Happy Black Friday, everybody! Since we just moved past Thanksgiving, we're focusing this week on the last thing you probably want to think about right now: more food, this time in the form of our favorite food-themed levels. Joining us once again is PCWorld Reviews Editor Alaina Yee, who also brought a ton of Black Friday deals to this week's game-deals segment, and we also touch on Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, which console won the fall sales race, and your favorite Wii U games.

The Wii U turns 5 this week, about a year after Nintendo first moved to pull the plug on its short-lived system. Oh, but what a short life it was! To celebrate it, we're joined once again by Bob Mackey as we count down a list of our five favorite Wii U games. Then, we talk about Star Wars Battlefront 2, the mysterious reappearance of L.A. Noire, loot boxes, Ninja Turtles in Injustice 2, and the games in which you'd love to create a character.

With Sonic Forces fulfilling countless [Your Name] the Hedgehog fantasies with its character creator this week, erstwhile host Henry Gilbert helps us focus our Top 5 on five other games that let you squeeze a version of yourself into an established universe and battle alongside - or against - its heroes. Then it's time to shift gears and talk about Call of Duty: WWII, Sonic Forces, Horizon: Zero Dawn - The Frozen Wilds, the Xbox One X launch, Sony's Trophy-based discounts, awful Bubsy puns, and the forgotten mascots you'd drag back from oblivion.

Microsoft ended production of Kinect last week, dealing a final blow to the ill-fated camera peripheral, so we're dedicating today's Top 5 to a look back at five of its best games, with help from PCWorld Reviews Editor Alaina Yee. We then tear into a long list of new releases including Super Mario Odyssey, Assassin's Creed Origins, Wolfenstein II, Dead Hungry, and Bubsy (which sharp-eared listeners can win a code for), after which we look at Sony's Paris Games Week and the video game characters you'd dress as for Halloween.
