Well, there goes the holiday weekend ...

The husband and I opened half of our Christmas gifts last night--and two of mine were games! Here's one of them:

Don't worry, I didn't have my parents buy me the Japanese version of Donkey Kong Country Returns; I just used the Japanese cover art here because I like its green accents.

Unfortunately, I already own the second game I received as a gift: Art Academy. I think I'm going to exchange it for Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light--or maybe Mario vs. Donkey Kong Mini-Land Mayhem!

Was Santa good to all of you? I sure hope so! Let me know if you got any game-related gifts, OK?

Nothing from the parents, and Robb and I have yet to open our gifts to each other. I'm hoping for at least one game, and top on my list is DKCR, for sure! He said he got me 3 shall see what any of them are.

I got my sister Just Dance 2, and it kicked our asses this afternoon...I was sweating like a hog, but it was soooooo much fun! And the song list? Amazing. It's Raining Men? Yes, please!

Oh, I hope you get at least one game, Justin! My fingers are crossed for you :)

Also, I'm glad to hear you and your sister liked Just Dance 2! My mom isn't going to be able to try it for a while (long story), but I'm certain she'll like it when she finally gets around to it. If not, I told her that she can send it to me (I'll get her a different game in return).

Viewtiful_Justin said...

Heck yes. It's so fun!

And...we opened presents yesterday. Robb got my DKCR, Kirby's Epic Yarn, AND Epic Mickey! He spoiled the shit out of me!

Bryan Ochalla said...

WOW! Go Robb!! :)

Well, I will be interested to hear your thoughts on all three games eventually :)

I was also spoiled beyond belief by my significant other this holiday. How about this list? :D

Alan Wake, 360
Call of Duty: Black Ops, PS3
Enslaved, 360
God of War: Ghost of Sparta, PSP
Super Mario Galaxy 2, Wii

I felt a bit bad as well, since I only bought ONE christmas present and that one is still stuck in the post somewhere in the world. :)

Bryan Ochalla said...

Wow! Good going, Starfighter! I'm completely jealous.

BTW, I've decided to exchange my second copy of Art Academy for FF: The 4 Heroes of Light. Can't wait until it arrives!

Starfighter said...

I would've taken Art Academy off your hands at a generous price if I only could have picked it up by bike. :)

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, sure, now you tell me -- after I've returned it :) Of course, I don't imagine you live in Seattle ... right?

Starfighter said...

Well, it's about 4900 miles to Seattle from here so I'd have to bike for a few days and swim a little bit but it could have worked!

You say that like it would have been difficult or something :P
