Turns out that yours truly may have been hitting the eggnog a little too hard, as this week's PAL Virtual Console release update actually appeared back on Tuesday (a.k.a Christmas Day), rather than the usual Friday. Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! is the sole title to appear on the final PAL VC update of the year, but it's a worthwhile addition, nonetheless, and superior to the second game in the trilogy to which it belongs, even if it does lack a playable Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong. Put it this way - we could have received worse things for Christmas.
