coventry maybe but wd a milton keynes GTA really be any cop? GTA needs a sufficiently large mix of ethnicities and immigrant factions to work successfully dunnit? which probably discounts a heap of cities on my list, tho it would be nice to see them stray from that formula (I might be getting GTA wrong here btw, I'm not the biggest fanboy, feel free to correct me)

delhi wd be ace but I don't think the tech could handle the density of ppl req'd to be faithful

Hey, guys! Love this conversation.

I voted for Tokyo. With the lights and tall skyscrapers and dense population, you could have some very engaging gameplay. If the artists at Rockstar really branch out like they did in GTA: San Andreas, you could include Mt. Fuji, rural Shinto areas of gameplay, and even the military base at Okinawa. Plus, Japan in itself geographically most resembles a GTA "state". Just imagine plots involving North Korean kidnappers and side missions in pachinko parlours!

Yanks would have to get used to driving on the wrong side of the road, but who knows? Maybe even Godzilla or the Enola Gay could make an appearance in the end!

I wonder what they would call it though. GTA: Miyogi?

i played gta5 a bunch back in the day, on xbox 360, but never dabbled much in the online stuff.

now i have a ps4 and i want to dabble in the online stuff. my question: do i have to do anything in the single player game to unlock stuff in the online mode? and/or, is there some code (god i feel old, sorry) to unlock the full game so i don't have to do all the missions again? it was fun, but if i'm going to play the single player again i just want to have everything unlocked.

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 July 2017 20:24 (one year ago) Permalink

Single-player and online modes have very little to do with each other. They're about as separated as Vice City and Vice City Stories.

Very interested in what you find online using a PS4 though. Rockstar stopped updating that version awhile back.

pplains, Monday, 31 July 2017 20:26 (one year ago) Permalink

ruh roh, maybe i won't do it then. why'd they stop updating it? also, i just saw it's still $59.99! what a bunch of shit!

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 July 2017 20:28 (one year ago) Permalink

Because you're supposed to be playing it on a PS5 now?

No, wait. PS4 is the current one. PS3 (the one that I had) is the defunct version.

pplains, Monday, 31 July 2017 20:36 (one year ago) Permalink

hahaha

ok, that makes a little more sense. $60 is still kinda steep, though. can't i play it for free and watch 30 second taco bell advertisements between missions or something?

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 July 2017 20:39 (one year ago) Permalink

I think it's £25 in the current psn sale. Might not apply outside the UK.

yeah, still $59 in the USA. however, i just bought it because i am in the 94th percentile of Impulsivity

is there really no way to disable voice chat during missions and races? i see that you can disable it during freemode but i can't seem to find any information on muting it in other modes. the last several events have featured some little kid talking about his mommy incredibly loudly and constantly! i guess i could try to find my own headset and talk about my mommy too

Still a bit surprised no proper dlc was developed for gtaV, as in an extra single player story mode. Lots of areas of the map totally under used, or not used at all.

I'm still playing the more or less abandoned PS3 version of GTA Online. It's a little (more) like the wild west, with increasing incidence of annoying middle school modders and server crashes, but it's really no less populated than it's ever been afaict.

Oiled Launch (Old Lunch), Friday, 15 December 2017 15:12 (eleven months ago) Permalink

Uncanny glitches in the matrix keep occurring, too. Like all of the NPCs will just disappear for a while. Or you'll see a car off in the distance advance toward you and suddenly jerk back to the point in space where it was two seconds earlier, only to advance forward and jerk back again in an endless time loop. GTA reality is disintegrating at roughly the same rate as our own, it would seem.

yeah i suspect the plan was to do single-player dlc at some point but then gta online ended up being way more lucrative than rockstar expected and all their time and resources went into milking it as much as possible

On foot vs in car is a huge decision. I was cruising through Hollywood earlier and had to pull over and walk a bit.

I was ensconced in a train tunnel and, after successfully mowing down a wave of cops in hot pursuit, turned around to get back in my car only to be instantly mashed by the train whose approach I'd failed to notice in the midst of the carnage.

I've taken to staging elaborate suicides of late. Driving my motorcycle off a mountain peak and then leaping off the seat in midair is a favorite.

Hmm. Possibly a pursuit for the future. I did notice that you can kill yourself from the pause menu but that it costs $500.

I've been successfully landing backflips on my motorcycle lately, too. Feel like I'm reaching my peak right as the world is coming to an end.

I found a spot in the tunnels where I'm able to drop a flare that the good people at Merryweather Security can see from the air. I enjoy racing through the underground at top speed as some psycho on the surface tries to figure out where I am and then calling an airstrike once I've reached my secret spot. It's a fun trick, enjoyed by all.

Kinda wish severe weather events were a thing. I've never seen it rain this hard and persistently (thunder has been rocking my Dualshock for a good half hour). I'm hoping that I casually peer at the ocean at some point and notice a hundred foot wall of water coming to wipe out the city.

GTA certainly stokes my morbidity.

six months pass...

So I recently returned to San Andreas.

I had been playing "The Ballad of Gay Tony" for the first time. While I wasn't so crazy about the original Grant Theft Auto IV - with the closed bridges, the constant calls to go bowling, the small quarters of Liberty City but without the bustling population of the real New York - TBoGT was pretty fun. (I talked more about it here.)

I quit playing GTA-V years ago. Both me and my PS3 burned out. I had popped it in a few months ago on the PS3 we use for the Internet, and it wasn't the same. I gave it a second (third?) chance when I remembered that GTA-V had a similar gate glitch to GTA-IV's swing glitch. I had never encountered it because at the time, I had no idea what the hell people were talking about, in regard to that thing.

Played the first couple of missions - again - and realized, holy hell it was going to take forever to get back to where I was on the deceased PS3. I assumed the online portion would be nothing but tumbleweeds and hackers since everyone had moved on to PS4, but having seen the still-active online lobbies of IV, I dove in.

It's definitely a different scene now on the PS3's version of GTA-V Online, but I haven't seen any asteroids in the street yet. Lots of RP numbers in the middle triple digits, making me feel like a n00b ranked at just 137. Players for the most part are interested only in gunfights or setting things on fire - not much change from when I was on.

I noticed one of my characters hadn't robbed all the stores yet, so I made that my new mission. One player who had been a white flag in his apartment messaged me with "wanna rob stores together?" I felt like I was being watched!

Another player messaged "hey". I replied back with "hey". He asks "know any mods?" And then he left.

I was looking one night behind the police station in East L.S. for some cars to sell. It was a pretty active lobby, but no trolls so far. That is, from out of nowhere, my car exploded and the caption "DeadThreat69 killed Pplains" came up. But there was suddenly a huge list of captions on the right appearing at once: ""DeadThreat69 killed OtherPlayer1", "DeadThreat69 killed OtherPlayer2", "DeadThreat69 killed OtherPlayer3"... Like we all exploded at the same time.

Which was confirmed when I respawned and everyone simultaneously exploded again ten seconds later. Kinda had to beat the clock to check out of that session before I blew up a third time.

I left right before the heists became a thing. It's strange, that was apparently the last big update the PS3 had. So while everyone else is setting up nightclubs like they're Tony Prince, we're still out there casing the Fleeca Bank on PH1. Just to get Lester off my ass, I went through the motions of starting heist, but man, the servers are shit. I've watched that intro with the Chris Parnell guy talking about breaking some dude out of prison too many times. Most of the time, everyone leaves and I wind up walking out of some unfamiliar apartment building. Another time, I was designated the pilot so I went to the airport. By the time I was on the runway, we had failed the mission somehow.

During my first go, I joined in the middle of the prison heist. There's one scene where you have to go out to Blaine County to get an airplane. I drove all the way to the Sandy Shores airport before realizing, shit, the plane's at that little airport in Grapeseed, on the other side of the lake. Finally got there, jumped out of my Dubsta 6x6, and promptly got shot in the head, which failed the mission for everyone.

Few nights ago, did the Fleeca (where you only need two) with someone else. Servers were so bad. He was driving the car and smashing into everything. Except - we'd hit something and then suddenly be back on the road about 500 feet away. Like the server was buffering the time between the two of us. At one point, we had to steal one car from a garage. I jumped into it and took off back to Lester's. But when I got there, other dude was standing there under the bridge - next to the car I had just stolen.

Checked in to my old house in Paleto Bay. Drove the Dubsta in there, but the garage was full. Transferred one of the cars into storage, and *pop*, the Dubsta appeared in its place. Walked back outside and - there was my Dubsta on the street! Quickly did a 180 back into the garage and ... the first Dubsta was still there! Got excited and since the one in the street still had the tracker symbol on it, I drove that one back to L.S., thinking the dupe in the garage would be locked up.

It wasn't. Went by there yesterday and it was gone.

The kids are older now, but I still don't like playing this game in front of them, which isn't easy since I'm in the living room now. You don't notice how many NPCs just say WHAT THE FUCK? at random intervals until your eight-year-old is behind you on the couch playing Fortnite. I don't even like listening to West Coast Classics with them in the room. Started playing the SP and got to the mission where Franklin has to videotape the actress by the pool. Quit that one on the spot.

The thrill is gone, but it's still been fun. Doing mundane things like riding the entire length of the subway. Trying to remember how to get into wall breaches. The boy and I got to share a moment the other night after I hiked to the top of Mount Gordo and the scary ghost appeared before us at 23:00. ("Get closer!" he kept telling me.)

In fact, I've been having such a time that I've completely forgotten about finding that gate glitch. I'll have to do that soon and then decide whether the family needs a PS4 for RDR2.

GTA Online works much better on my PS4 than it did on 360 but it's still pretty buggy. The Doomsday Heist stuff was pretty cool, though. I haven't checked out the last two updates since then.
