Re: The Official HomeStation Magazine (HSM) Thread

Aug 9, 2011

Aloha, HSM readers!

Today's article: Enter the TARDIS: Diesel Island (written by Aeternitas33) -- a look at the wonderful Diesel Island space, and also a question: why must virtual reality conform to the rules of actual reality? In our quest to make virtual reality as immersive an experience as possible, should we think outside the box and attempt to explore the magic realism that virtual reality can offer?

Aloha, HSM readers!

Today's article: Video Gaming -- Media Scapegoat For All Problems (written by AlphaZone4's Cubehouse) -- an examination of the fallacy that violent video games produce violent behavior in real life. We've all heard about the rioting in the United Kingdom, and it's worth noting that this rioting took place very close to the author's flat (amongst other places). Video games are often cited as the knee-jerk reason why young people act violently, when in fact there really isn't any evidence correlating the two. A powerful read.

Aloha, HSM readers!

Today's article: Irem Last-Minute Shopping (written by KatCall75) -- a look back at Irem, one of Home's most beloved developers, and all the wonderful commodities and spaces they offered. May Granzella continue their tradition of digital excellence!

We also feature a couple of developer PR announcements from our friends at Lockwood and nDreams regarding their upcoming releases.

Aloha, HSM readers!

Today's article is a review of Lockwood's new Silicon Lounge personal estate, coming to Home later this month. If you haven't yet checked it out, let us know here at HSM! We'll be more than happy to give you a preview tour of the space so you can see it in person ahead of its release. It's one of Home's most unique and interesting personal estates; think Tron Legacy's End of Line Club having a love child with Star Trek's VGER at a Burning Man festival. Definitely worth a look-see.

Aloha, HSM readers!

Today's article is a humor piece from Olivia_Allin: a comparison of virtual reality with the insanity known as Walmart. Here's today's zen question: if you spend more time in virtual reality than the real world, which of the two is actually the more bizarre?
