12 quid for the entire thing (If you have PSN plus) is pretty good actually.

I know they where dirt cheap on Steam, but GTA 4 is just a pain in the arse on my PC and I sold my Xbox version a while back so I might pick this up and go through it again.

Heh I was going to say I bought all the GTA's available on Steam during the Summer Sale for £4.99. Why's it a pain in the ass on your machine? You aren't running AMD hardware there are you? ;)

I played through Lost and The Damned last weekend, forgot how much fun it was just arseing around in Liberty City. Dunno why I didn't complete it when I bought it to be honest, but it's not as good as the Gay Tony episode, that was brilliant, funny and a bit mental. Just like GTA of old. I might give that another play through over the weekend - if I can pull myself away from Hitman...

The unfortunate answer to that question is yes. Lots of slowdown. I don't have a brilliant PC anyway so it was always gonna be difficult but I thought it was worth a shot for a fiver, especially as I got the others too.

Nice, I was only thinking of buying it from the store last week, but I only had 18 euro in credit now I can buy the complete game happy days.

What is the difference between Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City £9.99 & Grand Theft Auto: Episodes Bundle £7.99?

Rockstar released the two episodes on disc without GTA IV, kinda like a standalone game, Episodes From Liberty City is the downloadable version of that.

The Episodes Bundle requires GTA IV on disc.

Hope that makes sense.

To play the bundle you need GTA IV but Episodes can be played as a standalone game.

Don't know for sure but I believe the latter is a bundle comprising the 2 released DLC modules, which requires GTA4 in order to run them but you choose which of the 3 campaigns you want to play from a single unified menu

WHEREAS

the former is the standalone bundle where you can play TLAD and TBOGT *only* as a standalone game and if you've sold/uninstalled your copy of GTA4 you can still play these without it.

I believe the soundtrack is different as well, with the standalone version missing a substantial amount of licensed music from GTA4 which it makes up for by adding some new tracks and the Vice City FM retro station.
