Rockstar’s Imran Sarwar has said that GTA IV’s downloadable episodes were “part of the plan from the beginning”, and Niko’s story was designed to “make him feel like a small part of a much larger world.”
“Even at the end of [Niko's] story, he’s not the king of the town by any means, ” the associate producer told CVG. “The idea was to use the episodes to reveal the rest of that world, to show some of the characters and events that were invisible to Niko and yet still had a bearing on events in his life.
“I think if we had [put all on one disc] it would have been impossible to focus on each separate aspect of gameplay properly, the stories and the gameplay are inextricably linked.
“We’ve always maintained that Liberty City is the real star of these games, and what makes it truly amazing is that it’s so full of potential as an environment.”
The last bit of DLC for the game, The Ballad of Gay Tony, is out now.

Rockstar has released a new video for The Ballad of Gay Tony.
It’s basically a comedy sketch of sorts, what with it being a fake news report – which is part of a television bit appearing in the new DLC.
“A Weazel News Special Report: Guns in Liberty City”
In this Weazel news exclusive, Weazel’s crack team of investigative reporters and former lobbyists cut through the filter of the mainstream media to find the paranoia behind the truth to a recent string of attacks in Liberty City, which has forced the LCPD into an escalating arms race. Our Weazel News expert demonstrates these fearsome new weapons including sticky bombs, advanced sniper rifles, automatic shotguns and exploding bullets; while recently discovered footage from a Liberty City tourist appears to show a rocket-equipped military grade helicopter known only as ‘The Buzzard’ wreaking havoc in Liberty City airspace.
Fun stuff there.
CVG has the video. Go watch.

Rockstar’s confirmed a September 1 date for the first Gay Tony trailer.
Hopefully it’ll feature that woman with the champagne. The MS US po-faces must be having little heart attacks over their exclusive gay bottle-wanking game. Serves them right.

Microsoft has said that it’s still working on ways for gamers to express their sexual orientation without it being taken “overboard”.
While speaking with Kotaku, VP of Xbox Live, John Schappert, told the site that while GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony was okay to use in its sexual context, gay gamer tags are still an issue being sorted.
“I think the two are very separate issues,” said Schappert. “That said, [Xbox Live head of standards enforcement] Stephen [Toulouse] continues to work with our team and we continue to look for ways for people to personally express themselves and you can look for more features coming to Xbox Live, but nothing to announce right now. They’re working on some of that stuff and the community has been very involved.
“We try to walk the fine line where we do the right thing to allow people to express themselves but not have it be taken overboard.
“I can say that we are working on that issue.”
