...is like a mile long. This Christmas, I am getting my hands on games like never before. I don't really get too many presents, other than from the parents (my wife doesn't really do presents for me, she just lets me buy a bunch of silly stuff). So, the presents that I am giving myself this Christmas include
The New Gamma World Game
Ooooo!! I can not wait to get this in the mail. Sorry to all the FLGS's, but I don't have one. I live in Japan, so I shop Amazon. I really look forward to getting this box in the mail. From all the great things I have heard about the setting, it is going to be a blast to play.
Rogue Trader Core Rule Book and the GM Kit
Yea! This one has been a long time coming. Like some of you know. I am fairly slow to jump on a given bandwagon. I usually am not the first person to jump on a fad when it strikes, but I am also likely to keep going with it for far longer than everyone else does. I have always loved the Warhammer 40k Universe, so this one seemed like a given. I had my pick of the three systems: Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader, and Deathwatch. This one came out on top.
I am a big video gamer, almost more so than a Pen & Paper gamer these days. Not really having the free time to get a big group together to play has meant me moving my hobby to the PS3 on Saturday mornings and at night when my wife and kid are sleeping. So, this Christmas, I am picking up a bloody plethora of PS3 games, including Demon's Souls, the game I mentioned in a previous post. I think I also picked up Ninja Gaiden: Sigma - which is a game I have been wanting to play for a LONG time now. I am pretty behind on games, so I am just getting Assassin's Creed 2 now. I can't wait to give that a try as well.
I am heading over to the Americas over winter vacation and going on a little trip up to Vancouver, BC. Really looking forward to this trip, because, for one thing, there are quite a few game stores in Vancouver. There is one a couple miles away from the hotel where I am staying, so I am planning to actually get my hands on some other stuff and see about what I want to pick up then. I really want to get a better look at some of the D&D essentials box sets, as well as the Ravenloft Board Game. I had originally thought about getting the Ravenloft board game from the beginning, but since it weighs like 8 pounds, I am not entirely sure that I can get it into my luggage and back to Japan on the plane.
What is on your X'mas List?
