So we recently started the “End of the year money gauntlet” as it were. The time when multiple games and other things start coming out, as well as the holiday gift buying, Black Friday/Cyber Monday/weekend shopping, Secret Santa and everything else that arrives with the speed and subtlety of a thrown brick to the face.
I’m looking at Blops 3 and Fallout 4 currently, but Wizards of the Coast is releasing new Commander precon decks next Friday as well so thats exciting. ( It’s my favorite game type.) Then you have things like the inevitable Cards Against Humanity Holiday Bullshit, Secret SanTAY, and the fact that I like Kamen Rider Ghost enough to the point where I’m trying to collect all the Eyecons and Gadgets.... The Black Friday weekend is kinda iffy, and has been hit or miss recently, so for the most part the only things I’m really looking at are Xbox live and PSN subs for cheap. So I’m trying to prioritize what I can hold off on, and what I’d like to get soon.
Anyway, ramblings aside, what are you guys currently eyeing during this Gauntlet of madness? Lemme know below or just talk about whatever!
