We never thought we’d say this, but it seems a bit late for the Black Friday circulars to JUST NOW be coming out. In previous years these sheets have leaked before Halloween hit. The reason is, Black Friday itself is late as well — Thanksgiving doesn’t occur until the 28th this year. Here’s what everyone’s offering…
The big front-page deal for Target is a Nintendo Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe pre-installed for $299.99. This is the exact same deal Target offered last year. Ordinarily prices tend to go….down over time, but this is Nintendo we’re dealing with. Maybe next year it’ll be $350.
A PS4 (not Pro) will be available for $199.99 and it’ll include three games: Last Of Us Remastered, God Of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn. If you don’t have a PS4 or any of those games, that’s a tremendous deal. The XBox One X, with Gears 5 and a $40 gift card, is $349.99. The Switch Lite is the exact same price as MSRP.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is $45…crazy for a demanded game that just came out. Gears 5, Borderlands 3, Need For Speed Heat and Monster Hunter World are $35. Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Red Dead Redemption 2, Catherine: Full Body, Mario Tennis Aces, Dragon Quest Builders 2, Judgment and Fallout 76 are $30. Control, Spyro, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, Switch Overwatch, and NASCAR Heat 4 are $25. And for a mere $15 you can get Crash Trilogy, CTR: Nitro-Fueled, Aladdin & Lion King Remastered, Team Sonic Racing, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Killer Queen Black, World War Z, and Overcooked 2.
You can also get $20 off Joy-Cons, PS4 and XBox One controllers for $40, and the Pac-Man and Marvel Arcade 1-Ups for $249. All in all, not bad. We’ll see what Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Amazon do to counter this.
Now let’s get to the actual games. There will be plenty to keep Switch players busy through the remainder of the year, and some excellent stuff is now confirmed for 2022. Like a fully 3D Kirby, Splatoon 3 and the finally confirmed release window for Bayonetta 3! Castlevania Advance Collection
There are usually potion shops in RPGs where you can buy bottled spells for both offensive and defensive purposes, but what’s it like on the other end of the counter? In the new game Potion Craft from publisher tinyBuild and developer NicePlay, you can take up the practice of magic
World War Z is coming back…kind of. It’s largely the same game, but it’s headed to a new platform (Nintendo Switch) with the Deluxe Edition that will contain all the content previously released on PS4 and XBox One. So finally, Switch can stand equally with its contemporaries, right? I hope
Passing the Turing Test is the ultimate goal of robot builders: that is, creating an AI so advanced that an actual human cannot tell the difference. But what if, as a consequence, you could be a robot and not realize it? That’s the question indie developers Metagalaxy Panda are dramatizing
