I got two PS3 games:

XCOM Enemy Unknown
Lego Lord of the Rings

A hint of retro, but not really! :D

The flu :evil: been in bed since Christmas Eve it's that bad. Got up to see my son open his presents but collapse back into bed after.

Not many games this year as I have bought everything I wanted. Plus still have 3/4 of the games from last Christmas to play yet :lol: sure we have all been there. Games I got were Doom 3(Xbox) and Res 6(Xbox)
Other stuff;
Monitor Audio ideck100 iPod dock
Usual sprays and shower stuff
Socks(no pants which was strange)
Various blu rays including expendables 2, the raid, Star Trek next gen season 1(boy looks sweet now with the make over) load of others but they don't come to mind and I cannot be bothered getting out of my pit of dispair.
Books including Schwarzeneggers new bio
Masses of chocolate and booze
Cracking watch off the other half. She did well on that one :wink:
Multitude if other pretty decent stuff but my memory is failing me

Heard its meant to taste great. Dread to think how much you will need to brush you teeth after. I'm bad enough with tuna and toothpaste don't even touch that :lol:

Yesterday was actually the first Christmas morning I've looked forward to getting up to for six years... most of you know I'm seperated so Christmas Day alone isn't much fun... Boxing Day is my Christmas Day when I have the kids, but some of you may know if you read the What grinds your gears thread that I've been spending a quite a bit of time with a certain girl, we've become really great friends and she bought me a few things...

Stone Sour T-shirt
Slayer T-shirt
Loads of choccies

My mom is over later so I'll probably have the usual socks and shower stuff... I'm hoping I get a new razor too :lol:

Socks
Money
A book
Brita water bottle

And the best present was having my wife over from the USA over Christmas! :)

Nothing games related though, which is kinda odd for me and with so many new releases too

Tell me about it mate! maybe not as bad as you but i had the serious sh1ts and was sweating buckets all day Christmas Eve. I didn't get out of bed until dinner on Crimbo and when i did i felt like a zombie.





Anyways here's what Santa brought me:


7" Terminator T-800 Tech noir figure

7" Terminator 2 T-1000 Motorcycle Cop figure

12" Terminator 2 Battle damaged T-800 figure

12" Predator Figure (one of those that are made out of car & bike parts) the little guy has a spark plug for a shoulder cannon :lol:

Batman boxers

Batman wallet

PainKiller Hell & Damnation - collectors Edition (PC) I still don't know why i asked for this as i already own three different versions of the original PainKiller and from what i've read it's missing most of the game so hardly what i'd call a remake. It does have a nice art book, posters, making of disc and also includes the soundtrack so not too bad i guess. sometimes i have to question whether i'm a collector or a hoarder?

Batman Arkham City (PC)

Guilty Gear X (PC)

Guilty Gear - Isuka (PC)

Super Street Fighter IV - Arcade Edition (PC)

and a bunch of socks, smellys and a 10 pk of Fosters



I chose most of my prezzies this year so not too many surprises, but the Predator was a very nice surprise :D

EDIT: I also treated myself to a new mixer as mine current one is a bit temperamental - it has a nasty habit of cutting-out in the middle of a gig. Gone for a nice solid three channel Numark this time - no bells n' whistles, just three-band EQs.
