Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony is currently outselling Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and the Damned on the Playstation Store.
Not suprising.. BoGT is better than Vanilla GTA4 and TLAD in almost every way.
Yh, I heard TBoGT was more fun so i bought it and didn't buy TLaD
But yea I would say Ballad is the better game. Story, missions, there's just more to do. I would recommend it over Lost if you want to choose. Money being a concern.
WTF... does those examiner people really classify this as news?
Examiner = pretty much any dbag can comment and post crap which is then submitted as "news" Sorry that was disrespectful. As a witch I should respect others. But I'm not going to erase my comment because I want people to know what the apology is for.
I only bought TBoGT and man was that a great episode. And concerning The Examiner and this article, I'm glad they wrote it. Yeah it is just a report of what the PSN has up but hey, if it weren't this I wouldn't have known.
A Coven would refer to a male as Warlock. Your profile says you are male. But this isn't the place for a discussion like that. It just caught my eye is all. Blessed Be
Well, warlock is not a term used these days. Blessed Be
I'm getting both this week at some point, been replaying GTA4 and forgot how good it was. I might even platinum it if I can get the time, multiplayer trophies might hold me back though, not much of a mp player really.
I have all the trophies for GTA4 proper, except for the Wanted Trophy. I don't feel like grinding for 40+ hours for it.
GTA IV is very difficult game to platinum because of the multiplayer, its very time consuming.
Hmm, yeah I was reading about that one, sounds like a bit of a b1tch to get. I thought at first the Rockstar one would be the hardest, but as I understand it (from what I've read anyway) you have to beat someone with that trophy, or someone from Rockstar, am I right?
Which makes them pretty much impossible to get. Also, Lost and Damned at least had a superior story and main character compared to Ballad Of Gay Tony.
I've platinum'd GTA IV, the online trophies took well over 70 hours if I remember correctly. Find a good partner and its fine. Good Luck!
and I replayed GTAIV to at least finish the game as I know platinum will be impossible at this point but is the damn game boring as hell! I stopped playing after forcing myself through about 25 hours and I'm still at 51%! "go there kill this guy" - flush and repeat for almost all the time really killed it for me! no wonder I stopped playing it not so long ago after I got it! now, I don't even feel to get the BD version anymore! I think, playing the main game again was a HUGE mistake!
As someone who totally respected Rockstar for trying to do something different with GTA 4 by going for realism and standing out from the dozens of silly over the top open world games that sprung up since they invented the genre, also speaking as someone who was way more interested in experiencing the story of a biker gang member more than a the story of a modern hedonistic nightclub bouncer with douchebag hair, I still have to say the Ballad of Gay Tony is amazing and by far the best GTA I've played since Vice city. The dialogue is the best I've ever heard in a GTA game, the characters are brilliant. Most of all though I like the fact that the way the city looks doesn't make me want to slit my wrists, it actually feels like a nice place to be. I think they finally found the perfect mix of realism and fun. You have to suspend your disbelief a little more than usual when you can walk away calmly without a wanted level after just killing dozens of swat members and blowing up a helicopter but after playing it you won't get the feeling like you've just been experiencing boring everyday life through the eyes of a depressed garbage man.
These do not require GTAIV to play. At least the retail version, shouldn't be any different for the downloads. [email protected] aphe: I bought the Blu-Ray version and it doesn't need GTAIV, says right on the back of the box. edit2: oh damn ok, guess it is different for the downloads. Yea I wasn't much help at all.
I'm pretty sure you do need to have GTA4. I don't think they're standalone.
The GTA 4 disc is required to play the downloaded versions.
You could just download GTA IV too? does PSN have the full GTA IV? I haven't checked it in a while, but Xbox Live has a huge library of on demand titles.
So much for trying to offer a concise question...
No you need the GTA IV disc, and a finished save file if you want to download them, but if you want to buy them on the EFLC disc you don't need the GTA IV disc. Ali, GTA IV is not on the PSN Store.
This mean, all PS3 gamers are Gay? just kidding... I liked more Ballad of gay Tony.. really
lol was gona say the same question, havnt played any of the dlc's though.
Isn't the Lost and the Damned the one where they show d*ck? Both expansion packs seem to play to the homosexuals.
if you honestly try to argue that the ballad of gay tony is a superior story/gameplay experience to lost and damned, then the world really IS going to come to an end in 2012, because at this rate, the abundance of sh1t that's being shoveled in the world of gaming, first with everyone arguing that san andreas was the best gta, and now the ballad of gay tony being the best, when CLEARLY gtaIII, vice, and lost and damned where the superior in theme, character, and most importantly GAMEPLAY! yea ok, i get it, you like the parachute and the weapons, but who the fuc% wants to play as some illiterate spanish douchebag who's constantly trying to prove how tough he is. johnny kleibitz was one of the best main characters since tommy vercetti and fido from III, not to mention Billy from lost and damned was one of the hardest characters in any gta. i really dont understand why people are going for the low brow gangster/gang banger sh1t. that kind of stereotype is the reason that our society is becoming the fuc%ing cespool it is nowadays. if i wanted to see a stupid cholo gang member trying to act tough, then i can just look outside my fuc%ing window and watch as they cruise around in their "tricked" out cars and oversized t-shirts. as far as i'm concerned, it's not entertaining and i sure as hell dont want to simulate that kind of lifestyle. and if your gonna argue that there's more "content" like stealing tv's and riding bikes and skydiving, then i suggest you go play saints row or just cause 2, both are superior in giving you outrageous sh1t to do. all i can say is that gta5 better be an 80's style vice city/la setting, or something with a character creation option, because i'll never buy and support a game that idolizes and supports those stereotypes. thats it i'm done. now get the fuc% out of my office.
everyone has different tastes and opinions for games. There was no need for that big wall you've posted. Your comments are not worth my computer screen from here on out. Welcome to Ignore.
Summary - treeson47 doesn't agree.
Wtf dude? Yu got a man crush on Johnny or sumthin? Its called having an opinion, not all people have the same. Are you aware of this? Need I further explain?
*Moves mouse cursor* *Ignore* *Add to ignore list* *Done* :)
OP is crazy.
Yes because the lifestyle depicted in Lost of the Damned is soooooooo much better, right? I wish young people would get rid of the hip hop influence and become more like the bikers in this game. As said above, you have the right to prefer the other GTA games, no need to lecture us about how we suck because we prefer to actually have fun while playing a GTA game.
I like that he says gameplay is most important and then when he begins to talk about gameplay, he says you should play Saints Row or Just Cause 2 instead. It came across more racist than anything else.
Put the gun down man, come on. Nobody wants this. We're your friends. You don't have to do this, man.
but thats just me, Or not buy at all for giving it to 360 first. Im not a revenge seeker so I'll pick it up later
just wait till its used then u'll be savin $$$ :D
waits for the inevitable "ps3 users are gayer than xbox users" comments....
Not surprising at all, Ballad of Gay Tony was easily the best of the two. At some point Rockstar where supposed to be making 2 more (this year) but it seems they decided not to go forward with that, a shame because I would have picked them up for sure.
I prefer Lost and Damned but at least the DLC was good.GTA4 imo was boring
I'll be picking up the actual disc version of stories from Liberty City. Even though I upgraded my PS3 hard drive to 500 gigs, I still like having the physical product over downloads. With that being said, I think Rockstar did an exceptional job with the main game and both DLC. It's hard to pick and choose which one is better because both DLC and the main game are part of a collective vision. You have the main Game with Niko where you can experience everything and the great story. Then you go with the Biker gang and really get to experience the bikes and that story. And then you have TBOGT where you can experience over top gameplay with parachutes and tanks and they even introduced a scoring system at the end of the of each mission. It's hard to pick which one is better because you really are suppose to play all three combined. It's really one game.
well if i was just gonna buy 1 i'd get BoGT. will prob get round to buying both over summer tho
I will pick up the Blu-ray version when the price comes down. Still haven't really played through GTA 4 to be in any rush. I think I played like 1 or 2 missions. I got too many games. LOL
parachutes are fun.
Everyone said this will not sell rofl. So now, we can all say its a good game.
