    You can join it here:
    Rockstar Games Social Club - The Older Gamers

    You'll see once you do you can be in up to 5 crews but only represent 1 at a time. I've currently been representing a crew with a working emblem and 300 members in the hope of finding folks to game with. So far I've had 0 games with someone on a headset and a few with folks from the crew.

    Hastarin's Tip of the Day! Use the Internet on your phone and Maze Bank to deposit cash instead of risking getting to an ATM.

    And of course it release while I'm away on a weeks holiday. Oh well, hopefully the server issues are sorted by Sunday when I return. Now to buy an xbox headset...will any USB one work or do I need an actual xbox one?

    AFAIK you'll need an XBox one that plugs into your controller. I invested in a Turtle Beach (X41) headset when I was into Battlefield 3.

    If you happen to be in Australia EB have some headsets on sale atm:
    https://ebgames.com.au/any/any?q=xbox 360 headset


    Are you on PS3? I've read it's just not working at all.

    But don't worry I think I've managed to find 4 different jobs that would actually download. I have to wonder if they've disabled most of them on purpose until they get various issues fixed so people that can play don't get too much of an advantage.

    Fired up the game today and I'd lost my L11 character. :mad:

    I started another one in the 2nd slot and so far ALL Jobs have been working. Perhaps they've actually fixed something.

    I managed to do the first 'race' with lamar then got the day/night floating out the world bug - Going to hold off until the weekend until I try again - Still got lots of story to do until then.

    Nothing wrong with this, this just allows people that can't devote many hours to grind due to RL to experience all aspects of the game.

    The only time using real money in games is an issue is when it is used to buy items that cannot be attained via freeplay grinding.


    As to GTA Online got home from work this morning and was finally able to get online and not have the game fail to load at the first race.

    I discovered one thing you do not have to spend money repairing your car, just drop out of online then drop back in and your car should be fully repaired.
    Spent most of my time driving around and robbing convenience stores.

    I ended up grabbing this one which has the advantage of being universal (PS3, XBOX, Wii, WiiU and Master Race)

    Afterglow Universal Wired Headset.

    Off to join the TOG crew so I'll be set as soon as I fly back home Sunday...Have Monday and Tuesday work and kid free....CAN NOT WAIT :)

    It's nice to see us getting a few members in the crew. Beats the 4 we had for Forza Horizons! :p

    A couple of quick notes.

    1. I've been promoting everyone to Representatives for the hell of it. If anyone wants to be promoted to Lieutenant/Commissioner (to be able to manage the crew) let me know.

    2. I'm mostly playing in another crew at the moment (AUST) since it has plenty of folks online in my timezone, but if anyone is on 360 and online feel free to hit me up with a message/friend invite and I can switch crews and join you if I'm on.

    Amongst other general mission annoyances (can't complete mission, getting stuck and having to exit game, inconsistency in clipping creating issues etc) i'm not able to buy properties in single-player at the moment either. I'm actually a little shocked considering how bug-free generally i've found the other GTA games... I guess i've been spoilt in the past, but a couple missions for me have been some of the most frustrating experiences i've had before due to these things.
