GTA Online Will Go Hog-Wild In Bikers Update

“It’s not really a place, it’s a feeling,” biker icon James Hurley once said of his dream destination. “Sometimes riding at night, I punch off the headlights and roll the throttle in just rocket blind into the dark.”

But some bikers are dirty boys. They cuss, smoke cigarettes, refuse to tuck their shirts, and don’t even kiss their mothers goodbye. These rough tough scruffs congeal into gangs, roaring down the highway honking their hogs and yelling e.g. “Hey you, go on, get out of it!” Don’t you find that secretly thrilling? If so, watch for the next major Grand Theft Auto Online [official site] update, which will focus on bikers and bike gangs.

GTA V Players Have Solved A Beastly Mystery

The urban legends surrounding Grand Theft Auto V [official site] and its supposed myriad of secrets are just about as daft as people who actually think Bigfoot exists. But I guess the only people laughing now are 30 “codewalkers” who, against all odds, believed in their conviction and have solved a months-long mystery involving golden peyote, Bigfoot, and a 1985 teen comedy about a werewolf.

Get A Job Working For Another Player In GTA Online

I'm paid to simply hold a gun like this for eight hours a day.

Not everyone can be The Big Cheese, and every gangster movie in the world shows the terrible fate befalling anyone who tries. So give up. Accept that you’re just another brick in the wall, another cog in the machine, another putz put on this beautiful green Earth to make a richer person’s life easier. Relax. It’s fine.

Grand Theft Auto Online Plays Thanksgiving Handegg

29! 42! 38! 87! 69! Hut! Hut! Hike! And that’s how the Pilgrims came in 1492 to the land we now know as the United States of A. One genocidal colonisation later, Thanksgiving in November is now a happy time for families to come together to eat pumpkins carved into the shape of turkeys, bicker, argue, threaten to call the police for real this year, and shout “29! 42! 38! 87! 69!
