Five quid, some clothes, a vacuum cleaner, three bottles of cider and a whole pile of tooth decay waiting to happen. Aside from the vacuum, that's about normal for me.

I got the latest James Bond novel (Trigger Mortis), a gun-handled mug, a pair really comfortable slipper socks, a jumper, some luxury white hot chocolate and flakes to sprinkle on, "very peculiar" milk chocolate with a hint of Marmite indulgence, post-it notes shaped like briefs, volumes 3 (Death of the Family) and 4 (Zero Year - Secret City) of Batman comics, the official DC Comics 2016 calender, a 12 month subscription to PS+ and Star Wars Battlefront.

Pretty damn satisfied, as ever.

Knowing my brother he'll have just gotten it via Amazon or HMV.

Edit, just noticed now I've had a better look at it (although it really shouldn't have taken a second look to notice) it wasn't in plastic wrapping, not saying it is second hand but I suppose it has the potential to be. Oh well top films the lot of them!

Gave in and got my wife a PS4, which means I'm finally fully next-gen! Unsure whether to start Syndicate, Phantom Pain or Arkham Knight first.
