Get Rich, And Die While Trying: Making Money In GTA V Online

Upgrading And Other Gaming Activities

Upgrading And Other Gaming Activities I’ve been rather focused on Star Wars Battlefront for the last couple months, but it isn’t the only thing I’ve done lately. One big thing is computer upgrades. First, I replaced my GTX 670 FTW edition (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130843&cm_re=GTX_670_FTW-_-14-130-843-_-Product) with a SSC 2.0 GTX 970 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487088).

GTA V Online: News And Thoughts At Rank 120

I’ve surpassed the Rank 120 milestone, and unlocked the last rank-restricted weapon:  The Minigun.  I’d used it before, because you can get it in certain jobs and missions, plus the random special prize boxes that drop.  It is a very powerful weapon, but uses too much ammo to make it economical to use instead of …

I hit Rank 95 this weekend and am on track to reach the major milestone of Rank 100.  In many ways, Rank 100 is the level where you have finally “made it” in the game.   There are a lot of Rank 100 rewards unlocked, and nothing nearly as impressive comes along after that.  You …

GTA V Online: Legit Play Vs. Boosting, Glitching, And Cheating

Boosting, Glitching, And Cheating Finding ways to do things in the games like GTA which go far beyond the design intent is, in a sense, just another part of what makes playing games enjoyable. In single player games, the use of CHEAT CODES and game mods are built into the game (or easy enough to …

GTA V Online: Annoyances In A Great Game

Doing this one because it is short, if not sweet…. I’ve hit Rank 75, and look to be on track for 10 Ranks per week.  I’ve been doing my Daily Objectives as much as possible, and lots of Jobs and Heists.   Most of the time, the game plays smoothly without trouble.  But sometimes, that …

GTA V Online — The Curse Of Cheaters, The Bane Of All Multiplayer Games

First thing I have to say is that despite the fact that there are some players using blatant hacks and messing up the game for other players, they aren’t so common as to ruin your day every time you play.  You can escape them by switching sessions, and unlike FPS or sports games, GTA Online …
