    Wow,... so no one is talking about Uproar? Really?

    Now I'm not trying to sound like a jerk. But all hope and excitment I had for this game has been turned into stress and near rage. Allow me explain. I played the actual game for about 3 mins. And I loved it. The gameplay is really nice. I had joined a round that was almost over, got a few kills in, and my team won. I earned some exp and I was pumped to play another round.

    But then it happened. Home crashed and I had to boot it up again. Well, these things happen, so it's not a big deal. As soon as Home loaded up I tried to go back to the Uproar space. As soon as I appear there, Home crashes again.

    I repeated this process 10 times, and every single time Home restarted as soon as I entered. I tried going to other spaces, no problem there. I cleared my cashe, same thing happened. I got on my wife's account from her own PS3. Same thing.

    Look, Lockwood, I love you guys. Really. But no matter how great Uproar is, if I can't play the blasted thing, and worse it crashes Home just trying to go to the space (I am not even talking about trying to launch the actual game), then why should I chance it? I could just spend my time in another (company's) space.

    Sure it only takes 3 - 5 mins to start up Home again. And yeah, I'm sure you'll sort out this problem in the very near future. But this isn't making a very good first impression. Heck, I know people that haven't even been about the play the game once. (No, I am not the only one with this problem.)

    Also, the ability to switch teams after death ruins the game. Because the winning team gets an exp bonus, people jump to the winning side near the end of a round. I can't say it happens all the time. (Since, you know, I only got to play Uproar once.) So what may start a fair 3 vs 3 game, could very well end up a 5 vs 1 game.

    One person can't beat 5 enemies at once. Or hell, even 3 if they all coming from different directions. The poor guy playing solo is going to get his ass handed to him.. and he's not likely to play Uproar again. And a person who isn't playing the game is is very unlikely to buy Uproar goods. This feature not only allows for lopsided teams, but could also drive away customers.

    I think it would be very wise to write up a public apology explaining what the problem is, while at the same time offering everyone their own Uproar 'personal space' (like you did with Sodium1), that would allow the user to invite some of his friends over for a small, but working game. (Like Novus Prime's Officer's Quarters allows.) The reasoning is that having small groups of people playing Uproar is better then no one playing it at all.

    You might also want to take a look at Peakvox Labs' Ninja, as it has gameplay that is very similar to Uproar while only rarely (never?) crashing.

    Anyways, sorry for the rant. But if you read between the lines, I am really only trying to help.

      I haven't been able to enter the lounge. I tried on the first day but the lounge wouldn't let me in.

      I shifted to EU and got to try it. But without friends I just sorta left and went back to NA. :)

      I've tried to play Uproar but everytime I load the came I get the "Happy Blue Error Screen". I'll give it a shot later because I've heard it is a good game.

      I would ask Lockwood. The fact that you can sit down on muzzle cannon in Lockwood Publishing Showcase. Therefore, I have long wished to receive this gift. I was a little disappointed when I finally got it, in fact you can not sit on muzzle cannon.
      Very good idea to sit on the cannon muzzle - why deprived of the opportunity to sit in a real product ... Thanks for you attention, sorry for this observation, may be you can make some changes.

      I just hope that the shower and bathtub will be actually FUNCTIONAL,. I'm not counting on it and I really don't think they are functional but what if they were? That would be a huge step-up. I don't think people want to see their naked avatars in the shower, this aint the Sims o_O

        As far as the Arctic Yacht rewards go.. are you sure those 'day limits' are accurate? I received the Side Table and Two Seater Sofa on Thursday 1/3, and the Book Collection on Friday 1/4. Not that it's a big deal, but offering some more info.

          Horses of the Prairie!



          A soft breeze stirs the long grasses. Sunlight dapples the dusty ground through the trees, their leaves red and gold. On the horizon, the rusted out hulk of an old steam train begs exploration and a snuffling sound in the grass outside the perimeter fence warrants further investigation. The only thing is, that fence is so far off. Walking there would take so long. If only.... Oh, wait!

          Drey Noir-and more, this weeks Lockwoods content!



          She slid into his office like a sword into a sheath -- sleek, sharp and dangerous. The cut of her suit spoke of wealth, but her eyes spoke only anger. He picked up a pen from his desk and rolled it between thumb and forefinger, waiting, letting her set the tone of this encounter. She leaned forward, placing her hands on his desk, one made a fist, expensive leather glove clenched tightly around expensive leather clutch purse. She drew in a breath-

          Drey Noir. Live your story.

            I like the Drey Noir male clothes, The female clothes didn't interest me though. I thought the video was cute though.

                An error is currently affecting several of our apartments and public spaces. This occured when the month changed from Jan to Feb and unfortunately could not have been forseen until this happened. We have a fix planned for this and will get it in place as soon as possible. We'd like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank SCE Japan and Lockwood fans for bringing this to our attention so quickly.
