As we take a trip down memory lane (by way of Ganton), we've picked out 10 fun GTA Online Jobs published by nostalgic community members (5 each on PS3 and Xbox 360) using the Creator and shared them below. To play these, just click on the title link and select "Add to Game" to bookmark it for your Crew's next GTA Online session.Race Dam Rider by SyxTnynE (PS3)This well-balanced Race for 2-wheelers will take you from the Land Act Dam down to the northern outskirts of East Vinewood and back up through the Grand Senora Desert. Try a two lap option with Motorcycles then try switching it up with a single lap BMX for two great takes on this scenic route. Creator SyxTynE poses the challenge: "CJ beat the dam race, now can you?"Team Deathmatch Grove Sweet Grove by Captain_Fred01 (PS3)Grove Street itself has certainly been the focal point for many Deathmatch creators looking to represent the green and relive their glory days with The GSF. This particular take on bringing some mayhem to the block shows off a measured balance with an even spread on placement between conventional firearms and melee weapons. Captain Fred gives a familiar call to arms in the Job’s description: "Family's for life homie, you down?"Race A Home in the Hills by Rozza3 (PS3)Many will recall the great view from Madd Dogg's luxurious hillside mansion in Mulholland. This particular nod to that location will direct you through a sharp and winding circuit starting in Sandy Shores and along the jack knife turns of Baytree Canyon. Ultimately, you’ll arrive at an equally swanky residence in Galileo Park to bring home the win but be warned you'll need to navigate nimbly, so as not to smack directly into an unforgiving wall or unfortunate roadblock along the way.Race N.O.E. by ala-eddine97 (PS3)In the original San Andreas mission, Agent Mike Toreno tells Carl Johnson to "wake up and smell the coffee" and advises him to fly low under the radar, taking a "Nap of the Earth" style route to deliver a crucial package by nightfall. This equally demanding Air Race carves a large ark across Blaine County, starting near the Alamo Sea and concluding at Sandy Shores - and requires you to take on low-key altitudes beneath bridges and outcroppings to clear the checkmarks. Keep an eye out for rival flyers.Race Sweet and Kendl by GoochTheftAuto95 (PS3)Bike Race creator GoochTheftAuto95 describes this Job as, "A BMX Race from Hill Valley Cemetery to Grove Street and all the sights in-between. A homage to the San Andreas Mission with the same name." Playing through, you'll certainly start to feel some nostalgia for those early Los Santos missions but there are also some surprisingly massive drops mixed in along this course to keep you focused.Race Bloodring Bangers by Arms Dealer (Xbox 360)The Demolition Derby style Banger was a mainstay vehicle of the Bloodring Coliseum in Vice City that carried over to the primetime Blood Bowl in San Andreas. Our Creator in this instance has cleverly used inverted ramps inside the ULSA campus track and field stadium to trap "contestants" in an action-packed GTA Race. Great placement of Rockets, Speed Boosts and weapon pickups ratchet the carnage levels to a rambunctious roar.Team Deathmatch Gray Imports by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)According to the Creator of this 2-16 player Team Deathmatch based in the harbors of Elysian Island, you have been "sent over to the docks by CJ to disrupt a meeting between the Russians and the Ballers". Be sure to bring a large group and spread out your forces high and low, as every manner of weapon seems to have spilled out of the shipping crates on to the ground - immediately up for grabs to allies and enemies alike.Team Deathmatch Grove Street Brawlers by Pressure.Drop (Xbox 360)Being both a member of the well-known GTAPhotographers Crew and the Creator Core Club, Social Club member, Pressure.Drop appears to have a real knack for creative expression in GTA Online. In this mission, set in the heart of Davis, he takes it back to basics with an array of melee weapons to make things pretty unpleasant in Grove Street. Don't get it twisted though: there are also Molotov Cocktails and Tear Gas grenades to keep your enemies at bay or to press the advantage for your homies.Race Little Loop by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)The prolific #Throwback Job Creator JllThe JokerllK follows up with a solid motorbike Race named after the classic San Andreas circuit - with some great ramp placement. Setting the scene, the description reads: "Cesar Vialpando invites you to a sports bike race with ramps and obstacles, taking you from Downtown Vinewood to Los Santos airport, ending at CJ's old crib on Grove ST. Good luck."Race Wrong Side of the Tracks by GTAMANIAC99 (Xbox 360)In this fairly straight-forward GTA-style Race, local motorcycle enthusiasts willfully engage in a balls-to-the-wall, destructive tear down the LS train tracks running west to east from Cypress Flats, passing through Mirror Park and concluding in the Tataviam Mountains. You may luck out and tear ahead of the pack at some point but be warned: close-quarters exchanges in the numerous narrow tunnels you will encounter going towards the finish line could even the score at a moment's notice. If you've spotted or created an epic GTA Online Job themed around one of our games, a certain mission or even your favorite movie, be sure to tag it #throwback on Social Club and drop us a link either here in the comments or via Mouthoff, so we can check it out. Previously:GTA Online Creator Throwback Jobs: Red Dead Tribute SpecialGTA Online Creator Throwback Jobs Inspired by Classic GTA MissionsTue, 21 Oct 2014 11:44:28 -0400Fan Art: Snapmatic Surrealism, Bullworth GIFs, Throwback Art and Morehttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52331/fan-art-snapmatic-surrealism-bullworth-gifs-throwback-arthttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52331/fan-art-snapmatic-surrealism-bullworth-gifs-throwback-artOur latest collection of fan-created visual artistry covers a diverse variety of styles and influences, including dreamlike treatments of Snapmatic photos, one of our favorite pieces of San Andreas fan art from back in the day and a study of Michael and Trevor as imagined in their not-so-innocent youth.As always, should you come across any impressive GTA or Rockstar-related art or photos that you think other fans need to see, be sure to send them our way via Mouthoff and follow us at instagram.com/rockstargames for all our latest official pics.         SNSTR_SHDW of the GOLD GANG Crew has been sharing these surreal scenes on Twitter, captured via Snapmatic and then edited using imaging software.Epseelutely, fka Radiopappa, makes this a hat-trick of Fan Art post mentions on the Newswire, having been previously featured for illustrations of young Trevor, Michael and Amanda pre-concert and the amazing GTA x Bullworth crossover. Here, the motif of Michael and Trevor in their formative years is continued with these detailed character studies, described as "stuff from back when I was thinking about ideal North Yanktons..."   Julia Scott is another Newswire Fan Art post alumni, with her stylish GTAV GIFS featured here back in July. Here she has Bully's Jimmy and Gary superbly drawn and with backgrounds nicely summing up the sophomoric chaos one might expect during a term at Bullworth.   A pair of throwback pieces nodding to classic GTA games. On the left we have an oldie but goldie - one of our favorite pieces of San Andreas fan art created by Filipe Aguiar back in '08. This month being the 10th anniversary of CJ's romp across the West Coast, it seemed a good time to dig this out from the vaults. Meanwhile, on the right we have a more recent piece by deviantARTist Cilab, depicting Vice City Stories protagonist Vic Vance, looking a bit longer in the tooth than we remember him.   We featured Reuben Dangoor's study of Trevor a little while back. He has since followed up with this portrait of Michael (left), with narrowed eyes and a furrowed brow that show a man with the kinds of problems only cheap liquor and expensive therapy can soothe. On the right, just another day at the office for a blood-stained Trevor... stepping out of an inferno in this piece by Argentinean artist Franco Raviglione.    New Zealand designer Felix Tindall (shrimpy99 on deviantART) has produced a large gallery of movie and game inspired posters in what he describes as his own "broad styles of minimalism". Red Dead and L.A. Noire are the first entries in his "Rockstar collection" series, with Max Payne 3 and GTAV coming down the line. Looking forward to them, Felix!Following the slick custom PS4 console skin in our previous fan pics roundup, tcmfgames on Instagram shared the perfect accessory - this fan-made controller bearing the new Starlet art that accompanied the “A Picket Fence and a Dog Named Skip” trailer. We're not sure who the creator is, but they seem to be all set for November 18th. Norwich, England-based mural artist Gnasher sent over this custom GTAV mural via Twitter, featuring Franklin and Chop on guard to keep any would be slumber-spoilers at bay. Geoffrey Halleux is a cosplayer from Belgium and this photo, channeling Marston mid-Dead Eye, features a costume that's entirely hand-made. Also check out Geoffrey's gruesome shot of a (fake!) buck going under the knife. Bent pen tops and an ink-splattered table top show the work that has gone into this detailed L.A. Noire drawing by devinatARTist Ludicrous-Speed.  Previously:Trevor on Canvas, Damned Brotherhood Portraits, You Only Live Once Photo Journal & MoreA Lamar and Trevor Cross-Stitch Collaboration, Vintage Trio Portraiture, Trick Photography Snapmatics and More The GTAV Animated GIF Artwork of Julia Scott, Trevor Gets Patriotic & MoreMon, 20 Oct 2014 11:30:15 -0400Rockstar Official Livestreams this Week featuring GTAV Soundtrack's Flying Lotus, Thundercat & Morehttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52330/rockstar-official-livestreams-this-week-featuring-gtavhttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52330/rockstar-official-livestreams-this-week-featuring-gtavTune in this week at the Rockstar Twitch channel for a pair of very special GTA Online livestreams:Thursday Oct 16th     1:30PM Eastern*GTAV Soundtrack Edition featuring FLYING LOTUS and THUNDERCATWe're honored to welcome FLYLO FM's own Flying Lotus and Thundercat to the official livestream tomorrow afternoon live from Rockstar NYC while the guys are in town touring in support of the new album You're Dead!.

All this and more, straight ahead.MIND TRIPGTA V Online - WELCOME TO MY MIND by NexxuzHDThe past year has brought us lots of excellent timelapse videos, but here YouTuber NexxuzHD has kicked things up a notch with this dazzling presentation. Awesome video effects and seemingly painstakingly crafted shots showcase an ever-changing world literally morphing around one man as he travels through greater Los Santos. The vivid yet dreamy "Welcome To My Mind" is certainly one not to sleep on.Also Check Out:A World In Motion (GTA V Timelapse) by HnS Games HOT PURSUITGTA 5 Stunts - Incredible Police Chase! by MafiaStunting! / VaktikWe've definitely seen some impressive videos of players utilizing Franklin's special driving abilities to evade police during a 5 Star Wanted Level, such as clayman90's "5 Stars" Police Chase - but never before have we witnessed someone do it with such finesse and mastery on two wheels. With a decidedly high degree of difficulty, Franklin must dodge and weave to avoid being knocked off his motorcycle all throughout this chase. The definitive and utterly jaw-dropping moment occurs just past the three minute mark when our driver manages an over the shoulder sticky bomb toss at pursuing LSPD Helicopters while ramping directly into the sky. Remarkable skills on display here. Also Check Out:GTA 5 Worlds Scariest Police Chases Ep 1 by TheSLAPTrain1 NOSTALGIC NODSBranberry Shorts - Three Brothers in the Civil War by Sonny EvansSonny Evans, the creative and talented fan behind the Branberry Shorts videos series (which include music video & tv intro remakes, the unglamorous lives of skydive stunters and more) brings us this short film shot in GTA Online that tells the story of three brothers' tragic experiences during the Confederate conflict.Also Check Out:GTAV skydiving montage - The Bomb - A stunt montage by Sonny EvansBoardwalk Empire | GTA 5 Reenactment | Boardwalk Empire Intro by 8-BIT BASTARDKnown for creating sharp and spot-on GTA Online parodies of shows and films like The Sopranos and The Godfather, 8-BIT now brings the cool and calculating "Nucky" Thompson to life on the sunny shorelines of Vespucci Beach. Complete with bottles of Pißwasser washing up on the sand, the eye for detail here is great. Check it out for yourself and see how this shot-for-shot homage stacks up against the original intro here.GTA Online | "Best of 2014" Mashup Montage by El SerpeThose who've enjoyed previous efforts from video director and Aegis Legion leader El Serpe, should definitely take in this new mashup featuring a collection of utterly awesome moments masterfully set to a thumping music track that features "300 clips of the most awesome, original, extreme, and plain beautiful moments from the GTA Online community. This summer's 2014 Best of music video mashup montage will help you prepare your next Los Santos vacations." Certainly a great way to play us out of the summer season, El Serpe. MORE RECOMMENDED VIEWINGAlso don’t miss these fun vids that we recently spotted and shouted out on Twitter or simply took note of – make sure you’re following us there to see some great videos shared on the regular:GTA Online - Kill Bill Photo Project by GTA Series Videos: How far would you go to emulate your favorite classic action film and get the perfect Snapmatic shot of it?  GTA Series Video shows there's quite a bit of payoff in the final shot, if you're working with the right group of friends. John Marston // Maquillaje Cosplay Makeup FX by Keevanski: You may recall make-up maestro Keevanki's amazing work on an Undead Nightmare version of John Marston from our last round-up. Now, she applies a slightly different skillset and rather convincing gender-bending brush techniques to create this version of Marston proper. GTA 5: The Matrix Reloaded Remake (Highway Scene) by John Chapman: John previously got our attention with his GTA 5: Terminator 2: Judgment Day Remake. In this go-round he takes on the face-off scene between Morpheus and the translucent Twins from The Matrix Reloaded. Christine (GTA 5 Machinima) by ModernEntertainment: Horror movie buffs will fondly recall John Carpeneter's adaptation of writer Stephen King's jealous and murderously possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury. In this updated rendering we see the creepy car chillingly played by the Declasse Tornado. GTA 5 - BMX FREESTYLE 2 (GTA V BMX Stunts Montage) by RedKeyMon: It's been quite some time since RedKeyMon graced us with his exceptional BMX skills opting for high flying action in turbo-charged motorbikes and Super cars instead, as of late. We think this latest offering was well worth the wait.As always, if you've got an excellent GTA or Rockstar themed clip of your own that you think the world needs to see, feel free to drop it in the comments for the Social Club community to enjoy or send it our way to have a look at mouthoff@rockstargames.com, and we may feature it in a future round-up here at the Newswire. Previously:Original GTAV Trailer in Madrid, Undead Marston Make-Up Tutorial, Pet Shop Boys Tribute & MoreWed, 15 Oct 2014 11:00:53 -0400Rockstar Verified Update: 10 New Cloud Piercing Air Races, Including the #FlightSchool Creator Competition Selectionshttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52329/rockstar-verified-update-10-new-cloud-piercing-air-raceshttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52329/rockstar-verified-update-10-new-cloud-piercing-air-racesThe latest batch of Rockstar Verified GTA Online Jobs take us to the skies above Los Santos and Blaine County, with a squadron of ten Air Races, including our five official selections from the #FlightSchool Event Weekend Creator Competition. These five choices have earned their respective Creators each a cash infusion of GTA$1M plus the AVIATOR custom license plate for their ground-based endeavors. We’ve also selected five runners-up to receive the Rockstar Verified treatment, making them available to play across both PS3 and Xbox 360 (as well as in the upcoming new versions of Grand Theft Auto V launching for PS4 and Xbox One on November 18th and PC on January 27th).Read on below for descriptions of all these new Verified Jobs and make sure to click on each one's title to add a bookmark via Social Club for easy access during your next play-session. Keep an eye out for more Rockstar Verified Jobs coming soon, including our selections from the recent Last Team Standing Weekend Creator Competition.#FlightSchool SelectionsHelicopters follow the coastline of East Los Santos in Dedalus.Dedalus - created by jjjpelo"Easy," reads the one-word description for jjjpelo's long loop along the coastline, but in reality it's anything but. The Swift is the default choice of chopper, and its maneuverability and speed make it an excellent fit. If you're not too busy getting in the blades of your opponents, look out for great views across the city as you climb over the Land Act Dam.Heli Low Fly Zone - created by LoneWolfOfNorthThe introduction of San Andreas Flight School to GTA Online has arguably increased the skill of local pilots, while at the same time encouraged greater recklessness. This creation from LoneWolfOfNorth features some of the most difficult low flying sections we have seen, to the point where we wondered if it could even be classed as flying. We think that this will be a Race that many players will come back to again and again, especially to try and beat the three-minute Lap challenge laid down in the description. Jets look to avoid the rotating turbines of the windfarm as they race to industrial South Los Santos in Dusk.Dusk - created by GunterDaPenguinGunterDaPenguin has made the city the star of this Besra Race, a north to south tour at a time of day (hence the title) when the world beneath your wings has a stunning amber glow. Not that it's advised to spend too long sightseeing - challenging sections weaving through wind turbines and knifing between skyscrapers should keep your attention on the stick.Pylon Slalom - created by manfreygordonConventional logic would suggest that spinning helicopter blades and overhead power cables are rarely a good mix - but conororor has disregarded this completely and created a fun aerial slalom between pylons in the Besra. Quick reactions and close control over your plane's rudders (L1/LB and R1/RB buttons) are a must.An appropriately sponsored Mallard weaves through the aerial obstacle course of Sprunk Air Race #1.Sprunk Air Race #1 - created by kapnkyleThis Mallard Stunt Race is as extreme as the benzene-packed drink from which it takes its name. Loops and tight turns in the skies above Vespucci Beach make for an entertaining test for the most able pilots. Non-Contact is selected by default and we recommend keeping it that way, unless mid-air collisions are your idea of a day at the beach. Runners-UpAfter School - created by KakoQRThe title couldn't me more fitting in this Air Race for San Andreas Flight School graduates looking to take the Besra Training Jet for an off-curriculum cruise. The route is varied, with sections under bridges and over the crest of a mountain, and we suggest keeping the time set to morning so you can enjoy the sunrise around Raton Canyon.Helicopters take off from the peak of Mt Chiliad in Chopper Bombing.Chopper Bombing - created by passlakeThis helicopter Race feels like a change from the norm right out of the gate, with players starting at the peak of Mt. Chiliad and immediately going into what is accurately described as a "near-suicidal descent", followed by a “treetop-trimming run through Paleto Bay”.Chopper Killer - created by LiwethaAnother challenging race in the Swift helicopter, with players starting out at the docks and working their way through downtown, squeezing between buildings and climbing to pass over the Maze Bank Tower.SA Flight School: Racing - created by DemonicStalkerrThis Race is pitched as a chance to put everything you've learned at the San Andreas Flight School to the test, and this proclamation is backed up with a series of tight turns, low flying sections and tight squeezes along its short route. The varied verticality, with some checkpoints requiring you to climb steeply and others forcing you to dive down under bridges, made the Race stand out from the rest.The Flyby sees Jets roar past the quiet beach town of Chumash.The Flyby - created by Vance BurritoAnother great, high speed Jet Race with good variation. Highlights include dangerously low flying sections over the rooftops of Chumash beach houses and under bridges as you skim the water in Lago Zancudo, which are separated by a highly technical number of tight turns around the tower of the Fort Zancudo Military Base. Please note that in addition to occasionally changing Job names due to taste, copyright or other reasons - we also from time to time will make other small edits to players' Jobs before making them Rockstar Verified. This includes, but is not limited to modifying spawn points, improving checkpoints or increasing/decreasing the amount of weapon picks ups for a particular Job. Once Jobs are Rockstar Verified, they become available for play across both platforms, so whether you're on Xbox 360 or PS3, you'll have all these newly Verified creations available in your next Freemode session (and as mentioned above, you can bookmark them at the Social Club for easy access in your next session).Go ahead and post your Job below in the comments (only once, please don't spam) with a punchy explanation of why it's worth checking out. We're always looking for new player-created Jobs to add to the Rockstar Verified program and the best way to get noticed is to have a solid Race, Deathmatch, Capture or LTS that's been thoroughly tested by the community and refined into the most fun and fair experience it can be. PreviouslyClose-Quarters Confrontation, Pure Racing and Major Props10 New GTA Online Jobs Including the #IMNOTAHIPSTER SelectionsDrift Paradise, Hipster Rage and MoreTue, 14 Oct 2014 14:02:30 -0400The Last Team Standing Event Recap: Mae and the Boys vs. The Sidemen, Snapmatic Winners and Morehttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52326/the-last-team-standing-event-recap-mae-and-the-boys-vs-thehttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52326/the-last-team-standing-event-recap-mae-and-the-boys-vs-theThe stakes were high this past weekend as GTA Online players went all-in for the Last Team Standing Event, cleaning up with bonus RP, GTA$ and other exclusive rewards like the weekend-only unlockable Manhunt “Please Stop Me” throwback mask, making their own custom LTS Jobs with newly added Creator mode support in The Last Team Standing Update, and more.

Read on for a recap of our livestream showdown, as well as the winning shots in the #LTS Snapmatic Contest and more.THE OFFICIAL ROCKSTAR LTS EVENT BROADCAST: THE SIDEMEN VS MAE AND THE BOYSAfter losing to Mae and the Boys 2-0 in the opening round, The Sidemen try to find redemption in Hawick. Tune in this week for all 4 parts over at the Rockstar YouTube channel in the GTA Online Sessions Playlist.The weekend festivities kicked off with an epic Last Team Standing livestream face-off between two teams of all-star GTA YouTubers. Mae and the Boys, led by TheMissesMae and featuring Lui Calibre, Mini Ladd and Daithi De Nogla – took on The Sidemen, led by Vikkstar123 and featuring KSI, MiniMinter and Zerkaa. With Lazlow and MLG's veteran competitive play-by-play expert Chris Puckett calling the action, the teams took advantage of the new Rounds system introduced in The Last Team Standing Update to go head-to-head in the “best two out of three” format across several new LTS Jobs.After taking the first Job ("Mount Josiah") in straight sets 2-0, Mae and the Boys continued their winning streak into the first round of match #2 in "Hawick LTS", with Lui proving to be a virtual one-man-army nabbing four out of the five necessary kills. Despite doing his best to survive by way of hanging out beachside in round 3 at "Paleto Bay", last (side)man standing KSI couldn't avoid the inevitable and Mae's Crew found themselves up 3-0 and pitching a perfect game.In "Del Perro Freeway LTS", things finally started to gel for The Sidemen as they came out guns blazing. Led by Vikk's dominating four kills, the guys were able to break their opponent's momentum and take the first round. Not taking well to the sting of mortality, Mae's squad buckled down in round 2 though and were completely flawless, forcing round 3 after a 5-0 domination.With a 1-1 tie and only Lui left alive squaring off against all four of The Sidemen, it looked like Vikk’s squad might keep hope alive with their first match win, but Lui was having none of it. Going on a late round tear, Lui amazingly overcame 1v4 odds and picked off all four remaining members of Team Sidemen, finishing it off by capping MiniMinter to take the deciding round and ultimately the match. Though Puckett declared it the worst choke in recent competitive gaming history, it was all in good, epic fun.In addition to parts one and two, we'll have episodes three and four of this LTS battle posted at the official Rockstar YouTube channel in the GTA Online Sessions Playlist later this week. Subscribe to get notified every time we post a video. Tremendous thanks to all eight of our guest players for being such amazing sports as well as to Chris Puckett, whose chemistry with Lazlow was on display from the get-go.We'd also to like to take this opportunity to shout out our friends in the streaming universe that hosted some great LTS-themed live streams over the weekend.

Post them in the comments so the rest of the community can check them out!AND THE WINNERS ARE...The Snapmatic paparazzi took the new bikes, car, gear and best Last Team Standing memes and let their #LTS imaginations run wild in pursuit of fame and GTA$ fortune. Below are five of our favorites, all first-time Snapmatic photo contest winners who each will receive GTA$1M plus the BODYBAG license plate for their in-game vehicles.The Lights Go OnThis one really should be framed and hanging at the SAGMA. BushyArtwork captures the new LCC Innovation in striking and artful black and white fashion. Entitled “The Lights Go On”MANHUNTWe expected that there would be a fair amount of Manhunt tributes and re-creations happening, but the above “Manhunt” by SPLAP-FART, takes the cake. To truly appreciate it, you have to compare it to this classic screenshot from the original Manhunt release. Not only did SPLAP-FART nail an amazingly close re-creation of the pose, lighting and surrounding area, but also replicated the outfit and used the meme creator to simulate the efx including static – and intentionally shrunk the image down in the meme creator for total surveillance camera effect. Slow clap… We’d be remiss not to throw an honorable mention nod to veteran Snapmatic cameraman ZazDillinger who came damn close with his “Beg 4 Mercy” attempt, and this Kill Cam one entitled “He’s Behind You… (Manhunt)” by KiinGSTeR.Lago ZancudoA gorgeous sunset drenched Furore GT perfectly composed against the San Andreas waves. So lovely. “Lago Zancudo” by Vinewoodonfire.How many ninjas can you see?The very fun “How Many Ninjas Can You See?” by The_Monk52.  We’ll be honest. We have no idea. Tell us, Monk. Although it may be a trick question as Has333 points out in the photo comments: “a true ninja is always stealthy, they don’t take selfies! xD” A Perfect MatchOn a steel horse he rides. “A Perfect Match” by that_VIP_guy – a very clever idea pitting an appropriately chromed-out Hakuchou beside the iconic Rockford Hills stallion statue.Honorable mention to SilverFox_2 who similarly juxtaposed the shark-like nose of the Furore GT beside the famous Vespucci Beach shark sculpture.And a few honorable mentions for some other stellar snaps...Ride the lightning. Luism1987 captures the new Shitzu in the midst of a perfect storm in “Equality Way”.Bjodjus_LXG uses the new Innovation bike, clothes and mask to channel Ghost Rider in "BACK TO HELL!"#HIGHLIFE Snapmatic winner and #INDEPENDENCEDAY runner up HairyHole is back again. With (wait for it…) "Hairy Rim Shot," Mr. Hole gets low to show off the new Furore.The sunset provides the optimal lighting for lvc0034 in "LCC  INNOVATION".The somewhat abstract “The Last Man Standing” by Joe-_-Dalton - an artful suggestion that after all of the bloodshed on the streets of Los Santos, the only pedestrian left standing may be the one blinking in the crosswalk sign. Congratulations as well to our 10 winners of the Event Gear Giveaway, each of whom will be sleeping tight in GTAV Bodybag Sleeping Bags, in addition to taking home a GTAV logo tee and Rockstar stickers.

Read on as well for a war report on the most recent Crew Battles and a couple of our favorite current Crews on Film videos.actual_1411310551Just some of what happens with The Pilots Club (IFLY) Crew, including the pilot license they assigned to co-Commissioner suicideblanche (top right).The release of the San Andreas Flight School Update for GTA Online sent fleets of flight-centric Crews soaring with the new Besra. One such Crew is The Pilots Club (IFLY) Crew, a serious, super organized, detail-oriented outfit made up of some actual, licensed pilots. Run by Leader Pilot.Keegan, a Cadet Pilot in the Air Training Corps (part of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets), IFLY got its start when he couldn't find a dedicated flight Crew made up of serious aviators. So was born The Pilots Club, a community that parlay their love for flight for fun in the world of GTA Online while networking and making connections all over the world. In an interview conducted via email, Keegan had this to say:“With members in places ranging from Norway, Saudi Arabia, Serbia and more, IFLY coordinates such activities as "air shows, role play flights with air traffic control and ground maps and detailed aviation flight maps."Additionally, IFLY formed The Alliance, a group of Crews and airlines that follow a set of guidelines that aim to provide optimum safety and performance for pilots and passengers. "They work safely (thanks to a security company) and get paid (passengers are made to pay flying fees)," Keegan explained.The guidelines are part of their Federal Aviation Administration. "This is a set of rules that all pilots in the pilots club must follow, such as do not kill passengers, no bullying, no racism, no sexism and general mischief. Some are more aviation related such as do not dogfight unless both pilots have agreed, pilots should only fly if they understand basic radio chatter," he said. IFLY have even created their own "flight school", so GTAV pilots can learn navigation and radio skills - and earn their Commercial Pilots License within the group. To learn more about this intricate Crew and their network, get flight training, or even just book a flight with IFLY, you can go to the site for Air Jaffa, one of The Alliance's airlines.Originals Crew (ORIG) member GTA-Wise-Guy shows off his skills here with the Besra. Another flight club, the 800-plus deep Originals Crew (ORIG), stay showing off their right stuff. In the video above, GTA-Wise-Guy (who pulls quintuple duty also holding it down in the more land-lubbing 6 Star Street Racers, the Slammed Community and other Crews) takes the nimble Besra through its paces in a spectacular stunt montage. They've got an active YouTube channel that features videos from their six person offshoot dedicated to making sky-high video magic dubbed The Originals Crew Elite Division (OCED). And in addition to being experts in the aerial arts, the Originals are also formidable on land - ranking high in Vehicle Deathmatches (35th on PS3; 214th on XBL) and Non-Contact Races (217th on XBL).Ace pilot and ORIG Leader Original_Tonks takes control of the P-996 Lazer here and performs an array of death-defying maneuvers, navigating the narrow gaps of industrial girders and docking bays found in the Port of South Los Santos, La Puerta and the choppy turbines of the RON Alternates Wind Farm.Formed in March, The ULTRAS AIRFORCE (USAF) Crew regularly participate in road trips around the Los Santos streets in all-black Grangers, their official Crew vehicle. Being a flight-based Crew, USAF naturally take time to practice their skills in the sky, participating in formation and convoy flights in the P-996 Lazer jet. Coming up on their one year anniversary are the Dutch Jetset PS (DJET) Crew, 635 deep and quite successful. DJET are currently ranked 147th in Vehicle Deathmatches (66 Wins, 1,946 Kills), 220th in Races (10,866 Wins), 399th in Parachuting (570 Wins). 787th in Deathmatches (122 Wins, 1.09 K/D) and 874th in Tennis (519 Wins, 2,823 Points). Living up to the exclusiveness that the jet set portion of their name suggests, DJET are currently open only to fellow Dutchmen. The Xbox version of their Crew is even more successful, ranking 109th in Races (8,761 Wins), 175th in Team Deathmatches (1,287 Wins, 18,812 Kills), 188th in GTA Races (1,024 Wins), 323rd in Parachuting (402 Wins) and 336th in Deathmatches (114 Wins, 6,305 Kills). For interested pilots who’d like a boarding pass into DJET, be advised that you’ll need a Netherlands passport for this club, as these guys only admit fellow Dutchmen. CREW BATTLEThe most recent Crew Battles on the official Rockstar Twitch channel have included an all-racing competition as well as two MCs that were eager to prove their superiority on a large stage.actual_1411051879With a history of competition, the Malicious Intentt (MAIN) and Old School Punishers (HERO) Crews - both dedicated to all things racing - decided to take their friendly rivalry to the Rockstar Twitch stage. After HERO edged out MAIN in their own battle back in July, both Crews agreed to a rematch playing the same six Races (three created by each Crew). They agreed on lap count, non-contact, no traffic and the option to use custom vehicles. With that, we were off. Starting with MAIN Leader  PlamenVT's Bike Race "Curves Circuit", it was actually two HEROs (saintedgryphon1 and IRISHMAN311) that took the early lead. MAIN racing phenom hashstone89 wound up taking and holding onto the lead, followed by Crewmate ---Lio--- and HERO's timelesssalmon. Because HERO had such a big pack in the middle, MAIN was up by a mere point with five races to go. With HERO up 92-86 just one race to go - "Summit" by HERO Co-Commissioner (and Skype guest) Bekjenet - it was anyone's game. HERO's kdemarcus, who had been racing strong all afternoon, took an early lead while hashstone89 and timelesssalmon battled hard for much of the time for second. kdemarcus held first to win it followed by Bekjenet. HERO wound up winning (again) but it was an exceptional matchup all the way through. Additional thanks to MAIN Co-Commissioner _BobMendez who, despite having Internet struggles that made him unable to play, wound up joining us on Skype from his van as well as a Crewmate's house - dedication!actual_1411051979The Motorcycle Club Battle we hosted between the Warlocks MC (WFFW) Crew and the Outlaws National Org (OFFO) was slightly less cordial. From almost the moment the Live button went on, WFFW Leader JJKoshane and OFFO's HassaNostra engaged in some intense trash talking via Skype. But it takes more than a silver tongue and some sass to win a Crew vs Crew battle; the superior squad would be decided over a combination of six Races, Deathmatches and Captures. Helped by a first and second place finish by Southernn_Outlaw and CriticalAcclaimX in the Bike Race "Power Trip", the Warlocks took an early lead. Though OFFO's XI-DESPERADO-IX had the most amount of kills in the Deathmatch "Vespucci Shoreline", WFFW gelled a little more as a team and thus widening the gap a bit. The Outlaws stepped it up tremendously over the last couple of Jobs but it just wasn't enough and the Warlocks won 329-312.We're always on the lookout for competitive Crews to feature on Twitch, so if you're ready to throw down, hit us up at CrewChallenges@rockstargames.com and send us a link to your Crew page, let us know your preferred platform and any particular Crew you want to battle, plus why you think your Crew would kill it on the Rockstar stream.CREWS ON FILMWe’ll leave you with just a couple of really standout Crew-made videos that are definitely worth checking out.For those of who you live life a quarter mile at a time, you'll want to watch the Cemetery Rust Games (RUST) Crew's near-perfect reenactment of the final scene of the original The Fast and Furious, interspersed with actual scenes from the film. Excellent work, RUST.Taking inspiration from in-game loading screens, artist and The Damned Brotherhood (DAMN) member AdLib_WF made this slick video dedicated to her Crew. Not only is the original character art that they made for themselves exquisite, but the video also features the original theme music of fellow Crew Lieutenant TheIllaDopest. You can check more about this very active Crew on their official website and also see AdLib_WF's illustration work in our most recent fan pictorial here at the Newswire too. Previously:Crew Cut: A Crew that Hand-Delivers IRL License Plates, Plus F.C.-Themed Squads and MoreCrew Cut: Camera Clubs, Creator Collaborators and the Latest Crew VS Crew BattlesCrew Cut: Current Grassroots Events, Official Live Battle Scores and MoreMon, 06 Oct 2014 10:58:06 -0400
