And, because it’s the weekend, go find yourself something to play!
Around the Gaming Horn
One more round of news we missed for the road!
Something to look forward to next year: Fortnite Festival is getting guitar controller support.
The Winter Wonderland event is coming to Overwatch 2.
WrestleQuest has dropped its biggest update so far.
The Finals has dropped its first major patch.
And don’t forget Frostivus for the rest of us in Dota 2!

A tribute to one gutsy streamer
I’ll be out on vacation by the time that Geek hangs up her controller and retires from streaming. She’s been one of my favorite streamers for the past couple of years, entertaining me through tough times going back to the pandemic. She will be sorely, sorely missed, but congratulations to her and we wish her the best as she moves on to the next chapter of her life.
We leave you with one of Geek’s finest moments. This happened last year when CarlSagan42 sent her the Twelve Days of Geeksmas and it’s arguably Geek at her very best. We encourage you to browse her YouTube channel for even more Mario Maker hilarity.
So long, Geek, and thanks for all the feesh!
One man band
Pedro Eustache, the Flute Guy, is here for an encore.
This is one puzzle that Professor Layton doesn’t want solved.
Man, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney sure would be an awesome game to play through again. We made sure to note that in our recent Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy interview.
Now that’s some fan service!
Nothing but the Hotfix
In the spirit of the holidays, let’s look back at a pair of seasonal Christmas games.
GDQ’s Hotfix shows air every week and you can catch them all at the Games Done Quick Twitch account.
Under the learning tree with Masahiro Sakurai
Masahiro Sakurai started a YouTube channel! Let’s learn from his decades of experience together by looking at one of his latest videos. This week, Sakurai discusses in-team collaboration in game design.
This week in Ernienews
While we’re normally happy to have some Shaqnews send us off, we just had to join the chorus in honoring the Hall of Fame career of Ernie Johnson.
IT’S STILL REAL TO ME, DAMMIT!
Sending best wishes to one of the greatest to ever do it.
Tonight in video game music
FamilyJules, send us off into the new year with this cover of One Winged Angel!
