Ladies of Liberty City
The biggest controversy since GTA finally hit stores. This time round, there’s full–on sex in the game, which comes as part and parcel of its own mission. There’s a rather saucy hook up with two other ladies, but we won’t go into details. Safe to say that Roman’s promise that Liberty City offers all you’d ever want is kind of true.
Your phone will save your life
Your mobile’s your lifeline in GTA IV. And it’s also awesome for snaffling things you don’t fancy working hard for. Fancy a police chopper? Just dial FLY-555-0100 (359-555-0100). Want a slew of new weapons, including Taliban favourite, the RPG? Call GUN-555-0150 (486-555-0100). You can even change the weather and make it harder for Niko to escape the cops.
Shooting pigeons is okay
In the quest for ever more bizarre ways to get 100 per cent completion, this time round you have to kill off two hundred pigeons. They can all be found via the online maps mentioned above. Oh and once you get into the Statue of Happiness, you’ll find a beating heart. You know, just because.
The web browser is pretty revealing
The in–game browser is perfect for making life easier. You’ll find stacks of maps telling you where to find those pigeons, as well as armour, health spots and even perverts. Always handy when you’re after a bit of nooky or just want to exercise some rough justice. Just tap in www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com.
You don’t need to pay your way
Spent all your cash on that sawn off shottie have you? Nee matter. Just jump in an emergency vehicle (being careful to leg it quick smart before the heat are all over you) and you can cross toll bridges without having to stick your hand in the pocket of those Eastern European jeans you’re rocking.
Your wardrobe gets a tourist makeover
Clothes from the local emporium kind of suck, so if you fancy getting a new tee early on, head to the Island of Happiness. Head in via the south door and when you come out you’ll have a neat new tee, saying Land is...Happiness. Mind you, not quite a howies weekly one is it?
