    I've put my copy of GTA V onto eBay in hopes of getting a lil bit of cash before it's just another old game.

    I tried to get into Online but it was just one frutration after another. I just don't seem to enjoy the fucking around everyone else does, it just feels like time wasted. The lobby system is so fucking annoying and time consuming, it takes so long to get anything done. I just can't be fucked putting up with it anymore. This game better not win GoT awards over The Last of Us.

    How weird.
    This is honestly the very first negative thing i've heard someone say about the game itself since it's been released. If it's any consolation it's going for right at retail right now, a copy is going now for free shipping for $61 so you should get most of your $ back.

    I also am not that into GTA Online. It's an amusing little ditty to play but I also agree that it is time wasted and after about half an hour of playtime it grows boring for me, even with my friends. I still need to beat single player.

    I think the way to look at the online is at a slight MMO angle. Once they have released all the missions and such it will be as much if not even more of a blast than it is now.

    The online is at its infant stage, give it time.

    16-person motorcycle races are the best. Bonus fun if the host sets the weather to rain and turns on traffic and wanted levels

    Next time you're gonna go do some races, go to a store and buy a bunch of beers. then when you're choosing your "salute" or "jerk" or whatever it is before the race, select "drink Piswasser" and hold A for a while. Your character will chug a whole beer and you'll be shitfaced for the first 30-45 seconds of the race.

    ^have to try that.

    Speaking of races, I really enjoy the racing in this game to a certain point. The only complaints I have are the catchup and slipstream mechanics the game has. Catchup basically means that you're punished for being first and driving good by slowing down your car. In addition, the players behind you can slipstream behind you and gain a significant boost making overtaking really easy. I think these mechanics fits great in the GTA races (with guns), but in normal racing I think they should at least be turned off by default (and have the choice to turn off slipstreaming). Nevertheless, I enjoy racing in GTA Online, but I really hope Rockstar would make some changes or at least offer more options to make the racing also being more about who can drive better than who can spin the other player's car off the track.

    Yeah, it's nice to be able to turn off Catch-Up but Slipstream should be optional too. Hopefully they add that soon. It's not THAT big of a deal but at the end of a close race it can really fuck up the outcome.

    Best way to get RP and money fast is to solo the Boneyard Survival mission, easily doable alone if you know the trailer to hide behind where guys will literally just walk out in front of it waiting for you to cap them...and helicopters can't touch ya. Takes a while, but if you finish it (about 30 min or so?) you get like a third of a level of RP and twenty grand.
    I found the new mission to farm is "Out of Court Settlement." pays $9,000. You always spawn in the same location a few blocks away from target. Easy job. And to repeat all have to do is just call "Martin" on your phone.
    Update: nevermind they nerfed it. now pays 4500 since last night

    Apparently the new update dropped a lot of the cash rewards but also the hospital bills now max out at just a few hundred and/or take a much smaller percentage, so that's nice. and the first half of our "stimulus package" drops early next week, according to Rockstar Newswire.

    EDIT FOR PATCH NOTES:

    • Fixes numerous issues that were causing vehicle loss and/or loss of vehicle mods
    • Fixes an issue where the incorrect car is replaced when choosing to replace a car in a full garage
    • Fixes an exploit allowing players to sell the same vehicle multiple times
    • Fixes an issue that caused personal vehicles to be duplicated
    • Fixes an issue where some players were unable to pay utility bills on an owned apartment or house
    • Fixes an issue where players were not getting Crew invites in-game
    • Fixes an issue where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing
    • Fixes issues with joining Jobs from within a player-owned garage
    • Fixes issues with players getting stuck while using playlists
    • Fixes additional issues causing black screens, long load times, and players getting stuck in the sky cam
    • Adds details in the UI to clarify that characters created while Rockstar cloud is unavailable are temporary (non-saved)
    • Adds changes to the character creator to make better-looking default characters with the “random” option
    • Players now only lose a maximum of 500 GTA$ upon death in Freemode

    I'm still enjoying it quite a bit. It's definitely not as good playing alone as it is with friends though. Hopefully the first batch of heists and the stock market are added in soon, that should stir things up a lot.

    I wish there was an option to join the "fullest" job of a certain type. All too often I join a job that only has 2 or 3 people on it when it has a total of 16 players available.

    Yeah, there should definitely be a "search for jobs" thing instead of "quick job" and getting something shitty. On a related note: has anyone had a successful rally race yet? It sounds like a fucking awesome idea, but every time I get into one half of the idiots don't have mics

    I've done one and I was the guide. Kind of sucks to be honest.

    Huh. It sounds like a great idea to me but I guess it would go a lot better if you're with friends instead of random strangers.

    To be fair it was on the "down the drain" track so that had a lot to do with it.

    Also I wish there was a way to make my character stop smoking. It's fucking gross.

    Does gta give you your racing fix or are you eyeing something like forza 5 for xbox one? They're apples and oranges but I almost like racing and fps in gta most

    I'm not really a huge fan of racing games but I love it in GTA, the online players aren't nearly as competitive as the ones I ran into on Forza Horizon, it's never really a big deal about coming in first, everyone's just having fun and cracking jokes the whole time, and the races themselves and customizing your personal cars are super straight-forward for people who don't know jack-shit about cars.

    I must apologise for killing 2 of you yesterday. I was unaware that the red outlines on the map meant crew members. I thought you were arch enemies that the game told me I had haha. It wasn't until the info pane came up that I realised. Oops.

    Looks like the stimulus went through last night, but instead of 2 payment of 250k they just dumped 500k in one drop. More than a few people have had 1.25mil deposits in error...makes you wonder who is in charge of quality control over there.

    All my weapons are gone. I'm getting fucking tired of shit mysteriously disappearing. This only aggravates me because I found out too late when some asshole just randomly attacked me when I was trying to get my mechanic to bring me a car.

    After my stimulus and buying a garage/apartment, I'm so done with the multiplayer on this game.
