I don't know, I think I'm kinda done with the CoD formula that was way better done in older games like Counter-Strike anyway. I agree that Destiny looks more promising in at least it's trying new things.

Yeah, it's kind of like Borderlands meets WoW. But the gun play doesn't seem to have any physics, the aliens seem generic.

I dunno, this gameplay video just seemed boring to me. Maybe it plays better than it watches.

Edit: for example, despite my preference for sci fi over real life, I found The Division gameplay and story more compelling than Destiny.

More like Borderlands meets Halo meets Resistance meets Mass Effect meets Fallout. Not sure what you mean about 'generic' aliens, which ones the Vex? Hive? Fallen? Cabal? or player races Exo? Awoken? What exactly was generic about that battle where multiple coop teams joined together in a huge human vs AI battle with drop ships dumping aliens and huge boss like machines... because I've never seen anything like it before and I've been around since pong.

A massive open world, um worlds, characters you can upgrade and lvl up. Personal spaceships you can use to travel all over the solar system to battle on Venus, Mars, Europa and the Moon... they have even hinted at having space battles too. All built around a coop system where you can join up with friends to battle against multiple alien races on multiple planets and moons and even join up with other groups of coop players in massive battles. I've knocked Halo, but that wasn't due to the way it played, Bungie nailed that aspect, it was their level design I couldn't take and they seem to have improved that aspect drastically in this game. This game is at the top of my most anticipated list.

I'm looking forward to The Division and Watch Dogs too but how are they not just another 'generic' take on the genre GTA started.

Guess I'm the only one who was underwhelmed by Titanfall, didn't really impress me at all, COD with mechs.

Destiny is the one that really has my attention.

Heh idiots, this is what happens when suits decided what kind of video game to make. I cant imagine any person who actually plays games, especially C&C games, said I want C&C to go online with a pay to win model. Some suit who was drooling over numbers from some other company made that decision. Another generals, built around a single player campaign, with the ability to do multiplayer... as someone who actually plays video games... that would interest me.

ifruit, now I can finally start my second playthrough with EVERYTHING.

Word of advice, do not do anything with chop, it's impossible to keep him fed and watered with the amount of credits you get. Just let the credits pile up for a few days then buy all his tricks and a collar at once. Then all you need to do is feed, water and walk him just before you want to play the game.

"President Barack Obama went nearly five years without knowing his own spies were bugging the phones of world leaders. Officials said the NSA has so many eavesdropping operations under way that it wouldn’t have been practical to brief him on all of them."

"The White House cut off some monitoring programs after learning of them, including the one tracking Ms. Merkel and some other world leaders, a senior US official said,"


So the NSA is above the President and picks and chooses what info they share? Surprised they aren't just shutdown when things like this happen. But lets stay worried about a buggy website.

I like how they stat they cut off tracking for world leaders but have no problem continuing to spy on their own people that vote them into office. They are just Joe's until that point, then all knowing Oz.

I guess you could take them at their word... of course it seems far more logical that this is just them trying to cover the Presidents ass after shit Snowden hit the fan. I don't believe for a second the President didn't know what was happening, his record thus far on the subject would indicate he knew exactly what was being done and to whom... on this subject, unfortunately, the DNC and GOP are on the same page.

'Xbox Hang Up' LOL

I will say that I'm interested in the game recording/sharing, as I'm not going to invest in a capture card/software, but would love to show off how to steal the c130 from GTA 5.

Would have been nice to record the record fail the crew... ok, I, did on one of the missions the other day. Got out of my car so another crew member could use it to take our mission NPC to his destination. An unfortunate decision on where I parked it, and bad timing, resulted in the NPC walking up to the car just as a train showed up. Funny as hell as we all clued into what was about to happen but could do nothing but watch as the train destroyed my car and killed the NPC.

Finally got someone to steal my Elegy... my ignition bomb wired Elegy. Enjoyed that so much I wired up another car and got someone to take that bait too. Be aware of a nice ride parked at LS Customs, might be an easy 8 grand or might be a bait car

Good to hear Hudson is doing well, not sure what her dietary needs are, but some fatty ground beef (regular ground beef) mixed with her food might do the trick... assuming shes allowed to eat that.

EDIT Been a long time but I vaguely remember feeding my dog a mix of regular ground beef, rice and pumpkin.

Puppy chow generally tends to be very high in fat so if you have a lightweight dog whom is active and has a high metabolism, it's a great way to keep their weight within healthy comfortability.

Puppy Chow is garbage, dog probably do better eating its own feces. Anything you can buy in a grocery store chain is crap, all of it.

THE BEACH BUM PACK
Coming in early November will be the first add-on content update, the Beach Bum Pack which will bring all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry that you’ll be able to use in both GTA Online and Story Mode. Plus new customization options for your GTA Online character including new tats, hairstyles and more. We’ll also be adding lots of brand new action-packed Jobs to play with Gang Attacks, Survivals, Last Team Standings, Parachutes, Deathmatches and Races that will have you bloodying up the waters and coastlines of the finest beach resorts across Los Santos and Blaine County.

Nice to see it will come with a bunch of new jobs, hope it hits early November... like Nov 1st Looks like the content creator has been pushed back, now its just 'fall' release... and they were very vague on hiests, doesnt look good for that feature coming anytime soon.

Hi everyone,
Just to clarify for those who were asking about the adjustment made to mission replay payouts, please remember that we are continuing to regularly balance the dynamic in-game economy and whenever we discover that there are unintended loopholes that some players are exploiting to grind cash or RP, you can expect that we will be adjusting or closing them. By the same token, there are also cases where we’re balancing the economy in the opposite direction such as recently reduced penalties for dying. All of this is done to keep things as fair and as fun as possible - please remember that we are looking at not only player data in our ongoing tuning process decision-making but also at your direct input, so if you have any feedback about the in-game economy or any other aspects of the game, please direct it to GTAOnline@rockstargames.com as we are actively looking at all player feedback sent to that address. We thank you for your understanding and patience and please stay tuned this week for more information including timing of the first GTA$ Stimulus Package deposit and the forthcoming new content such as the Beach Bum Pack, Content Creator and Heists.

Gimmie, Gimmie and Gimmie... odd they say nothing regarding the stock market, or is that now just a single player thing.

Well there's no doubt it looks awesome, its looked awesome since the very first vid. Only question is, can they deliver, let's see if the dog fighting module hits its mark in a month. That would be a good sign, might even get me to pledge.

She had a severe reaction to the antibiotic, and began throwing up and having diarrhea.

Just a reaction to medication, definitely did the right thing Blue. Glad to hear Hudson came through all right, especially at that age. That's one tough doggie.

Hence my reluctance to say anything... and I'm not really judging Blue in my comment, as I said only he has all the information. It's just that in my lifetime I've seen too many people put their pets through living hell and hold out until the bitter end simply because they can't let go.

If I've made some social faux pas I apologize, and Blue can delete my post. I will take no umbrage if you do so.

Sorry to hear about Hudson Blue... I wanted to reach through the screen and smack you up the side of the head when I read that post a few days ago, but I held my tongue. I'll put this as delicately as possible, are you doing what you're doing for your benefit or Hudsons?

I was in that position myself a few years ago. My dog had acute renal failure. I did what I could, even making her home cooked meals for such a problem which bought her another six months more then the vet thought I would get... but when she was no longer getting out of bed and had stopped eating for almost a week IE starving to death, I bit the bullet and had her put down. It was one of the saddest things I've ever had to do, but it was time, the dog was only suffering at that point.

Obviously only you can make that determination as you are the one who is there. I just hope that in your decision making the first and foremost and only consideration is what is best for the dog.

we need to play a crew golf game, btw.

We did one last night, kind of a PITA to setup as when you walk into the zone it just puts you in with a random group of PPL. Took a few tries to get an empty lobby so we could invite crew members.

What if we join it from a crew-only world? I wonder if that would make a difference.


I dont believe its possible to start a 'crew only' server, it will always top up with randoms. We are lucky if all of us get put into the same server after a mission ends.

So where should I get started in online? I'm lagging behind the rest of the crew, been doing the SP and been busy with the daughter/etc. I'm pretty low, like rank 5 or 6. Should I just grind races to catch up a bit? Last time I did a job with PHJF and etc I felt like I was just dragging everyone else down since I'm just wearing a shirt and using a pistol LOL.

We keep inviting you when we see you on, dont be shy, come play with us, we dont bite, hard. If you would like to level up some by yourself, skydiving. You can also do most of the low level missions solo. You can also start your session by doing a survival, this will give you access to weapons you cannot currently buy... and you can join us and just ask, we will gladly join you in a survival after which you will be loaded for bear... and bears in tanks!

EDIT Shooting skill - Survivor. Driving Skill - drive wrong way on highway, and um you know, dont crash. Stamina - run forrest run.

Ya last night was fun, nice to mix it up a little and do other things. The helicopter races were fun and ya forgot to mention the Lazer race! A new (I think) race Rockstar added where you have to race Lazers around LS, with missiles and guns! That was a blast.

Well Evilgrouse and I were on playing for a couple hours. Weve been able to do races, skydiving and survivor missions and it seems to be saving now. Still unable to do phone missions though.

But is it saving your progress? That's the main thing I'm seeing on the Support forums, is that people log off, get kicked, disconnected from PSN, whatever...and come back and they've lost money and levels.

I'll probably log in in a few and play anyways. Just don't like the idea of losing progress and cash, when it's been slow going since they nerfed the payouts. I had done about 5 Survivals this morning when I left the last one and got the Cloud error message about saving. I wasn't able to get back into another Survival, so I just waited in a job menu for awhile, backing out and repeating until it did finally save 20min later.

It was like that earlier, but at least saving seems to be working ATM... we didn't have any issues over the last few hours. We both stopped to eat, be back on in an hour or so.
