Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Also anyone own two houses yet? If you buy another one you still have both and extra garage space right?

Scherer, I think you'll be fine with that apt. Pretty sure it's considered high end.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I think I bought the nut worst garage. It's under a bridge and is a pain in the ass to get to, and though I thought they fixed the garage bug, my free car from Legendary Motorsports disappeared.

It actually bugged out on me where it put two identical modded out Ballers in my garage. Sold one for 50k shrug.

Yeah wtf it now costs $60 for 32 SMG rounds, it's prettty easy to blow through 200-300 rounds in a deathmatch and then you only get paid out $500 at the end. I'm pretty sure you pay some kind of fee just to play a mission too, the pricing is awful

In my very limited time playing online I've made decent money on races. Even in a 5-way race where I came in last I think I got over $1k. Haven't got around to deathmatch yet but yeah that doesn't sound very promising at all and I've heard others making the same complaints.

It's so lame that you can't change your default car in SP mode. I want the Bugatti waiting for me out front not the stupid 4 door Audi or the Charger looking car.

i had the same garage at first, and i actually thought it was in the perfect place. right next to a lsc and ammunation. only down side was the police station across the st. so whenever you steal a car they're instantly on you. extra rp i guess.

just call the insurance company from your phone and select the elegy. its like 1200 to get it back.

i didnt get too far, but i always select the worst gun (in this case the micro smg) in that section of the wheel, and purchase the rounds from there. it loads every gun in that section for the cheapest amount of monies.

Thanks for the advice! I thought it was lost forever, though I think buying the garage took every last bit of my money.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

you dont really need the elegy unless you plan to join races that allow modified cars so you can gradually improve it.

theres faster / better cars you can just steal / park in your garage and use during missions or w/e.

Your apartment and garage are exactly the same as every apartment that is priced higher. I would keep the one you have because it's right by Mors Mutual.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

So, what's the general consensus on gta online? Is it pretty fun? Like more so than the regular one player offline game?

I haven't actually played online but have had the game since it was released. My xbox live has been expired for month or so and just haven't gotten around to renewing it.

Just wondering if it's worth it. Probably the only reason I would renew xbox live again is to play this game online. Still a bunch of problems or have those pretty much been patched up by now?

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I would say its amazing if youre going to be in a crew. Rolling by yourself i find significantly less fun. Ive not had any problems since the first week. I can see myself dipping back into it as well whenever they add new missions and stuff to do.

Elegy is a sick sick car imo. Sticks to the road beautifully.

still haven't been to mors location. the one time i wanted my elegy back, they said i could come to their place and pick it up, and the logo never showed up on my radar. but the next time i went to my garage it was in there.

cool to know they're all the same tho. no reason to "upgrade" then.

idk the names that well, but the ocelot for sure (if thats the one you get like $8k for at lsc?) the same vehicle franklin drives in story mode, the mustang looking car with racing stripes and theres one more i forget the name of. as well as any bike you can get your hands on.

also, these vehicles would all be free and he was low on funds. really thats the only reason i brought it up. elegy does have awesome handles tho.

Even by yourself it's pretty fun and not much different from sp mode outside of no over the top Story arc.

True dat. I was playing earlier and got in a LTS w Kruze and cheddaBOB14(?). No one else joined. They teamed up vs me. I'm level like 15. Kruze is lvl 99 and cheeda was like 60. Obv it was over in like 30 seconds.

Got pissed bc chedda was talking smack and I didn't have a mic and it was way lopsided. Ended up putting a bounty on chedda, which kruze got. Then they start chasing me in a heli, lol.

Was all good though, as chedda and I grinded Down The Drain for a bit w some other 2+2'ers. 2+2 crew seem to be growing in #'s.
