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.

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!
