Is GTA online down for anyone else? I'm on the PS4.

Yes. PS4 here, as well.

e: I'm able to play in a solo session, but not with others. So you can play to some degree.

Has anyone beaten the mission where you have to take el stupido to the airport? I've tried it 4 times this weekend and it seems to have bugged out every time.

If you mean "he stands there like a wax figure from Madame Tussaud's while you fend off a thousand law enforcement officials," yes, I have that same problem.

What properties do you all own? I had the Alta St. apt and a house in Paleto Bay since there was a garage and gun store right down the street, but the distance between the two is kind of a pain in the rear end, and apart from rare spawns (the custom Sandking XL and Rat Loader, both of which I've gotten and then flipped for cash), I'm not sure if this is worth the drive form Paleto Bay down into LS. Was curious as to what the rest of you are doing and your rationale.

Have to say the one good thing about Paleto Bay is that the police station always has an armored car or chopper parked in the back for easy access and it's a block away. I'm trying to pull off that deal where you get four stars so I can hijack a Blaine County SUV and garage it, but I keep getting killed. I'll never drive it, since it's completely impractical, but I want a pink, police SUV.

EST primetime has been pretty active. If that's when your active add a bunch of us to your friends list because joining friends is less broken than joining crew members.

This will sound dumb, but how do you add crew members to friends list? I was on yesterday doing a few missions with some goons (particularly sgt_driveby or something like that) and I just kind of hope I get job offers from goons.

I've always wondered why the buzzard's homing missiles don't lock on to other players. That would level the playing field a bit...

Granted, I was on a mission with some pubbies (the one where you get the homing device out of the Granger and then drive to the place where you hack the computer) and it was funny to watch two of the guys on the crew land their Buzzards twenty feet away from each other, parked on the ground and head-to-head just fire rockets at themselves while we waited for the guy hacking the terminal to finish.

It just looked so ridiculous and pointless, yet fun to watch.

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.

Whaaaat? I thought gang cars were the most profitable sell.

I would like to know more.

The real money is in the chrome and gold custom Dubsters that are found near Madrazo's house. They spawn every morning at the same turn from about 10:00 a.m. until about 1:00 from my experience. The trick is that you need one in order to get it to spawn regularly, so if you pick one up, put a tracker on it and insure it. Then, head up there, jack someone for theirs and take it to LSC where it will sell for a little over $23k. If you move fast enough and have room in your garage, you can nab two per game day. That can net you about $23k every 48 minutes.

I was spectating (I didn't get invited ) and that was the most bizarre cavalcade of a race I've seen.

Although I did have fun with the few minutes I was on with some of you when I took the armored car and then firetruck out for a spin.

I only end up doing stuff with pubbies, unfortunately.

I think I actually made my voice hoarse from screaming at the TV while trying to do races to unlock more parts. It's not that I'm bad, but everyone else has super-modded cars and is beating me. Seriously, the most frustrating part of the game. I had to stop out of frustration and then did some contact jobs with some of the worst pubbies I've ever played with. I think I've got some bad juju today.

Since there's a "Max health increase" popup at every level so far (98) does that poo poo continue indefinitely forever? Are the odd level 1000 players I see running around with ungodly gigantic health pools?

Does it even have any impact on your health because I feel no less squishy than I did starting out, really

Doesn't feel like it to me. I was at max health and got killed by an NPC with two rifle shots and I'm at level 70. Almost seems (to me) like the health/damage ratio scales, although I could be and am totally wrong.

I think I did most of the swearing since I suck at racing and have a mouth like a sailor. It was frustrating if you were taking it seriously, but funny as hell since the pileups were so bad. You just get used to seeing "digitalprophet 1st place" and move on.

I am very late to the game here - how do I get my hands on one of the modded Dubstas?

I don't have one currently to spawn them.

For the chrome, it's like the hearse. Pretty much need someone to spawn it for you, but I got lucky and found one on my own. I have one, so next time on, I'll get you one if you want.

e: I'll be on tonight, probably from about 7-9 EST.

double e: If you've got a hearse and can spawn one, I wouldn't mind that as a tip. If not, no worries. Happy to get you the Dubsta either way.

I've got a (bright pink crew-colored) hearse. Basically you just loop around the block with the church and cemetery, yeah?

At this point, you have to be in a hearse to get one to spawn. I've yet to see one in the game, and I've been by the spawn points countless times.

Pretzel Rod Stewart posted:

Oh when I said "you" I meant "me". Like if I wanted to help people spawn one I would just drive around the block?

Exactly. Same happens with the silver/gold Dubsta. Those will spawn without you being in one, but the odds of one spawning when you hit that one intersection while in one are 100%.

Hence, if anyone needs a Dubsta, let me know. If anyone wants to hook a brotha up with a hearse, also, let me know.

I like how in online they decided to substitute "nigga" with "dude."

You will hear black guys in the game yell at you "You my dude, right?' and "What up, my dude?"

Unlike in story mode, which sounds like Dave Chappelle wrote the dialogue.
