5 Video Games to Look for on Black Friday

Black Friday is a day declared toward gaming galore—video games, gaming consoles, and related accessories are hitting the shelves at a discounted price. Black Friday falls on November 23rd, giving gamers less than a month to seek A Way Out to their local participating stores. Whether it’s working on your jumper shot in NBA 2K19 or hunting down your enemy in Assasins Creed Odessy, a variety of highly demanded games will be offered at a lower price for a limited amount of time. At GameTruck, it is our Call of Duty to provide you with 5 video games to look for on Black Friday!

Red Dead Redemption 2

Being 8 years since the first Red Dead Redemption, gamers were thrilled for the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. The highly anticipated game was released on October 26th, 2018, starting at a retail price of $60. Due to its newer release, retailers may not discount the individual game, but rather offer bundle deals. From late October to early November, Gamestop provided a bundle deal where if you purchase a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2, you can get $100 off any new Xbox One. So if you are looking for a new gaming console, you may essentially be able to get this game for free.


If you are a proud owner of a Playstation 4 (PS4), this exclusive game is expected to go on sale just for you. Insomniac games created a unique first-person experience through the life of Spider-man. With its release in early September of this year, many gamers have had nothing but positive reviews for Marvel’s Spiderman. Aside from the video game’s graphics and special features, it has been said to be one of the best superhero video games to ever be made. Throughout the month of November, keep an eye on wholesale stores, such as Walmart, for this action-packed game to decrease in price.

God of War

Retailed around $40-$60, God of War is another PS4 exclusive that enthusiasts are expecting to see go on sale. Since this game was released in April of this year, it is likely that this mythology inspired game will have a limited-time discount for the holidays. Stores such as Gamestop, Best Buy, Walmart and Target have provided gamers with excellent Black Friday sales in previous years, so be on the lookout for unbeatable deals this month.


Released in January of 2018, Celeste is a user interface game that is available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and on computer operating systems, such as MacOS and Microsoft Windows. The video game takes you through the journey of a young woman named Madeline who takes on a journey upon the Celeste Mountain. Facing obstacles and self-doubt, Madeline is determined to get to the top of the mountain, in which the game is then won. You shouldn’t have to “climb mountains” and “avoid obstacles” to find a video game at a decent price. Look for Celeste in stores and online on Black Friday.


Bring your soccer skills to life with FIFA 19. With advanced features and graphics, soccer fans are kicking and screaming over this game that released in September. Available for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, this game retails around $60. About this time last year, FIFA 18’s prices were significantly slashed, so we assume the same trend will continue for FIFA 19.

How to Keep Your Kids Safe During Halloween

Halloween is easily one of the most exciting holidays for kids. The idea of dressing up in their favorite superhero costume and getting candy from everyone is a dream coming true. For parents, however, it can be a stressful holiday. Strangers giving candy to my kids? Walking on the streets in the night? Streets crowded with people making it easy to get lost? A lot of kids wearing the same costume? Worry not, parents! We put together some tips to make Halloween a fun holiday for the kids and stress-free for you!

Check the Candy Before You Let Your Kids Eat It

After receiving the candy or when you get home after a fun Halloween night, check them. Does your child have any allergies and you need to make sure the candy is safe? Do you approve or disapprove of that particular candy for your kids? Is the candy a choking hazard for your young child? Do any of them seem unwrapped or contaminated?. It’s not possible to check every piece of candy your child collected (unless you eat them all and make your children very sad) but it is possible to at least vet them for major problems.

Buy or Rent Costumes That Have Reflective Stripes

It’s not unusual for the darkness that comes with night time to affect our vision, especially in huge crowds of people in costumes. It can be even harder to spot your child if there are other kids wearing similar costumes. When buying your child a costume, try to find one that has reflective signs, or are brighter or unique. If there are no such options, buy reflective or shine stripes separately and tape them to the costume.

Review Information and Accessories with Your Kids

If your kids are going to trick-or-treat by themselves or with a group of friends, review what is allowed and expected of them. Review the route, explain how to call 911 and other important numbers if needed, tell them that they should not enter anyone’s houses to get treats, agree on the time they should be back home, and other important information. Don’t forget to pack them with accessories that may come in handy: flashlights, batteries, a charged phone with saved contact number etc.

Prepare Your Home for a Successful Halloween

The same way you want your kids to have a fun, worry-free Halloween night, you want other kids to as well! Prepare your home for trick or treaters. If you decide not to participate, leave the candies outside or simply put up a sign saying you’re not participating in the event. If you do wish to be a part of it, take any dangerous things away from your door entrance, like garden hoses or bikes, and make sure your lights are on. Also, consider putting up a couple of Halloween decorations so kids will feel more welcomed!
