Logging On is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to Niko Bellic by his cousin Roman from Roman's cab depot in Hove Beach. The mission introduces computer usage, TW@ internet cafés, and the ingame internet, and is also the first appearance of Brucie Kibbutz.
Niko meets Roman at his taxi office in Hove Beach, and also meets Brucie Kibbutz, a friend of Roman's. Roman tells Niko he is frustrated that Niko doesn't have an email account, and Niko promises to create one.
Niko leaves Roman's office and drives to the internet café on Oneida Avenue. Niko walks inside and meets Alejandra, another one of Roman's friends. Niko logs onto a computer and activates an account with the EyeFind Mail Service. Once Niko's account has been created, he logs off the computer and leaves the internet café.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Go to the internet cafe.
- Go and speak to the assistant in the cafe.
- Go and use one of the computer terminals.
- Check your email
- Reply positively to activate your account
- Log off the computer terminal
- Leave the internet cafe
Niko calls Roman and informs him he now has an email account, and he also makes a comment about Alejandra's breasts.
Roman calls back asking Niko if he would "acquire" some cars for Brucie.
