Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas

I got my Game Informer magazine in the mail today and on the cover is GTA San Andreas. It's got some black guy with some gangster glasses and a big ol gold chain and gold teeth on the cover LOL. The game acutally looks really cool. From what I have read so far the game is not based in just one city, but a whole state. The game area is about four to 6 times the size of GTAIII. When you move from coty to city there is countryside driving, mountains, deserts etc etc and even more cars including alot of "gangster" type cars ( Ie lowrider trucks and vert 63 Impala's) Also, now you'll be able to enter alot of the buildings and houses to do home invasions and robberies. This time it's set in the early 90's (Cali of course) at the height of the gang wars. Four person drive-by's, lol this article is hilarous.

San Andreas will be badass... there are 3 cities and each of them are the size of vice city. The main guy can swim, and you can get fat/skinny by what foods you eat, etc etc. It will be awesome.

LOL, glad I ain't the only one not too far on Vice City. I'm somewhere in the upper 40% completion area too. I have to borrow the PS2 from my brothers to play it.

Sweet, I can't wait to get it and never beat it I don't think i really have ever beat a game except Contra and Mario Bros.


On Vice City I did like 5% of the missions and my brother did most of all the other ones. But it still never got beat. I just went on alot of killing sprees and riding wheelies.

I've gotten to the point now where I just go get the attack helicopter from the army base in vice city and fly it around for a while, blowing up all sorts of stuff.

GTA:S.A. sounds like its going to be awesome. Hopefully it won't be as hard to find your way around like GTA:3 was. I almost pre-ordered one a couple months back, but I figured I'll just wait til it comes out to get it.

I've already beaten all the Vice City missions about 3 times. I've gotten the last game I played up to 99%, but no matter what I do, I can't get to 100% Oh well, it's still the funnest game I've played, and still my favorite.

did you ever use cheats and then end up saving after that?

Nope, I only used cheat codes the first time I played the game.

I've beaten it the last 2 times without using any at all.

LOL, I must be really lousy at the game because there is NO way I could possibly beat the game without the cheat codes. Even with the cheat codes I broke a few controllers from temper tantrums.

I'm really exicted about the new GTA. There is going to be a TON more new stuff. The storyline and new characters are no where near as cheesy as "Tommy Vercitti" (not to mention his annoying celebrity voice of Ray Liotta from Goodfellas fame)

Now you'll be able to load up your whole crew in one car and do drive-bys LOL. Just what the younger generation needs right? A training tool for chaos.

I never use cheat codes. I don't beat every game I play, but I did beat Vice City, however, i've only finished 85% of it.
