O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, jingle all the way. Don we now our gay apparel, fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, they never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games. He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice, faithful friends who are dear to us gather near to us once more. Oh Frosty the Snowman had to hurry on his way, to face unafraid the plans that we made, walking in a winter wonderland.
I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need, feliz navidad, prospero ano y felicidad. I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, soon it will be Christmas day! Oh-ho-ho, who wouldn’t go, but since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. I’ll be home for Christmas, and I’m gonna tell my dad.
Merry Christmas, all right? Do the right thing. You put up the dang lights and answer What Are You Playing.
And a partridge in a pear tree.
Bonus question: What do you have planned for December 26th? Boxing day, if you will.
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): The holidays have been so busy this year, I’ll probably only do Pokemon Go and Let’s Go for exercise when I’m not catching up on sleep. Hope ya’ll are having some happy holidays!
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Won’t be gaming much this weekend – I’ll probably flip my Star Wars Galaxies Legends harvies and factories one more time, but then it’s off to holiday fun. My kids are finally getting their Switch! And that means so am I!
As for the 26th? Traveling traveling traveling.
Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): I’ve had something of a personal epiphany with Warframe, as suddenly all of the game’s systems and how to actually make reasonable character progress suddenly became clear to me, so that will certainly be part of my gaming diet. There’s also some pressure to try and get my Astrologian through the Stormblood story and later patch updates in Final Fantasy XIV now that Patch 4.5 has an arrival date. There’s also my continuing guided adventure in Star Citizen, a bit more critter hitting in Monster Hunter World, and even some Forza Horizon 4 now and again as I explore Fortune Island.
Then, on Boxing Day, I’ll be celebrating the grand Welsh tradition of “cael cipyn rhydd” or “taking a freaking nap” as explained to me by my husband. Far be it for me to rattle tradition.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): My patch ramp-up plans are ready in Final Fantasy XIV, there are end-of-year freebies in Granblue Fantasy… I should have plenty of stuff to do this weekend, really.
As for boxing day? Unadulterated gaming and relaxing with my wife. Naught else.
Pierre, patron: We heard a lot recently about The Division 2 and consequently, I felt some kind of urge to go back to The Division. So I will clean up the mess in the streets of Manhattan this weekend. I also decided to play a FPS series I’ve never played before, just because my gaming culture was missing it somehow. So this weekend, I’ll start paying Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox, a bundle of the 4 first Halo games, in their remastered editions for the first two. I’ll let you know what I think about these famous FPS games.
On the MMO front, I’m struggling to reinstall Final Fantasy XI and hoping I’ll be able to retrieve all my account IDs so I can go back to what was my very first MMO, call it nostalgia if you want. Does someone know about some voodoo stuff to make sure everything goes well with the login IDs? Enjoy your gaming weekend MOP readers and Merry Christmas in advance to all of you
