Can anyone confirm if the mission "Psycho Killer" is still in this game?

Yes.

This is what I hate most, obviously they look better but they're ruining the atmosphere the OG's had by taking out the fog, haze, heatwaves and sun flare effects and making drawing distance ridiculous big.

Thank you! I was waiting for those exact buildings (Like I didn't know).

I just HATE that the game doesn't have ragdolls. Like seriously, they could've been so much fun to play around with, but all they really changed are models, textures, particles and lighting. Not much more, and 60$ for some pretty slight changes? I would hesitate to even pay 30$ for the game, and now I feel ripped off. And the fact that they reused blips from the 10th anniversary seems so lazy for me, also the HUD icons from the 10th anniversary, I hate them, they don't have the original colorful 80s' Miami vibe. The fire effects aren't great either, and the fact that they use GTA SA sound effects on the menu seems so lazy. Also I hate the new menu, they could've sticked to the old one. Also they really butchered Tommy and Ken Rosenberg. Seems like they barely even cared about Vice City, because the character models like they're made from plastic or wax I don't know. Like GTA 3 got a nice treatment of a decent Claude model. CJ's model looks like he saw some sh*t in 'nam or is first time on crack but it still is OK. Tommy is just... I don't know, they sticked to the cartoony look but it isn't the same vibe. I know it's not a remake, but a remaster but like if you reuse sh*t from GTA SA why not add the swimming animations and code? CTRL+C CTRL+V, simple. Non game changing but improving features would've been nice. Also the mission failed from GTA SA doesn't fit Vice City AT ALL. I have really mixed feelings about this remake, but I don't know how to refund on PC so I'll have to stick to it I guess. Wardrum (or now 'Grove Street Games') didn't do the best job, it couldv'e been worse but it's not good. At least it's not that atrocious like GTA SA 10th anniversary.

 

 

Also they couldv'e made Downtown much better. It is still empty and has this unifinished vibe, I don't like it. I hate downtown, beach is the best.

bruh they removed the lens flare from VC too? Man come on...Christ. Boy I sure am glad the originals got removed for this!

 

 

 

Not.

It's funny how the original Vice City's legacy and atmosphere plays a HUGE and integral part in the synthwave-vaporwave-retrowave "movements", with its intensive orange sunsets, purple skies and vibrant colors. (Vice City Stories too, by the way)

 

This DE has none of that, it's sterile and uninteresting as hell. GSG had no idea what they were doing.

Yeah I just saw the leaked video of Vice City and am pretty underwhelmed that it'll be the same choppy free aim bullsh*t as before.  I preordered so oh well, but completely disingenuous of Rockstar to say that the shooting of GTA5 was embedded into the originals.  I think this is going to bite them tremendously in the ass.  Just don't f*cking lie.  Bad vibes

If you cross that line, you will reach the fake sky photo with clouds and a door.

Yes, I had the game preloaded and played for a while when it unlocked at midnight, mostly driving around picking up Tiki statues and weapons. The song was played on V-rock after a while.

I’m new to the forum so sorry if I’m doing this wrong. I’ve only ever really played Vice City for any serious amount of time. I’ve noticed in the remaster that when on foot in third person, Tommy is slightly to the left of center on the screen. I presume this is for combat reasons. However, when you enter the mall, he goes central which I prefer a lot. Does anyone else feel the same or is that just me. Also is he taking an extreme amount of time to fully recover after sprinting for anyone else?

I find it a bit odd that Ken's uses his chain as the cutoff point when shaving his chest hair.

He always was a kind of oddball and control freak. Probably couldn't even make such a small decision when it came to shaving and hence had to rely on something like a chain as a dividing line.

Thank Jezz Torrent for that!

 

It would've been ridiculous if the remaster removed Love Fist songs, which, unlike the rest of the soundtrack (except Radio Espantoso's Alpha Banditos, Unaesta and Tres Apenas Como Eso), are original songs made for the game.

Gee bill, your mother let you have TWO left wing mirrors?

Forget dual mirrors, how about the fact that these doors next to the windows on the building have no balconies?

Gutted. The one thing I was hoping they'd fix if nothing else.
