The Mr Vercetti suit

Recommended Posts

Hodgey.

Thats why i love GTA VC, i have never known this. I knew the game has large influences from 80 movies and TV shows but didnt realise that suit was also inspired by a tv show.

That does appear to be Tubbs' suit. I never did care for the 'Mr. Vercetti' suit, it looked to much like Tommy running around in pajamas to me. Especially with the little slipper shoes he's wearing. Most of the time I just had him wear the basic suit, or one the the track suits. The golf outfit with plaid pants from Jock Sport was also a favorite.

As for the Stinger/Daytona, there is also the same thing about Cheetah being inspired by Crockett's Ferrari Testarossa that he drives starting from Season 3 (after the Daytona got blown up)

Yep - glad that atleast the Cheetah is in the "right" Miami Vice colours in VC, as white.

 

I have a white VCPD Cheetah parked in Tommy's mansion, and I think that the VCPD version is the "real" Testarossa, 'cause after all,

the only way you can get it with a three star wanted level, when being pursued by officers "Cracker" and "Butts" ( HAH) as homage

to Miami Vice's Crockett and Tubbs.

 

And as a little trivia with the VCPD Cheetah, I don't know if it has any connection whatsoever (just a funny

little coincidence), but

when you get the VCPD Cheetah after you having a three star wanted level, in Miami Vice

the Testarossa became Crockett's car from season three onwards . tounge.gif

 

And ain't it a funny (coincidence ?), when in Miami Vice Crockett's Daytona Spyder is being blown with a Stinger missile. tounge2.gif

Great post!

I didn't think that this was also from Miami Vice!

 

BTW, does anybody know what boat is the Squalo modelled after (I mean, the model of the real-life boat)?

It's Scarab.. Not the Stinger pal! Check the rear engine part.

Well my respect for rockstar has somewhat taken a nose dive. You mean to tell me they can't come up with original ideas so they just steal ideas from everyone else ? Why haven't they been sued and sh*t ? I'm being serious how can they just blatantly steal other peoples ideas that's f*cked up .

 

Did these guys use any imagination when making this game ? They have such a great outlet and their not using it right. It's sad

 

I mean we like to sh*t on saints row because their ideas and imagination is childlike but at the end of the day that's still their ideas. Their coming up with that stuff themselves. Sure a lot of the stuff they do is dumb but how can you sh*t on them when their making this game from their imagination and using creativity ? When rockstar clearly aren't. ?

 

 

I'm just saying doesn't it make you a little sad ? When I played this game as a kid I thought rockstar were gods. I honestly thought they created this whole universe from their minds. I know it was heavily influenced by Miami in the 80's and scarface but I didn't know how deep it went. I thought the idea was to take a real life setting, put you're own creative spin on it, while kinda mocking it as you go along. It seems they've taken everything from real life and put it in the game. I thought they came up with a lot of it by themselves confused.gif

 

What's the fun in copying a suit in real life ? Why not create one yourself from you're own mind you know ? This makes me worry about v even more pop culture isn't fun right now. If they copy everything from real life this sh*t could get boring in a hurry

 

It's fun to see it referenced as an easter egg. 95% of the game is still original (dialogue, characters, plot), so I don't know what you are complaining about. These were just stylistic choices made as an homage to Scarface and Miami Vice.

Check the movie Carlito's Way (or somehing like that)

It is about our favourite lawyer, Ken Rosenberg. ;p

 

R* inspired from that movie too.

 

Here is a topic about aprox the same subject:

And Sharks are inspired by the gangsters from Michael Jackson's "Beat It" music video....

Basically...R* games took the most memorable stuff from the 80s and combined them into a great game

There so much references to Miami Vice, also through dialogue, no copy/paste but some allusions, always makes me smile.

 

I watched Miami Vice regulary 30 years ago, and figuring out that Philip Michael Thomas, the guy who voiced Tubbs in the series was also voicing Lance suprised me a lot !

A lot of liitle gems to find in the game ... if you have the pop-culture references.
