Niko's Room - Grand Theft Auto IV Thread

For all discussion on actually playing the game.

Cars are sort of tough to maneuver so far, with all the camera details you can get into.

Put the subtitles on. Then you understand what they're saying, and it will even translate the foreign language.

Does the game take different paths, with one being the correct path and the other incorrect?

For example...in one of the first few missions where vlad wants you to kill some dude, and he's hanging on the railing, you are given an option to either kill him, or help him.

What if you ignore romans calls while driving to pick up michelle or something?

I went ahead and picked up Michelle, rather than go off to save his dumb fat ass. After the date I got a call from the hospital When I picked him up he bitched a bit but was more interested in Michelle's titties. hehe

I let the guy live that I was chaseing Vlad for then I did a few missions saved went and loaded my old Save and killed the guy I was getting the same missions both times.


As for Roman I ignored his calls twice and he just kept geting more and more pissed no change in story line as far as i can tell.

Later on in the game there seems to be a big choice between a Drug dealer and his mentor whois names I wont Say.

I love how it retains a familiar feel, but at the same time it's so completely different.

- The acting and cutscenes are fan-****ing-tastic. Niko's already hilarious in a calm, bemused sort of way, and I'm only five missions in.
- Driving is INCREDIBLY fun, but at the same time a lot tougher than it used to be.
- Melee combat kind of resembles Bully, only a thousand times more varied and engaging. It's also a lot of fun.
- The filter is incredibly jarring at first, but after 15-20 minutes it feels more natural, and now with a couple of hours under my belt I'm fully appreciating the beauty of the game. The lighting really is everything it was cracked up to be.
- The density of everything (buildings, cars, people, radio stations) is absolutely awe-inspiring. The peds are awesome and the variety of cars I've seen so far (just in Broker, mind) is great and the traffic patterns seem to be a perfect balance between reality and playability.
- Stealing cars is a little more deliberate, or at least it feels that way. It's a nice improvement.
- Speaking of density, I haven't had any "turn around and the cars are gone" moments yet, thank God.
- "Goodbye Horses" is playing on the apartment radio right now.
- Radio Vladivostok is so ****ing catchy. Still not sure I luuuurv the radio as much as I did in Vice City, but I've probably only heard 4% of it so far. I did hear a very short but amusing interview with a certain extremely popular radio host from previous games, though.

Are you playing it on the 360 or PS3? I'll probably get it today or tonight. I'm leaning toward the 360 version because I heard an interview with one of the developers and he said the 360 was the way to go, although IGN said the PS3 version might be a tiny bit better.
