Yeah, that makes sense actually.

You could try the old rubber-band trick and go for a walk - something like a half-hour or 45 mins of continuous sneaking will about max your bar.

For fun, I like to raid Grove Street. Steal the purple Voodoo (or whatever it is), respray it green and leave it back. Tough to do the second part without dying, though.

'Cargobombing' is fun, too - pick up cars with the Cargobob and drop them on traffic. Gets old pretty quick, I suppose, but it's an amusing diversion. You can put stickies on them for extra effect.
Awesome, thanks. I was just going off of what the stats menu said for increasing the various skills, and a lot of the information online seems to be outdated thanks to game patches.

I'll check out the voodoo van and cargo bombing.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Is anyone else having this problem?

http://www.geek.com/games/gta-v-is-c...-2009-1571490/

It sounds like GTA5 is causing older Xbox's to crash. I was able to play it just fine for a long, long time but lately it's virtually unplayable.

I even went and bought a new power supply because I thought mine was messed up somehow. When I got home I played COD mw2 for a while, then left the xbox on for hours while sitting on the mw2 menu screen.

So I assumed the problem was solved until I popped in GTA to play some golf. Within minutes my xbox auto shut-off just like it had been doing.

I was actually relieved when I google'd this because at least my other games are playable and honestly I don't really play GTA all that much beyond a few rounds of golf here and there.

I wonder if Rockstar will refund me the money for the game? It would feel wrong to ask for the money back because I've definitely already gotten my $65 worth. But on principle it seems like I should probably make them "pay"?

Meh, it's probably going to come down to me being too lazy to do anything about it.

Just figured I'd post this here because this is the first I've ever heard of this being a wide spread issue.

Just put my copy up for sale on CL because I'm not going to buy another 360 just to play a round of GTA golf here and there.

If they come out with heists and a casino or something else that seems sick I may rethink that, but for now...

Goodnight, sweet prince.

Welp, there goes that theory.

Just happened again while playing mw2. I was able to play for way longer though.

****. Well it might be time to upgrade to either a ps4 or xbone.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Your 360 may be close to the end of it's lifespan. I've had mine for two and a half years. Hopefully mine lasts another year or two if I'm lucky. Hopefully xbones will be cheaper by then and gta 6 is on those.

Yeah I've had this one a while. If I get another one it will be either my 7th or 8th 360. Hard to keep track at this point lol

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

lol, you might as well get an xbone. Really don't see the point of getting another 360 at this point unless GTA 5 is THAT important to you. I mean, I love the game, but I'm not about to shell out 150 bucks or so for another 360 if mine craps out tomorrow.

GTA isn't (at all), but Gears of War 1 is. I've been playing that game since release and it still gets my heart pumping like no other game ever has.

It took me about ten minutes to realize there's no way I don't get another 360.

Grand Theft Auto Online will be down for maintenance beginning tonight at 9PM Eastern Time. http://rsg.ms/1a75iST
The moneypocalypse has come...

Time to buy everything I can buy and stock up on ammo. Fully expecting for my character to have no money by tomorrow. (I was gifted about 400 million).

Hopefully this means heists are almost here. I doubt it but I can dream.

I mean, I was having fun with the game before I was gifted a large sum of money. But not having to worry about money or how much things cost made the game easier to enjoy for me.

I just got done going on a spending spree. Bought everything I could possibly buy from Pegasus. Bought all the warfare stuff. Already had the tank. Bought all the planes and all the boats. Not sure if I'll ever use the boats though lol. Bought all the masks I could buy as well as much of the clothes. Refilled all ammo so I should be good to go.

Now if rockstar goes and takes all that away and all my cars away I'll be pretty pissed.

Just logged in to socialclub and have $550k in my bank of the $4b. Not even mad. I really do hope they reset all the fake lvl300+ people though.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Got $440k left according to the social club, which I'm pretty happy about cos I was below that constantly before the gifts. Apparently they're not taking cars etc you've bought, so can always sell dem Adders anyway, but they're probably gonna troll us by blocking sales of pre patch cars though. Don't really mind either way, I was getting bored of unlimited money tbh, only so many cars you can buy and mod. Wonder if they'll throw heists in at the same time, sure I read somewhere they were coming this month.

Kinda nice to see them fixing the money glitch. My buddy and I play a lot and a contact of his offered to give us each $100M. Turned it down as I assumed I'd get bored on god mode.

Still doing it just in case.
This appears to have worked for me, at least, somewhat shockingly. Not sure if Rockstar honestly don't care or if they're just incompetent, but happy days.

I didn't even bother to make a second character with a garage full of Adders, I'm one of the rare ones but I don't really mind the grind aspect of the game. I certainly see why a bunch of people don't like it though.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Truthfully, I'm not very good so I tend to use a lot of ammo and it all adds up.
