Well, here we are. Once again, a new year has rolled around. Once again, I find myself wondering, “Where did the past year go?” Here is a look at a few of the highlights from the past year.
[*]Snackbar Games starts off a new year with big plans in mind. Cone announces his big plans for the Gamertag directory.
[*]The big mystery with the Phantom begins…hey, wait. We still know nothing.
[*]Cone and I buy our first house. We kiss lots of $$$ down to the drain to closing costs.
[*]Pickle goes MIA for a while due to [i]Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles.[/i]
[*]Nintendo GBA sales hit the 20-million mark in the United States.
[*]We move into our new house, get a new puppy, and I get put on bed rest for high blood pressure (remember I was pregnant at this time last year).
[*]Cone moves us to our new style of forum. So pretty…
[*]Infinium Labs decides to sue [H]ardOCP for lying about things they said in an article. ([H]ardOCP has just won that suit.)
[*]I give birth to our baby boy, Ethan, on the last day of March. Yay!
[*]Cone and our good friend The Wraith slave many hours getting Xbox Live information to add to the [url=http://www.snackbar-games.com/gamertag/]Gamertag directory[/url].
[*]Sony announces that [i][url=http://www.snackbar-games.com/reviews/152]Jak 3[/url][/i] and [i]Ratchet and Clank 3[/i] will be the last in both of their series. I think I cried.
[*]We adjust to the life of being parents. Why does getting no sleep due to partying and staying up late playing video games feel so different than getting no sleep due to taking care of a baby?
[*]Pretzel moves from the armpit of Texas (Houston) back home to the great city of San Antonio.
[*]The guys at Penny Arcade announce “The Omega Collection”-over $15,000 worth of video game things to be given away at the first ever [url=http://www.pennyarcadeexpo.com/]Penny Arcade Expo[/url] (PAX).
[*]We lose our first child, our cat Riku, who gets hit by a car. It was very sad.
[*]Cone adds banner ads to the site so that we can start giving cool stuff away to our readers. We also start Project Snack to help out a family in our community who was robbed. This was a big month for us; we also have our Snackbar meet-up which was a huge success.
[*]PS3 is starting to be rumored to sell somewhere around $500. [i]Doom 3[/i]’s release date is announced.
[*]We go on vacation to Disneyland. Fun times.
[*]We start having a contest craze. Why? Beause we love you guys!
[*][i]Doom 3[/i] goes gold, and Nintendo announces the launch date and cost of the Nintendo DS.
[*]I vow to never fly again after our retched adventure trying to get to San Diego.
[*]Cone “enhances” the site. That just means it works more smoothly for those running it and really has nothing to do with you.
[*][i][url=http://www.snackbar-games.com/reviews/127]Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow[/url][/i] comes out, and we all spend massive amounts of time shooting people.
[*]Pickle and Cone both turn 24.
[*]Pickle and Pretzel head out to [url=http://www.goxgaming.com/]Xtreme Gaming CafA
