Well went into Black Friday with no intention of buying anything and ended up with this.

Posted Image

Didn't think I'd find most of this as I ended up not going to Walmart until 12am way after the 8pm doorbusters but got everything I wanted.

PS3 Superslim Bundle - $199
Gran Turismo 5 XL - $10
Battlefield 3 - $25
Borderlands 2 - $25
Twisted Metal - $25

Then tonight I also managed to get the Sly Cooper and Jak and Daxter Collections off of Walmart.com for $10 and $15 respectively. Overall I'm out a little over $300 and quite thrilled that I am back into the PS3 after selling it all of a while back.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

This showed up on Thursday! :D

Spoiler


Since I have PlayStation Plus and recently got a Vita, I was also able to get the following:

-Uncharted: Golden Abyss
-Gravity Rush
-WipEout 2048
-Jet Set Radio
-Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack
-Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of Lions

I already have the original FFT and the UMD version of the remake, but having a digital version I can play on my Vita is a big bonus. :)

My most favorite pick up here is the I AM Film/Concert, mainly because I like KPOP and am a huge SNSD Fan. The two cases besides I AM are Korean Dramas, My Lovely Sam-soon and Summer Scent, a gift from my Aunt after she found out I like them. Finally got in on Big Bang Theory, absolutely one of my favorite shows of all time. Bought most of them at Best Buy, they didn't have S4 so I got that Wal Mart for 2 dollars more. :T
Posted Image
Blu Ray Madness! Finally bought a Blu Ray Player for the House, :lol:. The PS3 Player is mine alone! Haha. Sadly, didn't go to Wal Mart to get in on their Blu Ray deals. Wasn't my fault though; everything was totally a hell hole over there.

More Blu Rays!

Happy to get Dishonored at BB, didn't know the price drop, so it was a pleasant surprise. Was supposed to go to Wal Mart after the BB Midnight Opening but the line was too damn long. In my sadness, I went to Gamestop and took part in their B2G1 Deal. I would've got more expensive titles but I'm on a budget here. Went back to a different Wal Mart in the afternoon, and like I said before, it was a hellhole. But after maybe an hour of searching, I managed to scrounge a few titles by looking in those carts all over the place. The stuff I missed from Wal Mart, I managed to get on Amazon, even though I missed out on their lightening deals. All in all, it was a good Black Friday, mainly because the previous years were for others and were barely for me. :lol:

There are a couple items not shown, mainly because my Dad already threw out their boxes. I was practically in the front of the line for Best Buy due to my yearly urban camping with my cousin. And I managed to pick up a 50 inch LED, 40 inch LCD Toshiba HD TV, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, a 15'6 Lenovo Laptop, and a Blu Ray Player.

Complete List/Prices/Places Bought Below

I wish being on a budget could look like that for me...

Looks like your cat (or at least I think it's your cat, otherwise it's some sort of phantom monster) is commandeering that passport case.

Yea, it's usually the other cat that gets in the pictures. Lay something on the ground, he lays on it.

Heh. I didn't pay for the Blu Rays. Thought I just put that in. Actually, my budget is pretty small. But I was in a semi-spending mood due to the Holidays.

I know the feeling. I had no budget and yet I ended up with a Wii U and a handful of games. Oops.

First pickup of the month was Halo 4, $59.99 with a $25 credit on a future purchase. Second was Bl0ps 2, $59.99 with $20 in LIVE points and a $10 credit, both deals from the MS Store online.

Got all of the following over the last five days, all for the Xbox 360:

From the MS Store:
Rage ($9.99 - free w/ MS Store $10 credit)
Deus Ex ($9.99)
Tiger Woods/Master's 2013 Champion Edition ($9.99)
Dishonored ($25 - free after using credit from Halo 4)

From Amazon.com:
XCOM - Enemy Unknown ($25)

From Gamestop.com:
The Witcher 2 ($9.99)

From Newegg.com:
Dark Souls ($14.99)

I also used the four $20 Xbox Live cards I got with preorders from the Microsoft store in October and November to get the BlOps season pass and Skyrim DLC.

In addition, I also got copies of Dishonored and Borderlands 2 @ $25 each, and three copies of Forza Horizon at $15 each, to give as gifts. With two of the copies of Horizon, I used $10 credits from the MS store from previous purchases, reducing the cost to $5 each.

So, for myself, I spent $190 and got nine games, for an average cost of just over $21 per game. This includes two new titles released in November that made up $120 of that total (but reduced the cost of other items thanks to in-store credits by $35), and two titles that came out in September/October of this year.

For friends, I bought five games, all of which released since September, for a total of $75 after discounts, an average of $15 per game.

I'm sure I probably could have waited for additional discounts on Dishonored and XCOM, but those games will be at the top of the list once they arrive.

Thanks again to CheapyD and all who participate on CAG for helping me stretch my gaming dollars a lot further than they used to go. In past years, I was content to spend $240 to get six games on "buy two get one free" deals, and usually, 1-2 of those games were stuff I may not have really wanted, but was just getting because I had to pick a "free" game.

Finding the time to play all that stuff is another matter, but, I'll deal.

This is the only thing I bought for myself this month:

I just don't have the money this year to buy for myself, but I couldn't pass up the deal. Hopefully the 5th season will be a similar price next year.

Let's start with my best pickup. I found this shelf by the dumpster outside my apartment. Someone is moving out and just didn't want to take it. Free!

Black Friday pick ups
mostly Best Buy:

stuff from Buybacks sale:

I decided this was a good time to get some Move stuff since I picked up Wonderbook for my girlfriend. Also picked up child of eden.
Posted Image
Shadows of the Damned was from Big Lots. Soul Calibur IV is missing the tshirt and card =( .

I traded in a PS2 slim and a Master System to get this. Just had to pay tax out of my pocket.
Posted Image
Took the rest of the stuff that they didn't want and went to another local game shop and traded the rest in for this bittersweet find.

And finally a signed print by one of the best comic artists Moebius.

I hope everyone is having as much fun collecting as I am.
