    I played on 360 for a month or two after the game was initially released and completed all the achievements. I need to play again at some point to get the heist achievements from the DLC, and I'm wondering if I stand to make that easier by playing during this weekend event?

    The world is full of complete morons.

    How do I know? Because I've played GTA V online with randoms.
    Category 3D SFA Referee - PSIA Freestyle Ski Coach with M.A in Politics. Random huh?

    Enjoying these 2x RP events. I got kind of burnt out on how slow it was to level up. In the last week I've gone up 12 levels no problem.

    Too bad they got wise and got rid of escaping the police on the last week's RP bonus. Went from 60-78 with that one :P

    Typical that they start to bring out these events just after I finished the online achievements.
    Sleep is so overrated.

    I just recently jump back into GTA V on the 360 for the heists but it's pretty bad out there. The heists themselves are fun but GTA Online breeds a very specific (young and stupid) type of player. It pretty tough to work with randoms even when they don't quit on you.

    If the X1 version ever finishes downloading for me I'll be able to play. after 16 its at 50% which is just absurd. Decided to hook it straight into the router and it seems to be motoring finally.

    Lol, playing with randoms isn't that scary. Force them to whip out mics and if they aren't good enough (keep dying) + no mic. Then as the host leave and start again inviting the everyone from the last heist but that player. T'is simple and soon enough you'll meet that special group of gta players who are soo good that you wouldn't even have to play while the mission is completed.

    Don't be surprised if they switch the bonus over to Pacific Standard next week either.
