Santa sucked for me also.  1 present. No dvd's. That is why I buy stuff for myself all year.  Works better that way.

Santa was good for me.  small selection of dvds, and $50 for joysticks and buttons(apparently santa doesn't know how to use the internet, so I have to do it myself.)  two dual strikes are on there way from ebay auctions too.

Didn't get my lightgun as I thought I would.  Just means I'll have to buy it myself.  ;D

A few books I was looking at, a bunch of DVDs (used, but in good condition, from bro & sis, mostly anime), and clothes from parents (of course :-\ ).

Enough money from other relatives to let me fill in the lightgun and other stuff, and still save some for later.

One present I didn't know I was getting: "Mu", a card game (from germany), from some friends I thought we decided not to exchange presents.  Of course, I already play Mu with them, and their deck is getting a little old (not the same as a normal 52 card deck) so . . . maybe they're giving themselves the gift too. ;)

Overall a nice christmas

hehe.. i got the same.. $50 for joysticks and buttons.. however.. i e-mailed the URL to santa at regular intervals at least 4 times throughout the holiday..  I guess he found it.. because the part #'s I specified were under the tree.. hehehehe

also got a 19.2v cordless drill... need something to bang out those holes for the buttons ;)

Santa (aka. The Wife) was very good to me.
I got an ACT Labs Light gun, which works awesome with Area51 except for when you have to reload!!! - hope a right click cheat will be incorporated soon as in the PC version of the game.
I also got one of those JAKKS Pacific retro Atari 2600 Joysticks with 10 games built in.
To top that off I got the COMPLETE MONTY PYTHONS FLYING CIRCUS on 14 DVDs & a new DVD player for our bedroom.

Didn't get the happ trackball, 27" monitor, ipac or optipac however - Wife says that I'd be too tempted to build the full size cabinet that she has been asking me to put off untill we get a bigger house.
She's having a hard time manuvering around all of the computers, parts, & Mame control pannels that are lingering around our home office.

Guess I really should't complain... ;)
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
