The holiday sales continue their slow trot around the home stretch, with PlayStation's Holiday Sale crawling to the finish line. Many of those games are on sale, but there are a handful of games from a few weeks ago that are not. So catch whatever's still out there. Meanwhile, Xbox One owners will get a chance to pick up Halo 5, along with a handful of indie games.

But this is a good weekend to help bolster your handheld library. Nintendo is offering a handful of discounts on a number of first and third-party Nintendo 3DS games. Games like Super Mario Maker, Yoshi's Woolly World, and the Professor Layton franchise are there, so maybe give this a look, in case you're planning on traveling soon.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
