Aeroplane Jelly for me.

The first month of the year 2006 has already been and gone. How crazy is that!? We're past the site's one year mark, damn, that was quick! The Buttonhole crew recently had a party to celebrate our site's First Year Anniversary. I'll post some shots of the occasion on the site soon. It was a truly excellent night.
After the slow going, post Christmas, quiet spell that January is known to be (at least, when it comes to the kinds of topics we cover), things are getting back to normal. The games, DVDs, CDs etc. are all starting to regularly find their way to Buttonhole HQ once again. Lovely!
What an amazing year this looks set to be too. The Xbox 360 is about to hit Aussie shores really soon. We can also look forward to Sony's PS3 and Nintendo's Revolution console (along with a revamped version of Ninty's DS) in the months ahead. From what I've seen and heard, all three of the machines have plenty going for them. I'm really excited to see how it all goes. We'll do our best to cover all of the systems and their games.
The current generation of systems still have a huge number of great looking titles on the way as well. There will be no shortage of cool games to choose from, that much is for certain!
As far as what we review and what we don't (for games or any of our other topics), it usually just comes down to this: we'll happily cover whatever we are sent! Thankfully, we already have a bunch of awesome publishers supporting us.
That reminds me, during this second year of ours, Buttonhole will begin reviewing some import games here and there. The kind of titles that don't get released on Australian retail shelves. Our mates at Realgamer agreed to supply us with those. I'm really happy about that, as I'm keen to play them myself! Plus, it just helps us stand out from the other (vastly less entertaining) Aussie game sites even more. It also means we can inform our readers about some funky games they otherwise might've been unaware of. All good.
Because of all our supporters, we're going to continue receiving plenty of products to review. We get a great mix of different style CDs & DVDs for our music section. And a wide variety of movie DVDs will keep rolling in. Of course, Shock will still be helping us out with the WWE wrestling DVDs too.
Speaking of Wrestling, the next Wrestlemania PPV is fast approaching. I always get a huge kick out of that. It is nice of Vince to hold the show, as he often does, on my Birthday (2nd of April) even though, due that whole different time zone thing, Australia gets the show on the 3rd.
Well gang, I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of anything else I feel like babbling on about. As I always say; just keep coming back and you'll be able to find out for yourselves. Or, if you have any questions, send me an email and I will answer as well as I can.
I'll leave ya to it. Fight the Power!
