The Liberty City Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Started playing The Ballad of Gay Tony for the first time. God.. how beautiful Liberty City is! I dont know if they remastered part of the graphics or just the screen configs are different but..... everything os shiny and colorful! I love Niko's greyish tone on the city, more depressing, just like he sees the world. But BOGT made it look incredibly beautiful. Good dlc so far, i would prefer more seriousness like in IV or The Lost and Damned plotlines, but gameplay and graphic wise, BOGT is excellent.

 

Constantly returning to Niko and Johnny tho, cant stand that much OYE OYE and BRO in every prhase. But Luis is a good character.

Hmmm...I actually thought that, too. I had IV since 2008 and later adjusted some things to make it look a bit brighter. But when I got Episodes from Liberty City this past March and played TLaD and TBoGT, I thought the graphics or something like that looked a lot better, tbh, as well.

 

Got those 50 Stunt Jumps done this weekend and am 97.50% Completion. All I need to do now is those horrendous 200 Pigeons. I guess the ONLY good thing about Pigeons is I can relax and enjoy the city while flying/driving to all 200 of them. However, it's still gonna take several hours to do them all. Currently I have 49 hours and 56 minutes of playing time. Just shy of 50 hours. I don't see why people don't go for 100%, it's not hard and it doesn't even take that long. IV might be the longest for me as well as SA, but III, VC, LCS, VCS, TLaD, TBoGT, and V go by so quickly.

AFAIK TBoGT removed the green-grey effect from IV and the piss filter from TLAD. That's why the colors are a lot more vibrant. No color filters were used in TBoGT, as it used different timecyc.

Good to know that. This shows us how the protagonists see the world around then differently. Niko is all grey and depressed. Jhonathan has a sick and dirty view on everything. This during shootouts is awesome. Seems like the filter become stronger. Luis look at the bright side, everything is nice and shiny. The nights are even better. This game has awesome graphics, even to this days. Signals and marks on the road, holes in walls, vandalized phones.. everywhere i look there is some depth. Even in the small things. I hope V for the next generation consoles is what IV is now. There is absolutely no way to dislike this game if you apreciate details. A truly masterpiece.

While IV's graphics was quite good, there's no doubt that in my opinion, it lacked saturation. Bringing the slider to max would only give you blindness.

 

For me, TBoGT's timecyc and visual settings managed to mix the dark-gritty LC with colorful LC.

Today I stole a helicopter and landed on top of the Majestic Hotel to watch the sun rise. I always did like to see the sun rise in LC after a night of tearing up the city and running from the cops. Although, the most awesome sunrise is on the beaches of Broker.

And people say this game can't have beautiful sun rises.

I'll be doing the 200 Pigeons Saturday (100) and Sunday (100), and it'll be the last I need to do for 100%. The only good thing I see about doing these is I can finally enjoy all the places in the map that these things are located.

 

Once 100% is reached, then all the fun begins for me. I can finally explore and enjoy the game without thinking about going for 100%. This is true for every GTA game. Work first, play later.

 

However, once I am done with IV, it's going back in the box for a bit because I didn't play V since April, and I want to check it out again and get used to the controls and use the Save Editor to make all my Safehouse Garage vehicles AP.

 

This Winter or Spring, I want to do another playthrough of V to 100%, then, but without using the save editor for anything.

I'm biting the bullet and getting all the flying rats as I'm doing a 100% save. I'm just doing them 10 at a time though.

That is another thing I have gripes with about IV. Are you goung to hunt them down the legitimate way or using the SNT method, with it's teleportation menu. I find it a sh*tload easier via SNT.

 

Cheers.

I'm trying to find and drive each and every vehicle in IV, TBOGT, and LAD. I want to drive each for at least two game days before ditching it. So far I've driven 43. I'm sure I've really driven more during gameplay but didn't pay much attention. I'm really having fun doing this.

 

Twice when I was on the hunt for a car, I over heard a conversation. It seemed to be a police informant speaking with a cop on his cell phone. I am so amazed by the detail in this game. It only adds life to an already lively city.

Just got done an awesome shootout in Star Junction right outside Burger Shot. I set up a few cars for cover and then called up Dwayne for some much needed back up. Used nothing but the Carbine Rifle and it resulted in a damn good shootout. GTA IV's gun sounds really get you in the moment with their loud and intense sounds. About 5 or so minutes in both of Dwayne's homies died on me so I figured that was time for me to split. At 6 stars now I was booking it through ally ways until I saw a Red Ruiner which I quickly hijacked. Once I got in the car Elton John's "Street Kids" was playing which added to the moment even more and really got me pumped up. I drove up to North Holland to get inside of Niko's safehouses but was quickly gunned down once I exited the car. I really love this game.

Top three songs for Johnny K, Jane, wheels of steel, acdc touch to much. Great songs for cruising on his hexer.

Lets have a race! :p

 

I'll smoke you by tomorrow, LOL. I guess my company has off for Labor Day, thus, I got Monday off and if I need this day to finish, I got it. But yeah, 50 a day is like the minimum I will do, up to 100 as the maximum. We'll see how it goes. When it comes to TLaD and TBoGT, I did all 50 per game in one day. So I know 50 is no problem, but 100 in a day might be a bit overkill. 75 a day sounds nice. But you gotta remember, I did EVERYTHING, except these, so these pigeons are all I got left to do so I can devote my time fully to them. I gotta save every 10-15 Pigeons, though. Don't want to go into the Airport and f*ck something up being wanted and have to re-do them, etc. I also want to take Dwayne out 2 more times to get his like and respect to 100%. Every other guy in the pause menu says 100%, lol...I am really big with stats too. I always go for 100%, best stats possible, and a unique/EC vehicle collection, or proof vehicle collection (3D Era + IV)

Damn, I like how you actually collect proof and unique vehicles from 3d era and HD era. Really great.

I know this is not the thread for this, but I think SoL will let it slide :p

 

Legend: BP = Bulletproof; DP = Damageproof; EP = Explosionproof; FP = Fireproof; AP = All Proof (BP/DP/EP/FP); PP = Pop Proof (Tires never pop); MP = Melle Proof; H = Heavy; WP = Water Proof; TP = Tip Proof (Vehicle never catches on fire once flipped upside down - 3D Era); UH = Unique Handling; EC = Exclusive Color; PC = Permanent Color; Unique = Only appears once in the game

 

This is what I got in all 5 3D Games + GTA IV:

GTA VCS: H/FP/PP/EC Walton, BP/FP/EC Pony, UH Freeway, UH Wintergreen, H/PP/TP/EC Sentinel XS, H/EP/FP/PP/EC Infernus, BP/FP/PP/EC Stretch, FP/EP PCJ-600, AP/EC Sentinel XS, FP/EP/TP Admiral, FP/PP/TP/EC Stinger, H/WP Sanchez

Well my 100% quest got more interesting. After 6 years I finally beat the high score in QUB3D. Thank f*ck.

 

This is actually the first time I've knuckled down to do a 100% save. It gives me an all new appreciation for this already amazing game.:)

WildBrick142 told me Cubed is hard if you never did it before, but in all honesty, I beat that high score I think second try if I am not mistaken. In my stats it says something like 20 minutes playing Cubed. Which tells me I played 2 games each around 10 minutes.

 

But glad to hear you beat that. I was intending to save it for around the end of the game, but I did it before a lot of other things once I figured out how to play it and what I had to do to get the points.

I take back what I said....These pigeons absolutely suck ass... :p

 

I am done with 75 today and they were painful. I used a Helitours Maverick to fly to get them. It's quick, but landing sucks. A couple bumps, the f*cking piece of sh*t Helicopter made of paper starts to beep repeatedly when you get back into it. Really annoying trying to land in a city with very little room to land on a flat surface. Can't wait until this is done. Tomorrow I reckon I will do another 75 Pigeons and then all I have is 50 left, which I will do on Monday and finish this nonsense once and for all.

 

I don't get Rockstar's appeal of Collectables and Stunt Jumps. Big waste of time, tbh. Ramps and sh*t are cool, but they shouldn't be counted toward 100%, imo...

Eh...It's not unlimited ammo. All that happens once 100% is reached is the ammo cap is removed, thus you can carry more ammo, up to 9999 bullets. However, if you save the game with more ammo than normal, when you reload, it always reverts back to the normal capacity that you can carry. Why? Due to some bug from a trophy that apparently Rockstar has never patched to date...

 

Unlimited/Infinite Ammo is only in VC, SA, LCS, and VCS. No other games have this.

^ Yeah, due to a bug or something like that, when you reload the game, the ammo capacity is back to normal. Very stupid.

 

It's a bad reward, but V has the worst rewards.

Yeah, I meant removes the ammo cap. At the post above me, at least the ammo cap is also removed on thrown, and special weapons as well. Unlike V. Edited by maxpaynefan
