Have I forgotten how GTAIV looked or is this looking worse tha GTAIV? That first screenshot looks like a PS2-version.

Yeah they look bad but remember most of the screenshot released prior to GTAIV were kind of crappy as well...

"New weapons and vehicles" Cool. I can't wait to see what they have.

Should be a lot of fun but it'll all depend on how good the missions are and what the price is before I decide if I'll buy it.

I really enjoyed GTA IV but thought some of the missions were a little stale. Although I absolutely loved the excellent physics and driving engine. Driving in GTA IV felt better than in most racing games these days, which is sad.

Not that i'd see why you'd want more of this crap, but good for those who likes it i guess. And yes, GTA4 does look like that.

This is going to have to be something pretty spectacular to make me put down Saints Row 2 for this. New vehicles and weapons sounds pretty nice though..

Sons Of Anarchy + GTA?

Yes f**king please.
Commented on 2008-11-20 20:56:38
Not all that impressed.
Most likley the vehicles and weapons will be varients of those already included in the game.
Ideally I would have liked to see new areas to explore but there we go.

Hmm, I was hoping another city. I be disappointed if they don't add any other location(s). It shouldn't take so frikking long to add few few scripted events with *go here, get mission, go there and kill someone, drive back* missions since all animations etc are already there. Unless Rock Star has 2 people working on this :P

More than 10 new vehicles and 10 new weapons, and i'll buy it. Otherwise i wont, not interested in the story anymore tbh..

Basically, this is just a simple taster or the tip of the iceberg of what is going into this DLC. Remember, Rockstar are solely focusing on one console for this, and it's taking them well over a year to come up with new shit, so if this turns out to be anything other than a complete leveler of what GTA 4 SHOULD have been, then I'll be extremely surprised. Not enough was made of the Euphoria tech in GTA 4. You couldn't randomly grab onto anything you wanted, like trucks, helicopters, car hoods and trunks etc etc, and hang on for the ride, which I though you'd be able to do. Imagine having the FEDS up your ass with no car in sight apart from the one coming down the road, so you run and jump onto the roof and hang on for dear life to get away, or even taking a leap from a building onto that pesky police chopper and watch it fly about trying to shake you off. I also would have loved to have been able to grab peds and throw them about the place, like in front of police cars, trains, or off tall buildings. Sadistic, aye, but hours of fun to be had there. It's little things like that which would have made GTA 4 less stale and far more fun and entertaining at least. I expect R* to pack this out with such detail for fun and keep the same city, albeit with some new parts. That would do me.

the impression i get is rockstar staff have worked so hard on gta4 they feel they deserve a break so they are just taking there time with this episode. little bit of work here little bit of work there. cant say i blame them

looks like all the work theyve done so far is copy and paste a biker lots of times and put them on the bridge.

EDIT. btw dingleberry. i dont know which gta4 you were playing but i could definatly hang off trucks. i was amazed when it happend. i managed to get onto the roof of a truck but i didnt realise it was being driven, and when the lights changed the truck set off and the force sent niko off and he grabs onto the side of it to stop himself falling, legs flinging in the air. i was quite impressed.

Just add jet packs, parachutes, bungee cords and trebuchets and I'll be a happy man.

Yeah, but that's just random. Ask anyone who has tried this, and most will tell you that it's not possible to do in a simple, intuitive manner as it should. You should be able to do it whenever, and wherever you like and have it as an actual function on your controller instead of something that just happens as by chance.

Take their time or not, i'm very confident it will be a good episode. Rockstar has the talent in house to do it , and they will :) Looking forward to it! BUt i'm still hoping for zombie content though...
Commented on 2008-11-21 07:33:14
there is one thing this add on content NEEDS for me to buy it. and thats a story of comparably quality and depth as the main game. i dont expect it to be as long, but i at least want to end up with a fleshed out, well developed character like niko and the characters around him. otherwise it's just gonna just feel like additional missions with nothing to connect them (something that dissapointed me about the "still alive" content for portal) who wants missions if there is no narrative to keep everything flowing and interesting.

Looks like you get to lead a biker gang, awesome!

After I installed Forza2 and GoW2 on the harddrive of my Xbox 360 I have 306MB left.. Will this fit? :P

I really need to get a bigger harddrive, 20GB (13GB effectivly) doesn't cut it anymore now you can install games.. :\

I am absolutely not kidding when I say these look like shots from the PS3 version. Softer and warmer colors, 360 is sharper and has a higher contrast. Very weird.

Either way I am done with this game, played it non-stop at first and I really don't crave more, don't have a 360 anyways.

Curious how many will get it, there is a lot of game there already, most haven't even gotten to 70% I'd bet.

You forgot to mention 20% higher resolution, 20% higher frame rate and 2xaa.
