New This Week in Video Games (12/14 – 12/20)

by Dean James

Over the last few weeks, we have seen fewer and fewer major new releases, as most of them came out in October or November. With the last full week prior to Christmas, the list gets even smaller, though we do actually have one physical release this week.

Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is our one retail release this week for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, while the free-to-play Loadout comes exclusively to PlayStation 4 after a prior PC release. There are a few old Metal Gear Solid related releases, as Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots finally goes digital on Tuesday in a release on PlayStation 3, while Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes finally hits PC through Steam on Thursday.

The rest of the week is made up of a few small digital releases for Wii U, 3DS, and PC, with the latter getting a few new DLC updates for games like Tropico 5. Next week is bound to have even less releases, so feel free to get that Christmas shopping done now if you wish.
