For the curious, we're going into March like a lion. A big, hurty, lion.

I thought this thing was supposed to cover a lot of Thursday releases. We could have delayed it until tomorrow.

Thursday has a plurality, but not a majority like most weeks. There's even the dreaded Saturday release. Things I'm watching for: Trials Rising (which has a review up now), Treasure Stack, and Toe Jam & Earl as another one of those games I played at PAX East a couple of years ago.

Apparently the #1 game in the country came out under the Devolver Digital "Earliest Access" program.

Nintendo started off 2019 with some strong hardware numbers and a solid performance in software, though not enough to overcome hordes in that department.

All sales figures are US only, from January 6 - February 2, and are dollar-based unless otherwise indicated.
