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.

Meh. It's the best of times and the worst of times. Is there a manual save on this thing?

I just had the mission where you chase the motorcycle boyfriend guy (yes, VERY early in the game) and every time you have to friggen start where you have to drive and do all that crap for like five minutes.
HATE that.

But, on a previous mission I was on a cycle and found a plywood ramp and shot up some cops and launched my azz all the way to the ocean. NIIIIICE!

In your safe house, if you go to the bed, you can save there. Just be careful because passes 6 hours of game time, so if you have any appointments, don't do this.

I do understand what you mean where if you fail a mission you can either look at the messages on your cell and retry, or load your last save. I try to make sure that I have all my weapons, health and armor, and do a save before I start any new mission, this way if it goes bad, I can just reload, and go back to the mission without having to go get the rest of the crap.


On a side note, why did they make motorcycles so hard to drive in this one. In GTA S.A. the motorcycle was the best mode of transport, now you get flung us if you even bump into a car.

It's heli-frustrating to make your way through the goons and warehouse, only to miss the jump to the chopper. Once you do that, however, it's a cinch.

Well, I finally dropped it in the 360, and promptly lost several hours of my life. I've just finished "Uncle Vlad", taken down a drug house with the Jamaican, gone on a couple of dates with Michelle, and done some taxi work for Roman.

HOLY CRAP! I am beyond impressed. I couldn't get into GTA:SA, but this one has grabbed me. It's everything I liked about "The Godfather"...on crack. This thing has a great and twisted sense of humor.

Thanks to all who contributed to this thread. It's what convinced me to pick it up.

I've had the game now since it came out, but when my roommate left town, I deleted everything and decided to start over from scratch last night...


Once session. 11 1/2 hours. 26% through the game.

I'm pretty sure you can hold L1 on the PS3 version and it is an immediate switch. Not positive though. I never messed with it.
