    I know I'll be getting a couple of ST: TNG boxed sets, and I'm pretty sure I'll be getting Metroid Prime and Mortal Kombat.

    All I know for sure, and all I care about, is that I am getting Ghost Recon. It kills me to see so many forum members playing it every night and not being able to join them!!

    I already got Splinter Cell which I'm very excited about, but I don't know about the rest. I did make out a list to Santa though...

    I already bought most of the big releases for myself so there isn't much left for me tomorrow.[​IMG]
    We're still having a good time though. My fiance got me Castlevania:HOD, which is pretty sweet, and I got her Resident Evil 0, which we're having fun with.
    She begged and begged for some items related to Clank from Ratchet and Clank, but sadly, they don't really make anything. For about $15 though, I got some materials and made a pretty impressive life sized Clank doll. I scored huge amounts of points with that so maybe I'll get Crimson Sea down the line if I'm lucky.

    I didn't ask for any games this year. I've already got enough to last me for awhile [​IMG]
    My nephew's going to have a good one, though. He's getting an Xbox from his mom and my mom, and a good start on games from everyone else. I got him an extra controller and the dvd remote, plus Max Payne, and I think he's getting Mortal Kombat, Halo, Mech Assault, Robotech, and maybe one or two more from the rest of the family.

    Well,
    I got for Leslie the Activision Anthology, but we are gonna bring it back & get LOTR: The Two Towers for Xbox instead.
    Also got the Xbox version of 007: Nightfire, as well as
    Godzilla (bloody good fun!) & a Wavebird for my Gamecube!
    My only DVD (so far) is the BTTF set.
    Now if someone can give me a gift of more time...
    (or the winning Powerball number) [​IMG]
    Either would work just fine!

    So far I got:

    - 27" Sony FD Trinitron WEGA Flat Screen!
    - Metroid Prime (GCN)
    - Ratchet & Clank (PS2)
    - Best Buy Gift Cards
    - S-Video Cables (for GC...getting componenet when I get my new receiver)
    - Clothes
    - Money

    I still have to go to my grandma's where the whole family gets together. I'll probably just get money over there, although the possible Wavebird isn't out of the question.

    Nothing much for me, as I purchased most of the titles I want(that or I want to rent them first to make sure I really wanted them). Got Metroid Prime, a really nice dart board, some clothes, and a good amount of money. I'll probably pick up Jedi Outcast for the cube, and possibly Rygar for the PS2 and a few movies here and there. I again thought about getting an xbox but have once again decided to hold off for the time being. The rest of my day will be spent playing Metroid(although I'm completely stuck i the Cozo Ruins at this point) and trying to finish up my rental of Dead To Rights. Perhaps I'll watch a movie on the DVD player I bought for my parents(I figured it was about time that they get one) [​IMG]

    No new games for me (got them at at launch or near launch), so instead I got a Pioneer DV-45a for the home theater and some SACD's.
