They already said no major characters are returning & none from the ps2 games. I bet you we'll see that gay dude at some point in the game...think his name was Bernie & i like how they'll proly use the switching of cut scenes/gameplay like they did in Max Payne.
Hopefully they'll have different minigames to play depending on the area you're in like if you're in a rich neighborhood you can play crochet or something and if you're in the hood you can shoot dice or play spades.
Only thing I'm kinda disappointed in is that there's no properties you can buy. Would be nice if there was a wide variety of houses/mansions you could buy with each one having different features
