OPM UK May Edition

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 12:15 PM MDT | By Kodo
A 14-page cover story of GTA IV has been released in the OPM UK May Edition. It comes with some new information and screenshots. Here is a bulleted list by forums user Victim.
- Niko interacts with pedestrians e.g pushing them if they get in his way.
- Niko steals an improved Admiral, proving old cars return.
- Niko, in his mid-thirties, is on the run from a "dark past".
- The mafia take a role in the game (although not a main one).
- Pop ups are eliminated.
- Roosevelt Island appears in-game.
- "The game isn't trying to be photorealistic, but artificial intelligence needs to have a similar quality to the visuals or it's not going to hold together." Dan Houser
- If you pull a gun out everyone will scatter screaming
- One airport appears in the game. Helicopters have been confirmed by Dan as well.
- Cross developing for the PS3 and Xbox 360 has apparently been a challenge.
- Both systems have their pleasures and pains.
- The game will be online (previously only a multiplayer mode was confirmed)
- The character customization is not on par with San Andreas.
- You can see right into buildings now.
- The plot will contain "outrageous betrayals" and "jackknife reversals".
- Custom tracks isn't confirmed but it is "possible"
- Dan wants it to be a huge step up, but still similar to previous games.
- There giving us more to do in our [Niko's] leisure time.
- There will be "virtually" no returning characters. "Anyway, most of the characters we liked were dead" DH.
- The game is not as influenced by films as previous games have been.

Online? That would make this easily the best game of all time. Lack of multiplayer options is the only thing wrong with all the rest.

I doubt you'll walking into each of them, but hopefully we'll be able to see some moving living character models in their, with some reactions to what we do outside. and Maybe we can walk into a large amount of them- i guess if they took the trouble to design insides for each of the builidings, they could just open the doors.

Why does it seem so hard for people here to write in complete sentences? And spelling, anyone? It's almost impossible to decipher what the hell you are even talking about.

The thing i hated about gta games was the gun when you bought the gun and you wanted more ammo you would just have to buy the same gun that is retarted why can you just buy ammo seprite.

The boy is right. Ammo should be a good update in this game. Ammo should cost a little lesser and should be sold seperately. A good update with it should be on the AMMOUNT you want to buy... instead of buying over and over and over again. Just a suggestion. ;)
