One of the many great reasons for releasing Ice Station Santa in November was that you can now replay it in December and get that warm, Christmasy feeling inside all over again. Sam & Max designer extraordinaire Brendan Q. Ferguson has come up with another great list of things to try on your second play through. So grab some egg-nog, put on your warm, fuzzy slippers, and curl up in front of your PC for another few hours of holiday cheer.
