No Carl Johnson in Vice City Stories

Posted by adamcs at 16:34. Category: General

I think this was fairly obvious anyway, but it's always nice to have confirmation. Jordan from our partnersite PlanetGTA, was able to get in touch with Young Maylay (who voiced Carl in GTA San Andreas) and confirm that he will not be playing any part in GTA: Vice City Stories.

Linkage.

Upcoming Previews

Posted by adamcs at 17:31. Category: General

So when will we learn about the plot/setting/character (etc) details of Vice City Stories? This week, I fired off a few emails to find out who will be previewing it, and most importantly when.

First I got in touch with PSM2, who claim they've already seen the game (just a few days ago) and that they'll have "shots and details" in an issue which is due to be on sale 31st August. I also spoke with the editor of GamesMaster, and they too have a preview planned, though they're not sure what's going to be in it yet because they've yet to speak with Rockstar. This issue is on sale 1st September.

Both are UK magazines, so if you're living in the UK then be sure to pick up a copy of each on the dates listed above, where all will be revealed about GTA:VCS. Stay tuned for more updates.

Artwork Gallery Updated

flore (from our forums) has done a good job of extracting/tidying up the artwork contained in the official boxart which was released yesterday. Check it out..

More Boxart Analysis

Posted by adamcs at 13:04. Category: General

After further inspection, I noticed the two characters at the bottom bare a close resemblance to Colonel Cortez and his right hand man Gonzales. In GTA Vice City, Cortez was forced to leave the city after running into problems with the French, and his no.2 Gonzales was killed during the mission "Treacherous Swine". This means that - if these two characters are definitely who I think they are - then Vice City Stories is set prior to GTA Vice City (late 70s, early 80s perhaps?). Also the fact that Gonzales has a full head of hair in the boxart (whereas in GTA Vice City, he doesn't) supports this theory.


Cortez & Gonzales

In addition, saintdave from our forums noticed a similarity between the girl that's standing next to the car, and Laura Shrub:


Laura Shrub

Mrs. Shrub is the wife of congressman Alex Shrub (who featured in the mission "Martha's Mug Shot" in GTA Vice City) and as you can see in the comparison picture above, the hair style and body build etc. is exactly the same, so Mrs. Shrub will - without a doubt - make an appearance in Vice City Stories.

Discuss.

GTA: Vice City Stories Boxart Released

Posted by adamcs at 22:52. Category: General

R* have just released the boxart for Vice City Stories, see below.

GTA Vice City Stories Boxart

Observations: I'm pretty sure the guy on the left is Umberto Robina (Cuban leader) and I'm also sure the guy at the top is not Mitch Baker (that's not to say he won't be in the game, however). Also, judging by the colourful clothing etc. I think it's safe to say we're still in a 1980s setting.. (or possibly 70s?)
