Call of Duty: WWII is one of the year's biggest games, and its Digital Deluxe edition is currently available for 10% off, making it £76.49 on Xbox Live. Other big games discounted include FIFA 18 (£42), Destiny 2 (£41.24), Grand Theft Auto V (£33), and NBA 2K18 (£44). Remember that Xbox Live Gold members get additional discounts on top of the Black Friday sale.
The original Secret of Mana was one of my favorite games back in 1993. It's story is a tale of lost identity, it has a gameplay loop that revolves around upgrading unique weapons, and the game's quirky radial menu system still feels fresh today. This week, after playing several hours of an in-development build of the PS4 Secret of Mana remake, I found lot of things to like, a few things that aren't great, and several places I hope the developers can still improve on the original.
Obviously, the first thing you notice about the Secret of Mana remake is its graphical upgrade; and for the most part, the remake looks better. Despite the nostalgia I have for the 16-bit era, there are some details that just come through better in 3D. Take the opening boss battle against a massive mantis creature. The 2D sprite from the original game (the introductory boss never turns; you only ever see it from the front) is replaced with a version that not only looks more complete, but it provides a more enjoyable fight since you can circle around and attack it from behind.
With this graphical update, the main characters stand out, showing off minutiae in costume design that was lost in their 16-bit forms. And smaller enemies come to life in ways that, while not radically different, feel like they are free from the constraints of their flat-sprite animations. However, not everything benefits equally from the transition to more-detailed models. The manic dancing of the game's shopkeepers, for instance, is distracting and feels out-of-place. In the original, the movement helped bring those characters out of the background, but in the remake it just looks weird. And the re-used NPCs, a regular occurrence in RPG design from the Secret of Mana's original era, feel a little more egregious and harder to ignore when the game has gone through such a huge facelift.
But while the the gameplay looks better overall, Secret of Mana's cutscenes are a mess. Now, I don't mean the new introduction (which you can watch in the video above). The mix there of hand-drawn art with minimal animation is gorgeous and captures the beauty of the game's lush setting. But when the story begins in earnest and you're staring into the eyes of a character that looks like it was pulled straight from a mobile port of the game, it's hard not be disappointed. Secret of Mana's remake seems to use the same in-game models for both gameplay and close-up cinematics. And those characters that look great from a distance feel like '90s CGI cartoon models when you zoom in too close, with the stiff, plastic look of old shows like Reboot.
Part of that is because the characters mouths and faces don't move, so it gives the impression that everyone is wearing a mask. The main characters have a few different mouth shapes, and sometimes characters will close one or both eyes, but otherwise, you're watching passive faces read out overdramatic lines. That effect is especially jarring with characters like the bully with a wide, toothy grin that you meet in the game's opening. He always has the same wide-mouthed grin, even when he's angry or surprised, and it's endlessly distracting.
The other problem with the cutscenes is something that should be a positive for the remake--this version adds fully voiced dialogue for everything, from the cut-scenes to the the ancillary dialogue of all the villagers. But at least in this preview build, it's not very good. The spoken lines draw attention to the sometimes weak writing and odd translation choices (why would you say you need a "weapon" to cut through bushes to get to town?). But the voice directing is just mediocre. There is one bright aspect to this, however; in the game's settings you can turn on Japanese voice acting at any time. It's still not great, but it is an improvement over the English cast and a really nice additional feature.
Another welcome option is the ability to change the game's music from the remake's arrangements to the original 16-bit soundtrack. To the game's credit, the re-arranged soundtrack is fantastic, but the original score still holds up beautifully, throughout the game's early hours.
The sound and graphics see the biggest changes from the original, and although those options feel mostly locked-in at this point, there are some other elements that I hope have time for minor tweaks before the game's full release. The equipment screen has been altered in the remake into something much more intuitive, but when you're buying armor from merchants you're still given no indication whether or not you already own a piece of equipment, who has what equipped, or whether the item you're looking at is is any better for your party. In addition, consumables still have no description, so you also have to buy and use something just to find out what it does, and several items have very steep price tags for such trial-and-error shenanigans. This final omission is particularly odd since the remake adds a Guide option to the menu. But this extra info is limited to just characters, weapons, and enemies, and even there it just gives you a closer look at the models; there are no additional descriptions.
Combat is more complex in the remake, though it needs some modifications to make it more consistent. For example, in the original Secret of Mana, your one major sword attack was simply a wide, sweeping blade arc. In the remake, you can alternate between that same wide swing or a forward jab, but sometimes even when you're standing still and expecting to execute a wide arc swing, your character throws out a thrust instead (the pattern seems to be two big arc swings followed by a thrust, regardless of whether you're moving the analog stick or not). It's better to have control over what kind of attacks you'll throw out than to feel like your character might do something unexpected.
And one minor (but very missed) element not included in the remake is how the the original Secret of Mana indicates when you're back at 100% for an attack. In the combat system, there's a quickly replenishing stamina gauge; you can throw out a flurry of attacks, but each blow you land before getting back to 100% is substantially lower in power. Both versions of the game have an audible ding when you return to full strength, but the SNES version also made your character flash slightly until you were at 100%. It's such a small difference, but it made knowing when to attack much clearer, and let you focus your attention on your character and enemies rather pulling you away to look at the stamina gauge.
But beyond that lack of attack consistency and the flashing indicator, combat is better in the remake. You can switch between party members with a tap of the directional pad. The game has added a customizable hot button for quickly using items--you can set a restorative piece of candy to R1 or R2 for a quick pick-me-up without completely pausing battle. And the drop-in, drop-out local multiplayer works just as well as it did back when I was a kid.
The Secret of Mana remake isn't out until February of next year, so there's still plenty of time for refinement from the preview build that I played. And while there are some genuine improvements from the original, there are also a few weird missteps that make it difficult to recommend its predecessor--especially when the original is readily available on the SNES classic. But we'll be keeping a close eye on this version as it progresses. If nothing else, the remake holds a lot of promise for a future of 16-bit remakes done right.

Black Friday is upon us. The annual shopping bonanza is coming up on Friday, and one of the games that will be on sale is Blizzard's hero shooter Overwatch. The Game of the Year Edition, which contains extra cosmetic items, is going to be about half-off.
Walmart appears to have the best deal this year, offering it on PS4 and Xbox One for only $29. Best Buy, Target, and GameStop will sell the shooter for $30. If you're OK going without a disc, the well-received game is discounted to $30 on the Xbox Store and PlayStation Store. You can get that deal right now if you can't or don't want to wait.

Black Friday is almost here. It's so close. One of the games that will be discounted nicely this year is Middle-earth: Shadow of War, which was only just released a month ago. If you've been on the fence and waiting for a price drop, you won't be without options.
GameStop appears to have the best deal this year, offering the sequel on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for just $25. Right behind that is Walmart, which will have the game for $29, while Best Buy, Target, and Toys R Us are offering it for $30.

Shadow of War, a sequel to 2014's Shadow of Mordor, was released at the end of October for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

It's almost Black Friday. The annual shopping bonanza is coming up this Friday, November 25, and there are going to be quite a lot of video game deals to be had. One game marked down nicely is Ubisoft's newly released Assassin's Creed Origins on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The ambitious, open-world game set in Ancient Egypt launched on October 27 behind a mostly positive critical reception. Best Buy and Target will have the title for only $35 on Black Friday, while Toys R Us will offer the game for $40. Meanwhile, GameStop will offer a discount on the game + Season Pass, cutting it down to $70. The Ubisoft Store's Black Friday PC game sale is now underway, dropping the computer version to $40.
While you have to wait until Black Friday for those deals, the Xbox and PlayStation Stores are selling Origins right now for only $42. If you're OK without a disc and want to play right now, that's a nice option to have.
A new Origins update released last week squashed some bugs and made other tweaks to the experience; here are the patch notes. You can check out a complete list of Assassin's Creed: Origins deals for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One below. We'll continue to update this as more Black Friday ads are revealed.

The Ubisoft Store's Black Friday sale is now underway and drops the PC version to $40, while Steam's sale drops it to $45. Given that the game only just came out in October, those are some pretty sweet deals.
Like its predecessor, The Stick of Truth, Fractured but Whole puts players in the role of the New Kid, who moves into South Park and joins a superhero team with Cartman and other South Park mainstays. GameSpot's Fractured But Whole review scored the game an 8/10. Reviewer Miguel Concepcion said, "It's an accomplishment that this game will wholly entertain devoted fans while delivering a heap of jokes that won't fly over the heads of casual viewers."

Black Friday 2017 is right around the corner, and that means tons of sale prices to be had on video game consoles, accessories, and software. Even very recent releases that just came out--things like Need for Speed Payback, Assassin's Creed Origins, and Call of Duty: WWII--will be on sale. Another one of fall's biggest games, NBA 2K18, will also enjoy some steep discounts at a number of retailers.
Based on the ads that have been released so far, GameStop will offer the best price for Xbox One and PS4: It'll be $27 there. If you're planning on shopping elsewhere, you'll still potentially get it for a price in that neighborhood; Walmart will sell it for $29, while it'll go for $30 at Target and Best Buy. Toys R Us will offer it for $35. If you're interested in Virtual Currency, the microtransaction currency used in the game, Best Buy will sell 200,000 VC ($50's worth) for $40.
On the digital side, the Xbox Store's Black Friday sale has begun, but only for Xbox Live Gold members. It can be purchased from there for $42; non-Gold members will gain access to the sale on November 21. Similarly, a PlayStation Store Black Friday sale has started for PS Plus members that will go live for non-members on November 21. NBA 2K18 is on sale for $42 on PSN for Plus subscribers. The PC version is also available for that price on Steam.
If you're wondering whether this year's basketball sim is worth picking up, you can read our full NBA 2K18 review. Seth Macy awarded it an 8/10 and said, "This year's entry is incredible in so many ways, from graphics, to soundtrack, to the different modes and ways to play hoops. It becomes clear early on that the fastest and easiest way to progress is by spending real money, slightly marring an otherwise tremendous experience."
You can check out a complete list of NBA 2K18 deals for PS4 and Xbox One below. We'll continue to update this as more Black Friday ads are revealed. Amazon, for instance, has still yet to announce anything, so there's plenty more to come. You can also check out all of our other Black Friday coverage through the links at the bottom of this post.
Only one week remains until Black Friday 2017, which means you'll soon be able to find a ton of discounts on video games, consoles, and accessories across all platforms. That's also true for 3DS, which will see a number of its recent and older releases go on sale, including the mainline Pokemon series.
The newest Pokemon titles, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, launch one week ahead of the big shopping day, and while there won't be any notable deals on those games at major retailers this Black Friday, you'll be able to find some nice discounts on the series' previous 3DS installments. Based on the ads that have been released, GameStop will have the best offer for those still looking to pick up Pokemon X and Y or Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Pre-owned versions of those games will be available for $20 apiece, or you can pick up three of them for $40--effectively netting you one of the games for free.
Best Buy will also have discounts on Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. Each title will cost $20; however, there won't be an additional offer as is the case with GameStop, so if you're looking to pick up more than one version, that remains your best choice. Target, meanwhile, will have doorbuster deals on Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire for $25 each.
While Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon won't be on sale, you'll be able to find discounts on the original Pokemon Sun and Moon versions at some retailers. Both Best Buy and Walmart will sell the two titles for $29 each. That's a good price if you've yet to pick up one of the seventh generation titles and you're not interested in the new features and Pokemon in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
You can check out the complete list of Pokemon deals for 3DS below. We'll continue to update this as more Black Friday ads are revealed. You can also find all of our other Black Friday 2017 coverage and roundups through the links at the bottom of this story.

It's almost Black Friday, that wonderful time of the year when seemingly everything is on sale. This of course includes video games. And if you're looking for the newest Call of Duty game, numerous retailers will offer Call of Duty: WWII for a discount next week.
Based on what we've seen so far in terms of Black Friday ads, it appears Best Buy will have Call of Duty: WWII for the cheapest, offering it for $40. Walmart ($43), Target and Toys R Us ($45), and GameStop ($50) are also discounting the game on Black Friday. Those deals may not sound so great, but for a game that only just came out a few weeks ago, and one that is selling quite well at full price, any discount is notable. Black Friday Xbox Store and PlayStation Store sales are now underway for Xbox Live Gold and PS Plus members respectively, dropping the WWII Digital Deluxe Edition to $90. Those digital sales will open to everyone on November 21.
Call of Duty: WWII is getting strong reviews, with GameSpot scoring it a 9/10. It returns to the franchise's origins in World War II, beginning with a D-Day mission. Some of the actors featured in the game include Josh Duhamel from Transformers and Kingdom's Jonathan Tucker. And in multiplayer, that means no more super-powers or exosuits, but instead boots-on-the-ground only. The game also includes a Nazi Zombies mode that we quite enjoyed, along with a brand-new, larger-scale multiplayer experience called War.
You can check out a complete list of Call of Duty deals for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One below. We'll continue to update this as more Black Friday ads are revealed.

Black Friday 2017 is right around the corner, and we've gotten a look at the deals many retailers will offer this year. And while it initially seemed like there wouldn't be any deals for Sony's 4K-capable PlayStation 4 Pro, GameStop's ad has revealed it will be on sale for $350. The deal is available right now. [Update:Walmart is all offering the same $350 price.]
This is your best bet for getting a PS4 Pro at a discount this year. Your only other options are the regular $400 retail price at other stores or $450 for the special-edition Destiny 2 and Star Wars Battlefront II models, barring any surprise offers we haven't seen yet.
If you're not sure whether you should make the jump to the Pro, you can read our full PS4 Pro review. Author Jimmy Thang writes, "If you have a 4K HDR TV and are looking to buy a console, I’d definitely recommend the PS4 Pro. Even if you have a 1080p TV and are looking to buy a PlayStation, I’d still lean more toward the Pro. Yes, it does cost $100 more than the Slim model, but you get more ports, twice the storage space, more future-proof hardware in the event that you ever decide to get a 4K TV, and some games can look slightly better at 1080p."
For a complete roundup, see our full list of PS4 Black Friday deals. There are sure to be even more deals to come, while others may be unlisted for the time being, so check back with us in the lead up to Black Friday. For more, check out retailer-specific deals breakdowns through the links below.
First up, there's some good deals on PS4 consoles, including one that bundles together a 500 GB PS4 Slim and copies of FIFA 18, Gran Turismo Sport, and Knowledge is Power for £200. Then there's a 1 TB PS4 Pro bundle that comes with FIFA 18, GT Sport, and a 2 month Now TV entertainment pass for £200.
Finally, Nintendo Switch deals were looking good, but many of them have now sold out. Game was offering a Nintendo Switch console bundle--including the device itself plus Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle--for £280, but that and another that included Super Mario Odyssey are both now out of stock. However, it seems other bundles including identical items for slightly more money are indeed in stock. Check out Game's website for up-to-date availability. In terms of cheap Switch games, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is down to £30, while LA Noire is £33 and Rayman Legends is £25.

Newegg has launched its Black Friday sale that'll be going on until Saturday night (November 25, 11:59pm PT). Over 3,000 items are part of the sale which range from video cards and processors to game consoles and headsets. With so much stuff discounted, we wanted to highlight some of the standouts. Take note that some of these items will sell out and temporarily be out of stock as the Black Friday sale goes on.
First thing to highlight are video cards. With their recent fluctuation in price, it's hard to find good deals, but a few sales on cards are worth considering. You can get your hands on an EVGA GTX 1060 (3GB, single-fan) for just $180, the Zotac Mini GTX 1060 (6GB) for $240 or a MSI GTX 1060 (6GB) for $250. For those set on AMD cards, look to the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 570 at $210 or the MSI Gaming X RX 580 at $240, both of which have 4GB of VRAM. At the high end, Gigabyte's GTX 1080 at $500 tends to be a good deal considering that card's MSRP is $550.
Great deals are abound for processors and AMD fans should be hyped up to upgrade. The quad-core Ryzen 5 1500X is only $165 and the eight-core Ryzen 7 1700 is at $270. Overclockers might want to look to the Ryzen 7 1800X that's just $320. Those that want to build or upgrade a workstation PC should look at the 16-core Ryzen Threadripper 1950X for $800. Intel users on the Z170/Z270 chipset can get the best consumer-level CPU in the Core i7-7700K for $290.
Memory is the third key component to a gaming PC and while prices have remained relatively high, a few good sales standout. G.Skill is offering 8GB Ripjaws V DDR4 RAM for $70 and dual-channel 8GB Ripjaws V DDR4 RAM for $75. Those on an older platform can look to 8GB of Patriot Viper DDR3 RAM priced at $51. For higher capacity, look to 16GB of ADATA XPG DDR4 RAM at $137; and if you want to get fancy, 16GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB DDR4 RAM for $160 should be on your radar.
You can't forget about storage drives in a gaming PC.

If you need higher volume storage, the 5TB Toshiba X300 HDD is $120, 6TB WD Black HDD is $200, and the huge 12TB Seagate BarraCuda Pro is $460 (all three run at 7200 RPM).

The LG 27MU58 (4K, FreeSync) at $300 is the best value for a 4K monitor at the moment.

If you don't want to go through the hassle of piecing a PC together, plenty of great pre-built gaming PCs are also available. Every rig here comes with Windows 10 Home (64-bit) installed as well. At the low-end, CyberpowerPC's Game Master 2009 (Ryzen 5 1400, 8GB RAM, GTX 1050) can be snagged for $590.

You can see a full rundown of the band's discounted items here on their label's website. To date, EA has not partnered with the band Origin, which seems like a missed opportunity.

Not content to just let retailers provide discounts on its own products, Ubisoft has launched its own Black Friday sale ahead of the big shopping day.

Steam is expected to do the same on November 22. You can check out all of our Black Friday coverage through the links below.
It seems that Black Friday starts earlier and earlier each year and PC hardware vendor Micro Center is joining the festivities. While not every deal is worth jumping on, there are definitely some standout sales. Micro Center is also a brick-and-mortar store, but for your convenience, we're highlighting the deals that are available for shipping. This includes solid-state drives, hard drives, pre-built PCs, power supplies, monitors, and peripherals.
In terms of gaming mice, you can pick up the Logitech's Pro G for $50 or G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB mouse for $60. Logitech has wireless peripherals available for cheap, like the MK270 wireless keyboard and mouse combo for $20, the K400 wireless keyboard with a touchpad for $20, and the MK550 Wave wireless combo for $60. Micro Center does offer peripherals from Razer, but aren't part of Black Friday savings.

A range of pre-built PCs are on sale, from the low-spec to the high-end. So if you're not building your own, you have options. The Acer Aspire with an Intel Core i5-7400, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive is going for $400, but you will have to get your own video card since this system runs on integrated graphics. Another cheap low-end system, CyberPower Gamer Ultra, is currently $500; it comes with an AMD FX-6300 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and an RX 550 video card. As for the high-end option that we can recommend, the PowerSpec G428 that's on sale fore $1700 comes everything you'd want in a gaming PC: an Intel Core i7-7700K CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 500GB SSD, 2TB hard drive, and the beefy GTX 1080 Ti video card.

If you prefer more screen space over high-refresh rate, then the Acer K272HL 1080p 27-inch monitor for $120 should be on your radar. Say you want to go even cheaper, the AOC E2429SWHE 23.6-inch 1080p monitor is just $100 now. For more on monitors, check out our roundup of the best 4K, 1440p, and 1080p monitors for Black Friday.

The PowerSpec G314 pre-built PC sports an Intel Core i5-7600K, GTX 1070 video card, 16GB of RAM, and a 480GB SSD, all for $1000; you'd be hard-pressed to build a PC for cheaper with the same specs.

Currently, this is your best bet for getting a PS4 Pro at a discount. Your only other options are the regular $400 retail price at other stores or $450 for the same bundle as Amazon but with Star Wars Battlefront II included. GameStop's ad did reveal the store will selling the console for $350 on Black Friday itself, but as far as we know that is without a game included. In the UK, meanwhile, Sony has officially discounted PS4 Pro consoles for Black Friday. Until the end of Monday, November 27, PS4 Pro bundles containing Call of Duty: WWII and either FIFA 18 or Gran Turismo Sport will cost £300. Check out the Amazon US deal here.
If you're not sure whether you should make the jump to the Pro, you can read our full PS4 Pro review. Author Jimmy Thang said, "If you have a 4K HDR TV and are looking to buy a console, I’d definitely recommend the PS4 Pro. Even if you have a 1080p TV and are looking to buy a PlayStation, I’d still lean more toward the Pro. Yes, it does cost $100 more than the Slim model, but you get more ports, twice the storage space, more future-proof hardware in the event that you ever decide to get a 4K TV, and some games can look slightly better at 1080p."
For a complete roundup, see our full list of PS4 Black Friday deals. There are sure to be even more deals to come, while others may be unlisted for the time being, so check back with us in the lead up to Black Friday. For more, check out retailer-specific deals breakdowns through the links below.
