@Th3solution @Voltan Sometimes the PS5 version is cheaper over here, especially 2nd hand. And obviously if you don't have access to a PS4, then there is no point in getting that version lol.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

I just got my last batch of games that I've ordered during Black Friday week and overall, I think BF has been pretty good!

Untitled

I'm still considering buying two more games, No More Heroes 3 and Guardians of the Galaxy, but I'm waiting until tomorrow in case some other stores decide to discount those games even more.

Th3solution

@LtSarge Yeah, it seems like this has been a more impressive BF than usual. I don’t remember BF sales having new releases this heavily discounted before. And some games with stingy prices through the year are finally getting down to reasonable prices.

@LtSarge Wow, you've picked up a great selection! What do you think you'll play first?

@Th3solution Game prices have been a bit crap this year, so it's nice that many have come down in time for the holidays. The British market has historically been very competitive, but prices have remained stubbornly high for much of the year. I'm pleased with my digital purchases: I got Skyrim for the PS5, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps on the Switch (which I've been waiting for a discount for ages), as well as another year of cheap PS Plus.

@Th3solution I agree, I don't remember previous years having so many new releases so heavily discounted. Which begs the question, is there a reason to buy new releases during Autumn anymore? Games like Tales of Arise and Lost Judgment only came out a few months ago and they're already 50 percent off. So you might as well just wait a few months for Black Friday and buy them then.

@RogerRoger @mookysam I don't think I'll be playing through most of them right away but I might check out Miles Morales since it's been a while since I played the first Spider-Man game on PS4. I'm actually rather excited to finally play it!

@Th3solution @RogerRoger @mookysam Did you guys buy any games during Black Friday week or maybe you're waiting for tomorrow?

LtSarge

Th3solution

@LtSarge Yeah, perhaps the whole pandemic situation has the pricing upside-down. I also wonder if the pendulum is swinging back slightly from the $70 price point. It’s got to be good to see large uptick in purchases when the prices get more reasonable. Maybe it will send a message to publishers.

I picked up Demon’s Souls and Guardians of the Galaxy through the current BF deals. I had also recently bought The Last of Us 2 and Nier Replicant a couple weeks ago on a separate sale, but for a similar price points as they are going currently. Those four over the last month should be plenty for me for a while. All physical discs, by the way. Whether I get any more before sales end this weekend, I don’t know. The only one might be Hades. It’s base price isn’t too high anyways, so I’ll probably wait, even though it’s a mere $20 right now.

@Th3solution Ah nice! Do share your thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy when you've played it as it seems like a very good game that I've completely overlooked when it was released.

It's interesting you mention physical copies because I just remembered that I got a letter with the package from the store that I bought four of my games from where they thanked me for preserving the culture of physical video games. Don't know if that was because I've bought a lot from them previously or that I simply bought four games from them, which is quite a lot. But either way, it was a nice message and it kinda makes me sad that physical games will inevitably be a thing of the past within the next ten years. I'm sure there will still be some physical games to buy, but it seems like services like Game Pass and PS Now are encouraging people to buy less physical games and play more of them digitally.

@LtSarge you'll enjoy Miles Morales! And let me know how Tales of Arise is.

Kidfried

LtSarge

@Kidfried Will do! I'm still new to the Tales of series as I've only played through Tales of Vesperia and I've played a bit of Tales of Xillia on PS3 before taking a break from it. So it might be a while before I get to Arise, but it does seem like it's the best game so far mechanically.

Have you played any Tales of games before and if so, do you like the series?

RogerRoger

@LtSarge You'll love Miles Morales, I'm sure. My favourite superhero game of all time.

I'm not really partaking in Black Friday this year, but thanks for asking. I only had a couple games in mind, but they haven't been discounted enough to make them worth seizing, so I can be patient (or just get 'em when I'm ready for 'em). I'm not even sure if I'm gonna do my usual thing of stacking up some PS Plus on the cheap, as I never redeem any of its free games, and it'd probably be more cost-effective if I just got a month whenever I wanted to paddle around in some online multiplayer.

The only thing I'd really lose is the cloud-based save file thingy, but my OCD makes me a little fanatical about double-checking that anyway, so I might as well just be backing up my progress on a USB stick instead. It's the same amount of buttons to press.

Sorry, that reads like a real downbeat, defeatist answer! I'm glad you made the most of the sale!

@LtSarge @Kidfried I’ll be starting Tales of Arise as soon as I get the platinum in Guardians. Never played a Tales game before but the demo seemed fun and looked good.

@LtSarge Hi there friend. I played quite a few Tales of games, including the lastest Tales of Arise wich I really enjoyed playing on my PS5. Some are short (40 hours), others are very long (80 hours).
It´s kinda of a niche series. They are not exactly super popular like Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest, but it has its fans. Some of my personal favourites are: Tales of Destiny 2 (PS1), Tales of Shymphonia (NGC), Tales of Eternia (PSP), Tales of the Abyss (N3DS), Tales of Graces f (PS3), Tales of Vesperia (XBOX360), Tales of Xillia (PS3) and Tales of Arise (PS5).
Like I said, quite a few. Some you can probably get them cheap, others not so sure.
And yes, Arise is preety good. The combat, the characters, the world setting, the story and the visuals of course.
Oh, and that´s quite a nice Black Friday collection you got there. I also got a few myself as well. Enjoy.
Cheers, stay safe and have a good one

Cheers, my dudes.

I had to show my “Covid Certificate” at the door - glad that’s a thing now.

@RogerRoger Just a quick reminder — the PS5 doesn’t support manual back up saving via USB drives. It’s a crazy (and suspicious) omission. You’d be fine for your PS4 games though if you still have your Pro hooked up.

@Th3solution To clarify: it does but only for PS4 games - which is even more crazy, I guess.

@RogerRoger That's very high praise coming from you! I think I'm even more excited now to play it.

No worries mate, I think it's totally fine to not partake. I'm sure most games you want will get discounted even more in the future. I decided to hold off on a couple of games I wanted to buy for that reason actually. So hopefully you'll be able to whittle away at your backlog in the meantime!

@Voltan Yeah I've heard a lot of people enjoyed the demo as well. It does seem like Arise is lots of people's first entry into this series, so that should say a lot about the game.

@RaZieLDaNtE Hello! Oh wow, it seems like you have a lot of experience with this series! Have you been playing it for a long time or did you recently get into it?

Thanks! What games did you get for Black Friday if I might ask?

You have a good one too!
