I got Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D. I only played the first Zelda game and the only other retail game I have for the 3DS is Ghost Recon (which is very good) so I'm quite looking forward to making a start on this!

Lots of lounge wear, undies and socks
A Body Warmer

Did alright this year - lovely selection of ales and whiskeys to get through, new DVD player, few books, CDs and shirts, a bit of cash....and lastly on the retro games front:


...love it :mrgreen:
Hope everyone had a great day.

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.
