Ho, ho, ho, internet!
Last year, the amazing Kim of Later Levels created this awesome Christmas community collaboration event thingy. I was so totally in, then I deleted my old website earlier this year, erasing my old entries of the interwebz forever. Alas!
Basically, there were 12 holiday themed questions bloggers answered on set days, in a format of their own choosing. Yep. I’m still trying to get back in touch with my joyful side after 2018’s craziness… so I’m hyping myself up for that upcoming cheery Christmas event by re-posting my old answers and providing new answers for this year. I’ve changed a lot, man.
You need to choose a gift for someone special and go online to check out the video game item catalogue. Who is this person and what present would you select for them?
I didn’t read anywhere that the someone special had to be real, so I’m choosing my Grey Warden’s dorky knight man, Alistair, from Dragon Age Origins.
One of his most hilarious and famous pick up lines in-game is “So tell me, have you ever licked a lamppost in winter?”. Get it? Tee hee! So to commemorate that beautifully awkward one liner, I would totally order him this awesome ugly Christmas sweater from redbubble.com:
I’ll shamefully admit it. The way I interpreted this question made me feel a little sad last year. I won’t get officially cranky about it until Valentine’s Day rolls around yet again (ugh), but I’ve never had anyone romantically special in my life (more details here). And I’m finally almost 100% accepting of that. Maybe I don’t need the ol’ other half. Perhaps I’m whole enough on my own, eh!
Plus, there are SO MANY other forms of love besides the romantic dating kind. I think friend love is more important to me, in all honesty. I have two best friends in my life that I love like family members, and for them I am truly grateful. Not to mention all the cool people I’m honored to consider online friends. They are all someone special to me.
So you know what? Here’s what game related items I’d gift a few of my online blogger buddies with (if I were the richest human in the world with magical powers… that would be so sweet).
Athena of AmbiGaming – For getting me hooked on glorious BioWare games, I would totally get the Goddess of Wisdom her very own Normandy SR-1 from the original Mass Effect game (complete with deployable Mako). She could fly absolutely anywhere in the world/galaxy that she wanted to with that! 🌎👍
The Shameful Narcissist – For showing me the true awesomeness of Sephiroth, I’d gift the badass TSN her very own mini summonable Meteor from FFVII (just to use on a smaller scale… to avoid wiping out our solar system all the time). Oh and an entire Latin choir to follow her around that sings One Winged Angel on command. ☄️
Mr. Wapojif of Professional Moron – For convincing me to play the emotional masterpiece Ori and the Blind Forest, I’d gift this moron with his very own pet Ori. So adorable! I’m sure he’s easy to take care of too… just watch out for the Spirit Tree’s light. 🥔
Kim of Later Levels – For doing a ton of good for charities like Special Effect, I’d gift Kim a Monkey Island theme park that takes up residence on her very own private island (with her own mansion and everything). 🎉
Chris of Overthinker Y – For always reminding me I seriously need to finish Kingdom Hearts someday, I’d gift Chris with his very own army of 1,000 Heartless minions. I’m mostly positive he wouldn’t use them for evil purposes… if that is indeed Chris, and not Xehanort. 🤔
Ian of Adventure Rules – For creating the epic Blogger Blitz community event, I’d gift Ian with his very own tabletop RPG game. He’ll be in charge of creating it, and it will no doubt sell in the millions. 🗺️
the Well-Red Mage – For always respecting differing opinions and giving me the opportunity to become the Livid Lightning Mage, I’d gift the Mage Dude with the advertising power to turn his website into something more popular than IGN. For the good of video game journalism! 🧙
Nana Marfo – For being an even bigger fan of Final Fantasy XIII than I am, I’d gift this dude with his very own game studio where he could make whatever games he wants to! 🎮
And so, so many more bloggers that I ran out of creative mind power to think of cool things for… love all of you guys!
