what are the good cars in this game? I haven't found one I really like. The Cheetah and Comet were my favorites in VC/SA. I read they're both in 5 but haven't noticed them yet.

I invest all my money, every last dollar, into the competing companies before the assassination missions. Watch the stock over the next 5-10 minutes, and it grows to up to 50% increase. Then sell and double your money.

Ive been afraid to do that. I keep thinking one of the missions will go badly and it will end in a loss.

I invest everything I have, minus 100,000K. So what if I lose all my money? You know there will be more missions with more money coming along soon.

Some sort of irrational fear of money loss dating back to gambling rupees in Legend of Zelda circa 1989

SteamOS is the First of Valve's Three Big Reveals
Valve takes another step away from Windows

Valve co-founder Gabe Newell has been very outspoken in his criticism of Windows 8. He viewed the OS as the beginning of the end of PC gaming, in particular because he feared Microsoft's walled garden approach could eventually be used to shut out the competition. It's not really surprising, then, that the first of Steam's big three announcements this week is the introduction of a Linux-based SteamOS.

I think one of the announcements will be a Steambox, but it doesn’t look like Valve is going for exclusivity on that point. The announcement for SteamOS says “SteamOS will be available soon as a free download for users and as a freely licensable operating system for manufacturers.” In other words, it looks like Valve plans on creating a competitive marketplace for Steambox hardware. For example, maybe we will eventually be able to buy a Dell Steambox for streaming videos and playing casual games, or an Alienware Steambox for hardcore gaming, or an Apple Steambox that doesn’t do anything better than any other hardware but somehow still costs three times as much. :wink: Competition could keep prices down and provide for more hardware innovation.

Random instance: Had a woman going "Help help! They're attacking her! Please help!"

Remembering this thread, I shot her in the head immediately.

Are the strippers in GTA V actually topless? All of the screenshots I can find online are censored.
