What did you do in Vice City today

Recommended Posts

Utopianthumbs

Similar to the threads in the San Andreas and IV sections. Thought it would be fun to see what people are up to in Vice City nearly two decades after it's release

I'll start

 

- Started a new playthrough. 'In the Beginning' remains as iconic an introduction as it was before. RIP Vic

- Finished the mission 'The Party' and got acquainted with Vice City's big players

- Went to the Malibu Club and tried to barge into the upstairs area when the bartender shotgunned my ass lol, Forgot about that

- Drove around the city to reacquaint myself with the city layout. It was nice listening to 'Waiting for a girl like you' as the sun rose

 

Feel free to share your daily adventures in Vice City whether they be exciting or even seemingly mundane

 which you created and no one hardly replies (also you were trying to keep it alive)

 

I usually start with a starter save (iirc 44.81%) and then start doing the missions and breaking records.

 

-I just did The Job randomly and then closed the game feeling bored

So? It's not like this section is buzzing with activity anyway, I don't see what's wrong in creating this thread and trying to spark some discussion, if that doesn't happen so be it doesn't mean you shouldn't try

 

Also I haven't posted in that San Andreas thread for months now, so maybe cool down a bit on the trying to keep it alive part?

man, tbh i like to go thru the storyline but as long as my vc is modded some parts are giving me hard times..But apart from that I just love playing VC but a 100% save game. Collecting his $$$, killing peds in north point mall with grenades, other than that i love doing taxi mission.

I completed the missions Naval Engagement, Trojan Voodoo, and Shakedown. I then tried to buy the Malibu Club, but I didn't have enough money (I haven't been doing many side missions for the sake of cash; I guess I need to work harder on collecting money in order to buy the assets). I also looked at the map of Miami on Google Maps, and it was interesting to see how Miami Beach is connected to the mainland in real life, and that Little Haiti and Little Havana actually exist in Miami. Furthermore, a few days ago, I read the entire Wikipedia article on the game.


The bartender in the Malibu Club also killed me some time ago. It caught me by surprise; I hadn't expected a peaceful-looking woman to shoot once and make me kick the bucket!


I'm not a big gamer, but I've been enjoying the game so far. I played it many years ago, but back then I understood almost nothing of the story because my English was poor as a child, and there was no translation into my native language. I'm getting a bit geeky about it these days; I want to read some wiki articles about the game on websites created by fans, and I'd like to read the lyrics of the songs, and generally do things like that to become fully acquainted with the details. Perhaps I shouldn't be spending that much time on it, but it helps me escape some problems in real life.


I'll try to reach 100% completion without using any cheat codes. When I do, I might move forward to San Andreas. I believe I installed that game in the 2000s, but got frustrated soon because I was somehow expecting it to be a continuation of Vice City with Tommy Vercetti as the protagonist (😆). It'd be nice to play it now, but it might take even more time than Vice City to grasp all the details.

 

By the way, I miss this sort of web forums. I find them more organized than Facebook groups or other social media spaces. If someone plans to continue to comment in this thread, I'd be happy to exchange our Vice City diaries here.

VC Vigilante

I've been playing vigilante sub-mission with a cop car and an Enforcer (sometimes) endlessly. Its the part I have a blast with so for years I've been messing around but I'm doing it right at the beginning of the game to see how fast I can take down the criminals and not get busted or shotgunned by one of them criminals. I'm starting to get very good at it, on both PC and PS2 versions. I'm still learning new strats and finding optimal ways of driving and pinning cars. I hope to eventually stream some of it and get a speedrun category going.

How fun was it? I haven't gotten that high but I lose interest because its too easy in general using the Hunter.

There is a lot about the GTA games to explore tech wise in articles and guides. Vice City is worth it, I hope to understand a lot of the workings over the decades. I sometimes wonder if I spend too much time as well but then I realize how much fun I had so I shrug it off.

 

I'm also just about to start a new playthrough of SA on the PC for the first time (in the next 24 hours). There is so much going on in that one.

 

I agree about online message boards/forums such as this. I can't stand the new way of social media. I'll be keeping updates about things I find out during my runs here and probably in the threads I started about vigilante and unknown glitches.

I'm currently on a new playthrough of Vice City so would like to share my antics in this game so provided this thread is active I'll be more than happy to exchange notes with you  :) 

 

And yeah the bartender took me completely by surprise too! 

 

What I did when I last played

- Completed Back Alley Brawl. Took down Mr Teal , got myself a cell phone and met a certain Mr Lance

 

- Near the mall there were quite a few criminals being chased by cops so I went around stopping the criminals trying to get the good citizen bonus, until I accidentally punched a cop which led to a fist fight where all it took was the cop to punch me once for me to fall to the ground and get busted... 

 

- Had another (successful) 3 star police chase riding around on a faggio

It was fun for about an hour then I got bored, basically just wanted to see how much money I made (19 mil). It is really easy. I did it in Ocean Beach and almost every level at least one car spawned in or near the water, taking care of itself. Then when I got six stars they started hitting Rhinos too. Makes it trivial.

Pancake2020's updates:

 

I've done a whole bunch of missions:

  • Bar Brawl: On the one hand, I believe that Lance Vance sort of deserves being treated as a child. ("But don't worry Tommy, I can handle it.") -- Seriously, Mr. Lance Vance Dance?!?! He was too chicken. On the other hand, the man lost his brother and was patronized "all his life". Tommy could've been more patient.
  • Cop Land: Nice mission. I flew back with Lance in a helicopter to Vercetti Estate. Starfish Island is quite conveniently located. The mansion is one of the best places in town.
  • Check Out At The Check In: a refreshing 4th assassination contract. The previous payphone mission was a bit more challenging.
  • Love Juice: ("This is Tommy. We go way back.") -- LMAO. What a hypocrite Kent Paul is. It was only a short while ago that he had his first (heated) encounter ever with Vercetti. Also, would Mercedes, the daughter of the powerful Colonel Cortez, be happy to have sex with Love Fist's artists just like that? Even if they were really top artists, Mercedes is still an attractive woman who was raised by an important father. 
  • Psycho Killer: really liked the voice artist's performance of the Psycho's line "I'll see Love Fist burn! Love Fist ruined my life!", as well as the appearance of the psycho fan.
  • Alloy Wheels of Steel: finished 1st on my 2nd try, I think. Nice bikes and an intriguing club.
  • Messing with the Man: am I getting it right that Tommy was referring to the Vietnam War in the dialogue?
  • Hog Tied: amusing jumps using a cool motorcycle. The mission's title is a pun, right?
  • Publicity Tour: Love Fist's members are way too talkative, but their accents are hilarious.

I bought the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory. Still haven't figured out how to distribute the "ice cream", if you know what I mean. (I got into the factory's vehicle and all; it's just that no-one approached me even as I started to drive.) Please don't give me tips if there's something I'm missing. I hope nothing is wrong with the game I have.

- Completed the mission Riot. Now have missions for Avery and Cortez available

- Did a few taxi missions

- Went on a bit of a melee rampage on the streets, was fist fighting a lot of peds and ended up in a fight with police again

- Stocked up on Pistol and Mac ammo

- Almost completed the Pizza boy mission but at the last level I decided to press the horn for some reason and I pressed Caps lock thinking that was the horn and cancelled the mission like an idiot

VC Vigilante

As I wrote in the other thread every time I do a vigilante run something I haven't seen before presents itself and yesterday the theme of my two attempts was erroneous entering of my vehicle. One of the criminals actually got in my car while I was in the driver's seat thinking she could drive it away but then quickly exited. Then a cop got in my car passenger side and rode with me temporarily while I was catching bad peds.

 

I'm learning to shoot at stuck vehicles with a handgun to get the criminals out fast so I can move on with the vigilante%. Using the shotgun can blow up my car at the same time so its not always the best option.

On my last play I heard all this dialogue I haven't heard in ages or have never. Three of my favs are:

 

(jacking a car) "Go kiss the pavement!"

(retrieving money from a dead ped, Tommy in an angry tone) "That's IT?!?!?!?"

(jacking a car) "MY need is GREATER than yours!"

Just finished the Cuban and Haitian missions. After finishing the last Cuban mission I wiped out all the remaining Haitians in the factory and got a wanted level, after a fun poilce chase I went to Kaufman Cabs to save but there were a lot of Haitians there who massacred me , it's like they were waiting to ambush me there after what I did to them.lol

While doing vigilante stuff on PS2, I had criminals on a motorcycle where as I was gunning towards them to knock them off, then a fast cop car (I had a wanted level) just whipped past me and did the dirty work! At the hospital in the south zone there were 6-7 cops walking around (malfunction of my disc as loading screens even occurred during driving), then I knew if I left and came back 0 cops would be walking...bingo. With many instances of mayhem, I had some wild situations where ped cars started going crazy when stuff started blowing up all around: I went to that pharmacy area where the heart is inside and these two SUV trucks were moving fast into the wall and I had to keep dodging. I don't know how their orientation got messed up but this is why I love the game, and its still not getting old playing vigilante. I had a runaway criminal get into a cop car with 1/2 doors open and the lights flashing.
