Call of Duty Is Doing World War 2, Oh Look a New Nintendo 2DS, and the Rest of This Week's Headlines

ENDING CREDITS | Taking a look a back at this week's headlines and everything else you might have missed on USgamer.

Whew, another week done. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm ready to ball it up, drop-kick it down the street, and watch it roll down into the gutter.

The biggest piece of news was probably the recently-revealed New Nintendo 2DS XL. It's sleek, it's compact, it has the processing power of the New Nintendo 3DS, and it's 2D. I pointed out that if this is indeed the Nintendo 3DS's final SKU, we can assume the Nintendo 3DS's 3D projection gimmick was ultimately a flop.

Star Wars: Battlefront II Is Coming, the SNES Classic Is Coming (Maybe), and the Rest of This Week's Headlines

Some of you already disagree with me. Feel free to rage in the comments! I'll read them over a nice mug of hot chocolate with a sizable shot of Fireball whisky.

Here are the other important headlines and features we published this week.

And we're done. Thanks for joining us for another week. Let's wrap things up with the ending music for Super Mario Bros 2, which is good stuff. That animated image of Mario sleeping during the credits roll was pretty impressive back in the day – and I still think it's cute.

Kudos to the player for splitting all the stages evenly across Mario, Luigi, Princess, and Toad. I'm an "all Luigi all the time" gal, though I don't mind giving Toad a fair shake when it's time to dig in those damnable desert levels. Once he's done with that, though, he goes back behind the Player Select curtain.

Have a good one.
