Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Playing as Franklin, I jacked a logging truck on the highway and rolled it over causing a massive traffic jam on one side of that highway. A bunch of drivers stuck in the traffic jam showed up as red dots on my radar and got out to fight me. After I knocked out the 4th pissed off driver the cops started showing up. I then jacked another truck and ran over a bunch of cops/SWAT members. Threw a couple grenades at the cars stuck in the traffic jam, got 5 stars, and then ran an FIB Granger off the side of the highway. Couldn't stop the big-rig in time and Franklin plunged to his death.

Best $5k Franklin will ever spend

I haven't been able to connect to the bawsq market for 2 days. The other one works fine. It keeps saying it's down for maintenance, anyone have any idea what's going on?

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Finished the story 2 nights ago and have just been trying to escape 5 star wanted levels over and over. It's fun because it requires a plan to get away from the cops. Those ****ers are everywhere at 5 stars. I've cleared them twice and both times were intense. There is a somewhat cheap way to do it but meh, more fun coming up with new scenarios.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

God the level of detail in this game is astounding. Still having jaw dropping moments and I hope they continue forever.

Last night while just ****ing around shooting people and stuff I got into a chase with the cops. While driving and spraying them with my uzi, I shot one of the cops close behind me on the driver's side, he died, the partner in the passenger side seat took over the wheel while leaning over trying to gain control of the cop car while his dead partner was just limp over the wheel. Was just a wow kind of moment, like something you see in action films.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

I didn't start doing strangers and freaks missions until after completing the story. I didn't realize how much stuff they unlock. Some of them are hilarious, too.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

So my wife an i picked this up yesterday, and me being the super awesome husband that I am let her play first. She played for awhile and saved her game, etc etc. Today, I played while she was at work, and saved my game, and with the second game, the save slot moved to number 1. In the time I played, I maxed Franklin's shooting at the range to 100, and got a majority of golds.

This afternoon, I went out to get something to eat and my wife played a bit more. Of course, since my game was now in slot one, she immediately overrode it with her save.

Pretty sure that calls for an FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.jpg

Yeah, you do. The BAWSAQ prices are mostly based on the actions of the global player base.

What is the relevance of getting only silver or bronze on missions? am I missing something by not getting golds yet? Also am I getting penalized somehow for using the skip mission option? On tremors first mission I. Gave up because I'm more of a run and gun and that mission is definitely not that

I use taxis extensively and just pay extra to skip to the location. I highly recommend it.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Just finished the mission where I felt like Frank Sobatka. Love this game, haven't ran into a mission I hated yet.

Also, what station is Regulate on? Mostly listen to West Coast Classics and still haven't heard it yet.
