Merry Deus Xmas everyone!

Only 24 days to go until Christmas... and counting. Woooot! :cool:

Even if you don't celebrate this festival but enjoy all the trimmings, no reason why you can't join in too! :p


So, let's see some Xmas-related fun in here.
It can be anything you like, from sharing jokes, quotes, stories, funny captions, recipes, wishlist etc.... absolutely anything, so long as it has a Christmas twist; and even better with a DX twist too. ;)




I'll start with the decoration of what can only be the DX Christmas Tree. :D

Hehe, great thread. I do have one kind of relevant Christmas story which may derail this thread a bit, but perhaps we can share Christmas game stories.

It was December 24 in...1998(?), and I was working at Electronics Boutique. Crappy to work on Christmas Eve but at least the store closed early that day. Anyway, oddly enough on this exact day both Baldur's Gate and Starsiege: Tribes arrived in the store for the first time. I can't remember if those were their exact release dates but I do remember seeing them in the store for the first time on that day and buying them. Anyway, one game ended up being better than the other (*cough*baldursgate*cough*) but I do remember being in the middle of an online match in Tribes, with it's crappy pre-patch 'net code, and being yelled at to leave the computer and come join the family.

*sigh* Good times!

Yes indeed....:cool:

I was thinking about doing this myself but it won't be easy to make it 'clever', so I'm looking forward to reading this Chrismas Jingle from any volunteers, hehe.

Maybe the song could start something like: "On the twelfth day of Christmas, Eidos gave to me:..." ?

OK well I had this idea and thought it was funny...now that may just be the exam studying until 2 in the morning or something, but I decided to whip this up real quick. The true inspiration was making the floating dot an ornament. Sorry for the low quality, again, 2 in the morning and tired and MS Paint.
It was hanging on a string, but then I thoughtlessly filled the whole background with black. I'll redo this tomorrow, it is TOO early...
