So what's the deal with insurance? My brother just got insurance for his car and the second he came out of Los Santos Customs, someone was waiting for him and crashed his car like mad. So that costs to repair. I was going to buy microtransactions for money but if people just troll like this all the time, it'd seem a waste of my money when people will be totalling my car all the time, forcing me to pay money to fix it.

It'll be buggy at first but Insurance is to insure that you can get your customized car back should it be stolen/crashed but for a small fee.

Haha, true. I see you over on the Battlefield 4 forums, too, so which are you anticipating more today, the BF4 beta or the Online for this (if it even allows)?

Include me to the list of people who can't get online. I knew I wouldn't get online when my stock portfolio reported a 100% wipe out.

I don't even see the BF4 beta. I heard of the 'switch to UK' workaround, but it either doesn't work now, or doesn't work for some, and I don't want to risk not getting to play it at all by doing so. So right now, I've gotten to experience neither of these things I so eagerly anticipated these past few weeks. Are the graphics just bad on BF4?

Yeah... and my friend is over there playing online. He's in a deathmatch just having a ball.

Well he's not really having that much fun because he's scared his character will get corrupt or something, but damn, at least he's playing.

Lucky him. I don't understand the whole character/save corruption thing. Wouldn't expect something like that from Rockstar.

And he seems oblivious to the fact that I'm miserably trying to join constantly and I'm just getting nowhere. I can't even load the first online screen anymore to create a character. All I'm hearing is him describing how much fun he's having.

It's a horrible feeling. I think we're all better off leaving this till tomorrow or so..but we all know that's not possible. I'm staring at a blurred screen of the city while listening to some stupid Mexican track with the fucking" Waiting for other players" load message.

It seems like it's worth it to keep trying because I've now for the second time gotten off the plane and I'm about to hopefully actually start the race.

Only problem is my character has no biceps, a weird haircut, and I'm a man, but Lamar is treating me like a woman.

Here's a picture.

^ Lol.

I'm messing about with the Lifestyle for my character. I'm guessing these are things our character is capable of doing until we have to sleep or something?

So laggy and full of idiots. You have to go rob a store for some cash, and some guy joins me, and when we get there, the clerk is glitched. As soon as the clerk is unglitched, the guy blasts him, giving us a bigger wanted level and we have to get the cash ourselves. I hate relying on others.

I just came here to bitch about the soundtrack for the radio stations. There is NO interesting music on them. What happened to the great soundtracks of all the other modern GTAs?!

Really not too bad. The Nuclear Waste took just over an hour and a half, and I actually really enjoyed exploring under the sea.

Let me be clear, these are far from the worst collectibles in a game, they're not even close. I used the cab method but even that isn't without it's annoyances. The cabby always wants to take off on you, even if you whistle at him to stay, which doesn't always want to work. And going in and out of the phone to call cabs gets tedious. I did a mix of cab fast travel and using a helicopter. I'd say go with the helicopter all the way if landing it everywhere wasn't going to be an issue. At some point you're going to wreck that thing somehow unless you're amazing. I think the chooper is a little better for the spaceship parts and the cab is great for the letters, the letters went much faster for me for some reason. The majority of them are located on flat ground in comparison to the spaceship parts.

Yeah, I can't do anything in this without getting killed. You have to pay money to go into Passive mode, and everyone seems to just want to kill others, not do jobs properly or shop or anything.

Rockstar probably has the nastiest community in all of online gaming. GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption were the same way. It became avoidable in Read Dead Redemption following patches but today is probably the first day you could jump on GTA IV and avoid some assholes.

I go to the barber shop to get a haircut, and some asshat manages to kill me. I respawn, track him down, and he's in the middle of a robbery. I go to kill him to see if I can get the achievement and get my money back, and I can't pull the trigger on him at all. So he's in the store somehow, shooting me, yet I can't shoot him, then another player comes up and kills me.

I'm done with it for now. The Online is beyond annoying, buggy, and laggy. I'll give it a few days or something and just try to boost as many achievements as I can. This is ridiculous.
