The 12 Games of Christmas: World of Goo

By RPS on December 25th, 2008.

To quote from the great prophet: IT’S CHRIIIIIIISSSSSSSSTTTTTTMAAAAASSSS!!!! What we really need is a really, really good game. In fact, our game of the year.

The 12 Games of Christmas: Left 4 Dead

By RPS on December 24th, 2008.

Ah, look to the streets. Hordes shambling the streets, looking for last minute bargains. Why, it’s almost enough to make you want to write some kind of satire where the consumers become monsters of some kind. But what kind of monsters?

12 Games of Christmas: King’s Bounty

By Alec Meer on December 24th, 2008.

That King Herod, eh? Mass killings of youngsters? Both a king and totally mental is highly biblical, if not Christmasy. I wonder if there’s a game anything like that?

By Alec Meer on December 23rd, 2008.

What has tinsel got to do with Christmas anyway? I’m pretty sure Bethlehem wasn’t big on coloured foil. No matter – what does matter is what game lurks beneath its festive glint.

The 12 Games of Christmas: Spore

Mysterypics!

What’s that on the horizon? A storm of controversy, you say? Better batten down the hatches and man the lighthouse, we got some dark times ahead.

By RPS on December 18th, 2008.


We’ve not taken our medicine today, so things might seem a little woozy. Perhaps there’s some drugs behind this latest window?

The 12 Games of Christmas: Audiosurf

By RPS on December 16th, 2008.

Whatever could be beneath that tasteful festive wrapping paper? It might be a shiny red bicycle, or a Scaletrix set, or perhaps a partially asphyxiated puppy. It’s probably some sort of videogame, though. Be a bit silly if not, really.

So, for the fifth game of Christmas, my true blog gave to me…

The 12 Games Of Christmas: GRID

By RPS on December 2nd, 2008.

We’re not content with just one high-concept ultromegoXmasfeature this year, oh no. As well as a wry look at the year that was, we’ve also distilled the many, many games we enjoyed over the course of 2008 into a mere 12. Why? Because 12 is a Christmassy number, dummkopf. It does mean there have been sacrifices. We mourn for the games that did not make the cut, and will never forget them. Somehow, though, we’ve managed to agree on this shortlist. So, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, we’ll be doing our Best 2008 Ever thingy, and on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays it’s long-form natters about our fave games. Exciting!
