I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. I know I did. Did Santa bring you guys lots of games to enjoy? Unfortunately I did not get any games this Christmas, but that's because there really wasn't anything left to get me. I already bought every single game I wanted this year for myself. My girlfriend, however, did get a copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, so we are both really excited to get to play that.
I am really excited that I get all of next week off work. My goal is to wake up every day and play games until my girlfriend gets home from work at 5PM. It's going to be awesome. In that time I should be able to knock out Torchlight, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Assassin's Creed 2. I'm also going to an all day Modern Warfare 2 LAN party on Wednesday, so that should also kick lots of ass.
Well I gotta go, but I'm going to leave you al the with "12 Days of Destructoid Christmas" song I wrote and sang. I hope you enjoy!
