Kotaku Originals: Boxing Day

That's what they call the day after Christmas in more civilized parts of the world. In my household, we call it "Distended Saturday." And while you're still digesting yesterday's feast, here's a recap of our buffet of original reporting.

Small housekeeping note, in observance of the holiday, the weekend report will be shortened to posts roughly once every two hours, with some exceptions. All standing weekend features will run at their normal times, with another exception: No weekend coupons, as the orgy of consumerism has bled most major retailers dry. If you got something you hate, go trade it in for store credit, that's the best buy-none-get-one-free deal of all.
