Wow, Just Cause 4,  20%-25% off - I forgot this game came out already!  Talk about lack of fanfare.

 

edit to add: a few deals in here if I didn't own them already like:

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 - Frosty Deluxe Edition - $5.00 - 80% off

Mortal Kombat XL - $5.00 - 75% off

Need for Speed Payback - Deluxe Edition - $12.00 - 80% off (DLC has achievements)

Sort of looking at Burnout Paradise Remastered and Edith Finch, but having spent the past few years getting GwG titles that I already own, I'm reluctant.  My new rule of thumb is whether I plan to play the game in the next couple months, and for both of these titles, the answer is "no".

 

Even more than in the x360 era, these games aren't going anywhere, so I'll hang onto my cash.  Fringe titles, super-cheap titles, DLC, and complete editions are still possibilities, but I don't see anything leaping out at me yet.

I missed the show but Outer Worlds sounds like a must-play for me.  Was once again hoping for more Borderlands 3 news after those weird tweets a couple days ago - man the pent up demand for that game; it better be good.

 

Tried Persona 5 last week, and now have a personal example of a game I didn't like within 15 minutes of starting it up.  I thought, wow so much text... and Googled it.  I guess the game finally turns into more than an interactive story after multiple hours of play?  Hmm, no thanks!  Everyone raves about it so I must be missing out, but that's ok - plenty more to play.

 

I completed the The Bureau: XCom Declassified a couple years back and thought it was a fun playthrough on the cheap.

My Black Friday/Cyber Monday Haul:

Impact Winter

 

That's literally all I bought...

Hey, thanks for posting this.  Totally skipped over that game initially but after seeing your post and reading up on it, it seems right up my alley; adding to haul. 

 

I have enough MS Rewards points to get another $15 in credit and I'm trying to decide what to get. I'm mostly leaning towards either just getting Lego City Undercover and holding on to a few points or getting Dishonored 2. I haven't played through the first Dishonored yet, but I know everyone pretty much loved the sequel and I really enjoy the Lego games, although I didn't really get into LCU when I had it when I had a Switch, but I was playing it mostly mobile.

Anyone have any advice?

Sales of Dishonored 2 were less than the publishers hoped, so in order to finish up the plot lines and cap the entire series, Death of the Outsider was developed as standalone rather than DLC to include everything Arkane wanted.  I don't think it sold especially well either, but if you want the full Dishonored experience you likely want both Dis2 and DotO.

I keep thinking about getting AC: Odyssey but I just can't drop the $40.19 on it while I see the disc is $27 on Amazon... The Amazon one is actual money out of pocket though. I think I might just hold til Christmas sale and see if there is anything more I want on that sale and if not then get Odyssey at that point. These discounted bing points don't expire til February.

Keep in mind AC:Odyssey Gold comes with AC III remastered and the Season's Pass is seemingly never priced well.  At least with Odyssey and Far Cry 5 you actually get a whole game included with the Gold editions; with AC:Origins the Season's Pass is still $26 a year later, and a complete rip-off I think.
