After "that incident", I've been watching LifeInvader's stock drop. Some guides around the net say that after some catastrophic event or another, businesses will recover and the stocks will go back up (which seem to be the basis for the "insider trading" aspect of the game, if I'm using the right words. I know nothing about stocks, obviously.)
"LFI" stock dropped from $312 before the event, instantly to $170, and oer several in-game days it's steadily declined to 154.6. Since I'm not that far into the game, I would have to ask others, do you know where it bottoms out at? And when? I figured I might have to do some specific mission to make it go back up[, but what if I don't? What if I just free roam for 3 weeks till it hits 0? See then it wouldn't make any sense.
I don't know much about how stocks work, but I love the idea behind it. Sounds like easy money (in real life). Back in 2000 I bought one "penny stock" in XM Satellite Radio for my daughter as a "birth" present" (for her to keep as she got older, if the company ever went anywhere, which it apparently did!) How much ya think that's worth now? Or will I still need to save up for her college fund?
PS: Has anyone ever noticed the in-game internet's mouse cursor is giving the middle finger? Ha. Awesome.
Also, I've only had a quick glance at it, but for $25, I highly recommend pickin up the paperback GTAV Strategy Guide. It's got some good stuff in there that isn't available on the internet yet..
