I just bought FF4 and 5 as well as the After Years for Android as well as the Xbox One version of Halo. I already bought the PS4 and Xbone the day they came out. I guess I could count my new Galaxy Note 3 since I bought it a week before Christmas.

I already bought a gaming laptop and Android tablet a few months ago......

I bought a new microATX minitower PC case because my old one can fit only video cards that are less than 9" long. That's about it. I don't really need anything else. I assembled a new PC for my eldest kid. I got the youngest a Nintendo DSi. I got the wife a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.

A really cheap watch to take back to basic training. There's nothing I want or need at the moment, I've been given gift vouchers for the two main shopping centres in my area but haven't a clue what to spend them on.

I've been wanting to see BB for a long time now, but I'm too busy with other stuff. I feel like I'm the only one on the internet that hasn't seen it.

That sort of defeats the purpose of Boxing day, doesn't it?

@Lord_Daemon: Those are nice movies. Even the shitty, non-Jackie dubbed original Armour of God (it has its charm). My friend and I used to watch it once a year back in high school. As for Project A, if you liked seeing Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao and Jackie on screen, did you ever check out Dragons Forever? There are some pretty great fight scenes there as well.

On topic: Seems like just Borderlands 2 DLC. And a Buster Keaton boxset (where Christmas money partly went to). And bought a new pair of loafers on Boxing Day that I really like.

@Sharpie125: Indeed I have seen Dragons Forever as I've seen most of Jackie Chan's films and watch them quite regularly along with a number of Yuen Biao and Sammo Hung's films over the years. Out of curiosity have you ever seen the film that was supposed to be the reunion of the "three brothers" called Don't Give A Damn (AKA Burger Cop)? Sadly (or luckily) Chan pulled out to film the awful Rumble in the Bronx and was replaced by Takeshi Kaneshiro. A move, which normally would be awesome because...well Kaneshiro is awesome, but sadly the film's writer oddly had complete control and the actors were forced into performing some quite offensive antics regarding black-face.

@Lord_Daemon: Oh, damn. I haven't seen that (thought you were talking about Wheels on Meals for a sec) but I think most of my "kung fu" viewing comes from my buddy's Jackie collection. So it's just a treat when Yuen Biao and Sammo appear in any of them, but if Jackie's not in it I probably haven't seen it.
