A few things and a lot of sales to mark this Christmas week

So you had to bow out of the Feats of Strength due to injury, and aired the wrong grievance. And you have to work today. Your holiday is banging.


Anything new and interesting this week, or is everyone too busy putting their games on sale?

Seems like everything is coming out either today or on Christmas Day itself. Sadly, the Dynasty Warriors game that lets you kill everyone who POed you doesn't come out until two days after. Limited Run is publishing something called Revenge of the Bird King, so that should be up for physical purchase in the New Year. Other than that, Europe's got twice the lineup of North America.

Japan's big one is next week, how are they looking?

They've got Diablo III and Dynasty Warriors, they'll be just fine for New Year's and the biggest week of Switch sales until this time next year.

And I think you're contractually obligated to throw in something sappy here.

*sigh* Christmas. It's not the giving, it's not the getting, it's the loving. (There, I said it. Now get outta here.) On behalf of the NWR family, enjoy whatever you're celebrating this week and we'll see you to kick off 2019 in seven days.
