Looks like the Yes Movement will need to take a step back for this.

After making an anthill, Thunderful has announced their next Switch project which will probably have a negative reaction.

Thunderful will publish German firm Studio Fizbin's Say No! More in 2020. A single player adventure game, Say No! More features a created avatar trying to survive by saying "No" in a world in which turning things down is a lost art.

"Andrew Jackson, in the foyer of the White House, had a big block of cheese..."

Man, this is a tough one to come up with the big game of the week.

There's actually three possibilities this time: The Touryst, from the absolute madlads at Shin'en, the action RPG Children of Morta, and the latest Netflix-themed game from Curve, Narcos.

But it's pretty quiet otherwise, isn't it?

After seeing #7 in the software charts, the News Editor needs a little bit of the bubbly.

The industry as a whole had a major letdown compared to last October according to the latest results from the NPD Group, but Nintendo keeps on rolling along.

Unless noted, all figures are based on dollar sales in the reporting period of October 6 to November 2.

For the tenth month in a row, the Switch was the best selling console in the United States, though a revenue split between the Switch Lite and the Switch was not available.

Happy Article 809 week!

Well, it is the big game of the week... hell, aren't you buying Sword AND Shield?

Yes, and I can't deny that it's mostly out of spite. But also a need to grab hold of all three starters without involving the rest of you lot.

Anything else catch your eye this week?

Starting tomorrow, Mario Kart Tour’s next event heads to France.

Would you trust a Shy Guy to make you a meal? What if he was riding a go-kart in Paris? No? Me neither. That’s why I’ve decided that the only way this chef-hatted Shy Guy, coming to the next two-week tour in Mario Kart Tour, has to be controlled by some sort of cooking-savant creature.
