Hey folks, don't have a lot of time for in-between commentary on this post, but I thought I'd share some holiday-themed game music and at least other tracks that fit a wintery theme.
It was actually bit difficult to not lean hard on Nintendo, retro games or an MMORPG for this this line-up as they all intentionally go for that kind of stuff. Some are festive, some are icy and some just feel warm and familiar, like being with family and friends and sipping hot cocoa. Or being an intergalactic bounty hunter in a world full of things that want to kill you. Or a blue hedgehog that runs on ice.
We had Christmas early last night at my family's place. Got a little Red Samurai case for my Nexus 7, some Google Play cards and shoes. Used some of my credit for Super Hexagon and GTA San Andreas! GTA:SA had some issues running on Nexus 7 at first, but after redownloading it, an update triggered and it runs now!
After that, I had to kick all the settings up to maximum because I forgot what total ass this game looked like, but the touch controls are fairly good. Even then I had to dress up this screenshot to make it look decent (and full of holiday cheer).
Anyway, happy holidays, everyone! Enjoy the music!
