Let's see, I got:

-Logitech Wireless Mouse M325
-two Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme Special Holdiay Design Bars
-small can of Sour Cream and Onion Pringles
-long PJ pants from Weatherproof Garment Co.
-Claiborne sweater
-fuzzy jacket from Columbia Sportswear Co.
-The Skinnytaste Cookbook
-Kirby amiibo
Spoiler: click to show
Which I'm excited about. I always wanted to walk into a store, or somewhere, with a big box full of amiibos (preferably with as many waves released as possible) and blindly choose one--just one--and whichever one it'd be would be my fated Smashing companion, no matter who it was. Now, it seems the choice has already been made, and I can't really complain. After all, I gave no hint of wanting any particular one, so my sister's choice was as random as I could hope for.

I still don't have Super Smash Bros. for Wii U yet (although the holiday's not over for me as I'll be going to a relative's house soon) but my amiibo partner and a bunch of ideas for custom Miis are all set.


Oh yeah, and

-eShop card from B-Man

-Left 4 Dead by my favorite kitty B.
-Nintendo Wii U with two games included in the bundle, and the next two separate from an amazing Best Buy sale my parents and I spotted:
-Super Mario 3D World
-Nintendo Land
-Super Smash Bros Wii U
-Bayonetta 2 with the original game included.
-$125 from family
-S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Piccolo Action Figure from a friend

That actually may not be everything, some other friends and I may be giving each other Christmas gifts and I think my parents want to get me some toy for tradition, since they've been doing that since high school.

Best gifts in this thread by far, I'm so jealous.

--Whoogles! That is, "Who Googled That?" Ever typed in a few words in Google and got some really bizarre search suggestions? That's what these basically are, so I hope you're ready to have a giggle at some of the weirdest suggestions Google has given people.))

I got

-Smash Wii U, baby
-Mario Kart 8
-Wii U Pro Controller
-Electric shaver, because apparently no one wants to see my November beard ever again
-Some gift cards
-Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy, and X-Men on Blu-ray.
-comfortable PJ pants
-B got me Fallout 3 so I can mod it into New Vegas, LB got me Super Time Force and Shantae because those two together probably work, and I got a lot of good tidings all throughout
-Yokuba got me this manly figurine because I think he wants me to start an unhealthy habit.

And for myself I got a few games from the Steam sale so I can play them a few months later: Divinity Original Sin and Morrowind.

WELL

I didn't expect this but my brother pulled some strings and got some of my friends at church and parents to pitch in and buy me a Cintiq Companion Hybrid as a late birthday gift, because I spent my birthday in the hospital. I guess that kinda counts as part of the holiday haul.

Wait.

Scratch what I said above. Something arrived in the mail from my dad.

It's...

the Xenoblade Chronicles official soundtrack.

Now I'm pretty sure my holiday is over.

Image Fantastic! I'm gonna party like it's 1989!



Image Really, I can't recommend this soundtrack enough to everybody. Listening to these 91 songs has become a part of my daily life now. They always bring fond memories of my first time playing the game. The fact that I don't hear it talked about more on this forum brings feelings of sorrow in me. It's a truly tragic decision on their part for not getting into it in the first place, but I think given time, they will know the names of all these tracks too and dance to the mechanical rhythm it brings.
