Slightly new info from July 07 EGM?
Got my issue today and I read through it to find new info.
There isn't anything new at all, and they've already covered the demo and trailer footage, so EGM made an interesting editorial where they compared GTAIV shots to actual NYC shots. Thing is, they hired a photographer to make shots that have the same
camera angles that are present in the GTAIV screenshots to have the best results. It's pretty interesting to say the least, to see how much detail R* has put into the game. I think
I found one new piece, but I'll just copy the entire paragraph. In this section they are using this image as a comparison. It's a startling comparison if you've seen the feature, because the GTAIV version looks almost just like the NYC version.
Under the Tracks
If you've been following our GTA4 coverage (both in EGM and on 1up.com), you know we love the little touches. Like when Niko breaks a car window with his elbow in order to unlock it. Or the way he takes a big step up and shifts his weight when he approaches a curb while walking. Or pedestrians taking a drag, chatting on a pay phone, or just leaning against a wall. In these particular shots, LC doesn't feature as many storefronts as this packed NYC strip, yet it has just as much going on: folks minding their own business, faded bills on the foreground pillar, trash on the sidewalk. You'd better believe we'd love to see more shops along the street....all the better to rob and escape out the back, something Rockstar tells us is indeed possible.
The ability to rob a store and escape through the back? What do they mean, a back door in the store or running out of the front and then behind the store in an alley or something? It would be nice to have some clarification because I do not recall any other source saying this.
