Yeah was good fun, we ended up having "one more race" about 20 times lol, the $80k was nice to bank too, down the drain sucks with randoms but its great fun in a party who all race clean (barring accidents lol)

If you're racing clean you're not racing imo. Perhaps I misunderstand racing.

Bought the turbo (upgraded to next level engine and trans also)for my Schyster Fusilade sports car so I hope it will have acceleration to compete with better cars in these races.

Finally success! Cleaned it up a little, added a background to make it a single element and give it a military patch kinda look, re-followed the instructions, and worked first time, hope you like it!

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I have about $230k and I was leaning towards buying an apartment/ house before I buy a nice car. Is this optimal? Any recommendations on a place to buy or type of place I should be looking for? Wait until I have more money?

Any help is appreciated.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

anyone else getting bored of this game? Can't believe im even saying it, but it's boring me and my mates and I feel like it's lacking in the good old GTA style.

I think GTA 4 game modes where better than GTA 5. Cops and crooks, turf wars, death matches, where all better. I'd trade parachuting and jet ski racing for that stuff any day.

And the heists/DLC is taking the piss. They said that stuff was going to be available at launch so why is it taking so damn long to get it released?

if you plan to purchase an apt, go for the $223k 10-car garage. its the cheapest luxury apartment. it sits like 20 stories in the air and you have a view of ls. the garage is cool looking, but that doesnt matter.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

It's natural to become 'bored' of GTA, it isn't immune from becoming numb in the human psyche. Just like everything after enough exposure it will become standard but that doesn't make it a bad game.

I think it's a great game and I am privileged to own it and be able to play it online when I please, but I just think R* are not being kind enough to players.

They ****ed the launch up (although I was lucky it worked for me and I had some epic laughing fits at my pals who couldn't get online and where raging hard in our party) and they axed some launch material which everyone was looking forward to a lot.

The heists, the editor thing where you can make your own races and death matches etc,

When I watched the trailer for GTA online, i was blown away, now when it launched I was in love, but now I just feel like they need to get their finger out and keep the fans happy, especially after such a balls up on release.

Get the heists out now!

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

It hasnt even been one month yet. ONE MONTH, and you're complaining that you dont have ALL the content they are going to release over the next year or so? They are still trying to fix online right now. Im sure thats a top priority over getting even more content out there for the 0.1% that have done everything so far.

im pretty sure its the opposite. 99.9% have done everything

The missions get boring, the parachuting and races is decent when there are a group of you, which isnt often, they need to revamp it asap

Think part of it too is they're still looking for bugs, since people have exploited like crazy selling infinite cars and farming jobs for hundreds of mill, guess they don't want that happening again or nobody will buy their cash cards. Something is bound to slip through the cracks though

Its been one month. The average person isnt past level 20. How long after the hiests come out will you be complaining there isnt anything to do because youve blown through all them as well?
