It's that time again folks and we are pleased to announce the categories for our 2011 End-of-the-Year Award Show! We are doing things a tad bit differently this year in the way that we record these podcasts. In order to separate all of the discussion into bite sized chunks, we have split the event into 4 shows that will be released over the course of a week. As of right now, our plans are to record these shows in the 2nd week of January and then release them throughout the week. We have some ideas for ways to include the community but those details have not been solidified yet. In the meantime, here is the list of the awards categories and the podcast breakdown. We hope you will join us!

    Sounds good, hopefully with the shows split you guys will have a little time to give some insight on your choices instead of having to rush through to cram everything into one show.

    Seems like a lot of content. I think my brain would implode having to remember game content from throughout the year with regards to so many categories.
