Eventhough i already got TLaD. i'm gonna buy Episodes from liberty City. Only because i rather have them both on disc, so i could line it up next to my other copies of this franchise. That and i could free up some space on my hard drive.

What's convenient about the disc is you don't have to wait 2 hours to download it, it took at least 3 1/2 for me when I did it for TLAD. The trade-off, of course, is having to wait and obviously paying an additional $20 just for some added convenience. Still haven't made my decision yet.

29th October, lovely jubbly. A day after my birthday. I know what I'll be getting. cool.gif I don't think Leila Sharpe will be showing up. I'm 99% sure Leila was in Angels in America in TLAD, and she didn't look the club goer type.

Regret nothing! It's possible that the stand-alone disc, since it plays without the original game, does not include a way to install the episodes' radio content into the original game. Worse, it may have been cost prohibitive for Rockstar to re-license the original game's music to be included with the Episodes disc, which would mean you only have the music that was introduced with TLAD and TBOGT when you play the Episodes disc.

Good point, didn't think about that. I guess I will DL it then!

Yeah, you just have to wait 8-10 hours for your local brick-and-mortar store to open.

 

I was playing "The Lost and Damned" within an hour of the download being made available. That won't happen with the disc version. Some people will actually get it early, most people will get it at various times but the download will be available to everyone at the same time from their couch.

I can only speak from personal experience. I have a slow, wireless connection. As opposed to staying up until 12am I can just sleep at a better time, go to the store, and pick it up (should I choose to). Don't go assuming that your experience is the same as everyone else's... I certainly don't.

I'm still trying to figure out how you can't have the download going while you sleep.

 

No matter how you cut it the download is going to be faster. It would be one thing if this game was likely to have a midnight launch but it's not because there's a more efficient way for the people who want it ASAP to get it.

 

You could have said that time wasn't an issue but you said that it was faster buying the disc and that's simply wrong.

You know how Packie threatens Niko if he dares to touch Kate? Well I think it's going to be pretty much the same thing in TBOGT. Except for Niko, it's Luis. Except for Kate, it's Gracie. Except for Packie it's father Ancelotti (forgot what his first name is). The major difference is that Kate doesn't put out, but Gracie would definately put out.

 

I find it pretty obvious that this was going in October as that's R*'s signature month to release GTA titles.

Hopefully Luis will have more than 1 chick and he can actually go out with Gracie and the others.

 

R* didn't hook up Johnny with anything. Not even the ability to go out with Ashley. Even though Jeronimo Barerra "Rockstar VP of creative content" officially said on GameTrailers TV that Johnny would have the ability to date chicks online and such. And this was 1 week before the game was released. Never again would i believe what that liar has to say regarding GTA.

You don't have an avatar yet, but I'm guessing you're one of the 80% of GTAF'ers that would put Lola for their avatar. I believe R* uses chicks that appear in the artwork but not in the game for viewing pleasure (I'd prefer the stripper models in the game over artwork, but then again the strippers in the game are nothing compared women in the real world).

 

Just because somebody else will say it if I don't, "Get a girlfriend!".

 

I have to admit though that Gracie's artwork still looks like it has a lot more atmosphere than other artwork chicks.

 

Anyways, if Luis dates Gracie, she'll break up with him a bit before or after "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" I'm guessing. My reason is because in Niko's story she becomes a random character after "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend", and I don't see how Luis would be able to date her at the time she stays home until the random character mission is done. You also have to take into account that TBOGT will most likely end before or at the same time of Niko's story and that Gracie's random character mission can be done after Niko's story has ended.

Wow. I'm taking about the background, considering how different and really glamor looking it is. And, no, I'm not one of the fa**ots who would put Lola or any other whore-looking woman as their avatar.

I don't quite understand how someone who has a picture of a female character as their avatar for sexual reasons can be considered a fa**ot (homosexual). That's sort of a contradiction, isn't it? dontgetit.gif

Nice! I thought Episodes From Liberty City was going to be released a little after TBOGT was made available. Since it's the same release date, I'm pretty sure there is going to be pirating of the DLC about a week before 10-29-09 (29-10-09 for yous in Britain). I bet we can expect screenshots and/or artwork about every week or every other week now for TBOGT. I'm still hoping R* puts the "IV" into the TBOGT dlc.

 

@Duxfever: Oh, I thought you are talking about getting off on the artwork. The background is amazing I think, even Gracie herself, but not in that "getting off on it" way.

Haha. Another meaning for fa**ot would be, like, "the cast off end of a smoked cigarette". In the US, at least.

Placeholder box art from Rockstar Warehouse. I don't expect a black background on the final.

I'm pretty sure they wont. And i don't think it's because TBoGT is bigger or more stand-alone-ish than TLAD, but i think that it's simple because it looks better on the logo. Imagine that glowing stroke being on the IV. It just wouldn't be right. Three fonts in a logo.. Nah thanks.

Now R* is false advertising. "TWO COMPLETE GAMES". They are expansions, not games.

Given the randomness of my connection there's usually a solid chance that it will stop at some point during the download... this happened for TLAD...

Roffle. It's cool. Yeah, they made her look really detailed. I guess they're still going for the "updated artwork look" thing even for DLC.

 

It would be pretty cool if the background sparkles when the game is loading.

Strange. I thought that using "fag" as a slang word for cigarette was merely an British term. I didn't know it was that popular across the pond. Either way, I doubt he was referring to a "the cast off end of a smoked cigarette" when he called him a fa**ot. lol.gif
