Well its the end of another wonderful year and its time to party like its 2012! Weren’t we all supposed to have flying cars and hoverboards by now? We hope that the new year brings joy to all and don’t worry about all that whole Mayan calendar thing. They have probably just been trolling us this whole time. Right? Well I may still build a shelter but I’m sure you’ll be fine.
Good news! Holiday Elf Weaverbird is back to normal. Well as close to normal as he can get. There were some scary times in there. At one point he thought he was Adam Jensen and believed that he had all these cool augmentations. But that came to an end when he tried to “hack the system” by sticking his finger in an electrical socket. Now if only we could get him to stop singing Friday.

We were finally able to go tobogganing today. While we were on the mountain we came across a lone samurai trying to charge into town. He wasn’t making it very far down the ice covered slopes so we thought we would offer him a ride. Only he wouldn’t leave his horse behind. Have you ever tried to get a horse on a toboggan? It was not easy but I think once we started moving the horse had fun. Tappet kept calling the horse “Dolphin”, the Samurai didn’t seem too please by that.

What better way to start the New Year with some Player vs Player slaughtering? We have started to work out a PvP Tournament system and it should be here soon! The tournament games will be different from PvP games. Because rewards can be won the contest must be one of pure skill, not who is the highest level, has the best units or the biggest deploy capacity.
For that reason the deploy capacity and a unit pool will be predetermined when the Tournament is set up. You can put together your army from this unit pool, but you cannot use your own units. You can still determine your own personal strategy with your personal army build. There will be varying pools available for different tournaments. Heroes are excluded from the tournaments, to ensure higher level players don’t get an unfair advantage.
<b>Rewards and Prizes</b>
To enter the tournament there will be a fee, to ensure players are serious. Of course, there will be a lot of rewards as well! Each round will have a reward for the players that made it to that round (by winning the previous round). As you reach higher tiers in the tournament, the rewards become better and better. Of course there will be some grand prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place! But wait, there is more! Those who participate in the PVP tournament will also be earning PvP points, which add to your overall PvP score on the leaderboard. The scores will be a lot higher than regular PvP matches!
<b>Resolving Cheats and Exploits</b>
We are working to resolve issues, such as closing the battle window and various bugs. Any cheating will result in being removed from the tournament with no refund. We will be monitoring the events closely.
We're running a video contest, along with Andrew Vanden Heuvel (an online physics & astronomy teacher with the Michigan Virtual School), calling for students and gamers alike to create videos demonstrating physics principles via Osmos.
First prize is a $500 Amazon gift certificate, and there will be a few runner-up prizes as well. We're pretty excited about helping to encourage education via gaming, and hope you'll participate!
There has been a dramatic rise in snow people assassinations this holiday season. We believe this is the work of a professional. An eye witness to one of the tragic scenes reports that “He stabbed them in the head with blades in his arms. Blades coming out of his arms I tell you! It was crazy! Then he just ran off and jumped in a haystack. He may still be there but I’d be careful about checking it.” Please be on the look out for anybody wearing what has been described as “a really cool bathrobe with a hood”. If you see this individual please call the authorities as soon as possible and do not approach him.
