Dear Santa,

I know that I’m cutting it pretty damn close to the big day but as always, here’s my Christmas Wishlist.

I’m writing this a little later than usual because as you know, life can be crazy with a wife, my daughter, work and everything in between. This year has had it’s share of ups and downs for me but it looks like I’m going to make it out of 2013 after all. I’ve been very well behaved and have managed to not break a single controller all year long (HUGE WIN!). My gamerscore continues to climb to levels unlike those of most friends(About 17000GS added this calendar year). I also got myself an Xbox One with a few games which I’ve really enjoyed playing and teaching the family how to use the voice controls. At any rate, here’s my Christmas Wishlist:

1 – An adapter for my Turtlebeach headset to work with my Xbox One and PS4 for chat and audio. This is near the top of my list because I don’t want to go out and spend $300 on a new headset. I just got this one a little over a year ago.

2 – A trip to E3. Every year I say I’m going to make the trip and yet, every year something gets in the way. This year I had my money all set aside, I had a plan to go see some friends in California and go with them and then I was laid off. Please help me make it possible this year.

3 – I love my Xbox One and I know I’ll get myself a PS4 in 2014 but please Santa, I need to see more mind blowing games and I need to see that they’re going to be out in 2014. I’m pretty sure TitanFall is going to knock it out of the park but that’s one title. I need more more more.

4 – New Leadership for Nintendo…I’m sorry but Nintendo is a shadow of it’s former self. Whenever Nintendo has something to announce, I roll my eyes because it’s just sad to see Reggie saunter out and talk about how awesome they’re doing when clearly, we know that to be false. The only thing they have going for them are their first party titles. They should just get out of the console business and make games OR they need to rethink their strategies and make something mind blowing that excites gamers and developers alike.

5 – Better XboxOne interface – I love the system but, as I outlined in my review, it’s not without it’s faults. Can you please ensure a swift turn around on those adjustments to party chat, video playback format support and the glitchy things that keep popping up.

6 – Lastly, I need a little more time in my day to write. Actually all of us here at FYC could use a little more time to spend here at our little slice on the web.

Thanks for taking note Santa. Merry Christmas to you and everyone else.
