Welcome, and happy New Year! 2019 is juddering to a halt and you know what? I’m glad it’s gone. Let’s gird our loins and strap in for 2020.

Many places are closed this week and the janitors are in charge. We’re still knee-deep in the end-of-year sales and the mindset of sniffing out bargains instead of the latest hotness. The consoles have basically packed up the new release tent for the year, leaving just a bunch of straggling, niche, indie PC releases.

There’s much more value in the sales than the new releases this week, or maybe just catching up on your Pile. I’m personally using this week to soak in the melancholic wonder of Disco Elysium and can’t see anything in this list coming close to dragging me out.

SUGGESTION: Some people like these quirky indie games, you should mention at least one, or they’ll feel robbed.

ELECTROCHEMISTRY: Who cares? Those guys are clowns!

COMPOSURE: Careful, you’re losing them. Finish off strong. It’s the last The Week Ahead for the year.
