Gamers Are Dicks, And So Can You!

The past few weeks, we have discussed how dickishly evil a certain someone can get during a Mario Maker level making sesh. I mean, who would make these hard as shit levels in order to make you guys feel like you accomplished something in a Mario game? Who would stoop so low to make a level that dickish that friendships had to end? Oh wait, that was me!

SI_WiiU_SuperMarioMaker_v01

Trust me, I tried so hard to make easy peezy levels that everyone can enjoy, that people would cherish and enjoy and find time to go “Hey, you know what? That Rizz guy’s level is so good” but then I realized most of my friends are dicks and went with having 50 giant Thwomps in a row and at the end you better have brought that turtle shell you saw in the first part of the game because that Hammer Bro is your only way to the flag and you better hit that hole just right or else “OOOOH NOOOO!” (*play Mario death song*).

If you want to try it for yourself, there’s a list of my levels (and, also, Chachi’s levels on the right hand side).

But then my rocky road took a weird turn as I went to GTA Online and after many failed attempts at being nice and trying to do missions and just a leisurely drive (heck, I even tried to outrun a drive-by on a bicycle…dude was going 5 mph right beside me), there came a point in time I found someone shopping and…well…um…I’ll let you be the judge on my actions.

I believe it was the great Bill Shakespeare who once said, “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain”. I sure enough became a villain in the world of GTA Online because right after that, a $5k bounty was placed on my head. Not only that, after a helicopter got sniped out of the air taking out both the pilot and passenger, they hired mercs to take your boy with the fancy suit and bow tie out. Can you believe that?! Jeesh.

So, I got friends mad at me and the open world gang mad at me, what other group of people is there for me to give it to? OH I KNOW! Three words that get the most dicks: First. Person. Shooters.

Now, you know that old adage of being “campers” and “dicks” and “snipers” and all of the other terms that just seemed to be at people that, well, that deserve every minute of it. But…what if the last time you checked the standings and you were the last name on the losing team in Destiny’s Mayhem Clash (a quicker  version of their Clash, where all the cool-downs are sped up and there’s no wait time to come back into battle). I noticed a giant red blip on the map and, like any good gamer, I went over to check it out and just did this for the next minute and a half.

 

Notice the devious and maniacal laughter in the background.

Notice who lead the team at the end (SPOILER ALERT: It was me!).

It’s not me meaning to be a total dick to everyone I see, it’s more of a bored thing and I get one of those urges where being one to whomever is in my way. I find it comfortable knowing that someone thinks I’m just a total d-bag. It’s also a good way to earn easy XP and easy points and easy whatever the heck you want to get easy.

It’s also spontaneous, too, which is why I love it so. The people who camp out on a daily basis and try for the no-scope 360 headshot, the people who stalk you while trying to play GTA just so they can shoot you up, those guys can go to hell. Being a dick once in a while makes the world go ’round and

I guess I have just been hanging around Chachi way too damn long.

Grand Theft Auto Online: An Online Sandbox World to commit GTA Together.

NOTE: This is the first post brought to us by Matt Sorg, new writer for Insert Coin to Begin.

It seems Rockstar isn’t only expanding heavily on the Single Player portion of their new GTA by adding 3 characters to switch from, but also taking a huge leap for their online portion of the game as well.

 

Announced yesterday over on Gamespot, Grand Theft Auto V’s online portion will be called Grand Theft Auto Online. By the looks of the trailer, GTAO is looking to be very ambitions.

In GTAV you will have a character wheel to switch between the three main protagonist, but there will be a fourth character to choose from. This fourth character will be your very own custom Multiplayer character and will give you access to the GTA Online portion of the game. When you arrive in Los Santos with your character, you will be open to do many activities, from doing jobs for npc’s to make some cash, spending that cash to customize your character, buy a home or garage and buying and upgrading vehicles and weapons, to partaking in many different activities such as golfing, skydiving, and robbing a bank with some buddies. You can pretty much do whatever you want, just like a normal GTA game. But it adds the ability to travel the world inhabited with up to 15 friends or enemies controlled by other players. You can join together and complete missions, have a war between two teams in the streets, or wander the city solo, sometimes spectating the havoc other’s are creating thou the TV or looking down at the streets from an apartment as cops chase a group of friends that just robbed a bank.

Not only can you free roam like a normal GTA game, you can also join in classic game modes such as Deathmatch or some other objective based game-types like Cops n’ Crooks similar from GTAIV’s Multiplayer. Even more interesting, you can customize and make your own races, setup a Deathmatch arena or put together your own missions, similar to the map editing in games like the Halo series.

Another part that seems interesting to me is that there will constantly be new content being added for you to discover, even hinting at raising the boundaries of Los Santos and allowing you to travel further, possible to allow travel to San Fierro or Las Venturas, hopefully even hopping on plan to fly to Vice City or Liberty City(a man can dream).

This actually reminds me of when GTA: San Andreas came out. Some modders released a multiplayer mod for the game to allow you to join a server and play with other people(amazingly, it’s still being updated). It was interesting but San Andreas always felt quite empty with the only life being the other players. In GTA IV they added a free roam mode which I think is very similar to the mod, except not quite as empty with pedestrians wandering the world like normal. There no real objective tho but some people tend to make up their own objectives, like the fine Lets Players over at Rooster Teeth here.

 

It’s important to note that GTA Online will not be available at the Sept. 17th launch of GTAV. They are currently planning on releasing Online on Oct. 1st with some other features such as the mission creator being released sometime later.

Are you excited to play a true GTA open world multiplayer experience with GTA Online? Have any stories about previous GTA Multiplayer experience? Let us know in the comments.
