Getcher credit cards ready, folks. It's time.

"All RIFT Store mounts will be offered at 25% off from 12:01am PST Wednesday, November 23rd, to 11:59pm PST Tuesday, November 29th."
Black Desert is a Korean-born MMORPG whose US servers are run from The Netherlands, but don't think they'll be missing a good sale: Beginning tomorrow, "players can take 50% off all Black Desert Online game packages, which now start at $4.99 / €4,99. Items in the cash shop will also be heavily discounted, with up to 80% off on select items rotating in and out once per hour."

You can use your Store Credit toward additional purchases (which includes bundles, bundle upgrades, add-on items, and player owned town upgrades)."
Riders of Icarus is celebrating its first Black Friday with cash shop discounts and shoulder kittens, which pretty much need to be a thing in every game ever. Expect more deals out of the game every day for the next few days.
