This Week’s Windows Phone Charts: Oh How I’ve Missed You, Ilomilo

One of the warmest, most wonderful games I’ve played shows up on this week’s Windows Phone charts, granting me a comforting nostalgic rush and hopefully distracting all of you from noticing I didn’t do the Windows Phone charts last week.

Look at how cute those two little guys are. Just look at them.

I had every intention of getting up on Thanksgiving morning and banging out the week’s Windows Phone charts, but then I woke up on Thanksgiving morning and realised that I’d rather glaze ham. I’d say 90 per cent of the time that phrase applies to my life — I’d rather glaze ham. Thanksgiving Day is one of the few times I can act on it. If it helps, the ham was delicious.

So, when you look at this week’s charts and see ‘Last Week’s Position’, what it really means is the week before last’s position. With that in mind, we dive.
