Some things I observed (along with some theories I made) from the Kikizo preview:

*There's a button solely used for calling cabs. Which means you'll probably need to do so alot of the time, most likely because stealing a car won't be as convenient due to the revamped wanted system. This will also mean you'll be spending your cash more, thus why it'll be harder to get rich in IV than in past GTA games (sticking to the "rags to less-shitty rags" theme).

*When targeting an enemy/victim, the health-indicating markers will be either green or red, corresponding to the person's hostility. Kinda reminds me of the payout meter that filled up when you exploited shopkeepers in the godfather game.

*There's only two main buttons for fighting, but the manner and order in which you press them, along with your distance and position relative to your opponent (not to mention environmental objects between the two of you), yields for many different attacks. Kind of like the fighting system in Bully/The Warriors.

*The sensitivity of the analog stick is gonna change if you're in an area where you can easily fall. In other words, the game takes notice of the situation you're in, and tries to help out. But the article also says, that this won't limit you from doing what you want to do, if you want to jump off that high ledge, go ahead.

*When your car flips onto it's left side, Niko will climb out of the "top" side by the passenger seat. This (maybe) means no more re-appearing outside of the car and/or having to watch the same unrealistic "crawl-out-from-under the vehicle" animation.

* Rockstar have confirmed that cars are not customisable and you can't store stuff inside them, either. Double ouch.

* Apparently, the dialogue between Niko and Jacob is hilarious, seeing as English is not their native language, but it's the only way they can communicate with eachother, and they both have thick accents.

Niko is a master at Krav Maga, a fighting style used by Israeli Special Forces.
This made me happy, because I know Krav Maga and that shit will save your life.
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.
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.

So he knows some Israeli Military martial art? I remember someone mentioning that they thought he might be middle eastern cause he looks it a bit, and kind of sounds like it, but now he fights like them?

No car customization? That's a bummer. It was probably one of my favorite features. Thanks to car customization you could always have a car different from everyone else. I actualy hoped other NPCs would have random cumstomizations like rims and cool paint jobs. I'm really gonna miss this feature.

I think it's been confirmed that Niko's Eastern European. He might have learnt it in the army there I suppose.

Krav Maga is taught to the whole world because its such a simple form of self defense, its not a martial art its just pure self defense. And it was invented by Imi Lichtenfield in the Czech Republic and Hungary in the 1930s, they just got their facts wrong and made it sound like it was soley the IDFs self defense course.
Every army in the world uses it or some form of it.

I wonder(if you were able to get close enough), if you can disarm enemies.

I found it interesting (in the IGN preview )the guy playing said he saw Little Jacob get "iced" but yet he was still able to go about the mission until Niko was killed.

so maybe when your partners get killed this time the mission isnt automatically "Failed"

nm: I read it wrong
