GTA IV Lost StagePublished by wes213 on Sunday, May 04, 2008

SarcasticGamer.com is reporting a hidden stage found in the GTA IV game but the catch is its not in the retail game, the stage or if you ask me what sounds more like a glitch can only be found in the online download that released before the actual game did.
SarcasticGamer.com reports: "What the hackers found seems to be an abandoned mission that Rockstar at some point intended on including in the game. We have no idea how far into the process this mission got before it was pulled, but we’re pretty sure they knew what they were doing by the mission name… that name was Hot Coughing."
"Hacker R*Fan4Lyfe noted in a forum post that while the audio files for the mission were not included in the disk image (and presumably are not on the retail disk either,) the subtitles for the mission dialog were still present. The mission involves Niko going to the hospital after pulling a groin muscle in one of the game’s side missions; a mission that is actually present in the retail game. While in the hospital, Niko is hounded by an ambulance chasing attorney humorously named Jerk Thompson. The attorney pesters Niko about his accident, trying to convince him that violent cartoons such as Tom & Jerry or Loony Tunes were to blame. The attorney is apparently reluctant to leave as the doctor examines Niko. Niko is finally able to get him to leave as the doctor performs the stereotypical “turn your head and cough” test to check for a hernia. As Niko turns his head to cough, he apparently spies the attorney gazing longingly at Niko through a gap in the curtain and that’s when all hell breaks loose."
While this scenario has no Ware near the possibility for controversy and major backlash the Hot Coffee mod had for GTA San Andreas its still neat to know that the possibility of uncover hidden stages of games is out there and if you don't know anyone that got the brasserie copy of GTA IV I'm sure some one will soon be releasing footage of the scene in all its glory.
