It is hard to believe, but we’re already through most of twenty-twelve. It’s the year we had such ridiculous theories as the end of the world (although, it could still happen), the first jump from the edge of space at more than 120,000 feet, and the continuing success of Justin Bieber.
We’ve had an incredible year so far in gaming, music, and movies, and before we get into the craziness of the end of the year that brings us Halo 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Assassin’s Creed III, Skyfall, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, a new Nintendo console, and probably a smaller iPad, we wanted to recount just how great of a year we had so far with our list of the top stories of 2012 so far.
And for the record, these posts make up less than 10% of our total posts for the year so far, as we’re coming off our biggest posting year yet, on track to blow the 200 post mark out of the water!
