"Yes, we've reached that time of the year when we're bored of it being 2008 and we're wistfully thinking ahead to 2009 and all the great things it will bring us.
For instance, 2009 will be the year of the next general election – which could mean it's a year of change. And possibly the year Britain goes completely bankrupt and I have to move into a trailer home. It's also the year Lithuania will celebrate the millennium of its name, and the Oasis of the Seas cruise ship – the largest passenger ship ever built – will make its maiden voyage carrying 5,400 passengers. Let's hope they've not skimped on lifeboats for aesthetic reasons.
Highly interesting as this all is, though, here at Pocket Gamer we prefer to debate the more important goings on. Namely, what DS games are going to be released that are worth buying."
