Black Friday 2012: The 40 best deals

10:00 AM on 11.23.2012 // Allistair Pinsof
  @DtoidAllistair

What are you buying, stranger?

The only thing more American than eating so much that you can't get up from the couch is waiting in line to buy a bunch of dumb stuff you don't need. Hey, don't look at me like that. I'm no judge! I just want to persuade as many possible shoppers to stay at home so I can nab one of those $15 Forza Horizon's for myself.

I trawled the deepest, darkest crevices of the internet to bring 40 awesome deals to light. Though I did not do the maths, I'm pretty sure you will save 5,000% on these deals and feel .05% better about your life as a consumer whore.

Finally getting around to cataloging all the intergalactic-level augments I want to use for post-game Tyrant killing in XCX. The grind feels more substantial than Monster Hunter but then again there are no four-story-high monsters in MH.

Your waifu is poop. The Ultimate Waifu agrees.

So due to things at my job picking up and bunch of real life stuff, I don't think I'll be able to give my Waifu Wars blog the love and attention it needs. Still, I don't think I need to remind you guys who best waifu is, but just in case you forgot.

For the next Assassin's Creed, they should completely overhaul the gameplay and base it on the latest Splinter Cells. Stealth, climbing and action would all be massively improved that way.

When does Undertale get "Interesting"? Played for 2-3 hours, having fun, but failing to see what it does that's so utterly amazing.
