Twas the night before PS4mas, and all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a PC mouse. The stockings were hung by the consoles with care, in hopes that St Nick de Bruyne would be there with Gran Turismo 6 tips on a dare.

The gamers were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of Call of Duty filled noobs with lead. And Geoff in his ‘kerchief and Zoe in her cap, had just settled on a new mic to try some gaming raps.

When out of the yard there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window, I flew like a flashed ROM, tore open the blinds and threw up the curtains of my Conan god named Crom.

With a driver in a new sports car so lively and quick, I knew in a moment that it must be Saint Nick. More rapid than go-faster stripes his Corsa came, and he whistled and shouted at me by name:

“Get back to work dammit or I’ll tell Gavin, and screw you if you think I’m doing this rhyming nonsense Darryn DAMMIT!”

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
