It's the holiday season and that means presents! (among other things ^^)

I made a video showing the gifts that I got and now I'm curious to see what you got :)

I've got a copy of Tekken Tag 2 on the PS3 from my little brother (I know as he couldn't figure out WHAT game to buy, I ended up giving him one to wrap :lol: )

As far as I'm aware I don't have any other gaming related pressies...my folks have given a contribution to my next trip to Japan and my best mate has given me something really oddly shaped - definitely not game related!!

Hope everyone has a brilliant christmas tomorrow! :)

Loads of stuff for my 360, which i super appreciate but half expect, then out of the blue anouther gift lurked under the tree. I open to find a boxed dreamcast and 15 or so games 8) . Now, my other half has never understood my need for retro gaming. Whilst she used to enjoy it when i was sort of a "trader"*, i now pretty much keep 90% of my "stock" for myself. This withstanding the last thing i expected was a retro console to actually keep as a gift! Best bit of all, she knows i buy nothing unless its dirt cheap and to be honest if she payed alot for it i would have been a bit annoyed. She gos on to tell me how shes been looking on ebay for months for badly listed items/no pictures/blunt descriptions that no one will bid on- just like i do. She then wrote down all the games that came with it and priced checked them on Ebay! She only parted with 18quid in total and was so pleasd to tell me i could sell 3 of the games straight away to pay for the whole present :lol:. :lol:
Sorry about the long story but i was so genuinly chuffed about the whole thought process of a girl who has no interest in gaming, ive created a right Del-boy!



*By, trader i mean i used to buy and sell about 5games a week to make a few pence....
