I had a pretty good haul:
Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas
Cradle of Filth – the Manticore (and Other Horrors)
Inquisition – Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm
My Dying Bride – a Map of All Our Failures
Septicflesh - Communion
ticket to Sigur Ros (early gift, bought it in November)
WWE '13 for PS3
Red Dead Redemption for PS3
A Mass Effect 3 calender (my favorite gift, insuring that my obsession with ME lasts for another twelve months, but sadly no months devoted to Liara T'Soni)
Some gift cards (iTunes, Ticketmaster, restaurants)
a years subscription to Decibel Magazine, plus the 100 Best Death Metal albums issue
a few other metal mag's (I still read print media)

I got my wife an iPad, and my sons way to many toys. But let me tell you; Christmas takes on a whole other meaning when your kids start realizing what's going on. My six month old had no clue, but my two and a half year old was loving it. Ripping open paper, his eyes popping out of his head, asking me to open the box so he could play with whatever, then getting even more excited when he saw that there was more.

Plus, I got it times four, so fuck you all. I win this thread.


EDIT: Plus, the big gift we got for my oldest son was a Nintendo 3DS, which I think is pretty fucking cool and you bet your asses I'll be playing with it, so even on the materialistic side of things, I still win this thread. :fist:

12-26-2012, 09:29 PM
I did pretty good, got back more in value than I spent, which I was seriously hoping for considering I am broke :lol: and I told the big players for christmas (parents, grandma) to pretty much just give me money for that reason, so I did okay there :p Other than that I got:

-Kamelot - Silverthorn the fancy limited edition (have yet to listen, I suck)
-Pants (they don't fit me because they are a slim style and my bulge is disturbingly visible in them :eyes: so i'll be returning them)
-Buncha books I don't really feel like listing em all but my reading backlog just got bigger
-Some board games (also no list) because I'm very into them and quite a few were lost to Sandy
-Card sleeves ...for magic :dorky:

I was pleasantly surprised because my family was honestly a lot more generous than I ever expected them to be. :eyes:

This version was available Stateside too wasn't it? Here it was exclusive to Game Stop.

Amazon and Game had special editions, but with a coin instead of the statue, and only one of the DLC packs.

I'll take and post proper photos of it, instead of the publicity ones, soon. It's still at my parents' place and I had to leave this morning for work. Going back at the weekend.
