Grand Theft Auto

King of Snake

Recommended Posts

"From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City is a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto and is the most varied, complete and alive digital city ever created. Combining non-linear gameplay with a character-driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and are given the opportunity to take it over as you choose. Pop stars, real-estate developers, politicians, trailer trash: everyone is moving to Vice City to find out what makes it the number one growth city in America. But, as you'll quickly find out, trust is still the rarest of commodities.


Vice City offers vehicular pleasures to suit every taste. For the speed enthusiast, there are high-performance cars and motorbikes. For the sportsman, a powerboat or a golf buggy lets you enjoy the great outdoors. For those that need that sense of freedom and escape, why not charter a helicopter and see the beauty of Vice City from the air?


As the party capital of America, you would expect your ears to be seduced by a host of sultry melodies and pumping beats, but you'll be amazed as you sweep the through Vice City's FM dial. Tune into some driving rock, some crucial electro or maybe you want to slow down with some sweet soul--and there'll always be some great romantic anthems if you want to really take your mind off things. For the action man or the outdoors type, there're tons of fun things to do and adventures to be had. For the secretive or creepy type, Vice City is full of surprises; a place where you'll constantly be surprised by the vivacious, fun-loving types who live there and the things you can discover."

Spiffy - if its a greatest hit title now (like Tursimo 3) youll get less.

I dunno, it looks great, soundtrack's ok, but id wait on a review before trading in GTA 3 m'self. I know it looks badass from here, but just make sure they dont screw up the controls or somethin on it first, that's what id do.

The good news is, ive been waitin on GTA 3 to get cheap, and after everyone trades in their copies, maybe i can finally pick it up!

Ok everyone, get thee to http://www.rockstargames.com/vicecity, there's two trailers, tons of vehicle, character and weapon screenshots and videos! There's character soundclips and just added, the first clips of the radio stations with the returning Lazlow, Toni from Flashback FM and Fernando Martinez!


Can't say I've seen many videos, the site's seemingly set up for broadband so my shitty dial-up takes too long, but the stills alone...sweet! The Katana pic's my new wallpaper!!

Grand Theft Auto Vice City soundtracks to unlock codes, more



Rockstar Games has revealed more information on the previously announced GTA: Vice City soundtracks. All seven soundtracks, each centered around a different style of music, will unlock additional sections of the Vice City website. These sections will have additional content and exclusive codes to be used in the game.


Although a single soundtrack will run a consumer $13.98, Rockstar will release a box set with all seven discs in it for a mere $49.98. The box set will feature Vice City theming and special packaging for each disc.


Each CD is named after a radio station appearing in the game: V-Rock (featuring bands such as Judas Priest), Wave 103 (Flock of Seagulls), Emotion 98.3 (Mister Mister), Flash FM (Hall & Oates), Wildstyle Pirate Radio (Grandmaster Flash), Fever 105 (Kool & the Gang), and Radio Espantoso (Irakere).


The soundtracks will ship on the same day as the game, October 29. Soundclips from each station and CD and preorder info can be found at ViceCityRadio.com.

By now, i assume a number of you have heard the controversy over GTA: San Andreas' Hot Coffee Mod, allowing (i believe) a pro action replay or similar device to unlock "hidden" sex games. So, the game's MA-17 & off shelves in large chains until a new version without this hidden quest is released.


For those curious about digital poon the way i was, here's pics:
