i don't know, ya can't really say that R* wouldn't do any of that because it's a completly new game and all, but that stuff does sound all MGS-y on us. i do like the idea of getting jumped and robbed while being in bad parts of town, but that plot twist er whatever is lame.

I'm really hoping that most of what he is stating does not become a reality any time soon.

Spoilers Lie Ahead!



Had a good conversation about stuff other than the game, got to shoot in a few more Game related questions, and got some pretty interesting info to boot!

I asked about the Weather System/Cycle Changes.

Answer :

The gist of it is, that most people OVERestimate the power of the current " next gen " consoles.

Weathers going to continue to be a scripted event, Season Cycles are not possible on a realistic level, and certainly not practical for a number of reasons, for one, they would have to devote an entire crew to change every structure/tree/street texture already completed and have to dedicate a pretty steep amount of already critical disc space for JUST the graphical side of the season cycles alone.
That doesnt include the programming/coding that will go into it.

Basically, our " next gen " consoles simply arent prepared to seamlessly stream snow UNTOP of Ground UNTOP of Dead Body etc..etc..

People think because they were given the RAW numbers for what these babies can do, that these consoles are able to have 10000s Individual peds/snow/hurricanes/destructable areas/construction crews/cars/weapons/projectiles from weapons/liter/completely independent minor graphical properties ( I.E Trash Cans ) ETC.


Euphoria IS being used for this game, but not in the way you saw in the tech demos.

Euphoria is basically a physics engine that can mimic the motor nervous system on its own, we saw in the Force Unleashed tech demo that characters hung on to boards/edges to not die.

That was pretty cool, but its not going to be in this game.

The way Euphorias going to be used is to give the characters ( Roman/Enemies/NPCS ) a REALISTIC walking pattern thats UNIQUE to that Character.

For instance, not every womans going to walk the same, not every mans going to walk the same, their weight/height/Goods they are carrying will be taken into account for EVERY character, and their walking pattern will be determined by those factors.

Once again, Im stressed that Ped A.I./Behavior/Physics Is far above and beyond anything you have ever seen.


Some bad news now :

We all know that Planes arent in, thats been confirmed by a source that some of you dudes believe in, but what you DONT know is, that the number of cars in the game is SEVERELY limited.

A rough estimate number I received was about 25.

No word on customization, to be honest, I didnt ask.

Well, thats it dudesters, Il hopefully hit you guys with more info either Wednsday, or Next Saturday.

Later,

Jadex9.

Okay.. Now I'm really hoping this guy is a crazy loon. Oh man..please be some crazy nut!

25cars.. no way man.. Rockstar would never do something like that... Would they? Compared to San Andreas which had 100cars+ 10bikes+ 5helictopers+ 10planes+. I dont think they would reduce the amount of variety that much.. Well, i hope not.

All of this is a let-down. Sacrificing better graphics and a next-gen interface for less interactivity?

WOW! Yea im convinced this guys got some screws loose even believing his source. This was some really generic info compared to last time and is speaking on the euphoria like he works for R*.Not to mention he only tawks about what R* already revealed in the GI article about Euphoria and how Nikko would walk.I know thats not all R* is using that for. So i guess R* plans on having the leaves yellow all year round in the game in some parts but will have green in others!?!?!? dont make no sense. period. Plus 25 cars! we've already seen like 15 in counting! i could go on for ever...

How disappointed I would be with only 25 cars. But this guys really seems to know what he's talking about. So there we have it, folks -- 25 cars in a GTA game...

OR this guy is completely bullshitting which I think is more possible.

first of all i don't believe this guy at all, all of the stuff he is saying could easily be made up, and i don't understand why they wouldn't have weather patterns in GTA IV they did it in bully, it wouldn't be that hard.

@ monika

Don't sweat it this guy"s bating average at best is low. We have had this kinda thing in the GTA game"s. You could do as well; he's guessing, an most of his stuff is dead wrong. Like usual

EDIT : see what I mean ? Alex is got an idea about weather, an he's probably right; with a bettter bating average, aswell.

I mean, look at GTA IV. It's not the BEEESST looking game. And why would they have to limit it ? That doesn't make any sense at ALL. Look at saints row, or crackdown. There's no logical explanation that the guy is right.

Like I said, complete BS.

I jus took a look at the trailer and skimmed the pics in the GI article and counted well over 22 different cars not to mention the big moving truc's on the bridge at the end of th trailer.And this is only the first trailer! so there must be a slew of super sports cars we have not seen with a couple more drop tops. so this piece is very false unless most of these cars wont make it to final production which i doubt seriously.
