Who is that special someone?
 
I'd like to make this a poll, but I don't know how.

I want this thread to be exclusive discussion and disection over all the info we have thus far, so we can pool all of our theories together. This thread will not debate what will be the content in the trailer, this thread is exclusively for finding out who the special someone is.

First off, I must say that we had the return of Deepthroat at the gtaforums. Those of you who don't know who Deepthroat is, he is a poster at gtaforums who leaked information via subtle clues in various short story posts before the first trailer debuted. He revealed many things: 1. There will be characters who are East European/Russian, 2. The setting is in New York City/Liberty City, 3. The main character is on the run from some people. It turns out all 3 of these facts were true.

Now, funnily enough on Sunday, the day before the new tralier was to be announced, deepthroat popped up AGAIN and said that we should be looking forward to something special. It's obvious, as of now, that deepthroat has R* contacts.

Now, in this thread deepthroat reveals something for us:

It's an interesting thought, the possibilities are endless really.

When I was a Sniper attached to BRF, 3 Commando Brigade, RM I had a number two called Mike. He always had my back, he'd act as a spotter, assist in my shot calculations, watch my fall of shot, suggest corrections and adjustments and then plot our escape routes and contingencies. He was pretty special. I doubt I'll ever find a number two like him again. I could trust that guy with my life.

I digress, lets play the waiting game.

Cheers,

Scotty.
Many of us are now dissecting deepthroat's post. When I read it, I personally think of a cop. And then I think back to the image that came out along with the new trailer announcement. Someone at gtaforums agrees and confirms my suspicions. Niko isn't being shown a badge, he's being HANDED a badge. This makes me curious. Perhaps Niko is the one who's "looking for someone special", his partner, as deepthroat surmised. Maybe this partner is Roman. I don't know who it is, but I think that one thing is clear from that image: Niko looks like he's being handed a badge. That cop doesn't look like he's trying to bring Niko down or anything, other wise he'd be have his hand erect. The cop looks relaxed and has the badge in his hand as if he's going to hand it to someone.

What's going on? Who's this special someone? The clues may be in deepthroat's post.

Tell me the question and choices, I'll add them to the poll.

Himuro 06-13-2007 01:36 PM

- Niko
- Roman
- Elizabita (is that how you spell her name?)
- Someone else
- The Cop

Poll added.
Just read through your post, in the mean time. It's really an interesting theory that the badge being handed over to Niko. Also, the deepthroat guy caught my attention back in March. He's surely someone behind the curtains, heard that he always uses proxy, so no one can trace him. :p

Edit: Just found out, he came online on this Sunday after long disappearance, just hours before the trailer announcement! Gotta admit, he does seem to have R* connection.

I'm guessing that special someone is probably Niko.

Slim Trashman 06-13-2007 01:53 PM

deepthroat is at it again? I love this guy :)

Not sure if he is handing him the badge since he has to lean down to show it through the window:

Now if he were standing upright I could see how his hand would be erect. But since he is leaning I tend to doubt he is handing it to him.

Interesting theory, though.

Himuro 06-13-2007 02:16 PM

Maybe he's talking to Nico? Maybe he doesn't trust Nico? After all, he does have a criminal background.

I stick by my Roman story. Here it is:

Niko walks into Roman's premises but noone is to be seen.

He looks around at the tattered walls and out of the shadows we see a figure coming.

"Looking for that special someone?"

"Roman!"

Though the more I say this the less I think it will happen :P Anyway, Rockstar won't dissapoint with this. I really, really can't wait to see another big load of information on our screens!

A real cop would never present a badge in that way unless it was being handed over to the one he is with:)

just ask!!!(particuliarly a NYPD cop)

Who's to say that Niko doesn't have an old friend that left to Liberty City before him, other than Roman as Roman will likely be the thorn in Niko's side (similar to Lance in VCS), perhaps Niko's old friend may be an ex-crime partner of Niko's.

Yeah exactly! If the line ("Looking for that someone special") is coming out from Niko, according to Deepthroat's theory, there should be someone as intimate to Niko, other than Roman, who used to be his crime partner in his younger age.
Or, if it is someone else saying the line, then it should be Niko that he is looking for.

FG 06-14-2007 04:44 AM

I'm betting it's somone Niko know's(maybe a lady cop)the badge my be what him an the guy cop need to get to that * Speceil Someone*...tbh who know's for sure.

BigMike 06-14-2007 01:15 PM

LM i like your idea rep+

I believe the title has a dual meaning...Niko is looking for someone...so are we as viewers...Usually the second trailer reveals the main character in action...and Thats what we are looking for...and I think its obvious that Niko is looking for Roman..his current american contact...so maybe Roman is seen in action as well

Fry 06-14-2007 10:59 PM

I dont think the cop is passing him the badge, It looks like he is just showing it to him. Because look how he is holding the bdge (thats not how you pass it to someone), He is definately displaying the actual badge and not just passing it over as thought.

I think that special someone may have something to do with co op or displaying a new character wich will be a girlfriend wich is part of the actual story line like the one in Vice City Stories.
