We apparently missed one release in our Now Playing list for this week: 8-bit Xmas 2009 for the NES. The cart was apparently constructed entirely from new parts and -- aside from incorporating the festive light display you see above -- is actually a fully functional NES game.

The celebrations are over, the dinner is eaten, and the underside of the tree is cleared. It's the end of the holiday season, and if you want to be morbid it's also the furthest possible point until more Christmas. But the day after the event is usually all but an extension of the holiday -- we r...

It's Christmas day for those of you who celebrate it, and whatever your focus today is, presents are sure to be involved in some way, shape, or form. Real-life presents aren't the only things being exchanged -- the gifts are flying in MMO-land as well. You'll find packages with pretty wrapping in...

It looks like MapleStory isn't the only one seeking to draw in some new players over the holidays. Free Realms has released two eye-catching television commercials, set to air over the holidays. Both spots aim for a thirty second intro to all things Free Realms, with the first one focusing on hol...

Update: And we have a winner! Congratulations, Brian M! Buying games is always fun -- and we've made it easy with our Holiday Buyer's Guides -- but it's even better to receive them ... in one gigantic stack!
