I'm really quite pissed off at this broken online mode. If NASA worked for 5 years to create something, launched it, and the thing didn't fucking work, people would lose their jobs.

They knew what they were releasing, I'm sure they knew how big of a hit it was going to be, and they had 5 years to toy with it, for fuck's sake. I don't appreciate being Rockstar's free beta tester. This is something that should have been addressed before releasing a largely broken product.

Rockstar can make one hell of a single player experience, but boy, do they have a lot to learn about online gaming. I expect better from a company that just made 1 billion over 3 days of sales. There are simply no excuses.

Just have someone join your private mode, have them call and put a bounty on your head, and voila. Doesn't get much easier than that.

No shit? My point I was trying to make is, when a company like NASA launches something and it goes pear-shaped, people get fired. Rockstar are barely responding to our concerns.

If I wanted to pay $60 (not to mention the extra money I shelled out to renew my Xbox Live subscription for the sole reason of playing this game online) for Rockstar to bust a load on my face and then sit with their thumbs up their arses, I would have.

When I buy a game, I expect it to work. Plain and simple. They're taking the piss. I'm not even going to touch on the multitude of issues I experienced in the single-player.. now, I understand glitches and hiccups in the first few days of an online launch, but the first tutorial mission is literally broken for a large percentage of players. THE FIRST MISSION! Was this shit even beta tested before it was launched? Ridiculous.

Battlefield 4's beta just launched, with things running smoothly for up to 64 players, with incredible graphics, on launch day. I have no sympathy for a company that releases a broken product and then shrugs their shoulders, saying "We're sorry, we're working on it". I just feel like a fool for paying them, at this point.

This is a throwback to Max Payne 3's buggy and almost-broken multiplayer that never got fixed. They're laughing all the way to the bank, and the people that keep defending them are part of the problem. Collectively, as gamers, we need to let companies like Rockstar know that we will not tolerate this shit!

I thought this online was working perfectly until it sort of crashed on me and when I restarted it I lost $10000. It's totally playable for me now but Imma wait a little bit longer. I don't like my money being fucked with -___-

Don't you dare even jinx it!!!

I hope that's just like completing all the sports and races or something. For 20, I imagine it can't be that complicated!

I looked in the 'Unlocks' section Online for the Stats, and there are so...many...things...to do. They all have a 'Yes' or 'No' next to them, and some of them haven't even counted for things I've definitely done. One of them involves modding a car through the real life iFruit app and then seeing the car in game. I won't be getting the achievement.

That's impossible. A company wouldn't do that!

I wouldn't be surprised. With a 'yes/no' option for everything else (cinemas, tennis, even stealing the huge airplane, filling it with friends, and then flying it counts), I can only assume that counts, too. I'll take a big pass on it. I don't even see me getting to rank 50.

Also, just a heads up, 'Gang Activities' unlock at rank 18. It appears you have to be at least rank 20 to unlock all the game modes required for winning all competitive MP modes, but that bit may be wrong.

Yeah, I've realized that. Not too happy about it. It's a shame really, but what else can you expect when it comes to R* and online gaming? I should have known the online was gonna be shite from the get go. It's Rockstar, after all.

At least I can look at it with a sense of humor (somewhat). a lot of my friends are less understanding, and R* have lost customers in them.

Shit, maybe they plan to release the app for all smart phones, but even still...that'd fuck over people who don't own them. Hopefully we find out what's needed for that. This Online stuff is TOO CONFUSING.

But I completed the Stunt Jumps so yay Now time to see if the Online will fucking work.

R*, are you drinking your own Kool-Aid?

Just because you gave every NPC in the game a fucking smart phone doesn't mean everyone in real life actually has or wants one.

Oh, well, I guess I won't be getting that achievement either...

Actually, I won't get any of them unless and until it finally lets me pass through Blurry City.

Part of me thinks this might've been part of the plan. Don't bother trying to smooth out the launch with additional servers and such, just let some people get so fed up that they fuck right off.

Traffic will stabilize in no time.

I adored Red Dead Multiplayer until they put it to pasture and allowed the cheats to run the show with impunity.

Smartphones suck the life right out of you. I'm goddamn ashamed for even owning one.

I really don't see me sinking much time into this Online. Even when you get in, the missions become monotonous real quick, it takes way too long to earn money or even rank up, and it's all just boring in the end. I think I'll hit rank 25, get a few other achievements that I can get, and stop. It's even bullshit that for 'Mugger,' you have to hit rank 50. If you ranked up a lot faster in this game, it wouldn't be a problem.

I tried to get online for the first time today after completing the campaign and I'm stuck on a "Launching session" screen spinning at the bottom right of my screen. I rebooted and I still get stuck on the same screen. As I type this I've been watching the spinning for about 10 minutes now. So yeah, this is my little complaint.

Being a tennis player, I thought tennis in GTA V was the best side game ever.

I was wrong.

In the online portion, tennis is so fucked up I'm losing to people I KNOW don't actually play the sport or aren't good at it. Apparently there is still lag in a simple game with 2 players and one ball, and it totally fucks up your play as to make you stand there, helpless, as the ball easily goes by you and you look like a dumbass - lag says the ball will still go in realtime but won't actually show where it's fucking going (not just the circle where it lands but its actual trajectory too) therefore I miss an easy shot because I couldn't see the ball. I'd be better off running around like a loon mashing the X button.

Now that the fucking latency issue is out of my system, let's get to the actual gameplay. Usually the response is pretty tight and I get some nice shots on par with professional players in real life. But sometimes my character will literally just stand there and watch as the ball goes by a foot from his head. The fuck?! Also, apparently I'm not allowed to "swing" as the ball is on the ground or my character will also stand there like a fucking retard who doesn't know the sport when I could easily pick it up off the ground in real life. Fuck Rockstar and their lousy attempt at tennis!!

*phew* However I do believe the rest of the online is beautiful and so much better than IV's and RDR's combined.

Based off of your sig, I look forward to seeing you get 1,000 in V. I won't be getting anywhere near it.

Other than getting rank 100, the online isn't that bad. Especially since you can boost the wins and such in an invite-only room.
