Pussi Riot’s Halloween Spooktacular on PS3 is getting ever closer and we’ve got some exciting updates to share with y’all…
Since we announced the event a couple of weeks ago we’ve been busting out tooshies behind the scenes to create exclusive content you won’t find or have seen anywhere else. We’re busy tweaking and play testing them to ensure they are the best they can be come party night. I won’t reveal any specifics just yet but we’ve got races, TDM’s, captures, last team standings…the whole shebang baby.
What you need to do…
Excited? You should be.
But you can’t just expect to turn up on the night and have everything handed to ya. We need you to do something for us too right?
- First off you need to get yourself a hearse, get it insured and get it customised. Make it as sick and as funky as you can…you’re gonna need it.
- Come up with the most orignal and gruesome halloween outfit that you can. Even if Rockstar do not give us a Halloween DLC, I wanna see you gals get creative.
- Pay attention to the instructions surrounding each game or job. Some games are a little wacky and you will need to play them in a certain way. For example there will be a brutal, sickening, horror version of ‘hide and seek’ played on the night and it needs to be played in a certain way. If you don’t, it won’t work and you will have ruined it for everyone and Pussi Riot don’t like party poopers!!!
- Lastly, we would like you to sign up for a Skype account. Don’t freak out! It’s free and we’re only asking you to create an account under your PSN name. “Why would I wanna do that?” I hear you protest. Well, for a number of reasons. Messaging people through PSN is ridiculously slow. Chat room on PSN is ridiculously slow. The PSN messaging app on i-phone and android is ridiculously slow. Carrier pigeons are too rare to be viable…ditto smoke signals.
Basically, what we’ve found recently is people are getting disconnected, freezing and having to switch their consoles off and on again. While that’s happening the host and party reps have no idea what is going on or that you are in trouble. Worst still is if the party host or reps get disconnected etc. With Skype we have instant, real time messaging in a crew only chat room. If you freeze, we’ll know instantly and will wait for you to reconnect. Crucially though we’ve also found it’s a lot of fun. Real time banter to accompany the onscreen silliness? Awesome.
Myself and everyone involved in bringing this party to you are all signed up to Skype under our PSN name with an avatar of our…erm…avatar in GTA5, so you know exactly who is typing away and can see them larking about on screen too.
It’s well worth doing so please look in to doing it.
Hows the party gonna work?
For those of you who never attended one of our shindigs, missed out on it’s rampaging awesomeness or were just plain confused when you did make it in, here is a recap of how our parties are set up. The host will run a closed, crew only ‘entrance lobby’. From there they invite crew members in until the session was full. Once it is full, they designate a party rep to begin running the playlists and themed content, and that party rep will invite everyone from the session in to it. This group would then be that particular reps group of players to take care of for the night. Back in the entrance lobby, the host will then begin to fill it again and repeat the process this time using a different rep.
Who’s my host?
Your hostess with the mostess is gonna be….. meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Blondarus (bondarus) – Commissioner of Pussi Riot and all round awesome, ‘winning’ creature
Who are the party reps?
Your part hosts for this month have been drawn from the wonderful peeps who helped create and play test all the themed content. I’m proud to introduce to you…
Scuba.C.Vercetti – (Scuba_Christ) – Lieutenant and head of Pussi Riot Productions
BinchenChaos – Lieutenant and co-captain of Riot Alpha Taskforce
DjangoDango (Gagagolightly) – Lieutenant, DJ and station head at Radio Gaga
Upon entering the entrance lobby on the night, you will be told which of those three will be your particular host. When they invite you in to the first playlist you should accept and then stick with them for the rest of the night. They will be using ‘invite all from previous session’ option every time they launch a new playlist and so in theory you should never end up anywhere other than in a lobby with the group and rep you started with.
THE END PRODUCT…WE HOPE!
If this scenario works out then a party rep could take away up to fifteen rioters each, which potentially means we could entertain maybe forty eight rioters at once with the three party hosts! Add to that me as host, and you are looking at sixty four rioters which is more than we’ve ever done before. POW! Beats the snot out of sixteen which was our limit in the early days, right?
Anyways, I hope that was pretty straightforward to understand? If you have any questions about it, ideas to help it run extra smoothly or you want to help out on the night, please leave a message below or PM me.
Yours always and forever
