Save on hundreds of top video games in the Epic Games Store Black Friday sale.
I won’t lie. My little fingers are red raw from writing about Black Friday sales, and last night I dreamed of percentage signs. The newsdesk has been particularly quiet this week, and instead, it’s been sales, deals, bargains, and discounts galore.
There’s the Nintendo Switch Cyber Deals sale in North America and Europe. Sony is discounting hundreds of PlayStation 4 games and services. And Microsoft is doing likewise with the Xbox games store and Game Pass. We even covered Stadia’s effort, although that didn’t turn out very well for me.
I wouldn’t mind, but it’s also cost me a fortune. I’ve added at least 12 games added to my pile of shame across various platforms. (I’m sure I will get to Project Cars 3 one day.)
We end the week with an update on the Epic Games Store Black Friday sale. There are savings of up to 90% available on a variety of titles, ranging from indie gems to AAA blockbusters.
Personal favourites include the finely-tuned turn-based strategy game Into the Breach, intergalactic head-scratcher Outer Wilds, and the meditative soul cleanser that is Tetris Effect. Some recent releases also get price cuts. Star Wars: Squadrons, Tony Hawk’s Pro-Skater 1+2, and Watch Dogs: Legion are all worth a look.
The Epic Games Store Black Friday sale runs until December 3, 2020. Here are some more recommendations.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
