Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Yeah, GTA4 is ace! Most bonkers bit I've had so far was a mission where you had to steal a police car to access their computer, to find the location of your target. Reminder to self: Pay N Spray refuse to respray police cars when there's an army of snipers and Hummers outside

The biggest problem I've had comes down to playing on a PS3 controller for the first time, rather than mouse and keyboard. When driving along and using the phone, I keep accidentally pressing the button to dive out of the car whilst it's going They could probably use that in a government TV ad!

You don't see it, you have an external view of the appartment and you hear the girl express her appreciation.

If you want to see something more, you can pick up a hooker. You find them in Bohan at night (provided that you already unlocked the Bohan island, and later in the game also in south Alderney). Stop the car near a hooker and honk. Then drive her to an empty parking and choose the "service" that you want.

Hint #1: a convertible car allows an easier view on what's happening in the car

Hint #2: the hookers generally have money (at least the one you just gave them). After the service, they get off the car...they are alone in a dark parking...

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I did like the online mode on GTA4, at first it was just a shoot em up session, then i found a car a started running everyone over, then they all followed suit and it turned into a demolition derby!!

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

First time I picked up a hooker, I had a bit of a mishap...

Drove her to a dark place, got a bit excited and pressed all the buttons - ended up dropping a grenade right outside the car and blew myself and said hooker up! Took me a few minutes to work out what had happened - I just thought she was an exploding hooker!

Have you been inside the statue of liberty yet and seen the heart??

Just look out for the sign saying 'no hidden content this way' or something like that.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Cool, I haven't been inside yet/dind't know it was possible. I tried to land on her torch/coffe cup with a chopper because there were two pidgeons up there, but in the end I landed in the park an shot them with the sniper rifle

After finishing the game I still have only 65% completion. I guess it has to do with jumps, pidgeons and police patrol missions. Now I'm spending my time on those police missions, stealing cars for Stevie and killing pidgeons.

You can't break in a flat. Only windows I've ever broke are shop windows, like the Gotti car dealer in Algonquin or the chinese shop at the very beginning of the game.

Manny is a moron, luckily he's around only for a few missions.

To pick up a hooker you need a car (motorbike doesn't work), pull over near the hooker and honk (push L3). She will come near the car, then push L1 to allow her into the car. Drive the car to a parking or another suitable area and again push L1 to scroll thru the "service" options, then enjoy the service. Hookers can be found at night in South Bohan (near Niko's place) and South Alderney.

how do i identify a hooker?


the criteria are the same as in real life...certain areas of the city (South Bohan), after dark, high heels, mini skirts. Waiting along the road.

To be honest sometimes there are also non-hookers in the same areas, same time, same kind of clothing, but they walk around. The hookers don't move from their spot. If you honk at a non-hooker she will either insult you or run away frightened.

They also make good targets for robberies.

Another trick about robbing: if you aim at somebody, you will see a circle with colored segments (target health). If it is red, this means this is a bad guy carrying some weapon (pimp, pusher...), so killing him will give you for sure a weapon and maybe also money. Don't aim with the gun, some guys will draw their gun immediately, aim with the fist or the bat, then if it is an interesting target you may use the gun. Again, like in real life, bad guys tend to be in certain places at certain hours. You won't find them at lunch time downtown wearing a tie. Bad guys generally carry much more money than normal guys.

Sometimes bad guys shoot at you, just because you shot somebody else near them, kind of defending their territory.
