Very nice.

So far I'm in for:

Kingdoms of Amalur @ $8
Torchlight II @ $10
Warlock DLC @ $3
I may not be done yet.

I was sooooo tempted to get Lone Survivor for $5, but I didn't pull the trigger fast enough.
I almost jumped on Dark Souls for $12 on Amazon, but I don't have a controller for my PC. 

I also bought my son Civ IV's expansion for $8.  Combine that with getting the base game for free from the XCOM deal and that's a $40 X-Mas gift for 80% off.   icon_smile

Nice haul. I've been tempted by some of the Steam sales, but haven't bought anything yet.

Most games I've bought over one sale since these things started.

KOTOR 2
Dead Island GOTY
Darksiders
Kof Amalur
Spec ops the Line
Syndicate-the new one
The Darkness 2

Total cost $44.83
I decided a while ago a game has to be under $10 for me to get it. I have a big enough back log now to hold me over and every game will get there eventually. I don't play multiplayer so that's not a concern.
I was hoping Risen 2 or Mass Effect 3 might be up but I guess maybe at Christmas. I have more than enough to play now.

It's hard to believe, but the Microsoft Store had the best Black Friday deals this year by pricing almost everything at $9.99 or the $14.99 Forza Horizons. 

Microsoft Store
Gears of War 3 $9.99
FIFA Street $9.99

Steam
Crysis 2 Max Edition $11.99
The Walking Dead $12.49

Toys 'R Us
Skylanders Giants Starter Set $49.99 (we already have the portal, but this deal was cheaper than the set for portal owners)

As a one at a time gamer for 23 years who created his first backlog with the 2011 winter steam sale I worry about this. But with a price point of $10, I don't feel like I'm wasting too much money. Plus, with so many publishers in trouble, I feel there could be a drought at any momment. Then again, there are a lot of cool kickstarter stuff as well..... So far, all is still good.

Thanks to Laner I now to have Forza Horizon - $14.99
I almost pulled the trigger on Dishonored at $44.99 now its $29.99 with in 48hrs.
I am going to wait for the end of year sale, It should be $15.00 by then with walking dead at under $9.99.
It will also allow me time to shrink my backlog a little less than it is right now.

Actually didn't get much in the way of games: Torchlight II 4-pack, NFS Most Wanted for my son.

What I did get a ton of were videos:
Brave
Hunger Games
Big Bang Theory
Twilight Zone
The Prisoner
Bond 50
Battlestar Galactica
Robotech

Spent - more than I want to think about just now.

Actually, the biggest bargain this past weekend was kind of random. My wife and I have been wanting some new pots & pans for a long while now, and we had intended to buy some months ago, picked out what we wanted to get and everything, just didn't get around to it. I happened to be looking at them on Amazon over the weekend to see if there happened to be a sale, and saw one of the external ads. Turns out that Sierra Trading Co. (which has all kinds of great things) had a small 5 PC set at a killer price. Not the set I would have bought otherwise, but a great way to get a few pans to try and see how we like them before sinking more money in.

I grabbed Dishonored for $25, Civ V:G&K for 7.49, Starcraft II for 19.99 and Mists of Pandaria for 14.99.  I almost caved on Fallen Enchantress and also a 3DS, but I am going to wait a little longer on those.
