Hello, I’m a web craftsman with a passion for the modern web. I build web applications and play with social services and communities.
Niko Bellic, the beloved immigrant to Liberty City from East Europe shows some very American behaviour:
To recover his life, Niko has to eat. There is plenty of choice in Liberty City to pick up a hamburger, hot dog and such as. But one thing Rockstar didn’t want Niko to eat is healthy home-made food. It’s not like Niko has no opportunity to eat home-made food. He’s got a fridge and there is even food on the counter, ready to eat. But even desperate L1-key hitting doesn’t help. He really doesn’t pick it up. To bad since you load/safe every game from his accommodation. Is this the American dream?
Check the updated GTVIV page including different media to present Liberty City’s key inhabitants and companies.
Impressive for me personally is the way they present in-game companies. They get own brands and ads (including jingles). Each of them would keep a designer busy for several days and they [Rockstar] put that effort on every single virtual brand. love-meet.net belongs to an in game single-website for example. This game will deliver endless hours of gameplay. That is for sure. Can’t wait to get my hands on!
A lot of people don’t like this ad. I think it’s wonderful! Especially that part with “Tech-nology that updates itself”.
