Title: Christmas 2018
Post by: Toadgamer on December 05, 2018, 01:34:31 PM
So, Christmas is 20 days later! I don't know why no-one started a thread on this, but maybe I'm too early. But well, someone had to start one!

Rule of thumb for me: it's not Christmastime until after my birthday. :dk:

I've been seeing Christmas trees in the open and decorations for a few weeks, now. If someone told me Christmas had already passed, I'd believe them.

Technically, it already had passed. A bunch of them have.

I currently have a device that has a countdown to Christmas. It is my family's tradition to open a few presents on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas day.

Huh, even me and Koops have this tradition!

Already got the tree set up. (Well actually, it's been up since December 1st but I couldn't contain my enthusiasm for much longer.)

I got some early Christmas presents a few days ago. They are handed down from my mother to me two Amy Grant albums, two Don Francisco albums, and a Keith Urban album. I know Amy Grant and Keith Urban before my mother gave them to me. I never heard of Don Francisco before I got the albums. And the are are around a decade old.

Alright! Christmas Eve is tomorrow! The festivities are starting. And also, this year, since no-one is coming to dinner with me, we'll open all the presents in Christmas Eve. So tomorrow, I might get Smash Ultimate!

I got me a Merle Haggard album and a three movie in one pack for Blu-Ray. Now let's see what I have in me stocking in the morning. I hope I get some Fire Emblem Cipher cards. Just because it is only released in Japan doesn't mean I can't get them. My late father had got his swords from Japan, and I have my Marth and Cloud Amiibos from Japan.

I haven't gotten all my Christmas presents yet, but so far I've gotten an audio splitter, two different multi-use pens, an Incredibles 2-themed deck of cards, a pencil case, and--best of all--the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia!  That book is so big (it's 256 pages long!), and so far I've found it mostly accurate and learned a few little things myself.  It even goes over glitches as if they were intended secrets!  There is one error that bugs me, though.  It consistently states that the first unmodified American release of The Lost Levels was the Wii U VC release in 2014, when in fact it was actually the original Wii VC release in 2007.  But all in all, I'm happy with my presents so far!

So, I can now add Smash Ultimate to what I got, because I got it a couple of minutes ago. I ordered it from GameStop. But it took roughly 7 HOURS to arrive. But hey, I got it, I'm playing it right now!
Title: Re: Christmas 2018
Post by: Alex95 on December 25, 2018, 02:01:24 PM
I got stuff!

- Candy, because that's always nice
- New sneakers
- New sweat pants
- A sleeping Pikachu figure
- Smash Bros. Samus amiibo
- Punch-Out!! for Wii

Punch-Out is giving me issues, though. When I insert it, the system crashes, whether it's Wii or Wii U. Something's wrong with the disc it seems, but it's a different message than just "The disc could not be read", the disc won't even appear to be loading. It's a straight up system error, so uh... help?

I've gotten more presents, including:
-Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition
-another multi-use pen
-a LEGO-Snap Circuits hybrid set
-another Snap Circuits set that uses an Arduino
-a tabletop basketball/hockey arena
-some new clothes
-candy, of course

And this still isn't all!  I'll be getting even more presents tomorrow, and I'm positive that it will include Smash Ultimate (and hopefully also that Kirby amiibo I wanted).  I can't wait!

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I also got new earbuds.  They're so much better than my old ones, and even as I type, I'm listening to the Pop Star theme from Kirby 64!

-Gift cards
--TGI Fridays
--Burger King
--McDonald's
--JC Penney
-A blanket
-Peppermint scented bar soap

I mean it's not like I can expect my family to get me video game stuff anymore. They see that as not age-appropriate for an adult :P

And to be fair, all my presents to them were gift cards (except Grandpop, I got him a puzzle) so it evens out.

I did unlock the JP version of the BIS remake the following day.
