there are loading sequences when cutscenes start. I knew Rockstar are cheap liars

And when getting out a cab or something.

That makes me think other things on Wikipedia are lies as well.

 

Or is that just the 360 has loading screens?

Why does it really matter?

 

I'm sure it's only a few seconds long anyway.

 

Not like VC where it would load from one place to another.

I don't ever remember Rockstar saying that for Grand Theft Auto IV. They said that for Midnight Club: Los Angeles, not GTAIV.

FAN BOY DICKS, START YOUR ENGINES.

 

Seriously. This isn't worth worrying about.

 

The Earth is still on it's axis, you can all afford to play on a console and eat food everyday.

 

There are more important things to be concerned with than a 3 second loading time.

Signatures are dumb anyway.

They said there is no Loading in between interiors and extiriors and there will only be loading during cutscenes, and imagine if you respawned at a hospital without a loading time, it would be like teleporting lol.

cut scene loads dont mind one bit.

 

entering buildings/ changing clothes etc loading, i do mind lots!!!!

-------------------------------

 

as for wikipedia, all entrys are written by other people. nothing is official on there, its just a collection of information. I could go on to the GTA IV wikipedia page right now and enter a bit of text saying GTA IV comes with a free cuddly toy if i wanted.

 

all info on wikipedia is 75% accurate.

lol thats just askin for it dude..

 

 

oh n yeah, died and getting busted, the "loading screen" to me is a well placed pause..

 

you just died... let us mellow down, fade to black and start u off with a clean slate.

 

aint got no problems with that..

 

i'd be kinda annoyed if u had to load if u moved from one part of the city to the other..

 

cut scene loads are also fine, kinda the same principal with dieing, ur entering a mission, u get a few seconds prep time.

 

Its not like it takes 10mins to load a f*ckin cut scene, for f*cks sake.

Now do you understand why he was angry?

lol It HAS to load the cutscenes...

 

And when you die you are transported to the nearest hospital...the game would look horrible (for a few seconds) if there was no load in between dying and showing up at the hospital.

First Of All. Your Not esentially "Playing" while your watching The Cutscene So thats not included.

 

And Second. ARE YOU ON SOME SORT OF CRACK? Because I would like some.

Not really a lie. They said during gameplay. You're not technically playing when you go to see a cutscene, you're just watching it. tounge2.gif

i agree, it's like a good pause when you die or get arrested,

you'll have a few seconds to think "Damn......." and then move on. tounge.gif

What a crock.

 

Who cares if there's loading screens for the missions? Does a few seconds mean anything?

 

F*** some people complain about the most insignificant things. sarcasm.gif

They said the world doesn't load. No interior to outdoor load. I told people this, but everyone assumed there were never loads. The game HAS to load. You can't not load things.

And when getting out a cab or something.

 

Shouldn't that be seamless? At OP does it really matter that much to you?

They only said that there would not be any loading when entering other boroughs and entering/exiting buildings. Of course the game has to load the cutscenes.

 

Just be grateful that you're getting the chance to play in such a large and insanely detailed city without loading between boroughs, not to mention the amount of things for you to do in your spare time. Rockstar could've just called it quits after San Andreas y'know.

Oh really shut up...

why are you so angry?

Because you're annoying. It's ot the first time they've "lied" plenty of things have been changed, removed, added, misinterpreted, rumoured, etc since the game was announced but we don't really care for the most part. The game is gonna rock!

it's pretty much the same as gta SA

 

go wherever you want on a long magical journey

 

and you won't see a single load screen.

 

do something in depth (die in a neighbourhood without a hospital, start a mission (loadin cutscenes is a fair job, they're all entirely scripted, on R* bloke was sayin that they scripted moving liquid in glases in one cutscene) or get busted) and you'll get a load screen (little bit longer than i would have liked, but hey gta IV is a massive game, the load times could be worse. like midnight club on the PSP worse. 3 mins until you can do anything anywhere tounge2.gif

 

so yea. they didnt lie when they said you'll see no load screens when ur playin, cuz ur not playin when you're watchin a vid or watchin urself get busted. you're watching...

 

and plz, anyone who wants to insult R*....

leave

now

forever.

and while ur at it, give ur copy of GTA IV away... u dont deserve to play it.

How can you say that it doesent matter if R* lied to us? We are paying customers and it would be like if a car dealer lied about the car you were about to buy.
