Puzzler: Game-industry Christmas cards (2010)

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

In what is now an annual Bitmob tradition (don't look up last year's edition, though — all those images are broken for some reason), we're going to show you a bunch of Christmas cards that we've received from the game industry, and you're going to guess where they came from!

In the scans or emailed jpegs below, I've obscured key wording that would give away who sent that holiday greeting. The answers and original images are on page two.

We'd be awfully impressed if you can figure out all 17 below. In fact, we'd call you a liar if you said you did. We don't even know what some of these companies do….

Update: More cards!
