Unraveling the Christmas Cinematic Universe

There is a house down the street from me that looks like the seasonal section at K-Mart ejaculated over its front yard. There is Santa, Mrs. Claus, Rudolph, Frosty, some gingerbread men, birds, presents, a Shrek for some goddamn reason; all...


You can nab Watch Dogs for free on Uplay right now

Ubisoft was already giving out some games for the holidays, but now that offer has been extended a bit. Instead of ending on the 18th like previously mentioned, you can now nab both World in Conflict and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag alon...


Clean sweep victory in Splatoon 2's final Splatfest of 2017

You know what I got for Christmas last year? Try nothing. You know what I'm getting for Christmas this year? You got it. Yet here they are, the good folk of the Splatoon community, bitchin' about sweaters and socks. I'd kill for sweaters an...


Christmas games that aren't Christmas games

Quite shamefully, I only saw Die Hard for the first time two years ago, in December and in a packed movie theatre. It was only then that I could fully appreciate the classic argument that rages about the film. No, not whether Hans Gruber is...


Christmas comes early to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

One of my favorite things about the Animal Crossing series is how it handles the different seasons. I haven't seen real snow in years so it's always nice to have a game I can pop in during the winter if I ever want to build a snowman o...


It's fun to read too much into Nicalis's Christmas Card

Nicalis is well known for staging elaborate stunts to keep their fans guessing. The recent Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth ARG, headed up by Edmund McMillen, is just one recent example.  Knowing that the company has the tendency to embed ...


Deck the halls and then watch team Rainbow knock them down

Ubisoft is jumping on the Christmas gaming event bandwagon by giving players the chance to earn some festive gear in Rainbow Six Siege. From the looks of it, this all involves using Uplay's built-in challenge system to fill in some progress...


It's beginning to look a lot like Smissmas in Team Fortress 2

Not to get all morbid here right before Christmas, but sometimes, I feel like the odds aren't terrible that Team Fortress 2 will outlive me. (Well, all of us, really.) Valve's eternal team-based shooter is chugging along with updates, and t...


First annual Steam awards nominees have been finalized

Y'know what, guys? Turns out Steam is pretty popular. Over 15 million people participated in nominating games for the Steam awards this year. That's pretty good for a set of awards that didn't exist and no one knew about a few weeks ago. Vo...


Planet Coaster has a big free winter update

Winter levels are some of my favorite themed levels in video games. Don't get me wrong, I could go the rest of my life without ever setting foot in snow again, and that'd be a life well lived. But in games? The sights and sounds are whimsi...


Best Xbox One S and PS4 system bundle deals for Christmas

The dog-eat-dog Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are over, but not all console discounts are finished. Xbox One and PS4 deals still exist in this week of limbo between the last ramp up to Christmas as we're less than two weeks away from the ...


Hitman's holiday mission stars the Home Alone bandits

IO Interactive is giving us a compelling reason to revisit Hitman's Paris fashion show level today with a Christmas makeover and the Holiday Hoarders mission. Peter gave us the rundown already, but there is one specific note to bring up. Th...


Overwatch's winter update is now live

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event has just begun, and both PC and console players should now have access to the most recent update. In addition to the expected holiday themed skins, sprays, highlight intros and emotes, there's also a new ...


Overwatch data mining implies winter event is in the works

While most of the focus of the new update on Overwatch's Public Test Realm (PTR) has been on the changes to Symmetra, it looks like some other data for the upcoming patch may have given away Overwatch's next holiday event. Reddit user Venxa...
