Well, it is Christmas. I am not fond of Christmas these days. I used to be, but now I am not.
So I hope today passes quickly so I can stop being anxious.

I've finished CBC for the most part but still need to contact sponsors; I didn't want to do this during Christmas though because it seems a bad time to bother them. So I'll contact them over the next few days and hopefully it'll be released soon.

I've been planning my next game for a while though, and I've got all the mechanics and now a draft of the plot sorted out. I'm eager to get to it!
It'll be an RPG, for those of you that don't know, unrelated to MARDEK, built in AS3. Hopefully short, as practice making RPGs in AS3. Then I'll use the code as a base for future projects like FHO and Beast Signer.

As with CBC, I'm reluctant to talk about it until I'm sure I'll finish it, so as not to get hopes up about it, only to disappoint.

So yes. While I don't like Christmas, maybe you would benefit from having a good day that is this one. Yes. Maybe. Probably. So merry it.

On a slightly unrelated note, does anyone else feel like the "magic" of Christmas that was ever so present during childhood has just ceased to exist? Not a slow decline or anything like that just all the sudden one year it was gone?
I suppose I'm asking this because Christmas for me this year wasn't really the happy smorgasbord of food, family, and tradition that it always has been for me in the past. For those of you that are still full of Christmas spirit, I hope you never lose it.
Because I'm starting to miss it.

What do you mean? Is it the flatness of the feeling you perceive during Christmas season? Is it the loss of excitement for Christmas? Because if so, I think I've lost the Christmas spirit. In fact, on the very day of Christmas, I felt so murderous and violent. Go figure. Make of that what you will. It seems funny that I've kept a countdown in my notebook for Christmas, but on the exact day I feel so... not for it.

I think you're just growing up. Pretty much the same reason as why people think the new generation of pokemon sucks compared to the older ones, while the younger generation likes both. Just an analogy.

Then again a simpler reason would be that everyone's busier compared to previous years.

I think one of the major things that changes around the excitement of Christmas is presents.

When I was a kid, I was always thrilled to get toys that made lots of noise. Nowadays though, it sort of doesn't feel the same. I think that it has something to do with me no longer liking those toys... okay... to be honest, I still love those toys and I play with them and everything, but I'm not *supposed to* since I'm an "adult".(I still feel like a kid sometimes.)

Another thing to note though is that a large number of adolescents and young adults tend to feel depressed, which also messes with the Christmas feeling.

But to answer the question, yes, in a way I no longer feel the same about Christmas. I do still have some feelings from it, but by no means is it anywhere near what it was when I was a kid. I, too, feel a certain, powerful nostalgia for "the way it used to be", in more things than just Christmas.

Though I probably should have said this in my last post, I got a fig-and-vanilla scented lotion because my hands get really dry during the winter... I just thought it was funny. It smells good.

I shall merry this Christmas by using merry as a verb! And that Santa Claus will also help me merry this Christmas by bringing me things! Then, when Santa leaves, I will photograph his sleigh and report it as a UFO! Bahahaha!

May I suggest you to finish the MARDEK Walktrough if it don't take you too much time, and I am looking forward to see more Beast Signer in the future, however it seems that there is few people on the site, that is a little sad.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I don't know if you noticed but he has a few other things to do. Such as finishing CBC, getting it sponsored, try out making his new AS3RPG that he hinted at and all his other games.
For the order that he will do the games in go to the bottom of the games page.
Also your sentence doesn't quite make sense. Being Norwegian only gives you a few benefits like spelling etc. but the end doesn't make sense.
I know pseudo doesn't like us answering questions directed at him but it wasn't as direct as other situations.
Merry Christmas..

I wish you guys and girls whatever you'd like. That's probably the best for everyone.

Merry Christmas, and various other winter holidays to everyone. If I remember correctly, in previous years, there were hundreds of comments by now.

Myes, happy Christmahunnakwanzica to you all. Happy Pigglemas to you Pseudo, and to all the other yalortians who went to catechism.

Despite feeling sorry that you don't seem to like Christmas all to much, I am glad you're working on another game idea thing. Hopefully that will work out.(I'm hoping for another medieval style game, but if it's a Raider/SMECOF2005X/CBC type game, I'm sure it will turn out fine.)

So yes, happy Christmahannakwanzica and a happy new year.

Merry Christmas, even if you don't like it. I wasn't looking forward to it as much as I usualy do either but it's a good thing to say anyway.

Looking forward to hopefully playing CBC the beta testers haven't told me anything about it so it should be a good surprise.

And this new rpg in AS3 will hopefully be good aswell. I don't think it'll be deliverance as he said he would be doing that in FHO but you never know. At least tell us if it'll be in the same universe.
