So black friday has come and gone and while deals are continuing throughout the weekend I was wondering what were some of the random gaming purchases you guys made? Going in I wanted to buy some specific games, Metal Gear HD Collection, Spec Ops The Line, both of the Witcher games on Steam. I managed to get all of those for cheap but there were a couple random purchases. I ended up buying The Sims 3 on Origin, yeah I know, for $9, Need for Speed Most Wanted Vita for $20 and even though I hated the series after 2 I bought Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for $16.99 because why not. So what were the random game deals that caught you?

The things I didn't expect to buy were Syndicate, Persona 4: Arena, and...hmm, I guess I did pretty well, this year. Although I'm considering buying Battlefield 3.

EDIT: Just gave in and bought Nier, Bayonetta(?) and an Xbox Controller battery charger.

The Microsoft Store...holy shit. Ended up getting the whole Gears trilogy for 20, Forza Horizon for 15, Binary Domain for $10. Those were random. 
I also knocked off a lot of my To Do list for the rest of the year from there. Spec Ops and Dragon's Dogma also for 10.

this insane microsoft store sale reminds me of this

also I bought hella way too many games for 10$.

#9 Edited by TheMathlete (326 posts) -

I picked up The Walking Dead on Steam for 50% off. That's about it.

Edit: I also picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $19, but that wasn't part of any black friday sales. Just Wal-Mart's bargain bin.

I'm actually really looking forward to play it after I'm done with The Walking Dead.

MLB The Show 12 
Dishonored 
that crazy Assassin's Creed Vita bundle

#11 Posted by rjayb89 (7728 posts) -

Nothing random, just things I've been wanting for awhile now. Got The Sims 3 Seasons (not that worth it, really (honestly, I could say that for all of the expansion/stuff packs)) and the Dawnguard and Hearthfire DLCs for Skyrim.

#12 Posted by Nev (561 posts) -

I grabbed Dishonored, and Sleeping Dogs on 360 for $25 at Amazon. Also the eBook 'Ubik' from Amazon for 99 cents...

That aside I've grabbed a couple Steam sale games.

#13 Posted by AlexW00d (6431 posts) -

A hunting game cause I'm awesome.

#14 Posted by Morningstar (2238 posts) -
#15 Posted by Marz (5671 posts) -

only got Dishonored.

#16 Posted by AndrewB (7689 posts) -

The only things I bought were the two games I'd been holding out on a sale for: X-Com and Hitman: Absolution (yes, it literally just released, but budgets and all). Quality over quantity.

#17 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2030 posts) -

I actually only grabbed ArmA II on Steam. I was this close to buying a bunch of The Sims 3 expansion packs, but I'm not the same me as several years ago when I was a middle schooler who could spend time bumming around with games like that anymore. Life's too busy for me to be life-simulating like that.

It doesn't count for immediate gaming, but I did buy a 256GB Vertex 4 Solid State Drive, two 8GB RAM sticks, and upgraded my laptop to Windows 8. I also bought a $90 3TB HDD to use with my enclosure as storage.

#18 Posted by SefaRed (123 posts) -

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood for £4.99 at Gamersgate. Amazing price considering it's usually £14 to £20 everywhere else. I haven't reckoned much to any of Steam's deals so far.

#19 Posted by mnzy (2925 posts) -

I bought 

  • Spec Ops (4€)
  • Rage (4,99€)
  • Max Payne 3 (~12€)
All digital.

I didn't get anything in the stores. I was going to buy a new TV because mine started acting up but it suddenly stopped and is working fine now. So I'm sure once all the deals have passed it will break again and I will be shit out of luck. I kept looking through all the fliers and there just were not any good deals in my eyes. Nothing grabbed me so I just didn't bother. I keep checking online stores but I'm hoping there's nothing on there because they are waiting for CyberMonday.

I picked up a couple cheap things on Steam but that's it. A skin for like $.50 for a guy I use in Awesomenauts, and the Magicka DLC bundle for like $6. That's all that caught my eye so far.

#21 Posted by Bakumatsu (374 posts) -

I bought Walking Dead for 15€ and both dlcs for Skyrim (Dawnguard for 9.99€ and Heartfire for 2.49€) on Steam. But the weekend isn't over yet. Saw Skyrim of Impulse Drive for 15€, which pissed me off since I bought it a week ago on Gamefly for 25€.

#22 Posted by Chris2KLee (2338 posts) -

Syndicate on PC for $4.

#23 Posted by Management (593 posts) -

I pre-ordered Far Cry 3 for what equals to 40 dollars. This is really good if you keep in mind that a new game usually costs around 90 dollars here in Norway.

Pretty happy with that deal.

#24 Posted by Levius (1227 posts) -

I got Resident Evil 6 for £15 (about $24) today, at worst it will be a fun local co-op experience to blast through over Christmas.

#25 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1733 posts) -

I got that Ass Creed Vita bundle on amazon. Total steal. 

#26 Posted by fuzzybunny566 (451 posts) -

batman arkham city for 15 bucks on steam was a long time coming for me, but i never expected to grab syndicate pc for like 8 bucks and mortal kombat komplete x360 for 20 bucks off amazon...two separate orders and those games fulfilled the 25 dollar free shipping minimum on each

#27 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Really happy with my Vita, I traded in my 360 towards it so I got it cheap as hell.

#28 Posted by Kieran_Smith5 (152 posts) -

Picked up the 3ds, and Super Mario 3D Land bundle.

#29 Posted by CaLe (4050 posts) -

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

I guess I bought it during Black Friday, but it wasn't discounted or anything.

#30 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1668 posts) -

I ended up getting War of the Roses and XCOM for myself! But, I've already gotten a few gifts so I indulged myself...

#31 Edited by BigDaddy81 (330 posts) -

Just picked up Dishonored and XCOM for $25 each. Also picked up the $180 Assassin's Creed Vita bundle for the girlfriend.

I think that just about covers the rest of the games I wanted to get this year. Still on the fence about Far Cry 3.

#32 Posted by Extreme_Popcorn (842 posts) -

I got a 500GB PS3 and Vita with PS Allstars in a bundle for £329

#33 Posted by Adaurin (188 posts) -

Forza Horizons for $15 and the Sly Cooper Collection for $10.

#34 Posted by borkran (24 posts) -

Up here in the fabled Canadas I got me some LA Noire Complete (PS3) for $19.99, Sleeping Dogs (360) for $29.99 and XCOM (360) for $39.99. Not a bad haul!

#35 Posted by believer258 (12179 posts) -

  • Borderlands 2
  • Audiosurf
  • Dead Island
  • Max Payne 3

#37 Posted by itspizza (446 posts) -

Dance central 3 for the GF $15

XCOM $33

Walking dead $12

First gaming PC $800

#38 Edited by DjDonFrancisco (299 posts) -

I bought

Max Payne 3 - $9

Forza Horizon - $15

Binary Domain - $10

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - $10

XCOM: Enemy Unknown - $25

The most random was definitely XCOM. I've had little interest in it despite the acclaim, but after dodging and denying it each time saw it on sale, I finally bit yesterday evening when I came across the last copy at Walmart. I'll chalk it up to fate.

If the Microsoft Store restocks, I'll probably grab a copy of Saints Row The Third and Syndicate.

#39 Posted by RareMonkey (110 posts) -

nothing i resisted all purchases, but i couldnt find the bundle i wanted from amazon yesterday (bioware bundle) so far sad black friday

#40 Posted by pyromagnestir (4339 posts) -

I overspent during the Steam summer sale, and also with some subsequent game purchases, so I've pretty much ignored all sales going on.

#41 Posted by ragbag (44 posts) -

Forza Horizon from the Microsoft Store for $15 and XCOM for $25 when I got off work at Walmart late Thursday night.

#42 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

I finally got a washer and dryer so fuck this video game shit. I mostly got steam games like Hotline Miami.

#43 Posted by Silver-Streak (1382 posts) -

All Digital for me:

Syndicate from Gamefly for $4

Sleeeeepy Dawgs from Amazon for $20

Kingdoms of Amalur from Gamefly for $6.3

Dark Souls from Amazon for $15

#44 Posted by Oscar__Explosion (2402 posts) -

I didn't intend to buy anything, but I saw Saints Row The Third for $10 on Microsoft's online store and had to get it.
