GoldeneyeGamer was my SecretSanta. I got some veey neat 3D printed items and a batch of homemade cookies! I was unable to enjoy the cookies as they arrived as tough as rocks, but the 3D printed items will be neat shelf pieces. The one that I enjoyed the most was a 3D logo of a team I run for World of Tanks. It looked like a poker chip and he had to do some research to get the image logo. Very thoughtful! I unfortunately did not take a pic of them before we stepped out of town, but they will go nicely amongst my collection. Thanks GEG!

My Secret Santa never officially revealed themselves however I do have a sneaking suspicion on who they may be.  



Will the real rlh please stand up? 

Thank you so much for the amazing gifts! 

Solomon's Key: Amazing. Everyone on NA should have this in their collection.  

Beavis and Butthead: This tape features the music of GWAR. Enough said. 

BattleClash: I wonder how this one holds up on Brock's list? 

Spyro & Spyro 2: Can't wait to play these! 

Gran Turismo & Ridge Racer: Oh hell yes, need to make it down the hash driveway first. 

Tetris, Pokemon Pinball & Pac man. Classics! 

Brutal Legend: Going to dip some Jack Link's and play this one tonight!

Special shout out to JamesRobot & Richardhead for hooking my candy up with a Powerpack, that's it boys I'm out of the NES collecting game  

Also a big thank you to captmorgandrinker for being a killer Santa. Yes I did snag Okilly Dokilly tickets and will catch them on the ReNeducation tour this Feb. Will send a postcard from the donut hell mosh pit.

My SS was Acidjaguar. THANK YOU SO MUCH! As I said earlier, my wife said no presents this year, so yours were the only presents I had under the tree. So thankful. Knocked out 5 games off the SNES list and 4 obscure NP mags I was missing. Merry Christmas!!

EDIT - gonna have to post pics later because I cant do it from my phone apparently.

My SS was SnoopKatt, and he did an amazing job  


Got an xbox Atlus game I needed, 3 awesome imports, and a hilariously adorable coin bank.  Also, the games are in fantastic shape!  I am VERY happy with these additions, so he did a great job!

Not pictured above, is perhaps the best gift of all that was a really awesome surprise.  He knows I'm involved with a child advocacy charity, and he made a financial contribution to our local chapter.  That was completely above and beyond, and really means a lot to me.

Thank you so much for your awesome gift - you did an excellent job and I really appreciate everything!

Hello!  I want your "ATLUS" stuff!  Please see my list or send me a PM if you have cool ATLUS stuff!

My SS was Megamanfan.  I made my family wait to open presents so that these were the first opened this Christmas.  They didn't appreciate it anywhere near as much as I did!  Thanks so much for the games!  You knocked some great games off my want list, and I can't wait to sit down and play them while I'm off this week.  Merry Christmas!

I love it, thank you very much and I hope you had a great Christmas!

I asked for unlicensed NES games, and was surprised not only by the ammound, but also by the great selection. Have been playing them for a bit and stuff like Spiritual Warfare and Crystal Mines are pretty good games, certainly a lot better than some of the unlicensed Gluk games we got here. Thanks for the awesome gift, I really appreciate it, this Christmas wasn't that great for me but this defenitly redeemed it.


That was me, hope you enjoy them. Sorry, I forgot to put a letter in there with it.

My secret santa was kemp175 and he went above and beyond. When I opened the box, I had a ton of individually wrapped gifts. I saved them for Christmas Day and, when I opened them, I was excited to see that he helped me knock off a few games I needed towards my complete Long Box set (including DiscWorld) which is a little harder to find). He also gave me a CIB N64 game I needed, and three Gameboy Advance games (2 sealed). Aside from all that, he also sent a PS2 game, a manual I needed, an NA patch and some figures I will be putting up on my selves. Thanks again Dane!

Some great stuff shown off so far! I still need to get my pic up; Vec hooked me up with some Yakuza goodies and Japanese candy.

Extra thanks to those of you that pulled international duty this year.

Thanks a lot man, I really appreciate it!  









My only complaint was that I immediately guessed what it was just based on the shape of the box, but that just made me more hyped to open it up on Christmas Eve  


Your welcome!! Merry Christmas!! Glad I didn’t buy you all 3 lol

I am glad you liked your gift bundle! I tried keeping my purchases to local stores this year to support the small stores. Fortunately they had some games from your list. Threw in the cozy as a random goodie, but hopefully it brought back some cool times at Blockbuster lol.

Shout out to SNESNESCUBE64 for making the 3D printed items! Thanks!

Lmao not at all truly a lucky guess!!!!

Thanks to my SS!  Unless I 100% missed it, I'm not sure who this is even though they left clues as to who they were, but feel free to call me out on not knowing!  

Anyway, here's my gifts!  These games are all on my rather long backlog of desires, so I'm more than happy with these gifts!



But what's that one wrapped gift!





Nice! (And, no, I do not have a copy of this!).  A bit of context.  A little while ago, I posted that I'd like to start collecting gaming items that kids had made or marked up.  This isn't just any copy of the Final Fantasy III official strategy guide, but a well-loved one that has plenty of highlighting and notes.  This will go nicely with my collection.  Here are a few images of some of the notes inside.

  

So, thank's Secret Santa, whoever you were!  I love these gifts and I hope you had a happy Christmas and a wonderful coming new year!

Ha, well, you're welcome and it was definitely me.  

I  also had no clue that guessing who the SS organizer was, was part of the game. (I'll remember that next year!) So, thanks CaptainMorganDrinker!  Also, I actually thought it was you, Murray, who was SS since you seemed so pumped and excited about this year.

Sorry for the double-post but I wanted to give my SS their moment!  Merry Christmas everyone.

My SS was the man himself, capt! I got a tonne of games and honestly capt went above and beyond as always. Got some Metroid goodies, as well as some Atari stuff and a few NES games I asked for. Sadly Eliminator Boat Duel got damaged in transit but other than that it was an amazing gift. I'll snap a pic of the Atari games later and I'll also show my Metroid stuff in my Metroid shrine  
By the way did my package arrive capt? It's sadly way less than what you've sent me and I would've definitely added more stuff if I knew but I hope you still enjoyed it

My phones camera doesn't work so I can't take a picture, but my SS got me the box to a game I already had CI for, and inside of the box were a bunch of yugioh GBA games and Pokémon Red rescue team, one I actually didn't have yet. Still not sure who it was, but thanks a bunch!
