  1. A bit of a bump, w/ SR4 & GTA5 it seems timely. A couple things to start off 1): Johnny Gat = Epic, Trevor would be his towel boy. 2):Saints (2) has the septic avenger, the closest GTA gets is a fire truck. A fire truck isn't bad, but it's not a septic truck. 3): Saints 2, 3, & 4 have co-op integrated into the main storyline, GTA still has separate co-op play. 4): Saints doesn't have 1 thing GTA has the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine. They're better off w/out it. Saints 2 would of been tho one to steal R*'s crown but was just unstable, I've lost count of how many times my X360 froze up, almost never happened in GTA except for GTA online (R* will probably get that sorted eventually). I've heard nightmare stories about PC SR2 that give the first week of GTA online a run. The DLC tends to be skimpy in Saints. On the GTA side you have good game theory, the missions are put together well & switching between between characters on the fly is a good touch. As for DLC I am looking forward to seeing what R* comes up w/. Granted the Beach Bum pack was a little lacking but the price was definitely right. So, Homie, you jackin' The BMW or the Benz?
  2. Sounds like a good time to catch up on Republican Space Rangers. This also happens in invite only/solo mode so it a little extra cash from boosted cars you sell, just outlive the bounty. I think R* missed one when they didn't generate AI bounty hunters to come after you in private sessions. Who knows what nice stuff they'd bring me, Merriweather mercs brought me a sweet Jeep.
  3. In my case, I was open w/ my kids about firearms. They would get curious -"What's that ?" Instead of reacting like a lot of people(BAD, BAD, STAY AWAY!!!!) I took a minute to show them what it was & teach them basic rules, thereby removing any taboo, & made sure they knew any time they got curious all they had to do was ask I would show them again. As a result, by the time my oldest was 7 she could clear & secure any firearm I owned. I knew if my kid found one laying around, the worst thing she would do would unload it. If no one was around to get an adult she would take the ammo & find an adult. I might not be Ward Cleever (just google it) but I KNEW my kids would never be an accidental shooting statistic.
  4. Same thing last night, a green circle just south of the Sandy Shores airstrip & nothing for over an hour. Got tired of waiting, took a few missions & went private. No crates since Beach Bum which tells me R* changed something as before that I saw crates about once an hour (real time) even in solo mode.
  5. Assisted w/ a couple last night, flew the Buzzard while my buddy took the shots. I'm a bad person, I enjoyed myself.
  6. 1: Where do you get your aircraft? My pilot skill is maxed & the crosshiar still bobs & weaves all over because it's locked dead ahead & moves w/ the aircraft. CJ had a lot better attack heli Insert cussing here. 2: If you're after $$, Martin & Lester pay better than the others. Martin's mission "Defender" pays $11500 to fly a Buzzard & protect one of his contacts. If you're good in a heli it's easy cash. Sucks about your ride, I have about $200K wrapped up in my "free" Eligy so I know what you mean. Last night I joined a buddy & stumbled into a public cesspool made the mistake of leaving my Merryweather Mesa at the Sandy Shores airstrip when I grabbed the Buzzard. Someone (let's call him Dick) apparently didn't appreciate my setting vehicle access to "no one" & blew it up. Thanks Dick. You probably won't make that mistake again but for those who are yet, get insurance & bulletproof tires for any car you plan to keep. My Stainer (90's Crown Vic) has been blown up 6 times, sunk twice, caught fire once & tangled w/ 4 freight trains (never totaled by trains, drove away each time). Deductible is $125. Dick paid the $325 on the Mesa (only time it's been totaled).
  7. So the (rhetorical) question is how go you get ambulance chaser lawyers, generic air-talent news hacks & opportunistic politicians like.....well pretty much all of 'em out of the way so we can get somewhere on this. At least R*'s biggest fan Jack Thompson finally got disbarred so there's at least a chance.
  8. Speaking of visible reticles ( okay, spell check just weird), it would be nice to have one in your car. Perfect example would be one of Martin's missions where you have to get a target before they get to the police. my shot always goes right next to their head & off they go plowing through everything while I just try to get turned around to give chase. But that's okay, every ped in the game panics & responds by running AT the (suppressed) gungire. I thought suppressors were supposed keep gunshots from being noticed immediately. So WTF did I spend $10k for? Even Vivindi got those 3 things right: you knew where your shot was going, suppressors did something useful & peds ran AWAY from gunfire. "So Honey, what are you going to do today?" "Oh I think I'll get in the minivan & drive AT a car load of madcappers shooting Uzis!" Screw Martin's evidence or photos, the Hello Kitty grenade launcher comes comes out now. PS I still play so if anyone's looking for someone to run w/ send me a message on XBL.
  9. Looks like it comes apart easier than a 360 (a little TOO familiar there) but I'll still wait to get one until I know more about their quality/reliability. Just a headsup, what the video didn't show is the case (like most modern consumer products) has paint marks or stickers to tell if it's opened, so don't go get a new one & pop it open, you'll void the warranty. We don't even know if the 1 works. Anybody remember the old topic "How to kill your Xbox 360" (or similar)?
  10. The news media hasn't helped any by throwing around terms like "assault rifle" & "semi-automatic". 200 years ago an "assault rifle" was 5 feet long & you loaded it w/ a broomstick. If you were really good you get off 3 shots in a minute. In the meantime that same news media do things like publicizing the George Zimmerman case (surprised that topic didn't get more of a response) Similar cases at the time were ignored because they just weren't interesting enough. Sensationalist puds would go wall to wall w/ a cat in a tree if they thought it would get ratings. Another term is "assault weapon" which technically is any weapon used to assault someone. The average 5th grader leaves for school everyday carrying a pack full of things that could be used as such. Spartan is right in the comparisons w/ stabbings, drowning & drunk driving. Again, the answer is idiot control.
  11. Money's tight ATM so I'm using the laptop that's also my phone server, barely runs & randomly shuts down. Eventually I'll get it sorted & start posting pics again, just not real soon.
  12. Glad you like the hardware & yes, the Dragonov is real (Bulgarian) & surprisingly easy on the bad shoulder. Been thinking about picking up something in .243 & .270 myself, they're among the few calibers still readily available. As for .45, I can still reload. I take my buddy & his kids shooting so the kids can chase down the brass. Standard warning here: If you reload get a good manual, Hornady, Lee, etc & follow it to the letter. Failure to do so may result in learning to rat w/ sticks tied to stumps.
  13. Most of the people I usually run w/ have already quit playing, going back to Borderlands (new DLC), Forza or COD. I'll hit GTAO in a few & see what got nerfed today.
  14. Ballas shooting you through solid wall? Cops see you through 40 feet of Earth & concrete? Idiot Ron keeps calling you to pick up crates that never drop? The car you spent $$$ buying armor for won't protect you from a bullet? Here's a place for it. Maybe if there's enough response it'll get back to R* & get fixed. In the mean time, we can keep the other threads more constructive. Glitches, collision errors or any other annoyances in the game itself are fair game. I'll start. When did this become "Grand Go To The Internet And Buy An Auto"? I'm looking at the case & it says "Grand THEFT Auto", implying you take cars as opposed to buying them. A lot of the cars are "TOO HOT TO MODIFY".... WTF?! Seriously? That never stopped Claude, Tommy, CJ, Tony, Vick, Niko, Johnny or Luis. On top of that almost everything in the game is insanely overpriced. Even in the current market 20 rounds of Olympic ammo for the sniper rifles cost closer to $40 than $145 (I'm a gun nut, I tend to keep up on these things) & a basic pistol w/ silencer is just over $20K. For perspective, I can go 6 blocks from my house to a class III dealer & pick up a full auto MP5 w/ suppressor & upgraded parts for the same, legal w/ paperwork. It seems like someone at R* keeps cutting mission payouts so by time I finish I spend as much on ammo as the mission pays. I can't even pick up the ammo dropped by killed enemies. I'm calling weapons grade BS on that one, even EA let me pick up ordinance Mercenaries 2. On top of limiting what cars you can sell, there's the limit of selling one car a day (in game) & now I can't even capture an enemy gang vehicle to offset the overpriced ammo - YOU CAN'T PUT THAT VEHICLE IN YOUR GARAGE. To borrow from Johnny Gat (Saints) Why the f*** not?! I can still grab random vehicles off the street on mission but now that I've said something I'm sure someone will get right on that. Next.
  15. BUMP ALERT!!!! Okay it's been a bit, but I'm curious what people's collections look like these days (in actuality my cable pissed me off for the last time & I can only cuss at GTA Online so much). Simple enough, pics weapons you (or family) own or use in military/police service & relevant comments. I would also answer questions on subject. Just a headsup, this is almost a 5 year bump so quoted prices have probably changed & a lot of images are gone. Surprised mine are still there as the photo account they're in was attached to my exGF & thought she would have replaced have replaced them all w/ Lithuanian midget porn. So if Chris is on Holiday on Malta or something, let him know his favorite GD American found a working keyboard. No, the guy w/ the Dragonov is not from Duck Dynasty.
