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.

There's a garage icon that appears on the top right island.

Finished story mode over the long weekend too, and now collecting the rest of Stevies cars, meeting sick freaks, doing the races, and yes, hunting pidgeons. Started playing around with the online function too.

Are you talking about the bank robbery with the irish family? That's one of coolest missions of the games.

The guy dies and you see the movie, after that you have to rush out of the bank and fight the cops (lots of SWAT with automatic weapons and body armor). Stay close to the remaining McReary's. It's a long&difficult fight, in different locations and you need to use the automatic rifle (M16 or AK47) if you want to survive. Hand grenades are very handy at certain points. If you survive the bullets, at the very end you need to get a car and escape and it's quite tricky because you are followed by an helicopter and patrol cars, humvees, armored trucks...

Speaking of Stevie's cars... I stole quite a lot of them, but now I'm stuck because I must find a car near the "swingers golf club", and I don't know where it is. It is not the golf practicing range on the pier near the bowling, I already went there and it has another name. Nor it is the minigolf course in Firefly. The SMS doesn't give any other indication

Anyone knows where the heck is this place? I even tried to go around with a chopper to look for golf courses...kein Erfolg!

in GTA4...go to the internet cafe and type in www.alltheydontwantyoutoknow.com
and check on these maps where golf club is.

it shows all leisure sites, shops, bars, weapons, bulletproofs, medi packs, secret jumps etc. its slightly a cheat, but not a real one...

OK, I remember that mission. I had the same problem, but I have no particular trick. Just stay close to them and shoot the enemies as fast as possible

I'll have a look. I agree that it's not a real cheat, I think I heard/read about this web address at some point in the game, maybe on the Weazel news or some other carachter talks about it.

Speaking of cheats, in the in-game web there is a web site about using golf as an excuse to cheat on the wife, so this "swingers" golf club might be related to it, though there is no indication of an actual place on their web site.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

So guys, lets talk decisions....what did you decide to do for example when you get the chance almost at the end to work with dimitri or take revenge?

Im guessing everyone took revenge like me?

Did you kill the guy, cant remember his name draco i think?

What about playboy and Derek?

I guess once ive finished its back to the beginning and chose the opposite to see what happens.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Never loved playboy x, simpatized a lot with dwayne, so the choice was easy.

Dimitri is a pain in the neck, I guess everybody killed him. But if you don't, I believe the story unfolds in another way, with an alternative ending since you don't **** off Jimmy Pegorino.

With dereck and francis, I killed francis because I've always hated him, I think he was much worse than his outlaw brothers. I've heard that if you kill dereck, francis will help you remove the "supect level" stars when chased by cops, though in my case I was dating Kiki (Lawchick) who was able to do the same. Anyway killing Francis, you don't get anything.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I saved just before revenge or deal, and did both, 2 slightly different endings, won't spoil it for you though.

I never like Francis either, so he was offed. Same with Playboy X.

I think the other characters you get the choice to dispatch or not come back as one of the characters you can find dotted around the game. I got an extra little mission from Ivan when I came across him after sparing him earlier.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

i have killed playboy x.

the first guy dracko...i pulled him up again...then gave him a very fine smack on his back of the head to make him fall down the building, hahahaha! dimitri i shot. nice "slow mo" of a bullet cracking is head.

the girl i shot first, next try i rather went to get him on his motorbike.

i did not get why jason was killed and i had to get him to the doctor?
skipped the sequence, so...what was wrong with him? (i crushed the trunk a bit and he was hanging out dead all the way through the city, hahahahaha)
