It's easy to be swept up in a tumult of emotions as the year draws to a close.

On one hand, you're looking forward to the holidays and all the mirth, warmth, merriment, and consumerist glee that they entail (and good luck to those running UA campaigns during this crowded season).

On the other, it's also tempting to look back at the previous 12 months and wish that you had done more with them.

But whether you scored a huge $1.5 billion sale or had modest success with an indie launch, it's important to celebrate your successes and use them as jumping off points for the year ahead rather than ruminate on things that might have been.

So with that advice in mind, go grab a glass of egg nog, crank up the Christmas carols, and let us walk you through the PocketGamer.biz week that was.
