Welcome, and happy holidays! I wish you all the best, however and whatever you’re celebrating this week.

As for games, this week feels like the post-credits scene from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: the year’s over, go home! Does anyone still get references to Ferris Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?

The release schedule has finally run out of puff for 2019. You know it’s a quiet week when the biggest cross-platform release is an indie Doom clone called Demon Pit. There aren’t even any PS4 games coming out this week.

The Japanese-developed XBox exclusive, Natsuki Chronicles, finally drops in Asian markets on Christmas day, after being delayed 5 times since its announcement in 2014. It’s a side-scrolling shmup that looks like most of the other shmups.

It’s really all about the sales right now. But if you must get a new release this week, I recommend Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order - Expansion 2: Rise of the Phoenix. It adds new missions, a Danger Room mode, and puts Phoenix, Iceman, Gambit, and Cable on the roster. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is an enjoyable, button-mashin’, co-op brawler, and this DLC gives you more of that, so GOTW.

Here's the list, now in release-date order!

I hope everyone has a good holiday! Thanks to the folks who put in the time to do this every week, especially a week like this one where there's nada of note.

That still seems like a lot.
