GTA Chinatown Wars Hands On

GTA Chinatown Wars Preview

Last Wednesday we had a few hours to kill before our flights took off, so on Tuesday night Rockstar invited us to stop by the office the next day. Due to the number of us there, we split into two groups. Adam, Jev, Psy, and Chris went first since their flights were earlier and morning here is like afternoon in UK time. G-WizZ, Kodo, Zidane and I got to sleep in late (and lounge in the hotel lobby scaring tourists), then around lunch time we piled into a cab and headed over to the office. Having only seen the place from the outside during our last visit, it was great to finally make it past security and the legendary zombie-proof door. Had we just been there to hang out, this would have been cool enough by itself. But, no, the Rockstar guys had something even better in mind..

TLAD featured on GameTrailers TV

Posted by adamcs at 16:20. Category: General

This morning, The Lost and Damned was featured on a special episode of GameTrailers TV, featuring tons of new footage and in-depth analysis. If you didn't get a chance to catch it this morning, you can watch it now at

Luis in Three Leaf Clover.

The preview is broken into four chapters. Chapter 1 deals with characters, while Chapter 2 looks at the gameplay, Chapter 3 looks at missions, and Chapter 4 discusses the next DLC. Chapter 4 is of particular interest, since it more or less confirms that "Luis" is the main character of the next DLC. Of course, Rockstar refused to confirm or deny it, but their response appeared to suggest that it indeed will be the case. Luis - incase you are unaware - is the third person involved in the "Museum Piece" mission, and he also makes brief appearances during Three Leaf Clover and Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend.

Discuss your thoughts on the preview here, and discuss your thoughts on the possibility of Luis as the next main character here.

Oh, and be sure to come back next Wednesday/Thursday to hear our own thoughts on The Lost and Damned. No crap or journalistic spin! Just the honest opinions of GTA fans.
