    Alive Check

    Let me check.. can confirm, am alive. Also, I'm not Dmac but now that I'm here... I think of this place from time to time, I saw your account on Twitter again and decided to drop by to see what was what.

    I haven't been here in a while

    What exactly happened?

    Everything is indeed well! Hope it's the case with you too. Yeah, whether it be the official MTA server or the one I had for shits and giggles, it was honestly great fun.

    What exactly happened?

    Stopping by to say it's quite nice to see some old names hanging around still, even if the last post was a month ago. I have been registered on GTAForums for longer than I have been here, but back then I ended up choosing to participate more often here as things seemed a bit less overwhelming, we were more of a close-knit community. I still remember being a part of the Mafia group here in the forums and having great moments here and there on MTA. But times have changed indeed, for a varied number of reasons. When the forum was on its heyday we were all much younger than we are now (oh god all my shitposts), I think that is one of the main reasons the forum has lost its touch. People started growing up, having other priorities, barely having any time to play GTA, and some of them probably moved to more attractive communities as they had a lot more to discuss and a lot more people to interact with as TGTAP started emptying out. Regardless, though, it's nice to see a lot of you are still alive, I have talked semi-recently with Llama and Scott, Alvas has left a comment on my profile a few weeks ago, and it's very nice to see you still around, Rem!
  5. It looks like it has finally happened, as sad as it may be. http://ca.ign.com/articles/2016/01/12/grand-theft-auto-lead-developer-leaves-rockstar Leslie Benzies was the lead developer of GTA, it's a really great loss for the gaming community, at least in my perspective. And situations like these make me think that who knows if a lot of the GTA Online controversy (microtransactions, lacklustre content, absence of a long-awaited SP DLC, etc.) is caused by Take Two and not by Rockstar themselves. Maybe everyone's hating on the wrong company - even if there's still the possibility he fell out with the Housers for whatever reason. Although he may have left for other reasons, this fits way too well in a long dated rumor that said a lot of the GTA veterans left after V's development, because they didn't agree with the direction it was being taken. Seriously sad day for me, thanks for all the hours spent on GTA. And for me, this might just be the death of GTA, because I don't think anyone will be able to do it as well as him. I can only hope so.

    R.I.P. Yeardley Diamond

    Yesterday, once I knew about the news on GTAForums as soon as they were posted, I decided it was a good man's move to message Rockstar about it, given Yeardley had had the spotlight on him by Rockstar many, many times. I sent this to their Mouthoff: It's really not the most formal of things but I decided to raise some awareness. Rockstar seems to have noticed today, which is an amazing move by them. Rest in Peace, Yeardley.

    Temp Banned over n over

    It's beyond me why you keep coming here just to complain about being banned in GTAForums and then unbanned or whatever, Slamman. Do you really feel the need to vent your "desperation" in other forums that are completely unrelated to GTAF just because you see them as tyrants? Jesus, just let go, and if you like it here, good, just don't come complaining over something that repeats for reasons that deep inside you know why they happen. It is a sign of weakness complaining about other things in other forums, it's exactly like your mum not letting you buy your favourite toy and then you run to your uncle crying telling them that your mum didn't let you buy it like that makes a difference.

      I noticed, and I didn't apply because I noticed there was already a Brazillian portuguese translation, and in basic terms, it's about the same.

      I've also been good, just haven't been around too much; we should really get all the older members together again one day.

    A vent on the local media's portrayal of video games.

    Well, we all know that media, especially local media who aren't as bought as national media, all want to have the most shocking news and "studies" possible to impress people, when that's not always the reality. They just grab a load of "studies", put them together, and the conclusion always is - videogames are bad for people, videogames influence people, etc. when that's not really what is going on. For example, someone who kills another person "because of a game", can't be blamed for doing so because of the game. If he even had to kill someone to see how it was like, he definitely had to have other mental issues. It aggrivates me when the media blames videogames for everything, not taking into account other aspects of sociology and psychology, just the games themselves hurting people's minds. It's ridiculous. Even more annoying is when pseudo-psychologists come to TV shows and news programmes to talk about how bad videogames are for children, teenagers or the society in general, it's just fearmongering.

    The Rockstar Time

    It's not the most organised thing ever, but indeed. It's quite good to reflect on what we've been through until now, it's been a pretty harsh one and a half years, even more so when I am a PC player. Haha, doesn't matter you can still post it somewhere if you want jk hehe
