Toys R Us Black Friday Video Game Deals 2017: PS4, Switch, Xbox One, 3DS Games On Sale

It took a bit longer than some other retailers, but Toys R Us has finally given us a look at its Black Friday 2017 deals. The retailer’s ad has been released, and while its focus is on toys, as you’d expect, there are also quite a few deals to be had across PS4 and Xbox One, as well as some for Nintendo Switch and 3DS.

In terms of hardware, we’re seeing similar offers to elsewhere. The Switch console itself is not listed, nor is Xbox One X or PS4 Pro. However, the older models of those two consoles are on sale. You can pick up a 1 TB PS4 for $200, or a 500 GB Xbox One S for $190. In both cases, you won’t get any bundled games. The LucidSound LS20 wired headset, which works with both consoles, will be on sale for 50% off, dropping its price to $40. Select controllers for Microsoft and Sony boxes are $20 off, bringing the cheapest options to $40.

A number of games are on sale as well, although frustratingly, the ad only lists the amount you’ll save–not the actual price. In our comprehensive list of deals below, we’ve calculated the sale price using the currently listed MSRP on the Toys R Us website. In some cases, this results in prices that are markedly higher than what the competition is offering, while other prices are roughly in line with what you’ll find at places like Best Buy and Walmart. In other words, some of the actual prices may end up being lower than what we’ve listed, but you can at least get a sense of what the possible costs will be. None are likely to end up higher than what we’ve laid out.

Among the prices we’ve fairly confident in, Call of Duty: WWII, the just-released shooter, will be on sale for $45. Destiny 2, NBA 2K18, and WWE 2K18 will all be $35, while South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Forza Motorsport 7, and Assassin’s Creed Origins will be $40. Persona 5 will drop to $30, as will Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Madden NFL 18, FIFA 18, and Grand Theft Auto V.

You can find the full list of games, consoles, and accessories in Toys R Us’s flyer below or on its website. The ad doesn’t make it clear if it will have more games on sale than those included. Also of note is the special green Zelda 2DS, which is launching on Black Friday at select retailers, is not shown, so you may need to head elsewhere if you’re interested.

Black Friday is upon us, and that means a ton of deals on everything you could want. As expected, retailers have released their deals ahead of the big day, like Best Buy. With the doors opening at 5 PM on Thanksgiving evening–in some states–the retailer is offering up some big deals for TVs, movies, and more.

As far as TVs go, Best Buy has a 50-inch Sharp LED 4K television with Roku for $179.99. Normally, the television costs $500 and is currently on sale for $400 on the retailer’s website.

There is also some pretty decent deals on 4K players, with the most notable being the LG 4K player for $100. It’s worth noting that most of the TVs sold on Black Friday aren’t of the highest quality, so it may not be the best choice for your 4K gaming. You can check out television reviews on our sister site CNET to see if these deals are right for you.

If you’re looking to add to your movie collection, the retailer has a ton of movies on sale, many of which come with a digital copy as well.

Best Buy also has movie collections listed, but the retailer does not have the Black Friday prices listed.

Those who are eager to start shopping early can take advantage of a pre-Black Friday sale that is already underway. While the discounts are not as steep, in addition to the games that are on sale right now, there are sales on TVs, gaming PCs, streaming devices, home theater equipment, and a variety of movies and TV shows.

Marvel Heroes Shutdown Escalates; New Open World RPG From Forza Horizon Dev! – GS News Roundup

Jess McDonell rejoins Dan Crowd on today’s GS News, and although it’s Thanksgiving, there’s still news to talk about! Here’s what we cover today:

To The Moon Sequel Gets Release Date

To The Moon has been called one of the saddest games of all time, and now, it’s getting a sequel called Finding Paradise. A strangely humorous new trailer for it was released along with a launch date, which is very very soon!

Forza Horizon Devs Recruiting For Open World RPG

How good was Forza Horizon 3? Very good. Now, the developers behind the open-world racing game are getting out of their cars (presumably) and gearing up to develop an open-world RPG. They’ve hired a bunch of developers who have experience with some pretty major titles, like Grand Theft Auto V and Metal Gear Solid V. That sounds pretty exciting, so get all the details in today’s episode.

Marvel Heroes Shutdown Moves Forward

And in some pretty crappy Thanksgiving news, a number of developers and obtained documents from Marvel Heroes developer Gazillion entertainment have suggested that the previously announced shutdown of the game, due to happen at the end of the year, is in fact happening much sooner. That’s on top of the news that Gazillion has terminated the bulk of its workforce without any severance pay or other owed benefits. Tune in to find out all the details, and spare a thought for all the developers affected.

What did you think about today’s news? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and we’ll see you tomorrow!

How Far Cry 5 Handles Cults And Small-Town America

Of all the types of American regions featured in games, the one least explored is the country’s vast open rural landscapes. It’s one of the intriguing aspects of Far Cry 5’s Montana, a sense of anticipation in exploring its diverse terrain as you take on a malicious cult that has claimed the land as their own. Based on our most recent interview with creative director Dan Hay, we learned more about the nuances of rural America as envisioned by Ubisoft Montreal and how this land in conflict promises to deliver a layered experience driven by the allies and enemies you meet.

GameSpot: So from what I’ve gathered so far, The Father’s siblings are managing the map’s various regions controlled by the cult. But it seems like you’re also giving the player that Far Cry style of freedom of focusing on one region at a time or allowing them just slowly picking away at each one.

Dan Hay: Without going into micro detail, I think the key thing for us was to create story bubbles, and opportunities to discover things. Sometimes when we’re authoring a story like this, it seems like all of the characters of the world are cursed with all the knowledge on Earth. You walk to them, you ask them a question, and they seem to know everything that’s going on. I like the idea of meeting characters in the world that don’t really have a clue what’s going on, and they’re only aware of what’s going on in terms of what they can see in front of them. They can be speaking based on what’s going on in the north, but they don’t know or they’re hearing something else that’s going down in the south. What that does is create friction. We want to give fish-hook opportunities to the player. These NPC’s friends have been taken from them, they don’t know where those people are. They’re stuck in the middle of the world. They don’t have the knowledge of a lot of what’s going on. And yes, you’ll have the opportunity to jump between regions controlled by the cult. You can go and meet John, and do everything in John’s area. At any time, you can head up to Jacob and Faith’s region.

I guess that’s one of the drawbacks of a cult. That no matter how organized, they probably don’t have the wherewithal or the resources to actually fully control the land. Are they all relying on walkie-talkies?

We did a little bit of work to figure this out. How do these communications tools work? How far would it go? I think it’s somewhere in between 12 and 25 miles, depending on what’s around you. It’s believable for us that if that first moment when things go south, that the cult is getting on CB radios and they’re going, “Hey guys. This is what you need to do.”

But not everybody knows what’s going on at the same time, and that creates an interesting series of events. For a while, this allows you to fly under their radar. Then, once you begin to get this notoriety, you get to build this resistance, and the cult turn their attention more towards you.

No Caption Provided

Do you think you can probably delay getting The Father’s attention if you spread your accomplishments across all the regions evenly?

That’s an interesting question. The way that I would answer that is if you decide to go into John’s region, and you decide to head directly for the community of resistance fighters, then you go right at the cult, John is going to know who you are really quick. John is going to offer a proportional response against what you do.

If you don’t, if you go out into the world and you smack a bit on John’s area, then you smack a bit on Faith’s, and then go back to Jacob’s, there’s definitely a period where you can do more and maybe fly under the radar a bit. It’s not the intention of the game to be able to provide all those opportunities, but it’s something that can happen just as far as the way the game is set up.

It’s interesting that this isn’t a cult that actually has had multiple generations rooted in the Hope County. Is this approach of buying up cheap land typical?

I don’t know if it’s typical, but it’s valid. We wanted to be able to make it so that the cult went to this place, chosen specifically because it’s remote, and because there’s an opportunity for them to be able to own it and take over the community. We didn’t feel like it needed to be something that had existed for a long time.

I like the idea that The Father had this epiphany when he was younger. It wasn’t something that was handed to him from his father. I think if we had made it so that The Father inherited this leadership role, then this isn’t really his cause or it’s something that’s just a belief that’s been passed down. Instead, he was once a relatively average person and then he made the conscious effort based off what he was seeing and what he heard. He chose to remove himself from what you considered to be regular society and moved to this place to build a separate community because he believes the end of times is coming. That makes him much more interesting as a person.

Thinking about the resistance factions of the other Far Crys, would you say that this new set of groups is a little bit more unified despite their diverse backgrounds?

It feels like it could be unified. We’ve created a really interesting set of events where personalities that you meet in Fall’s End may not be the personality types that you meet in previous games. Their motivations for how they push back may not be the same. If you head up north, you’re going to get a completely different group people who are pushing back against Jacob. They may all end up being unified in terms of what they’re doing and how they operate. In terms of what drives them, in terms of how they move, in terms of the resources they have at their disposal, and how prepared they were for this event, they’re completely different.

When you knew you were going to set the game in America, was there ever the thought of a more suburban or urban setting?

I think what’s interesting about Montana was that it had an interesting flavor of a little bit of both. Did we ever have conversations about that? I vaguely remember us talking about different locations. We very quickly stuck with an idea of being in a rural community and making it feel like small town America.

We wanted to put you in a situation that was different and unique. We’ve all driven down those dusty roads in wherever it is that we’re from. We end up going out in the wilderness, and you feel this sense of “Okay. I’m shedding the tapestry of urban, and I’m moving into the wilderness.”

It’s really interesting for us to tell the stories of people that have been cut off for a little while and make their own rules.

No Caption ProvidedNo Caption Provided

When you think about the different types of settings in prior Far Crys, Montana is the furthest thing from the islands Far Cry 3 and I doubt that it’ll match the verticality of Far Cry 4. What would you say is the one aspect of this new map that sums it up?

Maybe it’s a good thing that I’m struggling to come up with just one thing. What’s really interesting is when we were making Far Cry Primal, we did those Beast Master quests, and we’re like, “Whoa. Okay. Hold on. There’s something really cool here.” So, that says “You know what? For Far Cry 5, let’s explore the relationship with coop AI.” And that’s what lead to Boomer. And then, let’s start talking about guns-for-hire and people that you bring in with their unique personalities and abilities.

What we do is like throwing a rock in the water and see how it ripples and see what we want to make it, and I think that we’re evolving through each of these franchises. But I cannot come up with just one thing. When I look back on what I was doing in Far Cry 4, I was doing a lot. I was wingsuiting, sneaking, sniping, and you’re right, verticality was a big thing, and it felt like I was always attacking from above or I was stealthily going through the space. There’s just a ton of stuff that I can do in Far Cry 5. I’ve struggled to come up with just one experience.

What is the most inviting aspect of this rural setting that will discourage players from habitually using fast travel as often as possible? I imagine you’ll want them to soak in the land, so to speak.

One of the things that we as a team had a conversation about is that when you spend time in the States, there’s something magical about getting inside a muscle car and just driving down the road. You feel like a badass. Something as simple as that or getting into a cult vehicle and hearing the sounds of the station that they play and all the hymns that are playing. It’s just something about making the world believable. And so, when I get into a classic car, and I drive down the highway in our version of Montana and I just look at the landscape, it feels very real to me.
