My reaction is

The New Year has dawned upon us already, and while it is only a change of date for many, for us gamer folks, it’s a whole new year of awesome games we probably won’t be able to pay for entirely. Generally, January-ies are considered as the throw-away month – the month were we hastily complete the leftovers from last year in order to prepare ourselves for the awesome games we won’t be able to pay…oh right, I already used that one.

But this year’s a bit different – annoyingly, there are some good games coming out which demands for our attention. Let’s say just that, if you are still playing Skyrim and like Final Fantasy/Fighting games, you are getting one in the knee, mate.
