GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Are you biting on any Black Friday deals?

Here comes the snow. No matter how much I shouted at the window, the damn Winter weather is sneaking in. If you're dealing with bad weather wherever you are, please make sure you stay safe at all times. See you in a few, short hours.

The holiday season is always a rough one when it comes to videogames. Gaming is an expensive hobby as is, but the game industry really lets loose with its big guns around the months of Oct/Nov/Dec. This year is no different, with Nintendo unleashing some of their biggest brands in recent weeks. The desire to pick up all those games is there, but the funding might be a tad harder to find!

Most have the option of asking for a few of these games from family/friends for the holiday season, so that's always nice. With that said, the options of gifting might not always be the best way, nor is a method to grab all the goodies you want. We wait all year for these games, so when they finally come out on store shelves, it can be quite hard to ignore the call! Thankfully we also have Black Friday to help us.

Black Friday has become absolutely insane in recent years. Store deals that have people willing to trample their fellow man in order to save a few bucks. I think the whole thing is a bit crazy, but I can understand the desire to grab some personal goodies at a cheaper price. It can be a bit of a scary experience braving the real-world lines and surviving the day, but most make it home with their new games/hardware as a reward!

While the Wii U itself isn't seeing too many Black Friday deals, there's plenty of great offers on software for the platform. On top of that, 3DS hardware and software is getting the special treatment with all sorts of bundles and deals. Plenty of options out there and multiple AAA titles to purchase. With all that electronic goodness out there, I'd love to hear what deals you guys are buying! Are you getting new hardware or software...or both!? Leave us a comment and let us know!

Club Nintendo facing scamming issue

Unfortunately, there are some bad people out there. Surely there are worse things going on than Club Nintendo scamming, but that doesn't make it right. We're sad to say that some gamers out there are scamming Club Nintendo by stealing codes from games they don't own. They don't even have to purchase a game to get the code. They've just figured out how to change a few numbers in the pin to claim games they don't own. That means you might find yourself legitimately purchasing a game, only to learn that the Club Nintendo code doesn't work. A call to customer service can clear things up, but obviously there's a bigger issue that needs to be worked out.
