Tech Wouldn’t You Like a Free Copy of GTA IV?
posted by April 29 at 16:22 PMon
Looks like Slog’s murderin’ sock monkey has an extra copy of Grand Theft Auto IV (and if you can’t tell, this copy’s for the PlayStation 3). Want it? Then follow the lead of commenters in our last GTA post and enter our contest by making up a mission designed for the imaginary sequel, Grand Theft Auto: Emerald City. (Hat tip to Slog reader Harold for the contest idea.) For the uninitiated, the game’s filled with scattered, criminal missions—rob this place, intimidate that guy, drive somewhere to pick up a drug dealer, do something bad at a landmark, etc. To win this contest, come up with a Seattle-specific mission that is authentic to the seedy GTA rep. Good examples thus far: “Bolt from the grocery before paying your 20 cent bag tax,” “Lure a dancer away from undercover cops at Ricks,” and something about underage girls on Aurora. But I know the Slog nation can do better.
Post your ideas as replies on this post to enter. 80 words or less, please—no need for an essay here. Make sure to type your legit e-mail address when entering your comment, or else we won’t be able to contact you if you win. We’ll pick our favorite entry as the winner on Friday at 1 p.m. PST, and multiple entries are encouraged. You must be in the USA—both for the cost of shipping and the fact that we think this game’s region-locked. Oh, we’ll also throw in some GTA IV stickers—in case you like the idea of being pulled over by a cop after he eyes GTA IV star Niko Bellic on your bumper.
As far as impressions go, I’m hesitant to pass judgment just yet. The single-player quest is still largely the same as ever, but I’ve barely scratched its surface, while the multiplayer modes are growing on me mighty quickly. I’ll wait until tomorrow for a “24 Hours Into GTA IV” post.
