Xbox World 360: Ballad of Gay Tony preview

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 08:45 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
The latest issue of Xbox World 360 magazine went on sale today in the UK and features an 8-page preview on GTA: The Ballad Of Gay Tony. An outline of some new details are displayed below:
  • The episode will contain about 20 missions, just as The Lost and Damned did

  • The HUD is again modified to fit the feel of the game--"Parma Violet-style pink/purple"

  • Missions are scored out of 100%, dependent on your performance. All missions can be re-played at any time to improve your scrore.

  • 3 nightclubs are accessible--Bahama Mamas, Hercules and Maisonette 9

  • The golf course behind Algonquin's Memory Lanes bowling alley is now open, where a new golfing minigame is available to play.

  • New websites have been added to the in-game internet

  • New vehicle: "Super Drop Diamond"--based on a Bentley Continental convertible

  • New random character mission takes Luis on a race to disarm a car bomb, armed by one of his "mental ex-girlfriends"

  • Four new missions previewed: "Dropping In..." , "For The Man Who Has Everything" , "Going Deep" and "Sexy Time".

The preview also featured four new screenshots, one of which proves the Maisonette 9 nightclub to be a near-exact replica of NYC nightclub Bungalow 8.

So far, this DLC looks like it will have much more than the last one.

Maybe I'll get it one day when it's at $10 or something.

Looks good now.

About the scoring thing. I think it's probably going to rate your performance on a mission, ie: How many side tasks/side mission tasks, enemies killed, deviation from the plan or thing like that.

A full 100% score means you did the mission flawlessly.

All i care about is if the skydiving is just gonna be a stupid minigame or actually part of the game like in san andreas. They probably wont tell us because if its a minigame im gonna pass on this DLC...
