GTAVBoxArt.jpgHave some new to share about Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online.  First on there will new stuff for story mode in 2014.  The website says, “we have big plans for substantial additions in 2014 continuing Michael, Franklin and Trevor’s action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas.”    All so for in 2014 in the online mode will be the long wanted Heists.

But wait there is more.  The better news is, this week for GTA Online the Deathmatch and Race Creators Beta will be out.  These creators will let you make, share, rate and play Deathmatchs, Team Deathmatchs, Races, GTA Races and Rally Races.  However for this to work you need to me a member of the Rockstar Games Social Club.  If  you are not singed up for that yet what are you waiting for its free and pretty cool.

GTAOnlineTurkeyShootSaleThe American Black Friday sales have taken over here in Canada but now it has taken over the video game world as well.  Of course there will be all kinds of great games on sale.  But here to talk about in game sale Grand Theft Auto V.   Should say it is for GTA Online they are have a 50% sale on the rifles along with the attachments and ammo.  There is more they are all so selling all black clothing and accessories for 50% off.  The sale starts November 28 and ends December 1, 2013.  Think this is a pretty cool idea.  I know I will be buying some stuff.  So if you have GTA V and play online it is a good time to get some good deals.

iFruit.jpgYes again, I am talking about Grand Theft Auto V.   This time because the iFruit app is now out for Android.  Not going to talk about what it does since I did that all ready.  You can read that post > here.  This is good news for Android users because of one cool thing in the app.   First thing you need to do if you haven’t all ready  is sign up for the RockStar Games Social Club.  Then tie your PSN ID or Xbox Gamer tag to it.  Then launch the app.  Sign in using you Social Club id.  One of the things you can do is customize the main car each character.  Here is the best part.  Not sure if sill works or not but worth a try.  If you go to Franklin’s car you can customize the hell out it and it will be all free.  I have the app on my iPod Touch and did this when it first came out.  So I think it would still work for Android users.

GTA Online

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2013 by getbent57

GTAOnlineHave some good news to share.  If you are a Grand Theft Auto V and have tried Grand Theft Auto Online this past week or so.  You know there was some problems as you know.  Turns out RockStar Games is going to give every one who has played 500,000 GTA$ (in game money).  We will getting this some time next week.  It will be give out in two parts the second $250, 000 will be given out at the end of the month.  For this to work for you need to:

  • You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
  • We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
  • Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.

Think this is pretty sweet.  I know I will be buying a nice apartment and some sweet cars.

Grand Theft Auto V

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2013 by getbent57

GTAVBoxArt.jpgOnce again want to talk about Grand Theft Auto V.  Have close to 11 hours in.  Mind you most of that time was just checking things and doing random stuff.  Have only done the first nine missions.   Here to talk about some interesting things I have found out and want to share.  They might help you out in your game.  One tip is to go to one of the Ammu-Nation’s with the shooting range.  If you get a bronze or higher in each of the shooting challenges.  There are three for each weapon you will end up getting 10% off everything you buy there.  You have to do that for each character.  Only have the first two guys.  Another thing is try out the golf and tennis.  They are both every well done and fun to play.

Another cool thing is to be part of the RockStar Games Social Club.  Have been a member since 2008.  The site keeps track your your stats for many of there games.  As well as may other things.  If you join up and have a copy of GTA V you will get, Exclusive haircuts, Assault SMG (with all the attachments), Annis Elegy RH8 car and a free garage for each character.  Another thing about the club is you can take pictures with your phone and they will out load to your profile.

*Side not the Social Club is and has been a bit of a hit and miss since the game came out.  But just keep trying.  That is what I did and managed to get the picture below uploaded.  Still haven’t gotten the iFruit app to work right.  Am sure the bugs will be worked out soon.

That will buff right out.

My Grand Theft Auto V Impressions

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 18, 2013 by getbent57

GTAVBoxArt.jpgMy Grand Theft Auto V impressions so far.  When I first put the game in and started to play it surprised me just how good every thing looked.  The world is huge and there is know load times.  That is very impressive.  Just think back to when GTA 3 game out and you have to load each section of the city.  Going to give a break down of what I did and seen that I thought was cool that I did in the 2 and half hours I played (so far).

Miner spoiler.  The first mission takes place in the winter with lots of snow.  So I had to see how real the snow was.  It was very real.  You sink into and your movement is slowed down.

The world is huge and beautiful.  It pulls you right in.  There is so much detail in every square inch.  And I only seen one tiny part of it.

The cars looks awesome.  Again lots of detail.  You can even turn you headlights off and on at will.

You can climb ladders.

The bmx bike is fun.  Can even take it into the half pipe.  I land on my head.

If you pull up behind a cop car at a red light.  Put on the hand break and then rev you engine they get pissed and come after you.

You can tow away cars in side missions.  You have to lower you boom and back up in just the right way.  Very cool

You can play fetch with your dog.

Can go to the movie theatres.  Haven’t tied that yet.

This is just a very tiny part of this game.  So far I am having a blast.  Think this is the best game every made.  Can’t wait to go back in  to see what fun crazy thing will happen next.

Grand Theft Auto V

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2013 by getbent57

GTAVBoxArt.jpgToday is the day  got my hands on a copy Grand Theft Auto V.  Feels like have have been waiting for years for this day to come.  The GTA series is my all time favourite game series.  So hyped up to start playing this game its all most over welling.  Went over to Wal-Mart on my morning break.  There was not one less around looking for a copy so I was in and out.  They had two boxes behind the counter.  One for each system.  Ask if they had any special editions, but no. So I just got the plain one.   All the rest of my shift I was thinking, can’t wait to get home and play.  Had my supper all ready to heat up and eat.  So I would waste too much time with that.

Have the game in.  Typing this while the game installs.  Will be back after some time with an update.

[Update].  Holy shit this game is pure awesome.
