GTA Vice City – Crash, Smash & Dash

GTAViceCity.jpgAm revisiting an old video I made back in the early 2000’s.  If you every stopped by this blog you will know I am a big GTA fan.  Back in 2002 when Vice City was out.  Was playing it non-stop.  At this time was trying my hand at video editing.  Had a Windows 98SE with 64MB of ram and a 20GB hard drive.  My PS2 was hooked to the VCR and that was attracted to the TV.  So would record footage every now again.  Around that time got myself a Dazzle video capture box thing.  This let you plug in RCA cables to the box and then into the computer though USB.  At the time it was mind-blowing and the footage looked great.  Well not so much 15 years later.  You can see the video > here or below.  It is the most popular video I have.  With over 87,000 views.  Not sure if I still have the original footage.  Going to check and see.  May be I can make a new 15 years later version.

Changes to your GTA$ Benefit

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 14, 2021 by getbent57

There is a big change coming to Grand Theft Auto Online.   Received an email the other day from Sony saying there is a change coming to how you get your free monthly GTA money.  For awhile now if you play at lest once a month they will give you a million GTA$ until the PS5 version of GTA Online is out.  All you had to do was log into the game a play for a bit.  Starting April 1, 2021 that will change.  This is what the email said,

“ From April 1, 2021 forward you will need to claim your monthly GTA$1,000,000 benefit from the Playstation™Store. At the start of each month a new GTA$1,000,000 product will be available on the PS Store, like other similar PS Plus pack benefits. You must be a Playstation®Plus subscriber to claim this product each month and the GTA$ will be deposited into your in-game account upon store redemption.

The month of March 2021 will be the last month in which your monthly GTA$ benefit will be automatically deposited into your in-game account within 72 hours of your first play session. As of April 1, 2021, these automatic GTA$ in-game deposits will be discontinued.

The amount of the GTA$ benefit is not changing. The offer is still limited to GTA$1,000,000 per person per month and this offer will still end when Grand Theft Auto V launches on Playstation®5 in the second half of 2021. A specific release date of GTAV on PS5™ has not yet been announced.”

GTA Online: The Cayo Perico Heist Frustration

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 8, 2021 by getbent57

A few posts back talked about the Cayo Perico Heist in Grand Theft Auto Online.  Had all the setup missions done and was waiting to play the heist part with my brother. Well we gave it a try New Years eve.  For may years now we have been playing the game on that day.  In that last post all so talked about watching some how-to’s on YouTube.  It seemed simple enough to play though it in stealth.  We mess up the first time.  So decided to keep going and see if we would get the the end.  That didn’t work .  So tired two more quick restarts.  Ended up getting killed very quickly.  After that we started the whole mission again.  And again failed then one more time failed.  After that we stopped thinking we will try again another time.

Well the next try it again by myself and failed let again two times.  Got so frustrated shut the game off.  Might wait a day or two before trying one last time.  Do like the idea of this heist.  But for some reason find it too easy to mess-up and once you do there is now way to fight the way though it.

Tried out more of the Cayo Perico Heist in Grand Theft Auto Online.  Left off were you scout out the island.  When I logged back in started to do some of the prep missions.  There are a bunch you can do.  The basically have you go some were on the map and get an item.  The few I did were pretty fun even if I died a few times.  Found a good tutorial, which you can see > here, showing off the best way to go about playing the heist.  Watched it a few times just to make sure I could pull it off.  As I am typing this haven’t finished the it yet.  Will be back with another update.

GTA Online: The Cayo Perico Heist

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2020 by getbent57

Tried out part of the Cayo Perico Heist in Grand Theft Auto Online.   It is the new add on/DLC that can be played single player, which is nice.  First you need to go to the new nightclub that is under the casino.  The talk to a guy who tells you to buy a submarine to start this new heist.  This acts as the base of operations.  Next there is more story stuff as you head the the new location, which is an island.  This is were you will be doing the heist.  Once the story stuff is over you need to scout the island to find the items you were sent to get.  All so along the way you will mark other items you can take.  When you are done that.  You head back the the main game to start off the next part of the mission.  This is were I stopped.  Planning to play with my brother in the coming days.  So will wait to finish that with him.

GTA_Online_The_Cayo_Perico_HeistIt has been a long time since there as been a big DLC for Grand Theft Auto Online.  I was guessing they would be holding off until there next gen version of the game.  Well I was wrong.  Last week they announced The Cayo Perico Heist.  This is a pretty big deal because it is adding a new location to the game.  Another big change is this heist is it can be played solo.  All the other you needed four people.  There is not much more to go on just let.  There is the article linked above and a teaser trailer.  Which you can see > here or below.  This update is set to be out December 15, 2020.

Grand Theft Auto Online Summer Update

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2020 by getbent57

There is now a summer update for GTA Online.  They are calling it Los Santos Summer Special.  They are adding new co-op work though the Yacht’s.  All so new business battles and adversary modes.  There will be more vehicles along with open wheel ones.  As with the open wheel cars there will be a open wheel race creator.  This stuff all sounds fine.  But I was hoping for something cooler.  They gloss over one feature they mention at the bottom of the post.  You can know own eight properties. We will get to see how good everything is on August 11, 2020.  You can read the official blog post > here.
