Before I get into it, I just want to do my usual promo of current work going live. As per week, my recent WiiChat column has gone up with another due just before Christmas Day and then probably one more next week (I think): http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-articles/
My entry to the Best Games of 2006 are over at Boomtown as well: http://pc.boomtown.net/en_uk/articles/art.view.php?id=13087
Anyhoo, the bulk of this entry beckons: it’s the inevitable ‘best of’ gubbins which is always good for this time of year (and not being used because I have little else to write about at the moment, oh ho ho ho no). The ‘rules’ are simple. Just copy and paste the below and remove my choices, adding your own. Your selection doesn’t have to be stuff released just in 2006, it may be something you’ve discovered this year but been out for a few years or whatever – just as long as your FIRST ENCOUNTER with it is this year. It can also be as in-depth or little as you want and you don’t have to use every category, especially if you can’t think of something for it at the time. There’s nothing too personal here, but as I said before, ignore questions you don’t want to answer. Although obviously, they’ll be conspicuous by their absence and I’ll note it for future reference 😉
If you’re new, feel free to join in… consider it a meet and greet of sorts.
So here’s my batch, in no particular order.
You know this one already

A BIZARRE EVENT FROM THE YEAR
Applying to become a series writer, with little experience, then actually getting the job before realising a whole several months later that it’s the real deal. Whu-guh?
AIMS FOR 2007
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all! 🙂
