Rockstar are certainly making up for the months fans waited without any news on GTA IV by giving us a lot of stuff to enjoy over the past week or so. Today, Yahoo have posted a developer diary which details part of how Rockstar Games and Rockstar North have created Liberty City. The article includes some screenshots side-by-side with their real life counterpart, along with 4 new screenshots.
Epic, epic, epic, epic, epic.
Did i mention this is fucking epic?
Those screens are simply amazing...
R*'s Lady liberty pwns real life one...
Plus, this confirms weazel (The TV station taking the piss outta fox that we also heard on the radio in LCS?)
Just the detail on the shots is incredible, and the side-by-side comparisons are equally as good. I actually thought they'd make the Statue of Liberty a bit more jokey than that, seeing as they like parodying things. If you can go on the Screamer, I wonder if you can throw people out their seats...? I need a next-gen console now dammit. Good shots, as always.
Three new GTA 4 screenshots from Hungarian GTA's website:
They were cool according to me!
The best thing about this article is that it points out how the graphics are merely the tip of the iceberg & what's really going to set this game apart is the level of realism & immersion that will be possible. It's going to be the little differences & the attention to detail, which will make GTA IV so much more enjoyable than the previous titles (I'm hoping).
I really want this to be a game that I can keep going back to, because unfortunately I don't think SA was. Once the missions were all done, there wasn't much left to do except start the storyline over again.
if u look at the one with times square its got a billboard that says WEAZEL news, and weazelnews.com, mayb thats a site we'll be able to visit ingame!
