GamesTM VCS Preview

gamestm-vcs-preview.jpgAs I'm sure you were aware when we posted yesterday, GamesTM is available today in the UK, and we now have more information on Vice City Stories thanks to their preview.

  • Sea planes and helicopters will be included, this probably includes the Skimmer and Sea Sparrow we all know from the original Vice City
  • Philip Michael Thomas, who voices Lance Vance is "the only confirmed voice talent" at the moment
  • Binoculars will be available at all times, rather than just being available on one or two missions like the camera was in Vice City.
  • Jet skis will have completely different handling to boats, as is expected
  • Different pedestrians will appear at different times of day. For example, you'll see people partying late at night, and bums early in the morning scouring the streets
  • Phil Cassidy is to return. GamesTM say he appears in one of the game's loading screens.
  • The city features enhanced dynamic lighting effects, essentially making Vice City look a nicer place.
  • A brand new Rocket Launcher will be available for your everyday general explosive needs

Unfortunately we can't post scans as we'd be breaching the copyright, however, our friends at VCS:PSP have posted some nice high quality ones you can look at for the moment, not sure how long they'll be up though.

Cool, can't wait to test out the new Rocket Launcher. Good to know that Philip Michael Thomas is back to voice Lance. Binocolulars will probably be useful at times. Overall, I can't wait for VCS.

Well I dunno really, what the hell will we use the binoculars for? I mean we can't shoot with them, it's not like it's a sniper rifle. If it's just to look around then why not have a camera where we can take pics and save to memory stick?

Yeah I was thinking of that too (but I guess at the time I thought they might be useful, somehow...), why would you need binoculars if all you can do is see really far? If it was a camera it would be more fun and useful.

I can't wait for this to come out,and when it does get released I bet you 0 that edison carter will be active with more cheat devices for us.

Maybe, although I heard he said it wouldn't be possible because Rockstar will have fixed the loophole in LCS, or that VCS will require the latest firmware which as well know buggers up the cheat device and yo can't use it then...

Binocaulars would probably have a better zoom function than the camera. And peds changing was in GTA! For example, you dont see any bikini peds in VC at night
