Many publishers have been sending holiday cards to ye olde Shacknews office. However, this one from 2K Games merits special attention.
A simple black card with XCOM's "Vigilo Confido" logo emblazoned on it opens up with a warning. The card tells us to consider Enemy Unknown "for any annual video game awards" because "future funding for the XCOM project may depend on it."
While the Shacknews team still has to deliberate on GOTY choices, 2K Games can at least take solace in knowing that XCOM is definitely leading the pack in "Holiday Card of the Year."
