It's that time of the week again. The GTA Netcast Episode #5 is going live tonight at 7:00pm EST. A few things that will be changed (again) this time round:

• Video will be recorded simultaneously with broadcasting.
• Visuals are going to be a bit different, to say the least.

As always, we're going to be live on Ustream.tv.

Here's what's being covered this time around:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
• Do you like the new HUD?

HEADLINES:
Official Website Update
Multiplayer Previews go Live
Rockstar Social Club Comes Tomorrow
OXM Reviews Grand Theft Auto IV

HOT TOPICS:
GTAForums City - Ottae
I CRUSH YOUR HEAD - Andy

Cheers!

You'd probably get more people listening if you pushed back the stream at least by an hour. Just a suggestion. 4pm on the West Coast is rather early and most people are not back from work or school at that time. I know it prob doesn't matter, but I wanted to put that out there.


Also, I have seen announcements for at least three of these streams and have no clue what the point of them is. What exactly are you covering on this stream other then random stuff that goes on on the forum and a few GTA announcements. Is it just a repeat of news that has been released during the week? or do you actually have interviews and new content that isn't just taken off of the net?

Right now it's pretty much just filler and an attempt to solidify the process and technology involved for when the game is actually released... Is it just a review of the week's news? Yeah, for the moment. We also can't do much of anything right now in terms of "original content" because there really isn't anything to cover.

When we get into the swing of things after the release of the game, we'll see how it goes.

That recording was through ustream, I believe Andy's done a separate one in Skype.

I missed the episode again so much thanks for the links Ottae, listening/watching now.

As for the HUD, its a yes from me. I like its simplicity and the fact that it doesnt take up valuable space on screen when you know so much effort has been put into the surrounding environment.

Is it me or is all the Rockstar Social Cub stuff completely missing?

Was good fun last night. Will hope to tune in next time.

Yeah, the recording was done through ustream. I'm going to try and improve the audio quality somehow. It's just *really* hard to do it since I'm basically looping audio over in my machine... it's a pain in the ass. I'll try to find some way to get around it.
