Gave it a try. No joy. I'd be fine with either playing something else, or just giving it until Thursday.

I messaged Doug to see if he has any availability for tonight.

If we are going to try something else (aside from what I've already got loaded) I'll need time for downloading.

As would I, most likely. Siege, Vermintide 2, L4D2 are installed. Everything else we discussed is not.

Actually, I think I'm going to bow out for now anyway. My teeth are acting even more tonight, and I don't know that I'd be good company. I'm certainly not up to twitchy gameplay.

Just ran Crime Scenesters. No idea if it will hold, but it seems to be working.

Haven't done one of these video dumps in a while...

GTA Physics, you so crazy!!



More GTA Physics shenanigans.



Yachts only spawn in for specific missions or for player owned instances. I was the only player in this session when this random yacht suddenly appeared.

Chinese hackers?



There has been speculation that Rockstar purposely programmed NPC drivers to be erratic/aggressive around players on a "Vehicle Delivery" mission since any damage taken by the vehicle comes out of the players wallet to make repairs.

You be the judge. (Note the repair cost indicator in the lower right)



But then again, the NPC drivers do some crazy/stupid shit even when you are not on vehicle delivery missions.

Some more GTA Videos...

I'll be there for about half an hour when we start but then I'll have to pick up Jen from work.

I should be gone about 45 minutes and then I'll jump back in.

I may not be there tonight. Or I may, I'm not sure yet. I've got a lot going on with Michelle's move.

And at the same time, I'm not totally feeling the GTA love right now. It doesn't seem like there's much more to accomplish. Those of us who want them have most of the businesses, and wouldn't be actively using any of the others. The way we use the cheat tank means that there isn't any real value in investing in any other vehicles beyond spending days earning to the money to leave them in the garage. Without anything to really work towards, all that's left is a poorly balanced game that consists mostly of downtime for two or three players, with only one usually actively playing.

I'm kinda getting there myself.

So looks like Siege or Vermintide to hold us over until we can all agree on a new game.

Any interest in Fallout 76?

I missed the BETA window on Tuesday but am hoping to try it out on Saturday.

Absolutely a maybe. I'm still waiting to see how it actually plays once there are more impressions instead of publicity polish.

I'd love for us to play anything designed for actual cooperative play. Between Siege and GTA, we've been playing a lot of good games with half-baked cooperative play added as an afterthought.

Hooray! More gameplay videos!

Rainbow Six Siege: Wherein I try to come to the rescue of a wounded Blackhawk. It goes...poorly.



What happens in GTA when a heavily armed/armored vehicle falls in love with a sexy police cruiser?



Incoming attack choppers? Not to worry...



Oh, and there's a new map coming for Siege:

Nice. Here are the last few I needed to upload:

That time a few sessions ago where everyone thought I blew Bob up:



Brian 'helping' us to take off safely.



Always watch for motorcyclists!



Ow.



And finally, what Brian didn't see hurt him.

I used to want this game but after watching videos of players who have been in it since release berating, bitching, and kickin new players who dont know the maps or all the little ways to play has turned me off to it. Theres even a free play weekend and I have no plans to try it. Why must people be so foul.

Are you talking about Rainbow Six? For what it's worth, we've probably got a couple of hundred hours together in this thing, and I'm the only one who's ever really played with random internet people. We just play the co-op mode. It's admittedly thin, but we've had a lot of fun with it.

Hey guys, even though we won't be playing much GTAV for the foreseeable future, you might want to log on to GTA today to get the Christmas Gifts that Rockstar is handing out. They are only available today, Christmas Day, so log on for a few minutes and grab them.

Among the gifts you will receive:

Up-N-Atomizer Ray Gun
Vapid Clique
Fireworks Launcher
Sweaters and other clothing items
Plus ammo, armor, and snacks refills.

Here's a rundown on what you can expect:

Thanks! There is something you unlock every day if you log in.

Are we doing '76 tomorrow? If so, I've done some research. I think our best move is to create separate characters for when we play as a group, and that we specialize them. Different people focus on different skills and fighting styles to free up skills and make us more effective. I was thinking about going with a support/healing build (heavy on Charisma, not too tough, long-range combat, possibly explosives) myself.

Some other suggestions that I've seen are a super-tough melee/power armor character, a heavy weapon character, one person takes hacking and specializes in high level crafting (which is Intelligence based), one lock picking.

I've got my Level 1 character created and standing outside the vault door ready to start.

I selected the Strength Perk card to start out with since I found during the BETA that melee combat was considerably easier than ranged for the first couple of levels.

That seems like a good idea, Blackhawk. Sounds kinda like Brian could go for the super-tough melee character. I'll find out what Bob was thinking of (he has 1st level character ready) and then I'll try to fill in the gap.

If you log on to GTA5 today you can get a free Buzzard Attack Helicopter.

Just log on and go to the Warstock website to claim it.

If you want to customize it you'll have to own a hangar and park it in there first. (Not that there's much customization to be done other than changing the color.)

My solo character found the plans for the Large Water Purifier. With Bob's help I transferred the plans to my group character who is now sitting around his camp collecting purified water for the group. I hope to have the patience to collect 40 (10 for each of us) for each gaming session. Or maybe only every other session.
