Hmmm, decisions, decisions... on one hand, the joy of giving someone a bunch of things they want is great... on the other hand, I've still got a huge list of games to get through and don't need to add to it!

Might sleep on this one. At least I've cleaned out a lot of crap on my wishlist.

It would be nice if I can get a sticky and a news article to go with it (last time the news article was great, just too late).

Same. I'm currently staring at my wishlist and wondering, apart from MKX, if I actually want any of the other games coz I know there's like half a dozen games I actually play.

But then I'm tempted to sign up and see if anyone is actually going to gift me Bad ass babes.

Finally managed to slim down my wishlist to something more manageable and also include just titles I know I'd play as opposed to stuff that looks interest or I know is good but I'd never load up. Surprisingly, a lot of indie titles. Should be a good number of titles for my gifter to pick from depending on what's on sale.

A news article was supposed to go up a few days ago but that seems to have not happened, unfortunately. PA staff must be busy so it got forgotten.

I was wondering what had happened to that news article... was interested to see how interest would be after it.

And it begins... the confirmation, not the buying.

Still questioning things around some of my wishlist entries. I keep taking things off and putting them back on. If anything, it's been interesting going through everyone's wishlists.

Whilst I do not know the other side of the story -- of which everything could change -- from my end it comes across as pretty damn lacklustre support :(.

On a more positive note, only Dibbles remains to reply to the PM sent out which means we are one step away from the gift planning!

We still have a bit of time - send Jambo a PM and see if he'll put an announcement up on the PA steam group?
