Thank you, Secret Santa!

Vectorman 2! 😄

Sonic 3! 😄

Sonic 3D Blast! 😐

 

I kid, I kid- the internet may be less than enthusiastic, but I like 3D Blast just fine! That's a good lineup you got!

I am so happy that you like it!  It was a real pleasure being your Secret Santa! I hope you get some great deals in Steam!

Thank you, Secret Santa!

Wow, the Tac-2 is among my favorite controllers of all time for any system!  And I really love Qix!  What great stuff. :)

Received my Secret Santa package in the mail today. Thanks Santa! I'll wait until it gets a little closer to Christmas to open it.

 

Fun Fact - I had the same secret Santa before and still have some art he created on display at my desk :)

Well, since the great opening has begun ( and we're getting to the icky part of the season at work)...20201216_144831.thumb.jpg.3f87a7a4db8d4463db9c07926f725fc1.jpg20201216_145146.thumb.jpg.9fc2251180db8d70d4e28634a74a0502.jpg

 

I am utterly blown away- if I'd opened the big box sooner, I could've done an advent countdown! Actually, since my niece is coming tomorrow, I'll have her help me catch up & do just that! So- snacks and box one!

I'm excited to try the apples- we do jam-making from time to time, but we've never dried fruit before! And everyone loves candy 😁

EEEEE! Christmas homebrew! I was literally just thinking the other day I should look into more O2 games... I'll have to get it set up when we finish the snickerdoodles! (It's a baking day today!)

 

Thank you SO much Captain! I look forward to lots more showing off! 😆

(Actually don't let me or Arnold pressure you.  I like this advent thing... You do it your way!)

 

Glad you're enjoying this as much as I am.

I work two retail jobs, so the last 2 weeks before Christmas get ROUGH. Now I have something to look forward to every day!

 

And something I noticed when I set up to play Mean Santa... the spices from the apples have spread into the other gifts, so everything smells AMAZING! (Also I'm not very good at Mean Santa- at least not yet!)

Catch up day!20201217_110630.thumb.jpg.97610e2d696399dc08278b3964bdcb65.jpg

 

My niece came by early, so we did a pre-work gift opening! First one:20201217_110648.thumb.jpg.52a093c76896cb6f7b2dc5eace91e0d7.jpg20201217_110806.thumb.jpg.e3f0f679fc208cc50950431d32576f98.jpg20201217_110733.thumb.jpg.ad5c3e000f7e775a0854446626fcdc96.jpg20201217_110812.thumb.jpg.eb6ffa64ae0caa2b4e8349264e5bbfc5.jpg

 

A Queen music box! I actually had to look it up on YouTube to figure out the song, becuase Sev (my niece) didn't want to give it up & doesn't have good speed control 😄 (it's Bohemian Rhapsody of course!) Despite being my favorite band, I don't have a lot of Queen stuff outside of albums, so this is awesome!

 

 

While Sev was distracted by the box, I opened the next gift:

20201217_110932.thumb.jpg.b30e23c9c3578616127d2a6ed1b05807.jpg

 

A new 2600 cart! Sev wanted to try it immediately, but I still have the Odyssey 2 out for Mean Santa, so maybe after work. I went to open the last box, but Sev decided she wanted to open it & grabbed it from me!

This one was a box of cute cat buttons! I'm gonna have to figure out what all to attach these to!! 😄

 

Fast-forward's over, tune in tomorrow for the 5th day of Christmas & a further display of CaptainBreakout's generosity!😊

I suppose the music box doesn't quite cover the entire 6 minutes of the song? :-D

 

Edit: Haha, somebody DIY:ed their own music box!

Well.......hmmmmMMMmmmm......I gave into the constant pestering of my son and wife to open my SS presents.....so........I caved.

^ that turned into - this below!

secretsanta.thumb.jpg.9b01547b1277cb50fe73b293e956da72.jpg

 

I am completely blown away how well Santa did. His generosity amazed me! Every present seemed to be picked out especially for me!

Santa picked out amazing games! (somehow not doubling up on any of them!)

The Defender arcade will now grace our Christmas tree, front and center for years to come.

The activision patch is  fantastic! I do not own it but have been admiring it. It is one of the coolest looking Activision patches.

The licorice was already enjoyed by my son and myself over a night of gaming! The GB clock will proudly sit in my gameroom(until my son steals it, he has his eye on it)

The Adventure Duckons are pure genius!   My wife wants them on the tree, after that, down to the game room!!!

 

I am very very touched! This package was way beyond anything I expected! Thank you, I am blown away!!!

Now for the big question......who are you Santa????

I would hope the “shipping” address on the box you received would look familiar. 🤣🤣

Wow, what great stuff!!!  Pac-Man 5200 is honestly my favorite version of Pac-Man (ok maybe second to Crazy Otto), just love it!  And River Raid 5200 is absolutely my favorite version of one of the best games of all time, under-heralded!  Great great stuff!! 👍
