I didn't expect to buy much during Black Friday but the deals ended up being good.

I want a watch pls.

I liked hearing your black Friday stories, all I got was the Blu-Ray player that was $38 at Wal-mart. Was 15th in line.
The cheap bastards didn't put a HDMI cable in the box with it though.

The watch sounds great. I think that wombat and shipwreck should have recorded the plus and minuses list shipwreck gave to wombat for buying the ps3 or vita. I love the show, and it is one of the best podcasts I listen to each week. By the way amazingly the wii u was sold out near me (southern New Jersey), but it appears that on gamestop's website on Cyber Monday it was easy enough to order one from them online. Do you guys think that this is too soon to spell doom for Nintendo?

Dude, I literally started sweating when I saw it. The other guests at the dinner must have thought I was a mental patient. Thanks again!

Such a good Black Friday this year. Crazy to hear you still go out there and shop in the stores for Brown Thursday and Black Friday Shipwreck. But then again you did get Brave. Crickets? No one? Fine don't enjoy my puns!

I pulled in AC Liberations Vita bundle and Dishonored from Amazon and Forza Horizons, Asuras Wrath, Dragons Dogma, and Gears of War 3 from Microsoft Store. Really happy with the sales this year.

I'm a bit surprised that the Vita bundle was one of the biggest sellers this Black Friday. I was a bit tempted by the AC Liberation bundle, but there just isn't enough out to justify the purchase. Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Person 4, LittleBigPlanet, and Little King's Story interest me, but after looking at the future releases (only like 5 games announced), I couldn't pull the trigger. Maybe now that there was a spike in Vita sales, we'll see some increased support for it.

And Half-Minute Hero watch, you say?!?! Want!!

Playstation Plus is awesome, but yeah, I have no space for any of the games. I'm going to wait for the Vita memory cards to go down in price and I'm looking into upgrading the HDD in my 80GB PS3.

Please enter me into the contest by the way, thanks.

Yes Wombat you can play Mario with headphones I have the Wii ones but it is just a headphone jack like on the AMAZING 3DSXL

Also Fantastic answer on the Lego game was wondering the same thing glad I bought that @ walmart for me and my son.

Great show, not surprised the vita did well, even I was considering pulling the trigger. And I've been dead set against it since it came out.

Could always use another watch.

Great episode. Nice deals this year. Toys r us had a great deal on Wii U games as well. Love hearing CHeapy burp. Music to my ears, I would enjoy checking the time on a Half-minute hero watch. Thanks Cakes done.

Great show! Was funny to hear Shipwreck say he finished the WiiU. Every always tries to point out the huge launch game list, but all the year-old ports with nothing/barely anything added just pad it.

I didn't understand Cheapy's $9.99 Microsoft store madness panic. If there was already a thread up that he saw on his phone, what was the problem?

I would like some Half-Minute Hero swag is possible, please

Damn, Wombat, Amazon would not give me $4.99 back when they dropped Battlefield 3 from $29.99 to $25. The rep went away for a long time, and came back and said that is against their policy. So, yeah, contrary to what Cheapy said, Amazon actually kind of sucks for price matching/adjusting. Any given rep is YMMV as Wombat discovered, but in general they do not do that sort of thing any more.

I tried explaining to them that I could just buy the lower priced one and return the other (with Prime it probably wouldn't cost me anything) but they still refused. I thought I'd save us both hassle and them some expense, but no, they wouldn't budge. So, yeah, not happy with Amazon over that...

And listening to you guys it is shocking how many deals I missed out on despite researching BF for days leading up to it and being at the ready on the computer when things started. I had no idea Brave blu-ray was only $9. I was looking at using some of the Amazon instant video credit that I have but it is freaking $14.99 there - I just can't pay that knowing it was only $9 on BF ;).

But yeah, even though I missed out on the best stuff at the MS store, I did get quite a bit from there. I'm staring at a stack of about 20 right now. Some are for me, some are for my son for Christmas. The rest, I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do with, but I just couldn't pass them up. But I missed Star Wars Kinect (along with Skyrim, Amazing Spiderman, Lego Batman 2, and Star Wars Old Republic CE). My best purchases were Fallout New Vegas Ultimate, Dragon's Dogma, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and Witcher 2.

Just listened to the Sports Champions 2 bit - I bought that. As Ship said, the first one was pretty good. Since the second just came out at $40 and Amazon had it for $10, that was a no-brainer IMO. One of my best overall purchases from BF, actually.

Cheapy: Love the McKenzie Brothers reference, you hoser! I wonder how many of your younger listeners missed that one. My cousin and I used to make our own Great White North audio recordings back in the day ;).

Great show.

How about some follow up on your Fitbit usage? I got a Fitbit One and a Jawbone Up and I'm comparing them. Hard getting used to the bracelet, but the Up has some better sleep features and a slightly better app.

Enter me into your contest please!

Another great show.

All I picked up for me on BF was the $20 Borderlands 2 from Amazon.

Would drop $$ on a year of PS+ if Sony would drop those Vita memory cards. My 4gb card is full and I dont want to deal with the hassle of moving data around for a new game. Just stuck with the games I have until I break down and buy that memory card.

Would love a new watch.
If its free, its for me!!

Good show, guys. I had a bit of a rough Black Friday personally, missing out on a lot of the lightning deals I wanted. The MS store came through with Forza, though!

Please enter me in the Half-Minute Hero contest. Thanks!

If it hadn't been for the TV I bought I would of definitely bought that Vita Bundle. Well anyway I get to enjoy smacking people with purple dildos on 32' of glory. I do wish I got to that 10 Microsoft thread earlier :cry: , I didn't get anything only DC3 for 14.99 which is still good.

Dang, I got in on a lot of deals this black friday but it sounds like I missed a lot too. I'll have to pay more attention on these deals.

Put me in for the watch as well.

Another good show.

Regarding Destiny, the story sounds interesting, but the idea of it being inspired by an mmo (and how im not impressed with their storytelling in general), it still has me a lil weary. But if they can make some changes to the mmo formula and work it into a great thing for whatever this game ultuimately becomes, than it could be special.
