Yes, yes, Christmas is over. Hanukkah is nearing an end (I Think..?) too. Most of us gave gifts, but we also received them too. Go ahead and make us drool over what you got.

Here's what I got. I don't have any pictures yet, but I will soon.

*Sony PS3 60gb
-Resistance: Fall of Man
-Madden NFL Football 2007
-Tiger Woods Golf 2007
-Blazing Angels (Really neat flight game)
-Extra Sixaxis Controller and USB Charging Cable
-HD Component Cables (You havent played a PS3 till youve played it in 1080i resolution!)
-The Sopranos: Road to Respect (ps2 game, but I wanted it anyways)
*Monopoly Here and Now edition
*New computer chair because I broke the last one.


So, what all did YOU get?

Well, got:

– some new clothes (a suit, finally!)
– a new external HD
– some audio CDs
– some books and
– a brand new 80GB 5.5gen Video iPod :D That's enough for me...

That's what I got from my parents. My other relatives often give money and I will make something up to spend it on, that's for sure... :wink:

I got a printer. That's it, one present (and I already had a printer). I spent a fortune buying gifts for everyone else too. Next year I think I'm going to go the Scrooge route. Yeah I know, giving is more important than receiving but it was still kind of depressing. :lol:

What a coincidence, I once had a Jornada 720 as well. It was the greatest Windows CE device I'd ever had until I switched to PDAs running Linux.

It's actually not that bad of a game. I gave it a few runs, but it surely doesn't beat a lot of previous Sonic games. They seem to be getting worse as years progress. STH (Next Gen.) for 360/PS3 looks pretty good, but I think the 16-bit era ones were the best.

i agree. i bought sonic mega collection a while ago and it is sweet, i just started playing the games on the sonic gems disc, which has the more modern ones (and the good games are the bloody gamegear versions) are rather boring (sonic r, sonic fighters).
