Merry Christmas From All At Nintendo Life

Posted by Damien McFerran

Best wishes for the festive season

On the one day of the year when it's socially acceptable to consume your body weight in mince pies, sit in front of the TV all day long and drink copious amounts of mulled wine (or a non-alcoholic alternative), we wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas from everyone here at Nintendo Life.

Hopefully you got what you wanted from Santa today, be it a shiny new Wii U, a 3DS XL or simply some awesome games to play on your current system.

Let us know what Nintendo-related gifts you got by leaving a comment below!

My favorite Christmas as a kid was when I got my NES. I opened Probotector but thought my parents made a mistake since I didn't have an NES. Then at midday my uncle came down with an NES, Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt. All day I was playing Mario. It was cool to discover the warp zone by myself, not even knowing they existed before. Probotector was hard but fun.

Merry Christmas to all of you! Unfortunately we didn't do the present under the tree this year, (just a keyboard for my tablet and eshop points) instead we prepared presents for a neighbor who is young but a big Nintendo fan!

Nothing game related this year, unless you count Kindle apps. Which is just fine since my birthday is next month, and its a perfect excuse to get something for myself.

Marry Christmas everyone!:D

Bit late in the day, but a very Merry Christmas all! There's still loads of food and game days left in the holidays.
Thanks to NL and everyone for a load of laughs and to fellow users for being (mostly) a really great bunch.
We survived the Mayans, but step forward the next Doom Prophet :P

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays everyone!

I got a Wii U deluxe set + NSMBU! Was honestly not expecting it. Sadly, I won't get to play it very much this year since I'll be moving back to college in a few weeks and the Wii U isn't coming with. :(

I didn't get any new Nintendo games this year, which is fine because I didn't ask for any and I got plenty of other cool stuff that I did want. One of my favorite Christmas memories was the year I got Mega Man 2 for my NES. Feeling nostalgic, I fired up my Wii for a round of Mega Man 10 last night, had a nice long playthrough with Proto Man. Merry Christmas everyone and happy gaming!

Best Xmas memories:
(1) My wife, two sons (26 & 23), and myself playing NSMBU for a few hours on Xmas Eve.
(2) Listening to my wife's 'gamer noises' as she plays Super Mario 3D on her new white 3DS :)

So... ah... is it too early to ask what/if there's an eShop update for this week?? :P :)

Hope everyone had the best time possible!!!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!!

(See, even ol' grumbles is full of cheer, haha)

While I did have to work today, I still had a great Christmas! Didn't get anything Nintendo related, I spoil myself frequently with that, haha, but some of my best memories of Christmas are opening up a new NES when I was young, and all the wonderful games over the years, too. One of my favorite gifts was a GBA back in the day with Zelda Minish Cap ;)

Feliz' Navidad! Well, I got for Christmas: Clothing, accidental women gear (to be changed for men, heh don't ask), more clothing. As early gifts from my mom: Excalibur Sonic Figure, Rainbow Dash plush, Mario Kart 7, and a used copy of Super Mario 3D Land (which I had to buy myself with the only money I had). And my step-dad probably told me he got me a Gamestop gift card. That's pretty much it, and this year was what I'd call a haul since I don't really get much for Christmas, while my friends and others get loaded. (heck, one of my friends got over a hundred bucks and 3DS games and about 7 gifts from me, another got an Android tablet and 2 games from me, and another friend got a Kindle Fire) I never really think as Christmas about getting gifts though, I only wish to think it as about spending time with family and friends. I really wish I could see my family in Mexico right now, I really miss them. :')
