[Spoiler] the mission "Drive-By" and I noticed something

Recommended Posts

Smoke is not in the opening cutscene for the mission, yet he is there after it. Also, he does not talk at all throughout the mission, and actually shoots at the Ballas, which seems odd. So I was thinking, maybe he wasn't originally supposed to be in the mission at all.

Wow , i only notice this now :O

It's pretty weird that in ''Drive thru'' Smoke doesn't shoot , but he does shoot in ''Drive by''

There's a good deal of goofs in GTA cutscenes. Remember how in that Museum Piece mission in GTA 4, Ray was able to slam a swinging door on Niko, and then the door stays open at the end?

Or especially evident when Carl gets into the car with Cesar at the Green Sabre. He enters on the right but is shown in the drivers seat.

IMDB is good for this kind of stuff. Some highlights from this page on goofs within the game:

 

*On all highways, you will see the double yellow line, which means it is one lane north and south. The highways should have a broken white line, assuring that it is a four lane highway.

*In the mission, "Drive-Thru," Big Smoke is sitting directly behind CJ, and Sweet is opposite him in the cut scene when they are ordering the food. Later, when they reach Grove Street, Sweet and Smoke have switched seats.

*At the end of the first cut-scene for the mission "Coming Home", C.J. goes to the left of Mike Toreno to leave the mansion, but that doorway leads into the sound booth, not to an exit.

*In the 'End of the Line' mission, there is a cut scene where CJ and Big Smoke meet in Big Smoke's crack fortress. When CJ and Smoke are ready to fight, Smoke takes a SPAS combat shotgun. When the cut scene ends and you have to kill Smoke, he has an AK-47 instead.

They all hang out together at the beginning of the game, it is not weird he appears, even with that Claude attitude (usually, Big Smoke talks a lot, lol)

Good spot. I've been playing the early missions through again and I didn't actually pick up on this.

 

I don't think Smoke being there was an afterthought. Even in the early screenshots of this mission you can see Smoke pulling his weight:

Yeah, and I've always noticed that Big Smoke always seemed abruptly cut off at the end. You know, where he says "Here, take this. Go get yourself some beers." He says "beers" on a high note, so it seems like there should have been another word or two after.

 

Watch

and skip to 4:08.

^ ive always thought that. What would he say that had to be cut? Plot give away, maybe drive him to his house again (and plot give away). Or maybe it was something non important or vaugly funny

I've always noticed that, like actual cutscenes had much better quality as opposed to simple uncontrollable in game animations like that.

I've never noticed that before. Weird.

^ I never noticed that either, but after you pointed it out I can tell now that the way he says "beer" is just off.

i've always found it to be so odd how Smoke does get cut off after the word "beers". I didn't think much of it until now

I just played this mission. Smoke does talk during it: after killing the first group of Ballas he says to Carl, "We iced them CJ. Let's hunt down some more."

 

I do agree it seems there was more to come from Smoke at the end of the mission though.
