So what is the protocol on duplicates?

Thanks to RMC for Pandemic and Field of Glory from Blackhawk and I also got those 2 from Formix and Skinypupy.

I sent Isgrimnur Beyond Earth, so no one else do it!

I probably do most my giving this weekend after I get paid.

I played all three this year. I rate that a solid 'yes.' The ties between them run pretty deep, and they play more like a three part story than most shooters do.

then the follow-up question - original or Redux versions of 2033 and Last Light? i have the original of 2033 on Steam and the remake on Epic, and i don't own Last Light at all. the original versions are no longer available _anywhere_ from what i know.

Saves don't carry over, so I'd go with the Redux and play them wherever you have them. Note that there are multiple endings to each, and that the sequels assume one particular ending. The endings are based on the choices you make all through the game. This can mean that you can have something major happen in one game, only to have the next game pretend that it didn't happen. It isn't too much of thing as long as you know it can happen and roll with it (I'd suggest looking up all the endings to each one after you finish each so that you'll be prepared for the one that's 'canon'.)

/edit - also, that series was absolutely fantastic. I loved every minute of every one of the games.

Formix - Thanks for both Waterdeep and Rise of Nations.

Both games I just have not bought but have wanted for a while.

Thanks everyone for everything.

Don't forget to update the list (linked in the first post) with your given/received. I usually use the list later in the sale to make sure that nobody was forgotten.

I didn't expect you to reciprocate, so don't worry about the list ( I didn't list sending it on my list count, either.) Just have fun.

/edit - that was to Daehawk.

Thank you to Jaddison for ICBM! Time to nuke some folks....

And while it did it privately, here's a public thank you to Isgrimnur for Dirt Rally. I'll try and keep it on the path.

@Grifman - I think I sent you the ATOM expansion. You are very welcome.

Thank you Jaddison for Divinity II ! Wow you guys are working overtime to make a guy who cant participate to have a lot of fun over the holidays.

I loved DOS 1 except for the between party banter which drove me nuts(*insert pirate with a ship wheel on crotch here*) so think Ill just go to DOS 2 and play it instead.

Thanks again!

Merry Christmas all.

Okay, I sat out the last two years and now I'm trying to give some gifts. Why would I be able to put a game in my cart but the "Give as Gift" option is not available? I can see it, I just can't select it. Doesn't seem to effect all games. :?

It's very odd - I couldn't get some games to work in either app. I did finally get something on the list to work - just curious why. Oh well - Merry Wishmaslist to all!
