That feeling when you put your textures from minimum to max to take a print of a detail and realize those weird blurry blobs are actually signs with things written on them....

I've been trying to do all Brucie's car's and all other side stuff before continuing on to next mission. Means main missions are spread out and it plays out like a film for me in the sense that action peaks at the end of every session or at least the main missions feel grander after doing more mundane things like keeping friends happy. 

 

Last thing I did was unlocked Little Jacob's weapons delivery thing. Played bowling for about an hour with Michelle trying to get three strikes in a row achievement which I can only ever get two in a row. :( Gave up on that and then decided to get cars for Brucie. 

 

Looking forward to more adventures tonight.

I finally got the achievement for 3 strikes in a row. The way I'm playing through IV right now, I might actually go for 100%. I've only ever 100%ed San Andreas.

I've been playing through the story again, this time I turned the saturation down all the way, adjusted my TV as well, has a noir feel to it it's f*cking cool. LC looks more gritty, I love this game.

Played around with some cheats, did some most wanted missions using the FIB Buffalo that you can spawn, it looks badass. Some enemies were on a roof so instead of climbing the stairs I spawned the Annihilator and peppered them with machine gun fire. Then stunted off the roof with a Sanchez.

The cheats can add so much to the game, very handy having them stored in the phone, I wish you could do the same in V.

Good luck dude. My advice when you decide to do the flying rats to do them in small bursts. They'll drive you insane otherwise.:p

Or do them as soon as possible in the story. Why? Because I hate it when I leave the most tedious and/or the most difficult task as the last thing for 100%, because then I'll remember the game as a grindhouse. I like it when the most fun tasks are the last ones.

Glad I didn't leave New York Minute Hardcore as the last thing left to do in Max Payne 3. That sh*t drove me to insanity.

This.  The FINAL Story Mission is what gives me 100% in ALL GTA's.  Waiting until the end to do all Side Missions isn't fun.  I rather get all the boring and tedious sh*t done in the beginning or at the earliest possible, and save the best for the end.

 

Starter Saves for the win.  I've always said this, though.  Nobody wants to do them.  Only the people up for a real challenge...

Recently, I try to do the boring sh*t when it's the easiest, the least stressful. I.E. I'd do Jacob's drug deliveries immediately since they're close to the Broker safehouse, I'd do pigeons in each island as soon as I unlock decent weapons, I do collectibles in 3D era games once helicopters are unlocked.
I also don't like doing all missions except for the final one and then spend the rest of the lifetime doing side missions before finishing it, it doesn't make it far different. I prefer to mix it up a bit, i.e. couple story missions and then couple side missions. That way I don't feel a whole lot of boredom.

I like starter saves, but when I start a new game, I prefer to start from 0%.
Starter saves got pretty damn boring too. SA's and IV's are a bit fun, but they're lame in other games.

Yeah, without the 4 star wanted level (SA) and the 6 star wanted level (IV), the Starter Saves are too easy.  I still like doing them and KEEPING them as I do NOT like starting from 0%.  I do too many Saves to always have to redo it all from 0%.  I prefer about HALF the game complete before or after the first Story Mission in the game.

 

Makes the Story Missions a lot more enjoyable when you work your ass off in the beginning of the game upgrading the Character, getting the Weapons, etc, etc...

It's not that they're easy, it's just that they're incredibly boring. Easy tasks which are fun exist, but these do not fall under that category.

I don't start a lot of new games though.

Well, that's why I refuse to start over at 0%.  Who would want to do 100 Taxi Fares for instance, every single time?  Or 100 Collectibles, every single time.

 

I always start new games and play to 100%, so having a Save with the ENTIRE Story still available while HALF OF THE GAME is complete helps out a lot.  I find majority of Collectibles, Rampages, Stunt Jumps, and various Side Missions incredibly boring, hence why I like to get them all done and KEEP the Starter Save for future use.  I can't be bothered doing all the same, mundane, boring tasks over and over...

Cheers buddy. When doing tags in SA I had to do them in one go, twice max. It's the sort of mundane, stressful thing that I'm afraid if I stop I wont finish it haha! :D

When I done my 100% save I had to break them up like 10 at a time. I can't do stuff like that in one or two sittings.:D

I do all tags during the mission "Tagging Up Turf", since I already do 7 of these there, and I have infinite spraycan capacity during it. It takes about 40ish minutes to actually get it all done. It's not that hard at all.

Did a triathalon race in TBoGT, probably my favourite series of races in the Gta series, pity you can't access the turbo feature on cars outside of races. Later did some drug wars with dumb and dumber.

I did some work for Jimmy P and Phil Bell(ic). I stormed the abandoned factory to kill Fat Charlie and f*cked them up their asses with an AK-47 and some Molotovs.
