Okay, I have loved virtually every update EA has given us. I loved Whacking Day. I even liked Clash of Clones.

But this update is HORRIBLE!!!!

Seriously, wiccans for Christmas? Believe me, I am a historian, I know that Christmas holiday timing and even the tree has pagan heritage (adopted by Christians to try and covert them). I have no issue with that at all.

I do have an issue with nothing festive for a Christmas update:
There are no new festive (you know Christmasy) decos
We can only help 1 friend per day find the Elf on a Shelf parody (though we can tap pagans)


Why not use the Happy Little Elves again
Why not even use Rabbi Krustovski and use Jewish tie ins
Heck, we could go more Catholic or Latino (La Novena, wise men) and embrace of other culture's traditions for Christmas .

    Agreed. But, yeah, this update is horrible.

  • I would've liked to see something like a Santa vs Jesus event instead, both new playable characters who battle about who's holiday it is. Kinda like the very first South Park episode :p
  • I know josh would rant on and on, but that is just not me (and he would have expletives)

    I would not have issue with this update if it was a "Ren Fair" update.

    BUT THIS IS CHRISTMAS!!!!!

    It should be festive. Santa, Toys, Elves, Hanukkah, Menorah, etc

    yes, I know those last two are not "Christmas" but a whole lot more appropriate and festive and this dreary, pagan update

    This is right up there with Easter, IMO. Maybe it will redeem itself, but it doesn't feel festive or cheery. The antlers aren't a match for mistletoe.

    this, exactly.

    and while I agree Easter was a horrible update, it was horrible for the cursed 3 boxes, not because of the content. The content for Easter was fine, and the story was fine, it was just bad on implementation. This update is just plain bad. Like I said, if this was a Ren Fair update, fine, but this is not the 2016 Christmas Winter update

    I honestly don't think they planned to have an update at all and this was last minute. We shall see what happens in 2017.

    Sad, but I think that's exactly the case.
    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.
