Game Informer: August 2004

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 06:07 PM MDT | By Neil
The August 2004 issue of Game Informer will hit newsstands across the US on July 23rd, but we've managed to find out all the information that's contained within, pertaining to San Andreas.
-- The camera can be controlled while walking or running using the right stick on the controller.
-- The main feature of the targetting system from Vice City; locking on, has been retained, but this time you can strafe left and right while you are aiming.

The magazine also contains three screenshots which have not been seen elsewhere.
The first screenshot shows a 'Vinewood' sign, in true Hollywood style. A television/radio/telephone mast is also seen atop the same hill. The second screenshot depicts Carl Johnson with a pump action shotgun, in a suburban environment. Two cars also appear in the screenshot, with one looking extremely similar to the Vice City Esperanto and the front of what looks like a Voodoo. Damage modelling appears to have received no improvement so far, however both cars have Xbox-esque 3D wheels. The final new screenshot gives us our first real insight into what the police car will look like. The overall colour appears to be black, with the trunk being raised higher than the Vice City cop car.

For legal reasons, these screenshots cannot be posted on our server.
Thanks to 'fourengland' for providing the basis of this information.

Yeah, I think its gonna get a bit more like Driv3r and TrueCrime and stuff now.
Hopefully, it will keeps its authentic feel.

Also, telling us about those pictures is such a tease! Especially for those that cannot buy GameInformer in their country -- including me!

#2, they won't. Every legal concern has been met in this case.

In otherwords, GTAGaming covered their arse :)

Manhunt controlling, hopefully it might match True Crime in size but I highly doubt it, that game was huge

"if the targetting is like manhunt u should beable to shot the brains out"

Not really. The TARGETING is like Manhunt. Not the gameplay.

The Manual Aim for all weapons is STILL in right? Cause they only mention Strafing with auto aim...which kinda worries me...

you're pretty much doing the samething as they are so it's like smacking yourself: On topic; some of those cars like the esperanto have been in all three games and are starting to get boring to me

looks like the lights on the police car have been improved. they look more like a bar to me than the separate lights of 3 and vice city. the cop car reminds me of an old chevy caprice too

#22, your post is completely senseless. Well I lied. It made a bit of sense. But still not the part where I did what the others did.

*throws hat in the air*
On topic, I must say I cant see completely how this is too different from thing being printed in a forum. Just that this is frontpage, and more people will see it, and it is posted by admins of the site.
