Hi, TAY. I hope everybody had a good holiday. My Christmas turned out to be pretty great, actually. I got to spend some quality time with my family, play an unhealthy amount of Dead Rising 3 and Super Mario 3D World and I got some pretty great gifts.

What gifts you ask? Well I'd be more than glad to oblige. I got pretty lucky this year, my wife went pretty crazy and got me an iPad Air and blue Smart Cover, a copy of Ni No Kuni (for the PS3 she obviously knew I bought her ahead of time, dammit), a limited edition Zelda: A Link Between Two Worlds strategy guide, and the biggest surprise of all: the First 4 Figures Exclusive Ryo Figure.

For those of you that have read my previous pieces, you might know that I kind of like Shenmue, a lot.


So all in all it was a pretty excellent Christmas. How about everybody else 0ut there? How was your holiday?
