No probs mate, cheers for the lot, was bizarre to open a package that had an oink comic in especially as I still have the first ten or so still, brought back some good memories :-) I also used to have a full set of those choose your own adventures too when I was a kid, almost like you must have seen into my room about 20 years ago :-)

I already a have incredible crisis, so it's all ok, but your disc was in better nick than mine :-)

Ooh, Subzero was my one? Cheers, you've been redeemed!

A Pac-Man money box (shaped like his head, the 3D variety), and when you put coins in the top it goes "WAKKAWAKKAWAKKA" really loudly. I was annoying my sister with it all day :D

Also a Joust sticker and a tube of Drumsticks, yeah. Very nice and cheers :D

And Detective Helen's already figured out that I was her one, well done.

Well I was Sel Feena's SS but I can only assume they disliked the choices as they haven't posted anything about it :cry:
I go them the Final Fantasy VII Reunion Soundtrack, a Disgaea 4 promotional figure and 1000 Game Heroes Art Book.
Oh well..

Your secret santa had trouble and the sending of your gift was delayed, although i'd expected it to be with you by now, your sender is a very reliable person in my opinion, i'm sure he can shed some light on the matter
my apologies
Visit www.youtube.com/replayretro . why? well erm, cos it would be awfully friendly of you to take a look i guess, you don't have to though, nobody will make you *sob sob*

I wouldn't worry about it, looks like most people haven't written aboutwhattheygot, my secret Santa was yak mag and he hasn't written anything, doesn't mean he doesn't like it :-)

By the way I would have liked your presents :D

I was Retrogardens SS.

All he put was 'consoles owned - xbox360' so Im sorry that I had to play it safe with the 800 points, rather that then get you a game you already had :wink:

Thought Project Eden was a niche enough title, that you didn't have it, so went that route as well. :wink:

tachi, sorry I haven't't posted anything, your gifts were awesome. Especially like the Disgaea figure. I also feel the need to apologise to Mohicankid for the delay, I'm not organised at the best of times. So very sorry fella.

So glad you liked 'em & I'm delighted you didn't pick them up before Xmas yourself!

When I saw that I'd got you in the draw I had a mild panic as I remembered you were in a similar position to myself where you were "downsizing" your stuff, so the last thing you'd want would be more retro gubbins....thankfully it wasn't too tricky to think of what to get you in the end as (a) It's one of the first things you requested in your "wants" thread & (b) I Absolutely LOVE Gradius on the PSP so I'd a fair idea (well hoped anyway) you'd like it.

The Transformers comics thing is similar to what I did with my old computer mags & 80's comics, hopefully you'll be able to get them on your kindle ok & hopefully the scan quality is decent. :D
The comics came through brilliantly - had to install a reader on my phone to use them but works well so no issues. As for Gradius apart from the major celebration days it has been in use since then and still going strong. Cannot thank you enough - seriously impressed and very grateful.

Excellent, that's great to hear. :D

I bet it's still going to be tough parting with the originals though.

Still don't know who got my Tetris clock yet....but whoever did THANK YOU, it's ace. :D
