We're adding a little something to this month's sales contest...

Well, after playing this game for a few days and knowing firsthand how difficult it is to bust people out, I've decided to offer a little incentive in the spirit of our "DVDTalk family".

So from here on out, I'll kick in a little bonus for anyone who reaches the magical numbers of 10 and 100 bustouts of my fellow otters.

Now I'm in jail for buying a beer. How long does it take before you can buy booze? I've tried like 10 times.

I wish it kept track of target practice. All I have done was shoot myself in the foot 5 times, been too drunk many times, and been arrested just as many.

Is the point just killing practice? Would I be better off robbing little kids?

If you succeed you get 0.1% in killing skill. Pretty useless if you ask me.

what rank are you? I wasnt able to buy booze on any type of basis until I was a pickpocket. As a thief I am about 30-40% success rate, I would guess.

keep trying, I failed over 50 times in a row. Is taking $2 from a kid really going to help you in the grand scheme of things?

lol. that's hard to track. I'm up to 82 bustouts (yippie) but I don't know how many of those were otters. I shoot for otters first, then family members, then anybody else.

I'm up to 20 bustouts. I'm not sure what percentage of that is Otters, but I always look for them first.

I certainly haven't been trying to specialize, but I always try when I can't do anything else. I figure it has to help somehow.

What is everyone's bust out %? Mine's still at 1%. I'll keep practicing with my gun but bullets are, at this level, still expensive for me.

7.3% killing skill here - seems kind of worthless at first, but I think the killing skill is more important the further you progress in the game. I've made plenty of money from selling stolen cars and the occasional heist/organized crime.

(And 319 bustouts, here. . .)

You don't need bullets to work on your killing skill, just a gun. You use bullets for organized crimes and stuff.

Fair enough. I'll presume that we're mostly breaking out otters here. I just wanted to offer a small incentive and make it worth your time. (I know how difficult it is!)

Reach ten/hundred and I'll throw something your way!

I am over 100 breakouts. I am at almost 2 minutes in jail time trying to bust people out, so it is almost not worth trying to break them out. Unless I really have nothing else to do.
