I decided to play a 12 year old game again. It has been fun until this iconic mission.
Why can't Big Smoke aim better?
You just suck at games.
t. completer of this mission on turn 1-2 tops
About to try it for the 6th time.
Maybe I am just a busta.
I swear to god I never had any problems with this mission in all the runs I had with this game and never understood this meme
And I'm not a good video game player
Because he's a traitor, remember?
The worst missions are with the RC plane. The thing is almost impossible to control
I really hate it when I keep failing missions and they play the same dialog over and over and over. Might be good writing the first time around, but every repetition makes it grating, annoying, and mocking.
GTA games are too long
t. quit GTAV after like 25 hours gameplay
It would have been good if it ended at 20 hours or so with free DLC story later. Playing like 60 hours of a single player game at once is overwhelming
I never really understood that meme. I had some problems with some missions, but that one I don't even remember, I must have completed it first time through.
Drive on the same level as the guy you're shooting at but on the far side of the track. Then smoke will actually hit the bad guys instead of the train/miss
Bonus points if the savepoint is right before an unskippable cutscene.
I liked how in IV there were two different dialogs for nearly every mission, then on the third one I think they kept quiet as far as I remember.
While a smaller game, which had its problems, IV had some really nice touches that it was clear the developers really put thought into. In V one of the biggest things I missed from IV is how you could knock someone out with melee put not kill them.
>Why can't Big Smoke aim better?
Big Smoke is actually working with the Ballas that's why he does his best to sabotage the Grove Street and to crush CJs spirit by being a poor shot. And one time when I was smoking funny cigarettes I also realized that this was the reason he was busy "eating food" in that mission where cj, ryder, sweet and him go to the drive thru and are intercepted by ballas.
I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.
Drive at the edge of the neighboring rail.
Problems weren't, my big smoke complimented me.
wtf are you cheating? where do you have smg from?
Piss easy mission. All you need to do is to follow the damn train. Zero and flying missions are much harder imo. I guess the train mission works as a casual filter so they never even get to the harder parts.
The one with RC heli is easy, though. Probably even easier than the one in VC.
I completed this missions in the 6th try. You need to keep a certain distance from the train. There is an elevated portion, in or before the tunnel if I'm not mistaken, which is perfect.
The worst mission is with the RC helicopter where you have to bomb tanks and escort a car through the battlefield. It's not that hard but it's so boring
Those are not mandatory though.
You don't have to buy guns, you can find them in hidden locations all over the city
I remember my kid brother begging me to play through the RC heli missions in Vice city and SA. Never got why those are so hard especially since he knew how helicopters were controlled in that game.
It just occurred to me this playthrough as well.
It had a nice atmosphere. A big problem with it is that it lacked the goofy, over the top events like stealing a jetpack from area 51.
All the games set in Liberty City seem to be grey and somber, while LA and Miami are whacky adventures.
This game has so many interesting moments.
No not cheating. I kept it from that mission where you stop the Balla/Russian arms trade.
>Why can't Big Smoke aim better?
Drive up close to the train and then jerk suddenly away. The bike will be at an angle that gives Smoke clearer shots on the enemies on top of the train.
It wasn't until imageboards that I discovered that this mission was supposed to be hard for people.
The whole government/conspiracy/aliens subplot is so damn cool
This, it triggers just to remember.
The fucking fuel that would run out ridiculously fast and those retards all over San Fierro you had to kill.
The best point in the game imo.
>All the games set in Liberty City seem to be grey and somber, while LA and Miami are whacky adventures.
Coincidence. V is also more "serious", just a tone shift.
The trick was to land the plane and use it as a gun emplacement when truck stops at the red light, then fly to the next one. Shooting them from the air is over complicating everything.
A better tactic is to match the target's speed and attack them from behind
Heh, I also did those missions for my cousins. But when I played it for the first time, I managed to beat it only on twentieth time or so. Well, I never was keen on flying simulators, even the most arcade ones.
>V is also more "serious"
It doesn't, it's just more adult, I'd say. Trevor doesn't allow the game to take itself serious.
I thought the scene with the night vision and bong was trying too hard to be funny.
>Trevor doesn't allow the game to take itself serious.
He's totally insane, but not wacky. He's actually acting the way the player does most of the time, killing pedestrians just because they are there.
That's mean, but the fact that they didn't play one of the best games makes them deserve it.
Dunno, his dialogues are comedy gold. He might be my favorite character from GTA series.
Same. When I got to this point I had the largest grin.
This. Unskippable dialogue and intros in games should incur the death penalty.
Often these are used to "hide" loading screens
That reminds me, up until recently AssCreed games had unskippable 20+ minutes credits. Not cool if you want to grab the remaining collectibles or whatever.
Kek, everyone has beated that mission from 1-3 try. 10 year later on internet - "muh difficult mission".
Those games had such promise but it sounds like they went to shit? Was it worth playing after 2? I think a 20 minutes credit roll would have me either walk away for a piss and a cup of tea or kill the process in the task manager to do something else instead.
> kill the process in the task manager
If you wanted to stop playing this game and not touch it anymore, yes. But you'd have to watch it again if you didn't let it play out fully.
It's the typical Ubisoft open world formula. Find towers to unlock the map, do the same stuff over and over. Climbing still really great, though. When I played II for the first time I thought "this is the Tomb Raider game Tomb Raider itself should be".
Just jump on train whike still in lossantos docks and kill them manually with smg
For me I always really enjoy those games for the first while and then I realise it's another umpteen hours of grinding and doing the same tasks to unlock or collect things and get to the cool stuff or the story and the map is full of fillers and huge and I lose interest. Happened with Just Cause 2 (massive cookie cutter maps and missions) Farcry 2 (same again), etc. Blood Dragon was just the right size and had enough variation and set pieces to make it fun and interesting all the way while still having an open world that didn't require me to collect X 150 times and collect Y 500 times and so on.
I finished that mission on the first go with no problems, then for some reason I had to do it again and it took me several tries. Not more than 4 though I think.
Playtime sells. Doesn't matter what it's filled with.
Well it matters to me and others who read reviews and opinions online. I can't stop others from buying bad games.
I've never had problems with that mission. I dont have problems until the racing missions
You can't have games with only unique stuff, though. There's bound to be repetition, if only to develop the skills you need in the game.
I've never understood the appeal of this fellow
At least that's not the reply I expected, which would be more hostile.
I replayed all GTA games about 2 years ago. Got zero problems with that train or RC-helicopter in Vice City.
brobably the best game ever
I disagree. After doing something a billion times I don't need to do it a billion and one. I learned all the skills long before. Abe's Oddysee and other good platformers show a much more fun skill progression that actually expands skills and presents new challanges as you go. Not DO X TEN MILLION TIMES TO UNLOCK SHIT. The latter is lazy garbage tier game design. I can't believe anyone but the most OCD type with nothing else to do would finish such a game.
Bit of a problem these days is overspecialisation. On one hand, corridor shooters that go for the feeling of a movie (with the appropriate "freedom" of one), on the other hand sandboxes where everything looks and plays the same. No middle ground.
Never got this maymay. Piece of cake mission, just like the race in original Mafia.
I never beat the final mission
When I reinstall it I usually install a savegame from where you can take over Balla and spic territory and I ride out on them otha niggas hoods with some homeys and some AR-15s
