Thanks for posting these, Bree. Was gonna adda note about DDO points and expansions being on sale, but Jinarra beta me to it. Instead I’ll go buy an expansion or two.

A trifling bit confused that the DDO black friday sales aren’t on here, as LOTRO’s are – I’m guessing they didn’t go live until after this was published? Either way, assuming this link works – here you go!

The Nintendo sale sure comes as a surprise. Last time I looked into it, Nintendo hated doing big sales because allowing players to purchase games at good discounts “devaluate” game in the eyes of players and make it harder to sell them at full price, or something of the kind.

If you hate yourself and love to grind, pick up Wurm Online. No other game will ever feel like as much of a grind again and you get to say, “This grind is nothing. I played Wurm Online.”

No.. I’m serious..

Then you should gift it to a friend

Or better yet, gift it to someone you don’t like…

Kind of disappointed that ESO isn’t having a crown sale.

that “special bundle” is everything I hate about cash shop bundles: it’s a pretty plain mount and then a mountain of premium consumables with dubious worth. (the mount upgrades are nice I guess)

Reader

It’s a pretty sweet mount, but I’ve already got a nice Kagouti.

At least it’s not a lockbox of premium goods and a plain mount–that you already have 40 of. 😭🤣

Where is that adorable baby goat from?🤔

That header image has me wondering if surrounding something with sparkling lights naturally makes it more desirable, or if years of playing MMOs has just conditioned me to be be attracted to things that sparkle.

Either way, I want that goat.
