Hello, HSM readers!

 

Tonight's double feature features questions about how to deepen an experience in Home, and how to take a Home experience out of Home.

 

First, team writer CheekyGuy looks at what it could take to deepen the experience of owning pets in Home. Is it a dead market segment thanks to Home 1.7, or simply in need of some creative thinking?

 

Next, Editor-in-Chief NorseGamer looks at the Vita and Home in a different way. Home won’t show up on the Vita. But what if you could purchase Home *games* for the Vita?

 
We hope you enjoy.

Hello, HSM readers!

 

It's Wishlist Saturday time. Let's see what our writers have on their "Dear Sony" lists.

 

First up, editor BONZO looks at ways to deepen the experience of filming machinima in HomeFilmmaking is all about capturing *moments* — but in Home, where everyone moves exactly the same, and changes to the environment are still somewhat limited, what are some additional tools developers could potentially offer machinimists?

 

Next, Norse continues a train of thought he started with his VIta article. Sony is the only console manufacturer who also builds televisions. So would you buy a Sony television with the guts of a game console baked into it?

 

We hope you enjoy.

Aloha, HSM readers!

 

Today's double feature:

 

First up, HSM filmmaker Jin Lovelace announces a new Twilight Touch fashion show. If you've seen the amazing fashion videos Jin's been producing, you know this is no ordinary shindig. Check it out!

 

Second, we talk about the new LOOT Radios, coming soon to PlayStation Home. Is this possibly the most-awaited virtual item in the history of Home?

 

Written from the HomeStation,

I've got plans.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

Hello, HSM readers!

 

Here is tonight's double feature:

 

First up, team writer Godzprototype takes a look at Granzella's rollerskates. With all the new locomotions that have cropped up since Home's last update, rollerskating just seems like such a natural way to explore Home, doesn’t it?

 

Next we turn a spotlight on an old social issue on Home. The debate over an adults only section in Home has gone on for as long as Home has existed. In this article, two of our writers – editor emeritus Orion, with help from guest contributor Dlyrius – discuss with a civility rarely found in public forums in Home their opposing views on this topic.

 

We hope you enjoy.

Hello, HSM readers!

 

Tonight, we're offering a rather early, triple feature for your reading pleasure.

 

First up, Editor BONZO covers Juggernaut Games' upcoming release,the Nautilus Adventure Pack. Juggernaut has given you the freedom to fly. Now they give you the freedom to swim.

 

Next, our Editor-in-Chief, NorseGamer checks out Atom Republic's newest release. Come Wednesday, they'll be introducing hoverbikes to Home. The idea is fantastic, but how’s the aesthetic execution?

 

And lastly, Editor SealWyf provides us a fantastic Q & A with Juggernaut's George Cochrane about the content they're about to release this week. Sometimes it takes 21st-century technology to do justice to 19th-century adventures. Juggernaut’s new Nautilus Adventure Pack lets you become Captain Nemo in Home, or move any apartment underwater. Is it time to redecorate your neglected Neptune Suite?

 

We hope you enjoy.

Hello, HSM readers!

 

Here is tonight's double feature.

 

First, Editor BONZO looks at Lockwood's lion companion, Maliki, who has gained a second life as a rideable companion. The unique bond riders and their mounts - and in this particular instance, a Home user and their companion - share can now be enjoyed in a new way.

 

Secondly, team writer keara22hi conducts an interview with a practicioner of tier topping, rlt1027. Tier topping litereally means maxing out *every* game in the Casino to the top tier. Here is one user's strategy.

 

We hope you enjoy.

I've been considering trying out some of the games for a while but never really looked at the rewards. Seeing that one female outfit next to the magician makes me want to give this tier bidness a go go. Thanks for the insight terra and rit! Woman Happy

 

Uh oh. Smiley Embarassed That female outfit might not even exist and is apparently unrelated to the article. I thought the "Spooky Vikie" by Seth-Ris was a reward from the casino. Oops. nvm.

Hello, HSM readers!

 

Tonight, for the approaching holiday, we give you a special triple feature.

 

First up, team writer Burbie reviews D2O, Heavy Water's showcase space. Being one of Home's oldest and most eclectic developers,  they have debuted their first public space under their own developer brand. Let’s go on a tour and find out how it stacks up.

 

Next, Editor BONZO looks at Lockwood's new offerings. Home fashionistas rejoice! No, it’s not another fantastic line of clothing from Lockwood, but something far more useful. Now you no longer have to solely rely on the overused catwalk and model poses. New poses have arrived.

 

And finally, team writer ted2112 offers us a warm, Thanksgiving treat. As the holiday season is now upon us, it is a time to take a moment and be thankful for those we hold dear and for what we have. And for Home, that would also include the fantastic impossibility that we – all of us – have crossed paths in the virtual realm.

 

We hope you enjoy, and have a very happy Thanksgiving.
