Seasons Greetings From Valve

How can we not post this?

Merry Thankmas, Gametrailers

Did they get a choir to sing it, or is it magical digital music? I’m too inept to know. What matters is that they bothered.

  3. Tom says:

  4. SteveTheBlack says:

    It would be hard to overstate my satisfaction at this video.

  5. dartt says:

    And GlaDOS bless us! Every one!

  7. Chis says:

    That did just make my day. Christy! I hate flu.

  8. Stew says:

    They’ll just keep on trying until they run out of cake.

  9. roBurky says:

    I hadn’t noticed the first few times I’d been linked to that, but the decorations on the tree are the TF2 characters in taunt poses. Awesome.

  10. Martin says:

    Can someone confirm that Zygorator isn’t yanking everyones chain? I’ve watched the bloody thing ten times in a row and can’t find anything that changes.

    That could of course just be me being blind so you don’t need to tell me what changes – as we lack spoiler tags, just that something changes.

  11. Zygorator says:

    Ah! just checked again, and it seems to happen randomly.

  12. go says:

    didn’t find any changes

  13. The Fanciest Of Pants says:

    Once again we get awesome fan service from Valve that somehow TOTALLY avoids being ass-kissy. Gods among men.

  14. go says:

    well, it somehow didnt work in my browser (just stopped looping after ca 20 times), but you are supposed to see this:

    I was totally expecting G-man, though…

  15. Zeh says:

    Zygorator: it’s random, 1 chance in 15 of happening.

  16. Seniath says:

    Adorable on so many levels, from the Santa sign, to the gnome, to, well, everything really.

  17. steve says:

    Valve is great!

  18. Alex says:

    I literally JUST finished Portal (Blasphemy, I know, but I just borrowed the Orange Box off a friend… I’m poor.)

    Now I understand everything you were all saying!
    That … song!

    Must… fight … urge … to replay!
    So many other games!

  20. Peewee says:

    Yeah.. ugh. Kind of them, but pretty effortless.

  21. Veri says:

    I find that pretty neat, and considering what with everyone whining about everything in TF2 and who knows what else, I appreciate their effort for the small gesture.

  22. FaceOmeter says:

    Love the gnome. Fly, my pretty one!

  23. Andrew B says:

    I was looking for the TF2 content in the scene, because I saw one of the stockings had its logo.
    I then realized the characters were all the ornaments on the tree.

    Yay Valve!

  24. lalahsghost says:

    Why are there [Supply] crates in this portal video unless this is some kind of non-time paradox clue?

  25. Kaltano says:

    I -love- the turret tucked behind the crates in the darkness watching over bait… the cake is a lie!

    Most overrated shit. Evar.
