Happy Holidays from Shacknews

On behalf of the entire Shacknews team, I wanted to wish you a happy holiday. We're going to be taking a few days off to spend time with friends and family, and play video games (to avoid aforementioned friends and family). During this time, we'll be catching up on our backlogs so that we can debate GOTY selections like the intelligent monkeys we are. (Make sure you let us know what we absolutely must consider!)

News updates will be relatively slow until the new year, unless Valve announces Half-Life 3. We'll probably come off our eggnog-induced stupor to write about that.

2013 was an exciting year for us, with us finally caving in to review scores and Metacritic. And after years, we finally have a not-terrible video player, hooray! Looking forward, 2014 looks to be one of the most exciting years in Shacknews history, and we'll have more on that front in time.

Thank you so much for being a continued part of the Shacknews family.
