Are you getting some good treats this Christmas?

Christmas came and went, a fat goose hooting around and hooting with a muffled spout, and people have put so many coins in the old man’s hat that he gets a mild concussion every time he walks the dog. So not to be rude, but did you get anything good? Rare new hardware? Handy sock stoppers? A good game in sales? Hell, I’m just using this as a way to start a chat: how was your Winterval in general? Do something good? Eat something good?

I do not think I have received a gaming gift since a less functional USB cup warmer 15 years ago, but I received a gift that I think will enhance my gaming: a rosary with a folding knife inside the crucifix. The powerful energy of it could no doubt leave me to scale Devil Dagger’s leaderboard. Or accidentally stinging me around the neck, chest and stomach. Either way, a great gift received with joy.

I also spoiled myself with Fallout 4 in the Steam sale. I think Bethesda’s open-world RPGs are boring, but this winter already feels endless, and somehow it feels like something I want right now? Just revel, walk around a big room and do all the things even though things are not remarkable? I do not know. It seems like it would kill time. It’s a real Wintervale vibe.

What about you, gang? Get some great games / books / accessories / merch / stuff, from yourself or others? Honestly, I’m glad people stopped trying to give me toys for Christmas. I mostly do not like gifts in general, but especially plastic tat, which I did not need. The USB-powered desktop fan was not a hit either. Am I halting? Maybe I’m complaining. But please, dear reader, tell me something about your Crimbo + New Year.
