Nothing to do? I'm level 89 and I've only just fully upgraded all 10 cars in my garage. Only just finished robbing all the stores and I'm still missing paint jobs due to not having finished selected races. Let alone there's a achievement for participating in everything online has to offer and the achievement for reaching level 100 what exactly are you missing online?

Pretty excited to this DLC! Been saving some pennies for when they released it only to find out the first ones free! Happy days!

One update I really wish and feel is a must is to stop having my car impounded every time I'm gunned down with a 2star wanted level, it's ridiculous.

I think it's worth remembering it's still early days for GTA online. Content might feel scarce at the moment, though personally I still feel like I haven't seen half of what the city has to offer, but the number of buildings which you can't get into but are getting to be robbed - like casinos for example - is too big too ignore.

Playing with friends improves the experience ten fold, as usual. I think so long as they do heists right when they come along there will be plenty of fun to be had for a while yet.

Personally I will be heading on for some more mayhem, who's with me?

Yeah the game was only in development for 5 or so years haha. Not to say I'm going to stop playing it anytime soon, although I'm playing on picking up payday2 for cheap at the weekend.

No date as of yet Rick, but be sure to find a Christmas gift or two I suggest. Around that time is my guess.
It's all in the game...

I haven't even played the online that much and I already have all of that completed. While I haven't completed every mission, race and deathmatch, some new jobs wouldn't hurt.

Its fun but since they have geared it all about making money to spend money to make more money. Most of the missions are go here kill guys steal package or car/bike/plane the deliver taking out a couple of guys

The heists should shake things up but I all ready have a top their house with an 10 car garage what will I spend the multi million payouts? I hope they add actual houses and interior customising

I just want to change the colour of my hair. :( The 4 or 5 we have now are ok but i'd like to see White, Blue, Green and Red.

I got my $500,000 and brought Apt 101. around $300,000 i think. I also brought a superbike $9,000. The rest i'm going to give to my friend when he gets it to help him out. (Not sure how to give money though)

I'd like to see more activity's like pool. (There is a table in a bar) And house customizing. I'm looking forward to Heists i love them on single player. I don't think we will make millions though split up i'd say around $100,000-$500,000 on size of heist each player.

Whilst GTA Online seems to have lost it's early charm (mostly due to my expensive car being blown up every time it leaves the garage) I really hope that these content drops inject a little more life into the game. It seems to me that whilst all of these awesome things have been added over it's predecessor (such as apartments, personal vehicles and missions) the game seems to have lost the charm of GTA IV's multiplayer... Maybe it's just because it hasn't calmed down yet with it still being rather new and shiny, but there's no real sense of community, and everyone on the map is half the world away from each other. It still kinda feels like single player with a custom character, not to say that isn't good, but the game's charm seems to have been sacrificed for content, which tends to feel re-used constantly itself...

But, as I say, it will continue to be an awesome multiplayer experience, hopefully with other members of the community actually getting together and doing some crazy stuff that doesn't involve blowing up all your stuff every five minutes...

(To get back on topic, am I the only person that really wants to be able to use the rides at the pier? Also a purchasable cargobob would be pretty cool!) :mrgreen:

LOL no your not the only one that would like to see that i would too in fact i was suprised you couldn't at least use the rides that can be used in the offline game .
I would also like to see beach volleyball ,pool and being able to shoot hoops (one on one basketball) introduced they already have the mechanics for the last two from previous GTA games so would have thought adding them was easy enough .)
And some more internal environments more clubs bring back burger shot as an internal environment open up life invaders internal environment from GTA 5 single player
My main thought though is will there be any real GTA 5 DLC ? as in DLC similar to the lost and the damned and Gay tony thats playable offline has actual plotline and introduces new single player playable characters (maybe even female and asain characters they could risk it if the dlc follows the lead of the original GTA 5 and gives 3 characters to play as) .

As for the beach bum DLC its all very nice especially since free but mostly just seems to be more of whats already in the game rather than adding anything much thats truly new .
how about some long hair styles and the stuff already mentioned above ?
other than the clothing and vechile it seems it's just new editions of whats already in the game .
more death matches (which not many seem to be playing)
more races .
how about even some legal work after all it one of the options included in the character creation.
in fact how about adding the ability to play as the other side of the law where you have to fight crime rather than commit it .
that could also add an interesting element to team events .

I'm definately with you, loving online even though I have a few niggles with it. I think the detractors here, claiming there is little to do etc should give it some time regardless of how long it was in development. Red Dead Redemption's online mode grew and grew and GTA being their bigger IP will inevitably go from strength to strength. The upcoming DLC, from what a friend at R* North has told me is definately going to be worth the wait. :wink:

There are some little improvements to Online I'd like to see.

Firstly, in single player I can run, jump then 'bail' for comedic purposes, by tapping Green, then Blue then Red. I do this to see painful looking falls down stairs and to flop on unsuspecting sunbathers etc much to the amusement of my girlfriend. This doesn't work Online which is a real shame because I'm finding it hard to justify the time I'm spending playing it to her, if I fall half way down Mount Chilliad after 'tripping' on a rock she'll let me play for another hour!

I want to be able to run in my apartment, I run from console to toilet and back again all the time, my GTA apartment is bigger than my real home so it takes time getting around. So running as well as jump and use my fists, a punch up between mates in my apartment (ala Red Dead's lobby) would be hilarious.

Also paintball guns in the apartments would be cracking fun..... as would being able to arm wrestle, play darts, pool, poker etc. The apartments at the moment aren't as fun filled as they could or should be. It would also be great that as a host of a house party, I can eject someone if I think they are getting out of hand.... i.e. through a window.... I'd give them a parachute first!!

Also being drunk in Campaign and Online is not as good as GTA4 or RDR, I used to love having to control the walking to not fall over, was a little disappointed how steady footed your are when drunk. To that point I think it'd be great to be able to take a 6pack or bottle of whisky out with you so you can get drunk anywhere, i.e. somewhere where comedic drunken injury is very, very likely. Are you seeing a theme here?
