This is the second episode of GG, our new gaming podcast here at eciov. In this episode Sean and Josh talk about Rockstar’s first attempt at an online version of their popular Grand Theft Auto series. While they ran into a lot of trouble early on, we’ve found the servers to finally be stable and the online side of the game definitely worth playing. There are plenty of reasons you may still want to throw your controller, but we’ll bring you up to speed on Grand Theft Auto Online in this episode.

We’ll surely visit GTA5 again in the future. There are things that we’ve discovered since originally recording this episode that would certainly help you with your gameplay, but our next episode will not be GTA related (we think). So if GTA isn’t your thing, hang in there, there are more games coming.

Biggest item of note – GTA Online may seem boring at first, but keep playing and don’t forget about the different mission types. It gets better as you play and open up more of the online world. The further you progress, the more fun it becomes.

Our hosts, Sean and Josh, both work in the technology industry and spend way too much of their time playing games. From consoles to tabletop, they’re interested in all styles of gameplay. Josh’s first video game was Pitfall! from the Atari 2600 first released in 1982. Sean’s first game was Duck Hunt on the NES first released in 1985. Apparently Josh’s parents were cooler than Sean’s… or less responsible… hard to say.

As we move forward with the podcast, we’ll cover a wide range of gaming topics, bring other gamers in for interviews, and do some Q&A from our listeners. We want your feedback. Sure, we’re doing this show because we love gaming, but we’re also here to entertain you. If we mess up, we want you to tell us. If you have a question, ask it. Feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.

Episode 2 – Grand Theft Auto Online, Part 2 Show Notes

We didn’t really have any notes for this show since it was mostly just our experience with the online gameplay.

Instead of reading our notes, you should leave a comment and let us know how you’re liking GTA5. Do it.
