So, What Did You Get For Christmas?


Merry belated Christmas everyone!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I haven’t posted in a few days. This will actually be my last post of the year too. I’ve completed up 2/3 of my Christmas vacationing thus far and will be wrapping up with a holiday visit to see my two-and-a-half year old niece and 11 month old nephew for a few days this week.

Before heading out I just wanted to check in with the obligatory “what I got for Christmas” report. Got some pretty cool gaming/tech/entertainment goodies this year. As far as games go, Gears of War 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky and Top Spin 3 (PS3 version of course, not a complete tennis game without Nadal!) finally made their way into my gaming library. Also got a pair of Xbox boxers that came in a cool tin case in the shape of an Xbox 360 controller. This year I also put game soundtracks high on my wish list; pretty much any game, didn’t matter to me. Wound up getting some good ones, including Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway, Too Human, the Video Games Live: Volume One compilation, and a pair of Japanese import soundtracks from Square Enix for The World Ends With You and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates.

Other items I received included the 2-disc 24: Redemption DVD, the Animatrix-esque Batman: Gotham Knight two-disc special edition collection of six animated stories bridging Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, a nifty all-in-one docking station that I can neatly hook up and charge up to three portable devices (I’ve got my iPod, DS and cellphone on it right now), and some other knick-knacky stuff. All in all it was a great haul. Definitely more than I expected given the collapsing economy.

Now that you know what I got, I’d love to hear what Santa put under your tree this year. So tell me, what did you get for Christmas?

Bye for now, see you all in 2009!
