The Nintendo World Report Black Friday 2017 Survival Guide

Games On Cards

by Donald Theriault - November 22, 2017, 12:20 pm PST

We claim no responsibility if you lick any of your Black Friday purchases in this section.

There's only two Nintendo published Switch games on the list. One you can probably guess, one is one you may not expect. But the advantage of 3rd party performance on Switch is that there's more of a variety this year in what they're offering, including some titles that I totally forgot had retail releases.

There's soms interesting deals on the 3DS end, including an RPG that not many of you played because it launched post-Switch but might be worth a flier at its discount price. (Even if the game's DLC becomes even harder to justify.) Heck, there's a few Wii U titles getting whacked with the marking stick.

GameStop, lover of used games, is running "Buy 2 get 1" promos for flat rates this year with qualifying 3DS and Wii U games: this includes all pre-Sun and Moon Pokemon 3DS games at 3 for $40 ($20 each) and a Wii U starter set (Smash Bros, Mario Maker, Splatoon and Mario Kart 8 not-Deluxe) at $30 each.

That Canadian BIAS... and for our sacred holiday Black Friday!  :(

KhushrenadaNovember 22, 2017

Oh, we have this Black Friday discussion again? I can dig up my posts from last year. Nothing like free posts by reposting what I've posted before. Ian Sane knows what I'm talking about! MEGA ZINGER!! Poor guy getting a driveby zinging like that despite having done nothing in this thread.

Canadian Black Friday makes no sense. Do kids get it off from school?

KhushrenadaNovember 22, 2017

No. Not unless they skip class.

Plus, we already had our Thanksgiving last month. Lazy Americans. Finally getting around to your Thanksgiving a month later and a dollar short (which is why you have to discount everything after your Thanskgiving). Plus, we get our Thanksgiving done in a day. You need two days off for yours? C'mon. If we can stuff down our turkey, gravy, high fat mash potatoes, pumpkin pies and booze in one evening and be back to work and school early the next day then there's no reason the U.S.A.'ns can't be doing the same thing. This three extra days to digest and recover seems like a real scam.

Thursday is Thanksgiving, Friday is Black Friday. Two Holidays.

Black Friday isn't an official holiday in the States. Some states recognize "The Day After Thanksgiving" as a holiday but Black Friday itself isn't a holiday which makes sense. Why do you want to celebrate racism? What's next, White Wednesday?

•Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice: 50% ($14.99/$19.99)

Boo-yah! Been waiting for this game to drop down in price. Learned my lesson after Dual Destinies at full cost. Plus, it help made for a bit of gap between this and DD so I'm ready for another Wright adventure.

•Rhythm Heaven Megamix: 50% ($14.99/$21.14)

Hmmmm. I've debated picking this up. My problem is that it isn't all new content. Half of it comes from the GBA rhythm heaven that was never release in NA but the rest of the content was released here before. Anyone have some thoughts on this?

Too bad. I was hoping for Virtual Console deals for the Wii U or a discount on Pushmo World. I've been wanting to buy it for a few months but I keep waiting because I fear that if I buy it now then it will end up being on sale a week or two after I do it.

The Superstore deal is a real surprise as I haven't heard of any store still having electronics in stock. I miss their electronics section. I'd fill up my car all the time at Superstore's gas station and get superbuck coupons for doing that. After a couple months, I'd cash them all in on a game and could usually knock it down in price by 40% - 50%. Even better savings if the game was already on sale. Wish they'd stock video games again so I could take advantage of them some more.

Next thing you'll be telling me Super Bowl Sunday isn't a real holiday...
