    You can buy the cars, property, planes, etc. all through the internet.
    You must have to advance to a certain part of the game then. The property site is "under construction" every time I try to go there. And there isn't anything on my map with "$" for housing.

    Guess I'll just keep playing till I get those options.

    I believe you have to get Trevor to Los Santos. Then property opens up. It would be pretty hard to accumulate that much money before then anyways, unless you were glitching.

    You are correct... It opened up for me when I got Trevor... He started w enough $ to buy the Hen House...

    I figured as much. I didn't think I would switch to Trevor right after I was about to get paid! haha Man, I was hoping to buy something and then, nope, here's Trevor.

    Really digging Trevor. What a character!

    After about 3 hours I was able to finally steal that ****ing fighter jet from the army base.

    Gotta say, GTAV is the most fun I've had playing a game in a long time, and I was starting to really get soured on games (I played an hour of Dishonored, but just didn't find it fun, just feel like I'm grinding without fun gameplay on Madden/NCAA). Every time I turn on the PS3, it just feels like a unique experience. One playthrough, I'll be focused on missions. The next time, I might just see a really cool thing and go explore it. Or hop on an ATV and drive around. Or actually care about upgrading cars, clothes, etc. (I never do that crap in other games unless I have to -- Bethesda games are lost on me).

    A couple of my bigger likes so far:

    1. Police chases actually feel like they have more gravity to them. It didn't really seem to matter if you got in a chase in previous GTAs. You could easily find your way out of it. This time around, you actually have to think. You have to switch cars, figure out somewhere like the aquaduct or train tunnels where you can lay low, etc. I like this version better.

    2. Gunplay feels right, not just auto-targeting with clunky mechanics like previous versions. This largely because the cover system works better. AI seems tougher, too.

    3. Heists are ridiculously fun. I've only done the first one so far, but the gameplay on the entire motorcycle sequence was breathtaking. Edge of my seat the entire time.

    4. More than anything, I like the 3 character dynamic. I could never decide how I wanted to play Niko in GTA4. The entire experience just never felt cohesive -- was he a smooth assassin, a psychopath maniac? Was he a careful driver, a wild driver? Because he was the only representative, he had to embody so many personalities for the player that he just felt bland, and I could never really get into "how" to play him. But with Michael/Franklin/Trevor, it legitimately rewards you to play each differently. If I play as Trevor, I often find myself going out of the way to blow things up, be a douche, hit deer, etc. If I play as Franklin, I go out of my way to race across the map, do cool driving things, etc. It's not a conscious decision. It's just that each really has his own feel, to me, and I can play the game three different ways.

    5. San Andreas is a hugely impressive accomplishment unto itself. I haven't used any cheats yet. It's fun just to explore within San Andreas.

    Oh man that whole heist had my heart racing. I felt alot of nerves. This game does a good job of making you care about the outcome of things.

    Not really... I had just replayed GTA San An right before V came out... Flying seemed much more controllable to me on V... But maybe that's due to my practice on San An? The controls are identicle... But the plane seemed much more stable in V... Also... Keep in mind that Trevor is already a skilled pilot when the game starts... The other two will have to level up their skill with experience... Who were you using?

    I read the easiest way to do it is to enter the base by car w Franklin... As soon as you enter hit his Special Ability... You should be able to reach the jet before you run out of special (and I believe you won't get stars until you run out of Special... If I remember correctly)

    I just completed the first flying mission (with Trevor stealing gun shipment). Took a few attempts to get the hang of it, and a boatload to get the hang of landing. Landing sucks.

    A tip for you guys...

    You can buy a LS Customs franchise up in Trevor country... And it is one of the businesses that can be purchased by any of the characters... I suggest buying it with your favorite character... As once you purchase it you will get completely free car repairs and custom jobs at your shop... This saves a ton of money and allows you to easily keep any car you find dressed for success with that one character...

    I am good at flying an airplane but holy mother of god I suck at flying a helicopter. I just wobble around up there and end up crashing.

    Dr. Hibbert touched on the best think about GTA V. Having the three characters makes doing whatever you want fit the characters and makes the game overall so much more enjoyable. With GTA IV, you had Niko in cut scenes acting all Emotional about killing and so on, but when your in the mood to blow crap up it just threw the whole thing off. Now if I just want to do some horrible things I just switch to Trevor and go crazy and it just feels more natural.

    So what is the craziest thing Trevor has been doing when you switch him. The last two times I have switched to him he was running from the cops and the other he was shirtless and puking in a fountain.

    I suck at the helicopters. Especially if it is a timed thing. Flight school about drove me mad when I had to get through a course in a select time with the helicopter. I'm ok with the planes, though.

    You can play it with a keyboard and mouse, but I don't recommend it. Get a Logitech or the Xbox 360 gamepad.

    I'm just about to snag my first helicopter. We'll see if I struggle with that more than planes.

    As for Trevor, once I switched to him and it was dawn and he was doing the crane from the Karate Kid, and another he was just waking up from sleeping on teh balcony ledge...still drunk too...in his underwear.

    Got fed up with trying to play with my keyboard, so I borrowed my roommates 360 controller. Hopefully I can get better at it.

    I'm really pumped for NBA 2K14. I guess I don't like GTA as much as I thought I would. It was my first GTA game. I'll probably enjoy GTA Online more, but I really want my basketball sim!
