  1. I wont give anything away about the story here, just the glitch.

    I'm about 62 missions through the game (or so). I started playing through the mission, and then in the building, suddenly all the furniture dissapeared, and the disc refused to load any new objects. I was forced to find invisible enemies and kill them, thanks to the auto aim, had to go down invisible stairs and had to find my way around objects (e.g. desks or cabinets etc) in the level. I had to walk out the door at the end, it was all blue and invisible enemies again - and some of the invisible cars parked outside exploded nearly killing me.

    Luckily, the disc began loading thing in again - it was just an annoying thing to happen.

  2. The brightness is slightly annoying, but can be changed in the in game options, I've got used to it now though.

    The cops are easy to get away from on 1 and 2* after a little but of work, it is more real and fun to escape. 3* plus is a bit of a challenge, but is good.

  3. Theg graphics are very good, but I also get let down my some fuzziness every now and again on my HDTV as well. And a few frame rate drops. However, above this they have done a very good job, with some scenes looking like real life, and others looking very good.

    I have looked into the problem and there doesnt seem to be such a problem with frame rate and fuzziness on a standard def TV, it looks much more stable - but not as good in the better scenes due to HDTV's higher res etc.

  4. According to a recent article at the UK's TimesOnline, the game may be the most expensive game to make in the industry's history. Leslie Benzies, one of the leading producers for GTAIV, estimates that the total cost to create GTAIV sits at the astounding $100 million mark. Yep, that's right- "It's like making a theatre production, a few movies and an album all to fit into one package," he said. While he can't put an exact price tag on the production, he believes that $100m mark isn't far off; over 1,000 people had a part in developing the blockbuster, after all. But even if it is accurate, don't worry about Rockstar. Analysts expect the game to rake in over $400 million in the first week of sales alone.

    Grand Theft Auto IV is bound to be a phenomenon, and it probably comes as no surprise that it costs a mountain of cash to develop and produce. But $100 million? That's just insane. Let's hope it's all worth it in the end!

    Wow! Thats about the amount they use to make films with! Rockstar have put alot of effort into this game as they do for all their games and I'm very happy to hear it.

    F-ing hell! $100m - thats loads of cash!! Just to put it into perspective, here are some things to compare it to

    Lord Of The Rings movies: They cost $99m EACH on average (2001 / 2002 / 2003)

    The Lost World: Jurassic Park - $75m in 1997

    James Bond: Goldeneye - $60m in 1995

    GTA IV: $100m

    I think Crackdown was just under $50m and Halo was around $60m - but thats just from what I've read in the past, it may not be true.

    Its bound to be worth it though, it is a masterpiece. I hope they can make enough profit to continue making GTA games!

  5. I hope cheats fuck up the game again. I don't use them but I don't want to be tempted AT ALL.

    I dont want to be tempted to cheat either - I'm saying now that I wont use them. But if the game gets difficult, I dont want to know about cheats, I'll look after the main story!!

  6. Enjoyed every second of it. Perfect. Niko seems like the best character yet.

    I agree. The video was good, it gave us some background information on the mysterious Niko - and explains a few things, and shows what his feelings are. Rockstar have thought of just about everything! And the graphics looked great

  7. A mate has just told me, that his mate ordered GTA IV, Special Edition from HMV and he recieved it today. And my mate is expected to have his soon, maybe tommorow.

    But can this true?

    Might be true, but I have a Special Edition pre-order with them for my youbger brother, I havent had a dsipatch notification yet. I think they're posting them monday as they're using Special Delivery for free.

  8. Actualy you can here them from other cars because thats GTA's new feature. And when you exit the vehicle the radio still plays. One of the game magazines once said that you could listen to the music whil walking.

    You bloody bumper! Bumpers should be warned, unless its bringing up an interesting topic that people can still reply to. Or if its a funny bump :D

    Amazing poll though, I would have voted last year, or a few months back

  9. I have just called 'Game' and they said thay are opening their store in Carmarthen at Midnight (Tuesday 12AM) for 1 hour (and aswell for most 'Game' stores) for people who have preordered I will update this once I have contacted Gamestation and HMV.

    I would have gone out to Camarthen to get it - I thought, "nah Camarthen wont do it" lol! I pre ordered with GAME online, instead of in-store argghhhh!!!

  10. Lol, Niko looks like a midget :lol:

    lol. what makes you say that? i honestly think his head is too big!

    Exatley, his body looks quite small with a sort of regular sized head, a lot of midgets looks like this I think. Good work though :D - trying to kill time before GTA IV!

  11. Seems sorta fake to me. The date at the top left looks a bit weird, along with the message at the bottom of the letter. I also believe more information would have been included, and we would have heard from shops by now. Whats the point in sending a letter which may not get to shops until Saturday?

  12. I have no chance, I have a PC in my house with

    512mb RAM on XP

    1.8GHZ Processsor - AMD of some sort

    128mb graphics - lol

    And its slow, crammed and about 4+ years old


    My laptop i'm using now, lololol

    2gb RAM on Vista

    1.9GHZ Intel Dual Core

    128mb ATI onboard graphics

    DVD (x16 i think)

    Never mind, 360 it is!
