DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue: This game is surprisingly awesome and really funny to boot. Any game that frequently quotes Monty Python and makes you fight a bloodthirsty Santa Claus for the Thong of Generosity gets a thumbs-up in my book. It came out last year from Hothead Games and for only $10. It’s a great little pickup. Secret of Mana: This action RPG from SquareSoft came out in 1993 for the almighty Super Nintendo Entertainment System. One of my favorite games of that generation, it had a surprising twist in the form of the Frost Gigas boss. Turns out Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick was turned into a monster by some very scientific shit. Long story short, you kick his ass, thereby saving him. You know the routine. ToeJam and Earl: So, TJ&E is an action game for Sega that came out in ‘91 about rapping aliens who are trying to get back home. Yep. Well, during your adventures you stumble on a fat bearded old man. No, not your Uncle Louie — I’m talking about Santa Claus. So just sneak up on the ol’ bastard and get yourself some free shit. That’s pretty much his sole purpose anyhow, right?
