Are you looking for a game that lives up to Christmas the way Spooky Station and Pumpkin Jack live up to Halloween? This game was like an actual gift under an actual tree when I saw it free on Steam. I don't know a darn thing about Cave Story or its balrog, but here's the deal. In Cave Story's Secret Santa You are a pixel art Santa, the presents have been stolen, drop-in through chimney's in a diverse world to replace the presents. There's a catch though, booby traps and sentries line children's houses, which you must stealthily avoid or risk restarting. It's a pretty low key game and is bound to be one of the best Christmas-themed games I've played.
Miscellaneous Game Reviews
GeoGuessr... Ahh, I've waited so long to delve into this one. I present to you today a non-traditional game review to showcase a game that is on the fringe of traditional games but so fresh and fun that everybody is finding out about it. GeoGuessr is a browser-based game that uses images from Google Streetview. You are dropped off in a random lat/long on Earth or whichever area/theme you specify and you use clues from your surroundings to find out where you are. Any person could easily bend the rules to win. For purists, on the other hand, it's a wonderful way to use reasoning and deduction to sharpen your geography skills.
