Another Fake GTAIV Screenshot

By Chris | 10th Jul 2006 at 15:58 GMT in GTA IV | 13 Comments
Today my inbox saw another fake screenshot arrive. This time from someone known as 'Inky'. It's a fairly standard fake screen, supposedly a real photo taken from a television on which GTAIV is playing. The HUD and radar are clearly borrowed from San Andreas, though. Also, the man in the screenshot is just one of the characters from Half Life 2. (thanks chris82)

UPDATE: Last week I actually received a nice fake screen from 'jamesdehunter', forgot to post about it, the screen depicts blood spattered London Underground signage...

Weebls Stuff Comical GTA4 Preview

By Chris | 6th Jul 2006 at 18:29 GMT in GTA IV | 5 Comments
Bizunth over at Weebls-Stuff has put up an amusing preview of GTA4. They're going for a fictional city based on London, avoiding any clich├ęs.

The key thing here is realism. True Britishness. You'll be able to happy-slap random pedestrians, with a photo being saved to your memory card each time. The city will be covered in bird crap. You won't be able to get a signal on the radio stations going through tunnels, and if you do you can bet they'll be playing the same song all day. A minigame involving the Queen's vagina has been removed due to the recent Hot Coffee debacle.

Gang hand signals are replaced with rhyming slang, the respect meter is replaced by a dial showing how much you love your mum. Even prostitutes won't just get in your car straight away, you'll have to find their card in a red phone box, give them a call and arrange a meeting time and place, and hope that you aren't beaten up by a Russian man in a tracksuit...

There's loads more amusing details of course, so for a hilarious read during this slow news week, head over to Weebls-Stuff to read their satirical preview.

Thanks to Gerard for this link.
