1 million unique viewers can't be wrong!!!

Well bugger me! Gears of Halo has hit the 1 million unique individual visitors mark. I'm giving myself a pat on the back and one for you as well dear readers!

This blog was started in late 2009 in anticipation of the release of Halo Reach - and what fun that was stalking following Bungie's every move and uttering. Since then, the site become 'Gears of War' and delved more widely into the gaming universe - and Hl. alo fans have come along for the ride, with the odd Mass Effect and Gears fan joining in as well. Below is a recap of the best of year to see where we actually went!

That first big spike in the graph is the release of Halo 4. Some random spikes are when HBO has kindly linked to us (such as the link to A Noble Hunt). Cheers guys! Every time something awesome is announced Halo wise, there's often a little growth in traffic too.

Who knows what we'll do during the next year or next 1 million unique readers but I say thanks to those who've come and helped make what is I think an interesting and perhaps useful corner of cyberspace.

Game Reviews:

I only buy very few new games – I tend to stick to what I know – suffice to say here’s the new games I played this year:

Bioshock 2 – the sequel to Bioshock did the deed and held up as a very solid sequel.
Gears of War 3 – Gears 3 come out and kicked some ass.
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary – Halo CE Redux has a lot going for it!
Mass Effect 2 – I was late to the party on this game but it was a great party!
