December 24 - December 28

Merry Pagan Winter Festival Eve! As we prepare to lay 2012 finally and firmly to rest, with all its Mayans, candidates and Super-Storms, tonight you should try to rest easy with visions of sugar plums dancing Gangnam Style in your head.

While you may have upwards of 99 problems, buying a new release game this week probably isn't one. I'm just going to go ahead and throw this week's release list up here above the fold.

3DS
- Fluidity: Spin Cycle (eShop)
- Johnny Impossible (eShop)
- Mahjong 3D: Warriors of the Emperor (eShop)

DS
- Goooooal América (DSiWare)
- Jump Trials Extreme (DSiware)
- Wizard Defenders (DSiWare)

Yup, that's it.

It should be no surprise then that I have no Game of the Week this week to offer you. Myself, I've been diving back in to Torchlight 2 to finally complete, and then I am planning a date to go back and finish Dishonored and XCom. I'm hoping to get a few of these games off my pile before Sim City and BioShock Infinite come to take over my life.

Slim pickings, thankfully!

Clearly the Steam winter sale, specifically the gifting of games, is the "game" of the week.

Merry Chrismahanukwanzakah!

Munch's Oddysee HD was released this week for PSN.

Good pick. I still have ye olde Xbox disc around. Loved the game, though it wasn't quite as spot-on as the previous two games in the Oddworld Universe it doesn't even compare to the greatness of Stranger's Wrath.

Stranger's Wrath was released last week on PSN. You can get it on Vita, which is kind of cool.

How do you feel about some of the Sim City decisions? Specifically, no offline play and no local saved games?

I am really excited about the game but these things give me pause on whether I really want to drop the money on it. Also, no subways??
