV, aka Me TV.

 

Ha, we ALL should've known that! holy crap!

Awesome screenshots. Nice to see some that haven't been all blurred out due to compression or whatnot.

 

Thanks for the heads up, Jordan. smile.gif

Those screenshots are awesome. It's a pity they've been absolutely raped by what are arguably the most ridiculous watermarks I've ever seen in my life. mercie_blink.gif

Told yas the HUD would be minimal and barely noticeble.

 

Loved what they said about the helicopter ride around LC and landing on skyscrapers. Gets me hyped. Cant wait to rocket launch the Screamer but!

Thank you Jordan.

I bet you're happy to see the duffel bag return in a screen. I do think we will be able to use them whenever we want.

Oh yeah it's always nice to see the duffel bag in action icon14.gif I imagine it will be used in robberies and not much else though. Still exciting.

Looks great. Way to go MTV, you don't SUCK AS MUCH AS I'D LIKE TO THINK, YOU HIPHOPING MAINSTREAM WHORES.

 

No, I'm not emo, I mean they play hiphop and the thing they call "r'n'b". They've abandoned metal, f*cking KISS, going all soft and sh*t.

Wow. Those screens shot look very crisp and clean. The game is coming along nicely... I wonder if they are form the PS3 version? (Anti-Aliasing)??

NICE!!! happy.gif

 

I love the new screen!

 

I think this indicates that heavy weapons will be in the bag, and hopefully not "suddenly appear from nowhere", although this has been said in previews before...

 

anyway, cool info, thanks
