So they went with an interpretation of Catalina Islands, but as drug runner paradise mix with a military base or something....(I was wrong, had surely thought we'd get something more significant and expansive).  I guess this is cool, but I must say that the absence of Benzies and Hauser is unmistakable. Like, what does this have to do with anything? Is the new heist take "follow the yellow line" solo? Really? What is this even satirizing? How is this GTAO world building? I'm sure I'm in the minority, but not exactly blown away by this. 

Are we all holding our breath for something(s) more in depth on next gen?

 

Genuinely curious. 

Same, im not blown away by it. Wish we got liberty city instead but anything is welcomed.

I think it’s deeper than satirizing at this point. This heist and island might portray the reality to some extent without using satire as a mean for euphemism. I personally think drug-related issues are still relevant in the American society nowadays, and it seems that, from the information we have now, the island nods to the history of some drug operations in Latin America decades ago. 
 

I recall R* publicly expressing that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find humour and satire in the American society. I think it makes sense because many things are becoming blatantly obvious, and certain previous satire can be deem as offensive nowadays. So instead of satire, it’s easier to directly portray something.

I think is more due to them afraid of not being "PC". Everything is offensive or racist these days.

Not only that, its just that theres nothing to satire anymore, all everyone likes doing is sit on their phone, get mad about politics, order from amazon, and watch netflix or something, theres no public square anymore like there was in 2008 with IV, its just gone, and it sucks

 

thats why they could do it with that game, now everything is the same sh*t but a different color, crazy how much sh*t has changed

 

i mean, they can do it, but with what, V barely got away with it and it felt forced throughout the whole game, even 2012 was like a different world, holy f*ck

 

i mean, they could parody that in of itself, but i feel like it would be sh*tty

 

playing IV brings me back, like it has stuff in it that i would laugh at but i see people actually getting offended at it today, when back then it was just innocent

 

i blame the internet

GTA Online has been doing just fine without Benzies since like 2014 though. And the Housers never really touched GTA Online, even Benzies himself in his lawsuit complained they didn't care. So none of the writing you see or like/don't like has to do with either Benzies or the Housers.

 

Also, we do have a GTA VI speculation topic if you wanna check out what people are thinking or do it there yourself ;)

If they were going to do that, then you'd just be a CIA operative hire and they'd have an "Island" of Mena, Arksnasa.
Americans buys drugs and America makes a lot of money off imprisoning users and low level dealers hard dee har har.
  
Satire can be sophisticated, but again, I don't see Rockstar doing that. And that quote is attributed directly to the Hauser that recently left. At this point it's just fighting off competitors and doing as little to innovate. Maybe I'll turn out to be wrong, but if I have to buy a GD Submarine to travel to the expansion I will happily uninstall a series I have happily loved.

i dont think they will they made fun of pc stuff when gay tony said his name lazlow said "i dont think you can say that anymore its not pc the internet will go crazy" and tony didnt care so im hoping they dont care about being pc or they will ruin their own game which they arent strangers too but not having the type of dark humour they have had for gta will not be very good

Being able to do the robbery alone is definitely one of the best things that Rockstar has confirmed, I thought that in the Diamond Casino heist you could do it alone and for that we had to give a part to the gunman and the driver, but it turns out that they don't do sh*t and the only one that really helps you in the robbery is the hacker. 

And the saddest part of this DLC is that the Casino Heist COULD HAVE BEEN EXECUTED BY JUST ONE PERSON. Doing it stealth mode.

 

It's no other different from doing the more advanced stealth missions Lester and Madrazzo give you.  The best analogy is that stealth Humane Labs setup where you need to steal the HL vans from the lab at night. Every time I've done that heist (with trusted ppl) ONE and only ONE person -- aka the STEALTHIEST team member -- did all the killing of NPCs in that mission. With a simple pistol and silencer. The rest of us just hid behind that wall at the gate entrance and waited (where the NPC truck typically drives out the gate). 

 

Once all the NPCs were dead (took less than 10 min on average), we all just ran to the collection point and collected the van. Mission accomplished with zero player deaths or wasted ammo.

 

There are other obvious ones like the photo shot you have to do for Pacific. You DON'T NEED FOUR PPL to complete this setup. Especially since everybody now knows the van routes and where they predictably spawn in the mission. 🙄

 

I'll never understand why R* thought necessary to have not one but TWO freaking DRIVERS?? with the navs just to take some god damned pics. Since the nav can drive AND take the damned pics at the same time i.e what 99.999% of players to date do if they're lucky to get the nav role on that stupid mission.  

 

WTH R* thought it was necessary to force FOUR players to do these run of the mill, predictable, and completely linear setup missions is completely beyond me. Complete and unnecessary waste of time spent in heist lobbies to do what ONE person could've accomplished. But at least they got better by the Doomsday and Arcade/Casino heists.

yea ive done the humane labs mission by myself many times because i try to do it with the randoms and they keep messing up so then i just tell them all to stay in the truck and let me do it thats why im very excited for this solo heist and i do agree that we should be able to do the casino heist solo that would really fun and i prefer playing that type of stuff by myself anyway so i can do it how fast i want and keep it stealthy

I would say I'm pretty excited to see what this update has to offer. I just really hope there is new clothing, and possibly new hairstyles with this update. It'd be nice to see brand new clothing items and not recycled clothes with weird patterns on them. Idk, one can only hope.

Oh god please, you lose like a full minute in the casino vault just to open the doors. Such a waste of time and money.
