December is here, which means this year’s Polar Express stream is coming ’round the mountain. For the record, this will be the 9th year of Polar Express shenanigans for me since I posted the original game review in 2012, I don’t think I’ve missed a year? That makes it one of my longest-held holiday traditions that I still observe, which is pretty wild to think about. It’s just a dumb game that’s honestly not very fun to play through, but skipping it doesn’t even seem like an option at this point.
The past couple of years I haven’t done anything really special with the stream, which I think is totally fine, not every year has to be something out of the ordinary. Most of the time I don’t think about the stream until it’s almost Christmas, which doesn’t leave me much time to prepare for anything else. I’ve actually managed to think about it ahead of time this year, though! So I’d like to try and do something fun with it this year.
I currently don’t have any ideas, but while I’m thinking on it I figured I’d reach out to you guys to see if anybody’s imagination is sparked. I’m just looking for suggestions on how to spice up the Polar Express stream this year. Be it a guest, an extra activity, or something I can actually do during the stream to make the playthrough more interesting/challenging/stupid… whatever! Any ideas. Consider it a public brainstorming session.
Thanks in advance for thinking about it, even if you don’t come up with anything! I appreciate the thought.
