Merry Christmas from Ready Up

It’s Ready Up’s third Christmas and we have been given the greatest present any website could wish for – a dedicated community of enthusiastic, intelligent and articulate gamers. They’ve become more than just our most avid readers. Between the staff, forumers and regular site visitors we’ve become a family.

Although we may not spend Christmas Day together, bloated on turkey and arguing over Pictionary, I know we’ll all think of each other as we fall asleep in front of It’s a Wonderful Life. Merry Christmas to you all.

Below is our Christmas pressie to you. You may open it early:

    Sweet. Great day. Amazing that so many people used the same words to describe the site, I guess that makes it all true. Well done Ready Up for making the awesome site that has made us all come back and made us all friends.

    Merry Christmas to everyone that makes Ready Up possible.
    Ready Up is the gamer’s Ferrero Rocher and you really are spoiling us with awesomeness. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Brilliant, I fear the Wii players stole some of the limelight with frantic rowing, mounting, bowling et al.

    Elephant Beanbags are the business, Alison! They can withstand the bottoms of hundreds of gamers sitting on them every day for YEARS! You’re our beanbag fairy!

    This is the moment in 2009 when I finally realised Christmas is here.

    That was fun to watch ๐Ÿ™‚ Such a shame we had to leave early, looks like it ended up being a pretty damn crazy night. Let’s hope there’s a next time eh? Walter… you’re mental. Martin… I had to look twice there, I could swear I heard Bobby Kimball singing!

    Bloody fantastic! I love the Wii shenanigans in the background!

    Excellent vid, well done! Almost brought a tear to my eye. Grr @ you finding me, Pete and Darach. Thought we’d hidden from the camera quite well ;D Such a fantastic weekend with fantastic people. Merry christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thats my sofa, and I don’t remember anyone asking me if it could feature in this video! =D

    Nice wee video. :]

    You people are mental. I think I’m in love.

    Great to see you guys chilling out and having so much fun! Here’s to 2009, and raise your glasses to 2010 and what fun it will bring. Keep up the great work.

    Hahaha, absolutely fantastic. Great memories of that night, and it’s nice to hear the opinions of the team as as the community so in sync. I must be sporting the most Ayrshire accent I’ve ever heard in my brief snippets. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Apologies about the shaky footage of the legendary Martin/Walter combo at the end. I think I was filming that, and as you can probably understand, it was somewhat hard to keep the camera steady! I wasn’t sure if I was hallucinating or not.

    I’m shocked there is no footage of me trying to flog that awful pizza to anyone, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Looking forward to the next meet! It’s always great to meet you guys in person.
