There’s no Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week today because neither of this week’s new releases are very exciting.
But the digital storefronts are having some big Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, so if you’ve got a console in a publicly-available area, now’s the time to stock up on new titles. And I hope you had a good Thanksgiving!

Warp Zoned’s Weekly Warp-Up
The Thanksgiving holiday has made this a rather slow weekend for the gaming industry. And there wasn’t much happening at all if you weren’t out shopping for Black Friday bargains on the PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop, Xbox Games Store, and Amazon. However, all of those sales are still active, so if you’re looking for a new game, you might find something good to download for cheap.
