Well, another year has come and gone and I’ve been playing a little bit of Team Fortress 2 to celebrate a prolific and productive year. Here at AS Movies & Games HQ, we hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. Don’t forget to let us know what you’ve been playing and watching in the comments section below!
In the gaming world, 2013 saw the release of games like Dead Rising 3, Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us, Payday 2, Arma III, Shadow Warrior, Wasteland 2, Crysis 3, Planetary Annihilation, and SimCity among others.
Despite this amazing lineup, I can’t say that I’ve played many new games recently. This year, I completed Bastion and Ys Chronicles. I’ve also been playing a bit of VVVVVV, and during the holidays I’ve been playing Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Team Fortress 2 like I already mentioned. You can’t blame me for wanting to play “older” games, especially when I haven’t even touched them yet.
In the movie world, 2013 saw the release of titles like Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Conjuring, Kill Your Darlings, Robot & Frank, World War Z, The Place Beyond the Pines, Saving Mr. Banks, Star Trek Into Darkness, About Time, Philomena, Man of Steel, Trance, All is Lost, Upstream Colour, Cloud Atlas, Blackfish, Blue Jasmine, Django Unchained, The World’s End, Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Beauty, Before Midnight, Iron Man 3, Lincoln, Captain Phillips, and Gravity.
I have watched quite a few movies this year, but not many of them were new. I did see Django Unchained, and I would like to see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues as well as Lincoln and Iron Man 3 as well. There isn’t any rush, but if things go my way I will have the chance to go and see Anchorman 2 in short order.
As for the site itself, it has been a fairly eventful year, with numerous site design revisions and malicious hacking. We’ve gone back and thickened up old content, and there is definitely more to do in that regard. Many of the older posts didn’t even have photos yet, and that matter had to be taken care of.
Looking forward, we intend to bring on more writers to create more fun and engaging content. We intend to start our own podcast, and we intend to create more videos as well. Stay tuned, because there are definitely some exciting things on the way!
Oh, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
