PlayStation Black Friday Sale Highlights

With the busiest shopping day of the year steadily approaching, why not forgo the pushing and shoving and shop from the comfort of your own home? The folks at PlayStation have a pretty great sale going on, along with a coupon code for an additional 10% off your entire purchase.

A full list of discounts can be found here at the official PlayStation store.

In my opinion, this is the best adventure series Telltale Games has done since the first season of The Walking Dead. It’s genuinely hilarious, introduces a ton of great new characters, and landed in my Top 10 Games of 2015 list. Even if you won’t get to it any time soon, it’s slightly more than the cost of a McDouble. Treat yourself.

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt was not only one of my favorite games to release last year, but it’s probably my favorite open-world RPG of all time. It’s an incredible experience on its own, but $25 for the game and all of its DLC expansions? That’s a whole lotta game.

While the narrative of this Lord of the Rings spin-off was surprisingly dull, Shadow of Mordor is a hell of a lot of fun to play around with. The open world is bite-sized, the combat is a mix of the best bits of the Arkham and Assassin’s Creed series, and the Nemesis system creates a living, breathing world that changes with or without you. I can’t vouch for the quality of the DLC, but $8 for one of the best games of 2014 is quite the deal.

$6 for six of the absolute greatest platformers of all time. Enough said.

Although Arkham Knight’s deluxe edition with the season pass is also on sale for $19.99, I wasn’t a fan of any of the DLC. At least not enough to recommend grabbing it. However, I absolutely loved Arkham Knight’s core game–yes, even the pesky Batmobile sections. Just a great superhero game with excellent atmosphere. Even if you’re just a casual fan of the World’s Greatest Detective, it’s worth picking up at this price.

The reboot of Wolfenstein in The New Order remains one of the single greatest shooter campaigns I’ve ever experienced, and The Old Blood is a worthy stand-alone game that offers the same stellar gunplay, storytelling, and overall weirdness that made the rebirth so special.

***

There are a few other noteworthy deals that I just haven’t invested enough time in to recommend, like Dragon Ball Xenoverse and its season pass (PS4) for $16.24, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth (PS4) for $17.99, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus (Vita) for $4.99. Sword Art Online: Lost Song is also a pretty fun RPG if you’re in to the anime, which is down to $14.99 on PS4 and $9.99 on Vita. Otherwise, skip it.

      1. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the soundtrack. Eep it’s still $40 even during the sale? Hm, I may hold off until after Christmas where I should have a bit more money. The 10% coupon the Well-Red Mage posted will only take it down by $4. I *should* make some effort to buy things for other people. I hear there’s this holiday coming up :)

    1. They’re definitely quite a bit different, but both excel at storytelling and character building. It’s truly a special game.

      I ended up grabbing Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition for $5-ish and then dropped $40 total on Just Cause 3 + season pass and Far Cry Primal + season pass. Not sure when I’ll get to them, but sometimes I need an open-world game to screw around in that I just don’t care about. Great stress relievers, haha.
