I mean, not the radio station itself, which is pretty good actually, but the fact there is FINALLY something new in Singleplayer? Don't you think it is a step forward? I know the whole Doomsday Update was supposed to be released for Singleplayer (http://comicbook.com...e-player-dlc-v/), but at least they BEGAN TO THINK about releasing something for SP!

The only reasons it's in single player is because it can't be monetised and they probably can't make radio stations exclusive to online. A thing that kind of irks me is that the ads are all for online vehicles like the yosemite or the new comet.

My opinion only and maybe it's to do with my age. But I think the new station is absolute rubbish! All the songs are awful. And to make things worse it's the default station for all the new heist setups etc.

I'm ecstatic to see Rockstar gave us DLC for Single player after 3 years even if it wasn't a major story mode expansion. I thought Story mode would never see new content again after 2015.

For the radio content itself? I don't know why they spent money licensing these tracks when there are a lot of music styles still yet to be covered in this soundtrack. The music here feels like FlyLo 2.0.

I haven't heard it yet because I have yet to download the update. I need to see if the newest version of ScripthookV has been released yet before I do.

 

What kind of music is it?

Its fine from what I heard but they should have added something more unique. Synthwave or Metal would have been a better choice as they both feel very different and unique compared to the other radios in the game.

Very true. How many radios are there in GTAV that have this experimental rap and grime sound?

FlyLo

The Lab

Some sections of Worldwide

And now we have this one. It kind of seems like they could've all been combined together into a singular station, with varying sectional mixes to accommodate the different DJs. It would've saved redundancy. And mouse wheels.  :lol:

I feel like "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You" is a message to the longtime fans of this series.

To get griefed, stare at loading screens for hours or even "work"? No thanks.

 

 


 

then play Online alone ? 

 

/problem solved

 

 

 

And that's a gross exaggeration like always. I tested hundreds of mmorpgs and online games in the last 15 years. Gta : online is far from being the best to prevent griefing but it's also not the worst at all. 

 

Can other players prevent you to actually progress in the game ? The answer is no. You can easily find a group online that hold friendly sessions in permanence , kicking random players who just join to mess around. There are many ways to mitigate and even avoid completely griefers so it's a non-issue in itself , even though i always advocate to give more connection options to the players. ( Solo sessions shouldn't be that limited. )

 

You can do most of the Online Missions alone while the story missions ( Like Heists or Lamar story missions ) are locked to teams. none of them are required to advance in GTA : online. You could race all the time and only make money/RP  whiling racing alone if you'd want.

 

The loading screen problem is something they could have fixed easily by adding a manual button to disconnect. It occurs when your client fails to connect to a session and since it's a peer to peer game with people from all around the world , sometimes it does a very bad job at choosing the right session to connect to.

 

When i load for more than 15 seconds , i just activate my own disconnect button which alt my connection to GTAV for about 8 seconds. then when it comes back , the game loads instantly in my own session instead of staying on the infinite loading screen forever or until it disconnects itself from the unreachable peer.

 

There's absolutely no reasons to miss on such a fantastic game if you already own GTAV and loved the story line. Hey they even added Old school Hiphop on Blonded ! I'm having San andreas flash backs here.

Jetpack is completely over-rated. I would have prefered a proper jetman suit , at least the physics would have been a lot more fun to control instead of a boring glorified mini-chopper.

I sincerely think the radio station is in SP simply because they didnt have the tools to directly block it from SP without having to touch old code, rework a few things or simply because of licences infringements (after all, GTAV and Online is just one game/executable). I might (and hope) to be wrong though.

I don't like it as much as I liked The Lab but new content for SP is always welcomed.

This radio station is a waste of time and money. They should gather their teams to improve the confusing/weak AI and fix the numerous bugs left in the game. Honestly, that something new in single player is a small step forward. Let's face it ... It's been a couple of years and they haven't really cared about SP. But in a way, I believe that the majority of players won't care much, after the story is complete.

 

Hey they even added Old school Hiphop on Blonded ! I'm having San andreas flash backs here.

San Andreas took place in 1992. Most of the tracks on Blonded were released one to two decades after the early 1990's. Why have they added the Marvin Gay and Curtis Mayfield songs there? They could have added them on The Lowdown as it would have been more appropriate. To me, Radio Los Santos in GTA San Andreas and West Coast Classics in GTA V are a pleasurable listening experience of superior quality.

Last time I tried actually playing the game it was a huge downgrade from what I was used to. I don't like depending on others to enjoy the game and that is why Online can't scratch the itch of playing GTA.

 

And why exactly do I have to do all the things you said when this game should have been fixed 4 years ago? Why don't they add AI bots to make players like my self enjoy the game solo? Raise the payouts and make the game not feel like work, fix the loading screens, make it solo friendly and I would give it another go. Until then they can shove the mode up their ass. The fact you have to keep kicking players and not "play the game the way its meant to be played" makes GTAO a bad replacement for the single player.

It's terrible. I think the most requested genre I saw personally was metal, but they added another sh*tty modern rap station with a couple good 70s tracks sprinkled in.

Old school southern hip hop, the precursor to all the trap bs we have nowadays.

 

Dead Presidents from Jay-Z definitely gives me some San Andreas flash backs from that radio station "Playback FM"

I haven't downloaded the update yet, but I see that Alex just updated ScripthookV. So I assume that if I apply the update to the game, will this radio station just automatically be in my game?

This. It was playing "So In Love" by Curtis Mayfield when I first listened to it, and at first I thought they added some kind of 70s station. Nope, it turned into sh*t after that. Would it have killed them to just come up with a new genre rather than making another station that sounds like FlyLo FM and The Lab? Metal, 90s and early 00s alternative (like the cut PMR station was going to feature), or even if they added something random like Korean pop music I wouldn't complain because at least they would have tried doing something new that doesn't sound like two other radio stations already in the game.

Okay, I'm way late to the party, but I only just found out about this recently (haven't exactly been keeping up with GTA news), and promptly downloaded the update. First of all, it's really cool getting new content for single player. Yeah, there's so much more they could've added, but I'll take what I can get.

 

As for the station itself? I've listened to it a little bit, and so far, meh. Nothing's really stood out for me aside from the classic soul tracks, and it just feels redundant. It basically feels like another Flylo or The Lab, and most of these songs could have just been added to those stations easily. And I really rather would have seen something different, like a proper metal station, or maybe even another station that plays only ambient stuff (think basically any artist featured in the Hotline Miami soundtracks). But even with all that said, I feel there's always room for more music in GTA V. (I remember back in 2013 feeling that the radio stations were way too repetitive... well, they certainly fixed that problem, haha.)

 

And while I have yet to actually hear it in-game, the fact that it includes "Dead Presidents II" nets it like a million brownie points from me. That's my favorite Jay-Z song, which of course means it's one of my favorite songs by any rapper, and it's so great having it in a game. It would have fit IV way better, but I'm so happy to have it in a game like this nonetheless.

Meh, they could add new songs to existing radio stations.

if the new radio station was something extraordinary, they wouldn't put it on singleplayer.
