Merry Christmas!

Edge at Christmas

Edge at Christmas

We’re signing off for the Christmas and New Year break today, and this will be the last main post of 2012.

We’ve plenty planned for the next week or so, though. Expect a couple of seasonal entries in our Still Playing series, a look back at the year’s most significant news, and developers telling us about their favourite games of the year. We’ve a special, and uncommonly personal, feature planned for Christmas morning, too.

Normal service will be resumed on January 2. In the meantime, have a very merry, very restful Christmas – and make sure you find some time for some games, too. We’ll be settling down with Minecraft, Nintendo Land, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Far Cry 3 and, in the spirit of the season, the eternally festive Dark Souls. If you’ve a moment spare, let us know what you’ll be playing in the comments below.

Merry Christmas, then, and a happy New Year.
