    Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce the highly anticipated The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony are now available for download on PlayStation®Network and Games for Windows-LIVE, and at retail stores everywhere as part of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City. For the first time ever, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Games for Windows-LIVE players can experience the amazing finale to the Grand Theft Auto IV story.

    “Rockstar North went above and beyond to create an epic finale for fans of the series,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We hope our fans enjoy these two episodes as much as we’ve enjoyed making them.”

    The Lost and Damned is a dark trip through Liberty City's seedy underbelly as outlaw biker, Johnny Klebitz, fights to keep his gang together as a rift in the gang's leadership threatens to tear the brotherhood apart. In The Ballad of Gay Tony, players step behind the velvet rope of Liberty City's high-end nightlife as Luis Lopez, who is struggling to balance the temptations of money and vice against loyalties to family and friends. Both episodes take place in Liberty City, the much loved, immersive world of Grand Theft Auto IV and offer a slew of new vehicles, weapons, and activities

    Well I tested the patch last night and glad to say if does wonders for the graphics, finally they dumped the built in filtering and allowed proper anistropic filtering upto x16 (very nice) and the shadows on high and very high are very sharp and defined without much performance hits.

    The main thing I noticed is even High textures seems to take a good deal less ram to have on, allowing for either maxing shadows or max the view and detail distances without popup, which looks awesome.
