GTA Chinatown Wars Easter Eggs


Recommended Posts

I had just been on a mass-murdering-rampage around the city with a packet of SMG, Minigun, and Carbine bullets, when I suddenly got busted.

 

Crap. I've lost all my weapons.

 

So I restock from Ammunation (about fifty grand worth) and then hail a taxi, and select the location of a special coke deal that I recieved an email about in the middle of my rampage. Yep, everything's normal so far. I decide to skip the trip, so I press start. Oh, nope, I suddenly remember it's select. Start didn't have any effect, BTW. When I press select, I get the police computer menu, in a taxi. WTF? I exit the menu and press the top button (forget what it is on DS, it's a triangle on the PS controllers tounge.gif) and Huang bails out of the taxi. But the taxi just keeps driving! About 2 or 3 camera lengths away, it disappears along with the van travelling beside it (I'd say that's the draw distance taking effect). I press the arrow buttons, and lo and behold, Huang still exists! I can see where he's going by using the minimap. I run to a safehouse (it's probably worth noting that I never "hit" anything along the way; my path was completely clear). I get to the green symbol on my map, and take a guess as to where the chevrons are. I seemed to have gotten my guess right, because the game suddenly...

 

froze.

 

Couldn't do much about it, so I just turned the damn thing off. I lost all the stats I had gained in my little rampage, but that doesn't really matter, I suppose. I can always just do another one devil.gif

 

Has anyone encountered a glitch similar to this?

 

(PS: You might think "well why did he tell me that, it doesn't matter" with some parts of my description, but I detailed everything I could to see if anyone had the same problem with their game, and maybe we could narrow it down to a single cause).

 

Interesting, to say the least lol.gif

That sounds off the wall! It could be a one off, but I'll put it on the list if we find a single cause to it.

Just a question, is the "Here Be Dragons" egg a reference to something, does it mean anything or is it just completely random?

Just completley random I suppose. HOWEVER, I remember seeing a fake map that stereotypes what Americans think the world looks like, and there was an island marked: Here be dragons. So it could be a reference to that, but I don't know how popular that map is, I'll look it up.

 

EDIT: Here it is

Haha, kinda weird, but still funny biggrin.gif

EDIT: Here it is

 

"Here be dragons" is a phrase used to denote dangerous or unexplored territories, in imitation of the infrequent medieval practice of putting sea serpents and other mythological creatures in blank areas of maps.

 

It's actually quite a common phrase. Especially in the online role-playing communities like World of Warcraft of Oblivion. It's often used in a comical fashion (like it is in Chinatown Wars) though it did actually use to appear on maps; one time being used to describe the area we would all come to know as Asia!

 

Wikipedia contains a list of cultural references. Chinatown Wars easter egg may be a reference to one individual one of these, or the phrase in general. It also states that the sign appears at every corner of the map.

Ahh, that makes sense, maybe that means there's a small island farther out or something, some other sort of easter egg?

I think it's a reference to China being referred to as "Here Be Dragons!" on the map, as Huang is Chinese and the game focuses around Chinese gangsters.

That's probably it, if I get a chance I'll check. I just got it today so I've been doing mostly missions and selling drugs, didn't really explore.

Did anyone notice that the icon that represents Zhou on the Board to repeat missions, is actually a tattoo you can get in SA in one of the parlours?

 

Also, I found a little glitch *Chan's Last Mission Spoilers*

After I killed Chan, an ambulance came and revived him, I found that quite ironic lol, but my sword took care of the matter, and the medic

I don't know if it's been mentioned or not yet, but one of the tattoos you can do is the Triads logo from GTA III:

I think this was the one you did during the mission "Tricks of the Triad."

It's rather a reference to ancient nautic maps, from the time when people thought the Earth was flat and that you could fall off it.

On those maps, they used to draw all kinds of monsters, like giant squids and sea dragons, for decoration.

Those of you who are members of the social club, may have come across the 'coming soon: Mr wong's laundromat!'

I was exploring the map, killing people with a chainsaw when i found this shop.

It said laundromat in red capital letters, and there was some text above it ( which i can't make out) which is written in blue.

I looked back on the social club, at 'mr wong's laundromat!' and it uses the exact same colours -red and blue - that appear on this shop, surely not coincedence?

Also the writing above 'laundromat' on the shop looks like similar wordlength to wongs, and i think i can make out the first letter as a 'w'.

 

here's it's location

http://snapmap.wikigta.org/index.php?map=C...tle=&set=459,57

 

Has anyone come across a shop like this before? if not surely this shop must be connected to the coming soon mr wong's laundromat. This could be the place where you unlock some hidden stuff.

The uncle's shop is for Men clothing and the name of it is ''Sum Yung Gai'' what does means Some young gay.

 

Have anyone got what this does spoof? Or is it new, unusual Rockstar humor? moto_whistle.gif

 

And Cherenkov Premium Vodka spoofs Kalasnhikov (Premium) Vodka

'Gai' sounds more like 'guy' which I think was a joke used on Wayne's World. Nonetheless, I'll edit first post.

Yeah, it was although Wayne's World may not have been the first movie with the joke.

Wayne asks for the 'cream of Sum Yun Gai' when ordering a Chinese takeaway.

Quote. Wayne when ordering chinese take-out says ''I'll have the "cream of sum yung gai"''.

 

References from Wayne's world are in The Lost and Damned DLC too, so Rockstar must be fans of this comedy biggrin.gif

 

Enjoii, you're right, it must be from Wayne's world.

 

Jordy, you forgot to mention what is that ''Sum yung gai''. It's uncles shop name.

Hey I noticed a neat little feature. When you open up those red or green dumpsters and when you lift up a garbage bag, some cockroaches crawl around. Use your stylus and poke them and they'll get squashed.

AND the game keeps track of how many you have squashed in the stats system.

Yeah, exactly. I also got this other glitch that I recorded on video. It's where I tried to steal the Burrito vehicle with drugs but the driver wouldn't get out so the vehicle was still moving and I couldn't get out either. I'll upload it later.

I had a different kind of glitchy problem. U may think your one was bad but I think mine was even worse.

 

I was doing a replay of the first mission Yu Jian. And when it finishes it ends right outside your hideout. And cuz this was my first time doing a replay I didn't know it teleports you out after finishing a replay mission. So I got out of the car and went in my safehouse to see that my stashbox was gone and I suddenly realized what I had done. I'd gone into the safehouse before the mission ended so it sent me to what my safehouse was before i got the stashbox. I went outside and the mission ended. I lost $200,000 and all my weapons which I had full ammo for (even minigun) and put together thats worth another $100,000. I went into my safehouse and my stashbox came back (with the 300 coke I had stockpiled until a dealer wanted it). I managed to buy all my weapons back $100,000 after i sold all the coke. But i'm kinda cautious doing replays now that I have managed to get $921,000 at the moment and full ammo again. If that happens again i'm gonna go nuts, be careful when doing replays. sad.gif

I'm pretty sure that there's a Here Be Dragons Message in every corner of the map not just bottom left. Maybe you should look into it.

Sorry about the 2 messages in a row but I found another glitch, I was jacking a car and just when I was halfway through the door I switched my weapon to AK-47 and it let me use it in the car. I've been trying it ever since with no luck. Maybe a one off glitch.

 

P.S. The van passenger happened to me in first hour of playing, lol. Also happened to me in Gta: Advance.

Make Any car flip and explode with one bullet

Added this to easter eggs and glitches section as requested

 

1.Before you get in a car make sure you have a gun (it can be any gun with bullets-even pistol).

2.Next get in the car and reach a reasonable speed.

3.Then, when there is space on the road in front of you -bail out, then immediatly after shoot your car (you should automatically aim at it when you roll out), your car should now flip over and explode into flames. This works on any vehicle except a tank. It even works when driving a tanker or when you bail out in reverse. (Obviously this doesnt work on taxis if you have unlocked bulletproof taxis)

Please reply if you like it or have any questions
