Your Holiday Haul?

'Tis the season for iOS gamers. It's like our Black Friday right now, which by the way, thanks, AppShopper. Apple may have pulled you, but you're still getting the job done nicely for me.

So, what has the deity of your choice brought you thus far this holiday season?

For me, I've gotten:
  • ORC: Vengeance (was free -- and dang, it's good!)
  • Total War Battles: Shogun (playing through it now and enjoying it)
  • Jet Set Radio (no room on my phone right now but bought it while it's on sale)
  • SFIV Volt (Disappointing, already erased)
  • Bookworm (another PopCap classic for my collection for only a buck)

Also hoping to get Autumn Dynasty once I can make more room on my jam-packed phone.

Final Fantasy Tactics -- all day, every day.

I'm actually pooling a lot of my money into the Steam sale... I don't really wait for sales on iOS so big holiday seasons like this aren't much of a big deal to me.

But iOS-specific, the one game that has held my interest the most is Ronin. Even though I bought just about every major release from last week...

I ended up grabbing NFS Most Wanted and Eufloria HD. Also downloaded Orc while it was free. I am pleasantly surprised at how much I am enjoying all three games at the moment. Grab them if you haven't yet.

Didnt get any on sale. It's either I already have it, or i wasnt interested at it at all.

Oh... i got Call of Mini: Brawlers for free. I thought i already had it downloaded before, but found out wasnt. Still havent played it. LOL

Spent a lot on the new releases though.

EDIT: OH! I bought all IAPs in Demon's Score, but i still need to unlock the final Demon.
