New Digital Screens and Gordan Hall Interview From IGN Preview
Looks like Vic has a tattoo on his arm
Vic and Lance look really bad. Wearing shocking suits. Terrible Player Models (Probably a Beta though)
Shooting from boat. Really cool
Vic in the car with the Cross Dresser. Possibly Mikala from K-Chat in VC. Also there is an asian gang following them. Could be a new gang in Vice City.
A Nice Jet Ski/Chopper Pic

Firtsly I'd like to say these screens could be alot better. After looking at them Im definatley not impressed.

Summary Of Gordon Hall Interview

- There are twice as many pologons per block in VCS than there were in LCS
- When you take to the water on Jet-Ski's (depending on weather conditions you may be alble to bounce up and down, and momentarily go underneath the water.
- Using the new Draw Distance players will be able to see much further

When you are in the air, pedestrians, cars, and anything on the ground will scale down depending on how close or far the player is to them, much as they would in real life.
- Aerial and Boat vehicles both take roles in Multiplayer
- They are really pleased with the First time vehicles making appearances.
- The targeting System has been tweaked once more, it's taken a fresh look although it isnt a complete overhaul
- The combat system has more depth to it than previous GTA games,

the biggest change has been to unarmed combat - you can now perform grappling moves and throws, you can get on top of an opponent on the ground for ground domination, and more.
(Sounds cool Yes)


the soundtrack has over 100 tracks, and is probably the best, deepest collection of songs ever assembled for any one project -- TV, Film, or Game.
There just some of the things mentioned in the Interview. Check it out here

After reading the Interview Im a definatley happy with how this game is turning out. I just hope hand to hand combat isnt too complex. Rockstar never seem to make things too complex though, which is awesome.

Edit: Im also keeping a close eye on Gamespot. Although they are not as sharp as IGN, in the past they have been prone to having GTA updates on saturdays.

The Chopper looks nice.

Larry Novellino 09-08-2006 09:29 PM

Nice to see that visible interiors have returned, or have they? *Me thinks back to San Andreas beta pics..*

Slim Trashman 09-08-2006 09:42 PM

Hmm, pool tables, tattoo, possible returning features? Hot screenshots. Thanks for posting ;)

Asif 09-08-2006 09:45 PM

Nice coverage Victim, good to see there's a new variant of chopper.

Slim Trashman 09-08-2006 09:47 PM

Yeah I noticed that. I didn't know if it was my eyes or some glitchy texture in the background. Not the best angle, looks to be maybe a coastguard chopper?

Asif 09-08-2006 09:56 PM

That should be TV chopper, you know Vic has to ski for a chocolate ad and the camera will be rolled from a chopper.

Slim Trashman 09-08-2006 10:05 PM

Ah yeah, that mission with the film studio where he does all kinds of crazy stunts.

victim 09-08-2006 10:09 PM

Maybe there will be Tattoo customizing. I just hope that isnt Vic's equivelent to Tommy's Soiree. Is it just me or does Vic have a massive line down his right side in the pic with the m4 and Lance. Or is it just lighting and shadowing?

Asif 09-08-2006 10:23 PM

Ya, that looks like lightening, has the same effect on his left arm.

victim 09-08-2006 10:50 PM

It's bad lighting. Do you agree. And Vic looks really old in that photo with the weird lighting.

Asif 09-08-2006 10:57 PM

Ya, he does look different in that.
Have you noticed the texts in that board? It says 'Club amco' or something.
That should explain the 'Club' text in the artwork.

And, the Leaf Links is now visible in the 3rd pic.

victim 09-08-2006 11:12 PM

Nice work Asif. Also it looks like its in Little Haiti in you look out the window. But im not sure. The gates just seem to look like the ones near the sewer place in Vice City.

Larry Novellino 09-08-2006 11:15 PM

I think that first pic, also Victim's signature, is a take from a cutscene. If so, wow.

This game looks to revolutionize the potential of the PSP.

victim 09-08-2006 11:20 PM

Yeah Id say its the same Cutscene as this footage seen in the trailer. Just at different times.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 05:20 AM.
