To get you in the spirit of the occasion, T1 have collated a definitive list of the greatest winter gaming environments of all time, and guarantee you'll want to play them after reading the 13-1 countdown! And before you ask - yes, James Pond makes an appearance!

While taking a break from ogling Frosty's snowballs (err..), Thirteen1 caught wind of swashbuckling MMORPG Bounty Bay Online's latest expansion, which set sail this month.“Beyond the Horizon” promises loads of new areas and content to explore, so they sent the infamous Drunken Gamer on a tour to check it all out. He even shot and narrated a few videos for you! Be warned though, he may have had a couple of tipples before pressing the record button...

Cool new publishers Iceberg are working with legendary game writer Jonathan Boakes on the upcoming, much-anticipated third instalment in the Dark Fall series– Dark Fall III: Lost Souls– due out in January. Thirteen1 decided it was time to talk to Mr Boakes himself and ask about all things ghost-hunting...this spooky interview is well worth checking out.

Speaking of interviews, Thirteen1 stayed true to their word and sent all of your awesome questions over to the team behind The Secret World. It's about time gamers got some answers on FunCom's secretive MMO, and you know you want to see what they have to say...

It's not all about the big, flashy MMORPG's though, and with the free2play browser-based market still booming, T1 thought it was time to check out Heroes of Gaia, the new big game on the bloc that is about as beautiful to play as it is to look at. Don't believe us? Check out the review, apologise, and try it for yourself.

If medieval madness is more your thing, you need to jump straight to the in-depth review of top BBG MedievalWars– a feudal free2play experience with great gameplay, nice artwork and an extra emphasis on troops and battles!

Still, no matter the time of year, and no matter the type of game, zombies are always welcome in Thirteen1. There's just something about mowing down a horde of the undead that appeals all year round. Zombie Driver, Exor Studios' brand new release, is an insane mix of cars, speed, explosions, blood and of course– Zombies. Sounded good, so T1 thought they'd get behind the wheel and see how it plays. If you like any of the above, you're going to want to read this review.

Enjoy the issue, see you in 2010!
