Lips 106 FM

On the Electron zone radio website the hosts are called Steve and Bill and they both use different Operating Systems. They're based on Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

Again on the Electron zone radio website there's a reference to SA. At the bottom of Bill's chat, (the pink side) it has a reference to the Cavern of Sorrow.
#-24 Imooga Iomega:
At the bottom of the MacOS chat on the Electron Zone website there is a reference to Imooga's Jiz Drive, which had its own ad on Head Radio in GTA2. Imooga's Jiz drive is a spoof to iomega zip drive
#-25 Fruits and Tossers:
The whole Electronzone radio website is a spoof off of the IBM Vs Apple debate. TOS = DOS and Fruts = Apple
#-26 Monkey Juice:
In SA there was a drink, Munky Juice ("Freshly Squeezed Taste of Parasites!") whose art showed a monkey grabbing the others' balls. In this image below, on the right side of the screen, you can make out the same image.
Source: Monkey Juice
#-27 Barbara Dead:
Barbara (a girlfriend from SA) apperas to have been shot down on this billboard
#-28 Remixed But The Same:
When Toni gets out of the bus and walks up to the pay phone in the beginning cutscene up till when he gets into the cab, the music playing is a slightly remixed version of the music used for the intro to the gta3 official website. I can't remember if the music was used anywhere in gta3 itself but if it is please say.
#-29 Madd Dogg Album:
In the street directly behind your Portland safehouse, there is a billboard advertising Madd doggs newest album.
#-30 Same Brown Bag:
Also in the beginning cutscene, Toni's suitcase is the same brown with R* logo one that was used in San Andreas multiple time.
#-31 Gurning Chimps:
On Head Radio the presenter (Michael Hunt) talks about meeting the 'Gurning Chimps' a British rock group mentioned in the SA introduction CD. He also talks about Maccer throwing up all over him.

#-34 Hello Again:
In gta3 there was sign telling you that you weren't meant to get here. This time the sign's changed to say 'Hello again.' On the PS2 version of LCS, the sign says 'You just can't get enough of this alley can you? There is a picture and video showing you how to reach the sign (PSP version) with voice commentary for Kiousikle.
Picture: Hello Again!
Video: Video Walkthrough
#-35 Helicopters flyable!:
Yup that's right, a member of pspupdates.com's forum called gmrxbox cleverly found out that (Not giving anything away) in a mission called 'Calm of the storm' if you drive over the yellow circular marker on a roof you can gain access to a helicopter which, when you press triangle is flyable! Kuiosikle didn't think the members video was enough proof so he went ahead and made his own video with better quality for more evidence that it wasn't an editted video.
#-36 The Happiest Liberty Will Ever look:
Snow is definatly in the game, but it comes at a price. The only way found (So far) to get snow in Liberty City Stories is to complete up to level 9 of the Car salesman side missions in Portland. I asked the finder of this if snow was now an unlocked weather condition that would occer every now and then like rain, but sadly as soon as he failed the car salesman mission the snow stopped. Kuiosikle made a video to prove all the doubters wrong.
#-37 Victims Not Forgotten:
An interesting little feature to look out for here. Most of the time when you kill someone in LCS their name appear on the headstones at the cemetary on Staunton Island. Not the small one nestled north of the church, that remains unchanged, but the "new" ones south of the church.
#-38 Hitch hiking Peds:
every once in awhile, some random ped will get in your car. From one of
The same thing happened while waiting for a ferry.
Some guy hops in my car and sits there.
Then when i take the ferry back to portland, he gets out and walks away.

Maria refers to Toni on the phone as 'Fido' the same way she did yo Claude back in gta3
#-42 Making Another Brief Return:
Mickey, Luigi's bodyguard in gta3 makes a return in one or 2 missions such as 'A made man'.
#-43 Explains The Change:
Maria, Ma Cipriani and Salvatore (to name a few) keep pressuring Toni that he's too skinny and that he needs to eat more. Which explains why he becomes so fat in such a short amount of time between 1998 and 2001
#-44 Kill Bill:
* The Mission's name (Crazy 69's) comes from the Movie Kill Bill. O'Ren's Yakuza Clan is known as the 'Crazy 88's.'
* The Dragon Outfit (That you gain as a reward for completing the mission) is based on the costume worn by Beatrice Kiddo in Kill Bill, but also the outfit worn by Billy Wong (Bruce Lee) in the movie: 'Game of Death'
#-45 Same Brown Bag:
The Leon Mcaffrey/Ray missions appear to refer to something.
1: Sayonara Sindaccos - A reminder of 'Sayonara Salvatore' in gta3

3: Crazy '69' - Crazy 88s
4: Night of the livid dreads - Night of the living dead

#-49 Mr Benn and Fireman Sam
Mr Benz is the costume shop in LCS that you get the Tux and Lawyer costume.
Mr Benn is a classic tv series where Mr Benn would visit a costume shop. He would try on a set of clothes and leave the changing room through a second door and into an adventure themed around the costume.
Fireman Sam is another long running kids show.
Sam is the name of the Fireman in multiplayer.
Souces:Mr Benn | Fireman Sam
#-50 lionel hutz
The name that Sal gives his fictional lawyer is "Lionel". Possible Simpsons "Lionel Hutz" the lawyer reference?
#-51 Third leg
Simple. Third leg means "large penis"
Picture:Third leg poster
#-52 Grand Theft Porto
In Staunton, as you come out of Phil Cassidy's gun shop on the east side, the street just south has a massive lit up billboard (Kinda like a sh*tload of lightbulbs), and one of the things scrolling across is
"GRAND THEFT PORTO - OUT NOW"
Obviously a self reference, not only GTA, but "Porto" is fairly obviously referencing "portable"
There are also many more things that scroll across the billboard, including an advert for 'GTA3: The Musical', 'Bad Man Returns' and 'Honey I Shrunk My Skids'.
#-53 Carl in Liberty City?
Well...Sort of. Somewhere in Bedford point there is a building with, what looks like a person shooting a hoop. Sound familier to an early San Andreas screenshot?
Does this mean that CJ went back to Liberty City to become a sponsor for Heat Q Clothing? or is it just because Rockstar was lazy to get an another image? tounge.gif
#-54 Recycled Peds?:
In 'Sunshine Shine' poster, the members have an uncanny similarity to the drug dealer pedestrian in San Andreas
#-55 Sonny Forelli's Story:
Several posters around Liberty City in 1998, advertise what appears to be a movie about the infamous life and past times of Sonny Forelli, who was killed by Tommy in 1986.
#-56 Same Pictures, Different Times:
A picture appears on a shelf inside one of the safehouses in LCS, with a man in grey and a woman in red (Katie Zhan, one of CJ's Girlfriends in SA) looking face on at the camera. Not only do they look like peds from SA, but the picture also appears in San Andreas.
#-57 ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US...A:
On the yellow marquee in Staunton on the street where all the ads are, it says 'All Your Base Are Belong To USA', a spoof of 'All Your Base Are Belong To Us' which was translated poorly from Japanese in the US version of the SNES game Zero Wing.
#-58 British TV...In America!?:
Throughout the game there are several references to many popular British TV shows. One such reference is in the name of Father Ned, the reverand who you recieve missions from in the church. His name sounds very similar to the TV show with the name Father Ted
#-59 British Slang:
As well as the (ex) mayor being 'R.C. Hole' (Arse Hole), when you check his gravestone, you can see his first name as 'Roger'. This means he's called 'Roger C. Hole', which sounds a lot like Roger Ze Hole ('Roger' being a british slang word for f*ck).
#-60 Liquor Charlies:
In the Little Italy area of Fort Staunton, there's a shop called 'Liquor Charlies' (Lick Her Charlies)
#-61 Page 3:
The name of the bookstore in the same place is called 'Page 3', reference to the british newspaper 'The Sun', with it's infamous page three topless shot every day.
#-62 Manhunt Reference
On the backside of the Mr Whopee ice cream truck, it says 'Please Stop Me This is a refence to Manhunt, another game by Rockstar, where the same words are painted onto a weird, creepy yellow face mask
#-63 Toyz in da Hood!
On the side of the 'Toyz' van, there is a logo saying 'Toyz n' the Hood.' It's a reference to the movie 'Boys n' the Hood.' (Also in GTA3)
#-64 The Pearlfisher's Necklace
Yet another bit of Rockstar's tounge and cheek with another sexual reference. The Pearl Necklace being a sexual act.
#-65 The Pearlfisher's Necklace
A mixture of George Bizet's Oprea Les pêcheurs de perles (The Pearl Fishers) + the Pearl Necklace euphemism.
#-66 The Kessan Family Tree
Toshiko's "Love turns to Hate" letter dated 5/1998 on the LCS site, explains the relationship between the LCS Kassens and the GTAIII Kassens: Kazuki is Kenji and Asuka's brother.
#-67 Candy Suxx! in 1998
Candy Suxxx was a porn star that appeared in Vice City. You can see billboards all around LCS advertizing her latest movie "Let Me Bounce!"
Around Portland, you can find spray tags for a local gang 'Bully Boys.' This could possibly be a reference to another Rockstar game 'Bully'
#-69 A Bronx Tale Hidden Package
Somewhere in the advertising burmph for LCS it says :-
"Everyday there are thousands of stories in Liberty City, and this is just one of them"
The 1993 movie "a Bronx Tale" had more or less the same spoken word introduction It is evident that Rockstar heavily parodied off this movie as even the hidden packages (The horned hand) are clear evidence of this, as the character 'Sonny' (who plays the mafia boss) uses that very hand signal to his fellow mobsters throughout the movie.
A Bronx Tale movie poster
#-70 Guns for Leones' Navarone
The mission name "Guns of Leone" is a parody of the movie "Guns of Navarone." Navarone was also the weapons code in GTA2.
Directly behind Toni in the beginning cutscene is a fast food resturant that goes by the name 'Tube'. This is an obvious parody of the fast food outlet 'Subway'. You can tell by the arrows in both the ficticious 'Tube' and real 'Subway' signs
