"I was reading the other day about GTA IV's online multiplayer modes. Apparently you can have a team of cops vs a team of crooks, who have to make it to the the harbour while the cops pursue them. It sounds like a blast!"

Was that in Edge? I read that too, it sounds AMAZING.

I just think it becomes more incongruous the longer the series goes and the more realistic the graphics get.

I smirked the first time around, but now I find it just tedious.

I quite like the graphics as they were from the first game. Though the improvements, I find the simple artistic style very chamring.

You know i could well imagine one of the famous 2000AD artists doing the graphics for a game like this.

For instance..... Mike MacMahon.

It's a mock up.

I hoppe doesn't offend any of the local on thsi messageboard.

Of course I didn't do it.

But it clearly displays the fancy writing style that has become trade mark for the GTA series.

I do feel that with the developers being based in Scotland it's surprising they've never had some sort of GTA Glasgow expansion pack, although it would probably need re-dubbed for the states.

They have had the ongoing adventures of Love Fist though: "We're aw gonnae die. Ah'm gittin' pished!"
We never really die.

I've noticed that also.

I was hopin for something more Celtic.

Slaine.. perhaps.

That had been my pet idea for dream game ( Not sure if thsi was anybody else') ever since I first played GTA : Liberty City in a computer Cafe and while had at the same time picked up copy of and started reading the 'Time Killer' and 'The Horned God' reprints a few years back.

It's why I mentioned Mike MacMahon earlier. It's his art work that may best suited that medium.

of corse it ttoally reworked as a archaic fantacy and not have any of the modern contrivances of every other GTA game.

Fuck knows what anyone outside of Britain made of Shaun Ryder's character in San Andreas!

How high do you have to be to spaff off to a photo of Margaret Thatcher?!

Nope it was GTA 1 which had the London expansion. In fact, there were two of the blighters.
Nobody warned me I would be so awesome.

apparantly if you like a song in the game you can phone a special number with your ingame mobile and get a special code.  You then go to amazon and get the song with the code, no mention if this is free or at a doscount price but a nice idea to bring interaction into the real world.  As long as they dont expect you to do a drive by to get it.

I hadn't really been keeping up with what's in it, but I like the idea of the comedy clubs.

First I heard of Jimmy Carr doing ingame stand up was this, so.

Seems like it would be a good way for developers to get cheaper content - sign up unknown comedians/bands/artists/photographers and use their material to furnish comedy clubs/radio stations/galleries in the game.
