The Lost and Damned trailer, GTA IV wins GOTY at Spike TV VGA

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 09:17 PM MDT | By rappo + Slim Trashman

Only minutes ago, the world premiere of the trailer for GTA IV's Xbox 360 Downloadable Content, The Lost and Damned, was displayed at the Spike TV 2008 Video Game Awards. The action-packed trailer gave a few hints to what the storyline and new features might entail, here's our take on the video:
  • Major characters are: Billy, Jim, Jason, Clay, and Johnny Klebitz (main character)
  • The game will probably take place before or just directly after Niko arrives in Liberty City. Reasoning includes spoilers, select the following text to read it: Jason is Mikhail Faustin's daughter's boyfriend, who Niko kills in the mission No Love Lost, which occurs relatively early in the game.
  • New weapons include a pistol, shotgun with a round magazine (Striker), and sawed-off shotgun.
  • You'll have the ability to use more powerful weapons (such as the sawed-off shotgun) while riding a motorcycle.
We'll keep you updated with any new information we gather from the trailer.

Along with the trailer for GTA IV: The Lost & Damned, Grand Theft Auto IV took home three of the seven nominated awards from the show including "Game Of The Year", "Best Action Adventure Game", and "Best Performance By A Human Male" for Michael Hollick as Niko Bellic.

Yeah I noticed the sawed off being used too, pretty nice for up close blasting people. Another weapon we were introduced to was the M1911A1 but with better view than in one of the screenshots Rockstar released. Apparently the gun has an extended threaded chamber that a silencer can be attached to for those silent assassin types out there, sometimes I find being quiet quite necessary. Congratulations Rockstar for your most deserved GOTY award, please keep up the good work.

Looks good. Hopefully my copy of the game stops acting up by the time this is released.
