If I may say, Dragonica takes the cake when it comes to Christmas related ingame content. Some of the Christmas features are:
- Main towns have recieved a facelift and are covered in snow, Christmas trees and snowmen!
- Some music has changed to be more Christmas themed!
- Loading screens have been changed to Christmas themed, as well as the login screen.
- For 9,999 Cash Points, you can purchase a 30-Day Christmas costume for your class and it comes with a bonus Christmas badge. Unlike other event badges, this improves the skill level of a major skill for that class and gives out a slight stat bonus to those who wear it. If not, other christmas cash shop items can be bought for a small fee. Also included are Tamago, which can drop special costumes or beneficial items to gameplay.

Finally, beta applications for Final Fantasy XIV for PC are now open. You can sign up at the following link <http://entry.ffxiv.com/>. From there, choose your region (For Australians, I believe you are supposed to put Europe, it let me login for that one) and then read and follow the prompts. This is currently only for the PC version with the PS3 beta potentially coming at a later date. Please remember it is an online game so this beta will take place on online servers.
Well then, keep an eye out on The Otaku’s Study for more news on Anime, Manga and Gaming and I hope you all enjoy these online gaming Christmas specials!
