Mairocrat Holiday Spectacular II: The CoNcast E027

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. And the very next day, you listened to a Christmas CoNcast in which Tiddles and I talked about holiday memories and played mairocrat wii.

With our podcast pace remaining slow, and the holiday season already in full swing (and with Tiddles now in possession of a streaming device hooked up to his Wii U), we decided to give it another try this year, this time running mairocrat 8 and streaming it to Twitch. (What, you didn't know CoN had a sometimes-used Twitch channel?)

Anyway, see below for this cast. It's full of us yelling at our Wiis and sharing the best parts of gaming at the holidays, like unwrapping games on Christmas morning or buying games we'll never play on Steamsale. It's also a nice, compact, exactly-forty-minutes that you can devour on the train or plane as you travel for the holidays. Share your holiday gaming memories with us, too!

Glenn Magus Harvey Hey look, I'm responding to this thread about as late as the Christmas tree stayed up in my dorm once! (Yes, it was only finally taken down in April.)

> holiday gaming memories

Oddly, I don't have much in the way of gaming-specific holiday memories.

I didn't get all that many games as a little kid, I guess, and when I got them it was relatively random.

I do remember getting Pokémon Yellow for my birthday once, but that's not during the Christmas season.

Recent holiday seasons have seen me turn some attention to big sales, of course, but nowadays it basically just means that I just accumulate a few more games that I have no time to play.

Seems I'm not the only one in that boat, lol.

Seems I'm also not the only one in the boat where I've basically picked up all the games I want and actually have very few games I'm looking forward to. Goes doubly so for me since I tend to get into games several years late.

> look-around-you

Look around you. Look around you. Just, look around you.

Have you worked out what we're looking for?

...correct! The answer is...
Possible spoilers: highlight to view
dot matrix with stereo sound.

> the stuff with Gyromite and playing with one's feet

This reminds me of holding down a button on the second controller in Mega Man 3's infamous invincibility mode.
