    Violence and Lubrication is the solution to fixing everything, if it still doesn't work, you need more lubrication.

    Re: Epic's servers crumble under Mega Sale GTA V giveaway strain

    I finally grabbed a copy this morning. I did buy it a few years back on the Rockstar thing but not the Premium Edition. I downloaded it and tried to play a few times but couldn't get it to run properly even though my system far exceeded recommended specs and kept following all tips to get it going. Maybe this weekend I'll try with this version and get swept up with it. Surely all bugs must have been ironed out by now

    Who doesn't own this game at this point given how old it is and remains a top seller ?

    I guess somebody.

    If you are paying for any title on Epic then you are doing it wrong.

    Re: Epic's servers crumble under Mega Sale GTA V giveaway strain

    I created an Epic account back when they first opened the store for the sole purpose of grabbing all the free games but I'm not sure why I still bother because the only thing I ever played was 15 minutes of Enter the Gungeon. If I'm going to spend money on a game, I'll buy it elsewhere. My preferred store is GoG whenever possible.

    Re: Epic's servers crumble under Mega Sale GTA V giveaway strain

    Got my copy yesterday, and I'm one of the 'few' who never played it before. In fact, I've never played any GTA before either! I'm tight when it comes to paying for games, only getting them generally when a tenner or less unless I'm really keen on them, and not once have I seen it at a price I'd call decent when considering how old it is, so it's great to finally have it for free!
