Damn, I really need to explore LC further. I never knew there was a golf course in Algonquin until i played TBoGT!

To be fair it would be pretty easy to miss in IV as it's not used in any missions.

Anyone else love the backstory Rockstar wrote on the back of GTA IV's cover? I especially love the bold part.

 

"What does the American Dream mean today? For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past. For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity. As they slip into debt and are dragged into the criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't."

I've tested here and I can say that driving through LC without HUD is 100x much better.

 

I actually payed attention to the city instead of how much HP was remaining to me while I was trying to escape the pigs.

Whenever I play GTA IV, what I like about the game especially, is make Niko wear a white pastel suit from Perseus, with black trousers and brown loafers, drive a Marbelle whilst listening to 'Jazz Nation Radio' around south Algonquin in Little Italy and just sit there or anywhere in LC for that matter, and if outside a restaurant I like to think I can smell the pizza's, especially the garlic Pizza's being cooked.

 

Another thing I like about LC so much. Never really gets old

My favourite spots:

Northern Alderney, it's so beautiful and isolated. When I stand on the cliff behind the mansion in Westdyke, it makes me think of the menu music. It gives such an amazing feeling...that isolated part, combined with the menu music, just represents IV depressing and dark tone.

 

West Broker, especially by the bridge leading to Algonquin: In the beginning of the game, I was really like: I want to get to that place, with the beautiful skyline, all the skyscrapers. I was so excited, so wanting to enter Algonquin. BOABO is pretty cool too.

 

Hove Beach: You know that it's dangerous here, with all the Russian mobsters around. It's a fitting place for immigrants, a good but dangerous place to start their lives over and live the American Dream. Also really like Firefly Island (that view on the beach and the sea!) and Beachgate.

 

Star Junction: Place looks amazing, a real good representation of Times Square. Looks especially amazing at night, just beautiful.

 

I like LS (SA and V version alike), but my heart will always belong to LC.

Currently downloading the Snow mod. I can't wait! LC should look great in snow.

Is it alright to say, that I find IV now after 6 years, has this classic GTA feel whenever I play the game nowadays. I get this feeling whenever I play III to VCS as well.

 

Its still immersive, many things you can still do, many places have yet to really be discovered, yet though you have most probably been before but yet forget about after a long time not going to that particular part of the map on a drive about or walkabout. The many streets of LC with many different stories each time you play the game. The sunrise and sunset on the different days, just looking around LC and being grateful that what a game it is, and always will be.

 

And especially when I talk about IV in this amount of detail, I feel proud in some way that its like being a libertonian (if thats how to pronounce it) writing this.

 

Odd, very odd :blink:

Its great how a game like IV, is like real life, and I'm not the only one who thinks this on here either.

 

And to add to this. Some of the songs in IV's soundtrack does have some sought of connection with all 3 protagonists through out the story arc. 'One Vision' by Queen - Niko Bellic, 'Dead or Alive' by Bon Jovi - Johnny K, 'Pjanoo' by Eric Prydz - Luis Lopez

My exams finally got over today, so I popped in IV to just relax a bit. Turned off all sounds and music in-game and started "Out of touch" by Hall and Oates (one of my favorite songs from Vice City) and started my cruise in my beloved blue Sentinel. Took a few screens along the way. Again on PC. (Obviously) but I had to tone down the settings to "medium" because for some reason I started experiencing some FPS drops on Max settings. (Stupid port) but anywho here they are, game still looks pretty good:

Who says this game does not have color?:

The immersion was epic to be honest because "Out of touch" was playing as I was cruising. Very relaxing.

Ohhhh I can't wait! I've still been playing V recently and my hype for IV is growing again. I can't wait to revisit this city again.

GTA V Is On PC

Just took two random screenshots, one during the sunny afternoon in Steinway, another at night during a heavy rainstorm in Star Junction. This city never ceases to amaze me.

I've really got to start taking pics with my tablet. It's a shame the in game camera doesn't save pics without any way of uploading them. There's been so many times where I've been left in awe by the scenery, but haven't grabbed a shot. :(

Someone really should make a mod for the in-game camera on the phone. That makes it usable and actually functions as a camera.

 

I kinda wished Bernie was available as a friend.

GTA V Is On PC

Well, what I do is take a screenshot with F2, then go into the video editor using the phone. The thing is, instead of it being a screenshot, it's usually a 30 second clip of the area in which I took the screenshot. So I go into the editor and remove the rest of the clip, upload it to my computer, then I go into My Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\Videos\Rendered. I take that little clip, open it up, then take a screenshot of the specific time when I wanted that screen using the PRTSCN button above the backspace key. After doing that, I go into paint, paste that screenshot, and crop out the parts I don't need. THEN I go to Photobucket, and upload the image there.

 

If anyone knows of an easier process of taking screenshots (not using the in game phone) I would really appreciate it. :colgate:

Yes, I have thought about using Fraps as a way to take screenshots. I might try it out sometime. As for Steam, I don't play Gta 4 on it. I just use an actual PC disk.

Boy, I'd buy a Manana if it existed on real life. A beauty.

Driving a Manana in Bohan around 9AM, cannot be compared to anything, in any game.

Click on add a non steam game and add IV to your list. Launch it through steam and you are good to go. :)

My phone sort of does the trick. I do need a capture card to film my trips in both IV and V though. That would be awesome. Touring LC in a Super GT and then touring LS in a Massacro.

I can't wait!!!!! Gonna be doing TLaD and TBoGT shortly! Finally, back in Liberty City. Other than V, TLaD/TBoGT are the only games I never bothered to get a vehicle collection in. So here we go again! :) Already got my vehicle list made and methods on obtaining them all, etc...
