Episodes from Liberty City now on PC and PS3

Episodes from Liberty City now on PC and PS3

This week, PS3 and PC owners will finally be able to discover the two Episodes from Liberty City that were previously released on Xbox 360 as exclusive content for Grand Theft Auto IV. A good reason to come back to Rockstar's version of New York City, even though today some of the gameplay mechanics of the game like the shooting have grown a bit old. It is still a very good deal since the two episodes are interesting enough to be worth your while. It will also keep you busy while waiting for the next big Rockstar game at the end of May.

Both and the situation is exactly like that of the 360. Stand alone doesn't require GTAIV, while the DLC does.

The PC version of GTA IV was abysmal performance wise. It's like Rockstar didn't even bother to try and port it over efficiently. I hope they have made some performance increases with this installment.

That's a big if. I personally think it will be a quick cash in and will still have the performance issues.

The Lost and Damned was pretty damn freaking weak. The ballad of gay tony is a much better game from top to bottom, and probably even performance wise. Anyways, the shooting feels really bad on both regardless, I'm glad there's less of that in the ballad of gay tony--which I must be pretty close to finish.

That was my biggest problem with GTAIV. Shooting is bad. Most of the open world games this gen are way better in this aspect -SR2, RFG, JC2...
Please Rockstar, fix this s... in Red Dead Redemption. :(

Late release of these expansions, but is better than never. :)

I, for some reason, hated GTAIV. Actually nvm, I KNOW which are the reasons.
For one, the combat was obtuse as fuck, the performance and presentation were such an gut-punching letdown after all those super touched up trailers that playing it was almost nauseating to me (PS3 version BTW, which is even more infuriating considering this franchise was born on a PS console).
And the plot just didn't bring it home at all. Maybe I haven't been to NYC to appreciate all the subtleties but that game without cheatcodes isn't even worth a rental.

Anyway, I didn't have any problem with the shooting what-so-ever, as long as you weren't trying to drive at the same time. The controls were so much improved over the earlier entries in the series. I thought the story was intriguing too. The only thing missing was more random stuff to do and I hated keeping up my relationships. There were plenty of great things about the technology as well. The use of Euphoria more than made up for the "subHD"...

Gotta agree.. GTA4's shooting is abit stiff, with the cover system fiddly. SR2's gun play would of been better..if the framerate wasnt so poor.. so swings and roundabouts.

Red dead's supposed to feel better and more fluid by all acounts

Franchise was born on the PC actually if I'm not mistaken. Top down view GTA ftw.
