  1. You can catch it on GameTrailers.com now: http://www.gametrailers.com/gametrailerstv...p;ch=1&sd=1
  2. Yeah it's hard to say, I'm thinking the stuff removed was the sexual content that was mentioned earlier today in the news. From what I read, it sounds like the kind of thing our board wouldn't let through, insinuated or not, they would still consider it "obscene"...
  3. Seems the game wasn't tame enough for our fantastic rating system Source: RockstarWatch
  4. Agreed, April Fools finished at 12pm on April 1st. Thats long gone, locked.
  5. Nice find, pretty sure they have surfaced before, but good never the less. Pitty about the watermarkings though.
  6. Not sure if these are of use, but here's slightly larger thumbnails of the 3 concepts:
  7. Forums link at the end of the article is dead, on the homepage it links to "http://www.thegtaplace.com/index.php?showtopic=15858" instead of "http://www.thegtaplace.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15858". The "topic" bbcode needs to be fixed to make it a full url like "http://www.thegtaplace.com/forums/index.php?showtopic={topicID}" rather then just "index.php?showtopic={topicID}"
  8. Need I say more? http://www.rockstarwatch.net/news/271/unus...e-introduction/
  9. I never did much in Flash before, but I decided to try and make a countdowner to IV, anyway long story short I made two (2) slightly different ones (you'll notice the difference straight up). Just wanted to know what you guys thought, thanks. No. #1 No. #2
  10. Thats okay, Chris posted it and nicely thanked someone else for the effort, how great is that?
  11. IGN has posted an article covering NaturalMotion's Euphoria Technology and Grand Theft Auto IV. Here is a quick list of some of the amazing things Rockstar have implemented it in: * Niko's stance will adjust depending on the grade of ground he is standing on * Niko is also spatially aware of his environment (in layman's terms, he knows where walls and potential dangers are) * While standing on hills and mountains his knee's and feet will incline or decline on an angle * He walks with a noticeable counterbalance, keeping his center of gravity correct * When running at a fast speed he will be proactive in pushing open doors (because he is spatially aware of his surroundings, he will know the door is there and thus push it open without stopping) * When shot enough, enemies will fall backwards and slouch, trying to regain their last ounces of breath. * Car physics are sickenly realistic; rear-end another car and the people in the front seat will propel through the windscreen. * Same goes for side-on's, bailing from the car while in acceleration (similar to what you could do in Vice CIty onwards, only a little more realistic now) * When tackling walls, staircases or even just falling Niko's hands and feet are controlled automatically to ensure all his movements are realistic and play true * Niko will duck into a commando roll when he falls to far * Euphoria also controls how the new drunk feature works -- drunken, stumbling shamble, and camera blurs adding to the disorientation * When clinging to trucks (as seen in trailer #2) he will hold on more forcefully when the truck takes corners * Pedestrians are also proactive to weather formation and will change their actions (for example running) when it is going to begin to rain momentarily Very impressive stuff, we're just itching to play this game just to see how the physics work. There is no doubt, this game is going to re-define gaming a second time for the franchise. Be it the game play that is being raved about of the physics that have never been attempted before, this is unmissable. IGN and comprehensive list by RockstarWatch
  12. Should i.... make it any bigger? I doubt you read the whole article, neonfire. Wow, talk about stuck up. I don't believe rumors are restricted from forum posts my good sir . Also, i is capitalized (thus, I) in the English language when placed singly. Hard to say whether it is real or fake, it could affect there rating, but then again they've been doing inside jokes like this for years, so maybe not...
  13. I don't know how it works in other countries, but here ratings are a recommended guideline tool. For example MA15+ here means it is recommended to persons over 15+, if your not over 15 it is recommended you are accompanied by an adult or persons over 18. The only exclusions are X, XX and XXX (pornography). Same with all games and movie. When I was 10 I could see an M15+ or MA15+ movie if a parent was with me.
  14. Well don't take the "18+" as being generally bad. The rating under that is 16+, which wouldn't really fit the game I don't think since it is adult oriented. 18+ is rather equal to Australia's MA15+ rating that the game received the other week. So I can't see it being bad, in fact I can see the game being released everywhere just fine.

  16. Mate, it's before the internet or Windows even :P.

  17. So what's your point? Things change, get over it. If you don't like the changes then put up a good argument or leave. I wasn't unhappy about the fact there is changes going on, in fact it's not my problem, your choice. I don't have a problem with the changes or even changes in general, my problem was the way we mirror changes to follow trends of other sites rather then flying on our own. As I have said many times before, but of course, as if I would know anything right? Just seems silly to follow sites we are obviously more popular than...
  18. Nearly seems as if we are doing the same thing another site did, oh wait thats cause we are doing the same thing . Lame.
  19. Trust Chris to hell at someone trying to do their job,what an azzhole! . And yeah, I doubt it. Take-Two games being there (under the 2K Games label) is new, but they are vastly different to the Rockstar Games company now days.
  20. Yeah, they were leaked, well not leaked but released by accident before they were meant to be. So Rockstar have requested that sites like TheGTAPlace remove them. That's why the news item for them has disappeared off TGTAP forums and main site. So yeah, I understand where you are coming from with the credit and all, it would be fine, but sadly due to the situation we can't have it posted because we want to respect the requests of R*. Once they are officially released though, feel free to re-add them . I'm sorry for the inconvenience mate, I really am, it was a terrific piece of work.
  21. I'm afraid I have to remove wallpaper #2 due to the request of Rockstar a few weeks ago. Those wanted posts aren't allowed to be posted, sorry. However, I love the other wallpapers, terrific work!
