I am sure a hacker knows all about rewarding and accomplished behavior. I mean, raping a chick with some mickeys is the same is getting laid right? Same result amirite guys? Nothing like work and not having to do it and get that sweet sweet payoff.


I don't seem to remember it this bad on the ps3 though, because it is like, after 2 hours(online) or 4 hours(SP) of playing, I am most assuredly going to need a restart of the system or game. I figured most of it was the transition from SP->MP->SP every hour or so.

I do feel obligated to say, I don't intentionally break games but I did get trained in on it, and I feel that has more or less seeped into my gaming veins and just sometimes makes poo poo happen for the worse, in most cases.

And I don't care about my flying for stat bar reasons, I care cuz I assumed it removed/minimized the helicopter "turbulence" wobble.

My opinion is like, probably wrong on this, or I might just be an ace, but I never really noticed a thing, going from my maxed pilot 123 character to my 35 (50s? skill) character. The cargobob blows no matter what.

The low flying test shouldn't be a problem if you fly with lowered landing gear. Even if you only get bronze in all tests you can level that skill rather quickly with the flight school (without you'd have to fly forward for x minutes to gain 1%). On my main, before the flight school was in, I faked landings for flying skill: Take a plane with retractable landing gear, take off, retract landing gear, lower it again and touch down, take off again as quickly as you can, retract and then lower the landing gear again, rinse and repeat. With a nimble plane with powerful engines like the Vestra you could do a lot of hops on LAX, turn 180, do more hops, after an hour or two I was maxed. They may have patched that, I don't know.

The effect on helicopter wobble seems minimal, but you will notice a reduction in fake turbulence while flying airplanes. I hate that flying model so much

Also, as I was flying out of the air force base a rocket hit the tail on my jet and although I could still fly I could not control my jet. Eventually the engine died and it sank me so deep in the ocean I had no idea which way was up.

We find ourselves in the concrete jungle called Los Santos as we search for the elusive and irresponsible White Dot. The White Dot's primary mating ritual is curious. It's mating call is made up of vague threats and its mating action is running head on into things. If you asked the White Dot to draw a straight line, you would end up with a Rorschach drawing. The White Dot spends much of its time roving aimlessly over the concrete floor, usually in an automobile, but occasionally on foot, completely impatient and unaware of the dangers that lurk in the shadows.

The Red Dot stalks its prey and here we see three of them, obviously in a hunting pack. A shot is fired from the Red Dot with the vantage point, drawing the White Dot's attention towards it as two other Red Dots in tandem approach with speed. The trap has been set and the White Dot confused and in its haste jumps into the nearest vehicle. This is exactly what the hunters want. It appears the Red Dots completely miss their target as they make a high speed run by their pray. The Red Dots appear to have missed him. The White Dot now beaming with confidence that he has survived the ordeal is suddenly engulfed in a horrific explosion. Curses and despair are heard in the air over the wails of laughter of the Red Dots.

The White Dot heals quickly despite its injuries as all of the Red Dots now circle it, each inflicting wound and wound, toying with their new found prey. When the White Dot finds that it cannot take the assault, it goes into a phased state of cowardice. Its passive mode. This mode is quite a marvel to watch as the White Dot can now phase in and out of matter attached to any of the Red Dots. But it is too late, the esteem it might have gained from its superior foes is now forever lost. Despite this loss of status, the White Dot does something unthinkable. It approaches the Red Dots and... what the hell is it doing thrusting like that?

Ahem, the White Dot is now far down the path of cowardice and while it may surprise one of the Red Dots with a sneaking and successful attack, the Red Dots are waiting to now punish their prey until it teleports angrily from that existence.

I feel like I've actually been on a Safari sponsored by Google now. Well done.

Last night a bunch of us were in a room with a young kid who told us he was LA Reid's son. When we of course laughed at him, he told us to "look it up on Safari" so we wanted to know why his dad was on a safari.

We just messed with him on and off for awhile. Then he told us he was a YouTube streamer...lots of hilarity. It was a good night for my voice chat to be stuck on "everyone".

It was funny how he went from resigned frustration, to anger, to shrieking like a five year old, and back around again. All the while not cluing in about 'Safari'. And the multitude of LA, Read/Reid and YouTube streaming comments was loving hilarious.
His begging of us to leave him alone near the end all the while was really almost sad. I wish he had joined the races with us.

Flying the Buzzard at 2.5 bars of skill, it seemed to me to be ultra responsive and totally awesome EXCEPT every 5 seconds or so it had this off-steer wobble. It felt very artificial and "applied", so I assumed it was "low skill"-gated.

I could be wrong about that. I was just assuming (hoping?!) it went away.

no that artificial wobble poo poo is the worst part of flying, thanks for nothing Rockstar. Raising your flight stat makes it happen less often but never goes away entirely. I think it also makes you better at maneuvering in the air but it's been so long since I wasn't 100/100 in the stat I don't know.

For people who don't want to do flight school but do want to boost it, fly under bridges while you wander around in the air. I think each one is a bonus to flight.

Well, as much as that sucks, having it happen less is still good.

Let me be clear, it's not THAT bad even at 3.5 bars. It's just... when you're trying to aim with a Buzzard, it's REALLY annoying.

I have a very specific goal...and that is to have no goals.

I can tell you that going from maxed on flying to a new character starting at 0, flying felt much more wobbly and difficult. Switching back to my maxed character, it seemed much better. You still have the turbulence, but flying seems much easier to control.

Some of the bridges are full on "are you serious?" levels of tight, where I wouldn't think they counted but they do. I did them in a Buzzard because the rotor span is narrow enough to go through a few of them where some helicopters are too wide. I would look up a guide, I would never have found them all.
