All the best MMO sales of Black Friday 2018


Fun fact: I live pretty far from my nearest family, so I don’t have to get to go home and partake of the American tradition of stuffing mostly unpalatable food in my face on this holiday weekend.

Ended up getting Project Gorgon after giving the free trial a go . I can’t see there being anything much released next year ( although I do kind of hope Camelot Unchained will see some sort of release ) so I thought why not take the plunge now .


Conan: Exiles is 40% off on Steam for Black Friday, so $24.


I wish i could remember who said this in a thread here but it was something along the lines of if the internet hates it that much, its gotta be good and for me this statement has rung true yet again, first Fallout 76 amazing game best Fallout title to date, and bought No Man’s Sky and hell yeah!

I also held out a long time for No Man’s Sky, then when I finally bought I thought much the same as you, that it was actually pretty good, but wait until you get about 70 hours in…. At that point I realized just how incredibly repetitive it all was, with you basically performing the same handful of actions over and over and over and over again. But I might try the new stuff – hopefully there’s some fairly significant new content there. Haven;t tried Fallout 76 yet, will probably wait till this time next year.


I’m 150 hours in and granted while I restarted after 35ish hours because NEXT hit and I wanted to see the new tutorial and have a smooth, safe game instead of hoping for a correct savegame conversion … I haven’t even yet gotten to vehicles or farms. Just starting out on the whole Freighter fleet thing, learning the ropes, not yet reached the point where I can fly to red or blue or green systems.


Ye God’s, which Fallout titles have you played ?


Little disappointed that the Lotro double points are for bonus points only, not the base points. It’s better than nothing i suppose.

Given the recent new “feature” in SCUM, glad you didn’t mention a “half off” sale. 🤣


Giving away Destiny 2 for free was a great idea for a game that had so much initial controversy. I rarely say this but as a new player to the franchise, the game really doesn’t begin until you’ve level capped and finished the main campaign. Even though I am enjoying all of the content that opens up at endgame, I’m still on the fence about purchasing the post launch content and Forsaken expansion for $30 but it is tempting.

Some of the games listed can be tried for free so if you’ve been hesitant, it a good time to install and give them a go before buying a BF discount.


I think Forsaken is worth it if you are enjoying yourself. I got the base game for free earlier this year (a friend who already owned it gave me his copy from humble bundle) and I had fun with it but eventually got bored and stopped.

Bought the expansion about a month ago (thanks WoW gold) and I have been playing it non-stop. I think between some of the system changes and how armor/weapon perks and mods work now it’s got a longer shelf life if you enjoy really optimizing your gear to fit your playstyle. I’ve already put more time into it than I did the original game and really I don’t see myself stopping soon. Actually thinking about leveling another class and doing it all again.
