Received three games for the 360 which were Arkham City: GOTYE, Lollipop Chainsaw and Red Faction: Armageddon.

Also received three Spectrum games from my Secret Santa on here.

My girlfriend got me Bit Trip Safa without realising I had it. Bit of a shame as she knows zilch about gaming and had put some thought into it, but I'm going to switch it for MGS3D so its all good!

Just Assassin's Creed 3 gameswise.

But then, that's the only game I asked for!

Dishonoured special edition on 360, pretty pleased with that, tend not to ask for games at xmas as it's a minefield for non gamers - I know people will get ripped off at the likes of GAME.

A couple of retro items - Iron Soldier on the Jaguar and Sea Bass Fishing on the Saturn. On the 360 I got Doom 3, Max Payne 3 and Far Cry 3.
Never seem to have time to play anything these days, I've still not even opened Halo 4 which I got just after its release day. :cry:

Just Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U. Good so far, although I thought it could be played using only the game pad. Its possible I just haven't figured that out yet though.
The missus got just Dance 4, so at least I can get a laugh at her on that!

My mother-in-law (after a brief chat with my wife) went and got me ape escape for the ps1. Have been hankering after that since I played a demo of it when I was a teenager but never got round to getting it. Hasnt aged massively well, but still enjoyed playing it yesterday!

Cracking game, played this first time around, such a novel control scheme using the twin sticks to move and swipe Monkeys in your net, and then in the boating sections to work the oars. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I'd usually agree, but I got Dishonoured from the wife after tipping her off to the pre-Christmas deal at Game for their special edition for 20 quid. Went into Game today and nothing worth having in the so-called Sale.
