I don't know yet. I usually wait until I'm in the mood to open everything up so I can appreciate them more, although a couple Christmases ago this meant holding out 'till mid February. Hopefully my friends and family won't phone up before then asking what I thought of the gifts as I'd then have to make a mad dash for the Christmas tree (if it's still up) and surprise myself prematurely.

Oh, that's not all quite true actually. I opened a tub of Haribo jellies last night after I ran out of cookies in the pantry.

I got a few gift cards, one of them an american express gift card with $50 on it, two amazon cards, one with $100, the other with $25. I also got $30 in cash. My step brother also got me Call of Dicks: Black Cocks too. I'm probably going to use the AE card to buy some games off steam. There's also some stuff I wanted to get off Amazon too.

Beer... Lots of beer. My sister smuggled brews from The Bruery to Missouri. They make the liquids of the gods.

Also, a Lao Che t-shirt and a Pogues t-shirt.

But mostly just beer.

The wallet was a "don't feel bad, here's something for you type of gift" from my nephew

My sister got an iphone
My dad got a new laptop
Mom got a 32' LED tv.
My nephew got a Xbox/kinect bundle pack

Damn, did you not show any interest in getting gifts beforehand, or are you not liked and this is their way of showing you?

Do you guys think it'll be able to run doom?

I'd predict it will chug during pre-rendered cut scenes and I wouldn't suggest using the CD music.

That they are! Or at least, I know that the first one rocked ass, but I don't know about the second one (wanted to buy the second one, but it was sold already, so I bought the third one instead), but since it's Wario Land, it'd most likely kick ass aswell!

It can, but you'll need to combine a GTX 470 or better with it. You'll benchmark your system by just playing it.
