You can withdraw your chips for actual money what the f*ck are you talking about?

 

Also they didn't add real poker because the 12 year olds that play this game would never let you have a fun experience by not knowing what they are doing.

Exactly. It's enough for me when someone takes over 20 seconds to place a bet. Clearly evident you don't have a clue! Might as well go join the losers hanging around outside in the parking lots farming kills. Kinda had this problem in RDR2 with people raising like 10 cents on the blind..causing the entire table to call basically for no reason.

That's a huge crock of sh*t, the yachts and clubs died because they were 100% pure crap, so much unused potential, poorly done and forgettable.

 

I haven't had this much fun with an update since Import/Export. It is definitely game-changing to this game, forever.

 

Look, I sympathize with a lot of the complaints/complainers about a lot of things in this game but... if this update didn't satisfy you a little bit nothing will. You may as well stop playing.

You are getting so worked up over nothing. Acting like I insulted your dad or something. Calm down. I didn't say the update wasn't fun or whatever you think of it. Every update has their initial high before dropping off. It's just a natural progression. The only ones that see a sustained high are the ones with massive money making potential or glitches like Pacific Standard, Doomsday, IE etc. Every other thing just falls off.

I will say it. This update is not fun. Its the worst update other than arena wars. There is nothing fun about RNG BS. Its annoying and frustrating. Id much rather have specific requirements to unlock rewards instead of  this horrible RNG system.

This update is probably the best one to have happened for me. Perhaps because for once I had enough money to purchase the new toys and stay relevant with the content (which has never happened in the past years for me, I was a poor peasant). For example, it took me months and tons of grind and energy to even get a nightclub almost a year after the launch of the After Hour DLC so it was frequent for me to just lose interest and never get involved in the new content until way later, if I did. But now that my businesses are up to date and running, things are definitely easier and accessible for me. I don't feel left out.

 

The free penthouse promotion incredibly helped on that regard.

 

And it's funny because I hardly even play the casino games so that's not even what pleased me the most from the update lol.

 

Being able to fully customize a penthouse, collecting new arts and decoration and figuring out where to place them (and which one)... The fair varieties of quick fun casino work missions, the five story missions (which were also fun imo), the daily free lucky wheel rotation and all the potential prizes I could get, the new arcade games in the new penthouse with their own challenges and rewards, the store rotation... These all kept me quite active the last two weeks. I always log in to see if there's something new or more I can purchase.

 

The store rotation is actually a brilliant idea. I wonder if Rockstar will update the database with more decorations and clothings in the future because it would be extremely easy and accessible to lengthen the store's relevance that way.

 

Really the only thing that is a tad disappointing currently is the fact it only took two weeks for all the decoration and most clothings to be revealed. I expected even more options. There is no more surprise or whatever. I also wanted to have more items to place on my shelves, even counting the non-released figurines 70% of my shelves are still empty and will remain as such for a while. 😐 

 

Also the clothings were... a bit weird? There's surprisingly a fair amount of actual new clothing meshes (e.g. loafers, the shirts, the shorts, the dresses) but most of them come with obnoxious textures (yellow logos on loafers) and are large unisex potato sacks on female characters. Like these hawaiian tourist shirts? I get that the casino is some kind of a resort but that feels so much out of place with the whole "diamond fancy feel" while also being ugly to wear on my toon.

 

The dresses are amazing imo, though I wish we had more options than these open parachute dresses lol.

 

Still, I'm having fun and loving the new content as of two weeks later.

 

TL;DR: Me still güd, me fun, me happee

I agree with all of this, this DLC is without a doubt in my top 3, playing since launch on ps3.
One thing: There's more decorations then what we've been offered so far, we still have a bunch of paintings and small items to 'unlock'

There is still unreleased artwork though... apart from the promo stuff and collectibles.

This update is so hollow. At least the Nightclub DLC had business battles and even that was a wack update overall. 

 

We need content that provides fun over the long haul. Not just for the few days it's new.

I get that complaint, but I also don't think Rockstar makes that much money off of us players who are in for the long haul. Since they are a business that wants to generate a profit, it makes sense for them to add more one-time novelty stuff, which increases the chances of casual or new players spending real money by increasing the time they spend playing vs. people like us who play no matter what and have a lot of in-game money. Unsurprisingly we're getting more gameplay innovations out of fan-driven development projects.

I don't think that's a good excuse for a lack of proper long-term content though. If anything, content that keeps people coming back will keep player numbers higher and thus lead to more, continuous shark card sales. The casuals are important but if you lose them in a week or two, then what did you really accomplish? There's no guarantee they'll end up coming back. 

 

We just had a drought of nothing for the past 8months and before Arena Wars it was a long wait between that and After Hours; random car of the week dripfeed not withstanding. Countless friends of mine abandoned the game in levels that would've been unheard of when we had more quality updates in 2017 (Doomsday, Gunrunning, Smugglers Run), 2016 (Bikers, Finance & Felony, Cunning Stunts) and 2015 (Heists, Lowriders, Ill Gotten Gains, & Executives & Other Criminals). Similar sentiments have been shared on these forums, YouTube and Reddit as folks lament the decline in replay-ability and "stale" vibes GTA takes on in between these flash-in-the-pan glamour releases. Casuals bring in money but if there's less of them to go around, that's not very ideal. 

 

There have been spikes in players coming back in 2018 and this year when the content first drops on launch week/month but if everyone peaces out soon afterwards, it's very disappointing socially and honestly, it's a poor return on Rockstar's own investment. I don't see how that's a positive or strategically beneficial. 

 

The only logical reason for such a hollow release is to redirect development time and money to their newer projects like Red Dead Online and the upcoming GTA VI. While that's understandable from a business standpoint, it's definitely quite the short end of the stick for a player.

It's not as bad as I expected, but pretty close. We tried the games, we decorated the penthouse, now what.

The peyote looks nice, but it might get released in December.

3 card poker is in like every casino in the UK.  Can’t remember the last time I seen a standard poker table in a casino unless it’s a tournament against other players.  Stop chatting sh*t.

Never been to North America than. Where GTA takes place.

the casino's main purpose for me is to cheat blackjack and make a million bones in pocket change every now and then. I'm looking forward to more collectibles and those bandito time trials tbh.

 

but casinos never appealed to me that much anyway. I feel like people who got hyped and disappointed either didn't know what a casino is or didn't expect r* to rig or change it any. Most people I know either loved it or hated it based on their current stand on casinos in general

 

(take a shot every time i say "casino" haha)

Like myself, I think most were disappointed because there was no Texas Hold'em. Another disappointment was there wasn't any business attached with it. 

 

Short term fun aside, the only good thing about this update are some decent cars and 10 more parking spots. And of course the horse racing glitch, lol.

At this point though table game are probably the better option. R* broke the horse racing and it now unplayable once you start into the main event. They even changed some of the probabilities so they don't match up with the odd's. We don't have proof that R* changed the probabilities but it just feels like they did even to the point where it feels like the horse you pick is less likely to win. seems to have changed in this week sometime. That being said horse racing is instant play and keeps you on edge.

Oh I get it, but would like to play with others from time to time in the Casino. The same can be done with horse racing but most don't bother with the main event. It is what it is :/

Agatha optional missions actually have a lot of variety. I just hit 25/50, will go for 50 for sure though its starting to get repetitive.

 

Really impressed they managed to release more content on such an old game and make it feel playable. This is the dream of online games, new content that gets released long after its made, and this is done just right.

 

But no new music? This is a huge letdown, I felt really ripped off when the bogdan heist music played during those casino missions, and it's the same After Hours mix in Agathas Contact missions.

 

A new soundtrack would have made this a 9/10 for me.

 

 

Now enjoy this video

I'm enjoying it WAY more than I expected to. I was sure they wouldn't let us cash out, so that alone goes a long way. I'm happy with the gambling mechanic, the penthouse is way nicer than I expected as well: the personal poker/blackjack table, arcade games, spa, movie theater, bar... The whole DLC blew my expectations out of the water, and I feel I had somewhat high hopes. Really enjoying the freeroam work and the co-op missions too actually :/
