I really wish Ultimate Mega Drive Collection was on-line 2 player :(
I shall be playing a selection of Master System games, and Ecco II. Probably play some Mario on Wii with my kin as well. Lovely stuff.

Unfortunately it will probably be black ops, if everyone else wants to play it what can you do?

Commandos 3
Spellcraft
and 2 other games I can't remember at the time of typing this (hey, I'm pi$$ed after all, give me some slack)

Motorstorm: Arctic Edge for some snow-flavoured fun.

Soul Calibur since my Dreamcast is at my parents' house, and it would be rude not to make the most of the opportunity.

Probably a random assortment of Spectrum games with my dad.

not a lot probably. The kids completely take over all the TV's with their new Christmas games....will have to play some old handheld faves (more than likely won't get past Tetris)

Got a few Super Famicom Scrolling bat em ups for Christmas so looking forward to playing Melfand Storys

Ideally a commodore plus 4 and play Video Machines and Fingers Malone to remind me of Christmas past

I forsee a festive period replaying Uncharted 2, dipping between a few social Wii/Gamecube games and whatever I get on the day (I have a sneaking suspicion Vanquish is one of them)

I used to play Shenmue around this time of year but I'm so bored of it I just could not stomach another playthrough just yet. I have been playing Christmas NiGHTS over the past week or so on Saturn and Super Mario Bros on NES (which I think plays so much nicer than the All Stars verison). I have also decided to finish off Body Harvest as that's taken a long time to get around to doing.

Not that I have a great heap of time off this Christmas period, but I'm hoping to pick up Black Ops this week sometime - just so I can play a bit of multiplayer with a few mates.

Ah, fondest gaming memory was my megadrive turning up xmas eve. A present from me to me. Sad, but no one else was gonna get it for me.

I'll probably be playing lots of Jamma cabinet arcade stuff this xmas. Especially Donkey Kong which I can't believe I've got so bad at! :lol:
