2009 The Lost and Damned Trip Report
Grand Theft Auto IV - Community News | @ 12:52 AM MDT | By Kodo + Zidane
Last week, Zidane and myself were invited by Rockstar for an exclusive Lost and Damned event at Don Hill's in New York City. The event took place on Feb 10 and Feb 11. Skipping all the travel and hotel stuff, the Lost and Damned event went something like this..
A large black van waits outside the hotel to carry all the GTA webmasters over to Don Hill's. Upon arrival, we are greeted at the door by R* who says they aren't done setting up inside. There's some serious security, too, so the 10 of us wait in a circle on the sidewalk. We have some mindless chatter outside while we eagerly await the real deal happening inside.
Tweny minutes pass before R* lets us inside. Walking through the dark entryway, we walk into a biker themed bar with tattoo decorations on the wall and two motorcycles on the stage. The Lost and Damned trailers are playing on HDTVs high above the bar along side Rockstar and Xbox projections on the wall. Of course you can't miss about 10 gaming station set up, each with chairs, an Xbox 360, and Lost and Damned playing on the giant TV. Rockstar says, "What are you looking around for? Start playing!"
We take our seats and pickup the controls, jumping right into the beginning of story mode. The first mission has Johnny picking up the club's new president, who is fresh out of jail, and riding him back to the clubhouse. Rockstar knows you are familiar with the game by now, so there aren't hours of tutorial missions. Nope, now you start right into the fray and it's great. The next mission has you riding with your gang to a firefight against 20 other bikers of a rival game. There is a new feature while in transit to mission locations. If you ride in formation behind the biker president, a "Lost" logo appears on the street and gives you health for staying with it. We played several other missions that involved stealing motorcycles, killing some feds, or burning a club and stealing heroin from it.
We couldn't take any pictures of the game,
enjoy the skyline.
The event ended with Rockstar and Microsoft handing out Xbox Elites with custom Lost and Damned artwork to the attendees. We'll get a picture up soon. Overall we are very impressed with the quality of Lost and Damned and the new perspective it provides. New missions, storyline, guns, music, multiplayer games, vehicles, and modified bike physics are all great things. Rockstar did a tremendous job with the new content and we are so grateful for the opportunity to play it.
