I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

DAILY MANIFESTO

More To The GTA 4 Story

Posted on Friday, March 30 @ 18:38:44 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Alright, so some days every single video game website looks the damn same. However, unlike everyone else, our GTA trailer has no trans fats and will get you chicks. In truckloads.

Maybe I can shed a bit more light on the subject than that.

First off, the timing of the video release was clearly designed to distract people from the fiesty Take 2 shareholders meeting yesterday. At least they finally got rid of that Paul Eibeler crook.

Second, that trailer was designed to mimic Koyaanisqatsi, the ultimate stoner film. It even uses the same Philip Glass music. Neat.

Finally, I lived in New York City for six years, and it looked to me like Liberty City is trying to get closer (a lot closer) to the real New York. I recognized a number of the real life New York locations in that trailer - exact copies. The Met Life building, the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island... they're really getting detailed.

And Coney Island is certainly the right location for a Russian gangster story. Brighton Beach, right next door to Coney, is all Russian. None of the signs are in English, nobody speaks a word of English, and the faucets flow with vodka. Well, almost.

My wife, Miranda, and I used to love to take the F train to Brighton, find a restaurant (they're all super-cheap) and just point at random things on the Russian menu to see what showed up. Usually really tasty dumplings, potatoes, or herring of one kind or another. The house-made cherry juice is free, and you just order however many centiliters of vodka you want - it comes in a big carafe.
