I got the PDF of the magazine but only had a quick scan through it, I want to wait for the physical magazine in my hands to read it properly.

I don't know if the reviews look a bit squshed on A5 but it should be about the content anyway!

I got my annual a couple of days ago. I had just finished reading the previous year's annual (yeah, I know, a bit slow!), so it's good timing.

Had a quick flick through and there are some great looking articles in there.

I wonder what next years' annual will be like since the magazine will have covered a lot (all?) of the recent game reviews...

The obvious internal debate is, will there be an annual. There's been discussions between us all. Can't say currently what the outcome might be.

The annual really has to be new content and that is harder with the magazine being produced throughout the year, but the annual is a great format so it would be a pity to see it go...

Maybe more new features and any game reviews that were missed with a bit of a round-up of great games from the year... but it is a tricky one.

Personally I don’t think it should be a reprint of stuff that appears in the magazine. But always up for writing more content :D
