Ive been thinking about this mission thing, someone earlier mentioned that RS should have more faith in their engine and not script the missions and I`m inclined to agree.

I dont have a problem with (most) of the current missions but they are the weakest point of the game in alot of respects, simply because it ruins that feeling that makes GTA great when u suddenly realise that something is scripted. Sure it can still be fun buts its like youve just lost a little bit of respect for it :lol:

I`d love to see the AI doing its thing and be able to come up with inventive solutions for missions. Sure the structure of some types of missions would have to change but it would create far more opertunities for great `random` events.

i'm going for the 800 or so on the achievements on this i think, there are certain ones i know i won't have the patience to do, like find all the pigeons and a couple of the multiplayer ones, i hate racing in gta so won't bother with that, I've got to 475 so far.

So what sort of impact do the decisions you make have later in the game? I've only had the chance to dip in and out of the game so have only been presented with a couple of these situations. For example, tell me (without too many spoilers if possible) what happens if

I choose not to execute Vlad?

I shot him but then turned off the console before the game saved as I wanted to think about it a bit more. Sad I know but I was one of those people who used to keep all their fingers in different pages of Fighting Fantasy books.

I think they are a bit like that anyway, on one of the very, very early missions I chased some punk down who ran upstairs.

It was really just a tutorial for the "disarming someone armed" thing so I duly grabbed his knife then shivved the shit out of his face. He fell to the ground, sliced up like the kipper he was.

The mission was only completed when I drove roman safely home (what no checkpoint OH NOESSS!).

On the way home I clipped a cop car and what with getting used the the handling and Romans cab being a shithouse to drive, we got caught and busted.

"Fuck that yo'!" I reloaded the mission. Same stuff happened though the second time round, realising it was pretty much a tutorial target and he wouldnt hurt me much I decided to practise the "Unarmed" melee combat with him some more.

Disarmed him, put the knife away and decided I'd fuck him over "big man style" - mano-a-mano.

I knocked him towards the window where a cinematic occurred of him falling to his frankly spectacular death in the river.

Yeah, I'm not commenting on the linearity of how this mission is completed - but I'm sure there's a shitload of nice, hidden stuff in there you will only discover with many repeated playthroughs.

Can someone who's finished it please answer my sexy questions?

I'm at 60%. I've just started a mission where I talk to the guy in a hospital bed and he sends me to the airport. I've just done a mission where I've chased blackmailers of the gay politician in a sports car half way across the city before they crashed and I killed them.

I'm at 27:30. Could I finish the game for 30 hours? It feels like Dead Rising with my timing. Been taking taxis everywhere, and started watching cutscenes, reloading, then skipping them to save time.

I've a feeling it's going to be close...

It's left to me again eh? :lol:

You have about 5-6 missions left. Depending on if you've done all the

kidnap

missions yet. Don't hold me exactly to that figure though, it may be one or two more.

You might make it. Oh, and if you haven't figured out yet, the

assassin

missions are completely optional. So don't do them if you're going for the 30 hours.

That cheat list isn't complete in regards to friends, there's 5 you can have, with 5 special abilities, but it only lists 4.

Some of the stuff there is wrong too, like 100% completion. 100% completion isn't all achievements, there's some achievements you don't need for 100%, and some things that you need to do for 100% that aren't achievements (like take all your friends to each of their preferred locations at least once).

Oh, and some stuff on there is in the bloody tutorial, like taking a cab and eating food.

And it spells armour as "Armer".

I give that list 3/10.

Ah yeah that would certainly make sense. Good work Biglime!

i still find it awesome tht a forum catchphrase is in the biggest game of all time :lol:

It would be even more awesome if "Shit on her tits" or "Have a wank" appeared.

[

I just did one and there were cars flying all over the place. It's a test of driving skill. If you could shoot the tires out at the start of every chase it'd be too easy.

I love the chases, particularly when you leave the vehicles and run after someone through a crowded street not wanting to spray bullets around indiscriminantly. I dont know if it's true or not but the vehicles seem to take far more damage in this game than in earlier ones before they blow up - seemed like only a few pistol shots were needed in GTA2 for example (and with all the gangs shooting at you at various times it often became a case of hopping out of cars on the brink of it). Here, the worst that has happened is the bonnet and door falling off.

In the subtitle options, they need "On", "Off" and "Jamaican characters only".

Niko seems to have learnt to understand LJ quicker than I have.

Best keep them on to catch all the Russian and Serbo-Croat dialogue.

Post Pigeon Progress Please

Where can you get health packs? It automatically started me into a mission upon answering my phone and I have no health left :lol:

Buy a hotdog! I always do that if I'm low on health mid-mission.

Eat some nuts or a hotdog. Plus I always try to make sure to have some armour on, as well.

GTAIII was lethal if you dared venture into Mafia territory after you'd killed Salvatore - You'd be driving along, minding your own business, and your car would just suddenly explode because some vengeful wiseguy had popped you with his shotgun.

Just tried throwing a grenade up a couple of floors, had the perfect aim but didn't think it might hit the streetlamp. It DINGED right off it and started heading back towards me. I didn't have time to run.

Very funny it was!

I took a cab with Dwayne yesterday and after we'd finished chatting he started to nod his head and clap along to Supa Star by Group Home, on The Classics. I changed the station to check if it was just one of his idle animations when he's sitting in a car, and he stopped. When I changed it back he started doing it again. :blink::lol:

It's true!

So I've gotten to the last mission, and failed it, haven't gone back to do it yet.

I chose to do the deal with Dimitri (because Roman made me feel sorry for him with his texts saying what a great honeymoon him and Mallorie could have if you go for the money). Was absolutely horrible when he's shot at the wedding. From the camera angle when the gun fired, and the direction in which it had been fired, I knew that someone had been shot, but when it was Roman...:lol:

What fucking relevance has that got to do with this discussion, exactly?

Alright babe, lets try and chill.

I ask because there was some fucking dick a little while ago that went mental posting constantly about how shit PES was in the PES thread. When someone had a counter argument they wouldn't listen and got all arsey with them telling them they were fucking idiots and that. I simply wanted to know if we were dealing with the same guy here.

That alright meh?

Addiction Level: Bummed In The Gob, just over 40hrs of gameplay and that's not even bothering with a lot of the missions, just general faffing about.

Regarding the mission where you have to take out the diamond dealers on top of the hotel, I got the fuck shot out of me the first time. Well now, cheaters never prosper, but I thought it's be hilarious to spawn an Annihilator and fly to the top of the hotel and gun the fuck out of them. So I did... The look on their faces when I popped up over the roof and opened up on them. Magic. I was also considering landing on a nearby building and sniping the fuckers, but couldn't be arsed/not very good at landing copter,(delete as applicable).

Tonight I'm off on a virtual hooker massacre. Pick 'em up, drive to a water front area and BLAMMO!! There's two serial killers in Liberty City....

Snow Storm was fucking easy. And I'm hardly amazing at games.

I'm often quite shit at games, but found it easy. Well, except on my first go it was pissing down with rain when I made my exit and I ended up getting killed by the police after a three minute chase, which really shouldn't have happened at that wanted level. Not to worry, I enjoyed getting to do it twice. I can't imagine why it has a reputation for being hard.

Just finnished the story .

I choose revenge and killed Dimitri. Ending felt a little bit boring as the final mission was a piece of piss and the fact that i didnt give a single shit about kate or about any the mobster lot who i killed, i thought the whole nicos past storyline should of been for the ending or something with UL Paper, the gangsters were just all annoying typical bastards.
