Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Secret Santa is weird like that. Last year Isy got matched to me. Two uk participants is odd enough, two uk participants 25 minutes from each other is bizarre.

    one year i got matched up to someone who lived about 30 minutes away from me, and i dropped off their gift on their porch in a gift bag. i think i scared them somewhat :D

    Didn't someone get a trash bag of gifts left on their porch last year?

    Yeah, that was me.

    True... but only if you're santa! because I'm not quite sure who santa was. If there's any clues to santa's identity, customs detained them for humane "not-torture" en route. but anyway, no worries!

    alright where do I start...

    what the hell happened to this box?
    Spoiler:

    everything inside appeared intact though but not in any sort of packing whatsoever... there was half an empty red box smashed, some ribbon and a few bags on the bottom though.

    spoils of the canadian wilds.
    Spoiler:

    fun fact, in America we have rockets and they're called smarties. what you call smarties are strange and confusing! I've tried the Big R Turk which confused the hell out of me when i first bit into it. Then the girl I'm seeing who studied in Turkey explained what Turkish Delights are but was surprised because she never had chocolate covered ones. Unfortunately she couldn't try them because the package said may contain tree nuts and I'd rather not murder her.
    Spoiler:
    I don't know what this Tim Horton's is but I hear it mentioned a lot. Will put the coffee and mug to use in the morning to taste some fresh brewed canada.
    Spoiler:
    how the hell is this a flavor? That doesn't explain what the chips are at all!
    Spoiler:
    Now this is a flavor! I understand what I'm getting into right away.
    Spoiler:
    This is either one big ass hexagon toblerone or six normal ones. Either way that's enough toblerone to last for, what like an hour? It'll be glorious.
    Spoiler:
    I'll try to eat this later. For now, I'll give it a spin. I've been wanting to play this game for a while, but moving earlier in the year disrupted my playing of new games a bit. I'm excited! I love games that make stealth viable but don't treat you like you failed if shit hits the fan. and the setting and art to this are gorgeous and I'm excited!
    Spoiler:
    he wasn't interested at first but once he realized i'd pulled a bunch of food out he was all about the box.

    (I'm secretly most excited to try to coffee crisp. It sounds delicious.)

    edit: shit i forgot to take a picture of the tim horton's ornament. At first I thought it was more chocolate then i realized it was way too solid... and also it was wearing sunglasses. I'll update the post soon.

    This is all awesome stuff and I can shortly blame canada for diabetes. The only thing missing is Santa's identity!

    It is I! From the heart of Canadian hell I stab at thee!!

    And yes, I may or may not have, but definitely did, forget to enclose the note. I apologize. It wasn't much of a note, just revealing my identity and why I chose a couple of the items. But now I can tell you here and the rest will have to suffer it!! That makes it more fun, right?
    So, yeah.. Dishonored. I saw this on your Steam wishlist and INSTANTLY decided that it was the game I would get you. It's a fun, fantastic game and it was really well executed (no pun) in terms of art/setting and how it actually plays. I felt it HAD to be shared.
    Yes, All Dressed chips are a real thing here, and no, I cannot describe the flavor. But they are good and I hope you like them. As for the Ketchup flavor, I could not believe that it was mostly, if not completely, Canadian thing. Like, how in the HELL does America not have them? I was also going to send Dill Pickle flavor, but then I found out that they can be found in general. As for the chocolate items, I hope that they are as rare/Canadian specific as my research told me. Could you confirm? Smarties (the real ones, not the fake ones you guys have) here are kinda like M&M's except more disc shaped than oval. and No whole peanuts, just chocolate and candy coating. Rockets candy here is just sugar compressed into a disc shape with flavoring. See here: rocketscandy.ca/products/rockets/#!prettyPhoto So those are Rockets to Canucks. Tim Hortons is like Mecca to Canadians

    To sum up, my thinking was this: caffeine to keep you awake to play Dishonored, junk food from Canuckistan to eat WHILE playing Dishonored and then Canadian swag to round it all out. I hope you had a happy holiday, and I am sorry it was so late getting there. I tried to time it so that it would get there kinda close to Christmas day, and it almost worked. The first expected delivery date I was given was the 23rd. How perfect would that have been? But then it sat at JFK for like a week. I hope you enjoy it all and become one step closer to joining our tribe. (P.S-- my wife was very jealous of the Hortons mug). So again, happy holidays! And let me know if ya like Dishonored and leep me posted on your progress!

    I'm happy to see XB1 break the 1milli mark. I too told myself I wasn't gonna buy it til like, Spring.. Or when it took its first little price drop. But.. Damn, IDK if I can wait. I may also be horribly irresponsible at Christmas.

    Gasp!
    Spoiler:

    Hmm...seems to be a communication of sorts...
    Spoiler:

    GASP!
    Spoiler:

    The slip had (what I presume to be) a real name, but no alias or screen-name of any sort. So thank you, Aaron Jasper, ya sly goose! This is great!

    P.S.
    I tried for 45mins to re-size. I'm sorry, guys. I failed. :'(

    You don't really know someone until you stare at spoon them while they're sleeping.
