-Tommy Vercetti says he ain't got no sun tan. That's why he's still just as
young in Grand Theft Auto 3 as he is in Vice City.
-The Forelli brothers come back to life in the 3rd Grand Theft Auto, even
Sunny Forelli. But he just tries to run you down.

-The Swat Teams are quite soft. They only carry uzi's and there aren't too
many of them. Realistically they're equivilant and numerous like storm
troopers.

-I hear Tokyo 2010 will be the next Grand Theft Auto, and it would be like
Blade Runner.

That's all trivia for you.

Dass 'cos, about 6 months ago, I suggested that Tokyo set in the slight
future would be a good idea. So I hereby claim credit for this rumour.
Rockstar - just send all future royalties for GTA Tokyo straight to one
of my offshore accounts.

By that I mean "Liberty City" not San Andreas. Tommy Vercetti's in Liberty
City.

Wrong, wrong , wrong, wrong, wrong.......just brimming over in
wrongability..........

In GTA3 you play as Claude Speed (IIRC)......though at the time of its
release the hero of GTA3 didnt have a name.......people used to refer to him
as Fido.......as this is what Maria jokingly called him.......

Tommy was in GTAVC........and that game only...........

There's no Tommy Vercetti in Liberty City. I wonder what happened to him
after 1986 anyway?

It's an interesting point that the Forelli's are still around in 200X
for GTAIII after taking a whoopin' from Tommy in 1986.

I'm near certain that the next installment will re-acquaint us with Mr.
Vercetti.

According to an interview with Ray Liotta, the whole VC experience was
some of the most enjoyable work he's ever done. Nobody does crazy
better than Ray Liotta, just have a look at that 5% Heineken advert.
"...it makes us kind of upset". I'd start shivering in terror if he
said that to me.....


Cheers,
Rob

I totally agree about Ray Liotta, he made a superb Tommy Vercetti.

How come you are so sure that the next game will include Vercetti again?

Cheers

I just thought it seems logical; In San Andreas we were re-introduced
to Kent Paul, Ken Rosenburg, Salvatore Leone, Claude (Who we now know
is the GTAIII character and Catalina.
Tommy is a lot of people's favourite character, and I think it would
give R* a chance to really do a fill-in-the-blanks behind the scenes
kind of GTA installment.

What I'd REALLY like to see is a GTA with multiple lead characters, but
keeping in mould with the GTA series. San Andreas did have a few
elements of an RPG, but it still had the pick-up-and-play-bility(tm) of
previous titles.

Personally, I'd also like to see a bit of history of Maccer too. IMHO
he's one of the funniest characters in SA.


Cheers,
Rob

Naw - I spend all day editing video - the last thing I want to do is watch
more of the same.

I take it there's a new Heineken advert?

I think the Tokyo rumour started long before SA came out, so it might not be
true, at least not for a while.

The SWAT teams are rubbish. Their tactics are a tad unrealistic - it's a
slightly inexperienced SWAT team that would descend slowly from ropes
attached to a helicopter directly in front of the heavily-armed lunatic that
they've been sent to arrest. And I know, because I've got SWAT3 and SWAT4,
so I must be an expert.

Even a non-expert knows it's unrealistic, because they're not all saying
"Hut Hut Hut" as they abseil* down the ropes.
