IV Song Removal Due to Licenses expiring.

BOTH, there's a mod on PC so you can combine radio sets and have the full radio across all 3 titles (IV in EFLC, EFLC in IV).

Hmmm nice bike

That would have been so ideal if Rockstar had re-released or remastered IV/EFLC for the current-gen consoles. Just mix the soundtracks and have all the music and radio stations (including Vice City FM) on every game. That would be one amazing soundtrack.

I don't know. Am I the only one who doesn't want a remaster for games like VC SA IV? I feel like part of the nostalgia and FEELING we have during the game lies within the same graphics. Well graphics and outdated mechanics have never been an issue for me. I can still even enjoy GTA III mechanics and graphics.

I get what you're saying, and personally, I don't think full remasters of the III era games is necessary or something that should happen. IV still looks great, which is why I've also said before that even a re-release with some minor tweaks (like mixing the soundtracks, open interiors on multiplayer across the board instead of just on EFLC) would be great. A remaster wouldn't even have to change that much. Just improve some of the character model and gun textures (so that guns aren't just solid blocks when they fire).

 

A leaked screenshot that an artist from Rockstar accidentally posted on his portfolio did show a part of Middle Park that was clearly upgraded, so the thought of updating LC (either for adding it to GTA Online or for a remaster of IV) has definitely crossed Rockstar's minds. However, that was also from 2 or 3 years ago, so whatever they were planning with that has probably been canceled.

Both? I'm aware of the combining assists method so you launch the games as DLC and get the shared radio, but how do you enabled the EFLC exclusive stations as well?

Maybe you're supposed to transfer their Audio files and GXT files?

Slightly off-topic but I was wondering what other minor differences there are between physical and digital versions of the game?

 

Reason I ask is because I have the disc version for PS3, so have the luxury of all the original songs. I recently played the game on a friends Xbox One and he of course doesn't have the removed songs, but I also noticed some other differences such as a text from Roman early in the game asking Niko to pass on his new mobile number to the ladies, something which I never got in the PS3 version.

 

I'm aware that some versions of the game have additional phone calls such as one from Kate after the Deal ending which isn't present on my version, if this is the case I would actually be interested in buying the digital version despite the song removals. Can anybody elaborate on this?

Still disappointed that they didn't include Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides in the new LCHC. Maybe Suicide Silence too.

 

Anyway, has anyone figured out how to combine new+old Vladivostok?

I would probably take a look at any remaster but I agree that I don't really want one; the nostalgia comes from, as you say, the actual feeling at the time. Part of that feeling was just being younger, maybe more naive etc. and also the fact that GTA3 was genuinely amazing and revolutionary at the time (first 3D GTA game), or say Vice City where new features like helicopters and pilotable aircraft were exactly that, novel. For me, San Andreas felt like the first game where the world was big, where I actually did need the big fold-out map (a nice GTA touch) to get around.

Apart from being unable to go back in time (and probably a good thing too), maybe it's also hard to have that same feeling because you can't unlearn or 'unexperience' something like good graphics, sounds and missions. Like you, I can also enjoy the earlier games because sometimes "less is more" as the saying goes.

Interesting article here actually about nostalgia and video games, interested me as I work in psychology. Although it says that nostalgic video games are usually associated with social/group play, but ironically for me I think that the new GTAO is less nostalgic for me than single player events - in fact, GTAO seems to me slightly more commercial and less about immersion but perhaps it's just me (I joined in 2004 so my perception may be a bit different from present-day gamers' experience).
