Destineer has some Christmas minigames gift for you

8:30 PM on 10.15.2009 // Colette Bennett

Man, let me tell you what I did NOT want for Christmas is a collection of holiday themed minigames, but you know, you say "minigames" and there's someone just waiting to make a Wii game for you. I guess I should be more optimistic -- if I had a kid, we could play Destineer's new We Wish You A Merry Christmas with them and they could meet Santa Claus in the game, therefore taking away all his mystique and proving to them he is definitely not a real person.

The game features six minigames including Deck The Halls, Santa's Sleigh, Hot Chocolate and more. It'll be out on October 27th, so you can buy it early and keep it as a stocking stuffer. Don't be surprised if the person you give it to gives you a box of reindeer poop the following year, though.

Destineer Announces We Wish You a Merry Christmas for Wii™

Christmas Games & Activities for the Whole Season!

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – October 15, 2009 - Here’s the Christmas present you can open a month early! We Wish You a Merry Christmas for Wii™ includes a variety of holiday-themed games and activities that will provide hours of magical Christmas moments for the whole family throughout the holiday season.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas includes 13 holiday-themed activities, including games like Candy Cane Lanes, Present Catch, Elf Hunt and more. Unlock new activities and count down the days to Christmas in the included Advent Calendar, write letters to Santa and lead your family in beloved Christmas carols.  All of the games and activities support up to 4 players.

Six Christmas Games:

    * Santa’s Sleigh: Collect presents with the Wii Remote™ and help deliver them to houses.

    * Hot Chocolate: A memory game in which you keep the elves warm by quickly pouring and delivering mugs of hot chocolate.

    * Candy Cane Lanes: As Santa, you bowl down a lane towards funny elves.

    * Present Catch: Play as an elf, catching all the bouncing presents and avoiding obstacles with the Wii Remote™.
 
    * Reindeer Games: Santa’s reindeer hold a special flying contest to see who can lead Santa’s sleigh each year.

    * Deck The Halls: Match 3 and win!

Advent Calendar: Unlock a new door each day in December until Christmas to receive additional items such as new carols, ornaments for the tree, stickers and decorations for the living room.

If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!
