    • While we've seen quite a few doorbuster Nintendo Switch game deals for Black Friday, discounts on 2020 exclusives have been less common. Over the past day or so, however, retailers have started to offer modest deals on recent releases such as Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (this deal has sadly ended, though). And now you can also save on Paper Mario: The Origami King at Amazon. Normally $60, the charming role-playing game is down to $50 for a limited time. As with most Amazon discounts, there's no telling how long this deal will be available. If you're looking to pick up The Origami King for yourself or someone on your holiday shopping list, you should grab it as soon as possible. This deal ties the lowest price we've seen for Paper Mario: The Origami King since it launched over the summer, and it's been a while since we've spotted it on sale.

    • Persona 4 Golden is one of the most beloved RPGs of its era, but many fans of the series didn't get to play it back when it was a PlayStation Vita-exclusive. Today, the Steam version of Persona 4 Golden is only $12.79 at Fanatical. However, this is a one-day-only flash deal, and less than 24 hours remain to claim it. For comparison, Persona 4 Golden is usually priced at $20 on Steam, but it's currently discounted to $16 in Steam's Black Friday sale. Purchasing the game at Fanatical will get you a Steam key delivered via email, similar to other key sellers like Humble and Green Man Gaming, so it's worth saving yourself a few extra bucks and snagging Persona 4 Golden there today.

    • Over the past few days, rumors have circulated around the gaming industry that Marvel's Avengers sold well below Square Enix's expectations, which led to a disappointing financial quarter for the publisher. Now, an official transcript of a Square Enix investor briefing confirms that the game underperformed, which resulted in the publisher's HD Games division posting an overall loss. "The HD Games sub-segment posted an operating loss as initial sales of Marvel’s Avengers were lower than we had expected and unable to completely offset the amortization of the game’s development costs," a portion of the briefing reads. "In the second half of the fiscal year, we hope to make up for slow initial sales by offering ample additional content to grow our sales." In a Q&A, one investor estimated the operating loss of the HD Games division in Q2 of this year as around 7 billion yen, which is roughly $67 million. The company attributed the game's slow sales in part to marketing delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. When asked about the volatility of the HD Games division, Square Enix replied that it considers the totality of its Digital Entertainment segment rather than the HD Games division in isolation by using stable income from MMOs and mobile games to offset potential losses of big-budget games like Avengers.

    • The Black Friday deals keep rolling in as the weekend progresses, and the latest deal available at Amazon should be of interest to those browsing the Black Friday Nintendo eShop or Xbox Live sales. Though those sales are offering steep discounts on some great digital games, you can save even more money if you take advantage of a Black Friday deal on gift cards. Right now, Nintendo eShop gift cards and Xbox gift cards are available for 10% off at Amazon. (For those who prefer to shop at Best Buy, the deal is available there as well.) Combine that with a Black Friday game deal, and you're looking at some very nice savings. Your wallet will thank you. While 10% off doesn't sound like very much, the savings definitely add up, especially if you mostly buy games digitally. The gift cards are available at multiple values, so you can select the right amount for you. The deal means you can essentially get $99 of eShop store credit for $89 or $50 of Xbox credit for $45. These are digital codes, so you'll be able to redeem them right away. The Nintendo eShop vouchers can't be used to buy a Nintendo Switch, but you can use it to pick up some of the recent releases for the hybrid console. That includes Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Pikmin 3 Deluxe Edition, or just a handful of indie hits like Hades and Paradise Killer. Combined with Nintendo's own eShop Black Friday sale, you can pick up some great deals. Not all denominations are on sale, so you should make sure you're getting the discount before checking out.

    • The PlayStation Plus Collection gives PS5 owners access to some of the biggest PS4 games as part of their standard PS Plus subscription, but you cannot claim the games via PS4. That led to a market of PS5 owners offering to sell access to these games via temporary guest logins on their console, but it appears this practice is resulting in bans. Here's how it works in a nutshell: PS5 owner offers to claim PS Plus Collection games for a PS4 owner. PS4 owner gives them their login details so the PS5 owner can claim the games. PS5 owner signs back out of the account after claiming games. PS4 owner changes their password. As it turns out, Sony isn't a big fan of players doing this. According to VGC, Hong Kong PlayStation 5 players who have sold access to the games--as well as the PS4 players who purchased them--are having their accounts banned. The bans on the accounts don't appear to be permanent, but the PS5 consoles themselves can no longer connect to PSN. Given that online access is required for nearly everything in modern gaming, including finishing installations of disc-based games, in many cases, this essentially renders the PS5 systems useless.

    • Assassin's Creed Valhalla features a dynamic world to explore, filled with all manner of danger and mystery. If you're looking to start a fight and make some coin in the process, the Thousand Eyes merchants are happy to hand out contracts that will reward players with Opals that can be used to buy rare gear and exotic cosmetics. Many of these contracts revolve around a simple formula of being sent to assassinate an unlucky target: one who is usually near your location. A new bug around these contracts has risen up though, and it's allowing players to easily bank some Opals in the process. In the Ravensthorpe settlement that Eivor calls home, you're able to grab contracts from the head of the Thousand Eyes, Reda. The bug that players are encountering is that the nearby training dummies being marked as the guilty culprits that Eivor needs to kill, each one having committed a particular crime that needs to be punished with a lethal injection of steel to the neck.

    • Previous vid had audio issue so this one should be better 
    • Ubisoft has opened up Phase 2 of Title Update 12 for The Division 2 on the PC Public Test Server until Wednesday, December 2. The new phase will bring about a number of changes, including buffing some weapons and addressing bugs. Check out the patch notes below. The PDR assault rifle saw a damage buff to make it a competitive option when stacked against other assault rifles. The Exotics Bighorn and Capacitor have had their magazines increased, while the Exotic Scorpio saw some PvE and PvP debuffs to the duration of its status effects. Title Update 12 also addresses a host of bugs. This includes general optimizations, fixes for high-difficulty missions at level 30 that weren't dropping appropriately-leveled gear, adjustments for challenges within The Summit, and other weapon balances for the Scorpio.
