Hey big spender. How about sending some of that excess cash my way? I'm an...uh...Irish...orphan. With scoliosis. And my parents were murdered. By cannibals. Help!

OT: I might get the GF one of those single serve coffee makers. I was just going to buy it locally but the shops nearest me don't carry the model I want, and I'm too lazy to drive around looking for one that does. It's all gonna depend on whether or not I get free shipping.

I actually enjoy the whole black Friday shopping clusterfuck experience. I used to work retail so this will be the first time in a while I will be able to go out and wrestle grandmas over televisions.

It will also be tough for me to resist going next gen, I need to stay focused and spend my money on gifts and more useful stuff like fancy appliances. Bloodborne looks awesome but I need a toaster with WiFi because it's 2015 and officially the future

I think it is fucking stupid. Not the sales mind you, that is rad, but the people!! Holy shit, relax!!! How the hell do people trample others and get in fights over microwaves?!?

People go full retard. They should never go full retard over something so insignificant.

I think as a form of population control, we should just gamify Black Friday, Smash TV style with guns and toasters.

'Murica.

Welcome to holidays in the US, especially those that are highly commercialized. Christmas also gets bad where the weeks before the holidays everyone turns into a psychopath on the road.

Bonus points if you live somewhere that gets a lot of snow, because that does wonders for people's demeanor in traffic.

Well thanks to this toystore sales BEFORE Black Friday, I sucker myself into buying the rest of the Skylanders Swap Force figures that I wanted (normal figures were from £5 to £1 and the Swapforce figure were £7 to £5). I know from past experience is that once it's gone, it's gone (how am I suppose to know those were the last two Flashwing they got???) as I wasn't going to risk holding out any longer especially when I seen the rate they have been selling! It didn't helped the fact that they won't kept hold of the figures I wanted to buy on Black Friday itself (they were full at the back which I don't know to believed or accept it as I worked in retail). I will still popped in to see who they got left but I won't be annoyed if they're all gone when I arrived.

Other than that, the only other Black Friday plan are-

Eletronic store- Headset and mic (I finally give into using Teamspeak if I want to start doing Raids in Guild Wars 2).

Spot shop- new tainer (my current one are worn out now to the point that my feet get wet when stepping on a puddle which is not supring as the sole are half gone).

I work retail, how do you think I feel?

Seriously, not really looking forward to the next few days. I work in the electronics/toys department and today I was mobbed from when I first punched in at 8 til I left at 5. Answering phone calls and heading to the backroom to make extra-special-double-sure we didn't have an item in stock. Can't wait til Christmas is over!

Every year, lots of people (mostly young males) enjoy the running of the bulls in Spain, despite the odd trampling or goring.

Why not the running of the consumers?

I'm going to steal all of my neighbour's cats to smother with affection while they're waiting six hours in multiple lines to get 50% off a $20 toaster. I don't see any stores handing out complimentary door buster cats so I'm quite certain I'm getting the best deal out of it this way.
This is the best Black Friday plan ever! Personally it's too late in the month for me to be able to afford anything because I'm disabled and on a fixed income. Also being disabled would prevent me from standing lines unless I could borrow a neighbors electric wheel chair anyways. In all honesty this yearly event just pisses me off because I'm not one of those people who has money in the point of the month it falls, meaning I never get in on any of the deals anyways.

As always I'm just looking to put a dent in my Christmas shopping with a smaller dent in my wallet. That said, I was taught well that the first rule of shopping for a deal is that you have to be willing to walk away, so I'm unlikely to get all my Christmas shopping done.

Shit... I already bought 4 games off Steam not too long ago... Uh... With that said...

Black Friday: Not buy shit!
Cyber Monday: Finally buy that damn Wii U already with the GameCube adapter!

Other than that, on the day before Cyber Monday, I got some PMs to give out before I watch the OG Star Wars trilogy on VHS!

I bought Fallout New Vegas. Lets see what all the fuss is about. I'd like to buy a >1TB SSD but I think I'll hold out for another year. Its not an immediate need.

Hello poor Irish orphan with scoliosis with murdered parents! I'm a... uh.... disposed.... Nigerian Prince! Please send me your route number to your savings account and I'll see what I can do.

Black Friday is my national "Don't leave the house and be a lazy bastard" day.

I won't be getting anything then, but I will be looking on Monday to see if there are anything interesting that I can get that I can snag.

I normally get most of my Christmas shopping done on Monday, so I'm hoping I can continue the trend. If not then, well, I'd rather not venture out where the lost souls of the damned are, i.e, retail.

I really truly do hate it, and I can't think of any deal that would make me want to face the crowds and what not. I just did most of my Xmas shopping today on Amazon. No fuss, no muss. I really don't think retail stores should be making people work on thanksgiving day. all those type jobs should be closed.*

*mind you, I say this but I'll be on a quest to find an open liqour store tomorrow.

There a couple of deals I'm interested on the Xbox One game store... maybe if CyberMonday has some deals, I'm kinda interested in picking up a WiiU or a 3DS.

I just wanted to ask about the new discount which appeared in Steam. Are these the Black Friday's offers for this year?
