Checkpoint: Black Friday 2015 Post-Mortem Edition

Black Friday is essentially done and dusted. The sales are out and while it’s conceivable that something may catch my eye on Cyber Monday, I believe I’m done shopping. So what did I buy? Not many games; actually more home appliances and other non-games than I imagine.

  • Nest Thermostat 3.0
  • Black & Decker Platinum BDH2000FL 20-Volt Max Lithium Ion Flex Vacuum
  • Logitech Harmony 650
  • Aveeno Hand Lotion
  • The Order: 1886
  • Axiom Verge
  • Pixelmator
  • Puma El Ace Core Shoes
  • Puma Gamechanger T-Shirt

An solid haul. I’m a little bit perturbed by Puma.ca’s last second inclusion of taxes & fees but it’s ultimately my fault for not paying attention to the final price. (I mistakenly believed it was USD to CAD conversion.)

I wanted to buy other little knick knacks here and there but with Boxing Day looming a month away, it was best to wait.

I finished Grow Home. I recommend it but not on the PlayStation 4, the framerate issues are nauseating.

I’m still playing Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s multiplayer and now that I found some GAF people play with, I can see myself continuing for quite some time. Objective games like Domination are just more pleasant to play with players who are committed in capturing objectives, covering flanks and move in numbers.
