Nothing. Here where i live the holidays aren't so commercialized and gift giving culture is not very developed. What we do instead is spend all our money on outrageously expensive parties.

I'm sad.

I got Lord of the Rings Online, Dragon Age Origins, and Torchlight. I've got to say Lotro is a really good MMO. the classes are all really fun to play.

I found the same when I got into it. I definitely like the defined classes of lotro more than the jack of all trades classes of wow.

as for what I got, this year it was about the giving, though I did blow some cash on some Steam games. I even sent a few of my non-gaming friends Braid for two bucks a piece.

I got a Guinea pig.

She can sit on my lap and make cool sounds while I fly things in EVE or raid in EQ2.

I got nuthin for Christmas, but that is cool. I got something for both my birthday and Xmas to use in February at a conference I am attending. However I did managed to pick up Stalker from Steam for $1.99.

On the Macbook/Pro "paper weight" jibe. I have been playing all sorts of PC games for quite a while on my MacbookPro. Modern Warfare runs lovely under Bootcamp, as does Wolfenstein, Champtions Online, Torchlight etc etc. These games are more stable on XP under Bootcamp than on an actual PC or so I have heard.

I don't know where people get these rumours. Obviously, if it's running XP, it is just as stable as XP, not more. So running a PC with XP or a Mac with XP under Bootcamp are the same thing, except for system specs. I prefer my gaming rig, but for MMOs you don't need the latest and best, so I suppose either will do fine.

As for what I got, I got COD:MW2. Yeah, I know, not much, but there wasn't anything else I wanted, atleast until Telus gets the Moto Droid ;)

A few Blu-Rays and some clothes.

But bought myself a Dell Zino HD lil PC for hooking up to the TV and it arrived Dec. 23rd so it was a great Christmas gift.

Should also note that I'm lucky enough to have a fantastic family and enjoyed every second of family time.

Qosmio X305-Q711 back in February as a pre-Christmas gift and Motorola Droid day after Thanksgiving. I made out like a bandit this year so next year it's just accessories probably.
