See its nice for other cities in the UK be used for inspiration instead of the same old London

I would love to see a game in an urban setting based on Newcastle, the night life would be a nice setting to used in my opinion....and no dont think of Geordie Shor, those arseholes are nothing like what you would find in Newcastle.

Please, everyone knows that the Geordie Shore lot are the pinnacle of Newcastle's populace.

It only goes downhill from there.
