Alrighty, first off, I'm terribly sorry for not posting this sooner, but I was really hoping it was just a fluke, and then I wasn't sure if I even wanted to share anything about it because the last thing I want to read when looking for video game reviews is someone complaining about health problems, but I've come to the conclusion that I can't just leave all of our wonderful readers out there in the dark any longer. 

At the moment, Cabdog, the only other writer that I have for The App Shack, has a broken finger and has just had surgery. I won't go into everything, but needless to say, he's been out of commission for the last couple of months, and might be for the next couple of following months as well. 

During this time, I've developed some severe headaches. I am seeing a Dr., and hope to have all of this sorted out ASAP, but it's been so bad that I can barely stand to be at the computer for more than a couple of minutes. 

But that's why there's been nothing new posted up on the site as of late. I was hoping that it would sort of just blow over, but it hasn't yet. 

I will say that I will do my best to be back with a bang in mid to late December. I am still hoping to have a big promo code giveaway and (hopefully) come back with quite a few reviews. In the meantime, feel free to go through our back catalog of reviews, maybe find out some hidden gems you could have missed out on, or stare at the cute little blue sadface I've posted above, but please don't loose hope or give up on TAS just yet. We'll be back as soon as possible with more reviews of great iOS games, and can't wait for the gaming to come in 2013!! With the new iPad 4, iPhone/iPod 5, and iPad Mini and all of their fantastic new processing powers, it's looking VERY promising, as I'm sure you all know. 

We hope you're having some great fun with the recent new games, and are all enjoying the holiday season as of yet. Be safe, and don't forget to check back in the middle of December to see what's up! =oD

Thanks for sticking this out with us.
