San Andreas - Names and Slogans Galore!

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 03:35 PM MDT | By Neil
Just a small update this time. We've managed to find out a few minor tidbits that sprung from this weekend's site update over at the official San Andreas site.


Firstly, and probably most interestingly, is the Kincaid Bridge, shown above in a tiny screenshot, which is all Rockstar have revealed of it so far. The real version is a fantastic feat of engineering, named the Forth Rail Bridge, which spans the River Forth, between Edinburgh and Fife, in Scotland, close to Rockstar North's offices. Its purpose? Rail travel! Hop on one of San Fierro's dusty trains and take it right across into the unknown that is the North East of the San Andreas gameplay area, which includes Las Venturas and the wide open desert which we know nothing about).

Secondly, one of San Fierro's hippy district's posters shows the catchphrase Brown Streak Railroad will be using to get people on their trains and across the Kincaid Bridge. "Go For The Brown" is slipped out in one of the videos tucked in the official site. This screenshot shows the billboard well.

Finally, we've got a very revealing screenshot also from the Camper video on the official site. In San Andreas, Juank Air will be "Flying with the personal touch". (You thought the name was dirty!)

Spotted anything else in the movies you think we should know about? Tell us about it!

I live right beside that bridge, which is why I'm so interested in its development!

The Kincaid Bridge is also in this screenshot: http://www.gtagaming.com/images/sanandreas/screenshots/sa5.jpg behind the Garden Bridge, which the main bridge going out of Easter Basin.

The Gant Bridge is the big one to the north that we see in the beginning of the official trailer. ;)

Hey, check this out.

On the map you can clearly see where the Garden Bridge is, but you don't see the Kincaid Railway Bridge next to it where it should be. What's up with that?

#13, the more worrying thing is there seems to be no bridges going over from Los Santos/Red Country to Las Venturas. That means you may have to drive all the way round, but hey i love driving!

Wow, Generation_Terr, I didn't notice that. Good job!

That does raise some concerns, but near Easter Basin you can see something that says Easter Tunnel. That probably means there is a subway system in the game like in GTA3, so maybe you'll be able to get to Las Venturas from Los Santos that way.

Yeah, heh... I said awhile ago that if there were trains in SA that they'd probably go through/around the entire state and I was right, heh... Not just this pic but Chris Stead confirmed that the train system went through the countryside. Oh yeah and there's the train station in San Fierro, heh.

Heh, now hopefully there's a bascule drawbridge some where... Then I'll know that Rockstar did see at least one of my post from before or slightly after GTA:VC's release and my ranting about trains and drawbridges.

I've seen bridges like that before, it should be fun playing chicken with trains while on it, mwhaha.

Ugh, I need sleep!

The best thing about R* is that it's probably the best company out there that actually care for details.

Seems to be a bridge from Hanky Panky point as someone stated, but even if it isn't options are plenty. Your free to do anything. Hijack a plane, boat or even swim lol!!

This desert that's been metioned has to be one the part not yet revealed, and makes sence since it's close to "Vegas" which is surrounded by desert. The desert and it's possibilities for a different kind of gameplay and/or mini games has been kept quiet. Could be in for a few surprises here. Something tells me it's not as boring as one could think.

rumour control people, this will be confirmed int he next few days, the desert areas has many property development areas, for building your own casino, hotel, garage, pay and spray, hideout or a tuner shop!! you can also build a dojo and teach people your own combination of attacks whilst earning money at this! you heard it here first!

WOW! I actually made a guess about this being based on the Forth Rail Bridge and it certainly looks like I was right.
