Thanksgiving Holiday Celebration

Autumn is here, there’s a crisp zing to the air, the leaves are changing colors and Thanksgiving is nearly here! In Pier Park, we have a fall theme coming, complete with a full decor take-over, a Witch Hunt game and more.

No, there are no turkeys to chase this year, but there are rewards-a-plenty to earn.

In the spirit of community working together, there’s a banquet to make that requires a group effort. Can your team race to collect the ingredients in time to make the table as plentiful as this?

Iron Fusion Panthabots

With help from their growing family of Mechs, Iron Fusion’s scientists studied the esoteric design of the Samurai and Geisha Bots and used their findings to create the next generation of transforming robots. Unlike their predecessors the Mechjets, Panthabots Falchion, Makhaira, Shamshir, Atrox, Azandica and Tulliana are able to alter their form at will.

The Panthas have exceptional visual and olfactory scanning capabilities. They have begun training in physical combat, apparently in preparation of a coming enemy, but are reticent when it comes to specific details. Initial data implies that the past disappearance of several Solar Fusilier and Abyss Trooper units, plus the appearance of a mysterious ‘Shadow Portal’ are all somehow connected to the Panthabots high alert status.

Introductory offer bundles are available for 2 weeks with a 33% discount!

Time for Turkey!

Your friend is getting ready for thanksgiving dinner, but something about their chosen outfit just isn’t working, they need to accessorise! Look no further as Lockwood provides the perfect gift – a Turkey Headdress! Available now from the Gift Machine. If you think they would prefer eating turkey to wearing it, you can pick them up a delicious plated roast turkey instead, Lockwood caters for all tastes…

Experience the faint scent of autumn. Head out on the town dressed for the season!

Granzella introduces a couple new Yukatas. Against an impressive vivid blue, this pattern features willows and frogs. From this pattern, one can imagine swaying willows and a frog leaping into a pond. Of course, it’s available for both men and women.

I’m “thankful” the Granzella suits and rollerskates are coming out this week after last week’s false blog update, but why are we still not getting the teahouse?

The skeletal knight armor for women looks good, I’m glad we are finally getting something like that, it’s usually only males that get the cool armor. So I guess I’ll be picking that up as well.

Also the Thanksgiving Pier looks very nice visually, but I’m not looking forward to forced multiplayer again :/

The new Uproar outfits are looking better than the original. Something more for the mature gang banger.

And Granzella’s been coming out with some very colorful clothes. Something to wear at home when not out battling demons.

Thank you for the news!

The Pier Park looks very nice for Thanksgiving, and the game with the ingriediants looks good to! I did not enjoy the Halloween event this year, none of the games seemed Halloween related.
What would be cool if there was a Turkey Chase Active Item for your Personal Space with its unique rewards. I would have fun chasing turkeys all day! I also love that music when the game starts up.

Most looking forward to the uproar update, hopefully they keep updating it over time. Thanksgiving event looks cool as well. Granzella is always bringing stuff here it seems but nothing that is really impressive so hopefully thatll change soon. Still curious about when the Intellivision arcades will release. I hope we get some cool surprises in the next 2 months of updates because other than Christmas and the acades, there really is not anything big that is known to be coming out yet.

Sooooooo….

When was the last Hub quest? MANY MONTHS AGO

When was the last time the ‘sale’ section of the Home store was updated? MANY MONTHS AGO

Why is it that all the sweet new locomotions and companions have animations that only the owner can see?!?!?! This is a HORRIBLE new trend that should be ceased immediately…Do the Home vendors actually think they are enticing sales of such items when owners friends can’t even see or enjoy it properly?!/!

Why can’t Home EVER have an updated message of the day on the day of the update rather than always reflecting last weeks data (i.e. halloween tiki mask ornament hopes for a false message about the adventure district joke hanging around when it was really gone…)

Venting finished for now…Thanks for hopefully listening!!

@tusunami…i totally agree.

can’t believe it’s almost 4 yrs since i’ve been on Home and to see it evolve is pretty cool….just wish they fix these bugs like the item prices that say “ERROR”…like the Avalon Dungeon and in the RaceOn Garage personal space, it says “ERROR” for the BeeBeeBots.

I love Home, but man do they need to nail down these technical issues that continue to plague Home.

the Panthabots remind me of the Voltron Lions and Ravage from the 80′s Transformer cartoons.

anyway, hopefully they will fix those price Errors this week.

    + Cade Peterson on November 13th, 2012 at 11:19 am said:

    We have a general policy to shy away from recycling rewards because those who already have them don’t feel special when a new holiday rolls around, and also because they’re not *new.* On the other hand, it’s not always easy to come up with fresh designs from year to year when the subconscious expectation all ties to very traditional concepts. But we try and keep it fresh, try new things as the community wishes. There is no Lord Pumpkinhead and no Turkey Chase this year due to strong community request. So we’re mixing it up a bit! I hope you like it.
