Has anyone checked out the radio stations in GTA Vice City? Music and video games are just so in bed with each other right now. What's the best band / game match-up you've heard... or would like to hear?

Boy How is the game? I love GTA series - only problem we get it really late (in India) and is the PC version available?

(I believe this is the wrong forum to post it )

Sue, this is a video game (based on sony playstation) - when driving a car (while playing), you can switch on Radio and listen to different type of music.

Yes, the game is mind-blowing. The radio station lineup is fantastic - there must be over 100 songs from the early 80s on about 7 different types of stations... in a GAME, for crying out loud. It's unbelievable.

Have you guys seen the new Adema / Mortal Kombat video on MTV? Yet another example of this type of integration... the game actually has more video time than the band! the game looks incredible too. Hard to believe how far we've come since Pong.

So does this thread belong in the Games forum or the Music Cellar? Help!

OMG, I can't explain how much of a GTA fan I am! I did 100% in part three, and i'm looking everywhere for Vice City, but it is sold out EVERYWHERE. There's a soundtrack that came out with Vice City, guess how many cd's are in it.....SEVEN, seven set cd soundtrack for a video game. These are real songs, From Michael Jackson to Judas Priest.

Don't forget about the Tony Hawk Pro Skater seriers, they have many songs also.

By the way, I didn't know there was a game forum, where is it?

I pre-ordered my copy a few months before it came out for that very reason - I can't STAND going to the store and they're OUT of what I went all the way there to get.

If there are any other games you want, I recommend ordering them from the official site long before they come out. That way, you also have plenty of time to set aside the $50 you're gonna throw down to buy it.

I might get Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance in advance just on the merit of that MTV video. I've always been a fan of the series anyway, but the new one looks better by far than the previous few. Fortunately, if you don't have TV you can still see it at the official MK Site - there is a sreen of Sub-Zero that is so well done I use it for my desktop wallpaper.

I'm about 90% sure it will be on PC. The last one was.

Please don't fight over such trivial matters - PC VERSION is always the best!!!

I agree - flying the Dodo was such a pain - I managed a best time for 2 minutes! (it's harder to fly that in PC version {I want to believe that}.
I heard choppers are integral part of missions - so I guess flying will be a lot easier this time!

Wow, two minutes, I can never do that.
Although I prefer doing the flying cheat code which lets you fly using any car, then getting a tank, and turning the cannon backwards and use it as power to fly.

Well I remember I left 2 off -road missions - the landstalker one and the patriot one at shoreside; God I just love this game!

I have seen a friend (who became a pro at flying dodo) fly the Dodo all the way back to Import-Export garage at Portland (for delivery)!
