    Podcast #69 my body is ready. On Christmas day about ten years ago, I received the greatest gaming consoles ever made. The SEGA DREAMCAST! And a copy of Ready To Rumble Boxing. My family and I spent the entire evening playing that game.

    I'm so glad Ryan's wish from podcast 48 could at least be achieved in title form. :p QoTW - I think Turok 2. I begged and pleaded and cried for my mom to buy this game for me, but she refused saying I was too young, it was too violent, all that mom crap. I threw multiple tantrums (note - I was 12 when it came out) until she flat out told me I would NEVER get it. Imagine my surprise when Christmas 1998 rolled around and I got it! I was the happiest little boy around and spent many, many hours using the Cerebral Bore on enemies. So fun.

    My favorite gaming gift memory is a recent one. I've been trying to get money to buy a PS Vita since a couple of month, but I'm unemployed so it was hard as hell... Getting a job in my country is hard when the only two things I'm good at are playing videogames and making music. I had to sell a lot of my PS3 games to get some money, but even though I sold a couple, I still was far away from the amount of money that I needed. Last weekend I went to a friend's house to eat some pizza and play videogames with a group of good friends of mine. Suddenly, when we were eating some ice-cream, one of my friends arrived with a cake (my birthday was a few weeks ago) and we ended up celebrating my birthday even though I didn't even knew that they were planning that. At the end of the night, they all gathered some money and gave it to me, telling me that now I could buy myself a PS Vita as a birthday/chritsmas present. And so here I am, with a beautiful PS Vita in my hands, which I consider a Christmas gift from my good friends, who knew that I couldn't pay for that. Chirstmas came early this year for me. Now, I'll have to gather some money to buy Persona 4 or some other game...

    That would have to be the year that my dad bought me and my brother a PlayStation 2, "Christmas Story" style. So we're all done opening gifts and about to eat breakfast, right? And my dad walks into our game room and sees some gifts on our table. He asks our mom if we had forgotten to take these up to our grandma's house the previous night (our family always goes up to our grandma's house every Christmas Eve for a big family get-together). My mom, all confused because she doesn't know anything about it, says that we didn't, and my dad replies, "Hmm, interesting, because there are 3 gifts over here that are wrapped, but we're all done." As our curiosity grows, my brother and I walk over to see what he is talking about, and find a big ol' box wrapped up. We go to unwrap it and find a PlayStation 2 on our table, along with THPS4, Grand Turismo 3, and Simpson's Road Rage. Meanwhile in the background, I hear my dad quote, "I had one when I was 8 years old..." to my mom, just to complete the reference. It was hilarious and easily my best gaming gift memory.

    I asked my mom for Dragon Warrior 2 for Christmas, and she got me Double Dragon 2. While Double Dragon 2 wasn't a bad game, I didn't really want it, and since Dragon Warrior 2 was very hard to find, I swapped it for Mega Man 3.
