A big new monitor I can hook my laptop up to.

I'd get a Wii but I'll be too busy until I graduate to justify a whole new console.

I'm not really expecting anything other than a bit of money from my grandparents.

EDIT: my cousin's probably getting Twilight Princess (GC) and my uncle Live Free or Die Hard on Blu-ray from me though.

Stuff on my wish list:

-Sonic Rush Adventure
-Sonic & Mario at the Olympic Games
-Guitar Hero III
-Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
-Super Mario Galaxy
-Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
-Last but not least, a working printer with working ink cartridges (almost all the printers in my house are dead now, one way or another <_< )

There's not even the slightest chance I'll get them all, but that's my wish list.

One of my friends also mentioned he may hook me up with a first generation x-box, as well as bring the whole gang (all my close friends from where I used to live) over to my house for a part of Christmas break. That'll be a blast, assuming it doesn't fall through :)

I plan on asking for:

1) Guitar Hero 3 (The Wii version...aside from Stefan does anyone have the Wii GH?)
2) The Alphabet of Manliness by Maddox (I doubt I wind up with this book due to content...but hey, my parents bought me American Psycho without realizing what it was about)
3) Contra 4
4) A renewed subscription to The Onion

And will probably receive only GH3 and clothing! This is the way the world works.


I HOPE YOU DO

My wish list.
-Leman Russ Tank Squadren (WH40k related). I play IG and plan on using a tank heavy army for big games. Of course I plan on using two Baneblades.
-Grey Knight Space Marines. (see above). Gives my army some needed close combat skills.
-Contra 4
-Trauma Center: New Blood.

I don't expect to receive anything in particular. I'll make a list of probably money and various replacement items I need, maybe throwing a wii game on there.

In reality, though, Christmas gifts have lost their luster to me. It's not the same as it once was to receive gifts early in the morning.

Baneblades are standard fare now? Yeesh, just as well I quit years ago or my Nids would be getting beat even worse by my Space Marine playing friends/hated enemies. :[

What does IG stand for, btw?

What does IG stand for, btw?
IG stands for Imperial Guard. Baneblades became standard last October (complete with all plastic kit, which is the largest plastic kit ever made) when the Apopcalyse rules (for 3000+ games). The baneblade gets 2 lascannons, 3 twin-linked heavy bolters, a demolisher cannon, a co-axial autocannon (get to reroll scatter dice if you use the weapon it's attached to against the same target), and the baneblade cannon (str 9, Ap2, 72' 10 inch blast aka the frisbee), all for 500 points.

Don't quit the game yet, I think Nids got a 4.0 codex recently (a few years back at longest), an all plastic (awesome looking with all the fixings) Carnifex model got released this year along with the Chaos Codex (last September, a really good codex that makes playing as them a lot easier) and in January, Orks. This is the pefect time to get back into the game.

What kind of army composistion does your SM playing rival use? If its mass assault cannons, I can understand your frustration since many consider it a really cheap tactic due to the broken nature of assault cannons (mostly rending on a ranged weapon that strikes four times). Here's some ideas to help you win.
1. Build a "shooty fex". For anti-skimmer, you want enhanced senses with two devourers. For anti-tank, enhanced senses+ twin linked barbed strangler is your friend. One of the biggest weaknesses of Nids is that (unless the unit is a monster or has rending) they don't have much in the anti-tank department. Grey Knight armies also have this weakness.
2. For a close combat fex, take crushing claws, scything talons, tusks, glands of +1WS, toxic miasma, and a scythe tail. You'll be getting so many attacks that you're practically guaranteed to annilate anything it engages in close combat
3. Get a winged Hive Tyrant (order some Balrog wings sprues from Games Workshop). The extra 6' of movement will help you get into assaults much faster.
4. Also take a choice of warriors. A smart player will focus their attentions on your synapse creatures (if not your fastest creatures first).

lol magnum, I played like...10 years ago. X) Though actually I have somehow kept aware of some of the new advances, like the new Carnifex (which sounds FUCKING AWESOME), and sometimes I get a yearning to get back into it. But I truly, honestly do not have the time or money anymore (god, I'm saying this alot lately, even as I continue to post here fairly regularly). What's more the people I used to play with almost certainly no longer do (though I do know at least one guy now who actually works at GW...).

Cheers for that advice anyway, though, interesting to know what options the bugs have open to them these days.

Well, I asked for a laptop and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I found out that if my parents get a laptop, it is going in the living room and I'll get this computer or I will have to share the laptop with everyone else. So I just told them to forget about it. Also, SSBB apparently isn't comming out until February. So I don't know how my parents know what to get me, like they say they do. Some other things might be Super Mario Galaxy, Pokemon D/P (the one with Dialka or whatever), and maybe a few other things I can't remember.

  • all A's for my report card
  • a better internet connection (the one I have keeps breaking down)
  • Sonic Rush Adventure (need to fill in the Blaze plot-holes)
  • Possibly a Wii if I could get one. Don't have any next-gen consoles, so this is a good place to start
  • Brawl (if I get said Wii)
  • this I've been looking everywhere for this shirt, and I need it!

Not much else, really. My birthday is just two days after Christmas, so I expect double presents later on. ^O^

I don't really have that much I am asking for this Christmas, but I do have a few things.

1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Fullscreen version on DVD.

2. A Toshiba laptop. (I wanted this last year, but I never got it. I have to decide on a model I want though, since new models have come out since last year.

3. Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock for the Nintendo Wii.

Hopefully I'll get many other things that I'm thinking about asking for right now, because most of my relatives know that I want them.
