Just keep doing the Packie missions, if you have them.

When threads change to Pt. 2 or whatever, it's the rule that you change titles. Do it!

Okay, I can't seem to find it, but apparently somewhere on the "internet" (the real one, not the one in the game), there's a picture of an airplane ticket with Nicko's name on it, and it's destination is "San Andreas".

Now, this could very well be a rumor - but it would not be too surprising, considering the developers have said that DLC would be "San Andreas" and "Vice City" sized. So the possibility could very well be for Nicko to take things to the other two cities. With the original Vice City taking place in the '80s, and San Andreas in the early '90s, it'd be cool to see them updated to current times, to say nothing of updated to current gen.

Sure, a whole new city would probably be preferable, but who's to say they won't change up these old cities like they changed up Liberty City?

Still, total rumor...

Kill Playboy X, definitely Playboy X. You get a lot of nice stuff, while if you kill Dwayne, you get zip.

Definitely kill...
Spoiler:
Playboy X. You'll get X's pad as a safehouse, and be able to call Dwayne, who'll send you thugs you can use as back up during missions. Killing Dwayne just gives you a bunch of money, and nothing else - X won't have anything to do with you after that. Still, save before, go back to replay it and kill Dwayne just to see some depressing shit, but go back and play the rest of the game on your dead-X save.

What happens if you kill
Spoiler:
Dwayne
?

I've already done the opposite, seemed like the right thing to do to me, and was just wonder what you guys decided on and what happens if you go the other way.

I'm interested in that too.
Spoiler:
I don't think you actually kill Dwayne though. One of the achievements depends on Dwayne being alive.

Spoiler:
well, according to the stats page in the game... Dwayne is someone who will be one of your friends... while X is missions only.

So you would lose one of your friends... and all the friend benefits....

Playboy X and Duane, I think I missed my chance or something. I never came to a mission that I have to choose, yet neither X nor Duane show on my map anymore. What gives?

Character missions will come and go on the map. It doesn't mean your done with them.

I haven't see him on my map in ages. But he's still in my phone list.

Characters in the game also often mention Las Venturas. It'd be cool if they re-did that with a much more realistic look, which a lot of games (ok, a few at least) have done since San Andreas.

This is getting really frustrating. I have incomplete mission percentages for Playboy X and Dwayne, but neither have been on my maps for a long time, and neither ever answer my phone calls. I am at 50.64 overall game progress with very few side missions done, so is it possible I'm too far past the point to do these missions? There's got to be a way to go back.

When I go to Playboy X's building I can't get upstairs. The elevator door is open but there's no way to get up.

Well, I'm about 48% done, and did the Playboy X/Dwayne thing at probably 45%. Of course that doesn't necessarily matter, since a person could be at different % done when it becomes available.

I want to say that it opened up for me after I did a Packie mission.

I think I'm done with Packie already.

I guess I'll just keep doing missions and see what happens.

I picked this up last night (new for $29.00) - amazing game. I don't know what all the complaining is about on the controls as I really don't see any other way it could have been done (including driving). The attention to detail in this game is beyond ridiculous.

The coolest thing I've done so far is in multiplayer - I flew a chopper to the empire state building, landed it there, the proceeded to jump off from the top and for those who are curious......yes, you will fall all the way down and it's awesome to watch

The single player gameplay is addicting and makes you want to play non-stop.

Very happy I got this as I've lost interest shortly after playing every other GTA game. This one is in a class of it's own like COD4.

excuse my stupidity maybe I missed something along the way, but is there any kind of a "gta dvdtalk" multiplayer club in existence? The only "dvdtalkers" i have in my friend list (xbox 360) are AKTICK, SITH DRAVEN, and MASTEROFDVD, so I am just putting this out there, any other dvdtalk GTA fans out there who don't want to put up with playing on live opposite a bunch of 14 year olds, Then "mrmagoo1974" is your man
