I remember the first time I was able to jump in a FPS game. I think it was Dark Forces. It was fucking amazing. Almost as cool as being able to look up and down. That was back in (checks wikipedia) 1995....

Fuck. Now I want to play Dark Forces....man that was a great game...

Eh it was ok, I think it being the first FPS in the ST universe made it more then it was... Now Outcast\Academy were sweet games, the whole FPS with jedi powers and lightsabers was done perfectly in those titles... damn I wish they would do another one like those.

Condition: GTAitis

Symptoms: Constantly hearing sirens

Diagnosis: Playing too much GTA / Living in Compton.

Well looks like Rockstar tweaked 'base invaders' its not a gravy run anymore. Way more soldiers, tougher soldiers and endless respawning of soldiers.

Told ya. At least we got four runs in last night.

But survival still is. 20k.

Ya but survival takes easily over 30min to complete, probably closer to 45min. In that time doing other missions can rack up way more cash. Could probably (k not anymore) bank well over a 100k doing base invaders. Even the other playmodes will give more money per time invested... actually if you want to rank up and money up real fast try skydiving. They dont pay much or give very much RP, but if you consider how fast they are I'd bet those types of games probably earn the most on a time investment scale.

That said I do like to start my GTA online session with a survival game just so I can have all the toys, like a HMG, RPG, Grenade launcher and a fully loaded minigun

Had a blast with Creston, PHJF and whoever PR345 is in GTA Online, looking forward to playing with the rest of the crew soon. Thanks for tolerating my newbie guy, I had been skipping GTA Online until the connectivity stuff was worked out.

Iím PR345, ya flea-bitten varmint Ö Iím Riff-Raff Sam Ö the riffiest riff that ever riffed a raff!

After that survival match, I scurried to an ATM faster than I ever have before.

No need to risk running around looking for an ATM, just use your phone.

Made lvl 10 on survivor, 18 k payout ... Plus at the end of lvl 8 you get minigun drops which you keep when going back to freeroam. Course seeing as you get punished for blowing up players cars its a dangerous weapon to use.

EDIT Heh, k so I boost a car from some ai woman. Shes giving me the do you know who I am speech as I haul her ass out of the car. As Im driving away I get a phone call from her, basically saying youre a dead man. Im thinking ya right, then a 1000 dollar bounty gets placed on me. Gotta love the attention to detail, kudos Rockstar.

Reached lvl7 in survivor, solo, got a ton of exp and almost 12k in cash. Do a survivor, sell a car, rinse and repeat, should have an apt in no time.

EDIT: Boneyard, look for a blue bus

I don't know, 500GB PS3 for $149 is cheap in my book, especially as it twice that price last week.

Ya those prices they quote are for USED consoles not new... And IMO the author has his head up his ass because he claims used PS3s were selling at 259$, da fuck? I bought a brand new 500 gig PS3 with GTA5 included for only 10$ more then that... Well ok maybe not the authors error and just gamestop being greedy ass fuckers, who the hell would buy a used console to save 10 dollars.

EDIT half a mill GTA bucks, wonder if this will mark the opening of the stock market. Wish they would do some price adjustments, some of the prices on shit like haircuts is just stupid expensive.

GTA online is a blast, even on your own. Tons of things to do, just unlocked survivor mode. Dont think Ill ever go back to single player, total opposite of 4s multiplayer which I never really got into. Would like to see more coop missions added, seem to be doing the same ones over and over again. Prolly be back in in an hour or so if anyone wants to jam.

You can rank up rreaaalllyyy quickly by golfing by yourself.

No money, though. AFAIK the best way to get steady money at least at low levels is selling high-end cars every 45 minutes (Ocelot F620s are worth $9500 mint condition). I'm up to $120k after losing my first character, gonna get a six-car apartment ~$140.

No idea why "The GTA Online stock market is currently unavailable," maybe it requires a minimum rank.

You get a lot of exp racing by yourself too, and races are really quick. Same with sky diving though not as much exp but they are even faster then races.

PS thanks for the bounty, pretty sure you let me cap your ass

Also, GTA5: Watch this guy dodge two missiles on the way out...

I can get the jet or the C-130 without firing a shot, without getting shot at (bullets) and without them even firing missiles at me, pretty much at will... of course it doesn't involve running the gate Hope Rockstar changes the spawn location at the main airport so you can at least save the 130 there.

This is probably the best trailer since the Prometheus teaser (great trailer, frustrating film). I love the Oppenheimer narration and the music. And the destruction looks epic. With all of those dead bodies though, not sure how this gets played in the theater as "Approved for all audiences."

Frustrating? Interesting adjective choice, I would have gone with utter crap myself. Great CGI but the story was a total train wreck.

Kinda looks like they are going with the new godzilla like the one from the Broderick movie. I actually enjoyed that movie but would prefer to see old school godzilla done with todays CGI tech. Course IMO Cloverfeild rocked the giant monster theme, that was a very well done movie.

I found connecting yesterday easier and the places seemed more populated. Never seem to be able to find sessions with fellow crew members though, and it kinda sucks that you have zero options on where you connect when first joining just a random dump into some random server.

You can call friends and crew members to join same game....can also call them to join game/mission. Worked great for a few of us the other night. Was a blast.

Thanks, I did poke around in the options last night and saw where you could invite crew members in the mission creation menu. Not quite sure if games are hosted on outside servers or if its p2p, if its p2p I prolly shouldnt host games... Guess Ill google it.

Spoiler for anyone who likes to discover stuff on thier own in GTA.

ST Remember a certain cargo plane that went down in the lake? Well I just did a little lake diving and its there at the bottom. Lots of weapons strewn about, not much else that I could see. I used the cargobob the airlift the zodiac to the lake so I could use scuba gear to search the bottom.

Personally I liked 4s story better, was a lot more invested in the characters. Brucie, rasta man, Packy and yes even his ass cousin were much more memorable then 5s poeple. The story had a much better flow to it too... IMO 4s bank hiest still beats all of 5 s jobs. And 4s music was much better too. That said I do prefer 5 s overall world.

Meh most of those were pretty lame, some good ones though. My best so far has to be one of my Trevor deaths, was trying to bail out of a moving car that was on fire. He was half hanging out of the car and got slammed by a semi going the other way... oh and sub implosion from going too deep is pretty sweet.

For PlayStation 3 users, a PlayStation Network server issue was detected that was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users. This was preventing most players from accessing GTA Online altogether and as of this morning, that problem was resolved.

So that explains the new PS3 firmware that happened today.

There is an issue that is preventing some players from getting through the first tutorial mission across both platforms. Many players have been able to get through this with repeated retries, and we are working on unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible.

Dunno if it's the mission they are referring to but the second one I think, after the first race, simply vanished on me while I was in route. The next time I logged in it went straight back to that mission and it worked.

Only other thing that they didn't mention, and I don't know if its a feature or a bug, but I dropped from lvl 5 to lvl 3 for some reason.

Oh and heh totally fucked up feature, when you lose your car you have the option of stealing it back from impound. Problem is your car remains in the condition it was in when you lost it... mine had all the tires blown out and you get an instant 2 stars for taking it back... no way in hell I can ditch the police with no tires. All my free first car upgrades gone. Lesson learned, not going to waste a dime on upgrading vehicles until I can at least buy bullet proof tires.

Game stuff that might not be obvious. Unlike the single player game if you steal a car its hot and will remain so until you paint it, so any cop sees you drive instant stars. Also one time I went into a spray shop I had the option of selling the car I just stole, cha-ching!

Well I'm in, raced Lamar, robbed the store, didn't join the team deathmatch they wanted me to do. Sitting alone in LS at half health wondering how the hell I'm I supposed the heal? Went to hospitals and stores where I knew either med kits or pop machines were located but theres nothing there, confused to say the least. Tried to join a crew session but it either doesnt work or nobodys playing ATM.

EDIT k found some pop machines and figured out you can buy supplies at a store... Got on a populated server and jammed for a bit, held up some stores. One session I was in the cops were fucked, move ten feet stop, move another ten feet stop, needless to say ditching the police in that session was a cake walk, heh probably could have walked away from them.

Anyone have any idea on how to avoid the patch?
I guess I could always just turn off my wireless router...

uh...unplug the wireless adapter behind the xbox?

Yeah, I'm gonna unplug my PS3 for a while and play off-line until they get this shit figured out...if it will let me...


=-Rigs-=

You don't have to unplug the console from your network, just don't accept the update... and you don't have to sign in when you use the console either just turn off the auto log on feature, turned that off on mine a long time ago... though with GTA5 even if you're logged off it still detects the update, just don't accept it it still lets you play... think I'll backup my saves to a thumb drive and see what happens, of course if the saves themselves are ok and its the core game thats getting messed up I'll be SOL... hmmm, fuck it, I'll let Rockstar get their shit together first.
