I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!
Today is Black Friday, also known as the day I don’t even take a step outside, much less go anywhere withing six miles of any kind of retail establishment. So of you may disagree with this philosophy. You may like the special brand of pain that this level of consumer frenzy delivers. I dunno.
Plus, there are still fantastic deals to be had online, from the comfort of your computer chair. Why go get trampled to death at Walmart when you can shop naked instead?
SUMO is offering a discount on their Omni chair, with free shipping. I don’t know if you’ve seen how big these chairs are, but I’m certain they’re not cheap to ship.
I’m a huge fan of SUMOs products. I have a bunch of their chairs in my house, and we’re fortunate enough to have them sponsor Digital Overload each year with tons of their comfy chairs, so our gamers don’t have to sit on the cold, concrete floor. SUMO sliding and SUMO wrestling is a regular occurance at Digital Overload. I’m talking hundreds of gamers working these chairs over for three days straight. I’ve seen these chairs put through their paces and I can vouch for not only their comfort, but their durability.
You know what else would make a great holiday gift? Season 2 of the Ctrl+Alt+Del Animated Series, which is now shipping to a mailbox near you. The mailbox is near you because it’s your mailbox. And you ordered Season 2. Which is why it’s coming to your mailbox.
In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb here and hypothesize that you could watch your brand new Season 2 DVD… while sitting on your brand new SUMO. Call me crazy, but I can see that happening.
I also feel it is my civic responsibility to point you to the incredible sale that Steam is having. Batman: Arkham Asylum at $25 for the next eight hours? Seven great LucasArts games for $50? Yes. Just… yes.
