Heists tomorrow. Book it.

That's right, I'll be that guy who claims, later on, that I had insider info thanks to my good buddies at Rockstar.

Or you know, nothing will happen like we're all really expecting and I'll just be another person who is wrong on the internet.

Besides, I would really expect some publicity push from Rockstar over social media as a buildup for the heist release date, when it's decided upon.

Well, this is the most likely because we can't have nice (broken) things. I got my good mileage out of it, though...

The Dubsta is still spawning and the sad trombone trick is also working. It could be that the maintenance was to fix something on last-gen.

Unless there was a patch downloaded with it, I wouldn't expect it to be fixed, yet. It could be prep work for heists (which could require new / updated software so they are released smoothly) or just mean installing new and/or upgraded hardware to replace end-of-life servers and has no effect on anyone's consoles.

Considering their last major downtime (that I recall) was a year ago, having something like this scheduled every so often isn't surprising.

Doesn't work for me either, and I've been doing the exact thing that geeves was doing. What a weirdo bug to have going on for some people and not others.


geeves posted:

My best guess it's something related to one of the patches. Changing the minimap settings was probably one of the first things I did when this was released. It's great when small bugs cause us joy (sad trombone) but can come with some bad things like this.

This morning I nuked the game and all saves, let it download and install while I was at work and started from absolute scratch. I finished the prologue, joined online, and had the option do absolutely dick and nothing just like before. I have no idea what I can do to at this point other than to live with it.

Yeah I'm fairly certain this is all just backend prepwork for when the PC version comes out and fucks up all the GTAO login/auth servers for a third time.

Its so hard to come back to this after playing stuff like Dying Light, feels like I'm continuously wading through pudding

Some smoother, more natural controls for GTA 6 wouldn't go a miss at this point.

The first person parkour in Dying Light is pretty sick. I've only played it for a little but, but it is a lot easier to get used to than GTA.

They know nothing of hairpins or chicanes.

Pretty sure there are already half a dozen random awful-coloured suits. And there's probably already a clown face paint, right? But then again they can never have enough random garbage clothing updates. At this rate, we might get hiests at some point around the 1st of April.

YAWN

If only because there is no point to the captures and LTS and deathmatch modes. Losing pays out so poorly you don't get your money back on ammo. It is also very difficult to find people to play with on captures in particular. I like them, but I have plenty of money to screw around with. Someone grinding a lot isn't going to want to waste money on one that is set to owned weapons.

New races are cool though.

Same thing happened to me last night. I was hiding and a guy in a helicopter texted me in-game "can i kill u and give u the money after?" He eventually landed and walked right into it. I was further down the shaft () so I just heard a soft WHUMP and the message saying I'd killed him. After he respawned and flew away in his helicopter, I replied, "No thanks lol"
