With Black Friday becoming a multi-week long event these days, it offers so much more flexibility on where to go and a larger variety of things to grab without being smooshed into a single day. With so many deals going on, it's hard to not find something you want to grab at a good value. What are you planning on grabbing or what have you already gotten?

Not much for me. No games are high enough wants for me to grab any of them but I did bite the bullet on an SSD for my PS5, and some JBL true wireless earbuds for work. What about all y'all?

I just ordered FE:TH from Amazon, and bought Sonic Colors Ultimate a few days ago. Also took advantage of the Buy 2, get 1 free deal twice from GameStop.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania
Fire Emblem
Paper Mario
Super Epic
Resident Evil Village
Deathloop
Mario Kart Live Home Circuit Luigi Set

Probably wouldn't have bought as much, had I not taken advantage of the 50% extra trade-in promotion, and had plenty of credit.

Snagged a Stadia controller and the newest, still like 5 years old Chromecast for $22. That'll likely be it, though my wife still owes me a birthday present from last month, but I'm not really in the mood after our oldest cat passed on... Crummy feeling about that all.

As far as gaming, I grabbed these up so far;

Collection of Mana (Switch)
Sakura Wars (PS4)
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (PS4)
Madden 2022 (PS4)
Hades (PS5)
Doki Doki Literature Club (PS5)


Considering:
Bravely Default II - but despite my excitement, I didn't really find the first one too exciting.
Mario Kart Luigi Circuit - my kids might like it, but I'm betting it loses its charm quick.
Alan Wake Remaster

My son accidentally threw a Wiimote into the tv (in 2021 this still happens apparently) which killed it this weekend so I just ordered a new tv. But on a positive note, that tv served admirably for about 10 years.

I changed my mind and decided to buy Balan Wonderworld from Gamestop. I'm probably going to regret it but I have some morbid curiosity.

It's a trip back in time.

It just feels so much like a late 90s game. It's quite an achievement

I was debating buying a new TV this year too but decided to hold off. Maybe next year an OLED will be on sale for a price I can justify

Breaking a TV by accidentally throwing a Wiimote at it seems okay somehow. Maybe even a little admirable. But maybe that's just my inner gamer talking.

Regarding the Wii, this makes me wonder if maybe, just maybe, Nintendo made a deal with TV companies back when they were designing the Wii. "We'll design a product that will potentially cause customers to need to replace their TVs." Probably not, but just a thought.

I use one at work, a more expensive one. My favorite thing about it is if you know any CAD package (computer aided design, 3d modeling on a computer), you can have an idea, "draw" it on a computer, and have it printed in very short order. Like less than an hour from design to printed for something small. I've had prints go over 20 hours as well.

If CAD isn't in your wheelhouse, there are websites like the one below that have thousands (millions?) of models you can download and print for free.

https://www.thingiverse.com/

My first planned big project is to print a Pokémon chess set for my kid (if still interested). There are a few to choose from, but I'll see what he wants to do. I know the one I got is something you have to tinker with, more a hobby than anything.

NEO: TWEWY (PS4) is $30 at various retailers:

https://www.dekudeals.com/items/neo-the-world-ends...

I managed to get it on Switch from Amazon at that price, but that one didn't last long. Also SMT V Launch Edition is $50 at Amazon and Walmart:

Looks like the Premium Edition is currently available on Amazon too.

Edit: Switch version of NEO is $30 again as of this edit.

Well, went to put in another order at GameStop this morning (lol), and for my trouble I've got two $65 pending charges and no actual orders submitted because "There may be lots of people putting in orders. Please try again later!"

Good black friday :D

Yeah several packages from GameStop today delivered to the wrong address by FedEx. Just a straight up FedEx screw up. I have a few more orders coming, and I called Gamestop to tell them. They're supposed to send replacements but who knows. Gonna give it to next week before I call my bank. FedEx said they would investigate but it would take 7-14 business days lol. Instead of, you know, calling the driver right after it said he delivered it.

At least I didn't order my SS gift from there lol.

Welp, ring doorbell finally died after 5 years, today.

They gave me a 35% coupon to buy new. I also get $25 discount by being a subscriber. Decided to add 4 indoor cameras and floodlight... That coupon worked on everything, on top of black friday discounts.

A $689 cart turned into $403, quite the deal!

Meh, I picked up Deathloop (PS5). Was going to wait for it to show on GP but I think the best place to play this gamw will be on the PS5 with the haptic feedback. Also picked up GTA 5 Premium to get ready for the eventual PS5 upgrade.

I think the PS5 version of GTA V won't be a free upgrade from what I've read...as I've been holding on it as well (though I have it digitally on PS3).

Oh crap, I completely misunderstood that lol. Yeah looks like the base game will be a paid upgrade on both consoles but it's GTA online that will be free for ps+ users for 3 months then go paid if you want the upgrade.

I picked up:

Sakuna Divine Edition from the xseed store (I hope...a week and it hasn't shipped).
Re-bought 13 Sentinels because for whatever reason I miss the battles.
Guardians of the Galaxy with Walmart Exclusive steelbook only they didn't give me the steelbook
It Takes Two
Maybe possibly a PS5 from Walmart if it leaves the "placed" order status.

The $100 off a ten bottle order of proofsyrup was definitely worth it! If you enjoy old fashioneds, you need to check them out. Have probably gone through a solid 30 bottles over the last few years.

Also, Carolihas 35% off was definitely utilized favorably. Their stuff is amazing.

Would be nice to just do away with the whole idea of a "Holiday Shopping Season" to be honest.

A few years ago, stores started opening ad midnight Thursday night into Friday morning, then on Thursday itself, now it starts a couple weeks before Thanksgiving? Can't wait for a few years when Black Friday is back on the Friday after Thanksgiving again, except it's the start of the NEXT year's holiday shopping season. Buy now for 2022's hot Christmas gifts!

Just have decent prices year round and people won't feel the need to spend thousands of dollars on a designated weekend just because it's a designated weekend and people think they're getting the best deals.

None of it makes any sense except Boxing Day.

It might feel pointless to us but I doubt it's going anywhere. Black Friday is just a US thing, but lots of other countries do Cyber Monday too.

I wasn't planning on it buying anything but Gamestop b1g1 on Xbox Series Ss, the 50% off offer when coming with $100 in cash back making it free, the free pops and the free Google Home pulled me in.

You're gonna like 13 Sentinels on the go with the switch version.

Might end up going that route eventually, but I'd have to splurge on the split pad pro to actually be able to play it handheld.
