This sale is terrible. I already have too many games to play and I bought Bastion, Jackbox Party Pack 2, Scrabble, and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime anyway.

Vlad was a monster and absolutely should be in. And the known steroid guys, I have no sympathy for them. Would Clemens and Bonds be first ballot Hall of Famers if they never juiced? Absolutely. They were incredible players. But they blew it all away by cheating the game. Bonham, you said ask the players of that era. Do you think the clean players would be OK with Bonds and Clemens getting in? That's an insult to the guys that did it clean. And I don't care if 90% of the league was juicing and Selig and everyone turned a blind eye to it. It still doesn't make it OK. Sosa would be a shoo-in with his home run total if that were the case. And there are plenty of guys that seem suspicious that very well did take steroids, but if they weren't busted, I don't think it's fair to keep them out based on speculation.Anyway, here's my ballot, in no particular order.

Edgar Martinez- I hate the argument that he was a DH and therefore shouldn't get in. Guy was an incredible all-around hitter. There are plenty of defensive liabilities in the Hall, so why shouldn't a guy that didn't play defense get in if his offense was good enough?)

Curt Schilling- One of the clutchest pitchers in history with a postseason record that is almost unprecedented. Best strikeout-to-walk ration in history. A huge part of multiple World Series champs. Doesn't matter what his political views are, that should have nothing to do with it.

Ivan Rodriguez- One of the best defensive catchers of all-time, plus he played forever and was a very good hitter to boot.

Tim Raines- One of the best leadoff hitters ever who went too long being underappreciated. I'm glad he finally got in. If he played for the Yankees he would have been in years ago.

Trevor Hoffman- I read a stat today that he had the same save conversion rate as Mariano Rivera, but had a better strikeout rate. This guy was a stud for a long time and definitely deserves a spot.

Jeff Bagwell- Would have loved to see him get in the same year as Biggio, but he definitely deserves a spot. Hit for power, could run the bases, and he had one of my all-time favorite funky batting stances.

Vladimir Guerrero- Vlad was an animal that could hit anything within three feet of the plate. I remember seeing him golf balls off his shoetops over the center field wall. Hit for power, hit for average, and is right there with Ichiro for the best cannon I've ever seen in the outfield. And he could steal bases, too!

Fred McGriff- I know there's no way he's getting in now, but that's a real shame. Guy was a great hitter, and like Griffey, never had even a hint of steroid allegations against him. Other guys of the time were putting up big numbers while dirty, Crime Dog did it while clean. I think his numbers are obscured because of the inflated totals all the roidheads put up.

It's so tempting to watch that, but I want to try to avoid seeing too much of it before getting my own hands on it. The trailer during the Switch presentation was enough to get me sufficiently hyped.

It's crazy how many Tetris games there have been. My favorite was The New Tetris on N64. I like how you could make the perfect squares that were worth more, and the four-player battles were great.

I would recommend really paying attention to how you line up your guys. I always try to have one or even two people that can heal and a couple people that do good damage. Also pay attention to where your mission is and you will notice that you fight the same types of enemies, and some guys are better against them than others. For instance, there's one area where you go against a lot of pig-like monsters, and they bleed really easily. So if you can use characters that can make them bleed you can make quick work of them. Also, you have to know when a character is not worth saving, whether it is because they have too many bad afflictions and quirks and diseases or what, if you put a lot of money into them only to lose them you wasted it.

Hey Scott, you watch your mouth, that sandwich worked in the shipping department and would never make a mistake like that.

The bonham: a deluxe club sandwich with all the fixings that was cobbled together by trading liverwurst and olive loaf to high school students for their better sandwich ingredients, because kids are dumb. Also comes with a free beverage of your choice, unless you want coffee, because that's messed up and what is wrong with you anyway?

I absolutely love it. I've been playing it for a couple hours every night and it really is brutal, but very satisfying to make progress. Don't try it if you don't like difficult games though or it will make you crazy.

I downloaded it a couple months ago, and my wife and I played through it. It was a lot of fun! Lots of yelling back and forth and hilarious mistakes. I definitely recommend it for local co-op.

Yeah we definitely had participation issues. I wish FanDuel was smarter about allowing you to have however many people you wanted and then just scale the payouts to that.

I would have no interest in Part 3 of a game if the first two were on another console. I'd get it on that same console I had the first two on, and if I didn't have that console, I'd skip it altogether.

That's exactly my problem but I don't learn my lesson. I got one of the Shantae games last week, Hyper Light Drifter the week before that, and Axiom Verge the week before that. And I've been in the middle of playing Darkest Dungeon and have Doom and Dark Souls 2 physical copies waiting for me also ,but I'm dumb so I'm probably going to get Inside and The Witness here.

I checked it earlier, there is tons of stuff I'm interested in. At the top of the list is Inside and The Witness, both half off. I am Setsuna is a third off, and Jackbox Party Pack 2 and 3 are both deeply discounted.

Nice! I got Overwatch and some PSN money, which always comes in handy. I didn't really ask for any gaming stuff because I have a lot still to play, and I'm waiting for the Switch.

Alpha, what's different about an Elite controller? I've heard of them but just assumed it was the same controller with a more high quality build.

I've never seen something like it before. I think I've seen someone with the box to Mike Tyson's Punchout!!! autographed, but not this. I have to figure out a cool way to display it now- I have the game boxed, but traded the letter away a while ago. I think I have to get that back now.

I was surprised to not find a thread where people are posting what they got for Christmas, so I wanted to get one going.

My best friend and I usually get each other something game or sports related, but this year he really outdid himself, and I thought this was too cool not to share on here. Definitely the coolest piece of my collection, and the fact that it came from my favorite NES game is the icing on the cake.

Tough to tell from the picture, but this thing is big, I think 16 X 20. I have to find a nice frame for it for sure.

All three players have been paid their winnings, yes even you, bonham. How dare you not be logged in to GameTZ all day on Christmas to send me your Paypal address?

I just want to say that this was the most even, competitive league I've ever played in. With the exception of Reed, who had a lot of bad luck, and jgrant, who just didn't really ever set his lineup, the other ten teams were all right in it until the final week, and the playoffs were truly up for grabs. With everyone's teams being so even, it was going to come down to who made the best decisions, and Clearsights, with his Tyler Lockett call in the semis and Adam Thielen explosion in the finals, definitely deserved the win. I hope everyone comes back for another great season next year!

As for my predictions, neither of my two title game participants made the playoffs, and the two actual title game participants, I had them missing the playoffs. I ended up getting three out of the six, which I guess is OK, but not great.
