I look into upgrading my turbo - you can't have to win x number of races of this type! Seems a roundabout.
Certainly does seem counterproductive to make you win a certain amount of races against boosted cars before you can even use boost yourself.

I wish they didn't do those automatic bounties as soon as I join online. Some days I don't even get a chance to turn on the Passive mode. Boo man!

Ah, more "realistic" problems surfacing that are kind of annoying. I had when I go about doing a random encounter or something, flip off a cliff in my vehicle and the first time the car hits the road it blows up. It's "Dr. No" all over again with the three blind mice in that hearse!

Not all vehicles do that mind you but some that I've encountered, as soon as an impact hits the engine it explodes...rather irritating. Especially when all you're trying to do is avoid those f'n cops!

I feel you, but the only time a vehicle has exploded on me while falling is nose first. Every other angle merely damages it - if you nosedive the engine into the ground, it's more liable to explode.

Or from ridiculously high heights while spinning at about 600 degrees a second. That's reason enough for exploding.

Lol I'm pretty good at GTA Driving always have been since like Driver the game and classic racing games like Nascar. I didn't run into any aggressive Drivers like in IV. I remember people derby racing even going the wrong way hitting me head on costing me first place I'd get so mad I'd quit. IV's online was pretty bad, V's is everything I wanted iv's to be.

BOOOO! It would seem the last patch made racing not even worth doing now. It's one big joke what they give you now. I mean how thw hell are you supposed to even get an Adder or a tank or other $$$$$$$$$ vehicles let alone 250k to fully upgrade them. It took me 8 hours or racing just to get my Entity and that's actually racing and not boosting. now it looks like you might need at least 100 racing wins to get to a million dollars.

well at least I got all my cars fully upgraded before that patch.

My guess is they want you to buy cash cards.................

I wish there was a way to automatically turn off or disable the radio. It's really irritating now. Or if they really won't add an option to do that, at least something like in Saints Row where you can add your own music from your own library playlist or some sort.

GTA V should've just reverted back to just been an offline game and no tacked on multiplayer that sucks worse than BioShock 2's tacked on Multiplayer.

first time ive been on since the latest update and well, how can i sum this up. the online black screened on me 3 times in 20 mins
winning a race netted me a cool $2000 as opposed to the previous $13000
RP is terribly low
The 'New' (even though they were on the disc) are shite
And so are the weapons.

Can't believe how bad the payouts are now. Thankfully I don't have anything left to unlock. I feel sorry for anyone just starting out online now that's for sure.

I was about to give online another shot, but now I'm not sure if it's worth it. How will I ever get a competitive edge over someone who's spent a month on the high-payout system?

I remember going through the options trying to figure this out but apparently I couldn't find a way to turn it off permanently. I agree it is annoying.

Well my first death was complete fucking bullshit.

Here I am playing as Micheal and I'm driving past some construction site. Next thing I know I see a random event so I stop to do it. There's this idiot parked right under some pipes that fall on his truck. I go to move them and don't have a problem. However, literally as soon as he got out the fucking gas lit on fire and it exploded instantly, killing me.

This is one thing I have always hated about GTA games. They make you drive the slowest shit ever and when you need to GTFO, you can't even run away in time either. They just want you to die.

Lost $390 and the random event saving for fucking nothing.

I think I'm done playing this for the night.

I agree! I mean tacked on multiplayer? You can tell that Rockstar put a lot of effort into the multiplayer.

One thing that I am finding a hard time getting used to is the driving. I think it's much more sensitive? I want to say and I am always skidding all over the place.
It's probably something that I am going to have to get used to.

The driving is much much different than GTA IV, so give it a few hours and it will feel more comfortable I had a similar problem getting used to it right out of the box.

That third Triathlon was horrible!

Button mashing A for 30 minutes straight takes a toll on your thumb

I finished 1st easily though

I am so fucking pissed. I have completed 97.56% of the game so far. I have done all offroad races, all motorcrosses, did 2 street races. I only need 3 races, some golf and darts, and I've done all the pastimes and hobbies. But the 3rd race does not unlock. Hell, it even looks like Franklin doesn't get ANY texts? I even never had the call from Raul from the Cab depot!
I've 'saved' countless times and waited for Hao's text, but it just doesn't show at all!
I mean, Rockstar: WTF?! And no. I am NOT gonna start a new game, get every scrap, every strangers and freaks, every space item, every single pastime and hobby AGAIN!
I am 67 hours in the game, this is not cool!

Edit: After saving about 50 times, and switching to Trevor for a game of golf (which sucks because I HATE golf) I got the text message after all......

Yes. Especially when I only had 45 minutes before going to work. I was like 'when is it god damn over?!' when all the other triathlons are only like, 5 to 10 minutes or less....
