    FYI death music is in-game creations only, just like tattoos and car decals. You know, kind of like the rings tones on cheap cell phones you gotta make yourself with a Composer. Which is why I wanna use a SNES tone for my death music (Kefka's Laugh from FFVI). :winky: So their won't be any human voices in your death music, just tones. Lucky for me, Kefka's laugh is a tone. :) Now I just gotta find the composer notes for it.

    New podcast about the music studio and how it interlinks last.fm into the game. It's a really dry podcast.

    I saw you can subdue in a play video podcast deal. It was really cool and I think you even get a bonus for doing that as opposed to gunning them down.

    That sounds awesome.

    With the crazy customization it should be no hassle to create my character to look like Junior from Reno 911. Mustache and all.

    From what i remember, if you arrest someone in a mission they take longer to spawn (1 minute compared to the normal 30 seconds or something.)

    Of course it's a risk; as you are still vulnerable as you arrest someone.

    Also - can't wait for this game. Hoping they have oceanic servers somewhere down the line. It's an ea title, so chances are better then normal.

    So I received my Beta Invite in the mail today - currently installing and updating. God I'm keen to try this out.

    EDIT: But now it's 'Updating' and it needs to pull down 8gb of stuff. Woo. I knew that 70mb installer was small, but yeesh.

    Well now.

    I wonder if this beta I keep hearing about supports Windows 7. Unfortunately, noone could probably tell me due to NDAs.

    I'm having the same problem, I wonder if it might not have been the volume of traffic from new invites making them have issues.

    My downloader has downloaded 87% of it and now crashes every time I try to download more =(

    It also crashed a couple times during downloading, but restarted fine. So I'm hoping this just the content servers being down or something. I'll have to check the forums sometime.

    I suspect it's not exactly liked due to then other people asking for details, but I think you're safe in openly saying you're in the beta - and that's it.

    Yeah, you can create the 'death music' a player hears when you kill them. I want to make one that really loud and annoying, so when I kill people they get pissed.

    So you want to be one of those silly geese who trolls games instead of the internet? Such aspirations.

    I wish I had a computer good enough to run this, because this sounds like one of those games I would daydream about years ago.

    And the character creator, if it is still the same as it was when it was previewed last year, is a thing of dreams.

    Yeah but they are really cool mirrors.

    What kind of stuff are you wondering about the game, cause most of the questions I had about it have already been answered in pod casts.

    I dunno about transcripts but yeah their dialog is less than enjoyable at times.

    From what I remember them saying combat is like Grand Theft Auto or Saints Row.

    If you don't mind waiting too long I could maybe type them up just for the sake of having something to do at home.

    Apparently the problem was that they linked us to the EUROPEAN version of the Beta, which links you to the EUROPEAN version of the forums - of course we don't have accounts setup there.

    They sent out a 'Oops, we fucked up!' e-mail, so now all is good. If you installed the EU version of the Beta and need to fix it, go here for the fix.
