    I wanted to make sure I'm not forgetting anything this for this holiday season. I tried writing in "newb" so my parents can understand. Am I forgetting anything? Please don't spam this with unecessary things, like liquid nitrogen for extreme overclocking, despite that being desired.

    If you get all that, you're spoiled.

    Back in my day, I got a pack of underwear, and liked it!

    I'm an atheist, so I guess he's just getting my presents. :'(

    (even so, he should skip all that and go ahead and ask for the Porsche.)

    Oh, don't worry. I'm never going to get all of this. It's a LIST. My parents decide "No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no"
    It's just things for them to look the net/stores for.
    But the fact that half my list isn't coming out SUCKS!
    And ATM, i'm Wii > PS3. Because my parents are more likely to pay $250 on me, than $600.
    And this is more-or-less because my sister got a quince and $1500 in gifts. Since I'm a guy i don't get a huge-ass party and 1.5k
    So hopefully i get presents (HOPEFULLY)

    And after last year, its ok with me to wait 3 months for a christmas present. I don't remember what it was last year that took 3 months after christmas to get, but i remember it.

    But is there anything else I might want? Based off: I like the genres of all the games i mentioned, i got a pretty 1337 computer ATM, but after Vista It'll be sht, and I have a SuperCard for my DS / GBA purposes [​IMG]

    everyone is saying red steel sucks so take that off your list.

    dont get the new nvidia card. wait until vista comes out, get a dual core processor, and a new vid card then.

    He's too young to appreciate fine things apparently mthrnite since everything on that list are just toys (not saying a porsche is not, but it's actually a toy worth the $$)....after seeing this post one obvious word of "spoiled" comes to mind but hey...we're not his parents so if that's their way of raising a child, so be it. And on your ranting about your sister getting more than you, just trust me on this one, someday you'll realize Christmas is just another day (unless you're Christian, but from the sound of it you just think Christmas = presents) and that your parents raising you and feeding you is the most
    important gift of all and expecting them to buy you video games just makes you look like an ungrateful brat from everyone else looking in.

    P.S. Liquid Nitrogen cooling? [​IMG] Phase changing is what you're looking for and that's nothing like liquid nitrogen, do some research before you do something you regret like spraying your cpu with liquid nitrogen.

    I remember when I used to be like this. Now it's more fun for me to give presents and buy my own stuff.


    But if you still like receiving, liquid nitrogen for extreme overclocking is a must.

    Red Steel does suck.

    You're spoiled as hell getting any of that!
    Maybe I'm just jealous, so scratch that.

    hmmm... and a 8 track of Funkadelc's greatest hits...
    o wait, I got that...
    make it Mandrill's first album...

    Um, no it's not a joke. I expect maybe 1, two things tops for christmas
    (I've bought maybe a total of 5 things this year)
    And: I have a very 1337 computer, its just the 8800GTX PWNS my 7900GT with like, double the Graphics processing power. I have a X2, and i don't want a Core 2 Duo. (H8 Intel, and Microsoft)

    But i'll only want liquid nitrogen / phase change when i'm too lazy to buy new components and would rather spend twice the money on overclocking.x) By then i'll have a job [​IMG]

    (Threadstarter: stop kidding yourself; whether you're being serious or not that list is a joke from most people's pov. A $250 console? Get real.)

    [​IMG] fantastic imagery

    Bionic fingers aren't that great by the way. I can type really fast, but it hurts when I pick my nose.

    @imgod: I hope you're spending just as much time thinking about what to buy/make your parents.

    This message reminds me of the Otaku producer guy in Phoneix Wright or the Shroom controlled hammer bros in Mario Luigi in time. This isn't a personal attack but I just want all the internet folks out there know that this is not as cool as you may think.
