Deals: Deals Jimmy! Black Friday/Cyber Monday guide
Keeping it simple and on a tight budget. I'll look back on the year and tell you, the games I'd be looking out for to get cheap during the biggest shopping weekend of the year. And a quick preview of the new releases.
Pretty sure Amazon is going to be blowing it out bigger and better than last year. Buy.com has recently had some good deals as well, but they beat you up on shipping. Toy R Us loves in store Buy 2 Get 1 Free. Target will have some great stuff in store as well. Can't wait to see what Kmart is planning. Gamestop? Whether you go in store or online, shop around first.
Before we get into the Black Friday stuff. Zelda Skyward Sword and WWE '12 will be releasing before the chaos of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
New Releases 11-22-2011
The Zelda comes out on Sunday and has 2 versions. 1 is just the game, but the other comes with a golden Wii-mote. Personally requested by FnJimmy.
Where are my wrestling fans at? Nevermind, I already know. None of you Jimmys watch the WWE on Gouki. Well we do. We love it and have always been big huge fans of the sports entertainment. This past year we recreated all the WWE PPV with Smackdown VS Raw 2011. With WWE '12 we're excited about what were going to be able to create this next year.
The People's Edition
The Rock included no matter where you pre-order. You gotta pre-order though. Amazon also includes a $10 credit. Bonus!
GameStop.com has an exclusive Miz t-shirt.
Black Friday/Cyber Monday Guide
First game that comes to mind is Dragon Age II. I loved this game and played through it 3 times. (114 hours of gameplay) So yeah, if you can find this game cheap, try it out.
Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom. Fun for the whole family or the competitive fighting gamer. Its going to be way cheaper than $40 during the Black Friday weekend. Pick it up.
Some of you are going to remove me after this one, but if didn't give Deus Ex Human Revolution a chance when it was released, look for it. (84 hours of gameplay) This game is fun -its a little whacked out- but I enjoyed it and played through multiple times.
Halo Wars? One of the best multiplayer games in the history of Xbox Live. Team Gouki has gone crazy over this game a couple of times through out the years. (471 hours of gameplay) Yeah, it'll be worth whatever price you can find it for. Join Team Gouki.
Portal 2 is another game from earlier in the year. If you missed this for whatever reason. Get it, Portal 2 is a unique FPS puzzle game and its a blast. There's also a great co-op experience here, so you should pick up 2 copies.
Mortal Kombat? lol. It's too bad that this game didn't go over better.
Batman Arkham City. Yes, yes. This should be able to find for less than $45 easy. This is one of the most well made video games of all time.
Skyrim. I can't put it down. I go to sleep late and wake up early to play. Total blast and I can't stop leveling up just seeing whatever I can do next. Amazing. This game is pretty early in release, but I still expect you should be able to find it for less than $50 easy.
**Gears of War 3 in the Gouki Shop now for $37.69. (2 Copies)**
So I'm stretchin' it now. Black Friday and Cyber Monday is also a great time to pick up some new peripherals, like controllers and headsets. I haven't come to a final decision on that new silver Xbox Controller with the switchable d-pad, but if it was cheap enough I'd buy another.
What's your game you're looking to steal during the Black Friday weekend? You're not a huge Bulletstorm fan are you? Something not on this list? Please share below. Vote and comment too. Don't be a Jimmy! Save that money nuab.
