Many sales ended to clear the track for a quick photographer.

The first week of the new year brings a light week to yon eShops. Both shops split the difference with Spheroids, another in the trend of Pang clones recently inagurated by Pirate Pop Plus, while North America gets a pre-Christmas zombie game from Europe in the person of Zombie Brigade: No Brain No Gain. Or you can preload one of last decade's best RPGs in the person of Dragon Quest VIII.

We've previously discussed the brisk pace of this week's Virtual Console release, as I recall beating Pokémon Snap inside of an hour back on the N64. Still, Miiverse allows for public sharing of that sweet exploded Electrode if that floats your Lapras.

Euroe has Spheroids, but its biggest deal might be something getting a tad cheaper: SteamWorld Heist has copped a permanent price drop for both the 3DS and Wii U versions. It's now even easier to get a hold of one of 2015's best and one of 2016's best re-releases.
