I actually plan to be there on Sunday. For what it's worth, I haven't had time in the past three weeks to play any games at all, save for those I've played with you guys. Or to read a book. Or to watch a movie. Or to sleep. It's been absurdly busy.

So the pop-up alerts we got last night announcing GTA6 coming in 2019 are false and the result of somebody running a mod.

Interesting that someone running mods could affect others not running them. I'm not running any myself.

Picked up Siege on XBone a while back to placate my BIL and my sister's attendant nagging. I fired it up last night.

Neutralize Cell took entirely too long. And the post-rescue flood of tangos in Heavily Fortified can bite my ass.

There's a trick (or method) to Neutralize Cell that makes it much easier to do within the target time limit. Check online (you tube videos, etc.) for help.

So, here's tonight's fun. This was right after BD and I got blown up just after respawning from the orbital cannon.



And then we changed servers. There were so many of the things that they apparently got 'stuck' in my cache. I was getting about 10-15 FPS at that point until Brian drove us far enough away for them to despawn.

Yeah, public servers are the Mos Eisley Spaceport of online gaming.

In other news, I just wanted to buy some snacks.

Oh, and as I promised last night, here are the guides to earning money as quickly as possible in both a group and as a solo player.

First, group play...



Then, how to work it by yourself.

Those hinges do have a limited repair capacity. Those doors have been reattached a couple of hundred times, and they're just getting tired. You may just need to replace the whole car one of these days.

I want to pick up the Insurgant eventually but there's just so many other things to spend those GTA Dollars on plus the new DLC drops tomorrow and that will add another bunch of stuff to buy as well.

Currently I'm saving up to get the large garage to start the import/export stuff.

A couple more solo play session videos.

I'm not sure what my character was doing while I was offline but this was a hell of a way to wake up.

I should point out that it's not exactly a random bathroom. It's the bathroom in the nightclub that I own in the game.

I did notice that there was a woman in the bathroom so I guess I'm pretty progressive as far as bathroom usage goes.

Well, you are the owner. And I doubt you're real worried about building codes and bathroom laws.

This guy did not want to give up his car.



So, if you had a train derailment would you continue to use that track while cleanup procedures were ongoing?
Yes. Yes you would.

A compilation from last night's play.

My favorite is the helicopter pilot being eviscerated by the engine on my seaplane.
Oh, and spending $1000 to have a mugger rob Bob for $10. :)

Just a thought - one of the games we discussed in the past was Insurgency. It is currently free on Steam. Even if we don't play it now, it might be a good idea to grab it while the price is right.

I got in a little while ago, and I'm honestly just too tired right now to do anything more active than stare at moving pictures on a screen. Sorry - I'll catch you all next time.

This one is a bit longer than usual but it's such a fun mission even when you don't have a helicopter crash on top of your head.

This just came out today, but when it drops in price someday, I'd really like to give Strange Brigade a run in 4-player coop (assuming the reviews hold up.)

I watched a bunch of Beta videos on this a while back and was wondering whatever became of it.

Ok, I've got a bunch saved up here.

This is what happened with Darkwater when we had that stranger pop in to one of his sessions. I was watching to see if he landed correctly. The result was... explosive.



A few weeks back, Brian posted a video of a helicopter crashing right in front of his car. Here's... the rest... of the story.



A supply run for BD almost turns into a comedic tragedy when I accidentally hit my JATO button while landing.



This is the footage from when "Green" hacked in and blew up our cargo. Watch that asshole teleporting around...



A short one. A motorcyclist takes a flight.



Last night, in which I invent the shoulder-fired torpedo. It may need some work.



A while back we spontaneously failed the garbage truck mission. This is where... something happened. I'm still not sure what.



Last one. This is my perspective on that mid-air collision with Brian.
