I think I've finally fixed my router issues. Have had maybe 20 games of R6 Siege in the last day (this on top of zero games from when I bought it at release).

I've also been able to join lobbies in GTA V Online, something I've also never been able to do before.

Happy times!

Did two heists last night, partied up with some randoms... good fun! Feeling very motivated to play a bunch more and while I can't afford to be a CEO, I can at least join a biker gang.

RAW DATA VR game is intense!
having a great time with this VR setup. really easy to plug in and start up (takes me 2mins).

Top marks for the heads up on xmas day mate.

Claimed!... but no lesbian themed Tracer skin though.

EDIT: Decided to claim on my bro's account too since he's busy prepping something to take over for xmas lunch and the lucky bugger got a gold junkrat skin.

Are they only available today? Or will they be there to open when I get back to my PC in a few days? Not around to claim them (after I just bought a bunch of loot boxes when the Christmas event started)

Guess they made it last a bit to cover off on having to give out any NYE loot boxes too.

Ah fantastic! Here's hoping for Yeti Winston, I missed out on that skin with the boxes I bought, yet somehow managed to unbox Zaryas Christmas skin and emote three times each.

BOOM, $1.2M made last night in about 90 minutes of gameplay.

These dudes I was partied up with were at it again. They've got this technique wherein the Fleeca mission (it's the same bank robbery you do in the SP game that you escape from on motorbikes), the heist leader will apportion the loot so that one person gets $0 (so 50/25/25/0) and you'll read why shortly... what happens then is you do the robbery (the easy part) but instead of leaving the area and getting on the bikes, two players stay inside the bank while the other two kill all the cops out the front with rocket launchers. Then, the two inside run outside briefly just to trigger the checkpoint then they run back in.

At this point, the player with the all-important final checkpoint (will explain in a tic) suicides which fails the mission. However, your team then respawns at the end of the motorbike run. We hide in a building while someone goes and gets their nearby armoured vehicle and comes to get us. Then its a very long car ride with a 5-star wanted level right through to the ending and the easy cash.

The trick is, as you're in the boat heading to the mission ending marker, the person that received the $0 loot quits out of the game so for that person, they don't register as finishing the mission and instead create the checkpoint that is used to avoid the whole motorbike section.

Because when you get shot after the heist (or crash badly) you lose money, this keeps the $1.25M pretty much intact leading to more money for everyone. Everyone takes turns in creating the checkpoint too, and the person that quits out is the one that gets $0.

So yeah, suddenly I'm very close to having enough cash to become a CEO and buy myself a corporate headquarters!


Also joined up with another random running other cash-grab missions... all sorts of shenanigans. So much fun, so glad my router is fixed.

That's probably it. The word Fleeca appeared in the achievement that popped after first completion.

Fleeca was like that tutorial heist thing at the start. We found a glitch that let you drive your armoured karuma in the vehicle section, was a great was to farm the money.

Just became a CEO. $$2.7M for the office space and another $1.5M on a vehicle warehouse. Jesus.

Yay for having a JB Hifi e-card to use... bought some Xbox coinage and bam... $40 later here I am.

EDIT: Stole my first car and did $2,000 in damage to it. Oopsie.

EDIT 2: rightyho. Sold it to a specialist, so paid $18k for mods increasing my commission from $33k to $93k... short 2 mile drive and bang, I've had fun and I've made 90k... all without having to try and find people to help me!

The new import/export DLC is great for solo grinding money, especially over Christmas as there's a 50% bonus on sale prices for stolen cars. Made close to $9mil on Christmas Eve just stealing and selling import/export cars.

The prices of the new vehicles on Warstock are ridiculous though, I've unlocked most of the new missions by filling up my CEO garage but waiting until after Christmas so I can do these new missions with friends to unlock the new vehicles for cheaper, because I'm not spending $4mil on a new car.

Yeah, Shark cards are clearly what the game is now based around.

When you say import/export is that Ceo jobs or is that from the dodgy car yard guys sms'?

There is SO much to do in this game now, it's a little bewildering.

CEO Jobs, the middle option on your PC in your office. As you steal more cars you unlock more of the import/export missions in the 3rd option on the PC, which are basically 4 player missions ripped straight from Fast and Furious movies, and they're amazingly fun to play.

Made another mil tonight with a few more thefts. With a top-end vehicle I'm making $150k a pop... hardest mission so far was a dude I had to chase down who had cops all over him... almost impossible (spent $30k on bribes!). I've left 3 cars in my warehouse for now as they're all part of some sets... would be good to see this FF action you talk of!

All I want now is an attack Buzzard that I can fly off the top of my marble CEO headquarters!

I've noticed there's a new way of trolling on Rocket League. Had a couple of times now where people have joined the game only to drive around aimlessly. Seems pointless for everyone involved.
I had a guy do this in the game I just played, he was literally just going up the wall until he'd fall down then trying again, for a full 5 mins.... whats even the point of that?

Finally had a chance to look at Hitman, the training mission is quite impressive. Lots of options for different approaches which is what you want from this sort of game.

I've been straight fire in Rocket League this weekend winning most of my games with MVP, not sure if its cause I've taken a break for so long and I'm coming in fresh but its been great, nice break for the shittyness that is Overwatch competitive mode. Don't know why I decided to play that during school holidays.

Started Pillars of Eternity on the weekend (thanks secret santa) I immediately had flashbacks to Baulders Gate, really excited to get into it.

Also smashed out some AC Syndicate. Good to be playing and AC game again after Unity was such a let down.

I'm almost done with GTA V singleplayer again, and I have this nagging urge to play through GTA IV once I'm done.

I was never a huge fan of certain parts of the story, but most of it is pretty great. And I know that map like the back of my hand.

Was surprised to find sections of the GTA V map recently that I'd never visited, Jambo. The ampitheater and another large mining section. Leads me to think there's a few more surprises in store.

Do go back and check out GTA:O, it's almost entirely another world nowadays.


Revisited two titles recently that I'm really glad I reinstalled. Just Cause 3, now that I've unlocked the rocket-wingsuit, is it's old pleasing self with the calm rhythm of shooting all the red things.

Mad Max is the other... gut-shotting, grunting and stabbing my way across the landscape. It's like Shadow of Mordor but not shit!
