No, I'm not rushing the season! I'm not talking about Christmas...yet. The most wonderful time of the year is surely Halloween on both Rubi-ka and in The Secret World!
The Celebrations start on October 26 at 11:00 am EDT as ARK, Funcom, and GSP bring you their annual Halloween Party live from The Grind.
The Party then moves to The West Athens Patio at 5:00 pm EDT as Valheru Ascendants takes over as our party hosts For their Halloween Boo Bash!
At 11:00 pm EDT it's back to The Grind as we rejoin the ARK party until 1:00 am and if that wasn't enough, we'll be back at The Grind again on Sunday, October 27th from Noon until 6:00 pm EDT!
And that's just Anarchy Online... The fun continues in The Secret World.
We're getting started on October 31 at 5:00 pm EDT with... well you'll just have to tune in to find out who the surprise guest is kicking things off. Then at 8:00 pm EDT Ashval will be topping off the evening.
But that's still not all!
We're bringing back our surprise guest at 5:00 pm EDT on Friday as well, followed by the lovely DJ Cherri.
*Whew* That's a whole lot of Halloween Celebrating!
Now do you see why I call it the most wonderful time?
(and I haven't even mentioned the Uncle Pumpkinhead and Cat God events taking place in their respective game worlds).
Can't wait to see you all for tricks, treats, prizes, and surprises!!!
That's right we've added another DJ to our ranks. DJ Azuca has joined us in TSW. He still has his hoops to jump through (and me with my hands on a whip, how convenient!) But you short start to hear him on air in short order!
Oh and don't worry...Halloween is coming complete with tricks, treats, and surprises... more on that...soon!
He's been a DJ for GSP already - and now he's back!
Please say Hi and/or Welcome back to our DJ Beardedgoose who will be doing shows in AO (at least for a start). I've personally been enjoying some of his songs already during the soundcheck and I'm positive you'll find him to be quite an addition to our team!
So watch the forums for his first ninja show!
Glad to have you back, mate!
Hey there -
Just checking in with some news to share with you guys.
As I'm sure you're aware by now last month we officially crossed the streams...and lived to tell the tale! We are now officially One Gridstream Community supporting both Anarchy Online and The Secret World. So far we think this has really worked out well. We'd like to get your feedback on it though. Good move? Not so good move? Loving every minute of it? Things you miss or wish we'd done differently? As always your feedback is important to us so we'd appreciate your (constructive) comments. :)
In recent weeks we also launched our brand new show: Pandora's Box. This show will be on Saturdays and just like the name suggests you never know what you might get. One week it will take place in Anarchy Online and the next it will take place in The Secret World. The times will change, the DJ's will change, and even the genre will change. It's all going to be pretty wacky. So far we're having fun with it and I hope you guys are too!
So what's on the horizon for GSP?
This weekend may mark the unofficial end of summer in the US, but summer is far from over in The Secret World. On September 7, Nine Swords Cabal is Celebrating The Draug Days of Summer. Time to put on those brand new bikinis, Hawaiian shorts, and flip flops in boogie in The Forsaken Oasis at 5:00 pm EDT.
But that's not all ye' skallywags! That's right September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day and in GSP we'll be doubling your Pirate Fun! We're starting on the 19th in the Secret world and then picking back up again on the 21st in Anarchy Online. As always keep your eyes peeled for details!
And as summer fun ends and we head into autumn we all know what that means. Halloween will be here with the usual array of tricks, treats, and parties in both AO and TSW. More details to come as we get closer to the witching season!
We've no doubt that there will be plenty of holiday events coming as well as we close out the year, but once the holidays are done, don't put those dancing shoes away just yet. DJ Ashval has announced that he'll be doing a weekend long marathon show starting on January 17 and hoping to break the record of 51 hours, 6 minutes set by Stefano. He'll be coming to you live from the Crusades in London. See this post for all the details:
One more thing before I let you go this time. We realize that with summer holidays we've had a number of cancellations due to vacations and whatnot. Now that summer is drawing to a close we expect that our schedules will be more consistent. We also have some new DJ's working their way through the application process on both game worlds. So don't fret, we've got plenty of liveness still to come!
As always, thanks for listening,
