New GTA IV info, shots

Lots of new stuff here via a German magazine and Neogaf. There’s some really nice art on those scans, so be sure to look. Apparently:

  • Missions are denoted on the map with a symbol and a suggested route (as in Saint’s Row).
  • Nico will apparently always have a helmet on while he rides a motorcycle.
  • The woman with the lollipop in the promotional posters is named Lola, and it’s hinted that she is a prostitute (Gordon Brown will be pleased).
  • Ammunition shops no longer exist (pretty sure this is old).
  • The default driving camera is lower and to the left, in order to be more realistic, but other options are available.
  • You can have a taxi drop you off anywhere in Liberty City, even at special locations such as restaurants and hospitals.
  • In one mission Nico is tasked with killing Mr Goldberg, a lawyer. During the cut-scene leading to his death, Goldberg says, “I don’t fear guns. You know, guns don’t kill people. Video games kill people.”

April 29 can’t happen soon enough.
