And still no word about Bully where you "even contacted the studio lead".

At least there should be less cheaters now. But that also means that there are even less people playing multiplayer.

My game crashes while loading (after GFW:L loads, but before the Rockstar logo appears) now.

Great job Rockstar QA! (Failure!)

Also crashes here.

Might be the "German title screen" bug again? Game itself is set to English, but that German title screen appears. Bleh.

Crashes here too, Windows 7 x64 7057. Same place (During the second Rockstar logo, the blue one). Very weird thing is I look at the error log on windows and it says Teamviewer crashed at that time, I wasn't even using Teamviewer then.

If the crash is so widespread, you have to wonder how it was cleared by QA.

Terrible.
