http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_IV

They know all 18 radio stations, they know in what missions do you meet what characters and when can you kill them.
They know all characters, and most of them I never saw before.
etc. etc.
Lot of more things.

How the fuck do wikipedia people know this stuff...

By visiting sites like ours and copying the information over. There are millions of contributors to Wikipedia. The chances of at least one of them knowing about any particular subject are quite large.

Does this really belong in Hints N' Finds?

I figured this area wouldn't be posted in until someone here actually plays the game and FINDS something.


Hm?

Even though you're always on top it feels like you've been slapped in the face.

That's signature material.

OFF TOPIC: My college professor that I had last semester said that wikipedia wasn't a credible source in anything; only for the fact that you can edit anything you see on that website. He edited something (i forgot what it was) on the 1st day of class to show that you can make anything up. With all that being said, wikipedia is shit.

I'm moving this topic elsewhere. I really don't think it belongs here. Carry on.

ETA: Moved from GTA IV Hints N' Finds

Actually, I can't figure out where this should go. sad.gif

This made me lol.

I agree Wikipedia isn't the most reliable source for information, but it is checked by mods constantly to ensure it's as credible as possible. So you can't really post anything silly without it being noticed.

Yeh there was something on the Gadget Show or something, where they deliberately edited a Wikipedia article to say something obviously incorrect, and within 15 minutes it had been edited back by someone, so Wikipedia can't be that unreliable...

And no it wasn't done live lol.

I find the wiki site to be reliable for the most part.
You don't see comments of "I don't know, but I think.... I read somewhere... A neighbours kid told me... a friends daughter heard at the sandpile..."


--------------------
************* Game Hints *************
Don't go Mission to Mission. Spend time just looking around, behind walls/bushes, on roofs, under bridges. Explore the Car park buildings and anyother building you can enter...
Do the Gang Tags, Photo's, Horseshes as soon as you can.
NO Cheats -- NO Mods
