Inside Liberty City: Developer Diary

17 posts in this topic

Rockstar are certainly making up for the months fans waited without any news on GTA IV by giving us a lot of stuff to enjoy over the past week or so. Today, Yahoo have posted a developer diary which details part of how Rockstar Games and Rockstar North have created Liberty City. The article includes some screenshots side-by-side with their real life counterpart, along with 4 new screenshots.

Just the detail on the shots is incredible, and the side-by-side comparisons are equally as good. I actually thought they'd make the Statue of Liberty a bit more jokey than that, seeing as they like parodying things. If you can go on the Screamer, I wonder if you can throw people out their seats...? :D I need a next-gen console now dammit. Good shots, as always.

The best thing about this article is that it points out how the graphics are merely the tip of the iceberg & what's really going to set this game apart is the level of realism & immersion that will be possible. It's going to be the little differences & the attention to detail, which will make GTA IV so much more enjoyable than the previous titles (I'm hoping).

I really want this to be a game that I can keep going back to, because unfortunately I don't think SA was. Once the missions were all done, there wasn't much left to do except start the storyline over again.

Correct me If I'm wrong, But to me it seems the liberty lady has been parodied a bit.

In the game its called the statue of happiness and it looks like its holding a beer can instead of that torch.
