Merry Christmas from Player 2
Well, it is that time of year again, time to put the keyboard away and have a break. But before we do, we would just like to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to each and every one of our readers. If you don’t personally celebrate Christmas, we sincerely hope you have some wonderful time off with friends and family.
Player 2 will be taking a break until early January, where we will be migrating to a new web host, so we can’t quite give an exact date of our return. But don’t fret, it will be sometime in the first week of the month so you won’t have to wait too long for our brand of gaming insanity to return.
In the meantime, if you are looking for something to read, the following is a list of articles, put together by the P2 crew, from some of our favourite Australian games writers. These are just a small example of the great content produced by Australian games media in 2018 and proof positive that the talent in this country is second to none. This list is by no means exhaustive and I am sure we have missed some of your personal favourites. With that in mind, the best thing you can do for writers you enjoy is to share their work. It means the world to all of us when we find out someone has appreciated our writing enough to share it.
