It's almost the end of 2019, which means game releases are really starting to slow down. In fact, this week only has three notable releases, including the long-awaited return of a beloved creator and a game where you harass nice folk as a goose. Again it's a quiet week, the perfect time to work through that backlog.
Anyway, if you're wondering what games are dropping this week that are worth taking a quick peep at, well you've come to the right saloon partner, because that's what this post has: a rundown of the all the salient new games releasing into the wild this week. As always, it's important to keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list of new releases. Further, in addition to the prominent new releases, there's a round-up of ports at the bottom. As for remakes and remasters, they are included, as are meaty expansions, but minor DLC releases are not nor are games releasing into early access. Lastly, sometimes mobile games are included if they are super duper noteworthy, but for the most part these are console, PC, and Google Stadia games we are dealing with.
