What lovely goods and wonderful services were bestowed unto you for this year's Designated Festive Holiday Period?

Here are the gaming-related goods that I got given from out of Santa's sack this year! Oh, except for the Zelda shirt that I'm wearing right now! For as cool as the below stuff is, probably my Mostest Killer Kristmas App is a sick new coat that I got; I reckon I could stash two Vitas, two 3DS XLs and my NEX-5N in that badboy.

Um, the only thing I really got was tickets for the Lady Gaga concert in May. Other than that nothing at all. Which, I'm fine with because I buy everything I want by myself anyways.

Got a PS3 not that long ago and this is one of the games I wanted to play.
Needed a new one so this was my biggest gift.
Heard good things so asked for it for Christmas

I also got a few smaller things like clothes but those were the most noteworthy things I got this year.

I got boring adult stuff, cos I just buy the stuff I want.

Undies, Jack Daniels x 2, Jack Daniels tall glasses x4, some toothbrush heads (get some every year), Egg cups because the ones we have are shit and some chocolate. Oh and a £25 amazon gift voucher from somebody I met like a month ago and some lol mystery skins.

But it's OK, cos I'm getting paid so much in December that I get a new PC in January.

It's both loud and annoying.

An espresso machine (now I can satisfy my inner barista without wearing pants), and some other kitchen stuff. Things that I don't buy myself, but are actually super useful. Also had a relatively heated game of Scrabble. And I'm demanding a rematch tonight. This time wine might be involved.

Too lazy to take a picture.

That should be a ban worthy offensive.

My aunt gave me about 300 bucks cash as a red envelope, which is super generous and I kind of felt bad about accepting, but I didn't know the amount until after I had left the country. My mom also gave me a red envelope for my girlfriend and myself, and my girlfriend got me something but since she's not in town I still have no idea what it is.

Aside from that, everything else I got for myself, which I don't think counts...? :/

#31 Posted by Ramone (2962 posts) -

I got a PS Vita!

I also got other miscellaneous Christmas stuff. Which is nice because it's the sort of stuff I should buy for myself but never do because I'm lazy/forgetful/an idiot.

#32 Posted by Christoffer (1801 posts) -

There's a lot of stuff going on around Christmas for me, but I don't celebrate it so I have no gifts to show. However, when I had some friends over the other day they dropped off a shitload of candy for some reason. I accept it as a loving gift in its own way.

Money for two months rent which was out of the blue and rad as shit. Went to go pay it today and they told me I was payed up already. Man that was cool.

Got a pair of Audio Technica ATH M50s. As I live in an apartment building with a bunch of old people as neighbors, this is a godsend.

Then mostly the usual cooking utensils and cookware. It's nice because my parents always get the good stuff.

Pretty awesome Christmas I say.
