Hello, hello! Hope you've enjoyed the first week of December! Next week is the last week of school for me and for many of you. This weekend will be a busy one, studying for finals and stressing out over grades, but fear not for the end is in sight!

Soon exams and papers and projects will be behind us and we can get back to our favorite hobby, gaming! Many games have come out these last few months that I've been eager to get my hands on but knew that if I did I would not be able to focus enough on school. After next week I will finally be able to check them out! I'm personally excited for Sunset Overdrive, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Pokemon Omega Ruby. It will be a fun winter break for me, getting caught up on all the gaming I've missed out on.

So how about you guys? What games are you excited to play that you missed out on because of a busy school or work schedule? What games will you be playing over the Holidays? Sound off about you Holiday gaming plans or Talk Amongst Yourselves about whatever below! Good luck on finals if you have them next week!
