GTAV Launch Week Fun: Fist Fighting a Shark, Trevor the Fashion Icon, Mythbusters & More

Posted on September 23 2013, 1:17pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

It's been truly awesome to see all the fun, unpredictable and amazing things that GTAV players have been doing in the game world over the past week - thank you everyone for the incredible support and here's just a few standout videos and pieces from launch week we wanted to share in case you haven't seen them as yet. Please share with the Social Club community in comments any other great clips or photos you've seen as well...

First off, the gents from GTAV O'Clock attempt to go mano a mano with a shark... see the outcome:



There's been lots of fun over at Buzzfeed with one writer documenting his epic nearly two-straight-days single-sitting first play of the game as well as this great pictorial proclamation that Trevor Philips is THE Breakout Menswear Star of 2013, complete with a Snapmatic photolog of T styling and profiling all across LS and Blaine as only he can.

Just yesterday, DefendTheHouse posted the first in a new series of mythbusting vids to try and ascertain whether car engine backfire can ignite gasoline trails, whether clever leading of police choppers near the wind farm can help you elude them without having to fire a shot, and other tips...



And the late night talk shows all had a bit of monologue fun with GTAV last week, but the standout may have been Conan O’Brien's Clueless Gamer segment where he took to the streets of Los Santos trying his hand at the Father/Son mission, and found out first-hand what happens when you get handsy at the Vanilla Unicorn...

        Hi I am unable to do any main missions now, I've completed Lester's assasination missions and I have completed all the stranger and freak missions, when switching characters franklin has a number '1' underneath him and the other two have nothing. I haven't completed franklins space rock mission. My friend is further on than me and they said they didn't do that mission and they have 61% of the game complete and I'm only on 45.2%. I really need some help and I don't really want to delete my game progress.
        I have deleted some other game data, I have also removed the title updates for xbox live, and I have tried putting sleep mode on and off so I'm puzzled on what to do. I just want to complete the game. If someone can help me that would be so good thankyou for reading.

        Ps I'm really sorry if this isn't the right place to post it but I'm struggling to fix this

                  gta online is trash all you get is your stuff taken and nothing back cause rock star mad broke cant afford better servers for god sakes yall had what 5 years to lok and set stuff up.I would not recommend this game to any body unless rock star gets its ass in gear and actuly fixes something and not just dreams and promises to do so.

                            although it is a hefty cash sum we are receiving, I cant help but think; that it isn't enough. I am very grateful for the amount we are getting but there is a tiny voice in my mind saying: 'its not enough'. and I think that is because of how much things cost on the online mode. I mean there is one thing I want on it and that is the entity xf (I think that is its name) and even with that 500k , I still wont be able to afford it. I'm sorry R*; but I don't see how we only get 500k when there are people on the game that have been using exploits to gain the games currency. I think it is reasonable to ask that you change the cash sum to $1 million.
