Merry Christmas from Nintendo Life

Posted by Adam Russell

A festive treat for our loyal readers, in which a young boy gets a Wii from Santa

Picture the scene: it’s Christmas morning and you’ve sat through the socks and questionable knitwear from your granny and mastered the “oh thanks, that’s great” response. It’s been worth it though, because next up is the family gift…

It takes a couple of seconds for the enormity of the gift to sink in, but when it does the reaction is nothing short of epic. Let’s hope he doesn’t get a DSi this year!

Wishing a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our readers from everyone at Nintendo Life.

Yes. It's a "family" gift. Because the "family" will be using it.

I yelled like that when I got my wii, of course hearing "and the first winner of a Nintendo Wii is:" before your name can rise the excitement about it :P.

Cool video LOL, Thanks NL, and Merry Christmas to you all!

My constant thought when writing this was: "What if Link did this every time he got a new item?"

Merry Christmas everyone!

Only matched by the N64 Kids, and I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

Normally, I would say this is overreacting, but the family is probably poor, so all that was worth it. Merry Christmas to all.

That picture sold the story.

Merry Christmas guys!
I'm glad I found N-Life when I began to get into DSiWare: the best forums, great people and the funniest staff around!

(I can't wait for my shot at another job opening here!)

Before I lose myself, happy holidays folks.

@Smash: What makes you think the family is poor? Is it the video camera they're filming with, the TV and movies in the background, the computer and Internet connection they used to upload the video?

No, it's the family gift. They do one gift for the entire family in addition to whatever else they give. If you have three kids in the house like they do, it's not fair to give a Wii to just one of them.

@Panda: hell yeah, that's what my parents used to do for us kids. we'd get other presents, but only one really big family present (like when the N64 came out).

That's hillarious that's the thing you thought of to post, "but the family is probably poor." That's just made me fall out of my chair laughing at work.

I was waiting for them all to start scratching at it. I had about the same reaction when I got Modern Warfare 2. The camera was on so I tried to keep my cool. I didn't.

@ 59. Big A2: Geez calm down dude wth. He's just being friendly. You sound like one of those guys that screams RACIST if you call a black guy black. If anything, you're the pervert for interpreting it the way you did. By playing games with the kid and his family, I'm pretty sure he meant online via wifi...not at the kid's house next to him...
