I’ve jumped back into GTA V Online for the last few days, now a heady 131, each and every RP earned, not a single one glitched or cheated, honest as the day is long, odd for a game about crime and illegal street racing lol.
Mainly I will participate in races, I have about a 40% win rate, not good but the primary goal is to finish and get the RP’s and GTA$, throw in a few survivals and a mission or two and I am set for the evening,
After completing this game to 100% and getting my one and only platinum PS3 trophy from GTA, I am actually looking forward to this on the PS4 when it finally hits the shelves, I am even planning on repeating that process when I get my grubby hands on it :)
GTA Online needs a few improvements tho make it really great, ranging from game mechanics to cosmetics. Firstly I think you should be allowed to add race decals, numbers, logos etc to car doors, maybe even have a “Racing Skin”. If you go to the effort of customising a car, paint job, bumpers, lights, exhaust etc then that should be represented in races where you have to race a “stock” car and you happen to own one of them.
Also the ability for us to play our own music off our HDD’s would be great, most of the time I actually turn off the radio in the menus/options as soon as I can, some of the songs they have included are pretty good, the rest are just ok, Banging down the road with Slipknot blaring from my in car radio would be just awesome!
The post race “Job select” screen needs a revamp, if I am there to race, it should contain races, not give me 6 out of 6 options that are Team Death Match!, sure put the option down the side to change the game mode if people want to vote for a mode change but give me races!!! I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve joined a group of random people in game and we just stick to race after race after race, then all of a sudden the game starts putting more and more alternative game modes in (and a few poor race choices) and the impromptu group just breaks up.
One final thing that is a must Rockstar if you ever read this add the ability to MUTE players like you can in COD! The amount of idiots that let us hear them argue with family, or chat about school work or going to the pub or, and the most annoying thing, sing or play music at us over their mics! stop it, just stop it please!
In other news. . .
Been about two weeks till I resubbed to WoW, not really getting that WoW factor out of it, not that I am disliking the game, hoping that will all change when WoD is released in November. The new models in Patch 6.0.2 are pretty decent and a welcome change to the game (although to be honest about 2 years to late!) the quest line for fighting the Iron Horde at the dark portal was pretty good fun, if somewhat crowded on the first day.
