    Americans/Canadians etc may not find that anything unusual, but here in Northern Ireland - it's rather rare. ^^

    Merry Xmas All.

    I just got Tales of Symphonia and Baten Kaitos. No new computer, no pets, no Photoshop or DS. And no snow, either. :cry: What a rip-off.
  7. Yeah, don't you just hate it when you get two of the year's hottest games? (Actually, I know I'd be disappointed if I got those, too. They do nothing for me.)

    -Sing a Mighty Song (CD of my friend's choir from last year)
    -Uncle John's Slightly Irregular Bathroom Reader
    -Mario Party 6
    -Devotions by Dead People (book)
    -food (two jars of jalepeños, a jar each of black and green olives, two jars of hot sauce, chocolate-covered raisins, Skittles, Icy squares, two Caramilks, strawberry wafer cookies, Pot of Gold, Lindt and Ferrero Rocher chocolates, and 20 each of Original and Pepperoni Hot Rods...urp)
    -$200 total in cash, and a $50 gift card for ebGames

    Stay tuned, my birthday presents come tomorrow and on New Year's!

    I got Donkey Konga and The Minish Cap (no surprises there) and... MOJIB RIBBON! It's the sequel to Vib Ribbon, and it's VERY WEIRD. It also requires that you can read Japanese, as nothing at all is in English. Even the scoring is in kanji numbers(!).

    Anyway, I can't read Japanese (keep trying to learn but don't actually have time for lessons), so I had to work out what to do with the aid of a translation FAQ... but it turns out to be another rhythm action game of the very-simple-yet-challenging school (hooray!). You use the right analogue stick to write text on the screen as the character "raps" it.

    Very simple. Very addictive. So pretty.

    I gave some super-cool presents as well. Richard got 3 t-shirts which said on them: "Losing faith in humanity - one person at a time", "Classically trained" with a picture of a SNES on it, and Happiness is a warm ewok. Tim & Peter got a Hello Kitty haiku book, cuddly moose and baaaaaaby animals calendar. And most of our relatives got excessively nice chocolate plus a donation to charity made on their behalf (I bought a few acres of rainforest, some trees to be planted in London, and chickens for African villages).
