The Dodo is terrifically fun. Being able to stand on the side of plane that can land on water? Yes please.


We need to get some sort of dogfight going. You'd need either four or six people, two pilots, and at least one person on the side of each.

DodoJousting™ might just be the wave of the future. Thus far I've managed to have good impulse control and not PS4'd myself yet, but that may chance.

I do find myself wondering if Rockstar patched the Crew Playlist Challenges. I know sometimes you don't see a 250k one... but the uniformity of what I am seeing feels very... fixed. Every single thing is either 1,000 or 5,000.

For people who may be interested. Gamestop is selling shark cards for half off. It can be worth it if you are starting out. Just make sure you buy the card for the right system. It differentiates between PS3 and PS4.

do not but shark cards validating a f2p scheme on a game you already paid $60-120 is bad fiscal responsibility

You cannot buy the Cargobob, but you can buy the Titan. What's their reasoning?

Just yet another in a long line of design decisions in GTA:O that leaves pretty much everyone scratching their drat heads
The only reasoning that I could ever see them holding out on it was for future DLC but since the phone glitch allowed a number of us to grab it perhaps it got put on the back burner. But the fact that they put all the time into making the skycrane with the big rear end magnet on it, and then only allow it for like a mission and a ˝ in single player just further promotes more head scratching.

I_Socom posted:

Bringing this up again from a page or two ago... I'm really enjoying the first-person views but why oh why is Call of Duty the only game able to implement usable FPS aiming on consoles??

I've just been doing the firing range challenges to boost up my gun skill and precision aiming is a complete pain. It feels like the centre zone of the stick is fairly low-sensitivity, but the ramp up to faster aiming is just too quick as you tilt the stick further. Doing the SMG / AR challenges with the side-to-side target was a massive chore

geeves posted:

I haven't examined it myself and I haven't really noticed anything bad and attributed fast free aim changes (with, for example, the sniper rifle) to just my terrible dexterity. I wish the poster of that video could have had a separate segment with another game that showed it wasn't the controller but actually GTA's mechanics.

Hell, even with aim-assist the right stick aiming just doesn't feel that responsive. Like Socom said, there's a huuuuuuuuge deadzone in the middle of both sticks, to be honest. As someone coming from 360 -> PS4 it's pretty obvious. Still doesn't detract me per se but, as usual, it's one of those knowing-what-could-be things that could make the game just a lil bit better that they'll probably never fix or tweak...

I just love reading the intermittent nerdrage in this thread over turbulence in GTA. Flying in GTA is so much fun for me that I don't even notice it.

Policenaut posted:

What turbulence? I fly a jet or a buzzard 90% of the time and it feels the exact same as last gen to me.

In fixed wing aircraft, yeah flying is fun in this and the faux-bulence isn't a big deal. In a helicopter it is supremely loving annoying - like your guy has the constant coffee/meth jitters. It's probably the worst in the cargobob. You'll be hovering over a car to pick it up not even touching the sticks then all of a sudden WHOA COKE ME UP BRO


I mean, at least make it feel like turbulence instead of [every X seconds shake vehicle rinse repeat].

I want to say part of it is encouraging you to have a copilot because the TV guided missile cam is stabilized so it's really easy to put something on target, but it's dumb anyway.

To be fair a good set of goons can still gently caress poo poo up pretty impressively with TV missiles. If they flew faster it would be rage inducing for people on the ground.

Nah it's definitely like that with me as well - that was pretty much the first thing I noticed when I fired up 1st person mode for the first time. What's funny is that that video also highlights something that's plagued all GTA's since GTA3: The floaty input lag. Even when he does a big movement you can see how long it takes for a reaction on screen. That's always been their "thing".
