The Daily Hotness: Creepy Santa

Well folks, it’s that time of year again. It’s time to dress up your children in their finest holiday clothes, drag them to a busy mall, and take their picture sitting on an old man’s lap. Not just any old man! An old man that dresses up like an elf! It’s a fun tradition, but there are tons of terrible pictures that come from it. If you want to see a bunch of these pictures, go to www.creepysantaphotos.com (they are really creepy).

We don’t have anyone on staff dressed up like an elf (yet), but we do have some fun stuff for you today. There are previews of VVVVV and Colors! 3D for the 3DS, a review of Fate/Extra, a new episode of Podtoid that reveals the true nature of Elton John, some chatting about The Old Republic, Skyrim gets another patch, EA sings you a Christmas carol, and tons of other cool things.

Now it’s time for me to dress up like Santa and scare children.
