Of course, there are also those times that I regret being a gamer, let alone writing reviews (or recording podcasts) about them. By the time this is posted, both Kelly and I will have provided our take on the top and bottom five games of the year, which can be listened to by clicking on the microphone icon on the top left corner of this page. However, due to what I hate to call time constraints, I was not able to provide some special awards that I wanted to give out. That will be taken care of right now."
