    I wasn't even legally allowed to play GTA when I joined here because looking at my old profile picture of me standing on tower bridge, I must've been 13/14. Luckily the last thing I downloaded on my PC was someone trying to calm a potato down, so it is a fitting swap. I see a few names here that I remember! Hey there folks! It's been an age a while. Eh, since I was last active here? Jumps over 10 years in time. I finished high school, moved away from home briefly to go to university and study graphic design, which I've graduated in and working in retail now. I still play GTA, recently finished the story of GTA V again a week ago (so I could do some achievement hunting on console) but mostly I spend my life on discord or playing Overwatch these days.

    About Vice City

    Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - Introduction to the game as said on the official website. Welcome to Vice City. Welcome to the 1980s. Having just made it back onto the streets of Liberty City after a long stretch in maximum security, Tommy Vercetti is sent to Vice City by his old boss, Sonny Forelli. They were understandably nervous about his re-appearance in Liberty City, so a trip down south seemed like a good idea. But all does not go smoothly upon his arrival in the glamorous, hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. He's set up and is left with no money and no merchandise. Sonny wants his money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters, and corrupt politicians stand in his way. Most of Vice City seems to want Tommy dead. His only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself. From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the glamorous, hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. He's set up and is left with no money and no merchandise. Vice City is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, and is the most varied, complete and alive digital city ever created. Combining non-linear gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and are given the opportunity to take it over as you choose. Continued here.Main Characters Main Characters Voice of Tommy Vercetti Ray Liotta Sonny Forelli Tom Sizemore Lance Vance Philip Michael Thomas Ken Rosenberg William Fichtner Colonel Cortez Robert Davi Ricardo Diaz Luis Guzmán Avery Carrington Burt Reynolds Kent Paul Danny Dyer Umberto Robina Danny Trejo Phil Cassidy Gary Busey Mitch Baker Lee Majors Mercedes Cortez Fairuza Balk Jezz Torrent (Love Fist) Kevin McKidd Willy (Love Fist) Mark Hanlon Dick (Love Fist) Peter McKay Percy (Love fist) Russell Foreman Weapons Melee Weapons Weapons Description Brass knuckles are slightly more powerful than the standard fist. You only need one or two swings to waste someone. The screwdriver can quite easily damage vehicles and waste people. A great choice for a starter melee weapon. You can buy these from hardware stores around Vice City The hammer is just the same as the screwdriver however it can inflict slightly more damage on things. This can also be bought from hardware stores across Vice City. The golf club can seriously harm a person and destroy a vehicle, it is quite powerful. You can obtain one of these for free by driving a caddy or going to the golf club. The nightstick has almost the same power as the gold club. You can obtain one by killing a cop. The baseball bat is the same as the golf club if not more powerful. The knife is good for hacking people, however you cannot slit peoples throats in GTA Vice City. Meat Cleaver: same as the knife Machete: same as knife The Katana is similar to the knife but it is even more powerful. It can hack peoples' heads off after one or two swings The chainsaw is the most powerful melee weapon. People run away if it makes even a noise in the street. Pistols Weapons Description This is basically the most standard gun in the game, every police officer carries it. It is a very common gun and can bought in most of the Ammu-Nation stores. The official name of this particular pistol is called the Colt .45. The Colt Python is more effective as a weapon than the Colt .45 as it causes more damage to the victim. It can kill with one bullet, however it only carries 8 bullets per round. Shotguns Weapons Description The Chrome Shotgun is most common shotgun you can find. You will receive one with five rounds as soon as you enter a police car. It can do a heavy amount of damage and can often kill a person with one shot. The Stubby Shotgun can do slightly more damage than the Chrome Shotgun but it isn't as fast as the SPAZ-12's firing. It can also kill someone with one shot. The SPAZ-12 Shotgun is the most powerful shotgun in the game. It will take two to four rounds to blow up a vehicle. Sub-Machine Guns Weapons Description The Tec-9 isn't the best of all the guns but it has the highest amount of capacity for bullets. The Ingram Mac 10 is slightly better with more rapid firing. It is a better choice than the Tec-9. You can also run and fire at the same time and it is quite cheap too. So it's a good gun to get a hold of. The Uzi 9mm isn't as good as the Mac 10 however, it has enough power to wipe out a crowd quite fast. It is quite popular so is worth using in GTA Vice City. The MP5 is the best Sub-Machine gun in GTA Vice City. You can wipe out a crowd of people quite fast with this so it is worth using. Assault Rifles Weapons Description The Ruger isn't as good as the other assault rifle and is most likely the first assault rifle you will encounter. 1st Person aiming isn't all that great and the gun's firing power is rather low. Not a good gun overall. The Colt M4 is more effective than the Ruger but it still isn't good due to the first person aiming. It has a better firing power and is recommended as a gun for under 3 wanted stars. Heavy Weaponry Weapons Description The Rocket Launcher is self explanatory. It shoots rockets, once these rockets hit something or someone then there is an explosion... BOOM! It is a great gun to use in police chases of virtually any level. You cannot travel on foot fast with this thing though. The Colt M60 is arguably the second most powerful gun in the game. You can kill with one shot with this gun and it'll take four or five shots to blow up a car. It isn't used by anyone other than Tommy so you'd have an advantage against almost everyone else in the game. The Flamethrower is also self explanatory, it shoots out flames. It is quite a powerful gun. especially with big crowds. It causes death almost instantaneously. The minigun is the most powerful gun in the entire game, if not the entire GTA series. It will annihilate anyway in your way including people, cars and any other vehicle. You can buy one of these off of Phil Cassidy later in the game. Sniper Rifles Weapons Description The Sniper Rifle is the most basic Sniper Rifle. It is good for shooting from a distance as it has a scope on it and will blow someone's head off if you shoot it - but you have to aim for their head for this to happen. The PSG-1 Laser Sniper Rifle is almost the same as the Sniper Rifle. It is better than the other one. It has a better aim, a better range and comes with a laser. This is the better choice although there isn't that much difference between the two. Projectiles Weapons Description The grenade is the most common projectile and arguably the most powerful. It's a good weapon to use in crowded areas and it gives you around 3 seconds to run away before it explodes The tear gas isn't really an effective weapon as it doesn't kill people. It aids you by creating a cloud of smoke in a certain area where you aim and reduces visibility within the smoke for you run away or kill people in the gas. This can only be found behind the Police building in Washington Beach The molotov cocktail is quite a powerful projectile, you can throw it and when it hits the ground it bursts into flames, burning victims to death. This is the same as a grenade, however you detonate it by remote control. Health and Armor There are two types of Power Ups in GTA Vice City: Armor and Health. Having health is vital for completing the game. If Tommy runs out of health then 'Wasted' will show up on the screen and will begin to fade out. After that, Tommy will be at the nearest hospital, losing all of his weapons and having to pay $100 for the treatment. Health is basically the amount of damage Tommy can take, if it goes below 10 then it is advisable that you get pick up a power up. Armor isn't a necessity for completing the game, however it is recommended for Tommy to endure battles for longer. Picking up an armour power up will increase Tommy's likelihood of surviving in a battle by 100 points - it's like having 200 health. There are ways you can increase the maximum armour and health limit: If you complete 10 levels of the Pizza Delivery side missions then you will get 150 health points. If you complete 12 levels of the Vigilante side missions then you will get 150 armour points. If you complete the game 100%, you will get 200 health and armour points. Here is a list of locations where you pick up health and armor: Click Here Please note that all locations indicated with a star (*) are places in which obtaining the power up costs Tommy. Places without the star (*) are free.

    New Year, New TGTAP

    Happy New Year guys! I may make a return but I keep saying that, so who knows. GTA V being around the corner is a perfect opportunity to get TGTAP back to what it was in terms of activity. Nice changes thus far ^^
  9. Belated Happy New Year / Christmas to all :3

  10. I can haz mudkipz trolololol - mmk

  11. Thomas.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year folks!
  12. Month late but Happy Birthday! Also Merry Christmas, oh yeah, and Happy New Year! :P I really ought to come on here more often... How you been lately?

    Rebuild TGTAP

    I feel somewhat bad, I used to contribute a lot to this forum and I still feel like a part of the community despite going, as one could say "AWOL" for the near part of a year, coming back once every two or three months. The big issue here isn't with the forums, it's that the GTA series has died because there has been a sheer lack of any information on any new game that could potentially be released in the next few years. That's what GTA communities need, a brand spanking new GTA game for everyone to get excited about. Moving swiftly on... As for the poll, I voted on the following: - New and more active staff: I feel somewhat guilty here as well, being a forum boss. I haven't been around to look after the Vice City Forum. With regards to this issue, it's weird that I know every single one of the staff members and I have only been gone a year and a half - in other words, it's practically the same since I left, except there's no Spaz The Great anymore. - Extra site features and new types of content: Self explanatory, although I'm not quite sure what needs to be added but it would be certainly a good addition. - Focus on the gang system again: I would totally rejoin the Fiore Family Mafia if it were to be recreated, of course, the gang system would need to be rebooted. I would never have a problem with the gang system, in fact, it kept me on here when I was bored. It will certainly increase activity but I know that not everyone will be for this option. I gave me some great memories to say the least. In the likely event that after I post this message I won't be seen for another 2 months (Facebook and MSN non-inclusive for those who have either), I would like to wish you good luck in revamping and hopefully bringing the forums back up to its former glory, or better. Alternatively, I could try to come on here more often, I miss talking to some of you guys, especially Scott., Spider-Vice, mpilk, Gerard and so on... it could be good to return as a full time member
  14. Uh... a bit late but my third Happy New Year in a row to the TGTAP!

  15. Blimey... it's pretty dead here :(

    1. Gerard


      Yep, Chris refuses to do anything :/

  16. Blimey... it's pretty dead here :(

  17. I guess I have returned again for the 17th time this year D: :P

    1. Gerard


      Make your mind up!!

  18. Thanks! And I have an Xbox 360 but still no LIVE unfortunately. I'm not going to bother since I'll find it damn near impossible getting internet in my room without spending an extra £50 for a wireless connector thing. :(

    Terrorism 2010

    As we have recently heard on the news, terrorism seems to be making a comeback in many lives - not the ever so minor car bombs and shootings but the larger ones involving aeroplanes. Today the British government raised the terrorism attack threat level to "Severe", one step below critical as this follows the planned and failed attack on Detroit on Christmas 2009. Recent terrorist attacks, attacks that have happened in the past few years in the UK were the Glasgow Airport bombing in which nobody innocent died and the London attacks. Obviously it's not just the UK being effected but these were some of the worse. The United Kingdom will be introducing full body scanners at many major airports next week. I don't really like the idea of this, our privacy is being intruded by the government whenever we want to leave the country or travel domestically within the country. Do you think there will be a major terrorist attack this year? Or will it be another way for the press and governments to scare us?
  20. RDR is great :D

    2. The Bossman

      The Bossman

      There's gonna be a patch soon stopping people from repeatedly killing a person in free roam and they can't escape without quitting, amongst other fixes. Will make the game even better.

  21. Good birthday lie-in... :3

  22. Thomas.


    Finally 16... but only by a few minutes. WOOOOOO! This be my 3rd year on here, wonderful site. :3
  23. Not really apart from becoming Prefect in school but that's not really insane :P you?
