I picked up GTA San Andreas over thanksgiving break, and just now started to get into the missions. I just finished the lowly Balla drive by's after just fuckin around for a while finding weapons and secret places in the city. If you go into the police station there's body armor and a shotgun awaiting you. Of course as soon as you pick it up you get two stars. haha I'm doing better at this game than I was in Vice City, by far.
