Christmas Loot Thread 2014

Recommended Posts

Mostly money so far. I bought myself a SNES Everdrive with it.

I'm also considering much of the products I bought myself in October and such early Christmas presents as well.

Update. Bestbuy and Walmart Gift card. The walmart one i'm gonna exchange at a kiosk in a local supermarket for something else. The Best Buy one. Well =)

That's going to help significantly in getting computer parts.

clothes, clothes and more clothes :-P

Today I looted a cool $100 and an AKAI MPKmini (still waiting on the AKAI website to start working again so I can register it and nab all the downloadables). I also got a roomy SPIGEN New Coated Backback 2, which I really need since my old bookbag has bit the dust (I've been using it since middle school, so I'm glad it survived this long). I'll probably gift myself with a physical copy of bLiNd's newest album as well.

I also gifted myself with Mega Man V, VI, and VII for the Wii U Virtual Console, along with Shovel Knight (again for Wii U). Holy shit is that game fun, and the music is top notch.

Oh! Can't forget my OCR Secret Santa stuff:

Four cool CD albums: Three by Flexstyle (Eye of the Storm, Don't Try This At Home, Trace Vector OST), and one copy of Porter Robinson's "Worlds", as well as a couple of Don't Try This At Home stickers and a Flexstyle wristband/bracelet... thing.

I'll update when I have my second Christmas with my family tomorrow night (Secret Santa round 2!).

(Actually it's a tiny desktop drumkit for messing around on xD)

It's a good year! \o/

Amazon gift card

Wii U Pro Controller

Hammerwatch (Steam game)

Miracle on 34th Street

The Godfather Trilogy

Back to the Future Trilogy

Nvidia GTS450 (a replacement for my GTX260 to enable DX11 games)

More to come when Addie's family arrives tomorrow...

Update: Got a Zelda Amiibo and NES Remix Pack for Wii U from the inlaws -- the latter highly recommended if you kick a lot of ass at old games.

But honestly I'm just happy that I made a lot of new friends this year and enjoyed my time with the ones I already have. Really couldn't ask for more than that.

This year I got:

A three-piece luggage set that will come in handy for when I go to MAGFest.

A ticket to see the Blue Man Group perform in March.

A couple Forgotten Realms books.

A belt that I sorely needed.

A Samus Amiibo.

$55 worth of Nintendo eShop funds. Already used some of that on getting Shovel Knight and Mega Man Battle Network on Wii U.

And various types of candy and money.

I'm very grateful for everything I received this year and I'm glad that the gifts I got everyone were appreciated as well.

Thus far, I've gotten these things:

- A nice, tidy sum of cash (much needed)

- pajama pants

- t-shirt

- 3 packs of caramel Digestive Biscuits (UK friends will know what I'm talking about :-D)

- carrying case for my Akai MPK49

- Barnes and Noble gift card, fairly large

- a couple of coffee mugs (which I collect)

- my little sisters got me a spatula and some measuring spoons, which was quite thoughtful of them as I'll be moving out and in need of such things soon

- black licorice wheels

- coupon for a nice dinner (with guest) at my sister's house.

- Iguana Deuces golden habanero pepper hot sauce

- Coffee Bean gift card

- four giant volumes of sci-fi/fantasy short stories courtesy of Secret Santa, The Damned.

All of which is very much appreciated, and makes me feel incredibly, unjustifiably loved by many, many people. :-D :-D

You guys are spoiled as shit. My Christmas loot list this year is a small fraction of all that.

First world problems. (But I kinda feel the same, hahaha -- more presents to come once the money is put to the bank :D)

In my defence, I have a big family - I have 8 sets of aunts / uncles and their offspring, and there's still a handful that are still happy to give me presents beyond childhood. We're close knit for the most part x)

I got my hand pinned in between (and under) a 600lb welding table and a hand truck and managed not to lose my fingers. I also got some other stuff but the continued existence of my fingers was easily the best Christmas present.

I'm a 27 year old adult male. I got to work a double and make some overtime pay. Parents got me new shoes, brought me Christmas food at work, and mom even made me some peanut butter fudge. It was a pretty great day. I didn't even ask for anything cause, like I said, I'm an adult male.
