Nope, parachuting is actually a big deal to a lot of people.

That's just weird.

Of course I could see where it would be handy in online play whenever you throw yourself off the top of a skyscraper or something - no more waiting to respawn once you reach the end of your descent.


On a related topic, I wonder if you open your 'chute too soon after jumping out of a helicopter, if your 'chute gets sucked up into the props and your character gets disemboweled or beheaded or something. Now that would be cool.

That's because it is not a trailer. It is a short profile vignette of Tony Prince (aka Gay Tony). Rockstar did a lot of these with both GTA IV and TLAD (you can still find them all on the GTA IV website), to get gamers familiar with the principal characters in both games, and they seem to be continuing the trend with TBOGT. This is by no means to be considered an actual "trailer" for the game. Matter of fact, considering TBOGT is coming out at the end of the next month, we will be very lucky to get another trailer for it. They may do a launch trailer, but we will not know for sure until much closer to the game's release. In the meantime, expect them to update their website every couple of weeks with a new character vignette, until right before the game ships.

Xbox World 360 Preview
Posted by adamcs at 09:27. Category: Ballad of Gay Tony

The latest issue of Xbox World 360 Magazine - which went on sale today in the UK - contains an eight-page preview of The Ballad of Gay Tony. Here's a rundown on some of the new stuff mentioned:
Xbox World 360 Magazine
Xbox World 360 is on sale now in the UK.

* The HUD (Heads-Up-Display) is a "Parma Violet-style pink/purple".
* The Ballad of Gay Tony should feature around 20 missions (roughly the same as The Lost and Damned).
* Missions get scored out of 100% depending on your style and efficiency. You can re-play missions at any time in order to improve your scores.
* Three nightclubs are accessible - Bahama Mamas, Hercules and Maisonette 9. Luis is tasked with managing Hercules and Maisonette 9 - the two clubs which belong to Gay Tony. Hercules was off-limits during this preview.
* The golf course in Algonquin behind Memory Lanes is open for business! A golfing minigame is available.
* New websites have been added to the in-game internet.
* A new car based on a Bentley continental Convertible is called the Super Drop Diamond.
* One of the new random character missions involves "a mental ex-girlfriend of Luis' who places a bomb in his car, leading to a race to disarm it."
* Four missions were previewed during the demo, two of which we heard about in previous previews:
o "Dropping In..." - Tony orders Luis to team up with Bulgarin's henchman, Timur. Bulgarin wishes to acquire The Rampage, Liberty City's ice hockey team, and Luis must storm the penthouse office and get the owner to sign his business over to Bulgarin. Luis parachutes onto the roof and heads down a maintenance stairwell before being confronted by security. At this point, alarms are blaring and the sprinkler systems go off. Luis eliminates his target by shooting him through a window, and then escapes through the window with the parachute still on his back. He lands on a moving truck, which conveniently has a mattress on its trailer. If Luis had missed the truck, he would have had to face another army of security men.
o "For the Man Who Has Everything" - This mission is done for Yusuf Amir, a billionaire property developer. Yusuf is played by Omid Djalili, as many people speculated after hearing his voice during the trailer. Yusuf wants to ship a railway carriage back to the Middle East as a gift. The first objective is to jump onto a train from the nearest overpass, which is done by tapping X at the right moment (the jump itself is automated). Luis must make his way to the front of the train, as cops shoot down at him from helicopters. Once Luis has disconnected the front carriage, Yusuf lifts the carriage from the tracks using a Skyhook chopper.
o "Going Deep" - This mission involves silencing detectives who have evidence on Bulgarin and Timur which could see them go to jail. The plan is to rig their vehicle with a satchel bomb in an underground car park, but the cops are already onto them. Once the attackers are dead, the detectives chase Luis and Timur.
o "Sexy Time" - Yusuf wants to acquire an attack chopper called the Buzzard. It belongs to a group of arms dealers, and is situated on a yacht. Luis has to sneak on board without security seeing him and then steal the chopper. As Luis makes his way back to Yusuf's pad, Yusuf calls and orders him to go back and destroy the yacht. Some of the gangsters escape on speedboats, so the final task is to eliminate them.

The preview also contains four new screenshots. One of the screenshots clearly shows the interior of Maisonette 9, one of Gay Tony's clubs. It is almost an exact replica of New York nightclub

So when you download this DLC, does it play directly off the HDD? So you dont need to have the GTA 4 disc in the drive? Cause mine is scratched up and doesnt work so that would be cool.

You do need the disc. All the added content plays directly off the HDD, however the most of the underlying content itself spools off the disc while you play.

You best bet would be to just install the GTA IV disc directly to your HDD, and then play TBOGT. This way, you still need the disc, but the 360 will only access the disc to get the validation code from it, proving that you do own the game. After that, it will no longer access the disc during the rest of the play-thru.

If for some reason the scratches on your disc prevent you from installing the GTA IV to your HDD, or prevent the 360 from accessing the validation code on the disc one you have completed the install, then find yourself a cheap DVD resurfacer like Disc Doctor or DVD Doctor, and resurface those scratches out of your disc. I've used these before in the past, and they work like magic and in most cases will have your disc working just like it was brand new, fresh out of the shrink wrap. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias...

If you buy the 2 DLC game disc at retail you don't need the GTAIV disc. I hope that made sense.

This is lookin' fantastic. I may just have to hold off though, and purchase the retail edition when it drops in price. Is there any real advantage of buying the DLC over the retail package? Will it ultimately be cheaper up front? I guess having to swap discs if I want to play as Niko again is sorta a bummer.

Who knows, DLC it is, perhaps?

It does strike me as a little strange that they didn't wait for the final piece of DLC before packing them together in a retail package.

I'll buy the retail version. Didn't get the first and my poor HDD is already full. Anyway it's gonna be an impulse purchase, I've barely any time for MW2 when it hits so I'll wait for the first price drop or buy used.

Pretty sure Microsoft's deal was for three pieces of DLC, which by the way, is awesome. Haters are constantly saying it was a waste of money. I'm guessing they're not GTA fans.

Also the money was just an interest free loan right, not an outright payment to Rockstar??
