Version Updates 1. Aside from the amusing interactions between Nico and the women he dates Hot Coffee anyone? Putting in a little bit of time to woo certain women can unlock their special abilities that can help in particularly difficult missions later on. After the Brucie mission "Out of the Closet", Nico can start to set up dates through the in game internet dating site love-meet.
Nico can set up dates with three different women through the internet in addition to the two that he meets in the course of the storyline.
Once Nico has set up the date through love-meet. A date and time will be set and added to the organizer on Nico's phone to which he will go on the "first date". This first date is the most important as it will determine whether Nico will be able to get their phone number and continue dating them.
Like the other relationships that Nico has with his newfound friends in Liberty City, you gain their favor by taking them on dates to different venues around the city. Unlike the other male friends however, dating is more than just worrying about the venue. To have a sucessful date Nico must cater to the women's tastes in three areas; Clothing, Car and Venue. Each have different tastes and will respond accordingly. This guide will help you set up the fastest and easiest way to impress the women and raise their fondness level to the point at which it will unlock their special ability.
Each of the women have their own preferences when it comes to Nico's fashion style, but being "dressed to impress" and catering to the women's tastes is perhaps the easiest way to help ensure that the date is a success. Stick to only one pair of clothes from the Russian shop as only two of the five women like it. The clothing is mid priced and will pretty much be the staple of dating clothing. A suit is the best choice when buying from PERSEUS, as the all in one purchase impress most of the women who like "high class" clothing.
Don't forget the shoes! Cars When it comes to dating in Liberty city cars come in three flavors; a. Mainstream Cars The difference is usually visually apparent. Luxury cars are the best looking,though not always the fastest.
Coupes are usually the way to go when looking for Luxury cars, but luxury Sedans also work well. The Sports cars are usually the fastest cars around and while they look good, they may not appeal to the women who expect high class cars.
Don't use a mainstream car on a date unless your desperately out of time and need a quick ride to pick her up in. When picking a car for a date, use visual cues. The sportier, shinier and better looking the car is the higher the chances that dates will like it. Most of the women in Liberty City, even those that like the low class clothing, all like nice cars. Go for the best ones you can find when going on a date.
It's even a good idea to keep a good car that you find in your Safehouse parking space. This saves time in finding one later on and will keep date maintenance easier.
The motorcycle doesn't seem to appeal to any of the women of Liberty City and a nasty crash with the date onboard can lead to a failed date. Venues Venues can also be broken up into categories; A. Sports Bowling, Darts, Pool, etc D. Shows Cabaret and Comedy Each girlfriend has their own preferences on Venues, and can be convenient at times date lives next to restaurant or annoying venue is clear across town. After that you can use closer and perhaps less liked venues for fondness maintenance later on.
Part of the game storyline, so its automatic. After the mission "Three's a crowd" you are told to go the Russian Shop for new clothes. After this you can call her to set up a date. Russian Shop though she isn't bothered by other clothing Vehicle Preference: Almost any vehicle no police car, trucks, weird cars, etc Venue Preference: Almost any venue will impress Michelle, though some will gain fondness faster than others. She is perhaps the easiest to impress.
None besides hot coffee Notes: Michelle is the first "girlfriend" you encounter and serves as a training girlfriend for the game. There is no real tangible benefit to dating her aside from the requirement of the story-related missions.
After the "Out of the Closet" mission, Nico can set up dates online through love-meet. After some time aprox game hours you will receive an email from Carmen and the first date will be set up at Carmen prefers expensive clothes, the more expensive the better. A change of clothes on the second date will also help boost the rate of fondness you acquire from the date.
Carmen also prefers expensive Luxury cars. Stick to Luxury or Sports cars and coupes. After your initial first date, it's a good idea to keep a Luxury car parked at the Bohan Safehouse for future dates. Seriously, Carmen loves to hit the sauce. Any of the bars around liberty city will do. Taking her to a Bar will almost guarantee her number after the first date. For an even closer fix, she also likes the Strip Club. Do not take her out to eat when you're trying to raise her fondness quickly, later on they can be used to maintain her fondness but early on they do very little to raise fondness.
Health Boost - This ability allows Nico to call Carmen for medical advice and a quick health boost. Currently it has a bug that makes it not work during a mission sometimes. Easiest Way To Date: The easiest way to get Carmen to like Nico is to show up in as expensive clothing as you can afford and the most extravagant car you can find.
It's always good to keep an expensive car in the Safehouse parking at Bohan for the occasion and will keep you from having to keep looking. One visit to a bar and two return visits to the strip club should be enough to raise her Fondness to the point where she will allow you to use her special ability. Like Carmen, a date with Kiki can be set up after the "Out of the Closet" mission through the internet cafe.
Her profile name is LawChick. Later dates can be set up by calling her between 6am - 2am. As such she is a good choice for thefirst woman to date. Kiki prefers a good mid range nice car. Though not as picky as Carmen, it's still good to stick to a good car. Watch out though, while she likes Luxury cars, she isn't all that appreciative of sportscars. A Washington or Marbella found around Algonquin do nicely.
Don't bother with food or drinking and they barely help. Remove Wanted Level - Kiki's benefit can remove up to three wanted levels. This ability even works on some missions. The ability takes a moment to kick in after calling. This will ensure her number on the first date. Twice to the comedy club and a sports activity should be enough to get her fondness in the high 80's or 90's.
Unlike the first two, dating Alex can be setup through crap-list. Scroll down and find the entry "Party girl seeks man for NSA fun and blog material", then click the "Contact" link. After an initial wait time you will get an email with details about your first date with her.
That's about it, no if's and or buts'. As fancy a sports car as you can find. The most convenient would be a Turismo which can occasionally be found near north Algonquin. Alex has the same preference as Kiki, Sports and Shows. Store Discount - when used all clothing from stores are half off for the next 24 in game hours. Easiest Way to Date: The easiest way to date Alex is to show up with the best car you can find and wearing the most expensive clothes you can buy. Take her to the Comedy Club a few times, its close and she likes it a lot.
It's a good idea to keep an expensive sports car in the mid-Algonquin safehouse for future dates. After doing a couple of the Packy McReary missions, Packy will ask you take Kate out on a date and give you her number.
You can call her whenever you're ready for a first date. Don't forget the shoes. A nice moderate car. Nothing to fancy but nothing too cheap either. As far as I can tell, none.
