What are your thoughts/experience with these for the Switch:

 

Nyko Armor Case - Some reviews say it's great but can charge or attach joycons with it on

PDP Ultra Guard screen protector - mostly to avoid the scratches from the docking station

Rocketfish TV Dock - Some have it as great others have it as bricking the switch

 

Looking for: a screen protector from scratches, may be a different docking station, anything else for a safe travel for the switch.

Dang, $25 for a sealed $40 game and a $20 plush sounds great. There were like 5 more copies left on the shelf, I might have to go back for those.

I would advise against the PDP Switch screen protector. I bought it and realized it was just plastic and people had issues with it based on youtube videos.

 

I ended up with a tempered glass screen protector from Techmatte (https://techmatte.com/NIN-SWTCH-GLSX2) and was happy with the purchase and cost.

4 or 5 years ago, regular sales were better than black friday sales are now. I hardly even look anymore. It's always been a way for stores to get rid of old stock, but these days it seems they are far less willing to part with old stock for cheap. Most BF deals recently are repeats or discounts I find to be normal for any time of year.

 

Oh well.

Any thoughts on Song of Seasons vs Rune Factory 4 on Switch?

Any reason to grab Rune Factory if I have an unplayed 3DS copy? And is Song of Seasons worth picking up compared to Stardew Valley?

The actual BF sales start on Nov 22nd.

Not sure what we'll see - maybe burst temp sales like what we are seeing now.


Like I got the 400 GB Sandisk SD card from BB for the same price it will be on BF next month.

32 inch 4K makes me laugh.


I agree, a 32” screen should be outputting 8K minimum these days.

I thought these are actual Black Friday deals that are just available now. If the lg CX I just bought goes down in price even more later I’ll be pissed

Picked up a couple of early deals with Mario + Rabbids for $15 and the HP DeskJet 2725 wireless printer for $25 (also got the standard yield cartridges). My mom got the Logitech K400 Plus wireless keyboard for $18 to use with her laptop.

 

Hoping NFS: HP Remastered will be on sale for XB1 as well.

I’d be cross about ordering that a week and a half ago from Amazon for $25 if I hadn’t had the $10 credit from the Prime Day top up promotion and it hadn’t come late and they’d given me $30 credit to make up for it.

Weirdly enough I actually preordered this at Best Buy and never got sent the plush.  Guess they got the plushes late.

Return policy has been extended.

 

Also the Best Buy ad has been leaked...not sure if your TV is part of it but best worth checking it out. (its on their site too now).

I bought NSMBU Deluxe and Yoshi's Crafted World when it was $40 but its apparently gonna be $35 each on that week but bleh I'm fine with that.

So you’re saying I don’t have to be elite bestbuy member to get extended price adjust? If so that’s awesome. I bought lg CX 55 for $1350 btw

Not that impressed, but they've always had random new deals in the past so hoping there'll be more tempting stuff during that weekend. Hoping since they dropped theirs first, the other competitors will slash prices further

Best Buy, it is listed under their "coming soon: more games for $14.99 or less" Black Friday deals. There are actually some decent deals, however it's pretty annoying how far down you have to dig to actually find them.

Link ..??

Is a TV considered as a major appliance? If it is part of the "Most products" line then it would be until Jan 16th (I'm assuming this is for regular customers too since they divided Elite and Elite plus into two different categories too)


Edit: Apparently Major appliances mean Fridges, Washing Machines, Dryers, etc - not TVs.

Though I think your TV will probably be the same price - I see one that is $1,349.99 same brand and size so that may be it.

Thanks for this heads up - I was thinking about getting the PDP one - been advised to get tempered glass protectors too.

Is TC: Breakpoint on XB1 worth playing cause I’m about to start playing Borderlands 3 and was wondering if it was worth adding to the backlog at $10?

Ordered :switch: Story of Seasons FoMT and :ps4: Ys Memories of Celceta. Tried my luck in store first to see if they had any pre-order bonus copies of SoS left, but no such luck.

It's good that Amazon made up for the making the mistake. After the credit it's like getting the keyboard for free which is cool. I dislike buying something only for it end up on sale for a cheaper price a short time later, lol.

Hopefully it just goes straight to Game Pass with the rest of EA games next month.
