      I rarely get killed in free roam mode.

      First, I don't spend much time there and second, I just watch the map. If someone is near me, I leave. If they follow, they get shot. There isn't much money to be made in free roam anyhow, so there isn't a lot of reason to stay there.
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      My original GTA-V online character.. I deleted him.
      On the initial race, everybody else looked just me.
      I guess that's what I get for trying to make the most boring white guy possible.

      My new character's first car:

      Nice Brealistic! When I was looking for a first car to steal, the game spawned a relentless amount of Dinka Blistas. Like it was saying "This is what you get." ... it's a decent car. Handles great but not terribly fast. Should be online tonight somewhere between 8-10 pm pacific

      There are some unlimited money glitches out there. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I don't particularly care, but if Rockstar ever had any plans for some sort of online economy, they are throwing it all out of whack.

      On the other hand, those players won't have any reason to purchase GTA$ from Rockstar, so the longer they leave the glitches out there, the more they hurt their bottom line on microtransactions.
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      It's slow.. handles poorly... but is a tank.

      I thought it would be a fun car to start with since losing the cops is way too easy for me in the normal game... even when missing a tire.

      And I am not sure how this car works online.
      Maybe it is available when custom cars are on in races?

      ecapox44 and Krautfed - that was fun.
      If I hadn't been a bottle of vino before the games... I might have fared better.
      Still.. BF3 made me relish any moving helicopter hit by an RPG.
      But I have a problem with shooters.. I play way too aggressively for my ability.
      I get bored sitting in cover, and well... die.

      But I have to say.. the multiplayer gun game in this game in very good.
      They really stepped it up over past gun controls and multiplayer.

      Who else is PS3 on here?

      I think I have the Sandy Shores survival mission down now. I basically carried the game for my two team mates.

      I came across two guys who were farming a 1 lap race in the Hood... I joined in for a few races, always betting on the guy with the fastest custom "GTR" type car, as he was always winning. Easy money, right there... And no risk of dying, or having to buy bucket loads of ammo.

      Played a few hours last night. Spent most of the time trying to find teammates while doing quick missions. Got a chance to play a few survival matches even though I'm not level 15. I really enjoy those. Getting a chance to use weapons I haven't unlocked is nice. Starting to get a better feel for the controls playing those missions. There is one survival map at the industrial quarry is Damn hard to find a safe place. I'm hoping to get a few more chances tonight in survival.

      I came across a friendly noncrew member. We rob a couple stores. Then on our third I try to shoot the bottles behind the cashier and end up hitting him with the butt of my shotgun, killing him. I finished the job and got out. After ditching the stars I wanted to give him all the loot from the job. I finish going through the menu and sending the loot, he found me and shot me. Fair enough. I felt like a jerk.

      I felt bad for dropping a nade on that pile of cars first game I came across you in. Didn't think you'd run back over that way

      I'm always down for survival if anyone is online and wants to play.
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      Is that what happened!? I thought it was a damaged car that exploded in the pile. I can barely read the text of the popup. I miss a lot of that info on who's inviting or who killed who. I'll be on a bit later today/tonight. Will be needing a level 15+ to host/invite some survival. Hope to get a few crew in the same lobby.

      I played way too much yesterday, but this might be the most fun game I've ever played. The weird semi-instancing is a neat approach to it, where you have your own game world (with your possessions) that you play in and other people also have theirs but your sharing the same server, and you can hop between different servers seamlessly. Pretty crazy, and it makes me we wonder how they handle it on the back end.

      It seems like somebody had some extra money to throw around in one I was playing in, as people were randomly getting bounties put on their heads and I got one a few times. I think the game might do that to you too if you steal the wrong vehicle.

      The parachute missions are kinda cool, the flying races are fun. The missions are great (very tough though). I'm kinda lukewarm on death match though.

      There's just an incredible amount of content.

      I don't know much about this stuff but it seems like each free roam "session" is being hosted to some extent on one of the players consoles...

      I know I was on on game in free roam and heard a guy say he was leaving and quit and is soon as he quit we all got booted from the game with a message that said something like "Host has quit, cannot migrate to new host" or something.

      G/F has an early flight tomorrow, we'll be out before 6 am so we just decided to pull an all nighter. I'll be able to play a good bit tonight - Skip let's get up some Survival going again. Any Level 15+ crew want to help us level up this fine evening?

      Had a bunch of connectivity issues last night similar to how the game handled before, pre-1.03 update. All my settings were double-checked correct and I reset the router, blah blah blah. No dice.

      Anyone else having issues sending money to people? I ran into escanor94 and wanted to give him some cash from a couple jobs, but the option won't work. Lots of talk online about it.

      Anyhow, Futo shenanigans ensued



      We also went flying.....



      Which didn't end well for him....

      Where do you get the planes?

      And how are you people stealing the jets at the army base?! The gates don't open up for me at all...

      I haven't tried to steal a jet online, but I assume it's the same as offline. I did a youtube video about it.

      As for the planes.... they're at the airport
