    Default So, what did you spend your Christmas loot on?

    What did everyone spend their money/gift cards on, if anything yet?

    Me, I didn't get much I asked for, so I went on a mini spree yesterday. I bought the following:

    Scarface box set DVD (finally! this thing is fucking sweet, best box set I've ever seen)
    Xbox Project Gotham Racing 2
    Xbox Midway Arcade Treasures
    Xbox GTA Double Pack
    Blue xbox controller S
    PC Battlefield 1942 Deluxe edition.

    Thinking about using the rest towards getting a new videocard. Maybe a Radeon 9600XT.

    I haven't spend all the booty yet, but I did pick up Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Activision Anthology yesterday. Now I need to spend the rest on either anime or manga... haven't decided which...

    I didn't get any Christmas loot, so I didn't buy anything.

    I'm hemming and hawing between getting a Gamecube or a 9600xt.

    On one hand, my aiw7500 is getting long in the tooth.
    On the other hand, my newest console is a Dreamcast, and I want to get some quality modern gaming on. Gamecube+GBP vs 9600.

    Not enough coin and too much shtuffs to want ;P

    I've got a $10 BB gift card, and $100 cash. I need to either trade my copy of Harvest Moon fo Fire Emblem, or buy a copy. I'm leaning to trading (If I find someone), but I don't know what to do with the rest. Suggestions?

    I was thinking of puting the money towards building a new PC, so I can run my own server.

    Also LOTR: Two Towers 4 disk set and some more tools.

    $325, and so far, I've spent none of it. So many choices, ya know?

    BTW, that $325 doesn't include gift cards. Heh...

    Spent my $100 giftcard on Fatal Frame for Xbox, an Eye Toy and an N-Gage Sleeve.

    My other gift card will be going towards my new electric toothbrush!

    I didn't get any money or gift certificates so I am going to have to buy the things myself... not really into buying more games at the moment... I want to beat the games I got first...

    The only money we got was for the intention of buying something for the family. Otherwise I would get this.

    gift cards, loot? Man, I never get that stuff. Some useful things, along with crap I never really wanted or can use! (Sorry about that last bit, but it's true - just a fact of life).
