NYC: City of Fights
To mark the highly anticipated release of Grand Theft Auto IV, the alternative history buffs over at the Bowery Boys blog break down the portrayal of New York City through video games, from Punch Out!! to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project.
FYI: As predicted, GTA IV is breaking all sorts of sales records--Sony Playstation is reporting $450 million in pre-sales alone, which would give it the highest first week sales (in money, not units) of any entertainment media ever.
