I'm getting these games in the next few weeks: Super Mario 3D Land (3DS) The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii) Mario Kart 7 (3DS)
Therefore, this is my Christmas Wishlist for 2011: Assassinís Creed Revelation (PS3) Batman Arkham City (PS3) Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (PS3) Fable III (X360) Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary (X360) Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PS3) Mortal Kombat (PS3) Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Blu-Ray) Supernatural Season 2 (Blu-Ray) Supernatural Season 6 (Blu-Ray) Supernatural: The Anime Series (Blu-Ray)
I'm not getting anywhere near all of this, of course. The titles I want the most are in blue. The rest I can get for myself next year.
Thanks. I saw that earlier. But I never stay in line for anything, with the only exception being the Wii launch on that cold day of December 2006. Since Uncharted 3 is a door buster, I don't think I am going to spend 2 hours in a cold night to maybe save $30. Plus, I have no real rush for any new game at the moment except for Skyward Sword.
I am eying the following games if I find a good deal that takes the minimum amount of effort (such as ordering from Amazon, or price drop on regular business hours):
-Uncharted 3 -Little Big Planet 2 -Assassin's Creed: Revelation -Red Dead Redemption: GOTY Version -Saint's Row The Third -Star Fox 64 -Super Mario 3D Land -Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition -Aliens: Infestation -Halo: Anniversary
I am still in a dilemma about Cave Story 3D and Shinobi. Cave Story because I am not sure if I dig the 3D graphics and I definitely do not dig the $40 price tag. Shinobi because I don't have the time to play super challenging games when my backlog is nearing triple digits.
@gencid Yeah, Cave Story at $40 when you can get it for $10 on the DSi shop is a really bad price. If it goes down to $20 then I'll get it. You are eyeing a good selection of games there. I'm not really into Saint's Row, but everything else sounds good.
@Mr_Mustache Man shoes is another nice idea. A hot new pair of sneakers. I'm so bad at this though like... of course I have a fairly good idea what she would like. But then I also think when it comes to clothes, if I just buy her something it might be pretty close to what she wants, but not what she ACTUALLY wants. But if I ask her first, it ruins the surprise, right? Hmm. I guess that is what the months leading up to Christmas are for, digging for hints.
I hate receiving clothes for any occasion. I think clothes are very personal things that only someone with hugely intimate knowledge of you (like a spouse) should gift. If anyone is going to buy me clothes, I prefer to go with them to the store.
Awesome discussions about gift buying. I'm terrible at gift buying, but sometimes my wife has been happy with what I get her!
Anyway, as for my wishlist, I really do think the list is light. I don't need any more games for the rest of the year. I've got SM3DL, I'm getting Skyward Sword and Mario Kart 7... and I have a stack of unplayed games that I really want to get into, and includes DS, 3DS, and Wii games.
Maybe I will ask for points cards so I can get some more WiiWare, Wii VC, and 3DS VC games too!
Actually, I need to get Kirby Mass Attack and Kirby's Return to Dream Land, but I don't know if I'm just going to get them on my own or ask for them.
Man, I only have Nintendo systems and I still can't keep up with everything I want to play.
@sirmastersephiroth Well, I have a pretty good idea what kind of shoes and hat and mittens she would wear. And I did buy her a t-shirt before, which she wears sometimes. She's not really a t-shirt type, but it was so perfect so I had to bite, and I think she likes it.
