Finally getting the teahouse after 5 arduous weeks..I’ll still be buying everything, but that sure was painful.

Sci punk clothing is a nice surprise, glad it’s not a teaser! Those clothes seem like my style so I’ll definitely be checking them out.

Emo Ray seems kind of silly, but I’m just glad for something new to do in home that’s not “gang warfare” related. so I’ll be trying this as well.

And yay, the squid from space finally…I don’t buy many pets anymore because I’m always using LMO’s, but these are a must have for me..so cute!

Also…I forgot to mention how glad I am to see the Granzella party dresses and overalls releasing simultaneously with EU! I’m not buying either of them (dresses will be too popular, overalls not my style) but let’s hope these synchronized releases continue!

Xi news is amazing. This is going to regenerate the Home Community with a level of excitement that we were longing for again. Can’t wait to see what the story line is going to be all about.

And I love the new GZ content coming as well along with many of the other new items. So much content. Hopefully we’ll see some improvements to wardrobe because buying things is one thing but organizing and finding what you’ve purchased needs to be made easier.

I also hope we’d get to see some new public space content from Granzella especially their Neon Downtown. Wish some news or hints relative to that release could be forthcoming.

    Some weeks are more generous than others, and this is one spectacular week. Between Emo Ray and Xi, it’s a great deal of news.

    As for hints from Granzella, you know how they are, but I would bet that more content of theirs will come, including public spaces.

Emo Ray Vs. The Intergalactic Teddy Bears
A game I’ll probably pass on due to having to be an Emo instead of a cat. Also makes me wish Sony bought Rare.

nDreams – Xi: Continuum Teaser
Looks neat….

Lockwood Publishing – Maliki Lion Mount
I already own it thanks to x7. Now if they could find a way to make a Dragon Mount I’d think that would really embarrass the one already out from someone else.

Emo Ray Vs. The Intergalactic Teddy Bears:
Looks great!! The NPC interactions is something I hope to see more of in future, and more story-driven games and events. This is something I’ve always wanted for Home, so I’ll have to check it out.

Question — If we purchase the Emo Ray game, will we gain access to everything including future Volumes and Episodes for free to play or buy separately?

    It is purely episodic, so as each volume or episode comes out, each will have to be purchased individually.

I also would like to know when we are getting the “Cowboy Dances” (Gangnam Style Dances) in USA Playstation Home. The cowboy dances have been in Europe for over a month. Does Europe have the copyright for “Cowboys”? Are we going to have to wait until Gangnam Style is no longer relavent before we get the cowbody dances? Like we got the Charlie Sheen “WINNING” T-shirts after nobody cared about it anymore.

Emo Ray is going to be epic. Lots of rewards, lots of side quests and chapters to complete. Has a lot of great things in it never seen in Home before, going to be a lot of fun to play.
Like the look of those dresses from Granzella, may need to check those out.
I also like the they are adding new stuff regularly to Tycoon, but where are the restaurants and grocery stores and the like? I guess these people all eat donuts and veggies to survive, lol.

Now this is a first, an episodic story-driven game for Playstation Home! I didn’t know that could happen. I bet it’s going to be fun! How much with the volumes cost when available?

Also, was that Jess I saw?! Is she returning? I bet I know what’s happening! Xi 2! I enjoyed and beaten that adventure, and now, there’s going to be more of it!? Amazing! More Jess, more mystery, more adventure, more puzzles, more Xi! I don’t know how to say this, but, I will say this out of excitement… the mystery continues!

Oh! Any new missions and adventures from Novus Prime yet? Home Tycoon, I like, but who could forget the greatest space battles for Earth in Novus Prime yet? I want to see more new missions, battle new bosses and enemies, and gain new rewards to boost the cause of defense against the enemy! Maybe I would like to travel to a strange world not seen before! How’s that for a mission suggestion?

Thanks for keeping Home amazing by adding a lot of new stuff and more!

P.S, Midway 4 soon? I would like to see more new Midway carny games and win more new prizes! Keep the fun going! Bring Midway 4 on!

The money Sony give to Home, could be going to make new IP’s, AAA games.

I HOPE THE CHRISTMAS EVENT CHALLENGE THIS YEAR. last years challenge sent home users in a mad frenzy trying to get the rewards. and it would be nice to see more challenges that motivate users rather than some new home space that as absolutely no reason to visit.
