    Rumpo, Peyote, Stinger GT: GTA Online

    So, the time is almost at hand. We have a crew: http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/..._paper_shotgun

    Because of the way GTA Online's matchmaking works you don't have to be friends with people in your crew to play with them, you just go into the pause menu, move to the Online tab and choose to play with crew. You can also make closed crew-only sessions if you don't want the hassle of unwashed non-RPS folk ruining your enjoyment. If you only want to play with specific people, though, you have to befriend them on Social Club - I don't think there's a way to pick specific crewmates to join.

    Anyway, I'll be playing Online almost exclusively, I may even frequent the RPS Mumble (mumble.rockpapershotgun.com I believe), so if you join the crew I guess I'll bump into you eventually.

    I'm the guy who originally founded the crew back in 2012 and obviously I can't wait to finally play GTA V on the PC.

    Everything neema said is correct, except if I remember correctly there IS a way to join specific crew members from a list of currently playing crewmembers while in-game. That was on the Xbox 360 though so it might be different for PC.

    Anyway, if there is any interest we will look into organising crew events and sessions some time in the future, aswell as assign new crew lieutenants etc. but for now I just look forward to seeing you guys in Los Santos.

    Grand Theft Shotgun? - GTA V

    Just wondering how many of you fine RPS people will be playing GTA V when it comes out this evening and if we should all add each other to the social club thingy and then look into crews and the like.

    Anyway I'm linked here if anyone wants to add me.

    Well, I'm going to try to play GTA Online, but I expect it'll be down for at least a couple of days because of server load - it's happened with the last gen launch, current gen launch and Heist update, so it would be very surprising if it actually worked tonight.

    I wouldn't go as far as saying the servers will be down for days, but they will have trouble for at least the first day after launch for sure. It happened before, it will happen again. I'd be very surprised if it actually works flawless directly after launch.

    Damn it, my game started to load, said it would take 2 minutes, but after a minute came up as being encrypted again! Must. be. patient...

    *edit*

    After 15 minutes of hitting the button and a couple of reboots it's finally unpacking. :)

    I got it on an SSD and after the ca. 200 MB day zero patch it still need's to decrypt and unpack the files. I'm on 15 minutes of unpacking now, and that's as I said on an SSD. I feel for people who got it on an HDD.

    Played a bit this morning, character transfer worked fine, game runs butter smooth, gta online works like a charm.

    I will be interested in playing this online once I got a bit of single player under my belt. Online heist look fun.

    Neema and me played last night.
    It worked perfectly right from release, I am amazed.

    It's just so damn good.

    If it makes you feel any better I spent an hour last night trying to play online and couldn't. So I jumped on the train in single player and spent some time just admiring the scenery; my god does it look stunning.

    Happily I've had no problems getting online today. :)

    I'm still currently waiting for the download to complete (download speed wildly fluctuating between 10KB/s and 10MB/s) but I should be on at some point (hopefully later tonight). My R* name is Hazman.

    [EDIT] Actually another weird thing I've noticed is that the launcher seems to max out one of my CPUs - has anyone else experienced this?

    I'm basically playing this all the time now.
    If you join a session and end up with other RPS crew members just drive up to them and honk or send them a text message with your phone, we played some adversarial modes today with a few crew members and it was a lot of fun.

    Also feel free to use the crew to organise crews for Heists or any other activity you need multiple people for.

    Bought it on a whim yesterday and the download finally finished today. Should have bought it on Steam.

    My in-game handle is meloncrab1.

    I've played it to about 60% on the PS3, so I'm completely new to Online and First Person, but I'm having a lot of fun so far :)
