Man, what a crazy week! Food, family, presents, Christmas movies, coffee, hot chocolate and egg nog! Not to mention lots of great gaming with the family! Here in my household we have been playing Overcooked 2 together and in between I’ve been getting in rounds of Smash Ultimate, Starlink, Dead Cells, and Civilization 6! I don’t think I have any room for any more new games at the moment. Here is the official PR for this week’s North American eShop downloads (perhaps I will eventually have time to play some of them!):
