Monday AAR - The Final Pre-Christmas Update
It's ChristmasWeek, gamerfriends. Next week, it'll be NewYearWeek. The week after that, it'll be 2012--The Year After The Year Duke Nukem Forever Came Out. It'll be kind of like The Day After Tomorrow, only with less death and destruction. Same amount of calamity, though.
I finally made a Duke Forever joke on a blog! I am officially a Cool Game Blogger. I can die happy now.
Here's what's been happening this week:
- Christmas Truce: Our regularly scheduled Skirmish Sundays will end for the rest of 2011 to give us all some time to attend to our social obligations, and to be with our families and loved ones. Rest assured, though, that we'll be back to breaking heads come the new year. Remember, the server shall still be available to play on anytime you want! We just might not be around to organize the game.
- The giveaway: Due to sudden real-life developments, we were unable to announce a winner for the first Sunday of the OMGeek Holiday Giveaway. No worries, because we are going to do it later today! What's more, anyone whose postcount made it to 15 since last night has been included in the draw! There's at least one of you who just made it. You know who you are! Just be sure to reply to the thread within 24 hours if your name is chosen as this week's winner.
- The Book of Unwritten Tales: I know it's been a while, but the review for The Book of Unwritten Tales (BOUT) will have to wait a bit more. I've been playing it and it is surprisingly hilarious for a game not originally written in the language I'm playing it in. The game knows its adventure game heritage, and it exercises just enough self-awareness to be funny and endearing. Anyway, if you know someone who's into adventure games, BOUT is a fine gift idea. It's currently 20% off at www.unwritten-tales.com. If you buy the game, you'll get an additional gift coupon for a 20% discount to give to a friend. They'll get an additional 20% discount on top of the already discounted sale price!
And that's it, really. Things have been slowing down ever since the holiday season began to creep up on us all. I hope you all get some well-deserved rest. We'll be updating with more OMGeek-related news as it happens.
