    Shovel Knight is amazing. I own a couple different versions. Most recently I bought the PS4 version mainly because it came with an actual manual and I really want to support that because manuals were/are awesome.

    Easily one of my favorite games of the last few years, and I thought your Wii U could use some more love. Shovel Knight is a love letter to classic games. Plus it still has new DLC content coming out, the new campaign Spectre of Torment will be out soon, and Plague of Shadows is already available.. and a third campaign is planned for the future as well. I believe all that stuff is free with the retail version, so in a way, it's the gift that keeps on giving! I really hope you enjoy it. Don't know if your kiddos are gamers, but Shovel Knight might be something you could enjoy with them as well. I know I would have lost my shit if Shovel Knight came out when I was around the age of your boys.

    Super disappointed with that Amazon print job. It was supposed to say "Hopefully you haven't STRUCK THE EARTH yet, and are ready to DIG IN. Merry Shovelmas!"

    Yes, other developers need to take note of how yacht club games does dlc. It's crazy that they are still coming out with dlc for this game and it's all free.

    I wanted to assemble my gifts into one box with a note, but the Amazon shipping on some of the items wouldn't have made it here for me to safely ensure everything got there on time. Know that the gifts were heavily meditated upon, O Nameless One.

    So Package #1, Codename STORM arrived! On the heels of an actual storm bringing an extremely unusual heavy snowfall and sub-zero Arctic chill to the Vancouver area. What have you done, Santa? I had to put on a toque to pick this up! With ear flaps!

    FFo7kbOm.jpg

    Ha ha, it's even a package from Blizzard. Santa really tempted the weather gods!

    Mje29Cwm.jpg

    Package is duly inspected and accepted with great love, even if it is a bit too small for sits.

    D'awww, it's an azure whelpling! Santa, your note indicated that you managed to pick the one major MMO I don't play, but actually, I played WoW for many years and definitely had this guy following my character around from time to time. He's adorbs!

    And Giles is very happy with his present as well! Huzzah for bags!

    Thanks so much, Santa @Bursar! I look forward to the arrival of Package #2, codename CHILLSMITH with both jolly anticipation (prezzies!) and trepidation (what kind of weather will it summon?)!

    That's awesome! Good thing I picked up a 128gb thumb drive for the WiiU then to download all this dlc! I had already filled the included storage and almost a 16gb so I decided to go big.

    The kids just finished Yoshi's Wooly World so this will be a great option for them. I got them Skylanders trap team for Christmas, but it hasn't been as popular so Shovel Knight might be the new hotness. It's so hard to guess what they'll enjoy. I guess it's the breadth of options these days compared to the NES and playing one or two games for months because that's all you had.

    That's really awesome they are including free dlc instead of the standard season pass most games do!

    Turns out the package that I thought I never received was delivered to my apt office, only I never got any sort of notification or note at my door.

    An excellent haul! Thank you very much mystery Santa. Not many clues to go on but I'll have a wee go at reverse stalking before calling out for you to reveal yourself.

    We may have the full Winter Village collection, with the new Christmas train waiting under the tree. We probably won't have time and space to build them all this year but the kids love them and it makes for a nice calming activity on over excited Christmas season evenings, as well as family tradition in the making.

    Maybe he could, you know, finish writing it first before starting a TV series so the TV series doesn't need to go off and start making things up as they run out of material.................

    edit: Also, I finally figured out what to get for my santee. So for all of you who haven't already had santa revealed, be prepared.

    Sudden memory sparks. This is the book that spawned this strip?

    Technically the second book spawned that strip.

    My Dad was telling me about that book last year, and then again a few weeks ago. I've put it on hold at our Library, but now I'm seeing mentions of it all over the place.

    I saw Patrick's panel at PAX and bought the first book after making it back home and then promptly read through all of the books in the series I could get my hands on

    He's still working on the infamous book 3. It's not ASOIAF levels yet but it's very much on people's most wanted list.

    Maybe not for the unwashed masses, but this series is WAY better than ASOIAF as far as I'm concerned. I refuse to get giddy about the next book, though. Robert Jordan already dis-abused me of that notion...

    It's funny to note a distinct lack of The Expanse books show up, but I figure if you know Sci-Fi at all you've been reading them for a few years now, so it's certainly less of a "secret series." ;P

    It's kind of a gamble to send books though. I mean, there's the chance your santee doesn't like to read (I don't know if we have anyone who still falls into the "Books are gay" camp, but...) or may not have time to sit down with a good book (let alone five or six good books).
    If you have a santee who says they do like to read in their signup, there's a chance they've already read it already. Especially if it's a well known series like The Expanse (which got a lot of fans when SyFy put out their series).

    Generally, it's much safer (also easier to wrap, and cheaper to ship) to send a gift card to Amazon and a list of books you recommend.
