Poll: Did You Get a Video Game For Christmas?

December 27, 2012 -

As Charlie Brown might say, "Well, another Christmas has come and gone."

So, did you get a video game for Christmas?  That's what this week's poll is asking so roll up you sleeves and get to voting.  Tell us all about the game(s) you got or wanted in the comments section below or email SuperPACPodcast@gmail.com.

We should have a new podcast for you next week so we'll discuss the results of the poll and our Christmas hauls on episode 34 of Super Podcast Action Committee.

Re: Poll: Did You Get a Video Game For Christmas?

My wife picked up Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask for my 3DS, I got Scribblenauts Unlimited and Sonic Racing Transformed for the Wii U plus the Ratchet & Clank/Jak & Daxter PS3 HD collections for my kids. My youngest upgraded to the 3DS with a few games as well.  And finally I got my wife the Wonderbook Harry Potter for PS3.  Videogames tend to be a big thing with my whole family. :)

I got a G600 MMO gaming mouse and a P11 Headset for the PS3/PC. Technically, not games, but I'm not picky, either. X3

I remember a couple years ago a bunch of my friends and I all got the new Call of Duty when it came out in October or November and had fun playing together.  But one friend was getting it for Christmas so he couldn't play it with us.  By the time he ended up getting it we weren't playing it anymore.  

I the only games I ask for for Christmas are ones I don't want very bad, otherwise the above happens.

Did I get any games? Well, only the stuff I snagged for cheap during sales.

I got myself a Wii U, but the sides of the picture are cut off thanks to Wii U's overscan issues. Sigh.

Re: Poll: Did You Get a Video Game For Christmas?

Is it the WiiU or the TV? I had horrible overscan issues with my HTPC that turned out to be the TV. Some dumb setting was defaulted as on and once I turned it off, all was right in the world. I don't have a WiiU, so I cannot say for sure.

Re: Poll: Did You Get a Video Game For Christmas?

Technically it's the TV, but unlike every single other console, the Wii U doesn't account for overscan. So while my 360, PS3, Wii etc all work fine, the Wii U doesn't. This peep explains things better: http://techforums.nintendo.com/message/84784

Re: Poll: Did You Get a Video Game For Christmas?

I didn't get a video game for Christmas. However, I did get a Classic Controller Pro for my Wii. I also got an Amazon gift card from my boss with which I bought a Classic Controller to USB adapter for my computer. I also got an almost complete set of the Lego Heroica board game (missing only one out of the four sets). As a family, we also got the Lego Creationary game. (think pictionary with Lego blocks instead of pen and paper). I also bought the latest Humble Bundle too. So while no one gave me video games for Christmas, I have been given much gaming for Christmas.
