I personally am avoiding the mess, and trying not to fall into a overdraft frenzy. Although I am tempted to pick up Rayman Origins for $40.  
 
Is there anything you've bought and/or plan to buy today?

Kinda crazy seeing Amazon's Lightning deals sell out within 60 seconds of them going live. 
 
And I should've put this in my first post, but on Wednesday I bought the NSMB Wii Bundle and Skyward Sword at Target for $150.

Nothing yet.
 
I plan on going to best buy tomorrow afternoon after all the crazy people are gone though. I did the same last year and found some good games at half price.

I bought Dark Souls for a 35.00 dollar deal at Amazon for Black friday, then had another 10.00 dollars taken off with a promotional code.

So right now... Dark Souls is 35.00 at Amazon. Not shilling but just saying.

I'm working.

But nothing. I'm not planning on buying anything, unless Newegg and Steam do something insane for Cyber Monday or tomorrow.

Thinking about buying basically what Jeff's new PC build he did with Tested is, but with an SSD instead of HDD, since I already have a 1TB HDD from before the prices went crazy. Need to see if I can talk mom into helping me out some right now, she's already said we need a new computer other than just my laptop.

Was looking at Cyberpower because of their deals for Black Friday, but looking at Amazon (no tax + Prime ftw) and Newegg, I could pretty much build it myself and still save money outside of the fact that Cyberpower would give me a copy of Just Cause 2 for free.

Also thinking I might grab a pair of HD 201/202 headphones since they're only $20 on Amazon.

Family as a whole might be looking to get a new TV, not sure, as we don't really watch a whole ton of TV, and my mom is fine with our ~8year old SD CRT TV

Black Friday...so the armies of Satan Claus gather yet again to try to revive their dark master. It shall not work, knaves! Your efforts are in vain! (Oh, and I haven't bought anything, because it's night. On the Moon.)

Basically this... except for the whole living on the moon thing.

Man! I thought Origins was supposed to be $30 at Gamestop, but that's for the Wii version. I still feel like $40 is too much.

Anyway, so far, I bought Rocky Balboa and Casino Royale DVDs for $1 each, and Metroid: Other M for $5 from Best Buy.

Eh, I ended up buying Best Buy's Skylanders Mega Pack for my brother's Bday present because 1. We used to play Gauntlet all the time. 2. It's a pretty good deal for what you get. and 3. I'm a complete dick.

If it's any consolation, I am disease-free.

Still not going to the moon anytime soon, though. We're not exactly bred for space exploration.

Screw actually going out to get stuff. I just get the early online deals like Assassin's Creed Revelations for $35, and Killzone 3 for $28. I might get some stuff on Cyber Monday as well. Best Buy had some good sales this time around.

I ordered a record that was a few bucks cheaper than it normally is.

Also, Super Meat Boy on XBLA. I knew it was a good idea to wait for a sale.

I went to Wal-Mart and picked up Heavy Rain for $15 and Yakuza 4 for $10. Also picked up Big Bang Theory Seasons 3 and 4 and Fringe Season 2 for $10 each.
 
I treat Black Friday as more of a "Buy gifts for me" rather than "Buy gifts for others". It's too crazy to try to buy gift for others tonight.

Horses are odd-toed ungulates and llamas are even-toed ungulates. Totally different.

I am super tempted right now to pick up New Vegas for five bucks and finally play through it, but then again Skyrim has me by the balls and I don't think I could handle more open world RPG after that. I figure I'll just wait until it's on sale for the zillionth time at some other point in the future.
 
Aside from whatever I pick up from the Steam sale, I feel no need to go out to an actual store, and I don't have that much money to spend on cool things.

Gears of War 3 for about $30, and the Saint's Row Double Pack for about $20. Hopefully that will be it. Ouch! My wallet!

Forza 4 for forty with a five dollar gift certificate off of amazon, so 34.99 flat. Also got Jackie Brown BD for five bucks.

And Rayman: Origins for forty dollars. I left the mall just as a fire truck came rolling in sirens blaring.

Sometimes the best deals are right in front of your nose.
 
Other times the best deals are from CD key reselling sites run by the Russian mob.

MvC 2 is reduced from 1200MP to 320MP today only on XBLA so I'll probably download that when I get in.
So far I've only got Orcs Must Die and VVVVVV on steam. The amazon UK lightening deals this week are terrible, I haven't seen one decent video game related one :(
Also most of the other UK sites don't do Black Friday deals.. damn them.

I choose to avoid this kind of animalistic sale nowadays after learning how much people ditch dignity and respect to cash in on a "great" deal that has cost human lives. Yeah, I know it hasn't been common but the looks of eagerness in peoples eyes and sheer lack of decency they displayed when I worked retail makes me want to avoid that at all costs. I am aware that not all people are that way, but enoug hare.

That's why you stick to the online sales + Cyber Monday.

I, like a few others in this topic, have been hunting for Saint's Row The Third on the cheap, but all I can find is it for like $55 at Target... I thought I read that it was a lightning deal on Amazon on Wednesday, but I was busy traveling... Fuck. I was tempted to pick up Dark Souls for $35, Splatterhouse for $13, and Duke Nukem Forever for $10, but I don't hate myself that much.
