Feature: Feathers and festivities!

A definitive ranking of CS:GO’s festive chickens

Valve has dressed its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive [official site] chickens up in many a festive outfit over the years, from chicken-sized Christmas jumpers to pink Easter bunny ears. But how do these festive fowl stack up against one another in terms of holiday loveliness? There's only one way to find out: an Alice and Pip chat. Pip: Alice!

The RPS Super Uplifting And Helpful Holiday Buyer’s Guide

It's almost Black Friday! Also, I guess that Thanksgiving thing is happening somewhere in between for filthy Americans, but that's just a warm-up. A sentimental stop-gap.

While it seems almost impossible that you might need another Christmas run-down, the handsome chaps at Eurogamer have shamelessly copied our idea by starting their annual (oh, wait) Top 50 countdown.
