Love it!...SO COOL...Challenging and fun!...I think that pays homage to a dead era of gaming where saves and hand holding tutorials are cast in the void and your mind is stuck to choose its own path, play style, progression and interpretation of how the game is meant to be played....i got this game at black friday sale and its great for its price.
Once an ancient and noble city, Yharnam has become a twisted ghost of its former self. An incomprehensible endemic illness flooded the streets and ravaged the population, leaving behind only deranged mobs and creatures too bizarre and frightening to imagine.

So good...good buy...A Good Challenge...This game, much like other Souls entries, is difficult and will be hard for newcomers to properly grasp what to do but thankfully From Software is forgiving to new players and gives them enough insight to see how to play the game and learn from trial and error.

Rich storylines and vibrant graphics make Dark Souls III: Day One Edition an exciting addition to the Dark Souls collection.
5 Stars...It's Ok...Very challenging, yet fun....As a rule when using it in battle it is a pretty straight forward straight, back, side to side in avoiding attacks and firing attack type thing with some bonus weapons you choose to upgrade throughout the game (your given all of them in the story in the end)....1 player, but Black Friday 39.9 deal was super, quality was great
The shadows are his home and keeping Gotham's citizens safe is his sustenance. Darkness envelops his every move and his legend lives in the whispers of each passerby. Known by many names — the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, Batman — this man lives to protect. But by pitting himself against the criminals of a city, he has only made his laundry list of powerful enemies grow. One after another, a new and nefarious threat has risen up and one after another Batman succeeded in bringing them down. But what happens when those menacing masterminds join forces?

The wind blows freely down the corridor of what was once a canyon of skyscrapers populated by million-dollar businesses, employees in suits and citizens on cell phones. A constant stream of yellow taxi cabs used to flow steadily down the asphalt streets. Now, Mother Nature has reclaimed what was hers, and vegetation engulfs the massive cities in patches. A modern pandemic outsmarted our civilized medicine, so our cities now lie abandoned, and what's left of the American population is forced to do whatever it takes to survive. Neighbors who were friends, now kill each other for a loaf of bread — or a rifle — whatever they can get their hands on to help them live another day. In this decimated democracy, two individuals join up to work together and attempt a dangerous journey across the country. Will these two be able to survive the trek — or will they be The Last of Us?
Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year awards, The Last of Us plunges you into the future, where a brutal and deadly pandemic has ravaged the landscape of what was the United States for 20 years. A survivor who will do whatever it takes, Joel, has been hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of a heavily fortified, military quarantine zone — but what starts as a simple job, quickly turns into an all-out fight for survival on a brutal trek across the country. Carefully blending elements of survival and action, The Last of Us defines a genre by placing you in the heart of the adventure. Rebuilt to harness the power of the PlayStation 4, The Last of Us Remastered features full 1080p high-definition visuals, higher-resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting and numerous gameplay enhancements to truly showcase the cruelty and stunning environments. Plus, Remastered contains all the DLC for the game, including eight new multiplayer maps in the Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories map packs, as well as the critically acclaimed The Last of Us: Left Behind single-player campaign. Every minute of every hour of every day is a struggle to outlive the next person you encounter — do you have the mental and physical strength to make it?
Not bad...Good Buy...This game is both enjoyable and challenging....I love this game,can't get enough of playing it, the replay value is very high on my list,I love the dark zone and the building of gear sets to maximize damage to foes,I love to catch those that are rogue and melt them,I'm hoping that they open up all of New York that would be awesome (hint,hint Ubisoft)...Bought this for my husband on Black Friday 2016 and he loves it!
Tom Clancy's The Division is a revolutionary next-gen experience that brings the RPG into a modern military setting for the first time. In the wake of a devastating pandemic that sweeps through New York City, basic services fail one by one, and without access to food or
water, the city quickly descends into chaos. As an agent of The Division, you'll specialize, modify, and level up your gear, weapons, and skills to take back New York on your own terms.
Love it....Good FPS...This game is very fun and challenging....So it kind of sucks when you're level 7 and and some other players are like level 24 and almost literally flying around the map with magic powers that can kill players in an instant and have weapons and other special abilities that other players just don't have access to.
Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned our solar system, but it didn't last. Something hit us, knocked us down. The survivors built a city beneath the Traveler, and have begun to explore our old worlds, only to find them filled with deadly foes.
You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Defend the City. Defeat our enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost.
Love it....Good fun...Already known for beautiful game design, fun gameplay, hilarious characters & dialogue, and outstanding graphics, I never thought it was possible for the R&C games to improve on their excellence... but they did it with this reboot....Beautiful graphics, and smooth frame rate, even when the screen is full of enemies, explosions, and coins.(which happens quite frequently.) Great writing that of course includes some of the humor that's known to be in these games....This game is not bad for the price I paid on Black Friday.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is the ultimate 3-games-in-1 experience. In Campaign mode, you must navigate the hot spots of a new Cold War to find your missing brothers. Players can play the campaign cooperatively or solo and are now always connected to the intelligence grid and their fellow operatives during battle. Multiplayer features a new momentum-based chained movement system, allowing players to fluidly move through the environment with finesse, using controlled thrust jumps, slides, and mantling. Black Ops III multiplayer also introduces the new Specialist character system, which allows players to master 9 characters' battle-hardened weapons and abilities through a challenge-based unlock progression system. No Treyarch title would be complete without its signature Zombies offering. "Shadows of Evil" has its own distinct storyline right out of the box, set in the fictional 1940s Morg City, where four particularly troubled individuals — the femme fatale, the magician, the detective, and the boxer — star in this film-noir inspired horror story.
good rpg...But fun...Quests are fun and challenging...Luckily the game gives an awesome glossary to get you up to speed and tons of dialogue options, so I found this a plus(like being dropped into a ballad and finding it more interesting since you don't know the setting or characters, learning while the story is going)....Purchased for brother during Black Friday, he enjoys it - I haven't played it.
No one could possibly imagine that the chaos of today was just the beginning, the start to the dark danger of tomorrow.

Don the sword of Geralt of Rivia once again — but this time, the rise and fall of monarchs and battles with legendary monsters are nearly fond memories compared to the danger you now face. This time, that which matters most and those dearest to your heart are in peril. It's time to embark on your most personal quest yet to save your loved ones and protect the world from an ancient threat.

I loved....Not bad...Very fun and challenging to play....The first two games are certainly more difficult than the third, and in fact, the third feels like it's running out of steam towards the end, with a fairly easy final battle (in Normal mode) that doesn't hold a candle to the run and shoot that is the ending of the 2nd game....It came in the bundle I picked up on Black Friday 2015 for my son, and he loved all three games.

So fun...Not bad...The only littlest smallest complaint I could possibly think of is the stage selection is very small, but with so much to unlock, the coolest of any MK game and some unforgettable fatalities, this game is a must have for fans of MK, fans of fighting games, just all video game fans who don't mind violence....Here are the downsides, which are quite similar to the actual draws I already mentioned: It's still Mortal Kombat It's ridiculously violent and gory Guest characters not particularly interesting unless you're a cult horror movie fan All in all, it's a very solid game....Bought it on black friday...it was a steal...my son loves it

Good buy...great gm...Challenging and worth purchasing...I've got over 12 hours into the game and there is only about 30 minutes worth of gameplay that confused me because of my lack of understanding for the series storyline (so many years since I've played mgs, and I've played all of the console ones.) Overall I feel that this game will win game of the year, it has such in depth gameplay, just upgrading your home base of operations and researching new items and weapons can occupy you for hours....Great Black Friday Deal!
