News Comments > GTA Online Tiny Racers Update & Tax Refund

Log in and play GTA Online on PS4, Xbox One or PC at any point between now and Sunday, April 30th to be eligible for a GTA$425K tax refund compliments of the San Andreas State Treasury Department, to be deposited in your Maze Bank account during the month of May.

Like that matters after recovering my stolen/hacked account with 4 properties, yacht, 60 cars, and 107 million dollars.

They weren't even trying to make a whole game, just import the RDR map into the GTA V engine. It's been done with almost every other GTA game by now and they get away with it because they don't provide any of the actual game files, just a tool that pulls from copies of the games you provide. It almost makes you wonder why they're being especially protective of RDR...


PORT PORT PORT!!!!!

A man can dream.

If Take-Two are smart, they would hire them and will give them what they need to do it properly.

Assuming Take 2 didn't port it. It'd be genius, like a GTA V release.

Release RDR2 on consoles, release RDR PC port. 1 year later, RDR2 for PC. Much more interest due to new gamers being introduced to RDR, and guys with good PCs will still likely buy RDR2 on console (if they have one), like GTA 5, due to no PC announcement.

That's my dream anyways. i just want RDR on PC damnit.

and if EA or activision tried to make this game, it'd cost more and take longer because they wouldn't be as dedicated. CIG is a purpose-built organization


GTA 5 was made for less money (made, not including advertising) and in 5 years.

Your comparisons are out to lunch. A dedicated, established dev team would have done this sooner, and cheaper. I dont understand how you think building a company as you go along is cheaper/quicker than using established, proven sources with a track record of releasing finished games and not selling partial ones...

And comparing Chris Roberts to Elon Musk to missing dates ? Time to get the blinders off.

Renegade was one of those games that the demo was so complete that I never felt the need to buy the game. I probably had 50 hours in the demo. It was a good map - I could basically singlehandedly dominate it and win for my team, even with the team objectives. Looking back, maybe this was because the skilled players bought the game and I was solely playing newbs, but... still really dug the demo.

All I remember is one of the fields (in between bases) with a few large rock/hill formations to hide behind. The tank vs tank battles that happened on it were amazing.

Vehicle driving, cars/trucks weren't too bad. Its still no racing game style driving but better than some I've experienced. The helicopter flying feels off, can't place my finger on that one but its funny.


Helicopters are just slow to start.

Hold forward (pitch down?) / ascend for about 10 seconds, then let go of forward. You'll keep your speed, and now forward/backward just control your elevation. You keep a good rate of speed and change altitude quickly.

The attack helicopters make short work of convoys, lots of fun.

I didn't play this, but from the videos it looked like Just Cause: Ghost Recon.


There is a radio clip when driving that starts with a chime/bell like Just Cause (chime) that combined with the car, scenery, and driving responsiveness gave me just cause 2 flashbacks.

I also liked the closed beta. It's great cause you can make your AI teamates do nothing - they can't be spotted or ruin you, allowing you to scout a camp/base and take out sentries in order to not raise any alarm/stay undetected the whole time. Was enjoyable but I ran out of stuff to do.

Funny that they test it on Blizzard's game(Overwatch) instead of their own game.

This was my first thought from my just woken up brain. I think it's really the codename of the human checkers instead, but amusing none the less.

Why not? It'd give people more reason to whine at valve

Battlefield already did Vietnam, and it wasn't exactly their best selling title. They may always give it another whirl, of course.

As far as good Vietnam shooters go, try Vietcong (for single player.) It's old and sometimes rough around the edges, but it was a very memorable game.

Oh my god. The menu music.

I could listen to the first bit (before it goes into a harder rock) on loop forever.

Lego games go on sale for $5, great time killers. Good value at that price too.

That brings us to a average of 2,755. Yep, could be a looooooong winter

Wow. Must live a real interesting, busy life that he has to come back to a place where no one likes him and is constantly forced to leave against his wishes.

Does bring interesting imagery when you think of him though.

So now, a ponzi, "In its basic form", is a metaphor. Despite being "precisely what a Ponzi scheme is.".

(a ponzi, in it's "basic form" is a ponzi.)



Kxmode wrote on Dec 27, 2016, 14:49:
He's referring to the idea that new concept ship sales basically provide the funds to finish already pitched concept ships that people bought. In its basic form, that's precisely what a Ponzi scheme is.

No, it is not, and what you said does not describe a metaphor, or an illustration. It describes a misunderstanding of what a ponzi scam is.

In other words, it's not a literal Ponzi scheme in the truest sense but has many of the same enrichment symptoms for those who bought into it early like LTI and early concept ships that haven't been created.

Jesus, you talked shit you did not know about, and rather than concede you talked beyond your experience, you try to act like your assumptions were correct.

This is in NO way a ponzi scheme. Ponzi schemes are VERY specific. Just because YOU only know of one financial scheme does not make it applicable to ANY other scam.

Is money being returned to investors, tricking them into thinking their investment are/were profitable, so they/word of mouth results in further investments, which are returned by the previous investors?

No? really? That's not how Star Citizen works?

Then it's not a fucking ponzi scheme. In any way, shape or form.

You can buy Star Citizen right now and download something that is playable. This is not vaporware. There are regular updates about Star Citizen, you can see the development of the title progressing, there are playable modules you can download and play right this very minute.

You can't call something that's in early alpha a delivered product until it reaches gold status and is a published product. It will remain vaporware because of the massive out of scope promises made.

For someone who likes to pick apart specifics, maybe you can explain the Ponzi scheme Star Citizen is.

The rest of us seem confused.
