Christmas is on the way! It’s time to adorn the tree with dazzling lights, bust out the obligatory TV specials, and gobble festive treats faster than the chef in your family can put them down. More importantly, it’s a precious opportunity to ditch your routine and bask in the company of those you hold dearest.
There might not be snow banks to leap into depending on your geographic coordinates, but video games under a blanket can provide fun with 100 per cent less mess (barring severe eggnog mishaps). It wouldn’t be Christmas at DDNet without our requisite list of games to keep you warm and cozy for the holidays. Each day until Christmas, we’ll highlight a title that’s perfect for passing the time, bonding with friends, or stuffing in your buddy’s stocking.
Join us on this 24 day adventure as we count down to the most wonderful time of the year. Merry Christmas!
Game #10: Soulcalibur VI
Virtually pummeling your friends in a fighting game is good fun and all, but sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the violence. Yes, even in a fighting game. With Soulcalibur VI’s custom character creator, it’s possible to sit down with your pals and pool together your creative energy to create rather than destroy. You can team up to assemble anyone you want, be that a superhero, an iconic figure, or the friend who couldn’t make the party. If you want to be banished to Santa’s naughty list for eternity, you can recreate one of the innumerable abominations posted online.
Sure, you’ll go back and use your creations to beat each other up immediately thereafter, but those custom characters will live on in your hard drive as a memory of holiday fun.
