With a month to go before the release of Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS, Rockstar are starting to build up some hype for the game. I was actually lucky enough to play GTA Chinatown Wars at Rockstar Games' New York offices a few weeks ago when I was over there, and it is actually an incredibly good game. I only played for about 30 minutes, but we were shown a good hour long demonstration and talked through it by one of the R* guys, and from my first impressions, I was very surprised by what I saw.

I'll be posting a small preview of the game soon (this should have been done last week, but I've been busy writing guides, taking screenshots and making maps and checklists for GTA4: Lost And Damned), however if you've not really been following Chinatown Wars thinking that it's just a small portable game, you're making a BIG mistake because it does actually look as if it's going to be a great game, albeit on a small console.

Anyway, IGN have got an interview with some of the guys from R* Leeds, so you might want to check it out for some details about the new game. If you've got a DS, this game is a must buy, if not, perhaps you're going to want to buy a DS just to play it. Time will tell.

I gotta agree it looks very impressive for a DS game, I like the graphic style in it, allot more detail then I was expecting. Suppose I might buy it if I ever get a new job, I only played my DS on breaks.


lol, I didn't notice the sunken ship the first time.

The graphics look pretty good, I just can't imagine staring at those little screens to play GTA.

**Turns on 360 with 42" TV hooked up**

I guess it will be good for those who don't have a console or travel quite a bit, but it's not going to make me run out and get a DS. Ever.

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I still beleive it's a scam to make more people buy the Nintendo DS. Rockstar know GTA: CW will sell well. This is why GTA: LCS and GTA: VCS first came on the PSP and PS2 users had to wait a year, it was to make more people buy the PSP.

Why the PSP? What's wrong with the PS3 and XBox 360?

Despite you being wrong on both your arguments...

They came to the DS for a number of reasons, It's been doing very well on it's own, they never did a DS game, this also allows them a new way of making the game due to the touch screen.

As for the PSP titles, it's just absurd to assume such a thing, the game was made for PSP and "ported" to the PS2. There is no way their sales would be better doing this.

Besides that, the only reason Rockstar would have to try an sell a handheld or a console, is if they were paid by Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft, and far as I know Nintendo and Sony never paid them anything for those titles.
