GTA IV - update, 32% done

Filed under: GTA IV — admin @ 10:00 pm

Sorry ’bout the lack of updates the last couple of weeks. I’ve been to frekkin’ busy playing GTA IV! It’s truly awesome! So far, I’ve done about 32% of the game according to the ingame sats, just a third of the way to complete the game, but my guess is that I’m probably half way through the main mission part, all the small things that takes a lot of time has to be completed too after the main missions.


Here’s a list of thing you can do while playing the main missions to help you on your way to 100% :

  • Shoot pigeons, the red glowing ones. These are probably required for 100%
  • Go online, date… a lot! Different women can help you in different ways later on.
  • The paint shops aren’t as useful as in previous games, you can not be spotted on the way in to them!
  • Hot dogs are gooood.
  • Being drunk might be fun but annoying.
  • Try swiming with your date…

Hope this might help your hunt for the 100%! Write a comment if you got any more tips.

Rockstar Social Club

Filed under: GTA IV, Xbox — Tags: , , — admin @ 9:06 pm

Rockstar has just opened it’s “Social Club”, a community aimed at GTA IV-players. It will keep statistics about players progress (who has finished the game first, who has walked the longest distance), about the city (which area has the highest criminality etc).

This can be very nice, if Rockstar manages to keep the community at an appropriate level. There’s always a risk (as in all communities) that some people have a destructive behaviour and take things way to seriously. Let’s hope that Rockstar can pull this off, this really has the potential to be great!

See ya there!

GTA IV: First person to complete all missions

Filed under: Other — admin @ 12:45 pm

Rob Taylor, deputy editor of Xbox World 360 magazine, is the first person in the world (outside of Rockstar-staff) that has completed all missions in Grand Theft Auto 4. He has been interviewed by Games Radar and gives his view on the game.

Believe me, GTA IV is even better than the hype suggests!

What can I say, I’m freaking envious!

GTA IV: Hands-on

Filed under: GTA IV — admin @ 4:57 pm

Brian Crecente of Kotaku has had the changce to do a little test-play of Grand Theft Auto 4. He seems to really like the aiming and shooting parts of the game, saying they are more like an fps then earlier games in the series.

Moving down the roof, not so gracefully, I scramble to some cover and switch over to an assault rifle. The game plays fast, letting you pop off shots quickly and precisely. I take out a couple of people with the simple lock-on. Emptying bullets into the bad guys until they drop, and then I slow down and take my time with the loose lock-on, shifting my aim to focus on headshots.

FM2: What the hell is the Apex anyway?!

Filed under: Forza Motorsport 2 — Tags: , , — admin @ 8:51 pm

Alright, so now when I’m getting more and more into the racing aspects of life I hear more and more racing-terms I don’t know about. One that’s pretty common is the apex. I’ve been doing some research about the matter and have learned quite a bit.

The Apex, in short, is the spot where your car is the closest to the inside edge of the turn. It’s not a fixed point in the turn, you choose your own spot to be your apex. Depending on what kind of racing-driver you are you might push the apex back och pull it closer to the start of the turn.

If the apex is pushed away from the geometrical center of the turn (later in the turn), it’s sometimes call a racing apex. This is considered the best and fastest line to follow while racing. You will get a more strait line in the end of the turn and you will be able to accelerate earlier, and get a higher exit speed.


When drifting, the front of the car should be pointed at the apex to enable a high degree drift. This will make the car take up as much of the road as possible to keep your opponents from overtaking you. This is something I have yet to learn, and as soon as I am a drifting pro, I will write an article on how to drift with ease.

FM2: March car pack

Filed under: Forza Motorsport 2, News — admin @ 1:06 pm

The March car pack has been available for some time now. I haven’t got them yet, because I’m too poor and lazy to get some ms points, but I really feel like it’s time to invest in some new rides…

There are a lot of interesting cars in the pack, the Audi S5 is one of the. Looks absolutely gorgeous and is a monster of a car. Looks like a normal Audi A5, but is packed with racing tech and power. Wouldn’t say no to one of those on my driveway!

And then there’s the Maserati GranTurismo, just as great looking as the british beasts Jaguar and Aston Martin, but with some hot temper Italian blood. A compact 405 hp V8 is located at the front of the car, behind the fron axle, resulting in 51/49% weight distribution, not perfect but as good as it gets in a front engine car.

Here’s a complete list of the cars: (more…)
