Monthly Blog (December Edition)...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. I wish you all had a great 2008 year as I did as it was filled with a collection of great games that almost matched the greatness of 2007. I hope 2009 becomes as great as those and that gaming industry continues growing to the better. We already know some of the highly anticipated games of 2009 such as Resident Evil 5, maybe Final Fantasy XIII, Killzone 2, inFamous and some more but I hope some developers stun us with some surprise releases and hope the mighty Nintendo come up with a better lineup for this year. Enough talking and lets get started with my December monthly blog.

First of all, if you became acquainted with my monthly blog you'd know by now that I always start with an image. Although I'm not christian and we don't celebrate Christmas, I believe most of you do, so here is a lovely picture taken by ~lilhyperbabe
for a very cute baby celebrating Christmas in his own way :)
