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.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

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 detail is very good, and I like the mucky water in the second screenshot, everything seems so life like and the graphics have been a major improvement to previous versions.

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.

Well fuck, good looking. The WHOIS information shows this:

Isn't Network Solutions the company that Rockstar buys their domains from?

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.

If you're one of the 8% who would be watching and laughing,put this in your sig.
