The Liberty City Internet Connection

Recommended Posts

ok guys, since R* already confirmed an internet in LC, let's talk about what kind of feature we want in there

here's quote from Playstation Mag Australia

GTA IV's unique internet, still relatively misterious at this point, was only briefly touched on, so it's potential and it's implications are unknown.

"the internet acts as a kind of discovery tool, and an information aggregator for whats happening in the city. it also another great way for Niko to communicate with his connections. he can access his account from any computer in LC that has an internet access." explain an R* spokesperson.

new ways? information? news from Niko's life? let's talk about it :lol:

Well, so, where would be the computers located... maybe the trunks of cars, just because I think i heard about selling guns & etc sells at the trunks of cars um... most likely all safehouses? Well anyways would you be able to send e-mails instead of only recieving e-mails like in the other GTA games... I don't know how we'd be able to send... :huh:

This is a great new feature made by R* :thumbsup:

well, they said GTA IV will also have internet cafes, and i think yeah, there will be computers in safehouses.

anyways since not many of you guys replied this, i'll just go on, what i want from this is a daily information from liberty city, how somebody was killed by niko in some mission, or better yet, when he walks around and simply kill a guy in freeroam, maybe even some police chase news, you know like some of us wanted

maybe we can get some information about organized crime in LC that present time, you know, how has it been, maybe there's a news about Claude being a criminal of the city :dribble:

You could use normal internet with it also so u don't need alt tab the game out :P, maybe there would be some police sites where are pictures and descriptons of criminals u have to kill or find.

I heard Niko uses it to browse TheGTAPlace.com when he's not on a mission. He just loves reading the latest happenings in the world of Grand Theft Auto, and also likes to read what people say about him.

LOL, I wonder if they'll actually take a few screenshots of this site and put them on GTA IV's internet.

Well on a more serious note I think that the internet, (using email) will actually mean that its a totally new and innotive way to access missions. And also because YAHOO hosted the 2nd trailer they could be on the internet in GTAIV.

ok, guys, what do you really want? the magazine said that they were expecting something that far exceeds a mere gimmick, so R* must have been working hard for this feature unless they want it to be crappy.

it also says that you could also communicate w/ your connections trough the LC internet, so i reckon that we can use email to call people on the internet, maybe do our dirty work. :lol:

I have a feeling that this feature is VERY limited.

You can probably see news of the dead victims you murdered.

Use the laptop to bash people.

Google porn. :lol:

lawl that would be fun. Another idea is that you could download a virus and put it on someone's computer.

MASS PORN POP-UPS

maybe when you are wanted and you aceed to a computer you will be able to hack to the police database and erase all the info on you.

and maybe you can order special weapons that you wont get in stores in the ammu nation website

i would like to be able to order cars

I'd say it will be in Rockstar style, fake clones of famous sites, like Google and such, like they have done in the past with products and items. I can't see them having real life sites and such, could leave open attacks from viruses and such, also limits its use them, they say it will be of use to missions, so why would they have real websites?

that's good, i like those ideas, it's like that game mercenary, we can order items, weapons and cars.

but maybe in GTA IV, the order will came to your main safehouse, and it delivered with packages.

i also like the idea of reducing heat from computers :lol: , that's like NFS most wanted, only we could erase the file!!! B)

Yeah cos that's funny....

Including the internet in the game was no way what I ever expected.....although I've noticed all those people that never believed email would be in the game have gone quiet now.....:D

They say it's going to be massive, I can't picture what they'll actually put in it, of course I'm hoping for porn but that's probably unlikely, maybe a fake ebay, and other places to spend your cash? Like exotics in scarface? (kudos to the guy that originally started the thread on wanting exotics in GTAIV)
