Computer & Video Games - "Death in the Country"

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 10:09 AM MDT | By Neil
Chris Robins has informed us that popular gaming site ComputerandVideoGames.com have presented their version of the weekend's countryside articles from IGN/Gamespot, and included is a tiny amount of new information about the shovel's possible uses:
The garden shovel, for example, not only allows you to dig shallow graves (Rockstar never disclosed whether this allows you to bury folk), but it also enables you to enjoy the satisfying 'klunk' or a shovel connecting with somebody's bonce.
Apparently, each melee weapon - and there are a few other new additions too - features a number of attacks, and as a first, CJ can now both lock onto opponents and block incoming blows. Very handy.

Read the full article and find out all about the countryside!

IT would be amazing if you could kill someone, put them in the trunk of your car and then take them out into the desert and bury them!!!! That would be amazing!!! OR bury them alive!!!!!!!!

Lol, you receive an old treasure map in one of the missions, or you find one and you go to that spot and find a nice amount of money :)

Wow. Well, I guess that confirms ragdoll. Along with the fact that you can now drag bodies. Maybe it'll get to the level where you can take people's clothes too. That's a pretty big discovery.

I wonder if this means that bodies simply won't fade away after a few seconds, leaving nothing but some blood stains and a chalk outline that eventually fades as well....if so, then damn. Is there even enough graphical power and whatnot left to handle that after everything else they've squeezed out of it?

Like in Hitman, the bodies do disappear, but after a pretty long time. But there obviously aren't as many people in any level of Hitman as there are in GTA, so to save memory, R* might still make the bodies disappear quickly. But it IS a dual-layered DVD, so who knows...

Imagine driving a flaming car into the forest, jumping out at the last second and watching it blow up into some hick's trailer and starting a forest fire... What would Smokey the bear say?!?!?!
