Thanks to FreshRollyG for this mention:

- There are now underwater missions
- When using a powerful weapon close-up it will remove the body part completely
- If you ever get lost, you will receive a phone call on your Cell Phone to put you back on track.
- There could be kids in the game, it also has ‘make a quick getaway on some kids bike’ and ‘There is so much going on. Cars, bikes, citizens, gangs, kids’. Then remember there is an amusement park.
- There is a mention of CJ being able to surf, but it’s not confirmed
- You can do certain stealth kills with melee weapons, each weapon having a different animation. E.g. with a knife you impale the blade into their necks.
- CJ actually has his own crib in Orange Grove
- Peds can sleep and also you can do stealth kills while they are sleeping too
- You can visit shops, markets and drug related businesses in Hashury
- You can play basketball by yourself or take on other people
- There are pubs in the country towns
- Angel Pine is the size of 2 Vice City Blocks
- There is a motel up on Mount Chiliad
- You can also add artistic designs on your car at TransFender
- You can now power slide with the handbrake, and not so stiff and quick like previous GTA’s.
- Not only does your cars structure get damaged, but modifications made on your get bent and wrecked too.
- You can fly 3x higher then in VC
- Gambling is a stat and is increased based on your maximum bets
- You can only play at some tables if you are a high roller
- Recruiting gang members depends on your respect level

How Turf Owning Works:
To take over turf you go to enemy territory and start taking out the rival gang. After you survive a couple waves of attacking, the turf now belongs to OGF, and as such they will start spawning on the street. Every now and then someone from a rival gang will try to take the turf back...So you got to scrap together a posse and defend it.

Unlike the mainstream forums, we're gritty, crazy sociopaths. And still approved by Rockstar. Most GTA Sites cater to a younger, softer audience (Zidane?), as opposed to this forum, which caters to bi-polar grandmothers with too many cats (Pyro?).

message from

Cheers bro, I appreciate it!!

What you describe is more or less correct, but the game is not in a finished state and thus, there is nothing I can say about the actual controls and the responsiveness of the gameplay which would be representative of the final product. It all moves beautifully on screen though and I can attest to a marked improvement in the method of combat, something I have long thought is RockStar's weakest link.

As for the streets they are far more active and cluttered than anything seen in previous versions - a testament to the improved power of the GTA engine and RockStar's dedication to make each of San Andreas’ regions distinct. The car makes and models are updated to 90’s standards, of course. and in Los Santos there were quite a few dubbed-up rides too. As for more traffic...sure it gets busy in Los Santos but head out into the countryside and you can, at times, see no other vehicle.

As for shortcomings – there’s nothing worth commenting on at this stage. The game I saw was not complete for starters, plus, RockStar would not have actively shown me any flaws, if there are any...

I have seen a lot of talk on this thread regarding the possibility of kids in San Andreas. I hope I wasn't too misleading. San Andreas is a living, breathing world and there is the illusion that children do exist and play within it. But at no time do I recall seeing a kid out in the streets where it could fall into harms way.

I highly doubt that even the controversy-happy lads at RockStar would allow kids to become an interactive part of the San Andreas gameplay.

check ya later

Chris


i hope that should clear up the kid issue.

I think everyone here has herd that R* are thinking of everything...they seem to know what us gamers want. They understand are needs unlike some other companies who dont know what we want in a game *cough Driv3rcough*

The taking over turf bit i was very excited about.. I mean if you dont want to do a mission and leave it for a while becuase its difficult to do. Then you can always just arse around with turf. I mean it adds to playability. Like in VC if you didn't want to do a mission they you were pretty limited on what you could do...except reak havoc. smile.gif

Im likin the Turf info. Do a drive-by on a couple of Ballas, take over that turf, then move on to Los Santos Vagos, take their turf. I will rule Los Santos, and San Andreas for that matter wink.gif , with an iron fist. And I like the idea that the retaliation attack will happen by the gang to take the power back. wink.gif I have to get the game first tho. laugh.gif laugh.gif

I was just thinking that! GTAIII > GTA: Vice City was awesome! Now GTA: Vice City > GTA: San Andreas looks to be unfuckin' believable!

Hell, I don't want to kill any kids, thats just way to screwed up.
Mister, will you bust a cap in my ass. Please, plus anyways as Mr. Dizzle said, we'd never see another GTA after san andreas. I thought it was confirmed that there was going to be livestock in the country. Could have sworn i read that somewhere...

There is not going to be cats or dogs in this game.
