Hey Cade, I wanted to mention something quick. I just got on Home the other day, first time in like a month of inactivity (Don’t hate on me) and I figured I’d explore that new map called Acorn Meadows Park. I must say, upon entering, I was quite impressed. The funny thing was, I saw people riding around on bicycles, and I didn’t know how to get one at the time, and I realized i have the green motorcycle locomotion, so i busted that out. My real point here is that it almost fills the spot that the Plaza once took up. Now, in my opinion nothing will ever replace the Plaza, but this map is absolutely magnificent. My favorite part, so far, is all of the food and drink stands, with the ability to eat & drink the stuff. Amazing map, really amazing! :)

    I’m very glad you’re enjoying Acorn Meadows Park. Our friends at VEEMEE made it, and they obviously put a lot of time and love into it, including unique details like the ice cream stand, trains you can ride, and even the dog park! They’ll be doing more with it in time, so keep your eyes peeled. Meanwhile, there are a ton of rewards in there to earn too to keep you entertained.

The updates look great in each week’s blog but…lately some of these items are more wishful thinking than anything else. I’m still waiting for the new dance moves that were shown in last week’s blog to show up in the store. How is it that theses blogs are posted later and later AFTER Home comes online, yet they are still wrong? The most frustrating thing is that after checking out the stores on Home and then viewing the blog, you can’t help but feel like you’ve missed something. This, as well as the fact that the freezing and lag are worse than ever, are the reasons that Home is beginning to lose its appeal for me. I sincerely hope that things change for the better soon. I used to really enjoy Home.

I was wondering, are we going to get the Deadly Premonition items in america? I own the game and would love to own the clothing too. Also, I know THQ went south, but do you know if there is still plans to bring Darksiders 2 gear to home? I saw something about it before, and more Lords Of Shadow gear from Mirror of Fate and 2 would be awesome! I am a huge Castlevania fan if you hadn’t figured from the name XD. Thank you very much Cade ^_^

    I have no news on either Deadly Premonition or Darksiders 2 content for Home, so I would assume no at this late date.

Still wanna see more Doctor Who and Pottermore. For Doctor Who I really want a Sonic Screwdriver girls can carry. For Pottermore I want wands and more spaces. If you guys could speed up load times I would probably spend a lot more time in home, specifically load times in the stores and even after purchases.

I really like the way you linked Pottermore with home, I would love to see more stuff like this.
