When you see someone talking about a Pecorino you feel the need to correct them that Pecorino is a type of cheese and Pegorinos are guido gangsters out of Alderney.

When you believe a real gangster -

Dresses in a suit

Is good to his mother

Has a lot of cash

Will actually kill you

 

Where a hood gangster -

Dresses like a slob

Treats his mum like sh**

Has lot of gold chain but no cash

Won't kill you, is all talk

If you are receiving phone calls from boring friends every time to hang out

USE YOU PHONE'S SLEEP MODE FOR f*ckS SAKE!

 

Seriously, I can't understand the idiots that keep saying "wah wah wah friends keeps calling me to go f*cking bowling" when the game itself tells you about the sleep mode early on the game.

 

Just one more of the IV critics that make no goddamn sense unless you cant read a goddamn pop up.

Putting the phone in sleep mode is one thing, having it automatically back to normal after finishing a mission is another. I think a lot of us do use the sleep mode now and then, it's just the way the game automatically puts it back to normal after completing a mission that makes using sleep mode kinda useless as a game mechanic.

That's what the phone's icon which is placed beside the radar is for. when you turn the sleep on, an icon appears there, when it's off, it doesn't.

Seriously, I never got annoyed by their phone calls

I still don't know why people get so annoyed by the calls. Like, am I playing a bugged out version of GTA IV? Friends almost never call me on IV and all I do nowadays is free-roam and f*ck around. If they call and I don't want to hang out, I simply ignore them and if I really don't want to be bothered, I put my sh*t on sleep mode. But I literally do not get these people who act like they call every 5 minutes. I have to be playing a bugged version.

I was playing GTA IV yesterday and I didn't get a phone call to hang out with someone until I was playing for nearly an hour. There are the odd occasions where a friend will call and a few minutes later another one will, but that doesn't happen enough to warrant this ridiculous "they call every 5 minutes" complaint.

 

I can understand how some people would find the phone calls annoying, but to me it's always been highly exaggerated. Infact I don't even find the phone calls to be that annoying. What I find annoying is when I do decide to hang out having to pick them up from the other side of the f*cking city argggghhh lol.

I've already covered about the issue with phone call here. People are just being delusional by assuming that its a simple case of not turning off the phone. In a game when the phone helps to drive the main story and frequently pops up in random encounters, it makes no sense to make the phone feature so heavily centred around that even after turning it off, it stops all calls, instead of choosing to turn off the calls that are most annoying, namely, those f*ckin' 'go bowling/hang out' asshole friends that call you at all the wrong times, instead of simply making it the way GTA V handled this fine, leaving the hanging out bullsh*t when you want to, but in IV that's not the case. It randomly pops up the hanging out calls, when you turn on the phone when on the missions, because you need calls to play the story, and other side activities.

There are so many moments of ( phone call from Roman, [ insert character ], ) that makes silent mode pointless during the story mode, rinse and repeat doing the silent phone act every time you want to move the story forward...

If one finds this legitimate complaint from many players at that time idiotic, then they are blatantly trying to attack such people for calling out on IVs sh*tty phone call feature, or trying to be ignorant by simply talking about the times they spend in free roam after completing the story, thus it makes the routine of setting the phone into silent mode less frequent than during the story mode, since the only calls that get blocked now are simply the hanging out ones.

 

E:typo

People love to hate and exaggerate sometimes. That applies to numerous IV critics. Honestly I never really got annoyed by the calls, If I don't want to hang out I simply ignore them it's simple. I wish V's friends system was more like IV where you get perks instead of nothing.

I think I've called them more. Even if they do I usually just hang out with them. I only got a few calls (about 2) when I was hunting down 199 pigeons and that takes many hours.

 

And you also know if your a Gta IV fan when you passionately listen to Intergtity 2.0.

Yeah i never really get that much phone call. I play around 1-2 hours and overall i get is 1 phone call everytime i play the game. Sometimes 2 and not more than that, unless you've got a girlfriend (or 2) then it it will be more often.

I too never experienced phone calls every 5 minutes, I guess all our games are broken.

 

I don't know where this exaggeration came from, but I guess the IV critics just wanted to make the game seem worse than it is.

You know you're a GTA IV fan when...

 

- You find yourself using Niko's quotes in your own life

- When you've owned the game more than twice on PS3 and XB360

- When you absolutely hate what GTA has become because you consider IV the gold standard

- When just the thought of GTA IV remastered gives you that fuzzy feeling in your stomach

You know I was never a big fan of the idea of GTA IV being remastered (Don't fix what isn't broken comes to mind), but it actually intrigues me now. All I think it really needs is a graphical clean up and some of the mechanics tighten up and by that I don't mean watered down like GTA V.

 

I really hope R* do it eventually. I would cream in my pants to see a GTA IV remaster on my XB1.

A "remaster" would probably mean using maxed PC settings and a lot of anti-aliasing. Maybe even increase the quality of textures. I doubt they would do any work on the game mechanics. Since i play on PC, i'm not bothered by the lack of a remaster, and even if we got one, i doubt it would be much - but i would still love to play GTA IV on my Xbox One.

What? You don't wish for a properly Optimised Game, like how GTA V turned out in that regard?

 

I'd like such Reworkings.

I'd love a remaster for both my PS4 and XB1. Purely because I badly want to play IV again. R.I.P. PS3 and Xbox 360.

All that comes to mind was that cars feel heavier, and they introduced the first person mode (which i feel doesn't work right). What else was changed in the GTA V remaster?

 

Anyway, I would love a properly optimized game, I'm only saying i doubt Rockstar would put any work into it besides using already established graphical upgrades.
