Overdue Xmas Post

First of all, I sincerely apologize because I had promised the Daymonster that as a Xmas gift to him I would do a post, but the holiday came and went and I was too busy (mostly lazy) to write anything so I'll do so now. Please accept this post as a belated Xmas present, my dear friend The Daymonster.

As you may know, I'm now married and living in Austria. I moved here in July, but made a major life decision, arguably a bigger decision than getting married or emigrating from the USA, of not bringing my Xbox with me. I thought it would be better for me to live without that distraction and it may have been, especially in the first few months when I was taking classes to refresh my German and looking for jobs. But now I've got a job and feel fairly comfortable speaking German all day, so I asked my bro to ship me my Xbox as a Xmas gift and I believe it's on the way to me right now, at least I hope so. So I'd really like to know first what games you guys are playing. I assume Black Ops, but anything else? Also, what times are you guys on Live? I'm on Central European Time, so 7 hours ahead of Central US. There's no way I'll ever play Black Ops unless I know I can team up with my clanmates since COD was never my favorite game to begin with.

The Knights in Minnesota may be interested to know that I'll likely be returning to the USA for a couple weeks in late April. My wife is a teacher so she has some time off for Easter and it happens to be my birthday so I'd really like to come back to celebrate it with you guys. I'll definitely let everyone know when I've booked a flight and then we need to start planning a clan get-together because I'll want to see everyone. I'll first want to play a ton of vids with everyone, then drink a lot of Summit, then hopefully a UFC event will happen during that time too, because that's another thing I haven't been keeping up to date on.

Now a couple topics to hopefully generate some comments. Did anyone get any cool Xmas gifts? What's everyone doing for New Year's? As mentioned earlier, I'm hoping to get my old Xbox soon and that will literally be the best gift I've received in a long while. Besides that, I got a nice watch and Football Manager 2011, which is the latest edition of the most addictive sports game ever. So far I actually haven't started playing it yet, because I can't quit playing a saved game I have on the 2010 version! New Year's here doesn't seem like such a big deal as in the USA. I remember like every bar would be advertising specials but here I don't see much of it. Instead of going out, we're partying at a friend of a friend's place, where I think we'll be playing a lot of board games i.e. Settlers of Catan.

So there's my post! Merry Christmas Daymonster and everyone else!!

What should I call my new game?

I'm making a new game. What should I call it?
