Re: GTA V - releases September 17

goofy, do a HALO jump over the base ftw, fly really high overhead so they don't detect you, bail out, aim for the hangars and wait till the last second before pulling the cord. The stars don't appear till you're almost on the ground, should have enough lead time to get airborne and away before you even see a tank. Had a nice fail though the other night trying it, a SAM took my wing off as I escaped so I ejected before the plane exploded. As I pull my cord another SAM shoots by and kills me, didn't look like a direct hit though, looked like the missile exhaust got me, pretty cool either way.

Other fun times at the base include buzzing the place in a stuntplane, using the cinematic camera and dodging missiles at the last moment, looks great when you pull a barrell roll as one misses. Trying to steal the Titan now, that's just impossible, can't even get it to the runway before a tank blows my ass up. Only slightly more impossible than stealing a 747 from the airport, managed to get off the ground once but the engines were shot and crashed it.

- another jet is taxiing directly in front of mine's hangar and sorry, the jets don't talk off quite fast enough to just hop over it

And when I finally got it last night was the first (and only) time I've ever not had to deal with dodging anti-air missiles, that doesn't happen to you?
I go to the hangar just to the right of that red dot. It's enclosed so even if the alarm is raised and they are coming at you they can't shoot and by the time you accelerate to the hangar door you can take off. Just drive a car into the hanger and you're good.

Never had a jet taxi in front of me but I have knocked a few responding jeeps over on the way out.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Rockstar said they would make an announcement prior. The only thing they have confirmed is that Australia will go online October 2nd. Assuming everyone goes on at the same time, that's 10am EST / 3PM UK at the earliest, right?

Joined, but be forewarned that I've never played an online game with other people before. I'll likely be a huge liability.

You're welcome.

Access to GTA Online
Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with your copy of Grand Theft Auto V. On October 1st there will be a small downloadable Title Update released on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. Upon installation of that Title Update, direct access to begin GTA Online will be unlocked in your GTAV game menu. You will be able to jump right into GTA Online via the 4th (bottom) slot in your GTAV character wheel. We’ve received many questions asking for a specific confirmation of what exact time GTA Online will be available but of course this is contingent on both Title Updates becoming available on each console’s network. As a general timeframe, we do expect the Title Update to become available on PSN and Xbox LIVE starting around 7AM ET tomorrow morning, and your best bet is to stay tuned throughout the day here at the Rockstar Newswire and by following us on Twitter and Facebook where we will be keeping everyone updated.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

There's going to be so many dumb kids online that you'll all be fine. Team things people shoot each other and don't try/races people just try to crash into the leader. If there's any team based ones (heists please) simply not shooting each other and going to where it says will make you above average.

I'm on the 360 as well.

ugh at the achs being mostly collection style achs rather than actual fun ones :/ Been mostly exploring/collecting today but it's more boring than I thought it would be.

Thought I'd seen all the Trevor ones (ok he got drunk somewhere or killed or is killing a guy then)
Spoiler:


Looks like online will hit before I try anything regarding the mystery stuff or just simply jacking things in semi hard places.

edit--at least you can't be as bad at flying the helicopter/airplane as I am. good lord I suck at that

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Does the XBOX version of GTO require Xbox Live Gold? If so, I feel like a chump for not buying the PS3 version, since I let my Xbox Live lapse like two years ago.
