I have just submitted my first ever video game review. It's in the queue waiting for you lovely people to read and approve it! Hopefully before the end of January!

Did I need to write in there somewhere that it was eligible for this contest and has the theme "2014"???? If so I'll have to do that once it's approved!



For those people who didn't read the review while it was in the queue, you can find it here: To be amongst the Elite Dangerous is to fly free.
