Merry Christmas from Destructoid: Tell us what you got!

12:00 PM on 12.25.2010 // Jim Sterling

Merry Christmas from Destructoid, fools! It is Christmas day, where we celebrate the date that Pope Julius I decided upon for the relocation of Jesus Christ's birthday. 

Of course, Christmas is supposed to be about all that peace and love nonsense, but we all know that it's really about the swag. So, once again we ask what kind of neat stuff you received! Share your latest haul with the Destructoid community, and read on below to see what the Destructoid editors received!


Sterling: I already got an early gift, which is the rather nice coat that has popped up in Jimquisitions. I also got a very appreciated Father Ted boxset. Watched the Christmas special this morning and it is still hilarious stuff. Oh, and a Trinity Killer Bobblehead.

Aziz: I think I got trolled by King Friday as I know own a giant Jeff Gordon NASCAR number "24" poster. So, uh, that's the only Christmas thing I expect. Wait, I'll count those cookies from 2K too.

Niero: GorillaNation sent me monkey slippers

Grim: This was the best Christmas in years because I built myself a shiny new PC with my own money. No need for a middleman. If I get anything worth mentioning, I'll do another response.

Sarkar: My mom already told me she got me a sweater. If anything else comes along, I'll let you folks know.


Bennett: I got an iPhone4 and another secret, really amazing present that I can't tell you guys about. But it's amazing. :)

Chester: I got some awesome stuff, but am under NDA until next Christmas.

Tolentino: Got four t-shirts and a luggage weighing scale (wut), but I GAVE my 11-year old nephew a copy of Demon's Souls. Will he think it a gift or like a lump of coal?

Long: I got precisely what I needed most: a plane ticket home and clothes. Merry Christmas, everyone! :D

North: I got a ton of shit. I'm fuckin' spoiled.

Holmes: I don't know about you guys, but at this point in my life, the only stuff I get for Christmas is stuff that I didn't want enough to buy myself, and stuff that I didn't know existed. In the first colum, I got four games; Super Mario All-Stars Wii, Vanquish, Goldeneye, and Fling Smash. All great games, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a tad partial towards Dick.

In the second column I got some Pac-Man pants. They are... Pac-Man pants. I will wear them. 

Finally, since I was back at my folks' house, I went into my old room and found a bunch ot +10 year old stuff that I plan to use as set dressing for a new show I'm working on. I was particularly happy to find and old Servbot plushie, my import copy of Tobal 2, and... 

A Boglin. A one-handed Boglin. 

Pics to come.

Razak: Ok, not all my gifts since I was at my future in-laws house, but I got pleny of candy, a hilarious cow hat, two gorgeous ties, a pair of James Bond cufflinks, a book on Eiji Tsuburaya (the guy behind Godzilla and Ultraman), some kitchen stuff, and. Schott brothers pea coat (basically bthe nicest pea coat you can own, its amazing). More to come when I see my parents and other family tomorrow.

Taking a break from Fallout 4 to try out Twitch Creative. Catch me painting Chun-Li while listening to an eclectic mix of Alex G, DJ Shadow, and Modest Mouse. [img][/img]

So far from first impressions of my Freedom Planet indie box its 100% more worth it than lootcrate. Whereas lootcrate you get a bunch of stuff you may or may not like, indie box gives you indie games, and stuff related to that game, such as the soundtrack

When one game is rated 7.4 and another 7.6, Are you telling me one game is 0.2 worse than the other. WHAT!?!

I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?

Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.

a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens.

Community Question: Following from yesterday's Community Question, how would you feel if reviewers began assigning two scores to a game? One specifically for the technical aspects/performance of the game, and the other for their own personal enjoyment?

I went back to Persona 4 Golden this weekend, asked Chie to be my girlfriend but then accidentally maxed out my social link with Yumi, changed my relationship status to "It's Complicated" on Personabook. [img][/img]

You know what Fallout 4 mod I want to see? One to fix the interior lightning. It's like the silliest thing to get fixated over, but I can't seem to ignore how white and bright some of those inside lights are.

I wish the Squid Girl outfit was still a dress for boys. I want to live through my Inkling boy and be a cute girly-man, dammit. [img][/img]

Well, it seemed like for two seconds people were finally going to give Star Fox a fair shake, but nope! GameXplain's YouTube audience seem pretty insistent that it's just a Star Fox 64 clone down to the graphics. Sometimes I just don't understand peopl

I don't think it will happen, but if the NX is turns out to be a VR device, I will be the saddest boy in the milky way.
