What's coming out the week of Christmas? Let's take a look:

<absolutely nothing is being released>

Hmmm...

...okay then. Let's switch it around for a week.

What gaming related goodies (games, consoles, Steam codes, whatever) did you get for Christmas this year?

Does buying for yourself count? If so I'll let you know after the steam sale smile

No one in my family every buys me gaming related items.

In fairness, though, I tend to buy them for myself before they would have a chance.  My wife was upset that I got a Wii U this year, for example, as she was thinking about getting one for me (not my kid, interestingly enough).  Here's the problem, though: I had to actively work to find a Wii U this year.  I'm not convinced she would have found one.  And I have no doubt in my mind that she would have brought home a white one.

My GF bought me a Wii one year... I had purchased several (either for resale, or because I wanted to help out friends incl. GT folks) and she claimed one saying one of her friends wanted one.  (I didn't mark up prices, ironically I took the wii's as an afterthought since the PS3 presale orders were all sold out).

I could have doubled the money and paid for one for myself, but instead I let one go to a friend, and another to my GF's "friend" ...

Biggest. Surprise. Ever. Tongue

Sadly, the system is the least used in the house, right after the PS3.

Right after my wife (of 20+ years) and I started dating, she gave me a Sega console for Christmas. That was when I realized that she loved and accepted the gamer in me.  Sniff.

Merry Christmas.
