No apologies necessary Andyman - I really liked the gifts and I thought you'd put in a great effort. I very much appreciated the gifts of DriveClub, BLOPS II on Wii U and especially the '#1 Bargain Hunter' mug with my Frank Sidebottom avatar plastered across it. I don't feel right about re-gifting DriveClub or selling it on, so would you like me to post it back to you?

Really happy to see the calibre of gifts this year, especially all the sealed games. I was thinking of not taking part, but I'm glad I did. Well played, everybody!

Father Christmas

Good thing you had a rethink, as I did not have a 3DS. Used to, but I had to sell it a while ago. The replacement gifts were stellar though!

Also the book is pretty interesting (and quite shocking, genuinely can't believe there are still issues like saying "good for a girl" and expecting only women to make tea, I must be pretty lucky to totally avoid all the sexist twats).
Yay! Another Gnamer feminist.

That's good - I hope that you enjoy your presents. I just remembered the grief I got from the sales assistant in Thorntons when I asked for the slab of chocolate to have 'fastpie' written on it. She reacted that I'd shat on her maw's cock.

EDIT: Andyman - I'm going to try to get DriveClub sent to you today.

Sorry for the late reply, was away over Christmas and left my gift at home so only got around to opening it yesterday.

Got a great haul of games. Manhunt 2 and Red Steel on Wii, both are games i've been meaning to pick up for ages. Arkham Origins Blackgate* and Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy on 3DS - again played neither previously and look like the sort of thing I'll enjoy. Also 100 Classic Book Collection for DS - I've mentioned before how little I read so that'll need to change - and Magic Made Fun on DS too, hadn't heard of this but looks interesting, comes with a deck of cards too, not sure if I ever mentioned it here or if it was just a good guess but I love learning about magic tricks and stuff so hopefully I can learn some nifty tricks from this.

Also a couple of fruit snack bar things - ain't tried them yet.


Awesome gifts all round, will need to get my 3DS charged and Wii set back up pronto. Massive thanks to whoever bought for me and thanks to Drunka for running this and allowing me to join in.

Before i opened this i mentioned to family that this was the first year i can remember where i didnt get any videogames. GNamer saved Christmas.

*Autocorrect tried changing this to Arkham Origins: Blackface , lolwtfm8 way to bring whole more racist meaning to The Dark Knight

A fine haul, Mr. Lemon! Who did you gift for? And, in fact, I don't think we know who gifted to you! A man of mystery indeed. Confused

I bought for Mr ZeroJones. Hope it wasn't too much of a disappointment, I did quite a bit of research early on and came up with some ideas on gifts, then lost track of time due to how incredibly busy it got at work. Left me with a lot less time so had to go down the quick route of panic buying on Amazon with direct delivery. Duh!

I was Dead Lemon's secret santa. Glad he enjoyed my gifts. I wasn't sure what console he had, so I tried to cover all eventualities with DS, 3DS and Wii games. I included the chocolate in case he somehow didn't have access to any of these. Something to enjoy, whatever the circumstances Grin

Curious who sent mine, though.

You done good Axis. Thumbs Up!

When I realised it was games I was worried it'd be something for the Wii U which I don't (yet) own.

Fortunately I have the required platforms for the games you got me - even if they've been somewhat neglected in recent years. Have some time off from work later this month so going to get the Wii set back up for some game time.

A deserved bump, as I forgot to show youse this.



I went two weeks without noticing that there was another design on the mug that Andyman gave me as part of the Secret Santa. Just look at it. It's fantastic. I thought it was a nice gift beforehand, but Andyman's played a belter here.  Love

I have been thinking about the thread, but it was November 1st last year and I reckon that'll be about right again.

We've got Christmas stuff at work as well Rolling Eyes
