Year in Review

If you missed any of the fantastic releases we had had this year fear not as our editors have put together a list of all the featured releases for each quarter of the year.


It's all about the art!

Last year event theme was created by a talented young buck and 2012 is no different. Wally is back and has never looked better with his new pals Connie the controller and Mobie the Mobile (we are very original here in the DesuraNET offices). Find out who gave life to our mascots with the 2012 Artist Biography. Unveiled December 9th.

The voting appears to be open, despite the fact it's only November 30th. Is this intentional?

I'm wondering, is this current voting phase for the top 100, or only to make it to the top 100 phase? I'm a little confused.

Nominations. The top 100 will be...the top 100. Phase 2 is a competition between the top 100 for the various awards.

I really like the mascot for the contest. The colours are well-choosen. The designer did a great job with it!
