I hope people manage to mod the PC version to have snow on demand, GTA5 with snow is really pretty and only having it on for like a week every year is moronic.

Yeah it was brilliant. I hope they introduce it again sometime. I heard a few complaints about visibility whilst flying, but I liked that. I think it added to the appeal for me, actually.

Yeah I can imagine it was a problem with jets but it added so much atmosphere IMO. Also the white roads actually improved visibility in the city on PS3 at least, because cars and certain obstacles stand out more and don't drown in a sea of grey as you're racing down a street with 200 mph.

Rockstar got rid of the snow because people weren't buying shark cards during the DDOS attacks on PSN and Xbone Live servers. This is our punishment.

Dudes, again, it wasn't lizard squad or whatever ddosing, it was the fact Live and PSN always get hosed up on Christmas because of all the people getting new consoles and games and downloading their patches and poo poo.

Either way, it would have been cool to see the snow. Should have probably been a more-than-1-day thing but that's Rockstar I guess

I'd be cool if the game had more localized weather in general. Instead of raining and snowing everywhere we could have a lot of rain the north and snow in the mountains.

I wish the snow would have tracks in it on the roads where traffic is, but that would involve some sort of mapping that the game currently doesn't have.

They can track skid-marks and so this would be fairly simple to do.

I loved flying in the snow. I really hope they add snow as a possible weather option more often because it's brilliant. I remember seeing the first screenshot of North Yankton and getting really excited for a Grand Theft Auto game with snow, it's a shame it was only around for that one area of the game.

Got Proximity Mines, Firework Launcher + fireworks a stocking mask that looks kind of like a balaclava, some RP and a carbine.

Special Crates presumably will continue to drop.

They dropped through New Year's last year, I believe.

Is PSN still down? My better half and I have actually resorted to rock, paper, scissor to decide who gets the PS4 (he won) and now he can't do too much of anything in Far Cry 4 other than SP. We just keep timing out when trying to connect anything to online.

Seems it. My oldest kid is trying to play FIFA 15 and can't connect.

Also, my boys love the song "El Rey Y Yo" that's played on Radio East Los. I play it in my (actual) car, and can't tell them that I usually listen to it while I'm running from Hispanic gangs that I just stole meth from while firing an SMG out the window.

I'm buying a new PS3 tomorrow and
At least they're extending the christmas gift period a bit.

"Due to issues with PSN & XBL connectivity, we're extending the GTA Online Festive Surprise Christmas Day inventory gifts for the time being."

Doesn't get into specifics but I take that as a plus. Maybe snow will return for New Year's.

I had a strange bug with the crate drops today. I picked up a crate in one lobby, and switched characters. In the new lobby, I got the 'A crate has dropped' notification as soon as I left my garage. I thought that I would be too late, but I drove over to the crate anyways. I was the first to arrive at the crate, even though I had to drive from Del Perro Heights to the beach north of Fort Zancudo. It was as if no-one else had received the crate message.

The crate wasn't there, even though it showed on the mini-map. I drove over the spot where it should have been, and then the package fell from the sky without a crate. I picked it up, and it had all the items that should be in a special crate.

Macklin, you son of a bitch

Here's a stupid question. How do I sign back into PSN on the PS4? I turned it on just now for the first time since Tuesday and I am not signed in. Does it automatically drop you when you lose connection in a mass outage like this? Does it come back up on its own and sign me in again or do I need to try it on my own? I see under the PSN menu a "sign out" option. I assume this means I'm already signed in and PSN is just down?

I don't understand Sony et al doesn't pressure Twitter to just shut down the accounts of the people bragging about taking down these various services. Soon as an account gains traction, boom - step on it. If they wanted to they could absolutely do that. It would at least cut them off at the knees as far as propagating information goes.

Psn is still trying to fix the wreckage of a ddos attack. You don't have to do anything its just down and may be for a bit. There was a spell back in the day that was 2 months.

The 2 months were 2012 or 2013. But yeah regardless it hasn't been a great year for sony. No big though. The two months sucked, but you learn to spend time elaewhere.
