Basically what that means, if they acutally utilize Krav Maga, is plenty of headbutts, knees to nuts, elbows to throats and so on.
And obviously disarming/taking enemies weapons from them.[/QUOTE]

So, Niko will be using techniques that are short, quick, basic, and hurt like hell. Sounds nice.

Ya pretty much, and if he is a master then most of these attacks will probably kill. and he should be able to fight off more then one oppenent at once. graduating from begginer to advanced requires you to get jumped by your group and to fight your way out.

I also want to see if he does bat/baton disarmings. Its called the "Israeli Spear" and its one of the simplest yet most effective ways to disarm someone wielding a stick.

I'm probably reading far to into this and he won't be that skilled in Krav Maga.

Perhaps, but things you said like elbowing someone in the neck sound plausible for defensive moves.

I'm glad Niko's fighting style will consist of some possibly leathle moves. I hated how seemingly harmless combos would kill NPCs non realisticly.

The rules that they teach you in Krav Maga are
  • You're not going to care how much damage you're going to cause.

    Cause as much damage as possible and run.

    Do not try to prolong a fight. Do what needs to be done and escape.

that gives you an idea.

I don't want to seem like a fanboy, but many complain about the PS3's video quality being somewhat inferior to the 360's in terms of brightness and vibrancy. I'm not saying it was the case in the preview, but it may be a possibility. The PS3 has a setting to bump the color to "full scale" or something like that, don't quite remember but I know the setting exists and isn't too difficult to find. The difference is highly noticeable and sadly the "limited" setting is defaulted. Hope that clears some stuff up, and if you haven't changed the setting on your PS3, now would be a good time

Its gun/knife disarming and basic attack/defend.
If I ever get around to it I'll post some videos for gun/knife disarming.
I'm eager to see how this plays out in the game.

Heres a video on youtube of it. This fighting style looks intense to say the least. lol

I'd assume the people showing it off at Rockstar would know that already, obviously they would try to make the game look as good as possible.

No idea what euphoria/rage would require for it, I hope it doesn't ask for a quad-core processor. :p

These two screenshots have appeared on IGN. These aren't new anyway, in fact digital version of two screenshots seen in some magazines few days ago.


(cinematic slow-mo camera?)

Update

GamePro link is added in the first post and it contains a new screenshot never seen before!



Possibly the 'Honkers' strip club.

Unfortunately it's the biggest available picture, as of now.
