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™

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.

I'm glad that the Amiibo stock situation got much better. Because Hasbro sure as hell didn't get the memo with their Marvel Legends figures. These two seem more elusive than a western Lucina Amiibo!

Seeing as how SMT is nowhere near as massively popular as Pokemon, this probably won't become a thing. Still, I'm curious about whoever's favorite demon/persona. Mine's probably Trumpeter! Without 'em, I would've never aced P4G on Very Hard.

Playing Tearaway Unfolded without glasses on makes it looks even prettier, gives it a glossy papercraft or almost dreamlike feel to it.

I scanned some pages from issues of Nintendo Power from the early 90's and saw this back cover ad. I thought it would be appropriate to post today. Who's everyone rooting for tonight?
