Has anyone been seeing messages about friends failing heists or making big scores in the stock market? I've seen it happen a couple times in the past few days.

Yes, but only a PS3 one I'm afraid. It's not terribly exciting outside the novelty of watching livestock get knocked off bikes.

It's for PS4 also.

I just started playing online on the next gen version. How come they have 60 player missions and capacity, yet i'm never seeing more than 18 people in a session?

Never before seen proof that heists have been GHOST-PATCHED into the game! Like and subscribe so I can show you the random NPC that will unlock heists for you! Also zombies!

But seriously, that's pretty weird. I've seen the stock market thing once or twice but failing heists is new to me.

They are notices through social club internal to the game about things people on your friends list are doing in Single player story. It did that on 360 since launch. Did it again when I got PS4.

It takes too long for a job lobby to get up to 30 players so most people quit. 30 is the limit not 60.

The limit is actually 30 I believe, and I've definitely seen close to that number in a public lobby.

Ok that makes sense. I just changed over from PS3 and I never remembered seeing those there. Maybe because most people had finished single player by the time I started playing Online.

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 would love to see a full 30 person goon lobby, if only for all of us to get in a bus or two and just blow them up with everyone in them. OR do a passive aggressive goon brawl.

I think personally, the most goons I've probably seen in a single lobby is around fifteen. Which can still be a busload of fun. Even with the crew thread always adding new members, it seems we can never seem to get our poo poo together at the same time.

More people need to experience a geeves playlist and Horse Factory.

I made it halfway through the playlist last night and I spawned in first person unable to move during that race by the docs. That happened to me twice last night.

Fun up until then though - thanks geeves.

The list was great, I dropped out because after the Paul Walker tribute race I got stuck in first person and couldn't change my camera, and it was giving me a headache and some nausea. Which is odd because I can play in free roam in first person and do missions, but apparently I can't really race that way. Or maybe there was some other factor, I dunno.

phone -> jobs -> join a particular job type -> On Call

then you goof off in freeroam until you get pulled into a lobby. Or it fails to connect and makes a new lobby just for you which sits at 1 of whatever forever. Or you get a failure to join.

basically on call works sometimes but you should keep an eye on it and restart the whole process (by going to your phone, jobs, etc again) if it looks to have errored out.

Almost exactly what happened to me. I was able to look around, but totally frozen in place - everyone else took off and I was just sitting there.

I got stuck falling through the street in an infinite loop twice last night. Couldn't bring up any menus or move, just seeing the street every 15 seconds or so, then the screen going white and fading back.

Also a friendly note that after last night's playlist, I went back and added rockets to Ode To Geeves and Double Dare 2015. You're welcome.

It's a bet, you find challenges under playlists in the menu. You bet 250k in this case that you can do 5 laps of Criminal Records in 2:24. If you beat the time you win 500k. It seems to be something Rockstar doesn't like and they pull them fast.

The name of the challenge I just ran is ko. It is a 5 lap super car Criminal Records race . You need to have $250k in your bank account to play it and you can only play one challenge per day per character.

I'll have to check on my alt later today. I could only find a 20k one this morning :/

Edit: On a tangentially related issue to last night's playlist, I could only hear Ziploc and litteralygary after the first few races. So I had to judge how the races were going by Ziploc's "gently caress you!" count.

I think "God drat it" was used a lot more than anything else.

Unless it was Gary saying "gently caress you" in which case they were all directed at me. Because he loves me.

I am quite happy that Horse Factory has become a free roam slaughter masquerading as a race. But once again, jayisspecials had to end the fun by finishing the race

That other one with the alley by the LCS is a close second. Took me a few times before I realized I could go around.

On our way to hang out at the mine...


Inside the mine, when (I believe) a pubbie ordered an airstrike on us.


Later on, this idea came about again.


Cops were...displeased.


We decided to drop into the base. It went about as well as expected.


Fun times. My image quality is poo poo, but whatever.
