Reverb Communications is a PR agency that handles products like Rock Band. This year's holiday card is a little political...
Inside: "Merry Christmas from Barack O'Clause, spreading the Holiday wealth..."
SCEA broke out LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy to bring the Holiday charm. The card folds into a triptych (seen below at left), and brings the following message:
"Wishing You Peace On Our LittleBigPlanet!
From your friends at Sony Computer Entertainment America"
Square Enix sent a card featuring Kingdom Hearts' Sora, dressed in Santa gear. How adorable. Guess it's to celebrate all the new Kingdom Hearts games coming out on PS2, DS and PSP.
Inside: "From our hearts to yours"
This isn't just LucasArts! It's "Warm thoughts for a joyous Holiday Season from the Lucasfilm family," creators of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones film series.
Also, "A donation has been made to DrawBridge, which provides art education programs to homeless children and youth around the greater San Francisco Bay Area." Nice touch, Lucas folks!
Remember Super Mario Bros. on the NES? The Minus World sent us a personalized Christmas card, modeled after NES boxart of yesteryear.
Blizzard Entertainment, makers of World of Warcraft and Starcraft have this strange Christmas message:
Happiness is always remembering ... even the *naughty* can play nice!
(Is that a naughty Santa joke?)
Yeah, 2K Games sent us a Christmas card. But they also sent us a gift! Little Sister, from BioShock has now been immortalized into a figurine. Thanks, 2K!
The popular video game webcomic sent out this, er, unique Christmas card.
Inside: "Happy holidays from Penny Arcade"
Konami, makers of the Metal Gear Solid series, surprised us by not having any giant nuclear missile launching robots in its Christmas card. Perhaps that goes against the "Peace on Earth" message they're promoting this year.
Inside: "Best Wishes for Peace and Joy this Holiday Season and a New Year of Health, Happiness and Prosperity."
If you played Fallout 3, you probably know this isn't a very good idea.
Inside: "Happy Holidays from all your friends at Bethesda Softworks"
Atlus sent us this Christmas card, right after they finished making Persona 4, one of the last great games to grace the PS2.
Dood! NIS America sent a Christmas card, filled with their adorable penguin mascots, the Prinnies. This card is as adorable as the title of their upcoming PSP game: Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?
From the developers of Universe at War. Inside: "From our world to yours"
Foundation 9, developers of games like Silent Hill Homecoming and Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, sent out a CD of ChipTune holiday music from people like Doctor Octoroc, 8-Bit Weapon, Computeher, Leeni, and others. Swanky!
GameTap is an online service which allows users to access a large library of classic and new games on their PC.
This one is a bit subtle. Look at the snowflakes. You'll see they spell out XSEED. This niche game company is shipping Populous and Retro Game Challenge for the DS.
Empire's catalog is rather diverse, including games like Hello Kitty, Pipe Mania, Jackass and Full Metal Alchemist.
Tecmo's team got dressed up for Tecmo Bowl in this holiday card. Considering the company's reputation, we're sort of sad there's no girls and booze featured in this card.
"A donation has been provided to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in lieu of printing and mailing traditional greeting cards."
That's really getting into the holiday spirit, Torpex.
P.S. Please make your next game easier. Schizoid made our brains hurt!
This postcard was printed with soy ink on recycled paper! How "green" of you, D3!
The ECA fights for gamers' rights. You can check them out here.
We don't know much about Game Mechanic Studios yet. Perhaps this card is hinting that their first game will be about skiing.
Note: Nyko's fancy card had some silver ink which didn't scan properly. It looks much classier than this.
Alex Mercer? Who's that? Guess we better watch these Prototype videos to find out.
Nothing says Christmas like Vin Diesel.
38 Studios' is Todd McFarlane and R. A. Salvatore's foray into gaming. This holiday card doesn't give us much insight into what they're doing.
