That’s a wrap: We’ll see you in 2014, bigger and better than ever!

Closed SIgn

By on December 23, 2013 at 9:44 am

With Christmas only two days away, we’re officially locking the doors and turning out the lights here at games.on.net — so if you’ve already hit the egg nog too hard and you’re trying to sleep it off quietly under one of our many tables, I’m sorry — you have to get out.

(This applies only to our front-end news and reviews service, of course — our games servers and forums will continue to stay operational.)

It’s been wonderful having you all with us here in 2013, a year of great gaming and great community good times. We’ll be going dark from now until Monday January 6, when we’ll re-open for business, dust off the cobwebs, and get back to providing you with what is, unquestionably, Australia’s biggest and best PC gaming site. Represent.

On a personal note I’d like to thank you all for another year tolerating my rambling idiocy as your resident Editor-in-Chimp, and offer my gratitude for your support, love, loathing and/or hatred (delete where not applicable) — the site wouldn’t be what it is without you all and I love you to pieces.

To the game admins, thank you for another fantastic year of keeping our servers cheater and griefer free, and for all the hard work you do without a cent of payment in return. And to my staff and writers, keep up the good work or I’ll break your damn legs.

Love you all. Have a safe and happy Christmas, and we’ll see you in 2014. Don’t forget to enter our Game of the Year Reader Awards! That $2,400 laptop isn’t going to win itself!

Thanx GON for the all the informative and often amusing reviews and news articles this year!
Merry xmas to all!!

 

Been a good year. Though I think Gaming News will get more interesting over 2014 and 2015 so you guys are gonna have your work cut out :D

Enjoy the break guys!

 

Wait… people actually consume egg nog? I always thought that was an American tradition or one of those things you see happen in movies but never in RL!

 

Merry Christmas!

 

Happy Christmas and a merry new year!

 

The changes you guys made focussing on pc games and adding hardware reviews were really good.

Keep up the good work!

 

filezilla,

Of course Australians drink it, most recipes have rum and brandy in it ;)

Merry Chistmas

awww, what am I going to read every morning for my two weeks off? :(

Done good this year. Looking forward to another GON filled 2014.

Also, I think the laptop should win itself… someone should put an entry in on behalf of the laptop.

 

Merry Christmas to all!

 

Merry Xmas!

 

Merry primary gifting period.

 

Merry Christmas guys!
