Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Sells Crazy Fast, Morrowind Turns 15, 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.

Well, that's another week done. What are your plans for the weekend? If you said "More Breath of the Wild and more Persona 5," congratulations, your weekend stands to mirror my own.

We're in a bit of a news lull, but that didn't keep us from publishing lots of cool stuff this week. Our number-one priority here at USgamer is to thrill and entertain you.

Honest.

Is this the face of somebody who's insincere?

Here are this week's most notable headlines and features:

Thank you for joining us for another week. I'm feeling inspired by the "Mega Man 2 vs Mario 3" Twitter war, so I'll choose my ending music sample accordingly.

"So which will it be, Nadia? The melancholy credit roll from Mega Man 2, or the upbeat calypso-inspired ending sequence for Super Mario Bros 3?"

Why, the ending music for Castlevania III, of course.
