Deal North: Cyber Monday gaming deals photo
Deal North: Cyber Monday gaming deals
by Dale North

You know what Cyber Monday is, right? It's the same crap from Black Friday, just a few days later. It's a second chance for many that missed the good stuff last week. It's the better of the two, as you won't get trampled.

You won't find anything mindblowingly different in our Cyber Monday deals, but there are some good finds if you missed last weekend's action. Have a look and see if there's something you'd like.

If nothing else, be sure to get the Sonic Everywhere Pack at Amazon, which contains a bunch of different Sonic games in one package. Even Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine is included! And if you need a 3DS XL, get the new Mario and Luigi: Dream Team bundle at Walmart and Best Buy now.

Best Buy sale drops Paper Mario: Sticker Star to $7.99

Jonathan Holmes quite liked Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Chris Carter tells me it got a bad rap. I'm a huge fan of the original game on N64 and The Thousand-Year Door, but the differences found in this 3DS installment put me...

[Update: Canadian locations have been added.]

We recently told you that Nintendo plans to bring select E3 game reveals to Best Buy locations across North America. That's right: you'll be able to check out some of the Wii U games we're seeing at E3 at your local Best Buy. Pretty neat, right?

These games will be open for play from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday June 12, and from 1-5 p.m. on June 15. 

There's word of something called "Luigi loot" for those that visit. Whatever that is, I want some. 

You'll find the full list of stores below.
