That's exciting. I gave it a try for a little while, but I cleared the software from my computer because I needed more space for music. It's interesting, you walk around as a self styled character and can buy things with their online money (which costs real money). I unfortunately didn't get a chance to get to the actual section where you can buy things or see stores or concerts or anything. I've heard musicians have held performances on this. Very interesting.


Chopping beats since 1999.

I was interested in it but all it seems to do is crash on my laptop, so it wasn't worth my time.

I hear that a lot of IRL businesses are buying a lot of land in game, it's pretty interesting.

When I signed up I had a chance to get some free money for signing up for permission for them to charge you should you buy something in game.
