Gather ’round, everyone. Cozy up to the fireplace with your favorite Dojo staffers to discuss your favorite holiday memories, Christmas lists and what you want under the tree this year.
We’re also going to look at our favorite snowy levels in video games. You know, the places where Mario throws on a penguin suit so he doesn’t slide across the ice. Or, like in Super Mario 64, maybe you’re just sledding competitively against a penguin for the best race time. Come to think of it, Nintendo characters really love frolicking around in the snow. Link even snowboarded a bit in Twilight Princess. Oh, memories.
Speaking of memories, here’s to many more in the coming weeks. And please join in the conversation and share your thoughts with us as the year comes to a close.
