http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/action/gta4/preview_6103822.html

So it looks like the new GTA is going to have a whole shitload of new stuff. The most interesting to me is the fact that there will be several gyms placed through the cities, and some weird food system like Snake Eater. If you neglect the gym you're character will get fat. They have screen shots of a very fit CJ, and a obese and exhausted CJ.

Also instead of San Andreas posing as a parody of San Fransico it's posing as a parody of the entire state of California. There will then be three major cities you can venture into. I guess they are saying that travelling from one city to the next via major highways won't conjur up ANY loading screens like the games before it, and that the loading screens will only be seen when entering buildings.

*This proved not to be true*

One thing that fans have been wanting for a while is the first person shooting thing. You'll finally be able to take a weapon of any range and get a good first person aim for easily accessible head shots...ofcourse with all the additions to gunplay and combat the AI is going to have to get alot smarter to offer a challenge.
*not as easy or actual first person*

If I went on too much I'd just be repeating the preview Gamespot provided but this fucking game looks awesome...though some aspects of it leave me wondering how well it will work. Anyway, read and share thoughts like you people do.

Edit: Oh! And he can fucking swim! It's about time!

I wonder too, if all the new functions will work well.

The game however, looks like Rockstar is just tryig to appeal to the "ghetto" liking crowd. (The making of games like NBA Street, Def Jam Vendetta, etc). Unfortuneately, every wigger that lives around here wishes they were exactly like the people in San Andreas and it's really pathetic.

The saving grace though, is that it's not completely serious ghetto, like how Vice City wasn't trying to create a serious 80's scene, because it's already a joke. Hopefully they keep that in mind while making a ghetto game.

Being a native San Franciscan, I can tell you we aren't that ghetto yet, but whatever, the game will probably be fun as hell. I just have to wait for the Xbox version.

I'm not sure I know what you're talking about with this "ghetto" thing and relating it to Def Jam and NBA street. GTA always takes certain aspects of pop culture (mostly films and music of a particular era) and makes fun of them.

GTA 3 really milked the godfather type films, vice city was a page right out of scarface and your typical 80's crime shows, and now San Andreas is going to take a crack at the early 90's which is where ghetto life, while already in full swing, really started to hit mainstream media in both music and movies.

PS: I already told you San Andreas isn't San Francisco, it's california. One of the main cities is Los Santos which is going to be LA - compton style. There is a city based on San Francisco in the game, but I'm willing to bet it's less of a ghetto. Don't expect every part of the city to be shitty, Downtown vice City was real nice but when you got to little haiti/havanna...shit. The next city represents Las Vegas...which I don't really understand, but it's better than playing GTA: Nevada. Think 90's rap, the east coast west coast battles, Tupac and Dr. Dre, and then think of all those ghetto movies that spawned in the early 90's...basically every movie that Don't Be A Menace made fun of. It's a very appropriate setting for a Grand Theft Auto game and really, it's the next natural step.

I know plenty well where this game will take place, thank you (Start in Los Santos, unlock new areas to move to [San Fierro, Las Venturas], much akin to past GTA installments. I have subscriptions for 7 different video game magazines and it's getting plenty of coverage.

If you have any questions, I can probably answer them.

When I brought up the 'ghetto' thing, I was stating how I think video game companies are capitalizing on the whole concept. I don't having a problem with it, because the games are overly decent and sell well.

Dick's got a PS2, so I might not have to wait. Then again, that's getting within a month of Halo 2 and one day of the new SG-1 box set, so I might be spending conservatively.
I really hope no one comes over here right now.

I thought so.

I hope they do Baltimore or Detroit next.

So what cities have they done so far? Miami, NYC, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco?

since ive already seen lots of backlash from people about the ghetto, thug life theme of this game, assuming rockstar takes that to heart i dont imagine there will be a detroit.

they should do a jersey city. jersey city is a complete fucking shithole from what i hear. there was some big thread at SA yesteray about how much of a bullet ridden cesspool it is, and how there are some big gang uprisings brewing. GTA can move into the 21st century with GTA: New Jersey. split it up between jersey and across the river in new york.

Yeah, GTA London 1969. I'm not sure how it went over or how it would go over in the US though. They could do some very cool mafia shit in Chicago, and when they run out of ideas for cities they could just start over with different time periods/stories...I wouldn't mind really, aslong as I can kill cops and sell drugs. It's a life goal that the real world won't let me acheive.

Ofcourse now that we've got transport to other cities like in GTA 2 it wouldn't be too rediculous if future games would have you leaving a city like Chicago by plane to a city like London on "business" or something like that. There's always been an airport, might aswell take it to the next level.

I think it would be kinda cool to be able to fly your own plane to different cities, or even hijack an airliner similar to the way you can carjack people (never gonna happen though after 9/11).

I guess since Vice City has Helicopters you could probably be able to grab those and stuff like that to go to other parts of the world. The 9/11 thing makes it so that your character probably will never toss a pilot out of a plane...but if there's no pilot, the plane could be up for grabs.

A 30's Prohibition game in Chicago would kick ass, but too bad it's been done in "Mafia". They should still do it though, the music from the time period kicks ass, and they could make it ten times better than Mafia. It would just suck because they would catch all this shit about plagiarizing and everything.

That would be cool, instead of talk shows they could do radio theater, like the shadow. That could be pretty funny. Still, the music would suck.

It's called MacSyndicate and it was made for the Macintosh in 1992.

One of my favorite games ever.

I would like a Euro GTA.

But before any of that, I want San Andreas to come out. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.
