Fun facts about the GTA series!

The language of the 3D games features quite a little bit of British English even when the lines are spoken by Americans. The most noticeable one is when Toni says "dustcart" in the mission Blow Fish. In American English they say garbage truck. One lesser known is the Musty Pines commercial in Vice City. The woman says "lucky dip" which is once again a British expression. In American English it would be "grab bag".

 

There are probably more but these are the two I can think of right now.

Nice find. Maybe it's because of R* North offices being based in Scotland?

That's one of the reasons. The other is the fact that Dan Houser is English and from what I know he (and Lazlow) wrote the commercials (among many other things)

To add more fun to the British English usage fact: Quite some of the (mainly mission objective) texts in VC, SA and LCS feature "while" written as "whilst", which is used in British English. For example:

 

PROP_2 - You cannot buy property whilst on a mission

GYM1_94 - Whilst running, lock on to a target with (Aim Weapon) then press (Enter/Exit Vehicle)

FERRY_6 - You can't use a ferry whilst on a mission.

 

EDIT:

It's interesting how they mentioned an unreleased game.

 

Also, the fact that the game was mentioned twice in the series.

Max Payne's first ever trailer was already out in 1998. Everyone knew about it.

In GTA 2, there is a spraying garage called "Max Paynt". Its a reference of Max Payne

GTA 2 was released in 1999 and Max Payne in 2001. 31.gif

Yeah, but the word of Max Payne being in development was out as early as 1997. Not to mention, the trailers the game received each year from 1998 to up until the release in 2001.

The reason the Brickade in GTA Online does a noise that sounds like it's releasing pressure when reversing, is that it's actually a reverse alarm, that unlike most trucks, uses a white noise tone. Apparently they are better that beeps, because they are easier to be heard and that it's also easier to estimate the source of the sound.

- Some of the radio commercials in LCS reuse background jingles from SA's radio commercials. For example, the Feel-All-Great Sports Store commercial uses the exact same music used in SA's Sprunk commercial.
  And the Pilgrim's Pantry commercial uses a slightly sped-up version of the music used in SA's Commando Pest Eradication commercial.

 

These two are the only ones I could catch, but there might be more of them.

The theme tune of LCS is not even custom composed for the game itself. It's just a sped up and cut up version of this song, released in 1972...

The only part that I liked about the game is not even original

Ouch... Oh well, blame Dangermouse for mixing March Popakov into A Dark March.

As much as I like A Dark March (and from now on, March Popakov), I think it would've been better if R* made a remix of III's theme song for use as LCS' theme song.

Toni's "Casual Clothes" outfit (or the "Traveller" outfit as how it's internally named) in LCS is just a cheaply retextured version of the "Leone's Suit" outfit:

I replaced the latter outfit's body texture with the one from the former outfit and that was the result.
In fact, even the file sizes of both outfit models are the same, this includes the cutscene versions of the models too.

 

To be honest, now that I've discovered this, I find the BETA design of the "Casual Clothes"/"Traveller" outfit better than it's final one:

Spoiler

Yet another gem of an idea bagged up for the rewrite concept!
