Alistair wrote up a really good holiday gift guide that you all can send to your more clueless friends and relatives. I wouldn't know which type of gamer I'd say I am to direct their purchases though. All of the games on there look like pretty solid gifts to me.
Otherwise, the Podtoid crew released another episode, Jim reviewed FarCry 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City turned ten years old, and quite a bit more happened today.
