All I want for Christmas is . . .

Post by slacey1070 » Tue Nov 23, 2010 4:43 am

Ok, only a few weeks to go before Christmas, whats in your letter to Santa?

My list so far is, Fallout New Vegas, F1, Black Ops, Fable III . . .although I don't see a "stand out" title for me this festive season, last year it was Foza and MW2 . . this year isn't so clear cut.

So, what are you guys hoping for?

I think the North and South Koreans could do with some of that. . although they are probably ok on the sock front.

It would be great if things would settle down in Korea, my girlfriend and I were thinking of heading out there (or possibly to Japan) to teach English for a year before we emigrate. I'm glued to the news right now!

Gaming-wise, there's not a huge amount that I really want, I'm quite happy with my backlog at the moment! I've got Policenauts, Valkyrie Profile Silmeria, Red Dead Redemption, and Pinball FX2 on rotation, and I really need to finish up the Ace Attorney games (I'm halfway through the third one at the moment). Having said that, I've yet to own DJ Hero, and as a huge Beatmania fan I'm dying to get into it. The DJ Hero 2 boxed set with the first game thrown in for free would be lovely.

I also wouldn't mind a nice LED Lenser flashlight ,and a Samsung S2 portable 1Tb hard drive.

Working for Retro gamer?!?!? That pays very well so I hear :-)

Actually, I like to know when I'm going to be made redundant . . that would help!

I'd like some time to play all the games sat on my shelves... not likely though!

I'd also like to get good at NBA2K11... been playing for a few days now and am still rubbish at it. I think I'm too used to NBA Live controls :(

A Christmas tree (fake is fine) that's actually taller than me, up on December 1st instead of rushing like an arse to put up some feeble decorations the day before I leave the house anyway to visit my parents on Christmas Eve.

After that, f*ck it. LEGO if I'm lucky, socks if I'm not. Nintendo seems to be holding anything half-decent back until well into next year. Maybe an upscaling DVD player, since I had to buy a new telly? Blu-Ray? It's only 720p though.
