Many publishers have been sending holiday cards to ye olde Shacknews office. However, this one from 2K Games merits special attention.

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."

        That would be extortion, not bribery.

          Nono, bridery. It's a courting ritual. They want to marry the game review sites (yes, all of them! Nothing wrong with polygamy!)
