I imagine you mean 480p?

My PS3 is set to display native (w/o upscaling) and the signal is saying 720p (the display is detecting a 720 signal and changing res). Is this documented somewhere?

nope, 640. the machine will only put out something like a standard 720, but the game as it plays IN THE BOX ITSELF is drawing at 640, the ps upgrades it as it outputs

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1024433

http://kotaku.com/385237/gta-iv-runs-at ... -that-mean

the kotaku article has a typo that says 630, but that's been fixed on all the other gamenerd sites . . .

i don't have a ps3 or a 360.

i stopped by a friends house and evaded the cops on a baggage cart for a long time.

this game makes house party one look like house party two.

i am going to have to knock over a liquor store. like right now.

for real.

so, am i the only one out there that thinks MADD wouldn't have such a valid complaint if the drunk-driving bits weren't the most fun parts of the game?



i do not trust michelle at all.

man, i HATE the drunk-driving parts. It's not like when your drunk and you turn the wheel left the car goes right (in real life)... but whatever.

my favorite thing to do is:
1. equip the knife
2. hold down the target button when there is no one to target.
3. rapidly tap the run button while continuing to hold down the target button. at this point, Nico will start hopping in an amusingly hilarious manner.
4. hop into the middle of the street and get a car to stop in front of you.
5. kick the headlights.
6. the driver will get out of the car. hop over to him/her and begin stabbing.
7. cars will start to back up. repeat the process of hopping-kicking-stabbing.

p.s. you have to hold down the target button for the whole time

also, i found that if you drive your motorcycle upstairs into your apartment and then get off the motorcycle and change clothes, the motorcycle will disappear and replace one of the cars in your parking spot. my attempt to save three vehicles failed.

i just noticed, on the station that iggy dj's for, he does a rant about how shitty he feels, and lists all of his rock-related injuries he's sustained over the years, including the shoulder-snafu from here in columbus.


i'm still so ashamed that we're the only city on earth who'd let iggy hit the ground during a stage dive . . .

Dude, I was there. He deserved to break his clavicle or whatever. He jumped right into a group of 17yr old girls who were there to see The Bloodhound Gang. How's that for a summer tour?

I'm on what I believe is the last mission, the one where you chase the dude in the boat while you're on the dirtbike. I've been stuck here for two weeks now. It one of those things that I can only go through once or twice before I get frustrated and quit.

Damnit. Maybe tonight will be the night.

That was the problem I had. I kept trying to go over the bridge to the right of the jump. Once I figured out that I needed to go the other way, I managed to beat it. I still have some of the extra stuff to finish.

Kind of a non-ending. I'm not surewhat I want really. I mean, dude just avenged his girlfriend's death, I guess he'd be a bit sullen.

One of the best video games ever.

the jump-the-motorcycle-to-catch-the-helicopter stunt just may have been my favorite action moment in ANY video game ever, and far and way the one that gave me the most movie-like FUCK YEAH moment.

i failed that final mission a good 2 dozen times, but finally pulling it together was as wicked as the promise of the entire GTA series all in one beautiful moment.

Has anyone downloaded the Lost and the Damned? It looks rad, but its kind of expensive, so I've held off.

That sucks. I'm on my 3rd Xbox at this point. The first one I sent back was lost by UPS and it took 4 months for me to get my shit back. The second one I got back in about a week.

So, if you got your xbox back, you need this buddy. Amazing.

So I beat this today. The end is a bit of a disappointment plot-wise. Best GTA ever. I'd rather have had a full Lost & The Damned than the Nico Bellic story.
