January again? Already?
Well, we're stuffed. We've eaten five times our weight in mince pies, drunk more alcopops than can possibly be healthy and, frankly, we're beginning to regret it. We may even join a gym.
Actually, bollocks to that. The only sane response to an excess of excess over the Christmas period is to spend a couple of days sleeping it off and then get back out there and start again.
Yup. It's awards time again. On the 31st of January, we'll be decamping to a basement in London's 'glittering' West End, to celebrate what has, by any standards, been a fantastic year of videogaemes. Come along, it'll be fun.
To help get you in the mood for the night, Koworld presents our list of nominations for 2007 and we have the first batch of our Game of the Year nominations - there will be three more along shortly...
Elsewhere, we have the first installment of Puffle's lunatic quest to clear her backlog, Ely goes all handheld, Maibock introduces us to his own version of the naughty step and we go calendar mental for the bonus stages.
Look out for the next dose of the Original Spirit on 1st February, bring Alka Seltzer.
