Forza 4 for my 360 and Persona 4 Golden for Vita. My son got Minecraft for the 360, which is getting most play time, and Super Mario 3D World.

Tetris Bopit from my RGSS - I have the high score! :D

I treated myself to PS+ and got a stack of games for my vita and shiny new ps3.

-Colour-changing Pac-Man mug
-Three Skylanders things
My comics blog (mostly lesser-known UK stuff from the 80s and 90s)

[copied from another thread]

No games or anything gaming related. Again. But that's ok with me. Did get:

Pierre Balmain knitted long cardigan
Jaspar Conran scarf
Toblerone
Odd Interlude book, Dean Koontz
Dragonlance Chronicles 3-in-1 book (paperback yet hardback-sized)(to replace the copy a friend borrowed years ago and never returned before disappearing elsewhere in the country)
Money
Vouchers
Miniature bottle of Famous Grouse whiskey

Will be hitting the sales on Friday with my wife for more bits and bobs, and a gift has been delayed to arrive by New Year.

Not a huge amount, but happy with what I got. And at my age, cannot expect mountains of pressies. :lol:

[edit - following Friday's Sales venture] Paul Smith shirt

Only thing I got Gaming was the new Zelda for the 3DS. Also got a Pacman ghost stressball for work, and the 50th anniversary Doctor Who monopoly. Got tickets to the TNA tour from my brother. Well I say I got them, he bought them and then asked me if I could give him half the price as he couldn't afford it, cheeky git.
