Halflife 3 would give me a reason to buy a steambox. No way my current iMac would be able to run it, and I'm not buying a new desktop anytime soon.

So I tried to get online yesterday evening. I downloaded the GTA update, then had to do a system update. Finally after 15-20 minutes I get into the game, hit down arrow on the d-pad switch to the fourth character (down) and my screen just goes black. I can hit the PS button and I can bring up the main PS menu, but the only thing I can do is quit GTA. I tried this 2-3 times and always got he black screen so I just gave up and went back to playing single player.

Supposedly, if you make a random female character and do not change anything about her, you can join an online game. I haven't been able to join at all either.

I don't know if this was mentioned in any of the Penguin's threads, but the Penguins used the theme from Morrowind for one of their opening videos.

Got online last night. Was able to create my character and do the first couple missions, then I tried to do the first last man standing match and it just hung trying to find a match to join. I quit since it was late and went to bed. I do have to say there is a lot less traffic in the online world kind of made the place feel a little empty.

Surprised so far how little money you make in this game. Missions seem to go wrong or be a favor. I'm waiting to do more of Franklin's assassination missions until I get more money from other missions so I can make more off the stock market, but it seems like I keep doing crap for free.

Cousin and I spammed the CRAP out of a mission last night online. Kicks out a lot of XP and $3,000 every time, and literally takes 90 seconds to complete. Just kept hitting replay over and over. Went up about 7 levels in an hour.

I think the money comes later in the game, the Heists are the paydays and then once you finish the main story line then do the rest of the assassination missions to make bank. I've heard rumors of people making a billion dollars this way.

More info on the Steambox

Steam Box Prototype Detailed
Powerful, open, and expandable

Valve has just announced some concrete details about their custom-made Steam Box prototype. They’ve built a completely custom enclosure that will house a “high-end, high-performance box, built out of off-the-shelf PC parts.”

Inside the 300 prototypes will be a variety of graphics cards—including the Titan, GTX780, GTX760, and GTX660—and processors—the i7-4770, i5-4570, and some i3s. All of the machines will ship with 16GB DDR3-1600 RAM and 3GB DDR5 on the graphics cards with a 1TB/8GB hybrid SSHD. The power supply will be a 450-watt unit rated 80Plus Gold. The full machine measures only 12 x 12.4 x 2.9 inches and will be running SteamOS.

Online was much more stable last night.

I was in a motorcycle race, and I jumped into a massive lead early after bumping the leader, causing him to lose control. On the next to last lap, I took a turn too sharply and missed the checkpoint, causing me to backtrack. That mistake dropped me to last place, and I ended up finishing 3rd out of 4. It was the Billy Buckner of collapses.

I'd love to do an 8 player race, but the most I've been able to find is 4.

I just want to play with people from LGP so that I am not in a gunfight every 3 seconds because people are asshats.

I had 2 people in separate cars chasing me around trying to ram me. At first it was fun until I realized they weren't going to let up until I died. So I pulled out a gun and shot one of them through the window, but then the other guy pulled out a shotgun, and killed me before I could get to him.

The game proceeded to respawn me like 1000 feet from my car, and the two guys continued to kill me 5 times in a row. I had to leave the session.

I think I sent an invite request for the Pens crew.

How do you link your game to the life invader site?
