When you think of the legendary icons of rock, who comes to mind? KISS? Queen? Santa Claus? AC/DC? All good answers, but only one of them is the subject of today's amazing game: Santa Rockstar. This rhythm game, a la Guitar Hero, puts you behind the reins of the sleigh, and you have only one hope to bring cheer to all the head-banging girls and boys: pick that ax like Christmas depends on it. Because it does.

If you've ever played a rhythm game, you know how this goes. Hit the notes as they come down the line. I know what you're thinking. Eric, aren't rhythm games dead? But hey, hey! Rock and roll can never die. Nearly as immortal, as well, are Christmas carols. In this game, the two are fused. Nearly a couple dozen classic songs from Jingle Bells to Hark the Herald Angels Sing, all performed in the way every bit of music was meant to be played: on a screaming electric guitar.

Listen, Santa rules, and his beard is magnificent. We all knew this is how he was meant to be portrayed. We can stop now. All other Claus-related depictions are henceforth null and void.

    I saw this game and thought: Eric. Sure enough, he was all over it.
