Picking up Simeons high priority car with a cargobob, flying straight up and dropping it on them from a great height when they get there. Basically just trolling people lol
i like how you think

I'm still having problems with this, I'll get online, but as soon as I try to do a job it freezes either on the map or similar and I have to reset the ps3 from the console.

Anyone else having problems?

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I had this timing out/being kicked all the time but changed some settings in my modem and PS3. Fixed IP adress etc. Can't explain it myself, I just followed some guide on the internet. It was made specifically for my provider and in dutch so no use to you guys I think.
Here it is anyway: http://www.mbgclan.nl/forums/index.php?topic=6872.0
Never had problems since! And that was 1 week ago...

when in reality it's like you do about 20 missions and it gets super boring. you meet gerald and he says "steal the coke" "steal the meth" "steal the weed", eh ok ill just do the same **** over and over again.

then lester, same kind of thing, and martin, same thing. some of the missions are good obviously and im still enjoying the odd blast, but after a while it's like the same people, same missions, not many characters etc

in the trailer its like, yea meet all these new characters and open up new contacts and new missions and make it look as if it's immense when really its the same over and over. spawn with your car half a mile away, everybody drives to wherever you have to go, shoot a few guys, some noob gets popped, you do w/e has to be done and thats it. there's very little creative play and variety.

like career missions where absolutely sick, online doesn't even come close to the depth and quality of the single player missions. and think back to san andrea's, and all the mad stuff you could do, like learning fighting styles and robbing houses and turf wars and jet packs and working out and all the custom stuff you had.

this has not many clothes, a few tattoo's and yea stick a turbo in your car and stick some wheels on it, woo how amazing!!

nobody wants to play tennis, because it sucks, same with golf, go buy tiger woods, races are cool, but most ott you just get bashed by a few 10 year olds and lose.

the way you get into missions is a bit rubbish too, there's no flow and drive and sense of achievement, it's just hassle to find a decent mission that you don't end up getting kicked from.

then you get people killing you every 2 seconds and you lose money for it, people blowing your car up and running you over even if your passive mode.

or your driving down the street and the cops run you over and then come after you for it and start blasting you with shot guns, that's realistic!

i mean i like the game, and it's worth the money for sure given single player alone, and the first week of laughs (although that was mostly down to my mates not being able to play and raging epically in our party, threatening to do keepy ups with their xbox if it didnt work the next time they tried it)

but the video is misleading and im more upset with rockstar being idiots. this was supposed to be, and could have been, thee most epic game ever made and they did a half assed job and ballsed it up imo

everyone has got tired of waiting and being dissapointed with the fact that only a third of the game was released and now they have to wait for this and that, the game was delayed from march 2013, til september, then they said it wasnt gonna be next gen, then they said oh no online isnt for 2 weeks after launch, then it didnt ****ing work, then it turned out to be **** anyway

a bloody beach bum pack with a flipping buggy and a new gun isn't going to bring them back or change anyone's thoughts!! they have waited too long and ****ed people over too much

there was supposed to be tons of quality missions, heists, epic madness, lots of uniqueness and style, but instead its a bunch or repetitive missions and a few bits of clothing here and there with some crappy auto aim that ruins the combat and annoying characters like effin simeon ringing every 2 seconds. "you haven't forgotten about your old friend simeon, have you?" no unfortunately not, now **** off. why cant i block him!!?

ill not be getting GTA 6 and it makes me sad to say it i was the biggest gta fan ever in the history of man, but now R* have wanked all over me and i have to end the madness, they can stick the next game up their ass pipe

For any one not part of a crew, or those looking for a new crew to join; Sons of Anarchy PA (CROW) is looking for new members. Add me (PS3) ProfessorChaos32. Put Crow in subject line. We spend a lot of time grinding races and survivals and when heists start we'll grind the crap out of those as well.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Had an epic battle, me and a friend trying to takeout two bounties on a train (guess they set them on each other and waited for action). Kicked our asses for a good hour, even resisting Buzzard and fighter attacks. Finally got them off and somehow ended up fighting on an island for a while before another of their friends lifted them off by chopper and left us to swim back lol. Got another Buzzard and got my ass kicked again, ended up ditching in the Alamo Sea, saved another swim to shore by getting killed in the water. Free roam is so much fun sometimes

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I've gotten in the habit of jerrycanning people's cars whenever I come across them and then igniting them with the backfire. It's awesome, and probably pretty douchey too

Lol I had a fail doing that just yesterday, guy came after me when I had a bounty. I was on a hill and he tried to run me over but caught a lip and sailed over my head. Shot him in his car (a nice Lambo lookalike) and stole it, expecting it to be locked, but no, so I had a good rip around the city getting it nice and trashed. Called up the mechanic for my car with the intent of setting it on fire with the exhaust, poured the gas around it, for some reason the bastard wouldn't backfire. So I thought I'll pop the tyres and set it off with the rim sparks, didn't work either. Tried again with the backfire, no dice. Getting pissed off now and it looked like the original gas had gone, so poured some more. Turned around to check the trail and his car had disappeared on me, wtf. So I set fire to my own car instead, to hell with insurance, I'm not wasting $100 worth of gas

I robbed every store in the game, 18 total I think. Not counting the clothes stores or ammu-nations.
