UK chart: fa-la-la-la-laa la Black Ops 2

Paper Mario Sticker Star scrapes in.

It's December and the charts are frozen solid; it's still Black Ops 2 on top, Far Cry 3 second and FIFA third.

And I knew as soon as I saw this that I must share it.

The Wii U hardly seems to be the pickaxe to crack that formation as the console's best-selling and bundled first-party game Nintendo Land dropped from 11th to 26th.

Just Dance 4 shimmied up to fourth, Assassin's Creed 3 held fifth and Hitman: Absolution dipped to sixth.

Halo 4 rose to seventh, Need for Speed: Most Wanted rose to eighth and Lego Gandalf and Pals dropped to ninth. Oily Wrestlers '13 rounded the chart out in 10th.

New releases? You'll be lucky. The only faint beep on the new release radar was 3DS game Paper Mario Sticker Star, way down in 40th.

If only Christmas trees were a game - they'd Spruce things up amirite? Fir the love of god! Oh you're pining for more, I can tell.
