Prostitutes Pay You Cheat

By Chris | 25th Mar 2005 at 17:55 GMT in San Andreas | 4 Comments
edisoncarter found another cheat, this one makes prostitutes pay YOU. Although if you've already done the pimping missions this happens already. This was the 2nd supposedly unknown cheat, but Bone on GTAForums found out it's use. We still have the 1st unknown cheat we posted earlier, that is still a mystery as to what it does.

Prostitutes Pay You:

If you've already done the pimping missions, this already happens.

Unknown Cheat

This cheat does absolutely nothing

New Cheats

edisoncarter has found a decent cheat, probably more useful for newbies I guess, since it gives you infinite health. There's also a cheat which we don't know the affect of, so please inform us if you find out.

Infinite Health:

Makes you mostly bulletproof, and fire, punches and melee attacks don't hurt you anymore. You can still be hurt by explosions, falling, getting run over, and drowning.

Unknown Cheat

It is not currently known what this cheat actually does, please inform us if you find out

Gamestar Get World Exclusive SA PC Preview

By Chris | 22nd Mar 2005 at 17:47 GMT in San Andreas | 4 Comments
I reported earlier on how PCGamer were expecting to have the exclusive, but it seems German magazine Gamestar have already got it, after travelling to Rockstar's NYC offices to preview the game.
The magazine which goes on sale on Wednesday 23rd March (tomorrow) all over Germany, has a massive 8 pages on the game, which includes 12 never before seen screenshots. So if your in the country be sure to pick up a copy.
Below is a summary of the main points taken from the article:

  • The draw distance is considerably higher in the PC version.
  • Real reflections on buildings can be seen in a screenshot. Real reflections will also be visible on cars and shiny floors.
  • The German version will be censored of blood, you also won't be able to mug people for money.
  • You can forget washed out textures from the PlayStation 2 version. The PC version will not be a 1:1 copy of the PS2 version, but a whole new graphical experience.
  • It is not yet confirmed how the 2-player mode will work on the PC.
  • The PC version will allow you to import your own MP3 for listening on the radio. You can even specify an MP3 folder on your hard disk, which the radio will play songs from between advertisements and DJ commentary.
  • As of writing the preview, the game is 90% complete and ready to be released in June.

PC Gamer Review - Soon

By Chris | 21st Mar 2005 at 20:35 GMT in San Andreas | 1 Comment
Jordan over at PlanetGTA has spoken to an editor of PCGamer magazine who has confirmed they will be having the first review of San Andreas on PC, as they did with Vice City. However, it will not be in the May issue, rather the June issue. PCGamer will apparently be receiving a beta copy of the game to review shortly. The mag will be available to subscribers near the end of April or beginning of May, so a few weeks to wait yet.

Cheats & No Awards for San Andreas

By Chris | 15th Mar 2005 at 17:22 GMT in San Andreas | 9 Comments
First of all we have a couple more cheats from edisoncarter:

Always Midnight:

Clock stopped at 00:00. Weird sudden weather changes. If you kill yourself, it stays at 12:00.

Recruit Anyone (Rocket Launcher):

Recruits get a rocket launcher if they don't already have a weapon.

In other news, you may remember we reported last month on the Game Developers Choice Awards, in which San Andreas was nominated for an award in 4 categories. Unfortunately and suprisingly San Andreas walked away with nothing for a change, the big winner was Half Life 2 which grabbed 4 awards.

New Cheat - Kinky

By Chris | 8th Mar 2005 at 22:39 GMT in San Andreas | 0 Comments
Another cheat from edisoncarter. Although be warned, apparently some PS2's freeze after activation. We recommend you do NOT save with any cheats on anyway as it has been proven to corrupt game saves, so it's up to you whether you want to take the risk of saving with cheats on.

Slut Magnet (Kinky Theme):

Changes most peds to prostitute's with sex toys and CJ wears the gimp suit.

San Andreas Advertisements Banned

By Cough7007 | 4th Mar 2005 at 21:42 GMT in San Andreas | 8 Comments
San Andreas advertisments have been banned in the UK after eight parents complained about the commercial.

The parents said that they were concerned about the commercial airing because not only was it aired at a time when children are still watching TV, but the parents reported that it was also the use of drugs, intense violence, and the spraying of graffiti that made the commercial too adult-like for children.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) started an investigation on the issue, and on Wednesday, the ASA announced that the advertisments will be banned from UK television because they were concerned about the commercial's "Threatening Atmosphere".

The ad is now only allowed to be aired after the 'watershed', which is 9 PM, this way the parents are the only ones to blame if they let their children see the advertisement.

Rockstar Games said that their purpose of the commercial was not towards the children, rather towards the adults. (Half of the audience is not required the play the game, anyway.)
