Feb 17, 2009 buttrock.gif

Impressions here:

Looks fucking awesome, totally worth $20.
Just got done playing the first hour or so. Pretty awesome so far. The voice acting and animation are just as good as the proper game, they didn't really hold back with this DLC. One of the early cutscenes is fucking BRUTAL too, these biker dudes don't fuck around.
Good to hear that they went all the way with this. I really wouldn't expect anything less from Rockstar and they're GTA titles, especially one of this caliber. One question, is there still a lot of that going out with your homies shit in there? As much as I love seeing American titties with Roman that shit got a little stale after doing 20 times.
Not as far as I can tell.

They have a new mechanic where your "crew" has experience bars, and the more gunfights they get in and win, the better they become. If a member of the gang dies then they are dead forever and get put up on the "memorial wall" inside the Lost's gang clubhouse, and you get a new recruit for your posse. Right from the start you already have gang members that can bring you a bike if you lose yours, drive up with a weapons van, etc.

Since the setting for this story has the main character already established as a high ranking member of his gang, you don't need to do the "footwork" like in previous GTA's, building your reputation and such.

Also it already has had a tie in to the main GTA4 story, one of the biker dudes I ran a mission with is the same guy that was sleeping with that russian crime boss's daughter, who Niko had to kill in an early mission buttrock.gif
New GTA4 DLC expansion announced. "The Ballad of Gay Tony". Coming this Fall to 360, 1600 MS points. This confirms the theory that the "Impossible Trinity" bank heist mission ties all 3 DLC lead characters together.

Rockstar Games Announces Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony for Download on Xbox LIVE® and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City Available on Disc for Xbox 360® this Fall

Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce the fall release of both the second episode of Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony - exclusively for download on Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network, and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, which will include both episode one The Lost and Damned, and episode two The Ballad of Gay Tony together on a single disc exclusively for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

"Liberty City is the most vibrant game world we've created yet. The episodic structure has allowed us to interweave stories, gameplay and atmosphere in a whole new way," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "The team at Rockstar North have yet again surpassed themselves, and made something that is both epic and very innovative. This episode's focus on high-end night life contrasts with the biker gangs portrayed in The Lost and Damned, whilst giving us a lot of new gameplay possibilities."

Grand Theft Auto IV's second downloadable episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and grime. As Luis Lopez, part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (aka "Gay Tony"), players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City delivers two games on one disc - the all-new episode The Ballad of Gay Tony and the first episode, The Lost and Damned - together on disc for the first time - for Xbox 360 for $39.99 and will not require a copy of the original Grand Theft Auto IV to play.

The Ballad of Gay Tony will release on Xbox LIVE this fall for $19.99 or 1600 MS points and requires players to have Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE membership to download.
