Anyone interested in video games, Walmart is going to have Batman: Arkham City and Battlefield 3 for $28 each on Black Friday. I think I may have to go out an risk getting into fisticuffs with old ladies and try get both games.

I would have gone for that if it was COD, but I already got Arkham City weeks ago at full price. GOTTA HAVES ME THOSE PREORDER BONUSES...

While I don't know of any deals on the following...these are things I'm hoping to buy on black friday.

1. Jurassic Park Blu Ray set
2. Alien Anthology Blu Ray set
3. Lord of the Rings 2011 Blu Ray set

I ended up buying a new LED TV today. Best Buy is price matching through Jan. 24. So if the price falls, I just have to go back and get a refund.

I didn't see anything terribly interesting in the ads I looked at... I'm thinking about getting Epic Mickey for Wii at Target ($15), and the $200 PlayStation 3 is tempting, but I probably won't buy it.

I'm working from 11:45pm to 11:45am, so I don't exactly have a chance to buy anything, anyway.

AAFES (for us military peoples) is selling the new Assassins Creed game for 39 bucks. Great deal, 20 dollars off. I'll be getting that. Last year I picked up Assassins Creed Brotherhood on BF at AAFES as well.

Other than that, nothing else I was really hopped up about.

If you're just a casual gamer, I wouldn't bother with the 250GB console. You're better off spending the $140 and getting some DVD's or video game.

Really depends on if he is going to use XBOX Live. A single DLC can fill up the 4GB.

Then if he installs games on the drive (I all my games off the drive since I don't like the disc spinning - less heat) that could fill up the drive right away.

I have no idea. I'm pretty sure that when she came out originally she was about 70 bucks give or take. I just thought it was kind of funny and it sort of fit in here, even though it is not a deal at all. Maybe they are trying to get someone to believe they are getting a great deal so they buy it immediately.

That's what I was thinking too. Man, that's going a little too far.

$99 for a camera that retails for $239. A great deal to be had.

Good deal, indeed! Anyone else score anything worth mentioning lately?
