At ease, recruit! I... I have to admit Im not looking forward to this. Five articles ago, we started our journey through LEGO City. Through the highs and the lows, youve stuck by me weve helped each other out, and Id like to think youve learned a lot along the way a lot thatll make you a great new police officer. I... Im proud of you to have come this far. Hold on, Im getting a little choked up.
[bashing and crashing]
Ho ho ho! Guess who? Save me all that soppy crap and wave goodbye to Mr. Bow tie lets teach you something youll really be able to use. My name is, er, Reginald Furry, and Ill be your instructor today. So heres how to take the saps of LEGO City for all their worth:
Dont let anyone stand in your way
I mean it, bro. If youre running down the street after youve robbed a bank, or stolen a purse from a little old LEGO lady or something, dont worry about trying to dodge people. Just run into them, and youll send them flying, because thats how tough you are. Even better, if youre in a car, and the police are chasing you down, dont worry about driving down the road, dude. There are way too many cars to dodge there, and you wouldnt want to risk slowing yourself down. Just drive down the pavement instead. You dont have to worry about crashes, and you can laugh as all the mugs dive out the way of your car only to be squished by another!
Take them for a ride
Dont you just hate that feeling when youre trying to manoeuvre a massive articulated truck youve just stolen, and some inconsiderate pleb toots you when you accidentally reverse into his car? Next time, maybe you should give this a try. Just walk up next to his car, and press X, and youll automatically hop in, spouting some rubbish about it being police business or something. Then, while hes still trying to figure out what happened, you can drive off with his missus in tow! She may be smiling on the inside, but you know shes bricking it on the inside. OHHHHH!!!!!
The Great Train Robbery
You know, us crooks have the worst possible rep, but were not really all that bad. In fact, were not even the most dangerous thing in LEGO City that has to go to the trains and trams that drive round the town. These things are heartless, man if you get in their way, they wont even think about slowing down. Its like theyve got a schedule to stick to or something. Either way, their stubbornness is something you can use to your advantage. If youve got a load of people that are getting on your nerves, just nick their cars, and line them up on the railway line. Wait for the train to come by, and BOOM sit back and watch the fireworks.
The Great Train Robbery, Part Two
Of course, sometimes blowing up the cars of your enemies just isnt enough. Sometimes, you need to do it for yourself. Good thing you can take over the trains then. While its a bit tricky to do, cause trains are fast moving and stuff, it is possible. All you have to do is wait in place, press X, and youll jump into the drivers seat, putting you at the wheel of hundreds of bricks of pure destruction. Just wait for someone to pull out in front of you now or wait at the level crossing, crouching, ready to pounce when they least expect it. Bang!
The Great ATM Robbery
Short of cash? No worries. All you have to do is put on your crook disguise (you do have a crook disguise, dont you? Trust me, you dont want anyone knowing your real identity when youre pulling these things off), and stand in front of one of the ATMs. Push a button and blammo youll smash the thing to pieces! All you have to do then is make off with the money inside. Want more? If youre appropriately disguised, you can crowbar locked doors open, and even crack safes thanks to your stethoscope. With the right tools, youve got everything you need to be the worlds greatest robber.
The world seconds greatest bank robber, that is. Second greatest after me. Thats right, Rex... I mean, Reginald Furry. Wait, whats that sound? Uh oh, looks like my time here is up. See you later, loser! And dont try and steal my patch!
