That I know of because I was there when we purchased it:

  • PS4 Slim bundled with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  • Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection (PS4)
  • Rocksmith 2014 Remastered (PS4)

Gift Exchange at my grandparents house:

  • The Multiversity (Paperback) by Grant Morrison
  • The Books of Magic (Paperback) by Neil Gaiman
  • Wal-mart Gift Card for the rest

Our gift exchange has to be $50 this year. The two books on my list was total $35 from Amazon.com and the Wal-mart gift card for the rest I might just purchase a Playstation store card.

SUPER MARIO MAKER LEVELS:

  • SMB Mix-Up! (1AB2-0000-0047-5A7D)
  • Storm the Castle (77BD-0000-00E0-A9C0)

I finally bought myself a Shaving brush set with an early Christmas gift card. i've been looking for a way to get a closer shave with less irritation, and damn, I'm impressed.  This kit works very well. I also feel a bit more sophisticated while using it too. Nyaa

I don't think I'll be getting much.  I know I'm getting a Shovel Knight Amiibo from the kids and a Kensington blackbelt case for my new Pro4 from the wife.  Very stoked for the blackbelt.  It'll transform my sleek Pro4 into a hulking militaristic piece of rubber, but at least I won't have to worry about taking it out and about.  It's so thin I fear I might accidentally snap it, and it's also a lot bigger than my previous pro2, making it kind of hard to hold in one hand when using it.

Not technically a christmas gift, but I kickstarted 'Beasts of Balance' back in february and I just received it in the mail a week ago or so.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor beasts of balance

It's as fun as I imagined it to be (which is plenty, before anyone makes a snarky comment) and I can see this being played a lot during the Christmas/New Year period.

It's a stacking game that works in tandem with an app.  It's pretty clever.  You play coop and try to rack up as many points as possible.  The app knows what piece you've played through the use of NFC and a scale.  You've got the titular beasts, which you can then cross and mutate with other pieces for bonuspoints.  There are even 2 'miracles' that function as multipliers but require you to keep an eye on stuff on the tablet while you play as well.  It's fun for kids as it's very tactile, and it's a pretty deep system as well.

Yes.  Yes I did.  Art of balance is a boring, mindnumbing game which should have died with the Wii but they keep reviving for release on every. other. new. Nintendo console.

Beatst of Balance on the other hand is ace.
