    All right guys, what did you get for Christmas? Since I have a ton of relatives, we decided to do a secret santa thing for adults. For the youngins, everyone separately bought each of them three or four gifts, so they got some great stuff, like clothes and toys, but they tossed the clothes out of the way to make space for the toys.

    Anyway, I got Kinect with Dance Central (Woo!!) and Kinect Adventures.

    Your turn.

    @UghRochester and @Green_Lantern: any idea on what you're going to buy with the giftcard/monies? I got some gift cards too, I was either thinking of buying a new router or save it up for the list of games coming out next year.

    @MattAY: Nice! I wanted the Wii Fit Plus!! Let me know how you like it.

    It's amazingly fun. And I bought it to burn off some calories. The christmas period hasnt really given me a chance to porper workout on it yet. But the snowboarding is fun!
    In terms of comparing it to the first Wii Fit, I cant help since I never had it.

    Dude, you menstrate?

    Sorry, that's how it read to me.


    Anyway, I ended up having a really nice Christmas with the kids. They were super excited about all the presents, although Noah was sad that he didn't get the Boba Fett helmet that he wanted. All in all, I made out with a new, red Dualshock, new sweater, shirt, pants, and belt, two BDs (How to...Dragon, Inception), camping gear, toolbox and three giftcards. That was a whole lot more than I had been expecting, so I was really happy with it all.

    Also, I got a mother fucking panini maker!!!!!

    $25 doesn't really get you a new game. I'll probably buy some pre-owned games like Dead Rising 2.

    Oh Dead Rising, how I love that game. I'm looking to get a bit more bang for my buck by getting cheap games with my money. Enslaved or Dragon Age Origins....oh the decisions.

    So.... how many Christmas topics do we really need? Can we move them all into one? I think that'd be better than having my homepage cluttered with 5 different ones that are all basically saying the same thing...

    Enslaved I've never played. But Used etc wont stop going on about it! So consider thoroughly.

    Dragon Age is mightily good though, it'll take many many many hours of your time. It's one of those games where (if you are a single, no child bachelor) play one hour of it, before you know it, you've played 7 in one go.
    I dont think you can go wrong with either.

    PS - Deadrisiing 2 is mightily fun. I played the opening sequence about 4 times before I started the actual game.

    Errr one is stating what you got.

    One is stating what you bought for others.

    And one is stating random Blackstar humour.

    The 3 legs that form the mighty tripod of GR Christmas topics.

    Dont complain, I could easily say the same thing for all the damn movie topics we get around here.

    At least they are separate movies, right?

    Or should we just make a current movie chat topic? I personally would like to see a lot more chat topics with specific areas of interest. I was thinking that that would be better than my short-lived comic book club. :(

    Anyways, something on topic....my son scolded me last night on calling his new Christmas gift Light Saber a sword. Well, forgive me, Starkiller.

    I did think of that. I'm not a big movie lover though. So see what all the Wickeds and Letheans think about the one movie topic thing.

    Calling a lightsaber a sword is pretty rookie buddy! Learn from it and grow, like a flower - you will bloom.
