I hear ya man, GHWT cost me $180. v_v

360 for $40? Dayum.

Hehe. When I gave my sister FFIV DS, she completely freaked out and kept hugging me. It was very special.

Anyways, the rest of the gifts:

$200
MOAR Wii Points
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
A nice new fluffy robe. <3

Well, I got a call from my dad this morning at work saying that they weren’t sure what to get me. And with getting a new puppy (since I had to put one of my other dogs down a month ago) sometime after Christmas, my dad said they wanted me to have under the tree. So he told me to buy myself a game from work around $55 and he’d pay me back sometime later.

Well… I still haven’t gotten my XBox360 back and Microsoft claims it’ll take another week. We had used Xbox360. Between my discount and that money, it would only cost me $70. So I got it for myself to hold me over until mine comes back but oh hey… this one is freezing…

Other wise I guess you could say the stuff I bought on Steam (Indigo Prophecy, The Void, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R) were for me.

I received Yu-gi-oh Abridged Series t-shirt and the boxset of Red vs Blue so far.

He sold his school textbooks then paid 40 out of pocket. Also I got a better deal than him on Mass Effect I got mine for $14 I’ve become better at buying online at least for games. I’m going to buy hardware in store still though. Also wonder if SBF realizes you get 1 month of live free with a new 360? I know I used it to play Tekken 6 for about 2 weeks before the harddrive went out.

Updated. My last Christmas as a minor was quite awesome.

Since I didn’t ask for anything, I wasn’t disappointed. Not at all. . .

No PS3. >_> I’m not enough of a gaming progressive just yet.

I mean he basically got a ps3, they both just play movies

I’m curious as to why? I guess if you’ve got an HD TV. If you don’t have an HDTV it doesn’t make sense to me.
