  1. Yeah Hypecouncil ads get blocked easy. There is a way around it for webmasters . Oh and lol @ Chris: You know that is so ironic considering you are one of them. Like I remember when YoungMaylay.com's email got hacked where the password was just "CJ".
  2. I live in Africa. How can I have a good birthday?
  3. lol of course I know that rappo. There are many meanings for that word. I was just trying to make a joke around it.
  4. Wtf? Didn't even know this was here. But hey what the heck thanks to everyone who replied! People hardly know "AdriaAn" so that is probably why we have so small amount of replies.
  5. Most of you probably know lil' old Jack Thompson by now. Taking on the gaming industry, most importantly the GTA series, for years now. It seems that he just can't get enough of Take Two's Grand Theft Auto that he is starting to move over to the newest title in the series - Liberty City Stories. Thompson has petitioned Troy King, Attorney General of Alabama, to have GTA: Liberty City Stories declared "a nuisance". One can not understand such claims from him as already JT himself is a nuisance to both him and every living human being on this planet. Well, according to the dictionary: Yep, that seems like him. Apparently JT is complaining that Take-Two is marketing what he describes as a "cop-killing game" on daytime T.V. during programs aimed at children. Firstly that doesn't mean anything at all. As far as I know the commercials for Liberty City Stories that is displayed on the tv doesn't contain violence or anything else that will offend those little children. Besides it is not as if they are going to get up, walk to a local retailer and say: "Whadup G, give me a copy of Liberty City Stories". What he will do next is a mystery and Dave Thomas from online mag The Escapist describes it very well: Source: Livejournal
  6. Exactly! Which reminds me of the PS3's 2k x 1k resolution :drible:. It'll be interesting if this time round they will have to downgrade it for the PC. Or it can disspointing for some as it won't work on their PC.
  7. Earlier this week a few news articles were seen on numerous gaming websites about the next GTA for next-gen consoles being an 8 month exclusive for the PS3. Most of them being from fairly unknown websites, which already raised a few red flags. However as always a rumor like this should have a starting point and throughout the days I sniffed around the web to find it. By the looks of it, it must have started between PS3 Updates and Gamer Andy. An editor called Clay was contacted by an unknown source about the next GTA for next-gen consoles (otherwise known as GTA4) being an 8 month exclusive for Sony's Playstation 3. He appeared to have said that both Sony and Take Two Interactive will announce this closely to Xbox 360's release. That was October and two days ago he was contacted by one of the companies mentioned in the previous article (possibly Take 2) and they confirmed to him that it is in fact true. This comes as no surprise though as throughout the years Take Two and Sony had a good relationship when it came to Grand Theft Auto. GTA: San Andreas for instance was a 7 month exclusive for the Playstation 2. So if you plan to buy yourself an Xbox 360 later this month, bear in mind that there is a big possibility you will have to wait a very long time after GTA's PS3 launch to play it on your 360. For now we'll just have to keep an eye on Take Two's press release page. Links: PS3 Updates and Gamer Andy
  8. This morning I received an email from Tash who created a nice hidden package guide for Liberty City Stories. Not only does he explain how to get each package, but he has also posted screenshots with it to show its location on both the map and in the game. This guide is currently a work in progress, but when it's done it should look great. Thumbs up Tash! Link: Teliko21's LCS Hidden Package Guide
  9. It seems that the force was too strong last week for Take 2's PSP breakthrough, GTA: Liberty City Stories. It's been almost nothing out of the ordinary the past few years for a GTA title to shoot right up to the top of the charts in opening week. This year however Lucasarts' Star Wars: Battlefront II managed to overcome GTA: Liberty City Stories by being the number one selling game in the UK. It is not all bad though for GTA: LCS. The game is currently the top selling PSP game in the country and it had sold more copies than Grand Theft Auto: 3 on the PS2 did on its opening week. You have to remember that the PSP only recently launched in the UK and Star Wars: Battlefront II is available on the PS2, Xbox and for PC, which more people own than they do PSP's. As the days go by to this years christmas holiday season GTA: Liberty City Stories will most likely still be at the highest point of the charts around the world!

  11. Ah... man... it feels like Christmas morning again. Welcome back Switch after your long absense!
  12. Take 2 Interactive have provided a financial update with some pretty interesting news in it. As always the full press release is on their site if you want to read the whole thing. Also in the press release was a little insight into the reasons behind the European release delay. So the end of November is unfortunately how long we have to wait until we can play the game. But don't get too upset, they also announced a brand new GTA title for the PSP, due to launch during next year. The title of the game still remains a mystery. By the sounds of it we will be enjoying 2 new Grand Theft Auto's next year. Hopefully one for the Playstation 3 and definitely one for the Sony PSP! While it may be a bit early to discuss this new portable title, we have made it its own forum for discussion in our newly upgraded Invision Forums. We've also made a topic for discussion of the game's title, I've started by listing some domains owned by Rockstar and their possible uses (such as gtamiami.com). Please read that and post your own thoughts.
  13. Experience has taught me that no one will realy donate any money to a website like this. Although it has also taught me that you will never know untill you have tried.
  14. The Liberty City Stories section of YourPSP.com has recently been updated to reveal the game will feature Game Sharing. For those of you who are not familiar with game sharing, it means you and a friend can share one copy of Liberty City Stories and play at the same time. It is also very likely that the multiplayer feature will also be available during game sharing. However, is this a huge feature? The PSP has a mere 11mbps wireless network connection, and it surely does not have enough RAM to store the entire game map and everything else encompassed in it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it plays. Thanks to Scooby for finding this little snippet of information.
  15. Costed me $15 to find them, but hey! It was well worth it.
  16. Gamesradar have today added an exclusive preview for Liberty City Stories that focuses on the side missions for Liberty City Stories. Apart from the usual Insane Stunt Jumps Gamesradar has posted info on the all new side missions that includes Trashmaster, Karmageddon, Noodle Punk and Car Salesman (yes you heard me). They have also posted 5 brand new screenshots. Links: Gamesradar Preview and new screenshots *UPDATE* IGN have also added a side missions preview, they look at some different ones, including the following: They also have some new screenshots with their article.
  17. Don't worry guys there will be detailed info soon for you to taste
  18. Firstcom music recently announced the theme song for Liberty City Stories "March Popakov Remix". MTV.com also recently had their opportunity to play Liberty City Stories. Most interestingly from their preview is the info on the soundtrack for the game. Source: MixOnline Preview: MTV.com
  19. mmm..... why do I find that hard to believe? Anyway chris82 I was talking about SAn Andreas V.2 which you can buy in stores, not the 1.1 patch.
  20. IGN recently interviewed Gordon Hall, one of the founders of Rockstar Leeds. The interview is arguably better than the one with Frank Vincent, as Hall discusses some interesting things on how they managed to bring such a great and powerful game to the PSP. IGN have also posted 3 new screenshots. Links: IGN Interview and new screenshots
  21. Even though PEDS is my favourite show of all time, I completely forgot to post about it when it launched. Well it is never too late or too early to post about them and a good time to introduce it from this site is when they just released "Just A Short 4 - Hot Coffee". Ok, so you might ask what the hell is PEDS? Well it is based on the popular Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and using the wonderfull art of machinima they create a TV series with pedestrians of the city. They are already at episode 8 and are becoming more and more popular in both the GTA world and the machinima community. They recently released a short where the PEDS discuss some hot coffee (yes, you know what i'm talking about) which is totally funny . If you think you can do the same to what the great folks over at PEDS are doing, why not download Vice City and Liberty City studios over here . On their site you can download all episodes in both low and high resolution versions. If you are fortunate enough to be a PSP owner why not download the PSP formatted versions and watch it on there?

  22. Personally I think he has done a "hell of a lot" and its quite great. So did the fire caught you up there in LA mister rappo?
