cool idea getting the articles seen again once their time in the light is over, they certainly don't stick around on sites like reviews do.

Acj23233399d ago

Yeah, its a good look back on the year and what happened, with some articles sparking some memories.

gaminoz3399d ago

Amazingly most of them still seem to apply.

Wii is still doing well with shovelware.
The battle against pirates continues.
GI Joe shooters are still the norm.
Split-screen is still being ignored (well except for Gears and Resistance and COD: WAW)
Faceplates are still not really being used
Internet still sucks in Australia
Live is still probably not as good value in OZ as it is in US.

Steelspawn3399d ago

Have to agree with gaminoz. So many of those articles still apply 12 or so months later.

Sweet, missed some of these articles so its good for a chance to relook at them.
