And that’s us done for 2016! It’s been a rollercoaster year, both personally and throughout the video games industry in general and we’re all deeply, deeply grateful to have played a part in it.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our content throughout the year as we’ve changed, evolved and experimented. It’s not quite over yet, as we still have one more podcast to publish next week. But that’s on autopilot.

Myself, Tom, Keith and Russell are taking a well needed and well earned break from the site for a couple of weeks. We’ll be back on January 1 with a couple of catch-up reviews, before launching into the New Year with our Game of the Year coverage.

Once that’s over we’ll be right back to covering the industry and bringing you all the reviews, gameplay, opinions and more that you’ve come to expect. With a few surprise twists thrown into the mix as we strive for that elusive perfection.

From all of us here at Words About Games, we wish you the very best for the holiday period and the year ahead.
