Merry Boxing Day to you all! How are you feeling? Slightly hung over? Full to the rafters with turkey and Christmas pud? Surrounded by wrapping paper piled to the height of a small child? Well, grab some nog, lean back in your arm chair, let out a puddingy burp and let us know what you got on this happiest of holidays.

Did you get that game you were hankering for? Maybe that extra little bit tech you’ve been rubbing your hands over for weeks. Nothing says Christmas more than a brand spanking new GPU here at Game Debate. Or a festively themed AMD CPU, their colour is red after all, the merriest coloured CPU manufacturer you could hope for. Why not hang some from your tree?

But maybe you’ve gone the other way and treated yourself, got yourself the gift you were really after. You are the perfect person to buy presents for. Only you will truly know the exact variant of the XFX RX480 that you crave. It’s the one present you can be sure you don’t need a receipt for. Is that the kind of Christmas you’ve had?

Or has it been a slightly disappointing Xmas. Did you get a pile of socks and a Pentium 4? Or perhaps your gran got you a GPU with an AGP slot? Did the man say at the store that they were all the rage? Tell us your tales of woe and be reconciled by the amazing GD community.

Regardless of however your Xmas day went, we’re all slightly pointy ears. Sit round the fire, open a bottle of port to wash down the nog and let’s rejoice to our lord and saviour, Father Christmas, by telling tales of what goodies we got in 2016. Let us know down below and again, Merry boxing Day and Happy Holidays from us at GD!

One buddy here gifted me Just Cause 3 :)


Other than that - that's about it. I didn't get anything gaming-related this Christmas. But I did get a trip to New York from my gf :)

Bought ISIDE from Steam, Unravel from Origin, ReCore from Windows Store and an album(Level 7) from Miracle of Sound. Now I am thinking about Ryse: Son of Rome or another album from Miracle Of Sound or an album from SCANDAL or pizza :)

My friend did this once with the newest AvP game, bought it for me and one other friend also. Despite of bad reviews we had a blast with the game. That reminds me, gotta buy AvP on Steam sale now, since I only have the PS3 version :D

An ASUS 24" 1920x1080 monitor for dual monitor setup, The Half-Life Collection, Beholder, Portal, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal, Destroy All Humans, and TimeSplitters: Future Perfect for my PS2. I also got a PSX emulator working, so I've got the PSX library to paly through too.

An RX 480, Doom, Fallout 4, and Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor... all three of which had been on my wishlist for a while, and the RX 480 has been my dream card since it first came out!

Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB.... would've preferred the 8GB, but after all is said and done, got this one for $175 after rebate or $190 before rebate.... it's a really nice card for the price, has some premium features like a backplate, quick detach fans, dual BIOS, and RGB LEDs, oh, and an 8-pin connector.
