G&T's Merry Christmas Thread

Captain KCaptain K Registered User regular
edited December 2008 in Games and Technology
Merry Christmas, fellow sweaty nerds. Post in this thread to share your good tidings and, more importantly, to talk about the nerdy shit you got for Christmas.


e.g. my sister and I are giving my uncle's family Scene It? for 360 as a combined gift, and I anticipate much playing over the next 24 hours or so.











P.S. this isn't an off-topic thread, just follow my lead

    I have so far received some weights, pocky, and a change-counting jar.

    ..This may be the wrong thread for this, actually.

    I accidentally caught a glimpse of something labeled 'Wii something' while my mom was wrapping it.

    I gave my kid sister (9) a copy of the new edition of The Way Things Work so she won't grow up to be a moron like her older sister.

    So far, what I've gotten for others...

    Eternal Darkness for my mum
    Eternal Sonata for my brother

    The only nerdy stuff I've really asked for is warhammer things, so we'll see how that goes. Well, and animal crossing for the wii.

    Got my brother-in-law the Quantum of Solace game on Wii. Then my mom, sister, and brother-in-law are getting plushes of Blathers, KK Slider, and Mr Resetti (each is getting one). I also got an 8 pack of these little figures from Animal Crossing (2 of which I took for myself). Each of them is getting two.

    As for what I am getting? Who knows. Hopefully Left 4 Dead on 360. I picked up two 2000 Wii pt cards for my sister to give to her husband. They only charged me $20. Go team.

    Seriously, I've posted this like 9 times tonight, but I got me some Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Whiskey (the base package store bought a whole barrel for themselves and it is delicious), a wireless keyboard and mouse, and fallout fucking 3. I'm drunk and wishing I could play fallout right now, but the wife and I are spending time together/sitting in bed with our laptops conversing whilst we type.

    That's about as nerdy as it gets. And I got a 15 dollar gift card for iTunes. Are there any iPhone games or apps worth getting?

    My mom and aunt visited us from out of town, so we opened presents early this year. Hooray!

    My wife got me the Hellboy Library Edition Vol 1 and 2 which is unbelievably awesome. They are oversized hardcovers containing the first 4 volumes of the Hellboy comic TPBs. I've already read all the regular Hellboy TPBs, but it's still going to take me forever to read these since I just stare at the art for ages. They're absolutely gorgeous.

    My mom and aunt went a bit nuts and got us:
    Babylon 5 Movie boxset
    Babylon 5 Armies of Light and Dark paperback
    The Dunwich Horror and others hardcover
    At the Mountains of Madness hardcover
    Dagon and other Macabre Tales hardcover
    Hellboy 2 DVD
    The Amazing Screw-on Head DVD

    The 3 Lovecraft hardcovers are from Arkham House and collect all of his work. I've already read almost of all of his stuff online since it's now public domain, but there's nothing like having a nicely bound book to read on the couch. I'm so happy since I've wanted these for forever. The B5 DVDs complete my collection, and the other discs are awesome too.

    One of my good friends also got me:
    Red Dwarf season VII and VII DVDs
    Clash of the Titans DVD

    He said he was outright shocked that I didn't own Clash, and felt like he had to remedy the situation stat. Release the Kraken! I've been putting off getting Dwarf SVII and VIII for a while now, so this is awesome that I have finally have all the seasons. I'm thinking of marathoning it for Xmas day.

    So a delightfully geeky holiday filled with Mignola, Del Toro, Lovecraft, B5, Harryhausen, and Red Dwarf. I can't think of anything better! :)

    EDIT:
    My G&T Secret Santa also hooked me up with the Megas - Get Equipped, and a stuffed headcrab which are both fantastic. Thanks werehippy!

    My little sister is getting a Wii and Wii fit from Santa this year. She doesn't think she's getting one because she assumes we can't afford it. I'll have the camera ready in case it reaches N64 heights. I got her Animal Crossing, as well.

    The only thing I regret is that we're not going to be able to set it up so that she sees it when she comes out first thing in the morning. Getting my Genesis like that was one of my best Christmas memories.

    Is it THAT bad? He is the one who wanted it, so I blame him if it is bad. Ha. He isn't that picky with games and likes pretty much everything that he gets. If it is horrible, at least he will also have the new Aqua Teen season from me too. :P

    so one of my generous friends decided to give all of us gifts this year, even though we normally don't give each other gifts. So he gave all 5 of us 2 gifts and then gave us hints to what they were via two obscure youtube videos. I got a Fatboy running down the street and "Red" by Chevelle. I had no idea what it meant.

    This is what my gifts were:
