(The Ballad of) Gay Tony is such a tease

I don't know about you, but the first question that came to my mind when Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony was announced earlier this year was, "How gay is it going to be?"

I thought developer Rockstar North might answer that question this morning when it released the first trailer for the much-anticipated add-on but, alas, I was wrong.

The game certainly looks good--assuming Grand Theft Auto is your thing, of course--but I was hoping we'd get at least a tiny glimpse at the gay side of Liberty City.

Considering Rockstar promised in a press release that accompanied the trailer that the Xbox 360 title will contain "guns, glitz and glamor," I'm hopeful the final product also will contain a bit of "teh gay" when it hits real and virtual store shelves on Oct. 29.

I'm just hoping it doesn't treat us poorly. If Rockstar can make me proud, I'll be thrilled.

Well, Rockstar did create Bully and Jimmy can kiss boys in it. It was very discreet, and didn't get blow it out of proportions.

I agree, though the gay characters (that I'm aware of) in the GTA games have been more stereotypical. It'll be interesting to see where they take this game, that's for sure!
