Merry Christmas Everyone from your pal DrFinkelstein!
Just wanted to wish you all a great day today (and a wonderful holiday in general). Use this thread to post any funny/embarrassing family stories if you'd like, or share what stash/haul you made out with this Christmas whether gaming related or not. Just talk about the holiday in general if you'd like!
If you're a Pushmo gamer, please enjoy this new level I made!
And feel free to visit the Secret Santa thread to see how it all turned out! Again, Merry Christmas everyone!
I don't have any embarrassing stories to share unfortunately As for gifts, I ended up getting the entire series of Harry Potter on blu ray I also got a shirt and a couple of Toblerone bars, one dark chocolate
I'm not sure which level... hmm... I've beaten the main campaign but I dunno why these levels are locked so late. They do involve some later things but I don't think those gameplay elements come in THAT late. Arg!
Yeah, but I can understand why cause it's made to work with any DS system (sans DSXL). But it's charging in picture two, and the cord hangs nicely over his arm and doesn't fall behind my desk, so it looks great anyway IMO.
My favorite Christmas memory comes from holiday 1977.
Star Wars (org.) was all the rage that year and as a young 8-year-old lad, I fell hook, line and sinker for the requisite merchandising.
A couple weeks before Christmas my dad, older brother and I were at Lechmere's Department store where we spied a couple of fine looking light saber toys. Back then it was basically a flashlight handle (with colored film over the lens) and a milky white plastic sword attachment. Not knowing any better I fell in love on the spot.
My dad realized that since we were there and the item was actually in stock, it was prudent to just buy it on the spot. He told us that we would obviously have to wait 'till Christmas to open them.
For two weeks, my brother would steal my dad's car keys, sneak out our bedroom window, retrieve the light sabers so we could toy around with them after lights-out, and then deftly put them and the keys back. It didn't help that I was living in Boston and we had record snows that season. My poor brother tromped out there in the snow wearing nothing but PJs and maybe reg. shoes.
But he was industrious about it. So much so, that he charged me $1 for each trip. Hey, he was doing all the work, right? Not sure where my 8-year-old self came up with all the dollar bills for late night Star Wars saber battles, but I scraped the money together to make it happen.
Some of my most cherished memories are of my brother and I facing off in the dark, him on his bed and me on mine, reenacting light saber battles from our favorite movie of all time.
These days I get more mileage in the memory department of him sneaking out into the snow under the cover of darkness to nab those damn things. To this day I'm still amazed he didn't catch pneumonia!
Nope but there's nothing obstructing the power cord from being plugged in on the 3DS so it works just fine. It's not a dock but it's close to it and totally worth the trouble of unplugging the cord from time to time.
Merry Christmas to all! I still haven't opened my gifts yet. We're all waiting on my sister and her husband who will be arriving later tonight. I do have one Christmas present opened, though. I just got a 40" Samsung 6420 LED TV! Super sweet! Also, my mom likes crafts so she designed a Zelda hat with the Triforce logo. I'll take pictures of everything later and post them as soon as I am able.
