Dec 26th, 2013


With Christmas behind us and plenty of deals to be had at retailers, we thought we would give our readers a chance to share what they got during the holidays, share Nintendo Network IDs to meet new friends, and have a great gaming time.

As for myself, I got Shin Megami Tensei IV for my Nintendo 3DS and pre-ordered Bravely Default, as well as a larger capacity card for my PS Vita (why are these still so expensive, Sony failure). I didn’t pick up any new Wii U titles, but I have my eye on Super Mario 3D World soon!

So share with us what you got and maybe you’ll meet some new gaming friends!

  • lonewolf88

    a epic violin and 50 dollar eshop card.

    • Josiah Parsons

      What kind of violin (from someone who’s been playing for 12 years)? I got Super Mario 3D World and a cajon/djembe hybrid drum.

      • lonewolf88

        the violin is custom from a violin store where i live.

        • Josiah Parsons


  • Ocio Aguilera

    My presents:

    A link between worlds
    Wii U (Hardware)
    Super Mario 3D World
    Nintendo Land
    Batman Arkham City
    Mass Effect 3

    How? im 40 years old actually, i pay for my own games and i love Nintendo πŸ˜‰

    • RyuNoHadouken

      just go straight for Survival mode on ZombiU…the experience is very rewarding…best survival horror game ever made, and ive played em all!!!!


        I just stoped playing it because scares me jaja

      • Adrian

        Why? Even knowing everything about that game i still die once or twice in a playthrough (given i always kill all zombies i have access to). Why would you start in survival mode as a noob?

        • BIG Franky

          yeah that is some of the worst advice I’ve heard… LOL…

          • RyuNoHadouken


        • RyuNoHadouken

          it sharpens your skills a lot faster

          • Adrian

            It’s the same game requiring the same skill :p. Just survival mode makes your death end the game, which is old school and interesting, but stupid. Playing 10 hours and then making a small eff up and losing all 10 hours of progress is not fun.

          • RyuNoHadouken

            makes you think twice about “running and gunning” through a game…it adds to the level of tension

    • Fred

      I didn’t get many game presents because I’m 28 and buy my own Nintendo games. The beauty of that is I’ve been playing Mario 3D World, Wind Waker, and A Link Between Worlds for awhile now.

      I saw Best Buy was having a sale yesterday and bought Wonderful 101 for $29.99!!

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        Those are exactely the games that I got for Christmas πŸ˜‰

        • The_Last_Metroid

          same here

        • Gameonfool

          A game feels more magical getting it for Christmas

          • Tim van Broekhoven

            Oh that is so true. It doesn’t feel as awesome when buying it yourself πŸ™‚

      • joey t

        i am also 28, got nothing for christmas but did buy those exact games when i wanted them. inluding the zelda 3ds. woo merry christmas to us πŸ™‚

        • YogiGRB

          same here, only i’m 34. and yes woehoo Merry chrismas to us all

        • Fred

          That’s a nice system. I almost bought that several times, but it was hard to justify since I already have a 3DS and a 3DS XL, but I’m very jealous of you right now.

          • joey t

            I have had a 3ds since launch and I don’t regret it one bit. but already having both I could see how it’d be hard to justify. But if you are still after one ozgameshop still stock the EU Pal version of them.

          • Fred

            I have 3 3DS regrets.
            1-Waiting to buy in (I missed Ambassador by a few months cause I was in college and wasn’t sure if I could afford one)
            2-Not getting the Fire Emblem 3DS
            3-Getting an XL last year (I wish I would have waited till this year and gotten the gold Tri-Force one

    • Justagamer

      What 40 you don’t look it but im right behind ya on that number

    • Laud

      I got a card that said “Merry Christmas!”

      And that was it..

      • MysticDude97

        If the Christmas card had no money, and wasn’t even custom-made, the sender didn’t bother to try.

      • Ocio Aguilera

        :/ Next year maybe?

        • Laud

          You and everyone here should totally pitch in and get me something for my birthday on the 10th of January. Do it.

          It’ll go down in history.

    • David John Gifford

      Trade in mass effect such ea rubbish

      • Destructonator101

        Mass Effect 3 is an awesome game, and its a bit gutsy to bag it. Even though it’s from EA, the worlds crappiest game developer and publisher, it is a brilliant game. All three games are awesome and even though its from EA, its probably their only good game.

        But when I say its good, I mean awesome. If you play all the games, or even me3 alone, you may actually love the game. I certainly do. Give it a shot, because it may be better than anything you could expect from EA. But then EA only published it, BioWare developed it.

        • Graeme Lynch

          Enough of the “everyone hates EA” mantra. We get it. They still publish good, solid games that millions of people enjoy.

          • Veries Seals

            I have to agree with that Graeme. EA has 3 great games on the Wii U. Need for speed Most Wanted U is also excellent!

          • Graeme Lynch

            Yey someone on here agrees with me! :p

      • Graeme Lynch

        Mass Effect series is simply awesome. The fact that you would poo poo a game based on it’s publisher is ridiculous.

    • Seth S. Scott

      ZombiU is SO good (and underrated)

  • D3Vortex

    3DS XL Zelda: A link between worlds bundle & SMB 2 to go along with my Wii U collection. Nintendo network Id D3Vortex

  • MiKangaroo

    Sadly, I got a Wii U…

    • Eduardo

      why “sadly”?

      • Kyle Zawacki

        Maybe he wanted something else.

        • Eduardo

          he should be happy/thankful that he got a gift. there are kids who dont get anything at all.

    • Kyle Zawacki

      I understand your pain.

    • Patrick Starman

      Here, let me play you a sad song on the world’s smallest violin.

    • MysticDude97

      Don’t be such a Downvote Magnet.

  • Jan

    An entire battery of horrible socks!

  • Flawless Victory

    I ended up getting socks, shirts, and boxers for Christmas. o.o

    • Jan

      I know that feel!

    • MysticDude97

      Me as well. We need hugs.

    • lonewolf88

      hey in my stocking i got AXE body wash kit πŸ˜›

    • Rick van der Linde

      Honestly, I’d rather get that stuff because I hate spending money on that stuff and rather buy games instead

  • therealruben1

    Mario 3D World and Ocarina of Time 3D

  • Cena’s Smirk

    I bought my boy Super Mario 3d world, a 3ds with Sonic lost world, New Mario 2, phantom hourglass and classic sonic. the presents had his name on them, but his dad really wanted them too or maybe more. it’s great having a 5 year old lol.

    • ScrewAttack

      Best bit is his dad can play 3D world all the way through with him! Wish I could get any of my damn family to play video games with me πŸ™ (Well my bro used to, but he lives elsewhere these days. Credit to my sister who does now and then, even if she sucks ;p)

      • jreed3842

        Agreed! My family rarely plays games with me. I got them to play 3D World with me for a couple of levels, but then they got mad because they didn’t understand the controls right away (It even took me awhile to get it) and so they got frustrated and quit. So… I’ve been playing the rest of the game by myself. Lol.
        That’s why I wish Nintendo would do more with online play. I have A LOT of friends who got this game and love it just as much as I do… but we’re all too far away to play together.

        • Cena’s Smirk

          wow, I am a great dad lol. we already played threw Mario and Luigi U, super Mario world (VC snes on wii u), Nintendo land and his favorite Wind Waker HD. we finally beat it last weekend after he deleted my quest file twice.

          p.s. I also got him skates. he needs to learn to skate if he’s going to make the NHL.

        • ScrewAttack

          Definitely, exact same thinking here! A sadly missed opportunity.

  • TheGamerGeek128

  • Entropyguy

    • Josiah Parsons

      See’s! I currently live in Ohio, but I used to live in southern California, and dang I miss the stuff! The mini lollies were my favorite.

      • Entropyguy

        My favorite has always been the Scotchmallows, but their truffles are pretty amazing too. I always thought it was superior to Godiva.

  • Fred

    I got Super Mario 64 DS, Crazy Coaster Deluxe and NES Remix. The only game I wanted and didn’t get is Wonderful 101 (Grandma and Grampa are coming soon with gifts hopefully they have it.

  • Mitch Hall

    A lot, actually.

    Assassin’s Creed 4 and Batman Arkham Origins for PC, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for 3DS, a new coat, new wallet, a few weird joke gifts, and a $300 Visa Gift Card that I think I’m going to spend on a PS4. I’m quite happy with my haul.

  • Madmagican

    I got lots of candy and clothes but in a solemn moment I realized I got nothing in regards to gaming or money… it seems my family doesn’t know me well enough

    but I picked up L4D2 for free from Steam last night πŸ˜‰

    • readypembroke

      For free?? from a Steam friend? One of my Steam friends gave me a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gift but I want to trade it for a $20 eShop code. My PC can’t play pretty much squat.

      • Goob1246

        He most likely got it from the Steam Holiday special thing, where you could get L4D2 on Steam on Christmas day for free.

        • readypembroke

          I bought L4D 2 at retail and let one of my friends in my class borrow my Frying Pan from buying L4D 2 and he hasn’t have it back to me. But he did craft me a AWPer Hand and got me Tux when they had that Linux thing going on.

  • readypembroke

    I sold my Wii (yes I did do a Wii transfer for the second time, big pain and I did get Super Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros 64 Club Nintendo rewards off) for $45 and used the money towards Super Mario 3D World.

  • Nick

    I got the Wii U deluxe bundle with NSMBU + NSL
    Pikmin 3
    TLoZ Wind Waker HD
    Super Mario 3D World

    I finally decided to get a Wii U. But man, I was hesitant to get one…

    Wonderful 101, Zombie U didn’t interest me at all. Bayonetta 2 just isn’t my thing. and in terms of third party games, that’s what my PS3 is for.

    I am looking forward to pretty much all of Nintendo’s first party games.

    That Zelda U better be the best thing ever…

    • Jonathan George Anaya

      I was in your same boat! I’m afraid that Nintendo alone can’t keep the WiiU afloat… But, I figured “Oh well, for Smash and Zelda”.
      Then the universe intervened. I went to Target and they were sold out. They haven’t replenished their stock since Black Friday. Ouchies

    Super Mario 3D World has been great so far, my sister and I played it for a while and beat the first two worlds and now halfway through the third, and Mass Effect Trilogy has been great too, such an awesome series to play.

    • Goob1246

      If you care about frame rate issues and cannot stand playing a game with 20-30 FPS, then don’t get the Wii U version. But if you want off-tv play, second screen gameplay, and don’t care for better graphics and a stable 30 FPS, then feel free to get the Wii U version (although the frame rate does get better outside of Havana, and the frame rate issues never made the game unplayable for me).

      • BIG Franky

        yeah… much of that nonsense just never makes a difference to me…. my naked eye cant detect much difference graphically between the PS4 version and the Wii U version of AC4…. and most people tend to agree with that assessment (at least according to the reviews). and that is to be expected in the first round of next-gen games avail… as developers are using the same models for many of thee games…. where the PS4 will really shine is down the road, which is what I am excited for. but yeah, I’ve played both versions of AC4 and the difference is very minimal…. mostly in shading and water textures… but its VERY minimal.

  • Decker Shado

    Well, I bought my girlfriend and her twin sister Mario & Sonic at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, Sonic Lost World.. and they also got Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and 2 relatively nice $800 AMD APU rigs to replace their old dinosaurs from ages past.

    It was one hell of a Nintendo Christmas. πŸ™‚

    When I was seven years old, back in 1987, Santa brought us an NES. It was one of the best Christmas gifts I ever received. This year my daughter is seven years old, and it was amazing to be able to bring the same fun and joy into her life. Thanks Nintendo.

    I got Splinter Cell Blacklist and cash. Blacklist didn’t interest me enough to get a place on my shelf, so I ran through it in about 2 days then traded it earlier today at my local Best Buy. After which, I picked up Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101. Still got cash left so I’m headed to gamestop later to look for some more Wii U games or a couple Steam cards.

    Got my parents to buy my little bro a 3ds xl at toys r us for $170 (they missed the extremely good target deal) and then I got him pokemon x (I have pokemon y). I think he already clocked in 1 day in the game since Christmas (3 days). When he’s older, he better get me good presents since my parents only wanted to get him board games and clothes.

  • Louis

    Got Mario 3D World, Wii Fit U and Wii U Party this Christmas

  • Lewis Te Whaiti

    I bought a Wii U system, it came bundled with Nintendoland and Just Dance 2014, I also bought Zombie U, Assassins Creed 3 and COD BO2 (which has a thriving community here it seems) I showed it to my daughter who fell in love with it, She has shown it to her cousins who also love it, and, quite often squabble over who will use the game pad, oh and I also have 4 Wii controllers and nunchucks. I have noticed the the game most enjoyed by these Teenagers (yes teenagers!), is Nintendoland. We still have a PS3 and gaming computers (which is my preference) but I’m astonished to see how much these kids love that game, I quite often hear them employing tactics on how to defeat enemies in Metroid Battle, and I can hear them screaming in Luigi’s ghost mansion. Although I’m a PC gamer at heart, I have to admit Nintendo knows what makes great multi player family games. Big ups to Ninty for that.

  • jrb363

    I got:
    1. Super Mario 3D World

    It was an all Nintendo Christmas for us! πŸ™‚

  • RichM

    I’m 36 and have boys that are 10 and 8. We’ve had a Wii for a few years and so I got them *cough* myself *cough* a Wii U for Christmas. We just have the deluxe edition that came with the Mario and Luigi games. Once the eShop came back up, we downloaded the demo of Tank Tank Tank and eventually bought the Monster Levels for $8. It’s a simple game that we all can play and then put away. I bought another nunchuck so we could have three. I also bought them Super Smash Brothers Brawl which seems to be their favorite game. They’re looking forward to the new one and keep looking up videos. I really want Nintendo Land and maybe Party U.
