    Official grand theft auto san andreas thread

    Ok since i know many people will get this game since many love the gta series, i decided to post a bunch of info on the game of the year coming out this october. Its supposed to be 10x times better then the recent vice city. I found this info on another sports board.


    Here are some news and updates about it.




    Game Spot: Late today, Rockstar gave many PlayStation 2 owners what they've been waiting for--their first glimpse of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

    A trio of images on the official San Andreas Web site seemed to confirm what many who have been following the game suspected. It will be set in modern times (not in the 1970s, as some had said) and will have a heavy West Coast gangsta flava.

    The first image could be taken from any one of the many late 1980s/early 1990s gangsta films, such as Menace II Society or Colors. It depicts a quartet of cornrowed, Uzi-toting OGs performing a drive-by shooting from a car from the same period.

    Shot number two shows a young hood, also with an Uzi, squatting in front of a tricked-out old-school convertible, often called a "hooptie" or a "hoo-ride." He is wearing what looks like a Carhartt jacket and Timberland boots--the de facto gangsta uniform circa 1994.

    The last shot shows the same character riding a bicycle down a neighborhood street straight out of Compton, with single-level homes set against a smog-colored sky. No information was released on whether bicycles can be ridden in the game.

    The Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas site also has a new splash page, which changes each time the site is loaded. One shows a blond woman bending over to show the tattoos on her décolletage. Another features a baseball-cap-wearing gangsta sporting what could be called "mad bling." A third shows a scantily clad Latina in a bandana halter top, and a fourth shows a snarling thug with tattoo sleeves and a shaven head.

    [UPDATE] Early this morning, Rockstar released the first plot summary of GTA: SA, which confirmed its early 1990s millieu. Here it is verbatim:

    "Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas...a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.

    Now, it's the early 90s. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

    On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets."

    All the information released by Rockstar indicates that the controversial Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has not lost the rough-and-ready nature of its predecessors. GameSpot will have more details on this highly anticipated title--which is due in Q4 2004--as they become available.







    -much larger city, 7x the size of Vice City. This game will take awhile to beat, which adds to the fun.

    -more vehicles, including a bicycle. This should be interesting, I wonder if you can perform drive by's on the bike.

    -you can now swim. It got so annoying when you would fall in the water and immediately died.

    -you have to eat to regain stamina. This makes it a little like a Sim game, since if you eat too much you can get fat.

    -you can workout. You can go to the gym and get buff, but if you get too much muscle it will slow you down.

    -more property options. You can buy a casino, and use your property you buy to perform illegal tasks. You can hire people to work for you at these places too.

    -90s music. They always have great music, in Vice City they had a lot of 80s music, I can't wait to see what 90s music is on this one.



    Brand new graphics engine meaning getting the most for Playstation 2's hardware
    .Fully rendered interiors and more of them
    .Restaraunts
    .Casino's
    .Past Grand-Theft-Auto characters make an appearance
    .Famous voice actors .Much better cop and pedestrian AI, they're not as stupid
    .Four-person drive-bys are possable
    .You can rob houses
    .You must eat to stay healty and maintain stamina. If you eat to much you get fat, if you don't eat you get skinny, perhaps die?
    .The city reacts to your characters health and appearance, pedestrians will make fun of you if you are fat
    .You can go to the gym to work out
    .Ability to swim. For how long we don't know, maybe only in shallow water.
    .News weapons and re-made old weapons
    .Better car handling
    .More transport, even a public transport system


    New information:
    -- Three franchise restaurants are to be included: Burger Shot, Well Stacked Pizza and Cluckin Bell, a Mr. Whoopee ice cream stand, as well as the Sprunk Soda brand beverage which was in Vice City.

    -- A message will pop up onscreen when Carl becomes hungry. Players who ignore this message will see CJ's bodyfat reduce, with the effect of his clothes no longer fitting properly. Skininess won't just have a visual effect either, a thin Carl will be weak, unable to throw powerful punches, lift heavy boxes and will lack stamina, meaning cycling, running and swimming become difficult.

    -- Conversely, eating too much will see Carl become fat, with similar effects of loss of stamina, poor fighting abilities (due to slow response times AND CJ becoming a larger object to hit). Interestingly, the walking animation will change, to a penguin style 'waddle' due to CJ's inability to put his hands by his sides while in this state.

    And for everyone that thinks there's just fat and fit:

    "The key thing to note is that skinny doesn't necessarily mean fit. You'll have to manage CJ's development of fat and muscle to have him be in optimal physical condition. Once you understand how the system works, you'll be able to have a custom CJ that you can physically tailor at your whim."



    -- Carjacking will be much more difficult this time. However, Carl will have a wealth of moves at his disposal, including pistol whips, kicks, punches and banging heads off the dash to ensure he can 'borrow' a new set of wheels.
    -- Stunts/Tricks are possible on the game's bicycles, including endos, wheelies, hops, 180's and 360's.
    -- St. Brutus Motel isn't just part of one mission, it'll operate as a general meeting place throughout the game.
    -- Carl can learn new fighting moves as his stat levels for each physical ability increase.
    -- San Fierro's gym will be in the 'Dojo' style and will allow a totally different set of fighting techniques to be learned than in Los Santos's gym or the gym in Las Venturas.
    -- CJ can defend himself from incoming hits, likely using his arms, legs etc.
    -- The police helicopter's light affects the view of the action, looking into it will produce a 'blinding' effect.
    -- Police will duck for cover and reappear during a fight.
    -- Cops on motorbikes will fire their weapons while chasing.
    -- Environments will contain a greater degree of interactivity, with trees swaying in the wind, heat haze and billboards which players can drive their cars through, of course destroying them in the process.




    Ill give more updates since it will be very long and i dont know if webby will approve of me taking up a lot of space in just one post and thread. :lol:


    O and heres what the cover looks like.

    It doesnt come out till october i believe. The only people that would have this game is prolly the designers themselves.

    Ya i cant wait for this game as well, vice city was awesome when it first came out and i can expect that san adreas will be the same way especially since it has threee cities that are 5 times the size of vice city.

    I still havent finished GTA 3. As good as it looks I might pass. I'm really looking forward to Star Wars Battlefront, and Monster Hunter looks very good.

    YOu serious??? You havent even beated gta3 yet. You got a long way to go then. The last mission of that game is prolly the most fun but yet the most complicating unless you use cheats on it. I shouldnt give it away to you yet if you didnt beat the last mission.

    I got it around when it came out, played it, but the charm kinda of fell off of it. I tend to play more sport games and pop it in every few months do a mission or two. I think I am atleast half way done in the second city area. I just keep going on killing sprees and get distracted with that.

    -- SubUrban is a clothing outlet in Ganton (Watts inspired, Ballas Area), which sells expensive clothes.
    -- ProLaps, located in Downtown Los Santos, sells very expensive, sports-style clothes, which will allow him to blend in more with the rest of the public.

    Quote:
    -- Robberies can only take place at night.
    -- Not all missions will carry a cash reward.
    -- Robberies are started by stealing a removal truck and hitting the R3 button.
    -- Sneaking mode will be enabled by wearing a balaclava or ski mask.
    -- A noise meter will appear on screen in sneaking mode, and rewards are given for quieter robberies.
    -- New audio technology allows realistic distortions to dialogue, meaning you'll have to really listen hard to hear what's being said.
    -- A fence will purchase stolen goods from you.
    -- Silenced weapons are in.
