Well after dicking around with my buddy who just started playing GTA, tonight I start running missions and leveling up again. I miss my jerry can and stickies oh so much..

After that, death will once again rain down upon these insolent fucks.

Also, can someone accept my buddy into LLJK? He requested an invite. jayisspecials.

Impulse control is for pussies. You know you want it.

As badly hosed as online is right now, it just gives me an excuse to run missions solo and race when I can connect to build up my levels and unlocks again. A day off and on of this and here I am at nearly level 20 with my Sultan, Akuma and Sabre back. Unfortunately my Infernus will take awhile..

How did people make those maps in cut-off areas before? I've tried entering the creator with an SP-unique area changed or opened up to no avail on PS4.

e: WELP lobby crash just as I was going to try to figure out mic VS voice balance

e: If you're on currentgen online and not finding AI cars behaving weirdly, lagging like mad, doing U-turns where they shouldn't like they're at a bath, or that the framerate regularly dies and becomes unplayable once you get up on a tallish building and hanging around doing action, I want to know your secret. I'd jam an SSD into my PS4 if that would fix it. This is ugly and not acceptable and not fun.

I'm on PS4 with the digital version and have had none of those issues. I'm just experiencing disconnects and such. If I just want to run missions or roam around wrh a buddy, I can do that with nearly zero issue.

No clue what's happening with yours.

Well last night was.. better. For awhile at least. My buddy, Kelly and I managed to stick together for awhile and chased some white dots, which was what this game is all about and should forever BE about. Every day seems like a slight improvement over the previous. So, by Christmas, it might actually be somewhat stable and good again like it eventually (somewhat) got to be on the PS3.

This is also the first generation where actually using a mic as well, which is actually better than I expected. Now if I can just refrain from cursing so much. Ah, gently caress it.. that's fun in and of itself.

Well last night was the first right-proper night of GTA working okay on the PS4. I landed in a server with LLJK, had upwards of 20 people in it, and lasted for well over an hour. Which gave me ample time to gently caress with a bunch of dudes that were drowning everyone else out on the mic.

So, I spent the next 30 minutes taunting them and attempting to get "down with the block," and gain some "street cred," with them. Alas, I am merely a "stupid rear end in a top hat cracka that is as low as bird poo poo." I am a horrible person who deserves death..

Haha, I liked my homey. He was so nice.

I'm sure I was the only one who enjoyed that, but it's just so hard to pass that up. And as long as they keep talking back, I'll keep going. And they.. just.. kept.. going.

"So if I want to be down with the block, I should lay someone down and wash them as you say?"

"gently caress you rear end in a top hat!"

Fake edit: plus their homophobia was quite confusing. "Muhfuckah's enjoyable human being rear end talkin' 'bout washin' people. I'll gently caress him in his enjoyable human being rear end if he tries to wash me!"

...right.

Edit: The main rear end in a top hat would have been fun to trade kills with had he actually stopped spewing stupid poo poo. He had some pretty decent skills. Better than me by a metric mile. Just would not shut up.

I hadn't even thought of that - the DLC weapons really are a game changer for the lower levels.


And really, there weren't a ton of RP glitches through. I've been playing regularly since the beginning on and there were only a couple that people used, and they didn't last too long. Nothing like the money glitches - of which there will be more I am sure.

The only RP glitch I recall was on capture the flag where you could pick the case up and hover over the drop zone in a helicopter. I did that a couple times for about an hour and jumped 30 levels. That was quite nice.

I just miss the cash simply so I could afford to buy and sell cars until I found one I really liked.

I feel like the Sultan thing is an in-joke that I don't get. It's a terrible car. The Oracle is objectively better in every possible way as far as 4-door cars go. Is it the rarity or something?

Leave. Now.

It may just not be your preferred car for whatever reason. But for me--and I know plenty of others--it has a really great weight/power ratio, is all-wheel drive, and has juuuuust enough slide to it that it whips through corners.

Add in how much oomph/value you get each time you upgrade it, and it's dirt-cheap replacement costs(particularly when Kelly throws stickies like its fuckin' amateur hour. ) and it's a winner in my book.

The oracle just feels heavy and slow. No matter how much j upgrade it. Meanwhile, I can chase down pretty much anyone in my Sultan--even if they're in a super car. It's just. That. Good.

Anyone want to get me up to date on popular tactics and methods to gently caress with people ? Messing around in SP I see how they increased the amount of cars that spawn in traffic, giving me ideas of making road blocks with buses/semis.

I just came back after selling my PS3 early last year. To my eyes, not much has changed.

I still chase people down, sticky them, and blow their shut up.

I still cargobob people's cars to impossible locations.

I still block people in stores with their cars.

If I'm broke, i Jerry can people's rides and let them eat the insurance costs.

Passive mode is weird and hosed up now. You can't kill people in passive mode (that I've found) like you used to do. Though I understand you can pick up a car in a cargobob, go passive, and people will destroy their own car trying to shoot you. That sounds delightful.

In other words, it's not changed much. Just prettier and the option for more people on the server.

Business as usual

Further car chat: What are the current top dogs in the sports class and super class? I see so many people driving Zentornos in races that I feel like I'm missing out in my Entity. And my sports cars consist of a Carbonizarre and two Sultans and both make terrible choices in races.

In my opinion, it doesn't matter what the "top choice" is in either class. I race a maxed out Infernus in super, and a maxed out Sultan in sports. And most times, I'll beat any pubbie. Pick a car that suits your driving style and work with it. I don't WAN'T to race a Zentorno and I don't WAN'T to race a Massacaro because everyone else has them. It makes me beating those cars all that much sweeter.

You actually don't need one to start spawning them at all. It's just quicker if you have one.

If you don't have one already, you go up around the curve from the intersection that they spawn in, sit in the driveway of a house, and one will eventually spawn. It did it for me and I was in my sultan.

Once you have one, it gets much easier. They spawn from 7 - 3p. I tend to pick up three in that time period, and that's taking into account me driving to get one, then driving it all the way down to the airport garages, and then going back up. I will load up a 10-car garage with them, then sell them all off and repeat. It's an easy $365,000 in between missions and races and what-not.

Kelly, if no one helps, I'll be in tonight and will help you snag one.

"Triangle"
"You have to hold triangle. It charges."
"gently caress!"
"God drat it!"
"loving fence!"
"God damned hair pin.."
