    Its final form has twin mounted cannons. And wings.

    Maymo and Penny have been grinding on teddy bears for, like, an hour now, and got some pretty sweet item drops in the process—who couldn't use a big pile of stuffing and some bear armor? But it's officially too quiet in this living room for their liking. Hope you two have leveled up sufficiently, because things are going to get intense.

  4. Why A Christmas Story Is The Most Honest Holiday Movie

    I love holiday specials. I think that I, like a lot of us, still have the memories of watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Frosty the Snowman imprinted in my very psyche, making me gravitate to airings of A Charlie Brown Christmas like an old top hat toward a golem of a snowman. However, as I grow older, the more that I have to consider that maybe these Christmas specials don’t exactly have the message of warmth and good tidings that they purport to have.

  10. Watch The Adorable Doctor Puppet Christmas Special Right Here

    Trust me, you'll love this.

    Alisa Stern's fan-created series of Doctor Puppet videos have always been pretty well done, but this episode is particularly true to both the spirit of the season and the BBC show. No kidding, I was actually a little scared at one point. Over a puppet.
