An RPG Fan's Guide To Black Friday 2013
You want an RPG? It's probably on sale.
11.28.13 - 9:54 PM

So you want to Christmas shop for the RPG fan in your life. Or maybe just yourself. Or a little of both! While Black Friday incites all kinds of in-store insanity, thankfully you can take advantage of most gaming deals online (and in some cases, that's your only choice). While there's great deals for all kinds of games and systems, as usual, we will stick with those that fall under our coverage - after all, it is already quite the lengthy list.

Many of these sales have already begun, while some won't take effect until tomorrow (or midnight tonight). Similarly, some deals are tomorrow only, while others last as late as Monday or Tuesday. Below in order are online, US-specific and Canada-specific sales.
