Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I've stopped playing for a week or so (been playing NHL 08 and getting beaten by 12 year olds) - I'll have to stop reading this thread until I've finished it. Then again, maybe this 360 invader shouldn't be in this thread in the first place

i like playing that game too, but it is a bit difficult to slam the puck with the sticky myself.

@lee: you have FIFA, do you? wanna play an online match?

I hammered another shall-not-be-named-Basel person from this forum 11-2 on NHL07 PS3 version the other week, who said gaming was painless

NHL is a cracking game when you work out how to score and where to shoot from

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

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

just a quick detail, was the in-game website not: www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com ?

On another note, sorry in advance for a stupid question!, are there any missions where you can have 2 players, without being online?? I thought at first that would be possible like in San Andreas, but have gotten nowhere so far.. so any advice is welcome!

I went to all the bloody spots on the map without finding the freakin' golf club, but now I've find something on yahoo answers. It is a golf club in the swingers' baseball stadium, in Algonquin near the bowling. I'll go n look for it

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Is it just me or is the 3rd island a bit of a let down??

Personally i would love to see San Andreas with these graphics......GTA 5 perhaps??

Or even, one better would be London like in 'Getaway'.

I know its early days as everyone is still excitapated about GTA4, but has anyone got any links to Rockstar talking about future plans?? Cant seem to find anything via google.

scoring is ok, but defense is a pain in the a.ss to me! i dont get how to bodycheck! i simply play beginners level because im **** at defense.
no matter how and what i try i cant bodycheck. im too slow or miss the attacker...in the old days it was simply speeding up n press (square).

I was wondering something similar to this. Loving the game (and haven't unlocked the last large island yet) but there really isn't the same kind of variety of zones there were in San Andreas. Hope that doesn't get boring!

Played the mission where you have to wipe out the owners of the strip club last night. One guy gets away in a really slow truck, and I had a really slow car.... spent about 20 minutes chasing him in circles! Eventually the cops cornered me, I managed to pinch one of their cars and only then catch the guy in the truck....

Oh well

this mission it was a pain in the XXX!

what i like is that you can chose a bit of a different way to complete the mission e.g. when i had to steal the truck, first mission with pickey. when we were "chasing away" you can drop grenades to kill the enemies or ram them or ike i did: just stopped, got out of the truck and shot them in their cars.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

I think I prefer this setting to SA, it might not have as much variety, but it is more densely packed. I don't think I've ever had quite so much fun as blasting around the middle island in a sports car, dodging all the traffic.

I had the same problem, I solved it running away quickly as soon as I opened the door leaving the cops alone. After a bit of running around, I found a vehicle and drove away.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Been meaning to ask my mate who was involved in GTA IV (worked on the starting area and Bohan - also has the name of his World of Warcraft guild as graffiti in part of it!) and he said the following:

Quote:
No plans for a follow up yet, but chances are it'll start next year
And by no plans I mean we don't know, rather than they haven't decided if they'll do one
