Nope, it's just a game.
Only petty crimes.
Stealing has become a hobby.

Watch The Ballad of Gay Tony on GameTrailers TV!

Posted by adamcs at 08:01. Category: Ballad of Gay Tony

The latest episode of GameTrailers TV, which was aired today featuring exclusive new footage of The Ballad of Gay Tony, is now available to watch online.

The episode is divided into several chapters and contains an interview with Rockstar's Jeronimo Barrera:

Chapter 1: 00:00-04:45 - Story and Characters
Chapter 2: 04:45-10:00 - Missions and Gameplay
Chapter 3: 10:00-15:30 - Multiplayer
Chapter 4: 10:00-15:30 - Beyond GTA IV

Rockstar didn't reveal much new information during the interview, but they were able to clarify some points. The only major new piece of info is that there's a new dance radio station hosted by Crookers. Here's a summary of the main details:

  • Luis has to make tough decisions. Right off the bat, he must decide whether he wants to help his mother or help Gay Tony.
  • The gameplay is more focused on combat, whereas in GTA IV and The Lost and Damned the focus was more on using vehicles.
  • You can't shoot from parachutes, but you can shoot other parachutists as they are coming down.
  • The previous episode, The Lost and Damned, contained a yellow-ish sky filter. The Ballad of Gay Tony features a pink/purple-ish filter.
  • Some vehicles are equipped with nitrous (but not all) which should make races more interesting.
  • As mentioned, a new dance radio station is available hosted by Crookers - an Italian DJ/production duo.
  • The Ballad of Gay Tony is definitely the last episode in the GTA IV saga (this point has been emphasized before, but some people refuse to accept it!)

Rockstar drops soundtrack hints

Posted by adamcs at 17:41. Category: Ballad of Gay Tony

As the title says...

"This [Grand Theft Auto cover art reference] randomly found online from New York's DJ Rei Double R is quite timely though – with a Dominican bachata driven tracklist that sounds like something Luis Lopez and his uptown pana's Armando & Henrique might be blasting in their car.

"Might a couple of these artists appear on The Ballad of Gay Tony’s soundtrack? Hmm..."

New Mini-Trailer: Armando and Henrique

Posted by adamcs at 19:28. Category: Ballad of Gay Tony

IGN has posted a new mini-trailer for The Ballad of Gay Tony. The trailer focuses on two of the game's characters, Armando Torres and Henrique Bardas. A high-definition version can be viewed by selling your soul subscribing to IGN Insider.

Here is some info to accompany the trailer:

"Armando and Henrique are two of Luis Lopez's oldest friends. They grew up together, went to school together, and got in a lot of trouble together. Henrique isn't too bright, but he's big, tough, dependable and knows how to use a gun. Armando's a little guy who talks a big game, and considers himself the brains of the operation - not difficult given his partner in crime. Armando, in particular, resents Luis for getting out of the neighborhood and above his station, but Henrique and Armando remain fiercely loyal to Luis and always have his back.

"Luis can call on his friends whenever he needs weapons and vehicles, or back-up on certain missions. Armand and Henrique are always around to engage in other activities, whether it's visiting the clubs, hitting some bars or heading to the driving range for some golf."

UPDATE: High-def version now available @ Rockstar's website.
