If R* remastered IV, what should they keep and what should they add/re

Now that I'm thinking about what else to bring over from V, the weapon customization could actually be a really good fit for Niko. Very in-character. The thing is, it would need to be really expanded, with the upgrades significantly impacting how the guns perform and handle, tailored to specific playstyles, instead of "neither here, nor there" approach of V. Otherwise, it's just a waste of time and money.

 

And this is certainly a more significant intusion into the game's systems, but some light stealth mechanics would be nice. Just basic line-of-sight and multiple levels of alertness, so you can try to sneak around a bit more. No need to go all MGSV, but this is supposed to be the "hitman" GTA, after all.

 

Elizabeta has been gone to jail and Tony moved to Vice City andthey could just turn the Pay n Spray to Liberty City Customs, cool concept tho ;)

Thanks! Well, for the bulk of TLaD, Elizabeta would still be available, that's enough. But Tony went to Vice City? That's news to me. I mean, it's been a long time since I played TBoGT, so my memory might be murky. I know he isn't available to phone calls after Departure Time, but I thought he stayed in the city.

They might just remaster the game on ps4 with nothing worth mentioning,pretty much the same game.

They shouldn't do anything to the game except release it with 1080p native resolution (and get rid of that goddamn ugly blur/haze that you see during the day). Everything else should remain the same.

Not remastering it at all would be the best choice imo as the game is perfect the way it was made. Only thing that could use a bit of touch up if the remaster is inevitable is graphics as they could simply remove the blur that was present in IV.

- Remove

. All Minigames

- Add

. Gym

Because smashing the same button endlessly to sightly change the appearance of my character is way more fun than playing pool or bowling.

 

Grow up.

The stupid haze/blur like effect. Apart from that, it still holds up today.

keep everything, no gta V graphics, no character switching, no new sounds, no new engine or physics. same game, but with 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second.

 

only thing i would want them to do would be to improve the textures of the streets, the cars, the character models and improve the weather effects. Maybe just some minor graphical improvements like depth of field, more fog, smoke and some refraction heat waves. add too much and it wouldn't feel like gta IV anymore. i would rather just get a simple remaster with better textures and weather effects and have it still feel like gta IV than get a completely revamped game with character switching and a new physics engine. Last thing i want is for gta IV to feel like gta V.

 

 

im sure if they do a good enough job of improving textures we could get the game looking like this

GTAIV_shot04_640.jpg

This. Everything about IV is better than V except graphics, so that's all that a remaster would need.

- Remove

. All Minigames - ????? The f*ck?????

. Flying rats - Agree or give them a better award

. Stunt jumps - Why????????????????????????????????????

. Dating - Why would they remove this? Or why would you care to have it removed? Affects nothing basically.

. QU3BD - Same as above

. Swingset glitch - ?????????????? The f*ck????????

. Internet cafes - ????????????? The f*ck??????????

. Apartments - Same as above

. Hospital - Same as above

. Remove pointless and boring errand strands from the story campaign to keep it short. - Same as above

 

. Awful Helicopter controls -Helicopter controls are great. No idea what you're on about.

 

- Add

. Gym -So remove ALL minigames but add the gym, which was a tedious, annoying, boring little minigame from San Andreas? I'd rather play QU3BD or go bowling than spam a button to make Niko buff. Sorry, not sorry. Gym was sh*t, glad it hasn't returned in the HD era.

. More underground gunshops with no two shops are copy and paste versions.

. More and better variety of interiors that are much more useful and interactive, making sense. -Don't even know what this means

. More dangerous areas that are unsafe with randomized enemy or police shootouts

. Variety of Asset missions

. Parachute and Jetpack! -AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

. More Crime related side missions

 

Anyways, if they remastered it, I would want them to keep it exactly the same. All they should do is bump it up to 1080p/60fps for the peasants people on consoles and actually give us a good PC port. Maybe even combine all radio stations or some sh*t. But I wouldn't want TLAD weapons in IV or TBOGT weapons in TLAD. Basically, I just want an update in resolution/textures/framerates and keep everything else the same. IV was already near perfect and with the way Rockstar is now, I wouldn't want them mucking about with it too much.

 

Gym is not a minigame for fun or leisure, but a facility to work out and train CJ to improve the physical stats which, when improved upon, will enable you to unlock interesting gameplay elements that actually have an effect for the player, unlike boring minigames in IV that have no effect whatsoever on the character. It makes no sense that on one hand Niko spends hundreds of minutes in playing bowling, pool, etc., hanging out with friends, having a great time in strip clubs, dating girls on the internet, playing QU3BD, etc. and yet still keeps whining about how he wanted to lead a normal life in peace, going back to square one, only to find himself drawn back to one thing - Kill..kill..kill... f*ckin' continue to murder people?

No amount of socialising and minigames could make Niko stop whining at any point despite the story offers him the opportunity to leave violence. But he doesn¡¯t because "I need MOAR MONEY, and and killing is all I can do"

He feels that his soul is permanently tainted yet such a man can easily find himself in having all the joy and pleasures of a normal life...???

On the other hand, gyms add more believability to the character that reflects the life of CJ's neighborhood with graffiti tags, gyms, etc used to identify the gang life.

Sweet - If you don't respect your body, ain't nobody going to respect you. You to skinny CJ, you need to pack on some muscle. There's a gym I go to a couple block's out from the Grove. Go check it out and get yo'self a gangsta physique.

Every thing has been nicely explained in SA and makes so much sense in roleplaying the character of CJ.

Unlike Niko, there's really no depth nor any valid justification for such a character with a soul "permanently tainted" would still find a pleasure in playing minigames and hanging out with friends.

 

If GYM workout is not a minigame for fun or leisure then the f*ck is point of doing it. From what I've been able to tell, you find IV quite boring as is so why would adding a boring activity increase the amount of fun you have with it? Your whole argument makes no sense. Please, try harder.

Honestly, I'd be perfectly fine with just an upscaling of the graphics. Nothing newly added, but updated graphics and the ability to play on the PS4 would be orgasmic.

Furthermore I don't understand why he whines that the minigames don't make any "sense" for Niko to do, but in what way does the gym then? Unlike CJ who lets face it is an inexperienced street punk that has no formal combat/firness training Niko already gained his experience during the military. He doesn't need to improve his skills.

 

And yeah. He even acknowledges the gym isn't meant for fun so I don't really see the point of it then. IMO it's tedious and have never got its appeal at all. I'm glad R* had the sense to leave it out of GTA IV.

Sunrise Driver

Uniting all 3 into 1, especially with GTA V character switching, is a nice idea but gonna require hellova work, recoding and rewriting.

 

I want:

- Traffic level slider for consoles like on PC.

- Ditch GFWLive.

- Add parachutes to GTA 4 and TLAD.

- More rooftop accesses. Ideally, to the roofs of all towers in the game.

- Independence FM on consoles.

- Fix mixed stations in EFLC so they won't start from the beginning each time you load the game or even start the mission (and the most atrocious thing - when you simply change the car)

- Autosave after each stunt jump and pigeon/seagull shot.

- Keep The Lost clubhouse after the end. (requires rewriting and changing the cutscene)

- Subway station in Northern Bohan.

- Ability to walk and stand on subways, cars, trucks etc.

- Buses driving around the city in free roam, preferably with passengers, preferably with more than 3.

- More various races to single-player, including air, water races, cannonball run and free run.

- Ability to catch criminals via police computer in EFLC.

- Move sun to the south like in real NYC (optional).

- Less or no wanted stars for enetering Airport and UN (optional).

 

 

And even MORE bowling with Roman please.

 

 

Below is a perfect example of stupid, childish and retarded post with mutually exclusive points. GTFO and never come back. How do you even like San Andreas that features many things you wanted to remove/change in GTA 4?

 

- Remove
. All Minigames - Yeah f**k em all. let's put yoga and shrink instead.
. Flying rats - Nobody forces you to hunt them
. Stunt jumps - GTFO
. Mission Reset system - ???
. Swingset glitch - GTFO, that's the most awesome glitch in GTA games
. Internet cafes - GTFO The intenret is awesome
. Apartments - And live where? On the streets?
. Hospital - lolwut?
. Remove pointless and boring errand strands from the story campaign to keep it short. - At this point you might aswell want to remove the whole campaign

- Change
. Niko's walking speed - To what?
. Make Niko move around and control much more smoothly and swiftly, just like 3D era classics. - So the work of 5 motion capture artists and programmers should go down the drain because you want outdated PS2 mechanics?
. Sprint by default. Hold - No
. Hand to hand combat - Best in the series
. Super clunky controls - Play on controller or K+M, not on wheel or flight sim controller
. Awful framerates - Not so awful
. sh*tty graphics that make me feel motion sick, so blurry, lacking clarity and not crisp with whatever retarded filter system being used. - You can turn it off on PC
. Performance on PC - SUCKS! - It's 2016, not 2009 get some proper PC
. Brain-dead AI of the street races that are just terrible, the dumb enemies, psychic cops and retarded traffic system on roads. - Facepalm (+psychic cops live in 2013 LS and shootpeople for standing near them)
. Stupid in-game economy - What economy?
. Awful Helicopter controls - Not awful, same as in SA, VC, VCS, V, LCS

- Add
. Stealth and silencer - There is stealth if you want
. Safehouses to purchase - But you wanted homeless protags.
. Stadium challenges - Where to find that stadium?
. Gym - Niko had enough training and he doesn't need more muscles unlike Brucie.
. Jetpack! - [Laughing spanish guy pic is here]
. More Crime related side missions. - Ditch "boring" crime "errands" from the main story but make more repetitive side crime missions. Nice

A jetpack?

Yes, jet pack is actually a simple and easy to operate with 0 risks [ can't crash nor explode ] involved to fly around on your own that ensure a quick, smooth, and hassle free flight, unlike flying helicopter with awful controls and limited freedom to explore the environment. Jetpack allows you to reach anywhere no matter how challenging the landing site.

Any one who doesn't find fun in the useless activities like bowling and other boring minigames but wants to be entertained in the empty sandbox world of IV will understand and agree with my sentiment for having jet pack in the game as expressed above.

"I want new stuff! Tired of Rockstar using the same old crap! They've been downhill with everything since after San Andreas!"

"But let me cling onto everything from GTA SA while kicking and screaming while demanding that everything from it gets rehashed and reused in the next game!"

I would like a bit of snow, improved graphics overall, optimize the game for PC, add new songs in radio, more interiors to explore, new clothes. All this things mentioned are quite achievable. I don't think they would add new missions, encounters provided that voice of Niko is no more working with them.

Well the old classics could stay. I really like some of them. Even I like some of them in GTA V like D-I-V-O-R-C-E, Highway man, Whiskey River and many more. All they need to do is may be add a new radio station with new songs. By new I don't mean songs from 2015-16. New means new to the game. I know we have Independence FM to do so, but I believe that Rockstar has neat taste in music and they introduce us to some really better ones which we had never known of.

He asked a rhetorical question. You don't need to explain everything like we don't know what it is.

 

Like the gym the jetpack is something I've never got the appeal of and personally San Andreas fans overrate to death like it's an absolute necessity in the series.

 

Once again R* had the good sense not to taint GTA IV with this crap and they'd never do it with a remaster thank god.

Graphics aren't horrible, but its incredible seeing GTA V running on the same console as is GTA IV. Rockstar did do an amazing job with it, I have to say.

I'm switching between IV and V on my 360 and V looks like it's running on a different machine... I think for Rockstar managing to release GTA V for both 360 and PS3 and get them to run so good has to be one of the best achievements of the last generation.

The shadows of GTA IV are'nt so good.

And if the graphics is compared with GTA V, so forget that GTA IV can compete with GTA V in that feild.

There should be A Rectangulare HUD.

Some EFLC Interiors should be added (A Guy Called Voggs Told Me This).

A better Phone Texture should be added.

GTA IV contains a Very Less Amount Of Guns. At Least, EFLC Guns Should Be Added In It.

Some EFLC Bikes and Cars should be added in GTA IV etc.

Nah, the circular minimap has been characteristic of GTA since GTA III. I say keep it.

IV graphics are good, but the colors on the console versions are weird, it's like they had different timecyc configurations in comparison to the PC version. Going from PS3 to PC (didn't pay attention to graphics then) then back to PS3 left me suprised, made me think my TV saturation settings weren't properly set up.

You don't really need to explain how the jetpack works, I just can't imagine a Serbian war veteran flying a jetpack. Wanting to add a jetpack in IV is like adding a mission in TLaD where Johnny learns how to juggle.
