Got a Sega Genesis mini. Now, I haven't really been able to get a chance to sit down and play it yet due to family commitments and all that. But I'm definitely looking forward to putting in some serious hours with it, as I've heard that it's really really good...

Whoa, nice haul! It’s ingrained in me as a kid that only 1 game for Christmas is the appropriate amount, but I’m happy for you. Which you gonna play first?

I just saw the trailer for Valfaris and I thought it looked awesome - it's going on my list.



I can say it is worth it. Very difficult game so far, Contra is easy in comparison. Reminds me a little of Turrican, do not know why...

Wow. I got two new suits, a new sportscoat, a pair of handmade leather dress shoes in stunning brown, a new drum machine, a bottle of Glenlivet and Luigi's Mansion III. You know, being an adult kind of sucks...

I got myself Games pass ultimate.

I have played and beaten The outer Worlds. The best game this gen.

there are 100 more games to play so it should be fun.

My pal also gave me his desk top PC. This is a really nice thing for him to do. I played SNK 40th edition which is utterly fabulous.

I also got myself a book on Java to work through on my Linux Mint which I had fun updating. Mint is far superior to Win 10 in many ways. Though you have to do a lot of the grunt work yourself. I am using a variation on the Chromebook.

Lastly I was given a book.
The Nostalgia Nerds Retro Tech. Which is about the most popular consoles and PCs. So far it is a superb introduction. Not that I need an introduction.

Heh, I got that, too! I took the dive on the "three months for $1" deal. I mean, at that price, why the hell not??

My wife likes the Untitled Goose Game. I downloaded the Xbox One port of Resident Evil 4, and had a good time playing it for a few hours. However, I thought that version of the game played a little wonky and looked a bit too sharp and "clean," and I found myself going back to the OG Gamecube version soon thereafter. Man, what a classic!

Late to the party, but I got a Playstation Classic from the missus.

I got back into the PS1 the 'proper' way 4-5 years ago, but it's just too expensive at this point in my life. Aside from how awesome the thing is once it's hacked (seriously, even menu's are better and have more love, care and attention put into them than anything Sony bothered to do), the best bonus is the games no longer looks like garbage on an HDTV compared to using the original console :lol:
