Mainly just meeting with relatives, Christmas is pretty much a three day thing for me because of how big the family is, mostly on my dad's side.
Just watching an analysis of the dmc demo now, guy doing it does bring up some very valid complaints. Do think it has potential to be good still, but there are some pretty small things missing that make a big difference. Lock on and jump cancelling mainly. Personally feel taunting shouldn't have been removed either, it was a useful game mechanic and was just fun to do at times.
Also, typing with a sleeping pug on your lap can be tough if you don't want to disturb him or her and end up getting grunted at. XD
