We’re quickly approaching the end of November, which means Black Friday 2019 is just around the corner.

You’ll often find additional promo codes or discounts available, helping you get the best deal on consoles, games, and more. You check out directly from Google, and you’ll get free shipping above a certain minimum (usually $25-$35).While Google’s Black Friday ad may be a little sparse, as far as game-related sales are concerned, there are still some good deals to be had, particularly if you’re looking to pick up a Nintendo Switch.

Fortnite: Where To Dance At Pipe Man, Hay Man, And Timber Tent (Week 7 Challenge)

Fortnite: Where To Dance At Pipe Man, Hay Man, And Timber Tent (Week 7 Challenge)

The first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 has been extended into next year, which means you have more time to complete any challenges from this season. That includes Week 7’s Trick Shot missions. As usual, most of the challenges from the batch are fairly straightforward and can be completed easily enough with a little persistence, but there’s at least one that may give you some trouble, and that’s to dance at the Pipe Man, Hay Man, and Timber Tent. If none of that made any sense to you, don’t worry; we show you how to complete the challenge below.Where Are The Pipe Man, Hay Man, And Timber Tent Locations?As the challenge states, you’ll need to dance in front of three different structures to complete this mission, and they may be hard to find if you aren’t already familiar with Fortnite’s new map. Fortunately, they’re not too hard to find, but they’ll require a bit of leg work to get to. The Pipe Man is sitting on a hill near the southern tip of the island, just past the snowy mountain that’s to the south of Misty Meadow. The Hay Man, meanwhile, is in the southwest corner of Frenzy Farm. Finally, the Timber Tent can be found directly south of Sweaty Sands.How To Complete The ChallengeOnce you know where all three structures are, make your way to them one by one, then use a dance emote in their general vicinity. Fortunately, you don’t need to dance in front of all three within a single round, so the most expedient way to complete the challenge will likely be to visit one landmark, dance in front of it, get yourself eliminated, then jump into another match and head to another until you’ve visited all three.As previously mentioned, Chapter 2, Season 1 has been extended into February 2020, giving you quite a bit more time to complete all the challenges from this season. Epic says the reason for the extension is so that it can roll out more content for the game, including new events and some kind of “live experience.” In the meantime, if you need help completing any earlier challenges, you can find all our maps and guides in our full Fortnite Chapter 2 challenges roundup.

Sony Has An Excellent PS4 Slim Bundle For Black Friday 2019

Sony Has An Excellent PS4 Slim Bundle For Black Friday 2019

PS4 Slim 1TB bundle with God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and The Last of Us Remastered – $200Update: Sony has confirmed the PS4 holiday bundle is real as part of its official Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019 deals, and it’ll be available at all major retailers starting next week. The PS4 Slim bundle includes three PS4-exclusive games: God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition, and The Last of Us Remastered. Other Black Friday PS4 deals this year include a PS4 Pro for $300, DualShock controllers for $40, and more. See PS4 holiday bundle at Amazon Original story follows.It’s still early in the Black Friday season, but it’s likely this PS4 Slim bundle will be one of the best savings you’ll find if you’re shopping around for a console. You won’t be able to snag it until the end of the month, but it’s best to know about it now, so you can keep an eye out for it as you do your Black Friday shopping.On October 24, notable Twitter user and deal-hunter Wario64 reported he’d heard of a PS4 holiday bundle with three PlayStation hits–Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us Remastered, and 2018’s God of War–and a new Black Friday ad from American retailer Belk basically confirms that deal will be available. Belk’s Black Friday ad shows the aforementioned PS4 bundle will be available for $200 USD starting November 24.Note that Belk’s Black Friday ad shows God of War III Remastered alongside the bundle instead of 2018’s acclaimed sequel. Wario64 purports the “ad made a mistake,” which is highly plausible, but unfortunately, we can’t be sure at this time.Belk Black Friday ad shows PlayStation 4 bundle for $199.99 (though shows God of War 3 Remastered instead of God of War, I think the ad made a mistake) https://t.co/ZsDxnadS6j pic.twitter.com/w41DZCLCE5 — Wario64 (@Wario64) October 31, 2019It’s unclear when the deal will end, but we expect it to last through the Black Friday weekend while supplies last–and those last three words are key. During Prime Day, similar PS4 bundles were among the first deals to sell out, so if you have your eyes on this bundle, be ready to go when the deal goes live. As a Sony bundle, it should be available at all the major retailers beyond just Belk.During Black Friday, Belk will have a variety of other deals, but in terms of gaming, nothing else…
