On mice etc if you go wireless you risk the batteries going bad, my g703 mouse and 915 keyboard both not cheap had the battery go dead just outside the warranty - got prime and returned them back to Amazon.

Using a Logitech mechanical kb and wireless mouse that uses double As and they last ages.
I had the G613 lightspeed wireless for about 2 years before it developed keystroke issues. That was annoying, but it was such a great keyboard, and I think in that time I hadn't even replaced the batteries once. And when it died I found one on special for $80, so I bought another. So far it has lasted a year without issue.

The G502 Lightspeed wireless I bought is excellent. I expected it to die, so when they went on special again, I bought another one. 5 years later and I haven't had to open the new one yet.

I'm using a G613 at the moment, I love it - batteries great, changed to a G603 mouse (uses 1 AA) and it lasts ages.

I got damn razer crap but it was gifted so I can't complain. I do rate the keyboard 100000% though tbf. Mouse is getting closer to being nuked by the day.

So i am playing GTA5 AGAIN, i did the Heist last night, damn it was fun, i drilled a hole in the wall through the vault.

i have to say, the 5 star police rating was brutal to get around, i ended up going towards Trevor's place and driving on top of a mountain to get away, it was fun

The old buzzoff cheat is the best way for losing police when they're on your tail in GTA 5. Just jump in and fly off lol.

Another thing, jump in the freight train in one of the open carriages and start shooting whatever you want. The cops can't catch/stop you, but they can still shoot at you from the helicopters.

Fly off, in a chopper or plane?

I never thought of getting on a train, my next mission is to kill Trevor (I previously chose to do nothing) but i need to finish everything with Trevor before i kill him

Chopper. If you want a plane head over to the airport - but it's tough using a plane to escape the cops if they're onto you a 5 star police rating. And it's almost impossible to do at the army base, although I've done it a couple of times.

For anyone who's familiar with/remembers GTA 3 and the mission where you have to kill Salvatore Leone.

Damn I can't play games anymore, lose interest with 15-30 minutes. I'm cooked.
Because modern gaming has gone to shit and it's hard to get games that are actually good and fun to play, that draw you in enough to make you spend hours of game time playing said game.

Steller Blade comes out next month, that might keep your attention going :tongueclosed:

That's why people are dying for the next GTA game to come out. Because they know it will be good. Really good games rarely come along these days.

Maybe. I guess it's mainly because I was always more into multiplayer and now that I'm older it's getting too hard to keep up and that pisses me off :tearsofjoy:

Join the club bro....brand new XBox Series X and not bothered to play fuck all
might be a phase bro, happens to me all the time with gaming, either I go hard on a game or don’t play for several months.

Stil havent finishedSpider-Man and I’m about 40% in, hardly play and when I do it’s not for long.

Recently built a new gaming PC and I don’t even use it, that’s about 2.8k I won’t get back.
