Happy Holidays (Burp!)

I ate that snowman too.

Oh, hullo! So I guess I should probably post something. Having recently recovered from extensive stomach reconstructing surgery, after Kieron so brutally ripped through my duodenum, I’m finally well enough to have returned and eaten the entire RPS team. Which of course means they’re getting a well-earned rest until my January 4th annual movement. In the meantime, why not take a look through this list of features they’ve produced over the years, or maybe just go on a rampage killing and eating as many innocents as you can. Oh, and take a look at their advent calendar now it’s all finished. I’ll post it above.

Merry Christmas all!

    That goodness you’re alright! I was pretty worried Mr. That Killed Kieron.

    On another note, any recommendations on what read while the Hivemind are lazing around in stomach acid?

  2. CMaster says:

    Question – what is it about games journalists that tastes so good?
    Also, did you get to play any of those games you read about last time while recuperating?

    • Persus-9 says:

      You know how some humans like to eat veal? Some monsters like to eat games journalists for pretty much the same reasons.

  3. Alexander Norris says:

    I’ll have option B, please – nothing to communicate the good ol’ holiday spirit like a murdering rampage across suburbia.

    Merry Christmas, RPS!

  4. LionsPhil says:

    Merry Christmas, unholy abomination against God!

  5. Fede says:

    Nooooo, not the Snowman! (see alt-text)

  6. Sparvy says:

    Damn it, now I have to spend time with my family instead. Damn Christmas.

  7. Jakkar says:

    Merry Christmas, RPS and readers..

    May your digital stockings be swollen with goodness, meant in the most obscene way possible.

  8. Nobody Important says:

    Don’t eat your advent calender all in one sitting. That stuff tastes nasty when you eat a lot of it.

    Merry Christmas, everyone. Watch Steam’s daily deals like a hawk!

  9. Davee says:

    Indeed, happy holidays/merry xmas everybody!

    And you better spit those journalists out Mr. Monster, you don’t know where they’ve been! And how will we now get our daily doses of gaming-news you egoist?!

    It feels like I have misunderstood something, but I don’t know what…

  31. crumbsucker says:

    Also offtopic: yay for Google ads instead of the slowly loading and obnoxious flash thingies. A nice christmas present, i hope it stays that way.

  32. invisiblejesus says:

    Merry Christmas, folks. Even you limeys. Mostly. :P

  33. Juror #9 says:

    I think this year i’ll go back and try and reinstall my copies of Burn Cycle and BioForge just to remember the first 2 games i owened. Ahh the good ‘ol days.

  34. Diogo Ribeiro says:

    Merry Christmas, everyone :D

  35. DJ Phantoon says:

    He didn’t learn his lesson at all! Kieron is just gonna burst through his stomach again.

  36. What's Kieron Got In His Hand? says:

    I wonder if Kieron’s prepared himself this time. Because I hear nowadays he keeps a shiv on his person at all times.

    With so many online Tiffany 1837casinos coming and going, and with so many cons and scams surfacing on the internet everyday, one needs to be especially careful when registering one’s credit card with or transferring money to an online casino. The above set of guidelines may not completely safeguard a player’s money, but they are nevertheless a good set of common sense points to go by when choosing an online casino to play at.

    Software: Casino softwarehttp://www.besttiffanynow.co.uk providers such as Microgaming, Playtech, Random Logic, Real Time Gaming and WaterLogic are very popular and have excellent reputations in the online gambling industry.

  39. LionsPhil says:

    That captcha’s working well, then.

  40. Chaz says:

    It must have taken Christmas off.

    And whilst I’m here, what is it with all this “Happy Holidays” nonsense. Xbox Live has also been peddling this politically correct, non cultural specific seasonal greeting for a couple of years now. Get a grip!

    Its Christmas FFS!
