Trying to make this week’s list was a lot, y’all. As a result of the pandemic making it wildly irresponsible to gather in our yearly show of mass consumerism, most Black Friday deals have already gone live. I don’t have nearly the space to go through all the bangers on sale right now, so I’m going to get to the shits.
You know, if I knew this was going to be on sale this month I probably wouldn’t have bought it at launch. That being said, I don’t regret my purchase as Watch Dogs: Legion is one of the more interesting games I’ve played this year. It’s almost like a big-budget procedurally generated game. There is no singular protagonist, instead, you can control virtually anyone in the game by recruiting them to your hacktivist collective, DedSec.
It doesn’t always net the most engaging results but this game is fascinating when all the pieces come together. Recruiting a construction worker so you can discreetly sneak onto a worksite to hack a computer is, surprisingly, mad satisfying. This is by far one of the more experimental games to come out at its price point this year and I have to commend it for the risks it took. The Watch Dogs games continue to have such a unique, puzzle-based approach on the open-world game and I definitely recommend giving this one a look.

If you, like me, left the Jeezy/Gucci Verzuz with an intense desire to beat a nigga’s ass, why not try Tekken instead? You can throw all the hands you want without ever catching a case. Tekken 7 has quietly maintained its dominance as the premier fighting game of the current generation and for good reason. Once you experience some Good Ass Tekken, there really isn’t any going back.
The ultimate edition nets you the first two season passes, which include multiple stages and additional characters. Tekken is the definition of easy to learn, hard to master, but training modules added to the game help make it more approachable for newcomers. The regular price for all this content is $100 bucks, so it’s a pretty solid discount in my opinion.
The sheer amount of game you get here is an unbelievable steal. For only 20 bucks more than the recently released Valhalla’s base price,
