RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 08/14/14
Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

how much beta testing and how big of group sizing were they using? Most MMOs drop tons of time and resources into this. On a multifront MP/SP title like this, resource splitting is always an issue. So I wonder what all they did.

What they should have done was given Collector's Edition suckers, I mean, purchasers early "beta" access to GTA Online, but that would have still driven headlines like "GTA V Sucks Because Online Doesn't Work" on launch day which is exactly what they didn't want.

Maybe no matter what they did it was going to have problems right out the gate.

Slow on the uptake? They aknowledged before launch that there would be issues and then they fixed them within two weeks and gave a little thank you gift to the fans.

Beta testing really is a two edged sword.

I got a really expensive one we can all chill in. Still, just finished doing a survival mission for a nice 20g's. Gonna take a break, and I'll probably be playing more later.

Survival missions are the way to go.

Here's what I'm anticipating: I'll be on early and then much later tomorrow. I'm playing Xbox only. Sunday I'll be on PS3.

There are so many things about GTA Online that are confusing to me. I thought free roam was supposed to be semi-harmless fun. Getting in a fun shootout for a few minutes isn't supposed to cost me half of my savings. I thought money in the bank couldn't be stolen by other players...

This is probably my biggest complaint about Online. While I am loving it, I just avoid free-roam altogether because if I do a mission that gets me 5 grand and then I die twice in free-roam, welp that money is gone. Time to do 20 more minutes of missions.

While you do get a lot more big money jobs as you play more, even then I risk losing a lot of money because some idiot camped my apartment.

You should lose 500 max, definitely not $2000 or however much it is.

used mentioned we would receive a "thank you for dealing with sh*t." So, we are and I think it'll help us out. They're giving your character $500,000. The downside is it'll be split into two different deposits of $250,000 and nor have they confirmed the dates.

I'm about to go to sleep. Listen to that voice message I left and keep repeating it.
I could have played more, but I gotta work. Also, couldn't get to play with Icepick and spartan317 that much, because my female character wasn't able join session, had to complete the remaining tutorial. Which is complete bullsh*t. Needless to say, I had to do that tutorial again.

Here's the little bit I livestreamed.

Goddamn, after playing for a while, today was the day my internet decided it couldn't hold a connection.

Sorry Urban. I blew the getaway. Don't blame me.

Finally finished the campaign. Really liked how they tied off a lot of the different story lines.
