GTA Online Players Are Discussing Their Biggest In-Game Wastes of Money – Screen Rant

Published

on

One Reddit user recently asked GTA Online players to share their most ridiculous wastes of in-game money, and the resulting list is very long.
Grand Theft Auto Online continues to be a popular game amongst players on all platforms since its release in 2013, and some are now reflecting on their biggest wastes of in-game money. The game’s longevity in the public eye continues well into the present, having set records in GTA Online player count as recently as 2020.
GTA Online is the online counterpart to Grand Theft Auto V, the former of which allows players to create fictional characters and run around the fictional city of Los Santos, causing chaos and hunting down other players. Each new heist and update added gives players regular new content – and money is often at the center of all of GTA Online’s content. Sometimes the updates include new businesses for financial opportunities, or new missions for players to complete for cash. Some players take these missions and finish them right away, reaping the benefits and making a lot of money in-game. Other players prefer to race their cars and come in first to win the big prize. There is even a casino where players can go and spend money to try to win big prizes, like a new car or the jackpot. The opportunities to make money in GTA Online are endless, so it’s no surprise that people have spent money on seemingly pointless items.

User thunderdome33 took to Reddit to ask everyone what their biggest waste of money was in the online multiplayer game. OP shared a picture of The Kraken Avisa, which is an underwater vehicle that allows players to go through the ocean to see the sights. They cited this as their biggest waste of money and said they only used it once and haven’t touched it since. The Avisa runs players a whopping $1,545,000 in-game and seemingly doesn’t deserve the price tag it’s given. Without any defense system, players riding in the Avisa can be a sitting duck for other players. Other subaquatic vehicles tend to go faster and actually have weapons, making them more useful than the Avisa.
Another honorable mention (by a few fellow Reddit users) was the Stromberg, which is a submersible sportscar. The price tag on the Stromberg is a whopping $3,185,350 and players noted that it just isn’t that useful in the long run. The Stromberg seems like it could be good for GTA Online PVP battles like the Vehicle Vendetta, but players said it was not worth the money they spent. Another runner-up in Reddit post was the Karin Technical Custom. This costs about $142,500 and looks like it might be worth the price tag, but players mentioned that it leaves the gunner open to be attacked without any defense. Players mentioned that it also spawns a long distance away from their character, which can be fatal in a pinch. There were some other great mentions like the yacht and the Luxor Deluxe – also known as the 10-million-dollar jet – but overall the Avisa was the winner of the discussion.
The Grand Theft Auto V online component continues to draw people back in with the new GTA Online updates and fun challenges. Each new update has new vehicles, shops, and businesses players can spend their money on – meaning there are even more opportunities for wasteful spending, deliberate or not.

Blizzard's new IP: Modern meets fantasy online survival game – TweakTown

Published

on

Blizzard’s next big IP might be an interesting take on a Kid in King Arthur’s Court and The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
Today Blizzard confirmed it is working on an ambitious new IP. The unnamed project is a survival game that merges modern and fantasy together, as per details gleaned from a brief concept art glimpse. Job listings also confirm the new IP will be an online-based adventure which is Blizzard’s usual fare.
“Blizzard is embarking on our next quest. We are going on a journey to a whole new universe, home to a brand-new survival game for PC and console. A place full of heroes we have yet to meet, stories yet to be told, and adventures yet to be lived. A vast realm of possibility, waiting to be explored,” reads a job posting.
We’ve known about Blizzard’s new IPs for a long time. The company has been incubating this new IP and another unannounced multiplayer shooter for a while, and Blizzard is also trying to create a shared games engine to power its future titles.
Alan Adham discussed the new incubation pipeline back in August 2021:
“We’re tight-lipped about it, but our new game pipeline has been in development for many years and it’s greater than it’s ever been across our core franchises and mobile, new IP and new genres. I’m looking forward to our teams launching their already announced new games in the not-too-distant future and in due course announcing a few new ones that you’ve yet to hear about,” Adham said.
So what is Blizzard working on? Here’s a selection:
Derek Strickland
Derek joined the TweakTown team in 2015 and has since reviewed and played 1000s of hours of new games. Derek is absorbed with the intersection of technology and gaming, and is always looking forward to new advancements. With over six years in games journalism under his belt, Derek aims to further engage the gaming sector while taking a peek under the tech that powers it. He hopes to one day explore the stars in No Man’s Sky with the magic of VR.

Ole Miss vs. Florida: How to watch online, live stream info, game time, TV channel – CBS Sports

Covering the impact of coronavirus on the sports world
Florida @ Ole Miss
Current Records: Florida 12-6; Ole Miss 9-9
The Ole Miss Rebels and the Florida Gators are set to square off in an SEC matchup at 7 p.m. ET Jan. 24 at The Pavilion at Ole Miss. Florida should still be feeling good after a win, while the Rebels will be looking to get back in the win column.
Ole Miss ended up a good deal behind the Mississippi State Bulldogs when they played this past Saturday, losing 78-60. Ole Miss’ defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of center Nysier Brooks, who had 12 points, and forward Jaemyn Brakefield, who had 13 points. Brakefield’s performance made up for a slower contest against the Missouri Tigers last Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Florida didn’t have too much trouble with the Vanderbilt Commodores at home this past Saturday as they won 61-42.
Ole Miss is expected to lose this next one by 5.5. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past four games.
The Rebels came up short against the Gators when the two teams previously met in January of last year, falling 72-63. Maybe Ole Miss will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.

The Gators are a solid 5.5-point favorite against the Rebels, according to the latest college basketball odds.
The oddsmakers had a good feel for the line for this one, as the game opened with the Gators as a 6-point favorite.
Over/Under: -112

This PS5-ready 1TB SSD is just $130 – The Verge

Published

Filed under:
A more affordable way to add speedy storage to your console or a compatible PC
If you buy something from a Verge link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.
Only the best deals on Verge-approved gadgets get the Verge Deals stamp of approval, so if you’re looking for a deal on your next gadget or gift from major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and more, this is the place to be.
Not all M.2 SSDs are PS5-compatible. They need to be PCIe 4.0-ready and boast a 5,500MB/s read speed (though some slower drives may work, according to our testing), and Adata’s XPG Gammix S70 Blade meets those requirements. The reason why I’m telling you about this one, in particular, is that it’s selling for just $129.99 at Best Buy and Amazon, a $30 price cut. At that price, it’s one of the fastest yet most affordable ways to add storage to your PS5. Similar models from brands like Samsung often sell for about $50 more than this.
Whether you plan to use it inside of a PC that has a PCIe 4.0-ready motherboard (it’s backward compatible with PCIe 3.0, just a slower speeds) or a PS5, it’ll be ready to install the moment you open the box. Unlike some M.2 SSDs, this one includes a heatsink with purchase. Per Sony’s recommendations to keep it within safe operating temperatures in your PS5, you’ll need to secure it before installation. Though, some customer reviews for this SSD offer a warning that the quality of the included heatsink isn’t top-tier. So, you may want to offset some possible disappointment with an affordable alternative. Here’s this low-profile heatsink from Micro Connectors that’ll work, selling for just $10.99 at Amazon.

Adata’s Gammix S70 Blade offers up to 7,400MB/s and 6,800MB/s of sequential read and write speeds in PCIe 4.0 machines, or up to 3,400MB/s read and 3,000MB/s write in PCIe 3.0 rigs. It’s compatible with the PS5.
If you’re ready to pull the trigger on a Nintendo Switch (I’m envious of all the great games you get to play for the first time), Woot is offering a $20 off perk for Amazon Prime subscribers. Head to this page, and when you add it to the cart, make sure to click the “Login with Amazon” in order to get in on this deal. It’s tough to beat getting a brand-new Switch for less than the usual cost; Nintendo’s console almost never sees any kind of discount.
While you’re at it, consider picking up a microSD card that’ll give you enough space to store several games (the Switch has 32GB of internal memory, which is enough for two to three games, depending on their file size). This SanDisk model with 256GB of storage for $27.14 at Amazon should suit most people.

The Nintendo Switch offers a 6.2-inch touch screen, three play styles, and connects over Wi-Fi, thus enabling multiplayer gaming.
HP’s 16.1-inch Omen gaming laptop is selling for a good deal at Best Buy. Normally $1,479.99, you can snag the configuration with AMD’s previous-generation Ryzen 7 5800H processor, AMD’s Radeon RX 6600M graphics, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD for $1,149.99. It also features a 144Hz refresh rate 1080p display and other perks like a full-sized SD card reader, three USB-A ports, ethernet, USB-C, mini DisplayPort, and an HDMI port.
While we haven’t tested this particular model, its specs should deliver a good gaming experience for people who don’t need to run games on their highest graphical settings. In other laptops, this processor has been notable for its efficiency, and the RX 6600M graphics chip seems to be on par with Nvidia’s RTX 3060.

This 16.1-inch gaming laptop features AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800H processor and the Radeon RX 6600M graphics chip.
