Re: Vote For Your Overall Favorite 2012 Home Developer

My personal top 5

 

1.) Lockwood-  I have say that Lockwood has been the best this year overall. I absolutely love Uproar and Mercia is pretty good as well excluding the bugs. Dream Island was cool as well as some of their outfits they made this year. They put out the gift shop, given out tons of free stuff like the pink items and bacon comapnion, and had the showcase makeover a while back.

 

2.) Juggernaut- I love their Minibots game that we actually got for free. Palace of the 7 winds is a very cool space and great rewards. We got Cutterridge updates, adventure packs liek the steampunk one, and many cool items and companions from them as well this year.

 

3.) Heavy Water- Avalon Keep is a really good personal space. Very interactive with games and rewards for everyone. They have lower active item limits on their active items like the peeps which helps a lot for those who need the extra furniture space. We also got some cool Halloween items and cothing items this year as well. They also are currently making the community work together to reach goals each week to earn free weekly items.

 

4.) Digital Leisure- Casino is one of my favorite spaces in Home. Free weekly chips and poker, tons of rewards to earn, and games to play. Also get an occasional limited time holiday reward as well. Old West Sallon and their Space apt were released along with some cool outfits.

 

5.) nDreams- They released some cool things this year like Savage Manor, Blueprint Home, newlly released Terminator outfits from nRage, Aurora 1.6 including the new Blimps game, and the recently released FUBAR game. Locomotion items were first released by them and they seem to be planning some XI 2 stuff.

Poll would be better if placed here.. In the forums. 

 

1. Digital leisure (Why) constant updates to spaces and user feedback interaction with stable play.

2. Lockwood  - Constant products, and community friendly

3. juggernaut - Cutting  Edge

4. NDreams - Just fun stuff

5. HellFire - indepth and fun

 

Loot is doing OK.

Granzella Is way overpriced. But most of them are now. They just do not bring anything interesting to the table for me.

Veemee ..  Seems to be the bottom this year.

Konami who?

This is really a tough call for me this year. If I had to have a top 5 list (in no particualr order) my favorite developers would be...

 

1.) nDreams - Locomotion items, Blueprint Home, and the recent release of the Terminator 2 items... nDreams is without question one of my favorite developers this year.

 

2.) Hellfire Games - Despite what some might think of Hellfire at this point in time, I still like their work. Home Tycoon was a cool new addition as well as the speedwings.

 

3.) Lockwood - What can I say about them that others havent said already??? Jokes aside, I really liked their personal spaces they released this year, especially the Dream Island. Also you got to love all the contests they have, either being on PlayStation Home or even Facebook & or Twitter.

 

4.) Juggernaut Games - With The Palace of the Seven Winds (alongside with the Essence of the Seven Winds active item) and the updates to the Cutteridge Estate.... they really brought some awesome content to Home this year

 

5.) Heavy Water - The Avalon Keep is another great personal space and the Helicopter Acitve Item is also another great addition, especially for machinima developers.

 

...........Now If the amount of content I bought this year were to say anything, Lockwood's got my vote. I swear every week they come out with something and what's nice is that they have a little something for everyone.

 

 

There is some time before the end of the year and with many developers saying that they still have some very exciting content coming out before the end of the year (Such as LOOT with the RadioIO item which I believe they said would come out later this year *crosses fingers*)... I cannot wait to see what other surprises are ahead. Smiley Happy

I guess everyone is overlooking the Cutteridge update and Minibots.

 

The year isn't over yet either. If I have to cast a vote now it would be tough. Right now, for me it's between Lockwood and Juggernaut.

Digital Leisure is 3rd only because they didn't :stick to their word", as mention earlier.

Lockwood's bonehead move not to change the showcase wasn't the best idea.


Juggernaut gets my vote 135%!

 

1. Arguably, some of the best updates.

 

2. 7 winds ( enough said )

 

3. 1st developer to release active loungers that ONLY uses 3 slots!

 

4. There awesome  personal / club skin bundles pricing.

 

5.Their countless rewards for users.

 

This developer is the reason I look foward to Wednesday update! Juggernaut needs more work!

 

GREAT JOB JUGGERNAUT! WE ACHE FOR MORE!  Smiley LOL

1. Lockwood- I just love their content. Things are priced fairly and I think their bundles are a real value. They're clothing is definitely my favorite, and they've made some of my favorite personal spaces. I mean the Dream Island to me was awesome, a space that changes each day of the week? And we can swim there without joining a mini-game! Awesome.

 

2. Juggernaut- Awesome company with a real eye to detail. It seems with everything they do, they always make sure there is a lot of detail. From the day cycling in Palace of the Seven Winds to the massive creeps in the Cutteridge update. Awesomely great company.

 

3. Granzella- They make awesome clothing and some really cool personal spaces. The whole idea that they made a museum to showcase our fossil rewards is awesome. The secluded beach is great too, especially that spa.

I don't remember who makes all these spaces, games and items.

 

If Hellfire makes Tycoon then they're #1.

Whoever makes F.U.B.A.R. is #2.

Pirates Cove maker is #3.

And the maker of the bathroom sink (YAY!) is #4 just on principle.

And whoever makes the first rideable bicycle that will also work in Tycoon like the skatboard outfit gets #5. I don't know if I can vote for something that doesn't exist? So in lieu of the bicycle, then the skateboard outfit maker.

 

This makes sense to me anyway.  

 

Edited due to bad counting. Smiley Sad

  • Juggernaut Games - So far, I've seen alot of good things. The release of Minibots was a great accomplishment and recently, thier updates to the Cutteridge Estate, Juggernaut has done very well this year and they have really impressed me.
  • Digital Leisure - The Penthouse release was good but I was really excited when they released The Casino back in January. With all the work they put into it and thier contious updating with the space, Digital Leisure has really done well to try and make themselves the best developer on Home. Close, but not the best too me.
  • Hellfire Games - Home Tycoon. Great game, but still is not what I expected much. I do think they did wonderful with some updates to Novus Prime as well. Still with thier game, they have tried to establish themselves and I look forward to any future releases from Hellfire.
  • nDreams - Good updates to Aurora with 1.5 and 1.6. The Locomotion items receny has made them stand out. I think with the Locomotion items this company will go very far.
  • Lockwood Publishing - Simply amazing, with the release of Uproar and Mercia, whats more to say about this? This get smy spot for my favorite 2012 Home Developer
  • VEEMEE - Well they had some good releases but with No Mans Land, I was sadly disappointed and with their prices, I sort of lost my faith in VEEMEE.
  • Mass Media - With Midway 3, that was amazing and I will give credit for Mass Media making good items, but I hope they release more.
  • LOOT - I love the release EOD TVs, this is my third favorite developer. With LOOT's free stuff also, and Men In Black III, this was good!
  • Granzella - My second favorite, I loved all of Granzella's release, with Glittering Sands, they are slowly beginning to re-capture the IREM spirit. Im enjoying thier outfits that they released as well.
  • Heavy Water - Thier tattoos were amazing this year I believe they did extraordinailry good and I do have high hopes for this company to be the best developer in the future for me
  • Konami - Thier Gothic Line was good but I believe most of Konami's stuff was been buried, which is sad.
