This week doesn't feature Warren G, Nate Dogg, Dr. Metts or Jon "The Conduit is an 8.5" Lindemann. But it should.

(Recommended background music)

And so the month from heaven and/or hell begins.

Uh huh. Of games I know I'd play this week we have the Final Fantasy VIII remake, River City Girls, and Root Letter... and that's without having a review game, Astral Chains, or the Black Eagles to deal with right now. The best seller out of the bunch will be future lootbox legislation lynchpin NBA 2K20, however.

This only narrows it down to about 200 fighting game veterans and the Metal Slug dudes.

A copyright slipup from Nintendo of Europe appears to have nailed down the publisher of the Smash Bros character to follow Banjo and Kazooie.

Freelance writer and Source Gaming founder @PushDustin first located a page on Nintendo's European website, which lists the copyright of the character as SNK. For comparison, the same page for Hero lists their copyright as Armor Project, Bird Studio, and SquareEnix.
