Feedbackula - GTA Online Server Sacrilege
- Oct 4, 2013
With GTA Online having a slightly bumpy start, a large portion of our community is pretty frustrated. Rather unwisely, Johnny steps in to see if he can help out a bit.
Hehe....I remember seeing several of these comments when the story came out. Funny to see them again here.
Massive Online Game? That is not true. 16 player lobby, then every match is another lobby. Thats not MMO level. Thats less than matches in COD. R* should be embarrassed.
FORGET ONLINE GAMEPLAY FIRST MAKE PC GAMEPLAY A REALITY .
TO ROCKSTAR DEVELOPERS , THIS IS PRECISELY THE REASON GTA LOST TO TES ON THE GAMESPOT BE SERIES OF THE DECADE BATTLE.ROCKSTAR MAY HAVE SOLD WAY MORE COPIES THAN TES BUT ATLEAST TES DID NOT BACKSTAB ITS PC USERS BY LAUNCHING ALL THREE FORMS OF THE GAME I AM TALKING ABOUT ESPECIALLY SKYRIM WITH PC PS3 AND XBOX 360 VERSIONS ALL LAUNCHED AT THE SAME TIME.
AND WHEN U UPSET PC GAMERS IT WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE NUMBER OF VOTES ONE GETS IN POLLS ONLINE , USING A PC . ITS A GOOD THING THE POLL WAS DONE BEFORE THE LAUNCH AS THE ANGER AND FRUSTRATION OF NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY GTA V ON PC WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN WAY LESSER VOTES FOR GTA FRANCHISE.
I agree with johnny on this one. I was a bit annoyed at first but with the amount of people that bought this game it shouldn't really be surprising. What aggravated me more was the stupid tutorial that they made you do that basically told you how to play regular GTA 5 over again. I didn't really see the point in it, but yeah johnny's spot on with this one.
I'm getting a bit sick of all these GTA V articles in gamespot, I know it's a stupendous game and of course it's going to win Gamespot's GOTY award judging from the amount of publicity it's receiving from this site, I even agree with Dany's GTA V The Point, but I don't know, ever since Gamespot did that Greatest Game Series of The Decade contest, and they didn't care to show the winner or give it proper recognition (it al seemed to be because GTA didn't win), I been loosing little by litle the respect I've always had for Gamespot, that ,and because of some recent reviews in which I strongly disagree ( years ago I always thought reviews where spot on)
What happened to that contest Gamespot?, I know I didn't came to the site the day the Winner was announced but I did came like 2 days after, and there was nothing about the winner or the contest on the site just a lot of GTA articles.
Hope they do sort out the issues as they did with RDR & that was briliant. Thankfully thus far the only issues I've experienced is online freezing and non connection. However you do have to bare in mind that MP3 had a ton of issues that just got worse the more people played, R* never really did resolve those issues ......
stopped trying to play online after losing my characters twice... what a jugular waste of time spent on loading, downloading, and more loading.
selling off my copy once i'm done with single player. luckily beyond 2 souls is on the way...
I'm pretty surprised that a week later and there are still major issues with the online. I'm not sure how Rockstar can be so caught off guard with the online and how many people wanted to get on it. They probably would have been better off waiting an extra week and doing their own stress tests. When other big MP games come out it's expected to have some big problems, but Rockstar knew for 2 weeks how many people have copies of their game and should have expected that if that many people bought the game in the first day, there would be close to that number that would want to play online the first day they could.
Well, as much as I look forward to GTA V hitting PC, it looks like it won't overtake UT2004 (GOG) nor Left 4 Dead 2 (Steam) as my fav online multiplayer game.
Most of the people complaining and cursing about the way the company makes things and then implements those things have never owned their own company, and have probably never been a creator in the marketplace, only a consumer.
Things don't always work perfectly at first, but Rockstar made a great game, and kudos to them for the work they're doing to correct issues their customers have.
LMAO at the whinners - who remembers server crashing and 90 minute + queues to play WoW an actual MMO? Seems most these people dont have a clue and are too stupid to work out there would be issues. Shame on Rockstar for not getting 25 million people to all sign in at one time to test their servers..........................
With all the deleting going on, I'll just give this another couple weeks before I even try. Besides, I'd like to get 100% completion in single player before then anyway.
Kinda agree on both sides here :) i mean patience is the way yeah :) but on the other hand rockstar did have alot of time to get things sorted so i guess i'm on the fence on this one :) in a months time we will all pretty much just be getting on with it :)
Johnneh - I think you should change the title of your show from Feedbackula to Voice-of-reason...ackula. As always, you're the only one with the right perspective on these issues.
Oh British accent... what is a Con Ecitivity? I thought you said con activity, and I was like wha? ...but then no, it was just your attempt at saying connectivity, lol
Speaking of server issues, The Beta for BF4 on 360 is not working properly. None of the servers are showing how many are playing. At least as of Saturday it was like that.
Hilarious voiceovers! Some of the best of recent episodes. <3
I do understand it when people are frustrated though. It's sad that apparently, even being able to anticipate this happening, isn't enough to stop it. I'm sure Rockstar did everything they could, but not everyone is going to acknowledge that with these kinds of problems. It's a real shame. I suppose cloud technology still has a long way to go...
Rank 13, character was deleted, cloud servers could spell the death of online gaming i they don't get it right.
I'm lvl 19 on Xbox 360. Have played a ton with random connection issues here and there. If you are having trouble switching in to online from single player don't use the wheel. Press start and go to the online tab. Go to play gta online and select closed friends server. It's will put you in your own private server and you can get into lobbies and end up in another occupied server
@kargion yeah but cod maps no where as big as the gta 5 map.
@senorpianist I LOVE CAPSLOCK
@fallin75 Agreed. I think they really need to stop making videos and articles for GTA 5 now. I think everything that could have been said about the game has just about been said.
@Kurushio think of it as open beta, in this way R* will know what the issues are in order to address them. The more interesting point is are they committed to do so ........... they never did resolve the MP3 MP issues
@nate1222 not the same thing but having played the multiplayer i can honestly say i would rather play that than the sp. the things you can do in mp are amazing
@ggregd They probably thought that *was* a New Zealand accent, doh! :P
@93ChevyNut Um okay, and how is this commentary? This is just you telling everyone what you plan to do. I'm going to start responding to these videos with, "Had a cucumber salad for lunch. Thinking the best thing to have for dinner would be some pasta and a loaf of garlic bread."
@peteyboi29 Completely agree with you. I just think if you're this angry with the developer then why continue to play? The best thing you could do is STOP reading/buzzing about the game, STOP playing the game, and STOP complaining. What angers me more than actual, viable complaints are people you know are fan-boys but are literally whining like little children because someone took their bottle away. Once the online is fixed they will wipe their eyes, snuffle a few times, and start playing incessantly again.
@jackmojo1 Feedbackula is trash.
@Warsilver Seriously. WE'RE ALL TIRED OF THE BRITISH ACCENT. STOP BEING A POSER JOHNNY! WE CAN BARELY UNDERSTAND FEEDBACKULA AS IT IS!
@TirOrah Man when people say the "cloud" they sound so ridiculous.
It's the internet. Servers. Online data. "Cloud".... somebody kill me. Just blast my face off.
@DeanoFantasy Happened to me too level 10
@DeanoFantasy I don't get why they can't just allow you to save a small file to your ps3 that saves what your character is like/leveled up to. A very small data file could definitely keep track of things such as rank, money, etc. I call BS.
@akarui2 @93ChevyNut WTH is your problem? Scroll through any GS forum and you'll see dozens of statements like this. Do you comment on everyone who does this? Is the forum only good for vicious attacks? My statement was meant to be an alternative viewpoint to everyone that's raging hard over the GTA Online issues. Does that help? Does that make my statement valid in your eyes Mr. judge, jury, and executioner? Grow up and find someone else to belittle, tough guy. I hope you find the satisfaction you're looking for.
@maztatrev @Warsilver I can't understand the point to Feedbackula, honestly. Just a hate mongering weekly feature. It makes most fans resent coming to gamespot and in the end will be a push to move toward a different, less confrontational gaming site.
Sorry, I can't eat this, this is troll food.
@Blasterman4EVER Okay...thanks for the nice comment? From what I've heard, there are problems with saving people's data (among other things ofc) and so "cloud" seemed like a logical term to use instead of the broader "internet".
Or do you just dislike the term? In that case feel free to disregard my reply, I guess...
@Blasterman4EVER They do, that is how cloud storage works. The file is stored on your device and synced with the online service.
