Ho, ho, ho, and Merry Christmas!
Christmas is a wonderful time of year. If you’re in the north then you get to enjoy snow, hot drinks, the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree. If you’re south of the equator, it means blistering hot weather, beer, and the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree.
Christmas is a time for good food, family, and friends. It’s a time for celebration, and Christmas is the time of year where it’s okay to be a kid all over again, and count down the days to gifts and celebrations one day at a time. Each year we get into the spirit of the season ourselves with a countdown of our own; the 24 Games of Christmas!

A spanking new video game console is one of the most rousing gifts you can unwrap on Christmas. The promise of new adventures and a fancy box to sit under the TV collecting dust generates a tangible excitement. Surely that means Megadimension Neptunia VII, the latest in a series of games that anthropomorphises game consoles from Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, is the finest gift around.
If you’re still following my twisted logic here, congratulations. The point is that Megadimension Neptunia is a JRPG well worth playing over the holidays. The Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise saw several releases this year, but Megadimension Neptunia VII is the first main series entry in a while and brings the series up to date on PS4. It presents three highly unique scenarios through which to experience gags and satire of the video game industry. It also happens to boast some surprisingly heartwarming moments of camaraderie that offer an emotional response in tune with the holiday spirit.
