Was a small docu on tv here the other day about the law office or something like that in London who sort of ordered/firmly requested their employees to have these health apps running on their phone/watch and allow then in sight into it....

sorry I find that scary

Yeah, a little scary. After reading this article, I started looking through the 'Health & Fitness' app, which uploads your data to the cloud, which I'm not too comfortable with, even though they claim you remain anonymous. Nervous

GTA5 has pretty much sold me on buying a new computer. Mine runs it ok, but it's like 5-6 years old, and I know it can look better...


What CPU are you running?

An i7 960

Hmmm. I'm running an i7 2600K, 16GB Ram, and a 780ti, and I am almost running the game full-tilt-boogie 45-60fps. Depending on what video card you're running, that is probably the only upgrade you'll need IMHO. Your CPU has better memory bandwidth, but requires a bit more power, but overall performance is 'just about the same'. If you can swing it, the 980ti is probably right around the corner.

That sucks for the people whose accounts were hijacked and I hope Rock* gets it straightened out for them ASAP.

On another note, they also need to get the online MP crap worked out, so you're actually 'playing' the game more than looking at loading screens. Trying to connect with your buddies and/or crew can sometimes take longer than playing the game itself.

There is no doubt they still have a lot of things to iron out the Online/MP portion of the game to better streamline it. I've never seen/played the console version, but it almost seems like they ported that over and shot-gunned it to work on the PC side of things. /shrug

There were some good folk at 2k Australia, and now there are no AAA studios left in the country. This really sucks.

Yeah, that sucks. Hopefully the people that lost their jobs can create their own Indie studio and be successful.

They can just about add Battlefield Hardline to the list.

It's like a game that was released two years ago not last month.

Almost everyone's playing GTA V.

I went to rob a grocery store with a cement mixer last night. Didn't go so well.

Dude! I literally laughed out loud on that one. Too funny!
It was pretty hilarious.

I was running around doing stupid shit in the city when I got a phone call that I have to go to this grocery store.
I didn't pay much attention to the details so not sure if there were any. The game was telling me to get a car.
A cement mixer was driving down the road, I went in front of it the driver stops I yank the guy out and I remember he was saying something along the lines of "you gotta be fucking kidding me"
I drove to the store and the game tells me to point the gun at the clerk, he starts to fill the bag with cash but the cops are already on their way.
When he finally finish filling the bag I run out of the door and of course no other cars on the road except my lovely cement mixer. I hop in try to drive away from the cops, I think I ended up jumping out of the moving vehicle and swim across this river, managed to somehow get away but I was laughing my ass off.
Dumb criminals reality tv show stuff.

Now I'm literally crying from laughter, and almost choked eating some bread. Oh man, too funny. Thanks for sharing.

There's a camera mode you can set to high, but it's for 3rd person driving.

First person driving is very claustrophobic, and I don't use it much.
Oh my mistake, thought you said there was a camera option for in-car.

Yeah, it's pretty tight in there. I feel like like the FPS camera in general is a bit low, almost like you're 5 foot 5


People have also claimed that when you drive in first person, the car goes slower, to allow you time to react, but I never tested it.


Yeah, I tried driving in FP mode for a while, but it is hard to judge the perimeter of the vehicles; I was beating the crap out of the them backing into things, and especially side swiping other cars and objects. I switch back and for between 3P and FP in driving, but I think 3P is the way to go until I can acclimate to the FP view.

So much to do in the game, I just don't know what I am supposed to do next. What a newb I am.

Well, Amazon pulled through on their guaranteed delivery on release day, as my retail copy just showed up on my door step. I have to say I got my monies ($59.96) worth as it is a nice bundle: 7 DVD Booklet, Manual, and Los Santos fold-out map.

Loading up now. Hope to see you on the streets of Los Santos soon.

First GTA/RockStar game I've played, so I'm sure I'm in for a big/fun learning curve.

I wish they put this kind of effort into releasing mission and mod tools for the game.

Grin...I was scratching my head trying to figure out WTF the first sentence of your post was eluding to until I watched the vid.
